Football + Parkour = Awesome

What is that all about? Football? Parkour? Oh it’s just a FIFA Street 3 commercial.

The Return of Johnny Magic

I haven't played Magic for quite a long time. Not since the Time Spiral. Okay, that seems not that long ago, but before Time Spiral, the last time I played Magic was Legions. I may never play Magic again in the foreseeable future but I still follow the events from time to time.

This past weekend was the Pro Tour - KL. The biggest Magic event (sans Invitationals) ever held in Malaysia. And what better way to kick off the 2008 with one of the best player in the history of Magic winning the tournament. No, not Kai Budde. Jon Finkel had just made a comeback.

I don't know much about Magic. Not the recent events, that is. However, back in the days, when you mentioned best player, it will always be Jon Finkel or Kai Budde. And that very same Jon Finkel just won PT - KL.

The Finkeltron is back.

Darkly Dreaming Rexxter

This is an entry that is usually being posted on my other blog but since this one is game-related, you guessed it, I'm posting it here. It's called Darkly Dreaming Rexxter. This is where I tell a dream that I had.

First thing first, as being posted before, I had succumbed to eD's (and DeKach's) nagging and am now officially a WoW-addict. How addicted? Well, let's begin with today's Darkly Dreaming Rexxter to see just how addicted I am.

So, I was sitting down at a train station. From the look of it, I'm guessing it's the Subang Jaya train station. I was wearing earphones. And the fucking Stormwind theme was playing. I could also see some squirrels around the building. Then I got an SMS from eD.

"check ur mail"

So I got my ass up, went out of the station, and conveniently there was a mailbox in the middle of the road. There were a raptor egg and a bear meat along with a parchment which I did not bother to read. I cracked the egg, and for some reason, there was fucking broadsword in there.

"Woi," I heard eD's voice from the distance. I saw him walking down with an axe in his hand. "Jom masuk instance." So I followed him towards the dungeon. The dungeon called Carrefour's basement parking. At the entrance there stood Ariza with a huge yellow exclamation mark floating over his head. eD did some talking while I swung my sword at an innocent squirrel. Then the exclamation mark turned silver. That meant that eD had taken a quest from Ariza. So off into the basement carpark we sent.

A few steps into the carpark and I saw a huge dragon thrashing around.

"Go tank," eD said to me. "Fuck no," I said. While we were arguing over who should be the tank, the dragon spat out a fireball right at my face. I was on fire. Literally. So I slapped around, trying to put off the fire. And one slap later, I woke up from the sleep.

"What the fuck?" I said almost out loud. I guess there's such thing as too much gaming for me.

Damn it eD. Look at what you've done to me.
