haaaaa hard to update this blog ! kamisama more time, give me please ! I need it !
hehe just kiddin, here is little promo to start with :
Yeah ! This is a party ! (I feel the 「!」 today).
- Where : the Titio Club - near Avignon - France
- When : december 11, 2010
- What : Special birthday party by Stereofly Records.
This event is supported by Daiyume Music.
I will repost this one untill you fed up seeing it xP
Speaking of event, let's add another one :
This is the anual convention of the south-east of France.
Dates : february 25th to 27th, 2011.
France : http://www.japan-expo-sud.com/fr/
English : http://www.japan-expo-sud.com/en/
日本 : http://www.japan-expo-sud.com/jp/
Why the hell do I post something will happen in 3 months ?! Just the 1st of a long serie I project to follow. Those "Japan Expo Sud" are very good for one thing : atmosphere.
This convention is filled to all kind of people from heavy otaku to curious, at the end you have a cool ambiance where usual suckers (aka "you-cant-understand-i-am-otaku") are invisible. This is
something I highly appreciate.
What to expect ?
Usual stuff : anime, manga (I hope I'll find the next volume of that doujin I use to buy ), concert, fashion defile, martial art demo, asian culture booth, goodies, famous guest, COSPLAY (yeah in
big because whatever you say : Cosplay is GREAT !), etc...etc...
What do I expect ?
Generally I go in such events to find cheap stuff like figurines, manga, DVDs, goodies,... with a bit of knowledge and lots of patience and tons of luck you can find good stuff for a ridiculous
price. Big advantage is the size of this event : way smaller then the one in Paris and sometimes smaller is better (^_^)
well, well... I missed everything in 2010 (except the Japan Expo Sud 2010) I hope 2011 to be different.
(all pix above has been taken last year)
Video capture for Visual Novels
I was in need of a video capture software that could work with Visual Novels... I mean ALL Visual Novels !
My old Fraps refused to work with these games, Camstudio was not good for this then I tried several other products (tons of shitty soft that makes you register for nothing) and I finally found
one ! yeah !
I post bellow the test I made with Nanairo Kouro (made by Journey).
Yes, I took this scene because it's funny. By the way you see the result is not bad at all.
Software used is E.M. Free Game Capture. This a free software, REALLY free.
What free means nowadays : you can use it forever without any ads on your capture (praise them !) but you are limited in your sound quality. If you want a better sound = buy it.
I post bellow screens to explain how that (old but good) software works :
Pretty simple no ? (notice the funny stuff in the
background hehe yes, I made it on purpose for peeps with humour sense).
Game used for these screenshots is Sekajyo by Navel.
Well, if you were looking for something easy to use and works with ALL VNs for your blog, video, amv or whatever : this one is good.
2 things to know :
- rendering is a bit long
- available in english only
PS : no I have no links with this software company as I have no links ANY of the stuff I use to present (except Daiyume heh !).
Let's stay in video. I didnt have time to play but I watched/uploaded some things.
Kicking Horse Rhapsody 「キッキングホース★ラプソディ」 by Honey
This is the Opening. You will find the trial on the official website and the essential infos at VNDB.
I didnt try the demo myself then I wont add more.
Kagura Gensoutan ~Ayakashi no Hime~
神楽幻想譚～妖かしの姫～ by Debonosu.
Another one I didnt try. Infos at VNDB, official infos.
D.C. Dream X'mas
ダ・カーポ～ドリームクリスマス by Circus.
What ?! Yakumo is annoying with her Da Capo !!!! hala hala ! There are D.C. fans everywhere on earth and I didnt post the 1st promo video.... so I post the second xP
This is D.C. DX, infos at VNDB and PHAT official website with
tons and tons of things to see/read/dream.
Notice that Circus updated their website since my last post about D.C.DX. Otome Benchmark is now available directly on the main
page and DCDX downloads now feature all stuff (including the video above).
A little word about Mangagamer and their upcoming releases...mmm ok I redo : a little word about Mangagamer and THE game you will buy because it's one of the best ever (this is too much ? a bit
?) : Da Capo II in english.
They added more informations on their blog with something you will recognise if you into D.C.
What the heck this pic above is doing here ? Nothing, I just wanted to post it (it's from MM!).
Then as I said : I didnt play. Just watched anime, too tired to go deeper into magical world.
If you into MMORPG, you'll be glad to know that Iris Online global is now in Open Beta while JP server finally released the 2nd episode
(yeah they took their time but their was some probs.... fixed + a drop rate compensation to players). See pic bellow :
If you know Iris, you will recognise the zone (30+ pvp).
By the way my little Iselbeth is now a level 34 Knight and leveling takes ages.... so i didnt play xP
Yes this article is a mess of various things I saw around (title says all). There are tons of other stuff I shud speak but let's keep that for later if you want.
Next time I'll speak about Daiyume. yes this sounds boring but it wont !
