Suggestions/Help Needed For School Gaming Club

For those of you who don't know already, I'm a High School teacher in Arizona. Last year I started a gaming club, and our numbers were pretty good. (Actually, we have more members than any other non-athletic club at the school). However,...

 
 
 

PAIN Update Live!

For those waiting on TF2 update to hit, boot up your dusty PS3 and boot up PAIN! The hefty 50 meg update (part 1 of 2 (coming next week)) adds a buttload of "new" content and juicy fun! If you need the sordid details, head to the ps.blog ...

 
 
 
 

My Computer is no longer Borked

I love that TigerDirect has actual stores that I can visit (huzzah Chicago area) and take advantage of their sweet deals on electronics without waiting for shipping and/or signature hassles. The good: GeForce 8600 GT is now mine and runnin...

 
 
 
 

My PS3 Has Returned!

Great news: I got my PS3 back just now; it's currently system updating itself to the newest firmware. Better news: it wasn't formatted or replaced, it's my good ol' system (minus the good part for failing on me) Bad news: I have to go to ...

 
 
 

PixelJunk Monsters: Encore info Surfaces!

from the PlayStation.blog, wonderful news arrives! PJ:M gets some DLC love! I am sort of excited about this, at least until I find out some more info on pricing. But here's what we do know: * 1 new island, Toki Island * 15 new l...

 
 
 

How to get in MGO Beta if you don't have a code yet:

EDIT: Requires GAP membership; sorry if you aren't in the GAP; I joined years ago so I don't know how they changed requirements of entry. Outside of preordering or harassing up some codes, just head on over to the GAP site (via playstati...

 
 
 

My PS3... Shipped? Anyone Else Surprised?

Yesterday (since in God's time zone, where I live, it's now Thursday) Sony shipped my repaired PS3 back to me. At least, I think it's repaired. E-mail wasn't clear on type of replacement. I won't complain, as long as it works. Nothing...

 
 
 

Sony did Something Right Under Warranty?

I got my SIXAXIS controller back from Sony. For those who aren't in the know, the left stick was jamming some and wouldn't go back to a neutral position, so it would constantly glide up. I tried cleaning, air blasting, etc and couldn't ge...

 
 
 

The Gamers' Toilet Seat?

Stumbled across this while I was checking the deal of the day on Amazon's Gold Box. Oddly enough gamers really enjoy browsing different toilet seats (especially ones that shoot water at your posterior after doing your business).

 
 
 

So I finally tried the Pandora PSP Trick...

First I have a change in the whole "time to completion" Sony thing. The online service now acknowledges my shipment arriving, saying it's been assigned to some one. They say it will take 7-15 business days not including shipping to repair...

 
 
 

Day 2: Still no Update from Sony

Their original email and form said to give it 2 days before the website can show that my system has been given to a tech to be worked on, but so far, not so good. Then again, I sent in my SIXAXIS controller roughly 3 weeks ago and that doe...

 
 
 

Day 1: PS3 arrives at Sony

As stated above, my UPS tracking number claims Sony has received my PS3 yesterday (4/17). So what am I doing to pass my time? I know you all care a ton, so I'll keep it simple. 1: Sam & Max 104 (from start to finish). 2: FFVII: Crisis...

 
 
 

Received my PS3's Coffin Today

They shipped out out Next Day Air on Friday (meaning Monday since UPS likes to charge extra for true NEXT DAY shipping :)) I must say that, even though I have no pictures here, Sony really did good work for this whole "CONSOLE BROKE, FIX...

 
 
 

TF2 PC Anyone? (Age III?)

Now that my PS3 is borked, I need something to do to pass the time. As it turns out, the dtoid community is where I will turn to get myself entertained since the PSP i reserve only for times when I am out of the house or trying to sleep (a...

 
 
 

My PS3 is Borked? (UPDATE)

Funny we had a front-page post on something like this just a bit ago... In mid-session rocking out with MaxVest today, my game wouldn't load the song he selected. We had been playing roughly 45 minutes when this error occurred. There wa...

 
 
 
 

The Effect of the MMORPG on Gaming

NOTE: By no means is this saying MMORPGs are the only thing to shape gaming in any aspect listed below, I'm just saying that my observations of changes in Gaming at large were indeed affected by the prevalence of the MMORPG in using such th...

 
 
 
 
 

Rock Band DLC week of 3/18 announced

Bear with me, I'm trying to post this via my phone as I'm out in Austin right now for SXSW. Next week for DLC we have the much awaited Earache Thrash Pack. All tracks are $1.99 (160 Microsoft Points) or $5.49 (440 Microsoft Points) for th...

 
 
 

PS3 Firmware update 2.17 out now! UPDATE

Just posting this while I download my 2.17 update for my ps3. Will update with features when I see what's up. I'm hoping for the huge feature changes, but I kinda doubt it unless sony doesn't go by standard version upgrade infos (ones col...

 
 
 

Most memorable soundtrack... ever?

There has always been a home in my heart for games with good soundtracks. The advent of gaming sites dedicated to the game soundtrack helped further my love, giving me the opportunity to hear the originals and those that others have shown ...

 
 
 
 

Going to see Freezepop in Chicago Wed. Night.

Though I've known and enjoyed Freezepop (moreso the music of the "Duke of Pannekoeken") for quite some time, I learned of them through videogames. Hooray for rhythm games! Every HMX game since then has included a Freezepop song, and I...

 
 
 

PS Home update (Screens inc)

I don't know if I'm waiting for this to come out due to excitement or just to get it over with, but a free massive update is something we all can enjoy. If this does what it hopes to, this year could really be the year of the PlayStation 3...

 
 
 

Just an SD Gamer in an HD World...

In this world of 720p gaming (finally 1080i/p is hitting a lot of games), I feel left in the cold. Games custom tailor their graphics (most notably text) to HD resolutions, leaving the non HD screens with fuzzy, unreadable words confusing ...

 
 
 

Rock Band DLC: Week of 01/14/2008 Impressions

"Action" made famous by Sweet (cover) "Last Train to Clarksville" made famous by the Monkees (cover) "All the Small Things" by Blink 182 True to their word, the post was made on Monday of the new DLC at the usual prices. One the one hand,...

 
 
 

Split Screen Multiplayer a Thing of the Past?

Well, it's happened again. I invited people over for some gaming at my place. It all started out fine with some 3-player rock band (damn you peripherals and friends that cancel at the last moment that have the 2nd guitar you were all plan...
