"Your power’s out, your PS3 shuts off; what do you do?"
you get the hell outta there. That's what you should be doing when a hurricane is bearing down on you.

In all honesty, this has to be one of the most original reasons behind a "top" list I have seen. It's as funny as Rick springfields new album: songs for the end of the world.

dont believe me??? here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/Songs...

dboi787  +   1123d ago
Yeah I should have done a runner up list. That, Dokuro and DJMax were also in my mind. Glad you liked it though!

I live in NYC and i have been playing Resistance Burning Skies, Little Big Planet and Playstation All Stars beta since yesterday.
dboi787  +   1123d ago
Good choices, though I wasn't a fan of Burning Skies. Fan of Resistance though, so props to ya! Stay safe

it has gotten better after the last update, i've been having a blast playing with my nephew online.

Be safe man. Resistance: Burning Skies seems an appropriate title for what you're about to go through.

Allthe barrier islands I live near seem to bne completely flooded so if your only ablock away I think your gonna have some serious problems.

republicans say it's OK. There's no such thing as climate change. It's in your imagination. You be piss off. When you have water above your knees in your living room, or if the house starts floating away with your X-box, PS3, and your mother.

Absolutely, Sandy is George Bush's fault...

Hurricanes definitely didn't happen before people started messing with the environment. Good evidence work, detective! It's a good thing we have rational people like you to blame global warming every time a natural disaster strikes!

If you kept up, you'd know that the discussion was the extent of human involvement in climate change, not whether or not climate ever changes. Seeing as the climate has been changing for earth's entire existence.

For example, the medieval times were estimated to have been generally warmer than today. But I'm sure you'll blame conservatism for that somehow, too.

Why are you shocked that the NE is seeing flooding? They didn't build well for flooding/hurricanes. This is like New Orleans all over again....you have a levee built for force 3 that breaks under a force 5....and then everyone plays the blame game. "The destruction of a reinforced concrete wall was really loud! It must have been George bush bombing it!"

Don't think there's enough battery life for you to get in 5 good long gaming sessions with the Vita.
Omar91  +   1123d ago
well that would be perfect but the problem is my vita is suppose to come in tuesday...and it seems like everyone even the UPS workers are off.. so no vita for me until who knows when.
jetlian  +   1123d ago
I hope mines coming tomorrow got the protective case today and uncharted due in on friday. Bout to order ragnarok

Im in chicago though so this may not have any effect on me.

As for the post those games dont really seem to fit. psas beta should be about over. I know it was only a few days left last time I signed on. ACL should be on here as should ragnarok.

how much video/photos can you take with the vita?

Aye up here in MI it is cold as f**k!! Mad blistery as well.. I mean squirrels are getting blown around.. We're getting some of those winds I presume from the storm out east. Hey gamers I hope each and everyone of yall that maybe affected by this hurricane is in a safe place and out of harm's way. If you are but dealing with limited power, then hunker down with those games mayne (hope that you're fully charged up tho), Peace

Good list but AC3 Liberation should totally be on here. It comes out tomorrow and that's when I'm expected to lose power.
MattyG  +   1123d ago
No power! Time to finish some Vita games! Woot woot.
Niyari2  +   1123d ago
Aren't more burglars around when people evacuate?
rpd123  +   1123d ago
Only if they're dumb enough to stick around. I remember in Katrina all the looters thought they were so clever, stealing flatscreens and all sorts of expensive merchandise. Days later they probably realized they should've gone for the water bottles and canned goods first.

You guys don't have a car charger or something for your vita and other devices? Of course safety first and everything to all the good people.
