Love Song Tuesday

I really don't know what's going with me at this time but I am really hooked with this song.  I first heard this song when I was traveling back home from a visit. The song really makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside -crazy right? ☺

Title: Marry Your Daughter
Artist: Brian Jr. & Niko McKnight

I did not find (or did not find hard enough) the official music video for this song but was able to find this neat animation though.

[credits goes to their rightful owners, just sharing this wonderful song]

Going Loco Over Sims Social

Loading Screen of the The Sims Social in Facebook

Just recently, EA together with Playfish have released a new game in Facebook entitled Sims Social. Even though still running in beta this casual game had received wide audience participation which is reflected by downtime ever so often as the developers struggle to meet the demands.

Gameplay is very the same as the past Sims titles, at first users are asked to create their own characters either by random character generation or by customizing key elements.  Then as you venture into the game, you get quests presented to you by neighbors which ranges from simple task within your own space and extends to task which can be completed by visiting your friends.

It is simple and downright fun and it serves as another avenue for one to meet new friends and even kill time ☺

Gameplay Rating: ☺☺☺☺ / 5 (due to server downtime ever so often but that's acceptable since the game is just in beta stage).

Lady Gaga Hits Country Music and Rock 'n Roll?

Was actually online in Facebook when a friend actually posted a poll about Lady Gaga's music video and out of the choices, there was one that I am not so familiar of. Therefore, to feed the rising curiosity in me, decided to do some research and here's what I got.

Metal Gear Solid: Rising

Tentative Box Art Cover

The famous espionage stealth action game returns with a new title and this time it's not Solid Snake who takes the spotlight but rather another protagonist named Raiden.

Resident Evil: Revelations

I am a big fan of the Resident Evil series, especially the game since it is where it all started and I confess that even up to now, I am still playing them on Playstation 1, 2 and even on Nintendo Double Screen. And now Capcom and the Resident Evil team will be releasing another title called, Resident Evil: Revelations...

Green Team

Alrigthy, back to blogging! Really decided to postpone all blog entries to focus on my gaming deadline ☺
Was caught up unlocking the second to the last character for Grand Chase - Philippines which is Zero - really awesome character!

After a few days of being offline from the blogshpere (offline in the sense that I was still able to read some blog entries from fellow bloggers) decided to pump it all up and do some serious grinding.  Now, seeing all the hard work payoff is so fulfilling and my Green Team is now complete. Yey!!

Exploding Surprise

Woke up a bit late in morning and decided to continue typing my supposedly blog entry for today when I felt the urge to drink coffee (was very successful for the past few days in convincing myself not to drink) but the impending headache became a lame excuse. Went to the kitchen to make a cup of coffee and while I was on my way back to my desk to resume typing, the dinning room light suddenly went dim at first then it flickered (the type you see in the movies when something evil is about to unleashed), curious, I looked up and then boom!

What Made My Friday

Alrighty, I have another confession to make... I am a fan of the Harry Potter books and movie series (as if everyone if not all, isn't) and since there ain't no books to be added to the collection anymore and the movie's last installment has just recently hit the theaters, Jo (J.K, Rowling) herself and the rest of the gang decided to have Pottermore...

Grinding Mode

Since the release of the latest character named Zero, to the character stable of Grand Chase last week, I was really enthusiastic to unlock the said character because this character will actually complete my Green Team (Lire, Ryan and Zero). Why Green Team? One answer, because the primary colour scheme for all of them is green -simple enough right? LoLz!

But as expected, unlocking this character is not without difficulty and grinding is a must...
