Dear ST costumers,

I am pleased to inform u that we have been invited the Asia very first Mascot Parade to be held in Singapore! [Very Happy]

Date: 27 Jun 2009 (Sat)
Time: 4.30pm - 6.30pm (Parade March)
Venue: Ngee Ann City, Orchard Road

http://mascotparade.org/yahoo_site_admin/assets/images/Mascot-Parade-H eader.114220130.gif

We expected about 150 costumers will take part in this Mascot Parade. Movie Mania will deploy 70-80 costumers (wow!), I heard SW is also sending 10+ costumers. Our ST will also send in about 10 costumers (+1 as backup) as well.

As this is an major costuming event, we decided all our ST costumers should dressed up in the smart ST:FC uniforms. Hence, we have invited the following regular Trekkies who owned the ST:FC uniforms and/or participated in the last Chingay Parade 2009:

Epic War 3

Epic War 3.
Performance has been improved, compared to the previous version.
Now you get a hero unit too!
I feel: Much more enjoyable to play this time round.  However, it feels boring after a while, recycling the same strategies over and over.

Babarian Onslaught: The Secret of Steel

Babarian Onslaught: The Secret of Steel.
Side scroller slashing game with cute graphics. (Runs slow on my system though)
With only directional arrows and a spacebar for controls, it has pretty decent moves.

Which group is more valuable? Rec ball players or Speed ball players?

Which group is more valuable? Rec ball players or Speed ball players?

In pure business sense, Rec ball players. They come in droves, every 2 hours in large groups. Compare them to the flashy Speed ball players who come in 1 big group but leave in 1 big group.

So no contest. In pure business accounting, it's the Rec ball players that give paintball fields their bread.

From a marketing perspective, I'll vote for Speed ball players for being more valuable. An average Rec ball player will play about 2x in his whole lifetime. He might organise a single game for his friends, before moving on. A Speed ball player in Singapore might spend between $1000-2000 / year honing his skills. On top of that, he brings in more players, both into the Speed ball arena, as well as recreational play.

Who then, is more valuable?

The Sims 3 - was Will Wright involved?
Finally found a piece of info, no citation in the wiki though, so can't say it's verified.

Will Wright, the creator of the original The Sims, was not involved in the production of The Sims 3, Maxis was also not involved in the production of The Sims 3.

Xeno Tactic.
This flash game was written in 2008.  I gave it a second try today and liked it.  Smooth drawing and decent weapons.  The drawback is that it doesn't warn you what kind of aliens is coming in the next wave.

Don't prop up one side by bashing down the other

Don't prop up one side by bashing down the other.

If marshals deserve respect due to their hardwork and dedication, then so do journalists.
Journalists have to spend days to set up interviews. More time had to be spent afterwards to email their subjects for confirmations and follow-up questions. All these source material but they only have a small column to put it in. They have to be forgiven if they make mistakes - like marshals.

What I feel:
Calling someone "noob" for doing his job is disrespectful.
Labeling another athlete "dope" because he is not your choice is uncalled for.
"Re-writing" someone's article to provoke him is rude.

If we were to establish Paintball as a respected sport, then we should *not* be making fun of other sports and other sportsmen. If you need to look at good example, you can refer to King's post. He was fair and he thanked the journalist; something we could all learn from.

Ok, I'm a bit slow.  It's sad that he left.

Designers are sometimes the soul of a company.  Look at the product that Microprose dared to name, "Civilization 3".
