Depends on your tastes and preferences.  First of all, I'd recommend the Ratchet & Clank HD Trilogy over either of those.  I'll (not) briefly profile all three to give you an idea.  

I've played the PS2 ones and 2 of the PS3 ones.  Fantastic games but definitely burnt out on the series.
2  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Jax & Daxter VS Sly Cooper on: April 14, 2014, 04:18:01 PM
Been craving something new to play after recently finishing Infamous: SS, Castlevania LoS2, and South Park so I looked around and saw both Jax & Daxter and Sly Cooper both have anniversary editions with multiple titles in them.  I don't know much about either of them outside of some youtube videos and the fact that they were PS2 platformer games.  Soooo... questions!

-Should I start with the collections and move onto recent titles later or start with the newer and go older? Not sure if Jax and Daxter have a new ps3 game out or not so this might only apply to Sly Cooper.  

-Any particular games within the collection I should avoid?

-I'm not necessarily opposed to getting both, but if you personally could only pick one to play between J&D and Sly, which one would you choose and why?

Dice posted it before, but I think it may have gone unnoticed.

I had a youtube account before Google acquired Youtube. But I've been prodded and prodded and now forced to join Google+ to continue to comment. If it's no big deal to you, that's fine, I don't really care. I still have the right to get annoyed at stupid shit they do though, because I certainly don't owe them anything because I use their "service". They get plenty out of each of us linking back to Youtube, watching their ads, knowing the brand name etc. Forcing me to join a bunch of peripheral shit is annoying and invasive.

So, right now, I'm getting pop-ups saying join us at Google+ or "Why don't you use your REAL NAME for a change, c'mon, this pop up will keep appearing until you doooo" or whatever to comment. I do that, I can comment now, but I have a shitty empty profile linked to my email that is doing nothing but making Google feel better about their failed social media website. How long is it going to be before I start getting pop ups saying "Oh, we see you haven't filled out your About Me section yet! Why don't you come on over and fill that out". "Oh, no picture? No comments for you until we see a picture, bozo."

Even if I just type "aphigeodibngsodlgnoswgbkn" in the about me section and then upload a picture of a generic gaming character as a picture, I'm still getting hassled over stupid shit. It's anti-consumer.

Does this sum up your feelings?

On the other hand grove city is sort of charming.

Grove City is an awesome town.  The Spanish restaurant near the outlets is really good.

On top of that, I'm locked out of my PSN account.

It will not accept the password for my account even though it will accept via PC.

Yay modern gaming!



Did you change passwords?  If so, you have to log completely out of all PS3/PSN accounts on your PS3 and then log back in.

@Akanbe

You realize that the amount of visine, or more specifically the active ingredient Tetrahydrozoline HCL 0.05, needed to cause most of those effects would be something like an entire bottle. And yes, poisoning someone in any regard is poisoning someone regardless, but theft is theft in the same regard. Not saying fight fire with fire, but even animals will stop eating food if it gets them sick. Besides,it's a lot safer than me finding out who ate my food, it may lead to brain damage and heart failure as I beat my lunch out of them.

Seriously though, poison someone at your own risk.

^^Then you probably shouldn't have written "you can't get in trouble for it. Not like you intetionally [sic] poisoned a co-worker".  Also, you don't need a whole bottle to make someone sick.

"In June 2006, five Wisconsin high school students trying to pull the Visine prank poured about a quarter of a bottle of the eyedrops into a classmate's water. The victim spent several days in the hospital recovering from reactions to the poisoning that included a dangerously low heart rate and blood pressure. Each of the five "pranksters" pleaded no contest to misdemeanor counts of battery and disorderly conduct and received sentences of 18 months' probation and 60 hours of community service"

It's difficult to say how much damage 3-5 drops could do to someone due to varying factors, but it's still stupid and reckless considering even a light hospital bill costs $432423809890534534 dollars in this country.

I have a slight suggestion...

Put visine in the food before you put it in the fridge. Obviously you can't eat it, but you'll find the culprit when they make a full on sprint to the bathroom from the super diarrhe shit threatening to fly out of their anus. Plus, you can't get in trouble for it. Not like you intetionally poisoned a co-worker, you just added some medicine to your own food and they had a reaction to it.

I realize that Wedding Crashers make it out to be fairly harmless, but ingesting Visine can cause renal failure (kidney failure) as well as other very serious health effects.   And yes, you can get in deep shit for it.  The police will look at it as if you poisoned your food knowing that someone else was going to eat your food instead of yourself, thus they will argue that you intentionally poisoned someone as people generally don't mess with food they intend to eat themselves.

I'm loving GTA5.  PS3 release has been great for me since PC isn't out yet.  Probably thanks to huge install file, no doubt. 

Anyone else feel like the police are way less on your ass than in IV?  Anyways, the driving is certainly 100x better.



Definitely and as far as I'm concerned, it's much better than previously.  This is how I always wished it would be done since GTA3 on PS2.  You get far enough ahead, you can try and hide until the heat wears away instead of just trying to outrun them endlessly until they give up.  I like this way much much more.

Yodes and I are going to be quite the team for GTA Online.

Ah you're totes right.  Reading comprehension fail.  For some reason I thought they deleted ALL the stuff he downloaded/purchased digitally.
12  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: September 13, 2013, 10:45:42 PM
Wait how can nintendo force-delete your games? I mean I could see revoking your rights to redownload them, but wiping them off your system? That's way intrusive as fuck.

I mean just curious but couldn't Nintendo intentionally brick your system/otherwise lock you out of it if they were upset with you about something?

If any of those were recent purchases, I'd try a chargeback.  Probably wouldn't work but would be worth a shot.
13  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: September 13, 2013, 08:24:58 PM
What the hell, Ashton. That's pretty shitty of Nintendo.

You can't call them up and go 'wtf man?'
Nope, they just told us "nothing we can do."

Between this, the youtube shit, and the Smash Evo incident, I believe I will be buying Nintendo games used from now on.

Starter evolves...

oh man.... they're kinda...really ugly.  Fenekin seems to evolve to get an ear parasite and a genetic stick in its tail, and Chespin's evolution is slowly turning it into a ball.  Froake looks alright, if not the tamest design of the bunch (and it worked).

Alt MewTwo is now a Megaman boss.

Sounds like you get Gen1 starters fairly early so that could be a decent replacement.

I'd rather not get into a huge rant and make an attention whore of myself, but I'll go with a small one. 

I actually have decent gear at the moment (Darklight healing set) and tend to keep up with upgrades, so it's not really about how it affects me.  It promotes carrying by friends.  If a group wants to get someone built up, they'll just run them through the dungeons to get them gear, no matter how bad the player is.  It's not a wall; it doesn't prevent bad players from entering areas at all and bad players are the problem, not good players with bad gear.  In fact, since everyone was complaining about badly geared DDs in AK, I ran with a DRG with a 44 weapon equipped (even the tank pointed it out and laughed) that did more damage, and avoided attacks better, than one two runs later with a Garuda weapon equipped.

tl;dr
It's pointless. It does nothing.  It's a policy I utterly despise.

Oh emm gee they want people to actually see the content they created instead of skipping ahead and being carried by others. 

Not only that, it helps encounter tuning.  If they know the average gear level of the person playing said content, it's going to be a lot easier to tune said content.  Unless there are easy ways around it ala WoW PvP gear, if you're there, you probably have the gear for it and thus any issues are not gear related.

Dramatic much?
