The Most Expensive Game Budget Ever

For the past 18 years or so, Yu Suzuki's Shenmue has been the most expensive game ever developed at US $70 million, making the game the current Guinnes World Record holder. According to Rockstar producer Leslie Benzies, Grand Theft Auto IV just might supplant Shenmue. Over a thousand people worked on the game, and Benzies guestimates GTA IV cost roughly $100 million. I am guessing MGS4 will be one expensive game too.

Arsenal...Lets Dance!!

Tuesday morning Arsenal beaten Derby 6-2. Even though Arsenal wouldn't be wining the EPL this season. Adebayor will still be dancing till the end of the season.
Substitute Emmanuel Adebayor struck his second hat-trick against Derby this season as Arsenal ran riot in the 6-2 victory at Pride Park.

The Gunners, 5-0 winners at The Emirates earlier in the season, made sure of third spot with a rousing second-half performance against the relegated Rams, who moved a step closer to being named the Premier League's worst ever side.

New Alienware Area-51 m will make u cry...

Alienware's latest community effort is AlienNetwork, a "digital channel" which debuted today. To kick off the show with a bang, they revealed that their "fastest ever" 17-inch Area-51 m17x gaming notebook shown back in November is launching today at 5PM (right now, give or take). Versus the m15x, it's got a higher res 1920x1200 screen, NVIDIA GeForce 8800M GTX SLI graphic cards, up to a Core 2 Extreme CPU and the option for two hard drives set up in RAID. It's in all black and if we might say so, just a bit sexier than the m15x.

New Sonic Unleashed game looks really beautiful....

Recent Sonic games for the PS3 and X360 really sucked. There is no good Sonic game since the Dreamcast version of Sonic. I am not a huge Sonic fan, but i truly enjoy the Sonic on the Dreamcast. So this is going to be another new Sonic series for next gen console. I really hope this game does not suck like the previous Sonic games.

Saturday, April 26, 2008 happened again!!!

So yesterday some of my friends drop by at my house to play some games....we always enjoy playing Dead of Alive 4(Fighting game). I turn on my xbox360 and it ran fine. After playing a few rounds.....suddenly my x360 hanged!! i restart the system, and the next thing i knew....3 RED LIGHTS OF DEATH!!! for people who dont know what RROD, 3 red lights of means my x360 is dead and will never start up again.

The worse thing is this is the second time my x360 got RROD...last time it cost me RM250 for repairs and it took 2 months to repair.....My advice to future console buyer....don't ever buy a x360. Buy a Ps3 or wii, it is much safer. I am not planning on spending another RM250 for repairs again.....

At least i still have my PS3 to play....going to buy GTA4 soon too.

Kojima dissapointed with MGS4....

This month's Edge Magazine that Metal Gear Solid series creator, Hideo Kojima, isn't entirely satisfied with his latest creation. Why? That's just the nature of being an artist, especially one as famously exacting as Kojima. Every sequel to the Metal Gear series is another iteration; another re-tuning of an increasingly polished gameplay experience. So, when envisioning the fourth (and final?) chapter in the Metal Gear Solid saga on a brand new and as-yet-untested piece of hardware, Kojima shot for the moon, looking to "create something revolutionary." When confronted with the limitations of the actual PlayStation 3 hardware (it's human after all), Kojima says "we weren't really aware of what the full-spec PS3 offered – we were creating something we couldn't entirely see."

I guess Kojima over estimated PS3 power....PS3 do have the Cell processor...but its graphics card(RSX) has on 256MB Whatever the reasons. MGS4 will still be a revolutionary to me.

Guess who is back? Sexy idol!

Remember my older post? here is the link . This is the so called Sexy idol at Akihabara Japan. After a couple of weeks missing...this week she is back.....and for more ass flashing.

The so called Sexy idol "singer" was back for the hat trick this Sunday, putting her arse out for the third time. This time TV crews were on hand to catch the cheeky act and butt in for a quick interview or two. I think her reason for doing this is to promote her music or something.....talking about free publicity. Anyway, things like this can only happen in Japan. This Sexy idol must really be out of her mind.

David Villa wants to play for Arsenal

Valencia striker David Villa has expressed his desire to play in England, and for Arsenal in particular.

Villa has netted 63 times in just three seasons for Los Che, making him one
of the most feared forwards in world football.

Despite being chased by a host of other clubs, he has said that he would rather play for Arsène Wenger.

He said: "I watch the Premier League a lot and the team I'm most attracted to is definitely Arsenal.

"Their brilliant one and two-touch football and the whole style of rapid counter-attack which dominates the top level of the Premier League now is the one which suits my game best of all.

"I think I'm made to succeed in England but of course it's one thing saying it and quite another getting there and then doing it.

"The Valencia president (Agustin Morera) always told me he wouldn't sell me until summer 2008. If an offer comes in I'm hungry to test myself in England."

Armored Core: For Answer PS3 demo

Just downloaded a new PS3 demo today Armored Core: For Answer. It has been too long since i play an Armor core game. So i wasn't expecting much of this game. First few mission are training missions. After a few training mission..the game put me into a real fight against a giant mecha. Missiles shot at me from every angle. This mecha is so huge i dont even know where to start shooting. It didn't take long for this giant mecha to owned me!! I am a real nood when it comes to Armor core games......

Overall, the graphics are pretty good, fast pace action, powerful weapons, nice huge mecha enemies. And a pretty good storyline. Will be looking forward for the US version of the game.

Received my copy of Folklore from Playasia.

As u know i only own 2 PS3 games and 1 bluray movie, so i don't play my PS3 much. I have been waiting for some hit PS3 games such as Heavenly sword, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Resistance: Fall of Man to have a price fall. So one day i when to have a look at Playasia and found some hit PS3 games such as Folklore, Ridge racer 7, Resistance are selling for only $38.90(RM 124) each. Normal price was $59.90(RM 191)each. So i ordered Folklore seen i read many good things about the game. But i have yet to play it. i will post a review once i finish the game. So stay tune

Soulcalibur IV

Old Character, and also my personal favorite character in the series. Nightmare!!

Scheherazade is one of the all-new characters on Soulcalibur IV's roster.

And Master Yoda the Special Character in the game(Only on XBOX360)

Here is Darth Vader(Only on the PS3)

Soulcalibur IV for the Ps3 and Xbox360 offers new and old characters. But the 2 speacial character in the game will be Master Yoda and Darth Vader!! But sadly, you will only get to play with either Vader or Yoda unless in are planning to but both the x360 and PS3 version of the game. Yoda is an Xbox 360 exclusive, while Darth Vader will appear only on PlayStation 3. The game also offers new modes and new combat system with new combo, some new elements in the life-bar displays etc. Stay tune for more information in the coming months.

Super cool IPod touch case, which also acts as a charger.

This cool case is called the radJacket CHARGE, which is pretty cool, as iPod cases go. As well as keeping your Pretty safe from keys, bag- and pocket-umska, the case acts as a charger, giving your iPod Touch a whopping 46 hours of music, 12 of video and 10 of web browsing, on just a three-hour charge.

Sony Shows Off 0.3mm-Thick OLED Display; Doesn't Get Much Thinner Than That

Sony is working on a new 11-inch OLED, one that's 10 times thinner than its expensive predecessor. With a 960x540 resolution, this panel has very similar specifications to the XEL-1, but it's just a mere 0.3mm thick. We could see Sony using the OLED for future handphones, PDA, and of course the next generation PSP2.

Sharp-Willcom D4 UMPC Has Intel Atom Centrino, Windows Vista Too

Sharp-Willcom's new D4 WS016SH UMPC is apparently the first of its type to have the new Atom Centrino fizzing away inside. That 1.3GHz Atom Z520 is matched with a five-inch LED back-lit 1024 x 600 touchscreen, 1GB of memory, a 40GB drive, 2 megapixel camera, wi-fi and Bluetooth 2.0 EDR. If that sounds like a lot in a tiny package then you'll like this: it runs Windows Vista Home Premium. It packs in a QWERTY keyboard and weighs just one pound. It's configured to use Japan's PHS system for phone calling, apparently coming with an external bluetooth phone device that'll let you place calls over the PHS network. It also appears to have a built-in one-seg TV tuner, and memory expansion through a microSD slot. It's Japan-only for now, due to that PHS system, and costs around $1,280.
