The site was down for a short period yesterday, apologies for that. The admin was adding some functionality on the server side.
I will be posting pictures from the Tokyo Game Show soon, it's just been extremely busy. The show is amazing and also a bit overwhelming for a first timer. I have new found respect for the people who cover events like this-it's no easy task.
I played a few really good games at the show. Naruto (Wii), Call of Duty 4 (PS3) and Badminton (Wii). I will go into more detail about the games in my next post. For great videos and trailers of the show check out Gamespot and Gametrailers.
Metal Gear Solid 4 looks amazing but I couldn't play it or Gran Tourismo 5 because the queue was so long that you had to wait 45 minutes before you had a turn. Ace Combat 6 also looks great but it also had a super long queue which had to be negotiated.
As a first timer to the show I had no idea how much busier it would get on the second day. All of the popular titles had long queues on day two.
One last point before I sign off. I intend updating the site three times a week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I have a day job and other commitments so I may not be able to stick rigidly to this schedule but I will try to be on time.

Well it took a total of 24 hours from Cape Town International to my hotel room in Tokyo. 11 Hours from Cape Town to Singapore, a 5 hour stop-over in Singapore, 6 hours from Singapore to Tokyo and a 1 hour train ride to the hotel. A flying experience that I can only describe as zombifying. It took 13 hours of sleep to return to some level of normality.

I hope that this is the end of the beginning because this has been a really long road. I have alot of people to thank for helping me get to this point but at the risk of leaving anyone out I am not naming any names. Suffice it to say that I am hugely grateful.
Lancoza is up and running.
The other big news is that I am leaving for Tokyo in a few hours. I will be covering the Tokyo Game Show and will be updating the site regularly with news and pictures. I also intend doing alot of shopping so drop me a line in the comments if you want to suggest any cool places to shop or crazy toys that I should buy.
It's been a crazy week so I'll sign off before I pass out. I'll be landing in Tokyo on Tuesday and will add another update then depending on how badly jet lagged I am.
