[Beta] Omnistone Journey (100 Wins)

ivern

100 bloody battles have been won on the Howling Abyss using the power of the Omnistone! This keystone isn’t really all that good in general. The damage output is quite low, even on champions that can benefit from all keystones. Take also into consideration that fights never cease on this map. I barely get to 1300 damage on average. Maybe I’m not using it well? I do tend to miss on activating all of my keystones, but then again, some situations require you to take your time and be patient. Utility wise, the Omnistone is… better than nothing I guess. I wish they could include Guardian and US in the shuffle as well, at least for HA. I understand why they were not included in first place, SR always takes priority overall…

The champion who scored most wins up to now using the Omnistone is Ivern. I think he is OK for HA, but with Omnistone… It’s not like his damage output changes all that much. If anything, it hurts his utility more as a whole. Still, he is our top guy… for now.

Account level is at 29. So close to 30… All 450 and 1350 BS champions have been obtained, except for Zilean.

I screen and save every win. I thought about making an archive and uploading it, but I think I’ll hold off until we get some decent numbers for this project.

As a reward for reaching this simple milestone, I will include some additional stuff for this project:

Every Boost provided from a stranger would net this project 1 Milk Coin. [Party members do not count!]

Every champion who reaches level 5 will earn additional 5 Milk Coins.

I can see the potential death in this project, if at any point the Omnistone gets removed or changed significantly. Until the grim time comes though, I should just do my best and try to score as much as possible.

Next milestone – 1000 Wins!

Answering some of the worst questions I’ve ever read online

jasm

Q: I love Anime!!!

A: There are but exactly four Anime shows that I actually enjoy. Everything else is either complete garbage or mediocre, to the point where it gets really boring after a few episodes. Unironically, for fun and giggles, yes! Anime is great!

Q: Hey loser! Where is your girlfriend?

A: I’ve never been really dedicated in pursuing love and lasting relationships. For one thing, the issue comes from the fact that I have a really awful personality, which I tend to reveal to people once I get comfortable with them. The other gatekeeper is the fact that I am quite shy, so making the first steps is usually a real struggle. I also have issues regarding obsession. The rest I blame on work and studies.

Q: I personally enjoy the new “Star Wars” movies…

A: I always loved “The Empire Strikes Back”. The separation of the main characters, their adventures and the eventual reunion, along with Vader’s ultimate revelation. The battle on Hoth is also one of my favorite in the “Star Wars” movies, even though it’s not as spectacular as many others. I just like how the Snowspeeders handle in battle the AT-AT units.

Condom Man DONE!

Q: Sega does what Nintendon’t!

A: I just really like the Game Gear and its library of games.

Q: Well, this season I reached Diamond 3 playing mainly Jarvan jungle and I really think that I have improved over the last few years.

A: The thing about video games is that usually people don’t want to talk about them, even while they are playing them. There are a few freaks of nature here and there though.

Q: Roa- chan is so cute…

Virtualtubers vary from O.K. to being awfully boring most of the time. Surprisingly, putting a 3D animated character on your screen during LP or streaming does not really impress me as much as I thought it would. Though I did something similar recently and I have been considering jumping into this awful trend. It really depends on what day I’m gonna get soup for lunch.

CMan - Aladdin edition DONE!

Q: Why and when should you follow your dreams?

A: If there is any flavor that I think would ruin a perfectly good beverage, that would be success itself. I am quite lazy and irresponsible by nature, I don’t need a reason for it, really.

Q: Which Touhou would you fuck?

A: Akemi Homura.

Q: You are not funny!

A: I’m not.

/ On another note, I would like to share the fact that I really dislike the facehuggers from the Alien franchise. There is something that makes me feel really uneasy when I look at them and boy, let me tell you about all the awful nightmares that I’ve had that involves those disgusting creatures…

Good Night!

RA Invasion [Part 15] – Quality of invasion changes

win98

It’s been a while, but here we are with another RA Invasion post. Since I’ve started streaming, I’ve been feeling quite good about my work, mainly in terms of having actual source for solidifying its quality. Looking back on how I manage during streams, I feel like my play style tends to be pretty rough and unpolished most of the time. However, while that might be the case, the instances of improvement do tend to shine quite well despite that and it’s something that I’ve never manged to observe before. To be fair, I like watching people improve, it gives me a great motivation to do so myself. Watching my own streams does that as well, as weird as it might seem. “Ah, so I can do that…” is what comes to mind more than often, which overall leaves me with an impression that where video game difficulty lies, it’s just a matter of time for one to adapt.

Among a fair number of games that I’ve cleaned up in the past few weeks, I did a few new ones recently. Clean up and old revisions… I don’t really mind putting them over stuff like the Omnistone stream and even maybe doing them during the weekend. They are fun and I feel pretty comfortable when it comes to streaming my activities with them. I don’t know why…

Lala the Magical [NES]

A recently released NES homebrew game, “Lala the Magical” is a short, but pretty good platformer. I really like the sprite work in this game and the level design in general. The controls are pretty good and the game puts up a decent challenge. Among the usual run and jump, you also get to summon platforms underneath yourself once you go past the first level. The game really does a good job of getting the best of that ability. The levels are pretty linear and usually, progress from room to room is done via unlocking doors by finding a switch for them. The plot of this game is pretty laid back, where a witch named Lala gets bored with studying and instead, submits into thievery in order to be able to go sight seeing and looting ancient gemeralds. It’s all good in the end and everyone is fine with that, all is forgiven with a game of poker. Well, not really. Lala’s design is pretty lewd, I can’t hold myself over pointing that fact. Deliciously lewd! There is something very appealing and relaxing about the stages themselves. They feel like actual locations that I would like to visit? Maybe it’s just my nostalgia for the NES kicking or maybe the game is just that good? Who knows?

The platforms that you summon underneath you flicker for a bit, before they disappear. What I don’t like about that is that sometimes the flickering doesn’t occur or the platform loses visual appearance as it starts to flicker and in both of those cases it screws with your timing.

In the second stage, if you run out of time, you won’t lose a life and on your next try, the BGM for the level will change. The soundtrack of this game is pretty nice, especially both tracks of the second level. I really enjoyed listening to those.

I would really love to try more of the games that the Mojon Twins made. There is also a DOS Lala the Magical…? Gotta check that for sure at some point…

Windows 98 [NES]

Windows 98 DONE!

I did this one on stream as a sort of practical joke? I don’t know what to say about it really. It’s a Chinese unlicensed… can it be even called a game? I’ve had fun with it, so maybe? Despite navigating through several menus and images, there is not much to this one. What more could there have been to this, really? Thus, we end this post with lots of questions to which we don’t need answers to. Have a great weekend!

Apart from what I usually focus on, there is also the addition of the Omnistone Journey project. It’s a recent thing that I’ve been thinking about, regarding as to how I want to handle League of Legends as a whole.

The project goal would be to win as many ARAM mode games as possible, using the Omnistone keystone only. Along the way, this will also set additional things up for me in terms of obtaining all champions and potentially, a level 5 for each of them. I am not sure at this time if I want to do something with the level- up system. A goal of reaching level 1000 seems kinda nice…

——————————————————————————————————————————————-

Apart from the Omnistone Joruney streams, I am prone to end early the others if the goals for them are reached. For a time being, I am willing to settle for doing one site award for RA streams. As for the entry one, I would do so as long as I beat the game with all LR19 regulations being covered.

Crusher Masher Mako-chan [Arcade]

Crusher Mako-chan 1.2 DONE!

With the new decade upon us, this lab room is set to expand further! As of today, there will be a new priority on the acquirement of dreams and large doses of peppermint juice! However, the deposit only accepts the so rare milk coins, which can only be harvested via the 1- coin completion of Arcade titles. Am I up to the task? This will be a volume that would truly challenge and hone my skill level…

1- coin = 5 M(C)

Crusher Mako-chan 1.1 DONE!

“Crusher Mako-chan” is a goofy gambling Arcade game that features a girl who helps people around by punching large and solid things until they crumble to dust. It’s a very short game that can be completed in around few minutes, but it’s heavily affected by RNG, to the point were a run can end on the very first level, right from the first punch that you land. You mash one button to keep the punches going, but very rarely you’ll get to punch something in time through its durability pool. Power- ups play a big role in this game, especially the Pepper and the Super Punch ones. The pepper lowers your attack output and in a nutshell, it’s just a sign of a certain game over. The Super Punch one is the bread and butter of this game. It gives you a second chance to complete the level, which requires you to… that’s right! Keep hammering that button! If you do well and the RNG swings in your favor, Mako-chan will transform into grotesque, steroids- filled muscled flesh monster and perform an attack that destroys the solid object in one hit. This type of humor really brings me back to a time where I enjoyed stuff like “Dokuro-chan” and “Dai Mahou Touge”. It was the type of humor that revolves around a sweet looking girl with a dark side, which went to an extend of obscurity. I love that stuff even to this day… Do they still make these? I haven’t checked in a long time… It feels like they don’t do them anymore and I don’t know why I have that impression on the world around me.

Crusher Mako-chan 1.3 DONE!

I’ve spent a good time translating the debug mode of this game. I think there is a higher difficulty that affects power- up drops and objects durability, which made my winning run quite the breath taker. Can’t say my finger enjoyed it either! There is also an option which enables you to just hold down the button for an auto- fire, in case you don’t feel like going through all that button- mashing pain that I did. Hopefully, my new keyboard can last until the end of this year… Hopefully… Overall, this game brought a smile to my face along with some chuckles here and there. I love Mako-chan’s design and the short and silly plot fits in just perfectly. Add the shitty gameplay and we have ourselves a platinum winner!

Did I mention how awesome the soundtrack of this game is? How come nobody has dumped it yet?…
