I never took the leap with the original Metal Gear Solid on PS1, just was something I skipped over, and going back and playing the PS3 emulated version now is like cracking open and savouring a really good bottle of aged booze.

Really something, isn't it?

One of the few games from that generation that really holds up, I'd say.

Since PSN is STILL down, I decided to put SOCOM 4 on the shelf and throw in Mass Effect 2. I'd never finished it, as I went directly into 2 after doing two and a half plays through the first game. Burned out, and figured I'd get back into it later. Finished the game and all the DLC up last night (everyone in my squad survived), and I seriously want to do nothing but start the game over again and play as a different class (which is exactly what I did with the first game).

Vanguard sorta sucked in ME2, which is weird since the Vanguard's charge ability is one of the things they showed a ton before the game came out. The game is really built to be a cover shooter, and running around with a shotgun really sucked for that. I also wish I would have prioritized getting all the squad mates and their loyalty missions before anything else, as it was a bummer to get a few of them right at the end and feel like you'd only used them a few times.

Anyways, it's a pretty rare thing to like a massive RPG so much that you immediately want to play it again when you finish. Maybe I'll buy the PS3 version just to get trophies for another play through.


This is my favorite map in the Gears 3 beta:

Yeah I'm starting to get impatient with PSN as well and I don't have an x-box to go to. The problem must be hard to solve if it takes so long.

Update on PlayStation Network and Qriocity – PlayStation Blog

Oh sweet, "within a week". Thanks for the fast response, Sony.



Hallelujah for having a 360.

I didn't even realize the servers were down. I haven't played anything for a while. Sucks balls though. I was getting the itch to snipe some fools on BC2

Apparently PS3 users should be cautious of using their credit card, or so I just read.

I dont think I've ever given it to them. It's always just been the PSN cards.... at least I hope so

This is a nice lesson in online credit card use.

I have a cute little 250$ limit card I use for online stuff, so if it gets stolen worst-case I am not out 1000s of dollas. Never understood how people could go months without noticing credit card fraud or unknown charges on their CCs, to be honest.

they have one of my cards... i'll keep an eye out of course, as i always do, but i'm not overly worried.

i mean honestly... what are the odds that of the millions of credit cards that these hackers allegedly have gotten that mine is one of the ones they'd actually use. not to mention they wouldn't be able to use it online because the verification codes weren't compromised.

i won't store my CC info with them anymore once they get this thing up and running... but i'm not exactly worried about anyone charging a trip to the bahamas on my shit any time soon.

That's the thing. It looks bad, but to be honest the only thing people need to really look out for is if they use the same password like '123cats' for every goddamn site on the internet as well as their PSN account. That and if any emails make it through your spam filter that come from the Zimbabwe branch of Sony Computer Entertainment.

I'm not either. Particularly since Sony would be required to reveal if they are certain CC info was leaked. At this point, they haven't. Doesn't mean they won't eventually, but whatevs.

The biggest thing you have to fear is if you're dumb enough to register for PSN with your main email account and use the same password for both.
