Pamasko sa KAbarangay ni Kapitan.

Disyembre 24, 2011

Babala at Paglalahad: Hindi ako rehistradong botante, kaya wag niyo pong sabihin na “pinupulitika” ko lang siya. isa pa, yung angkan namin ay kilalang kaalyado nila. Ito ay isa lamang opinyon base sa nakikita ng aking mga mata. (Yun eh kung mababasa ito ng nakaka-kilala sa akin at alam ang mga pinagsasasabi ko na ang tsansa ay halos wala, baka sakali lang naman.)

Pasko na naman pala, dole out season na naman ulit mula kina Congressman, Mayor, Kapitan, etc. isang umaga, nagkakape ang akin nanay ng nakakita siya ng mga taong may bitbit na plastic na dumadaan sa harapan ng aming bahay ng bigla niyang sabihin “ay! may tiket nga pala ako galing barangay…” at aking sinilip ang nasabing tiket at nakita ko nga ang mga katagang “Pamasko sa KAbarangay ni Kapitan”

Ang unang pumasok sa isip ko ay, “teka, ano to? para san to? bakit?” at unti-unti ng namuo ang mga ideya (o conspiracy theory kung gusto mo dahil aaminin kong mahilig ako diyan) kaya ito ay pinasuyo sa isang bata para kunin ang nasabing bagay. pag dating, ang nakita ko ay dalawang delata, dalawang noodles, at dalawang kilong bigas. siguro ngayon ay iniisip niyo na nagrereklamo ako kung bakit konti lang, pero hindi.

Sa katunayan, sa aking opinyon ito ay isang malaking kabobohan sa parte ng aming barangay.

tignan nating mabuti, magkano ba ang binigay? sabihin natin 50 pesos ang isang delata, 100 pesos, dagdag natin ang dalawang paketeng noodles na 10 pesos ang isa, 120, at dalawang kilong bigas, sabihin nating 30 pesos ang isang kilo, equals 60 + 120 = 180 pesos.

180 pesos sa isang ticket, at kung aking matatandaan, number 125 ang nasabing ticket. kung tama ang pagkaka alam ko, ang populasyon ng aming barangay ayon sa wikipedia ay humigit kumulang 5000. ipagpalagay natin na sa isang pamilya ay merong sampung tao. (karamihan sa aming lugar ay CDE socio-economic class)kaya 5000 divided by 10 = 500. 500 x 180 = 90,000 pesos

Biruin mo yun?! 90,000 pesos? para sa isang barangay na laging sinsabi na walang pera/pondo dahil kalaban nila si incumbent mayor sa pulitika. (which is totoo naman)

Ewan ko talaga kung anong klaseng lohika meron ang mga pilipino, lalo na ng mga taong nakaupo sa pwesto. mas marami sanang magandang pinuntahan yang 90,000 pesos na yan, sabihin nating isang co-op na maaring kumita ang barangay pati na ang mga nasasakupan nito. at least, lalago ang 90,000. hindi katulad nung pinang dole out, pagktapos ng isa o dalawang araw lang wala na.

at yan ang mangyayari, kung walang vision ang mga namumuno sa ating lugar. walang pupuntahan, ang problema naman sa mga tao, eh masyadong complacent. dahil “kakampi” ok lang na walang nangyayari, pag kalaban naman ang nagsalita “pinupulitika” kaya ito ang nangyayari. mas maganda pa siguro, bawat isang bahay sa pilipinas ay magiging sariling bansa niya. kasi ganun naman nangyayari eh, kanya kanya lahat ng tao. walang pagkakaisa, lahat ng tao sa paligid mo hindi mo mapagkatiwalaan.

malapit na pala akong mag 500 words sa mga walang ka kwenta kwentang pinagsasabi ko, kaya titigilan ko na.

P.S.
nung huling barangay election dito sa lugar namin, kahit na maging botante ako, wala akong iboboto. dahil lahat ng tumakbo dito sa amin sa aking palagay ay wala namang kakayahang gampanan ang kanilang mga trabaho.

Why Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is FAIL.

Disyembre 15, 2011

Disclaimer: this is a fanboy rant, and I guess this photo is a proof. (I also have Metal Gear Solid Integral for PS1, but a friend borrowed it since last year and haven’t returned it since then.)

so let’s start, but before all that, I’ll say the positive aspect of the new title first.

It’s not Metal Gear Solid. At least, people can argue “that’s not canon!” or something like that.

But I think it would have been better since they already rebooted it to just create a new character on a far-far away place, maybe something like alternate universe or something, but no, they used Raiden then placed the story AFTER MGS4. so that’s where my first issue lies.

I don’t even know how to start this one (may brain is bombarded with thoughts after thoughts). but the title was Revengeance, so presumably Rose and his child got killed or kidnapped then he’s taking vengeance. cool, great. but wait, what’s with those Gekko? who’s controlling it? Isn’t the connection to JD has already been severed because of the FOXALIVE? so the AI have found a way to get around it? so how will it go now? they’ll sever it again, then the AI will found a way to get around it forever and ever? or they will just destroy it and the world will be in chaos? Also why in hell does this Raiden look a like throw Metal Gear Ray using only his hands?!

That brings me to the second point, the overall feel of the game has completely changed, and in our local language it has become “kenkoy” I can’t think of an English word equivalent, so I’ll leave it at that. (besides, I believe I don’t have any readers anyway)

So, let’s try to compare the two trailers, MGS:Rising and Revengeance.

MGS:Rising

Revengeance

See? I’m not really good with words, but the Revengeance feels so… I don’t know, cartoony perhaps? definitely because of the game engine.

So there you go, my random blabber about revengeance.

so there you go, as I have said earlier, I am writing this as a fanboy. good thing it’s not part of the MGS series, but whether it is a good decision to reboot it and still release it rather than just announcing it was a dead game, only time can tell.

P.S.
that concept of Kojima using the Boss and the Cobra Unit on the Invasion of Normandy was a good one (I would love to see this become a reality). Also, I guess Kojima is only doing this game just for the sake of doing it, not because he really liked it. think about it for a minute, he left the whole thing to his so-called “new generation” staff and focused on Peace Walker. I mean, there is no enthusiasm in it. but that’s just me.

P.P.S.
The truth is, I am not that excited since MGS:Rising was announced, I’m only on 25% excited mode, so I don’t even read news about it and never knew that it was already almost 2 years since the last E3 trailer. but now that this has happened? well, I’ll just have to wait and see.
