Well, I hope everyone's been keeping warm (or if you're in a warm climate, keeping cool). I'm back from visiting my family for Christmas, and it's nice to get back into the swing of things. It was really great to spend time with the family, though. It'll probably be a while before I eat such well-prepared meals again.

Well, I put in my notice at work. I gave three weeks advance notice since the office will be closed for Christmas a few days this next week, so I'll be at my new job the second week of January. Exciting!

But what isn't all that exciting (to me, anyway) is this post update. Only a few things to add, and none are all that amazing. I guess Dragon Ball is alright. {shrug}

I rarely share anything that isn't a normal freebie, but I tried the demo of that Indivisible game, and I definitely recommend checking it out. It's technically still in prototype, so they could potentially overhaul a lot before it's done, but it's pretty neat so far. The only thing I had a problem with was the steep difficulty ramp when I got to the statue boss.

This week there are a handful of avatars, a couple PS+ exclusive goodies, and probably the only thing I care to check out, myself: a new free theme. If only they'd bring back the PS3's custom wallpapers instead of selling them to us...

December 2016 PS Plus Games

  December 2016

None of this months PS Plus games really excite me... but that's probably just because I haven't heard of any of them. I'm behind the times, y'all. I've had VVVVVV on my computer forever, though. So I guess that counts for something.

Hey, check it out: some new free themes. I don't know what Indivisible is, but that theme looks really nice. The Resident Evil one... not so much. But everyone has their own tastes—check them both out and see if you like them.  =)
Also, as in the past, there are pinball add-ons that have "demo" in the name but that aren't categorized in the PS Store as demos. So I've listed them here. Feel free to ignore them.

PlayStation Live Stream Prizes

So you want the prizes (PS4 themes, sweepstakes entries) for this year's PlayStation Live stream, but you don't want to watch people gab on and on about Call of Duty and Knack... Rather than pointlessly run the stream on mute in the background (which didn't even work for me, btw), you can just tell the web page that you've completed the required viewing to unlock the prizes:

Note: I tried to make these steps as verbose as possible for someone who hasn't messed with a web page debugger before, but it could be possible I didn't explain simply enough for a novice. Feel free to post a comment if you need better guidance.

Note: If you've done web page debugging before, I'm probably a little more wordy than you need, but I'm sure you'll get it figured out. You can, of course, use another browser's debugger if you want. I just wrote instructions for Chrome since it's my main.

1. On a computer (not mobile device), use Google Chrome to log into your PSN account at

2. Wait for the page to load (video plays) and then click on the Quests tab (bottom of the page under the chat box section), and then press F12 to get to the debugger.

3. Click on the Elements tab at the top of the debugger.

4. Press Ctrl+F (to find/search) and type: quest-wrapper

5. Next to the search box (below the section with page code and above the "Console" section), press the down arrow button to get to the first instance of:
<div class="quest-wrapper

6. You should see 11 lines that say:
<div class="quest-wrapper" OR <div class="quest-wrapper failed"

7. Double-click on the first "quest-wrapper", and after the word wrapper add a space and the word completed (or replace failed with completed if it's there) like this:
<div class="quest-wrapper completed"
Press Enter.

8. In the web page (not the debugger), scroll down the quest box, and the first quest should now have a button you can click to claim your prize and get a theme code.

9. In the debugger, double-click the next line with "quest-wrapper" in it and make the same change, repeating steps 7&8 for each remaining prize. Note: you'll notice the first line now says claimed instead of completed.

Again, if this is unclear at all, you're welcome to post a comment below, and I can try to help you get through whatever step you're getting stuck on.

Oof, this weekend was too short. For me, anyway. Well, it's just another manic Monday, and I hope the impending holidays/travel/final exams don't have you in too much of a tizzy.
In the mean time, here are a few new things you can add to your PSN library. I'm not sure why that goofy robot avatar got a duplicate... but it is, in fact, a separate PSN store listing, so I've added it here.

This will certainly be fixed soon, so get it now if you want it.
"Buy" the free demo first, and then the listing for the full game will be free.
Thanks to gibbed for the heads-up.

No donations needed, but thank you.

I've had a number of people message me asking about donations and such. To those who've reached out to me about this, Thank you! 

Below are my answers to some questions I've received. If you don't read any further on this post, just know that I don't need donations but that I do plan on continuing to post updates here for the foreseeable future.

Do you make money from this blog?

Do you have a donation link for PayPal, Google Wallet, etc.?
No. Well... yes, I do have a link. But no, I'm not going to post it on this site.

Are you going to add ad banners?
No. I have no plans to add any kind of advertisements to this site. I'm sure it's simpler than I think in my head, but that's not the point of this blog.

Are the URLs referral/affiliate links?
No. I wish. I use Google's service to shorten the PlayStation Store's links for one reason: so the links don't break. I know there are folks who re-share links from here to forums (which I think is great!), and I know that forums often choke when parsing PSN links that have apostrophes and other "special" characters in them. That's all there is to it. Also, I don't think the PSN even has an affiliate program.

How can I show my appreciation if you won't take donations?
I wouldn't mind continuing to simply see appreciative PMs or seeing "thanks" comments on my posts. If you're dead set on contributing monetarily, please consider making a donation to one of the charitable organizations below instead. They'll make far better use of your contributions than I ever could.

If you shop on Amazon, you can bookmark and use my affiliate link ( when visiting the site, and a portion of your purchase will go to one of the charities I support. This will not increase the cost of your Amazon order.

Please consider donating here! Even $1 helps.

I never know what the deal is with the pinball games. Is it a F2P game? Is it a demo? Or maybe just an add-on for a game? Well, this one's categorized as a game, so that's how I've labeled it below. If that's wrong, feel free to leave a comment deriding me.  :v

November 2016 PS Plus Games

  November 2016

This month's PS Plus games are now live. Nothing unique for the Vita—just cross-play duplicates of a couple of the PS4 offerings.

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture
Letter Quest Remastered
Pumped BMX+
The Deadly Tower of Monsters

Costume Quest 2
Pumped BMX+

Letter Quest Remastered
Pumped BMX+

I hope y'all had a fun and safe Halloween. Here's some more stuff.

To clarify the Dead or Alive item... if you own DOA5 Last Round, this DLC doesn't really do anything for you. If you've got the F2P version (Core Fighters)—or don't have the game at all yet—then this will add a fighter (Tina) to your roster for free. Offer available this month only.

DLC Add-Ons

BlazBlue: Central Fiction
Playable Character Es (PS4)

Dengeki Additional Colors (PS3)

Here are some Verdun avatars. Have a great weekend. Play some Resident Evil or P.T. (if you've still got it). Be safe, and don't eat too much candy.

Only new add-ons right now are a handful of Nep add-ons for the dozen or so of us who own a PS Vita.
It's probably just another slow, gradual Store update as usual... I still have no idea how that even works. It's like databases don't exist and someone's manually writing the web pages for each individual item.
Oh, well. Whaaatever. I'm just gonna keep posting updates.  :v

Well, PSVR is finally here? Did you drop half a grand to be an early adopter? I hope it was worth it. As curious and interested as I am, I can't justify the investment just yet—even though Thumper looks like it'd be great in VR...
In other news, the Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 open beta is available if you'd like to create a character and check it out.
