Sony Move: NOT impressed :p

I had the opportunity to try out the PS3 Move at a mall and damn I am so not impressed. At the core, all they did was copy Wii's hardware technique and other than a few minor differences, works almost the exact same way with pretty much the same weaknesses inherent in this technique. Sony has totally lost this one.

The Wii works by having a camera sensor and the motion balance sensors in the controller and the navigation lights at the TV. The Move works by having the camera at the TV but having the motion sensor and navigation light in the controller. So all the Move did was switch the position of the light and the camera. Wii owners will NOT be impressed.

The attendee at the mall said "unlike the Wii, you really have to move your body!" I went to a tennis game and employed the cheat of just moving the hand and wrist to swing the racquet and it sure worked. So much for that claim. :p Also using the Move controller to move through a menu system is a very imprecise job which can lead to quick frustration for some people. And unlike the Wii remote, there's no joypad controller already on there so you've got to go grab the default PS3 controller if you rather do things old school.

No DX Bravers for me

After having studied my Ke-tai Sousakan min-pla models, I'm glad I didn't buy any of the DX toys. The mini-pla share similar characteristics with the DX toys and based on that I can tell the DX toys would be clunky and not as much fun to play around with as a figma or TF figure. What's worse, the LED faces prevent the DX Bravers from being display pieces. The only DX I'm interested in is Medic but I don't think it's worth it without a Phone Braver and those are definitely not worth it. So looks like I'm going to give up on the toy series, too bad.

We are riding, riding, riding...

Lots of pictures to show off. Shinkis on their rides, BRS figma and Nendo, fun stuff. If you visit my other haunts, you've probably seen them already.

First up is Partio and Pomock on the 3-wheeler Ex:ride.

She is her own tank...

I don't know why but PB's giving me grief today so for now I'm using Flickr instead. I've opened up Busou Shinki Zelnograd. She's nice but arms are kinda lose at the upper arm socket which makes it a bit of a pain when getting her to hold up her big gun. And does she have a big gun.

Zelnograd in a GI Joe Armored Panther tank. I got the tank because it looked like it might fit a Shinki and I was right. :D I also have another vehicle which I'll open up later and see if it fits as well.

I've also tried out my Kagura Hinata dakimakura cover. It's definitely one of the smoother covers of my dakimakura covers but I still like the Haruka daki the best as far as feel (too bad it's also the most wrinkly :p).


Here's my dakimakura ranking for comfort & feel: Haruka, Hakata, Hinata, Minato, Momoyo, Saki.
As far as how they look though: Momoyo, Haruka, Saki, Hinata, Minato, Hakata.

I also got a dakimakura cover that came as a Sofmap bonus for getting Para-Sol from them. Features girls with bare nipples, a first for my collection. The feel seems to be about the same as the Saki covers though so it's unlikely I'll actually use that cover.
