End the Next-Gen Console War

Can we end the phrase “next-gen console war”?  Honestly…there isn’t any war between the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.  And even if there was, you, the buyer of either console, aren’t a part of it.  No console will “fail”.  Neither system needs you to help sell it or cheerlead for it.  Microsoft and Sony don’t need your help.  They each have huge budgets and professionals to help get the word out and sell their products.

The Failure of SimCity and the Cities of Tomorrow

SimCity (Technically, SimCity 5 or SimCity 2013, just so we are clear about which version I’m talking about since EA/Maxis dropped the numbering) was a huge disappointment for me.  EA/Maxis were close to hitting the mark, but couldn’t get the game exactly to what longtime fans of the series expected.  Let me tell you where the game failed in my eyes.

PlayStation Move calibration fails; found a fix

I was trying to play the Sports Champions today with my PlayStation Move on PS3 today and I was having a problem with the game calibrating the PlayStation Move controller.  The part right after you start the game and it wants you to point the PlayStation Move controller at the screen and press the two buttons.  It would fail every time.  I followed the on screen instructions to try and fix it, but nothing worked.  I also tried unplugging my camera and plugging it back it.  Nothing.  I tried playing the Time Crisis demo on the demo disc, but the cursor never pointed on the screen properly.

However, I did find something that worked to fix the problem.  In the PlayStation 3 menu, you can actually recalibrate the PlayStation Move controller.  See the video below on how to recalibrate the controller if you are having this problem.

I'm not sure if this is a permantent fix for the problem, but I haven't had any problems so far after doing it.

DSiWare is terrible; my solution

I just got a Nintendo DSi over the weekend to replace the Nintendo DS lite that my dog ate last year.  If you already have one, you know you can download games from the Nintendo DSi Shop.  Games range from 200-800 Nintendo Points.  Points cost $10 for 1000.  There is also a free web browser and some other application that I didn’t bother with, if you need something for free.  I don’t even use my regular consoles for browsing the web, no way in hell I am wasting time on the DSi trying to browse the web.
