Here’s an excerpt from my latest CNET Asia blog entry:
Five swords. Five heroes of the online gaming industry.
It’s somewhat fitting that Singapore firm Infocomm Asia Holdings (IAH) turned to movies for inspiration as it unveiled its ambitious plan to consolidate the market in several Southeast Asian countries and create what you might call an ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) for online gaming.
So there they stood at the end of the press briefing that kicked off the “One Market, One Asia–Uniting Asia Online” regional online gaming conference held on September 27 at the Boulevard Bar at the Red Dot Traffic Building. Five stalwarts bearing five famous swords. Well, replicas of the swords, at least.

Oh, and I want Hellgate: London. ‘Nuff said.
