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.

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 Review2 years ago in Personal More Like This

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
Nintendo 4DSForget the 2DS! This is better! The newly announced Nintendo 4DS. Good news from Nintendo just keeps on coming! So much Nintendo goodness! Wow, like just wow. Nintendo is on fire at the moment. A tech demo showed Pokemon Xandy being played on the 4DS, when you get hit by a Squirtle the 4DS squirts water at your face, when you get hit by a Charmander the 4DS burns your finger and when you get hit by a Pikachu the 4DS electric shock your fingers.

Wii U games Where U at?!The following is a rant about Nintendo and the videogame industry now days in general :'I Warning its a big wall of texts, Nintendo.. water u doing....Wii U games Where U at?!3 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
A little message concerning the Typhoon DisasterTyphoon Haiyan in the Philippines was a disaster. But we are very fortunate that countries all over the world have helped us with their generous aid and donations, we received so much help more than we expected. As a fellow citizen of my country I wish to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart your generosity.A little message concerning the Typhoon Disaster2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And now a word to the President of the Phillippines, the Mayor of Tacloban city and all the govt' officials handling the situation. You are all INCOMPETENT. For the past week you've barely done anything to help the victims, not even something as simple as delivering the relief goods. I even heard cases where you wanted to tax these relief goods. Bullshit. You are all an embarrassment to your people and your country. Shame on you. Go to Hell.
Are you the Main Character of your own Life?Thats a funny question to ask actually, "Are you the main character of your own life?" I can't really imagine anyone saying someone else is the main character in their own life, like 'Yeah my friend Bob, he is the main character, I am just a supporting role in his epic tale, pretty much if he dies I would also have to take my own life because his story has finished'. No. Im sure everyone consider themselves as the main character of their own lives, it's my story, my life, etc etc. I guess the real question is, how important is your story?Are you the Main Character of your own Life?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Eversince I was a small ugly child, I have considered myself to be the STAR of my own movie. "The Life of Ry" is the title of the film, without sounding too egotentacles, it just mean that I felt I was destined to do great things, this might have something to do with how I was brought up, I was very optimistic, I was quite spoiled even, I was always happy and laughing, it may have something to do with me being an only child and the fact that I
I will not be subjected to criminal abuseIts time for another story, do you guys want a story? I will give you one. This one is about my early days in the work industry and how you should always becareful and know your legal rights before you head in, you do not want to be subjected to criminal abuse without knowing. This happened a few years back, straight out of Design College, when I was still an 'Amateur Graphic Designer' as they like to call me. So I was searching online for jobs and found one that requires a Graphic Designer with artistic skills who can create original characters as well as making little icons and graphics stuff. I was like HELL YEAH THATS ME, so I sent them my portfolio, back then it had really unprofessional messy drawings and then a few graphic design works and photography bullshit pieces that I threw in here and there to show my 'range', I didn't have a consistant style and I had no idea what people wanted to see lol.

Anyway, Uncle Ry has an embarrassing story to share, since it was basically the start of my really cool badboy senpai image.
This was me as a kid:
As you can see, I still have that charming smile even now. Just look at dem eyes. I was definitely the senpai of all my girl classmates.
Ok guys, no need to stare for too long, I know I'm good looking but we gotta get to the point ok? :'I You know those kids in movies where some freak accident happens and they are always the hero? Yeah well I was that kid one time, and that was the start of my super cool badboy senpai career. I remember when I was 5 and about to start my first day at school in Grad

(You can read previous journal about it here http://ry-spirit.deviantart.com/journal/Going-to-Antarctica-for-AntarctiCon2013-362647923 ) Cold as hell but it was so fun seeing penguins and ice and snow and all that jazz. Even met some local fans there, OH and Val Kilmer my favourite actor! OMG, I got his autograph and took a photo with him and everything. The trip was just so fun! I am definately going back to Antarctica next year. But words are hard to describe what happened on my trip, so I might as well show photos instead ^^" Please excuse my self shot photos.. i had no one with me to hold the camera so the quality might not be good...Back from AntarctiCon (With PHOTOS!)3 years ago in Personal More Like This

ALWAYS SIGN YOUR WORK and other stuffHi folks. I was gonna make this journal sooner or later, but there's not a more appropriate time than NOW, when my 'Sorry we're closed' http://ry-spirit.deviantart.com/art/Sorry-we-re-CLOSED-162673296 artwork got posted on 9gag right http://m.9gag.com/gag/6281912 ! Not only did the person not credit the artist or link it to my page or whatever, they even changed the title of this artwork to 'S**t Happens'. Come on man... WHAT ALSO sucks is that back then I had a different logo, its like that box with a thunder symbol on it, it doesn't have my username on it either... so people could just look at that picture and have no idea who drew it. I mean this artwork is OLD.. like more than 2 years old.. so I was still new to how the internet works when it comes to sharing. So now this 9gag post gets like 16k of likes and over 500k of views and I don't get a single credit. *Flips a table*.

In my profession, I spend most of my time sitting and that cumulative time is bad for my health. In an effort to incorporate fitness into my life, I'm doing sketches while maintaining a 'wall squat'. #wallsquatart is what I am calling it and I hope others may find it as motivating as I do. I can only detail the drawing for as long as I can maintain the pose, and wanting to create a great drawing pushes me to draw through the burn. Though unusual, it's a small step that I've found very inspiring.
Will Clap at the End of Every Movie Till I DieI swear on my mum's life that from now on, no matter how good or bad the film is, I will clap when no one else does, I will clap when I am the only one in the cinema, I will clap even knowing my friends may want to end the friendship with me, I will clap at the end of every movie I watch till the day I die.Will Clap at the End of Every Movie Till I Die3 years ago in Personal More Like This
After an interesting talk with whitestarflower about her story when people clapped at the end of Harry Potter and how she will only clap when other people clap, I joked that I am gonna clap at the end of every movie till the day I die. But then I thought about this more.. you know what? Why NOT? Lets do this, it might be funny. And if things get too awkward I might just look around pretending it wasn't me who clapped or something. Do you remember this poll http://ry-spirit.deviantart.com/journal/poll/3008931/ ? Only 12% thinks that clapping is stupid, the other people either join

Did Cyrus and Skadi grow up reading fairy tales like we did? Well, they’ve discovered a few Grimm tales and want to export some of them to their home planet. Help them illustrate these tales for their people and work them into one! Do what you will with the fairytale – reverse it, twist it, flip it on its head. As long as our sibling mascots are involved (and that we can tell it’s a fairytale), let the magic come alive!
To be announced. Watch this space for wishing stars!
