Labels A to Z, Part Two

I decided to change my mind at little by making it every other day post than a once to twice a week post.


BlackBerry - NSL - BlackBerry is a line of mobile e-mail and smartphone devices developed and designed by Canadian company Research In Motion (RIM) since 1996. BlackBerry functions as a personal digital assistant with address book, calendar and to-do list capabilities. It also functions as a portable media player with support for music and video playback and camera picture and video capabilities. BlackBerry is primarily known for its ability to send and receive (push) Internet e-mail wherever mobile network service coverage is present, or through Wi-Fi connectivity. BlackBerry is mainly a messaging phone with the largest array of messaging features in a smartphone today. This includes auto-text, auto-correct, text prediction, support for many languages, keyboard shortcuts, text emoticons, push email, push Facebook and Myspace notifications, push Ebay notifications, push instant messaging with BlackBerry Messenger, Google Messenger, ICQ, Windows Live Messenger and Yahoo Messenger; threaded text messaging and a customizable indicator light near the top right of all Blackberry devices. All notifications and conversations from applications are shown in a unified messaging application which third party applications can access also. Many of these applications would have to be running in the background of other phones to be used. BlackBerry's push gives BlackBerry devices their renowned battery life. All data on the phone is compressed through BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS). BlackBerry has about two thirds less data transfer than any other smartphone, while supplying the same information. BlackBerry commands a 20.8% share of worldwide smartphone sales, making it the second most popular platform after Nokia's Symbian OS. The consumer BlackBerry Internet Service is available in 91 countries worldwide on over 500 mobile service operators using various mobile technologies. I use this tag when ever I talk about my phone.


Blaire - NSL - Blaire is girl I now online who lives is Califonia. She is apart of a non-nude cam girls known as the Smartz Girls. I while talk about the Smartz Girls at a later date as there is a label for them. I have a massive crush on her but sadly I do known the likely hood of any thing happening is slim to non as there are a lot of compucations. However a person can dream and dreams can come to at times, but she is a friend and if nothing would ever happen I still want to be friends. She is currently on holiday in Europ and will not be back until in the Stats until sometime in October. Blaire has always been the number one topic, however Anime is slowly creeping up on her.


Blog Spot - NSL - Blogger (Blog Spot) was started by a tiny company in San Francisco called Pyra Labs in August of 1999. This was in the midst of the dot-com boom. But they were not exactly a VC-funded, party-throwing, football-in-the-lobby-playing, free-beer-drinking outfit. (Unless it was other people's free beer.) They were three friends, funded by doing annoying contract web projects for big companies, trying to make their own grand entrance onto the Internet landscape. What they were originally trying to do does not matter so much now. But while doing it, they created Blogger, more or less on a whim and thought — Hmmm...this is interesting. I use the label when I ever talk about Blog Spot/Blogger or my blog in general.


Campaign - NSL / MSW - Campaign has taken place in this most unique venue since 2001. Their objective is to present the miniature games hobby to as many people as possible. Whilst existing wargamers benefit from the lack of any admission charge and the obvious on site attractions for partners or children, the thousands of MK shoppers have free access to Campaign as they move about thecentre:mk. The centre management estimate an average footfall of 100,000 people on Saturday and 50,000 people on Sunday. Obviously not all of these people will pass through Middleton Hall, or Campaign, but the John Lewis store is very popular and Middleton Hall is situated at John Lewis’s main entrance. The is a local Wargames convention I go to. It is yearly event that happens on the weekend of the first full week of May.


Naruto girls in Christmas cloths
Christmas - NSL - Christmas is a holiday observed mostly on December 25 to commemorate the birth of Jesus, the central figure of Christianity. The date is not known to be the actual birth date of Jesus, and may have initially been chosen to correspond with either the day exactly nine months after some early Christians believed Jesus had been conceived, the date of the winter solstice on the ancient Roman calendar, or one of various ancient winter festivals. This is a new label started this week for all things Christmas.


Next Labels A-Z should be Code Geass, Comic Books, Computers, Cosplay and Cosplay Deviants. Until next time, enjoy.

Neoscream's Life, the 20th to the 26th of September

Starscream from the up and
coming new show
Transformers: Prime

Well last week I was busy tidying my Heroclix, having battery problems and mad rush getting my blog posts written and up. What will this week lead to? Oh and I am not digging the new look Starscream from Transformers: Prime.

On Monday I was awoke by my mum phoning me on my mobile. She had talked to the guy in the repair shop by her and the said by the look of it the printer was damage due to pulling paper in the wrong way. They also said it would be better to buy a new printer than repair it. Great, so that means I have to buy a new printer after work. After the call I noticed my phone’s batteries were in the red. WTF. It was on change for most of yesterday and when I went to bed it was fully charge. So I had to plug in into the mains charge, which meant I could not work on last week’s log in the morning. Because of this I decided to watch the last four episodes Death Note. The show was great, but the second half was not as great as the first half. However the ending was great with the way Light reacted. Same it was the L want-a-be that revived him and not the real L who die. On the way to work my blue tooth headphones ran out of battery power. Really, WTF. They were on charge to of yesterday day and morning too. What is it with me and rechargeable batteries just lately? In face what is it with me and technology? Everything seems to break down or not work recently. Never mind. Anyway also on the way to work I write the whole of Monday’s entry for last week’s log.  Wow that was quick. I also finish Tuesday’s entry during my lunch break. When I finished at 4PM, I headed to Curries as they were right next to us. I was after a Kodak printer as we still had ten tons of ink for it as the old one was a Kodak and the ink is so damn cheap. You can get a black ink cartridge and a colour ink cartridge for less than a black ink cartridge for for make of printer. Ok a Kodak cartridge does not last as long as a cartridge from another company, but in the long run they are still cheaper to run. Oh and when I am talking about printer, I am talking about an all in one printer (printer, scanner and photocopier). Currys had three different models of Kodak all-in-one printers. One was £80 but on sell for £70, a wireless one that was £140 but on sell for £90 and another wireless one for £100. My mum was perpaired to spend the money on the one on sell for £70, but I said I would be willing to add £20 to it for the £90 wireless one. But sadly they were out of stock of the £90 one. However they did say PC World had one in stock. For those who do not know Currys, PC World and Dixsons are all a part of the same company. So I had to walk all the way to PC World. On the way I stopped at a newsagent by the train station to get a drink and notice they were selling Christmas Kit-Kats bars. There is still three months left until Christmas. I also decided to quickly pop into Toys'R'Us to see if they had any Transformers I want on sell. I picked up Transformers: Animated Prowl with sidecar/samurai armour (Samurai Prowl) for a third off. When I got to PC World they sadly did not have the printer I wanted in stock, so I had to go with the £70 one, but I did end up spending £16 more for a 3 month protection for it so if anything like this happens again I can get it replace with no extra charge. When I got home I found I had a massage on Twitter from one of the hosts of TFWire which I replied to. Also there was a new tweet from Blaire. She was heading to Milan for the Milan fashion week. That is so her. Hope she enjoys it. When I get home I watched some anime and finished all but Sunday and the end of last week log.

Samurai Prowl
It was Tuesday and I had the day off. When I was checking Anime-Media to see if there were any new episodes of the shows that I am watching, I notice a trailer for Final Fantasy XIV (14) and watched it. It looks just like Final Fantasy XI (11) but with better graphics. Both are MORPGs. After watch the trailer I finished and posted last week’s log and on time. Hippy. Then I decided to finally get back on working on my game MS Wars by fixing the four problems I had last time we tested it (Ramming, friendly cover, turrets and ?). I also posted on my MS Wars blog to let people know that I am back working on it. I was searching the web for a picture for my MS Wars blog post and found a picture I had to send a link to Simon and Blaire and show my mum when she got back from work. After fixing the problems I looked for an anime internet radio channel and found one called Anime Acdarmy radio. I then worked on the DreamClix side of my Heroclix post. I then received an e-mail for Blaire which was a reply re-email her eairlier on in the day. I than sent her another e-mail asking her how was the holiday going. That was it really.

On Wensday my Dad was off work so I could get a left into work. But before I headed off to work I built a 200 points team for Heroclix as I could not use the planned team and I did some major change to the game I am desgining, MS Wars. I will explain the changes in my next post on my MS Wars blog. I was down to work 12PM to 9PM but as we were dead and had all our staff in that meant to be in, I ended up finishing at 7PM. When I got home I just worked on this week's log and my MS Wars game.

On the next day, Thursday, we ran out of bread, milk and toothpaste. Luckily there was enough Milk for breakfeast and toothpaste to clean my tooth. I did not have the time to go before work, so I had to hope I had the time after work to get them somewhere. I worked from 11AM to 4PM. I decided to phone my dad to get the stuff we had run out of. He does work at a mini supermarket store so it would be easier for him to get them. When I got home quickly surfed the web before cooking dinner. I ended getting to Heroclix a little later than I hope because my dad was late home, so I had to get the flooding tables as the tables we perfer had been taken. I ended up getting back home at about 11:30PM and going to bed at 1AM.

On Friday I woke up from a nightmare. The nightmare begins with me and a large number of my mates for some reason went to this huge bank. Then out of no where, a group of armed men with angry dogs came in. It was an armed robbery. They locked the main doors and headed to the back of the bank to where the vault was. They had not left any one guarding the bank visitors. So for some unknown reason Darren H and Simon decided to get everybody to mob the robbers. I tried to talk them out of it but it did not work everyone went off after the robbers. I followed but for some reason I was lagging behind. Then I entered some kind of maze. It almost felt like I was in a computer game. Some kind of Final Fantasy and Batman: Arkham Asylum mix. Everybody was nearing the end of the maze. Though out the maze there were sleeping guards left by the rubbers which everyone were avoiding. For some unknow reason I could see an over head map of the maze but that is where the problem started the rout I took led me to a deadend. On the map it looked like I could turn left, but in fact what seemed to be a left turn was another path on a defferent elevation. I turned around and headed back. Even me or some else awoke one of guards, as all the guard woke up and the other robbers started rushing out of the valute room. Everybody retriter, but for some reason we ended up leave the maze a different rout then we entered it. We were out side. There were two swimming pools and it seemed that we were on top of a hill. For some reason it felt like a dead end and there was a moment were we wondered where are the robbers. But the robbers appear at the doorway. We all we crashed down. Most of the robbers stand there by the door while one of them walked up to me. He was carrying an electric drill. He started threatering to drill me. I was terrorfred. After a while he gave up and walked being me threatering some one else. Then out of the blue I felt a poke in the back and I woke up. I hate nightmares. But the scary thing is, about an hour after my mum received a phone call from my dad. The shop he runs just had an armed robbery. He said he is OK (knowing him that is a lie). I went to work worrying about my mum who was stressing out about it, which is not a good this becouse of her hart problems. I worked from 11AM to about 6PM. When I finish my dad was home. My mum told me that my stupid heroics my dad did. When the armed robbery was happening he was doing some work in the office. He then went to cheech on the store a notice a person in a ballayclrver holding a knife. My dad grabbed a near by trolly and charged at the guy, pinning him to the wall. Stupidy my dad forgot to cheek to see if there were more of them, which there was. They ended up returning the favour and rammed him into a wall with the trolly. He then co-oparated like he shouyld have had by his work contrate. His back is meant to be brused but how badly we did not know becasuse he will not show my or my mum. Also there was a post on Twitter from Blaire. She was opn the train to Spain now.

Only Rich and Jake turned up for coffee as Darren H was busy with Lisa trying to get breakfearst at Sainsburys, as according to what Richard said about the text he recived from Darren, the place they were at did not have a kictin. Have they finally gotten a place of their own? Did I miss heard Richard? Did Richard miss read the text? We planned to meet up later on, but I had to contact Richard after work to find out what was happening. I got to work for a 12PM start to find it was busy as the 11AM person had not turned up let. I was meant to of finished at 5PM but because of problems and the fact we were busy I ended up finihing at 7:20PM. Because of the later finish I could not get a left from my dad to the place I was meant to meet the others and as I felt tird I decided it is best not to go out sadly. As I recived an e-mail from Darren S with the information I needed I finished off and posted my Heroclix post before going to bed.

Sunday was a day of like normal. The was a new photo set from Jsica on Cosplay Deviants so I decided to post a post about it on the log but had a real nightmare tying to post correctly. It took an hour to post a post that should on taken ten minutes. After finally getting it to post correctly, I went to do a little bit of food shopping with mum as she forgot to get anything for lunches. While shopping I noticed an Iron Man advent calendar which I had to get being a big Iron Man fan. Apart from that not much happen apart from posting the new “Watch, Listen and Read” post.

Friday did really get to me. Never mind. Well until next time, enjoy.

Labels A to Z, Part one

An Anime called "The Melancholy
of Haruhi Suzumiya"
Here is the start of a week to twice a week post the will talk about the Labels of both of my blogs. There will be five Labels a post and I will trying to keep in alphabetical order. However new labels added after were they should have been will be added to the end.

Anime - NSL - Anime is animation originating in Japan. Outside Japan, anime is also referred to as "Japanese animation". While the earliest known Japanese animation dates from 1917, and many original Japanese cartoons were produced in the ensuing decades, the characteristic anime style developed in the 1960s—notably with the work of Osamu Tezuka—and became known outside Japan in the 1980s. Anime, like manga, has a large audience in Japan and recognition throughout the world. Distributors can release anime via television broadcasts, directly to video, or theatrically, as well as online. Both hand-drawn and computer-animated anime exist. It is used in television series, films, video, video games, commercials, and internet-based releases, and represents most, if not all, genres of fiction. Anime gained early popularity in East and Southeast Asia and has garnered more-recent popularity in the Western World. I use this tag on anything related and it is currently the second most used label.

Anime-Media - NSL - Is a web site were I normally watch anime shows that are not out in the UK. The Site is  http://anime-media.com/

Attacking - MSW - 1. Take aggressive action against (a place or enemy forces) with weapons or armed force: "in December, the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor".
2. (of a person or animal) Act against (someone or something) aggressively in an attempt to injure or kill: "a doctor was attacked by two youths".
In MS Wars, posts with this label contains rules on making attack in the game.


BattleTech - MSW - Classic BattleTech is a table-top wargame set in the fictional BattleTech universe that simulates combat between futuristic mechanized forces. Originally published by FASA Corporation, the game is now produced by Catalyst Game Labs under license from WizKids. BattleTech is a turn-based, multiplayer game, typically played on a map divided into hexagonal grids with figurines or counters representing military units. Paper record sheets provide detailed information about each unit, including its armament, armor and equipment, and are used to track damage, heat buildup, ammunition and various other data. Players use two six-sided dice to determine variable results, such as whether a shot strikes its target and the location it hits. Of the units represented in the game, the most common are BattleMechs known as 'Mechs', large, semi-humanoid fighting machines controlled by human pilots. While pre-designed 'Mechs, vehicles and other military units are provided with the game, a complex system of design rules allows players to create their own custom units even in the introductory boxed set. This engineering facet of the game has remained enduringly popular with players and may explain BattleTech's longevity. I use this label when I talk about the game on my MS Wars blog, however I would use Gaming on this blog

Birthdays - NSL / MSW - A birthday, as the term implies, is the day or anniversary of the particular day on which a person was born. Though by no means universal, birthdays are celebrated in numerous cultures, often with a party or, in some instances, a rite of passage. Though major religious traditions such as the Buddhist or the Christian celebrate the birth of their founders, the most prominent example of which is Christmas, principled opposition to the very idea of celebrating birthdays is to be found among certain religious groups. I use this label when I talk about someone's or something's birthday.

Next Labels A-Z should be BlackBerry, Blaire, Blog Spot, Campaign and Christmas. Until next time, enjoy.

Heroclix 23rd September, Crisis on Infinite Earths: Week Two

Batman from Batman Beyond and Spider-Girl

So about the wait been waiting for the other players build pools from Darren. Well it is week 2 of the Crisis on Infinite Earths campaign. So far I am doing well in the campaign after one week, first place in face. But what will the second week bring. I would like to note that I made a listing mistake on Mockingbird on last weeks post. She is from Sinister and not Supernova like I listed.

This week's, Week Two is just standard games. Round four is 400 points, round five is 200 point and round six is 300 points.

So Round Four, 400 points. I used my 400 point force that I made. Before I revile which figures from my build pool above I used in the 200 point team, I wanted to talk about why I went for them. I decided to go for a Teen team for this point’s value. It was not too small where I could can have many characters, but not too big. The characters I went for were:

Batman (Arkham Asylum) 64
Cosmic Boy (Legion of Super Heroes) 70
Dream Girl (Justice League) 50
Karate Kid (Crisis) 63
Klarion (Crisis) 76
Spider-Girl (Secret Invasion) 77
=400 points and three re-rolls.

 I went up against Adrian’s 400 points team. He was using an Avengers team with:

Invisible Girl (Exp Clobberin Time) 57 + Fantastic Four ATA 5 = 62
Iron Fist (Secret Invasion) 70
Spider-Girl (Secret Invasion) 77
Iron Man (Mutations and Monsters) 100
Quicksilver (Avengers) 49
Scarlet Witch (Avengers) 35
=393 points and three re-rolls.

This was a long fight as we could not hit each other. In fact we only manage to knock one character each. He took out my Karate Kid and I took out his Iron Man. As Iron Man cost more than Karate Kid, I won the round.

Round Five, 200 points. As 75% of my 200 point team will not be back until the next round, I have to build a new team. This was had to do as because I was work with my 500 and 600 points teams and I was ruling out any figure over 100 points which was all my heavy hitters on both teams.  Also Hawkeye was out of action so I could not go for a cheap Avengers team with him as the main attack piece.  The final team was:

Robot (Invincible) 92
Dark Beast (Mutations and Monsters) 69
Scarlet Witch (Avengers) 35
=196 points and no re-rolls.

I found I had to go for a non themed team due to points values of the characters. I was up against Darren’s 200 points team. He was using a Gotham City team with:

Hitman (Arkham Asylum) 61
Batman (Arkham Asylum) 64
Batman (Justice League) 75
=200 points and one re-roll.

It was a total white wash. My team was crap. I should have gone with Yellowjacket. Sadly Dark Beast has gone MIA so he is no longer around to use.

The last round of the week, Round Six, was 300 points. As my 300 point team was ok still I used them again.

Annihilus and the Fantastic Four
Beast (Mutations and Monsters) 73
Cyclops (Mutations and Monsters) 50
Jean Grey (Rook Universe) 31
Psylocke (Vet Xplosion) 29
Storm (Danger Room) 40
Wolverine (Fantastic Forces) 71
=294 points and three re-rolls.

I went up against Michel’s 300 points team. He went for a non themed team with:

Penance (Hammer of Thor) 58 + Thunderbolts 8 = 66
Annihilus (Secret Invasion) 127
Gravity (Secret Invasion) 75
Robin (Crisis) 35
=303 points and no re-rolls.

Yes I now know his team works out more than it should have been. I think he used the old points cost of Thunderbolts than the new one. But any way, I won that round only losing Psylocke and sadly she went MIA, but I MIA his Annihilus with Storm.

Again sadly both Michael and Adrian had have loses to their forces. I got second place this week, but I am sill in first place over all in the campaign by about 20 to 30 victory points with Darren closely behind me. My current status is:

My Force
Batman (Arkham Asylum) XP 0.
Batman (Justice League) XP 0.
Batman (Vet Legacy) XP 0.
Beast (Mutations and Monsters) XP 0.
Cosmic Boy (Legion of Super Heroes) XP 0.

No XP and no details on how long they are action of action for. Also typing those up, I have notice that there are characters missing from the build pools so it looks like these are not the full lists.

Moloid (Secret Invasion) 15 (was missing from the list)
Morbious (Secret Invasion) 67 
Mr Fantastic (Secret Invasion) 100      
Penance (Hammer of Thor) 58 + Thunderbolts 8 = 66

Speedy (Crisis) MIA
Spiderman (Mutations and Monsters) 41

Wondergirl (Crisis) 60 + Stunning Blow (Feat) 10 = 70

Next week round seven will be 400 points, round eight will be 600 points and four actions and lastly round nine will be 300 points. With the 400 points team I need to rework in a little as Karate Kid will be out of action for it. With the 600 points team I need to rework in a lot as Robot will be out of action for it and Dark Beast is no more. And with the 300 points team I need to rework in a little as Psylocke is no more. This comes to a part where I best explain two changes in the campaign rules that Darren did last week which I forgot to post. First is how you can spend your XP. Original it was 1 XP = 1 point which you could ever use to buy a feat for the character, to upgrade the character to a different version or to recruit another character to your build pool. However after the loses Adrian and Michael took last week Darren changed it to 1 XP = 1 point for feats or upgrade and 1 XP = 5 points for recruiting. This leads to the second change. The build pool cannot go over 2000 points, no matter what. However the MIA characters are not counted towards your 2000 point build pool, but you can still spend their XP. This means I have a 100 points gap to fill with a total of 80 XP (400 points) to recruit with. Who will I recruit? You have to wait until next week.

In this week's DreamClix I will be doing House of M Iron Man, Light Yagami/Kira from Death Note and Sasuke Uchiha from Naruto.

First off is House of M Iron Man. In House of M, Tony Stark is the owner of Stark Enterprises, a company given to him by his father. He is a winning contestant on 'Sapien Death Match', a reality TV fighting show which involves humans in power-armour battling each other. He lives in the shadow of his father, and has been developing a superior suit of armour to protect him. Iron Man earned the admiration of human and mutant alike, including Magneto himself, when he and a team of Sapien Death Match fighters stopped a terrorist plot to kill hundreds of mutants with 'gene bombs.' On a related note, his father Howard Stark is alive in this reality before he was killed by Magneto. He should have Running Shot, Range Combat Expert and Invulnerability to begin with and then dropping to Super Strength and Toughness at the end. Six to eight clicks of health with starting states of Movement 14 (that drops heavy), Attack 10, Defence 17, Damage 3 and range 8 with one target. He should not have any TA and the keywords Armour and Scientist and maybe Sapien Death Match fighter and Celebrity.

Next is Light Yagami from Death Note. The main character of Death Note, Light is an extremely intelligent, yet bored 17-year old student who is not satisfied with the current justice system. When he finds the Death Note, dropped in the human world by the shinigami Ryuk, (on purpose) he decides to use it to kill all criminals and earns the title Kira, taken with the pronunciation of Killer. His ultimate goal is to cleanse the world of evil to create a world without criminals and then reign over this new world as its "god." He should have a trait called “Death Note”, special abilities known as “Controlled Death” and “Justice Strikes Back” and the following powers Psychic Blast, Outwit and Probability Control.
Death Note: -2 to attack value and damage value for close-combat based attacks.”
Controlled Death: Light cam use mind control, however the target tacks damage equal to the damage value of Light after the action.”
Justice Strikes Back: Light has Super-Senses. If he success with his Super-Senses roll and he does not have two or more counters on him, he can make a free range combat action.”
He should how four or five clicks of health with starting states of Movement 8, Attack 10, Defence 16, Damage 3 and range 12 with three targets. He should not have any TA and the keywords Kira and teen.
Also LE version of him called Kira with Stealth (maybe a special that gives him outwit and stealth), the Mystic TA and maybe one click of extra health.

Lastly it is Sasuke Uchiha. Although he starts off as one of the protagonists, as the story progresses, he becomes one of the series' most dynamic major antagonists. Sasuke is one of the two remaining members of the Uchiha clan, a former member of Team Kakashi, a missing-ninja from Konohagakure, the leader of the former Taka, an associate of Akatsuki, and an international criminal. But let us stop back to the begging. Sasuke's early childhood, as told over the course of Naruto manga volume twenty-five, was spent not being able to catch up to his brother, Itachi Uchiha, a natural prodigy of the Uchiha clan whom Sasuke looked up to and admired. In an effort to win some recognition for himself, Sasuke trained diligently to win some of his parents' attention, though he was never able to surpass the milestones set in place by his brother, who would be the only one to acknowledge Sasuke's accomplishments. In time, Itachi began to distance himself from the clan and fell out of his family's confidence, which consequently began to look to Sasuke as the new future for the clan. Soon after Sasuke started to be accepted into his family, he returned home one day to find the streets littered with the corpses of the Uchiha clan. Upon rushing home, Sasuke found Itachi standing over his parents’ corpses. As Sasuke tried to flee, Itachi went on to explain that he had never loved his little brother. Claiming that Sasuke was not worth killing, Itachi encouraged him to get stronger by living a life of hate and anger towards him, with his sole purpose being to avenge the clan. Itachi left, and in the absence of a loving family Sasuke agreed to do as instructed, dedicating his life to killing Itachi. After the massacre, Sasuke is brought up pampered and without normal problems, and to believe that he was the best merely because he was an 'Uchiha'. As the set I am designing is based on the early arcs/start, this figure will be based on Sasuke during the Land of Waves Arc with him gaining his Sharingan eyes at the end of his dial, this will be a special ability called “Sharingan Eyes Awaken”.
Sharingan Eyes Awaken: Sasuke has Probability Control but during his turn he can only use it on his own dice rolls.”
He should also have the powers Range Combat Expert and Pulse Wave for his fire attacks, running attack, charge, stealth, Replacement Jutsu aka Super Senses and maybe toughness and willpower. He should how six clicks of health with starting states of Movement 10, Attack 10, Defence 17, Damage 1 or 2 and range 8 with three targets. He should have the Naruto TA and the keywords of Team Kakashi, Kid, Konohagakure, Ninja (generic) and Uchiha Clan.
 
Well that is it for this week’s Heroclix post.  Next week’s DreamClix I plan on doing House of H Johnny Storm, Rukia Kuchiki from Bleach without her Soul Reaper powers, Buluma from Dragon Ball and if I have the time I am planning on starting TransformersClix but I try to do low powered G1 characters. Maybe Cliffjumper and Runamuck. While until next time, enjoy.

Anime Video Special

As for the last two weeks I have not been able to post any opening in the last two "Watch, Listen and Read" posts, I have decided to do a special post.

First off is the second opening to season one of Mobile Suit Gundam 00. It is called Ash Like Snow and is done by the band The Brilliant Green.






Next is the second main opening to Macross Frontier. It is called Lion and is song by May'n and Megumi Nakajima. May'n and Megumi Nakajima does voices and singing of the two main female characters. May'n  does Sheryl Nome and Megumi Nakajima does Rank Lee.
















Lastly here is a bonus video. It is a a track from Ga Rei -Zero- called Dark Side of the Light by Faylan. The video is a fan made one using seens from season two of Mobile Suit Gundam 00. 


Hope you all enjoy, until next time.

Neoscream's Life, the 13th to the 19th of September

G1 Starscream

I will try to make this quick as not much happened and to get everything back in pace. So quickly I wrote most of it in one day. In fact six out of seven days was written. This has lead to me posting this week’s “Neoscream’s Log” on time. Oh and yes even thou I have a Transformer picture on this post I am not giving to the Transformer label.

On Monday about half an hour before I had to go to work I found my BlackBerry's when dead. I found this a little odd as I had gave it a quick charge the day before and had not used it at all on Sunday. I had work from 11AM to 6:30PM. I was down till 4AM but we were still down two members of staff. I was a little pissed that I had to stay as I bearly had power on my BlackBerry to contact my parents and that I was not told that I had to stay longer until less then an hour before I was meant to finish. Other than work I was still busy tidying my Heroclix.

Random picture of Venice
It was my day off on Tuesday and my mum was off too. My laptop was picked up by the curryer to go off to be repaired. After having a good look at it, it was not just the hing cover that was broken but the chunchy metal hing has snaped too. After it was picked up we went to PC World to get some printer ink and printerble sticky labels for my mum. Other than that I was still busy tidying my Heroclix and building the teams for the Heroclix campaign starting on Thrusday. Oh and there was a tweet on Twitter from Blaire. She was on her way to Venice now after visiting Paris and Amsterdam.

15mm Romans
On Wenseday morning I quickly colleted the Heroclix figures I needed for the campaign before going to work. I had a long work shift, 12PM to 9PM. As I was about to leave the person in charge of the shift got a phone call. After the call he told me to come at 12PM the next day instead of 11AM. Ok fine. When I get home I started to write up my teams on the team build pool form Darren S gathed. I also did a mad rush rebuild and re collecting the 300 point team (read the pervius Heroclix post). There was also two more tweets on Twitter from Blaire. One was a reply to someone saying that she would be back in the USA in October and the second was that she had now been to Venice and is heading to Rome. Oh my mum would so love to go to Rome, she is really into her Roman history.

My 200 points Gothan City team
The next morning on Thursday. I rebuild and collected the 300 point team again as I had a bit of time to rethink the time. When I got in for a 12PM start, I was moaned at for not turning up for 11AM. It was the Jurk moaning. I finished work at 4PM and when I got home I collected the cards for figures that had special abilities and then cooked dinner. After I got back from Heroclix I started doing the writeup for it. I got to ther end of the second round before going to bed.

I managed to finish the write-up for my Heroclix post on Friday morning just before heading to work. I was down to work from 11AM to 4PM but ended up finishing at about 6PM. As I was not feeling well and was tired from two long days, all I realy did weas posted my Heroclix post and went to bed.

On Saturday I had battery problems with my BlackBerry again. Lucky I noticed it early in the morning and plugged it in the mains charger then plugging it into the computer. This meant I could not do any work on the week before’s log. At coffee Richard and Jake were late as Richard was giving someone a left to somewhere else and Darren never came as only just woke up at when we were meant to meet up. It looks like Jake might have pulled on last Saturday as Lizzy and him have been texting each other a lot during the week about meeting up. Had work from 12PM to 6:15PM and I manage to finished last week’s log during my lunch break. Fantastic! So when I got home I posted it. Richard was meant to coming over to mine to swap around the DVD’s he was borrowing. He left it too late in the day and we decided to do it on Sunday instead.

I really want this piece of kit, the Nyko Wii Party Station
The next day, Sunday, I awoke from dreaming about Blaire. I am not worried about her as I can tell with the couple of tweets that she has posted that she was safe but busy. I am however really missing not seeing her on line or hearing her voice. Never mind. I managed to finish off tidying Heroclix figures and did a little bit of tidying of my room. Richard came over in the evening. He was borrowing some of my anime series and wanted to swap them for the next volumes. While I was swapping the DVDs around, my mum was using the copier side of print to photo copy some stuff for work. However for some odd reason the printer kept getting paper jams a first. Richard helped my mum un-jam the paper jam. Then the printer stopped working at all. We plugged it, opened it up, but could not find any problems with it. As there was some repair guys working by where my mum works, we decided to take it in to them on Monday to have them have a look at it. After chatting for half an hour to an hour, Richard headed off as he was feeling tired. One of the things we talked about was planning another Wii party ever next Saturday or the Saturday after that. When Richard left, I did some work on the next Heroclix post as I wanted a break from the log and then I went to bed.

With that done, everything should be back to normal now. OK I cut out a couple of minor bits like my cold to speed up the write up, but there was not as much to write up this week. The only real plan for next week is met up with Richard some time during the week (may be on Tuesday). However, other than that there are no real plans yet for the week. Until next time, enjoy.
