Short Circuit–My new old computer and the games i’m going to play

The title of this post comes from me building a new computer out of necessity when my power supply died last year. I thought to myself, why replace the power supply when I can deck this shit out and build a rig that I could be proud of…so I did!

I’ve since started playing Bioshock 2, Resident Evil 5 and Batman Arkham City (looks fucking amazing) and plan on installing several other Games for Windows Live titles in the coming weeks. What sucks ass is that all the games listed have XBOX 360 controller support except Bioshock 2 so I had to spend 2 hours creating an Xpadder profile to get all the buttons just right and boy was it worth it. Hmmm i guess that’s it….’nuff typing bye bye now.

 

 

P.S. I’ve since managed the cables properly for better airflow after photos were taken.

Freshly Wrapped Japanese Console! Hey Hey Love Games Play!

So today I got home from an awesome “staycation” that my girlfriend put together for my birthday and needless to say, “it was fucking awesome.” When we returned home the wicked Snow Mother of the Atlantic rained down her putrid discharge which most people just call snow, but that shit totally fucked up my internets!!! So without the interwebs I got pretty bored so I decided to reactivate my “blog”. I had nothing to write about so my ADD kicked in and I decided to wrap my new Japanese console with a DeadSpace 2 vinyl skin–bad idea as it took forever and when it came to closing off the gaps i got lazy and just cut it lol. Either way that’s all I got, this is meant to be a place for me to screw around and keep sharp with my Photoshop. Don’t get too comfortable as this might die in a few months do to my sheer laziness or I get retarded busy and would rather just play games.

So far I only have 4 Japanese games but will get to playing them next week because most of them are stacks. The only two that  I’m stoked to play are Phantom Breaker, which I purchased prematurely and now those fucks are porting an English NTSC version grrrr, and Espgaluda II Black Label (Region Free).

List of new NTSC-J acquisitions

  • 50 Cent BOTS (Jap)
  • Bioshock (Jap)
  • Bioshock: 2 (Jap)
  • Bioshock: 2 (Kor)
  • Bully: Scholarship Edition (Jap)
  • Espgaluda: II Black Label (RF)
