After more than a decade and barely even using it, I finally laid to rest the worst investment of my life. My Sony DCR-IP5 camcorder.
I have to say, Sony’s MicroMV technology was a failure. At that time around the year 2000, I thought it was a hip device much like Apple’s devices are now considering that it was small and its tape was a very tiny version of the betamax.
This input medium did not last long though as the proliferation of USB drives having huge space eventually were incorporated into devices to store huge amount of music and videos so it was not surprising to me that MicroMV will eventually die.
I was actually surprised to find out that Sony stopped manufacturing MicroMV devices last 2006. RIP Sony DCR-IP5. I barely used this camcorder anyway because it was also tedious to convert it to AVI format. I was restricted to using its MovieShaker software which was already buggy to begin with.
The fact that it did not even support Adobe Premier all the more made it difficult. Sure, it supported this and a few other ULead supported software but the fad that was MicroMV already died down.
Eventually, I decided to send it to a recycle bin so that it can be discarded in an environmentally safe way.
Farewell DCR-IP5. Even though I did not get to use it that much, it did make me look hip for a few years when I used it;).

When I found out there was a new Ben 10 out for the PSP, I was ecstatic! I love Ben 10 games as much as I love the cartoon show. Ben 10 Ultimate Alien: Cosmic Destruction involves Ben traveling across real-world locations including Tokyo, Paris, the Great Wall of China, the Amazon Rainforest and Rome to find ancient Galvan artifacts to save the Earth from total destruction by a mysterious cosmic storm.
You get to use new aliens from the tv series although the ultimate forms in older aliens cannot be used manually. You can only use them when the game forcefully selects a certain alien to go ultimate. Then you have unlimited mana and health at your disposal to do alien moves against enemies. You only get to use 4 aliens at a time but you can change any one of them at any point in the game although I would advise you to use the recommended aliens as one or two of them are needed to finish a level.
Also, unlike in prior games where you can just run around to recharge your power and use the special moves again, this requires strategy on which alien need to use to get as much hit as possible against your enemies. Enemies with shields are hard to defeat unless you use your special moves so if you run out of them, then you would have to let them kill you and start over.
The game runs in a linear fashion where Ben’s cousin Gwen helps you around by giving you tips on what to do. The game is somewhat easy (so far) and Ben goes to room into room solving puzzles much like how Tomb Raider Anniversary is played although this game is easier.
This is the first time I played with WayBig since the main enemy in the game is an evil WayBig. Also, the game is about Ben so you cannot use either Gwen or Kevin (sucks). Still, I find this game enjoyable and very good. You should try it out if you haven’t.
