Cheap PS3 Games

I LOVE the PS3. Honestly, I think it's the best gaming console out there. The only downside is that PS3 games don't come cheap. You can find cheap PS3 games on your local retailers but they're not really that good. However, if you're an avid gamer and you want to buy the latest PS3 games at a discount, here's a tip: Coupons. Never underestimate the power of coupons. I got some pretty good deals shopping online with the use of coupons. Anyways, the cheapest place you can find PS3 games are bestbuy and gamestop. sells some PS3 games cheaper than Bestbuy. Their Call of Duty IV retails for $49.99 compared to BestBuy's $59.99 price. Also, with gamestop, you can even save $5 more since they have an online coupon which let's you slash $5 off an PS3 games worth $49.99 or more as per couponchief. CouponChief has pretty reliable coupons and over the years, I've managed to save a few bucks, thanks to coupon websites like CouponChief. They have other retailer coupons too, not just gamestop. If you happen to want to buy other stuff from bestbuy, CouponChief also has some Bestbuy coupons.

So I guess's a good place to shop for cheap PS3 games. Of course, there's always eBay. If anybody of you knows cheaper places to buy PS3 games, please let me know via comment. Thanks.

Recreating a SPA atmosphere in your bathroom

I've been missing my Tiffany Kim Institute SPA sessions since due to the recession, I have to cut back on some pampering. However, I did find these really cool gadgets that would make your bathroom SPA-like so you don't have to go to the Downtown Chicago Spa in order to get your much needed rest and relaxation.

SPA Lights

Candles are so five minutes ago. Why not decorate your bathtub with these SPA lights. These lights are sold in pairs and powered by AA batteries. They're compeletely waterproof so you can stuck them using the rubber suckers on your bathtub. They come in blue, white, and pink colors and provides a soft yellow glow to your bathroom.

Rose Bath Lights

If you don't feel any love for the circular design of the SPA lights, then why not the Rose Bath lights? Just like the SPA lights, the Rose Bath lights are design for your tub, however, they're mainly for floating around your tub and not for underneath it so you might want to combine the two for a more relaxing ambience.

Of course, the SPA lights and Rose Bath lights don't have limited use to your bathtubs. You can always use them on your pools or ponds. The SPA lights sells for £6.95 and you'll get two while the Rose bath lights sell for £9.95 for a pack of three. Both gadgets can be bought from

Vodafone UK offers Blackberry 8520 Curve

In a country where 2G phones are slowly being phased out, it's a surprise that the Blackberry 8520 Curve still managed to find its way on Vodafone UK.

Anyways, the Blackberry 8520 Curve is now available on Vodafone UK and it's probably one of Blackberry's cheapest models. The Blackberry Curve 8520 offers an optical D-pad, WiFi, dedicated musicy keys, onboard 3.5mm headset jack, and 3.2 megapixel cameras.

Hopefully, Vodafone would launch the Blackberry Storm 2 pretty soon.

Creating Your Own Guild Website

With the growth of MMORPG, comes the growth of different clans/guilds. And when you create a guild, you would need a website. Now because of the popularity of online gaming, niche web hosting services like guild hosting has cropped up. The only difference guild hosting services have over ordinary web hosting services is that the former has specialized software and scripts so that you can build your guild website out of the box. However, if you think that the services offered to you by the guild hosting services are not enough, you can always create your own guild website from scratch.

Now the first thing you need to do is choose your web host provider. Web hosting Geeks has a lot of list you can choose from ranging from quality providers to those that offer the cheapest web host services.

Now a lot of novice builderes would probably choose godaddy as it is the most popular domain name reseller but I really won't recommend their site builder. Most would probably recommend Yahoo web hosting as it is reliable.

If you need more help building your guild website, you can visit as they offer a lot of resources. With your own guild website, you're only limited by your imagination.

Samsung i8000 Omnia II gets pictured and reviewed

So, the much anticipated follow up of the very successful handset from Samsung, the Samsung Omnia II gets some pictures and reviews.

The owner of cellphone-reviews has always been a fan of the Samsung Omnia but it seems that she's not a fan of the update. According to the reviewer, the Samsung Omnia II suffers from the occassional lags although battery life of the mobile phone seems great at 2-3 days.

I would love to own either the Samsung Omnia II or the Samsung i8910 HD but both mobile phones are still not available here. I guess I have to wait a while.
