Spiderman 2 PS2 game reviewed!

The PS2 and the XboxVersion of Spiderman 2 was a blast. It finally gave tired superhero games a fresh shotin the arm with its free roaming gameplay. Unfortunately the PSP version of Spiderman 2 doesnt let you to explore Manhattan as freely. Instead, the game is more likely the first Spiderman game on the PS2 where you are given specific missons that you have to complete. Going anywhere elese means an instant failure.

sdqMost of the enemies are set indoors with the focus on fighting several enemies at once. Controlling Spidey feels a bit iffy since you use d-pad to move and adjust the camera at the same time. Spidey still has his arsenal moves like web swinging, charged jumps, dives and web zips, and you can earn points to upgrade some of your moves.

For his part, Spiderman moves as well as his console counterpar. Its just weird as he moves accross buildings, his webbing seems to cling on to thin air. My main complaint thought, is how easy and short everything is. It will take you less than three hours to finish the entire game.

The Tiniest Camera Sensor ever

Ever wonder what the inside of your stomach or the chambers of your heart look like? Find it out with the help of the world’s smallest camera sensor.

Developed by leading camjjjeraphone chipmaker Omnivision OV6920 CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) measures a mere 2.1 x2.3mm and could easily fit in a standard sizd pill or a large syringe.

If infected or swallowed, this sly CMOS  could take photos of a person’s internal organs and change the way medical professional look at the human body.

As the world’s firts 1/18″ sensor, the OV6920 opens up a ton of possilbilities for digital imaging. Pencil’s with bulit in cameras, anyone?

Eldest

Have you ever read a book that talks about Dragons? Just like Lord of the Rings. But this time i would like to share you this book written by Christopher Paolini, entitled “ELDEST”. I guess you are familiar with the movie “ERAGON” right?

Eldest is the second book in the Inheritance trilogy. It will take you into the world filled with dragons, elves, and sorcerers~ one you can be a hero, no matter how young you are. In this epic tale, Eragon is a young boy from the distant land of Alageasia.

rrrAlong with his dragon, Saphira, he is people’s last hope against eveil empire Galbatorix, but he must frist develop his knowledge of magic and improve his battle skills under the watchful eyes of wise, experienced Oromis. read this book when you have lots of spare time, because like “The Lord of the Rings” its got a long story, a big cast of characters and its very own language( for which there’s even a pronuncuiation guide!)

The Worst Witch

Ever since i was a kid, my mom keeps on telling me some short stories before going to bed. I think that’s one of the reason why i am pretty much addicted in reading some short story books. Just like “THE WORST WITCH” authored by Jill Murphy.

eeeThe story revolves around a girl named Mildred Hubble. Mildred Hubble has never had an easy time fitting in. Her spells usually turn out completely wrong (Just imagine how Ron Weasley of Harry Potter film cast his spells), her potions are always a disaster, and even her kitten cannot balance on her broomstick!

She’s only in her first year at Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches (Is there really such thing as “schools fro witches?”), and already she’s been to headmistress’ office more times than you can count. But it is not because she doesnt try. Infact, sometimes she tries so hard, things don’t quite go according to plan. Like time that she and her best friend Maud,  had to make a laughing potion but ended up becoming invisible instead! And now her class is involved in the school’s big holloween celebration. Will she be able to join everyone that she won’t mess up, or are they going to call her the Worst Witch forever?
