how to git gud at rhythm games

1. start with easy/normal difficulty and work your way to hard/extreme

2. be caught off-guard by the gap in difficulty between easier difficulties and max

3. play the same song on repeatedly on max difficulty for months

4. ragequit several dozen times until all emotion leaves your soul

5. pick up the game again a few months later and play the same song repeatedly again but this time in stonefaced silence as the notes burn their way into your muscle memory

6. go into a trance-like state and develop the ability to see a few milliseconds into the future

7. beat every song on all difficulties with Perfect rank with the fine motor skill and lightning reflexes of a scifi-action movie hackerman

Things from Samus returns that I want them to keep for any theoretical future 2d metroid games

1)late game use for early abilities. Seriously was super happy that 2 late game bosses actually used the spiderball and grapple beam. Both of those become pointless after you get the space jump in their original games.

2)melee counter I loved it, made Samus feel incredibly cool.

3)living backgrounds, so many areas in samus returns felt incredible when you see all this wildlife moving around.

4) stupid me forgot about 360° aiming, yeah bring that back too.

5)teleport station if it also means huge maps, like I loved how big samus returns felt and backtracking was never an issue cause of the teleport stations.

I was tagged by @castiellover and @savin-people-fucking-cas thank you so much i love these games

1. Castiel and Supernatural

I can’t remember myself being so obsessed with a show and a character so much as i am with Supernatural and Castiel. Supernatural changed my life in so many ways and showed me the best family that ever existed in a tv show with so many wonderful people and Castiel is the reason i got to know spn fandom in the first place,  i care deeply about him and i get really angry when writers treat him badly.

anonymous asked:

Hi there ! I need some help about leaning kanji. I'm not sure how to start. Do I learn by radicals if I do can you direct to some books or a website that will help me with that method. Or do I just learn through vocabulary. I'm a bit overwhelmed since it's so much. Can you recommend a method to learn kanji ?

Hello! Hmm… First you need to know the reason as to why you want to learn kanji. Since the method will be different depending on your purpose. 


They are more complicated than the Chinese versions since it has more than one way to read it (kun-yomi/ on-yomi) . And it also have more than one meaning. But you can think of it this way…

Learning kanji is like being introduced to a new friend. Differentiate similar shapes of kanjis, is similar to differentiate your twin friends.

And to know how to read one kanji when it’s being combined with another kanji, is like learning someone’s nickname within a specific circle of friend! John is called Johnnie when he’s with his girl, but may be called Jo by his buddies.

So how do you able to memorize them? It’s by exposing yourself to them as much as possible. You won’t remember much about somebody you rarely meet. But you will instantly recognize your best buddies walking gesture even from far right! °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°

So basically, best method to acquire kanji is by using them by reading them in a sentence. Keep exposing yourself to a specific kanji until you mastered it. 

Now to answer your questions:


Purpose: Enjoying Japanese books/ mangas/ games

1. Follow the curriculum of JLPT material from N5 to N3 (including vocabulary & grammar). Since even if you master hundreds of kanji, you will not be able to understand the language without learning verb conjugation, particles, and grammar patterns.
2. Learn the kanji through vocabulary, and create mnemonics for it’s shape & reading. Don’t worry about official radicals, you just need to be able distinguished the kanji from other similar shape. You can even make your own version of radicals! Call it a christmas tree or folding chair, anything that works for you!
3. After finishing N3 materials, start expanding your vocabulary by reading simple Japanese books/mangas/blogs.

If this is the very first time you want to acquire Japanese, check out our blog’s lessons index . We try to create JLPT based lessons from the very basics. It’s currently not much but we’ll keep adding more materials. We hope it will help you to learn Japanese easier~


Purpose: Cramming for a JLPT test, which doesn’t require you to write the kanji

1. List all kanjis that will be reviewed.
2. Create mnemonics for each kanji you have problem with, to help you remember the shape & spelling (like the one you found in this blog).
3. Expose yourself to the kanji as much as you can in a sentence (not as single kanji quiz).

Find Japanese example in online dictionary such as Tangorin

First try to read them with the furigana on top, then try to hide the furigana later on. A good amount would be 10 sentence, and then move on to next kanji. Don’t cram to hard, get a rest for every 1 - 2 hours of cramming.


Purpose: Cramming for KANJI school test which require you to write the kanji and fully mastered the reading / meaning of a single KANJI

To tell you the truth, we believe that this is not an effective method to learn kanji if your purpose to learn is to understand Japanese. The best way to acquire kanjis is by using it (reading).

One kanji have more than one way of spelling and meaning when they’re being used in a sentence or combined with another kanji. To learn just the kanji without it’s proper use in a sentence will be very ineffective since your brain won’t treat it as something useful and will get rid of it as soon as you finished the test/study. It’s similar as how you memorise dates for history test.

In any case, this is the best method for this purpose:

1. List all the kanjis that will be reviewed in the test.
2. Create mnemonics for all of it’s meaning & reading (do it only for kanji which troubles you)
3. For complex kanji, check out its OFFICIAL RADICALS from dictionary apps, and create mnemonics of the shape.

• List of official radicals

4. Write it out a lot of times (keep remembering the official radicals while writing since you will need the radicals later on for another kanji). Take a rest every 1 - 2 hours of cramming.


Happy learning!

Let the Games Begin:: Bethany and Megan

Since Bethany’s been here, she hasn’t really done much but unpack, eat and sleep. She was excited to be hanging out with Megan, and not only because she was a huge fan of her and Liz. She didn’t realize how many cool celebrities would be here. She put on her white long-sleeved sweater, black skinny jeans and her black and white converse. She curled her hair and stuck a white bow in the back. She applied her makeup and headed out the door. She texted Megan: “R u there yet? I’m on my wayyy:)”. She walked over to the game room and played PackMan as she waited for her friend to arrive.

Ten Video Game Characters I Would Die For  → Ezio Auditore Da Firenze 

“When I was a young man, I had liberty, but I did not see it. I had time, but I did not know it. And I had love, but I did not feel it. Many decades would pass before I understood the meaning of all three. Now, in the twilight of my life, misunderstanding has passed into contentment. Love, liberty, and time, once so disposable, are the fuels that drive me forward. And love, most especially mio caro (my dear), for you, our children, our brothers and sisters, and for the vast and wonderful world that gave us life and keeps us guessing. Endless affection Mia Sofia.”

“Some call our realm a world of shadows, but that makes it sound unpleasant…The twilight there holds a serene beauty…You have seen it yourself as the sun sets on this world. Bathed in that light, all people were pure and gentle…But things changed once that foul power pervaded the world….“
