Incorrect because you spelled it wrong. It should be,

Looks like I finally took a plunge into the depths of WordPress. It just happened on a whim actually. Having read about it for quite a while elsewhere, I decided to see what’s the fuss about.

From my first looks, it seems pretty similar but I can tell its pretty more extensive in its customisation and options available. Of course, the option to actually import all the old posts from Blogger was the clincher, but the numerous nice themes were a bonus.

I’m going to explore a bit further with the new stuff to see if there’s anything interesting to add or fix (the old youtube videos no longer link properly -_-“), but then again I’m no CSS expert. Wish me luck ^^;

water tennis

March 27, 2008 at 8:09 am (news, ramblings, sports, wtf?) (, , , )


Ever since my brother went for his obligatory 2 year National Service term, I’ve been lamenting the lack of a tennis partner during my holidays. Of course, this only happens when I’m not too lazy myself ^^;

So, what does this have to do with a picture of the world no.2 tennis player Rafael Nadal doing a delicate balancing act on water? Nothing of course – except for the fact thats it on bloody water!

Sony Ericsson Open Unveils World’s First Game of Tennis on Water

I simply cannot imagine how the game was played out. From my experience of playing tennis in the rain (don’t ask -_-“), the ball would soak up all the water and its ability to bounce would be close to zilch.

Just leave it to the creative brains of Sony Ericsson to come up with something as outrageous as this..

crisis core

Yeah, I know I know, I’ve been neglecting the blog for quite a while lately, but I have a bloody good reason (or excuse however you want to put it ^^;) :

Final Fantasy VII – Crisis Core

Basically this PSP game’s been sucking many many hours of my time ever since I’ve begun spending my out-of-job life this week.

Sure, it’s one of the many money-spinning offshoots that Square‘s been using to milk the beloved franchise dry, but make no mistake – this is probably the most anticipated piece of work to enrich the already fascinating world of FFVII after Advent Children.

Taking place 7 years before the events of the original game, the main protagonist this time around is Zack Flair, with many other familiar and unfamiliar characters thrown into the mix as well. Gameplay-wise, CC plays much like an Action-RPG – which means to say nothing like FFVII at all. I’m not going to go into an in depth review of gameplay mechanics, something which many game sites have already done, but what I can safely say is that even though you might need some time to get use to it at the start, the game becomes a blast to play once you do.

Having been a devout fan of FFVII from the moment I played it on my PC with the 4 CDs I ‘borrowed’ from my friend (no PS for me ^^;), CC brings back all the nostalgia and feelings I had since then. Because the game is basically a prequel, you sort of already know how things will end up, but that does not detract it from serving up a great storytelling experience complete with mind-blowing CG cutscenes and solid soundtrack. Above all, it provides an opportunity to flesh out the events which culminated in the original game and it does this with aplomb.

At the end of it all, I guess I just like to thank Square for actually seeing this game to production and providing fellow FFVII fans around the world another avenue to immerse themselves in the vivid world of Gaia.

Now for the inevitable FFVII remake, I might just get a PS3 if it actually does come out.. ^^;

If only the ads in the ‘Classifieds’ were this funny, I would probably start reading them everyday – along with ‘Sports’ of course ^^;
