I actually liked the gameplay in Catherine.  But then I like puzzle games.  And you don't usually see puzzle games with a narrative like that...it was and interesting combination.

It is a pretty amazing lineup.  I've never been sold on the whole Playstation Plus thing (Sure there are lots of free games, but are they actually games I want to play?  I'm more worried about wasting my time than saving a few bucks), but this might just convince me to take the plunge.  I feel like a bit of a sucker, though, since I got Gravity Rush just before this was announced.

Once you get that together... how sturdy is it? How hard would you have to press on the top of that shroom to mess it up?

Well, it's definitely got some flex in it but it will restore it's shape after you let go with moderate pressure. 

The legs are the bigger problem.  If they get stuck together they don't come apart...

Estelle encounters a buckyball monster!

Why can't I make shit like that with my buckyball?  I wanted to make a star too, but the positives and negatives get all wonky and I'm left with some stupid shitty warped thing....

It's not that hard, you just have to make the building blocks first.  I recommend starting with hexagons (from a loop of 18 balls) because they're easier to mess around with.  They're super stable structures that bond to each other more weakly than within the hexagon, so you can link and unlink them as much as you want while you just play around.

The other major building structure is the triangle (made from 9 balls), but they actually take some planning ahead.  Once you've bonded a couple triangles together it's really hard to get them apart without deforming them and probably ruining the thing you're making so it's a lot harder to just mess around with them.  Though I did make the legs from loops of triangles but that's a pretty simple structure.

I don't much care for football, but this is awesome:

I don't get it...

Somehow this game kind of got released without me even realizing it existed.  I still barely know anything about it, other than that it's an SRPG in the Ragnarok world.  It doesn't look like any major publication has reviewed it either.

So does anyone know anything about this game?

Gay marriage and legalized marijuana in WA.  Let's go nuts!

How are the load times on the PSN version?  Never actually tried it.  I know that was a definite issue with the PSX version, but with the PSN version it's been read off the HD instead of a very slow CD-ROM drive.

Washington state does all voting with mail-in ballots.  It's really pretty awesome.  I can vote on my time, and take as long as I want to actually research the candidates (sure I knew who I was voting for President, but for some of the smaller local positions I really didn't know anything about them), and there's no finding polling centers, waiting in lines, etc.

Why don't all states do it this way?  It's just better.

Innocence R got pretty mediocre reviews.  I think I can live without it.  And Hearts R...well, we don't really know anything about it.  Hearts was supposed to be quite good but it sounds like they're completely changing the system.

recently bought a vita AC3 liberation bundle( lots of overtime so i treated myself) and ragnarok oddyssey. i really like the vita but as a psp/ps3 owner i loathe the xmb, it just looks to foreign. since you can do the xmb with the dpad now i hope they add a psp/ps3 style theme in the future so i can have a wall paper. also no flash is fail since it means no pandora :(

Took me a minute to figure out what you were talking about since the Vita doesn't have a XMB...

The Vita's interface is called Live Area.  I don't really have anything against it...it's functional but not spectacular.  Which is basically how I feel about XMB, too.  The major difference here is that XMB was designed to be operated with a d-pad while Live Area is obviously touch-based.  Also when you have lots of games installed I like having the option to rearrange the icons as I see fit and the fact that you can see a bunch on the screen at once, which was a major failing of XMB.

I don't know, neither one seems worth getting excited about.

The cat in the microwave thing is an urban legend.  Snopes.

This buckyball thing really upsets me because it's a very clear case of the nanny state gone too far.  Here's a product that was never intended for children, is very clearly labeled that it's not for children, and the company that makes it has always been vigilant about keeping it away from children (refusing to sell it to stores that display it in the same aisle as children's toys, etc), but thanks to a handful of negligent parents who let their kids play with them anyway it has to be banned from anyone anywhere.  That's insane.  Adults can play with magnets without swallowing them.  It's not that hard.

I feel like some bureaucrat was bored and decided to randomly do something to justify his position so now we all have to suffer.  It's that arbitrary.

Trying to upgrade my PS3 hard drive (it's an old 80 GB model so space is really scarce).  Got a new HD, backedup everything up, but unfortunately I completely stripped one of the screws holding the old HD to the cage thingy.  It's really in there tight, hasn't even budged...so now I'm kind of stuck.  Starting to seriously consider buying a new cage on eBay or something, but it would take a while to get here...
