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...

You know those awesome magnets?  Well, not anymore.  Just because a handful of stupid kids swallowed some we can't have anything fun...

Get them while you still can, because once they're out of stock that's it.

I tried the Move controls at PAX.  Do not recommend.  Stick to a Dualshock.

Not a fan of super-sugary cereals, but I do eat Honey Bunches of Oats everyday.

Okami HD should be moved to the top of that list.  I'm serious.

I second (or is that third now?) this motion.  I'm not sure when I'm going to get to Okami HD, but I've already played it.  If you haven't...don't wait.

Haruka's whole segment just seems out of place and out of character.  If this was how they were going to make her a playable character then I wish they didn't.

Two hours is fast.  I've been downloading it for like 5 hours now and it's still not done.  Mind you, my connection is extremely fast when connecting to anything besides Sony's servers.  But anything from PSN is always excruciatingly slow...

Never buy pre-ground coffee, unless you're some kind of addict who's going to go through a whole bag in a couple days.  I always buy beans, and I keep them in the freezer (no, seriously, they last longer that way and it doesn't really have any downside).

Well, honestly you can watch just the first half and pretend it ends after episode 14.  It's a complete story.  In fact that's how it was written initially, the novelization wasn't supposed to be a series at first.  But it was popular so it got expanded upon.

Is Sword Art Online any good?

The first half is pretty decent.  The current arc is...blah.

Here is the best analysis of why the Star Wars prequels were so friggin terrible that I've ever seen.  It's seriously long, though.  Like almost as long as the movies.  So make sure you have some time.

Conclusion: there was a lot more wrong with those movies than the actors.  Actually they had some decent actors but gave them shit to work with.

The franchise has nowhere to go but up, right?
