League of Legends: Cassiopeia, a New Champion

It just in, a new champion from League of Legends, is right to you, Cassiopeia.

While her sister Katarina has always been the most celebrated member of the household, the Du Couteau family has a long history of service to Noxus. It has often been said that no soldier has ever been as fortunate as General Du Couteau to have been graced with daughters. His youngest, Cassiopeia - despite lacking her sister's killer instincts - was equally renowned in at court for her stately character and elegance. Cunning as she was beautiful, the temptress could never be found far from the arm of any foreign dignitary, her wiles prying secrets from the lips of even the most wary attaché. With the Noxian barbarian pacification campaign having ground to a standstill, Cassiopeia had set her sights on a diplomat from a tribe of the Freljord region. Thinking him an easy mark, the scheming seductress set about beguiling him. He refused to confide in her, however, until she swore an oath of secrecy upon his sword - a strange weapon with a serpentine curve to the blade.

Kratos versus Sub Zero, Who is gonna win?

What would happen if Kratos, the demigod from Greek, devastating Liu Kang cs?

According to report from Playstation magazine, Kratos, protagonist from the God of War series, will be available as a playable character in the upcoming Mortal Kombat game.

Kratos is here for you to choose as a fighter in the regular game, and according to reports from developer, Kratos would also have its own fatality.

Alright, we know he is the star of God of War, popularized by Sony. So it only make sense if its appearance only happen in Mortal Kombat game PS3 version. Which leave us wondering, is there any agreement between the developer of the game with Xbox 360 to bring the popular game character from those system? Errr ... Master Chef maybe?

Say goodbye to copying in Japan

Japanese current law is kinda unique. It is illegal to upload or sell pirated games and movies. But it is legal if you copy it for personal use. Well, knowing that their rule against piracy are still weak. So, Japanese intend to change the rule that can accommodate both premise which actually contradicted.

According to the Asahi Newspaper, Japan's Agency for Cultural Affairs is preparing new legislation that would revise the copyright law today. With this rule, the government able to ban the creation and distribution of software copying program. The revision, however, does not mention about the penalties for acts such as copying.

This new revision does not stop at DVD copying
software, but also refers to devices like the R4 in that the law could be expanded to ban the production of the devices that can run pirated games on consoles.

Metal Black Alternative preview

Metal Black: Alternative (MBA) is an action shooter RPG. This year, NCsoft released a brand new promotional trailer for this game at G-Star 2010. Apart from providing action role playing fun, MBA adopts Shoot & Bomb actions instead of Hack & Slash gameplay and offers a unique APU system.

MBA is set on the futuristic sci-fi earth where players fight against each other for resources and energy. At the beginning of the game, players can choose to be a striker, an inspector or a machinist, and then communicate with other players or NPCs after entering the game hall Outpost Base. Moreover, they are able to enhance weapons, change equipment and team up to start doing quests given by NPCs at the Base.

MBA is a fast-paced game, in which a fight can be finished in 15-20 min. MBA takes players 1-2 hours to enjoy the game every day. The game mode can be simply classified into PVP and PVE. In the PVE mode, it is best for players to form a team with 3-4 members, while the PVP mode offers 8-player combats and RVR battles for guilds. The ultimate goal of both PVP and PVE is to grab more resources necessary for human survival.

MBA has created a more energetic and offensive Armed Personal Unit (APU). They considered various vehicles like motorbikes and aircrafts to present the ultimate personal unit at first, but finally decided to use robot mounts which could improve movement speed as well as attack power. APU is an extremely powerful ultimate weapon bearing deadly attack like bombs. APU will be customized, so that players can make their unique APU.

MBA business model is not clear yet, but some items are needed to resurrect characters, which gives players some space for imagination.
