So my precious first generation 60GB backward-compatible Playstation 3 got its second YLOD (Yellow Light of Doom) a few days ago and it looks like it’s dying for good. It gave us the YLOD for the first time around less than a month ago, and we managed to revive it using this solder reflow method but it is only a temporary fix. Everything I read on the net says that even if a PS3 that has YLOD has been fixed with the better fix of solder reballing, it’s still just on life support and the second YLOD just confirmed it.
So I’m now looking for a new PS3 to replace the dying/dead one, and also searching for the best methods to get my game data and save files from the old one to the new one (especially the save data, since I don’t have Playstation Plus). There’s a few things I noticed when researching, and this blog post is actually my notes to self to see things more clearly and list the things I should do or note later.
Of course, if this posts helps more people than just me, it’s a pleasant bonus.
* Note, I don’t have those rental videos and copy-righted video downloads so there’s a lot lesser things I need to pay attention to. If you have those, read the articles/posts/guides I linked to and take note. Best to google and get your own confirmation.
And Achievement window UI renovation! Auto-roll NO! So many nice improvements!
I’m in heaven!!! <3
For the people I have made very confused, I’m talking about Dragon Nest SEA’s new patch “A Blast To The Past Of Your Dragon Nest Adventure Game Patch“. Although I was inactive for a while because the new content wasn’t at all appealing to me and guild more or less mass-migrated to FFXIV (which I’ll be starting next month), the new updates caught my eyes.
Dragon Fellowship and Deceptive Stronghold sounds interesting, though the one update I’m looking forward to is the monopoly like Exploration thing. More importantly, collection titles update. *-* The collector soul in me is so excited right now. Can’t wait to check it out ingame later.

After the latest patch (the one that added Typhoon Kim Nest and Professor K Nest hell mode), us lucky pet owners now have talking pets! Check out the link to a forum topic where members of the community posted so many screenshots of their pets saying stuff.
My hound is a violent little thing that wants to *CRACK* monsters sometimes, and thinks of food a lot.
I posted about this some time back, and now the Tales of the World: Dice Adventure service has officially ended. I’m a sad panda now.
I didn’t manage to collect all the available characters via Infinite Colosseum event (in most part because I couldn’t afford time spent distracted on playing this, although it had stress relief purposes), but I did take a batch of screenshots of my favorite characters that I collected.
Think I should share them next time?

So I was trying out the CBT2 for the new game from Cherry Credits, a cute chibi-form 3rd person shooter called ‘Avatar Star’, and had a problem which prompted me to check the Technical Issue forum of the game.
I’m a sad panda now. I never really explored all of its content (I didn’t do Colosseum or PVP at all) but I did set my parties to do quests on a pretty regular basis for a while back (because my work got too busy).
Ah well, the end date is on 28th June 2013 midnight, Japan time, so I can still play this for around 2 months or so.
Just so sad to see another game I play end service.
A new Collection Title! Title Collection Book has a new look! A dedicated section in Achievements windows! So much love for us title collectors this patch! <3 Needless to say this is my favorite part of the Kali patch. <3
(… okay, one of my few favorite parts. There are other things I like to, like the updates to Guardian Force…. But that’s not the focus now!)

I’m really undecided about dedicating time and efforts into a Kali character. Not that it’s a bad class, I personally really like Dark Summoner… but my poor Majesty just got to level 50 (yes I’m that much of a slowpoke) and I still have so much to do with her (like raids, PVP or ladder…)

Just because I can doesn’t mean I should. My 2nd experience of trying to play DN with the Playstation Dualshock 3 controller is very interesting, but I’ll stick with keyboard and mouse.
The movement is better than during my 1st experience, probably due to different driver/software used. Still, the dungeon run is as disastrous as before. Maybe I need more practice. But I think I’ll drown in my own frustrations first.
Camera rotation is one speed only, so that’s problem number 1. The amount of skills slots means combination keys have to be used (for example L1 + Square button) so trying to fire off the right skill while moving out of harm’s way is problem number 2.
Good thing I’m use a Majesty. My sister was telling me how it would be quite complicated trying to get it working with an Acrobat.
Point of the experiment was, I could get it to work. But I wouldn’t play DN with a controller unless I am able to get round the above problems.
For those interested, this is the method that I used to get PS3 controller working with my computer (yes it is primarily for emulators, shhh). I tried Motion In Joy before but the uninstalling part gave me headaches.
