Football Manager 2012 Review: PC vs. Handheld

CivilD

6 years ago

I played the last two iOS entries to death and have just embarked on a new 2012 career. For me. Sticking the game engine on Commentary Only and cranking it up to Very Fast speed gives the maximum enjoyment and makes it feel like playing CM Italia on the Amiga again.

Hopefully I can recreate the glorious quintuple with Annan Athletic within 15 seasons again...

Super Mario 3D Land is fastest selling portable Mario ever

CivilD

6 years ago

@PinktotheLast it is better than Galaxy 2 in terms of sheer fun. I felt compelled to play it constantly almost like a great book you can't put down. I can see myself playing it long after I've collected every star coin (already done) and gold flag.

Nintendo 3DS black screen error revealed

CivilD

7 years ago

I got this yesterday: http://i.imgur.com/UU2pT.jpg I held the power button in as it said, after the screens went off it took another 10-15 seconds for the lights to go off.

I had it on since I got it (Thursday afternoon) so i guessed it was because it had been on constantly since then. Hasn't happened since.

Edit: This was while playing Pilotwings.

My guess for the media type is some sort of variation on their Memory Stick Pro Duo media, i.e. flash memory on a proprietary interface.

PS3 Slim loses Linux, gains HDTV linkage

CivilD

9 years ago

I'm actually quite surprised that they've removed Linux support. I think it's pretty much a given that Linux support out of the box is the single largest reason why the PS3 hasn't been 'hacked', and piracy is currently non-existent. Removing it from the new model is simply enticing Linux geeks into hacking it to get Linux running on it, and as a side-effect opening up avenues for piracy.

The Picross screen actually works very well. When you touch a square the numbers for that row and column pop up at the side and the top, so it's not like you're going back and forth to check the numbers all the time.

"This PSP-PS3 remote thing SOUNDS good, but what exactly will you be able to do with it? Adjust the backgrounds on your PS3 from the comfort of the bus? Re-shuffle your pictures and music? If that's all it is, well, wate of time IMHO.

Anyone care to explain this concept in more detail? "

With remote play I can watch movies within range of my PS3, i.e. in bed. I don't know if this would work over wifi, but if it does, I should be able to watch any movie stored on my PS3 as long as I can find a wifi spot.

I really hope someone with an iota of clout at Sony reads this article and takes some action. Seeing all the slip-ups in the one place really brings it home how silly Sony looks after a year of mistakes, with the hip-hop-dad blog being the cherry on the cake. A cake laced with stupid.
