Home Open Beta

Postby Bonn-o-Tron » Sat Dec 13, 2008 12:15 am

Playstation Home is now in its open beta, so we can finally try it out.

I just played for about 30 minutes, and I have to say, it gets boring quickly. At first, I found it pretty cool, designing my guy, and then moving furniture around in my apartment. After that was done, I was mildly entertained for a few minutes by the different emoticons and actions my character could perform. I then took the time to explore the plaza, and the shopping mall, and after I was finished with that, I realized that there was quite literally nothing to do in this game.

I did, however, manage to get some lulz out of it. First, I used all my available furniture to barricade the door to my room. Then, I approached random individuals, and explained to them that I barricaded my room and it offered sufficient protection to repel zombies. I then offered them a spot in my refuge, in case such a zombie outbreak ever occured, and explained that I would only be able to support 7 to 8 people, and I'd have enough snacks to last 3 weeks. Only 1 person had messaged me so far, and I think that's a pretty good start.

Anyways, I recomend you try this game out if you're bored out of your brains, as it has potential to keep you occupied for a moderate length of time. If anyone wants to contact me in-game, my name is Bonn-o-Tron (surprise, surprise).

Hmm... zombie attack...

You think Home will do that? I know that WOW did, but they had a reason. Kinda.

I'm holding MGS4 in my arms while I post.

And the PS3 box with Little Big Planet is next to the Yule tree.

And i'm constantly looking at them.

My friend's family does that because their mom never buys them what they want. They go shopping WITH her, pick the stuff out themselves, then they get it on Saturnalia.

I had to do it, my father couldn't choose because I asked for a single PS3 without any games packed, and he could only find pakcs. So I came with him and bought the PS3 along with 2 games because there were only PS3s with packed games.

And now I have 2 games instead of the 1 I asked for.

My school marks helped a bit into convincing my father.

So, now you have more videogames than you asked for, both of them are awesome, you also have the platform to play them on, and you can't?

Bummer man...

I'll have to wait. They're my Saturnalia presents.

Only 10 days. Most of them are vacations, so time will pass faster...

Then on the eve's eve night, I won't be able to get asleep.

Happens to me when it's my birthday or it's Saturnalia eve, and it happens when next day there is some big entertaining activity (aka the fisrt time I played Paintball).
