Episode 4 – A New Patch! (v. 0.39)

28 06 2007

Hey guys. Sorry this episode’s a couple of days late. I’ve been so busy with quite a few things, so I wasn’t even able to THINK about this episode until this last Monday. And I figured if I put it off for another couple weeks, everyone would be disappointed, so I worked as fast as I could to get this out as soon as possible.

Well…all that aside, A LOT has happened since the last episode. We had a new patch, which consisted of new places, new quests, and new Cash Shop items, so the News section is quite long. Because of this, the Rant is kinda cut short. But it’s about enjoyment outside training. ^_^

I received a few voicemails, which is amazing, and a MYRIAD of e-mails. I wasn’t able to read all the e-mails on the episode and I hope no one feels offended by it. It’s just that there’s not enough time in the world to go through them all. Also please realize that I don’t just read out the first few e-mails I get and that I attempt to respond to each and every e-mail I receive. =P

As for what Jared was asking about, the MapleStory Music, can be found here. ^_^

Well…oh…before I go, the Voicemail Box phone number will be changing after June 30th. I believe that if you call the new number before June 30th, you’ll get a busy/fax tone thing, so don’t call it and spare yourselves the pain. But…AFTER JUNE 30TH THE ORIGINAL VOICEMAIL BOX NUMBER WILL STOP WORKING!!!! So yeah…Both numbers will be in the sidebar on the blog, and the old number will be taken down after it stops serving its purpose.

Much love guys. Sorry for the wait.

Episode 3 – Uncouth Youth

11 06 2007

Hey guys. ^_^

Before I say anything else, let me tell you….this episode is SUPER LONG. It’s been like 2 hours since I finished recording it, and I’m still trying to catch my breath. Well….I hope that the episodes continue to stay this long, but if I don’t get some MP3s instead of e-mails, I don’t know if I can keep it up. So if you can, please get me some MP3s. If not, I’d still love to have your text e-mails. ^_^

So….It’s been a busy couple weeks. My summer internship started and I’ve been working 8 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday. Then once I get back home, I’ve been helping my sister study for her finals which are this week, actually.

On a brighter note, I got 12 E-mails and 2 people commenting on the blog. ^_^ It was a mixture of suggestions, comments, rants, etc. I LOVE IT!!! Much love to all those who sent in e-mails or posted comments on the blog. Aqua Road Radio would be nothing without you guys, so keep ’em coming! ^_^

In News this week…..nothing happened. May is over, but the 2nd Anniverasry Event is still underway, though I believe that Double EXP and Double Drop have ended. Hopefully….there’ll be more to talk about next time.

The Rant this episode is about the arrogance of some of the higher level characters. Although it’s more serious than last episode’s rant, I hope you guys enjoy it. ^_^

Well…I promised a few links, so here we go. Finding the right places to train is one of the hardest things to do. If you train at the “conventional” spot for you job and level, there’s almost always too many people there. If you train elsewhere, you usually get less EXP than you could have gotten. Justin asked about places to train, so here’re some sites with guides that I hope will help ^_^.

As for the Maple Story DS trailer…..it is so horribly bad. It makes no sense to me. If someone gets it, please explain this to me. Also, there’s a gameplay video up on YouTube. It shows how the game is actually going to work, and in reality….it looks pretty bad…..

And here’s KIRBY_DS’s post about How Wiznet Should Make MapleStory DS

And finally, in response to what John said, Maroon 5’s Nothing Lasts Forever is AMAZING. And in fact, it reminds me of MapleStory every time I hear it. Click “Play” below to listen to it for yourself. ^_^

And now….the MOST IMPORTANT PART. If you look over to the right, under all the profile information, you should see an image that wasn’t there before. An image that says something about “MyChingo”. MyChingo is a site that lets you record yourself using a microphone through a java applet. Just click on the image. It’ll open up the Java applet. Type in your info, hit record, record a message, and click “Send Message” and I’ll get your message in an MP3 format. ^_^ Another way to get your voice up on Aqua Road Radio is through my newly created Voicemail Box. Just dial (641) 985-5999. Dial the extension (29728) and hit the # key. Go ahead and record your message and I’ll be able to download it as an MP3 and slip it right into the podcast. ^_^

Til next time. ^_^
