Checkpoint: No PS3 Betas Edition

So many betas are happening on the PlayStation 3. All of them are first party exclusives, but that’s not the point. The point is that I’m not part of any of this early access fun. Here’s a list of PS3 betas which are happening right now:

  • SOCOM: Confrontation
  • LittleBigPlanet (EU so far..)
  • Home
  • Killzone 2 (EU invite-only beta)
  • Resistance 2 (closed beta)

Five PS3 betas are more-or-less happening right now and I’m not participating in any of them. Sucks? Yes, but it’s not worth being bitter over. After all, I do have WipEout HD to play and that is just digital excellence.

Speaking of WipEout HD, be sure to check out G.A.M.E. 3.0, it’s a great addition to the WipEout HD soundtrack. It’s a great album with or without WipEout HD, though:

I’m listening to G.A.M.E. 3.0 (sans WipEout HD) for the second time now and this album is definitely the best of the trio thus far. The direction of the composition as whole is in line with what I enjoy most about electronica: it takes you for a ride.

There’s a definite sense of a journey and progress to the mixes where I could shut my eyes and envision the beats flowing through a Zone level. I absolutely adore the pace! Whereas previous G.A.M.E albums dwelled on a singular feeling or emotion (definitely 2.0), 3.0 takes me from track to track in such a crazy journey of digitized awesome. Thanks again!

P.S – I honestly can’t pick out just a handful of tracks to highlight. I could do so for the previous, but this album just has a lot of great tracks in it.

That’s what I posted on GAF and its all true. I will be spending more time with WipEout HD and hopefully collect my thoughts on it and throw it into a review. It’s pretty much given that it will be a positive review. I will also be playing through The Answer of Persona 3 FES or Castle Crashers this weekend. Oh, and PixelJunk Eden. A lot of little games.

Here’s an update on my Dell Inspiron Mini 9 situation. It’s not great. Long story short: my original orders were cancelled and I had to make another. Now I’m waiting for a Dell to ship my Dell Mini 9 on or before Nov. 1, 2008. Fortunately, I’m in no rush. In fact, I guess I should be grateful to Dell for saving me $23 since I was able to choose the Ubuntu version with 512 MB of RAM. (I don’t need the 1 GB stick because I’ll be upgrading to 2 GB anyways.)

So that’s. That’s all. Check my Twitter.
