I have become Judas
January 03, 2007

I stared down at my beloved PS2 with a heavy heart. I had just finished a session of Okami gameplay, and in the latter partof it, the PS2 began making strange, disturbing noises. The PS2 in question, which has been named Quincy in past years, has been a faithful servant the past two years. However, it seems it is time for me to get a new one. I sighed again as this thought ran through my head.

I had to trade in my PS2. My Quincy.

Before I set out to the GameStop,I picked Quincy up and hugged him, telling him what a good little PS2 he's been for about ten minutes. He's an older model, too; one of the big, bulky ones. I was surprised he lasted this long, but the fact remained that I had to trade him in while he still worked.

I took him to the local GameStop, where the manager told me he was worth $35. I took it anyway and watched with despair as the clerk took Quincy away and packed him under the desk. I couldn't get a new one then, though, because they were out. >_O

After regailing this tale to a friend of mine, she asked me if I got my thirty pieces of silver for trading Quincy in. When I told her the trade value was $35, she proclaimed Quincy a Jesus PS2, and I was Judas. ;_;

I'll miss you, Quincy. I'll miss you.

In other news, I have created a deviantart account. (unethusiastic hurrah) I only have two things up,for lack of a scanner and internet. But my TCC art-buddy Kaje lets me use it, so it's not all that bad. I've also gotten Phoenix Wright: Ace Attourney, Animal Crossing DS, and the first Devil May Cry. My library of games is growing by the day, and it makes me a little happy.

Not so much to let me forget Quincy, though.

Kaje is letting me use her old PS2, so I'm not going without playing any PS2 games. But whenever I put in a CD it can't read,I always think, "Quincy could do this..." :(

I think that's all for now.

Oh yeah, I beat Okami. It has wonderful replay value.

Ja

My PS2 turned 6 in November. 1 DRE from when I put Devil May Cry 2 off center (meaning half of the disc was tilting up). Only froze twice - both times during Final Fantasy X-2 while using the Samurai class skill Fireworks in the same boss fight. I think I bought one during a short period of time where PS2s production didn't suck.

I bought one on the day Twisted Metal: Black entered stores, and that's the first game I got. The system had to be blown out with an air compressor once (I didn't send it to Sony for the procedure) but has otherwise treated me fine up to this point. I've since purchased a slim PS2 with a mod chip, but both units continue to be used periodically.

It makes me sad that I had to part with Quincy-Jesus, but I am happy that I got a new, slim, silver PS2. The name for it is still pending, though.

Call it EmP!

Not enough things are called EmP!

That's okay... I've already found a name for it.

Are you ready?
