Microsoft earns a new fan! (sarcasm)

   0
I never owned a original XBOX due to ExTREME name and lack of games I was interested in. Which lead me to a lack of interest in the XBOX 360 (double ExTREME DooDZ!), but as soon as I learned of Mistwalker making Blue Dragon for the system I knew good things would come! So last xmas my girlfriend got me a 360 with GoW and I was a happy boy! Other than replaying SotN for the millionth time I didn't use it for much, just some real casual gaming. Until Eternal Sonata and Blue Dragon came out I had MAYBE stacked up about 20 hours all together playing 360 console games. I got ES first due to countless reviews telling me how short it was, I figured it'd be a good starter into my new world of 360 RPG's.

We'll about 6 hours into the game my CD drive stops reading disc's entirely. I call the Microsoft "help" line and get what seems to be a woman of unknown nationality doing a Creole accent. WTF? She had me run a quick test to determine that it was in fact busted. We'll its broke and I'm waiting for my shipping box for the UPS man. The thing that bums me out is that It didn't die from overheating, isn't that the common problem? Am I going to get it back in 2 months and get the red rings or do they now replace the heat sinks knowing that they'll break soon anyway?

To soothe my pain I bought MP:C.....Gooooooood Stuff!

I've beat Faxanadu in one (long) sitting. I've never played Halo. As a child, I nick named the second gun upgrade in Stinger "Potty Pot Shot" as the bullets are round and reminded me of toilet bowls. I believe in video game violence, a friend knocked me out cold at age 12, we we're practicing our Dragon Punch's. I've rented Brittany's Dance Beat....twice. Zelda 2 is amazing, and so is Simon's Quest.
