JUBEAT



a new arcade has arrived here in kk.. and it's known as JUBEAT


what is Jubeat?

Jubeat (ユビート Yubīto?) is a series of arcade music video games developed by Konami Computer Entertainment Japan, and is a part of Konami's Bemani line of music video games. The series uses an arrangement of 16 buttons in a 4x4 grid for gameplay, a grid also used for the displaying of cues and part of the user interface.The game went on several location tests in Asia since December 2007, and was released on July 24, 2008.[1] in Japan, and December in Hong Kong and Macau. Two attempts to localize the game for the United States market have been made since August 2008, including UBeat, a variant of the first version, and Jukebeat in 2009, a variant based on Jubeat Ripples.

Gameplay

The basic gameplay of the series is similar to Nintendo DS music games such as Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan and Elite Beat Agents and can be considered to be similar to Whac-A-Mole. Animated explosions or other animations, called "markers", that can be chosen at the song select screen are shown within the panels synced to a track of the player's choosing; when they reach a "hot point", which is dependent on the marker chosen, the player must tap the corresponding screen to score points. Taps can be judged as either Perfect, いい感じ (Good), 早い (Fast), or 遅い (Slow). 3 difficulties (Basic, Advanced, and Extreme) are offered for each song. As with other Konami games, an e-Amusement card can be used to save statistics and a player ranking, and can also be used to access unlockable songs. Single player and linked multiplayer modes with multiple cabinets are also offered

this game is really fun to play.. It's located in Center Point Sabah, 5th floor in Fun Square. To play this game u need 4 token which cost RM2. I've been playing few times in this 2 weeks, not everyday actually.. i think i've spent almost RM20 for it.. (i think it's more that that..lolz)

but, there's few little problem..

1. there's only few song i like..
2. it's not a REAL Jubeat orz.. this machine is called Magic Box.. but, the gameplay is similar to the real Jubeat
3. the machine is place NEXT to that basketball game (you can see in the first picture of this post..) im really worried that one of that ball would bounce and hit my face while playing it.

they say there's 4 machine in Fun Square. 2 were located at the entrance, i dont know where the other 2 is.. they say it's on 3rd floor? i havent go there yet..

anyway, here's some video of me playing it.. this video was taken last week..




there are some song extreme mode with high level but easy, and there some with low level but so hard as it in high level.. that's the fun about this game.

im gonna memorize the beats from the video i took and gonna aim for a SSS.. lol, i wonder how long will it take for me to get that SSS.

DIY pedobear head



originally, i plan to wear the Pedobear head in this year Hobbycon. But.. since 31st July 2010 was suppose to be my last day working in UMS due to my contract expired, i plan to leave a little memories by joining the event and have fun with the Pedobear head...

but, my contract have been renew for 3month (YAY!) and the plan doesn't went as i thought.. and lucky none of my co-worker was there.


in all convention (either anime or gaming related) i see trough internet, atleast someone will wear as a Pedobear.. and last 2years Hobbycon i attend.. i didnt see one or more likely, no one was planning to be one.. so, i decided.. to be one!

so yeah, this year Hobbycon i will be a Pedobear again on day 1.. and let me inform you all that i wont be wearing a full body pedobear suits. Daiso have the fabric, but that size wont be enough.. and if i were to use the fabric from Daiso, it's gonna cost me A LOT!

so.. sorry, no full body pedobear. but i will wear something that will go with the head.. :3



now in this post, im going to share how i create the Pedobear head or should i say... Pedobear helmet :3


1st to make is the frame.
the material you need to make the frame is bendable wire, a masking tape and a "Manila card" (what do u call it in english??)

the bendable wire, depend on you which size you prefer.. but in my case, i go with the thin. because it's easy to shape it..
you can get these wire from a hardware shop for RM2 a roll..

i use my own head to create the frame.. below is simple frame i used


next is..use the "Manila Card" as the layer for the frame.. and cut it according to the frame..


use masking tape to stick the layer to the frame.. i used masking tape because it was simple.. :3
now.. you have the frame for the helmet..



now for the skin.. the fabric i use is known as a felt. correct me if im wrong here.. i bought 2 piece 70cm x 70cm for RM10.
1 piece doesent cover the whole frame..

now, the step here is same as the manila card before..

Back

Front


sew it togather, and you have this



draw the position for eye n mouth

about the ear.. the brown is the left over for the head. the light brown felt is also from Daiso for RM5. i bought the small one.. i dont remember the size..sorry about that!

inside the ear, i used a styrofoam insted of a cotton.. yes, cotton is better. but i prefer styrofoam because it's easy to shape the ear.
same steps with the upper lips.. (what do u call it for bear??)


now cut and make hole on the eye and mouth (you can skip the mouth if you want too, i didnt coz i need to comunicate.. lolz)

use a light pick color felt (which you can get in Daiso for RM5.) 9cmx9cm should be enough to cover the mouth..

after you sew the mouth cover, now put the upper lips and bottom lips on top of the light pink mouth to cover the stiches.


for the eye.. i use a Clip UP Sunglasses no.2 i bought it from Daiso for RM5 also.
put the sunglasses lens BETWEEN the skin and the frame. use the clip and clip it on the wire frame..

and there you have it..
