All this week I am now off for spring break. I haven't done so well with my algebra as it's a major pain to get good at. But thanks to a few friends, they are just about trying to do their best to get me on the right track into hoping that I can do well with the next remaining tests throughout the semester.

First things first. My grandmother has gone back with my Uncle. She's been getting more better and is now able to be back, while me and the rest of my family still have to take care of things ourselves. Although there were some problems that have happened between us, and it's best if I don't bring it up publicly. But after the longest time of doing everything in our power to take care of her, she got all the support that she needed and is now able to get everything back in control. But about the lawsuit, we may still consider to take it into action for later on. I am currently doing my own thing, but I still need to keep my studying for my next algebra test.

Just the other day, Nintendo has revealed their next console to the entire world for launch. The Nintendo Switch. It's mainly marketed as a home console, but it's actually a "hybrid" tablet, that serves as a home console and a handheld. The sales are actually doing really well for a start, thanks to the likes of Super Bomberman R (even though I thought Konami stopped caring about making traditional games, apparently, this will be their first one in a while) and probably the most anticipated Zelda game of all time, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It was to be a Wii U exclusive but it got delayed twice. And now it's available as a Wii U game and a launch title for the Nintendo Switch. Honestly, Nintendo done goofed with the Wii U. Little to no third party support, not enough interesting games to check out, weak hardware and an overall poorly marketed console. The Nintendo Switch did do better with it's marketing, but it still needs to get more stuff if Nintendo really wants to succeed in the business to stay afloat and keep the customers that care for the company in their trust. With all those crazy fanboys kissing Nintendo's butt no matter what bad mistake they make, will NOT I repeat, will NOT help them, and it won't help for any company at all, whatsoever. I won't be getting a Nintendo Switch just yet, and I may just pick up Breath of the Wild on the Wii U, despite confirmations that it will only run at 720p at with the Switch version running at 900p when being played on a TV. Both versions run at 30 FPS and it was maintained for Nintendo to aim for, during development.

They went back to using game cartridges thanks to the use of USB Sticks, SD cards and other flash media, those limits are no longer there. Cartridges are now a lot more capable of storing so much more space than it used to. Sadly, it can only store up between 1-32 GB of space. Although 32 GB is slightly more than a single-layer Blu-Ray disc which only goes up to 20 GB. Plus, the save data is written into the console's internal memory, not onto the cartridges themselves. And having only 32 GB worth of save data onto the console, seems very low compared to other consoles. Yeah. That's pretty bad. But that can be resolved by having an SD card that can store lots more extra space. But too bad you gotta pay extra money for it! :( Hope you have more than enough money because not only will you pay a fortune for SD cards, but the accessories and controllers too. And on top of that, Nintendo Network's online service will be charging you yearly when the fall comes. But the good sign is that, indie games can help the Switch be afloat as it's now more friendly to them and it can handle the Unreal Engine pretty well, as I researched and watched videos of. There's a lot more I can talk about, but I will leave that for a separate journal.

The next thing I want to announce is that, I now opened up my very own Discord Server. And if anyone wants to get a link to access it, you will have to ask me first directly and send me a note about it. If you are deemed trustworthy and you can actually maintain yourself well, then I will give the link to you in a private note. Friends can come too, and we currently have three mods that are moderating the server, with myself included of course.

And last but not least is that, I have 50 art pieces created and submitted in 2017! Here's a nice little poster of Mystical Monarchy in honor of that, guys! :)

Not yet. Not sure if I will, due to reports of it being underpowered.

It's not as strong as the PS4 or Xbox One. It's tend to be it's own thing.
