Today’s Theme: What Item would I want to be real?

Another huge defining aspect of the series is the items. Obviously some are real like the bow and arrow and bombs. Others are very imaginative. Today I’m going to tell you which I would want to be real.

So what Item would I choose: Lens of Truth.

This really is a hard decision. There’s so many cool magic items that would be so legit to have in our world and plus the hookshot would be awesome to carry around. It could turn you into Spiderman! But the Lens of Truth definitely has one of the cooler abilities. I’m just not entirely sure how I’d apply it in real life. It’d be cool if it could see when people are lying or some kind of magical and mysterious effect like that. I’m not sure how many optical illusion corridors exist in our world, but I’d be prepared for them!

Really, there’s a ton of great items, it’s hard to pick just one.

Leave your favorite in the comment section!

Thanks for the taking the time to read this!

Today’s Theme: Where would I want to live in the Zelda Universe

So, if I we’re link and I finally decided to hang up the hero’s sword and that fashionable green tunic for the last time, where would I settle down? If you remember a few days back, I said the npc’s were not that immersive. The towns, on the other hand, are rather great. I love most of the towns in the Zelda Universe. We’ve been to a lot.

So where would I want to retire: Kakariko Village

Kakarito Village

Just look at it!

It’s been here since Link To The Past, and it’s been pretty good to us. My first memories of this town are from Ocarina of Time. The town theme is timeless. The carpenters are hilarious with all their weird sounds. And you learn the song of storms here!

As much as I remember it being really peaceful and enjoyable, I’m remembering how weird and eerie the village was too.

For starters, the graveyard. Dampe is a very memorable character. He is always stocking the graveyard with his shovel. Not to mention, when he passes away when you move forward in time was really sad to me. But, we did however get the Hookshot, a very cool item.

Next on the eerie list. The skulltula house. The family placed under a curse. The lighting helps set the tone. Dont even get me started on the creepy sounds and dancing.

There’s also the witch’s potion shop. Witches are pretty inherently creepy.

Lastly, the well. The well man. It’s not even a hard part, but the area is so creepy. The fact that you cant truly see the creatures and corridors makes it so I would not go down there if it was me.

But all that aside. It’s a quick horse ride to the Zora’s domain, The Hyrule castle, and the beach(lake)! Not to mention, Death Mountain is your backyard.

Okay, so honestly, it’s a pretty creepy place, but the theme music make’s it very relaxing, and the renovations suggest it’s on the rise! Also, the Kakriko village in A Link To The Past is super sweet, but I have not been there recently enough to recall details.

Anyway, where would you like to like town wise?

100th Post

Today were not doing  Daily Post Challenge. Instead, I’m making a simple post. This will be my 100th post on DaHubbz.

This channel is not huge in any sense of the word, however, the regulars that have flocked to my post have been truly great.

Some people comment.
Some people give likes.
Some people simply read.

But regardless that means a lot to me.

I started back in June(July?) with the sole intent of meeting people to chat about Pokemon and Anime. And that’s what I’ve done. I look forward to logging in every day to chat with cool people.

January was our biggest month. Post everyday was challenging with school, but I’m glad I stuck with it.

I thought that would be the biggest thing I did on this account, but I have a project coming up that I hope you guys will enjoy.

I’m still learning to be a good blogger. I’m still developing my own personality and style. I’m still working on networking and meeting new people.(I rarely comment on stuff. I gotta change that this year).

Anyway, I hope you guys have enjoyed the content so far. I’m open to reviewing any anime or manga. Follow me on here and get involved with the content. Follow me on twitter and let’s chat.

Here’s to a good year and 100 more post. Thanks to everyone who motivated me to keep blogging

As always, thanks for reading!

Daily Blog Challenge:February 4th

Today’s Theme: My favorite race.

I like the Legend of Zelda has used some unique-ish races in it’s game. The dekus are an interesting plant based life form. The Zoras are fish people. Lastly, the Gorons are mountain dwellers. Oh, and the two human races, Hylians and Sheikahs. Those there are the main, though they’re not the only ones

So which is my favorite: Zoras.

The dekus are beautiful and very peaceful(For the most part). Though, they’ve never struck me as interesting. They do become somewhat of an interest in Windwaker due to a more reoccurring nature of the race within that game. Gorons are quite funny and their civilizations may be up there in the most fun to adventure in. They give personality to Death Mountain in Ocarina of Time. However, Zoros are the race I think is the most interesting throughout the whole the series.

They got their start as River Zoras in the original game. They were villains and albeit very annoying and flat villains, but later on they became an interesting part of the Zelda mythos.  In some of the old games, they granted Link the ability to swim or better maneuvering in water. Not to mention, from the Zora’s Domain to the the Great Bay, they always have some of the prettiest homelands in the series. I remember being captivated by the Zora ‘s Domain in Ocarina of Time. Their fancy hierarchy and the Jabu-Jabu fish just made them a fun clan to learn about.

So whose your favorite race in The Legend of Zelda universe?

Thanks for talking the time to read this!

Today’s Theme: Which game had the best supporting cast?

As much as I love the Zelda series, their NPC’s just feel flat most of the time. I mean the regulars are solid, but I just do not get immersed with the npc like in Fallout per se. One game I do feel is different. One game I think got the NPC’s right.

So which game is it: Windwaker

windwaker cast

Yes. I feel Windwaker had the best supporting cast. I suppose you could make an argument for Majora’s mask. After all, you see all these people in their finally days! But I have to give the nod to Windwaker. Windwaker is much more vibrant and I think that goes well with the characters. From the pirates, to the dekus, to the rito’s.  The characters brought out the best of their island, and the islands brought out the best in their inhabitants. It’s this special relationship that I think that gives it the advantage.

Daily Blog Challenge: February 2nd

Today marks the first daily blog of February! This months theme is Legend of Zelda based. So all questions will be about LoZ

Today’s Theme: My First Experience Will The Legend of Zelda

My first time with the LoZ franchise was Ocarina of Time. This is probably common for early to mid 90’s kid. Originally I was watching my uncle teach my cousin how to play. It was at the Lon Lon ranch. They had just learned Epona’s song. I do not know what it was exactly. I never really played games as much as I did watch them. I watched my dad and mom play games before bed a lot. This was the first game I saw someone play and thought “Oh, man. I have to learn to play this game. Like right now.” My memory is not the best, so I never remember which I played first: Pokemon Red or LoZ.

Now, I’ve played every home console one except Skyward Sword because it required motion plus, which I did not have at the time sadly.

So what was your first experience with the Legend of Zelda? Were you throwing it back on the NES or rocking the new Wii titles? Or somewhere in the middle?

Thanks for taking the time to read this!

Check back tomorrow for more updates!

Magic Monday: Oath of the Gatewatch First Impression

Oath of the Gatewatch is Wizard’s latest installment in their addictive tcg Magic: The Gathering.

To me, BFZ was, for the most part, disappointing. I had high hope for the allies, but the best they could do was a gimmick Sac deck. Now, Gideon did provide some umph, some 60 dollar umph.

I remained spoiler free and last week my girlfriend and I bought two of the pre-constructed decks.

I got myself concerted efforts. A green/white deck that relied on the new Mechanic Support.

Support reads “As this card enters the battlefield, Put a +1+1 on up to X creatures. Needless to say I love this mechanic. I’m a green player so getting to make my creatures bigger each turn worked wonders for me.

This was my promo card

Elf Knight

He’s pretty sweet. The rest of the deck felt weird, but effective. It was filled mostly with white weenies and some okay fliers. I was able to beef them up to form a giant massive flying army. I was winning every game until I helped her tweak her deck to be a little better suited(I gave her some reach creatures and plummets to help disrupt my board presence.)

Her deck was the vicious cycle deck. Its a green/black deck that wants to sacrifice creatures to gain advantages. It’s an okay deck, but for whatever reason she couldnt get it going until my army had already amounted. To combat this we gave her some plummets and other forms of removal like ultimate price. After that, she won the next four. We filled the deck with scion token producers and she sac’d them to activate bone splinters, so I never had a board presence. But hey, she was enjoying it!

All in all, I barely feel like these decks gave us a taste of OGW. Our deckes were filled with a bunch more BFZ cards than I thought they would have. And I feel as if her deck didnt seem to redefine standard as much as it was just a rehash of the aristocrats style of play.

I love the support mechanic and I’m definitely interested in building around it. The big draw back is it runs tiny creatures and at times(If I fell behind) support felt like a dead mechanic. You cannot support yourself so if there’s nothing on the field, Gladeheart Cavalry’s support is wasted. I still have more mechanics to fool with so I’m interested in seeing what else this expansion set has in store.

Have you guys got a chance to get your hands on any OGW cards/deck yet?

Today’s Theme: Thoughts on Chandelure being added to Pokken

For starters, if you havent read my “What 5 pokemon’s should be added to Pokken” already, go do so. *End of shameless plugging*

Chandelure is the latest pokemon added to the highly anticipated Tekken style pokemon game, Pokken. With it’s gameplay trailer dropping today: Here’s my thoughts.

If you haven’t seen the video already, check it out here Chandelure Announcement Video on crunchy roll.

For starters, I do not like that they choose Chandelure. Nothing against it, but we already have Gengar. Plus, if we had to go with another Ghost type, I would much whether want to get Rotom. Rotom could change types to help him get a boost on his opponent and have access to more moves.

But, Chandelure is what we’re given, so lets roll with it.

Chandelure

Right of the bat, for who Chandelure is and as much as I am hating on it, I still like what they’ve done with it. It looks like it has a nice move pool and cool animations. I’m torn on the cry though. It’s creepy, but at the same time sounds like a kid whine. Maybe it’ll grow on me over time. I do actually enjoy that Chandelure is a more an out there choice. The other character’s are usual suspects, so seeing Chandelure’s face here is refreshing.

However, both fire and ghost are represented while a handful of types are not. I’m hoping Chandelure is not the last reveal or at least get some DLC to help cover other types.

Either way, Chandelure looks to spice things up and I appreciate that nonetheless.

So what are your guys thought on Chandelure joining the fight?

Thanks for taking the time to read this!

Tomorrow I have to decide if February is getting a “daily blog” or some other format. You guys can comment on how we handle February as well.

-Daily Blog as well as top fives, anime reviews, manga review.
-Just life updates for important stuff as well as Top fives, anime reviews, manga reviews

Top Five Type Pairings That Need To Happen

Volcanion was released a few weeks ago becoming the first ever Water/Fire. With the addition of Fairy, the type combos now seem endless. Here’s a list of Top Five Pokemon Pairing that need to Happen Nintendo!

#5 Ice/Bug- And who said bugs could only grow in forests? I must admit, I don’t know how well this pokemon would preform but I love the concept. Creepy little bugs crawling all over the south pole. I just imagine them looking horrifying. They do not really compliment each other’s weaknesses too well. Ice handles bug’s weakness to flying though.

#4- Bug/Fairy- I might be the only person here who wants to see this come to life, but that is okay. Most of their pairings are pretty typical. Seems every generation has a Bug/Poison, Bug/Flying, Poison/Grass. I get excited for the odd ball typing like Bug/Electric. Seeing this typing in the future will add some spice to the game.

#3 Psychic/Poison-This typing seems too dreamy to ever come true.  I like poisons but with this typing it would give them that heavy hitter it needs. The special attack and speed would be there. Poison could give it a bit more of physical side and allow for some mix sweepers.

#2 Electric/Fighting- This one seems like a cool concept. I imagine it being super hyper and feisty. It would always be looking for a fight. Having fighting would help him against steel pokemons. Also, being electric would easily take care of fighting’s weakness to flying. Plus, I’ve seen Pikachu with boxing gloves on too many times to not want this happen!
Pikachu with gloves

#1 Grass/Fire- Grass pokemon’s thrive in sunlight. Think about it. Chlorophyll, solar powered, etc. Fire pokemons love sunlight too. It would increase their attack by 50%. So imagine a 50% stronger fire blast and being able to cast solar beam in one turn. Being grass negates the weakness to water and ground. Being Fire negates it’s weakness to fire, ice, and bug.

What are some combos you’d like to see? let me know!

Thanks for taking the time to read this!

Check back tomorrow for the last day of January!

 

 

My Life as a Teacher 1/30/16 and Daily Blog Update

So, yesterday I did my first day of subbing. It was not bad at all. Just really, really boring. The teacher I subbed left the students 5 work sheets to do over the course of the hour and a half class. Only the students had already done 3, and they knocked the other two out within 20-30 minutes. This resulted in a boring but easy day. I let the students speak quietly among themselves or listen to music or play games on their phone. It was a Friday and everyone was looking forward to weekend like they were Rebecca Black in that joint. I was already offered to sub again Monday I just have to confirm it.

Right when I got off, my girlfriend and I began babysitting until 12:30am. After that I had homework to do. This is why no Daily Blog went up yesterday. I passed out after homework. I’ll try to do two today to make up for it.

I subbed 10th grade biology for one block and 11th grade U.S. History. My spot Monday would be English as long as it’s still open
