UPLB Band Segatron Pays Tribute to Alodia Gosiengfiao with Song “Hey Hey Alodia”

People nowadays have always said how romantically sweet (yes, that's an exaggeration) it is when a guy pens a song for a girl.

There’s a band in UPLB (University of the Philippines Los Banos) that’s fanboying over famoust Filipina cosplayer Alodia Gosiengfiao. The title of their song is “Hey Hey Alodia” and its got a perfect mix of rock and rhythm and the singer sings just like another famour rocker geek – Coheed and Cambria‘s Claudio Sanchez. It was written and recorded by Segatron main man Silver Alcabasa with the help of guitarist Al Santillan as a tribute to the popular celebrity.

“Like any other boy who first saw her during adolescence, I really am a genuine Alodia fan,” explained the 20 year-old Alcabasa. “The song pretty much sums up all of us (fans). Haha!”

The video for “Hey Hey Alodia!” which was uploaded by Alcabasa on the night of January 15, 2012, is a simple slideshow of photos of Gosiengfiao layered over with the lyrics. The text on the description box for the Coheed and Cambria reminiscent (save for the autotune) song simply read “Hope this song reaches Alodia. OH INTERNET HELP ME!!!”

And reach the “Cosplay Queen” it did. At around 2:08 p.m. on Monday (January 16, 2012), Gosiengfiao herself shared the link to the video on her Facebook fanpage and Twitter account with a message that read “Wow!! An awesome original song by Segatron! LSS! Thank you guys!”

It was apparently an instant hit with fans, based on the comments YouTube users posted on the video page.


Another user simply said, “kudos to the guys who make the song.”

Several others were one in saying that a real music video, with Gosiengfiao herself in it, be done for the song.

“Hey! Hey! Alodia” has, at the time of this writing, already garnered 27,517 views on YouTube in a matter of only four days.

“Honestly, hindi talaga namin in-expect ‘yan. It was intended to be just another Segatron song,” revealed Alcabasa, who is a first year music production student at the De La Salle-College of St. Benilde. “Ang wild, putek! Parang overnight lang. ‘Pag log-in ko the very next day, BAM! Hail the Internet!”

When asked what the band plans to do next, Alcabasa had this to say: “A lot of people have been asking for a music video featuring Alodia herself. Let’s just wait and see what happens.”

With one wish crossed off the list, Alcabasa and the rest of Segatron are yet again waiting for another one to hopefully come true.

This time, however, the band won’t be wishing alone

Razer's Project Fiona: A Tablet for PC Gamers

Razer--generally known for its gaming peripherals--is working on a tablet called Project Fiona. Let's just file this under "wholly unexpected."

With smartphones and tablets becoming so popular, and more apps available than you can shake a stick at, mobile gaming is becoming an increasingly lucrative market. However, the problem is that most of the games being played on tablets and smartphones are of the casual variety. The mobile industry might have advanced to the point where we have quad-core phones and tablets, but hardcore PC gamers don't want to play Cut the Rope or Angry Birds.

At CES this week, peripheral maker Razer unveiled a concept that aims to change the minds of gamers unwilling to game on the go. Powered by Intel's Core i7 CPU, the tablet is dubbed 'Project Fiona' and is designed to play the most popular PC games of today with "an intuitive control setup for a phenomenal on-the-go gaming experience." Razer says that as a result of a partnership with Intel, Project Fiona is more akin to a fully functioning PC.

New Concept Makes Sense

Razer aims to adopt the same approach with Project Fiona--hence the code name, instead of a proper moniker. But where the Switchblade left me confused, Fiona makes a tantalizing amount of sense.

First, the hardware: Details are scant, largely because the prototype exists in something of a nebulous state. When I spoke with Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan late last week I was told that Fiona will be packing a Core-i7 Ivy Bridge CPU, a 1280-by-800 pixel resolution, and will support Windows 8.

The device will have a multi-touch screen, THX-certified speakers, force feedback support (with vibration motors in those controller arms), front- and rear-facing cameras, and a battery life akin to what you might expect from an Ultrabook, though we should likely lop an hour or two off for a focus on gaming.

Touchscreen Benefits

And then there’s the touchscreen. Like it or not, touch is becoming an increasingly important part of the modern computing experience. Windows 8 only makes the issue that much more pressing, with an interface wholly designed around you getting your hands on with your PC.

Razer's Gamble

As more touchscreen-equipped PCs find their way into our homes, it stands to reason that developers will see the light. And I’m willing to bet you’ll be hard pressed to find a PC that’s not an All-in-One in the next few years.

Razer is showing its cards early, but it’s a gamble the company is hoping will pay off. The logic is sound, and while the final product will ultimately depend on its performance, it’s an idea whose time has come.

"Project Fiona’s combination of high performance Intel-based gaming hardware and innovative tablet design is specifically focused for PC gamers. It will unleash the PC gamer to play their existing and future high-end games in one of the most exciting new form factors – a tablet," said Brad Graff, Director of Partner Marketing at Intel's Netbook & Tablet Group.

Razer didn't mention anything about a price or availability (considering Project Fiona is technically still just a concept, that's not surprising). However, the company did say that developer units will be made available soon, so this one may actually make it into production. Fingers crossed it does, and when that happens, it doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

Dragon Nest Swordmaster Heraldry Plates Guide

As requested by our friend Henry, here is a guide for all Dragon Nest Swordmasters who need help with the type of heraldry they should use for their character.

Just to remind everyone, Heraldries are not stackable. There are key names that heraldries have that may be different grades or levels. Even if you find them having different grades or levels, you cannot use the same type at all. When making a heraldry set, make sure to have the highest grade and level of whatever type of heraldry you want and pick out of the many types which ones you prefer.

There are more types of heraldries that here are slots, and your heraldry build will depend on your decision making skills in regards to that. Heraldry (and any item for that matter) range in rarity. Rarity is the grade heraldry comes in. The lowest grade is C which has the color green. The highest grade is A which is orange, B is blue.

Firstly, let’s talk about Stats-based Heraldry. The most important few plates would be
  1. Fatal - Increases your Critical Chance by a certain amount. I believe all attack classes will use this plate as one of their 8 choices. Critical ignores defense, so that is what makes Critical so important. Magic SM need high critical chance to be effective.
  2. Physical Attack/Magic Attack - Depending on the build you are using for your Swordmaster, pick one of them. Thisamplifies your attack stat by a huge margin. Being Hybrid, you can choose to use them both at the same time, but you would have to sacrifice another Heraldry for it.
  3. HP - Increases your HP by a certain amount. Paladin with the Avatar skill can get his HP up to a very high amount, and this amount can be used to increase the amount of heal you do with your Heal skill. When you are using HP/Vitality equips, this plate will increase your HP by a lot more.
  4. Bear/Wisdom – Increases your Strength/Intelligence Stat by a certain amount. Depending on whether you are going for Moon Lord or Gladiator, pick either one or both of them. Using this will increase your physical and/or magic attack by a good margin.
Subsequently, these are the possible plates that I would pick.
  1. Vibrancy - Increases MP regeneration. Depends on your character if you have sufficient MP regeneration or not.
  2. Vitality - Increases your Vitality Stat by a certain amount. This would increase a little of your HP and Defense, UNLESS you are using equipment that boost Vitality by a huge margin. Then, this plate will increase your HP by a huge margin.
  3. Undaunting – Increases your Paralyze Resistance Stat by a certain amount. This reduces the chance of you getting hit to a state in which you won’t be able to move for a slight duration
When you are really rich, try to get yourself a 3-stat Heraldry Plate. If you have ever gotten one in CBT, you would have seen a Stat Heraldry giving you a random additional stat in it. When a good additional stat is imbued within a good Heraldry Plate, it would usually cost a bomb. Either use it, or sell it for gold!

As for Skill Plates, they are
  1. Moon Light Splinter – Must-have for Magic Swordmasters. Pick the damage increase choice in the Heraldry Production. The cooldown for this skill is only 9 seconds! You will be able spamming this almost the whole time. In Time Acceleration mode, after using this skill once, you will be able to use MLS again in about than 1 second.
  2. Crescent Cleave – Must-have for Magic Swordmasters. Pick the damage increase choice in the Heraldry Production. As mentioned before, 5 waves travelling through huge mobs will give a huge increase in DPS.
  3. Half Moon Slash – Must-have for Magic Swordmasters. Pick the decrease cast time choice in the Heraldry Production. Also mentioned before, this skill has a long cast time so it is better to get this heraldry to prevent from getting interrupted easily.
  4. Dash – Pick the damage reduction when dashing forward choice in the Heraldry Production. In case you don’t know, you can use tumble to avoid damage. You are invulnerable during the tumble animation so that is why in most videos, you see players using tumble whenever they will get damaged. Personally, I have not tried this heraldry yet but from what people say, when you are getting hit while dashing forward, the damage is reduced by a certain %. If I did not remember wrongly, it is either 40% or 60%.
  5. Line Drive – For this skill, it depends on whether you want higher damage or faster cool down for the heraldry choice. If you’re a physical SM, spamming physical skills will be your main priority. Magic skills will be more on crowd control. Maybe the decrease cool down choice is better but I think most people choose the damage increase one.
