Beware of the Azrael imposter and clone


someone is acting as "ME"
dont entertain them.. its not me!!
and pls dont give anything. if they asked for something..

it happened last convention.
this was reported to me by a friend and also the situation was seen in a public message board.

there's this guy who acted as me "Azrael" and he told to some convention attendees that he is "azrael" and he is the main organizer of the event.

and for that he even gave a tour to the attendees, showing all the booths and explaining all the activities of the event.

as the attendee said, that he encounter the "false Azrael" and said that he was approached and as a proof saw me taking pictures during the event.


- you see its impossible for me to give a tour to any person, coz that time I was with my girlfriend the whole day in that event and I only talk to people who i know, or talk to people who knows me.and yes i took photos of the event., and maybe this false guy used me and to take advantage, and wants to drop a bad blood to the community in my own name.

the case is that the convention attendee who encountered the "false Azrael", personally doesn't know me. and this False Azrael took the advantage in fooling people and acting as "ME"

-another case, I didn't claim myself ever as the main organizer of UP AME Anime Fair, I have an ID with a label "PERFORMER" coz that time me and my band are performers in that event and also im heading my group Art Group.

if you ever encounter some imposter or clone of Azrael, its best to approach someone who knows me to confirm if it is me or not.

or try to snap a photo of the imposter/clone so that we can Identify the culprit.


- this is the 3rd case reported happened after 4 years of the 1st case reported.

if you have a report or encountered the guy pls email me at azrael@gmail.com

thanks!

and for some serious news in the Game industry!

2004 Independent Game of the Year

Congratulations to Anino Entertainment and its team!


Number 6 - Anito: Defend a Land Enraged

Released just after our deadline for the 2003 awards Anito found itself as one of the best games of 2004. Anito isn't your typical RPG game. There certainly is some hack and slash to the story, but the game is much more adventurous then that. Instead of simply having random monsters always walking about that you run around and kill, the game focuses more on providing a solid storyline, and it does so with stellar results. Instead of just wandering about killing things, in Anito you become deeply involved in an adventure.

The most interesting thing about this adventure is that there are actually two completely different adventures in the game. Players can play as Agila, the son of the missing tribal leader, or his sister Maya. In most games, choosing your gender at the beginning of the game is something to do for fun. It may make the game play differently, but it doesn't really affect the game all that much. In Anito, choosing Agila or Maya will completely alter the game that players play. Each character has a completely different set of tasks to undertake as they travel through the land. The storyline is one with two main characters instead of one.

First Four Days


its Jan 1 and F*ck...im working and doing lots of stuff for the upcoming convention and for my latest gig. my blood is running like thunder and i think the unstoppable urge in making a deep punch for the upcoming event G2 Games and Gadget Show and for the Magazine gig.

Been organizing some meetings and it will until Jan 4, and another BIG convention is coming up on February 2005. This is the 2 most Biggest convention I ever involved..one Gaming con and an Anime con...

this is the best of the best ...hmm..close to that best..but im still have this dream convention and it will top all conventions in the Philippines, think of originality with the spirit of True Pinoy. Toycon 2004 is one example and expect more of my blood sprinkeled in one of these events.....my blood....means success...

Im glad that I have a team partner..thanks to RG Guanzon for being the best partner in this pop culture, it seems that Im having this idea of doing some more events, but i already made a promise to quit for a moment after the Feb big event, well..i dont know..but i have to focus more on college and the magazine gig....but hey..maybe soon after college il be back and in full gear in events organizing... but still it depends if my USA Visa is approved...awwww...dont worry il be back after 6 months if ever that happens.

such a long entry...im warming up for tomorrow and i want my readers to be informed on what am I doing... damn it! im not that a writer...im not that too good to be writer..i dont want to be writer...but im one of those kids who wants to be writer, I wish i taken up those communication course when i'm in college, im a little bit ashamed of myself coz im the only guy who isn't that too very proficient English or in writing, and people around me are the experts..thats why I push myself sometimes to improve this writing and communication skills, so that i wont be hanging out and tagged again for having a bad grammar...geez..I really hate my Boss back in magazine of a broadcasting giant. i know she shuts up, but sometimes continues to attack from behind...life is like that..even now i can hear some stories of some back stabbing he/she did years ago.

been almost 7 years in the industry and im glad that someone already notice my works..my own company...well sort of...Omake Omake News Philippines is included as co-organizer of the event G2 Games and Gadget Show, thanks to the organizer MMOG for trusting me on our event. Its the 2nd time i saw my logo in their sponsors..and Im surprised that below my logo is a tagline included that it says "The Anime-Comic Alternative Pop Culture News Maker in the Philippines", whoooaa! now i have to work on that website....

to all my readers here in Azrael's Merryland, thank you so much for the humongous support, thanks for the emails, messages, tags, love mails, hate mails, txtmate invites, friendster invites, EB invites, SEB invites (sorry im not allowed for this), party invites, freebie invites, overnight invites, and bday invites...and more.....whew...

2005 will be blast...for Azrael's Merryland will invade the MAGAZINE WORLD !!!!!! just brace yourselves....be afraid...be very afraid...

are you willing to buy a magazine with a 2-page article of Azrael's Merryland?, written by me !!! of course...who else will write that.

expect more adventures,stories and educational tour in that 2 page feature every month....coming this year 2005.
