I spent about 4 or 5 hours last night in KSP carefully nudging together the drive and tank sections of my interplanetary ship only to discover that I had one of the docking ports on the drive section slightly off center. These two sections each have three tanks arranged radially around a fourth center tank, and there’s a docking port on each tank, so I have to line up all 4 ports when docking. While the three radial ports are connected, the fourth in the center isn’t. I’m trying to decide if it’s worth it to launch a new drive section and do the whole process over again.

This is the kind of free game I like as a PSN Plus member. It's not something I would buy, but it's fun to play one time.

Downloaded 2 more free games on PSN and both seem really fun after 30 minute play with each. In one, you control an army of zombies. The other is a big fight with great mood and setting to it... I'm really impressed with the presentation.

Gamestop is going to stop selling PS2 games come June 1st.

That was a heck of a run by the PS2, even in the resale market.

13 years, 155 million systems sold worldwide. Not bad. Only the Atari 2600 (1977-1992) had a longer run, but couldn't touch the PS2 in sales.

To compare to other systems:

PS1: 5 years, 102.49m
Wii: 6.5 years, 99.84m
360: 7.5 years, 77.2m
PS3: 6.5 years, 77m
NES: 10 years, 69.91m
SNES: 8 years, 49.1m
N64: 7 years, 32.93m
2600: 14.5 years, 30m
Intellivision: 5 years, 3m
Nintendo TV Game: 3 years, 3m*
3DO: 3 years, 2m
Odyssey²: 5.5 years, 2m
ColecoVision: 2 years, 2m

* - linking this because I never heard of the system but it looks like it did well compared to other systems.

Whoa, LucasFilm announced that EA will be making the next (and future) Star Wars games. DICE, Battlefield series developer, is already at work on a Star Wars game using the Frostbite 3 engine (BF4's engine). There are two studios working on games, DICE is one, and there is another prominent studio working as well.

Very cool.

Visceral Games, maker of Dead Space, is the other studio (Bioware already was in, making that MMORPG that no one plays lol ):

When I was a kid, my parents bought me this game:

I am pretty sure I eventually took it outside and smashed it to pieces. What a stupid, stupid annoying game

I was talking about KOTOR, I was responding about the Star Wars game. Neverwinter Nights would be my favorite though, one of my favorite games ever.

I used to play a BF1942 mod called Galactic Conquest, which was set in the Star Wars universe. They had a couple of run ins with LucasArts legal, so they had to be very careful about what they released and so on. Eventually Battlefront came out, and they stopped development on the mod. Very similar to Desert Combat's team being scooped up to make BF2.

I need to re-install that mod and give it a try again.

Ha, I remember my buddy was sleeeping over one night and we rented that game to play. It sucked so bad. I don't think I ever played it again. Worst game ever.

I decided to play Far Cry 2 that I got from PSN like a year ago. So far so good. I got my mouse/kb set up really well already. :P
