Long Wars and Long Thoughts

Tags

, , , ,

Draco got into XCOM 2’s Long War 2 mod this past week( or two). It’s long but it’s not that long. Draco stalls a lot while playing XCOMs which makes it longer. Draco doesn’t plan on reviewing it because it’s a mod and also Draco is still stalling. Draco will however give his thoughts.

Draco was kind and explaned the joke in this caption but the tab closed without saving. Clearly the universe didn’t want you to get it. Take that up with your nearest Universal Representative.

They aren’t really long thoughts though; that’s just the title. They are average length thoughts. Let’s go!

Thought 1: Is it actually a mod? Long War was a mod but is the sequel one?  Like sure it’s a modification but usually when the creator of the game releases new anything it’s called a dlc. Because they’re being paid by the people making the game it’s more like an independent contractor making dlc than a fanwork. Like they could have conceivably charged everyone instead of making it a free mod and no one would really complain because it has more content than the other dlc they released for about $20. If you had a different chef make food at your resteraunt the customer wouldn’t say they got food from some random stranger; they’d say they ate at your resteraunt.  It’s not a big deal but it’s something Draco’s thought about a few times. Draco thought about other situations like this and Draco realized Draco has the opposite opinion in some cases( for example fan art being created by the series creator) so both sides are valid.

Thought 2: The thing Draco liked most about XCOM 2 aside from the “It’s XCOM” part was that they did away with the “buy individual guns for everyone” thing and that the psionic soldiers had lots of cool abilities. Long War 2 adds lots of things and takes both of those away. Luckily Draco sort of modded them back in. Here have the mods if you want.

Thought 3: XCOM 2 introduced the faceless. It’s a horrible gooey alien that can assume human form.They’re like a landmine for those trying to help people. Dispicable really. In Long War 2 they get their own little mission called Rendezvous. A Faceless has infiltrated the resistance and you have to go follow them, stop them, yadda yadda. Such scandal and intrigue await you, the first time at least. The 40th time, knowing that there will be the same number of enemies in essentially the same places, watching that 10 second animation of a person wriggling about and being like “Whoa guys check it out I’m not actually a person!”. Ultimately the thing with Long War in general is it isn’t necessarily long; it’s just repetitive.

Thought 4: The actual dlc missions aren’t starting and it makes Draco a bit sad. Draco finished before those came out and Draco wanted to see what they were. Draco did get the robofriend and the crossbow gun. Give Draco snakes.

Update: Draco found out how to use the dev console and make it happen but that’s sorta worse than no snakes at all. You shouldn’t have to force snakes. Also it reminded Draco of the cli and Draco hates that sort of thing. It reminds Draco of DOS and DOS is rightfully dead. Ew.

Update: The snake was fun.

Harry Potter and the Posturing Pieces of Pathetic Trash

Tags

Image result for harry potter gifs

It should be noted Draco wrote this post a week or two ago so this isn’t about the Piers Morgan acting like a sniveling child about Harry Potter thing.  For now we’ll avoid such topics and keep our titles friendly. Plus Draco essentially summed up his opinion on that here so you know…

So the other day someone was all mad that people reference Harry Potter in conversation. That was followed up by a statement that adults aren’t reading adult books anymore. Draco was pretty annoyed. Admittedly Draco was pretty annoyed both before and after reading that but this annoyance is at least blagable.

woopwoop

Does that remind anyone else of those products that are like “This is for men only”. If you need to drink a specific brand of soda or use a special razor to prove you’re a man or you need to read some magical adult books to try and prove you’re an adult you most certainly are not remotely close to either.

Coolglasses

First of all an “adult” book is a pornographic one. That’s obviously not the point but if you’re going to whine about how people choose to communicate it’s totally fair for Draco to rip apart your word choice. The odds that such books are popular enough to use as a reference that is expected to be understood by others are fairly low. Even if one such book stood above the rest would people really want to talk about it in a public space? Ya no.

Image result for we're done gif

Anyway a real adult book is a book that an adult reads. If you can’t stand that new books are being referenced more than what you consider a classic well you’re on the same train as people who will defend “whom” to the death. First station is right out the door. People use popular literature to better communicate their ideas using a common understanding. If people are communicating effectively and understanding one another that’s something everyone should be happy about. It’s not as if YA Novels are those cardboard 6 page long picture books with occasional finger puppet integration. Even if a person did reference such a picture book if it helps contextualize an idea or solve a problem it’s a benefit to society.

Image result for angry cup stacking gif

There was also something about if you compare the real world to the fictional world you won’t be able to distinguish what’s real which is a fairly common argument for someone whining about people referencing the same thing over and over again. You’d think someone complaining about repetitive comparisons would be more original. Ultimately most people who read fiction won’t just assume they’re a wizard  but plenty of people will dream about ways to solve problems and make our lives a little more magical. It’s also not true that novels that hypothetically fall under the blanket of “books for adults”( Because remember the term Adult Book represents a generally unrealistic genre) are devoid of the supernatural. Books that do not include any fictional elements are known as nonfiction. They make nonfiction books for all ages.

Image result for we're done gif

Oh there was one more point. Draco tried to find the tweet again later but found an article that said essentially the same thing. They made the point that adults should read every book since the creation of books in order as it was supposedly intended. This would be considered a not completely idiotic point if everyone caught vampirism. As vampires are fictional creatures and we can’t catch their affliction the point is very stupid. Every book is not part of some bloated conjoined series and if you see a book it’s probably safe to read it. Also many books are written in dead languages. How are you supposed to make that work? We can’t all be the Pope. Many books are written in a wide variety of languages. Do we have to read re-releases and translations too? Anyway this idea is impractical and ridiculous. Draco doubts the people saying all this nonsense have ever read a book.

Vlogblogs and Re:release- Scamming Students With Another Chapter

Tags

, , ,

Draco’s been watching many vlogs lately. The people who make these vlogs also have blogs. We may not even be fully through the first note yet but on a side not this post already has a rhyme so you know it’ll be good. So Draco checked out the vloggers blogs and what Draco discovered was shocking.

Image result for thunderbolt anime gif

Then after being electrocuted Draco noticed that the blogs and vlogs were exactly the same. The blog was just them reading their blog post. Maybe the blog was just a transcript of what they said in the vlog. Who knows… Does all of that make sense though? Does the voice alone justify the double post? It’s nice to give people options probably. Draco just feels like if you do the same thing you should enhance the experience. Audio book people do voices sometimes. Ultimately it’s fine but it just seemed a bit weird. Maybe if you’re doing both it saves time but you would think that’s just extra work. Like if Draco recorded a vlog of this post it would probably be out even later than usual.

sadjunko

On a similar topic, it always bugged Draco when textbook authors and sometimes other authors would rerelease their  books with a new chapter, and then do the same thing again with another chapter, and another chapter. Essentially just rereleasing the same book they wrote years ago with stuff they didn’t feel was important enough to include the first time. Movies do this too yet Draco never seems to care for some reason. Maybe it’s because it’s generally 5 seconds long but that doesn’t make any sense because that’s an even worse deal. The real answer is probably that Draco has never really been forced to buy a movie.Still if they filmed or wrote something so great they felt the need to make extra copies and have an entire extra release maybe they could have save all that extra money doing it right the first time. That’s probably not a great suggestion since the obvious real point is to just get more money out of people but ya know.

money

When you think about all that the double posted blogs are completely fine since they weren’t charging anyone anything but if they did charge it would be inexcusable. Draco has only seen one person even try to charge for their posts and they were at least mildly famous and respected (Though the topic of their post was even more pedantic than even some of Draco’s posts) so a combination of charging and reading out blogposts probably won’t ever happen.

Grand virere

So all and all this is how you stretch a weird thing you noticed into over four hundred words. Victory achieved.

Magical Diary Review

Tags

, , , ,

agical-diary-header

Draco did it! Woop. That review of Magical Diary that Draco kept putting off because he hadn’t played it recently? Well it’s been recently’d. Recently as in like a few days ago.  Actually it’s been like a week or two now. Draco had to wait till that emptiness you get from finishing a good game or reading a good book went away. Judging by the tears welling up and Draco’s decision to go put music on rather than finish the paragraph it has not. Oh well it’s time to stop putting it off and finish what was meant for an October Sky right this minute!!!!!!! Well to be more accurate the minute that Draco finishes. Draco will of course be finished by the time you read that though so the situation is essentially this. For you the minute will be the past but for Draco it’ll be the future. That’s super interesting. Some would even call it “Magical”

First off it’s press release time!

You have been invited to attend a magical school. Here you can make new friends, learn dozens of spells, face exams in the school dungeons, run for class office, and try to find a date for the May Day Ball.
But be careful! You might end up in detention, be lured into a secret society, be forced to marry your professor, or even be expelled!

Every puzzle has multiple solutions, and the path you choose is up to you. Are you a good witch or a bad witch?

Is that the best press release Draco has read? Well technically it isn’t one. It’s just the description. Draco typed in “Magical Diary Press Release” and got this. It was written in 2011 so you know. Anyway, It’s a Stat Management Visual Novel with some old school Dungeon elements. There are many endings, 5 or 6 characters that are snuggle-up-to-able, and way more spells then you’ll ever need. Oh and it was made by Hanako Games!

Story Characters

To start you create your perfect witchsona. When Draco first played Draco went as Draco but there was a bug which reset all the customization if you tried to change the last name so Draco was stuck with the default. This time around with Mallory that bug has been fixed. Isn’t that impressive? After that you get to the visual novel section and learn that you are about to attend a magical school of magic.Upon arriving you meet colorful characters like

grabby

…Professor Grabiner aka Grabby, who is Snape but less of a douche. That’s probably because unless you make choices that intentionally make you worthy of scolding he’ll not have a personal vendetta against you.

ellen

… Ellen, a techno-Hermione with less badassness and more sadness! She’s also your roommate.

virginia

…Virginia the sports witch. Another roommate. She might be the Ron of this game but you’d never notice because she isn’t your personal butt monkey. She does however share the love of sweets, the pureblooded-ness, and the large family.

donald

…Donald the guy who feels like he needs … He’s basically early Naruto. He’s also Virginia’s brother. Everyone’s mean to him and no one trusts him because he’s only cause trouble but in reality he’s super nice and helpful. He’s stuck in his sibling’s shadow as opposed to being a ninja with a demon in his belly so it’s not 100%. A good bro to brotally bro with. But speaking of demons…

damien

… Damien. He’s a demon. Sure there are probably some demons that aren’t the worst scum of the earth ever, but most of the time, especially this time, definitely the worst. Lucky for both Draco and Mallory the choices we made essentially make him never show up. If you like people who are the worst though well Damien is your don’t please he just sucks. Scumbag. Avoid at all costs. Draco suspects that he never gets inside of Donald’s belly but Draco isn’t a lore expert.

steve

… Big Steve. He’s a fairly rare character, Draco’s first playthrough Draco only heard tell of his status as Big Steve. This time around he was there. The legend is real. He’s not particularly large looking but he is very much Steve looking. In a line-up of 10 people you’d be able to point to him and say that one is Steve for sure.

Image result for magical diary Pastel

…Pastel. She’s a fairyly cool gal. The first time she was just kinda there but Mallory learn a “lot” more about her wink wink. Sadly Mallory rejected her. 😦 Also Draco just included the full sprite from the wiki since you’ve gotta see her with her full wingspan to truely appreciate that she has a wingspan.

william

…William. Virginia’s older brother who everyone loves. He’s so cool he couldn’t be bothered to show up very much after the first exam. Essentially Percy but cool and friendly.

potsdam

…  Professor Potsdam. Dumbledore but a lady. Sunshine and rainbows.  Monomi from Danganronpa except with some sense of authority.

minnie

Minnie was bae

and many more who either don’ t show up much and don’t have a romance route associated with them. For example Minnie the class president shows up more than Big Steve and Pastel combined but it’s mostly just helping you study and her dealing with her own story.

fluffy-tail

Fluffy tail boy did not make much impact but atleast he eventually defeated Naraku. Sure Inuyasha didn’t have a tail but there is a resembellance.

Gameplay 

Image result for magical diary

In Magical Diary you schedule your week and watch it run. You can choose a class in Blue magic( altering stuff (Like teleportation and painting the ceiling. )), Red Magic( Fireballs and gentle breezes), Green Magic( Healing and smelling stuff really well( really well)), Black Magic( everything from Fullmetal Alchemist and also enchantment), and White Magic( ESP and Ghosties). Depending on your luck you will get 1, 2, or the magical 3 points in the corresponding magic stat.  You could also take Gym to raise your health! Study alone to raise your stress(smarts( mana( magicky power)))! You can sleep ALL DAY! And then on the weekend you can go to the mall or study with Minnie if she bothers to show up. Through these tasks and occasional choices you raise your stats and then get to test your skills in the DUNGEONS!!!!!!!!!

dungeons

Yes it does! Is that weird? Yes it is!

dungeon-mode

 

Each Dungeon has puzzle(s) and you must solve them using your wits or better yet magical spells.

sink

The answer was to make a sink all along.

Apparently some people have done no magic runs but apparently the requires going near Damien and honestly it’s a game about a magic school so learn all the cool spells like “Empathy”, “Sleep”, and “Sticky Feet”.

Other Stuff

Magical Diary is fairly old but there still isn’t anything that offers the same experience and surpasses it. The appearance can be a bit jarring and the title screen is the cheesiest cheese this side of Cheese Town but if you can get past the fact that Draco just wrote the words “Cheese Town” you can get past that. The magic system is both fun and far more in-depth than it even needed to be. Putting the spells on cards gave it a sort of tcg aspect to it. It’s all predetermined though; it’s not like you can go to one class and suddenly you can make yourself invisible and call down meteors. Sometimes you get nothing. generally it’s every 5 points and you can get a maximum of 3 per class. The best part is that when multiple magic colors get to certain points and you’ll get a bonus cross magic spell of amazingness. One super cool sounding combo spell lets you do that thing from Fate/Zero that spawned all those Kentucky Fried Chicken memes while another lets you glue someone’s shoes to the ground.

Such an arcane stratagem

Aside from the magic the story is magical in itself. Some people say it’s just Harry Potter but unlike Harry Potter this author actually writes an American Magic School set in America rather than an English Magic School wearing the skin of an American one. They also cover important and modern issues without flopping out on them in the last 15 pages or so. Harry Potter is great though soz. Oh and there isn’t really an evil antagonistic snake man of evil to stand in your way towards world dominat- learning. It’s all fun learning and some friendship and/or romance unless you talk to Damien too much which you should never ever do. If you see a Damien remember to respond properly.

Anyway Draco was scrolling through the devs twitter after finding out the dev had a twitter and at one point their computer with all the work they had done on the next Magical Diary game on it broke down. Thankfully they were able to save the tiny unfinished scrap . That might mean that in like 5 or 10 years they may release the next one. Draco looks forward to it.

Rogue One Sorta Review with Sorta Spoilers Sorta

Tags

, , , ,

So this is sort of tacked on since it just happened but Draco wishes the best for Carrie Fisher who at the moment seems to have stabilized from a heart attack. Hopefully she stays well.

leia

Draco saw Rogue One the day before yesterday. Draco wrote this post yesterday. Spoilers and all but ya it was good. It was definitely better than the prequels but it certainly wasn’t the best one ever as some people have stated. It looked really good and there was plenty of action candy.  Maybe it would have been better as a Neflix original series. The environments were definitely the best they’ve ever done. There was one scene  near the beginning in a crowded city road and the crowds were absolutely gorgeous. It felt really really real. You could see a Stormtrooper helmet bobbing through the crowd and it just pulled the whole scene together. There was a few problems and by that Draco means essentially three problems that ultimately matter. The dialogue at times was a little meh. There was a super obnoxious cameo at one point where it just felt like they were screaming “HEY! IT”S STAR WARS!!!!!!!”. Most of the cameos were great but this one was just bad. you’ll know the one if you watch it. as for the third problem, Draco can’t remember anyone’s name. Jyn doesn’t count  because Draco remembers her name from before watching the movie. Everyone else was really great and recognizable. They were pretty great companions( some better or worse than others). With Force Awakens everyone knew the names of all the main characters, ESPECIALLY BB-8. The imperial droid guy was probably one of the best droids Star Wars has done in any of the canon stuff and Draco doesn’t know their name. That’s probably a Draco problem more than anything but still they definitely didn’t hit the brand recognition market well this time around.

rogue-one-set-shot-720x720-720x720

Oh ya and this isn’t really a problem but wasn’t the plot pretty standard movie plot and also had some Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s funny how Draco is using that in a slightly negative sense when that was the entire dream that the creators of Suicide Squad had. Like if Draco were talking about them and said they reminded Draco of Guardians they’d probably shed tears of joy. Anyway it also had the feel of really well written fan fiction. You know where the characters are there and they’re doing stuff but only things the canon characters do actually has any effect whatsoever. Actually that’s also good historical fiction. In a way this is historical fiction for a fictional world.  Was it good? Overall really good. It was fun. The last scene would have been worth the ticket price alone. but did it matter in the grand scheme of the plot? No. Though to be fair they had no room to maneuver. A cameo from this film in ep 8 would have just been pretty stupid. They wrapped things up and provided and experience that was a worthwhile way of spending however long it is. Also thing CG stuff was barely noticeable. Draco probably would have just assumed they reused footage or something if Draco hadn’t been told ahead of time.

So realistic. 

The Eleventh Day of Dracocember and Mallory’s Birthday

mallory2crop

So December 11th is the day Draco picked to be Mallory’s birthday.  Just a fyi, Draco has done more than a week of Mallory related drawings. Her birthday being this month was most of Draco’s motivation. You can catch the action as it happens on Draco’s twitter which you can find at the bottom of the site. Last month Draco wrote the beginnings of a rough draft of a novel centered around Mallory. Mallory has been sleeping for Draco essentially. It has been a very Mallory time of year. Draco should really be working on day 12 right now and the rest of the month after that. Now it’s time to post all the Mallory’s Draco can find except for the one Draco accidentally did a few months ago which will be saved for Easter.

black-and-white-mallory

A cute black and white Mallory!

Crying chibi Mallory.

Angry chibi Mallory.

Mallory 002

Look at This cute early version of Mallory. ❤

She didn’t even have her eye triangle makeup thingies at this point. Mr. Spikey hasn’t changed at all though.

witch-31

Mallory in a witch costume. Mr Spikey in a broom costume.

This was from Witchtober. Good times.

mallory-day-1

A cool outfit probably for being stealthy.

mallory-day-2

This was supposed to be Mallory in her underwear and technically she is in them. Technically every picture of her so far she’s been in them…

mallory-day-3

Mallory checking herself out in a reflective surface.

mallory-day-4

Mallory’s room with her sleeping in it. Mallory has great taste in posters. Those pillows are pretty nice too. The carpet is kinda ugly though.

mallory-day-5-2

Mallory waking up from sleeping for a full day.

mallory-day-6

Mallory, Katie, and Mr. Spikey crossplaying as Genos, Saitama, and Tornado from One Punch Man! Mr. Spikey’s costume had to be taped on.

mallory-day-7-2

Mallory trying to do one of those late for school toast running scenes even though she graduated already and also was home schooled sort of. Also it was decided the toast is named Toast-Facé, Esq.

mallory-day-8-1

Mallory was asked this question and she responded with “Trick question. Only the one on the right isn’t human.”

mallory-day-9

Mallory doesn’t like spiders webbing up her hallways. Once again though if it’s relatively the size of a person Mallory probably won’t notice anything else. She might need glasses. If you look back at the early cute version she doesn’t have pupils so having bad eyesight would make sense.

mallory-day-10

Tried it.

mallory-day-11

And the birthday pic guest starring Thérèse awkwardly staring.

You have now seen all the Mallory’s from the past slightly more than a week. Draco must now draw more Mallory’s. Also Draco filled out on of those character sheets on Deviantart and a stats page also from … Deviantart too maybe? Draco’ll try to make a page with it and also do the rest of Draco’s characters eventually.

Anyway happy birthday Mallory! Have a wonderful Dracocember and a merry Mallorymas!

Character Choices and Draco Demands Many Cyndaquil!

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

 

ava_fail

Draco has been working on his novel. It’s turning out fairly well. A part of Draco wants to take it into a game(a la visual novel or rpg( Kind of like those Lonely Wolf Treat games Draco always recommends to you.)) but for now it’s about getting the story out. Also That’s like twice the typing when Draco isn’t even half way to the middle. It’s not that Draco isn’t writing much, it’s that Draco like to let characters do essentially whatever they want. Draco rewatched the first episode of Inuyasha the other day and the sequence of events pretty much describe exactly what Draco means. So Kagome gets attacked by a demon, dragged through time, and finds a guy pinned to a tree with an arrow. She notices the guy has cute doggy ears and instead of doing what you’d expect and helping the guy even slightly or just assuming he’s dead and worrying that the space that was once her back yard was now a forest she decides “Hey! I want to touch those ears.”. It would have been a whole lot easier to have her go “Oh no! This Strange Dog Boy needs my help” and have her accidentally free the initially angry half-demon but nope. So Draco went on a herding cat trial. It takes longer when one character decides they have to go backwards because they want that one thing or instead of finishing an objective they get a new one but oh well. It’ll get there.  Especially once more characters join the group.

katrina

^She’s our only hope.

Anyway now that December is almost over Draco needs to find a December challenge.  Well technically Draco could just do whatever. Finishing( AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA) November’s could be a thing but a drawing one would be preferable. Draco can hardly listen to any of the music he has while writing because either lyrics, catchiness, or violently different mood. It’s hard to write some characters when the music playing is their antithesis. While drawing though it doesn’t really matter as much. The catchiness thing still applies but few songs are that catchy. Draco did  find one or two good ones but one was marked as an October only challenge and the other was a thematic type of thing where you can write, draw, or do whatever the hell you want. Draco will probably just rebel against the October label and maybe apply the rest after. Other things Draco has to do include that Magical Diary( Which include replaying it because who can be bothered to remember stuff, right?) review, editing and recording stuffs, and catching a Cyndaquil.

cyndaquil

Draco’s first Pokemon, Draco’s favorite Pokemon.

Draco bought Pokemon Moon strictly because in the promotional stuff they said you can get a Cyndaquil. Draco thought it would be like Pokemon X & Y where they were so drunk on Mega-Evolution that they threw the original starters in your faces. “We didn’t come out with iconic enough starters this time around so if we want Mega-Evolution to succeed we better roll out the Charizard.”  was probably what they were thinking. X & Y definitely weren’t the best Pokemon games. Mostly the professor was creepy. Anyway it’s amazing how they added dialog choices, pokedex entries that suggest an actual ecosystem, and an entire year( an 11-year-old instead of the usual 10)!  Also they did that whole island atmosphere so well that Draco has spent more money on drinks than pokeballs. Clothing is pretty cool too btw. Draco bought sunglasses that according to Draco’s poor conversion rate memory would cost about $550-610 USD. That’s a stupid purchase and it’s pretty cool they got Draco to pull the trigger.

Coolglasses

In all the other games Draco ended up rich but here that seems unlikely and Draco is only about half way through. That’s the problem though. Draco now knows that you can only get Cyndaquil by scanning a group of 10 QR codes every 20 hours or so on the first island assuming you don’t get a different Pokemon. They offer all of the gen 2 starters and some other ones( supposedly it’s a group of twelve) but Draco’s been aiming for Cyndaquil since preording. Draco’s team composition is Cyndaquil based.  If Draco had learned how to get Cyndaquil before getting to the second island Draco wouldn’t have gone to the second island. It probably would have ruined the entire experience. At this point Draco refuses to go to the third and it’s been several days. Draco really likes where the story is going but if Draco waits till the end to get a Cyndaquil it will just be a disappointment. Probably! Draco assumes it will be because everything after Crystal has been but maybe this will be different. Draco remains safely skeptical so Draco shall keep trying but the random nature is slightly disappointing. Draco did order a plush Cyndaquil off Amazon though so don’t worry no one needs to die yet. It is based on Hawaii though and Hawaii has volcanoes. kicking someone into one to jump-start the Cyndaquil process would be a nice option. Admittedly Draco would feel to guilty to do anything at that point but haha murder humor. Oh that reminds Draco of another thing! So now wild Pokemon can call for help. Sometimes the help doesn’t come. This makes Draco pretty sad most of the time; the poor Pokemon need help, they call to their friends, and the friend is like nope. Draco usually lets them go. Draco would appreciate if one of them had a Cyndaquil friend and maybe for taking it easy on them they could say “hey go be caught by that guy” or if RNGesus could help Draco out here and drop a box of them in Draco’s lap.

Draco Shows Off Stuff Again and Box Box

Tags

, , , , ,

poke

Draco has a few ideas but Draco still has one of those “look at all this cool stuff” posts on the burner so that needs to be removed from the burner and served. Draco doesn’t remember enough of those running a restaurant reality shows to continue this metaphor. Stuff! Specifically birthday stuff.

box-2

Everyone place your bets on what is in the box. You will probably never guess correctly but it’s important to keep the hope that lives in your heart alive! Guess with your full conviction!

box-3

It was another box. A box inside a box. Let’s skip the obvious reference to the popular 2010 sci-fi movie, Tron: Legacy.

frisby-golf

Frisbee Golf The Movie

So now what was in the box’s box?

myrtenaster

It’s Myrtenaster from RWBY! Essentially a revolver rapier.  It’s heavier than you’d expect. The fins are probably sharper than the tip. It still stabbed the box pretty well. If Draco must ever fight cardboard warriors, Myrtenaster will be perfectly fine. Draco looks forward to finding a way to display it somehow.

Just one question.

button

WHAT IS THIS BUTTON FOR?

It seems to serve literally no purpose whatsoever. Draco has pressed this button many times. Maybe every time Draco presses it a random person dies. Maybe an angel gets its brand new 2016 wings by Chevrolet. Maybe it forces you to hit like and subscribe hashtag winky face. Who knows?

We also have this beautiful RWBY MUG!

mug

It’s great, Draco really appreciates it, but There is a problem. To understand the problem you’d either have to watch the Rooster Teeth podcast or watch this much shorter animated short.

Now guess what Draco saw on the bottom of the mug? A sticker! Admittedly it’s just a little “China” sticker to say hey this is made in China but still. That’s like Oreo saying you’re not allowed to have milk with their cookies. Communication is key. If you’re going to say no to mug stickers make sure your company doesn’t put stickers on mugs.

china

Other than that Draco just got a few of them ol’ Funko Pops and a cellular telephone which Draco hasn’t really used much because it’s scary.

pop2phone2

Anyway, here’s a question for you. With the advent of unboxing videos and reaction videos, do you ever feel like when you open or react to something without filming it that you rob yourself of content? It sours the experience a bit.

 

Witchapalooza: Witch Post Extravaganza!

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

So apparently “Witchapalooza” may be a thing already for some restaurants. Witches Night can’t be used either because that’s April 30th apparently. Draco decided to use a colon and the word extravaganza instead.  Originally this was going to be a week-long extravaganza of witches but several things got in the way.

  1. Draco had a day trip the other day. Draco got some good pictures and discovered that McDonald’s Eggs are halfway decent in the sense that half the egg was decent while the other half was disgusting. Draco threw most of that half out.
  2. Draco struggled to come up with seven ideas. Draco will go over the remaining ideas but one of the better ones was quickly murdered. The idea was to talk about the origin of the typical witch design we see today. The very day Draco came up with the idea Draco went on YouTube, checked his subbox, and found this.

Like it doesn’t go over every little detail but it’s essentially the entire idea.

3. Halloween was on a Monday. That means the week of would have started on a Tuesday. That’s weird.

4. Draco was busy doodling nonsense.

So anyway let’s settle this here and now. First off Draco shall post the 31 witches Draco did for Inktober and Witchtober. Draco never missed a day by the way. if you follow Draco on Twitter you’ve already seen these but some people haven’t so boo.

Draco wouldn’t just make a post to repost all of Draco’s posts though probably! You probably missed the witches that fell between the floorboards.

So that’s about it on witches Drawn by Draco. While doing Book Witch’s little magical circle Draco looking for magic related stuff. Mostly Draco was trying to find a summary of sigils (Where you deconstruct the letters of a sentence and shove the little lines together essentially) so Draco could do some of that and make the circle really magic looking but it ended up being way too much. On the bright side Draco did find this cool witch on YouTube called Taty the Mighty . Not only is she a witch, she has great taste in anime, that url says tatyology à la tautology which is hilarious, she’s a big fan of boobs, Draco meant to type “books” but it isn’t a lie so Draco isn’t hitting backspace, and she has DID so that’s like 30 times the fun. #Variety #TheyreAllGreatFYI #ChickenForGarnet #WhenYouStartAListButYouOnlyHaveOneListPoint #FreudianTypo #Hashtag

As for other topics to cover, Little Witch Academia already got its review and Magical Diary will get a review some other day. We only have three more hours till the Witching Hour so it’s probably best to hit publish sooner rather than later.

Happy Halloween Everyone!shinychariot

Third Anniversaries and Stuff

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

It’s Dracoblag’s third anniversary today! That means that Draco started Dracoblag THREE years ago. That’s equal to one year of time painted red. The third anniversary is the crystal/ glass anniversary. Does that mean anything here? Not really. There are lots of crystal things in final fantasy if you’re into that sort of thing.

Pylons in Starcraft are essentially giant crystals.

Rin Tohsaka from Fate/ Stay Night used some crystal magic.

Draco when he was younger was into an anime called Glass Fleet.It got Draco into the concepts of Space Operas and french nobility sounding names. It was also probably the first show Draco watched where the villain was really cool but also totally irredeemable( an absolutely abhorrent inhuman being) while the mains were relatively unimpressive aside from their outfits( all of them were really cool). It was essentially a soap opera so it wasn’t reviewed all that positively in the annals of history but oh well.

Epaulettes just look good  

If Draco remembers correctly when Draco took that quiz in Infamous Second Son Paper Trail (not really)viral marketing quiz it said Draco would have glass manipulation powers. Too bad that power was scrapped in-game. 😦

When Draco was little Draco loved the sound of glass breaking.

Glass armor in Skyrim and other elder scrolls games( which Draco didn’t play that much of) were generally the best looking.

Why is there gold? Because cool. Because cool.

That’s probably about it. Happy Anniversary Dracoblag!
