GAMEHOPPER @ Ozine FEST '09 - DAY 2

Today marked the SECOND DAY of Ozine FEST '09! (Pictures below!)



For today we got much larger LCD TVs sent in by BRICO. We had a 47", 42" and a 37" LCD TV set up at the Gamehopper booth, and made a new setup for managing the crowd of people coming in. For the entire day we had the following games available for free play:

- Street Fighter IV
- Soulcalibur IV
- Super Smash Brothers Brawl


We had all three of the latest consoles (Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii) set up for free play, and all the games were available for at least two players. Unlike yesterday, Gamehopper now had Street Fighter IV for the Playstation 3 for the entire day, so many players who were requesting for Playstation controls for the SFIV were quite happy with it.

Soulcalibur IV, despite being several months old, surprisingly still drew an incredible crowd; at times the game clearly surpassed Street Fighter IV in overall popularity! We were amazed to learn this at the event; it seems clear to me that Pinoys love Namco-Bandai Games :) I can't even begin to imagine how much crazier it's going to get when Tekken 6 gets released for both the PS3 and the Xbox 360 later this year.

Gamehopper will continue to have a booth at the last day of Ozine Fest '09 tomorrow, Sunday, April 5, 2009, at the SM Megamall Megatrade Hall 2. Most likely the games for tomorrow's event will be the same as what was set up today.

For people who want to go I suggest going early; today they actually ran short on tickets and at the rate people are going to the event, I think it's best to secure tickets as early as you can, if you want to see the festivities and everything Ozine has to offer :) Also, I heard that tomorrow is the definitive date for Ozine Fest '09, since it will be the day of the actual cosplay competition! There were literally thousands of people dressed up as their favorite characters in today's event, so tomorrow it's going to be even more crazy with the actual competition between cosplayers taking place officially.

Good luck to everyone!

Gamers based in the Philippines: How to get in Xbox Live

NOTE: This article has recently been updated (as of August 12, 2006). Singapore no longer lets you input '00000' as your zip code. Please see below for alternate zip codes.

So you're a Filipino living in the Philippines with a brand-spanking new Xbox 360. You've heard about all the wonderful stories on Xbox Live. You happen to have a pretty good broadband connection. One day, you try out the Xbox Live sign-up options on your 360, and you find out to your dismay that your country is NOT listed. What do you do?

Now, you can probably enjoy your 360 without live at all, but I have to tell you: YOU ARE MISSING OUT. As Peter Moore said in the recent MS Press Conference: "Having your 360 connected to Xbox Live is as vital as having your computer connected to the Internet".

He is so damned right.

I've been playing on Xbox Live for almost a year now (both on my original Xbox and the Xbox 360). Essentially I found out all of this with a little bit of research, a little…

Possible Solution for PS3 NAT TYPE 3 on Globe Telecom PROLINK Modems!

Long time no post...been busy with work but still gaming on the side when I have the time. One thing I have been trying to fix for practically months now is getting NAT TYPE 3 on my Playstation 3 when connected wirelessly via a Linksys WRT120N Router connected to Globe Telecom's PROLINK Modem/Router.

NAT TYPE 2 is the ideal set up to find games online easily and to connect to more players.

I'll probably update this post some time later today to clarify some things...in a rush because I'm also working...

Here was my setup before:

Linksys WRT120N
- Has DHCP Server On
- Getting an IP address from the Globe modem of 192.168.254.x

Prolink Modem from Globe
- Apparently also a router of some kind
- The public/dynamic(?) IP address from Globe was in this device and not in the WRT120N device, as evidenced by an address that was not 192.168.x.x
- Username and password was in the Prolink device.

After reading a LOT of information online, including this one:

The CD-R King USB Arcade Stick on the Playstation 3 - An Honest (But Not Cynical) Opinion

(*Pictures included below. I also have a picture of the BUTTON CONFIGURATION Screen for Street Fighter IV for the Playstation 3, configured for use with the CDR-King USB Arcade Stick. This will surely be useful for anyone considering to buy the CD-R King USB Arcade Stick. Mapping the buttons on the CD-R King stick can be quite tedious, with the way SFIV is set up for button mapping.)

I spent a (relatively) small amount of money on one of those generic USB Arcade Sticks that they're selling over in CD-R King (the stick cost PHP 550). The thing is, arcade sticks for the Playstation 3 have become extremely rare now that Street Fighter IV is out. Playing on the PS3 controller is workable, but gives me a sore left thumb.

It's one of the hassles of living in an 'unsupported' country that I haven't got any easy access to peripherals for game consoles. Even before SFIV came out, arcade sticks for any console here in the Philippines is extremely rare, and even if they do come…
