Something about this bloggie

Ok, I admit that I've failed somewhere before. But anyway welcome. Just a brief intro on what you should expect here:
1. Football. Not gonna post much of that any soon since season is over. :S
2. Anime, Games, etc. Just abt anything conceivable under the Japanese radar barring anything and everything Rule 34. Now that's illegal. Period. -.-;
3. Music. Everything to do with it is listed under the tab.
5. Unacceptable humour: Anything and everything is fair game here. As long as I don't get rounded up by the ISA. -.-'

The Known World=Fantasy world building in process. I: Used to be glossary, now devoted to random rambling; II: Character Concepts; III: Lore.
7. der Wolf=my Fictionpress account under the moniker Tsumujikaze no Soujutsu. A Ranger's Tale is hosted under this page. :)
8. New section now upped. Maybe I should also gun for upping A Ranger's Tale here since I do have this funny feeling that traffic coming to here is way more than whatever I'll get in FP.

Statement of intent: Everything said here is a figment of personal opinion, be it me or anybody commenting. I try to be responsible, but my parents=/=parents of the world.

@Druid of Luhn: Crap. Should have remembered far earlier to give you the credit for your CSS text box code. :(

A/N: But sadly, it seems that your CSS text box code has now been halved efficiency wise. :(

That most important note I should have added: Any images posted in this blog are NOT my own stuff. I got them from Google image search, I don't earn any shit by being a thief and liar. Those responsible for the pictures, rest assured that you all are great artists in your own regards. Sadly, we all know what limited space means in terms of posting.

Latest Note: Changed alignment for my page widgets due to my worry that I can't centre align the thing.

Note on A Ranger's Tale: In case any complaining fella wants to have a legal case with me, let this be known that A Ranger's Tale is rated M by default. I've upped the swearing and somewhat a bit on the dark/gritty factor. You all have been warned, let no little boy and girl enter the forbidden realm.

Latest on ART: A Ranger's Tale now starting to kick back in gear. But I really hate the insanely fluctuating climate here in S'pore.

P.S: Oh, and one more thing. Vid below is yet another ideal OP for A Ranger's Tale.

Final Fight=Far more badass than Ryu and co? Part 1: Cody

Note: The names/terms would be used in according to the Japanese context. b/c I really hate the way localization works in the worst case scenario.

Okay, this is NOT for trollage. Simply put, its all abt what I've discovered on all things Final Fight. First things first, trying to pinpoint Mike Haggar's capabilities is really tricky. Like yeah, he and Zangief are rivals, but that's all. Screw the ambiguity called Muscle Bomber. :S

Disclaimer! Anything called the canon sources isn't down to my efforts. Credit should go to Vasili and Tiamat who made the SF plot guide together with guys like Saiki as well.


Just a few statements of truth:

1. He's the one who knocked Belger out of the window in Final Fight 1. OP sequence of FF2 confirmed just as much.

2. Poison framing him for her crimes is speculative at best. Barring the inconceivable called Capcom stating Final Fight Revenge is canon, we can only know that Cody got thrown into jail due to picking up fights and owning wannabe-hobos by random.

3. It's triple confirmed. Donkey ages back as well. Cody CAN smash through a 50 cm thick concrete wall. This was the reason why he's able to jailbreak in his SSF4 intro.

4. Amazingly enough, Zero 3 was a case of dumb luck where Cody just slipped out due to a big-ass prison riot. Case in point: Wall got implicated. -.-'

5. If there's anything to go by from Juni's winning quote against him in Zero 3, he's pretty much of a... wild card I guess. Supposedly his fighting ability hinges greatly on his emotional state. The fact that he's always picking up fights for the thrill seems to reinforce this possibility. Of course given that he's living in Metro City ever since dunno-when, such a quality is a no-brainer in this type of criminal cesspit.

6. Its said that he CAN take hits ridiculously well.

7. He's the one who took down Abigail as well if there's anything to go from the Nintendo DS Final Fight One (Upon playing as Zero Cody. Which is outright absurd srsly since Zero 3 was like 1990 compared to Final Fight 1 taking place in 1987).

8. No talk on Final Fight Streetwise will be done here since we don't even know whether the storyline is legit or not. Yet another FFR clone so as to speak. -.-'

So now let's get onto that one thing: Metro City. How insane is this area? If there's anything to go by via Cody's winning quote against Fei Long, then quite obviously it's an outright hell.

Case in point: Cody only stated Fei Long will be eaten alive in Metro City; nothing was said on the power level.

Simply put, felony knows no honour. Of course he's not the only one messing around with Mad Gear. Guy and Haggar were present as well.

But still being able take down Abigail together with Belger soon afterwards=badass.

And apparently, cops don't like badass vigilantes b/c they can't arrest them bar dirty means. Case in point: Edi.E.

So now let's jump straight into SSF4 since this is the one that matters most. Simply put, out of all the characters' endings, Cody's was the only one that required a direct gimping of Seth (i.e. Guy has NO reason to bullshit anything and Cody affirmed it just as much). Interestingly enough, Blanka's ending required S.I.N to go bust as well. Yet, NO direct references were done in any way or form. Unless you all want to say the news media is reliable. Then I've got nothing to say. -.-'

Juri's ending only requires a beaten Seth while Vega's ending doesn't really make much of a sense since that will mean an outright retcon from his SF4 ending. Or MAYBE Juri's ending shouldn't be legit (Note: Juri was all alone with Seth in her ending while Vega wouldn't hesitate to kill her without a sweat in his ending. Again more canon bullshitting). Interestingly enough, given the timing of Rose's SF4 ending, it's impossible for Vega to incapacitate her first, then leaving off to deal with Seth (i.e. Guy would have bailed her out straightaway. Period). Simply put, nowhere in Vega's ending was Seth being shown getting owned whereas its vice-versa for Cody. Juri's ending required nobody else around while Guy's storyline was actually tied in together with that of Rose and Cody as well.

So how do I see things? Very simple: Cody's ending ---> Juri's ending ----> Blanka's ending (i.e. the aftermath which C.Viper might have a hand in the whole cover-up. Read: She's part of the CIA for crying out loud! Vega's part was just mere bullshitting.)

Potential shipping (bullshit)
