Hi, my name is Skid Row Trash. I have been gaming and creating add-ons and mods for games since I was 11. I'm 30 now, and I still love gaming. My first gaming system was a NES, followed by a Sega Genesis. After that, I got the Sega CD. I think I am one of the few that actually enjoyed the hell out of that system. I had to replace my Sega Genesis once because of problems, and had to replace my Sega CD 3 times, and repair it once. My first computer ever was a 386 with a huge 40mb hard drive, dos, and eventually windows. Started out playing games like wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Commander Keen, Blake Stone, and the list really is endless.. Civ 1..
After this I got a SNES. What a fun system. This was soon after followed by a Nintendo 64, and eventually a PS1 and Gamecube. I had to exchange my PS1 once because it broke. After that I had a PS2, and an Xbox. I loved both those systems so much. I had to replace my PS2 3 times, and my Xbox 3 times due to hardware problems.
These days, I am gaming on Xbox 360, and PC. I don't bother with PS anymore because I have large hands and their analog sticks are way too close. I find both thumbs fighting each when trying to play anything on a playstation these days and much prefer the improved analog stick setup that Xbox 360 has.
I am currently on my 6th Xbox 360, and have Kinect as well.
My first one died from disc tray problems.
My second one I had Nyko Intercooler which actually melted into my xbox 360 and the 2 seperate things became 1 single entity.
My 3rd Xbox was a red ring of death
my 4th Xbox eventually wouldn't even turn on.
my 5th xbox still sorta works, but the disk tray takes like 40 tries to open and takes more and more time each attempt. Also when the door is closed it things the door is open, and thus I can't launch any games.
my 6th Xbox 360 was to replace my last one, but at the same time I wanted to have the most recent so I got a kinect package. Also, this is the first time I have had the ability to use HDMI with my Xbox 360, because all 5 xboxes I had before they kept sending me old units with only Component video.
anyways, I am a real big time gamer and like to try all games (except for sports because well.. sports are weak).
It's Novermber now, the first "Next Month" of the new Xbox Achievement Rewards program. I have over 100K gamerscore, so I am in the top tier 25K+ gamerscore. According to Xbox Rewards website, gamers must make and "maintain?" the gamerscore until the first of the next month when you will be reimbursed 2% of your previous months' purchases.
Last month I bought 2 full on demand games for 2080 Microsoft Points Each. I also bought Worms Revolution (800 points) and the DLC for it (400 points). I am not sure, but I think I also got another 800 point game, but I can't remember because I seem to play too many games..
So that is 5360 points, possibly 6160. 2% of those points are 102 MSP or so, I still have not received any points, it is Nov 2.
Normally the rewards club gives you points on the 15th of every month. It was not stated that the rewards would do it like this as well, but it seems it may only be on the 15th's that you get your points.
Now another thing, it is not too clean on is if that 2% back on xbox purchases every month are for your purchases every month, or, your purchases on XBOX live for all time with a bit given back monthly. I am hoping it is the 2nd of those options, but I imagine it is the 1st, and just each month. Otherwise I would be getting like 2000 or more MSP per month! and that would be awesome...
