AoE III: The Asian Dynasties ... my a$$!!

This poster was so intriguing that although I am not a Age of Empires fan, I went to their website to take a look at this expansion to an old game (I remember looking at this games trailer way back in... 1800s!) from the studio developing Halo Wars.

Word is that because Ensemble Studios, the creator of the original game, is busy with developing Halo Wars, and so Big Huge Games (people behind Rise of... series, and those who flunk me on a phone interview for software engineer position...-_-) took on this expansion.

Anyways, this expansion was described as having to do with everything Asia. So, I checked out their website, and looked at the new civilizations, and... I must say, this does NOT represent everything Asia! Why? Because the new civilizations introduced are...the usual China and Japan, India, and... that's it. Yep, no Mongol, no nothing.... and no Korea!

Now, I remember Age of Empire II having Koreans as one of the playable civilization... What happened? Does different studio behind the game has to do with this rediculous selection? Man... I am so turned off by Big Huge Game now... First they reject me, then they reject Korea altogether.... -_-

Scary Song

I don't know how I got this song, but in my iTunes Library exists a electronics titled 6th Gate (Dance with the Devil). Artist's name? 666. Length of the song? 4:44. (Number 4 signifies death in Asian culture, and thus people avoids that number as much as possible. Almost same place as 13 in western culture.)

So, what's the song like? It's just boom boom techno with a voice that tries to sound scary that utterly fails.

Anyways, how did this song get onto my computer...? *scratch*

Crisis Core: FF7

Two things:

  1. Cool graphics. The quality of Japanese full 3D graphic animation is developing so fast that it's rivaling Holywood's special effect animations.
  2. SquareEnix should stop sucking the life out of FF7 and move on. Feels to me that now that core developers who created FF and Square itself are gone to make their own games, SquareEnix is having a "Crisis Originality" itself. And do port FFXIII to Xbox360!

UPDATE: This game did a magic on PSP sales. Curses! Not sure what Square and Sony have going on in the back, but Square's doing a log of favor for Sony... (First they save PS, then PSP..)
