I am sure a lot of you have been waiting for this day to come, when Sony finally announced the next generation Playstation Portable, considering that their yet to be released Xperia Play device (or Playstation Phone) was already making waves in both the mobile phone and gaming industry, sporting Android under the hood and promising you mobile gaming goodness the Sony way.
Now, here we have the much anticipated upgrade to the Playstation Portable line. The Playstation Portable 2 (codenamed NGP). And honestly, I am quite excited with what I see here and in the next series of press shots that I’ll be including.
More after the jump. Continue Reading

I only caught wind of this device because I have started frequenting the Razer website ever since I acquired my Orochi mouse. Although I’ve visited the site several times prior to getting the mouse, I never really took notice of this particular gadget on the website although it does say that this was part of the CES 2011 so I am assuming that it was a recent addition to the website.
The device I am talking about is the Razer Switchblade. It is basically a portable device allowing you to play your favorite PC games on the go. What makes things interesting and amazing about this device is the keyboard. The keyboard, Razer says, adapts to any game you run on the Switchblade, whether it be a MMO (Massive Multiplayer Online), RTS (Real-Time Strategy), FPS (First Person Shooter) or Casual game.

The mouse I’ve been wanting to get for some time now is finally here.
I have been in need of a replacement wireless mouse for quite some time now. The old Logitech wireless mouse was already double-clicking whenever I just do a single click which can be annoying whenever I’m working on some spreadsheets or editing some images. So an upgrade/replacement was due. Even before acquiring a new laptop, the Orochi has been in my sights because it’s a nice wireless mouse with gaming pedigree. I know that for hardcore gamers, this mouse is still a bit painful to the hands due to its small size but I’m fine with it since the size isn’t far from the mouse I’ve been using previously.
The neat thing about the Orochi is the fact that you can program macros with it which you can use for gaming. Another neat feature is that it connects to your laptop via bluetooth so that means it frees up the USB port I used to occupy with the older mouse’s receiver which also stuck out of the side of my laptop like a USB flash drive. Along with with that, the mouse can also operate in wired mode. There is a USB cable that comes with the mouse that you can use especially when your batteries run out of juice. This also allows you to get 4000dpi of sensitivity for your gaming needs. I’m good with 2000dpi though.
The top cover of the Orochi is a single piece that comes off when you need to replace the batteries. The locking feature in the old mouse was a hook mechanism which was already broken so I held the lid in place with a little bit of blu tack. The Orochi’s lid is held in place by a magnet so the entire cover comes off, buttons and all to reveal a two-slot AA battery compartment. This one needs more juice than my previous mouse but that’s what the Eneloops I stocked up on and the fact that this mouse can also go cable-mode, are for.
I have to admit though that my hand is still getting used to the Orochi. The sensitivity’s a bit new to me and also, the shape is foreign. But the overall experience is definitely good. The feel of the rubberized lid is good to the hands. The teflon pieces underneath makes the mouse slide smoothly on almost any surface.
I am definitely loving this mouse. Will be testing it on some games soon.
Maybe Raynor will need my help yet again.

After months of waiting, I finally have my GFFN FA Unicorn Gundam on my office desk and boy does it look badass. Definitely worth the moolah that I paid to acquire it. For Gundam fans in general and Gundam Unicorn fans, this is definitely a must-have.
For those wondering why the internals are green, basically, in the manga, scientists working on the NT-D appear to have discovered a better way of using the system while at the same time reducing the stress on the pilot when the unit goes into Destroy Mode. This way, Unicorn can stay in Destroy mode longer compared to the previous red glow version which could only stay in that form for five minutes or else the pilot will go insane due to the mental stress. This green glow version also allows the unit to equip more armaments compared to the red glow version which only went as far as having twin gatling guns. Continue Reading

I’ve talked about Hyakka Ryouran figures in the recent past and now there’s another one coming out and I think even if this one’s a mail order exclusive, it’s actually a worthwhile exclusive to get. As gorgeous as Yagyu Jubei is, this baby’s got a juicier rack and more beautiful legs. The character I’m talking about is the silent companion of Yukimura Sanada: Goto Matabei. She’s all meek but still all woman.
This woman has no idea how much skin she’s showing. But the sculpt for this figurine is just so gorgeous that it’s difficult to let this one pass. The figurine is a mail order exclusive so if you want to own this figurine, you would need to contact your third party buyers to get this gorgeous piece for you.
