Welcome back (again)! I’ll pick up where I left off. I received my case a week later and sold it at the lowly price of 5 dollars. I tried to keep a bright face as two new keys was better than none. Except, it might as well been none since the only thing I seemed to get out of it was a dumb UMP. However, I remained sharp and instead of buying two glove cases, I only bought one, leaving the rest of the money invested in a shiny new, Spectrum Case. Yeah, I sold the case for the price of its key. Now all I had to do was wait for the case to drop and BOOM, Redit’s new front page would be littered with, “Dirtbag Kid Unboxes 800,000 dollar knife OMG!1!!” (I can dream big, can’t I?) Fast forward a few weeks and the unspeakable happens. I meet another kid at least 5 years younger than me on an official Deathmatch server. For some unknown reason, he friends me and I magically scam him (Skin Insanity Level 5 Achieved) into giving me his Spectrum Case. I knew he had one because I got bored one night and started surfing all my CS:GO Friends’ profiles. (That’s how you know it’s extreme insanity.) Now, because of my Dad’s support (not financially, of course. I never get financial support for some reason), he liked to watch my unboxings in hope I get something stupid. I don’t know why, but I stopped inviting him because of it. That night, however, was different. I had that key aging in my inventory for at least 2 weeks and I was desperate to open it. With a blurt of my words, I accidentally invited my father to watch the unboxing, he did not decline. He stood behind me, peering over my shoulder as he scanned the contents of the box, finally pointing toward the blue columns across the top. I pointed at the gold token. “See Dad?” I smirked, “I’m going to get a kneiv.” He scanned the screen, quoting the small piece of text at the bottom, “Items you COULD get in this box. You’re gonna get a blue.” “yeah, but I COULD get a 20,000 dollar knife. And that’s better.” I unboxed the case, watching the choppy spinner lag through each token (like I said, Soccer-Mom laptop) finally reaching at its destination with the bright pink, “AWP | Fever Dream” in Minimal Wear. I screamed. Never before had I gotten a pink skin, so that was pretty exciting. I quickly looked up the price and read the one I preferred best. “It’s 80 dollars!” My father wore a face of true astonish; I wasn’t surprised. When I’d calmed down, I checked to see how much the community market was offering. 20 Dollars. “Wha-?” Turns out, it’s 80 dollars, even in Minimal wear . . . assuming you have a StatTrak. Mine was regular. Rest in pepperonis hopes and dreams of being one-step closer to that low-budget gaming rig of 700 dollars. I kept the AWP for a month, showing it off to many people in matchmaking before letting it go in exchange for 4 more keys. After that, I realized Valve really hates me and CS:GO was never made to make money off of. The best I got out of that “Fever Dream” was a “P90 | Shallow Grave” for the lowly price of 5 dollars (later to be 3 dollars as price fluctuation slowed). Now I live under a rock with my AWP | Safari Mesh (I'm going to call her Dmitri after last night's gameplay. Very much hunting guaranteed) . If you see my Fever Dream anywhere, tell him to come home. We all miss him. -RealityPublishing (Thank you MLPForums for creating scheduled release times. We all love you for that )
WELCOME BACK! I hast returned after my longest (and genuinely my most boring) hiatus! Do I regret taking such a long break after “promising” to write more? Yeah. I do. Am I ditching the corporate episode style to the blog? Yes. Why? Because being the owner of an episodic webseries without payment or any kind of royalties and copyrights is dumb and decreases my motivation toward producing content with outstandingly high effort put into it when I can write anything and make it worth reading regardless. Another reason for that being I finally picked up writing again and would like a fresh start without the aim of being the most popular brony within vicinity of a dying fandom (I hate to admit it, but yes, I had priorities). Regardless, it’s nice to be back and try to keep this ship afloat for at least a little bit longer. I’ve been spending more time with “Le Brick”, so let’s see what this baby can do. (not to mention, I’ve done a few stupid stuff over the past few months and it would be nice to share them for a change ) Let’s get started, shall we? It should come as no surprise that I am the poorest kid on the block. Even without knowing the others in my neighborhood, you could automatically point me out from the crowd just by the number of hours I spent this summer tirelessly racking up hours on steam for the sake of a sick meme. By now you’re probably wondering, “What does being poor have to do with hours on Steam?” Well, at first, this wouldn’t come up as a surprise. But like any aspiring teen who is one-year shy of getting access from the biggest supply of minimum wage job applications, I liked to abuse any and all systems to find a way to get profit. To be clear and honest, this habit started back when I started playing TF2 (y’know, when it wasn’t dead. Well, it’s still not dead; but back then it wasn’t as dead as it is today) and learned of Community Marketplace. There, I learned you could sell Virtual Items for Real Cash. That got my little gears grinding as I suddenly discovered random drops would populate my inventory after only an hour of gameplay. How cool is that? Returning to my current dilemma. Little did I know the 10 dollar game I purchased on sale (with the rare occasion of 33% off or something like that) could grant me more profit than any other game. To my unknowing, Counter Strike: Global Offense has some of the most profitable in-game items ever acquired in history (with some prices ranging up to a rumored 10k!). Once again, I had those little instincts clicking again. What if I could get those items and buy something more worthwhile? Like . . . I turned to my cheesy 200 dollar Soccer-Mom Laptop, “A GAMING PC” It’d be done before, of course. After that very moment (and getting the courage to convince my Dad this was a good investment), I started to collect every case I could get my hands on; and, after watching enough Anomaly vids to realize that, “YES, IT IS POSSIBLE TO GET TWO KNIVES IN THE FIRST 15 CASES”, I started converting every penny I had into the digital currency known simply as, “keys”. I only had 20 dollars, but any money is good money! Especially if you had the chance to make a 300 dollar profit from it! At the time, the Glove Case had truly lost its moment as the brand new Spectrum Case was revealed just a shy two days ago with its peak price being a total of about 15 dollars. I would wait a while before I could open those; and even if I got one, I’d sell it right away to buy more keys for Glove Cases. (‘Cause a good pair of gloves looked really swanky!) A 20 dollar bill gives you about 8 keys. Out of those 8 keys, the best I got was an “AK-47 | Elite Build” with Minimal Wear float (Condition). I was distraught, but refused to give up on such an American dream. “Capitalism will prevail! I will gamble more!” I’d scream in my small two bedroom apartment. Shortly after my disappointing unboxing a friend whom I hadn’t seen (wait, Rebus has friends?) in over a year came online. We were friends IRL, so I invited him to play on the new map, Canals. We had a blast and I was still in Silver II. Figures. (I’m about Silver Elite now, so HA) Still, in those final moments of the map being reassigned, the little icon for the “SPECTRUM CASE” shone my friend’s name beneath it shone in the right pane next to the leaderboards. I was screamed as though my friend had won the lottery. It was late at night, so we both logged off. Regardless, I convinced him to give me his case for no real price in return. He didn’t play CS:GO often, so he didn’t keep up with the “politics”. I was one step closer to getting that “2 Knives in 15 Cases” unboxing experience. Unfortunately, Steam Authorizer is that one jerk you don’t invite to parties. I know two-part-ers are undesirable, but stay tuned anyway! The next part will be released tomorrow at 7:00AM Cent! I’ll see you there!
First and foremost, I'd like to thank everyone for reaching the 5000 view count. Seriously, I don't think I've ever reached a number that big for any of my work. Thank you for everything; it's been a wonderful holiday season. Secondly, no, this is not the special. This entry is simply me writing a review for something that happened two hours ago. I'm working on the special; I've gotta fix up the images in photoshop and I'll go over a few notes. I've been backed up with two new entries (a first) so I've got about one more entry after this and I'll be releasing the special. Thank you everyone, it means a lot. SO! Watch_Dogs, Watch_Dogs, Watch_Dogs. If I got a nickel every time I mentioned that card-board cutout of a game, I'd be rich. So where to begin. Let's see . . . As many readers may or may not know, I've been in the process of my "worst" move. It's taken a lot out of all of us, our trip to the states. We've thrown away about 20 pounds of childhood memorabilia and shedding a few tears in the process. Anyway, while sorting through my things, I found it. My old copy of Watch_Dogs, a game I picked up not a month ago. Well, this time I had the case, so I suppose it's different. Anyway, I popped open the case and found both discs inside, patiently waiting for me to rage at the TV one last time; I placed the cd into my XBox and tried to load the game one last time. Did it work? Of course not, but it did give me an idea. Hidden behind the cover art was a phone number, one to Ubisoft Support. So I called them up, hoping that with whatever glimmer of hope I still had, I'd be able to exchange my broken copy for a new one (a code at least). Yeah, good luck with that. Ubisoft Support, although not the worst, couldn't care less. I'll admit, the person on the phone was nice, but he kept referring me to buying a new copy. (Apparently there was some sale on the original to make way for Watch_Dogs 2) "I don't wanna buy a new copy! Just give me a code or something!" That call was a waste of money. Anyway, fast forward to today, I managed to pick up a copy on Steam for 15 bucks on the "Complete Edition" (A friend picked it up for me; I'm cheap). So I spent the whole day downloading the gaping 17GBs at 500KB/s. How delightful. You've gotta thank hotel internet for their relentless dedication. On to the juicy parts . . . GAMEPLAY! The GAMEPLAY IS STUNNING! When I move my mouse, it's like I'm a glitchy hacker. While watching the cutscenes, I can't tell if I'm lagging or that's the real-deal. 20 frames per second is like a life goal. Could you imagine what would happen if the real world ran at 20 frames per second? We'd all be buying GTX 1080s. That's what would happen. There's really no point to this entry anymore. There's not much to say, so I'll let the pictures of my rad adventure pull it off. AIDEN PEARCE LOOKS GOOD AT 800X600 RESOLUTION (Yeah, his name is spelled that way. I had to check.) I always looked at it as an aesthetic_the bare streets and no shadows kinda added to aiden's crippling depression.jpg (Not to mention, check out that guy in the poster! He's lookin' pretty fiiiiine!) OWL MOTEL NEVER LOOKED BETTER (Shot with in-game engine) Ubisoft is the Picaso of pixel art. Look at all those fine textures! Welp, that was my "adventure". It lasted a good half-hour, so it's not that bad. Like I said, I've got better entries (unlike this one) coming soon! So stick around for those. Hopefully I've have Internet to post 5k special. -RealityPublishing (If you couldn't tell, this is my "I just woke up" writing. ) Discord: https://discord.gg/6fNjXFq FiMFiction:http://www.fimfiction.net/user/RealityPublishing ALSO: This is going to be my new profile picture. I hope you enjoy.
It's the holidays! You know what that means? It means I've gotta come up with some kind of "Christmas Special" so I can get some kind of BOOST in popularity. But I digress, it's the holidays, a time to sit back, create some debt, worship the chimney-sweeping Coca-Cola dude, Santa Claus, and replay that "NINTENDO 64" meme I love so much. So let's sit back, relax, and step down to earth with our first-ever: REPUB'S 2016 HOLIDAY SPECTACULAR A WEEK IN THE LIFE OF REPUB, KING OF REALLY BAD FANFICTION, EXTREMELY BELATED BLOG ENTRIES AND FORGETTING WHAT DAY IT IS. SERIOUSLY, IS IT LIKE . . . SUNDAY OR SOMETHING? DOES THAT MEAN SCHOOL IN THE MORNING? DARN. Monday, December 19st, 2016 We had an early Christmas, nothing more than a few presents under the tree. Reason we did it early was because the movers were coming the next morning and we had to be prepared. Now, usually I'm the last person to do so, but I really think I had the upper hand in all this. For the last three days, I'd been throwing all my old toys and such from the last 8 or 9 years (a lot of tears were shed), so my soul was prepared for anything (about 5 huge garbage bags full of junk). Unfortunately, I'm still a procrastinator and still had about two bags to take care off; I didn't sleep that night (partly because of the early Christmas) I will admit, I have a terrible gift of "The Careful Eye"; meaning, my holidays are always the most anti-climatic parts of the year. No matter how well you hide a gift, I; for some reason, always find it. So there was no surprise in my holiday gift list. I received a new laptop (AMD Quad-Core 1.6Ghz HP Notebook PC w/ 8GB RAM), the MLP Twilight Sparkle Train Conducter set (really cool, btw), and the Twilight Sparkle Holiday Ornament (Hallmark. It looks like it's one of the newer designs for the 2017 movie). Not a bad loadout for this year, so I'll take what I can get (that laptop was a very good payoff). I didn't sleep that night. No, not only because I was up all night downloading 3.2 GBs of the famed, "Blackjrxiii"'s work, but because I still had a lot to pack and throw away. Since then, I've been sleeping really late. I suppose you could call that the, "Last Sunrise I'll Ever See". TUESDAY, DECEMBER 20TH, 2016 Movers in Japan are no joke. For one, they take their jobs very seriously and will starve to finish their duties (unless it's lunchtime, which they'll ditch anything for). We in Japan like to call them the, "Ninja Movers" because if you don't specify every little thing you do not want packed, they'll take it away. If you turn your back, they'll pack your stuff in such an aggressively careful way, whatever you left will be compact in a neat little box the next time you look. I sat in the bathroom, the safest room of the whole house, and wasted away with erotic roleplay with some of the PonyCrush Community. (It got really saucy, so I'll leave it at that). Afterward, the house was pretty much empty with the exception of a few pieces of furniture later to be sold to some random people online. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 21ST, 2016 Lazy day #1. We did nothing but sit around; I did a bit of late schoolwork (wow, RePub does school? What is this?) but I didn't get very far. I did, however, get to download my entire Steam library along with many other programs I needed from my "Le Brick" Windows XP computer. Y'know, I take back what I said about Windows 10. It's kinda cool once you remove: -Pre-installed programs (Includes HotalAdvisor. WHAT THE HELL IS THAT FOR?) -Cortana -OneDrive -Office 360 (If I have 2007 forever, why would I pay a subscription for something marginally better?) -Microsoft Edge -Custom Toolbars -Bing -Wallpapers made by Windows -Xbox Everywhere -Xbox Live -Apps on the Start-Menu -Apps in general -Pretty much everything added in Windows 10. Other than that ^, everything's pretty cool. Best console I've ever bought. (Did I tell you it has a Numpad?) THURSDAY, DECEMBER 22ND, 2016 I played CS:GO all day and scammed my friend for 9 extra skins (Plus one I got via random drop). I think it's hit me . . . the Skin Insanity. I had a conversation with another friend of mine (wow, RePub has friends?!? What is THIS?!?) about Stage Definition for many of the Skin Insanity symptoms. Here's what we came up with: Stage 1 - Want it, need it. Stage 2 - Spending all your money in CS:GO Stage 3 - Attempted Thievery Stage 4 - Scam your friends and Family Stage 5 - Investing every dying cent into that rare pair of Gloves (or knife) Yeah, Stage 4 is hitting pretty hard, but I think it's been dying down. Now if you'll excuse me, I've gotta shoot 600 more bots in training ('cause I suck real bad) Oh, and I think this was the day I wrote about the MLP Gameloft game. Uh . . . yeah . . . something like that. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 23RD, 2016 We donated a lot of extra crap during this day; but that night, I had the honor of viewing the Assassin's Creed Movie in theater (3D, but I recommend 2D because of a lot of action). Without spoilers, it's not bad (which is a first for a video game movie). I think it needs a lot of work; there are a lot of scenes that'll cut from the middle of a conversation to look at some random plant, but that's all good when you look at it as a whole. It's got some trippy parkour (which is expected), but I think the underline message is to create a withstanding example for future video-game based movies. And with that goal in mind, I believe it succeeded. Let's hope FNAF doesn't screw it up. (Oh, I saw Rogue One a week earlier; I'll write a review on that whenever I get the time) SATURDAY, DECEMBER 24TH, 2016 Technically, this was Christmas Eve, but we didn't have anything to give so we went out for the day. It was more of a family day, so it's not much to talk about. My mother was on her usual quest to find the "perfect photo", so that left me and my father out to linger. Earlier that day, however, we had to find our little bird, Kiwi, a new home. He didn't make many appearances in this blog, but he's in the thumbnail for the entry, "HOW 2 SNORT WASABI (Part 1)". RIP Kiwi, gud burd. SUNDAY, DECEMBER 25, 2016 (Wow, that title really trumps yesterday) It's Christmas and I awoke to Windows 10 updates that've been collecting over the past week! Thank you, Microsoft for a present more forgetful than my grandmother's socks: Three hours of waiting! Now, there's a tradition here in Japan. When that holiday where you see Americans dressing up in reds and hanging lights over their door comes around, you better call KFC for a reservation. "Why?" You ask. Well, I'll tell you. When Christmas rolls around, every single Japanese person in this country runs to their nearest KFC (potentially a mile away) to collect their holiday chicken. It's true! They'll run across the island to pick up their holiday tradition of taking in the Coronal's moist chicken with the least amount of time between bites. My mother decided to jump on the band wagon this year and pushed us all out the door (and across the island) to pick up the golden-fried legs of an Ancient Japanese tradition. When we arrived, we half expected a line to be waiting outside the feeble red and white building. Much to our surprise, no one was there except two petite Japanese women; they were no older than 20. My mother tried to go inside, but the two ladies told us they were closed for the holidays and instead offered us a tiny box of $10 chicken legs. From the corner of her eye, however, a large family, no smaller than six or seven persons, barged out from the KFC with huge, black drums of chicken. My mother was furious and demanded to know why they were closed and what happened to all that chicken; I stared at the feeble box of second-rate food. The lady backed off, trying to explain that those customers had paid for a reservation one month in advance. So while we were stuck in the cold with our poor-man's turkey, everyone else was living it up with their enormous barrels of exclusive KFC. We had to settle with the low-rate 10 dollar chicken, splitting a single box between the three of us. --- We're almost at 5,000 Views, so I'll make my thank-you speech here for the holidays: Thank you all for sticking with us throughout the year! It's been quite an adventure writing these, so I sincerely hope that my disparity has given all of you a few laughs! Since coming here, I certainly hope I've made a good impression on the many of you, even if few of my conversations were a bit aggressive (I've got an inbox full of take-down notices ). We're still working on big projects and I hope this entry can make up for all of the ones I missed. I remember writing my first entry as some sort of complaint/rant about BronyMate (my, how short those entries were back then) and somehow they evolved! Now we're at 5000 Views by strangers who I don't even know! I honestly didn't think people read my work (they probably don't; it's probably me just refreshing the page a hundred times ). My, how we've all grown. Yes, I've run into a few dry patches from here to there, but life goes on and there's always new things to talk about. I know there's still a long way to go, but I hope this blog continues to grow and make its mark upon these forums; that's my only Christmas wish. Thank you all, and I'll see you in the next post, -RealityPublishing Discord: https://discord.gg/6fNjXFq FiMFiction: http://www.fimfiction.net/user/RealityPublishing DeviantArt: http://realityc.deviantart.com/ Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyxI6DWe4sNYzsJxu2Sid2g "Special thanks to everyone in the Brony Fandom.
