Developers claim PS3 Doesn't have 1080p hardware scaling

Yes, developers are really stupid, but the latest SDK adds partial support for it. Didn't Sony bring this part up a year ago? Yeah it was in the tech specs. Do the developers create this shit up for attention? They probably do. Wouldn't want to end up like me with no comments. They fear what I been thru. A eternity without many comments. That would mean blog death. Of course the create crazy stuff like this. So the preimere PS3 message board outside IGN had a thread on this touchy topic. And of course PS2 games won't be upscaled to 1080p because those games would look horribly jaggy.

Improved PS2 experience & my 2nd X360

Since I am comfortable with version 1.3 after figuring out there is no need to upgrade. It shall be noted that Sony fixed the picture quality of PS2 games on PS3 in the newest firmware update (v1.5) so it looks exactly like a PS2 game running on PS2. Minor updates are you can also delete any backup file and ability to swap credit cards or debit cards before downloading PS games onto HDD. I use PS2 to play Final Fantasy 12 because memory cards aren't compatible with PS3 w/o buying expensive accessory/converter. Remember I'm jobless.

Also I had a grounding issue with teh Xbox 360 this week and had to use my warrentee to get a new one /w only $35 spent. It happened the last time my cousin david came over to play Need for Speed Most Wanted on Xbox 360, and I powered it without video cable. It started powering off every 5 minutes so my new one works fine.

My job status is a little rough, I called all three Game Stops in my area asking for employment positions.....no currently. I sorta want to work at a game store so i can add a few more games to my collection. Looking at Rogue Galaxy and Ar tonelico (unless it is really a 6.8 out of 10). I logged onto Minnesota Job Bank website and summited three positions at Keystone Computer Solutions to my job coach. I haven't checked Hi Score (game store) in Stillwater yet.

NFL in London next season: Teams unconfirmed

According to NFL.com, two regular season games will appear at Wembley Stadium, London, UK. The NFL is working closely with the London city consul to make it a satisfying experience for Americans in UK at the time or curious Londoners. The future of NFL Europa is looking good for German sports so maybe that success can come to London for two games. It will be broadcasted in UK and Fox Sports Net.

The NFL staged its first regular-season game outside of the United States in 2005 when 103,467 people saw the Arizona Cardinals play the San Francisco 49ers in Mexico City on October 2 -- the largest crowd for a regular-season game in NFL history.

Maybe if this works, football can have world-wide fanfare so it's not only North America that plays it.

Illegally obtained Panzer Dragoon Saga!

Panzer Dragoon Saga on CD at my house! The best RPG no body has played. (Got 9.2 at Gamespot)

Intro FMV

Dragon Force is the best Working Designs game for Saturn. Of course it's forgotten. (Got 9.1 at Gamespot)

Magic Knight Rayearth is a horrible game, but for some reason it got #1 at Gamerankings.com. The intro FMV is horribly girly. (Got 5.5 at Gamespot)

Guardian Heroes is a RPG by Treasure who has fame of Raliant Silvergun (Saturn) and Bangai-O (Dreamcast) (got 9.0 at Gamespot)

I was inside the Metrodome! | look at the awesome "Viking's Stadium"

I rode to the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome to look at a home appliance convention dealing with bathtubs, chairs, shutters, new advances in gutter technology, and it was the first time I've been on the field of the Metrodome and 2nd time I've ever been to the Metrodome. Viking's new stadium (seats 68,000) in Blaine, MN will be larger (seats 64,000) than the Metrodome despite claims it will seat 4,000 less. I thought it was boring. Rumors are it will be priced triple ($675 million) the TCF Bank Stadium (future home of the MN Gophers, seats 50,200) set to open on September 12, 2009. I could sit in any seat I wanted too yesterday! We have a chocolate lab that gets weird on us if we keep it in the bedroom because it is sensitive to scowling. Though i never hear the end of my mom's plead not to leave it in the bedroom. I am still playing Final Fantasy 12 because I am definitely not into games as much. Videogames don't get you girlfriends. Circuit City fired me because that store is going thru some tough times, and it wasn't my attendance or behavior. I called David, Randy, Bob and nobody answers their phone! I want to do something outta the house, but they may not come due to the blizzard last night.

TCF Bank Stadium

Viking's Stadium (better than ¾ the world's soccer stadiums!)

If I were to buy a videogame, the most excellent choice may be Castlevania Portrait of Ruin. C:OoR got a 9.0 out of 10 at IGN and a 8.0 at GameSpot. I don't know if I'll get the Level 5 RPG, Rogue Galaxy coming out at the end of January. Save that for February because hopefully I'll get $160 added to my account so affording it not an issue.

Finally, I bought Rainbow Six Vegas for $40 eight days ago. It's probably a lot of fun like the online review said.

What's the point of a $2,000,000,000 Bomber!

If the USAF is not going to use the B2 Spirit in actual wars when why the heck did the USAF order 21 of them? If the F-117A or B52 don't do the job, which will never happen. Come on, Gov, what's the point in putting 1.5 - 2 Billion down the drain times 21! I still don't understand our government's thinking. Oh, wait! I get it...

Okay, it's none of my business.

Sure looks futuristic though.


So I'm a little slow on these aircraft....actually I've been asking my cousin, David, on the phone if he's gonna be working on a V22 because he works on Blackhawk helicopters in Japan (he's on leave now) and he said no (I thought that before since these things look beyond his comprehension to maintain correctly).

Ouch. I don't expect this aircraft/UFO to be as expensive as teh F-22 Raptor (which i thought was most expensive aircraft for a while before i saw a B2 while seeing a model at Circuit City)
