Slowing the hell down.

Being sidelined with various respiratory bugs blows and sucks.  Yet here I am.  I’ve been off for approximately one week over the past two weeks.  First it was a mild case of pneumonia(if you can call it that), followed by a cold.  I’ve been passing the time at home eating various foodstuffs and resting as best I could, but even I get restless.

I’ve been playing Destiny and MGSV to pass the time.  Some highlights include:

  • Taking down Oryx and building my light level to 303.  For the longest time I struggled since I couldn’t find people to raid with.  Especially since the last group I was in was especially meme-averse.  Now things aren’t so bad.
  • Beating MGSV and getting the “True” end.  Surreal as it was, I liked it.  Puts everything in order.  And fuck Huey.
  • Hopefully we’ll have some new comics soon.  Our artist is currently having technical difficulties.
  • And with the San Diego Asian Film Festival underway, our multimedia guru Brian is going to be quite busy.  I suppose it’ll be time to do something productive in the meantime.

I also got Crunchyroll and upgraded my Hulu so there’s no commercials.  RWBY volume 3 is awesome, Love Live is awesome, and so is Hidan no Aria AA.

Welp, I’m going to run a stream and see if anyone’s down for Oryx.  See you there!

Speak up.

I’ll never understand this…If you have a problem with someone, why not go handle it like a man? I’m not saying go out and fight that person but, go address the issue you have, and handle it. Talk about things before it turns into something worse. Instead most people would rather keep it to themselves, having those thoughts brew and fester inside, making themselves more and more angry. Others will take the slander approach and add lies and bs to the mix and talk about the issue with everyone and their moms. Everyone BUT, the person they have a problem with of course. I couldn’t tell you which one is worse because they both suck!

Let me put this in a way some of you might better understand…

Most people who have this issue probably think they’re so awesome…kind of like a Charizard. In realty, they’re more like a Garbador…you’re literally trash.
For all you kids/teens/ and heaven forbid, grown ass men who are having this problem. SPEAK UP! GROW SOME NUTTS! AND HANDLE IT!
life would be so much better for you in the end.


SSB plays: Final Fantasy VII!

Happy Father’s Day!

To celebrate SquareEnix and Sony’s announcement of a Final Fantasy VII remake, Brian and I have started a somewhat spoiler-free playthrough of Final Fantasy VII.  It’s not exactly clean, and I talk about Jessie Spano.  Saved by the Bell!


kung fury


Dinosaurs, Vikings, Chainguns, Ninjas, Lamborghini Countaches, Kung-Fu Renegade Cops, Nazis, Hacking….it’s like Laser Unicorns peeked into my retro psyche and pulled out what was inside.  Maybe I should quit now because I can never hope to achieve the level of awesome that this movie does.

Nah, I’ll still keep shooting for it.  In my own way.


Destiny Digest #4 – The Kutaragis


Atheon ain’t got shit on us!

The Kutaragis, the handsomest clan in the galaxy!

People are still kinda on the fence about Destiny.  I guess I’m either a shitty gamer for liking Destiny, or I have friends.  I’m fairly sure I fall in the latter.  To that end, longtime friend of SSB and sometimes striking-disciple Fernando formed the Kutaragis.  The Kutaragis are the handsomest clan in the galaxy.

We’re a clan more focused on raiding, though if the Iron Banner is up, we’ll do PVP.

To that end, I’m going to be featuring each of our clan members in future installments of SSB’s Destiny Digest.  For now, this is our active roster.  You can find us all on the PSN, on the PS4 version of Destiny.

Team Leader – Fernando Jay “silentjay64” Huerto
Lead Strategist – Jairus “ONYXRage” Francois
Lead Breakdancer – Virgil “PapasPotatoes” Papa
1st Commander of the Japanese Armed Division – Thanh “AgentG55” Hoang
Lead Mechanic – Cristian “Gouki84” Cervantes
Raquetball Wizard – Sherwin “Santoku1” Ginez
And the SSB members part of “The Kutaragis”
PR wizard and bullet sponge – Francis “lulz1” Bautista
Networking mage and head of HR – Abe “happymexico” DelosReyes
Our allies:
Lester and Mylene Aslarona – “lenejenius”

If you ever see us in game, don’t be afraid to say hello!  Drop us a friend request if you’d like!



Yakuza 4’s “For Faith” finally deciphered!



Thanks to youtube user “jackisarocknroll”, here are the correct lyrics for the theme song of Yakuza 4.  Apparently he got it on a soundtrack CD that came on a preorder of Ryu Ga Gotoku:Ishin! (the samurai spinoff game)

I figured I’d post it here just in case that youtube comment gets lost.

Violence is meaningless.
You have to see that.
So now we’re all so gracious.

But it doesn’t come to actually feel it.
The thought is raised to real world.

If you had the love somewhere
to protect and you can survive.

Selfish deed is not freedom.
Even if it falls down.

Selfish deed is not freedom.
Can’t justify.

Selfish deed is not freedom.
Even if it’s so sad.

Now walking ahead
with pride
to the next stage.

Guess that about covers it.



Destiny Digest #3 : I kicked Atheon’s ass.


On Friday night, I earned the “Raider” trophy as I finally beat Atheon.  I was in a 6-main raid with an acquaintance of mine met through our own Jonathan.  I was brought in as a ringer, since their slot was open.  How can I sum up my experience running the Vault of Glass?

Intense.  From opening the vault door, and making my way to Atheon, the entire raid didn’t drop in intensity.  It simply changed form.  From defending, attacking, hiding, and even platforming, the entire dungeon blended seamlessly to form one of the best MMO dungeons I’ve played in a long time.  Not to mention I got 2/3 raid gear armor pieces on my first try :).


Loitering. Because.

With that in mind, I can probably say that Destiny is the standout GOTY for me.  I haven’t had this much fun playing a shooter in a looooooooooooooong time.

In other news, my Extra Live team, “Team Kupo Yo”, reached its fundraising goal!  We raised over $1000 for the Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego.  Big shoutout to our very own Abe, who was participating in the actual stream from the get-go, Jennice for being the team captain and getting the whole thing organized, Thanh for running the away operations, and to all the teammates and people that donated money, thank you!

What’s next for SSB?  More Destiny, more humor, and hopefully more comic.  Admittedly, I’m still working on the last part.




SSB’s Destiny Digest #1 – A New Loot Cave?!

As we all know, Bungie’s hotfix closed off the “Loot Cave”, a hot area for farming drops.  Leave it to the boffins at IGN to discover a new farming area.  But does it work?

Yes…and no.  Yes in the the fact that the loot cave does spawn enemies at a pretty crazy rate.  No..because you’ve gotta get it set up just right.  Here’s a breakdown.


As pictured above, the loot cave is located in the Rocketyard, in Old Russia.  It’s tucked away in a corner, away from everything.  Moreover, the distance away from the spawn point is quite far.    On top of the spawn point’s position, there are numerous other spawn points near this optimal vantage point and they have to be cleared before the loot cave can spawn monsters.  It’s advantageous to go as a group, so one person can camp the point, and other people can clear the mobs in the Rocketyard.  And there are quite a few of them.

Also, Xur’s location this weekend is in the Tower Hangar, in the back of the bar.  Sounds like where I’m gonna be tonight.


I’ll be back tomorrow with another Destiny Digest.  See you soon!
