I had an interesting revelation last weekend when I took my PS3 over to a friend's house about LittleBigPlanet's
DLC. As you may recall
I picked up a copy during that crazy GoGamer sale, but I didn't realize at the time that they were the PAL version. This isn't a problem for the most part since the game is region free and runs perfectly fine on my system. What I learned the hard way however, is that for some reason which is beyond my comprehension, all DLC for the game is region locked. In my PAL copy I can't run around with a turkey on my head (downloaded during the Thanksgiving holiday), can't wear an astronaut suit or a Lunar new year outfit, despite having the costumes on my hard drive. Presumably, this means that the paid DLC such as the Metal Gear pack is also incompatible with a game which is not from your own country. I hadn't seen this information anywhere else, so I hope it's helpful to someone out there.
I had a bit of a backslide yesterday, and in a moment of weakness accepted a friend's offer to reinstate my World of Warcraft account. I hadn't played since late Burning Crusade, and a lot of things have changed... mostly for the better, but some changes are just bizarre to me. My main character was a paladin, and their combat mechanics got a complete overhaul since the last time I had played. Have any of you come back to a multiplayer game after a long absence to find things completely different? If so, let me hear about it in the comments.
In honor of tonight's contest,
I'm gonna attempt to recap everyone's blogs with just five words. This isn't easy for me, if you're a regular to this page you know I'm a loquacious bastard. Let's give it a shot though...
