Crazy guy seen at Singapore Airshow

February 12, 2010 Leave a comment

The Singapore Airshow 2010 took place last weekend and a weird man was spotted controlling a jet plane with a… remote control?! What’s funny is that he gave a very serious look and acted like he really was controlling the plane throughout the clip.

James Burt, a 24-year-old Australian man who illegally uploaded his purchased copy of New Super Mario Bros. Wii to the internet, is faced with a AUD$1.5 million fine to Nintendo along with additional court charges. Nintendo Australia claims that the game was downloaded approximately 50,000 times after he bought the game from the retail store.

Burt offered words of wisdom to others in the gaming community – “Don’t do what I did.”

Married couple arrested on same day for unrelated crimes

February 11, 2010 Leave a comment

In Osaki, Miyagi prefecture, a married couple were both arrested on Tuesday for crimes that were unrelated. Husband Masaya Takahashi, 46, was arrested on suspicion of stealing a portable game console from a parked truck on Jan 26. His wife Nobuko, 39, was arrested on suspicion of embezzling about 2 million yen from her company’s reserve travel fund while she worked as an accountant at her former firm from September 2005 to April 2006.

I’ve always thought this scenario only happens in dramas.

Nintendo Wii and Microsoft’s Project Natal implements motion control and PS3 is not going to lose out on this. Great marketing by Sony indeed with this 2-in-1 motion controller. I can’t help but think that there’s another use for it. Bet it comes with vibrations.

Defense of the Ancients, also known as DotA, is a popular scenario map developed for Warcraft III. It has been around since 2005 and is constantly being updated by IceFrog. I believe there are many who have played it before, or are still playing it. DotA is so popular that it has inspired game companies to create games with similar game-plays.
