Some new tech & new games...

Today I received a few games and gadgets in the mail.

  • The HAVA Platinum HD PVR. This little gadget allows me to record game play footage (and screen shots) from my consoles. It's a cheapy version that really only supports 480p (and barely that) but when I scale down the Xbox 360 and PS3 it does a reasonably good job of displaying content and UI elements. The Wii works great with it as it is natively 480p anyhow. I'm going to use this to capture screen shots for some articles I am writing.
  • Jericho and Eternal Sonata arrived via Gamefly. I'm not hugely excited about either game -- but the former is good research for some projects I'm working on and the latter might turn out to be a fun jRPG (I really liked Enchanted Arms and Blue Dragon even though their achievements were lame).
