PSP Go!!!

Before, sliding screens are for mobile phones, now Sony's PSP Go presents us with well... a slide screen handheld game device. Smaller and lighter and suppose to be better. It's got 3.8 inch screen, 43% lighter than PSP3000 and with 16gb flash memory!



So you have seen previews of RUSE, and Avatar (see previous blog if not) and amazed by the controllers...
Now, I suggest that you watch this pLUFFY controller!
Ok! Ok! I know it kinda dumb to compare it to Ubisoft's controller. It just kinda reminds me of the time in my life when I was addicted to playing Monster Rancher.
Also, come on guys! Let's make love not war. Spend some time caressing, be tender, be sweet, let's play hide and seek and be naughty, ok forget that one...
I really do not know why this lady named this controller pluff but I think it sounds like that when you drop it on the floor... I wonder how Pluff would look on the screen if he is dropped... hmmm...

Avatar - Ubisoft - Ruse all asking for your heart

AVATAR (James Cameron) Trailer

Avatar is set during the 22nd century on a small moon called Pandora, which orbits a gas giant, and is inhabited by the tribal Na'vi, ten foot blue humanoids that are peaceful unless attacked. Humans cannot breathe Pandoran air, so they genetically engineer human/Na'vi hybrids known as Avatars that can be controlled via a mental link. A paralyzed Marine named Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) volunteers to exist as an Avatar on Pandora, falling in love with a Na'vi princess and becoming caught up in the conflict between her people and the human military that is consuming their world (Wikipedia)

*James Cameron chose Ubisoft (which appears to be working on a motion-sensing controller, a surface-type computer project and the first major 3d stereoscopic) to create an RPG of this film... and I think he has every reason why!
Take a look at the video below and be amazed!

Developed by Eugen Systems, R.U.S.E is set to refresh the strategy genre, introducing deception techniques that will let you bluff your enemy to lead your nation's army to victory. Camouflage your troops, lure your opponent with decoy units, sabotage his logistics: strategy has never been so intuitive and deep.

R.U.S.E features cutting edge graphics and effects, the incredible IRISZOOM Engine, immersive combat and a simplified interface that allows you to determine your nation’s strategy to defeat your enemies.

R.U.S.E is scheduled for release on PC, XBOX 360 and PlayStation 3. (ruse.ubi.com)

Let's Role and Roll!


Are you a role and roll gamer? Do you actually understand when I say that to play RPG you actually need to read and to study some books and manuals? If you do then this video is for you! This is truly hilarious for a gamer. It would remind you of your adventures with your fellow-gamers and the craziness of it all - in or out of the game. (I so love the ballista!)

All About Sex and Orgasm

Due to my previous post, I just remembered this very hilarious and interesting TED video. Mary Roach (author of Bonk) talks about something not a lot of people would discuss in front of hundreds of people - sex and orgasm! If you want to know more about this very interesting topic then I truly suggest that you watch this! (Later let me know what you think when you brush your teeth.)

a BIG WAVE for Google Wave!!!

This video actually gave me a sensation of having a climax! 

I am sorry to be so explicit on my reaction but it was really like that! (I am really LOL-ing right now.)  For a internet-geek like me who spends hourssss of time in the internet 7 days a week Google Wave is something really orgasmic. Why? For a lot of reasons! For example:

  • Real time chatting - I normally spend more time watching below the chat window "person is writing..." and I sometimes find it time-wasting specially when I am chatting with older people who are slow to type (like my aunt). The worse thing is when a person is using a mobile device! I cannot see the person typing at all. I have already typed 5 lines and I will be receiving just one and sometimes the conversation does not seem to make sense at all. With Google Wave, you can actually see the person typing in real time, no more watching "the person is typing..."
  • ROSY or Real time translation - before, when I still did not have any idea how to speak Spanish, I spend a lot of time going to Google to translate something while I am chatting with somebody who does not speak English. Now, with Rosy, I simply have to type in English and the other person will receive it automatically on whatever language he/she understands! (this is going to make the world feel smaller and more "together")
  • On Blogging - one can actually update his blog via Google Wave, well not just "one" actually but everyone you invite to edit or add something (and yet again, in real time!)
  • Photosharing - photos are getting to be bigger files by the day and honestly it sometimes try my patience watching the loading icon. With Google Wave, the moment you drag the photo into the window the other person can already see it. What is more, persons can simultaneously edit the photos. Simply Amazing!
  • File and Links Sharing - I, for one, share a lot of links on Facebook and email to show to my friends but...with Google Wave, I can actually embed, for ex. a Youtube video on my email instead of just writing the url. Fantastic eh?
  • Email, Messenger in 1! When the person is not available it is an email, if the person is there it is an IM. Either way, you have the option to save the conversation and continue it another time where you left it behind.
  • Playback! - I am not sure if I am the only one in the world who actually checks the time when the email is sent and who wrote what. Google Wave got playback which allows you to... well... playback! Watch who wrote what for example in an email thread.... which leads to...
  • Discussion Forum - Like the example in the video, you can actually start a discussion with a group of people to plan a meeting, a party, whatever!
  • Polls! - who wants what and of course majority wins! Google Wave allows you to make a poll and let your group decide on something.
  • Mobile! - bring Google Wave with you!
  • Business and not only Pleasure - I have already worked via the Internet and I actually believe that having this on a company would be wonderful. Imagine, boss sends an email to employees. Employee 1 replies but employee 2 will not be able to read it in a standard email. In Google Wave, you have an option to have everybody on it. No more pass the message!
This is not yet complete. There are also developer thingies that I am not very sure how to discuss but, so far, I believe I have a good layman's recap of this oh so wonderfully revolutionary Google Wave!

Brad Benjamin Button's Behind


This video will show you how. Digital effects guru Ed Ulbricht (Titanic, What Dreams May Come, Fight Club, Zodiac, Adaptation) explains in this TED video the magic that they worked on for a lot of years to make this movie a reality. Watch and be WOW-ed by the technology that was used. Think of the future of movies where reality and digitally created worlds collide. It may actually make you start guessing and thinking if what you see is what it really is, vice versa.

With Video Consoles -You Never Know!


and I am completely sure that the people behind this would have never thought that the following video is ever going to happen...


but for now it surely did freak me out when she actually "touched the water" and, I exclaimed enough blasphemies to be excommunicated when she "handed the paper" to Milo. Project Natal is truly amazing. I, of course, have not tried it yet but I think it is really a great thing for wannabe-players like me who have a hard time pushing buttons quickly just to get the result I want to have when I am playing. Think of all those combos that you have to push in Tekken just to have a super special combo attack...

Sylvia Earle on Google Earth and her TED wish of protecting the ocean

What a better way to start a geeky blog than to start it with my geek porn - TED. I am not sure if you guys (assuming I already have a lot of readers) already tried using Sylvia Earle's Google Earth. It is quite amazing. We all know that the Earth is made up of a looooot of water. With Sylvia Earle's idea we can now see what goes on in the ocean - the reefs, fishes, MARINE LIFE! Now if you have 18mins to spare right now I totally suggest that you watch this video. It will be 18mins of your life worth spending. Not only will you be entertained and amazed by the video but you will also be made aware of the decline of marine life and hopefully, let you start do something about it.
