Starting in Vanadiel - 2018 - Starting tips 101: Trusts ROV, ROE


Published October 17, 2018

A collection of tips on how to get started playing Final Fantasy XI on PC.  I've noticed that there are very few videos for new players (or old returning players that are new to this content) and decided to walk you around showing you NPC's that are helpful when first starting out.  I recorded this on October 16, 2018.

In this video I cover Records of Eminence (Sparks, money tips, equipment options, xp gains, bonuses), Trusts (where to get them, how to start getting them and how to use them), Rhapsodies in Vanadiel (helpful storyline that streamlines the process of acquiring useful unlocks for any player both starting and veteran) and show starting NPC's that are useful for a brand new character or even a returning one that has never started this content.

Continuation of our journey back to Vanadiel after a 9 year break.  We were unable to recover our old accounts so we went ahead and started with brand new characters.  Finally got a new account set up and recorded a bit of the first week of play in the Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game called Final Fantasy XI.  I included game footage of our play sessions showing a bit of issues I have with recording the footage. I apologize that the video isn't great.  I'm currently working on a solution.  As of the recording my husband and I are Rank 5 in San d'Oria, got our sub jobs open, our mounts and currently working on LB2!

Going back to Final Fantasy XI: Storytime 2003-2009


Published on Sep 28, 2018

It's the night before I start from scratch in a Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game called Final Fantasy XI.  I reminisce of my previous adventures in the game dating back to the beta of the PC release in North America in 2003 and lament the loss of my character from that era that I stopped playing back in 2009.

Space Battleship Yamato 2199 - 1979 Starblazers Theme Cover by Arsenette


Published August 16, 2018

In celebration of the Funimation release of "Space Battleship Yamato 2199" on Bluray/DVD in both English and Japanese for the Western audience (Amazon affiliated link: https://amzn.to/2nLSQBD ) I wanted to do something special.  Inspired by the ワンドロヤマト "One hour drawing Yamato" that goes on in Japan via Twitter #ymt60draw (Thanks to Poki for the heads up - https://twitter.com/popoki_cat/status/1030108912031158272 ) I wanted to try doing something that took me an hour to do.  I don't draw that well anymore so I figured I try singing the theme song in English.  There is no English version for the 2199 version so I reverted back to my original version from way back in 1979.  I arranged it to be a slower pace than the original (inspired by the early episodes of 2199) and a Capella since I didn't want to use the original music. These are the English Lyrics to Starblazers as it aired in Season 1 in the West when I was a kid. Hope you like it and please mind the scratchy voice as I'm suffering from cedar allergies which apparently are brand new to me.

Please support the original releases as they are near and dear to my heart.  The original 2199 crew that remade a FANTASTIC series and made it better, Crunchyroll for license rescuing it and bring the original to the West and Funimation for an amazing English dub.  Now with a great Bluray release it is a perfect time to jump into the series as a new fan while honoring the nostalgia for the original.  I'm still holding out hope that some day Funimation dubs the song in English for us old geezers that still sing these English lyrics every time the opening to this show starts. LOL

If you haven't seen it yet, the series is available for legal streaming as of this recording.

No Mans Sky: Next - PS4 Compilation (Fresh Start)


Published July 25, 2018

No Man's Sky was released 2 years ago on PS4 and I played dozens of hours when it first came out.  Then I took a break until the new updates came out.  It's been a year since then and I decided to start fresh from a brand new save with the NEXT update.  I'm relearning the game from scratch and so much has changed from when I first started! I love the new changes even if I'm really rusty.  I'm very happy that this games feels brand new and I didn't have to pay for more updates. All of these are free with purchase of the game!

This is a compilation of game play from my Twitch channel recorded July 24, 2018.

A note about depression and suicide - personal vlog

In light of recent news of even more high profile suicides.. and rapidly approaching anniversaries of deaths and attempts in my own family, I wanted to take the time to help encourage people.  Even if it's just 1 person this reaches.. I wanted to take the time to do so.  Depression is no joke.

10 year anniversary for Rambling Rican! New Banner (Finally)!

New website banner!

Geez. I've been around for a decade!  10 years have flown by!  And as per tradition.. I forgot to update the banner.. Last year I managed to get it up by April 1.. but this year it was busy with me moving to our first home!  Dust is still settling from the move but I'm starting to get back into it again with updating site stuff and trying to revamp my lineup.  I'm still working on stuff in the background and hoping they will see the light of day.  In the meantime I've been live-streaming gaming on Twitch on occasion and doing anime vlogs on YouTube between doing two different podcasts (one for gaming and one for animation, cartoons, etc.) also on YouTube.

10 year Anniversary! Send in your comments and questions to celebrate!

Arsenette YouTube Channel About Page ©Arsenette/YouTube

Hey everyone!  It had occurred to me that in a couple short weeks I'll be celebrating 10 years (officially) on YouTube (March 12) and later in the month (March 25) 10 years here on Rambling Rican!  WOW.. I'm in the middle of moving out of an apartment to a house (we move late'ish March) between both anniversaries.. but I wanted to celebrate! I will be doing a video similar to how William did his a few months ago to celebrate 10 years with a huge Q&A video.  Yes, that includes mostly Sasuke but I'll cover as much of that as I can!  I will be doing it in the new place and hopefully brand new office (so I'm no longer behind the couch! LOL).  So please send questions, comments, etc. so I can include it on the video!

Thank you! 250+ subscribers! Adpocalypse 2.0


Published on Jan 19, 2018

As I wait for my partnership status to be revoked because of Adpocalypse 2.0.. I take the time thank the 250+ subscribers who still support me and my content every month. This video serves as a Monthly update for stuff I'm doing and things I'm working on and I reminisce on my 10 year history on YouTube,  the roller coaster ride as I change genres and the journey that got me to this point in a sorta story-time segment.
