Splatoon (and me): One Year Later

Sat May 28, 2016, 6:45 PM

Disclaimer: Yes, I am aware that some of the content of my page is not suitable to all people. No, I'm not going to take it down, since I like it how it is. Also, since my resources will be at times limited, I will tend to update randomly.



Splatoon still going strong (though not as prevalently as before)

Well, it's been over a year since I last posted a journal. Was I lazy? Hardly. More on that later.

Right now, I want to talk about Splatoon on the night of its one-year anniversary. It's still a fun game (despite the general salt going around), and I'm almost at level 50. I'd be there already except I don't do Ranked that much and I've cut down on the time I spend weekly on it. That said, I've noticed that despite the game having a loyal fanbase and everything, NoA and maybe NoE/Australia hasn't done much else to promote its competitive aspect as NoJ did with their Koshien tournies and other media phenomena (Squid Sisters concert, anyone?). Honestly, I wish those branches did so that we'd have a presence competing with fellow Japanese players and not get consistently bested by them in special events--the last Splatfest's Top 100s being one such example. True, we do have fan-based tourneys and conventions, but the Big N has yet to give their seal of approval for something more official like they did for Melee and Smash U in the latest CEO Gaming event. Maybe someday the Treehouse can sponsor a regional invitational for everyone in the West (like the Splatoon Koshien was for Japan). Gotta keep people interested in fighting for Ninty's respect, after all!

As an aside, who else thinks Nintendo is going to make the NX a dedicated gaming laptop with full-body-screen gamepads?

What about me?

Last October, I finally got a job! Obviously I won't give exact details, but it does play to all the graphic design skills I learned in college while helping me learn other work necessities like customer service and management. The workplace is convenient as well--there's a Starbucks nearby along with some local restaurants, not to mention a donut shop opening in the summer! That pretty much means I'm set for life (or at least the next few years of it). Good thing too, as business is picking up rather sharply in only half a year.

Of course, all the above means that I haven't had as much time to draw as I used to, though I did get a Cintiq to help out with the times I do draw. Still, nothing to worry about--I'm sketching up my latest BI piece and will post it up as soon as I finish it!

Looking forward to the day I post another new journal!

I'd like to thank the following people for making this journal skin possible: ginkgografix, miontre and SimplySilent for providing some great tutorials and resources, thespook for providing some useful code snippets to work from (as you did for ginkgografix), AskGooroo for showing me the basic workflow of the CSS needed, Chris Coyier from CSS Tricks for posting an article that helped me get the mood-list to stick to the right, the devs behind ColorZilla for creating the Ultimate CSS Gradient Generator (which I used to make the background), and Juan Pablo del Peral of Huerta Tipográfica for creating the fonts Alegreya and Alegreya Sans, which this journal uses. I would also like to thank my watchers as well as fellow inflation artists for inspiring me to keep drawing! You guys really deserve as much credit as the others!
