All About aimmy79
Ok....I decided to spend a fortune on my new pc: dual core 2.4 GHz, 8600 GTS, 1 GB RAM. Yeah, I know, it's not oh-so frigging-cool. But I can play Crysis with decent fps on mid setting. And it confirms my old belief that pc is still the best platform. Forget about Xbox 360. And After years of keyboard and mouse, I just can't picture myself playing Call of Duty 4 with that stupid joystick. I played Assassin's Creed and Mass Effect on my friend's Xbox 360 and found that I just couldn't familiarize with its controller. Just like what Bill Gates said last year: "Mouse is the best input device in the history of mankind." Amen to that.
Another reason. Take a look at Capcom. They just threw "Playstation exclusivity" policy out of the window. Their games will be available on PS3, Xbox 360, and.....pc! How about Crysis on any console? Not even a rumour. And there's no secret that Assassin's Creed, Mass Effect, GTA 4, and some other AAA console games are coming to pc. Oh and now I can play PS2 games on my pc too! Oh my fellow pc gamers, rise. Raise your hands and shout your victory. Let us march to the edge of the world. And let it be heard that pc is the conquerer of the gaming world!!! Ok....that's it for this post. Now it's time for me to go play Final Fantasy XII on that frigging PS2.
why am i writing this journal? no one is going to read it anyway.....
I just bought the Sims 2! Yeah! There's some incident during my journey to Pantip, the biggest IT shopping center in Thailand. The bus I took, it had some kind of electrical system problem. And consequently, the doors wouldn't open! The driver said we had to climb out through the windows! But thank god that we finally managed to force the door open. Well...a small problem wouldn't make me give up.
Anyway, if there's anyone reading this, I want to tell you that PC games in Thailand are cheaper than hell (that's the only one good thing about thailand, in my opinion). I've heard it's the cheapest in the world. That's because Thailand is a poor country with low cost of living. Back to story......I bought the Sims 2 for less than $20 US! Cool, eh? But it's "Thai Edition" Means everything in the game is written in Thai, and you can't choose to use English instead. Good for marketting, eh? Thai people who have abysmal skills in English can play the game. But, really, I want to kill all those people who worked on the game's translation! They got lots of things wrong. And it makes me confused, cuz some texts, some options, some descriptions...they don't make sense. This is not the first time. This problem also happens to game manuals too. Like when I bought True Crime: Street of LA, I read its manual It told me something about Nick Kang using a flamethrower (written in Thai)....What the heck? Nick Kang could use a flamethrower? Then I got it. They translated it terribly wrong. They translated "firearms" into "flamethrower"!
This translation thingy, I understand.....It's something to do with marketting. And I can't do anything about it. I'm just another gamer. But next time, can't they make a game have 2 languages? Or at least get a better person to work on translation?
