Gadgets & Gaming
I love this game, I hate this game. It’s a love-hate relationship.
I got this game a couple of weeks ago because I haven’t touched my wii for months and it’s collecting dust so after watching some ‘Just Dance 3′ demo, I wanted it. Unfortunately I couldn’t find it but instead I found ‘Drum King‘. It doesn’t need any drum set so hey, worth a try.
You only need to use the wiimote and nunchuk as sorta like Virtual Instruments for this game.
The thing that I love is the fact that you don’t need extra expensive drum set to play it, and I’ve been wanting to play a drum game for so long. However I think there are more cons than pros with this game.
The wiimote is quite heavy, so after a while of heavy ‘air drumming’, your hand, wrist and arm will get very tired. I could only survive the easiest option because if you choose the hard mode, you’ll get confused! You have to remember what combination of buttons will do for what part of drums.. it’s too complicated for my brain.
The notes also sometimes don’t hit at the right moment, even though I tried my best to hit it.. like I said, it’s all confusing. But what’s nice is that I can drum to some of my favorite songs so it’s a good stress reliever, but not something you can play for a long time. And since I’m playing it on a 46″ TV it gives me headache.. after you’re done playing each songs, because you’ve been concentrating on the moving notes on screen, your surrounding will move for a while after.. it’s like one of those optical illusion pictures that after you stare for a long time, your eyesight will have moving images, surrounding and stuff.
If you’re asking “where can I buy a blackberry curve 8520” you can click the link. I personally would love to have a BB Torch right now. I love my Storm 2, but there’s one thing smart phones pisses me off – battery life. Honestly.. now my phone can’t last half a day if I open one or two apps.. if I don’t it can last maybe a couple of hours more but that’s if I don’t use the phone at all.
Another stupid thing is that the loading time for my Storm 2. Gosh. I have to wait 5 minutes at least for it to load the damn thing and I’m so sick of it. If the phone is not a nice smart phone I’d probably throw it away. I just love it for the push email and instant notification.
Okay back to watching ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air‘. This is one friggin hilarious series.
You know what’s cool?
Metal detector shoes.
It makes it easier, no? You walk on the beach then suddenly it beeps meaning there’s something underneath then you start digging. I wonder if it’s sold here but then again I haven’t been to the beach for ages. You can get this bounty hunter metal detectors tingymajingy online. Not the shoes though. I don’t know where you can get the shoes but it’s a cool thing, cool idea.
I have a Samsung Corby II phone now! Yes it’s in pink
It was just a quick decision. Last month I saw this phone for Rm299 only (normal is RM399) and I’ve been wanting a new second phone because 1) I don’t want to mix personal numbers with business numbers and 2) I need a backup phone because my Blackberry’s battery drains real fast.
So I’ve been looking for a really cheap phone just for backup and business calls.. and it just so happen that this corby is cheap enough and has TOUCH SCREEN. I love touch screen. I have small fingers, so I like touch screen.
It has 3 colors available – pink, white and yellow (orange not available at the store I bought in).
The features are pretty basic but it does have integrated social networking apps – myspace, facebook and twitter.. also has gmail app but they’re all very basic and nothing fancy. What I don’t like about it is it only has gprs and EDGE connection and no HSDPA compared to Samsung Galaxy Mini which is an android phone. Cost RM499 but I wasn’t looking for expensive phone. I need the cheapest possible.
Touch screen is okay and responsive although it has no qwerty keyboard which I hate.. I’m used to qwerty keyboard that now it slows me down to message on this phone.. it does however have ‘bahasa melayu’ dictionary so at least it’s a bit easier. It also took me a while to figure out how to change ringtone. The volume isn’t that loud either compared to Galaxy mini..
It only has 2MP camera which is alright but not good enough compared to today’s standard with HD quality photos in phones.
However, if you’re looking for a light, thin, funky, enhanced basic phone.. corby II is good Now I have a separate phone number for other than personal calls so I’m happy. invitations
I have a Nintendo DS Lite again!
August 18th 2011 (meant to blog about this sooner lol)
I’ve been wanting a DS Lite for quite a while. I’ve been looking for the cheapest option everywhere and the cheapest I could find for a new set was RM375. However, that’s available in Singapore. Having them to post it here is quite risky plus I’d have to bear expensive charges of sending it back to Singapore should I ever need to claim warranty.
Last month, just so happened that someone was selling a used DS Lite in a forum based in Ipoh. Now, I’ve been against used stuff because I don’t like using stuff that’s been used by unknown people. You don’t know what they’ve done to it, whether they’ve dropped it, whether they caused problems to it and stuff like that.
However, I have my DSi. After bricking my Acekard 2i a while ago, I decided I want a backup DS Lite. I certainly can’t carry my DSi to anywhere I go because of what happened last time (my pretty metallic rose DS Lite was stolen from my bag) so that’s why I decided to accept used nintendo that’s cheap as possible. This guy happened to be based in my city, and after negotiating I got the cheapest price I could get – RM180!
That’s fucking cheap.
The one in the Singapore shop is cheaper – RM173 but again, it’s too risky. No box, plus I can’t test it… So I decided to quickly make a deal with this guy. Unfortunately he had laptop problem that night and couldn’t meet me the next day but would send his brother instead.. now that sounded like a suspicious first deal.. after reading all the con cases in the forum, I was skeptical. He was persistent to deal with me the next day too and doesn’t wanna wait the day after to deal with him.
At last I agreed, telling him to deal at somewhere nearby my place. The agreed time was 6 pm.. guess what time his brother arrived? 6.40 pm. Wtf. I waited there at KFC alone like an idiot because it was fasting month. There was nobody there except 3 staffs and me. I thought I got stood up. I was really pissed, plus mom was waiting in the car, really pissed too, and it was almost time to break the fast so mom wanted to go home to cook. steel buildings
As I was about to leave, his brother reached the place. Tested the thing, and I couldn’t test it for long but apart from the left upper button being a little hard to press (he already mentioned it in his forum post) everything else is working great. It doesn’t really bother me because I already have my DSi. Not that I use that button a lot. I made the deal with him. I can’t find any other console that’s cheaper than that plus located in my city. White is not my color though. I hated it. It looks yellowish for the buttons. So I pimped it a bit.
There! It looks much better now
Now I can bring it to anywhere I go because it’s smaller, lighter, not new, cheap. Now I have a backup console should I brick my cards again, longer playing hours and double gaming backups! Plus I can play with my guitar hero again yay.
Also, I took this to KL and played it in the train during the journey, and accidentally got addicted with ‘Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney‘. No wonder that game was so much popular.. it’s friggin fun!
