Lali ho. A few things I need sorting out. Since they're wildly different I'm saving time by creating one topic here in 'general' instead of individual ones in the corresponding sections, or even worse another short novel of a blog. Hope that's ok, if not then move this wherever it goes. 1) I intend to purchase a PS3 on Friday, to finally put an end to my old man's ability to piss me off by hogging the tv and thus leaving me unable to play Demon's Souls or Valkyria Chronicles. However, I need to know a few things first before I commit to such a purchase. - Can I still watch Blu Rays if my TV isn't high def? - Which model is PS2 compatable? 60GB IIRC. - How much should I be looking to pay for a cheap model? Nothing flash, just anything that'll play PS3 games and Blu Rays. 2) Anyone who works in Customs either in the UK or Pakistan, GO FUCK YOURSELF WITH A HAMMER. Bastards are refusing to allow my new sword into the country, even though it's a decorative item. You've got more chance of cutting yourself on the box than on the blade. But regretably we're all guilty until proven innocent these days and as such I'm not allowed it in case I'm a terrorist. I'm obviously not a terrorist, but shit like this makes me want to become one to put these people in their place once and for all. Wankers. I already have like, four other swords. All ordered internationally with no fucking problem. But no, this one might be the dangerous one. Yeah, 'course...never mind the Masamune I have in storage... 3) Is it true that Sonic 4 only has 4 zones? That's kinda piss poor. Even the original had 6. 4) Traded Ninja Gaiden 2, Tom Clancy's HAWX and Monster Hunter Freedom Unite for Lost Oddysey, Star Ocean Last Hope and FIFA. Good deal or not? 5) How do I get past mission 16 on Ace Combat X2? It's pissing me off. The one where I have to stop the ship by firing on nearby ships. I always without fail get shot down by the last ship, it has some sort of uber-SAM. Help please. 6) The games consoles connected to the plasma tv downstairs all exibit an odd problem, patches of static on the screen. Like corrupted data or something. It occasionally happens with the Freeview box but it's most noticable on the PS3 and 360 menu screens. What is it and how do I sort it out? That's about it for now. Just a reminder for Customs staff to go fist themselves with a cactus covered gauntlet, and to see if the guy I bought my sword off will give me my money back since he should have looked into international shipping problems before he put it up for sale, really. He's anOK guy though, very helpful, so I shouldn't think I'll have any trouble. Toodles. A severely fucked off Blaze.
