It finally happened. I got the Red Ring of Death. After two and a half years of unfaltering invincibility, my Tower of Babel has finally crumbled.
Over those two and a half years, I've watched the 360s of others rise and fall and never felt the longevity of mine would be of any threat.
Ironically, the RRoD usually strikes before the release of a new game, or the purchase of a new game (Spectral Force 3, in my case), and this time was no exception. Now, it will collect dust, until I receive the coffin to send my fallen soldier back home in.
Destructoid users: I thought my console was the Killdozer to end all Killdozers, but my arrogance got the best of me.
Now all I can do is grieve....
Now on a lighter note, I am proud to announce the first annual
SOURGR8PES BIKINI CARWASH to buy me a new PS3 to pass the time...
Ladies, do YOU have what it takes to wash cars in skimpy clothing while old men leer at you, while I not make money for my not PS3, so I may play not Disgaea 3?
GOOD! Sign up now to become a part of the most prolific bikini carwash since 2 hours ago on the Playboy channel! You shan't regret it, and neither shan't I!

Okay, I've been trying to keep my blog posts informative so people don't start yelling at me to GTFO to the forums. So here comes something somewhat appealing to fans of the Persona and Shin Megami Tensei series.
I've been following this for awhile, but I just found a trailer for it today, released not too long ago. It's loosely based off of Persona 3, as it takes place 10 years after the original game and the main characters are 3 brothers.
Now trailers are a cryptic thing; they don't tell you crap, but it definitely leaves you wanting more. That having been said, I doubt this one is going to be about hanging out at the kareoke bar, and trying to get to 2nd base with the hot manager of the Kendo club...
So what do you guys think? Yuki or Yukari... Er... I mean, does it look cool or not?
While doing some aimless meandering through Japanese clothing sites, fruitlessly looking for a shirt even remotely related to a Jrock band, I came across this piece of awesomeness: A Raccoon City police jacket. I can't read none of the text, but hey, it LOOKS cool.
Although I can do without that huge, obvious cross on the back that screams "JESUS LOVES ME! NOT YOU!", that S.T.A.R.S logo on the sleeve just plain rocks. Oh yeah, and I'm a sucker for faux fur trim. Now I can waddle up to people and yell "I'm a Member of S.T.A.R.S!" like Jill from MvC2.
Anyone proficient enough in the language of bird tracks to get any insightful details out of the description, how much that would be in USD$$, and how the hell to get something delivered from Japan...
No, this isn't a thinly veiled rant about all the hottest releases being released in the holiday season, but really more of a need to give to others. Well, I can't really twist anyone's arm or judge them on their decision, seeing I'm just some faceless drone on the internet, but I'd like to do my part to get the word around.
I just recently read about The Child's Play Charity today, and while I would like to donate several DS games and am definitely buying a inexpensive toy for the cause; I wish I could do more.
Being a fulltime student and paying rent leaves me not too much disposable income to play with. I don't know about you guys, but I couldn't imagine how great it would be to have some kid born with AIDS or suffering from cancer or something that would make their life truly miserable, open up a present only to find a brand new PS2 from a complete stranger!
I've never been in a hospital for more than a few hours myself, so I couldn't imagine what it's like to spend your childhood inside of one. What a better way to kill some time than with some Tetris or taking care of a Nintendog.
At the risk of sounding preachy or sounding like Bono; This season, just squirrel away $10 or so, visit The Child's Play site, pick a hospital, and go make some kid's holiday season something to look forward to.
