Everything is 95% completed! Just some minor checks left for both Alice & Arietta!

About time too, and the fact I had to clean my room (since there was boxes and paperwork everywhere.. gah).

Expect a celebration video tomorrow uploaded to Youtube when I go to work!

This IS really the month of Alice!

Will probably try to test-run PS2 streaming today...

Well, gotta Arietta into her new case and Alice is built.

  • Had some RAID1 problems (degrade errors), thought I lost all my data on my C Drive. Luckily after disabling RAID1 I could access Vista (before it had boot errors) and I'm currently transferring all my data into an external hdrive. Estimated time: 3 Hours (120gig worth of data)
  • Afterwards, I need to rebuild the RAID1 and hope it works

  • Currently working on data control such as data transfer as well as configuration settings
  • Starcraft 2 on Ultra MAX SETTINGS is awesome!

My new PC specs (still in works).

*Code name (tentatively): Alice/Aisha

Case: Antec 900BK RT [recycled]
PSU: Antec 1000w Truepower Quattro [recycled]

Mobo: Gigabyte LGA 1155 Intel Z68 SATA 6G/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

CPU: Intel Core i7-2600k Sandy Bridge 3.4 GHz [OCing to 4.4+]
Heatsink: Thermalright Venomousx CPU Heatsink

RAM: Corsair Vengenace 8GB
GPU: EVGA SuperClocked GeForce 570 HD
DVD: Asus DVD Burner

Main Drive: Intel 510 Series (Elm Crest) 120GB SATA III SSD "Solid State Drive"
Other Drive: Seagate Barracuda XT 2TB 7200 RPG SATA III Internal Hard Drive [RAID1]

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

TOTAL COST: $1700-$1800 currently (total includes other items not mentioned above)
This is due to the fact I'm using SSD ($300) instead of a normal hdrive as my main boot drive.. and I bought an extra hdrive to do a RAID1 mirroring.


{Main Keys for Alice/Aisha*}
- Latest games
Mainly Diablo 3.. and who knows what else.

- Ability to encode HD videos faster
Currently, it takes me 2 hours to encode a 10 minute HD video..

- Ability to stream PC games I may play
Something I wanted to try out but I can't do it on my current PC.

- Ability to stream with HD quality in HQ quality smoothly
My Core2Dual can't do it since it'll cause the stream to stagger nonstop making it like a slideshow.

I'm streaming all my games in S-Video mode if you wanna know...
And yes, I mean non-HD streaming since Comcast here isn't exactly the best.

- Solid State Drive (SSD) learning experience for my IT knowledge
SSD will be the future of hard-drives. Its energy consumption is low, read/write is instant and more!

Booting Windows 7 can take only 2-3 seconds on SSD while a few 10-30 seconds on a normal hdrive!



So now you know my reason for a new C.. plus I need a new one anyways especially with the HD technologies which my 4+ year old PC can't handle quickly enough.

Any suggestions or opinions.. let me know!

Some new info on the new villians!

Photobucket

Magic the Hard
The ability to steal the Goddess' powers.. hot evil loli looking villian.. leader of the group probably. Has the same VA as Magiquone and she does look like her somewhat (but younger loli version.. I guess).

Trick the Hard
Born from the hatred of gamers who failed to beat the game due to difficulty.

Brave the Hard
Born from the poor who wants to play games but can't afford it.

Judge the Hard
Born from the hatred of failed game creators.


Also there's new characters that represents dead companies (the character themselves have zombie "marks").
PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

The second one is Data East Corporation lol.


Last..
Photobucket

Inafune (co-creator of Rockman/Megaman)!

Bottom right corner is Dengeki-chan!
Does this mean Famitsu-chan may appear too?!


With all these new information like this... you can tell the idea and concept alone for Chou Jigen Neptune MK-II is freaking epic!

And you know LL will be importing it for sure!



NOTE: Info provided is from multiple sources (like Dengeki) but information should be assumed as unofficial until it is officially stated by CH.

Finally! The last two episodes of Puella Magi Madoka Magica is finally out in Japan and damn did it end in an exceptional fashion!

While it is a magical girl anime, it is very different in terms of how it is presented and as well as how messed up the plot is.

Either way.. the grade from me is 10/10 from me.

Pretty much puts it up there along with Nanoha and Sakura in terms of awesome magical girl anime.

One of the best anime of 2011 and one of the rarest anime I watch (I barely watch much anymore).

Photobucket Aside from that, almost done with Dynasty Warrior 7 (hopefully tomorrow or Saturday I'll have it 100% completed).

Afterwards, not sure what game I'll play.. but here are a few games I'm interested in playing for this year (update):

Chou Jigen Neptune MK-II (PS3-J)
Uni (picture above) ftw!

Catherine (PS3-E)
Yup, EN version this time!

White Knight Chronicle 2 (PS3-E)
Interested, but not sure if I want to play it yet.

Tales of Graces F (PS3-E)
Interested.

Alice: Madness Returns (PS3-E)
Loved the first game, expecting a lot for the second game.

That's all I can think of right now!
