So I just got an e-mail from GAME, bragging that they’re the best high street retailer or something. That’s great, and good for them. But, in celebration, they’re giving some savings! That’s cool!
UNFORTUNATELY… they’re on the two things I am least likely to buy in the future… a Nintendo Wii… sorry, I mean… a Nintendo PISS, because my Dad’s got one and I think they suck anyway… and a Nintendo DSi, which is a nice little handheld, but it’s at a ridiculous price, even with £10 off! It’s nearly as expensive as the Piss… and JUST AS expensive as an Xbox 360 Arcade bundle… and they are… more advanced?
Oh, notice how GAME are only offering deals for Nintendo consoles, too? My Favouritism Detector just exploded.
I’m sorry… but anyone that buys a DSi over a DS has been ripped off… because the only thing that’s new is the camera, and the nearly impossible-to-notice size difference. Also, people who upgrade from a DS to a DSi are monumental retards (unless they manage a good trade-in or sell their old DS for a fair amount).
No, I have nothing against Nintendo or anything. Their consoles are good, and they make good games, and have really good mascots… but the only problem is… everyone else sucks at making games for their consoles, apart from (usually) SEGA. I don’t know of ANY third-party game I’d ever want to play on the Piss or the DS. I just think they’re pushing their luck a bit too much, what, with their prices and the development of a new handheld that is nearly technically the same as the old one, but costs a lot more. Oh, and the fact that the Piss USED to cost less than the Xbox 360 or PS3… but now it costs more. Good marketing tactics I suppose. Evil, but extremely good.
Anyhoo… what else… oh yeah, Amazon Prime sucks. I signed up for the free trial of Amazon Prime, which gives you unlimited one day delivery for a month. That’s great. So, I ordered one of those Xbox 360 Quick Charge Kits, because I badly need it. Why? Well… I probably won’t see my Play & Charge kit for another few months, as I think it’s at Ped’s, and I can’t find either of the original battery packs for my controllers anywhere, so I can’t use the nine rechargable batteries I have in reserve… typical. I asked for one day delivery, and it confirmed and everything.
TODAY, two days after ordering, it’s just been dispatched. Now, sure, it’s not such a big deal, because I can wait a few days for a charge kit, I have other things that I can do… but I thought that ONE day delivery, would take ONE day to pack and deliver to my house. Not THREE. Can’t believe people would pay £50 odd a year just to get their items delivered about one or two days faster than Super Saver delivery…
Right… I THINK that’s all, apart from ULSG! If anyone on my Skype is ever bored or not doing anything or whatever, it’d be great if you could help me for a couple minutes, just to see if I can actually make a multiplayer game with Multimedia Fusion 2 or not. I’ve made a little test app which can start a server or connect to one, and you can see other players ships and fire lasers and shoot down enemy ships. It probably doesn’t sound exciting to you, but to me, it’s really important, cuz if this works, then I CAN get started with a real ULSG online game mode of some sort. One of my college mates have already tried connecting to me, but it didn’t work. I can’t really give up just because ONE person can’t connect, though, I need at least a few to not be able to connect to fully render it "not working".
Anyway, if you want to help, just leave a comment, and I’ll meet you on Skype when I notice it. I don’t go on that often anymore, I don’t really see the point.
Rightiho, I’m off. I’ll see yas soon!
Okay, disregard that plea for help… I managed to find a really good public server. MASSIVE kudos to KlikFarm.
