Are you an Asian or European Mr. Spammer?

I was laughing out loud when I saw this fella's name.



VERY VERY URGENT REPLY SEND YOUR TEL.../FAX...FOR MORE INFORMATIONS‏



Dear friend,
My name is Mr.Philip Samsung, I am looking for a honest business partner who will help me for the transfer of this US$27.5MILLION DOLLARS into a foreign Bank account number. I am a Banker by proffession, from Burkina Faso, this sum of money belonged to one of our late customer who died along with his entier family in a plane crash leaving nobody behind to come for the claim.. He was a Gold /Diamond dealer in Ghana, before he finally resides in Burkina Faso as a contractor.
It was during the bank auditing that I discovered this funds, and calling on you to assist me in providing a foreign account number where this money will be transfered. I promise to give you 40% our of the total money and 60% will be for me. i need your assurance of your capability to handle this transaction both financialy, honestly untill this money is transfered into your nominated bank account number in any part of the world.

In fact I could have done this deal alone but because of my position in this country as a civil servant (A Banker), we are not allowed to operate a foreign account and would eventually raise an eye brow on my side during the time of transfer because I work in this bank. This is the actual reason why it will require a second party or fellow who will forward claims as the next of kin with affidavit of trust of oath to the Bank and also present a foreign account where he will need the money to be re-transferred into on his request as it may be after due verification and clarification by the correspondent branch of the bank where the whole money will be remitted from to your own designation bank account.

I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you confirm the money in your account and ask me to come down to your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated and further investment, either in your country or any country you advice us to invest in. All other necessary vital information will be sent to you when I hear from you.
I hope that you will be honest to me when this money comes into your account number.
I want you to send to me the following informations:
Your Full name..........
Your Telephone number.....
Your Fax number.....
Your nationality.....
Your Age....
Your occupation....
Your sex.............
Your International passport or driving licence.....
With the above informations, I will process the application form which i will send to you, to apply to the bank for the transfer the funds. REPLY TO MY PRIVATE EMAIL FOR SECURITY REASONS.
REPLY TO: philipsamsung120@sify.com
waiting for your urgent reply
Thanks,
MR.PHILIP SAMSUNG

Final Fantasy XIV Preview


Stay in your position! Here comes the new server for another episode of Final Fantasy XIV for Playstation 3/PC. Well I guess there some lucky brat where they can test out the alpha version for Final Fantasy XI players in Europe, Japan and N.A. server. Still unknown when will this title comes out. Anyway let's take a look at some of the inside.

New class of job list is up there. There is some class where the attacks were differentiate as well. Near attacks would be Pugilist (2 position which is Offensive and Defensive Stance), Gladiator (with recovery skill if equipped with shield), Marauder (master with axes), Lancer (1 hit 2 enemy in a row, just like FFTA) and Miner (experts in mining ore). Where the long attacks would be Thaumaturge (Dark Mage which equipped with Gravity and Drain), Conjurer (elemental magician) and Archer (you know that). In addition there's Blacksmith as well (for your upgrading needs).

BTW it is not as convenient as you think that you can switch job anytime. According to the insider, you have 2 modes which is Active Mode (weapons are ready to strike) and Passive Mode (HP recovering without entering battle). You can switch to another job provided you're at Passive Mode and your weapon class should be the same. 

All in all, the updates will be available soon enough for you. Check this out if you have 2 particular thing. High speed broadband and Playstation 3/PC (do I mentioned your cash as well?)

Some of the new monster that's in the picture are Gagua (peacock species, it's a herbivore I think?), Aoashira (bear species) and a legendary dragon... Jinouga which we saw in the preview on the video.

On the other hand, the new add-on will comes with Felyne Comrade System, where we can 'dress' up the Felyne with weapons and armor. Mind you, is 2 Felyne that we can bring this time. Before this official game comes out, there's a spin-off called Monster Hunter Diary Poka Poka Airu Village, where we play as a Felyne which has multiplayer mode for ad-hoc 4 person.

My 2 cents opinion on Xbox Live

These are some of my opinion on Xbox Live. I just update the newest updates (April '10) and try out some of the service available. These are my findouts using some of the basic question and my own opinion.

1) What is Xbox Live?

Xbox Live is a place where you use your Xbox360 and connect it to your ISP and voila, you're there, together when you'd register yourself with gamertags. From the Xbox Live you can download some game demo, old school games, share your games results, chatting, social networking, etc.



2) How Xbox Live works?

Depends on your consoles version and country, there are two (if not mistaken) servers that you'll be connected. Either Xbox Live Japan or U.S. Accounts are differentiated as well whether you're an U.S. account or Japan. Most of the servers content are identical unless there's exclusive (especially Japan in Arcade). If you're using U.S. account then you'll get U.S. servers content, and so on.

 

3) Why Xbox Live?

Everything in consoles (be it Wii, PS3, 360) are solely not just a mere simple consoles anymore. With online you can chat, multi-player, download old school (memorable) games as well. Each consoles has their dedicated servers and version of online, where Microsoft called it Live.


4) Where's Xbox Live available?

Is available in 26 countries, it just see which version of consoles and server that you're at. I have an Asia console and I'm connected to Singapore and Japan server. As long you have the account, ISP and console. Is that simple.


5) When's Xbox Live available?

Live is available for a long time ever since the first Xbox console are out. You can check on Wikipedia if you want to read more about the history of Live.



I'd try to download some trial games on arcade and game demo. IMO, it is a nice and interactive place. Not only you can browse for games,even you can add community via Facebook and MSN. In fact Live has made it like iTunes store where you can download games digitally without the hardcopy. But one thing still doubt me is when I'd made a purchase a particular game/video, if I accidentally deleted it,would I be able to get it back for free?

On the other hand that I would like to praise about Microsoft for their 360 compare to Wii. No fanboy here. I'm not comparing the graphics and games. I just want to raise my opinion about the game availability. In fact they did it well. Why? DVD has NTSC-U/C, NTSC-J, and PAL. This is the common. So for Wii's case here's the catch. Japanese games goes to NTSC-J consoles ONLY and vise-versa. Common, some of the games (e.g. SuperRobot Taisen) are big hit across the N.A. So why you want to limit your market? Do you think consumer like us will buy another new console just for that particular version?

Now here's the good thing about 360. In fact they made some open region games (which every version console can play along). Just like my NTSC-J console can still play NTSC-U/C games as well (as long it is stated there No Region Protection). I can play Asia version and Japan game as well. Yeah!

For my case, i'm more interested on arcade game and some free video demo. Not playing 360's game using Live. Why? Due to my country's inconsistency of internet speed, if I am to play shoot-em-up game, i'm sure I gets the blame ' cause i'm lagging other people's gameplay as well. Tried with Winning Eleven 2010 where I pass my ball, 2 seconds lag. Where's the fun?

The reason why Malaysia have to keep up playing original is due to the online contents and multi-players availability. I'm sure some of their 360's has been banned from Live,so when is ban, your 360 is like half dead.

My suggestion for future 360 owner,get original 360,become a silver (if you can afford gold, go for it),save money to play original,you won't regret. If you can't afford new game that cost RM180 (almost USD50) LIKE ME,go for arcade game. Cheaper and fun too. No headache of getting ban,flashed drive,D.I.Y backup games (I'd wasted 5 dual-layer),modded chip,future updates,etc. Video games are meant to be fun,not headache. For my case,i think I'll get a new 'rumor' 360 slim if money permitted for Asia/Japan Live. So people,go for original,go for Live. I'll post my other console's online content when I get a hand on my Wii back and future PS3.

Do you want $15.5 Million?

Well apparently this idiot didn't know what he's mentioning.

Please Urgent Response (Not Junk)‏


From: Paul Marshall
Imperial Finance Limited, UK

Dear Friend,

I am Mr. Paul Marshall, the Auditor General, Imperial Finance Limited UK . In the course of my auditing, I discovered a floating fund in an account, which was opened in 1990 belonging to a dead foreigner who died in 1999. Every effort made to track any member of his family or next of kin has since failed; hence I got in contact with you to stand as his next of kin since you bear the same last name. He died leaving no heir or a will.

My intention is to transfer this sum of $15.5M in the aforementioned account to a safe account overseas. I am therefore proposing that you quietly partner with me and provide an account or set up a new one that will serve the purpose of receiving this fund. For your assistance in this venture, I am ready to part with a good percentage of the entire funds. After going through the deceased person's records and files, I discovered that:

(1) No one has operated this account since 1999
(2) He died without an heir; hence the money has been floating.
(3) No other person knows about this account and there was no known beneficiary.

If I do not remit this money urgently, it would be forfeited and subsequently converted to company's funds, which will benefit only the directors of my firm. This money can be approved to you legally as with all the necessary documentary approvals in your name. However, you would be required to show some proof of claim, which I will provide you with and also guide you on how to make your applications.

Please do give me a reply so that I can send you detailed information on the modalities of my proposition. I completely trust you to keep this proposition absolutely confidential. Kindly forward your telephone number where I can reach you easily. I look forward to your prompt response.

Best Regards,

Mr. Paul Marshall.
paul.marshall210@workmail.com

If he want the cash so much, wouldn't be easier to find somebody near his country? Bear the same last name? Do he/she know my name? This guy/gal is staying in UK, so why does he mentioned to me in $? Crap!

Monster Hunter Frontier for XBox 360



If you didn't know that Monster Hunter Frontier has already in operation in 2 years (PC platform) in Asia (South Korea, Japan, Taiwan & Macau), well here's your luck for console gamers. Now Capcom is opening a new server and make it to LIVE. Currently is only for Japan only. Sooner or later it will be establish in other country as well. When it comes across, I think 360's will sell like 'hotcake'.

Is coming out on 24th Jun 2010, where the game itself contains a month's free Gold Membership, code in coupon form for the game in a month period and 13 in-game item. Although I feel is slightly higher than Wii version (3 month free trial), then again, hardcore won't feel anything at all. Cause we're 'addicted'. For members who would like to continue, here's 'Hunter Life Course Coupon' which cost about 1400 yen for 30 days.

Well nothing comes without special 'item'. Microsoft will come out with a 'special edition' wired keyboard for your communication needs which includes an item in-game bonus as well.

Hunters, what are you waiting for? Sharpen your knife and get yourself a piece of armour! Check the game here for your pre-order. In the meantime watch the video for the instalment for PSP itself as well.

Metal Gear 3D Arcade, Vanquish, Socom 4, Lara Croft, Fullmetal Alchemist



Well you got it right, Kojima Production is just won't stop. Konami has announced that franchise 'Metal Gear' will drop into arcade called Metal Gear Arcade or MGA. This will become their first arcade that based on 3D that's coming out only in Japan. With accessories along while we play (3D glasses and sniper handle to name afew), this will be something extraordinary.

On the other hand, Shinji Mikami (creator of Resident Evil) is producing a new sci-fi third person shooter called 'Vanquish'. Will be launch approximately at the end of 2010 for Xbox360 and PS3.

With the advent of Sony's new gadget for PS3 Playstation Move, SOCOM 4 has been announced which is the second instalment for PS3 series. 14 mission in total which can be played up to 32 person under multiplayer mode online. You'll be using the protagonist of Ops Commander squad as the elite NATO that's been send to the Strait of Malacca.

Lara Croft is back with the title 'Lara Croft and the Guardian Of Light'. With the takeover from Square-Enix, fans will hope that this title will bring back the glory during the 90's.

Fullmetal Alchemist : The Promised Date is the newest RPG from Namco Bandai for PSP platform. For the die hard fans out there, check this out.

Ace Combat X2 - Joint Assault



If you'd play the first one, then I think you can't miss this out. What's new for this instalment? Well now you can get to play single-player & multiplayer under system Ad-Hoc, Ad-Hoc Party and Infrastructure.

You can ask for 3 person to join together for campaign mode under Joint Assault Mission System (JAMS) or shoot against each other with 7 other player under VS. mode. JAMS offer each of the player different situation in a simultaneous mission where every action of the member will affect others as well.

For the first time in Ace Combat series, this instalment will roam into the air with 'virtual' real world in our country. Unlike previous instalment where they create a new map and infrastructure, this time they're using the real Japan, England, U.S. etc. Some of the fighters that will be in here includes Su-37 Terminator, F-2A, F1, Typhoon, Su-27 Flanker, A-6E Intruder, F- 16C Falcon, F-14D Super Tomcat and many more.

I hope this will not be the short campaign as the first one. Waiting for the great news of this.

Last Ranker


3 words from Last Ranker - CAPCOM X RPG X PSP. From the long awaiting RPG from CAPCOM since ages (Breath of Fire anyone?), this would be a blast (IMO). From the creator of Minae Matsukawa (Ace Attorney series), directed by Kazuya Niinou (Etrian Odyssey & 7th Dragon) along with Image Epoch (Luminous Arc & Sands of Destruction), you guys can expect something for this title.

From the inspiration on friendship and battle 'manga' style, the story of Last Ranker comes from a world that's been dominated by a world with soldier, where every soldier is determine to win every battle to reach the top on ranking. The soldiers are called Rankers. You'll play solo as Zig with a mission, to become the best.

Its a RPG + Turn-Based element and Real-Time Combat system (something like Magna Carta?). Well here are the synopsis :


Zig (voice over by Hiroshi Kamiya) :

Comes from a nomad place called Cantalera with its own culture. Unlikely to follow the culture with high ambition, he leaves his own place and went to Bazaruta to become the best.

Ren (voice over by Marina Inoue):

Comes to Bazaruta with same timeline with Zig. The only left from the destruction on her own kingdom in Salvodor. Becoming a Ranker to be famous and rebuild her kingdom. From the beginning she's a friend to Zig, but later they'd become enemy.

Faz (voice over by Yuuichi Nakamura):

Comes from Cantalera as well. Loyal to friendship where he came to Bazaruta to stop Zig from leaving Cantalera. Both are best friend from young, they'd become foes.

Check out the Promo video as well

So what are you waiting for? SAVE MORE MONEY! IS OUT NOW!



Starcraft 2 : Wings Of Liberty

In my secondary school period (Grade 4-5?) , everyone (teenager) will swamp into cybercafe just for the LAN game, which include the very first and the successful Starcraft 1. Expansion, Gundam version, what a memory. I myself never really like RTS. Not sure why, maybe i'm suck on it. So from the announcement of this game, Holy Molly. Think I need to upgrade my PC as well (FYI, I never play computer game for a long long time). BLIZZARD, you're tempting me just like CAPCOM.

4 years after the incident : Brood War (expansion of the first), this game follows the main character Jim Raynor (Terran) and his team. His team has failed on the mission (getting rid of the Zerg? and met the new clan Protos?) and now the story continues. Here's some new stuff.

1) From the previous Battlenet that gamers has used on the game DIABLO, now comes the new interface for Battlenet and as usual, is FREE (membership fee).

2) They'd already prepare 2 expansion pack for this game which is 'Heart of the Swarm' (which follows the Zerg line in RPG format) and 'Legacy of the Void' (which follows Protos line in battle/war format).

3) There's no need to mention about the graphic and visual. For sure it will render to 3D platform as well. With alot of cut-scene for your entertainment.

4) Galaxy Editor is replacing StarEdit for your custom maps and mods. Its more complicated compare to the first game and Warcraft 3. Marketplace is a place for you to buy custom maps that's been selling on Battlenet. 

For more info and sight, visit www.starcraft2.com or get your copy here or collector's edition. Think i need to save some for a new Quad-core PC. Sigh.  

Hatsune Miku : Project Diva 2nd


For the first release on the PSP, the sequel is out. Eventually the arcade version : Project DIVA ARCADE will hit the Japan's arcade store. Well if you ask me I'd really no idea what's this game's all about. Anyway check out some info though. Apparently is a music simulation game, almost like the Guitarooman that I'd play before, but adding some cute female anime girl haha. Adding a new feature is 'Module Convert', which is a custom change for the character.

If you miss out the first, it is available via PSN Japan and some added feature only from DLC content. That's not all. Even Sega wouldn't left out the big brother, PS3. called Project DIVA Dreamy Theather, where you can use your PS3 controller. Only on DLC content.

If you're interested on the first one, check it out here. Pre-order is here too.

Super Street Fighter 4 Update

Well if you want a game to be the 'hot cake' on the shelves, then you need to advertise it alot. I mean ALOT. Check my previous post that I wrote. As this Big Hit is coming near soon, do read some of the new update and photo as well.


So what's new before it hit the shelves? Apparently there's a new playable character, Hakan. According to Yoshinori Ono (director of SSFIV), Hakan is a president of an oil company and was looking for the best oil recipe. So is it true? I don't know. Hakan using a martial arts called Yagli Gures, where a type of wrestling using oil as a base to your body. As you can see from the picture, the 'Oil Shower' technique is one of the technique that's available when you're using him. Attack and Defence UP! Woohoo!

Now something special in Japan. Apparently Capcom is collaborating with Kiwa Corporation (owner of 2 huge franchise Chinese restaurant in Japan) Benitora Gyoza Bo (78 outlet) and Wan Zhu Ji (46 outlet) across Japan to promote SSFIV. Talk about marketing! Some of the menu includes Ryu's Curry Noodle, Chun-Li's Red Tenshindon (crab omelette and rice) and T-Hawk's Octopus and Squid. Yum Yum...

As like the first promotion on SFIV, customer will received a special edition character card as a bonus item. This time they're giving out special edition badge for your keep. How's that?

So if you like to pre-order the special edition or even the game itself, look no further.

HOW TO : Play BluRay format movie using VLC player smoothly

Well Blu-Ray movie is readily available for download from (you guess it). The size is big, and the codec is different as well. I'd wasted my cash on a 2GB RAM (burned out) just to realise that it is not my PC system requirement that cause the movie playing something like this :




Then only I know that is THE SETTING for the player to edit. This is where I trial-and-error and finally I get to fix the error (though is not 100% smooth, but it is almost as close as we get just like watching DVD format. (Forgive me for the low-quality example)


Here's how you do it. Open VLC player (recommended 0.9 and above), go to TOOL and to PREFERENCE.





Then go to INPUT/CODECS and to OTHER CODECS. From here you can find something like this.



Go to FFMPEG section. From here, tick all the option available in this page. Then,



look for 'error resilience' and put zero value on it. After that from 'skip the loop for H.264 decoding' click on it and choose 'All'. Done with this, click the Save button.

From my Linux VLC 0.9 version, the video comes out like this.





IMO if you have a better CPU (mine was AMD Dual-Core 5200 with 2GB RAM) then it will perform better. Applies to both Window and Linux as well. Happy viewing.


**Update** : I think this method is only applicable for anime only. When I try to play Final Fantasy 7 : Advent Children Complete, VLC cant render it smoothly on some scene. Well I guess I need to get the hardcopy and PS3 as well. Sigh!

Reason why Xbox 360 is not going well in Asia country...

Well, I'm not to be a 'racist' in consoles, but on the sales unit that you can read weekly, clearly Sony and Nintendo tops the chart compare to Xbox360. For what reason? Why Asia country especially Japan could not accept this console? Well here is some of my thought...

1) As a new player in gaming industry for Microsoft (Nintendo has SNES,N64. Sony has PS1,PS2. Sega has DC, MegaDrive) back in the 90's, many doubt of the game library available for Xbox and 360 when it first launch. Well clearly Xbox has not so many 'Asian' oriented games. All they had is mostly focus NBA,FPS and Racing. They do have RPG, but is not JRPG. Mind me but I really cant get myself into American RPG like Fable.

2) As 360 launch, the system itself do have much more system failure compare to then Wii and PS3. Which is why warranty posted for Microsoft has extended to cover up the famous RROD. BUT after the new revision of the hardware (which include JASPER), the 360 has stabilize and hardware failure is a minor problem.

3) As the 'war' between HD-DVD and BluRay format back then, it was clearly the winner would be SONY's own format. When the 'war' is over, BluRay will go futher, which leaves 360 still using DVD. This post some thought for the gamer as well. PS2 is using DVD, so why gamers want to limit to their gameplay to DVD-format by getting 360? Is like a little step forward by producing a nicer graphic and sound only. Still only playing DVD movie, unlike PS3 is playing BluRay movie.

4) If you're on the gaming industry back in the era of PS2, Japan can sell well with that particular unit, solely is to play DVD movie. Yes they mainly want to brought PS2 by watching movie with it. Due to the game library as well, for sure PS2 will sell well compare to Xbox. SO with the PS3 now in BluRay format, SONY try to gamble it again with this same tactic, solely for BluRay movie. Well if you check the market even now, the cheapest BluRay player would be? You guess it. PS3. As more movie is coming out in BluRay format as well (Anime, Drama, Concert) and the capacity of the disc itself, for sure if you're a consumer like me, which would you want to choose? Xbox360 or PS3?

5) With the rising of the BluRay format, region locked has been reduced to only 3 region (compare to DVD about 7-8 if not mistaken), which is a good news for consumer as they woudn't need to worry so much about it. Best of all for gamers. PS3 has no region locked on the game itself (unlike Wii and 360 which divide it to NTSC/U, PAL, NTSC/J, Asia). So consumer that want to import the game, no worry as well. The worry is the language barrier only. NO SYSTEM CRASH like Wii itself.

6) In my country, Xbox360 is still 'sellable' due to 'jack-sparrow'. If consumer like me that was thinking what to choose if I'm choosing a console that solely playing original, my pick would be PS3 as well.

There you have it. THIS IS JUST SOLELY IMO only, not the Japanese. If I have a friend from Japan, I'll update to you guys too.
