    LOL @ ‘Spanktopia’

  3. Roca.:

    I’m interested in 3 out those 5 games..but besides PAYDAY I don’t think none of those games are worth $15. Seems like the days of $9.99 for DL games are gone.

    PSN+ members are getting a good deal tho.

  4. phranctoast:

    They all look like games I wouldn’t mind if they were free with PS+.

    Payday looks good though. Thats the L4D robbing banks game. cool.

  5. jojo29:

    Finally the best sf ever made is being redone in hd ;)

  6. twilight:

    The only game I may be interested in is BloodRayne. I purchased Deadliest Warriors Legends on Psn. This is an extremely short but fun game.

  7. dans303:


    I just played the demo for the new Rugby game. Still sucks. lol

  8. Roca.:

    LMAO @ dans303

    Xbots get excited for anything now days ;)


    I’m interested in SF3, BloodyRayne and PAYDAY..but I’ll most likely get Payday (if it’s as good as everyone’s saying) and skip the other two games.

    SF3 – I’m not supporing Capcom anymore and I’m sure the game will be half assed and have an “always-on” requirement.

    BloodyRayne – I don’t think it’s worth $15

  9. navysteve:

    @ dans
    Yeah I played it I’m so disappointed but there is still Jonah Lomu rugby challenge to look fwd to.

    Don’t you like that baseball game? That’s not even a real sport

  10. Roca.:

    “Don’t you like that baseball game? That’s not even a real sport”

    Only an idiot like you would say that.. typical Xbot response.

    I bet those baseball games have a much higher review score than your shitty rugby crap. I bet Jonah Lomu rugby challenge will suck just as bad lmao

  11. phranctoast:

    Baseball rules.
    Except last weekend.

  12. CAD:

    I’ll take Rugby over Baseball anyday. I agree Baseball Isn’t even a real sport even though it is. Whenever I get free tickets to the Baseball game I usually show up around 6th Inning. I played Rugby during High School and I loved it. Sometimes I wonder how the hell I got involved with those freaks but I enjoyed the sport very much. I want to get that Rugby game as well. For jokes I was the Hooker.

  13. CAD:

    @ Mike

    So how come there has never been a Article around XBLA Spring/Summer of Arcade. It’s basically the same thing and it’s been going on for years?

  14. navysteve:

    @roca they probably will but then such a simple sport is easy to replicate in a computer game. Now rugby is a technical game with many facets to it, making it hard to replicate, but I’m hoping for a good one soon.

    And how does my preference of sport relate to which console I own? Do you honestly have nothing outside of gaming?

    @ cad world cup starts soon mate you should watch it England to become champions once more! I can’t remember a summer of arcade article but there could have been one, this site is heavily biased dowager Sony but I’ve excepted that it’s still always worth a look once a day

  15. Roca.:

    Baseball is anything but simple…not everyone can throw a ball at 90-100mph. Not everyone has the hand & eye coordination (not to mention the strength) to hit a small ball coming at you at a high speed while changing direction.

    Not everyone can make the ball move from corner to corner or make it drop on you as soon as you swing the bat.

    Not everyone has the ability to track and catch a small ball running for speed and diving for it.

    and just so you know there isn’t a more technical and strategic sport than Football

    Toronto sucks so your opinion is pretty much worthless.

  16. navysteve:

    Do you mean American football? If so when I thought you couldn’t get anymore stupid you go and prove me wrong!

  17. Roca.:

    “Do you mean American football?”

    I mean Football – NFL

    And yes it’s the most technical sports. If you knew anything about you would know that every play/move it’s like playing a chess game.

    I prove you wrong all the time but in this case you prove yourself wrong (as usual)

  18. twilight:

    This is a pro Ps3 site.
    I’ll get it when its discounted or goes on sale.

  19. jojo29:

    Cut the bullshit, its only “pro” ps3 in your ms cummed filled eyes because all the xbitches got booted out from here for being dumbfuks (kev, etc..)and or bowed out because they were called out on all the bullshit they were spewing,(happyhockum) and couldnt hang when people with actual debating ability brought real researched comments with actual data…not 8yearthe old dumbass comments like the ones you post cad….

    Xbla summer deals were brought up on this site…when ms first introduced them… brings out something new…so of course they are going to report it….its something new…

    Its not this website nor our fault Sony is the one making major moves aka making the headlines, while ms sits in its little corner collecting all the stupid fucks that subscription money that are dumb enough to pay for it….and the same exact sequels to the same 4 franchises every year…blame yourselves and ms….not sony….again at least sonyb is bringing new, AAA caliber ips out in spades…

  20. oldschool1987:

    @ CAD:

    It’s not our fault that the rest of the Xbot crowd had the common sense not to say how great the 360 is after this years E3, you’re the only one stupid enough to still do it…

  21. Godless:

    “This is a pro Ps3 site”


    As cad has said live has always got these deals on

    The current deal kicks of with one of the best games I have ever played “From Dust” A kind of cross between Populous, lemings and wetrix. .A very cool game

    The full game line up on lives current offering is way better than what’s on offer from PSN, dust alone is worth more than all 5 of the PSN games. which BTW are a complete rip off.

  22. Roca.:

    Dust is not better than SF3rdStrike – that was an instant classic.. In fact, if any of these games have a metascore higher than 80 than they will be better than Dust.

    Just a Couple of weeks ago PSN was offering a some high quality titles for just $4. Pac-Man Championship Edition DX (91) & PixelJunk Shooter 2 (82) were part of them and both of them have higher review than Dust.

    Anyways, it’s to see you all back at what you do best – whine.

    No one here was whining on the XBL summer sales article.

  23. twilight:

    You are correct. Xbox live has a massive online library of arcade games and full retail games that can be purchased compared to Psn. All high definition digital content is in 1080p on Xbox live compared to 720p on Psn.

  24. Godless:

    Yes Roca. . You’re right

    SF3 look stunning. . With a living environment, always beautiful always changing depending on what’s going on elsewhere, and which often throws in some awesome graphical jaw dropping moments.

    Game physics. ., pouring lava around and watching it melt over the land then set into new rock formations, sand being washed around by water, rivers carving a path over the rocks & sand, always dynamic. plants spreading into areas with the right mix of water and sand,

    Puzzles not always easy to solve often requiring some lateral thought processing.

    Yes. . SF3 is utterly unique, taking elements of different games & genera and turning them into something truly different from anything else you have ever seen before.

    Roca. .From dust is so much more than SF3 that it is laughable that you even mention them in the same sentence. .it’s an old-school button mashing, shit looking, fighter. .kind of thing that really does belong in the 80s.

    Roca, there’s a difference between pointing something out & whining. .

  25. Roca.:

    SF4 is not from the 80s you idiot (as usual, you’re shot on facts)…in fact, Populous is from the 80s lmao. You owned yourself there.

    SF3 is a instant classic among gamers that are into the genre and it’s touted as the best fighting game ever.

    Why don’t you stop whining and accept From Dust is just another 80 reviewed DL game. Even Flower has a higher score and more awards as well (and it difinitely deserves it). I bet Journey will get a much higher score (and it already has more awards)

    I bet few months from now no one will be playing From Dust while SF3 will be played for years.

  26. twilight:

    My favorite fighting games are Mortal Kombat and Dead Or Alive with an honorable mention going to Tekken.

  27. Godless:


    I was playing Street fighter when it was first released in 1987, and it has barley changed in all that time. It still looks as shit now as it ever did.

    Roca, I’m going to assume you have never played, (probably never seen Populous) or you’d know that Dust uses the idea of manipulating the land, but adds a whole now dynamic level to it.

    Not worth trying to argue this with you

  28. Godless:

    If you wern’t such a narrow minded PS3 fanboy, you could load up the demo on your 360 and try playing it.

  29. dans303:


    Splinter Cell Trilogy releases on European PSN

  30. twilight:

    Roca’s a Ps3 man. The Xbox360 is a foreign object to Roca. Your insulting Roca suggesting that he turn on an inferior device to play an inferior Xbox360 game. Lol.

  31. Roca.:

    I know enough to know that Populous is from the 80s and SF3 is from the 2000s

    You’re the blind fanboy who’s whining and trying to counter the games listed on this article with a game that’s on XBL and will be available on PS3. Either way From Dust doesn’t hold a candle against one of the best entries of one of the most popular gaming franchise of all time.

    Goog luck trying to argue that…
    Try comparing Dust to Flower…there are in the same ballpark (new IPs with some unique gameplay) but Flower has much better score and many awards under its belt.

    geesh, Xbots get excited about everything under the sun these days… must be due to the lack of exclusive quality content.

  32. twilight:

    Flower sucks and so does the other game. Thus Twilight has spoke.

  33. jojo29:

    Godless and any dumbass xbitch who continues to whine about the 360ca not making headlines…

    Xbla summer and i believe a winter one werr mentioned on blorge before…when they also were FIRST announced….psn’s PLAY offering is something new, i.e just announced….so of course its being mentioned….

    Nkw, if next months /time PLAY has a sale and its mentioned here again….THEN you have a case of this site. Being biased…until then shut the fuck up….it would be redudant to keep mentioning every months deals, when you could just turn on your fucking system and see for yourself….

    When ms announced summer deals….it was covered here….now sony has their own tupe of sale now…so now it got a mention…end of story….

    I would say quit crying but, as far as i can tell, yall are only getting 4 exclusives for the remainder of this year and part of next year and ZERO of them are original ips and or innovative titles….2 halos, another gears (sitting which i admit i will.secretly want on my os3 if only because i know it would look and run so much better ;) ) the best gt rip off/wanna be that will never best gt that is forza….no wonder you guysbare pissed….

    All the while we get:
    twisted metal
    ratchet and clank
    The last guardian
    infamous 2
    Uncharted 3
    Resistance 3

    We get sequels, new ips….this is ON TOP of battlefield 3, (sitting cod sucks to me but we get that too) sf3 hd….ultimate mvc 3….it great to own a sony console…we only miss out on one worthy ip…gears ;)

  34. jojo29:

    Also, its funny hownyou xbitches are whinning about coverage…not one “psbot” was whinning about every fucking single new 360 bundle wss mentioned here…in fact i recall just recently some of the “pbots” mentioning even liking the looks of the two most recent 360s….i think the gears one right? And there was some other one….

  35. oldschool1987:

    @ jojo:

    It was the R2-D2 Xbox and it was fucking amazing! I would be tempted to get it but I can’t go out and buy a 4th Xbox! Having to buy 3 is bad enough…

    And there is always deals on the PSN that never get mentioned, you don’t see any of us crying about it. Sure, Sony don’t give it fancy names like: Summer Sales but every single Wednesday when I go onto the Store there is another 2 or 3 free full games I can download, simply for being on Playstation Plus.

    Don’t say, ‘You pay for that so it’s expected’, because you have to pay every single month for Live and don’t get half the offers PS+ gets.

  36. Roca.:

    Seems like PS3 will keep making headlines and Godless and company will keep on whining.

    There is a new PSN update is coming

  37. Roca.:

    here is the link

  38. Godless:

    LOL @ Roca

    check the comments to your link.

    Everyone is saying the patch is for plus members only. and others are asking for all the stuff that xbox already has LMAO.

  39. Roca.:

    Just like the Xbots has been asking for free online play for years…what MS gave them?

    a price hike so they can stfu…LMAO

    as for you whining and nitpicing comments about most of the update being PSN+ only features. Sony has always said that “online gameplay” related features will always be available to all users for FREE while PSN+ will “evolve” over time offering extra feature to enhance and automate the user experience. This update does exactly that.

    But you’re are on the whining side of the fence since you are not a PSN+ members….but you’re a hypocrite since most XBL features are for Gold-only members while that’s not the case on PSN.

    Users still have free access to Netflix, iPlayer, VidZone, Hulu+, Vudu, and all other entertaintment services and features.

    Also, the update was not all for PSN+ members, only the “automatic update” part which has always been a PSN+ only feature. Before it use to automatically download patches, demos, & updates for you and now Sony added the ability to also let it automaticcaly upload your saved data to the cloud and sync your Trophies. So before whining you need to get your facts straight

    Mean while the Xbots gets nothing more than online play for $60 while PSN+ members get actualy content such as free games, DLC, beta, themes, cloud storage, automation features, discount on newly release games much more.

    No surprise you were the first one to whine here.

  40. jojo29:

    Thats the one he r2d2 one…yeah the point still stands…xbox with shiny new paint announced, and “pbots”mentioning actually are impressed by the damn thing….no prob or whinning from the xbitches there….mention something new sony is promoting…and this site is biased…..typjcal xbitch mentality, which was the very same reason i posted on this site to begin with….this site’s members was totally 100% xbitch…thank god we “pbots” aka multi console owners filtered out the trash ;)

  41. Godless:

    LMAO @ multi console owners..

    Wow. . thats just fantastic .jojo. .you made my day with that one ;)

    And yes. .that’s how shit today has been

  42. Roca.:

    You can laugh all you want but it’s true

    oldschool, Carlb, ncaissie, jojo, Birdman, SW, Rhino, Kushy & I have 360s, except ncaissie and jojo but the have Wiis and do PC gaming which is why they are fine without a 360 and still be able to play 360 games such as Fable, Splinter Cell and Gears.

    CAD, CON, HH, Rimmer & Me_ are all single console owners.

  43. Roca.:

    More PS3 headlines

    AC: Revelations beta for PSN+ members starts Sept 3rd

    cue Godless to dig up deep into the comments to try to find something negative to say about it.

  44. CAD:

    I’m not a single console owner, I own a Wii. Roca your a liar you don’t even own a 360. Creating a profile doesn’t count LOL.

  45. oldschool1987:

    @ CAD: Prove he dont own a 360. He has an account and played Alan Wake and others when they were released so it is up toyou to prove your accusations.

    Btw CAD, you enjoying your school summer holidays? Lol

  46. oldschool1987:

    “world cup starts soon mate you should watch it England to become champions once more!”

    @navysteve: Bull! England will not win the world cup for the foreseeable future.

    Last world cup was atrocious! Our players were lazy and lacked passion. They didn’t care or even try, I was embarrassed watching it, I have not watched a single football match since our last world cup game. Fucking joke.

    And even if we had players who were half decent(which we definitely do not!) it’s not about the best team anymore, it’s about what you can get away with. Every game was full of divers, dirty tackles and winkers(I’m looking at you Ronaldo you fucking queer!). The best team doesn’t win anymore, only the dirtiest.

    Fucking grown men rolling around on the field, holding their legs and crying! Its fucking embarrassing! They get paid so much money and all they do is fucking cry like school girls! Give them a SA80 and stick them in my regiment for a tour of Afghan, fuckers will soon learn to toughen up.

    Football is a joke now. Our whole team relies too heavily on Rooney who only plays well when he can be arsed but 90% of the time he’s having a tantrum and spitting his dummy out.

    I will fly my England flag for next world cup but only because I’m patriotic, it will be just the St Georges cross, no fucking lions on it. The players need to earn my support after last world cup.

    (ps I always fly the St Georges cross all year round but I normally fly about 5 more during world cups …not the next one though)

  47. jojo29:

    What was so funny about my multi console comment? Most of one sided comments come from the likes of xbitches who only see ms ballls in their face…

    I own a wii for the games i always love: zelda, metroid, suoer smash, etc…

    I have a gaming rig that most likely spanks most of blorge’s members , i7 quad core OC’d to about 3.8-4.2( pushing on air cooling) 8gb of ram, terabyte hd, ati 5970….

    .battlefield 3 might make it bead of drop of sweat lol crysis/crysis 2 runs beautifully on it ;) not tl mention the origonal gears of war, and fable 2 and maybe 3….

    so really i havent missed out on shit that ms has released the last 5 years except the yearly ripoff that is LIVE Gold (please notice i always point out my prob is with the piece of shit service that is Gold, my lrob is NOT with LIVE) i get to game on all three of my consoles of choice for free….

  48. jojo29:

    In all seriousness man, and i cant stress how many times ive.said this, my prob with the 360piece is honestly the sub fee…it really is that big a deal as it sets a precedent, approx 1/4 of the 360games user base are stupid enough to pay for what? The ability to play a game online with cross game chat? I just want you to realize how foolish that is because of this simple fact: gold servers are the exact same server quality as the pc and ps3 version of the games….let me reiterate…gold sub does NOT get you more stable servers than the pc or ps3 versions of the same game…they are equally quality….please argue this point with me and i will point you to the gears 2of fiasco…

    The second issue i have with ms is: lack of exclusives…you all say they dont matter whe data and fact, not to mention common sense dictate they do….in fact ever since 08, sony has been beating the shit out of the 360…and what is ms response…get rid of studios, re release the same 4game franchises every year and add kinect…..

    All the while sony keeps upping its franchise library with new, innovative, genre defining, graphical benchmark setting games, while securing 3rd party support, all the while expanding its first party lineups….next gen, mark my words, Sony will be spanking ms….and as a kudos to ms…thanks for ms coming out the gates swinging and humbling the fuck out of sony…too bad they tripped.and ran out of steam…

  49. oldschool1987:

    Has Godless finished God of War 1, 2 and 3 yet? Tbh I expected to see him praising 2 when he was on it because of how awesome it is lol. Ain’t heard a peep from him…

  50. dans303:


    Navysteve is talking about Rugby, not Football . . .

  51. oldschool1987:

    …I knew that.
    *shifts uneasily*

    Well my entire rant is pointless!

    *tear runs down cheek, starts masturbating with the tears* lmfao

    Sorry, but that sounded funny in my head :p

  52. Roca.:

    “Has Godless finished God of War 1, 2 and 3 yet? Tbh I expected to see him praising 2 when he was on it because of how awesome it is lol. Ain’t heard a peep from him…”

    LOL, he skipped 2 and still says Dante’s Inferno is a more enjoyable game ROLF

  53. Roca.:


    hopefully you won’t get confuse because the guy is navigating through the XMB so fast that will get you lost (as we all know you have issues understanding the XMB)

  54. oldschool1987:

    Seriously!? Well he is a lost cause then.

    That actually proves he bought a PS3 only to say he has played it’s games and say the 360 is better. That is a dedicated fanboy.

    Skipping GoW2!? *facepalm, table, head, table, head*

  55. Godless:

    Find me a post where I say Xbox is better than PS3? .

    Roca, you’re missing out most of what I said, I have said GOW3 is better in every way, but I find the Cathartic nature of DI to be more enjoyable.

    As for me buying a PS3 just so I can say I’ve played the games then slag them off. .LMAO. . Really. . That’s pathetic

    I’ve bought every games console that I have ever wanted, yes. I held of buying the PS3 till around 2 years back, but there were good reasons for that.

    The main one being that it was just not worth the money, remember I already had a BL player. A couple of exclusives that interested me was not enough to warrant spending £499 to get a machine which at the time didn’t do multiplats as well as the 360., which, by the way, I had only finally bought 1 year previously due to it’s horrific fail rate over the first year or so.

    As soon as it started looking like the PS3 was on par and in some cases bettering the 360 on multiplats, and the number of exclusives that I was interested reached around 5 or so I bought the machine.

    I agree with you that Gold Live is not worth the money, which is why I stopped mine. But I have to say that the PS3 online for gaming is more clunky, it takes way longer to get onto games and I would say it feels more like you’re playing online than the 360 seems to, with the exception of NFS hot pursuit, which finds races quick and lag free when playing, it’s like being back on the Xbox. The others games I have take too long to find games, too long to then get the games started, and once your playing, it feels like you online.. .I don’t want it to feel like I’m online.

  56. Roca.:

    Your last paragraph is pure bullshit. You act as if XBL streamlined the matchmaking process, which is not true. Games on both version uses matchmaking process but the problem is that you play alot of shitty games that don’t sell as much on PS3 becasue PS3 user are most likely to move on to the next game (with the constant stream of exclusive coming out) and those games also sell better on XBL due to the lack of content.

    For example – DNF sold better on 360, the figure was something like 70% – 30%..

    It’s pretty obvious that PS3 gamers chose Infamous 2 over any other game that came out during that time frame (as I2 was the best selling game in EU and US in June) and we were also pretty busy with other exclsuives that have been coming out all year long.

    You’re the only one in here who complain about lag on PSN…but we all know you’re either making that up (like you do with most of your negative PS3 comments) or you need a better router, or better broadband connection.

    Oldschool is from EU like you and he was impressve about how MAG handle over 250 players online with no lag. In fact, Gears has more lag (and more online issues)

    And you find DI more enjoyable because your refusal to enjoy PS3 games – we all remember you have talked trash about highly rated PS3 exclusive such as R&C, LBP, Killzone, GOW, Wipeout, Infamous, Motorstorm and ModNation – all of which are considered some of the best games in their genre.

  57. ncaissie:

    I don’t think he even bought a ps3. I think I remember him saying he got it as a gift. Ot that may have been Rimmer.

  58. twilight:


  59. Godless:

    Roca, the truth is the PS3 exclusives are just not as good as you think they are.

    you consistently over rate them.

    I don’t give a toss which platform a game is on, if I like it, then I like it, if I don’t , then I don’t. Simple as that. There are as many games on Xbox that I have started and got bored of, and as many that I just don’t like full stop, I’m not picking on your precious PS3

    you are calling my comparison of Xbox Vs PS3 online BS, when you have nothing to compare against Roca, You haven’t even played games online with the 360, so you haven’t a god dammed clue what you’re talking about.

    I don’t care what the excuses for the PS3 being more clunky online are, for me the 360 online gaming experience is better, that’s all I’m saying..

    Caissie. . You remember wrong

  60. Roca.:

    “Roca, the truth is the PS3 exclusives are just not as good as you think they are.”

    reviews, graphics and awards say otherwise.

    I have played online on 360, I remember sitting hours waiting SC:C to find a match. Well the game was garbage so that’s understandable

    Godless – ” don’t care what the excuses for the PS3 being more clunky online are, for me the 360 online gaming experience is better, that’s all I’m saying..”

    To you, everything about the PS3 is clunky or too confusing..You even have a hard time navigating through the XMB LMAO

  61. twilight:

    It’s blatantly obvious that you just prefer the Xbox360. You are always constantly fussing over/bashing anything Ps3 related. If you prefer what the Xbox360 system offers overall, then just pay for Xbox live and enjoy what Xbox live offers.

  62. Roca.:

    “If you prefer what the Xbox360 system offers overall, then just pay for Xbox live and enjoy what Xbox live offers”

    which is nothing, besides online play.
    The other few things it offer are either free or you have to pay for them as well.

  63. Godless:


    I have no problem at all with the PS3 menu, My comments were along the lines that to those unaccustomed to it, it can be confusing and non intuitive.

    As usual you are taking statements out of context or just plane twisting them into what you want to believe.

    I’ve been using computers since you were in nappies, so far I haven’t gone senile and can still work my way through most things with few problems.

    What I am now able to do, which you seem incapable of, is to look at things from the perspective of others, and make a call as to whether something is suitable for them.

    When you grow up a bit Roca you will know what I’m on about.

  64. Roca.:

    That’s not what you said – You said the UI was a mess and confusing.

    Sorry pal but you don’t act like a you know much about tech stuff. You always having problem with your connection, understanding the UI, accepting the PS3 is the best BD player and media hub. You can’t understand the award winning XMB.

    The PS3 controller gives you cramp but somehow you manage to do with with the PS1 and PS2 lol (hypocrite)

    You don’t seem to know how to stream content to PS3 without the need of a external HDD

    Also you can’t never back up all your bullshit statements, no even when Google is a click away. you keep saying your source is hard to find.

    get up to date, computers and CE products are not the same as they were in the 70s…well just the 360 ;)

  65. Godless:


    I have the media steaming set up, but why the fuck would I want to stream to my PS3 or Xbox for that matter, I’d just use the PC why the hell would I want to have both devices on?

    Play station controller has always been a bit shit, think I already explained that I made a joystick to play the arcade titles on the PS1 15 years ago or whenever xevious 3DG was released. It was the final straw. so no hypocrisy here.

    I have No problems with my connection at all, what I have a problem with is the shity built in wireless interface of the PS3, which is just about the only thing in the house that needs to be hardwired to work properly, as backed up by several work colleagues and a trillion internet blogs.

    Roca, I have a degree in engineering computer technology, I was programming games for over 10 years, did my degree, learned how the hardware actually works, which makes the whole thing even more amazing, did some PLC , PLD programming before then moved to server support for 5 years or so.

    What’s you computer background then?

  66. Godless:

    PS. .never owned a PS2
    and PS3 is far from the best BL player. . jack of all YES. . best NO.

  67. Roca.:

    thanks for proving my point.

    now go back to your cave.

  68. jojo29:

    ps3 is actually right up there witg the best of, actyally the best player is an oppo player but ecen then the ps3 edges it out on sheer features…id say get your money back for that degree man….

  69. Roca.:

    “id say get your money back for that degree man…”


  70. jojo29:

    Just fyi, despite my very vulgar posting style, despite us being on opposite ends of debates, i dont harbor any ill feeling toward you, just jokes ;)

  71. jojo29:

    Your from the boston area right? Do you visit cali often?

  72. twilight:

    I generally like all ‘Blorge people but there’s only one guy that irks me.

  73. jojo29:

    Let me guess:
    CAD/Con….i would say kev/hh but their long gone…

  74. twilight:

    It’s not Cad. I like Cad. Cad is actually quite a nice fellow. I got to chat with Cad awhile back. However, you did guess right. It’s our resident poltical terrorist Con. His political views are disturbing.

  75. ncaissie:

    It’s funny these guys say live is better than PSN but live is not worth paying for. But to me PSN is worth paying for. They must really dislike online to not think its worth >$5 a month.
