Cleaning the sticky PlayStation controller analogue thumb sticks
I've not touched my PS3 for a while and so the controller has been sitting behind the TV gathering dust so it was a surprise to me when I took it out that both of the analogue thumb sticks were really sticky. I've not spilled anything on the controller and it was always kept in a good clean condition. After some searching around it appears that this happens to quite a few people.

New Nintendo 3DS XL, R4i SDHC RTS Lite and DSDoom
I recently bought a Nintendo 3DS XL and of course I just had to order an R4 (R4i SDHC RTS in my case) cartridge so that I could play none other but DSDoom. Due to the age of some of these projects there were scarce details on how to get that working so it took quite a bit of searching around and trial and error but in the end I had Doom running on my 3DS!

Where to find the last item (Robbie's lost lyrics) in GravityFalls Lake level
If you've been playing Gravity Falls on the 3DS chances are you've been trying to find all of the lost items in the game. I've managed to find all of them but this particular item, Robbie's lost lyrics, has eluded me for the longest time. It's found in the Lake level of the game.

Chapter closed - Eve Online Monument visit in Reykjavík, Iceland
I've played Eve Online for a good four years and have been planning to visit the Eve Online Monument for probably just as many years after I stopped playing Eve. Living in Australia made it hard to visit Iceland but I finally was able to close the Eve Online chapter of my life and see the Monument while we were on our round the world trip.

Improving slow download speeds on the PS4 and PSN
I always tend to play catch up with the games I get as presents on PlayStation so the usual course of events when starting a new game is to wait for the update to finish downloading. Sometimes this can be quite a long wait, going into expected download times of longer than 24 hours.
