Kittypoints can be used inside Hello Kitty Online

Saturday, December 27th, 2008

So says the official blog.

To quote:

 

On top of that, we have good news for all our Sanriotown users. If you’ve taken time to check the mail info box that appears when you log-in to Sanriotown, you’ve probably noticed that you have a certain number of “Kitty Points”.

Sanriotown Kitty Points

In Open Beta, these Kitty Points will be converted into HKO Loyalty Points. That means, the higher your Kitty Points, the more Loyalty Points you will receive. This will be an active conversion system, so continued use of Sanriotown will earn you more points for the Item Mall!

At the moment, signing up, logging in, sending email through your account will earn you Kitty Points, but we have plans to extend this system to the use of other services in Sanriotown.

This means I get to use my Kittypoints for credits inside the game once launched.

A true Christmas miracle story (2009)

Thursday, December 25th, 2008

No one expected to find Donna Molnar alive.
Donna Molnar’s body temperature was 30 degrees Fahrenheit when rescuers found her Monday.

Searchers had combed the brutal backcountry of rural Ontario for the housewife from the city of Hamilton, who had left her home three days earlier in the middle of a blizzard to grocery shop.

Alongside his search-and-rescue dog Ace, Ray Lau on Monday tramped through the thick, ice-covered brush of a farmer’s field, not far from where Molnar’s van had been found a day earlier.

He kept thinking: Negative-20 winds? This is a search for a body.

"Then, oh, all of a sudden, Ace bolted off," said Lau. "He stooped and looked down at the snow and just barked, barked, barked."

Lau rushed to his Dutch shepherd’s side.

"There she was, there was Donna, her face was almost totally covered except for one eye staring back at me!" he said. "That was, ‘Wow!’ There was a thousand thoughts going through my head. It was over the top."

With one ungloved hand near her neck, Molnar, 55, mumbled and tried to scream as Lau yelled to other rescuers. Dressed in a leather coat, sweater, slacks and winter boots, Molnar was carefully extracted from a 3-foot-deep mound of snow that had apparently helped to insulate her.  Watch how the rescuers found Molnar »

As Christmas nears, winter storms make going rough
Then, rescuers got their second shock.

"She was lucid, and said, ‘Wow. I’ve been here a long time!’ and then she apologized and said, ‘I just wanted to take a walk, I’m sorry to have caused you any trouble,’ " said Staff Sgt. Mark Cox of the Hamilton Police Department, one of the leaders in the hunt. "And we’re all thinking this is incredible, this is really something."

"I’ve been doing search and rescue for seven years, and this is the wildest case I’ve had in finding someone alive," he said.

She was rushed to a hospital and immediately sedated to begin the agonizing steps of hypothermia treatment.

"I think the snow must have worked to trap her body heat, and that’s what really saved her," Cox said. "This really speaks to what’s possible."

David Molnar is calling his wife’s survival his "Christmas miracle."

He wasn’t able to speak with her immediately after she was taken to the hospital. But while she was under sedation, he leaned over her and whispered in her ear, "Welcome back, I love you."

"My wife, you know, doesn’t pump iron. She is strong physically and spiritually," he said. "When people say to me how do I explain how she survived, I said I believe God reached down and cradled her until the rescuers could find her, because there’s no rational explanation."

In addition to hypothermia, Donna Molnar is being treated for severe frostbite, and her recovery will take months.

But his wife’s condition was upgraded Wednesday from critical to serious. "That may not sound like a great thing to everyone, but to us, that is the best news we could possibly get on Christmas Eve," David Molnar said.

As for Ace, he’s still awaiting his reward: a T-bone steak. It’s the least that can be done for a dog who, in his own way, paid it forward.

"A while ago, Ace was rescued from a home where he didn’t belong, and now he got to rescue someone. I can’t describe the magnitude of that, what that means to me," Lau said.

"He’s definitely getting his steak. I’m grocery shopping right now."

Hello Kitty Online has shook the gaming industry!

Sunday, December 14th, 2008

Hello Kitty Online has shook the gaming industry with a Hype Rating of 8.34 and claimed the TOP SEAT for Most popular mmorpg. Best thing is, ITS NOT EVEN OUT YET. Reposted from here.

"HKO doesn’t have PvP it has PvCS. This makes all PvP, especially using internet spaceships, all pink and fluffy."
"im sorry but i don’t understand the obsession behind this game. Im not trying to troll but i really want to know how this game appeals to you and why does this have such a high hype rating. i can’t understand it when there many other cool games coming out such as chronicles of spellborn etc. is there something im missing please tell me why you like this game so much maybe im wrong and this game does have something really cool to offer…"

"i rather play hello kitty then age of conan thats for damn sure."

"I also would rather play HKO than AoC, I tried AoC actually, nice but run of the mill"

"Don’t you ever insult Hello Kitty Online.
EVER. AGAIN."

"I remember checking Hello Kitty Online out when some people were saying "Hello Kitty Online —->" on the EVE forums, and I have to say, I think it looks like a damn good game!"

"Perhaps, but Warhammer was supposed to be the "WoW-killer" for the past year or so. Having not succeeded in that mission despite the the number of rave hype reviews, I say HKO has the next best chance…which isn’t saying much at all. Nevertheless, it’ll be interesting to tap into HKO and fiddle with the game to see how it is different."

Such responses, how can a game with such loyal fans not be GREAT?

I agree!

Amazing Ping Pong Kung Fu

Thursday, December 4th, 2008

Bruce Lee playing Ping Pong, but with a nunchuk! Amazing old footage (used in a commercial thereafter, but still great to see, and at those times there were no special F/X like we know them today)
