Red Ring of Awesomeness

by on

So I have the 3 red rings which microsoft say 'indicates a possible hardware failure in your console' but to me says 'microsoft spent 10 bucks on each console so no wonder they're falling apart..'

I see this as a blessing in many ways. It means I probably won't spend my winter playing through COD 5 on veteran and playing COD 4 multiplayer.

farewell for now!

so in 4 or 5 days i am travelling to cambodia which is pretty exciting. the journey from door to door is taking something close to 60 hours so im not much looking forward to it, but o am excited about escaping from england.

my plan is to see phnum pen in cambodia, travel north through vietnam to hanoi, then see laos and thailand and then a flight to bengaluru in india and travel north with trains to delhi where i will fly to jerusalem and from there go to southern italy by boat and return through europe by train depending on how rich i am.

i have set aside a year but maybe it will take longer. ive set 6 months aside with which to travel india because it is so vast. then again, theres always the chance i'll find paradise and never see home again. (unlikely)

see you on the other side

good luck

by on

i had some good luck recently. i pre ordered GTA4 about a week before it came out. the only place i could pre order near me was woolworths (apparently well worth it) so thats what i did. i picked it up on the first day with no problems.

i get a letter some weeks later saying ..... 'sorry but we ran out of stock and were unable to give you your copy of grand theft auto. here is a receipt so you can get back your £59.99......'

so a free game, or rather a free £60, is pretty sweet. what will i buy? probably waste it on petrol and phone credit and food.

GTAIV prep

by on

Today I pre ordered Grand Theft Auto 4: Special Edition (the only version still available for pre order unfortunately)

Other than that I will soon stock my house with beers and steaks ready for many long gaming sessions.

I'm guessing you all have a similar plan, and if not - why not?
