Official PS3 Owner! (Plus some other Black Friday crap)

Hey! Hey! Listen!

I just acquired my PS3! I took advantage of Sony Style's Cyber Monday deal, after a terrible, terrible experience trying to exploit deals on Black Friday. Now, while I know it seems silly that people in this day and age are waking up at ungodly hours to fight the traffic and insane crowds, I sort of have a soft spot for it. For one thing, I'm a big guy (muscular wise), and have little to no fear of long lines and nutso crowds. I'll throw-down an old lady no problem. Secondly, I snagged some sweet deals last year, so I thought maybe I could go two-for-two.

Well, all I got was a head cold standing out in the rain.

I should have known it would be a disaster when I arrived at Wal-Mart at 4am to see the damn store open and ready, people walking in and out 1 hour before it was to officially open. Hell, they even set up the dividers and barriers for the people to stand in. Wow. And since neither the website nor the circular said anything about ticket holding or doorbuster deals or allowing some people in early, I was absolutely floored. Needless to say, the inside and staff was a mess. (Also, Staples didn't even carry an advertised laptop I wanted, so double fail on my part.)

I ended up getting both online, so, I wasted 24 hours and all I got was sick.

But lessons learned. Now I have the goods!



Even my dog was excited for me!



Or maybe she was just wondering what I was doing with that camera phone.

So I hooked it up with all it's HD glory, and it is sitting comfortably in my den.



I've been having a lot of fun with the games that it came bundled with -- the first Uncharted and Infamous. Also, I got Metal Gear Solid 4 off one of Amazon's lighting deals for 20 bucks. Sweet.

I'm now part of the new wave of gamers. I feel relevant now. My PSN name is kjohnson1585. I'm not too creative when it comes to nomenclature.

So, I hope to see ya'll around somewhere!

Oh... and: ENGLISH MOTHERFUCKER, DO YOU SPEAK IT:



I most certainly do.
