Ironman's showing today. The little boy inside of me is pretty excited as heck since I have been a really big Ironman fan since the first time I played Captain America and the avengers on the coin-op arcades before. The other part of me is trying hard to lower my expectations so I don't
get disappointed especially after watching the disappointing trailer.

My first taste of Ironman on the arcades

Regardless, I'll pay my good money to go and watch Ironman with the thought of "this is going to suck" at the back of my head. Then I'll walk out and say, "I was right"... I would LOVE to be wrong about this though. -sigh-

One of the biggest gaming events of the year is almost here. On tuesday Take-2 will release Grand theft auto 4, the latest game in the GTA series. Everyone who knows anything about games and has a PS3 or Xbot is pretty excited about this in some way, shape or form. It's in the lips of the children and everyone's talking about it!


I have my pre-orders in already and I expect to get this by early May; then I will say goodbye to my social life. What's interesting is that apart from being excited about the game, I am also pretty excited about how non-gamers will be receiving this game and making funny comments about it. Dubbed "car-jacking simulator" or "murder simulator" before, it's going to be pretty entertaining either way!

I was looking through the net for an animated clock gif for a presentation I'm making for our Site event and I just happen to stumble on this site. It's a simple timer but done in a way I have never seen before. It's just insanely mezmerizing. Just check out the site and see what I'm talking about

Companies put out TV commercials in between shows to let you know some basic stuff about their product like:
  • what the product is all about, and;
  • why you would buy it, and probably
  • price

Having said this, advertisers normally need to squeeze all that creative juice to come up with something that will stick in people's heads. I just can't help noticing that there are some dumb commercials out there.

Imagine the commercial starting with a zoomed image of 2 kids shouting into the wind and laughing at the same time. Picture zooms out, you see that the kids are shouting into an electric fan blowing into their faces, moving along with the fan while it oscillates. This goes on for about 10 seconds, then the killer tag line comes out...

"Sanyo Electric fan -- Anti-boredom"


Lame. But then again, it made an impression. Not enough for me to go out and buy it to stave off boredom though. Not really sure what they wanted to achieve with this.
