Game Day blog #3

Dear diary...

Today, I was playing Minecraft with a bunch of friends. I haven't played Minecraft in a while so I was eager to hop in and muck around. We had a Minecraft Hunger Games tournament, where we were thrown into an arena to duke it out, with hidden chests containing equipment and items dotted around. Fun times were had!

You could imagine the anticipation of coming across another player, hoping they don't have some godly equipment. When night time came about, the other players are the least of your problems. In the first game, I was taken out by a skeleton archer. Upon death, players respawn back at base as a sponsor. They climb the staircase all the way to the top of the arena, and drop loot onto the remaining tributes.
I managed to win the third round, with my sneaking around, and finally being able to shoot down my last opponent.

Unfortunately, the action was so intense I didn't get any screenshots in game. Your imagination will have to suffice.

Too adorable RinRin!

Free! Parody clip

I do enjoy the occasional anime parody film clip, especially those that give me a good chuckle.
Now I'm not sure whether to class this under the "Terrible" tag or flag it as a "Don't go there" link. It did give me a good chuckle... and a facepalm.

Samsung Galaxy Golden: A flip phone for nostalgia

New reports originating from South Korea reveal that Samsung’s recently leaked clamshell smartphone Galaxy Folder will actually be dubbed as Galaxy Golden. Some live images as well as sketches from the phone manual have also been leaked online, giving us the first look at this device.

According to reports, Samsung Galaxy Golden will pack 3.7-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display, and 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor. The phone will also feature LTE support, NFC, Bluetooth and Android 4.2.

The phone is expected to be released around mid-August on KT and SK Telecom in the country with model numbers SHV-E700K and SHV-E700S respectively.

There is still no word on whether the smartphone will ever make it out of South Korea but the chances of that are very less.

I Don't Want to
My advice to all Android owners: Just root it. Why root your device? For many reasons.

For the average user: rooting enables you to be able to back-up your app's save data for your Angry Birds game. Also, rooting also allows you to download ad-blocking apps that help block those pesky ads that always appear in apps.

For the advanced user: why haven't you rooted it already? Well, rooting your phone allows you to install custom ROMs onto your device as well as tweaking the various settings that are hidden from the average user.
