wow fix


After being wowed by the World of Warcraft open beta, I'm feeling withdrawal symptoms since I haven't gotten my hands yet on the retail game. WoW was launched in North America, Australia and New Zealand on Nov. 23.

Now you know one of the things on my Christmas wish list.

double the fun?


I'm still waiting for the Sony PSP, but with the launch of the Nintendo DS dual screen portable game player in the US on Nov. 21, we now have another gadget to lust after this Christmas.

Read about it in YOU Technogear.

Netgames already has plenty to offer with the 3D online game Khan, while Level Up has the popular Ragnarok Online. But what happens when these two team up and bring in the big guns?

Read this YOU Technogear story to find out.

Sam loves this PC game -- she can manipulate the mouse to make the boat turn left and right and even round corners. But she also giggles while trying to run over pedestrians and her boating instructor, Mrs. Puff the puffer fish. Posted by Hello

That's RJ Maclang, formerly of Intel and now sales and marketing director of Netgames, the Philippine publisher of the Khan massively multiplayer online game. Saw him again after a long while when we had a meeting this afternoon at the Netgames office. I've known RJ from way back during the days of the first HP-Intel Synergy event at El Nido, when Pia Guanio was still an associate editor of an Internet lifestyle magazine and joined us in Palawan. Posted by Hello

Head for the coast. By the way, before I forget, can I just say how irritating that mineshaft was? Posted by Hello

This town ain't big enough for all of us. Can't really show screenshots from this chapter, unless you fancy lots of chopped headcrabs, zombies (both the regular and fast kind), plus plenty of rotting corpses. Didn't think so, heh. All I can say about Ravenholm is that it's fun to slice and dice by using the grav gun on the buzzsaw blades, and zombies make great flambe. Posted by Hello

Yup, you can grab and hurl things, and catch objects in mid-air with your grav gun. Posted by Hello
