Wednesday Devo: Toxic Players

Unnamed Player: Ang tanga tanga mo! ***** Wag ka na mag laro ng <insert game here>! Unnamed Player#2: Nag skin ka pa! ***** mo naman! Unanmed Player #3: vovo mo wag ka na mag <insert game here>! It’s natural to experience players like these specially on team competitive games. Either you’re playing League of Legends, Dota 2, Vainglory or even sim-strat titles. Hindi nakakatuwang kalaro yung mga taong magkamali ka lang ng maliit, kulang nalang sunugin sa impiyerno ang kaluluwa mo sa tindi at sa dami ng murang ibabato sayo….

Wednesday Devo: Potential

Ever since the inhumans started popping out in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. the discussion on-screen has focused on unlocking an inhuman person’s potential.

Instead of being grateful for everything that we have, we complain of the things that we…

Or have you had those moments when you just disappointed someone you respect? A parent, a friend, a lover, someone you look up to, or even your boss? How do you go about it? How do you feel like after that? Crappy right? That’s a feeling all too familair for Tadashi Yamaguchi from Haikyuu! Yamaguchi’s strength was with his capability of doing a “float serve”….

Wednesday Devo: Running Away

In life, we’ve always had that feeling of running away from responsibilities or from tasks that are either too scary or too troublesome. But what happens when you run away from something that as you did so, defines you as a person? That’s what happened to Haikyuu‘s! Chikara Ennoshita. He was one of the few players in the Karusuno‘s mens volleyball team that got fed up with the way their current coach (coach Ukai) has often shouted and scolded at them. He then decided to just skip a practice by feigning…
