Ok, so, for starters, let me apologize for the unexpectedly organized TL;DR. The two of us had planned on discussing a different topic together, but then Martina got sick, so we had to figure out a topic that I (Simon here) could do by myself. It’s not the most popular topic according to your thumbs up, but it’s one that I can answer on my own, and it also counterbalances all of the girliness of last week’s topic.

Anyhow, VIDEO GAMES! I’m not sure how many of you know how much of a gamer I am. We’ve got a Nintendo Wii, a DS for each of us, Playstation 3, and a Vita. We don’t play much Nintendo, unless we’ve got guests over. Then it’s Mario Party and Mario Kart non-stop! Otherwise, I’m mostly playing single player Playstation games. Still working my way through Skyrim, but I only get a chance maybe once every two weeks to put in a few hours of level grinding. If not that, I’m playing Gravity Rush on the Vita for those shorter free moments I’ve got. That’s a pretty cool game, FYI, if you haven’t played it.

Enough about my gaming habits: fact is, I’m a bit disappointed with gaming culture here in Korea. Not that it’s bad or inadequate or sucky or anything like that. Gaming culture is insanely strong here…it’s just not MY kind of gaming culture. Playstation games come in slim picking at the regular super markets. I still haven’t seen any Prototype 2 here. MAN! I really want to play that game. I could just go to Yongsan if I wanted to and buy it there, but – problem is – I hate dealing with haggling for prices. If the game is brand spanking new, getting an English copy of it could run you well over $100. I AIN’T THAT DEDICATED TO THE GAME! Otherwise, the different booths at Yongsan will all offer you different prices for the game you want to buy.

Also, big problem just happened here this month for Playstation gamers: you can’t get games via the Playstation network anymore. You can read more about it here if you want to know the details. All you need to know is that it sucks monkey balls! I’ve been trying to download the Metal Gear Solid set for the Vita, but I can’t :(

As for Xbox games, I don’t know. Never been a fan of Xbox. Sorry guise! For some reason, I only think of Xbox as first person shooters and sports games, neither of which I’m interested in. All I know is that, at the supermarkets, you can barely get any Xbox games, either.

Anyhow, I’m starting to think that Pulsa Bang gaming is a better idea, though. I mean, spend a few bucks a day to play someone else’s PS3 and a bunch of their games on a nice TV. Why not? If a PS3 is a couple hundred bucks, and every game is there waiting for you. I think it’s a good deal. It’s just…not as convenient as sitting in the living room in your underwear, of course.

So, yeah! that’s it for this week. And, lastly, Martina’s not doing too well right now with her cold, so we’re not going to be WANKing tomorrow. Sorry guise! Martina needs her rest. Hopefully she’ll have enough energy for this week’s Music Monday!
