Film Review: The Dark Knight

Just got back from the movie theater where I watched the first full show on the official opening day of The Dark Knight. Jessica Zafra wrote in her review (the only one I’ve read about the movie) that, “This is possibly the best superhero movie ever made.” Guess what? I cannot agree with her more! Read more of Flori‘s personal take on The Dark Knight on...

Preview: Mortal Kombat vs. DC is a bad idea

When we hear of the phrase Mortal Kombat, only one thing first comes to mind: Fatality. Even Capcom can admit that this concept featured in MK challenged the supremacy of their Street Fighter.

Marvel, EA split up

This news isn’t so new, but I believe it’s worth posting anyway. In 2004, Electronic Arts had a partnership deal with Marvel Comics, which gave rise to the “cross-over” beat-’em-up/fighting game Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects. To me, at least, the game didn’t sell that good, and it has a share of fairly bad reviews. Summer of last year, Marvel and EA announced to create a fighting game...

KOMEREKKU (commission on erection)

I am so pissed off! Really! Who would actually put very personal information (including addresses, birth dates and voter ID numbers) online?! Just one guess, folks. Just one guess! I don’t know if the COMELEC NCR people in-charge of this scheme mean to please stalkers or those ruthless self-serving politicians. No wonder may dayaan! This plain screams, “IDENTITY THEFT!” Hmp! There should have be an account log-in of...
