Sorry for the lateness of this post. Ryan sent me the comic, and then I fell into a black hole while looking for a new place to live. The black hole might have been a good option. It’s a low cost move, since gravity does all the work, and those things are spacious.

This ends our current story arc. We hope you enjoyed it. The robot and cat will both certainly be around in the future. Perhaps we’ll see a team-up battle! This is the kind of stuff that gets me excited.

We are approaching the end of this story arc. Thanks for staying with us. We take our robot kitten battles very seriously.

Going back to the games, I tried plugging in my PS3 last night, and it’s still dead. The self fixing methods out there look complicated and unreliable, and paying to have it fixed is not at all cost effective, given that a new system is in the $250 region.

I feel the wind blowing more and more to the next gen. I can always replace my PS3 later, when they are dirt cheap.

Not having a PS3 to compete with, my Wii U has been upgraded to chief Netflix machine. The Wii U’s tablet controller has also earned a place close at hand, with its cradle plugged in directly behind the couch. I tried to put it there before, when the Wii U was more of a Zelda/Assassin’s Creed 3 machine, but was rebuffed. The Wii U was declared “useless” and “pointless”.

Oh how the tables have turned.

I’ve also found more time to play Pokemon X since the demise of my PS3. A large segment of my gaming collection is suddenly unavailable, and I just finished Zelda Wind Waker HD, so Pokemon is now sole occupant of the top of my “To Play” list. I am quickly approaching the Pokemon League, and the end of the game proper.

It certainly took long enough. I’ll barely have enough time to breath before Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby are released.

I was waiting to replace my PS3 before renewing my PS+ subscription, or at least wait a few weeks to see what free games are on the menu for next month. Except apparently the default setting for PS+ is auto renewal.

So now I have PS+ and no PlayStation. What to do? I could move on to a PS4. There is plenty to play, with Infamous Second Son, Destiny, and a copy Assassin’s Creed Black Flag that is already sitting on my shelf due to a Christmas present mistake. That’s plenty to justify the move to the next generation.

But there is a lot to do with the PS3 still. Tales of Symphonia Chronicles is on sale for next to nothing. I still have time to spend on Diablo 3, Skyrim, and a few other titles. And I have a massive list of PS+ free titles waiting on a server for me to download and play. Sure, I don’t have much interest in any of those titles, but they represent a possibility.

What do you guys think? PS4, or replacement PS3. Or Xbox One? Titanfall looks cool. And Dead Rising. But then my PS+ is wasted. That would be a shame.

My PS3 is dead, and I am devastated. It happened without warning. It happened without provocation. And I have very few ideas, except to sit here and wait for it to magically work again. It could happen.

Most likely the PS3 overheated due to dust buildup, old age, and the general warm temperatures in my apartment. It is odd though. Usually overheating occurs when performing some intense graphics processing for a game, but I have not used it for anything but Netflix in several weeks. Netflix is not the most greedy program in the world, and the PS3 should barely break a sweat running it.

So I cleaned out as much dust as possible, re-seated the hard drive, and will leave the entire system unplugged for a few hours while I pray. Maybe, just maybe, it will function again tonight.

If any of you readers have any advice on how to fix it, or whether you think I should even try, I am all ears. I understand that if a solder connection failed, fixing the issue will be extremely difficult. Perhaps it’s not worth the time. We shall see.
