The Amber Light

I have recorded what happened in this rant. I will upload it this week and will embed the video at the bottom.

For those that knows me well will know that I hate random lights on when I am trying to sleep and this is the tale of the motherboard that refused to turn off.

For the last few weeks I have been upgrading my PC and although it is not yet done (still need to get more RAM, new I/O panel and what not) the computer itself turns on and works fine although it a very loud device (the I/O panel has a temperature sensor on it to fix this).

Farewell Metal Gear Online

Silo Sunset  (Esper Girl)

Silo Sunset (Esper Girl)

I would guess that you have quite likely at least heard of a gaming series called Metal Gear Solid and if not well there is Wikipedia for that. Against I am sure what most people think, I am not really into the online gaming thing that much but there has always been one game that I have always enjoyed playing and that was Metal Gear Online 2 for the Playstation 3.

Having been released many years ago now, Metal Gear Online was originally a fine example of how to do an online shooter based game and while it was not graphically as good as other Playstation 3 games that has been released now, it always had that little special thing about being a stealth action game and all that stuff.

Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection Review

Metal Gear Solid: HD CollectionAlthough I did not originally plan to write a review about Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection, I have been flooded with emails asking what I think about it, I decided it is worth posting here and I am going to sum it up in a few words and then do an actual review below in case you are in a hurry.

If you have the originals, this is not worth getting unless you fancy Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker on the Playstation 3.

And now the review and like any other review, I am going to review the game as if there is no original to compare it too so you get to know about the game itself rather than what “has been improved”.

Dissidia Duodecim 012 Review

Dissidia Duodecim 012

With the game being released within the United Kingdom tomorrow, I figured I will give you a review based on what I think about the game (good old US versions). The game is basically much like the original Dissidia with a few new people  in it with a few people changing sides. Such examples are Cloud and Terra joining Chaos for a bit and Lightning, Tifa and a few others joining the side of Cosmos aside with the original lot who are with whomever they was (other than Jecht whom switched over to Cosmos side).

Now the story basically focuses on the new lot and why they are not in the original Dissidia and focuses on something called Manikins – an army of crystalline clones of the warriors. Story wise, it does follow on directly with the original Dissidia as it is the cycle based before it. If you do not know what I mean by that, play Dissidia again. Now I will not stay much more about the story and will just move onto the rest of it.

A day without the Internet

The Internet has given society many wonderful things. It has allowed the World Wide Web to work, allows files to be transferred and so much more but has it really gotten to a point where everything we do has to be done online.

The first example is Facebook. I am aware lately so many people are moaning, begging even, about being accepted on my Facebook account or I simply am not friends with them. I am not sure how that works but surely that must mean I chat and only do social things with my friends online. In fact, let me find out.

The tales of an old man

Quite often on Tweaked for your Pleasure I write about things that happens in my life and this is one of these articles.

As I was visiting a town which I am not going to name as I am sure I will get a flood of fans going there, I had quite an interesting chat on the bus coming back. At the bus stop I was sitting on one of the benches listening to South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut on the Sony PlayStation Portable when this old man walks overs.

As it was raining, I picked my bag up that I had with me and moved to the side so that the old man could sit down. However, this man refuses to sit down as the bench was wet at which point he asks me is that the “latest iPhone”. Smiling, I simply said that it was a PSP – a small gaming device.

The yellow Hedgehog is back

Super Sonic

Super Sonic

Last June I did an article called Just give me the yellow hedgehog and it was an article just talking about Sega’s stolen Super Sayian…, oh I mean it was just about how Super Sonic was no longer in the main game itself.

However today I was finally able to see the yellow hedgehog once again in the main game but is he still as good and as useful as before. Well before I actually get onto Super Sonic, let’s do a nice short review on Sonic the Hedgehog 4 for the Sony Playstation 3 (other consoles may vary).
