Khan-fusion and a cabbie tale – INQ7.net Cool story on INQ7 about a 40-year old cab driver who plays popular MMORPGs here in the Philippines. Goes to show how well MMORPGs like Ragnarok, MU, etc. are doing locally. Even though they're not considered “big” compared to American giants like Everquest and World of Warcraft, they've definitely captured the Pinoy market quite well.

RPGamer – News Bulletin – Namco, Capcom Combine Forces to Create Sim-RPG Wow. I mean, wow. The game will feature playable Namco and Capcom characters apparently, and not just from RPGs. Street Fighter RPG! I'd play it. :p Note: This is the first time I'm using Blogger's BlogThis! feature. It's neat. Edit: They've got screens ! Morrigan finally gets a new sprite!

A Giant Hammer


We have a giant hammer prop at home. Made out of a stick and some cardboard (I think). Naturally, we bash each other with it.

This game is the third and last installment of Tri-Ace's venerable space opera science fiction RPG, spanning across three consoles [1], and it's a good finish. I finished the main story just before the year's end [2]. But I've still been actively playing it, going through the bonus dungeons [3] The fact that I finished it, and the fact that I am still playing it, and the fact that I am still planning to finish it on both of the higher difficulty levels, all of these facts speak volumes about how good this game is, given that I don't have nearly as much time to play as I did before I was working.

w3chart


Someone asked for this on the GameFAQs forums. w3chart is a program to analyze Warcraft III replays. I don't know if my copy is old though, it doesn't seem to have a version number.

The Past Comes Back to Haunt Us


If you've been paying attention to this blog (yeah, you, both of you), you'll notice that the archives now go all the way back to January of 2002. That's when I started the site on topcities some time back. I moved some of the “journal” posts I had from there into blogger, using a very detailed process I shall refer to as “manual copy-and-paste and editing of links”. I still had some backup copies of most of the old site around, and archive.

2004 -- Year of Many Things


_ “So, what's your New Year's resolution?” “I resolve to live life on purpose, to take control of my fate, to sieze each day as if it were my last. I will be reckless. I will be daring. I will be strong. I will challenge fate. I will defy the gods. Or I will die trying.” “… Why can't you just quit smoking or go on a diet like ordinary people?
