        I've struggled with those fiddly SMD caps for so fucking long that I'm on the verge of trashing both my PS3s :(

        Are not most such things heat induced chip failures or BGA failures?

        Surface mount soldering is more of a technique or tools issue if hands are steady enough. Stick the component down with a bit of flux (or even glue), hold it down with something and tack one joint down. Reposition and do the second+. If you are using a fat tip iron swap, if using hot air by cut a hole out of some tin foil to stop splash damage.

        I've been thinking it may be a BGA failure as well. I'm short on capacitors and don't have a multimeter at the moment so I'm more or less throwing myself at the box again and again hoping to stick sooner or later

      Does shadow of the Colossus get better after the 5th boss or is that all the game's got?

        It doesn't have (much) psychological/horror stuff TBH, just the monster designs and environments that seem out of place with the rest of the world. It is quite fun to go through on a weekend tho, the platforming is decent and the gravity gimmick is done well. combat is hit and miss tho.

        Do you think a laptop could _completely_ replace it?

        Only if it's one of those laptops that can be folded into a tablet, but even then, I like how snappy Android is. In my experience, Windows always seems to slow down as time goes on, at least on weaker hardware.

        Their parents had come round and all was thought to be OK, however it seems they had forgot to close a window and through that came playing a video of themselves...
