Revenge of the Retro Games

In these days of RTS and FPS, I longed and begged for the return of the days where games were more about innovative game plays and fun - more than just pretty graphics.

I am not sure how many of you remember the indie strategy game of the Sega Megadrive year - King's Bounty! This is the pre-Heros game that was unique in its time. Now after years, it is moving a come back this year! King's Bounty: The Legend. Fellow gamers hold on tight, I look forward to your challenge on this game!

Another sequel I am looking forward to is Majesty 2. Majesty is an unique, indie real time sim game with its setting on the fantasy world. Player built the kingdom to fulfill mission objectives but does not directly control it. Rather provide tools and incentives for the sims in the games to complete your goals.

Retro rulez!

MOP asia 2008: IranDiary by Abbas

K & I had the privilege of being in presence of a maestro of photography - Abbas from Magnum Photos (a renowned agency formed by a cooperative of photographers). Abbas is giving a talk on one of his signature projects, the book IranDiary (stunning photos, do check out the book and site). Sharing with us his thoughts and feelings during his cover of the Iran revolution, insights into the world of professional photography and tips on photography. He comes across to me as being a cool, down-to-earth guy with no airs. What one cannot miss from his talk is his passion for photography.

Some quotes from the man himself (I try to quote as close as I could remember it):
  • "A historian of the present", on a photo journalist's responsibility
  • "I see colors in black and white", his take on black and white film photos
  • "Photography is easy, even a baboon can do it"
  • "A photo may appeal to you differently at a different time"
  • "A good pair of shoes and fall in love", his keynote tip on photography
I wish him all the best in current project and a pleasant stay in Singapore.

Abbas, if you are reading this, do feel free to drop me a comment. I will like be in contact and happy to bring you around Singapore :)

The talk is part of the programmes for MOP asia 2008. For full details on the event, go to their site. Will be dropping by The Cathay Gallery for "The Magic of Cinema A Magnum Photos Exhibition" soon.

Congratz Tammy, Marliha and Crystal!

I wonder who is next to go.... (for some reasons, despite what she says.... my bet is on Ms Kimchi...)

Will be posting some photos up on my album.
