on sunday, i thought my world collapsed. as i told many of you, my beloved ps3 had a heart attack and almost died. i have been dreading this day for a while. when it happened, i was filled with ennui, despite the fact that everyone around me continuously reminded me it wasn’t an actual death. friends, family, boss man, co-workers, the boyfriends … everyone was a little wtf about it.
it was kind of like a death. or a – spoiler!- close call. i depend on my ps3. it’s a date night hub, playing movies whilst one of the boyfriends and are on the couch. it’s my therapist, when i pop in call of duty after a tough day and gun down as many bitches as possible. given i don’t have cable, its internet browser capabilities is my tv. it’s my muthaeffing life, yo.
when it broke, i didn’t actually cry but i was adrift to say the least. i was anxious, partly due to the fact that the ps3 had its episode of cardiac arrest and was clinging to the assassin’s creed 2 disc. i got the ‘In Memory of Petruccio’ trophy, and synced it. the next day, i got the ‘Show your Colors’ trophy. i felt pretty smug, since i had almost all the pieces of subject 16’s problems. platinum trophy was almost mine. then the whole red light death thing happened and i was scared. was its life flashing before its eyes? could it hear me, begging it to stay with me? the ps3 is too young to die!!
i called captainadventure, one of the most technical girls i know. she recommended this place on yonge street, called gamerama. haven’t heard of toronto’s gamerama? let me tell you something about these people. let me drop some knowledge on you. they are miracle workers. they are saints. they are captains of industry. they are people who i owe a debt of gratitude. they fixed it. i got everything back.
they don’t have a web site, which is unfortunate. what they do have is a treasure trove of toronto video game accessories, video game selection, etc. they have knowledgable repair people. they have decent prices. I LOVE THEM. and to put it in perspective for you all, i also love puppies, robert downey jr and a good workout [or robert downey jr giving me a good workout. hey-oh!]. it’s ok. there are many different types of love. no one need panic.
anyway. first thing i did when i got a chance was sync the trophies – and wrote this post. from the bottom of my strange little heart, thank you, gentlemen of gamerama.
