Guide: Shadow of the Colossus

Tuesday, September 30, 2008

1. Go behind the Colossus' right leg and stab it so it falls to its knees. Climb to the top of its head to find its weak point.

2. When the Colossus rears up, shoot the soles of its feet. It will crash down, allowing you to climb up its head and its butt, where its weak points are located.

3. This Colossus holds a giant stone club. Find the stone platform and stand on it, and roll out of the way when the colossus tries to hit you. The impact will break its left arm armor. Let it try to hit you again. When the club is stuck, climb up to it and shimmy up the armor break on its arm to reach its weak points on the top of its head and its belly.

4. Find the tunnels and go inside it. The Colossus will bend over the entrance and try to sniff you out. Go out the back entrance of the tombs and climb over its tail while it's still looking for you in the other entrance. Its weak point is at the top of it's head.

5. Swim to the stone tower nearest the Colossus and shoot arrows at it until it flies off. Find the three floating stone platforms near any tower and stand on one. Shoot more arrows at the Colossus until it drives at you. Before it hits you, jump up to its wing. Remember to move across the Colossus' back only when it's flying calmly. Make your way to the tip of its wings and tail for its three weak points.

6. Run! Run all the way to the opposite end of the room and hide inside the alcove where it can't see you. Once it ducks down to take a peek, run out and climb up its beard. Its weak points are at the top of its head and its lower back.

7. Swim around until you see the Colossus head straight for you. Position yourself so that it passes right under you, then grab onto its tail when it breaks the surface. Make your way from the tail to its head, making sure to grab on when you go underwater. Stay clear of the spikes as they blast electricity when they hit water. Stab clear of the spikes, as they blast electricity when they hit water. Stab the weak points near the spikes, then go for the killing blow on the Colossus' head.

8. Go down to the second floor and shoot some arrows at it to attract the Colossus' attention. Once it starts climbing the walls to look for you, avoid its attacks and shoot two of its glowing feet. It will fall down on its back. Jump down to the area, get on its underside and stab the two weak points you'll find on its chest and its belly. Repeat as many times as it takes to defeat it.

With its focus on cartoon-y but intense turn-based combat, the Worms games have been proven to be a hit on the consoles and the PC. Woms World Party for the N-Gage is an attempt to pull all the antics of the war freak annelids in the palm of your hand. Rendered in charming 2D, Worms World Party isn't out to wuin any awards in the graphics department, but its cutesy Saturday-morning-cartoon style more than makes up for its visual shortcomings. Batttles are played out in wacky, and sometimes surreal, environments such as forests, a filed of cheese and a fruit bowl. Your main objective is to target the enemy worm (same in gunbound) using a various weapons such as a sheep bomb, bazooka and a kung-fu chop for close-range combat. Before you fire your weapon, you have to aim it first by adjusting the firing angle and taking into account the power and wind speed. It takes a bit of trial and error to score a hit on an opposing team. Other N-Gage-only features for Woms include wireless Bluetooth multiplayer or 4-way battles via GPRS in the N-Gage arena. Long loading times aside, Worms World Party is a top turn-based battle game for your handheld.

FullMetal Alchemist 2

Thursday, September 25, 2008

Another cool game, FullMetal Alchemist!


The graphics, while not spectacular, are still pretty good. The familiar characters all bear their trademarks (and even manage to keep the comedy of the anime). Animated cutscenes carry the story flesh out the new characters in the game.


Beat them ups are always fun to play again and again. While there is only one main storyline, you get bonuses depending on how well you defeat the bosses.


The voiceovers are done well, again keeping the feel of the naime. The background music, however, can get repetitive and dull.


The game is really fun to play. Early levels start with quick tutorials so you never lose your way. You are also awarded new skills and transmutations as you progress through the game and increase your level of experience. Players control Ed, while Al fights on his own, unless you give him commands. The interface is really simple so it's easy for anyone to pick up and play.


The game is a very strong anime adapation. Fans of Full Metal Alchemist will find that the game plays out as one extended sotry arc. If you're not yet a fan of the anime, playing the game may just convert you. The characterizations in the game are spot-on and the action can get hot.

Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories

Wednesday, September 24, 2008

Graphics: The graphics are just awesome. Some characters even look more colorful that their previous PS2 counterparts!

Sound: Familiar Disney and Kingdom Hearts themes fill most of the games, great for complementing the overall atmosphere of the game.

Replay: Once you finish the game with Sora, a 2nd story made opens up. This gives the players a more complete picture of the awesome story.

Gameplay: It's set in Castle Oblivion, where moving up floors and levels requires you to clear certain tasks from familiar Disney locales, such as Agrabah, or Neverland, and so on. You play as Sora, still searching for Riku, all the while trying to recover his memories, which are being manipulated by a group simply called The Organization. What makes this game, is that the gameplay is a mix of action and card battles. This is where it gets tricky. Players not used to card battling will have to make quite an adjustment from the previous game. But the card battle isn't overly complicated and it just takes some getting used to. You may need to work out a strategy to dole out heaps of damage across multiple combos, but it's still lots of fun.

Overall: This game is just awesome. Whether or not you like the game depends on how you feel about card battles, but the game still has the charm of the Kingdome Hearts universe. Avids fans, be sure to picks this one up.

Final Fantasy I and II: Dawn of Souls

Tuesday, September 23, 2008

Twelve or so Final Fantasies ago, there were no flashy whizbang light shows for a simple lightening spell, nor dragons that scorched an entire planet at your command. Dialogues was not spoken in full, stories were not told in Shakespearean tongue. When the hero and heroine fell in love in the middle of a raging war, there were no cinematic cutscenes that made you gush in excitement. So why would anyone play suce a game? Well, take a break from the graphical glitz and glam of modern 3D games and find out yourself, because Final Fantasy I and II: Dawn of Souls have been re-released and revamped for the GBA.

Graphics: The graphics have all been redrawn, though the updated visuals of the game don't compare more modern RPG's. Still, considering that its a remake of a classic, they're pretty good. The art is colorful and has a good level of detail, and spell effects are fun to watch. Some gamers may find the sprite animation a little static though.

Sound: There are more sound effects - each weapon type even has its own distinct battle "clang". All the original tunes are still intact, but sound much better. The music is nice and catchy too, which is great because you;ll be hearing that battle theme a lot.

Replay: There is so much to see in Dawn of Souls. Even for games as old as these two, the worlds are huge and detailed. The bonus dungeons in FFI are a treat especially for gamers who've played through the original games. There are also new rare items worth searchimg for and collecting. There is even a built-in bestiary that allows you to view information about monsters you've already defeated. Prepare to spend hours trying to complete this game.

Gameplay: By today's RPG standards, the gameplay is a little old-fahioned. Still, since most RPG's borrow from the original Final Fantasy's formula anyway, it may not be a bad thing. All the standard-fare RPG elements are here, from randome battle to magic spells to weapons and equipment.

Overall: The Final Fantasy name is like a seal of quality for RPG genre. And as this remake shows, even in its early years the series already had polish and quality that plenty of today's 3D games lack. It you're up for a good story, some great battles, and an immersive experience overall, equip that sword, don that magician's robe, and prepare for the Dawn of Souls.

In Fairyland, your favorite fairy tales come alive! Their world exists and surives because of your imagination. But today, kids no longer believe in fairy tales. This lack of faith is breaking up the very foundation of the Fairland world! So the citizens of Fairyland sought an answer from the Wise One. And he said: "Let all those who doubt our existence come and see us for themselves." And with these words, the gates to Fairyland were opened, inviting everyone to beome part of the story

So what's there to do in Fairyland? You won't get bored because there's always something to keep you say busy. Your two main activities will be hunting monsters and completing quests.

As you travel between kingdoms, you will encounter many hostile beasts. The further travel from civilized areas, the tougher these beasts get. Low leveld characters may want to stay on the beaten path. But you must hunt monsters to gain experience and improve your reputation.

When you enter into combat with a monster, the flow of time shifts from real-time to turned-based. You have to decide if you will attack, cast a spell or use an item, all within the given time period, or else your character will defend by default. You and the moster take turns performing your actions until one of you is defeated. And if you happen to have a pet, it will be able to attack with you!

The inhabitants of Fairyland have plenty of quests for adventures and you're rewarded handsomely with money and goods. Most of the tasks are really easy too - just collect items for someone or deliver a certain item to another city or village. Sometimes completing a simple quest will unlock a harder quest, one that involves defeating a powerful monster for example, with a matching greater reward. __kzone

Pirates of the Caribean: The Legend oj Jack Sparrow

Sunday, September 21, 2008

You can play characters other then Cap' n Jack, their moves are all basically the same. Here's what you need to know about the different ways of kciking some serious pirate booty:

Light attacks (x, x+x, x+x+x): Use when you're up against weak or quick enemies. Quick attacks don't do much damage but do keep your opponent back!

Thrust attack (x+x+ square): Two quick hits followed by a slower piercing forward attack, this move is good for enemies that are lined up, as it can hit them all at once. Thrust attacks deliver high damage and also make your opponents fall to the ground.

Heavy attacks ( square, square + square): These attacks are good for slower enemies, as it takes a hile to deliver a single blow. When you do pull it off, though, heavy attacks hit for quite a bit of damage, and often send your opponent flying through the air.
Jumping slash (x+square): This is one quick slash followed by a sweeping jumping attack. This is great for crowd control, as it hits a lot of enemies at once. It doesn't do too much damage, but it's perfect for getting out of a tight situation.

Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban

Saturday, September 20, 2008

The crop of Harry Potter video games will make fans so happy, not even a Dementor could darken their day!

In this game, Harry, Ron, and Hermione team up to complete different objectives around Hogwarts. You'll sole puzzles scattered around the Hogwarts grounds, collect cards found in chocolate frogs, defeat all sorts of magical creatures and Slytheri baddies with your growing knowledge of spells, face Dementors and the dangerous Sirius Black, and of course, accomplish the most difficult task of all - homework.

The game play is a mix of traditional RPG elements and the adventure game exploration and puzzle solving. Players have a wide arsenal of spells, which they can use in numerous ways in and out battle. You'll get a kick out of using Wingardium Leviosa to lift and drop enemies on the ground, or casting Lumos to light the way in dark dungeons. As enemies are defeated in battle, Harry and his friends level up, making them stranger and their spells more effective. _kzone

Some Advice to New Mothers

Friday, September 19, 2008

When a new mother give birth to her baby, she must expect that their will be change in her life. Not only to her, but also to her husband. If the father and mother is not prepared to meet the change in their lives, both can be in for a very difficult time. The father may feel that he's now in the second place in her attention and affection. The mother is tired mentally and physically or relatives may interfere couple's privacy. To minimize the problems, a mother should follow a few guidelines: Here are the guidelines the Family Health Encyclopedia specified:

> The new baby is a shared responsibility. Do not shut your husband out of the experience of parenthood. Let him learn to feed the baby, diaper her, hold her, get acquanted with her. Make your husband feel just as important to the baby as you are, and just as important to you as he was before the baby was born

> Arrange for some kind of assistence in your home, and don't wait until the day you bring the baby home to do it. Plan ahead. You will be physically and emotionally tired after childbirth, no matter how marvelou you may feel when you leave the hospital. During the hospital stay the baby was cared for a trained staff. At home the burden will fall mainly on you, unles you take steps to get help. If you cannot get your mother or another relative to stay with you, engage a housekeeper or some other trained peron.

> If it is all possible, arrange to have a separate area for the baby. It is best for a baby not to be kept in the parent's room. Parent must have privacy. If you do not have a bedroom for the baby, section off some spot where you can put a crib and a dressing table to hold the upplies you will need when you feed, change, bathe, and dress her.

> Don't make the baby the focus of attention 24 hour a day. If she fidgets and fusses at times, try not to get nervous. Don't run to her at every whimper so long as you know she has been fed, is dry, and nothing is really wrong. Relax. The baby will be very sensitive to your emotional responses, particularly when you hold her. Through your physical contact you will develop a kind of communication with your baby which she will sense when you pick her up or feed her.

> As important as it is for you and your husband to avoid overhandling the baby, it is more important that family and friends be made to follow a "hands off" policy except at your discretion. A new baby should not be subjected to excessive stimulation. A baby needs a quiet, organized home, free from the kind of upsetting distraction that comes from being surrounded and fussed over by too many people. You and your husband must decide when you want the baby to have visitors and how those visitors are to behave. You must do this even if it causes hurt feelings among your friends and relatives. When the baby is a little older there will be time enough for friends and relatives to admire and play with her.

Hormones control your emotions?

Monday, September 15, 2008

Hormones does not control your emotions. Pregnant women may disagree, but it's actually more often the other way around. Emotions control your hormones through biochemical changes in the brain. Fear, for instance, is accompanied by the production of one set of brain chemicals that can make you alert and ready to flee, while pleasure triggers the release of other chemicals that soothe and calm. Stress can cause a sustained production of stress hormones, which can then damage the hippocampus, a part of the brain that's crucial to learnign and memory

You can take a vitamin instead of eating?

Saturday, September 13, 2008

Sometimes true, as, for instance, with calcium supplements (with vitamin D). But don't be misled into thinking that it's better to down pills than to down vegetables. Orange juice has more in it that just Vitamin C. And foods don't just have a biochemical importance; they can create a kind of energy force in your body. For example, it may be that it's not one nutrient that helps prevent cancer or reduce heart disease, but rather the combination of several ingredients that does the trick. And that's the kind of nutritional power you find only in the way nature makes our food. In fact, we believe that the study of how food can heal is the next frotier in medical research.

Is cracking your knuckles will cause arthritis?

Thursday, September 11, 2008

Ofcourse, the answer is no. It makes you sound like a bowl of Rice Bubbles and never goes over well in church. While it's painful for us to hear, you're not doing any harm to your joints, bones or muscles when you crack - unless you feel pain as you do it. The noise is caused buy the high-pressure suction of gas being expelled when your joints move apart. If it hurts when your knuckles or kness crack, you may need to see your doctor to assess what kind of joint damage you may have.

You'll know if you're having a heart attack?

Monday, September 8, 2008

Not necessarily. About half of all people who have had heart attacks never felt a symptom - or didn't recognize it. The most commin signs are:

1. Chest discomfort (pressure, fullness or squeezing)
2. Discomfort in upper body (arm, back, neck, jaw or shoulder)
3. Shortness of breath
4. Cold sweat
5. Nausea
6. Sudden extreme fatigue (without lack of sleep)

Symptoms can be unpredictable. For example, talk show Larry King felt intense pain in his right arm, not the usual side for heat pain. Why? The heart's nerve don't fell pain directly. But when something goes wrong, its nerves may become electrically unstable. When they cross the spinal column, they may short-circuit other nerves - so your arm arches, or your chest, or even your jaw. But if the nere fibers don't cross, you may not have any discomfort at all.

You can work out your brain with weights?

Sunday, September 7, 2008

Yeah, its true. According to reader's digest that your sense of balance in one sign of brain strength, and you can use free weights to develop better balance. Try this: Stand on one leg and close your eyes. The longer you can stand without falling, the better (20 seconds is very good if you are 45 or older). Working out with dumbells develops your proprioception, the complex action of body orientation that helps you balance and stimulates neural pathways. Weight machines don't have the same effect because the weights are attached to a foxed suraface, so you don't develop your balancing abilities as you lift them.

Pampering can speed recovery from back pain

Saturday, September 6, 2008

False. If you've ever strained your back, you know that on a scale of 1 to 10, the pain ranks a 692. It can be paralyzing making it difficult to walk, sit, get up, sleep or anything else. All you want to do is lie down, prop your head on some pillows, flick on the television and remain still. You can think of nothing better than having your spouse deliver ice packs, ibuprofen and the latest issue of reader's digest directly to your bed. But your spouse shouldn't play nurse. Why? Attentive mates may be doing the right thing emotionally, but by encouraging you to stay in bed they're doing the wrong thing physically. If you stay in bed more than two or three days, your back muscles weaken and can slow your recuperation. In order to recover from strain, your muscles need to grow stronger and stay active, and the only way they'll do that is by working, even if it's just a little bit. The best method : walking.

Some Advice to Nursing Mothers

Thursday, September 4, 2008

If you don't have enough milk for the first few days, no worries okay? Let me share to you what I've read in the Book.

First thing you do is to let the baby suck your nipples but don't keep her on your breast for about 20-30 min. Begin with 3 min. the first day, 5 minutes the second day, and so on until you work up with 15-20 min. Be sure that you let your baby suck your two breasts to promote milk production in both breasts. In lactating women, soreness or tenderness is common. To avoid this, use one breast longer that other during each nursing period. For example, during your first feeding of the day you nurse your baby on the left breast for a long time and the right for a short time so during your second feeding of the day, let your baby suck your right breast for a long time and left breast for a short time. Few weeks later you should nurse the baby on the first breast for 20 min and the other breast for 10 min.

Can you "spot reduce" a specific problem area?

Wednesday, September 3, 2008

No. Let's say you have a gut or some cellulite on your thighs. Do cruches or squats every day and you'll eventually work off the fat, right? Sorry. That's not how the body works. Think about when you see someone who's lost weight. Where's the first place you noticed it? The face. Since we don't see too many people doing face crunches in the gym. It just goes to show that your body dictates where fat is burned. If you want to build musclle in a particular area, you can make it look younger and firmer. But the only way to target a trouble spot is through an overall programme of aerobic exercise, resistance work and a kilojoule-controlled diet. You have to lose it under the chin to lose it from your belly.

Is coffee good for your brain?

Tuesday, September 2, 2008

Yip it is! Enough studies have been done that we can say that drinking about half a litre of coffee a day could significantly decrease your risk of Parkinson's or Alzheimer's disease. No one is quite sure why, but the effect of caffeine seems substantial, whether it's in coffee, tea or softdrinks. Warning: For some people, too much caffeine may cause health problems. (Reader's Digest 2006)

For diarrhea, the best cure is waiting it out?

Monday, September 1, 2008

This is so funny. Ofcourse the best solution isn't setting up camp on the toilet and waiting for the deluge to run its course. It's chicken soup with rice. That combination of rice and broth seems to break down certain sugars that, along with sodium, suck water back into your systrem, offsetting the dehydration caused by diarrhea.
