Till this day, I still don’t get who would name a videogame Devil May Cry. Its like he is undecided if he wanna. But the 4 is a clear indication of its popularity – though personally I have never played a single one. I’ve downloaded the demo on Playstation Network the other day. Not ground breaking visuals, but not bad either. The Japanese version will be out on 31st Jan while the US version on the 5th Feb. For me, it’ll just be a rental.
Folks at Nintendo are a bunch of kind souls – by constantly releasing new colors of their portable gaming device to fill our monotonously boring being we call life. Or are they? Maybe its a plot to make us realise our endless pursuit of vanity? Here, the Cobalt Blue DS coming to a gamestore near you. Personally, all I can say to this new color is …. meh. It looks exactly like the Enamel Blue I had 2 years back.
Recently, kotaku.com did a piece called Work and Play: A Peek Inside The Lives Of Gaming’s Greatest Readers. Basically, it features gaming setups from all over the world. I never got to send in mine as I missed the deadline, so here’s my setup in case you’ve ever wondered.

I loved it. Its a living-the-experience kinda of movie. You’re thrown in the middle of all the chaos and commotion – which I think the story telling would not be as engaging otherwise. You have no answers. You have no knowledge of how, when or what’s that thing is. All you know is you gotta get out of Manhattan and survive. Ask questions later. Run now. Many complained that the love story is a drag. Especially during the first 30 mins of the movie – which consists of nothing but footages of a party before the chaos. But the director gotta establish the relationships of its characters, and 20 mins is a little draggy – but once the actions starts, it doesn’t stop. Looking forward to re-watching it on HD.
