Crazy Kart Trailer 3

You may have seen both the official trailers of Crazy Kart over at

Meanwhile, the CBT for Crazy Kart is really fun (and crazy too). In fact, I’ve seen some eager karters reach level 50 or more already. Idol! If you still haven’t tried the CBT, do so now.

Now, I just want to share with you the third official Crazy Kart trailer. It’s a little something I did over the weekend.

I hope you like it…

Guitar Hero Now Has Drums

That’s right!

The soon-to-be-released Guitar Hero: World Tour has added a drum set, mic and a brand new spanking design to their guitar as part of an entirely package and experience. Obviously in an effort to pounce on Rock Band, the guys at Guitar Hero are at it to make both gameplay and gadgets shine with innovation and clever ideas (like the Music Creator) that I hope won’t disappoint.

What’s new with the GH drums? One word – cymbals! Check it out…


Diablo 3 First Look

Recently, I was blog hopping and managed to catch Diablo 3 news at, one of my favorite new geek blogs.

It seems that Blizzard has finally unveiled one of the most anticipated games of our time. And I promise you, the cinematic trailer will impress you and then the gameplay demo will blow your mind away.

Prepare for graphic, gore and gaming orgasm.

It’s finally here…

Diablo 3.

A Call For Heroes

The drums of war beat wildly into the night. The dark skies light up as armies raise their weapons and shout their battle cries. In this time of conflict, despair, and trial – legends will be made, immortals will rise, and heroes will be born. Historians will write about their deeds and bards will sing of their glory. 

From the Asgardian realm of Midgard, the war-torn continent of Pangu, the harsh deserts of Novus, the hard courts of Freestyle, and the vast islands of Roika… 

… hails a new breed of heroes.

They’re coming.


Metal Gear Solid 4 Gets Perfect Review

Gamespot has just given Hideo Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots a perfect 10.

Before this, GTA 4 was also given a perfect score. Meanwhile, back to MGS4… Gamespot wrote; “Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is the most technically stunning video game ever made. It’s also a fine example of storytelling prowess within its medium, combining gameplay and narrative so slickly and beautifully that it’s impossible to extricate one from the other.”

After several months of delay, MGS 4 was finally released for the PS3 jast June 12. At this point, the game already boosted sales of the PS3 in Japan by as much as 700%. Sony is surely happy with this. MGS4 has just given the console a new lease on life.


Video: Jobert and his Guild

I’ve always wanted to make my own viral, youtube video. And this is my first attempt at one. Entitled, “Jobert and his RF Guild”, this is partially inspired by great, Filipino, youtube hits such as Benjo and the 300.

I just found out that the makers of ‘Benjo’ are RF players (it says so in the end-credits). Props to the great creativity! I had a blast and laughed my heart out even if I was just reading the sub-titles.

Meanwhile, the video below is taken from the classic Japanese series, Lone Wolf and Cub (circa 1972). I just added some subtitles to create the story of “Jobert”, a typical Pinoy player who borrows in-game items… and then does the absurd.

I hope you’ll like it. Hit jump to see the video


Crazy Kart Controls

Crazy Kart has a very simple control system. Although simple, mastery of the game, the maps and the items isn’t easy as it seems. That’s all part of the fun and the challenge.

The basics are just the arrow keys, up-down-left-right. Like any racing game, UP accelerates, DOWN is braking and left/right are steering. You can only switch power-ups once in a race btw.

The most important thing to master is the drift. You have to drift at tight turns to avoid bumping into railings or running into mud or water. These will cost you time. Some maps call for drifting a lot (the advanced maps).


Video: Crazy Kart CBT

I’ve been playing the CBT of Crazy Kart for some time now. The game is fast and fun, that much I can tell you.

I’ve also been receiving a lot of your feedback via email and thank you for all the kind words and also for reporting some of the minor bugs and errors during the CBT. There are now a lot of players inside the games and the rooms are always full. It takes a mastery of the drift, the proper “curving” and strategy on using the “weapons” that makes the game exciting, challenging and fun. There are various degrees of difficulty when it comes to maps too.

The game gurus (or the GPS guys – Game Play Specialists) have helped me do an in-game video of the actual CBT. Thanks guys, I owe you merienda. There are individual and team races but the team races are the most fun.

Let’s see the video, shall we?

Signal Number 3 Now Up for Metro Manila

Emergency posts, gents!

As I write this, the winds howl like rabid wolves outside. In a latest update, news on the Internet stated that “Metro Manila and neighboring provinces are now under public storm warning Signal Number 3 as typhoon Frank (international codename Fengshen) again changed course and is now barreling its way towards southern Luzon, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services (PAGASA) said Saturday evening.”

The electricity here has been down for at least 3 times. Better get your flashlights ready, take off the plugs from your PCs, TVs and air conditioning. Brace yourselves. This is going be bad.
