Monday, May 28th, 2007

Here’s an mage from Famitsu Magazine about the newest character added in Tekken 6… Miguel. He is bullfighter like Vega (the one with claws in Street Fighter).

It is stated that Miguel’s fighting style is quite unique. Hope that we can see some nice moves when Tekken 6 is released.


Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny Rengou Vs Zaft 2 Plus

Friday, May 25th, 2007

Here’s a game that has a very long title, Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny Rengou Vs Zaft 2 Plus for the PS2.

It’s a game made by Namco Bandai and based on the popular anime Gundam Seed Destiny. This game is in Japanese, but since Bandai has tied up with Namco, some Japanese games are having English versions like Naruto which was originally made by Bandai. So maybe, there would be an English version of this game.

There are a lot of Gundam’s that you can choose in the game, as well as the Pilots. After choosing your gundam and pilot, you will decide what Awakening ability your Gundam would have. Each has their own strength and weaknesses.


-Insane reload speed (basically unlimited ammo)

-Shortened recovery time for shooting, making it possible to shoot consecutively

-Allows you to connect your attacks freely.

-Damage received is reduced by 25%


-Damage delivered is increased by 75%

-Won’t be flinched, staggered before reaching the Down value limit, which is 5

-Speed down. (Yes, it’s a side effect)


-Walking, and stepping speed in greatly increased,attack and landing recovery time is reduced

-Allows you to step (on the ground only) even with an empty booster gauge

-Allows you to cancel out your attacks with a step or a jump
(some attacks such as a Charge Shot can NOT be canceled out when you’re in the middle of it, however, you CAN reduce the recovery time afterwards, or stop it BEFORE firing it.)

Virtua Tennis 3

Thursday, May 17th, 2007

What’s not to love in this game? Even if you are not a tennis lover, you’ll definitely enjoy this game. You can play as your favorite tennis player like Roger Federer or Maria Sharapova.

Because of the PS3’s power plus an HDTV, players move realistically. There are also mini games added, for more gaming pleasure.

By the way, In Japan, Virtua Tennis is Power Smash.

Here’s a video showing a PS3 that has an ISO loader. Meaning he’s not using a disc in loading his game.

The game was copied and converted into an ISO file. Saved in the Hard Drive and was loaded there.

Like the PSP, that already has an ISO loader, it’s not too far that the PS3 would have one as well

PS3 using IDE HDD

Thursday, May 3rd, 2007

Here’s some pics and video in using an IDE HDD with the PS3. They used an IDE to SATA Adapter. Even though the HDD would not be inside the PS3, this is a cheaper alternative of upgrading your PS3’s storage.  The pictures show off both the pre-installed and completed make-up of the IDE to SATA installation process.



The video shows the formatting of the HDD.
