Okay, you may have noticed that I missed a couple of TL;DR’s. That’s because over the weekend I went to St. Louis for the Final Fantasy: Distant Worlds Symphony. It was amazing and I recommend you go to one if you ever have the chance. Anyway, let’s get this thing started. It looks like researchers at MIT have discovered that memories are stored in specific neurons and can be triggered at will. Take that knowledge and throw a little technology at it and we may eventually be able to sell memories. I can’t wait to blurt out, “I know Kung-Fu,” without it being a joke.
Everybody Slow Clap
What would be your brilliant scheme to hide out if you were an AWOL soldier? Would you steal a billionaire’s identity and use his debit card to pay your bills? No, huh? You sure? Yeah, you’re right. That does sound like it could draw some attention. Too bad nobody told Brandon Lee Price that.
Two PSP titles have been pulled from the Playstation Network because they can be used to in a Vita exploit. The exploit allows homebrew programming to run on a Vita in PSP mode. Hot Shots Tennis and MotorStorm Arctic Rift are going to be unavailable until they figure out a fix. Either that or the games are gone for good.
The flying bird man turned out to be a hoax. It was the work of a Dutch CGI artist who’s pretty good at his craft. That’s a shame because it would have been awesome.
Ahhhh… My Brain
Ok, if you haven’t been paying attention lately, I’ll bring you up to speed. A lot of people were unhappy with the ending of Mass Effect 3 so they took to the internet and now it’s going to be changed. The really bad thing is that one group was using Child’s Play to get attention for their cause. People were unsure who they were actually donating to, so it caused a huge mess. I miss the days when people finished a game, discussed it for a while, then moved on. Now we’ve got a world full of people with an unwarranted sense of entitlement that gripe until they get their way. Shame on you, Bioware, for giving in to them.
A ghost ship that was lost since the tsunami in Japan was spotted about 100 miles off the coast of Canada. I think it should be renamed Harbinger. Why? Because as early as this October the west coast could start seeing debris from the disaster.
I’ve been playing Armored Core V quite a bit and I think for the first time ever I’m going to end up getting a couple months of Gold for my Xbox Live account so I can do some multiplayer action on it. What have I become? If you have a copy and want to play send me your gamertag in the comments or on Twitter, @kelknaughty.
