GATSBY Perfect Hold Wax Short Hair Hard

Thursday, July 24, 2014

This is definitely the better Perfect Hold Wax compared to the "Extra Hard" version. This one has a much better hold and it last longer too. "Short Hair Hard" is more like the Pink "Spiky Edge" Moving Rubber. However, I do think my hair is less "messy" whenever I use this wax than when I use any moving rubber. I just wished the Perfect Hold Wax line was a little bit less expensive. You really don't get a lot for what you pay... Well, I think that's it! I feel like I have used EVERY product the Gatsby company has to offer hahaha. Maybe one day I'll try out their hairspray line too LOL! 

Khoa's Axe Guide

Sunday, July 6, 2014

I finally made my first guide for DOTA 2! Of course it would be for Axe... I posted my guide on DOTAFire and you can check it out HERE. Other than being one of my favorite heroes to play in the game, Axe is actually my most successful hero in terms of win percentage. I have played 122 games with Axe and won 61% of the time. If you are interested in seeing my entire DOTA 2 stats you can look at it on Dotabuff (keep the laughter to a minimum please). I don't think I will be making guides for ALL the heroes in DOTA 2... there's too many and I still suck or just average with most of them.

As for FSB 2, I really thought I would be playing it more but for some reason I'm not... I don't know what the explanation is... it's just I don't have the desire to play the game... maybe I'm just bored of it, the community is too small (although it is bigger than the first FSB), or I simply grew out of FSB? I will still be playing every now and then but I won't be as active as I was in the original FSB. Don't get me wrong, I like the game it's just I rather do something else or play another game rather than play FSB...
       

Gatsby Perfect Hair Hold Wax - Extra Hard

Saturday, June 28, 2014

This is the first non moving rubber product from Gatsby that I have used and actually liked! If I had to describe it I would say this wax is a mix between the gray moving rubber, "Grunge Mat", and the purple moving rubber, "Wild Shake". This "Perfect Hold Wax" is not as matted as the gray and not as crazy as the purple... if you know what I mean haha. While I do like to use this I am still leaning towards moving rubber over the wax because I feel like this product doesn't have enough strength to it like the trusty moving rubber series. I can put the product on my hair in the morning but the effect it creates will quickly fade and my hair will go back to straight and flat in no time... unlike moving rubber which keeps the style almost all day. I guess I could put more of the wax on but I don't want my hair to feel heavy and weighted down... it's supposed to look natural remember? Maybe this "extra hard" brand is not the one I should be using... I will try out the "short hard" edition next to see if it'll make any difference. Another thing... why does this wax have to be so expensive!? The container it comes in looks fine and all but you don't get a lot at all of the product especially for the price that you pay for it... somewhere around $10-$18 for a small 60g. You don't need to use a lot of it everyday but still... I want more of it...

FSB 2 OBT

Saturday, June 14, 2014

Man it's hard to unlearn how to rebound a certain way after you have been doing it for so long haha. What I'm trying to say is I still sometimes find myself attempting to reverse rebound or getting the ball from all the weird angles like you can do in FSB 1. However, I still think I should be able to get some of those bounces... I swear I am in better position than the other guy and yet he can get it over me. Maybe it's lag or something... or maybe I just need more practice. Did I mention I hate the loose ball system in this game so much? It's so stupid and annoying that you can be running right on top of the ball but you won't pick it up... or it's so hard to see where the ball is going when it's on the ground... like I said before, so many times there are multiple people running around trying to get that ball and end up being nowhere near it because the ball was behind them all the time... those people must have saw the same thing right? I am glad they fixed the slow motion lag thing, much better now... there is still lag but it's "normal" lag hahaha. 
It's still so funny to me to see how some people still treat this like a regular basketball game... I mean how many times are you going to get blocked trying to drive to the basket before you stop and do something else?! FSB 2 is all about making Gamekiss money! It's even worse than before... there are so many things that requires GKash now... temporary stats on clothes, skills, the little companion people, special characters, etc... I know I won't be spending money on this game though... or definitely not as much as I did when I was playing FSB 1 hahaha.

FSB 2 CBT

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

So now that the closed beta for FSB 2 is over, there are a few things which I hope will be fixed when the open beta comes around or even at the official launch of the game. If not fixed at least improve upon it haha. There are also some stuff which I don't like about the game too... I doubt these can be altered though because it's part of the game.

1.  FIX THE FREAKING LAG! It's so bad in FSB 2... I mean even worse than I could ever imagined. I think the game actually rewards laggers! For example, the game slows down when someone is lagging but the thing is the lagger seems to be moving at normal speed... you can get the ball wide open with plenty of room to shoot, the game slows down, you pull up for the jumper, the lagger somehow made up all that space and got to where you are... BLOCKED! Are you open or are you not? I can't even tell anymore in this lag. Another thing is it's almost impossible to defend a lagger... you can't block them and you can't face them up. Oh yeah... what is the deal with the weird pump fake animation before someone shoots?? Is that a bug within the game?? Most likely it's lag like usual... that stupid thing throws off my block timing so much. Get newer servers, upgrade current ones, IP block, etc... I don't care what they do, just improve the latency... lag was one of the reasons why the first FSB basically died.

2.  For some reason I really hate the loose ball mechanics in FSB 2... it's confusing to me LOL. The ball could be bouncing around on the ground, I step right on it but I still won't get it... I have seen many times where there are 3 or 4 people running after the ball and none will get it because the bounces on the ground looks so funny and weird...

3.  Is it me or does it seem like it takes so long to shoot a jumper in this game? Maybe it's lag or something but the shooting animation is so much longer than FSB 1... I like the shooting bar/meter and all but it should be a little faster...  yes yes... I know I can shoot a "red meter" shot and that will be quicker but still... overall it should be just a tad faster...

4.  Boost the 3pt success rate for PG. Maybe it's just because of the low levels but man... I shoot like 25% on my PG ALL from wide open shots... from reading my guides you should know how I play PG... I don't jack up shots... I only shoot wide open ones and right now it seems like NOTHING goes in... I'm not asking for PG to shoot like SG but come on... how can I help out my teammates by stretching the floor if I can't make anything?!

5.  Get rid of the stupid box on the right side of the screen telling you which buttons does what... I don't need to see that thing every single game... even when I close it, the thing will appear again in the next game.

6.  Auto-ready feature would be nice. I'm tired of telling my teammates "ready up"...

7.  The ability to level up your stat points without having to leave the room.

8.  The entire lobby system needs a big upgrade... I want to see who is in there, spectate games, invite people from the lobby into a game.

That's about all the things that I can remember right now... I'm sure I left out some more annoying aspect of the game... maybe I'll remember them later or once I start playing the game again. Overall I really enjoyed playing FSB 2 these past couple of days. The game is definitely different than FSB 1 but still very fun. Unfortunately I would like to say it saddens me that the game requires a lot more A spamming than its predecessor. Oh yeah... FIX THE LAG!!!
