Welcome to the Lasombra Files, PSU’s weekly hit program. Follow the story of Lasombra and V as they try to stay alive in Shadow City, unraveling its secrets, while at the same time shining the spotlight on Trophy hunters around the world and in our community.
A week passes as V and I are demoted to remedial reporting. From clown rodeos, women’s mud wrestling, elementary school recitals, Mayoral speeches, and worst of all…shudders...traffic duty, whoever is pulling the Boss’s strings definitely wants to try and break our spirit. I’ll never criticize O’Bannon again for his traffic reporting. Who knew you got so many death threats for only reporting the early morning traffic. Don’t people realize I am not Scotty and can’t beam the cars to their destination? In the little spare time I get from moving from gig to gig as if I were as green as an Orion slave girl, I manage to track down the source Captain Li wanted me to contact. Thank you year 2012 and our new age technology called Skype in Episode 16: The Finnish Flash. Yes people, we do have picture phones…mobile picture phones in the future. One quick call to Finland to set-up a meeting with this mysterious contact and we’ll be one step closer to solving this mystery…if only our internet was working…Great, now to spend money on over inflated long distance charges.

Lasombra: How long have you been gaming?
Spyrde: I'm a fairly new guy to gaming, as you can see from my age. I really got into gaming in the PS2 era as a kid so I've been playing for around 10 years or so. I've introduced myself to some older systems as well later on though.
Lasombra: How did you find PSU?
Spyrde: I used to hang out in the Gametrailers forums, but I really didn't like the community that much and I wanted a forum that focused more on PS3 so it wasn't hard to find this place.
Lasombra: Are you solely a Sony gamer this generation or do you split your time between multiple systems?
Spyrde: Solely a Sony gamer, got no reasons to get other systems right now. The future is open though, I'm not a fanboy so I pick the system that suits me the best and go with that. Sony's been the better one for me so far.
Lasombra: What do you like about the community at PSU that keeps bringing you back for more?
Spyrde: The community is very tight and it kinda feels like everyone knows everybody. The amount of positivity and helpful people is beyond anything I've seen at other forums! Also the warmth between the staff and the members is amazing. If you have anything you want to discuss you just put up a thread and it's guaranteed you'll get a good discussion of it. Even if arguments break out they are usually very civilized and people here seem to have built some mutual respect for one another. I know I have.
Lasombra: In your opinion, what needs to be done to help the community to grow bigger and better?
Spyrde: I think the forum layout needs a bit more work, as it's a bit strange and some parts are hard to use. The system back in the day worked fantastic and I'm sure others agree with this as well.
Lasombra: Do you have any gaming goals for this year?
Spyrde: Just to get back into it more. As a busy student I have a lot on my to-do-list constantly, so gaming has really been on the sidelines for me. I've been getting back into some older games that I've missed, for example I picked up Bioshock a few weeks back because I really felt like I missed out on one epic series. I was thinking of picking up Dead Space soon as well, as that's another title I've missed for some reason.
Lasombra: Are you a trophy hunter, and what do you think about trophies overall?
Spyrde: Used to be; spent hours getting plats on a few games like Fallout 3, MW2 and the Uncharteds. Kinda left trophies on the sidelines as ... (continued on next page)
