I've bought a new controller for it. Wireless this time. It's black so I'll need to create some sort of distinction between this new one and my black PS3 controller.

Well, that broke. Refund time!

When they say: "Quality first" It sometimes means that quality is the first thing that goes bad.

It was an unofficial product anyway, normally I avoid those for electronics, but I wanted a wireless PS2 controller which were never made officially. :P

I did expect it to last longer than 2 hours of gameplay though...



Also one of the lecturers for two of my classes is a moron. So much of a moron:

- He felt like insulting my family. Claiming that I should change my name because he cant spell it correctly. My dad now wants to beat him up, and such an event will be enjoyed by me.
- Gloated that he has a PhD when a colleague of his does not in a friends feedback on an assignment.
- Agreed with a statement I made, but didn't change grades to accommodate for the situation. (in a team project, I was not given any tasks to do by the team leader, and when I asked for one, I was told that everything was under control, I get downgraded because of that, claiming "I didn't do enough" despite not being given any objectives to contribute to, I commented about the lack of communication, he agreed with me but didn't take it into account.)

Answer me this, if I'm not given any tasks to do, and when I ask for one, they claim that everything is under control, what can I do?

He has another annoying shtick that drives everyone nuts as well, where he says if stuff "makes any sense, I don't know" it got annoying, real fast.

It became a meme among us: http://memegenerator.net/indecisive-jodie

Made some clean up on my troublesome computer. What a mess such a file system can become over a few years. ;)  Deleted a great bunch of old files that i have no use for anymore. Including a loot of old screencaps. I have most of them on a back up, so that will have to do.

I haven't been able to play Minecraft in over a month because my brother and his friends keep hogging it for everything from Call of Duty to Baten Kaitos, plus the fact I don't have an account on the new PC yet. I miss when the PC and consoles were actually on separate screens...

A twenty year old guy sneaked in to Copenhagen Zoo. Apparently he spent the night among the animals.
This morning he was found dead among the tigers.
How and why he ended up there is still a mystery.

WOOT!

Metal Gear Solid 4 is to get trophy support!

http://www.joystiq.com/2012/07/12/metal-gear-solid-4-best-version-also-includes-full-install-opt/
http://www.joystiq.com/2012/07/11/report-metal-gear-solid-4-finally-getting-trophies/

About god damn fucking time Konami!

I wonder if the re-releases "full install" option patch will be added to the current version of the game...?

I noticed if a game is both X360 and PS3 then only X360 will have that sort of thing. I'm not sure if any games break the mold...

Strangely, that's actually quite true. There could be a number of reasons why. For example, since the X360 uses DVD while the PS3 uses Blu-Ray it could be that the data install extracts the data to the harddrive and decompresses it, which would naturally make load times quicker. While on the PS3 since it has much more space to work with doesn't have it's data compressed.

Metal Gear Solid 4 needs data installs because the game is so big. It was announced in 2008 that even a dual layered disc which offers fifty gig of data wasn't enough, and it had to be compressed.



And while reading some fan fic over some celestial topics, I got reading some wiki articles about natural satellites. For some reason, I've had a strange interest in astronomy. But it's more just about reading it, then actually practicing it, I don't have a telescope or anything.

Anyway, just a few days ago, Wednesday to be exact, a new moon around Pluto was discovered, P5. It was only a year ago, that the fourth, P4, was discovered.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S/2012_P_1

Somethings going on around Pluto. A probe is scheduled to perform a fly-by, scheduled to occur in 2015. It'll also be studying the other four moons of Pluto, as well as Pluto itself...

Minecraft lets player Kurtjmac of Far Lands or Bust seems very into astronomy, I wonder what he'd have to say about P5's discovery...

Trophies + Metal Gear Solid 4 + Full Install Option = Win and much Frolicking with Mr. Playstation 3.

Save data from before the update to include trophies can't be used, so I gotta play through the entire game again... Not that's a bad thing.

I'm desparate for an outback tileset for RPG Maker VX Ace (Though a VX one will do, heck I could probably convert one for XP if it wasn't too big). I need giant tree(think Click Clock Wood), carnival/theme park, and Beanstalk Way tilesets as well. Heck a candyland tileset wouldn't hurt either.
