well...there goes my gaming productivity.

Have you been using this?  I got it on my PS3 and it's crap.  The quality is better than using the browser, but it will play for a few minutes and the completely lock up.  I can't get through a whole video.

Mine locks up and then when I try to quit the app, the ps3 completely crashes and reboots with 3 beeps.  Apparently lots of other people are having issues with it.  Do you have the slim or fat ps3?  I haven't tried on my fatty, but it's pretty much unusable on the slim.

I backed up my system and then did a full system format software restore, we'll see if that does anything.

The only one I can get a bunch of kills with is Janna. I just throw that tornado thing and run away.

Guild Wars 2 is teh awesome.  I was going to play with my cousin but he fell asleep.  I still played anyway.  It's great so far.  Funny how d3 was unplayable for the first few days and ArenaNet decides to say freak it, we're opening the servers 3 hours early in a game where there are hundreds or thousands of people in the same gigantic world.  And it didn't have a single hiccup in my playtime.  They apparently have some kind of system where if too many people are in a zone you go into the "overflow" version of that zone.  You can still do everything as the other zones it seems, it's just a second instance of the zone to deal with the load so you don't have a billion people in one spot.  I played for about 10 minutes in the overflow Metrica Province until I got a notification that I could join the main version.  Didn't really see a difference.

Anyway, here's Freezer Burns, level 4 Asura Elementalist.

Lookin' like a total pimp in his GW2 baseball cap from the Black Lion Trading Company store (aka the cash shop - hat is a free item until Sept 15).

My buddy played for a few hours last night until his server crashed or whatever. Said it was bad ass though.

Get it!  You still get the pre-purchase items and head start access if you buy now.  No monthly fee, just buy the game and play online for free :twisted:

There is a way to screen capture using the PS3, I'm just not sure how. I think you have to use the xmb to do it, but I could be wrong.
