Big step in career! Wish me good luck!

So many posts...in one day! I forgot to make a post here on something really important that took and still takes all my time and mind this past week... I've started taking a test for the Game Designer job at Gameloft. You have a picture of "what you as a game designer" in the big gaming industry like PC and consoles. I really want to do this even if I know that it will be a job a lot more time consuming than the one I have now. It's something I've always wanted and dreamed to do and I couldn't take this decision without my close ones. It will be a job which involves more creativity and I'll have the chance to work with some of the best game designer's at Gameloft.
I'd like to give many kisses and thanks to my beautifull and caring girlfriend Iulia for all the support and understanding during this time. I love you baby! Couldn't do it without you! I'm still working on it, it will take about a week from now on or maybe more. No matter how long it takes, the important thing is to get this job. Monday I'll have to show the guys at Gameloft my first chapters from this test. Wish me all good luck! I'll keep you updated!
P.S. Also I'd like to thank one of my best friends at Gameloft for his advices, feedback and support he offered. I'll tell you all who's that guy when everything is finished. Dude if you're reading this, thanks a lot! I owe you big time! Peace! ;)

X360 - The most comprehensive resource for Xbox 360 owners in RO

Yo! I've told you a bit about a project, that me and Vlad started working on regarding the Xbox 360 console, so here it is: X360 Blog. You'll find there all the explanations and answers to questions like: "What's the purpose of X360 Blog?" and many others. Please feel free to check it out! We'll spend some time on that from now on and we think it's worth it. We still have the dream that consoles will be popular in Romania and we're making small steps in establishing a small Xbox 360 community there. Soon for PS2, PS3 (Hell yeah!) and other consoles.
Peace to you all!

King Kong on Xbox 360 is down...! Next please!

Hello again!
Back again with more news. So, what have I done in the last days...hmmm....well I've been playing and finally finished Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Original Game Of The Movie
I've played the Xbox 360 version of the game and because I've mentioned Xbox 360 platform I'd like to announce that me and Vlad we've started a new project dedicated entirely to the Xbox 360 scene.

Yeah! I'm a PSP freek now!

Yup! Just got an awesome present from my friend Vlad (he's a games-gadgets-tech-freek too) ! Yes, it's a PSP! Sony Playstation Portable! Since I got it it's like attached to my flesh, I take it wherever I go, it's so cool since you can enjoy all sort of things like games (multiplayer by Wi-Fi), music, movies and photos. Especially to a game freek like me. :D Anyway the only disadvantage is....yes...the price of games and accessories. A Memory Stick of about 1 GB from another producer, not Sony, is about 100$ and usually a game costs about 50$. Pretty expensive for the usual sallary package in RO. One cool feature of the PSP games is the Game Sharing. Like this you can share your game to as much as 8 PSP's so you can enjoy a real multiplayer deathmatch or race. Unfortunately not many games have this feature...so in most cases you need to own a copy of the game if you want to play against your friends. :( But it doesn't matter, believe me that Sony PSP it's worth it. So, get yourself one too and see ya around playing some Fifa, NBA, Ridge Racers, Fired Up or other titles and sooooooon Def Jam: The Takeover. Yeah bitch! Bling, Bling! ;)
