New games abound!

I walked into ETA games shop today at the Mall and lo and behold, new releases were abound~! First up is the Guitar Hero on Tour for the Nintendo DS ($105), Space Invaders Extreme for the PSP ($50) and Battlefield: Bad Company (PS3) are on sale as of today.

The reviews for the games can be found here, here and here respectively.

One thing to note though, ETA has two versions of Battlefield: Bad Company available in their stores, The gold edition ($108) and normal casing ($103).

However, with Sony shutting down their Playstation Network for the next hours or so, B:BC online gaming will have to wait for a bit.

Happy hunting!

update: the PS network is on!

BruGamers.net Beta Forum

HEY GUYS, I'm not sure how many of you are gamers but I'm running a beta forum at BruGamers.net on ShutterSpeech.com's server to test my bandwidth in association with Bruneian Gamers Online (BruGamers.com) website.

We have my categories from the usual consoles (Playstations, Xboxes and Nintendos) to PC as well as Mobile and casual gaming. On topic discussions are also available for those who feel like discussing serious debates online as well as off topic where you can just start whatever you want without being bothered with which categories you want to be in.

So help us out by joining and registering at BruGamers.net. I'm sure there's a tiny gamer in you even if you aren't that big.

PS: Remember, BruGamers.net is the forum while BruGamers.com is the blog.

Viva Pinata on DS

Just saw this over at xbox360fanboy.com. They reported that Viva Pinata will be extending their franchise over to the DS as they did with their TV shows and PC version. Look out for this if you guys like this x360 colourful game.

BioShock 3

With its unsurprising PS3 announcement, BioShock is set to get two more sequels. Not only will there be a BioShock 2, a third one is in plans to make this series a trilogy.

This is not surprising seeing how successful this game is on the xbox360 and the achievements it has garnered since released. The movie is also in the works, hoping that it will release simultaneously with BioShock 2.

Anyone picking this up for the PS3 extra contents?

GHIII DragonForce 100%

I don't know if you guys have seen this but I was reading joystiq and saw a post on this guy who played Guitar Hero III's hardest song and completed it 100%. The song? It's rather obvious to GHIII's fans, DragonForce's Through The Fires and The Flames.

I have got to congratulate this guy. He obviously spends a lot of time on GH. Not a lot of people can do that. Maybe I should quit my day job and try to get 100% too.

See Afrika At Home

Remember Afrika? Yes, that "game" shown during the early years of the PS3. Well, turns out it's not dead. It has resurfaced, not only with news, but with a website and a release date.

With a 28th August, 2008 release date, the game seems to only be available for Japan. No word yet on whether it will come out in other places. The game looks like a simulation of the Sahara where you can take snapshots of animals and the surroundings. Not sure what else it could do. If you could read Japanese, you are free to check out their official website here. Also, a trailer follows. Yes, it's in-game gameplay.

I have to say though that this would be interesting for photography enthusiasts. I am.

PS: Just a short advert, I've finally managed to make use of my 150gig of space on my server. Check out shutterspeech.com for my portfolio.
