November Haul #3
Another batch of no anime throughout the past week. I was anticipating a UP1 haul but it surprisingly didn't ship out on time. As I'm also on holiday starting today until Friday, any parcels that do appear I won't be able to sort out until the weekend.
Bitmap Books have recently released their latest book in their video game history batch, this time focusing on first-person shooters from 1992 up until 2002 (the reason for this range is because they can cover 2003+ as separate books over time).
I'm Too Young to Die
is a reference to one of the difficulty modes in the classic DOOM franchise and this book also features various games including id Software's Quake, 3D Realms' Duke Nuken 3D, iconic film franchises that had games like Alien and James Bond, Bungie's Halo & Marathon, and more.
It's really good and it's laid out in a different format to the other books because it looked better for the photos they have. You can order one over at Bitmap Books
Next we have a Black Friday item from Amazon. This is the WD_BLACK SN850X M.2 SSD 1TB drive
for the PlayStation 5. I wanted more storage space and I figured now was time so that I can get more backlog downloaded/installed.
Won't lie, the PS5 faceplates are a lot more tedious than the video tutorials will make you think. The trick that I found with putting the plate back on was looking at the top corner where you can see the two circles (and where they're supposed to be slotted). Once I noticed that, putting more pressure into slotting it back in (even if it looks like you're going to break it) was the way to re-attach it.
And that's it. As I mentioned I do have more parcels incoming due to delays, but there is another Discotek batch incoming so stay tuned.
