How Lovely They Are!

Training dog is hard work to do but there are few steps to make them understand you. The only thing I knew about dog few years ago is obtain them from one of dog breeder in town, we start with a puppy, take care of them, giving them something to eat, and play with them.

Just looking at how playful they are, really giving me a refreshment, besides they are so lovely when they do stupid things. Who doesn’t love dogs? Me and my boo does.

But of course we avoid wild dog, few years back I have been chasing by a big dog when I am walking down an alley from school. I am young, at my best performance, and a good climber. So when it chased me I run back and try to find a tree (this idea is from African movie when someone chased by a lion LoL). FOUND ONE! But it take 1 hour until it went away.

I better stay there at a tree rather than bitten by this sick wild dog. Few days later, someone killed the dog. It’s bad thing to do, but some people don’t tolerate threat and people don’t have enough information how to handle things like that.

My strategy to train my dog is pretty much simple, but if it’s hard to train your specific dog, it’s maybe the best to take class for that and check this Dog Training Tutor.

Kobie has always been a dog man. A native of Australia moved to the United States at age 11, where he worked first as a kennel hand and later as a dog trainer. Over the years he developed and refined what he saw as the most effective methods for dog obedience training. The Dog Training Tutor marks his debut dog training guide.

Make Them Sit
This is the basic step for you to communicate with your dog, so it’s definitely a good one to start with. I usually hold a stick/treat or anything (it doesn’t matter but be sure that it’s the one it put their attention to) close to my dog’s nose, then I move up so his/her head follow my stick and automatically he lower his bottom. Once he in the sit position, I say “SIT” loudly and give him the stick. Then I repeat for few times until he understand this kind of command.

Make Them Come
To do this, I take a collar on my dog, sit down, and say “COME” while me pulling the collar towards me. Then when he go to your side, give him a treat. It’s not easy to do, sometimes, they just go the other way, but after couple of times trying, I manage to do this.

Other than those two commands, there are actually some other difficult commands like make them down, stay, and leave it command. But, as long as my concern I am still happy to get those two command to my dog. I rather leave my boo to teach them other commands since it’s practically hard to do.

I would appreciate your opinion about this matter, so that we can learn from each other better to live this life abundantly!

Thank you.

Friends or Foes?

In life, there’s always people who doesn’t like you. There are times when we take care of them, the people we proudly call them our staffs, our friends, our colleagues, our bosses. There’s a time when they turns against us. Staffs who make fun of us, they have no idea what if we were not showing them our mercy in working life. Now, when they are not under us anymore, they mock us, they put us as if we are the only one to blame for.

They just don’t know how stupid they are until you show them who they really are, when we don’t act as a shield between them and the top managements. Some of them are practically just idiot. They don’t have “thanks” in their heart for what have we done for them, they practically don’t remember when we at first recruiting them among hundreds of people.

Not so far also with people who we call friends, colleagues. I treat them almost everyday back then, and now they just don’t remember and even try to call me. Only one of them is still contacting me sometimes. He is my best friend, colleague and once staff after all, I don’t think in the future I will find anyone better than him. His character is outstanding, he works with me late until morning, he offers much help, he asks after he bloodily working on his assignment and still can’t solve it, he become a smoker after working with me for a bit (anyway, that was my satisfaction, he follow his boss’s lifestyle), he loves women and loves to drink (once again follow his boss’s lifestyle).

I manage to save my friend’s asses in front of my bosses, when they were in trouble. Those moments I did for people I called friends, are gone in the past. People tend not to remember the past and move forward. It’s good at some level, but when they forget good person who helped them in the past, it’s kind of showing who they are in the future. They might or might not succeed in the future, it has nothing to do with they forgetting us. It’s a reminder for us to choose to hang out with people who purely supports us and not gonna forget about us, people who understand the concept of return the favor. {click to tweet}

I conduct some experiment back then just to know who my friends really are. So I call each of them and asking them to help me financially since I’m in deep misery. They have all their excuses :

  1. Not Answering my call or my messages.
  2. “Sorry, I just bought an apartment, so I don’t have anything left to lend you”
  3. “Who are you? Is this scam?”
  4. “Sorry, I don’t have the money”

Their sorry bullshit saying keep ringing in my ears, so this is who they actually are! This is when my concept on only loves who loves you back arise. Those kind of responses only leave me a question, “Why don’t you just say, how much do you need? I will help if I have!”

They just break the whole relationship with those sorry words. Sorry is never enough! People won’t help you when you are in trouble, because they are selfish. Sooner or later in their life, they will see all people leaving them for good. God damn selfish bastard!

But life never stop when friends don’t help you. They will not become your foes just because of that, but you will not contact them, you will not care for them anymore, you don’t even give a damn when they die or in deep shit.

We have to keep going on living this life, with a concept of success is our great revenge!

My Thank You Page!

Today is a thank you page of my life. If I’m not experience everything that I experience, I’m not gonna be here as who I am today. I am grateful for all the bad experiences, good experiences, thrilling, scary, and awesome ones.

thank you

Thanks for all the people in my life, who stays by my side when I’m totally on wrong side of a life, and also for people who stay away from me, when I’m in total mess, you will never know what you missed and we will not remember each other, just understand that we will never have the same respect as we should have, if you just accept my simple Hi to you few years back.

Thank you for my parents back there not knowing how life has turn up for their son, but they still believe their son. They hold their mouth from talking bad things and only call for a small question “Are you healthy?” And whenever I say bad things, they listen and throw back at me fascinating supports. “Mom, I don’t go to church anymore?” Mom : “Alright!, Just keep being healthy!”

I’m the one who introduce God to her, I’m the who denied my faith, and she accept it all. No one has great love for lousy sons and daughter like us than our parents.

In the end, I’m just gonna quote Matthew McConaughey, whatever we look up to, whatever we look forward to, and whoever we chasing, to that I’ll say “Alright! Alright! Alright!”

Life Is Not Linear or Even a Math To Solve!

Why people suicide? Because for them life is linear and 1 plus 1 equals 2. Who said that? Either you are god damn smart or god damn dumb! There’s always something wrong with the concept of Karma, if you do bad then you will ended up bad.  It’s just stupid, because like a game, life always have a cheater on it.

People can cheat dead! They can cheat bad luck! As strong as the concept of Karma itself, life cheating is also even an ancient concept that lies side by side with Karma. The mummification, black magic, white magic, the power of money, the power of lies and etc. All of them are the vehicles for cheating Karma. How many people escape from Karma? Look at the stars, if you can count it, you know the numbers!

Karma is always looking at the result of your action. If you view life like that, it’s one of many ways to die sooner! Life is learning and evolve, and you don’t have to solve its problem, because you can let it go and walk away then look another way to see something worth living for. It doesn’t ended up with arithmetic!

When a storm crushes your family’s place, do you go right away to them or wait until the storm calm down? There are something you don’t have to do even if it’s concerning your most precious ones. And if they die, did you feel guilty because you “can not save them”? Why do you come to the logic of being the guilty one? Ask yourself! What are you going to do with the storm? Are you able to stop it for crushing your family?

Are you somewhat God? That’s why I said my point if you think linear, then you will die in agony! There are a lot of ways to live this life! Look at those kids! Dying without parents! Abandoned by society! What do you think they think about themselves? They don’t think!! They live their life! They will take any garbage they can eat for the day! They try to survive every single day.

Japanese people going for a suicide because of enormous amount of works? Couples suicide because of love? People getting bullied and end up their life? I don’t intend to offend all of them making their decisions ending up their life, but seriously is it worth it? Why do people think if A failed then I must B died? You still have a lot of alphabet to work for!!! Why now?

Why not after you end up playing with those letters then you decide if this is the time to end your life? Why die early? What’s the rush? Don’t worry whoever in the end of your life, they will be still there waiting. No need to rush! Don’t think about Karma, bad luck, or any superstitious things! It’s not worth a penny!

Think, how you can cheat life! Here I will give you a thought of it!

I would appreciate your opinion about this matter, so that we can learn from each other better to live this life abundantly!

We Got the Brain, the Intention, but We Lack Determination!

We all wants to be happy, even if it’s only a slightest piece. In a life of every man, we were born, enjoyed playful children’s period, went to schools, universities. We fall in love, we got married. We got ourselves an image of both of us, we watch him grow. We fight with each others, we argue, and we get old then we stop fighting, we take care of each other more.

It’s a path of life, thinking it over, it’s great path of life. We die when we old, no drama we bring later in graves. It’s good life thinking of it. But fact, it’s just something that currently we experience. If I know, if we know, where our life taking us, what path lies ahead of us, we might just want to die now, or can’t wait to experience the future.

Chris Gardner is a caring father who love his son and his wife but things are tough. As a sales person he choose wrong product to sell. It was unnecessary luxury and expensive. He went for work after taking his kid to some sort of children’s daycare, while his wife works a double shift. If he only able to sell 2 scanners per month, it will be enough for rent and stuffs. The problem is he didn’t sold any of it for a while.

One day, he bump into a great looking guy with great looking car, and he asked “what do you do? and how you do it?” He said, “stockbroker! and it’s easy if you good with numbers and with people” Then Chris talked to himself,”they look so happy, and why (y in the happyness) can’t I look so happy?

Then in the night he talked to her wife, I will roll for broker trainee program because I’m good with numbers when I’m in schools. His wife replied sarcastically,”oh a broker? why not an astronout?” People will never believe what you are capable of, rather than convince them, make a determination on what you believe. {click to tweet}

The next days, he rolled in for a broker trainee program. The movie show us how he tried to persuade people to take him in. The day before he engaged for an interview, he was being jailed for ticket failure payment. Then, in the interview day, he showed up with his “casual” dress, and miraculously he made it.

He spent 6 months without payment in the trainee program, and have to change place to sleep between these months,  still selling scanners. He has to go through the hard works calling people, persuade them to talk about the products the company has, and that’s not enough time to do, until one day, he just approach the top guy in a company and tried to persuade him.

Zero result, he never get the top person, but he has good networking with other people, and begin to talk to them. Anyway, I know some insurance people is never taking good care of people, they persuade so that they can get the bonus, the commission, it’s a marketing life, no one being blame of. At some points, we need to market ourselves. It’s never easy, and it will take months maybe years for people realize who we are and why they can trusts us.

That Chris Gardner’s DETERMINATION is paid-off, when the “judgement day” came, finally he got a job he wants, and he is very good at it and he has passion at it. This is the part where we call it HAPPINESS.

All of us has the BRAIN, we KNOW what we WANT to do, but in the end what makes difference is HOW FAR we WANT TO GO? How Determined are we? This book gives you a start to embrace your destiny!

Mobile Gaming Development

Mobile games are the great example of successful mobile application which range from simple free games to paid games, of course with a lot of in-app purchases available in the “free games” for players to fasten up their mobile gaming experiences.

In-app purchases itself has been the fundamental sales of any games for decades. It’s mostly found in any games but mostly in the MMORPG games. A massive multiplayer role-playing game is the best way to make profitable in-app sales, because it involves competition among players. Let’s say a website games like Wartune has been embedded their in-app purchase in monthly events, and weekly events, and its getting costly for players to get even catch up with the big shark players of the game.

In-app purchases makes a player stays ahead in the game and also make game challenges easier and satisfactory. But is it going to beat the revenue of game’s platform like PS4, X-Box, and Microsoft? I surely doubt that.

So how much the cost to build a mobile app? Kinvey said at the average of USD 270,000 per app which can be developed in 7 to 12 months. The most expensive mobile games among them are Clown Punching game (USD 300) and Gun Bros Apathy Bear (USD 600), which is totally not worth it to purchase. With that amount of money, you can get few awesome games with lower prize.

With that being said, what are the pros and cons of mobile games compared to other platforms?

Pros :

  1. Despite the fact that they are games in Mobile Phone with lesser graphic than other platform, it is actually still has it’s edge on the excellent graphics and sound, but of course there are bunch of worst graphic games which i rather not say.
  2. It has pretty much simple control for more challenging games, and easy game controls. As such in shooting games like Gangstar New Orleans, it use pretty much perfect auto aim.
  3. They are cheap and low cost but still fun and satisfactory to pass time or to build character over time, such as Blades of Brims and Pro Evolution Soccer Club Manager which you don’t have to be there everyday to do the game but simply do it when you have time.
  4. As many other games, some mobile games can be very addictive, and there the in-app purchases offer is there for you to engage.
  5. It has the multiplayer also, league, and leaderboards which extend the game further which are very great for competitions.

Cons :

  1. Mobile Games are very easy to dismissed by the Developer, I have 4 to 5 games that i play consistently and someday the developers “SADLY” stop its production, meanwhile I already “invested” in the game with my in-app purchases.
  2. Some game difficulty is inconsistent, easy games are great, but going to a dungeon with same level enemies as the characters and still die is unthinkable.
  3. There is some problem with mobile screen for finger sweeps, a fps game with manual shooting is hell for mobile game, but even with other type of games, sometimes we missed the finger placements.
  4. Some levels are repetitive and you have to use many sweep tickets for obtaining a lot of resources for upgrades which pretty much unbelievable took time if you do manual grinding.

So, final words, mobile gaming has low cost development rather than any other platform games, yet it has provide gamers with easy and great value even though the control is not as comfortable as console or PC gaming as an example.

But any video games has very great opportunities to grow no matter what platform they were, and selling video games is one of other thing people do to make money out of this enormous games developments.

Game Is Way More Expensive Than Porn

Game Industry is really going very fast, we notice the changes of graphic so much and it’s getting better and better. Let’s say Horizon Zero Dawn, which is already sold about 3.5 million copies. So, why Guerilla Games eager to build a fascinating world of Horizon Zero Dawn, and with that kind of graphic, how much is this cost?

Horizon Zero Dawn costs around USD 47 million. It’s such a huge amount for a game, while the most expensive porn movie budget is at USD 8 million. Compare to how much the customers of these two kind of industry, porn has gain higher customers than games.

So what makes game producer expenses that much of money? In the case of Guerilla Games, they branded Horizon Zero Dawn as risky game, yet in the end was a big success. It’s part of their brainstorming of “had enough KillZone” idea which then brought them to Horizon.

Anyway, both porn and game is short and only based on story, when it reached the end, you stop playing. Of course, they can inject it with Events to make it more interesting for players to play it again. It’s more interesting with Guerilla Games , a team of 270 people, that make a game outside of their genre in which they have been success with KillZone anyway.

“Pirates” is the american pornographic action-adventure film with the first budget at USD 1 million and the sequel at USD 8 million. Well, Jesse Jane, Teagan Presley and Devon there, who doesn’t want to watch. But porn industry is much tougher than Game Industry. The competition is huge, and the preferences is unbelievably vast, the sacrifice of the people to make things different is unthinkable, take Sasha Grey as the example.

If that is not enough ensuring, let’s compare the most expensive game budget in the history with the most expensive movie budget in mankind history.

We are talking about Grand Theft Auto V. So how much is the cost to build a game complicated as GTA V? It hits roughly at USD 265 million, and it hits USD 1 billion in sales. This game is totally expanding and growing. A lot of gamers still play this game, and this game offers a lot of activities and a badass experiences. Do what you got to do, play as you want to play, be a bad person or a good person, well but mostly bad.

Let’s compare this to the Pirates of Caribbean : On Stranger Tides (2011), it costs around USD 397 million. Do you see huge money here? Yes, but it stops there. Once you done with the movie you stop there. Meanwhile, games are still growing with sales increasing over time. So maintaining that sales, games producers will take their game to another level by increasing, improving everything which will cost them money over time too.

So, my point is that with all these considerations, games are much costly than porn or even blockbuster movies. It’s not how big, it’s how many. You can produce something and done with it, choose to produce small but it grows over time. {click to tweet} Surely, it will be beneficial for small and grows. That’s the reason why game producer take much money and invest in their game so that it will grows over time.

That’s what happen in the game industry where then people even has a job to even test a game in exchange of decent money. Check this out!
