Sorry if I missed it, but where did you buy it for $1000?  I see it listed for $1600 in several places.

I was visited by the RROD fairy last night.  On to my 4th 360 now.  This one lasted about 7-8 months.  Yay!  Oh well, at least they're replacing their junky hardware for free.

Dude, that blows.  Are they doing anything different this time, given the 4th failure?

<slaps head>  Gah, I didn't even think of asking about anything like that.  One of them I used my Best Buy service plan to exchange so this is my 2nd through MS.  Oh well, I already have a big backlog of games...

And the two Xbox Live games this week:

Chessmaster Live (800 MS Points)

Rez! Finally!

Heck yeah!  Both please.

Ok, let me talk to them tonight.  It's possible I could use it while I'm living with them.  I'm in San Anselmo in Marin county.  Whereabouts is the TV located?

And conversely I wouldn't buy a TV off someone I had no idea about either.   icon_smile

Hmm, I just moved out to the Bay Area a week ago.  I have been scouting TVs and was looking at the Samsung line as my likely choice.  The only problem is that I'm not sure if I have a place for it as I'm currently staying with my brother and his family.  What's your time frame on selling it?
128  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What is Your Game of the Year? on: December 17, 2007, 12:34:45 AM
Bioshock by a mile.  Simply brilliant.

Runners up in order:
  • Rock Band
  • Orange Box
  • COD4
  • Halo 3
129  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Joining the 360 Sucks Crowd... on: December 17, 2007, 12:31:25 AM
Sorry to hear about the problems.  Having it break down right at Christmas time certainly is an unfortunate time.

But "sucks" and "haters" are too strong of words for me considering all the fun I've had with it over the past couple of years.  The reliability certainly is disappointing and highly annoying.  But their customer service has been top notch and they've quickly took care of my issue.  Here's hoping they have more time to spend on reliability and testing for the 720/361/etc.

131  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Bye Bye CompUSA on: December 08, 2007, 07:33:49 AM
Ding!

It used to be called Softwarehouse.  It was located in a tucked away strip mall on Marsh Ln just north of Beltline (I believe a jewelery place is there now).  I used to go there as well.  You'd have to find your product and then take it to the warehouse window where they'd retrieve it for you.  When it initially became CompUSA they started putting all of the product out on the shelves...although you're right that it wasn't much more organized at first.

But CompUSA was always the very *last* place I'd go to buy anything computer related.  And even then it was only when I needed a cable in a pinch or to peruse the discounted games.

If I can get a discount deal to bring it down to $300 after taxes I'll pick one up specifically for a Blu-Ray player and the occasional AAA title.  But my gaming is still 360 and PC.  I have a 10% Best Buy discount for this weekend but it's still not enough.

Exactly.  I hate the Patriots because they are a smug group of cheating (even if by association) assholes.  But that doesn't mean they aren't an amazing football team.

139  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamestop Halo 3 Pre-Orders are through the roof on: September 17, 2007, 04:40:18 AM
I passed on a preorder at Gamestop the other day just because they're so f'in annoying about it.  But after reading the article in Wired I'll probably end up putting one in this Tuesday.  It's more of a convenience thing, though, since it's right next to my gym.  I'm stoked for it as it sounds like they got their act together for this one.  Halo2's shortcomings seem to be the result of the disorganized growing pains of a small company suddenly becoming a huge one.  I'm expecting the SP greatness of Halo1 married to the sweet MP system of Halo2.
140  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: How Fast Have You Driven in Your Current Car? on: September 06, 2007, 04:29:47 AM
110mph in my 350Z back around when I first got it (2003).  I enjoy acceleration more than top speed these days.  I smoked a WRX off the line at a stop light a couple weeks ago.  Felt pretty good, but after a couple lights I gave him the thumbs up and backed off.  That's enough excitement for me for about a year or so.  icon_smile

Discovering new music (new to me anyway, can be from any time)
Screen accurate movie costume replicas (stormtrooper and ghostbuster complete, working on Boba Fett)

I did Taekwondo (WTF) for 6 years but grew tired of the repeated hamstring injuries.  Someday I'd like to get back in to another, more grappling oriented art.

I've just about worn out my season sets so these films can't come soon enough.  Woot!

While the individual episodes were great (Godfellas, Roswell) what I really liked about Futurama was the series spanning storyline about Fry's purpose and the development of the character relations.

F*#k the missing sisters.. How the hell you all killing these Big daddies? to be specific the ones that charge at you? I swear, I am down to a min of 3-4 deaths no before I can down one, but with the weapon upgrades I can get them down fast enough.

Shotgun with the electric buck is nigh god mode against them.  I stock up whenever possible.  However, if you haven't acquired it yet then electroshock to stun them, unload a few rounds, switch back to stun, reload shotgun, electoshock to stun, unload shotgun, etc.  The only thing to keep in mind is that you might have to use one of the stunned moments for an EVE hypo.

Or use the grenade launcher in place of the shotgun, but reload times are longer so be careful.
146  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tiger Woods 08 on: August 29, 2007, 07:12:54 PM
Thanks for the impressions everyone! 

I have a question, though.  Can you permanently turn off the in-between shot animations?  I know it's a seemingly trivial matter, but having to mash the button 3 times between every single shot to skip them really ground down my enjoyment on TW '07.  I just want to jump in and play as fast a round as possible.

Picking up my copy tomorrow for the 360 although NCAA is still my favorite football game.  2K8 has been a nice diversion but it just has too much of an arcade feel to it for the long term.

Help please!

Spoiler for Hiden:
I'm very close to the end, but I'm stumped.  I can't get past the meat-circus sequence.  I get to the platform where that thing is throwing knives at you and there is a giant spinning bullseye behind you.  For the love of Chewy where the hell am I supposed to go.  This entire sequence has seemed really out of proportion to the rest of the game as it involves a whole lot of trial and error and having to start all the way over each time you fail.  Ugh.  Help please as I've loved the game up to this point and gave up on it 3 weeks ago.
152  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tool + Guitar Hero... how? (regarding GH official and FoF) on: May 16, 2007, 04:05:38 AM
I don't know specifically, but my understanding is that it involves a modded console, setting the songs up using PC software and reburning a new image of the game.  You effectively replace one of the existing songs with a custom one.  The animations for the song is the same as the replaced one and, as you noticed, the guitar track isn't separated.

Bummer.

They told me to hold on to my hard drive when I sent mine in.  If they don't send you back the same unit then they will automatically switch the serial # of all of your purchased content over to the new one.  They ended up sending me a newer replacement and my account was updated to the new machine by the time it arrived.

Mine was literally a week's turnaround from the time I sent it to the time I received my replacement.  Good luck!
