Xbox 360 games galore

Wahooo there are so many good games that came out this month of October. I hope every month is like this! Hehehe. Obviously its because of the upcoming holiday season. Here are some games that I playing right now and some games that Im going to buy when I get back to Manila.

NBA 2K9 ----
I like it A LOT! A LOT! I am an avid NBA fan and having this game is a must for me. Commentators, player movements, dunks, sounds are all superior. There is only one thing I dont like. AI is sooo damn good. Once you leave a player open even if its only a bench player they will swish it. Opponents will always have a big run and they will sink every shot. And im only playing the third to the highest level of difficulty. I have mastered NBA 08 AI and this one AI is much much better. I play it more and Ill see if I can adjust. If not then I'll just lessen the difficulty level. Hehe.

Dead Space----
Horror shit. This game scares the hell out of me. Very nice graphics and superb sound, making the game scarier. The monsters in the game are very twisted and sickening. You kill them by dismembering its hands or feet. Dont play with the lights out. Gore galore! Difficulty is up there. A must buy for horror genre fans out there.
video

Pure------
Quad bike racing arcade style. I like. No simulation here. Its pure adrenalin, jump, air, and severe wipeouts. You get to upgrade your quadbike and honestly I dont see the point. I dont feel the upgrade but the physical appeal of the upgrades is what makes it worthwhile. Graphics and sounds are great!

Brothere in Arms- Hells Highway----
WWII galore. You have teammates to help you. AI is at its best. If you dont take cover, you will die for sure. Story is very engaging. You will love the characters. If you are a fan of first person shooting game then you have to add this to your collection.

Saints Row 2----
Havent played it yet but the video review in IGN makes this promising.

Star Wars The Force Unleashed-----
The force is strong in this one... I have only played the first stage of the game and it looks superb. You get to swing you light saber and use the force on all the storm troppers out there. Hahaha.

Fallout 3-----
Will buy i once in manila

Far Cry 2-----
Another First person shooter that deserves my (and my borthers) attention. Will also buy when I get back.


All that for just a month is too much for some... but not for me! hahaha.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 incoming this November

At last after a long wait this phone will be available in November. If you want a qwerty phone I think you should consider this. The only drawback i think is that its battery life only last for 2 days. With heavy usage I think that will go down further. The upside is its wonderful display, its 512rom and 256 ram. Thats wow for a phone.

Here are some pictures:

Bny, mukang ok ba to? Whats your opinion?

NBA new season is Here!

WOW NBA is here. TOday we got 3 games... one is being shown on Bastketball TV. Yes its back and I predict that the teams to beat are: Boston and Orlando for the East and Los Angeles, Houston, and maybe Phoenix for the West. I hope Houston gets a little farther in the playoffs than the first round for the sake of McGrady and Yao Ming or else a big shuffle will happen in the future. The addition of Ron Artest wil surely help them. Lets just pray that the Big Three of Houston will stay healthy this whole season.

i780 crash and restoring data all over again

My i780 crashed on me yesterday. The finger mouse disappeared and the touchscreen became unresponsive. I backed it up via sprite backup software and did a hard reset. My first hard reset for my i780. After my hard reset i restored my backup data and lo and behold... the problem was still there. And to make matters worst is that all the .exe file stopped working. I was very disappointed with sprite backup because it did not do what it should have done. Yes it backed up the installed softwares but all the shortcuts became disassociated with its exes. Damn! So I did what i dreaded the most-- installing all my apps all over again. First, I backed up again my phone but now I only backed up my contact and messages. Did a softreset and then reloaded my contacts and messages. Atleast sprite restored that. I lost all my games and some of my not-so-important apps because im lazy to install all of them. I might do that some other time.

I thought I had to install all my apps all over again when the new 6.1 update is released. Boy was i wrong. Moral of the story is dont thinker with your gadgets too much. Hehe. But i cant help it.

update: it was NOT Sprite caused my exe problems but a app called Clear Temp. It supposed to erase all my temporary internet files but it also erased all the registry associated with all the apps I installed.

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to my bro in law. My first birthday greeting in my blog. If I get a hang of it, there will be more to come.

PSP-3000 screen problem...OUCH!

Ahh, the PSP-3000. The we’ve been lusting over is now out in wild and just waiting to show you games and movies with stunning and vivid clarity. Right? Umm, not so much it would seem. Early adopters are reporting horrible interlacing issues during both game play and video playback. As seen pretty clearly in the image above, movement is basically death to the PSP-3000 display. Jagged edges, scan lines and insane pixelation spoil the honeymoon pretty quickly and are resulting in some pretty pissed gamers. Apparently disabling the Wide Color Space option helps to some extent but it doesn’t eliminate the issue completely. The worst part? Sony has reportedly confirmed the issue, claimed it is in fact not an issue at all and stated that it will not be addressed in any software updates as it is a hardware matter. Mmm. PSP-4000 anyone?

Long live my PsP-1000! Hehehe.

Short Thoughts

If i was american i would vote for Obama because of the debate

Another PNP general gets caught having 6.9 million pesos. Damn. Corruption Incorporated! And we wonder why we cant stop the rebels down south. Simple equation. War=Money=Money in their pocket=having 105,000 Euros on a junket paid by simple tax payers.

And to rub salt to injury, PNP leadership is covering it all up. If the PNP leadership explanation is true then i have four legs.

Oil companies are losing money and they cant afford to drop oil prices. Lets see their end year financial statements. If they dont make atleast a BILLION peso in pofits then i have four legs.

The Man Rules - Spam worth posting

The Man Rules-------------------
At last a guy has taken the time to write this all down




Finally , the guys' side of the story.
We always hear ' the rules'
From the female side.



Now here are the rules from the male side.


These are our rules!
Please note.. these are all numbered '1 '
ON PURPOSE!



1. Men are NOT mind readers.

1. Learn to work the toilet seat.
You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down.
We need it up, you need it down.
You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it
down.

1. Sunday sports It's like the full moon
or the changing of the tides.
Let it be.

1. Crying is blackmail.

1. Ask for what you want.
Let us be clear on this one:
Subtle hints do not work!
Strong hints do not work!
Obvious hints do not work!
Just say it!

1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost
every
question.

1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving
it.
That's what we do.
Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an
argument.

In fact, all comments become Null and void after 7 Days.

1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and
one of
the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one

1. You can either ask us to do something
Or tell us how you want it done.
Not both.
If you already know best how to do it, just do it
yourself.

1. Whenever possible, Please say whatever you have to say
during
commercials..

1. Christopher Columbus did NOT need directions and
neither do
we.

1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default
settings.
Peach, for example, is a fruit, not A color. Pumpkin is
also a
fruit.
We have no idea what mauve is.

1. If it itches, it will be scratched.
We do that.

1. If we ask what is wrong and you say 'nothing,'
We will act
like nothing's wrong.
We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the
hassle.

1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to,
Expect an answer you don't want to hear.

1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you
wear is
fine... Really .

1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless
you are
prepared to discuss such topics as baseball, golf or
Hunting.

1. You have enough clothes.

1. You have too many shoes.

1. I am in shape. Round IS a shape!

1. Thank you for reading this.
Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight;


But did you know men really don't mind that? It's
like camping.

Pass this to as many men as you can -
to give them a laugh.

Pass this to as many women as you can -

to give them a bigger laugh.

Another Ateneo vs La Salle letter.

Got this from a friends blog. I got a laugh out of it so im reposting it here. Enjoy...

Deer Blog,
Sabi ni Kotz Frans nung Monday, we are backed in a corners kaya kailangan meron kaming bagong gameplan for game 2. Pikunin daw namin sila, asar-asarin basta kahit anong trashtalk para mawala consentrasion nila ...lalo na yang si Rabeh Al-Sashimi saka si Chris Tiu. Sabi ko nga, "Kotz, how can we trashtalks Chris Tiu? Meron bang mapipintas sa kanya? And I doesn't know how to spokening Chinese." Hindi sumagot si Kotz, nagtinginan lang sila ni Assistant Kotz Jack tapos parehong umiling. I dont understood why.
Bumulong sa akin si Jayvee. Tigilan ko na raw yung mga inane na hirit ko kasi yun daw ang reason kung bakit hindi ako sinasama sa pers five ni Kotz. Paano nangyari yun, eh di ko nga alam ibig sabihin ng "inane". Tinanong ko si Walsham kung ano ang "inane". Sabi niya yun daw ang kunukulong sa mental. Ip dats true, dapat si David Joshua ang inane. Siya ang mukhang abnoy sa amin eh.
Enyway, sabi rin ni Kots na mas sikipan daw namin ang fool court depense namin, and it bored fruits naman kasi nag dalawang early poul si Al-Sashimi. Kaso di namin alam na maganda ang ipapakita ni Baldos saka si Jobe Mangkokolam. Pero we never gives up, basta kung kailangan hampasin yung kamay ni Reyes, Eskweta at Salamat para maagaw ang bola, gawin daw namin. Kung pumito yung referee ng poul, umarte daw kami na kunwari prustreyted kami, gaya ng ginagawa ni Assistant Kotz Jack. (Assistant Kotz Jack, ip your reading this, belated happy condolence nga pala.)
It's beened 24 hours and hindi pa din ako nakaka sleep. I'm reely hurts kasi hindi naman talaga ako nag derty pinger pero tinawagan ako ng second tecnical poul. Na-eject tuloy ako. Hindi naman masama yung ginawa ko ah. Sabi ni sir Tony Atayde, ang meedle pinger na nakataas, ibig sabihin "Animo La Salle, We are number 1". I olweys see him doing dat tuwing kinakausap niya yung reperees. Parehong kamay pa nga eh. (Next time I will told sir Tony na isang kamay na lang ang gamitin niya. Kasi I realized kung boat hands ang gamit niya, it meens "We are number 2." Isn't I smart?)
Dinadaan ko na lang sa blog ang sama ng loob ko kasi feeling ko talaga dis year we are the championship again. Ito na siguro ang pinakamahabang nasulat ko sa buong buhay ko. As a mater op pact, kahit mga essay ko sa scool hindi umaabot ng ganito kahaba.
Ayoko na. I'm tired na talaga. I'm tired nang ma-emmbbarrassedd (dinoble ko yung konsonants kasi di ko sigurado spelling) dahil lagi na lang ako pinapakain ni Baculao ng bola. Nakakahiya sa isponsors ko na Adidas saka Nike dahil ang pogi ko sa posters nila pero supalpal naman ako ebery time sa kanya. I hates him! (Pati nga si Buenafe nasupalpal ako. I hates him too!)
I'm siriusly considering na mag-PBA na lang ako. Baka wala na si Baculao pagdating ko doon. Hindi na rin kasi nagkakasya sa pamily ko sa Mindoro yung P200 monthly sponsorship fee sa akin ng Nike saka Adidas (combined na yun.). Nagiging milyonaryo daw ang mga player sa PBA. Asan kaya ang Job Fair nila?
Hanggang dito na lang. Sana makatulog na ako.

Love,
Rico
P.S. Napanood ko yung replay ng game. I'm still froud of my team kahit natalo kami. Kaso lang ang pangit talaga ng halftime cheering namin. Bakit kasi nila hinayaan nilang magsayaw si Chokoleit doon sa gitna? Ang sagwa talaga.

The Future of Cellphones

"Take this Fujitsu design, whose screen and keyboard pulls apart to be used separately. It uses magnets to connect the two pieces in the desired configuration", from Cnet Asia. I hope this concept phone becomes a reality. Its like having 3 phones in one!
