ikiryou Went to play MGSV, got prompted to download the MGO data; it's not on the PS Store yet. Or maybe it's Kojima-san's way of telling me it's not the real MGO data, but is instead a janitor who once protected me from a puddle of pee and now wears my face.CJ Andriessen Going grey >>>>>>>>>>> Going baldRudorlf Recently watched the Cannon Films documentary, by the director of Not Quite Hollywood. Super entertaining, hilarious, and it almost made me want to watch some of the Cannon films. Almost.CaimDark Reloaded PEOPLE! PEOPLE! PEOPLE!
Tomorrow I'm meeting Shade of Light in RL!able to think Tip for those who have plasma TVs and are playing MGSV; go into settings and make the weapon icon only appears when you're aiming.

After watching the pilot, I'm cautiously optimistic. Looking forward to the rest in November.Nekrosys I'm going to be honest; this is my new favourite line in anything ever. GOTY 2015 and all that.

Congratulations Destiny players, you're all now The Taken King.VIRGO I have (jokingly) wanted a remake/sequel to Geist. And then I went to YouTube to watch a longplay to see it in action again and thought, "nevermind!" The humblest person I know I'd been worried that Jim had been losing his sanity with all the Steam sludge he's always attacking. If you've been feeling the same way, good news. His new vid warmed that void and reminded me that I follow him because he had no sanity to start with. ;)CoilWhine Reading the Star Citizen expose reminded me of the whole Firefall mess last year.

GoofierBrute I went from listening to the soundtrack of SMT IV, to the soundtrack to Mario Kart 8, Smash 4, Fire Emblem, and now chilling with some Mother 3. All of it was pretty awesome by the way.Pixie The Fairy After the 11th, I'm going into cryosleep until SMT IV Final is out. I'm sure Mike, Occams and Strider can manage without me.

Given how nobody really reviews all of them (and after spending time downloading bad ones), I thought it'd be a nice time to try and do it for the PS users out there. So...
