Now that the room that used to be my office is free again I have several of my old game systems set back up. The problem is that over the 12 or so years of that room being occupied in one way or another various parts of them have deteriorated. My PS3 has one sort of working controller now. I pieced it together from three other ones that just won’t work outright. The damn thing is designed terribly. You have to have a working battery in one for it to work. Plugging it in doesn’t work except to charge the battery. It should work if you plug it in regardless. Getting batteries for them isn’t impossible, but they are of questionable quality. Still I was able to get it working enough to get by until I can do something about that situation. Basically all the rechargeable batteries in everything except the Nintendo stuff have failed. Even the ones I made an effort to charge from time to time. I do have a shitty wired controller for the XBOX 360 though so that’s something. Also I’m pretty sure its cable has the pass through charging so it can just be wired and still work. The problem with the 360 is that the fan has never worked right. Since the system is functionally just a Windows computer I should be able to replace the fan with a better one. The problem is that youtube is such a shithole now that I can’t find anyone who knows what can or can’t be done. the results are choked by algorithmic garbage. I’m certain that I should be able to buy a replacement fan that works properly, or something. I just need some guidance. My Wii and WiiU are both fine. I fixed the WiiU gamepad when I broke it easily a long time ago and the battery seems fine. The systems themselves have always worked as intended.
I put some video files on my PS3 a long time ago but now I can’t remember how you do that. I think you have to format a flash drive in a particular way, but I’ve completely forgotten how. My guess is the same goes for the 360, but I absolutely cant remember how you play stored media on it. I don’t really need to use them for that now anyway. I could use the television itself now. I just kind of want to do it.
I finally played a bit of Transformers Devastation on the PS3, which I’ve had since they released the titan class Devastator toy. There’s a little advert for it in the case. I bought the game used after it was already out for a while. Played to about one checkpoint and then set it aside while my life fell apart for a decade. Better late than never, I guess.
I’m not even sure where my games are for any of the systems mentioned. I just ran across a little pile that was right where I left it years ago when I sat it down and never got to come back. Minecraft, Dragon’s Crown, and Transformers on PS3, Fable Anniversary for Xbox, and FE: Radiant Dawn’s case for the Wii/WiiU (the game was in the system since I actually had it in my bedroom before.
I banned myself from playing Splatoon 3 until the splatfests because I ranked up so high that I get mad because I never win now. Until the season changes it’s not Splatoon for me. My 2 hours of aloted game time goes to something else now.
Gaming info on the internet has turned to absolute diarrhea in the decade I’ve been partially removed from it. Trying to look back into info for these old games is awful. It’s just random schmucks making videos that never get to the fucking point. Or retrospectives where they judge aspects of the games against whatever the moral outrage of that week was. There functionally is no gaming journalism as I knew it as a teenager now. It’s just attention whoring with games tacked on as a way to get you in the door. It fucking suuuuuuuuuuuuuucks. I feel like a time traveler that fell back into the worst possible timeline sans open warfare in the streets.
There are certainly worse problems to have. I’ve been having them for over ten years, so I get that tis isn’t the most important thing in the world. it’s just that I managed to live through all the bullshit and now I want to have my reward for being a good boy. Whatever. I want to mod one of my old systems to play old ROMS and just steal all of them. I’ve more than paid for all the old games I like so now all those companies can suck my aged nuts. If I want to play NES Batman on my XBOX 360 by god I’m gonna find a way to do it without paying anyone. Maybe if they hadn’t leaned into DLC and games as a service I’d have some sympathy left, but the well is muddy at best. I own those fucking games. I have them in the basement. If I want to play them on something else I’m gonna find a way… Assuming I can overcome my severe lack of intelligence. Barring that though! Oh ho ho! I’m sailing the high seas, fucko!

But that as may be. Really I’m just laying on the floor and flailing my limbs around because I can’t have what I want right now. Story of my life. Anyway, if you want the comic to keep existing there’s links above the blog, as always. It would be appreciated. Apart from that I hope you’re getting through all these historic fucking events okay. I know a lot of people aren’t. O_O Hopefully I’ll see you back here on Friday in good spirits. until then, verb the adjective noun.

This Post Will Confuse People.

The blog under the blog has always accidentally caught people by surprise. It’s original purpose was to present information on the homepage that wasn’t time sensitive. The rise of social media kind of made it superfluous, but now social media is falling away & the secondary blog seems like It might actually become useful again since Twitter isn’t the powerhouse it was half a decade ago. At this moment I’m just making this post so that the big image posts won’t appear on every comic page. It’ll just be easy to load text. Job done. Now I can go about doing some other stuff I need to do.
