When the Playstation 4 came out last year (? or was it two years ago), I didn’t think that I would end up buying it, I felt that I had enough games, and I didn’t exactly feel the need for a new console. Then I learned this fall that Metanet Software was bringing the next generation N, named N++, after N+ (funny), to the Playstation 4, and as the fan I am, I knew that I now had to get me a Playstation 4 to play it. It was looking out to be one expansive game for me.
The plan was to wait for the release (which is sometime this year), but I tried Far Cry 4 on the Playstation 4 at my best buddy and I was convinced that I wanted Far Cry 4 and the Playstation 4 as soon as possible. So about a month and a half later I ended up with this!

The Glacier edition. I wanted something new and not the same old black console, as most of my other new consoles are. As my girlfriend wanted to play Last of Us I picked up that too, as the graphic on the Playstation 4 compared to the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360 is a lot better!
I’m looking forward to these two PS4 games. The first is The Witness by Jonathan Blow, the creator of Braid (which I have not yet played). Looks very promising and I’ve been following the developer blog for some time now.
The second game is the new inFamous game. I loved the three previous ones, so hopefully this one will be as good or if not better. I’m curious how it will be to play as the new character. Plus I’m hoping we finally can learn to fly!
Since PSN is soon recoverd. Sony is giving away free games to the owners. We can pick two from the PS3 list and two from the PSP list! Woho! I’m going for Infamous and Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty. Was thinking about Wipeout HD/Fury, but I’ll be likely to buy it over Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty. As I already have LittleBigPlanet for PSP I will go for Killzone Liberation and Pursuit Force on the PSP.
Two PS3 games from the following list:
Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty

Today is Free Comic Book Day and I’ve been to my local comic book store to get me some free comics. Picked up a Green Lantern, Avatar, Super Dinosaur, Simpsons and Jake The Dreaming. Only read the Simpsons yet, and it was funny. Jake The Dreaming looks promising with the cool drawings. I also got two free Heroclix figures, War Machine and Green Lantern. Awesome! After that I went to Gamestop and I bought six PS2 games, need to save up for a used PS2 now. Metal Gear Solid 2 Sons of Liberty with bonus DVD, Soul Calibur 2, Timesplitter 2, Tony Hawk 3, Tony Hawk 4, and Twisted Metal: Black. 3 for the price of 2 is nice!
On the way back home I took some graffiti pictures which I’ll upload to Flickr later today.
Followed some links today, and ended up at a blog showing off some awesome unpublished “hidden” Rez artwork. For those who doesn’t know what Rez is, either see this or imagine a game with pulsating lasers and light with awesome trance music.
You could also check out this website dedicated to Rez when it first came out.
Got my boxed PSOne today in the mail. It was a bit smelly when I opened up, guess it been stored away from a long time. Sorry for no photos from the inside, but opened while I was playing Modern Warfare 2. So no time for pictures then. Wonder where to place it, my corner shelf is getting kinda full. I also need to update my Collection page at this blog. It’s way outdated.
Finally got my PSOne in the mail. Guess I’ve been waiting for it for nearly a month. I did now that I wouldn’t get it right away, because after I bought it. The seller found out it was broken, so he needed to get another one for me. “Anywho”, now I have it. And it’s a lot smaller than I imagined. Hoping to have time to test it tomorrow. He also sent some extra games since it was delayed. Took some pictures of it all.
I’ve also been testing my Zune HD more today, this one is also smaller that I thought, but I’m getting used to it. Sadly I can’t use the browser at school. So no surfing in class. Guess thats a good thing. I also tried Little Big Planet on the PSP today. Not for a long time, but it looks promising.
It’s time to tell you a bit about my last days. I’m finally done with all my exams and my summer vacation have started. Which means that I can do what ever I want. I’ve also got my work plan for this summer and they (Smart Club) want me to work a lot. Everyday with of course two days of every week. That means a lot of money, but also not that much time of. That sucks, but guess it’s all about growing up. No more two months summer vacation. Other than working, I’m going to practice my skills with Java, and I’m aiming to make three games and one demo (for Solskogen 09). The first game is the Chaogotchi game that I’ve mention before. Need to get it done, and the two others is probably going to use the same engine, but it is two project that I’m working on with two different groups. Going to be fun! Planning to start tomorrow to play around with some 3d cubes and such, and we’ll see how it goes from there.
I’ve also went to my cabin with my mother and brother. Took sometime off, which was nice. Plus we cleaned out of the shed, so now all the crap we don’t need is gone! My brother and I also hit some balls out into the lake where our cabin is. That was fun, we also tried to find them again, which was a rather cold experience. Since we’re talking about golf, I was playing a nine hole with my brother, uncle and cousin yesterday. It went really well, and I’m just a couple of points from reaching the “normal” score. Also called par. A funny thing happened after we where done and we where gonna walk of the ninth hole. As I approached my cousin from behind while he was holding his putter with the head up, he suddenly and quickly turned around. As I was to slow to reacted he ended up hitting me by accident with his putter. It was a really hard hit so I started to bleed, a lot. So my brother helped me down on the ground so I could lay down and the blood could bleed backwards away from my eyes. So then we drove of to the emergency to check if I had gotten an concussion and to sew my two “holes” in the head. Waiting for the doctor to check me out took some time, but when he finally arrived it all went rather quick and he stated that I didn’t have a concussion (which is awesome), but that I had to sew 5 stitches to cover up on of the “holes”. The other one he just used some strips to tighten it. So that’s how my yesterday was. Rather fun and a bit painfully. Mostly because I was being a man and getting sewn without anesthetic. How man isn’t that?!
Today is Monday, and it’s my first vacation day. I’m taking it easy because of the accident yesterday. Was a little trip outside, bought Test Drive Unlimited (played it before) and it’s a lot of fun. My brother is also buying it, so going to be super fun! There is also a lot of track to download from the net! I’ve also played a lot of Minecraft. You should check it out if you haven’t tried it yet! I’m also thinking about buying a Playstation 3, as they are getting rather cheap now. We’ll see how the week goes…
