Guitar Tabs/Chords

Once I was searching for a guitar tab of a song (I'm Yours). I tried a few websites and most of them aren't free. Well, you got to pay or become a member of the website. After searching the tab for an hour, I still couldn't find the tab without paying or registering.

Luckily, I found a website http://www.ultimate-guitar.com and i tried it. I found the tab I wanted and it's free. But they're too many tabs there. Some tabs doesn't match while some does. So I got to try each tab.

But I still found the right tab at last. Thanks to that web, I found other tabs I wanted to find. You should check it out. It's resourceful.

Maple Story New Job (Pirate)

After two years of playing Maple Story, I've seen many kinds of jobs in the game. Each of the jobs had different specialty and skills. During party quests, each job had different responsibility and roles. The training places are also almost different. The only common skill each job have is the Beginner Skill.

In 2008, a new job was released and I was so excited about it. The new job was named pirate. When the new job was released at Korea, I though that pirate uses dagger and gun as their weapon. I was right and wrong at the same time after I did some research on it. Pirate uses knuckles and guns as their weapon. The interesting part of pirate is their skills. It's as good as the other jobs' skills.

Pirate have two 2nd jobs. They're called Brawler and Gunslinger. Brawler uses their knuckle while Gunslinger, well, just like their name, uses a gun.

Brawler uses physical attacks which means when a Brawler attacks a monster, the Brawler has to go near to the monster to do punches or kicks. This give a disadvantage when a brawler attacks a magical monsters or a distance-shooting monster. But a Brawler's attacking power is almost strong as a warrior but faster than a warrior. So, Brawlers might 1-hit-ko a monster.

Gunslinger uses their gun to shoot monsters. Just like an assassin or an archer? Not at all. Gunslinger is like an assassin in terms of reloading bullet and an archer in terms of shooting style (had to stop moving to shoot). I have not research on Gunslinger yet so I can't give much details.

Maple Story Lag

Oh, I can't play Maple Story SEA(SouthEast Asia). When I play Maple Story, it lags. I don't know why. I never had a lagging stituation before. I'm guessing that the 0.64 patch is the cause of the lag because after that patch, I started to get lagging stituations. I asked some maplers during the game, they too get the lagging stituation. I hope Maple Story will not have this problem in the future. I also hope this lagging stituation will be gone ASAP (As Soon As Possible).

Dragon Ball Z : Buu's Fury (Goku)

Today, I'll be talking about the characters that you can play in Dragon Ball Z : Buu's Fury. You can use Goku, Gohan, Goten, Trunks and Vegeta in the game.

Each have their unique specialties and easy to use. Pressing the L button will change the specialty of the character to be use. To use the character's special attack, press the B button. Some special attacks can be charge while some are continuous. But while charging or continuously using the special attacks, your energy will go down slowly. So, use the special attacks wisely.

Goku

Special 1 : Instant Transmission
Description : While holding the B button, you can move the cursor to the enemy/item. You'll teleport to the selected enemy/item instantly and punch the enemy or take the item. Useful to attack many enemies or taking far/unreachable items.

Special 2 : Kamehameha
Description : A continuous ki blast if holding the button. Colour of the blast depends on the level of the skill. Strong against bosses but easy to be blocked as it is travels slow.

Special 3 : Super Saiyan
Description : Goku concentrates his power for a few seconds and becomes stronger and faster but limited time depends on the energy bar.Goku's hair turn golden colour. This technique is hard to activate when fighting bosses as the boss will chase you anywhere you go. I suggest running as far as possible before activating this technique.

Special 4 : Super Saiyan 3
Description : While in Super Saiyan, Goku once more concentrates his power and becomes even more stronger and faster but still limited time.Goku's hair becomes longer and his eye-brown gone. This technique is hard to activate when fighting bosses as the boss will chase you anywhere you go. I suggest running as far as possible before activating this technique.

Special 5 : Fusion (Gogeta) (unlockable)
Description : A fusion between Goku and Vegeta. Can't be distracted by enemies. Just follow the buttons shown and both of them will do a dance. Last for few minutes.
Unlock : Collect 15 Z-exhibits.

Dragon Ball Z : Buu's Fury (GBA)

During the holidays, I told that I've been playing games for the whole day. Well, now I'm going to tell a game I played for 8 hours straights in one day. I can't believe it's so easy to play, even without using any power-ups.

I played a GBA (Game Boy Advance) game named Dragon Ball Z : Buu's fury. Based on the TV Series Dragon Ball Z story line. It's worth it to play the first time but not the second time cause it's the same story line over and over again. You are able to play different characters but limited depends on the story line. But after you've defeated the final boss, you can choose any character to play.

You can only choose Goku, Gohan, Goten, Trunks and Vegeta. The first part of the game, you'll be playing as Goku. Well, you're already dead cause before this game, you sacrifice yourself (Goku) to save the planet Earth. Each character have their own unique special attacks. The only common thing about every character you play are the punches and ki blast (firing an energy ball).

The good part of this game is that you can add your own stats (e.g strength, power). You can just concentrate on one stat but it's better to spread the stats because some of the enemies you face are hard to hit with punchs and kicks because their physical attacking speed are fast and hard to defends.

School Holiday

School holiday has come. Many students (except SPM students who are currently taking their SPM now) are happy and enjoying their holidays till their last minutes. Most of the students are happy with school holidays while some aren't as happy as them. Well, I'm one of them who aren't happy with school holidays.

It's so boring during school holidays for me. I can only stare at the computer the whole day doing nothing productive. I just waste my time playing games from morning till evening. At night, I just watch television till my eyes drop or 1:30 a.m (it's the longest I can take).

I've decided to do something productive or any activities that I can gain something during the school holidays. But, will I make it ? I wonder.
