I turned off the Xbro censor, lest we be accused of bias against the all mighty king of consoles.

I heard Virtua On showed up for this earlier this week. I keep meaning to call up Microsoft so they can send me the casket so I can fix this thing.

I called earlier this week, they wouldn't send me a casket... but they had some thing where I printed out the shipping label and put it on my own box. The whole call took 5 minutes, you should just bite the bullet and do it.

Since I'm able to keep this one I got from work I may put my old one in our room. We have a 720p TV in there The Netflix streaming alone will be worthwhile.

yeah Microsoft doesnt send you a box anymore. You have to find your own box. They just give you the label to use for free shipping. Makes it faster though if you can actually find a box to use. I still have mine in case it goes down for the 2nd time.

Nope even though the standard warranty had expired, it was still covered under the RROD extension.

My Xbro was dropped off today. I think this time they actually just repaired my old one rather than giving me a refurb. So I hooked my repaired on up downstairs (component) and took the one I got from work and hooked it up in our bedroom on our TV's 2nd HDMI slot.

Oh yeah I also got a pair of these: http://www.turtlebeach.com/products/efx3/home.aspx from my work too, expect another product review soon. :)

Anyway, I was kind of annoyed to discover that in order to move your LIVE profile between 2 consoles, you either A. Need to do an annoying recovery process or B. Buy a memory card. I opted for the cheapest used memory card Gamestop would sell me (64MB for $19.99). That's more than enough for my profile and a few game saves.

So now I'm going to try and get back on the Mass Effect horse since I can play it in bed at night.

We have the X4's in at work, they cost 200$. I don't think anyone will ever buy them.

If this had been the first DLC I would be slightly skeptical but the last one was so awesome I'm pretty confident this will at the least slightly below GTA4 itself which is still awesome.

1 vs 100 starts in 12 minutes, if anyone wants to play. There's one normal session from 5 to 7, then an hour long E3 trivia game afterwards. If you want to play, go to the game channel, find the 1 vs 100 channel, and set a reminder for the game you want to play. When you set the reminder, the game downloads in the background, and you hit 'Play Now' when its time to start. The play now button will be at the same spot where you set the reminder.
