Sunday Stuffs

The nice thing about a Sunday morning without a Grand Prix  race is that I do not have to throw the entire family into sin and disarray by coming up with an excuse to miss church.  Of course I am kidding; well partially.  There are some F1 circuits that I enjoy more than others, but today I do not have to worry about that all important decision.

Prayers for rain have been answered, well sort of answered.  Before yesterday, I am not sure when we last had rain, and while it did not rain much, every little bit helps to get some of the South GA forest fire smoke out of the air.  The Columbus, GA area is about 10 inches behind for the year.  Not very good.

You may have noticed (or maybe not) that I have been writing a lot more over the last 10 or so days.  There are a couple of reasons.  First, I have been feeling like crap of late, which has somehow given me a little more time to write.  Second, getting a PS3 (and the process of lead up to the purchase) has given me a whole host of things to discuss.  PS3 vs. Xbox 360, Blu-Ray vs. HD-DVD, PS3 games, and more.  Longtime readers probably appreciate game related ramblings more than my diatribes on the Braves, Falcons, and Bulldogs.

I plan to put together some more posts on my PS3 impressions, and my game purchases.  As a teaser, Formula One is a ton of fun; the Six Axis controls are interesting with the game.  I have not opened Resistance or Elder Scrolls; M-rated games have to be played after the kids go to be.  I hate that the controllers can only be charged while the PS3 is in use (i.e. while I am playing a game or watching a movie).  I am not sure what to make of PSX and PS2 up converting, and the same goes for DVD movies.

Happy Sunday!

  1. You got to check out some of the demos you can download for free, like the GT HD demo. If you like racing games, Motorstorm demo is there as well as Ridge Racer.

    I’m more interested in some of the upcoming non-sports games, like Lair, Warhawk, Heavenly Sword, Drake’s Fortune, Ratchet and Clank. I think most of these have trailers you can download and I’m looking forward to demos.

  2. wco81 – I have not checked out any of the demos, but I am sure I will get GT HD. I just hope that the next GT actually has more cars per race, and they take the AI off of rails (or pattern based AI for each lap). I could live without damage, but if the developers would please improve the above and I will be happy.

    I have seen some articles and pictures for each of the games you mentioned; not sure which ones will be for me. In the past I would just purchase at random, but for some reason the $59.99 price point for PS3 games does not sit well with me. It is just too damn much.
