Rare Exports

date_range 14/12/2009 19:48

I’ve recently watched a short film titled Rare Exports. It goes along the story of how Father Christmas is hunted and then trained and exported over 150 countries all over the world. It is quite an amazing little film actually. Part 1 Part 2 Due to its success, a full feature film will be released in 2010, here’s an exciting looking trailer for it!

PCSX2 – CPU emulates better than Graphics Card

date_range 12/12/2009 00:17

It’s quite a strange moment when you realize the CPU emulates better in DirectX11 Software mode than in DirectX10 hardware mode with the graphics card. It seems unlikely to happen, but maybe it’s only occurring in PS2 games. You’d have to use the program to understand what I’m talking about but ah well, what else is there to post? The game in question was Gran Turismo 4, since I can’t exactly play PS2 games on my PS3. I might soon though, with a bit of luck.

Other than the rebranded GT210 that was released as a GT310, finally some actual details have showed up. Hmm 3 billion transistors.

Gran Turismo 5 Demo!

date_range 05/12/2009 18:50

I’m trying to post roughly once a day now, but I figured that would get boring fast and there wouldn’t be any point in reading this blog. I’ll keep it to a minimum of once a week or so, but a few times a week can’t hurt. Anyway, I’m quite a big fan of the Gran Turismo franchise, and it’s not much fun waiting for Gran Turismo 5 when you hear it ain’t coming out until March 2010. However, apparentely the demo is soon to be released, on the 17th. It’s something I definitely wanna check out. gtplanet.com is a...

More jailbreaking..

</a> I’ve made my lockscreen a little more exciting, I still don’t know if it’s ideal but I might leave it like this for a while, it looks more professional.<a

Classics!

Yeah, I decided to jailbreak my iPhone 3GS. The first thing I installed on it was a PS1 emulator, titled psx4iphone. The next thing I did was put one of my favourite games on it from the PS1, Gran Turismo 2 (I never played the first one, eek!) It runs at roughly 10fps unfortunately, but it’s really fun nonetheless. I also ran Crash Bandicoot 3, though I have not taken any pictures of it. I also purchased Simcity 3000, which very accurately portrays the old PC version released a few years ago. It’s really fun to play!

Holidays..

Yay, 8 or 9 weeks away from school. Now to find something to do during that time :/. There’s nothing interesting going on so far, although the ATI 5890 just came out, which is an outstanding 31cm long, and has a nasty $999 price tag.

26 days and Modern Warfare 2

date_range 18/11/2009 16:03

No real reason why I chose this particular day, but in roughly 26 days some very exciting stuff happens for me. It’s a bit hard to say what, considering it hasn’t happened yet, other than my friend’s birthday who is coincidentally turning 17 on the same day. I’ll even post a bunch of pictures of myself if all goes well, should be fun! In other news, I also got my hands on the recently released Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. I’ve never really played much of the original ones, I did like the first 2 and 3 that I...

Screenshots!

Haven’t updated again in a while, so I might just post a little bit more simplified things instead of anything even remotely interesting. First up, some screenshots I took from my iPhone, of the interface itself instead of using the camera. The main interface with Optus’s wonderful coverage of 0%. Popeye! GTI Racing.

iPhone!

Yay! I bought an iPhone 3GS 32GB! It’s amazingly fast. I’d post more, but it’s far too exciting just using it. The downside is for some reason I happened to have one of the less wonderful Windows set-ups at the time of installing iTunes so I had the most wonderful 90 minutes getting iTunes installed without permission errors and registry problems.
