Game Review - The Godfather II

The Godfather II is a latest video game based on the movie The Godfather Part II. Obviously, the game is slightly different from the movie. In the game, you act as the main character "Dominic", a dude who appointed to become a new Don for Corleone family. Your job is to defend your family, take over all the rackets, and defend the rackets from other familes in New York, Cuba, and Florida.

Have you gotten your copy yet? Oh ya, it's rated "18", not suitable for kids haha.

My crew members and our ride. The new features of this episode are, you can choose your own crews. Every dudes has his individual skills, whether they are Arsonist - the one who setup fire and bomb the building, Engineer - the one who cut down the fence, crack the safe, cut down the electricity, Medic - the one who brought you back from death, and more. You also can order them to defend the rackets when other famillies are attacking and trying to take over your rackets. Depends what favors you wanted from them, choose the crews wisely.

This is the map of Florida. Each of the rackets has 1 owner, you need to go there and fight with the other families, and then take over the racket from the owner.

The funny thing is, most of the owners always hiding on the rooftop haha. Sometimes you just need to search every corner of the building to get him/her.

Ask the engineer to cut down the electricity before starting the war. Or else, the enemy will call their bosses and get reinforcement via the phone lol

Ask the bomber to break the wall using dynamites and pay a surprise visit.

In the game, you can do whatever you want to do. Rob the bank whenever you are lack of cash is just an example. You can kill anyone you want, innocent people, cops, anyone. Other than that, you also have many sub missions in order to complete certain missions. Example, you need to do favor for people to get information of the location of enemy's crews and eliminate them. You also can do favor for cops or bribe them so that they can stay away from you when anything happens.

There are many prostitutes and dancers in the club. Feel free to flirt them whenever you feel bored.

If you feel bored again, feel free to shoot on the street lol.

There are many ways of execution, this is 1 of the execution style - Pistol Execution.

Superkick Execution.

Magnum Execution.

Tommy Gun Execution.

After taking down all the rackets that belonged to a family, that family's campaign will be unlocked. It's time to rush in and kill anyone you see, of course, kill the big big boss. At last, don't leave the house empty, order your crew and take it down.


I knew the gameplay of this Godfather II and GTAIV is quite similar, but since I haven't played GTAIV, I can't state any comments and differences. Another gangster/mafia game is coming real soon - Mafia II.

The dvd case cover hasn't out yet, I assumed this is just the temporary logo?

The picture quality is really impressed me. So far, the trailers and screenshots already out, really looking forward to this game. Hope it is much nicer than Mafia I.

Another 50's gang fight game weeee...

Yeah! Shoot the motherfucker!

Few more months to wait zzzz..can't wait to play it!

P/S: I rate The Godfather II 5 out of 10. Due to the stupid bugs and noob AI, the game also getting low rating from other famous game sites.

Where The Hell Is Linkin Park??

Few months ago, I bought a new CD/DVD "Linkin Park - Road To Revolution". A not so hardcore LP fans of me, how could I missed it? It's acutally a Pro-shot concert live @ Milton Keynes, England back in 2008. Compared to their previous similar released "Linkin Park - Live In Texas" in 2003, this is better in term of the video quality, audio quality, and also the angle movement. Unlike Live In Texas, the audio of this Road To Revolution is more to live wheareas Live In Texas is highly edited and sound like studio-live.

The cover of the CD/DVD.

Open it, you will get the CD, DVD...

Of course, and also the small photo booklet covering the individual and band photos.

Chester Bennington

Brad Delson

Joe Hahn

Some screen capture from the DVD, look at the crowd man..I wished I was there lol..

Another angle from the stage, can't imagine you are one of the "ant"

The crazy screamer - Chester Bennington

Like always, scream his lung out..

Rob Bourdon - The 10000 rpm hand..

The crazy rapper - Mike Shinoda

Brad Delson :"Wanna fight? LAI!"

Dave "Phoenix" Farrell - Back pain and falling down lol

DJ Joe Hahn

His gears..

After they released the last single "Leave Out All The Rest" from the album "Minutes To Midnight" and ended their tour in August 2008, they seemed like disappeared from the news, so where the hell are they? According to Mike Shinoda's blog -, Mike revealed that they had back to studio at Hahn's home and started recording new album. The fourth album was expected in early next year (2010).

Look at Mike, see how concentrate he is haha..

I guess is fun to sit down together and writing/thinking songs in the studio, though I don't know to play any of the musical instruments.

I can't believe myself started listening to their music since the debut album "Hybrid Theory" in 2000. Until now, I still love their music although they changed their style from nu-metal, rap-rock, alternative rock (Hybrid Theory, Meteora) to something else (Minutes to Midnight). According to Chester, the new album will be a concept album, but they didn't really release many specific details about the album. So, what does it mean? Another surprise? Anyway, no matter what style they gonna change, I believe it sure acceptable by LP fans. Don't disappoint me, LP rocks forever =)

My Bad Experience In DoTA Tournaments

Few months ago, UCpro has hosted their 1st tournament - UCgames. A noob like me has never joined a tournament before, and since it was free, I joined it without thinking twice. The members of the team for this tournament is selected randomly by the admins, meaning you can't find your own team members. Unfortunately, the captain of my team was just a lcly kid who claimed himself was a WCG player before, blah blah blah and stuff like that. Not sure it was fate or what, I was chosen as a substitute player, lmao? My 1st tournament in my life but chosen as substitution HAHAHAHA. But on the fighting day, one of my team member was sicked and asked me to play for him :D weeeeeeeee. Finally got chance to play! MANA TAU when the game began, I kena the most annoying error message from Warcraft 3 "Fatal error". So the game forced to remake and guess what? It came out again! So remake another time. In the 3rd time, I kena again before the game even started :D. So I gave up and called the sick guy to play for me haha. That's my 1st game, result? What do you think? A kid captain with lcly attitude, I assume you have the answer. lol

Last month, UCpro hosted 2nd tournament - UCdota. This time, they allowed to find your own team ^^. Without further thinking, I texted all "pui" members and asked their opinion. Due to unforeseen circumstances, 2 of the pui members have unstable working hour, they can't join us. In the end, our pui ex-member dunkillm3 (previously known as k2-vocal) and Bobby's friend - justnoob (Sean) have joined us for the tournament. If not mistaken, our opponent is a bunch of kids cuz most of their IGN (In-game name) are the characters from Doraemon. Their team name is "Ang ang ang", theme song from Doraemon? So the teams line up would be :

[pui]MingKAI, [pui]Bobbyd, DunKillm3, justNoob, -pui-nAoKI, [pui]yinyuan (sub)


Sinyu, Giant, Nobita, Doraem0n, Shizuka

Result? Expected lose, and kena tapau in 35 mins :D. 2 of the members changed their heroes in last min, and our team just like the sand, no teamwork at all. Yes, that's the style and signature of our team, famous of AFK and no teamwork, each of us just like street fighter lol. Well, I was quite upset of our result although it was expected. We just lack or teamwork and experience. Perhaps we could do it better in the coming tournament? The answer is NO!

Finally, all the pui members were able to join the UCpro's 3rd tournament - IMBAlanC 09. This tournament is a bit different from other tournaments. 4 seasons, 6 countries, 64 teams, 448 players, USD $10000 and 1 glory. It's bigger and more attractive than previous tournaments. If you lucky this time, you are able to fight with other counties like Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Brunei, and Vietnam.

Photo taken from

Though the champion is only USD $550, but compare to UCdota which is RM250 + merchandises, this is much much higher. After completed the registration, we were damn excited about it. We trained our heroes, teamwork, items almost every night. We discussed our plan like heroes, items, opponent's common heroes, playstyle, etc, but we missed out 1 thing, analyze their replay. We did expect this would be another lose game, but we did try our best, didn't we?

The opponent was Synx, they lost their game in the semi-final game in UCdota. 5 of them played under the same roof cuz admins detected that they were sharing a same IP. Of course, teamwork was better since they seated together (excuse lol). The game was really terrible and we kena sapu 9 9 in 25 mins haha. No doubt, their teamwork was really decent. The teams line up were:

[pui]MingKAI, [pui]BobbyD, [pui]Aced, [pui]yinyuan, [pui]lasenza, -pui-naoki(sub)


Siryx, Fantastic, VitaminC, PremiumHeart, aLoser

How did I feel about the result? Besides disappointed it's still disappointed, disappointed, and disappointed. It's really strange, though I expected it was a lose game, but I have no idea why disappointed still came for me. Perhaps I did put effort on planing everything with the team, no idea. After the tournament, [pui] has officially disbanded? [pui]Aced, [pui]lasenza, and -pui-naoki have quited DoTA due to frustration and persuited their other hobbies/interests. Will they ever come back to DoTA? No one knew about it, what I knew is left me and [pui]BobbyD haha, like old times.

At last, I wanna thank everyone to make it happen, special credit to [pui]yinyuan cuz he rushed back from meeting just for a lose game lol, appreciated it. Though it was a lose game, at least we officially formed a team and played in tournament before haha. Thanks everyone =)
