I don't know, it seemed like I waited forever before registering here... maybe that was Internet Time or something.
It sort of freaks me out a little that I decided to take a look at
I just don't have the time to spare to read things here there days, otherwise I'm sure I'd be keeping up like I used to!
Still a fan of most things BioWare (minus the star wars crap). I believe after I finish Dragon Age II it will be time to pull out the BG/ToB/BGII CDs. My wife will hate me for it, since I'll be playing for countless hours... But my netbook will probably handle them ok. So... I could play it in front of the TV and just smile and agree with whatever she says, just like normal.
Oversized touchpad == Macbook Wheel???
(Yes this is a joke folks)
Yes, I probably would. If there were some good games out for the PSP I would fire it up more often. The problem is that right now, in terms of value, I'm much further ahead playing free (or very cheap) games on the phone. The games on the phone are probably much cheaper to make too! An indie developer could crank one out much faster than it would take to get a full fledged game out on to the PSP or the DS.
I'm actually in this group. I own a PSP, and have an old GBA I used to use for long trips. The GBA is still nice for when kids come over and I don't want them to break my PSP, but then again... I hardly play the darned thing these days. Every time I look through the store for new games for the PSP there's just nothing there that's interesting (this includes the PSN).
If I have a need for mobile gaming I just fire up my android phone... lots of games on there which are either free, or really cheap. And I already have my phone in my pocket. No need to carry around an extra device any more!
I actually read your post and all responses. I think you have a good point and would have modded it up if my mod points didn't expire.
The same thing we do every night, Pinky: Try to take over the world!
Communications companies are taking steps to actively avoid being turned into "bit-pushers", as they called it at my previous employer. They are resorting to slimy tactics such as putting intentional packet jitter on traffic in order to degrade service for applications like VOIP. Of course, if you want to avoid the jitter you can pay for that! Don't underestimate how much effort a TelCo will pursue in order to avoid having their revenues shrink.
