Libraries And Other Rental Services

[Whee, Scratches]
 
This is to anyone who rents games from libraries and other rental services. Please do yourself, and everyone else who rents the game after you a favour, and stop using the disks as frisbees! >_< I'm starting to get tired of getting games or music, and having to hope that it works, instead of, you know, not every getting to the logo screens for the company that produced the game. -_-
 
I could be playing Persona 4 right now, but instead, I can't even get past the 'PlayStation 2' logo screen, because it keeps just displaying a black screen after that. And since the movie I rented worked all the way through, and I can load up Mega Man X7, I know it's not the system, even if it was doing similar stuff before I even got to put the disk in. But even then, unplugging it helped there, and the main menu screen for the PS2 wouldn't even appear. Here, it loads everything, recognizes the disk, and even gets past the PS2 logo after checking the disk, but yet, it won't go any FURTHER than that. And of course, I checked the disk first... It's pretty badly scratched.
 
Basically, the entire surface has scratches that alternate rows, but go around in a circle eventually. They don't seem that deep, but when you have almost the entire surface covered because of those scratches, and the various other scratches that inevitably appear in these types of situations, it's pretty easy to know why the game won't load. Which brings up an interesting question: How did the last person who had the disk even manage to play it!? 0_o
 
Basically, take better care of your games, movies, and CDs(Even if it's not 'yours' full-time), because the next people to get it may become rather annoyed at you if the thing's unplayable. -_-'

Well, your sleepin entry and this one I both agree with and have suffered on more than one occasion.

I'm also following this blog now, because I guess I wasn't before?

And we've had some good times with TF2 (I think) and L4D2. That said, here is an approval if you care for it.

Sweet; thanks. =D And I'll hopefully try to keep relateable entries up, though no true guarantees on that.
