Arrgh, first I get excited about the newly announced DualShock 3/Sixaxis controller and the fact that it will support most of the existing games via software update and all new games. Then I see that it is launching in Japan this November and North America Spring 2008???? WTF? This is a controller, there is no localization, no region codes, no nothing...is this just a supply decision??? Arrggh!

Oh and Playstation Home is delayed till Spring 2008 as well? Crap on a stick, Home was one of the reasons I bought a PS3...cripeys, at least I still have Eye of Judgment on pre-order at EB games and a StarWars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron PSP bundle reserved for launch day...

A guess it could be a worse time to be a gamer...

A belated but heartfelt Rest in Peace goes to Robert Jordan, writer of a few (very good) Conan books (where I first discovered him) and more notably the Wheel of Time series. He passed away on September 16th 2007 and as I read the fan community writing about their thoughts of him and his books it made me look back at his works and how they affected me. I started reading the Wheel of Time series when I was in High School (15 years ago), I purposely waited until book three assuming it would be a trilogy, nope, it stretched to 12 books (and was rumored to be ending with the 13th book, which was a number of significance in the series). While the series had some major missteps around books 8 and 9 in my opinion (deceased characters returning from the dead even though there where too many foils/bad guys already, books focusing on annoying characters with no advancement and actions by the lead character that had me yelling at the pages) I still remember them very fondly and regard the series…
