See You All Over At Google+!

I know you think I haven’t been posting. But I have actually. Just on Google+. For me it’s easier and cleaner. The links I post have artwork added to them. I can can add photos too. There’s no word limit like Twitter either. So, if you’d like to still see what I think is funny/groovy/silly come find me on Google+!

The Trials of PS3 Gaming

Seems a lot of people are griping about the PS3’s mandatory updates, not to mention their new terms of service. I have to agree. I like my PS3, but spending upwards of 45 minutes installing a game is not my idea of fun. The whole reason I like console gaming is because you pop in a game and you’re ready to go. I guess those days are over and have been for a while.
