The Periodic Table of Gaming

Bored of the same old Periodic Table of Elements?
Tired of seeing the bland and boring layout of the periodic table?
Then if you want to spiced up your chemistry subject, the dudes at iheartchaos.com made a really cool periodic table of video game characters for you

I know some of you will say, "dude, Batman isn't a video game character" well ya, he's a comic book character, but Batman has some kickass games on the NES and SNES, so he's definitely count as a video game character.

And here's another Periodic Table from Pixel Fantasy but this time instead of gaming characters, this dude uses controllers of gaming consoles and handhelds

although this version is not the actual periodic table, but the idea of compiling the different controllers was really cool

so there you have it, stay tuned for more cool stuffs in gaming in the future
till next time...

Final Fantasy Meets Tower Defense

What happens when Final Fantasy goes overboard and turned into a tower defense game

Well, Square-Enix made that crazy idea and created Crystal Defenders which is available for the Wiiware (for Nintendo Wii) and also...for the IPhone and IPod Touch, with follow up releases for the Xbox Live Arcade (for Xbox 360) and for the PlayStation Network (for the PlayStation 3)

The gameplay and concept is similar to a traditional tower defense game
(you defend your base from incoming attackers by setting up towers on the road, you can also upgrade your towers for higher damage, of course the attackers get tougher after a number of waves)

Crystal Defenders takes place after the events of Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift and features units from the Final Fantasy Tactics series. The objective of the game is for the player to stop waves of monsters from stealing a cache of crystals in a maze by strategically positioning units to destroy them before they escape with their loot. Each unit has their own special attributes, and have particular strengths and weakness against certain enemies. The game features 300 stages spread across three chapters of increasing challenge

A Salute to Francis Magalona

Yesterday we lost a great man in the music industry, a great man who was also known as The Man from Manila, the Master Rapper.

Francis Magalona also known as FrancisM, a prominent Filipino rapper, songwriter, producer, actor, director, and photographer. Often hailed as the "King of Pinoy Rap", he was considered a legend in the Philippine music community.

With the success of his earliest albums, he was the first Filipino rapper in the Philippines cross over to the mainstream. He is also credited for having pioneered the merging of rap with Pinoy rock, becoming a significant influence to artists in that genre as well. He was also a popular television host, notably on MTV Asia where he served as one of the channel's first Filipino VJs, and on noontime variety television show Eat Bulaga!.

Francis Magalona died on March 6, 2009 at the age of 44 due to acute myelogenous leukemia.

For me he is the only pinoy rapper whose music is worth listening and his music is the only rap music that shows true patriotism to his country

His great legacy will forever be in our hearts...
Rest in peace Master Rapper

you can also visit Francis Magalona's blog to pay your respects
