The past few months have been a pretty busy gaming season with big titles being released, and BrickGamers wanted to do a comic with a "What If" scenario. So this is how it might look like...

However, even Pro Gaming is not seriously seen as an avenue of work, and will take time to be accepted as a norm, and until then, while pro gamers rake in the money winning electronic sports for their quick reflexes, sharp thinking, and keen analysis, the older generation will have a tough time believing what was once just a waste of time is the future of income and survival.

Remember those frantic moments of avoiding incoming fire and shooting at central cores of huge bosses in Gradius series? Well here are some amazing works by Peter Morris to remind us of the golden era of side-scrolling shoot-the-core series!

If you put 2 and 2 together, you have an Internet economy where students sell powerful characters to working adults. Since governments aren't savvy enough yet about the Net economy, you can easily get away without being taxed yet!
Of course, you can always develop your character yourself, but if you're working AND spending time to level-up your character, chances are you'll end up like our friend Jack above...like how some of us are suffering from Fallout 3...or Dead Space...or...well, you get the idea!

Well, okay, they also had other toys, but they had Lego as well, so hopefully this will grow to become a popular spot for Lego trading, so we'll let you know when (and where!) the next Toys Flea Market is happening - and if there's Lego there again by E-Toyz (or others!). Thanks Joujou and Shugi for the pictures!

The below comic might be too small to read because it has been converted from a print publication (GameAxis - see our box on the right). Hence clicking it will load a larger image.
Of course, that wasn't the only reason people came for the launch. It would be expected of Sony to have CosPlay girls as well, in-line with all things Japanese and Anime, and indeed there were!

We're not sure if anyone will be selling any Lego there, but there might be, so if you're free and keen to check it out, do go and let us know, as this flea market aims to be a monthly event, so it might turn into a popular spot to both buy and sell Lego (in the Valley at least)!
Contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their site at joujouandshugis.blogspot.com
BrickGamers was contacted by Joujou and Shugis Toys Flea Market about this event. Have a Lego or gaming-related event you want us to shout about? Contact us at email@example.com (also available on our profile box on the right) but do mention our post on your side as well - with a link if you have a Web site.

These gamers could be either new to the Fallout series, or they're enjoying the fun and mayhem they can have in F3 which they couldn't in the previous Fallout series. Although, it's worth mentioning you can't kill kids now in F3, which, unless you're a kid hater, there's probably no real reason to hate F3 for this!
Regardless of which, or even if it may be an "Oblivion with guns", F3 is still one of the strong games this busy gaming season, taking its place next to titans like Dead Space. Best of all, where else can you blow off someone's head with just a standard gun?

However, this used to be for other issues - not gaming. Are gamers using the same tactic now?

In tribute to his success in winning the US elections, and proving that the world has indeed changed - so that things can change - BrickGamers wanted to highlight the game Mercenaries 2 - World in Flames, by Electronic Arts, which has both Obama and Sarah Palin (Republican Party Vice President candidate) as playable characters in an update by EA in this Third-Person Shooter game:
As for Lego, nothing better captures the situation other than this scene by David on Flickr:

Since it's not owned but only managed by BrickGamers, we are unfortunate that we couldn't do much to salvage it. Nevertheless, we're working on a new forum, and it'll be up and running soon, on a new server, and this time there'll be improvements like better protection against spam/junk! Stay tuned and we'll let you know when it's up!
In the meantime, this is also a double-post to announce that you can now contact BrickGamers (that's us!) at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our contact is also available at our profile box on the right.

With slow Internet bandwidth connections, especially here in Malaysia due to monopolised domination by Telekom Malaysia, most gamers have to share their online gaming experience with other users, and if others do too much Internet bandwidth-demanding activities, like video streaming (like YouTube), then expect your game to be a slow experience - or worse, be cut off!

Scrap that, make it their parents aren't going to be happy! We're pretty sure EA doesn't want to be sued! However, they are getting problems from their DRM (Digital Rights Management) issues used in Spore to prevent piracy - so much so it has resulted in the cracked (hacked) version of Spore being available as a torrent to download! Talk about in-your-face protest!

If you want to earn the big bucks and respect pro gamers get, don't start by getting expensive hardware to show off, start by honing your skills in gaming - you can afford the hardware later once you start to make it big. Or, you could always stick to the tried and true hardware you've used that made you a success! Spend the money elsewhere!
For the die-hard gamers who have yet to be recognised, it's good to know rich noobs can be upstaged by your hardcore skills and truly, not always money can buy everything!

So the onus lies on the player to be in control of him or herself - when playing a really good game that can distract you. You know what they say - it's not guns or bullets which kill people - it's people. In this case, the gamer missed his stop!

Please note that The Malaysian Lego Vignette Contest (a short descriptive Lego assembly focusing on a particular local scene), organised by BG and sponsored by BBT, is still on - we haven't packed up and ran off with the prizes - yet! Just kidding! Stay tuned and we'll update!

Considering most BD players are more expensive - and they don't play games - this makes the PS3 not only a cheap BD player - it's also offers extra value by being able to play games too!
The PS3 is now available in Malaysia for RM1600 (yeah it's RM1,599 but we all know that it means it's RM1600 but reduced for the psychological effect) with 80GB of hard drive storage (which you can actually upgrade to 120GB - or more - if you know how).
If you didn't know about the recent launch - or go for it to win cash and prizes - you can buy your own "cheap BD player which plays games as well" from Sony shops.

Yes, that is a Lego Starbucks cafe you see there!

Anyone out there guilty of this as well? Anyone anticipating Fallout 3 or Red Alert 3 to have this effect? It goes without saying StarCraft 2 (when it's out depending on Blizzard Entertainment's fancy!) might have this effect!

Harrison's work will remind the folks who bought Valve's Orange Box about the time they spent running through DIY man-made Portals. The trans-dimensional fun! If you haven't played Portal, try the free (albeit 2D) Flash-based version here. It's about 8MB so it will take some time to load over a slow connection.

For Brick Gamers 25, we wanted to highlight both a possibility and downfall of gamers who multi-task in our modern fast-paced world. With gobs of RAM in today's PCs, we can spawn multiple programs and windows while playing games, but while this increases our productivity and multi-tasking ability...it might also affect our gaming!
However, WO is a whopping nearly 10GB download! That's more than even a dual-layer DVD9 (8GB)! Since Malaysia isn't well known for our Internet speeds - no thanks to Telekom Malaysia's (TM) broadband Streamyx service running at 1Mbps with the 2 and 4Mbps being unstable - it seems futile to download that much if you're just going to try it or if you're a Beta user for test. Until the TM HSBB (High-Speed Broadband) takes off in the country, get ready for this:

Who can resist models dressed up like fantasy characters like below? In order not to be sexist and balance both sides, we bring you both guy and gal fantasy gaming models for you to view!

Yes gaming doesn't exactly fit with the Olympics even though both are games, and that's why we came up with the below concept to be considered by console gamers for that extra exercise!
