Treasure Hunt #2 - A Sharingan Helps Find Clues

Welcome to King Drekon's second Treasure Hunt! As the name suggests, you will be searching for a particular treasure. What is it? An Ultimate Game Card (UGC) code worth 1,000 Artix Points. As mentioned in the title, a sharingan will help you find the clues faster. If you don't know what a sharingan is then too bad. Now then, let the games begin!

All clues are hidden in the video at random places. Each clue is a letter and they all culminate to form a UGC code that you can use to redeem at Artix or any other gaming website.

As a bonus for reading about the Treasure Hunt here on the blog, here are some additional clues.

  1. None of the clues are in the chat bubbles.
  2. Most clues have different colors to blend into the background.
  3. Most clues last only 5 seconds, while some just a fraction of a second.
  4. Places that are uncommon or opposite of the mouse cursor are ideal.

How To Untag Yourself From Facebook Pictures

If you're one of those people who are constantly tagged by friends in pictures and want to untag yourself, you can do so in just a few easy clicks. Of course, the easiest way to prevent yourself from being tagged is to either delete or block those people on your friends list, but removing a tag of yourself is an easy way to resolve the issue without creating tensions among friends.

Remove a tag in Facebook's standard image viewer.
  1. Look below the picture and to the right of the comment section.
  2. Click the "Report/Remove Tag" link.
  3. In the dialog box that appears, check the "I want to untag myself" checkbox.
  4. Click the "Remove Tag" button that appears.
Remove a tag in Facebook's theater image viewer.
  1. Point the cursor at the bottom of the image and click "Options".
  2. Click the "Report/Remove Tag" menu item.
  3. Perform steps 3 and 4 shown above.
That's all there is to it. Now you should be able to enjoy the peace and quiet of not having your notifications explode every 2 seconds! :)

Drekon Plays Online FPS Games - Win :) and Fail :(

Having played several online games consistently over the past few years, it's not surprising that my interest in them is now dwindling.

For example, the Facebook game NinjaSaga was once at the top of my "must play" list to pass the times. I've been playing it since 2009 and I still think highly of it. In fact, there are many of it's features that I would certainly implement in a game if I made one. *wink wink* :) I've even gone so far as to spend $20 on the game to upgrade one of my characters in early 2012. Unfortunately, however, I've lost interest in the game and no longer bother to log-in to collect the daily sign-in rewards and tokens.

Perhaps it's due to my exposure to more "social" games like EpicDuel. Speaking of which, that's another game that has seen less and less of me. Although I've been very inactive in EpicDuel recently I haven't completely lost interest in the game. I've heard from a few people who were concerned that I might have quit the game, but rest assured I haven't. The simple reason is that I've found other things to occupy my time.

As most of you know, if you follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or YouTube, I've been quite active in an online MMO game called TankiOnline. I intend to continue making videos of it, but those types of videos will be rare until I get my hands on a much faster - more up to date - PC. This is also another game that has many features I think should be in the ultimate game of my dreams! *wink*

Aside from that, I've had my eyes on two new games that I spotted while browsing the "internets" - inside joke. :)

What are they?

The Win! :)
The first is Contract Wars. This is a browser FPS game and it's like a freaky mix of EpicDuel, Ninja SagaTankiOnline and BlackOps 2. You can customize your character's weapons like BlackOps 2, the skills like EpicDuel & Ninja Saga, and the user interface - more specifically the upgrade system - is similar to that of TankiOnline. The game allows you to buy upgrades with Ultimate Game Card codes (UGC), so if you decide to play Contract Wars you will want to participate in my occasional Treasure Hunts to win free UGC codes.

Frankly, I think the way the customization was built is brilliant! Empowering players to decide on exactly the type of builds/loadouts they want is far more desirable than to be forced to use pre-made weapons and skills. The only problem I'm having is mostly to do with my outdated computer and not the game itself. It lags often, but not as bad as Black Ops 2 did. It's definitely something I intend to play often when I get a new computer.

The Fail! :(
The second FPS game that captured my attention is Ghost Recon Online. From what I've seen in several YouTube videos and the game promotion videos, it's a pretty sweet looking game with many of the features I like. Unfortunately, after hours of waiting for the download and install, the game ate away at my computer's memory so much that I eventually got the "blue screen of death" twice after lagging at the login screen. The login screen!!! >.>

Long story short, I need to upgrade my system so I can enjoy these great games.
