Crafting a Lostbelt in the 4th Moon

In these troubled times, humour never escapes the wonderful minds of the Japanese ACG culture, with many strange and out of this world announcements occured as soon as the clock strikes 0000 hours, signifying the start of the April Fools’ Day.

After the Dragon Quest spoof from last year, DW yet again offered a separate app on  the1st of April, allowing Masters of FGO to indulge themselves at a fun block building/busting shenanigan.

Unlike previous years, this special app, available to both the Android and iOS, will last until the 5th of April, breaking its own tradition of only available for the day itself! XDc

Delayed Season of Another Chaldean Love

It’s that time of the year again! Chaldea is in a state of emergency once more as the female Servants gathered around the canteen block in hopes to borrow the kitchen for their chocolate production, much to the dismay of a certain red-clothed chef.

While trying to come up with a high-quality recipe for mass production together with several other Servants, Lady Murasaki together with the Master accidentally transported ray-shifted to yet another interesting situation, to no one’s surprise…

Along came the new Valentine’s Servant for the year, a super genki and bubbly Gal with a unique penchant for uplifting the craziness factor of an already weird and somewhat fun event.

Real Life Level-Up and a Squeaky New Year

A boar-ing Terran year finally reached its peak, along came a squeaky Metal Rodent scuffling its way for another Zodiac cycle…

A Grand Quest in the 4th Moon

After the AR shooter spoof from last year, DW once again upped their antics this 1st of April by releasing yet another mini game or sort, this time in the form of a Dragon Quest/Final Fantasy like JRPG, complete with retro sprite graphics and 8-bit music.

Another Season of Chaldean Love

Once again, the designated heart-throbbing day full of chocolates, blushes and gifts is finally upon the excited Chaldea.

Servants and staff alike are all busy preparing their Valentine’s present(s) for their special someone…

Screenshot_2019-02-06-18-01-05-008_com.aniplex.fategrandorder

However, an unexpected disaster happens! All the chocolate ingredients suddenly disappears! 

This of course created uproars amongst the ladies of Chaldea, how are they going to convey their feelings now!?

Screenshot_2019-02-06-18-02-23-233_com.aniplex.fategrandorder

Amongst the mystery is the beautiful custodian of the recently opened library of Chaldea. According to her, a cursed book suddenly escaped from her grasp, creating this panic event… 

Such is the premise of this year’s Valentine’s Event in Fate/Grand Order, the mobage I’ve played since its release three and a half years back.

Flourishing a Boar-ing Year Ahead

With the Terran canine howling its final reign of the year, along comes the Terran swine stuffing the next with fulfilling fortune.

This year, we celebrate the Year of the Pig. Or Boar if you’re offended with the former.

Speaking about pigs, of course our Caster of Okeanos won’t hesitate to enjoy the occasion with her horde of cute swine, and a banquet of a party.

Just beware of her offerings of Kykeon…

Levelling Up in Real Life Again

Oh, it’s that time of the year again… Yet another level up fanfare chiming up in my head… ^^;

Today falls on another working day, but luckily it’s the last day of the week so I can enjoy the brief rest for the next 2 days…

Ahhhh the life of a working adult. orz

That’s what he said! :P

Many thanks to all the congratulatory messages from all over my social networks, which include Twitter, Facebook and other platforms. I appreciated your remembering of my day of birth… ^_^

A Summer Festival for Servants!

At the end of last month, the ever popular gacha mobage Fate/Grand Order celebrated its 3rd anniversary, throwing lots and lots of goodies (And a huge stash of Saint Quartzes woohoo!) and various anime series/movie announcements to the eager Masters all over the world.

Immediately after that, we’ve entered a new summer event that will last until the end of the month, featuring several highly sought after swimsuit Servants for Masters to deplete their reserves of Saint Quartz stashes in order for a less than 1% chance of hitting that SSR they wanted to roll for…

Screenshot_2018-08-09-19-07-18-829_com.aniplex.fategrandorder

This new Summer singularity is the result of none other than our favourite little devilish kouhai from Fate/Extra CCC, the super A.I. BB-chan!

In a remote investigation/vacation mission to check on a possible reading of a Foreigner’s signal at the Hawaiian islands, we were drawn in and locked within the Groundhog Day-esque singularity where we’ll need to repeat a full week on the Hawaiian island over and over again.

A Grand Lie in Order of Fateful April

Entering the 1st day of the fourth month of the year, once again various individuals and communities trying hard on their annual pranking.

Ever since a few hours back, Japan’s many websites and social medias have been cluttered with a wave of crazy and creative announcements and stuff, taking on the lies in this April. www

Coming back with a vengeance, of course Fate/Grand Order having its own fun with the day.

Just like last year’s, a special app can be downloaded for some mini gaming fun, available to both the Android and iOSXDc

“福”从天降

As the fiery rooster makes its exit, the Terran canine hounding towards a new lunatic year!

And a very happy Lunar New Year greeting from everyone’s favourite Rider, Astolfo!

Screenshot_2018-02-14-06-40-35-459_com.aniplex.fategrandorder

For the uninitiated and those unfamiliar with the language, in the Chinese Fate community, Astolfo is given a pet name and most affectionately referred to as 阿福. The character 福 itself means good fortune. The term 福从天降 from the post title means “fortune falls from the sky” literally, which is translated as “may good fortune be blessed upon thee”.

Thus the pun with the trap above. XDc

A Season of Chaldean Love

A heart-throbbing celebration of the day of romantic rendezvous, a very Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!

Once again due to busy RL schedules, I’ve prepared nothing for this year’s blog entry… orz

However, I do have lots of fun for the past two weeks on Fate/Grand Order’s very own Valentine’s event!

Levelling Up in Real Life

Another year, yet another digit to my life span. The more ancient we get, the less we do to celebrate the day we came to this world… orz

Especially when it falls on a working day when I still had to embrace the pressure and tackling hoards of real-life jobs… ^^;

Screenshot_2018-01-16-19-19-35-425_com.aniplex.fategrandorder

But alas, amidst the busy schedule and headaches, I am still receiving congratulatory messages throughout my social networks, as well as from within the games I played. XDc

Many thanks for the well wishes from those who did on Facebook, Twitter and such. You know who you are… <3

Virtual Experience with a Grand Order

Virtual Reality, more commonly abbreviated as VR, have come a long way since its first conception during the end of the 20th century.

Gaining the much-needed push in the last few years via the rise of the likes of Oculus Rift, HTC Vive as well as Sony PSVR, the programmes and applications catered towards them are still pretty much at their infancy at best unfortunately.

Nevertheless, we do get to experience some incredible stuff using these Head Mount Displays, at a much more affordable price when compared to what they offered back in the last millennium.

FGO_VR_Feat_Mash_Kyrielight

Celebrating the success of their Android/iOS smart phone RPG game Fate/Grand Order, the company announced the making of a VR experience of the game itself back in the middle of the year, featuring the main character of the game itself, Mash Kyrielight, your in-game lovely kouhai.

After a few public testing at various venues around Japan within the months, Fate/Grand Order VR Feat. Mash Kyrielight has finally been released onto PlayStation Network a few days back as a free download for those with a JP PSN account.

B– B– CHAN-NERUUUU~~~!!!! <3 

After a long pre-event for the past half a moon, resulting me a Nero Bride and a couple of Gilgamesh from the summon pool, the true Fate/Extra CCC x Fate/Grand Order collab event has finally been unleashed!

Ordering a Grand Giveaway

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve started playing the mobage Fate/Grand Order religiously, ever since its release at the end of July, 2015…

Over the course of the period, I’ve obtained many sub accounts aside from my main (Either through trading with other Masters or buying one from elsewhere), and too switched many times between one another, until I’ve finally landed on this particular account that I’ve embraced as my primary one. 

Screenshot_2017-04-19-21-33-50-855_com.aniplex.fategrandorder

The account was originally a gift from a fellow Master, which I’ve kept as a sub for some time to accumulate Quartz Crystals which are used to summon Servants and Craft Essences. I’ve promoted it into my current main after managing to summon several Servants that took my interest, aside the few that were already in there.

However it wasn’t until the start of this year that I’ve finally cast aside my freemium status to become… a whale, so to speak.
