Spring cleaning my PS3

PS3 Motherboard

A few weeks back i disassembled my PS3 to clean it up. Managed to get all the way to the heat sink then reassembled it because i did not have replacement thermal paste.

But last week i got hold of some Artic Cooling MX-4

So disassembled the PS3 fat again and replaced the thermal paste this time. Hope this wards of the dreaded YLOD for a good long time.

Fallout 3

Fallout 3 is an action role-playing game released by Bethesda Game Studios, and is the third major game in the Fallout series.20090602_fallout_3_cover_art

Fallout 3 takes place in the year 2277, 36 years after the setting of Fallout 2 and 200 years after the nuclear war that devastated the game’s world in an alternate post-World War II timeline.The game places the player in the role of an inhabitant of Vault 101, a survival shelter designed to protect a small number of humans from the nuclear fallout. When the player’s father disappears under mysterious circumstances, the player is forced to escape from the Vault and journey into the ruins of Washington D.C. to track him down. Along the way the player is assisted by a number of other human survivors and must battle a myriad of enemies that now inhabit the wasteland. The game has an attribute and combat system typical of an action role-playing game but also incorporates elements of first-person shooter and survival horror games.

The game is available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 video game consoles as well as the Windows operating system. PC version is belived to have superior graphics than that of the other two. So if you have a high end pc with graphics higher that Nvidai 8800 GTS, its best to go with the PC version of the game.

Tom Clancy's EndWar

From 2011 to 2014, the world enjoyed an unprecedented era of peace as enhanced defense technology eliminated the threat of nuclear war. It didn’t last.

By 2020, constant depletion of resources has international tensions at a breaking point. One spark will ignite what no one thought could ever happen … a third and final world war. World War III comes to life in Tom Clancy’s EndWar.

In EndWar players represent one of three national armies (U.S. Russia or Europe) and participate in massive multiplayer battles. EndWar can be played almost entirely by voice command and also features a customizable army, as well as the ability to fight in various battlefields and cities around the world.
