SAIBOGU by Shinda Saibo No Katamari

I am rarely impressed or excited about a death metal band, so this comes as a surprise after hearing Japan’s Shinda Saibo No Katamari! did I say that correctly? a 3 piece who in their own words play “Brutal Death based technical riffing with complex song structure but keeping super brutality.”. Nothing is further from the truth upon initial listening. Here we have a banquet of sounds that comes off as very organic and authentic. The drums hit hard and the riffs are fierce. And fuck the vocals are beautifully guttural and complete! This may be my take for the Death Metal release of 2019. My hats off to you.

Please if you have the opportunity check out their FACEBOOK, YOUTUBE and BANDCAMP.

2019 Co-operative multiplayer games with friends

One thing is for certain in this life, community and friendships are very valuable. That being said, a common interest usually keeps you together, in this case gaming. Today I am going to explore a few select titles that I find personally appealing, however have never played but am intrigued by the information presented from other web sites.

Remnant: From the Ashes

“Remnant: From the Ashes is a third-person survival action shooter set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by monstrous creatures. As one of the last remnants of humanity, you’ll set out alone or alongside up to two other players to face down hordes of deadly enemies and epic bosses, and try to carve a foothold, rebuild, and then retake what was lost.” -via steam, https://store.steampowered.com/app/617290/Remnant_From_the_Ashes/

Destiny 2

I thought it worth mentioning that I have no familiarity with this series.

“Set in a “mythic science fiction” world, the game features a multiplayer “shared-world” environment with elements of role-playing games. Like the original, activities in Destiny 2 are divided among player versus environment (PvE) and player versus player (PvP) game types. In addition to normal story missions, PvE features three-player “strikes” and six-player raids. A free roam patrol mode is also available for each planet and features public events as well as new activities not featured in the original.” -via wikipedia, https://store.steampowered.com/app/1085660/Destiny_2/

GOD EATER 3

Unfortunately a generic and unappealing anime-esque art style, this is of course personal opinion so please do not let it dissuade you. Looks to be an action rpg, with epic bosses and maybe dungeons for friends to venture through. https://store.steampowered.com/app/899440/GOD_EATER_3/

Space Engineers

” Space Engineers is a sandbox game about engineering, construction, exploration and survival in space and on planets. Players build space ships, space stations, planetary outposts of various sizes and uses, pilot ships and travel through space to explore planets and gather resources to survive.” -via steam, https://store.steampowered.com/app/244850/Space_Engineers/

This concludes my list of games. Apologies no images or eye catching material here. Please offer me suggestions and I will look into them. Regards.

Why you will never climb in League of Legends

To put it briefly, it’s a team game. League of Legends is a game where you play alongside other human beings, in all levels and skill based tiers. Therein lies the problem.

In theory there ranking system should be acceptable and beneficial for all players. Lets take for example their elo system. They have Iron – Challenger, the worst being Iron and best being Challenger. The game however does not limit an Iron player from playing in Challenger and vice versa, this is an extreme example, but a realistic scenario. You can buy smurf accounts of all elos and skill levels.

I am going to be speaking from a realistic and idealistic scenario. And that being my initial example of a team game. It’s easy to exploit the game for the uninitiated. And the game designers had this in mind. They make certain champions stronger in early, mid and late game. You can counter play, you can neglect responsibility of farming and playing your lane and deciding to exploit your strengths to disadvantage a player who is playing the game as it was intended.

Furthermore, you can play the game as it was intended and still find yourself at a loss because it is entirely too difficult for a person in Iron – Silver elo to carry a single game themselves. I believe later elo’s this is not the case.

So in summary, Riot games has it in mind that a person who is at as low of an elo as Iron to be able to single handed carry an entire match by themselves.

My message to Riot games is to address this reality, and determine lowest of elos to be at the highest of skill levels. Or I ask more experienced players to offer beneficial advice on how to carry a single game absent of a team.

In addition I intend on examining each specific detail to a single game and offer opportune advice as to expected intentions of your teammates, to maybe productively cooperate with one another.

DO NOT EVER ASSUME YOUR TEAMMATES KNOW WHAT YOU’RE THINKING.

All this being said, the game IS fun. However I do believe unless you’re at the skill level of Faker you need a duo partner or teammates that you can trust to really advance in Ranked games.

Pregablin for Anxiety treatment

I am writing today because my psychiatrist will not prescribe me Lyrica (pregablin) for my debilitating anxiety. Her reason for not prescribing me Pregablin as indicated by her interest in Medical Journals addressing Pregablin as a first line of medications for Anxiety disorders. I have listed references concerning this, and my findings are satisfactory if thoroughly investigated.

“Pregabalin lowered total Hamilton Rating Scale for Anxiety scores within 1 week and was effective against both somatic and psychic subcomponents.” – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22395254

“Available evidence suggests that pregabalin is effective and well tolerated in the treatment of GAD.” – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22395254

“Successful treatment of GAD with pregabalin versus placebo and active comparators has been reported in clinical trials.” – ttps://journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.1345/aph.1Q405

Additionally I was suggested to try Gabapentin as opposed to Pregablin. Any significant research will determine Pregablin more effective in it’s Pharmacology. As Pregablin is absorbed, metabolized and distributed more effectively than Gabapentin.

Pregablin is the successor to Gabapentin and is more effective. Both drugs are indicated as primary usage for Neuropathic Pain. Both drugs are essentially the same.

In conclusion I wish to be prescribed Pregablin for my anxiety, as opposed to Gabapentin. If there can be any credibility otherwise, I wish for a more thorough explanation.
