My hard drive is dying!! it makes an irritating clicking sound every now and then and when it does it my pc starts to slow down tremendously. I’m currently backing up files, you know the important shit. School work, short stories I’ve typed, some funny gifs and pictures, game saves, and my Fallout New Vegas file. I really hope I don’t lose all my mods. It was such a pain in the ass when I switched over from my laptop to a PC. Had to redownload everything because for some reason my NV would crash all the time. This time I’m copying over my Nexus mod manager and my NV folder.
It sucks that my hard drive is dying though, I haven’t even had it for a year well, I’m going to look around Amazon or Newegg and see what I can find. Thinking of getting a 2TB Western Digital HDD. I hear it’s a good brand, hopefully it doesn’t crap out on me in less than a year like this one did >_>. I was planning on starting my Witcher 2 playthough today, guess that’ll go on hold. Plus, I don’t think I’ll be purchasing anything this summer during the Steam sale since most likely I’ll end up spending my entire steam budget on a new hard drive 😦 Guess I’ll have to wait till the winter; maybe I can get some of the money from my aunt who owes me like $1.5k(it’s a long story, don’t ask.) and I might be able to still buy stuff. I don’t know, we’ll see.
Well like I said yesterday, I was looking around the internet for a controller so I could play on my PC. I’ve been using my wireless PS3 controller connected via usb but I’d rather not keep playing like that since it messes up the battery of the controller, it’s happened to me before. So I was going to go with the official Xbox 360 wired controller but then I found the MLG controller which can be customized to either the PS3 layout or 360 layout. Now this was great for me because as a PS3 gamer I much prefer the analog sticks to both be on the bottom and the dpad to be on top. But, unfortunately it cost 100 dollars. So instead of just giving up I decided to buy one from the Amazon Warehouse for $65. If you’re not familiar with Amazon’s Warehouse everything is pretty much used so yea. I’ve never bought anything from Amazon Warehouse or anything used online so I don’t know how good it’ll be when it comes. The original package contains 4 analog sticks(2 360 style and 2 PS3 style) and 2 dpads(1 360 and the other PS3), 2 different styled plates, weights to make the controller heavier or lighter, and a small case to fit all this in. I’m hoping it comes with everything but I should probably lower down my expectations so I don’t end up disappointed otherwise. Hopefully it works so I don’t have to return it; I’ve never returned anything online so to be honest I have no idea how I’d return it. Also, it won’t be here till next week according to Amazon but since I live in New York it might come earlier than usual like everything else I order directly from Amazon.
Yesterday while spending some time with the family I went into a Gamestop and started glancing around. I saw some of the typical games that I want but patiently wait for a price drop(Catherine, Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, Persona 4 Golden, etc.) but while looking I noticed some games that I really wanted to play but was waiting for a price drop and when it did finally drop, I just forgot about it completely. One that really caught my eye was Rock Band 3, a franchise that I always had my eyes on but never got to it simply for 1 reason: the goddamn cost it takes to get the full experience.
When I saw the drums I thought to myself “holy shit, I totally need this game,” but my god does it cost an arm and a leg simply for plastic that is only good for 1 game(not to mention the space it takes.) Anyway, Rock Band 3 was hands down the one that I really wanted to get because of the keyboard. But like I said earlier, I wasn’t about to spend like +$120 on a single game, so I never got to it. Plus, it didn’t help that I didn’t have any friends who played it so it would pretty much only be me playing with random people online which is what I normally do but when I play co-op games I prefer to play them with people I actually know. Unfortunetly the drums are still way too expensive and with this console generation ending I feel that I’ll never get a chance to try this game out. It’s too bad I don’t got the cash to be throwing around to get the instruments, I bet this game is a lot of fun.
