162  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Shocking News!! Game Reviewers admits not finishing the games for review on: July 15, 2008, 11:49:12 AM
Let's say it's ok for looong game such as RPG. But what about review of shorter games such as Halo, Resident Evil, Half-Life?

I believe if you are decent game player, and I am guessing game reviewer are,it would take them less than 10 hours to finish Halo 3 or Resident Evil 4. Some reviewers believe that even that is too much.

Although itís something that I had suspected for long time, it looks like itís more than standard practice now days.

Here are some quotes from Gamespot article,

"I don't tell readers when I don't finish a game," freelancer Rowe said. "I know it might sound shady, but I guarantee that it's standard practice.

Nevertheless, some reviewers argue that there's no reason for a reviewer to finish a game when most readers aren't going to complete it either.

I remember Game Informer review of some Pokemon Dungeon game. Whole review was about how much he hates Pokemon & dungeon crawlers type game and does not mention anything about the actual game.

167  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3] So, what do you want to hear from Sony and Nintendo tomorrow? on: July 15, 2008, 01:37:01 AM
Microsoft has surprise me with many of new announcement and it will be very interesting to see what Sony and Nintendo has to offer.

Particularly SonyÖ. I love PS3 but I usually buy for XBOX360 if itís on both system and they only have such a few exclusive titles. Most of time I use it for DVD/Blue-ray player.

Despite so-called ďexpert analystĒ calling for death of XBOX360 or being 3rd place, I donít see Microsoft being distance 3rd any time soon.

168  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Resident Evil 5 confirmed for Xbox 360 on: July 15, 2008, 01:25:15 AM
Just watched the game trailer on XBOX Live and it looks great!

I really enjoyed the RE4 and I have feeling that RE5 is going to be better.
169  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Too Human demo coming next week on: July 15, 2008, 01:09:43 AM
Control definitely getting used to and I donít like the cameras too much. I kept pressing the button instead of right analog to attack.

Beside those two problem, I am really enjoying the game.

170  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: (Hellgate: London) Who's in? on: July 12, 2008, 01:00:03 PM
No matter what, I hate to see another game company go down~

I keep trying to play Hellgate, I like the action but hated the option (equip, stat, skill) screen. I wanted more simpler interface.

174  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 in-game XMB updated! on: July 03, 2008, 05:09:50 AM
It was pretty fast for me to update yesterday night.
Upgrade went without any problem at all. I did however turned-off PS3 after upgrade and didn't touch it since.

Also, wonder when are they going to patch Ratchet to work with trophy feature?
175  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (6/30) on: June 30, 2008, 08:13:25 PM
Thinking really hard about Soul Calibur XBLA and Dungeon Runners on PC.

It looks like Diablo 3 does not require for you to buy brand new PC/videocard.
177  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Kung Fu Panda DEMO on: June 27, 2008, 11:08:20 PM
Just beat the game. It's not the best game in the world but I had great fun playing this game. I can always use more beat'em up / action / adventures games.
178  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Untold Legends Dark Kingdom (PS3) on: June 25, 2008, 02:47:18 AM
It's not the greatest game ever, but I did enjoy the game for what it was...decent $20.00 hack and slash.

179  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: List of Game Lengths? on: June 24, 2008, 07:24:20 PM
I do avoid some of games known to take a long time to beat, mostly RPG that I used to love.
I just don't have 80 hours for FFXII anymore... Now I want shorter and sweeter experience.
180  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are your gaming $$ allotted towards? on: June 24, 2008, 06:27:09 PM
Just too many games to list. Most or all of adventure games plus Disciples III, Starcraft II, etc.
I am going to catch up with my backlog as much as possible.

I don't mean to be rude but don't you think it's kinda weird that a lot of famous people are dying lately?

Tim Russert
Stan Winston
Sydney Pollack
Bo Diddley
Jim McKay (of ABC's Wide World of Sports)
George Carlin

All of them died in period of one month.

Rest in peace....

I download the AusLogics Disk Defrag and so far it's great. Pretty fast and it's free. Only thing that I don't like is that it doesn't show % of defrag until program finishing defraging harddrive.
186  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Looking to Blog on: June 18, 2008, 09:26:23 PM
I am thinking about blogging and looking at the LiveJournal, WordPress, and Blogger.

Does anyone know which one is better than others and also easier to use?
I will be mostly blog about gaming, movies, and other stuff.

Second movie was too outrageous & cartoon like even for action movie

The series officially went to shit when he jumped the car flipping it over midair, in order to use the crane to pull a bomb off the bottom of the car and then landed it perfectly.

That's when the movie lost me too~

Want to pick up MGS4 but I am low on $$$ and still have too many games backlog to play.
I am going to wait till someone trade on here, goozex, or GameTZ.

Played decent amount of Timeshift XBOX360. I know it's not AAA title but I am getting money's worth.

Also, I receive the gift from good friend of mine. "Adventure Collection volume One" for PC. It contain Deadreefs, Deepsake, Mysterious Island, Nibiru: Age of Secrets, and Secret Files: Tunguska.
Five adventure games for $20.00. I am a happy  icon_lol
