The Chinese Channel Happy Family Gala 2008

Dropped by the "Happy Family Gala (開心夏日嘉年華)" on Tuesday which was an event in Glasgow organised for overseas Chinese by the Chinese Channel. It was a rare event so I decided to go along to do some coverage. Not to mention a few of the TVB stars were coming over too as special guests, namely Michael Tse (謝天華) and Fala Chen (陳法拉). The event...


The Persona Music Live 2008 Coverage

It's been just over two weeks since the Persona Live Music event so I all the blog coverage around the internet should be settled enough for me to do a write up now. I was hoping for a small teaser video from Atlus themselves but, it appears they've only posted a series of small photos on their own site. From what I can gather, the concert was a...


Final Fantasy XI, Single Boss Fight for 18 Hours?!

Ah... Final Fantasy XI. Was a great MMORPG. Just listening to the OST gives me nostalgia thinking back to how I used to hang around the Ru'Lude Gardens waiting for the next party or forming my own, travelling about on the airship and chocobos and of course, beating the tough level capped missions for the story. Best thing was probably...


Song Summoner, Square-Enix's RPG for iPods!

Now here's something interesting... We all know Square-Enix has been making games for mobile phones such as Final Fantasy IV The After or FFVII Before Crisis but, now they have a game for iPods too! Entitled "Song Summoner: The Unsung Heroes", the SRPG has players playing as Song Summoner Ziggy who's brother has been taken away by the...


Mozilla Firefox 3 Download Day

The complete version of Firefox 3 is finally released to the public today after much testing. Just downloaded my copy to enjoy the new features and to help them set a good world record for the number of downloads in 24 hours. Why not join in the Download Day and then pick up your free e-certificate too? Servers have been pretty much been...


New Free AVG Version 8.0, Now with Spyware and Website Protection

AVG just released a new version of their (legitimately) free virus scan a few days ago which has an improved updated interface at version eight. Also good to see it now scans for malware and allows you to define exceptions too unlike the previous version. I'm not too sure about the Link Scanner though which checks for unsafe websites...


Makoto Shinkai Finishes New Ef Game Opening Movie

Despite his little internet problem he had earlier, Makoto Shinkai writes that he continues to work in London. This time he's returned to Minori's adult visual novel game series, "Ef - A Fairytale of the Two" to help complete yet another opening movie as director for their latest title "The Latter Tale". I guess it must be a coincidence...


Getting Your PSP Online with Xlink Kai and a Wireless Adapter

I used to use Datel's Wifi Max to connect my PSP to Xlink Kai so that I could play Monster Hunter online but, I've decided to pick up this Buffalo WLI-U2-KG54L Wireless G Adapter for £15 from Misco. I had a hard time trying to find a list of recent wireless hardware that support Xlink Kai. The list in the official forum are mostly wireless...


MP3 Players and Photos in Shopping Centres

Snapped this picture a few days ago in a shopping centre because I thought Advanced MP3 Players was just an online store. Their service was great. Quick e-mail responses and fast courier based deliveries so it was interesting to find they had set up a stall here too. I used to order from them when DAPs only played a limited number of file...


Sims 3 Details in Two Weeks Time

I remember how fun The Sims was when I was playing it during high school. It allowed you to design your own home, make your Sims live a dream life and play "God" perhaps. Then the second one came out which was better with its improved graphics, livelier animation, better AI interactions and family genes so that got me playing again for a...
