Leaving the Realm of Normal Human Interaction

The Sony PSP 2000 delivers a lot that Nintendo DS Lite was supposed to have, but doesn't actually. Big, wide screen... for a handheld. Nice graphics in a tiny box. Good games, occasionally playful, brilliant games. Strange extras, like a web browser and an online Sony store that is too much power to put in the hands of adults, let alone children.

I bought mine used for $109. Feels tinky and plastic clacky. But it plays Final Fantasy II and the Star Ocean re-issues. Fun stuff, but very autistic-seeming. You can lose yourself in tiny worlds and forget to join your living, breathing family members around the hearthfires.

Terry Pratchett's Unseen Academicals is out. My biggest beef is the American cover is (once again) crap.

Starts a bit slow. I'll keep you posted.
