The Mark Of Kri
"Long ago, an evil spell was created that had the power to bridge our world with the one of darkness. Before the spell could be invoked it was stolen and hidden away... until now. So begins your journey as Rau, a heroic warrior, who embarks on an adventure filled with conflict, discovery, and magic. Accompanied by your loyal friend, a large black bird named Kuzo, you must battle the denizens of the dark across many lands to learn the truth about your family’s secrets and to prevent the invoking of the ancient, evil spell. This is the plot behind Sony Computer Entertainment’s new action, adventure game for the PlayStation 2 called The Mark of Kri." Click here to read my review.

Windows XP Service Pack 1
"Microsoft has finally issued its long-awaited Windows XP update.

Mad Catz Beat Pad
"I’m not much of a dancer. Actually, I can slow dance, but that’s usually the story with most guys, isn’t it ladies? Give me anything with a fairly fast beat and I’m all left feet. I’m not really much for taking lessons and embarrassing myself in front of an entire class of people either. So when I heard about the new Mad Catz Beat Pad, I figured hey, why not. I’ll give it a try. Well, I’m still a bad dancer, but I had a heck of a lot of fun playing around with this optional controller for the PlayStation 2 (it also works with the PlayStation and PlayStation 1)."
