March 10th is a unique day where if you look at it closly MAR is short for March and the day being the 10th without the TH put them together and you get Mario! Mario is a well known character in the gaming industry. Being such an icon he gets his very own day every year on March 10th. People say it’s his birthday which it’s not really known when mario’s actual birthday is. While he 1st debut on July 9, 1981 in the game Donkey Kong as Jump Man and then later made an appearance in September 13, 1985 when Super Mario Brothers came out for the NES people can argue those can be his birthday. It was Super Mario Brothers that made him so famous in the 1st place. Come to think of it his birthday could be June 23rd that’s if the cake you see at the beginning of the June 23, 1996 release of Super Mario 64 is to be a Birthday Cake. Either way it’s a fun way to celebrate.
In 2016 Nintendo started celebrating March 10th as Mario day basically in a way since not only Mario 64 would of been 20 years old at the time but it’s also celebrating the Mario Franchise in general. They even released a video on youtube that day as well even though sadly it shows uploaded March 9th 2016.
This however has been celebrated by fans longer then that. The true fans know that Mario is the true OG in the gaming world. If it weren’t for Super Mario Brothers we won’t be having the games we have now. Youtube would just be full of only cat videos. Pewdiepie would of never been “born”. Twitch would of stayed as JustinTV and be full of nothing but IRL, Music and Art shows. Let’s just truly be thankful for Mario and the gang!
This past Saturday February 8th I decided to do a passenger run that i never done before! The ones where they want you to go a crazy amount of distance to do one scan! The passenger wanted me to take her to the Quantom World which upon arrival it seemed to be the smallest planet ever recorded!
There were a lot of planets scanned in our journey. It seems I made more then expected! I took a snapshot of all the turn ins to show how much i made on each page of data. The 1st page was the most i ever seen! I even had a few systems worth over 6.1 million! Most of those systems i could of made more if i fully scanned the planets with probes but that is more time consuming. Check out the list!
By doing all of this I was able to finally get my rank of ELITE for exploration! I was sitting on pioneer for a long time!
Would i do this again? Not anytime soon but i do plan to go further for fun next time without feeling pressured on time itself. Having all that data for exploration is good but knowing i had a passenger with me the whole time made me worry more about her then the exploration itself.
Galakrond’s Awakening Chapter 4 is now live and it’s the final chapter in this series. E.V.I.L is trying to resurrect Galakrond while our heros need to stop them as well as find reno. This story is great! I’ve really been loving how you get to see both sides of the story and actually play as the hero you were against when you do the other story. What i never understood is the connection of certain characters. In this chapter we had two character we were up against on the EVIL side but when we did the hero side you played as one of the two characters. What bothers me is the timeing of when you play against them. There is no real timeline so I guess that is why it bother me. Other then that it was really fun!
I can’t really tell you which side was more fun to play on. I liked on as EVIL you had Galakrond as a minion who was way OP and fun smashing everything! Then you play as reno who has the ability to use spells twice which i found fun cause i loved seeing certain spells used more then once. If the RNG was just right you can almost speed run the final boss fight. Hell i may do that just for fun.
Galakron’s Awakening: Chapter 3 came out on February 4th, 2020 and as you can see this is Chapter 3 of 4 in this series. It seems that E.V.I.L. really wants to resurrect the dragon while the league of explorers are trying to stop them as well as try to save one of their own. As like the past two weeks each “mission” gave rewards and most of the cards have been previously been played in past weeks. I feel most of the newish cards you see in these decks may be new cards for the last chapter that comes out on the 11th. This is just me guessing.
As for this chapter it was really fun! I really liked the mode where we had airship vs airship and there were the autocanons. It seemed confusing at 1st but easy to do once you saw what was going on. So much explosions i felt like Michael Bay directed that segment of the story.
As previously mentioned you can buy this chapter for $6.99 or 700 gold but i recommend the full package for $19.99 if you yet to do so.
I am in the middle of updating the website to make it up to par with code and security. I basically am starting over with this blog site sadly but the old site is still active under http://old.shufunk.net – This post is a test post from the new system. As you can see it auto posts to steemit so if you are reading this on steemit.com it means the setup was perfect. Spent 8 hours trying to get the website up! it seems the DNS settings and SSL configurations i had were way outdated then i expected and glad my hosting provider was able to help me resolve the problem.
I do find it weird that i did the exact same procedure last month on another domain i own. It had an old wordpress that was unsecure and i reinstalled it with a newer installation that synced well with the SSL protocols and it’s been running smooth ever since. I wonder why I had troubles today? What was supposed to take less then 10 minutes ended up 8 freaking hours! I was hoping to livestream today but can’t now cause it’s getting too late in the day. It’s ok there will be a livestream later in the week.
The next episode for hearthstone is on tuesday so expect a stream tuesday night around my normal time of 1am. It will be restreamed so i can have a VOD to upload to youtube like i have for the past two hearthstone episodes. This is episode 3 of 4? Last expansion i expected 4 but ended up 5 but i doubt that will happen again. We shall see. I am really curios of what’s in store.
In other news I been catching up on my GTA with my new xbox one over the weekend. I was doing the special collection where you find all the figurines and you get a hero outfit as a reward. I was up to 95 found when all the sudden the numbers glitched and said 95 for the next two figurines and then started working again. It’s stuck on 97 even though i do have 98 where 99 and 100 only spawn when you find 98. It’s been taking too long to back track. I have been using a special tool that allows me to track what i found. I should of used it in the 1st place. Oh well just gonna finish up eventually. Gonna collect the cards too so i can have the special deck in my VIP penthouse. After that who knows? I may adapt calimeatwagons ideas on how he does things. He has spreadsheets of how to make money at certain stages of the game. He’s demonstrated many times how it works and great for casual play like me. This allows me to do GTA one day but another game another day where i am keeping up on the variety. Having everything on the PC account is boring. I find it exciting to start over again but seeing if i can get things without relying on shark cards.
That is all i can think about for the 1st post of the new blog. I will keep on maintaining it like i have over the past 12+ years. Just sad i can’t have the archive on this database.
EDIT: This sentence is the edit. Just making sure edits show up on steemit
