    I'm no expert on Amy, but she has had a history of drug and alcohol problems. Back when she was more popular stateside, she was plastered all over the news media about her addictions. Lots of people criticized her for writing a song about going to rehab, yet she herself would not go into one. With that being said, we can only assume that her cause of death was by drug overdose/alcohol poisoning. What are your thoughts about this?

    I use a ps3 controller as a gamepad, once you install the drivers no issues at all

    Oh wow, good steal! Cheaper than the $24.99 I found it on Amazon for too. I haven't noticed any peeling away or scratching of my controller. I guess you got one of the bad batches of the controllers?

    Heh, I just nabbed one at Staples for $22.49 on clearance. I have to say it's pretty good, though is your finishing sort of cheap? The silver stuff is scratching off almost immediately after purchase.

    Oh, just double click your image and it'll let you set size, allignment, etc.

    Hmmm I will look into the tag cloud.

    I didn't even know how to add the full size image to this....I just clicked on the insert image button and uploaded each file. Surprised at the resolution the DSi has though, it said when I uploaded the images that they were in 640 x 480. That's like around 1 megapixel I believe isn't it?

    Hmmm, I still can't manage to edit my tag cloud. I only see an option to edit what blog category this belongs to.

    Needless to say they could be better, but how you've set up the thumbnails rather than full pictures made me not even realize it was from a DSi.

    And I've updated the tags system, you should be fine now.

    I know this will sound bad as a tip, but even if you forget something or got something wrong, don't say it explicitly. Either revise it later (ideal), ignore it, or deny it (not ideal). As a reviewer, you want to have some sort of authority, and missing something only undermines it. To show some authority in your writing, confidence is good, but even a tiny bit of arrogance will work.
    Thanks, PV, good to hear some feedback! I ordered it from Amazon when it was out of stock so maybe that's why the price was just $24.99? It got added to my order 2 days after I added it to my shopping cart though. As for the delay, I noticed almost none. Spiral Knights is intense because I was on a solo mission by myself and was swarmed by 8 enemies at once, and never experienced lag between me pushing the button and seeing the action on screen.

    I'll revise this review so I don't leave out pictures. As for the photo quality, how do you think it is? I took them from my friend's DSi because I thought it'd turn out better than using the webcam on my MacBook.

    And really random but howcome I have 7 tags on this post? I thought the max was 5 but for some reason my last 2 tags from when I made a blog post still appear. Is there any way you could delete those 2 extra because it won't let me edit the tags.

    Definitely not surprising.

    Her drug problems led to her demise. She should have just gone to rehab.
