My love for videogames is only eclipsed by my love of music. I have an unnatural affinity for zombie movies, Reeses' Cups, and slide guitar. I own a gaming PC and a Macbook and love both. I've seen more movies than I'd like to say. I currently own the exciting Wii360 combo. I've owned every game system since except the Gamecube. The Deadliest Catch and LOST are the best shows on TV. I would drop out of school to tour full time with a band. If there was a fire, I'd grab a guitar in each hand and hope my girlfriend would make it out alive.
WHAT AM I LISTENING TO? Neva Dinova - The Hate Yourself Change Okkervil River - The Stage Names

I figured since a lot of you are whining like children, that I would join in on the fun.
OK, so Live wasn't working well for about like 6 hours on Friday.
Or, wait. I'm pretty sure I was playing COD4 online for most of the day. And I'm pretty sure
I downloaded the maps at about 11am without incident and then got and installed the
update no problem around noon.
"But, but I had trouble buying MS points and the maps!"
Yea, I understand you had troubles for most of the afternoon. Trouble accessing the
GODDAMN MARKETPLACE. Seriously? This is what you people bitch about? Not being able to
download maps for a videogame? This is where your righteous indignation comes through?
About downloading maps for a fucking videogame?

people are raping it in the ass."[/i]
Yes. How dare anything not work for like 6 hours. How dare it.
But after what happened in Dec. it should have been fixed...'
What happened in Dec. was bullshit. I agree with that. But come on. Are your lives that sad
that not being able to download maps for like 6 hours upset you guys that much? Come the
Yes. Shit we pay for should work. But off the top of my head, I can count on one hand the
number of times Live has been fucked up. That's a pretty damn good success rate when
you consider how many people play on and use Live on a daily basis.
Seems to have a pretty active community behind and runs a TON of games. I just fired up
The Secret Island of Dr. Quandry and it runs great. They have a list of compatible games
and how they run on the DOSBox site there are even patches/workarounds for ones that don't
work too well.
