At last, I can use the Everybody’s Golf Event category haha… Anyway it doesn’t look much different from the Japanese cover… a different title and two characters added in. Dino to the left and Saphire to the right.

I have to say, the logo doesn’t look as good with Golf shifted to the left and World Tour squished into the right… A logo which seems to incorperate balance in the design it has lost the balance here. The Hot Shots Golf version of the logo always seems to look abit more professional than the Everybody’s Golf version… I wonder who was hired for the photoshop and illustrator work there…

Serious? It’s finally here! Grade Zero Tournaments for Minna no Golf 5 Online will begin on January 27th. Guess I will be able to play one before I go overseas for awhile. 🙂 Guess I am lucky… then again might not be so great haha… I’ve been G0 for a month now so it isn’t that bad… unlike some friends who have been for 2 or 3… haha.

Mingol 5 Online First Grade Zero Tournament.

I’ll probably not make this afterall, it is in the morning but I am out. I guess it is night time for me.

Well first off some of my videos… 😉

Playing online with a few G0 friends… It was a great tournament, me and my friend were top two with about 2 strokes lead over our other friends. Though I missed a putt and ended up with a points loss.

Playing online with a few G0 friends… pulled this while I was in first place haha… Yumin did win the tournament with Turbo Spin Club and Infinity Ball…

Anyway by interesting videos… I meant this… » More ・ もっと読む…?

Hot Shots Golf Out of Bounds

Finally some Official Information to confirm the game. Though I am not a fan of the title, I mean just because they started the Fore trend that they couldn’t go back to using numbers doesn’t mean they need to come up with weird ones. Unless the person who came up with the name was constantly every hole then I guess there is no complaints there… haha, but the other way to look at it is that we are now able to hit to fairways of different courses providing a slightly free or boundless game play. The other sad part is there is only one screenshot that is new… hopefully as they cover the game in the next few weeks we will be actually getting new things to look at.

Jasmine, Conan and Maruyama are still in these screens so does that mean there is no change to 3D Models? I wonder if it supports 1080p now that would be nice, actually would be nice to know what took their time if there is such minimal changes… So what should we call the game now in short form? HSGOB or HSGOOB? Hot Shots Goob? Anyhow I probably won’t be able to keep up with the news since I don’t really look at the PlayStation.Blog site and might be going overseas for abit so remind me to update if people see new stuff… 😉 Head over to the PlayStation.Blog to read it up I guess…

Took my time… Actually I also reset the game so I could get a nice screenshot of it haha. 😛 Not really a hard thing in MingolP2 as everyone just levels up to G0 after playing around 30 Grade Tournaments or something, I haven’t actually lost so I have no idea how it actually works properly. Though my friend says if you don’t win for 10 rounds, you will drop back down. :S

The reset was so it wouldn’t save and I could get a different background on a different course haha. 😀

An update is coming tomorrow… Well it is good news for me cause I wanted the Camp Lobby haha. I’ll edit this later as I suspect more updates such as being able to create Silver Peak C.C. games. Nothing was added, not even a patch was required for the lobby to appear. I guess this was previously planned lobby, also lobbys are controlled on the server side anyway…

This is the nice part. But the Camp Lobby still lacks something… » More ・ もっと読む…?

How was the 1st day of 2008 for everyone? It was way hot over here… Oh there was End of Year and New Year Tournaments which ran throughout the day in Mingol 5, I think it was a last minute decision since there was no news update mentioning them being available. Some of them were just unrestricted tournaments.

Minna no Golf of 2007

Other than that had a great game on MingolP2… just wasn’t doing as well on Mingol 5, though that isn’t an issue since I’m G0 and have no tournaments to play… Clap Hanz should have had an G0 New Years Tournament! Which would have been quite interesting since there is probably about 15 or 20 G0 players now. Also probably 5 extras who have so much free time that they made another G0. Fun right?

Starting 2008 with -23.

So apart from obtaining a PSP Slim before end of the year. My site went over bandwidth, I guess I should have moved files off to my other host to reduce bandwidth consumption… but other than that this year has been a good year for Mingol players, though not as great of an year for those who have wanted to obtain the English version of the series.

Minna no Golf of 2007

Oh, for those who didn’t know… There is actually a Playstation Portable Slim [and Lite] Minna no Golf Portable 2 Pack. I’m not a fan of the Slim & Lite suffix to the new redesigned PSP… but the new update is really nice. I also tried to play it on the large screen through the component cable, works nice but with such a large screen the game looks abit like a PSone game… There is stuff you just don’t notice when it is on the original screen. Anyway hope next year is a great year for those who have been patient and waited so long for the English version, I might pick it up depending on how everything goes around here.

I’ve completed the Characters list for Portable 2 now…

December 28, 2007 · Type: Mingol Event · Shihiko

The Japanese Playstation site mentions an update to the Minna no Golf Portable 2 Official site, though it isn’t really that interesting. Just a few videos of someone playing the game online and getting -14 in 9 holes… 😛 XL Cup of course, though I wish they would hit the shots properly instead of missing perfect impact so much.
