For no good reason, I thought I’d write a post on what I’ve been doing with my PS3 so far. I haven’t played MGS4 yet. I’m waiting until I have a good block of time to get started on it. (Maybe after I finish Final Fantasy 8.) I’ve spent a lot of time messing around with Pain, which is a downloadable game that came free with the PS3/MGS4 bundle. It’s a lot of fun. Basically, you shoot a guy out of a slingshot and try to cause as much damage as possible, both to the guy and his surroundings. Very cathartic.
I felt like I needed to go out and actually buy at least one game for the PS3, so I went to Best Buy and bought Orange Box today. The main reason for buying it was to get Portal, which is a nifty little puzzle game with a twisted sense of humor. And an end-credit song by Jonathan Coulton. I’ve already started playing it. Supposedly, it can be finished in just a few hours, so I may be about half-way done. (Or maybe not. I’m usually slower than average with these kind of games.) I’m not sure if I’ll bother with any of the other games in Orange Box. I’m not that interested in online multi-player stuff like Team Fortress 2, and I’m not sure Half-Life will be my cup of tea. I guess I’ll try it out at some point and see if I like it.
