It's aliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiive!!!!!

I successfully managed to rescue my PS3 from a YLOD!  I have to say, I was skeptical as to whether or not the YLOD fix would actually work, but the results speak for themselves.   And hopefully now after cleaning out the internals and putting the new fan in the old girl will keep going for a while yet.

I don't think it's fair to call this a Star Ocean tease.  Yes there were stars...but that's it.  There was literally nothing else to indicate that it had anything to do with Star Ocean.  But a bunch of people jumped to conclusions.

Do you have any idea how many video games are set in space?

I guess I'm supposed to sound more like this.

Seriously, though, this is what I expected.

And browser games are a big deal, not just in Japan.  They're cheap to make and anyone can play them (just need a computer with a web browser, no specialized systems, etc), so the potential for profit is huge.

Well I honestly can't say I'm surprised.  This is about what I expected.

Actually it doesn't look half bad for a browser game.  But I'm a sucker for oldschool 4X stuff.

That's odd, I had the site left open and the countdown was still going (about 6 minutes left) when I read these posts so I refreshed it and now says zero.  What happened to those 6 minutes?

Well damn, my PS3 is officially YLOD'ed now.  I guess that's not too surprising since it was having fan problems and the YLOD is an overheating issue.  I think I'm going to try to fix it but I need to get a heat gun.

Sega never said anything official about Skies of Arcadia HD.  There were tons of rumours and speculation, though.

Since apparently I have been replacing fans in all my electronics lately...

My PS3 has really not been running well.  I mentioned in crashed in the game journal thread while I was playing Tales of Graces f, but that was just the beginning.  Pretty sure the fan is dying.  So...new fan time!

So I took apart a PS3 for the first time.  Of course I don't actually have the replacement fan yet, but hey, taking things apart is fun.  Man, the old PS3s are beautiful on the inside.  Tightly engineered machines.

The driving dog saga continues!

Am I the only one completely amazed by this?

Here.

Some people are speculating that it's a new Star Ocean game but I'm not sure I buy it.  Well, it's certainly star-y.
1931  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: December 09, 2012, 02:55:25 AM
Was just playing Tales of Graces f, doing the Warrior's Roost arena thing in the future arc.  I worked my way all the way up from the lowest level in one go (no easy task since I'm playing on moderate and haven't power leveled or anything) and was fighting Poisson at the top (and doing pretty well, though it's a long battle 'cause she has crazy hit points) when the game crashed...

That was the first time the game has ever crashed on me, but I don't think I could have picked a worse time if I tried.  I lost about an hour, but it was an hour of constant difficult battles for which there is no guarantee I'll do as well even if I repeat them.  Way to completely sap my desire to keep playing, game.
1932  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Been out of the RPG loop for almost a year....any good RPGs out there for PS3? on: December 08, 2012, 10:48:45 PM
Being out of the loop for a year doesn't really strike me as all that long.  I don't know what you've played, though.  Are you just looking for stuff that came out in the last year?  Here are some recommendations:

Tales of Graces f is the best Tales game we've gotten in a while, but I feel like it doesn't get any respect.  I wonder what percentage of the people constantly whining about Vesperia PS3 actually played Graces f...because it's the better game.

Atelier Meruru - If you like these games then Meruru is probably the best of the bunch.  Combat is much improved and having the three tiers of explorations, alchemy, and development is super-addictive.  But if you don't like the style of these games it's probably not going to change your mind.

Kingdoms of Amalur - Reckoning will probably be remembered more for the quagmire of 38 Studios than anything else, but that aside it's a good game.  A bit on the easy side, but it has fun combat, and interesting world, and lots of stuff to do.

That...wasn't what I expected.

I don't know about visual quality, but they absolutely will block it for lack of trophies.  That is their policy.

Anyway, this announcement is a no-brainer.  We knew it was coming after the first game was announced.  Honestly I'm surprised they're waiting until April...

Disappointed by the lack of dogs...so here:

Sadly I couldn't find the whole story on Youtube so that link is probably your best bet.
