Me, Facebook and Samseng

November 28, 2007 by Galvin Tan in Daily Rants, Technology with 12 Comments


Ok, I admit. I’ve got a new addiction and that’s the reason why I haven’t been blogging for more than a month now.

Months ago I’ve gotten to know about Facebook. It’s yet another social networking site and it way way much cooler than any of the social network sites. God knows when was the last time I checked my Friendster account.

For those who doesn’t know about Facebook, go read about it here. For those who already have an account in Facebook, I guess you will understand why I’m so hooked into this website.

It’s a simple website, a plain platform where you can enter your biodata and other things you enjoy doing. Unlike Friendster or any other social networking sites, Facebook has got thousands and thousands of third party add-on applications that you can add with just a click of a button.

There are quizzes, maps, forums, chatrooms, groups, event calendars, photo albums, tools, group activity applications like Poke, SuperPoke and Advanced Poke. Don’t ask me why, I’m just another ‘poke’ victim. The best part of Facebook is the games applications. There are thousands of games that you can be easily installed with just a click of a button. From brainiac games like Sudoku to dumb-blonde boring games such as ‘Decorate My Room’, it’s pretty much amazing why so many people are hooked into it. Screw the Vampire, Zombie, Slayer and Werewolf games. The game that got me hooked so badly into Facebook now is the Fighters’ Club game.

FC



Fighters’ Club is a very simple and yet exciting game. You begin with picking fights with your friends. You can have them beat up by Chuck Norris, Shaft or Clint Eastwood. That’s for the beginners. If you’re a seasoned player and you’ve been into this game for quite awhile, you can join a Fighters’ Club (FC) gang or clan. Yes, they do have gangs in Fighters’ Club. LOL

When I started playing FC about 3 months ago. I always got picked by my friends. Worst of all, my personal friends will support against me and make me lose in the fight. If you win, you gain some FC money and reputation (respect). If you lose, you’ll be a ‘bank’. A ‘bank’ is a common term we use in FC to identify an easy prey or target. He/she could be a inactive player or a just a another loser without any friends… NOT! That’s because I was that loser once. But not anymore!

After a month into that game, I finally got the hang of it and started to gain my reputation and money. I’ve even form my own gang called ‘VR Samseng’. Read as We Are Samseng, we can be easily identified in FC world as <<VRS>>. At first, it was myself with a couple of friends from Infinity Domain, a cyber cafe that I frequent for DOTA. Then we got to know more friends from FC and they eventually join our gang. Today, VRS is one of the ‘Toughest Gang’ in FC world and we fight for friends and fellow countrymen. Yes, the kwailos in FC always like to bully us then, but now… muahahahahahahah.

We even have an alliance with 2 other local gangs and now we’re the strongest alliance in FC. Some people may say, “Yea yea, so what? FC is for kids. It’s so lame!” Well, it could be lame but it’s fun. It’s a game for the whole family. We even have father, mother, daughter and son who are into FC too. The best part about FC is that I get to know and meet more new friends. We even had a gathering lately.

The only down side to this game is that it’s taking away too much time. That’s why I haven’t been blogging for awhile. So the next time you decided to install Fighters’ Club on Facebook, do pop by the FC world and meet The Samsengs! LOL

Remember, <<VRS>> We Rox Your Sox !!

Hey mate, Yeah FC is well addictive.

I have seen the rise of VRS and you are an impressive bunch of jumpers, (last minute supporters) I cant believe you've actually got people together, face to face to chat and discuss it!

Amazing, well done
