I guess that is my cue to officially leave GS

I go to GS to check something, and what do I see? Horribly looking dumbed down new look... they changed it too much, and it seems unorganized to me. In short, I hate it lol. So I guess this is my last blog post. Probably last one there's ever going to be, so if you want to stay in touch, please add me on steam: I also have Desura, but I don't remember if that thing even supports friends haha. If you want to add me on FB the name to search for is: Jill Rowcester. Hmm, are there any other now? *ponder* Well, if you play GW2, then you know my username: Kuroi Ninja. KuroiNinja for PSN if you wanna add me there. Can't think of anything else I use, but send me a pm if there's anything you are wondering if I have :)

Edit: There's also Origin xD I'm BFKitten on there, so go ahead and add me if you want :)

I guess that's it then.

Thank you for everything, GS. If it wasn't for you, I would never have met my husband and all my wonderful friends.This is what kept me from never really leaving GS, but sadly it seems this is no longer the site it once was. I will probably check pm's every once in a while, but don't hold your breath. Best way to reach me is through steam.

Play Guild Wars 2 for free

Just thought I'd share this with anyone who would want to try out Guild Wars 2. Free to play from August 23-25, 2013 :)

If you do try it and want to play with me, add Kuroi Ninja :)

Oh, and yes, I am still alive haha.

I am alive!

I am alive!! :) What? Nono, I'm not talking about the game...

Just thought I'd stop by to say "hey, everyone!", so uh, hey everyone! :P

Hope everyone is doing good :) I've been busy as always... too much school and stuff going on.

Been playing a lot of Guild Wars 2 and Battlefield 3 lately, when I've had the time. I got a new laptop which made BF3 so much more fun to play, because it doesn't lag anymore at all :D On my old laptop, it would start lagging after 10 min and I would have 5-10fps -.-

Anyway, probably will continue to not be on much. I have one exam left, which is on monday, then I'm leaving to the US for Christmas and New Year.

So yeah, just wanted to let you know I'm alive and well :P

See you around!

Oh, thanks, GS... -.-

Here I came to GS to say hi and check out the music I used in one of my videos, and then I see that all my freaking videos are gone... I had videos here that I no longer have copies of on my computers or hard disks... thanks, GS :evil:

Oh, and I leveled up. Yeah... that doesn't really make up for the videos... I don't know what Jaquio is anyway...

Anyway, I'm in a bit of a bad mood now because of this, and don't really feel like blogging, but just thought I'd say hi and let everyone know I'm doing ok.

I'll try to stop by more often, but I'm going to be really busy with school this semester, so I can't really promise anything :/ I'm sure most people have forgotten about me anyway :P

Hope everyone else is doing well!

E3 2012 & SC Blacklist

E3 is over for this year, and they showed quite a few games I'm looking forward to, like Watch Dogs, RE6 and The Last of Us to name a few. One game I was not that happy about though, was Splinter Cell Blacklist :( Michael Ironside, the man who made Sam Fisher who he is, is no longer voicing Sam Fisher. I could have lived with the game being a lot like Conviction, but no Ironside is a huge downside for me, and I will not get the game at launch like I was planning on back when, not long after Conviction was released, I read the next SC was going to be released for PS3 :( But being a Splinter Cell fan, I will probably get it when it gets cheap... *sigh*

Other than that, I don't really have much to say. Oh yeah, I got some emblems for watching E3... wooooo.... what's the use? :| Emblems aren't as much fun as they used to be, thanks to the new look of GS and Fuse. Either way, it looks like I got them all according to the E3 2012 Esteemed Scholaremblem which says "Oh, is that a E3 2012 emblem you have there? Oh, that's cute. Which one is it? Oh yeah? How lovely. Oh, which ones do I have? Well, funny you should ask. ALL OF THEM. I have ALL OF THE EMBLEMS." I thought it was a little funny, and I wish they would put the emblems back on GS... not GS Fuse!, but GS, so I could show it off :P Oh well, doesn't matter.

So yeah, that's all for now I guess. Now I'm going back to playing Uncharted on my Vita. One more trophy left until platinum :D

Visiting my fiance || Got a PS Vita || PS Vita vs 3DS: My opinion

Visiting my fiance

As most of you probably already know, I got to the US last Monday to visit my fiance who lives in Oklahoma. I've been having a great time so far, and I know it's just going to get better and better :D We haven't really done much yet, so there isn't really much to say, but we're planning to go to Texas to visit family for a weekend. We're probably also going to go out and take pictures, as we both love taking pictures. If you're interested, here are some of the pictures we've taken: Our pictures on Panoramio.

Got a PS Vita

Got a Playstation Vita last week, and I've been having so much fun playing it. I finished Uncharted: Golden Abyss a couple of days ago and i'm going for platinum. I really love this handheld :D Also, been playing some WipEout 2048, Mortal Kombat, Super Stardust Delta, Escape Plan and MotorStorm RC, in addition to some of my PSP games from PSN; Super Stardust Portable, Splinter Cell Essentials (got it off PSN just for my Vita, since I have no way to get my UMD on the Vita :P) and Patapon 2. Super Stardust Portable is so much easier to play on the Vita, compared to the PSP.

PS Vita vs 3DS: My opinion

As much as I love my 3DS, I have to say the Vita is far more awesome. The only reason I love my 3DS, is Zelda: Ocarina of Time and the 3D is of course still pretty awesome, but I'd still go with the Vita over the 3DS any time. The Vita doesn't have a lot of games yet, but I love the few games I have for it right now. I love Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Mortal Kombat is a lot of fun, and of course WipEout 2048 and Super Stardust Delta are really awesome as well! I'm also really looking forward to Gravity Rush and Resistance Burning Skies.

So what exactly makes me like the Vita more than the 3DS?

Well, first of all, the 3DS doesn't really have a lot of games that appeal to me. Yeah, it has Zelda, but that's pretty much the only thing I love about it. Of course, I love Splinter Cell 3D and MGS3D, but I get those games on PS3 anyway, although not in 3D (unless you have a 3D enabled TV, that is). I also love playing Pokemon once in a while, but that doesn't really count as they are DS titles and I could just as well have owned a DS to play them.

Second, while the Vita has two analog sticks, you have to buy the second analog stick for the 3DS separately. And I don't know why, but to me the separate analog stick for 3DS feels kinda awkward to play with.

Third, the design. The 3DS looks kinda childish in a way, while the Vita... it's just beautiful to me lol. I don't know how else to put it.

Fourth, the menus. I can't put my finger on what the reason is, but I really don't like the main menu and all on the 3DS very much. It feels kinda messy for some reason. The LiveArea on the Vita is great. You can change the background on the LiveArea to whatever you like, and you can have different backgrounds for each of the LiveArea windows. I only use the same one for all of them though. It just simply feels so much more tidy than the 3DS. Although I love the new LiveArea UI, it would have been nice if they made an option to switch to XMB, so I could switch between them in between.

Fifth, the graphics. Not much to say here, but I do like the graphics on the Vita better than the 3DS. I don't really care about graphics though as long as the game is good, so I might as well have just left this out as it doesn't really matter lol. While I'm mentioning graphics though, the graphics on Zelda were amazing.

Sixth, omg, trophies that stack with the ones you earn on PS3! I'm not that much of a trophy hunter anymore, but I do love that *ding* sound the trophies make when you earn them. I don't know why it's so satisfying :P

Seventh, well, to be honest, I will always choose Sony over Nintendo. I used to love Nintendo when I was younger, but I guess that's just what Nintendo is (in my opinion); good for the younger gamers.

I feel like there's something I've forgotten, but I guess I'll have to add it later :P

So yeah, now I own a PS2, PS3, PSP, PS Vita and Sony Ericsson Xperia Play (R800i) aka the Playstation Phone.

Also, note that this list is not in any particular order. I just wrote whatever came to mind :P
Another thing, these are just my personal opinions. I am not writing this to piss anyone off. If you prefer the 3DS, then good for you. I'm not gonna tell you that you are wrong for liking it more because that is your opinion :)

4 days left!!

Almost done with the semester! Tomorrow we are gonna present our Tower Defense game that we made for the game programming class I take :D And on Monday I go to the US. Only 4 days to go. I can't wait!!! Almost 3 months of pure awesomeness with my fiance. It's gonna be the best summer EVAR! :D I'm also getting a PS Vita when I get there, which I can't wait to play. Ordered it off Amazon and got Mortal Kombat and a 4GB memory card for free, in addition to the things I ordered with the Vita; Uncharted: Golden Abyss, 16GB memory card, screen protector and a travel pouch. Will probably hang around GS more now that I actually have the time, so see you around ;) (Can't say I like the new look of the new comments system...)
