I always pegged you for two copies of Oblivion, but two 360s?  :shock:

I thought I had enough karma accrued that I would have possibly won a console with every10minutes.  But then you - someone that ALREADY was getting a system - won?!  I hate life.

I also had one preordered at my local Gamestop (since Mid-May), but I think I will just cancel that one, since I really don't want to go to the midnight thing anyway.

As for how I am getting this one...well, that is a story best left for another day....   Cool

 Ouch. Well, no... but it`s bad. Sorry to hear all of that, I really am. It does seem that unfortunately almost everyone does have alot of bad stories frown .
 We`ve spent over $10,000 on a young dog and he is doing better, which is great Tongue . Then we really didn`t have the funds to help out our kitten (18 months old) that we had to put down a few weeks ago. The money it would`ve costed was really up there, and there wasn`t a very good chance he would have made it even with the operation. Also, the problem is known to come back. And that`s only a tiny bit of my issues... frown
 But, I was only joking about the 360 as you know :wink: , and we are hear to talk about games and games systems damnit! :twisted: . On another side note, a good one, that`s a really nice site you have crayolasmoker. Nice clean look to it.

Wasn't trying to belittle your problems or anything, Harpua  I'm of the opinion that you can cry about the shit life deals you, or you can laugh about it.  The latter is far more fun.  I'm lucky in that this is one of the ones that's laugh-at-able.  The loss of loved ones, even when they're pets, rarely falls into that category.  Hope things get better for you.

Re: the site's looks - Thanks.  I'm really fond and proud of it.  Spent a month or so before I started the nursing program designing and programming it.  One of these days, I'd like to make another one.  Maybe www.HetzismyBFFcausehegavemeanXbox360.com?  :wink:

Well, I guess I can let you all know how I got this Xbox 360.

My sister lives in Canada right now. It turns out that she won the Be First To Play Contest, but never told me that she did. She got the system she won on Monday, but since she really doesn't care all that much about games, she had decided to give it to me for my Christmas gift this year, since she knew how much I wanted one. She actually didn't know that I won the everytenminutes thing either, since I never told her that.

So I get a call on Monday from her telling me to be on the lookout for a package on Wednesday and that it was my early Christmas gift. Needless to say, I have an amazing sister!   biggrin

I should have it today around 10:30AM. I took the rest of the week off of work and games should be getting into my local Gamestop today and tomorrow!

I'll have impressions of the system and at least Kameo this afternoon.

Also check out my Xbox 360 gamercard today, it will show you my accomplishments and basicly what I am doing on my Xbox 360 in real time.

Wow Dragon Quest 8 and an Xbox 360 in one day! I am in gamer heaven.....well the only thing that could make this better is if Oblivion would have made it out on time! Damn you Bethesda!!!!!   :wink:

Oh BTW, the EB where I live is refusing to sell any of the games until the 22nd.  :roll:

When I asked him why, cause Gamestop, Circuit City, Toys R US and Best Buy would all be selling them by Thursday at the latest (I called and asked them all),  the stupid punk on the other end told me "nobody will have the system until then, so why do you care if we don't sell the games until the 22nd?" in a very cocky voice.

I should go down there with my XBox 360 today and laugh in his face.   biggrin

No, I'll be playing Madden/PGR3/NBA Live and Condemed all by tomorrow at the latest. Gamestop, which had no problems with selling the games early has them all reserved for me to pick up. Perfect Dark Zero should also be in tomorrow. So.... Tongue

Also, Circuit City will be selling tomorrow, per their Sunday ad.

I was just watching the latsest Madden video available at:

http://www.easports.com/madden06/xbox360.jsp

and one thing the dev said during the movie was that the helmets in Madden 360 have the same polycount as the ENTIRE PLAYER in the current gen Madden!

Wow. I can't wait to play this one tomorrow....

You owe her a HUGE Christmas gift with tons of thought put into it.   So sell your extra one and do something REALLY special for her.   Hell...with 500 bucks, send her on vacation.

I think we've hit on why Madden sucks. It'd be nice if the game play was that detailed and focused on as well. slywink

BTW, Devil I tried to add you to my friends list in Xbox Live and it said your friends list was full!

Also, the dashboard is a MILLION ZILLION times better than the Xbox Dashboard. It is really incredible, especially how you can see what all your friends are doing, what level they are on while they are playing a game, comapre achievements etc....it's really impressive.

Anyway, I'm on my way out the door now. Full impressions of at least Kameo, Madden and PGR3 tonight, along with the system.
