I would mind being THIS TIRED so much less if I'd done anything to warrant it. Apparently doing sweet fuck-all for two days is exhausting, news at 11.

But what I DID do is get my PS Vita working again! (It takes a standard micro-USB charger, in theory. In theory.) But I have since found one or two that will actually charge the damn thing, so I'm back to doing the install-uninstall shuffle to fit things on my memory card! I have a Playstation Plus membership, because it makes me feel less bad about new games if I paid for them like eight months ago, so I installed a bunch of the games from that, and I have a load of PS1 games I bought a while ago.

(It is REALLY WEIRD to think that a four-disk PS1 game now fits on a memory card the length of my fingertip. It's REALLY WEIRD.)

  • Laser Disco Defenders: fun, but I am terrible at it. It's a brightly coloured disco-themed game of the genre that I'm calling Bullet Hell Of Your Own Making; any shots you fire stay in the level and bounce off everything, which means that the worse you are at aiming/ricochets, the harder making it through the level without getting shot is. ... I am VERY BAD at aiming.

  • Final Fantasy VIII: I have played the intro up to you getting into class every time I find my PSVita, and then I pause it while I go do something else and forget about it. This time, I made it to the first save point! And I have read all of the starting information it gives you, and a) I forgot that they brought in mentions of the amnesia so early, b) the yearly memorial service is REALLY GRIM when you think about it, c) I forgot that every non-staff person in this building is between the ages of 9 and 20. THAT'S FUCKING GRIM. ... And then I went "Why do I keep avoiding Triple Triad," lost three times in a row, and called it a day. Soon: PUNCHING FISH FOR THEIR DELICIOUS MAGIC.

  • Severed: Okay, this one is WEIRD but interesting. You play as Sasha, a one-armed girl exploring the underworld(?) or hell(?), trying to find your family. It's really brightly coloured and the designs are cool, but also it's really fucking horrifying. See also: THIS MIGHT BE HELL. But it's also mainly a touchscreen game? Which... I forget that the Vita HAS a touchscreen, so this is weird to me. I am enjoying it, even though it feels like an updated old-school adventure game, the ones where you have to find a key/lever of the correct colour to open the corresponding door. I just... Want to reserve judgement on the story until I get to the end of it.

  • I also finally got around to starting Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star! So far it has been... Suspiciously wholesome. There has only been one incident of unethical mad science and nothing terrible has happened. If it wasn't for the pigeons I'd genuinely think that I was playing the wrong game!


Lex and I were going to see the dinosaur exhibit on near us, but the website was down so we couldn't buy tickets, and he wasn't sure that he wanted to queue on a bank holiday when everyone and their kids would be there. But we are DEFINITELY GOING on our next days off. DEFINITELY, because I will be so sad if I miss this exhibit. They're dinosaurs discovered in China! Apparently one of them is the first dinosaur they found with evidence of feathers! IT SOUNDS SO COOL!

How bout everyone else? Anyone do owt for the bank holiday?
