Good morning Korea

The Korea Times newspaper kindly published this English article “A techno day in Seoul”
Another day full of technological adventures in Seoul!

Razer: The Hax Life is a documentary about Korean pro gamers. The videos are with English subtitles. As you will see it is obviously in favor of WeMade … Either way, Enjoy!

Nintendo DSi XL

It hasn’t got much to do with Korea Games, but after all we’re all gamers crossing international boarders through network gaming.

Here it is, my new Nintendo DSi XL. You may wonder why I got one of these; and you’re not alone – I’m surprised, too. Especially since Nintendo officially presented their new 3D supporting handheld this week.

Either way, the question is “to be a gamer or not to be a gamer”… And I couldn’t resist playing on a 93% larger screen than on the DS Lite, having two cameras and a bunch of customization features. So far it was successful in keeping me entertained during my last flight. And since the DSi XL is not released in Korea yet, I feel like the adventurer Christopher Columbus.

After a week of playing First Person Shooters on the PC and Xbox 360 and visiting the hardcore FPS event yesterday, I completed Elite Beat Agents to maintain a healthy diet :) Here are some pictures:

This weekend I visited the eSports pro-gamer tournament for the FPS Special Force by Dragonfly. The competing teams were SK and SKT. It has been a while since I was invited to the eSports stadium at the iPark shopping center in Seoul – it was fun.

In my opinion the most impressive part was the main screen displaying the observer view. Even more than that, the actual technology behind the observer screen. I was allowed a look backstage and saw the video technology network  lead by a team including  a human observer with ultra fast sensory/motor skills :) and a referee.

While visiting the backstage I wasn’t allowed to take any pictures of the technology as it was confidential. It was impressing how the observer caught the best moments of the game in real-time – to be displayed on the stadium’s main screen for the enjoyment of the audience.

Here are a few pictures I took from the main stage. Thanks again to Dragonfly for the nice tour.
