Seems like a fun topic to talk about. The stereotypical gamer food is usually something portable and can be eaten with one hand. I’ve been thinking about what I eat before a gaming session. I put away about an hour before starting a session with the following foods: rice balls, water, an energy drink, and some dried fruits.
I absolutely love rice balls. They are compact, dense, and delicious. I live next to a tea shop that specializes in rice balls. My typical order is either SPAM or shrimp tempera with some hot green tea. I try not to overeat cause it makes me tired. If I’m not in the mood for rice balls, any sandwich or food in a compact form will do.
The energy drink varies at times. Sometimes I would have it and other days I would leave it out. It’s usually Red Bull and on rare occasion Monsters. Monster is usually too sweet for my taste. I would order ice coffee, but my stomach has been acting up lately so I tend to only have it in small amounts. The drink I need the most is regular water. There is literally no substitute for it. It keeps you quenched and hydrated.
Dried fruits like apricots, raisins are my go to snacks through a session. I stagger the fruits across the gaming session. It helps me sustain the session as long as I need it.
There’s my gamer fuel of choice. Without this subsistence, competing on ladder would literally be absolute hell. Stomach triumphs over gaming any day.
I realized about a week ago I haven’t done a blog post in a while. Things have mostly stayed the same. I’ll run down the last two months in quick fashion.
I played only a week and a half of season seven before deciding to quit. I quit because of two factors: I felt my progress stagnate and the toxic community can go to hell. So I hit masters and played eleven games after placement. Not too bad for a total of nine hours.
Maybe I’ll jump back to this season of competitive play. I need to deal with being on tilt better. The Overwatch League is amazing so far. That’s all I can say about it.
The mobile game from Delight Works. The ridiculously popular gacha game from Japan has been brought over to the states, but I’m not playing the NA version. I’m still on the Japanese version. I’ve spent too much time leveling my servants and grinding for material to just toss it away.
My goal this year is to skill up all these servants to 10/10/10. It’s going to take a long time at my casual pace, but I’ll get there eventually. I only have one servant at 10/10/10 and that’s Okita Souji.
The recent banner, Da Vinci and The Seven Counterfeit Heroic Spirits Rerun should help just a bit. The grind never ends in this game. The prologue for Chapter two was epic and crazy. I cannot wait for chapter two to be release sometime in the Spring. YOROKOBE!
I started to play this game again. Here’s my current progress:
I made great strides with all my gear. The dandelion hit Tet with a 69 failstack. I also grinded out an entire week to hit 61. My next goal is to get both the main and offhand to Tet. Right now, I’m AFK fishing at Tarif. I’m all grinded out and I need a break from it.
What to look forward to in the future
I’ll try to be more proactive this year in terms of writing. I’ll try to do one post every week or so and the content will vary greatly. Anyway, time to kick this new year into overdrive!
So a year has gone by since I’ve posted on this blog. Lack of interest in writing and laziness contributed to this…stagnation. Any sensible person would try climb out of the pit that is laziness, but I’ve wallowed in my own stupidity.
Being unemployed hasn’t helped either. Whatever funds I had saved up in college/part-time job I had before is exhausted. The only upside is living with my parents (A stigma in some circles). So I thought I use Word Press as an outlet to vent some of this frustration.
Besides the venting, I would like to post my usual gaming content on here to tell you my progress or takes on a game. Someone’s bound to read this blog (I hope) and can relate to my predicament. In any case, I hope I can provide entertaining content in the future and try to power through my problems as an individual.
I’m absolutely fuming over in League of Legends. Sometimes I wonder what goes on in the minds of my teammates. 1v4? Jumps into the fray and gets killed, blames teammates for not backing he/she up when the team is dispersed. All sorts of shit that happens in game makes me really mad. I call it, The Rage Cage. When I’m in that state, I lose it. I’m on tilt. I start making sloppy plays and events start to cascade towards defeat. It’s bad if it happens in ranked games. RAGE CAGE!
Finally reached ten likes on this blog, which surprises me. Ten might not sound a lot, but every little bit of support helps.
Besides that, I’m still fixing my Korean client for Black Desert because I’m getting some weird stutters that seem unusual. I hope you guys have a Happy New Year, Happy Holidays and all that good stuff.
Ever since playing the stressed test beta, I’ve had this craving, this unquenchable desire to play it. Since the game is in closed beta, only a select number of players have access, giving valuable feedback to Blizzard. Supposedly, every Tuesday is a beta wave, randomly flagging accounts to give players a chance at test and playing the game.
Today is Tuesday and the salt is literally raining down from above. Blizzard gave us delicious cake, only for them to take it away. In that cake was a drug that got me hooked to Overwatch. I want my cake back and I want it NOW! YOU CAN’T DO THIS TO US BLIZZARD! I will do everything in my power to get in. I will construct idols to your glory Blizzard. I will replace the Gaben poster I have on my wall with a poster of Jeff Kaplan. You will have my complete devotion Almighty Blizzard Entertainment!
On a more serious note, I don’t think a wave happened today. If that’s the case, we can only hope there will be one soon because my sanity is slowly withering away.
The increase workload had made me unavailable to do anything for the past month. Spring Break is on the horizon. It should give me time to actually write things, besides short stories and essays.
Sins of the First Scholar is coming out. I’m kind of hype to see the graphical difference and how it plays compared to the previous DX9 version. It should feel the same, but the new enemy placement and addition support in summoning is intriguing. Since PC will never see Bloodborne, this will have to do.
