Caution: If you spill the content of this cup on yourself you are an idiot.

I just found an article online this morning that for some reason surprised me. The article is about a guy that bought a used video game, Dragon Age: Origin, thinking that he'd get the dlc mentioned on the back.

The idiot did not read the fine print that's included in the section that talks about the dlc. The fine print says: "One-time use code available with full retail purchase. Expires April 30, 2010."

To me and anyone who has a functioning brain would understand that to mean exactly what it means. Buy the the full retail game to get that before 4/30/2010, that is. The only other option would be to download it from the market place of whatever console the individual owns.

The part of this whole situation that makes the person, James Collins, an idiot is that he got pissed of at GameStop and sued them. The reason for the lawsuit is that GameStop allegedly has deceptive policies regarding the sale of used games.

The way that I see it there was no standing for the law suit.

Quick he's onto you, lie harder.

Oh, wait I didn't just use say that in the title did I? Ah, crap...I did. I find it absolutely hilarious that some people think that they can get away with lying. Ok, maybe not lie exactly but just using something as a convenient excuse. What brings me to say this is that a coworker claims to be having a problem with her foot and takes a leave of absence for what will amount to about a month and a half. Medical reasons supposedly. I seriously believe that she's just using her "foot hurting" as an excuse for pretty much having an uninterrupted time to the Gears of War 3 beta. You probably should know that this individual is a gamer, an avid Gears of War fan, had early access to the beta, and said while laughing that if she didn't come in the week the early access started that she wouldn't be playing the beta.

What am I saying? If it weren't clear before, I do believe that this individual is a friggin' liar. Oh well some people are just that sad.

Sneaky monkey...err...I mean dog

I swear that animals can be sneaky. What brings me to say this is that I was was outside smoking and heard a rustling, turns out it was a stray dog. I, being the gullible sucker I am, decided to call it over to pet it. I did so for a couple of minutes, tentatively at first of course.

Figuring that it must be hungry went to the car where I still had a loaf of bread. Well, the dog didn't get any food because the car was locked and I didn't feel like going inside. However, what did happen was that I got a bit of a surprise in the form of a second dog sneaking up on me.

Overall, they seemed like fairly sweet dogs but the second one was a little over eager for my liking. Meaning that I believe that it wanted to think that I had food in my hands. That didn't please me in the least. I didn't give the second dog all that much attention other than to try to keep an eye on where it was as much as possible.

I feel snookered.

Pretty Bird, Pretty Bird

I just recently bought a couple of birds, diamond doves to be exact. So far things are going well. I'm enjoying having the birds.

Finally...

Sony recently did a redesign of the Playstation 3. With the redesign they also sliced the price by about $100 dollars. I think that it looks decent enough with it's matte black and gray paneling. However, I prefer the  shiny black exterior. I haven't heard if it handles any differently but I imagine that the internal components are essentially the same. Well, mostly anyway I've seen the new PS3 at a nearby Wal-Mart with a 120 gig hard drive and haven't been able as of yet to determine if that's standard. In response Microsoft has dropped the price on all of it's different versions of the 360. 

In related news Sony is releasing a new version of the PSP in a couple months, October 1st to be exact. It looks pretty cool. Instead of having the screen, d-pad and all the other buttons all on the front of the device the PSP Go's screen slides up to reveal the thumb stick and the buttons. One problem that I've read about is that the screen is smaller. Another problem that may should have been addressed is the relatively low battery life. Will it be worth the $249 price tag? I personally don't think so.

Not what I thought

I just bought a home theater system today. I don't really think I'm as impressed with it as I thought I would be, yet. If I could go back and do it all over again I might refrain from buying it. Don't get me wrong it sounds fine but I'm just not sure that it's been worth the hassle.

Casserole in a corn tortilla

I had a couple of burritos today that were made by a company that mainly potato salads and other side dishes. They didn't taste bad really but didn't really taste like burritos. They tasted more like a casserole.

Blah

So, yeah I've been seriously slacking off when it comes to blogging. The reasons are that I'm busy with work and my gaming schedule kind of distract me from actually posting anything. There have been so many things that I've come across that I've come across that I've thought that would make a great post. I, however, just not for whatever reason allowed myself the time to post my thoughts.

One of the things that I overheard a few months ago that I thought was a little funny was when I  was in the electronics section of a nearby Wal-Mart. What I over heard was a man was ranting on against Sony and Microsoft. He was basically saying that neither of them had a current gen console that were backward compatible. Technically both of those companies do have current gen consoles that backwards compatible. However, there are only a few models of the PS3 that are backwards compatible. The Xbox 360 only has limited backwards compatability. The truely funny thing is that this man said that since "Microshaft" lied about backwards compatability he switched to a Mac. He was the one who said Microshaft not me

Why, Microsoft? Why?

I'm really shocked by Microsoft. I guess I really shouldn't be though. Whenever I try to connect my Xbox 360 to my laptop via Windows Media Center I keep getting an error message saying that the 360 couldn't connect. Argh!!

However, right now I'm playing music on my Playstation 3. Why am I even mentioning this? With my PS3 I scanned for media servers and oh, wait it found my laptop. Go figure a Microsoft product can't connect to one of their own pieces of software. Don't get me wrong I'm not one of those snotty people that refuses to use a computer that has any flavour of Windows. I just don't always appreciate Microsoft's crap sometimes. There has to be a fix for this solution but it's still frustrating.
