Thursday, 17 July 2014 14:49

餐餐老是在外,每天當「老外」,卻總是吃得了無新意?這年頭餐廳滿籮筐,要紅,除了要好吃,更要掌握有梗有點有噱頭,從前流行穿少少的紅磨坊,還是找駐唱歌手來助陣。時代在改變,客人口味變得更重更辣,最好能端出上天下海,飛天遁地,要不就是裝潢特別的主題餐廳,反正,就是要你一進門就嚇破膽。

至今仍在影響世界的中國發明
Wednesday, 16 July 2014 15:16

說到中國影響世界的發明,估計很多人都會不約而同的說到「四大發明」。的確,這個在我們小學教育中,反復出現的「名詞」讓我們根深蒂固的認識了中國古代文明的偉大。但古老而光榮的國度中,卻含有更多你如今已經熟悉但卻「誤以為」來源其他國度的發明。這些在中國廣為人知的技術,卻在數十年或數百年之後才傳到西方。

  • O'Donnell vs. BungieRight here in our own backyard, one of the most iconic video game music composers was kicked to the curb “without cause”. Bellevue-based Bungie and audio director Marty O’Donnell had a long relationship working on the Halo franchise, producing some of the most well known video game soundtracks of all time. They went on to work together on Destiny, but it wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows behind closed doors. After O’Donnell filed a lawsuit against Bungie and chief executive Harold Ryan, a settlement has been made.

  • The Last of Us: RemasteredIn a chat with Eurogamer, Naughty Dog’s community strategist Arne Meyer revealed a whole lot of information important to folks picking up The Last of Us: Remastered which releases on July 29th, 2014. The biggest tidbit now known thanks to advanced copies getting out there in the public is that The Last of Us: Remastered will take up a whopping 50GB on your PlayStation 4’s hard drive. Time to clear off those useless game clips you’ve been storing since launch.

  •  Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn (PS3,PS Vita) Box Art (http://dynastywarriorsgundam.co.uk/reborn/)  Rated E10+ by ESRB. Those familiar with Dynasty Warriors need no introduction to Dynasty Warriors: Gundam, but those unfamiliar with the either of these series have surely been exposed to one or the other at some point in time.

  • Borderlands 2 Vita (PS Vita) Box Art(http://www.gearboxsoftware.com/games/borderlands-2)  Rated M for Mature by ESRB. Borderlands 2 was one of the biggest games of 2012, and arguably of last gen.  It offered an experience that few games could match, with its unique art style, humor, and masterful mix of RPG and Shooter elements, Borderlands 2 is a game that shouldn’t be missed.  Now you can bring Borderlands 2 with you anywhere with the Vita.  The Vita version has most of the DLC and allows gamers to play their ps3 character anywhere.  When the Vita version of Borderlands 2 was announced people got extremely excited, but is this version of Borderlands 2 a viable version to play?

  • Strider (2014)(PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC) Box Art(http://www.capcom-unity.com/strider)  Rated T for Teen by ESRB. Strider, oh strider, how many quarters did I lose on you? How many Saturday afternoon temper tantrums did I throw when I played you on my PS1? Not many, because I was awesome at this game, and now Strider has returned in a “retelling” by Double Helix Games. 

  • Blockstorm(http://www.playblockstorm.com/) Not Rated by ESRB. Every now and then someone comes along, sees the brilliant success that Minecraft is and tries to reinvent it, almost always including guns and competitive online multiplayer. As Seattle Chinese Times’ resident Minecraft fan boy, I plead developers to just stop it. What makes Minecraft fun is its incredibly easy, pick up and play, fully customizable expansive world. Blockstorm is really only in part the last of those things.
