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.

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.

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.
