Disgaea DS

I got my copy of Disgaea DS just a few hour ago... without wasting more time, I immediately play the game.


The first 2 minutes on game... and the look on how the battle is.


First Impression: The opening is, same as the 1st Disgaea, which is just expected, since this is the remake of the first disgaea of PS2.
I'm a bit dissapointed because unlike the previous release, they don't insert the option to change the language into japanese. Normally i won't play this game since i already beat the PS2 one, but since Pleinair is coming out as playable character(I'm a fan of her), I will play this game until get bored again (hopefully, until I managed to beat Prinny Baal...). Oh, and I have my own rules on playing NIS's Title, that is, I will never use my main character at all (so yeah... leave it at level 1 without exp), I managed to do that with the other games(Disgaea2, Phantom Brave), I dunno if can do that with this one, in case Laharl are needed to have a certain level to unlock something.

Not bad so far...just have a nostalgic feeling of it. I also think that it may become a good time waster on my 1-week holiday. As for now, my top priority is to get Pleinair and to unlock anything that's not available in PS2 release, such as ending, weapon, etc.

Well now... Animonster do it again...

Animonster is an anime magazine in my country. What's wrong with them? and what relationship they have with touhou? Well, it's about their latest magazine (september '08 Release)

Costs about 3$... but i don't buy it... I rent them somewhere for 0.3$.. don't want to spend any money for this trash.
The place where i rent them won't be shown for safety reason


They include a bonus DVD with Wallpaper, Trailer, etc....



The mentioned DVD...


The problem lies within the DVD... They are using one of touhou's remix, "天空の花の都" (The Capital City of Flowers in the Sky), Remix of song with the same title from Perfect Cherry Blossom Stage 4, By Sepia from SJV-SC circle, in the album called DIVIT (thanks to Gunbazca in AOI for mentioning it, and he also ask funkies from pooshlmer about the what the song is).They Use it in their bonus DVD without even mentioning anything, not a single thing. There's no touhou, no ZUN, no Team Shanghai Alice, and of course, they don't give a credit at all to the maker. They Just use it without mentioning anything.
It's not the first time they are piracing songs and such. But since this time is touhou related, which is my main interest for now, i feel that i need to point it out.

One thing to mention, I believe everything published by Megindo (at least, Gamestation and Animonster) is rubbish and not even worth reading. For the case of gamestation, they just copy paste-ing data from gamefaqs for their walkthrough section, translating it to Indonesian, and give no damn credit for the maker, not even a mail stating that they use the walkthrough, claiming it's their work (I'm one of the victim some years ago). And yeah... at that time I already tried to contact their Customer Service Complaining about how they pirating my works, but they shut the phone immediately.

This kind of thing has been very common in Indonesia. Now, there are many TV Program here who's using BGM from game/anime as they please, with... of course, no credit. This kind of thing is one of the reason why Indonesia will never be able to do some advancement (I don't care about it anymore, though.... since it's really hopeless). That's it for today.

About Me: My Desktop

As title said... Here's my desktop look like.



Simple and there's nothing in it (except recycle bin)
I place the start menu bar above because i find it more comfortable than placing it below. On the bottom right there is a Rainmeter skin (Chronicle Skin(By Sensitiveknife),I modded it a bit). Right form start menu, there is a menu, like it said, connecting to all shortcut to my most used program,etc...). For the Windows theme itself, I used HmmXP (By: Fugacious)

About me: introduction

Ok, this is my first post on my first blog...
Nothing to fancy about it, this will likely be a blog talking about my daily rant and impression of things that happens to me.

About me:

My real name is Yugatha Ivanno (yeah... an odd name, do a simple google search and only find 1 other "yugatha" name). Also... Please by any mean call me Hourai, i hate to be called by my real name on the Internet as much as many of you do.
Currently Living in Indonesia and attending a college called iSTTS (institut Sains Terapan dan Teknologi Surabaya). Specifically, I'm attending it's Informatics Technology.
I have Interest in Anime, Game,and some other thing. For anime, I mainly watch Action and Drama (as of late, I don't watch anything because there's nothing good to watch). For game... I played a lot of things and enjoy them all, except sports game... For my favorite game now, it's the Touhou Series (for you who don't know what is this, i will make a post for this later...)

Well, that's it for now.
