You just have to look at things from a different angle.

Another summer has come upon SSB, and we’re sorta hard at work.  Con season’s coming up, y’know.  Anime Expo and Comic Con, naturally.  I’ve got some new comics on the horizon that are gonna be up as soon as I get ’em, so there’s that to look forward to.

On the gaming side of things, Persona 5.  Holy fuck.  Nier Automata.  Yakuza 0.  Can I just say that Japanese game devs are kicking ass again?  Hell, I’m going to be cosplaying again.  This time, I’m going to be Kazuma Kiryu from the Yakuza series.

Thailand was amazing.  Hot as fuck, but the Thais are exceedingly friendly.  Guess it’s that whole Southeast Asian mindset.  Honestly felt like the Philippines.  With more Muay Thai and spice.

Japan was…Japan.  I was honestly glad that I could spend more time with my friends out there, and seeing the Kanda shrine was honestly worth it.

There’s gonna be a new comic out that’s covering basically what I’ve been going through post-trip.  Nonstop training and MMA.  Look out for it!

Other than that, I don’t have anything else to update you all on.  Currently our comic anthology is in its compilation stage, we’ve gotta find all of our art and compile it, and hopefully have some other articles as well.

Milestones

I’m gonna be 34 years old this Friday.  Yep.  Time flies when you’re having fun.  I’m not gonna lie to you guys, it’s been an absolute blast making the occasional comic and blog entry with you all.  And for that, I’m grateful.

Also, SSB’s been around for close to 9 years now.  I really need to nail down a definite start date for SSB…I’ll wait for my Timehop to let me know when I made that post with Jenny.

Anyway, I seriously can’t express how happy I am to be around such cool fuckin’ people every day of my life.  Just some things to look forward to over the next few weeks:

  • More Hood Tours.
  • More playthroughs
  • Destiny’s “Look Back” streaming
  • And more comics.  For sure.
  • Otakufighter posts again!

Soooo, to Jared, Ericka, Brian, Justin, Josh, Jairus, Jesse, Mario, you have no idea how much I appreciate you guys putting up with my random shenanigans and even more random schedule.  Thank you.  I appreciate all of you guys more than you can ever know.

I blacked out for a minute.

Okay, Destiny.  All that’s left now is the grind to 400.

My Titan is at 397 now, and man, I had one helluva run yesterday.  Ferris and I made a group on the100 and reddit, and we ran Heroic Mode Wrath of the Machine, and managed to get Challenge Mode done as well.  I must have done something to please RNGEsus because I got the complete Heroic Made Raid Armor set.  I must say that my Titan does look rather fetching.

You can review my current gear in the gallery above.

Let’s see what lies in store for us tomorrow…election results notwithstanding.

#N2B

So…yeah, this one took a little longer than expected, but it turned out great.  This one was written by yours truly and drawn out by shida214 over on fiverr.

Yes, this is truly how SSB gets down before a con.

SSB: A Force For Good!

I started SSB a while back with cruel intentions.  Since then, I’ve gone through some changes in my life, and so have my teammates.  We’ve all come out of it as better people (I think).  With that came a realization, that in order for SSB to truly shine, we’ve gotta do some good shit.

Kudos to Brian for making this awesome banner!

Not that the shit we’ve done already wasn’t good, but I’m talkin’ about stuff that’s more charitable.  We need to be geek heroes!  Sooooo, I’m announcing my inaugural charity stream for Extra Life.

I’m going to be part of a fireteam that’s heading deep into the Soviet Cosmodrome to defeat the greatest twizzler infestation the likes of which have never been seen.  That’s right, I’m going to be streaming the Wrath of the Machine raid in Destiny’s Rise of Iron DLC.  Keeping me from getting into too much trouble are Clan SSB’s own OnyxRAGE and Ferr1sB.

My goal is to raise 200 bucks for the Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego.  Gotta start out small, but hey, anything helps!  We’re going to be running the raid on November 5, at 8:30 PM PDT.

This will be streamed live on my Twitch channel.  You can also check out my campaign page here!

Please donate if you can, and even if you can’t, support and spread the word!!

From the CEO’s desk: Stand Tall.

One of my cuzzos posted this on his facebook today. It’s the scans from Amazing Spiderman #36. If you haven’t read it already, I highly suggest you do. To sum it all up, Spidey and co. deal with the 9/11 attacks, and all the aftermath.

This comic is probably one of the most powerful chapters in the entire Marvel universe. One page stands out in particular, and I’m going to post it here.

I’m not going to go too in depth as to what I was feeling when it all happened, but I will say this.  America has come a long way from then.  We’ve still got a ways to go, but I know that we can do it.  We’ve gotta stand tall.

That’s my, no, our promise to you, our readers.  We’ll continue to stand tall.
