I don’t know about you guys, but in my house I have some old junk. The question is what is the best way to get rid of it? Do you donate it to charity, sell it at a garage sale, or do you go online and try to sell it off that way?
One service that I use every now and then is Craigslist, and sometimes, if you are lucky, you can get a better deal selling things locally than online. Or on the flip side, as a buyer, you maybe able to purchase things cheaper on Craigslist than on Amazon or Ebay. It just depends on what you are trying to do, and of course, timing.
So about a week ago I put an older tablet I had onto Craigslist for sale (Skypad Alpha 2). It was an OK tablet, but ever since I upgraded to the Nook HD last November, I just didn’t have a need for this extra (and slower) tablet.
Today I made a sale and actually made $10 more because the guy didn’t have a car so I decided to drive up closer to his area (about 10 mins away). He was satisfied because he got a good deal, and I was satisfied because I got rid of the old tablet.
How about you? Have you ever used Craigslist before? Let us know about your experiences and if you got any good tips.

I am a gamer, and I enjoy playing all types of games, but there is always one genre that I keep on coming back to time over time again, and its the Fighting genre.
I’m not sure why I love it so much, if its because I can pretend I am the fighter and I can perform all these special moves, or the fact that I can pummel my opponent (or get pummeled myself).
When I was growing up, I got my first taste of fighting games playing with my friends SNES console version of Mortal Kombat II. Man, do I love that game, and I still play it still to this very day on my PSP with a SNES emulator.
I literally memorized all the moves and all special fatalities of that game, and it was a huge step from from Mortal Kombat I. Since then, I’ve played almost every single Mortal Kombat game release (PS2 series sorta sucked, skipped Wii).
Yes, I’ve played other fighting games like Street Fighter II and its derivatives, Final Fight, various beat em ups, and more.
Some gamers just love RPGs and sink time into them. These days, I don’t have that kind of timing and spending a few minutes here and there in a casual fighting brawl can really help with what is otherwise considered a long day.
How about you? What type of game genres do you enjoy playing and tell us why? Thanks!

I love Rainbow Six. When I was growing up, I played all of them on the PC and I loved the tactical and strategic nature of the game. After watching the newest Rainbow Six gameplay, it literally gave me goosebumps. It’s that awesome. But you don’t need me to say that, check it out yourself.

Watch Dogs for PC was recently released, and since it is strictly a 64 bit game for Windows, you are going to have to do some extra work to get your PC USB game controller or a PS2 type controller to work properly with Watch Dogs. The basic outline of how this works is below. The download links are in the video description of the Youtube Video tutorial.
- Download latest copy of x360ce.
- Download the x64 binaries.
- Extract x360ce into the Watch Dogs main directory. Run it and configure your controller.
- Now exit the program, and copy over the x64 binaries.
- Run the game, and your game controller should be recognized.

So recently I just bought a used PS3 off of Amazon which is a 80GB fat PS3 model. Just my luck, this PS3 is the 4.55 firmware, which means that if I ever want to downgrade it to 3.55 so I can install CFW, I will need to get a hold of the E3 flasher (or find someone with E3 flasher and do it for me).
My brother used to have one of the first generation fat PS3 launch consoles that could play PS2 games, but he recently sold that off (doh!). But he was smart, he knew in the beginning not to update the firmware to the latest official version, and he was enjoying the 3.55 CFW for the longest time until work got into his way and he had just little time for gaming.
Now here I am embarking on my own PS3 adventure, and the concept of PS3 modding is interesting, but not sure if I am ready to take the plunge.
Maybe you have a PS3 and you want to take the plunge and get it modded. Did you update it to the latest firmware? If you have a compatible model, you can purchase a device called an E3 Flasher. Essentially what it does is it reflashes the NOR chip on the PS3 so you can properly downgrade it.
Depending on where you buy this online, it can range from $75 up to $125. The process seems easy, but there is a lot to do to make sure it works right. All fat PS3 are compatible, and only certain models of slim PS3 is compatible with the E3 Flasher.
If you are interested in learning more about how the E3 Flasher works, see an example Youtube tutorial video shown below:
Right now I am enjoy a few games on the PS3, so if you want to add me, my PSN name is VersatileNinja. Thanks!
