I didn't realize I could download PSP games to the PS3 and then transfer them.  That certainly fixes the problem.  Now if only Nintendo had a set up like that with Wii and 3DS downloads...

Generally speaking, though, I don't like 3D Zelda and find the entire games to be 'annoying sequences.' I made it to the Triforce chart section in Wind Waker, and beat Skyward Sword. SS was FULL of 'annoying sequences.' I hate OoT and have never been able to get through that game, it just felt like such a damn slog to me. The 2D ones (especially the Capcom ones and LttP) seemed to abandon that "BIG ADVENTURE SO WE MUST SEND YOU ON ALL MANNER OF ANNOYING TASKS BEFORE YOU CAN GET TO THE DUNGEON' pretense, but it's been a long time so I may not remember as well.

You are a very, VERY brave soul, I give you that!
 
(Okay, okay, we're all adults here so I don't expect that to start up a lot of shit, but at other gaming forums I could see a ten page firestorm following.)

Thread duty:  Like many others I also highly recommend 999 and Hotel Dusk.  There's plenty of stuff out there, though, as some others have noted.  The DS is an RPG and graphic novel beast.

Do you know why it won't work on the WiFi at your place? I had to change the settings on my router temporarily to get it to connect.

All it tells me is that it is incompatible with the security.  I get the same problem with the 3DS and DS I have and yet my Wii and PS3 connect with ease.

Why don't you use MediaGo? It isn't great, but you can buy and download PSP games with it on your computer.

Thanks for the lead, I was unaware of that.  EDIT:  Too bad it's Windows only. :(

Roughly 25 hours into Assassin's Creed 2.  Altair's armor is awesome.  Beautiful, in fact.  Meanwhile I've been grabbing random trophies and progressing through the story as needed to open up the world -- I'm on sequence 10 -- but I spend more time admiring the architecture and compulsively hunting down treasure and codex pages than I do assassinating people, with the notable exception of archers trying to keep me off of rooftops.  Bastards.

I must say, one thing Assassin's Creed has taught me is that there are very few simple pleasures that are quite as satisfying as punching a really bad lutenist in the face and then hauling ass.

EDIT:  Does anyone else get songs not from the game stuck in their head while playing games?  When playing through sections of Sly 3 that involved using the Guru to jump on guards' backs, possess them, and then ride them into various crap you wanted destroyed (killing them in the process) the Waylon Jennings song Ride Me Down Easy or rather, the line "Ride me down easy lord, ride me down slow, leave word in the dust where I lay..." seemed twistedly appropriate.  Also, when I'm rowing around Venice in Assassin's Creed 2 The Congos song Row Fisherman tends to pop up in my head.

WRPGs
Quote
For thinking they're hilarious looking right off the bat.  Which is pretty goddamn ironic if I side more with JRPGs (which can be equally "hilarious" looking for different reasons... For example: Infamous versus Eternal Sonata.  I wanna make fun of Cole every minute for being a grunge-punk, Batman-lung-cancer-wannabe with super static powers.... but Eternal Sonata takes place in Anime-Chopin's death dream...and deals with his sister in some time-loop[?] in that dream[?] and _______????_____??).  But this argument is old.  I've been getting into quite a few lately too.

Your description of the main character in Infamous is one of the funniest I've read in a while.  On a related note I've noticed that you seem to have pretty well developed tastes in regards to the art style of games and this combo makes me think that I may be giving Infamous a skip for a while in spite of hearing from other quarters how OHMYGODZTOTALLY AWESOME it is.  Hopefully that won't end up on my regrets list in a couple of years.

EDIT:  This reminds me, one regret I have is that I didn't thoroughly explore the three bit platformer series of last generation (Jak/Sly/Ratchet) as thoroughly as I could have in spite of being aware of them.  That two of the three developers have jumped from platformers to third person action/adventure games (Infamous and Uncharted) makes me pretty sad and does not seem likely to change soon.  On the other hand the Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time demo is pretty solid so I'm happy to see that another company is picking up the torch in the case of that series.

Thanks for the lead on this, guys.  Sounds like a lot of game for $15.  Now I'll just have to see if the PSP can handle the wi-fi at the library since it won't work with the wi-fi at the house.

I just got a healed picture of a really fun tattoo I got the opportunity to do... between this piece and the fact that I nabbed X-Com for 25 bucks at wal-mart this black friday officially rocks for me :)


Color me impressed.  The last gaming tattoo I saw was a Mario 1-up mushroom, this seems significantly more complicated.

Actually, now that I think about it, the last gaming tatoo(s) I saw were a set of Foxhound logos.  Still.

Neil Young - Everybody Knows this is Nowhere

One hell of an album, if not as developed song-writing wise as some of his stuff in the mid-late '70s.

I get to go to work! yay! I'm thankful for.... FUCK YOU WORLD

On that note, if you shop at a store today, you are encouraging retailers to take more and more people away from their families on holidays.  Please stay home.

Hear, hear!

Really, where does that shit stop?  Are they going to have people coming into work at 8 PM on Christmas day to get an early start on the day-after-Christmas sale this year?

KOTOR1:

Code:
I did a lot of terrible things in my first play through of the game on my quest to become an evil Jedi and didn't feel guilty about most of it, but I felt horrible after I caused the boyfriend and girlfriend that came from fighting families to break up.

Trying to plow through Sly 3 since the Assassin's Creed Trilogy is coming in the mail tomorrow and I'd like to get started on it shortly.  Sly 3 is one long game, though.  (Not by RPG standards, naturally, but certainly by platformer standards.)  That said, Sly 3 is impressing me much more than Sly 2.  While Sly 2 tried to go for an open world/big levels feel it didn't really feel big.  Sly 3 does feel big and the level design is pretty awesome.  I'm also enjoying the additions of new characters which are actually implemented well and see to it that Bentley isn't responsible for every single little odd task one may need done which works nicely for the story.  On that note the mini games are much more well implemented than those in Sly 2 and don't have difficulty spikes resulting from poor design.

That environment is indeed beautiful.  I'm impressed.  Definitely looking forward to this.

I work as a reference assistant at a library, and today I was assisting a 14 year old girl with getting music on her iPod. Her friend came up to her while I was helping out this girl, and the friend asks her, "Is that your dad?"

I turned 24 yesterday.


The answer is no, I'm not her father.

When I was 22, I was working at a Gamestop.  I had a goatee.  My managers were 31 and 29.  We had MULTIPLE customers refer to me as "that older gentleman who works here", thinking I was 40+.  So don't feel so bad.

Wow, that's nuts. It's weird how facial hair can age a dude years. I'm cool with it though, older dudes are distinguished and I'm good with looking distinguished.

Facial hair isn't the only thing.  Ever since I grew my hair out long people think I'm at least a couple of years older than my actual age.  I don't particularly mind, but I do find it interesting.

The chick in that video is foxier than the game version of her... that shouldn't happen either.  With all due respect, her voice is old, and she looks sorta slutty in the game.... pure demon-cougar.


Interesting reasoning.  On an unrelated note, congratulations!  That comment made me click on the link to the video which I didn't expect to happen.  Ever.

Finished Sly 2 and I'm working on 3.  2 wasn't as engaging as I hoped, but then again I was restarting the game half-way through.

As someone else noted, brilliant segue.

In today's news I've ordered the Assassin's Creed Trilogy collection (it's become quite clear that I need to know this series) and I've also managed to order the Jak and Daxter trilogy (rounding out my collection of PS2 platformer trilogies since I already have Ratchet & Clank and Sly).  Yay!  I also couldn't resist a copy of Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition for roughly $20.  I think I have much awesome gaming ahead.
