Typhoon Hits the Philippines: Donations Needed!

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

Last Saturday, September 26, 2009, a fierce storm hit the Philippines. The typhoon, known locally as Ondoy and internationally as Ketsana, brought strong wind and heavy rainfall that eventually caused major damage to the country, particularly to Manila, the capital city.President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo declared a state of calamity for almost the entire region. Several areas were affected by heavy flooding, with surges as high as 6 metres sweeping up everything in their path. 240 deaths were reported as of September 28, 2009, and countless people are still missing. News reports for the past days have shown people clambering to the roofs of their homes in a desperate attempt to escape the floods, the clothes on their backs the only things they were able to salvage. To say that this has caused major damage to person and property would be an understatement, given the major losses the country has suffered.

While there have been rescue missions and outreach programs to help the victims, most victims of this storm are still in need of aid. Here is where you can help. Listed below is web link to World Vision that delivers badly needed aid to the victims of typhoon Ketsana. Even the smallest contribution will help to provide relief to the needy, so please consider giving.

Thank you.

Examiner Gives Hello Kitty Online an 8/10!

Monday, September 14th, 2009

Hello Kitty Online receives another positive review, this time from Examiner!  Tucson Video Game Examiner Tara Foulkrod took a peek at the North American closed beta of Hello Kitty Online and she liked what she saw.

HKO at

According to her review:

“The graphics are smooth, and what you would expect from the Hello Kitty world.  Very detailed and very much from a fantasy world.  The controls are easy to master, and the quests are relatively easy to finish.  Very child friendly, and very friendly in general.  I’m going to give this game an 8.0/10…”

The article covers quite a bit of info about the game and it’s a good read for anyone who wants to check out the game.  Click here to read the rest of the review at the Examiner website.

The closed beta tests of the North American release of Hello Kitty Online is currently underway.  Visit the Area Games website for more information.
