Happy New HDTV/RRoD Day!!!

After years of waiting, I am the owner of a brand new HDTV. It's not one of the TVs I researched over the years, not even the same technology. I got the Panasonic 42" 720p plasma viera for $549 on Black Friday. The tv is simply sex compared to my original tv. After waiting in line from 4am to 8am to get my cheap beauty, I was greeted with my second case of Red Rings of Death when I gleefully returned home.

Oh, the fail...

Two thoughts immediately jumped in my head:

1. FUCK!!!!

2. No mo' warranty. :(

That last one was probably more of a technicality. Basically, I was trying to convince myself to take it to this guy I know who makes a living fixing RROD'd Xboxes at his private-owned gaming shop.

So, here I sit watching HD College Football and Red Wing hockey, and all I wanna do is play some of my damn games in HD for the first time.

Anyone else being cock-blocked from enjoying HD gaming goodness?

Let's see...

My PS2 broke down in Octoboer '05, and I was so irritated because that was the 8th time that had happened, I swore off systems. Fast forward to December '06, and my friend and I wanted to find an activity to do, but I live in Detroit and he lives in Houston. I broke down and pursued an Xbox 360, and I came out of my year long retirement from gaming.

I dig mostly on sports games, but I fell in love with sandbox GTA games. I don't spend too much time playing, as I try to divide my free time up as much as possible. But because of my narrow gaming tastes, it does not mean I'm closed off to other game types. No WoW though, I'm geeky enough as is.

Away from gaming, I love sports, comics, cartoons, anime and movies. I don't watch as much television as I use to, but I keep up with what I love as much as possible. Cartoons are all I watch on tv besides sports anyway. I also love to write. I write leisurely and sometimes I utilize blogging. I stick to short stories more than anything. I gotta find a spot to slap a link to my myspace, if that's an acceptable action around here. I'm still unsure.
