Playstation Network Outage

Ahh yes. The wonderful topic. Luckily as I seem to be one of the only of my friends to not care for an Xbox I can provide honest feedback.

The network outage to me seems like there was an intrusion. The playstation network engineers or whatever detected this and shut the network down. A lot of people are going beserk about this and I think I heard someone is trying to take them to court (good luck lol). I see them shutting it down as a positive. Why leave the network open thinking that a small or big "intrusion" is irrelevant and personal information is stolen. Then we would have rights to be bloody angry. As is they can do whatever they want with the network. They could probably even shut it down, not smart, but plausible.

I really don't see what the big fuss is all about. I just move to the next device in my house when one is crapping out. Hello PC :D

Ramble complete, good day!

None or Six

Laughter never is amiss in the world of gaming. That one sentence "None or Six" shows hopefully, humor will not be forgotten in Guild Wars 2. As we have already seen references to popular youtube (The lightning bolt audio clip) and other humorous antics.

The response has been sort of mixed I feel about throwing in references in a "older" game world. I personally would love any references to laugh at with my friends. This adds life and color to the gaming world that seems missed in other games. Some games I have heard slight humor for example "Global Agenda." Some commander in the Sonaron Desert marching with his henchmen goons beside him. He said something along the lines of "March faster, do you got sand in your butts?" This was sort of humorous but I guess immature at the same time. Still though the attempt at humor at that was the main point.

Humor can be welcomed in any game. Well any I play, anyways.

Ramble complete, good day!
