Hello everyone, and today marks a special day on two significant occasions! One of them is Valentine's Day, quite obviously enough, but the other one happens to be exactly six years ago to this day that I started on this site here. Ever since then, I have a gallery loaded with a lot of my sketches, digitally-made pieces, and even literary works in the form of fanfictions (both carried over from my FF.net profile and exclusively published here). I will admit that most of my sketches and other works are varied in terms of quality (especially my earlier works), but I'm willing to improve the quality of my drawings down the line, and literary pieces are no exception either.
With all of that being said, here are the latest updates and developments so far!
-Unfortunately, as I had previously announced for quite a long while, there won't be a new deviantID presented in time for today. As much as I wanted to make it happen, I just don't feel the energy and time to commit to that for now. It will still happen, but as far as how much I've got on my plate personally, it won't happen soon enough.
-A new concept sketch for my Gundam SEED Reflex fanfic is now out, and it's all about the ZAFT mass-produced mobile suit that makes its appearance in the fic since PHASE-09! As always promised and delivered, there will be more concept sketches of all things related to GSR in the time being!
-PHASE-10 of Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Reflex
was released recently! The latest chapter can be read here
(dA: Part 1
| Part 2
-In addition to the current and ongoing fanfics right now, there are two more titles that will be released this year!
- Gundam SEED: The Fifth Freedom will be a story that is based off of the video game, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, but set in the Cosmic Era (more specifically, a few years after Destiny takes place). The main protagonist will be Shinn Asuka, who finds himself as a commander of ZAFT's covert unit primarily tasked with counter-terrorism operations. I won't give too much details about what the story will be about, but anyone who had played the aforementioned game will have a sense of what it is going to be anyway, and that some details in the story will be significantly different than in the game.
- Gundam SEED: Rainbow Six is pretty much what you think it would be, but there's a lot more to go with this. Based off of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six video game series, the story takes place also in the Cosmic Era (post-Destiny years as well), and revolves around the characters who are members of an international counter-terrorist unit called "Rainbow". There will also be some influences from the actual novel too.
-Of course, there will also be more side-stories and spin-offs of the original Gundam SEED Reflex that will come out in the long-term. Sequels to the Reflex fic are also not out of the question!
-The Second Assault DLC for Battlefield 4 is coming to the PC, PS4, and PS3 on the 18th this month! For those who have a Premium subscription, that DLC will arrive on that day; for those who are non-Premium, however, the DLC will come out on March 4 for those three platforms.
-Also, the third DLC for BF4--Naval Strike--will be out within next month! Naval Strike will have four new maps that will be emphasized on naval/aquatic combat, and will also include five new weapons, two new gadgets, a new vehicle, and ten new assignments. On top of that, there will be a new game mode, that surprisingly enough, will be based off of the classic "Titan" mode from 2142! That's right, Carrier Assault will be on the Naval Strike DLC!
-Knowing that I'm a few months late after the punch, I will still be doing a review on Battlefield 4's single-player campaign and multi-player! Look for the former very soon!
-Watching the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi makes me impressed about my country's performance in the games. 11 medals so far (4 golds, 5 silvers, and 2 bronze), and with about a week to go!
-The auto show has officially landed at my hometown, and I plan to go there to check out and see what cars are being presented at all venues!
And that's all it for the latest updates and developments on this special day! I can't believe it's been six years since I joined deviantART, but I plan to make it all worthwhile with more of the same of what I deliver. Stay tuned for more!
