Oh wow, I passed 5 million pageviews on here. 14 year old me would have been so excited to see that.

10 years really is a long time. I went from making really crappy animations to huge Steam games.
I'm still using Flash after all that time too. :D

Oh wow, I passed 5 million pageviews on here. 14 year old me would have been so excited to see that.

10 years really is a long time. I went from making really crappy animations to huge Steam games.

Day 1: Flew over to Helsinki, with a change of planes in Copenhagen. Copenhagen airport was nice, with wooden floors and stuff. I like wood. It was nice not flying Ryanair for once, but also surprisingly expensive considering Finland isn’t that far from the UK. Read a lot of “How to Stop Worrying” by Dale Carnegie. It’s an okay book. I feel like I don’t have that much to learn from it, but I like the author. It might be nice to have a reference if my life ever somehow falls apart.

We got picked up from the airport by one of Ronja’s buddies, and he drove us around town a bit. We’re staying in Ronja’s mum’s  (she’s away) apartment for the duration of the trip.

First impression of Helsinki was that buildings are kind of plain looking, and that there’s tons of trees and parks and green stuff. It’s not a very impressive city, but instead very nature-y.

Day 2: We walked to Seurasaari, which is a little island park in Helsinki, and relaxed with beer and snacks. Weather was nice and it was really tranquil. Met up with some more of Ronja’s buddies. The island had some old traditional wooden Finnish farm buildings on it too. There was a lot of Asian tourists there. Asians like old wooden buildings I guess.

Day 3: Visited the city center and ate lunch at a park with one of Ronja’s hot friends (Let’s call her Friend A). Walked around some shopping centers, and bought some Amiibos (!!!) cause they seem to be much easier to buy for reasonable prices in shops here. Got Bowser jr and Jigglypuff btw. Went clothes shopping afterwards. Ronja got a pile of bras, and I got to watch her try them on (!!!). In return, we dressed me up sharply at a fancy men’s clothing store, which Friend A works at. Apparently I look okay when I wear clothes that actually fit me properly. As a nerd, serious clothes shopping is strange to me. Later we had burgers at some American themed placed. We walked home and were exhausted. It was a fun day.

Day 4: It was Ronja’s birthday! We took over a friend’s apartment and made cake and pizza and I helped a tiny bit. The party was cool. Ronja has real life friends unlike me, and 20-odd people showed up. They were all quite chill and friendly. We just got drunk and talked about crap for hours. Afterwards we went to an Irish themed nightclub and it was pretty lame and crowded. I was displeased and complained a lot. I got a lot of piss on me in the bathroom. Ronja and I argued a bit about how annoying she is when she’s drunk (especially since she bought me a McDonald’s, and I hate McDonald’s), but then it was fine and everything was good.

Day 5: We visited Helsinki’s island fortress! It wasn’t much of a fortress, as it was mostly in ruins, but it had some awesome cannons and cave-like bunkers to explore! It was also incredibly windy there, and the ferry ride to the island gives a great view of Helsinki’s seaside.

Day 6: We went to Turku (I hear it’s the asshole of Finland) to stay with one of Ronja’s childhood friends (Let’s call him Friend B) for his birthday celebrations. He drove us over. The weather was really nice for a road trip. When we got there we did loads of food shopping, and had a fancy-ish lunch and dinner and some drinks. Friend B has a huge alcohol collection, and I got to try some interesting drinks, like banana liquor, and also some horrible traditional Finnish thing.

Day 7: It was Friend B’s birthday! We had lots of cake in the morning. No party, but his girlfriend hung out with us too. We went sightseeing around Turku, seeing some churches, the river, and the university. One modern church stood out, it had a very unique aesthetic to it and was quite colorful, while the others were quite traditional. We went for dinner at a viking themed restaurant called Harald! (Me and Friend B also look quite viking-ish) They had all sorts of animal skins up and the staff were dressed like viking villagers. The food names on the menu were amusing and over-the-top (Pork from Valhalla’s Feast, etc). Food was tasty, but we didn’t get the most interesting stuff (sword skewered stuff, etc) cause it was expensive. We were super full but still had some more cake later when we got home.

Day 8: We ate lots of BBQ meat and then drove back to Helsinki and rested.

Day 10: Ronja caught up with her godmother and spent some more time with her friends. Boring.

Day 11:  We and a bunch of buddies went to a cabin in the woods, by one of Finland’s many lakes! Ronja made it sound incredibly primitive, like just a shack, but I was glad that it actually had some facilities, like light and a fridge! No running water though! That was quite unpleasant. Anyway, we BBQ’d some food, picked some blueberries, spent some time in  the sauna, and went swimming! Woop! Also, I think I’m mosquito proof. They don’t seem to bite me. (they shredded my brother in Sweden, but I was fine).

Nature is nice, but I still prefer the comforts of the city. The best example of the horrors we faced was when we had to escort Ronja’s crippled friend to the bathroom at night. (Let’s call her friend C, she broke her leg a few weeks ago) Friend C was incredibly drunk, and was terrified to go out back into the toilet shack. Ronja had to follow her with a flashlight, and I had to stand guard in the rain.

We only stayed one night. I don’t think I would survive much more than that. It was fun though.

Day 13: We didn’t start with much plans, but while walking past Helsinki’s theme park we decided to get all-day tickets. I actually didn’t expect much for some reason, but the theme park was much better than anything we had in Scotland. They had seven rollercoasters in total, all of which were at least moderately exciting, with some rather extreme ones too. This yellow rollercoaster in particular was pretty hardcore. That was probably the scariest ride I’ve been on so far, and Ronja was practically in tears, even though she’s been on it before. You spend a lot of time upside down, and there’s not much holding you in your seat – just a restraint around your waist. The weather turned out quite nice and the queues for most rides were quite short, so we got through a lot of rides and stayed a long time. Apart from rollercoasters, the river rapids and freefall towers were also a lot of fun. I definitely need to visit theme parks more often, as I think it’s been seven years since I’ve last been and they’re a lot of fun.

Day 14: Had a nice dinner with Ronja and her lady friends. They brought their boyfriends, so it was like a triple date!

Day 16: Went home. Brought some cloudberry liqueur and Finnish snacks for people. Didn’t bring any of those salty sweets though. I hate those.

The end.

Hey guys, I’m going to Finland with Ronja for a while. So see ya’ll later.
Mostly I’ll just be meeting all her friends and seeing stuff around Helsinki. I’ll be back at the end of the month.

In other news, president of Nintendo Satoru Iwata passed away.
Dude led the development of the Wii and DS, and also did a lot of programming work on early Kirby and Pokemon games. He’s done a lot for gaming and will be missed. ):

Hey, dunno if you heard about this already, but I remember you also being a Nintendo fan, so I wanted to share this news with you, maybe help spread the news overall...…

Hey! I know you from Newgrounds! I didn't even know you had a DA. :D

Natalie -> Wizard + Sorceress or Bard

Matt -> Tachi + Katar

Anna -> Ranger + Bard or Guardian

Lance -> Gunslinger + Duelist or Grenadier

That's how their class would be if they're in Aura Kingdom. :P

Hello, I have an idea for you: Put group attacks in EBF5.
For example: a spell using the powers of all members of the group.
Keep your great work :D
zommok Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2015
Hey i remember your videos on newgrounds doing the black mages attack videos and i decided to see them again on nostaglia and i gotta say man im glad to see you're still doing art! I know its a long awaited 9 year thing but keep up the good work!
KupoGames Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2015
Thanks! :D
commandergrunt Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2015
hey, don't know if you read comments/suggestions much on here, but i was thinking it'd be great that when you decide to work on EBF5, Lance's guns instead are "gunblades", i kinda think it'd work better and seeing lots of different gunblade designs from you would be cool.

I heard that you are animating the final boss of BH2 can't wait for the final product and not to be a bugger but have you played spore

Are you working on a new project/game ?
I love all your games, I played all of them 
Freezicle24 Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2015  Student General Artist
Did you also have trouble with AddEventListeners and RemoveEventListeners when you were moving on to AS3 cause I'm having trouble it seems like if you don't remove all event listeners before going to a different frame (of the stage) it messes things up.

If you did too what did you do?
KupoGames Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2015
With AS3 you really shouldn't put any complicated code into frames.
Stick it in a class file and it'll be easier to manage.

Anyone knows, how do I defeat the mecha in the first game? I'm doing an epic difficulty marathon, and I could do all the games except EBF 1 because of him. I get him down to almost red, and then I lose. :( (Sad)

Hey Kupo, who do you main in sm4sh?
Sylphdrake Featured By Owner May 10, 2015  Student General Artist
Love your drawing style :)
But wait. If final bosses of your games are more powerful each game.. (If we don't count Goku) Then..what is stronger than Godcat?! O_O
Nefer007 Featured By Owner May 12, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
Goku. Remember, in canon Goku's been the only one able to kill Matt even once. (Assuming you somehow played THE PERFECT GAME and NOBODY DIED, of course)
Sylphdrake Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2015  Student General Artist
I never got to the end of the first game thanks to the mecha. I guess i should play on easier difficulty.
