Shadow of the colossus to be out on October 18, 2005

Shadow of the colossus, the boss fight game, is to be out on Oct 18th, 2005. I had an eye on this game right from the E3 Games Demo that happened sometime in the 2nd quarter of this year. As time is progressing into the 4th quarter of the year, it has developed into an excellent environment oriented game. The game comes from the same creators of the industry acclaimed, ICO(Check out an earlier post for a review on ICO). The game is about the journey of a young man into an ancient land that bears giant behemoths called as Colossi, which hold within them, the power to awake a dead human. The young man is out to save his beloved wife/girlfriend(I do not have enough background info about this). The environment and lighting used in the game bears a close resemblance to it's predecessor, ICO. The game involves killing 16 giant colossi to accomplish the task of waking up the girl, and at your disposal are very things, namely Argo the horse, a bow and a sword that can show you the way to reach a colossi and also it's weaknesses. Killing a colossi is pretty simple, unearth the colossi, find it's weakness, and pierce the tattoo with your sword. It might seem easy, but to pierce the tattoes you have to climb the giant, which takes about 15-20 minutes as per the game's developers. All in all it seems to be a wonderful prospect to play the game, and I wish that the wait will be worth it. Will the game have a dramatic climax, is something to wait and watch. Keep your eyes on this product from Sony.

Chacha Chaudhary & Sabu

Yesterday night I was thinking a lot about my childhood days; my favorite cookie, my favorite color, my favorite game, my favorite comic...and i paused there for a while. I get to see and try all of my favorite things, except read my favorite comic.Chacha Chaudhary is the best comic I have ever read in my life. It's been a decade since I have touched any diamond comics or for that matter, any comic book. I know that there are a lot of people out there who love to read this comic and for those who don't..Chacha Chaudhary is a comic series about an old man wearing a red turban, walking with his dog, and a giant from jupiter.With a brain sharper than a needle and faster than a super-computer, he can outwit even the best and most professional of the criminals. For those of you who would be interested in knowing more or ordering go here

Diamond Comics' Chacha Chaudhary

My reading comics might seem childish to some people, but as Nokia once advertised,"There is a child in all of us". You do, what you've gotta do.

Trip to Calgary

Lemoney Snickets.....A series of fortunate all I can say about my upcoming trip to Calgary. I am planning to go to India in November, for my brother's wedding and so I have to get my H-1B visa stamped in my passport, to ensure a safe reentry into the United States. I had planned to go to Nogales, Mexico to get it stamped. But it turned out that the consulate takes freaking 28 business days to process my H-1B. My appointment was scheduled for Oct17th and my ticket to India is already booked for Nov 10th. So, with no choice left I had to look out for another consulate to go. At this time all the consulates are going busy and the only place where I could find an appointment, was in Calgary, Canada. Calgary is located in western canada, right above Washington State, US. Bamm...I had never planned a trip to Canada anytime soon, but now I have to. I got my appointment for Oct28th, Friday which is just about perfect. I am flying down there on Thursday night, Oct 27th. LEt's see how it goes.

Will it be...A series of fortunate events? or a series of unfortunate events? God only knows
