Brick Gamers 40 - Futile Protests

Our bad. The Christmas and 2010 New Year gaming delayed us for BrickGamers 40. That's 40 comics that's appeared in GameAxis (a South-East Asia regional monthly print game mag) since we started 4 years ago. This doesn't include the 70-over Web-only BrickGamers comics which appears on this site 3 years ago! Now due to requests, our GameAxis converted comics for the Web have been enlarged to 800pixels (SVGA) to cater to bigger LCD monitors, so when you click on the 400pixels (width) thumbnail below, it will open a new tab/window with the 800 one.

Oh yes, we decided to tackle the Call of Duty - Modern Warfare 2 private server gamers protest issue for this 40th GameAxis BrickGamers LEGO comic! For Malaysian gamers with lag problems, it's something that's very close to the heart that's worth protesting about! However, as Jack has mentioned, it's the Console gamers that will doom PC gamers and their protests!

Top PC Game of 2009

You can read more about this in the report of the Most Pirated Games Of 2009.

Some say it's because its a good - if not great - game, while others insist it's a backlash from the issue of Modern Warfare 2 PC won't support dedicated servers.

Either way, the bottomline of the massive sales should please the developers from taking this path, a decision which can leave a lot of players with not-so-fast Internet connection, feeling left behind.

LEGOLand Malaysia Update

For all Malaysians (or Singaporeans, or Asians for that matter) who are waiting for LEGOLand Malaysia to open in 2012, here's an update to what's happening in the Johor state, which is where the theme park will open. We previously mentioned about this here.

It will be located in Nusajaya, which will be the new admin city instead of Johor Baru. Nusajaya is part of a larger area known as the Iskandar Project.

The construction sign is already up

This is where LEGOLand Malaysia will be developed

Here are some work on the LEGO models for LEGOLand Malaysia, made in LEGOLand California by LEGO designers there.

Malaysians should recognise this building - it's the Perdana Putra, the Prime Minister's office, located in Putrajaya, the admin city of Malaysia, as opposed to Kuala Lumpur, which is the capital of the country. This LEGO model was done by KK's team in LEGOLand California.

You can read more about this professional LEGO model designer at her blog here.

Game Reseller Bane

Resellers hoarding old games can have their own nightmare unfaced by non-digitally reproduced products. Read more about it here.

How much worth is your product if it can be replicated virtually? Still want to collect games in their collectible form? Well perhaps if they come with limited edition boxes and figures...

An Achievement with questionable Bragging Rights

This one is old news, Taiwanese Player "Beats" World of Warcraft.
But it does beg the question of after such a colossal feat has been achieved is it wise to go around talk about it? On one hand the individual has demonstrated his epic tenacious capability but the other hand ...

In your Wildest Dreams only...

If you have not heard it yet, British tennis star Andy Murray gets dumped for spending too much time playing video games. Now it is only natural most gamers will wish they can do the process in reverse.

Mini LEGO Twin Towers

Malaysians SHOULD instantly recognise this MOC (My Own Creation) - it's the Petronas Twin Towers of the KLCC (Kuala Lumpur City Centre). It's the only tallest twin towers left in the world after...well, you know.

If you still haven't heard about it before, then maybe Malaysia needs to do more advertising and marketing out there compared to what it's really being known for, as our sister site BrickLives does.

Anyway, this is a miniature LEGO MOC done by MisaQa on Flickr. We hope she appreciates we've blogged about her MOC :)
