This is a picture of me playing the Nintendo Wii, I love my Wii. Had lots of great times on it playing games like Smash Brothers and Mario Kart and Twilight Princess, and a game I really loved called Super Mario Galaxy. The story takes place around 2009? A couple of years after the Wii came out. So one day a friend of mine Matt messaged me telling me he got a Wii, I thought great, about time he got a Wii. So I congratulated him, then he asked the question. :I He asked whether he can borrow some games and I was like 'HMMMMMMMM SHIT'. Well Matt is a nice guy, pretty honest and pretty generous. I usually am pretty generous too but when it comes to games, I hate lending it out
Apologies for 3DS Swapnote/Letterbox SuspensionAs you may know, a few days ago Nintendo suspended 3DS's swapnote/letterbox (Depending on which country your from) system, due to users exchanging offensive material. What Letterbox is? its a software that allows you to write letters or draw doodles or attach pictures and send it to your friends. Its a great little fun software, I always liked Letterbox, I use it a lot to draw funny pictures of pikachu and top hats to friends. And... also for.. umm...... *deep breath 1 2 3* Ok. Ahhem, I am guilty of exchanging adult material to my 3DS buddy, :iconohgodwhyplz: and no Im not talking about naked photos of myself or anything like that ok! But of some sexy pics I found on the net... in 3D. Its mostly for laughs. its just interesting to see those 'pictures' in 3D. Also funny that we are using an innocent child friendly console toy for this purpose. SO JUST FOR FUN, me and my friend sent the sexy pics we found on the net to each other.

PS4 vs Xbox One who wins?If you like videogames like me, chances are you have been aware of what's happening in E3. Everyone's talking about it now. Since a few weeks ago with the whole TV TV TV TV TV TV TV SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS Xbox conference I have been pretty unhappy with things that are going on with Microsoft. You can't play used games, you need to log in to your internet at least once a day to play games, and it feels like you are actually RENTING a game rather than owning it if you know what I mean. OK then at E3 today they announce the price for the Xbox One.. wait for it. $499 USD. Mmmmk alright, I kinda expected it to be expensive.. but here's the part that surprised EVERYBODY, it costs 429 Pounds and 499 Euros. Wait a minute what? So I quickly pulled out my little pink calculator and found out that for the UK thats equivalent of $666 USD (Interesting its also the number for Satan) and 662 USD for the Europeans. Yo WHAT THE HELL? Why do the people at europe hPS4 vs Xbox One who wins?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A RetrospectiveHello Ryceballs! So I was looking through my god awful gallery the other day and had a nostalgic moment when I saw some of my old artworks, I am happy to say that I have improved over the 5 years stay here on Deviantart (Thank god...). So I just want to show you a few of my earlier artworks and talk a little about the story behind each one of them. I must admit that the early artworks you see on this list is not REALLY the first few artworks I uploaded on Deviantart, but I have since got rid of my even older ones because I really really dislike them, I don't want you guys to vomit blood ok. If you guys REALLY want to see the ones I have deleted.. I guess I can dig into the abyss of my old computer and find it. Anyways here goes!A Retrospective2 years ago in Personal More Like This

I might as well begin with an apology for a journal I posted half a year ago back in December 2012 about the misleading fun and joy I had with the Wii U. I say misleading because at the time yes I was having lots of fun with games like New Super Mario Brothers Wii U and Scribblenauts Unlimited and Nintendoland. And sure! They were great fun, I mean those are games that I have finished already (after like a month, cos its so freakin easy! Difficulty level where did you go) but I might still one day go back to it and replay it from the beginning just for fun's sake, but then now what..? Its mid May 2013 and there hasn't been any new games that ain't either cross platform or ones I ain't interested in. And trust me if the Wii U game is cross platform I would definately get the PS3 or 360 version because 1) The controller's more comf

That art thief SOB in the Artist AlleyOk here it is, the long awaited journal about that art thief guy at Animania a few weeks back, I promised I will write about it and here it is.

This whole thing occurred in an anime convention that has been going downhill since a few years back, every year it gets worse and worse, to the point that I am now calling it Emptimania. It is no secret that the management is terrible, and that includes making sure that there are no bootleg stores around.... I don't know if they are just ignorant that there are bootleg stores there, or whether they dont give a duck because hey they get money from people getting a table. So anyway I was at the artist alley selling my things like usual, then a couple of tables down I noticed a guy, he looked fami
Alleyway IncidentHiya Ryceballs. I left out something on my previous journal, something I kinda wanted to talk about but was a bit scared to... But I have decided that maybe its better to get it off my chest. This is a true story and it happened two weeks ago while I was in Melbourne for Armageddon Expo, it was a sunday night, I had a long day selling artworks and I was back in the hotel room chilling, at around 10pm I got hungry and realised I don't have much to eat, I didn't wanna call room service because I wasn't sure if food is still available that late. So knowing the 24/7 grocery store is just a block away, I decided to head out to buy a cup noodle or something. It was pretty dark outside with a bit of rain as well, much to my annoyance, but I was really really hungry. Now the proper way to get to the grocery store is to walk around the block, OR I can take a shortcut and go through the alleyway.... I tend to always walk around the block as I didn't wanna get mugged, if Batman has taught me anytAlleyway Incident1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Wack'em Sinteeeeek 13HD ReviewHiya Ryceballs. As some of you know, I was askin for opinions a few journals back about the Wacom Cintiq, you lovely people gave me some great advice and tips and one even went as far as to find me an Australian website with a cheaper price. And she saved me $200, so special thanks to KokoroKanon for doing that. So yes I have been using the Wacom for more than a week now, I didn't wanna write a review until I get the SmudgeGuard, a SmudgeGuard is pretty much looks like a glove cut in half, it looks like a futuristic glove in Minority Report, the reason I wanted a SmudgeGuard is because I tend to get sweaty hands so I did not wanna dirty the Cintiq screen at all, it costed me around $20 to get that. An alternative is just buy a cheap glove and cut off the top three fingers.... you can then use the cut off three fingers glove and put it on your head so you can pretend to be chicken.Wack'em Sinteeeeek 13HD Review1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Questioned by the Hong Kong PoliceSo where was I? Oh yes I was gonna talk about my experiences with the Hong Kong police, so here goes. OK this is the problem, whenever I visit Hong Kong I always have the fear of being questioned by the police, well not exactly fear because I've got nothing to hide, but whenever I am alone walking on the street and a policeman on patrol sees me, they would ALWAYS 100% stop and ask for my ID. For those ain't familiar with how things work in Hong Kong is that if they see a teenager (Especially male) on the street not in their school uniform during school time or with dyed hair or pretty much just 'gangster' or suspicious looking, they have the right to stop you in the middle of nowhere and question you. Now I match every bit of suspicion possible, what they are trying to check is if there's any sort of crime around the area so they can narrow down the suspects, or to check whether you are legal to be in Hong Kong, or whether you've got drugs on you.

Okami 2 on Wii U and latest Tomb Rider reference?Hello thereOkami 2 on Wii U and latest Tomb Rider reference?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A few days ago some friends of mine sent me a message pretending Okami 2 was announced for the Wii U.
Of course they only checked french websites which are well-known to be bullshi* if I may say and totally innacurate. So I've made more inquiries, searching everywhere and everything I could find.
I ended up with many english websites pretending that Hideki Kamiya said he was all for it, that he'd be happy to make an Okami 2 on the Wii U and ready for it if Capcom was to agree.
If you don't know who H.Kamiya is, he worked on the story of the original Okami and also directed it. However, he didn't take part in the Okamiden game which makes the previous affirmation unlikely( I mean, if he didn't take part in Okamiden it was just weird to see him on Okami2; it could be possible but pretty uncertain).
So again I took a look at the sources of the rumour.
Which is a tweet on H.Kamiya's twitter. He is not saying in any way that he's planning to work on it. In fact he's not sayin

Then it can get even more complicated when you have to remember the title for relatives like your uncle's son's wife's mother's brother!

Favourite Console of the GenerationHiya Ryceballs. You may have noticed recently I have been doing more videogame art lately despite how I said there would be more OC. There's a good reason for that, because I unexpectedly get to go to a video game convention this weekend to sell some art, so I decided to make more gaming related art to sell there. I am working on a Rycraft artwork as well so you can look forward to that! Anyways this got me thinking about games a lot, which console has what games that I liked, whether people know the games that I played? And which consoles I liked the most?? So I decided to split em into groups of generations. The Console Wars as they call it, has begun. Which was my favourite of the generation?

Tales of the missing Car Park TicketThis happened two days ago when I had to go to a shopping mall called Westfield. I was there to receive my copy of Zelda Skyward Sword as well as trading in the frustrating Goldeneye Reloaded for possibly Skyrim.Tales of the missing Car Park Ticket3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The story begins as I drove to Westfield, got into the car park, its one of those car parks that requires you to get a ticket and if you are only there for 3 hours or less you wouldn't need to pay anything, then they charge you per hour after etc etc. My mind was still deep in thoughts about my grandfather's death that happened a few days ago so I wasn't really paying attention to what's happening around me. So I got into the shopping mall, got Skyward Sword, got rid of the stupid annoying Goldeneye Reloaded and traded it in for Skyrim. I then walked around the mall a little bit, went into Toys R Us and wandered around like a pedophile, I even went into the girls section for a bit (What? I like Monster High, don't judge me.) I spent around half an hour in the mall pretty much,

Real TalkHey, guys. Due to some recent events that have occurred on a few different websites I daily go on, and real life situations, I've decided to make this journal. It's more of a serious one. It's been on my mind for a while to make this, and a few occurrences have finally crossed the line that have urged me to write this. So, here you go. I really do hope that if not all a majority of you take notice of this. With every scenario mentioned in the journal, I shall keep the person(s) involved classified, unless it's my own tales, then I'll censor out the people involved in my stories except for myself. For the sake of privacy, of course.Real Talk1 year ago in Personal More Like This
