Ahhh.. the new Prince Of Persia : The Forgotten Sands. It's still the same POP game with lots of cool jumping and platforming sequences. But the fighting.. *gah*... the fighting... the first time I saw 20 sand creatures pop up all over me and I just kill them but flailing my sword around madly I remembered the quote of the developer in one of the trailers. "We wanted to make fighting more exciting again!" Gheeezz.. trying to make it Prince Of Persia Musuo DOESN'T make fighting better!

And of course, the main question I ask myself whenever I play any PoP game except for the previous Prince Of Persia 2008 is how the HECK did they get around BEFORE the city was destoyed and in ruins? The whole architecture and design of the place DOESN'T FUNCTION in the normal sense. You have pressure plates on the walls, monkey bar switches 2 stories high that needs an off the wall jump to work. It makes it feel as if EVERYONE in the PoP universe can do what you do.

In the 2008 PoP you can see that the city is in ruins, and the switches and stuff were generally in proper logical places. And when asked "How DID you get around this place?" Elika tells you the obvious that before the city was decayed and ruined there were actual walkways and paths.

Intending to use the Hard Disk internally in his notebook. One of my colleagues cracked open his 1TB Western Digital Essentials USB drive and was greeted by this.

WD didn't just stick a simple 2.5" SATA drive onto a SATA to USB board and then put it in a case. WD CUSTOM MADE a hard drive interface board that has said SATA to USB functionality included. So there's no SATA port on this hard drive and thus sales of this external drive won't cut into sales of their actual notebook drives since you can't just easily rip apart an external drive and use it in your notebook.

Even if this thing had a normal SATA connector. This 1TB drive is thicker than a standard notebook drive and wouldn't fit in a standard slot anyway!

So.. Super Street Fighter IV was released a few days ago and I've been enjoying a LOT of online matches. The match finding system is much improved about paring people with proper ping levels. Of course when you prefer connection speed instead of similar skill... The fights can get quite interesting.

My weapon of choice is of course the trusty porn stick.

But then after enjoying some very great and smooth matches. I decided I should get serious about the fight.

I need something with a wider heavier base that doesn't slide around.

Something with a nice clickaty click joystick.

Guess I can't complain about the controls when I lose now eh?

Is that sometimes they don't want to show up. I have to refresh the page to make them appear. Right now with our internet being shot to hell it's hard for me to tell if it's the line or problem with code.
