I'm almost glad I don't have a PS3 right now. Hopefully by the time I get one again this will all be fixed.

I may very well be in a retirement home by the time it is fixed.

In fact, maybe this would be the time to find a good deal on one on the Ebay.

Apparently they've also added 2 free games to the list of 'please forgive us' goodies. 2 from a list of 5... they better be good ones

I learned about the Eihort Minecraft world viewer, which was something as soon as I'd found I realized was a critical missing piece in the game. Basically you just fly around in an omnipotent third-world Source-game style view, but the really awesome part is you can peek underground, see what caverns you have yet to find, and isolate where specific mineral deposits are.

It's ridiculously easy to use, too, and the usable view distance is insane.

So insane, in fact, that after an hour or so of filling in unexplored gaps I saw around the main cavern I first explored a month or so ago, I went back into Eihort, cranked up the view distance, and surveyed the surrounding underground caverns, whereupon I got a serious case of vertigo/Lovecraftian horror trying to comprehend the enormity and futility of ever trying to explore the rest of the caves. As the maximum map size in Minecraft is 8 times the surface area of the Earth, I just.....

It's kind of like if you were floating in the ocean, and suddenly were able to look clear down for two miles and saw everything floating in between. I'm going to go curl up in a corner for a while.

I hate to even mention it, but Sony apparently said "by the 31st" in a statement. That of course could mean that online is back up this week and the rest is by the 31st, or it could mean that nothing is back up until the 31st. Interpret it however you like.

Started Infamous over the weekend, game is a blast so far. Should have started it long ago, I think I've had the game for at least a year now. Very cool superhero-y sandbox type game.

So Fallout: New Vegas has a DLC coming out next week set in Zion's National Park here in Utah.

Fallout: New Vegas: Honest Hearts Video Game, Announce Trailer HD | Video Clip | Game Trailers & Videos | GameTrailers.com

Even though I never really got majorly into New Vegas, and gave up on it long ago, I don't think there's any way i can pass on this.


By the way, PSN is still down.

Started New Vegas yesterday in fact and ended up playing an unhealthy amount (maybe 10 hours?). Absolutely enthralled and far superior to Fallout 3, at least for my tastes.
