The local afternoon heat without the remedy of an air con can be a terrible thing... so I would imagine it is not uncommon for a local gamer without an air con to "dress" up like a barbarian while he is playing in this dead lock heat.

In the long standing traditional old school view that games are mostly made for boys and designed by boys (still is!) comes the common sight of scantily clad women standing with her heavily armored male counterparts. Kind of makes you wonder which is the "weaker" gender when you think about it. The recent "exhibit A" candidate for this issue is Lost Planet 2.

Just so you know, Prince of Persia was actually a very old video game a long time ago that has been given a revival with the above-mentioned Sands of Time game but will now be revived more with both LEGO and movie - and who knows, maybe even a LEGO game! While we wait for both LEGO Prince of Persia (for those countries not out yet!) and movie to come out soon, here's a LEGO Prince of Persia movie trailer based after the real movie trailer, created @ MTV News (source):

Bolehland.net asked "Do u photoshop the face or do u have that many faces?
Well, we try to use all the authentic face as far as possible; there are times photoshop is indeed used to alter certain facial expression but that is usually the last resort. As a matter of fact we have this head rack around which helps in the creative process of sorting out the wanted expression/head. Lately the rack is desperately running out of space as the collection grew, may be it is time to build a new head rack... you can click on the above image for a closer view.
By the way Bolehland.net are fellow Malaysian aspiring artists who runs their own comic site chronicling Malaysian life. Do check out their work here.

By now most of our better informed readers should have some how heard of the Fancy Horse Makes Blizzard $2 Million in Four Hours news. If this trend keeps up it might create another sub group of vanity elite players within the virtual world itself, making the widening gap between "have" and "have not" group of people felt even in the virtual world.

Microsoft claims this is for the benefit of the community to maintain Xbox Live only for a single console, the same way they forced all Windows Live Messenger (formerly known as MSN) users to upgrade to version 14 (2009), as mentioned by our sister site BrickTech here.
Of course, if you've read our post here (and BrickTech's post here), you'll understand Microsoft is doing this to achieve their ultimate Live Anywhere online service. One service to rule them all? Sounds familiar huh? To see more pissed off gamers comments, check out this post here.
With all the DRM (Digital Rights Management) issues with recent UbiSoft games, ActiVision's evil actions with their acquired studios, and EA (Electronic Arts) increasingly-sucky games in order to 'rape' the gaming community of their money for their own corporate self-interests, it's about time gamers begin to vote against the pillage of the gaming industry as you would vote against politicians who destroy your own country. After all, we all remember a time when playing games used to actually be fun - before the businessmen took over and catered for them.

Recently there is this news of a 12-year-old boy runs up £900 debt on Facebook game FarmVille. Though in the news the boy's mother admit it is the boy who is at fault but the feeling of this whole set up which feels like a none savvy user's death trap seems all too real.
