Top 3 Japanese A/V Gadgets Lost To Time

I’m a very sentimental kinda guy. Rummaging through my things, found my portable CD player that I really loved. The many happy memories of my teenage travels through the countryside with my trusty musical companion was flooded my consciousness, and I was hit with a euphoric sense of nostalgia. Curiously, I wondered if I could breathe new life into it if I replaced the battery pack. I did just that and voila. It worked. I quickly hunted for my favourite Adele CD I got from Speedy’s and played the entire album, reminiscing the days of yonder year. The CD player was a Sony.

walkman japanese invention

Walkmans Of Yester Years

This made me think of the many inventions the Japanese have blessed the world with, and have faded into obsolete oblivion.

The walkman. A portable music device from Sony that has attempted to transform itself with every new wave of tech upgrades. The first model was first made in 1979 and called the  TPS L2. Since then there have been 13 versions right up to the latest version in 2015 with 128 GB if storage. The most iconic models were the 1981 Walkman which played cassette tapes that was used in many movies and tv series of the 80’s and paralleled the boogie era. The later versions had AM FM radio and were splash resistant.

The late 80’s saw them bulk up with CD’s and the competition started to push them off their edge in the 90’s, despite making it smaller with flash storage and rebranding the concept. The iPod, and Zune decimated them. I really miss that nostalgic feel of them. Nowadays, you can’t be caught with them without being insulted as a hipster.

betamax players vhs and video

Betamax Players Was The Thing

The BetaMax. This amazing contraption was made in 1975 and was an instant hit. This was the first device that could record your audio on cassette tape and replay it. The versions after that were able to record video too. It came with its own rig that had your TV, VCR and BetaMax in one combination to record your programs on telly. That being said, it was super expensive. Sadly it faded away and was eventually replaced with TIVO, until the concept of Video on Demand became our primary mode of consumption.

The last contraption was the compact disc. A circular device that harness the power of light to record, transfer and display vast amounts of data, like high quality audio and music files. It gave birth to the DVD and VCD which turned movies into a stunning experience, where you could even make out the wrinkles on your favourite actors faces. That alone ended the acting careers of aging celebrities who kept up the facade with copious amounts of makeup. The Blue Ray Disc further streamlined hollywood with the demand for visually vivid display, making it the status symbol of many families. This also died a slow and natural death, as flash storage and information density technology has made exponential progress.

I still can’t believe there is an entire generation of people that have understanding of the cassette.

Overwatch Japan | Ranked Games Unfair

Competitive matches in videogames. Overwatch, Rainbow Six Siege, Dota 2, and whatever other games that is competitive. But between all these games, there is silver lining to it. Ranked games are (intentionally broken) in somewhat way they come by. Let me explain.

Japanese teens going crazy for the game

Overwatch: Japan Hype

I started playing competitive matches back in late 2016 and it was just the start of season 3 for Overwatch. I was a Reinhardt and an Ana main back then, playing both for casual and competitive. I got almost halfway to platinum (grandmaster as the top tier rank) but I was just got through until nearly to plat. Reasons why was because players in the match group tend to leave matches halfway, and in my case this happens way too often. I stopped playing comp games because it stressed me (most of the time) too much. I did “git gud”. But it was the damage dealers, or the carry “DPS” that disappoints us the most.
A fellow Overwatch, who experiences the same amount of disappointments in-game, and the guy, elaborately puts out more reasons as to why it was the comp games broken, all due to Ubisoft not listening to its fans.

Saali, wrote this in the Blizzard Overwatch forums back in late 2016, stating that one of the many reasons why, most of quit over ranked/competitive gaming.
“If enemy leaves after they are getting wrecked, you don’t get full win, instead you get 1/15 rank up (Like, you win first round and someone leaves, it doesn’t count as full win). You shouldn’t get punished for winning the game too hard. Why do you get punished for winning too hard so someone rage-quits or even if they just dc?” or “if you DC or AFK and get kicked from the ranked game, you can’t get win anymore, even if you win you still get a loss. I have “afked” in 2x games at start of the round and getting kicked and instantly rejoining (only missing like 10 second of game, and then playing another 5-10 minutes and won, only to get a loss while my teammates get win). I was grouped in both of my games I got afk kicked, and both of those I won and got a loss and downrank when my teammates got rankup. So if you dc or get afk kicked, you might just as well just not join the game at all because you get loss no matter what. I don’t think this works as intended at all, and blizzard should fix it soon.” That said, the ranked matches are indeed fixed, but do any of you all think otherwise? Season 10 is in and I’m not even comfortable of going back to rage mode… not to mention all the metas the game has.
