Game Series: Dragon Warrior (NES) Episode 7

Garin’s Tomb, Staff of Rain, Stones of Sunlight, and levels, oh my! Here I gain the Silver Harp from Garin’s Tomb, and then obtain those other items from where else I need them. Once I obtain these items I gain some levels, reaching level 16 before I try my next stint.

Japanese Hiragana “T” and “D” Syllables

These are the first videos I’ve made in this manner, and we made these in a public place (Starbucks, shocker) so the sound is wonky. But, here is the video explaining the cards, and the “T” and “D” sounds of Japanese. Please pardon my pronunciation, I’m completely self-taught and so I probably do it a bit wrong.

Game Series: Dragon Warrior (NES) Episode 5

In this episode I head from Kol down south through the Marsh Cave to Rimuldar. There I explore the town and get some magic keys. Rimuldar is FULL of clues about how to get through the game, so it’s important we talk to everyone. Also, go around the town to the key shop. Lastly, we gather some gold and experience to buy some magic armor.

Now that we’re level 9 I venture off to get the Fighter’s Ring from the Marsh/Mountain Cave south of Garinham. I accomplish my mission, and then decide I’ll venture around the cave for a bit and gain some experience. Unfortunately, I die, but that doesn’t get me down!

Game Series: Dragon Warrior (NES) Episode 3

Hitting level 8 we venture off and to the north and east to the village of Kol. In Kol we learn a couple interesting things, including picking up a hidden item (that we knew of beforehand). It turns out we actually want the Large Shield from Garinham, but we also do want the Half Plat from Kol, both things we accomplish (as well as getting to level 9).

Game Series: Dragon Warrior (NES) Episode 1

The first game in the Dragon Warrior series came out for the NES in 1989. It’s still regarded as the great-grandfather of the console RPG genre. I have written a review of the game, but decided that I’d do a Let’s Play Classics play through of the game. This is episode 1, featuring the the first approximate hour of game play.

Japanese Hiragana “Vowels” (Pure) Sounds

The Japanese writing system is split into three parts. Two of these are syllabaries, and the last is a collection of symbols. Japanese doesn’t have an ‘alphabet’ so to speak, as it does a ‘syllabary’, or symbols associated with monosyllabic phonemes. There are two sets of symbols associated with these sounds, one called Hiragana which is used for native words, and one called Katakana which is used for borrowed words or emphasis.

A Going Away Party

So, I went to my friend’s going away party. He’s moving to Seattle to work at Amazon. Pretty neat. It was an interesting party because the only person we knew going in was my friend. I met him about ten years ago when he worked at GameOn at the mall. That store doesn’t exist anymore, but it was interesting. We actually met a few people, and it was nice. We talked about all sorts of things, and of course, Maus impressed with his huge body of knowledge as usual.

Loop Findr

There’s an awesome tool called Loop Findr. It takes a video and finds the most loop-able sections that could be put into animated gifs. I’m not sure if it allows you to also make custom GIFs (haven’t figured that out yet), but it does find some interesting things.
