Sony PlayStation4: Innovation of Cloud Gaming

0
When I was 5-y.o., it was the Nintendo console that was dominating the gaming market. With its Super Mario adventures and racing games, every free time was gaming time with friends. But when the PlayStation emerged in the gaming market, packed with awesome RTS, fighting and RPG games, it became a gaming sensation. Also, with its idea of a memory card to save key points in a certain game made solitary gaming more worth while and ditching classes for the sake of racing to end a game sooner than your friend a need.
Nobody should think low of the games in the first PlayStation because this is the console that started most awesome games that you can see in the PS2 and PS3, even in the PSP. Games like Final Fantasy, Marvel vs. CapcomDigimonResident Evil, etc., all originated from the PS1.
Ideas of online gaming for the PlayStation emerged when PC online games became a big hit and was ultimately the competition of most gaming consoles. That is why, Sony came up with ideas to fight the battle with its online multiplayer capability that is most evident in the PS3 console. But they wanted to expand more the reach of online gaming without the need for a bulky PC.
The soon to be released, fourth generation of PlayStation focuses more on live-streaming and peer-to-peer gaming. A player will no longer have to play side-by-side with a friend to finish a quest, they both can connect to a single quest but on separate consoles. So they don’t have to do that 2-player screen distribution while doing quests which was very evident in the PS1 and PS2.
Take note, because it is going to be a massive online gaming experience, you must consider having a decent internet connection at home or within the area. If not present, then you will not be able to maximize your gaming experience and the consoles capabilities. Most games will be loaded in the internet and also be played using portable devices like the PS Vita.
“By combining PlayStation 4, PlayStation Network, and social platforms our vision is to create the first social network with meaning dedicated to games,” Perry said during the event. – Agence-France Presse

National Bookstore Pulls-out China Made Globes

0

The tension between China and the Philippines is still on fire. Now, the Philippines made another move when National Bookstore withdrew all the Chinese-made educational globes from all of its branches.

 The educational globes, made in China, contained the “nine-dash line” virtually recognizing its claims  of all the South China Sea, even some areas close to its neighbors.

What the pure-Filipino owned bookstore did was a move of patriotism. If the Philippines would just let itself be bullied and hide behind its so-called allies and friends then the country has little strength and confidence to stand on its own, to be heard and be respected.

It is a fact, though, that China has had helped the Philippines in sustaining its economy an enriching its culture. But as a co-Asian brother, wouldn’t it be more beneficial for both sides to work together in developing the whole of Asia. Thus, no longer will the West belittle an Asian citizen.

If this dream is just a dream, then let’s boycott all MADE IN CHINA junk!!!!!!!!!!!

Baguio City: A Cool Adventure!

0

Introduction

Baguio City is one of the best tourist destinations in the Philippines. If you love the warm climate and beach ambiance in Boracay then you will surely love the cool breeze and a touch of nature feeling in the Summer Capital of the Philippines.
Brief History
Baguio City was not a known destination until the American colonial period. The Americans were the ones who declared Baguio as the Summer Capital of the Philippines on July 1, 1903. They were also the ones who contributed to the architectural designs and landscapes that you can see today when you visit the place. You will know eventually when you reach spots like Burnham Park and Wright Park, both named after recognized icons in Baguio History.
The Chaotic Travel
Baguio City has its own airport, the Loakan Airport, but it does not cater domestic flights like any other domestic airports of other regions because of its limited runway length. Therefore, it is more of an adventure to base your starting point in Manila then just take a bus-ride to Baguio City. It would typically take about 5-8hours worth of travel time depending on weather conditions and traffic.
Buses bound for Baguio:

I went to Baguio with my buddies, we traveled somewhere around 10-PM so that we can just sleep the long travel time and then reach the beautiful city early morning, somewhere 6-AM. We rode the JoyBus of Genesis Transport, which was truly a comfortable experience, and I really recommend this one instead of the Victory Liner. Although, first-come-first-serve basis, you need to call them for reservations. For a fare of 650PHP, it already came with comfortable seats, free snacks, free WIFI, a comfort room, and a blanket (surrendered after the trip).
This trip was not specifically as planned yet having no specific plans is a lot more exciting, LOL. We arrived somewhere around 5-AM, with no hotels or inns reserved. We walked the inner city, shivering, looking for vacant rooms but to no avail. We were tired and sleepy yet the cool breeze kept us awake until we were able to find a transient home to rest until the sun rises. It was not a good move not to have a reserved accommodation, we learned and I found out that there are many posted affordable transient homes for rent in the internet especially at AyosDito.ph.
A Wonderful Sight and Feeling
It is true that Baguio City was not what it look liked 10-years ago but its tourist destinations are still intact and still there are plenty of trees to look at. Upon refreshing up for the morning, we rented a taxi for our endeavors (for noobs), and it cost as much as 2,500PHP for a whole day of travel needs. We went to places like:
Philippine Military Academy
Camp John Hay

Lourdes Grotto

Strawberry Farm

Mines View Park

We were no longer able to go to other tourist spots because we only gave ourselves a whole day’s worth of adventure. I know that you would need more time than just that. Some say that a whole week is still not enough. Anyways, I’ll come back soon to fully experience the beauty of Baguio City.

Here is a website that contains more information if you want to visit the Summer Capital: Go Baguio!
