Just a Quickie post of my latest unboxing. Resident Evil: Revelations HD for the PS3.
Finally the game is out and here’s my unboxing video for for the PS3 version of the game.
Please do note that this is the limited Red Son edition steelcase version which can be bought at h ere in the Philippines if you guys pre-order it. Eventually, if there would be enough stocks left, they can sell it for those who didn’t pre-order the game as well.
Also, the game is in R2 or Region 2 and the DLC’s from other regions (Region 1 and Region 3) hasn’t been tested yet if they are compatible or not. What lured me into getting this edition is that it includes alot of DLC’s. Apart from the free Red Son Skins, It also includes 20 additional missions as well as another set of DL’Cs that includes Zombie skins, Batman Arkham City pack skins and an addtional skin for Batman which is inspired from the Blackest Night series. Oh and did i mention that it comes in the sexy red colored steelbook as well? hehehe!
I’ll be doing more unboxing videos on my blogsite so stay tuned.
Happy Hearts Day Everyone! Enjoy this music video from Hello World entitled S.B.N.T (Sick But Not Tired)
Im so proud of you guys! Ilabas ang EP and Album! This is the life! yeah!
Oh and the mixtape can be found by clicking this link
First off, Happy 2013 everyboday! I haven’t done this one for quite sometime but rest assured, i’ll try to make videos of my unboxing eof either new games, gadgets or maybe even video reviews.
To Start off, here’s my first unboxing video for this year which is DMC: Devil May Cry for the PS3. This is a reboot on the series and has been a long time controversy for fans of the series. Below is the unboxing video of the Asian edition which includes a limited edition cellphone back cover case (available on iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 an S3 mobile phones)
So with that, enjoy the rest of the video below. Pardon for the shaky video and quick editing. This will start to improve within the year.
For those of you who don’t know, im currently using this rebranded phone from Cherry Mobile. It’s the Cherry Mobile Flare. at it’s price this is one bad-ass android phone that sports a Dual core Snapdragon Processor, TFT screen (though it looks like IPS if you ask me) 4.0 inch screen and most of all, it’s only 3,999. What more could you ask for?
Earlier today, Cherry Mobile rolled out their software update and made available to the public. I tried it for myself and it fixes a couple of things.
Here’s the changelog so far:
This fix was floating about weeks ago and the flare community have been doing tweaks on it already. Though i opted to wait for the official release from Cherry Mobile before i updated my unit.
Here are the steps to update your Flare. Please do note that the steps provided below are the same one from what i got from the Cherry Mobile page. Proceed at you own risk:
1. Save the update file to the root of the SD card. Turn off the phone. Make sure phone is charged atleast 15%.
2. Press and hold Power+volume Up for a few seconds. It will display first a green screen.
3. Release the button after the screen shows a red display to show the Android sytem revocery.
4. Select apply update from external storage’ and select the update file. Use volume keys to select and power key to confirm.
5. The phone will update. After update is finish, select reboot system now.
Note: SD Card update will not erase multimedia files like photos. It will just erase saved application. It is also advisable to do Factory data reset after doing SD card update.
Though with regards to the steps, i haven’t done the last one which is factory data rest as im not sure if this will erase all the apps that i have on my phone.
Right now, the servers are hammered and i would like to share my own little way of helping the community by providing the download link just in case Cherry is still not able to address their filehost. Pretty weird as they don’t have an FTP server to cater the thousands of users waiting for the update to be released.
Hello again! i bring you the other half of the mixtape. Sorry for the late post as i was hospitalized on new year’s day (don’t worry folks, fingers are still complete)
Without further adieu, here’s the list in no particular order:
And as always, Go get the mixtape by clicking here
2012 is about to close and with that, i bring you the annual year end mixtapes. For those of you who are familiar with this annual giveaway, i usually give out mixtapes by end of year by either famous and or up and coming artists and or songs both local and international. It can also be my fave tracks for the past year. As much as i wanted to keep it to only 12 tracks, heck, it’s more than 12.
Here are the tracks expected in no particular order on the mixtape:

The last time we heard these guys, we were infected with their tunes like Themesongs, Tsuper Duper and danced to Patintero and Sa Madaling Salita. Now, their much awaited follow-up to Themesongs has been unleashed and truly, it was worth the wait.
Tama na ang Drama, the band’s latest album is now available at their gigs, via Wide Eyed Records online and Fully Booked High Street at the moment though there is still no word on whether it will be available on your favorite record bars and i do hope that this happens soon as for me this is a must buy for you out there.
Ok, so the album consists of 15 tracks and 1 hidden track. The cover above looks somewhat unique to those out there in the market. Though there are no inlay sleeve, no lyrics sheet (though as i asked their drummer and a good friend of mine if there would be lyrics available to the public, his answer was it will be available online soon) so we can all sing along to the songs in the album.
Here’s a rundown of the tracks:
Iyong – This track was made available a few days before the actual album launch and you can hear in thir track the heavy guitar riffs, catchy lyrics and in totality, deserves to be one of the singles in the album.
Wala Lang – Second track that still features Selena on vocals, Reminds me of their old tracks from their first album. Another strong track.
Baliktad – Owel is back on vocals on this one. The track starts of slow and right in the middle, it changes it’s tempo and up till the end. One short track yet something worth listening to…. i liked the progression on the start of the ”O…. aking sinta…..” line
Pait - This time, the album goes on a slow one… parap-pap parara raappp
Nakauwi Na - I’ve been hearing this way before the release of the album and the moment i started listening to it, i said crap, this is one nice song and i would love to hear this one over and over again and lo and behold, it’s included in the album. One of the gems in the album and for Shirley as well as this proves that OPM is not really dead at all.
Polygonal Graphs - Honestly, up to this point, i can still hear shades of Broken Social Scene on the album and this track haunts me of their style. Another track worth listening to.
Saan Na - Another short track, liked the solo part
Distansya - Slow track with sax right on track… slow, sweet and sexy if you ask me.
Glacier – The song starts slow and as the track progresses, you can hear the heavy guitar riffs then ends just like that. Another noteworthy track from the band
Acid Reflux - Low and behold, the band’s manager and member as well of the band does vocal duties on this one. The breakdown on the middle part reminds of a Santana guitar lead as well as the tempo makes me want to shout ole! Nicely done!
Single Bed – Is it me or this track reminds on the middle part of Cambio’s Call center song? another strong track you must listen to. Slide guitar leads? check on this track.
Ewan Ko - No, this is not the Soapdish track im telling you right away. Groovy track that only Shirley can deliver.
Di na babalik – Another gem on the album, this song was featured the indie file “Ang Nawawala” both Owel And Selena’s voice blends in perfectly. another strong single for the album.
Tama na ang drama – Acoustic track right down to the brush sticks that was used for the drums, this track also features some bass lines that fits the song as well.
Taksil - The last track on the album (or is it?) and a fitting end for the album. Again, listen closely to the lyrics and enjoy. Oh and listen to it up until the end to hear the hidden track im telling you which i still have no idea what’s the title of it.
Overall, this album proves the following points:
The wait is worth it. Even though there are some tracks that are least to my taste (i can count around 2-3 track only) still, i can definitely recommend the album to each and everyone out there. These are the kind of stuff that they should be playing on the airwaves instead of these (forgive me) k-pop songs that only some can understand. Good job on the album and if you will have the chance to grab the album, please do so.
I’ll give it an outstanding 5 out of 5 if you ask me even thought there shortcomings on some of the tracks.
This has been the talks of the local gaming sites, forums and even news since early Tuesday morning. Datablitz was raided for “allegedly” selling pirated stuff… well as the first reports came in. Afterwards, the accusation of selling pirated games changed to “smuggled”. What’s the whole cause of this fiasco? The unauthorized distribution of NBA 2K13 by Datablitz.
As of this post, both X-Play and Datablitz already sent out formal statements to the public addressing their sides on the said matter. And there’s an update as posted by local gaming site Back2Gaming that “allegedly” the copies of NBA 2K13 sold by Datablitz were “smuggled”
So now, what happened to the whole “pirated” thing?
For local gaming news, this is sad considering that Datablitz is one of the reputable shops here in the Philippines that sells authentic, original and licensed games. I for myself have been a customer since the good old days of PC gaming. Heck, almost all of my games that i unbox once in a while was bought in Datablitz
Okay, enough of the jokes and let’s get through this. Clearly, one side wants to rack in cash by selling 2k13 overpriced and the other other one is selling the same game at a cheaper price. Clearly, you know where most of the people will side (including me) i mean come on, let’s be practical nowadays. NBA 2K13 is one of the most sought after basketball game franchise (it even shut down it’s competitor) and when you try to sell it and mark up the price, people will still buy it. The problem is, the markup is TOO DAMN HIGH! correct me if im wrong but Datablitz sells it at around 2095 (around exactly 1995 if you buy it in cash) compared to 2595? And what does this almost 2.6k game have that the cheaper one doesn’t have? Raffle with prizes. Honestly, i would still go on for the cheaper price one.
Also, the erranous reports are getting out of hand. Get the facts straight. How can a well established store that is known to sell original and legitimate stuff (which by the way, doesn’t encourage the buyers to mod their units but instead go for the original one) sell “pirated” stuff? and now it’s smuggled? So does that mean that if the game is cheap, it’s already pirated? smuggled? lemme see, how much does a pirated movie cost? does it cost 2,00 pesos? common sense people.
As for me, coming in from the game development line of work, i have learned to appreciate of going legitimate and original when it comes to games and softwares (before i use these illegal stuff) but slowly, im going legit. Heck i’m even planning to get Windows 8 in the next few weeks.
As i visited the Parksquare branch earlier, i saw that there were no copies of NBA 2k13 on their store. It was already confiscated…. so after confiscation, what’s next? i do hope that these confiscated items will not be distributed by the so-called “exclusive” distributor and sell it with their price tag on it. Or probably since Christmas season is here, gifts! gifts everywhere (just kidding!)
Bottomline, i hope this issue get settled soon. Also, i do hope that with proper news handling, proper talks on both sides, fair and equal justice will be served. Please let us not go back and resort to piracy again if games will be sold here and it’s overpriced. For now, im not buying an overpriced NBA 2K13 for the PC. i’ll just go and buy it on Steam…. oh wait, can they sue steam? hehehe!
