MagicGate shut after horse has bolted

My PS2 memory card died, taking with it various save files. I guess I was courting disaster, in that I had been using the same single memory card since I bought my first PS2 in 2002. Flash memory is great, but it only lasts for a finite number of write cycles.

Looks like I’m going to have to play all those levels of Katamari Damacy again. (Oh, the horror.)
