Flying to England Apr. 2nd, 2005 @ 03:57 PM Reply

In a few hours I'll be flying out to England, where I'll be staying with James and visiting with our European publisher for Alien Hominid. I'll be back in Philly on April 8th! In the meantime, I will be checking email very sporadically - people who email me while I'm out of town are most likely to not get a response, since I get extremely backed up while I'm traveling.

When we won three awards at the Independent Game Festival, each award came with a PSP. I have one of them with me and I'm excited to play Lumines on the plane (I got totally hooked at the Gamespot office). However, I'm disappointed that I wasn't able to find any spare PSP batteries this past week; none of the stores I went to carried them. I was wondering if there is a Sony camera battery that might be universal, but no one at EB or Best Buy knows about that sort of thing and I never bothered doing any on-line research. I wish Sony had made spare batteries more readily available since the PSP won't last the entire flight on a single battery. I should spend some time reading anyway, though.

Unlike the Vegas trip, I'll try to take a lot of pictures this time out and put together a page with highlights from the trip!

Did you get the email I sent you the other day?

Cool, take some pics of spotted dick (lame joke, so sorry).


Your reply to this isn't going to be clever or witty, so just put down the internet and go outside.

I bet 90% of the pictures taken involve Tom with some form a alchohol in his hand. The man's insatiable when it comes to the stuff.

Hey Tom, I was asking. Why don't you come to Montreal and do a congress or something? I'm sure that Ubisoft's director would be happy to meet you.

Montreal, Canada. Your next destination :)

sony is planning to release a better, longer-lasting battery for the PSP, but it probably won't be released in a few hours. :) you can do other things than just play a PSP, though. i'm really jealous though. i'm totally broke and i don't have a job, so i can't get myself a PSP. it just looks so awesome, despite all the reported problems. if you're not happy with it, sell it to me, alright? :)

I second that!
But we need to find a proper festival and right now, I can't think of any...
Any ideas?
