Some things I've learned....

(1) An Engineer can do with 10 cent what a fool can do with a Euro.

(2) "Puff" - unimportant; insignificant; unworthy of study by engineering students; waste of time

(3) It's better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you're stupid than to open it and prove them right!

(4) Blockwork people and concrete people can never work on the same site... Apparently they don't like each other....

(5) It's official; I'm fantastic!

The Playstation War Machine Marches On....

The allegedley ill-fated PS3 released by Sony 14 months ago is now poised to enter its golden era. Upon release, it was bashed by gadget geeks and Xbox gamers and the likes, but it has weathered the storm and now the forums which were once bubbling with anti-Sony vibes have all but disappeared. Perhaps the greatest sign of just how much the big black box is appreciated is that in its first year it equalled the amount of Xbox 360's that were sold in its first year, and despite huge releases for Microsoft last year including Halo 3, Mass Effect and Bioshock amongst others, the PS3 is now set to unleash hell on the gaming world...and I mean that in a good way!

Exclusives on the line for 2008 include Metal Gear Solid 4, White Knight Chronicles, Resistance 2, Gran Turismo 5: Prologue (and maybe the actual GT5 too!), Final Fantasy XIII, and Killzone 2. In comparison to its competitors line-ups, it's the clear winner, though in Microsoft's case it is acceptable given that last year was such a huge year!

Not only has Sony got these great games in store, but the hotly anticipated "Home" service for its PSN users, aswell as support for DivX and likely other formats in the future on its Internet service, PLUS the Dualshock 3 and even more Blu-Ray DVD's on the way there's never been a better time to own/buy a PS3. Most recently Microsoft announced that it was in talks over Blu-Ray technology - something Sony already built into their PS3. With that in mind, once Microsoft join Sony on the Blu-Ray bandwagon, the likelihood that people will buy a PS3 will further increase, given that it is the only console to support Blu-Ray and the suckers who bought HD-DVD players will be fuming (as no other companies will continue to produce HD-DVDs).

If those aren't reason enough to buy the PS3 over its competitors, look no further than free-online gaming, something which has to be PAID for on Xbox. Admittedly upon its release, the 360 versions of multiplatform games far outpaced their PS3 counterparts. However, now that developers have had time to work on the PS3 (most notably the excellent Call of Duty 4 released last year), it is very hard to discern the quality of one from the other - i.e. whether you buy a multiplatform game (for example the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Unleashed), you no longer have to worry about which it looks better on, as it will be virtually identical - although this is purely dependent on the developer... Assassin's Creed anyone?

In short, 2008 is gonna be a good year for gaming, most notably in the PS3's corner. Here's a taste of things to come:

Found some cool stuff here http://www.gamerfuse.com Grand Chase “Grand Chase” is the first real time online fighting game that allows up to six players to fight one another. The game features arcade-style controls that makes it easy to learn, and offers combo attacks which fighting game enthusiasts will enjoy. There are currently nine characters to choose from in the English version of “Grand Chase,” each of which has a unique fighting style, weapon, and four job upgrades as you level up. “Grand Chase” isn't an MMO with only six players in each match, but it allows you to fight another team in 3 vs 3, or play with 5 other players in a 6-player competition against the computer.

A motivating discussion is worth comment.
