Title: System updates suck
Posted: November 18, 2008 (01:37 AM)
I'm so tired of system updates, particularly on the PSP. That system just doesn't see many new game releases. It's mostly just multi-platform stuff that almost no one cares about or maybe a game or two a month that anyone gives a fig about.

This month, that game is Star Ocean: First Departure. I've had it for a bit, but tonight I finally took it out of the shrink wrap and settled down to enjoy playing it.

Then I discovered that my wife had been using the PSP and had let the battery die. So I found where she left the charger, plugged it in next to my bed--where I was going to play it, because that's what handheld systems are for--and turned on the power. After resetting date and time, the game started to load.

Then it was time to update to version 4.05 or whatever. Seriously, every time I play a new game on this system, I have to load an update. I guess it's because I only play new(ish) games. But still, it's kind of ridiculous. In this case, it was a huge pain in the butt because with my battery still low, it won't let me start the update.

So basically, the update is holding my gaming session hostage. I have to wait for everything to recharge before I can start playing. In other words (as I look at the clock and see that it's now 12:44 AM)... not tonight. Maybe I'll read some Agatha Christie instead.

Could be worse. You could be stuck with an N-Gage.
