13681  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Know What Sucks about Achievements? on: December 26, 2006, 06:29:21 PM

Quote from: Autistic Angel on December 26, 2006, 06:22:55 PM

That's interesting because last week I was explaining to a friend of mine how it was possible that the Transformers could have crash landed on prehistoric Earth yet remained inactive until they were awoken in the modern age, and a little bubble appeared near my feet that notified everyone that I'd unlocked the "Wasted Your Life!" Achievement.

-Autistic Angel

Must have been a bug. I think it was actually the "I'm really just that cool" achievement.

If you try a demo of an arcade game it goes into your record and says you have 0 of 200 achievement points.  I mean that's stupid.  Why does it track demos as a game you've played?

Also, anyway to remove that from the records?

So I finally tapped into the SP demo. Intriguing but not outright OMG!  How do you zoom the sniper rifle? is it just the regular zoom button?  Kinda lame if so. Or is there more zoom with the rifle than with the others?

Haven't tried the MP yet.

Quote from: EngineNo9 on December 24, 2006, 06:49:51 PM

If the dogs weren't involved, I probably would have just taken the package so it wasn't stolen or damaged and left a note saying I had it and try talk to them as soon as they come back. 

I would do that and have done that for other neighbors, but I don't have any trust for this family (due to the concerns stated above as well as an overall unfriendliness- even coldness) that they would accuse me of stealing 'something' else.

This has been very hard to reconcile with the love your 'enemies' principal.  Howevever, God has given me reason and a family to be accountable for, so it's not a risk I'm willing to take.


BTW- The police came within 15 minutes of the call.  They went over to the house and question and looked like they were trying to gain entry.  We thought, we'll they're going to be confiscating the dogs. Then a second unit rolls up. They confer for a bit...question the neighbors to either side and then leave without a word back to me.   :icon_confused:
13687  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Ethical Dilemma on: December 24, 2006, 03:36:36 PM
Answer the poll question before reading the spoilers.

My neighbors have two pitbulls. They have been out of town at least 3 days- possibly 4.  I assume they will be gone through Christmas and best case scenario returning on the 26th. So that leaves a gap of 6-7 days that they will be out of town.

The dogs are locked in the garage. I assume with food and water, but don't know. I'm confident that there's no doggie door access to the backyard.  I know the owners are not home. I know that no one in the neighborhood is looking after the dogs.  There has been a package on their front stoop for 3-4 days so I know no one is checking on the house or the dogs.  What should I do?  What would you do?


Spoiler #1:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Past History:

At one point those pitbulls attacked me and my dog (no damage done as the owner was right behind them) and I reported it.  At another time they killed another dog in the neighborhood (no charges filed as they were being walked on leashes and the dog that was killed was loose).  Animal control has been called several times about how they mistreat the animals and that they should not be walked together. My neighbor basically stopped walking them altogether.

Spoiler #2

Spoiler for Hiden:
What I did:

I called the police.

Ok. That video is absolutely hilarious.  I mean uproarious. 

Had this appeared in prime time, I would agree it's totally inappropriate and action should be taken. But...the show is on from 11:30 to 1.

Goodness that was funny.

So the bosses of our team sent out a Christmas holiday card and they all signed it.

Inside was the treasure of treasures.  One scratch off lottery ticket valued at $1.00!  Great googily moogily. They spent $80 or so on the whole team for the holidays!  Is this an insult or do I have too high of expectations?

PS. The ticket is actually worth less than $1 because it wasn't a winner.

GT crew pooped out tonight- not much success at all. We had some 2 on 2 for a bit.  USMCKato had internet problems and then we called it a night.  To be expected I guess on a night for a holiday weekend.

That said, I hooked up with a great group of guys and pretty much played with them for nearly 4 hrs.

Glad to see there aren't just jerks on Live.  thumbsup


Calvin didn't show again.  No more invites from me.  thumbsdown

Oh and it's 3:30. So. Tired.

I have created a couple threads for the two major conflict topics.

I am hoping people are mature with their participation, the CoC always applies.

Handheld head-to-head thread
Next-Gen head-to-head thread

Both threads have been locked.

Looking at my original paperwork... it states...


To Arkon or anyone else: Does it say how to cancel the warranty? I'm wondering if I do indeed have to write a letter...I mean it's 2006 for pete's sake.
13700  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Microsoft extends Xbox 360 warranty to 1 year. on: December 22, 2006, 04:57:31 PM
He said that the 2 yr extension is solely from the purchase date of the warranty...NOT from console date of purchase.

No good.

To cancel the warranty you must:

Write a letter to:

XBOX 360 Service Contract Dept
Microsoft Corporation
One Microsoft Way
Redmond WA 98052-9953

Including: Name, Address, 360 Serial Number, Warranty Order Number, telephone and email address.

They will isssue a refund.

My letter is going out today!

Edit: Oh and for what it's worth, Carl in phone support was very helpful, polite and handled the call well.
13701  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Microsoft extends Xbox 360 warranty to 1 year. on: December 22, 2006, 04:49:10 PM
 They said they wouldn't extend it, they they only support the extended service warranty that I Paid for.


I said. Give me your supervisor.

He immediately said we won't refund the costs.

I said in the literature sent to me by your company it says satisfaction guaranteed or your money back.

He said. "It does? hold please."

13702  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Microsoft extends Xbox 360 warranty to 1 year. on: December 22, 2006, 04:42:19 PM
Says on the paper that there's a money back guarantee on the extended if not 100% satisfied.  Might have to play that card.

Still on hold.

They're telling me, on the phone right now, that they will not add the time of the extended warranty I've paid for onto the 1 year MFW.  I'm holding for a supervisor to demand my money back or get it added to the time.

Just to make sure I'm on the right page, your extended warranty is through Microsoft, not through the place you bought it, yes?

Yep.  I'm hoping it's a language barrier thing.  Still on hold.

Welp, Merry Christmas!

I plan to try to get in on some GoW MP tonight.  Might be slim pickings if you all are traveling.  I'm gonna try to scale back my online time with this game as I'm beginning to get a little haggard due to lack of sleep.

I'll be playing some Elite Beat Agents (what a great time this game is).

Also, might continue my adventures in Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrows.

Possibly some Dead Rising.

Lastly, I'm hoping Battle for Middle Earth II arrives so that I can fire that up.

Merry Christmas!
