I Don't Eat, I Don't Sleep...

Darn it, I can't believe I forgot to write an entry last night, I usually can't sleep until I do. Well, even if I can't say I did one a day, hopefully I can say I did one FOR each day. That's legit, right?

Things aren't going so great for the project, either. It's taking ages to do the simplest-looking things, I don't think it'll turn out the way I want it to turn out at all. Worst of all, crunch time is darn close, and I'm going to have to spend absolutely all my free time working on it today. Fun!

On the lighter side, how about that ps4 announcement, right? I'd almost be tempted to buy the thing (it'd make Let's Plays a lot easier), but there aren't any games I MUST have that have been announced yet, and NO reverse compatibility (none?) is a real deal breaker. We'll just have to see.

Movie of the day: The Thing. I can't stress enough that this is not for the squeamish. Unless you have a decent desensitization to horror, don't even try it. But if you can play Resident Evil 4, it's one of the best horror movies I've ever seen, even today. The only thing that's aged is Kurt Russel's hairdo. The sense of atmosphere is unique and powerful, and the monster is just as scared of the heroes as they are of it! You have fear both ways. This is 80's filmmaking at it's finest, just steer clear of the 2011 version that completely missed the point.

Song of the day: Under Your Spell by Desire. This song is hypnotic and dreamlike, 80's styling done exactly right... Except for that freaking spoken part. Take that out and it's an elegantly beautiful song.

Hm, it's showing me that you had things in on might be the time difference, well, at least you can say you kept in 1 a day in some parts of the world. :D

How long do you have to prepare for this project? If you have time, I recommend stepping back and trying to figure out if the end product you had planned is what you want...if you don't have time...all nighters be with you. Good luck either way!

One reason they don't give rverse compatibility, $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ They make money if your forced to buy old systems to play old games. If I may ask, why would the ps4 make lets plays any easier than using whatever technology you already have?

The PS$ will allow you to record and stream gameplay directly from the system. It's probably the most interesting part of the console so far.
