Ta ta ta ma gotchi! TAMAGOTCHI!

I have always been meaning to get one of this for my GF, She likes to play games that are simple and cute. But the problem is this, How long will this Tamagotchi novelty last? Its the same thing over and over again. Breed, play, feed, medication, sleep, rinse and repeat.

Judging though by the response of Tamagotchi buyer and how they already have 4 version available, it is fairly safe to assume that the Tamagotchi fever has everything BUT died down. Whats so fun about this anyway? Is it the same reason as why Pokemon is well loved? Meh. Anyone wanna enlighten me on this?

More information about NEWEST Tamagotchi is available HERE

New Super Mario Bros Fever

In case you are wondering what the hell is that, its called New Super Mario Bros. GuraGura Game. I have absolutely no idea what THAT thing is or how it works. But Anything stamped with the name NSMB is a sure fire selling point.

New Super Mario Bros. Crystal Attack Board Game

This though at least makes some sense. If i were to venture a guess, I dare say that you are supposed to balance a metal ball around a maze using only that particularly red jotting out joystick and have some semblance of fun with it. I wouldn't dream of playing something like this in my lifetime. Meh...

Shock! NDSL Replacement Casing

Just the other day a friend was screaming death and murder at his brother for breaking his NDSL hinge. He was complaining to me about how hard his brother close the NDSL and how huge the crack is. He calmed down a bit into disbelief when I told him about the cracked hinge problem for a White NDSL. Then it was death and murder for Nintendo for making their NDSL fragile ( People just can't be satisfied can they? )

Anyway, I looked around for solution to deal with the cracked hinge, partly to help him and partly to sooth my curiosity of modding NDSL. I found a couple of solution, but the only viable one is the SHOCK! Replacement Casing for NDSL, they have quite a few selection of casing available. But the one that really caught my eye is this.

They the folks that made this at claims that this is a 10 minute job with 4 steps. And I quote what they say below

If you were to change to the Magnum Chrome Premium Edition ONLY, the process comprise of only 4 replacement parts. It should take you less than 10 minutes for assembly as we have simplified the prcedure to a mere 3 steps which is very similar to replacing the faceplate of the PSP :
Right... 10 minutes... 4 steps.. They even posted a step by step picture guide on Flickr
( view it HERE ) now, either my maths is very bad or I can count at least 22 pictures there. And the last picture there say its step number 21. Thats 17 step more then what they claim.

Ok fine, they said its Magnum Chrome Premium Edition only. So are they saying they can do it all along? Or that they are doing this so that they can screw up your NDSL with 22 step and hope you get lost somewhere then cry dagger and death for fucking up the NDSL? And the price tag ain't cheap either. The price tagged is 10 cent shy from 50.00 USD. I think for now I will stick to my original casing.

I leave you here with a Naked NDSL picture. Enjoy

The case mod can be bought from HERE

Square Enix Official Online Merchandise Store

Cough cough, I am trying very hard to pull myself together while writing this post. As I was browsing some of my information site, I saw the announcement that Square Enix Online Store is now officially open. I am still choking from all the selections that they are offering there. They have, some of the limited edition items that are no longer available in any online stores.

Go to HERE for more information and Drooling session.

Nintendo DS Lite Brain Age 2 Bundle - 110V

Well what do you know.. The Brain Age 2 Bundle is finally out. And at quite a reasonable price too. Retailling at US 199.90, thats RM 703.55 for malaysian, the price of the whole special bundle is reasonable. In fact, looking at the included accesoric and colour combination, I dare say that this set is a steal. Let's do a simple calculation

Brain Age 2 Game = RM 150
Leather Pouch = RM 55
Limited Edition NDSL = RM 500

Bear in mind that i am using this as an example of the pricing only
If I were to calculate it ala Sungai Wang or Retailer pricing, this is what we will get

Brain Age 2 Game = RM 160
Leather Pouch = RM 70
LIMITED Edition NDSL = RM 700

Thats easily RM 930, so if you wanted to get an NDSL, I would suggest getting it now, and this bundle is worth every penny

Weapons Set for Final Fantasy Play Arts

Now, to hit it off after the Rowan Atkinson funnies, I found THIS! Its a figurine weapon set featuring weapon from

FFVIII - Lion Heart (Squall Leonhart)
FFVIII - Strange Vision (Selpie Tilmit)
FFX- Caladcolg (Tidus)
FFX - Nirvana (Yuna)
FFX - Masamune (Auron)

I think it could be a one set with 5 type of weapon in it. Or one weapon per set. Regardless, this is one very nice looking set :D

Weapon Set For Final Fantasy Play Arts

Post Break! Rowan Atkinson: Invinsible Drum Kit

Gyakuten Saiban 3 (Best Price) / Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations

Yes sir, This game that first appeared in Game Boy Advance is now available in NDSL. For those that have been out of the loop, Gyakuten Saiban or Phoenix Wright as it is known in the states sweeped a lot off people off their feet with its quirky dialog, funny character and heart pounding case where the player takes the spot of a lawyer trying to defend their client while breaking a case. All done in a days court room brawl with a lot of tense moment and peculiar facts that will keep player at the edge.

Personally, the game have been quite a success in Japan and in the states. For those die hard fan this would be a must get title. For those that are new, this might be the place to start your adventure as a Court Room Brawler.

Get the game HERE

Final Fantasy Miniature Trading Figures Vol. 1

I have been debating this for quite sometime since the Pre-Order was opened a month or so ago. Looking at the art, I can make out Rinoa, Yuna, Cloud, and the other fellow from FF 12 or 13 I believe. But the chick on the far left. I don't know her.

Anyway, should I get it? Or not? Its miniature size which fits my requirement nicely. But at RM 17.24 or USD 4.90 each, its a little bit on the expensive side for me. But then again, the nice art is just too tempting!

Final Fantasy Miniature Trading Figures Vol: 1

To buy or not to buy? That is the question.

P/s: Vol 1? does that mean there is vol 2 and 3 and 4? GAH!

New Super Mario Bros KeyChain

Retailing at RM 17.56 or USD 4.99, the NSMB Keychain is one expensive keychain. But based on the picture and the quality of the look, I dare say that this might be a justifiable price. Although it would have been a lot more tolerable if its priced at around 2.99 or 3.99 USD

Lack of Posting?

Yes sir! and ladies, There have been lack of posting for the last week due to some hectic schedule, lots of lazy bone and no less to the frantic game pace of Megaman Starforce: Pegasus and Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon.

Alternating between this two game, I have negleted my gaming time with Heroes of Mana and Luminous Arc. Both have the potential to be big but I find that both game are too slow paced for my liking, as Luminous Arc feels something like Window Vista security system. Every action have to be reconfirmed twice. Are you sure you want to move here? Is that your final answer? GOD! MOVE ALREADY!

Anyway, Last week I made my order for the Stationary Style Set DS Lite, and currently i am waiting for the Pocket Book to launch before placing my order. Hopefully I can combine this two set and make me look scholarly when playing NDSL outside :P

Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles - Ring of Fates Accessory Set

Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles - Ring of Fates Accessory Set

Well, the accessory set is finally on sale, although its a far cry from It's A wonderful World set but I expect this set to be sold out pretty fast. The set includes a white stick on protector embossed with Ring Of Fates logo, a screen cleaner made in the form of a moogle and lastly a touch pen. Hastily made and cashed in for the launch of FF:CC. Meh!

Pocket Book DS Lite? Or Stationary Style DS Lite

My love for books are unequaled, well.. Not really but it reaches a limit that is scary as I do my best to get all the books that I love. What with the recent surge of Harry Potter and the drought that follows, the latest book that will appear is in September is Diablo The Sin War 3: The Veiled Prophet. I am looking for its launch on the 25th of september. :D

Anyway, back to the DS Lite, I have been lugging around the Wallet Pouch for DS Lite (which was reviewed HERE ) which, as nice as it would be its getting a bit out of hand with its weight and size. I'm now looking for something that fits snugly with my NDSL and 2 stylus with 1 or two slot for games. No other accessories slot or anything for the matter. Only NDSL. Well as a habitual animal that I am, I prowled around Play-Asia and found two choices for my NDSL.

Pocket Book DS Lite


Stationary Style Set DS Lite

Both fits the NDSL snugly but I am slightly a bit partial towards Stationary style set due to the fact that there is no need to stick anything onto my NDSL. the Pocket Book DS Lite requires user to stick the skin of the cover onto your NDSL! I am not kneen on doing that. Although it is quite tempting at times due to the fact that the aptly named Pocket Book DS Lite really transforms the NDSL into a book like book! ( wtf )

As for the Stationary style Set, I like it coz it provides full cover for the NDSL and it allows user to fit a few more items into the small pouch! Meh! The choices!!

Did I also mention the variable choices that comes with it? The Stationary Style Set comes with a screen cleaner and a pencil look alike stylus, while the Pocket Book DS Lite comes in not 2, not 3 but 5 different color! Wohoo!

Click HERE to see ALL the choices of color available in Play-Asia

Another Feed Burner

I made another feed burner, but this one is below par level. In fact, I don't even know why i bother to make it. Its ugly and bad. Maybe I should change the background colour to something less boring and dull.. Meh.. Suggestions?

I am bad in Photoshop. Tsk.

Heroes Of Mana Meta Review?

I have my Igoogle set on receiving DSFanboy latest blog post to keep myself up to date with new things from their blog. They have pretty good stuff going on there, so its through there that I received this Metareview: Heroes Of Mana post. Below is quoted from them:

Opinions on the actual game Heroes of Mana are as varied as thoughts on the idea of taking the franchise in RTS direction. Review scores cover an enormous range, and in the end, we can only recommend that you find a reviewer you trust, or simply go with your own gut on this one.
And the above statements hold kind of true considering that the review marks varied from 50% to 81%. Thats a staggering amount of difference! Gamebrink gives it a 81%, IGN 81%, Games Radar 60%, Game Informer 50%.

Thats 4 percentage, 4 reviewer, 4 different opinion. What the hell...

Have you purchased your Heroes of Mana from Play-Asia?
The Heroes of Mana cover does look sweet right?

Weekend Gaming

Well, that was fast. Barely had I time to sit down to contemplate the significance of the week before and here I am again, on the weekend again. Although the week had been a practical waste with the lack of game release, I must say a surprise hit came out a few days ago.

Megaman Starforce!

Contrary to popular belief (yet again ) Starforce is surprisingly good. The jokes are not half bad, the graphic is lively and the gameplay is interesting. What they did wrong though is the keyboard. Instead of utilizing a touch screen keyboard, they shifted the keyboard up to the top screen, you would have to navigate using the keypad to type anything! LAME! Anyway, this game is a pretty good one for those that like RPG and Megaman. I like it.

Megaman Starforce is available in 3 type.


The price is not bad and quite cheap. Cheaper then other game that is. I look forward to spending my weekend with Megaman. That is, untill the 14th of this month as
Heroes of Mana
Luminous Arc
Rune Factory: Fantasy Harvest Moon

will finally be out! Wohho!

As always. Click the yellow writing to see the game.

I am quite intrigued about Glory Days 2 too. Apparently There is a 3D glass included with the game. Interesting..

R4,Rom and Homebrew

I was having conversation with a fellow blogger and forumer the other day and a disturbing notion came up. Its harder to find original game nowadays in Malaysia.This is not for lack of trying or lack of information. Its just, you can't find them!

No less then one year ago, we can walk into any popular shopping mall and there will be Original DS game everywhere. It was a sight to behold and I for one is willing to fork out 150 for an original game that I love. Contrary to popular belief, I try my best to get original game from time to time too :) But now, lingering in one of my frequent forum, a new user of NDSL will ask the first question, How do I get R4DS? Where can I find ROM? Or, the people that wanted to get NDSL will ask what is the cheaper alternative then a Rom Cart. COME ON! How cheap do you want it to be? Are you THAT cheapskate? If you cannot afford playing, then DON'T!

Whats even worse, some of this user do not even own ONE original DS game. Hey! I am not saying I own a lot. But at least MAKE AN EFFORT to support your chosen developer! Sure you are poor, sure you cannot find original game at your place. How did you buy your R4DS then? Or your NDSL? When there is a will, there is a way. No amount of reasoning will justify the fact that you just STOLE From the developer.

I am not one to start scolding anyone at all ( although I just did ), I admit that I am a R4DS user. But get this, I don't help people that want to get ROM because I know its wrong. I make an effort to get as much Original game as possible. I buy 2nd hand games, I buy games that have been thrown into the cheap bin in Play-Asia. I SELECT the game that I love and can afford. So unless you do something like this, don't start patronizing me.

The Root Of All Evil!

There I was, strolling along happily to my rabbit hole to get some dough for the month. I took out my safety box and checked the amount. Shocked I was when I found out I barely have enough to survive!

This is the picture I get yesterday. My fund for this month has dwindled to CRITICAL level. I owe people money and there are quite a few games that I want to get. Meh... What is the root of all this Evil? Who took my money? Donning my Sherlock Holmes hat, I traced my financial statement and found the answer in Play-Asia

I bought no less then 10 Gashapon from Play-Asia and spend more of them on the gashapon machine found all over Kuala Lumpur. GAH! GIVE ME BACK MY MONEY!

I blame it all on the following item. Click to see their evil picture

Nintendo DS Character Touch Pen Pocket Monster Diamond & Pearl Version Gashapon
Bleach EX 2 Phone Strap Gashapon

Eternal Legend, World Of Warcraft Movie

To mourn my lost of WoW game from my laptop, I reminisce about the good old days by flipping through all my screenshots. There were picture of my baby mage, picture of me running away from some black dragon, me walking into a group of horde raiding dragons and me in the middle of Durator in my alliance mage. Aaahhh the good old days..

I also found a WoW movie that really touched me. Very good music and movie style. Watch em. I got it attached on the post.

Code Geass Skin & Happy Birthday Dyna!

I loved the anime Code Geass so I thought why not make a skin out of Lelouch. That was over 2 weeks ago and boy, have I crumpled a huge amount of paper and deleted plenty of file from my laptop while designing a nice Code Geass skin. Anyway, I was telling Dyna about it and he asked me to give him the challenge of designing one. 5 minute after that and he went offline.

So I decided to try one last time and see what happened and this is what I got.

Not half bad eh? I admit this is just a cut and paste job but hey! I am still learning ok? I wonder if there is any fancy thing i can do for the background.

oh by the way.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DYNA! Ding! You leveled to Level 23! Wohoo!

Sunday, August 5, 2007


So weekend is over and tomorrow the week starts over again. What did you guys do over the weekend? Caught up on your gaming? Killed that boss that you failed over 20 times? Raided that final boss in WoW?

Me, I spent a none gaming weekend this week. It was not exactly relaxing but it was fun. Started to celebrate my weekend by getting myself a Bleach gashapon from Sunway Pyramid. Manage to hit onto Ichimaru. He looks cute :D. It's not half bad looking. Now that I mentioned it.. I am still waiting for my second batch Bleach gashapon from Play-Asia.. It has been 3 weeks :(

The next day I spent the time at home catching up on my freelancing work.. Boy, its not easy sitting down and resisting watching all those series I got back logged onto my PC but meh I did it. Finished my freelance work, mail it over and watched Shooter by Mark Wahlberg. It was a pretty brutal and realistic movie. There quite a few mcguyver moment in there too. Ahh, haven't enjoyed such a brainless kill movie for sometime now.

In the evening, I don on my chef hat and prepared Italian spaghetti ala Jamie Oliver style for me and my GF. It was a noisy affair with cursing and flinging of vegetables here and there. But we left the kitchen relatively intact. But there was a minor problem. The Italian Spaghetti we cooked up can feed 3 very large person and there were only two of us... Time to pig it out..

After dinner, it was a marathon of Ken Watanabe movie as we watched The Last Samurai ( my gf pronounced it as the Last Samugam >.<) and Letters from Iwo Jima. Nice movie overall but it kinnda dampen the mood after the samurai was slaughtered in an "Honorable" death in The Last Samurai and Everyone in the Iwo Jima island died. Meh...
Anyway, Sunday was a day of sleep, left over spaghetti and Dinner in some Vietnam restaurant up on Midvalley. Didn't really caught their name but it was situated at cinema floor beside the Korean restaurant. Pretty nice place despite the location and the size of it. The food was not half bad and the price was decent. I got myself the last available issue of September EDGE from MPH. Wohhoo!

Anyway, what did you guys do over the weekend? I hereby tag

Prime-Minister of Nintendo LYN

Do refer bag to the person you guys tagged and entitled your post. Weekend :)

I need a weekend after this weekend...

Nintendo DS Character Touch Pen Super Mario Bros. Yoshi Island Version Gashapon

But this set is just pushing it. 10 different coloured Yoshi touch pen gashapon with a phone strap for its egg. This is just lazy work! Print out 10000 of this, paint it in 10 different colour and sell it off as one collection? COME ON!

Viva Pinata for DS

During this year's E3 Media & Business Summit, Microsoft revealed it would be not only porting its casual-friendly Xbox 360 game Viva Piñata to PCs, but also developing a brand-new iteration in the series for its flagship console, titled Viva Piñata: Party Animals.

It now appears that Rare's vibrantly colored pinatas have been breeding like bunnies, as during Kids' Day at Comic-Con International: San Diego on Sunday, Microsoft announced it is readying a Nintendo DS version of Viva Piñata.

Aside from it being a port of the Xbox 360 game, details on the project are slim. However, a Rare employee posting under the username "Errrm" stated on an official Viva Piñata forum that the game would employ an angular viewpoint: "I believe it is a isometric view, rather than a 3d view. I am guessing this is something to do with the graphics power of the DS."

Though Microsoft acquired the UK-based studio from Nintendo in 2002, Rare has released a fairly steady stream of games for the Japanese giant's handheld in recent years. In addition to several Donkey Kong Country installments on the Game Boy Advance, Rare most recently brought its signature pint-sized gorilla to the DS in 2006 with Diddy Kong Racing DS.

[UPDATE] Rare has sent along updated information on Viva Piñata DS. Not only will the game include all the trappings of the Xbox 360 version, but it will also feature a greater variety of tools and tool actions, an updated journal and encyclopedia, and a wider variety of papier-mache critters. The DS version will also include new game modes including sandbox, where players have "full and easy access" to the piñatas, and episodes, which ties in to the game's spin-off TV series.

Rare also revealed that Viva Pinata DS will take advantage of several of the DS's unique capabilities. Players will able to interact with their pinatas using touch-screen controls, and pinatas can be exchanged via the DS's Wi-Fi capabilities.

This is a nicely designed Death Note Figure. Although it is in Chibi form, the look on Light Chibi face is more Sinister then Adult Light. They also have Flying Ryuk in Chibi form. Too bad they did not have Misa, L and Near. I don't like the rest of the character :P

Death Note: The Last Name

I finally watched the Death Note Movie: The Last Name last week. The movie was a so and so and did not really pique up my sense of wonder or curiosity. There is just lacking of the mysterious aura that I am used to have when reading the manga. Regardless, they have done quite a good job in adapting the manga into a movie. ( MISA IS SO CUTE! )

I must say though it seems the emphasize too much on L liking sweet stuff, ( everytime the movie revert to L, or his team, it will always start with L eating something sweet). Ryuk is being used as a joke most of the time. Stating useless crap and taunting Kira for no reason and lastly, they kill off Mogi! What the hell! That and some of the plot did not make sense. I would not spoil it here for fear that some of you have yet to watch it but if you are a reader of the manga or anime watcher. You would feel like they have cut off something very important from the movie.

The whole movie is a good conversion from Manga/Anime to Movie. It would really fit in nicely for anyone that follows it or not. But the movie fails to draw my attention. That is, untill the last part. Its nothing to do with the movie. The said Scene is when Misa is back at her room and its snowing outside with the Tokyo Tower at her window view. I don't know about you but that room is nicely designed and the view out the window is breathtaking. Which got me thinking... What about? That will be in another post.
