Memory Card Breaker. You know what I'm talking about, right? It's those stupid memory card holders they put in the PS2 Game Cases.
Here, let me refresh your... "memory":
I swear, last time I entrusted my hard-earned save data to one of those things, I had to fight like the devil to get it out. I nearly snapped the card in half in the process. I could feel it flexing as though it had been grasped by some abyssal raven's claws and then anchored in space by their terrible might!
Therefore, I've decided to rechristen these holders "Memory Card Breakers". Lord knows that Sony's probably made millions from the unfortunate souls who made the dire mistake of sticking their memory cards into these things, only to require a replacement after failing to retrieve it in one piece!
I've been incredibly busy lately... oh, you know... the usual:
- Playing through Skies of Arcadia for the Dreamcast... again.
- Playing through MGS3. I decided to restart since my save data was over a year old and I wasn't about to cheat and adjust the clock. On a side note, I'm obviously not the kind of guy Kojima made the game for. I haven't any... well... stealth. When I play as Snake, everything dies. Everything.
- Playing Halo 2 on Xbox Live... as usual.
I've basically been slacking off. Well, you know how that is.
Damn, I can't wait 'till I get my Xbox 360! I just ordered a stupid Core system, since I had concluded that although the Premium was the cost-effective choice, it's usually only available as part of ridiculously overpriced online bundles, or as an untrustworthy eBay auction. I'll just do the Core & Upgrades thing. With these shortages, some people have had no choice but to settle for less.
Actually, to tell you the truth, I have some interesting plans for my Core system, once I get it. Later on in the year, when the Premiums are capable of sitting idly on store shelves without people buying them up left and right, I'm going to get one to use as my unmodified "primary 360". After that, I'll take out the guts of my ol' Core system and paint the case Lacquer Black using Acrylic car paint. And then, I'll use masking tape to make green stripes in a chevron pattern on the case's side, with a cool center emblem to boot!
Neat idea, huh?
