    How many of you who have bought a new PS3? The thing is, when you go on your computer these days, you can't even access the account maker. Yeah, you heard right. I was shocked when I found out myself. When you get to http://us.playstation.com/ , go... More
  • The Very Controversial Idea That Video Games Stop Wars (and Crime and Violence and Thuggery)

    6
    I'm home from work today, so I'm going to post my blog a bit earlier than usual. Furloughs stink because I'm losing money, but I'm gaining time, and with a limited supply of time (I *am* mortal, after all), I consider it a fair trade.... More
  • The Handheld Problem

    11
    My family has never been considered really lucky by any stretch of the imagination, but there was one exception. Back in 2005 or so, my little brother won a free PSP in some raffle he entered on a whim. It was really random, but we weren't complaining... More

    This one is better. Trust me. I promise. I think it's a whole lot more fluid, there's more dialogue, and there's more background. This is all just an experiment to see if I can really write, please, PLEASE, leave your input in the form of... More
