I’ll be trying to keep GGF as short as possible, partly because it takes forever to load if it’s too long and has too many pictures, and partly because I have less time these days to play games and attend gaming events, resulting in having fewer things to blog about.
That kinda works out well, really. I’m sure you guys don’t really like reading blog entries that goes on forever, anyway.
Or do you?

Sexy witch elf in WAR
So, I paid $129 for a Collector’s Edition Warhammer Online to enjoy the game way earlier than most of the world (about two weeks earlier).
Servers have been up for CE owners for one week already, but I’ve been so busy that all I’ve managed to learn about the game is that Witch Elves are damn sexy.
I was very disappointed with the game when I first logged in (although keeping in mind that the game is still in beta and it could very well still undergo a huge face lift just before retail.
The graphics and animation are so yesterday, the character faces are ugly, the costumes are horrible (except for the witch elves’) and the gameplay is messy.
The moment I logged in, I didn’t feel like playing anymore.
There is no friendly tutorial to introduce you to the world, with an introduction sequence and an NPC to tell you what’s up. Instead, you’re dumped right into the middle of chaos to figure it out yourself.
But I don’t want to be too judgemental at this point of time. The retail launch could surprise me yet.
And I did manage to take this rather nice screenshot.
And I had fun flying halfway around the world to meet up with some guildies so we could try creating a guild.
We’re playing on the Darklands server, in the Destruction realm. Send me a “hi” if you bump into me, although that will be quite rare.
Pata pata pata pon!
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaahh!! The irritatingly cute little eyeballs are back! That is, on the Goonfather’s PSP!
He hasn’t played this game for months and then, suddenly, he’s gotten himself addicted to it again. That means I’m hearing “Pata pata pata pon! FEEEEVERRRRR!!!” whenever he’s around.
What’s worse, he’s playing it on the PC, too.
Yes, you can play Patapon on the PC now.
It’s more of a demo, though, that gives you exactly five minutes of fun. And the gameplay is a very simplified version of the PSP’s game. But it has the same hysterical eyeballs oozing cuteness with every chant.
Go check it out if you want to get addicted and annoy your family.
Question Number 3
Woot! Here’s the third question for the Norton Internet Security 2009 contest! :)
Question #3: People who don’t use Microsoft Windows are safe. The bad guys take advantage of Windows users because it is easy, and leave Linux and Macintosh users alone. True or False?
Only one more question to go after this!

Soul Calibur IV customised costumes
I recently ran a Soul Calibur IV costume contest at my Xbox blog and I want to share with you some of the creations submitted by SC4 fans!
The winner, DeZmonD88, submitted 29 costumes and made a really awesome video showcasing his costumes. Check it out!
He even created a Ronald McDonalds costume. LOLOLOL. Funny.
DeZmonD88 wins a chance to play SC4 with me on Xbox LIVE. (Actually, it’s not so much playing with me as thrashing me because I’m a noob.) He also wins a beautiful Soul Calibur IV poster.
Er… I don’t think it looks quite like me, but good effort, anyway! :P Nizam wins an SC4 poster! Yay!
My Xbox 360 is quite naughty
I didn’t know my Xbox 360 could be such a scamp until I had to write about his non-gaming capabilites for my iTest campaign.
In case you haven’t been following my iTest blog, please hop over to meet Aristotle now. See what I have to put up with besides the Goonfather.
Three entries already up:
More coming daily.

You may have noticed that there is no Ask the Goonfather this week. Well, there are two possible reasons for this:
- No one is sending him questions to be answered.
- He is receiving questions but is pretending not to have received them so he can escape Q&A duty.
So, which is the correct answer? lol.
(This isn’t a quiz. Cos I don’t know the answer, either.)
Woot! I survived another week! Did you? =)
