Paranormal Windows 7

The migration from XP to 7 is finally over. It took a lot of hours but it's totally worth it. It's really stable like XP but I feel that my hardware is now fully utilized especially that migration is from 32-bit to 64-bit environment.

Also, because of the launch hype last week, I couldn't believe that I got this genuine Ultimate license for such unbelievably low price even considering non-traditional channels like eBay. Last time I checked, lowest price for a full version (not upgrade) is around US$120.00. I went back to my source and they're selling it now for almost 7x the price I paid them. I thank myself for joining the pre-order bandwagon ;-)

Anyway, last night - I watched Paranormal Activity. Reading the reviews, I did myself a favor and viewed it in my iPod Touch to supposedly minimize "scare" value. I was wrong. It still scared the living socks out of me! Wow, if I had watched it in our 23-inch HD LCD using Bose headsets --- tsk, tsk, tsk... I'll be scarred for life hehehehe

I rate this movie - 8/10. Less 2 because its effect is too much ;-)

1:59PM UPDATE: After the migration, our system already received a total of 32 system/security updates.

Windows 7 Ultimate

I bought a genuine license for Windows 7 Ultimate today. Since our PC is still using XP, I can see a busy weekend on this OS upgrade but I think it'll be worth it...

PS3 Down

I got a pre-owned Valkyria Chronicles (VC) last week so after enjoying it for an hour - the game crashed. After a couple of hours of troubleshooting and forum surfing, I concluded that the lens of my PS3 got busted :-(

I brought it to a local shop and we have the same conclusion. They replaced the lens for a fee and gave me a 2-week warranty. So this situation forces me to "burn-in" the replacement for the next 2 weeks.

I'll be switching between MGS4 and VC though the latter will get majority time as I'm loving this strategy game.

PS3 games I'm currently thinking of acquiring - Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and NBA 2k10.
