Gaming need not be expensive Part 1

May 29, 2007 Leave a comment
As a gamer, I would sometimes find myself at times lacking the cash to buy me both games and hardware. But recently there’s been lots of price drops on computer hardware happening. And these drops aren’t just by hundreds, I’m talking about by the thousands (of Philippine Pesos). There are several factors at hand here: first, the Peso has appreciated much over the last year, from Php 52 = $ 1 a year ago to Php 46 = $ 1 now, secondly, new hardware kept arriving giving a bit of leeway on making the old hardware disappear (the really old hardware) and making the current ones (that are actually quite useful in the coming 3 or so years before they get obsolete), and third, it may be a very far off reason, but I think the launch of Vista did it. The current high end hardware (upper level Pentium Ds and lower level Core 2 Duos) have relatively cheap prices starting at Php 4xxx.00 ( Php 3000.00 cheaper than my Pentium D 805 starter dual core processor LAST YEAR). Same thing goes for RAM I got a 1GB 533 DDR2 for 4k last year, now it costs 2k a pop, very ripe for those who’re still yet to move over to Vista (It’s quite a bonus for these users).
 
On the next run, I’ll be explaining on how to build a cheaper (year 2007) PC for gaming. (Man I wish I have sponsors to give me the hardware to pull this one off)

StarCraft 2 Movies

I first announced the upcoming StarCraft game without the videos, my bad. So to make up for it, I’m embedding here some videos I got from MSN Soapbox. Starting off with the Trailer movie

 
I’ll try uploading the gameplay video… but first I’ll have to convert it into a lighter video, it’s in HD so it’s quite BIG.

Need for Speed 2007

It seems the surprises don’t seem to stop during summer,
 
EA gave a teaser video of Need for Speed 2007 (working title). And as what sources say, to cut it short, it follows this equation:
NFSU2 + NFS:MW + Burnout + Gran Turismo = NFS2007

May 20, 2007 Leave a comment
After a decade, Blizzard has finally announced the upcoming sequel to one of the cult icons in PC Gaming, StarCraft during their event in Korea just yesterday, May 19, 2007. They gave the Korean gamers (and the whole world for that matter), a glimpse of the game’s new movie, showing a new character, a Terran Marine named Tychus Findlay being released from prison and being equipped with his Marine equipment (and for the first time we learn how/why it seems that marines are human yet mechanical at the same time.
