Imminent sleepless nights

Oh No… my brother just told me that my all time favourite computer game, Romance of the Three Kingdoms version XI is out. All these while, the game has only been in Mandarin but RTK XI is now in English.

I just managed to install the game yesterday. The graphics are pretty incredible. But the tutorial suggests that it will take a while before I get familiar with the game.

Liu Bei… Cao Cao… Sun Quan… it’s all coming back to me. I might just be spending endless hours in front of the screen just like when I was in school. Sleepless nights… here I come!

P/S: A very big thank you to Pattirmina for awarding me Uber Amazing Blog award. Wow, it has been a long while since anyone gave me any award. Many thanks!

The game is fun, and I lost some sleep over it. But it gets to be a pain in the ass if you over micromanage :P

And I can't overstate the importance of getting someone with the "Wealth" specialty. Money counts :)

Aiyo, what coincidence. Just watched part 2 of John Woo's "historical" adaptation of one part of this very popular novel - the Battle of Red Cliff, only yesterday nite when i read your post. Have you seen the films yet?

The first part was quite good. But i have to say the second does not live up to expectation. i don't like the ending at all. Haiyah, too much like a modern day standoff. Guess that's the case with most of John Woo's films.

Tony Leung's 'Zhou Yu' is also not forceful enough. Liu Bei seems too soft. Sun Quan does not have enough screen time. Liu Bei's sworn brothers, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei only played minor roles in the film. Only Takeshi's 'ZhuGe Liang' and Zhang Feng Yi's 'Cao Cao' could be considered good. Overall, not a good conclusion to the whole film. Enjoy your game then...

btw, nice pic of Chu-Kok Leong (ZhuGe Liang).

jemima - that goes without saying :P

Klaw - i am STILL learning how to play it. sigh... felt so slow.

joshua wong - yeah, i think the second part was not as good... the first part raise our hope for the second installation. sad to say... failed to deliver. but nonetheless... it's a good watch. it's like china's respond to lord of the rings.
