The Worst Luck! A story of Bioshock Infinite.


Luck has never been a good friend of mine and on the eve of the biggest video game release my PS3 ups and bricks its self.

I have been waiting for Bioshock Infinite which seems like forever, and when the time for its release was just around the corner, when Luck decided to give me a kick in the A$$. This is the second time my PS3 choked its self on a firmware update. Desperately I kept trying to do the upgrade and it kept dyeing at 99%. I took out the 750G HDD that I had in there and I put back in the original PS3 Slim 160G. The PS3 gave me the message that it couldn't find the HDD, once again I pulled it out and shoved it back in again. This time it found it, but none of the safe mode selections would work. Fed up and frustrated I called Sony, and with them we decided to send the unit to be repaired.

So... This leads me to where I am, no PS3! I will have no console till probably late next week, which the universe will be enjoying the game and gabbing about it online. Will I be insanely jealous? YES! Did I want to do a review for The Man Cave Cinema... YES!  At which point when I get the PS3 back and get underway on the game, it may be too late for a review. Once again Lady Luck will not be hanging of my arm or Elizabeth for that matter!

As to all the gamers out there, I wish you the best of luck with the game, and have a ton of fun with it, just don't rub it in, because Luck has beaten you to it!

  1. That sucks!! I know exactly how you feel! My PS3 died a few weeks back - with COD BO2 stuck inside. The only way to get it out is to break it out - all the usual tricks to remove the disk don't work. No PS3 means no Crysis 3. No Bioshock. No Battlefield 4 (coming soon). No GTA5.
