My impression of MGS4....

i am already 15 hours into the game, and now in act 5(final act).All i can say is that MGS4 is the best next-gen game i played to date. I know GTA4 was good, but MGS4 is just better. The gameplay has improved from previous MGS series. Graphics are crazy good looking, better than any other xbox360 or PS3 games.

I haven even played Metal gear online yet because the single campaign is so engaging and i cant stop playing....i played for 7 hours the first day i received my game. I cant remember the last time i play a game that long in a single day. Kojima and his team has created a masterpiece of a game, and MGS4 will be the game of the year. The details in this game is like no other. Every guns shoot and sound different, and bullet holes are different from every guns. So far, this game is perfect for me. The gameplay, music, sound, graphics, story are all top notch stuff. I highly recommend all gamers to try out MGS4, it is that good of a game. Cheers!

Pro Evo 2009 "Announced"

Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has announced that it will release PES 2009 for PLAYSTATION®3, Xbox 360, PC-DVD, PlayStation®2, and PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) this Autumn in Europe.

PES 2009 is the latest installment of the award-winning Pro Evolution Soccer Series, which is known by millions of fans for its superior gameplay and incredible realism. For PES 2009, Konami is already planning a raft of extensive new additions that will further bridge the gap between PES and the real thing. The new game has undergone a stunning graphical update to ensure its players look and move even more like their real-life counterparts. Similarly, all-new options allow users to tailor the game to their own tastes, while new moves, innovative new control elements and key online elements will further the realism of the new game.

I really hope Konami improve the game, because previous PES games only had minimal upgrade etc. PES2008 was the worst of all series in my opinion. The game had poor frame rate, and playing online was a nightmare. The graphics and gameplay only had minimal improvements. I am a huge PES fan, been playing PES series since PES 2. So i hope konami will not disappoint me again. Btw , enjoy first screens of PES 2009!

Finally received my copy of MGS4!!

Well, most people will have already finished the game and playing their second round or playing Metal gear online. However, for me i only received my copy today. Because i choose free shipping, not Fedex. This is why it took 10 days to arrive. i have been waiting for this game for 4 years(since it was originally announced), so waiting for another 10 days wasn't too bad. I haven played it yet though, will post my impression of the game once i start playing. So stay tune!

What is the real Iphone 3G price? No, it is NOT $199.

ok, Apple did announced that Iphone 3G(8GB) will be selling for just $199(RM650). But was it all real? Hell no! First you are forced to sign a 2 years contract with your local Telco. Steve Job did not mention about the raised price of the data plan from $20 to $30 a month for all AT&T Iphone 3G users.

So how did Apple get the iPhone down to $199, while adding 3G and GPS?

Easy, they changed their business model with carriers. Carriers will now give Apple a $200 subsidy instead of a monthly cut of the plan. This means that providers like AT&T will pay more upfront to Apple, but get all of the monthly fees from their customers. So if carrier is paying Apple subsidy of $200 for a phone, this brings Iphone 3G real price of $200+$199 = $399 for Iphone 3G without contract.

Iphone 1st gen vs. Iphone 3G

So can't decide whether to upgrade your current 1st gen Iphone for iphone 3G? i will list the item that has been improved in Iphone 3G.

1) Iphone 3G has both 3G and GPS build-in.
2) Iphone 3G has better speaker (but still mono)
3) Iphone 3G has better battery life
4) Iphone 3G let u use any headphone u want.
5) Iphone 3G has a slightly brighter Screen.

So do u think it is worth the upgrade? for me, is no. Because there are some other major improvements missing such as a better camera, no video recording, no video call, no larger storage, etc. I would just keep my first gen iphone and wait for Iphone generation 3 for now. People who don't own a Iphone yet should really get this new Iphone 3G.

Iphone 2.0 has many new features.....BUT...

ok, the newly annouced Iphone 2.0 has 3G+GPS , slimmer design. But it is missing out on other improvement like no video recording, no MMS, no improve battery, Camera is still only 2MP, no larger HDD(32GB), no camera on the front for videoconferencing. So as u can see the Iphone 2.0 is still missing many features. After thinking, i will just keep my 1st gebn Iphone....and perhaps only upgrade when Iphone 3rd gen is released.

Iphone Gaming Part 3

uper Monkey Ball is complete and will be available for iPhone at the launch of its App Store, Sega's Ethan Einhorn revealed today at Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference today. The game will cost $9.99.The developers have created 110 stages for this game.

Iphone Gaming part 2

Pangea Software's Brian Greenstone took the stage to show two games they have been working on, Enigmo and Cro-Mag Rally, both games that date back to at least 2003 for the developer. Said Grenstone, both games took "three days to get each game up and running -- totally playable."
First up is Enigmo, a physics-based puzzle game that involves getting water into a container using a reflector. The game is extremely CPU intensive, and according to Greenstone the iPhone handles it like a champ.

Next up is Cromag Rally - A 3D cave man racing game in the same vein as Mario Kart, only using the iPhone's motion sensor to turn the entire device into a steering wheel.

Both games were originally OS X based, and porting the games from the Mac to the iPhone platform only took the developers 3 days. Very impressive! Look for both games to be available at $10 a piece on launch.

Gaming on the Iphone Part 1

Digital Legends Entertainment was the last of three game developers presenting at today's Apple keynote. Showing an action-adventure fantasy game is game that has very nice looking graphics which is pretty close to PSP graphics. Kroll" has been shown to the world running on an iPhone
