Don't much like the PH boxes. Like others here, uniformity is important to me... However, you can't beat the price. The fact that it's a new (condition) game is impotant also as the chance that the disc is scratched is lower. All in all, I'd say that the poorly conceived boxes are a fair trade-off.

Anyone know if there is a website that acutally keeps track of peopel who have recieved faulty Xbox's? Given the number and nature of all their problems, and since they are not doing any kind of recall, i believe they should fully cover repair costs for all xbox's currently out. If I could just get some kind of figures on how many people are being screwed right now...

I have family who are lawyers, corporate and civil, actually; they previously worked for pharm. companies in civil defense lawsuits, but in light of the tort reform here in Texas business is a little slow for them. I'd love to throw them a bone, but I'd have to give them some kind of idea as to the number of people experiencing these problems to grab their attention (given pharmaceutical to video games is a big jump...); though it seems this is such a huge deal that, at the very least, the idea that a class action suit could occur would spur microsoft into taking some form of action.

Anyways, just a thought...

Well, my Xbox kicked the bucket. Sorta. It's having a hard time deciding whether it just wants to freeze all the time, or shove the RRoD in my face. Now, I'm planning to call Microsoft, but I have a wee issue here. I bought it less than a year ago, but I have pretty well no proof of when I bought it. I didn't register online, didn't keep the receipt, stuff like that. Will I still be able to get a replacement?PHW-Clover

It doesn't even matter if it's past it's warranty date whether or not you get the RROD. My console got the ring last week. I cycled the power and the red lights went away. A few days later my video goes out. I've got audio, but no picture. After some investigation, it turns out that this is a known failure caused by the heat issue (generally resulting in the RROD). I call MS and they tell me that since my issue is not the RROD, but a video issue, that it is not covered by the new extended warranty. What BS! This is a replacement system that I received from them this August. Essentially three months old. Good luck and sorry for the rant. I am feeling very anti-MS these days.

First of all, everybody stop arguing about who is hypocritical or whatnot. Yes, the kid should have known was a MMO was, but it's no big deal. Yes, the one dude shouldn't have called him out on it but hey, he did and it's over. Now, enjoy my idea for a game:

A first person shooter where you play asJohn Travoltaand you must use your impressive arsenal of fully automatic guns which launch lemons to decimate an invading alien race of genetically altered hybrids of bears, sharks andalligators. Now, it runs off the Halo engine (of course) so there are vehicle segments. Specifically, you ride around on a rocket propelled segway scooter with miniguns on the front (these too shoot lemons). Anyway, the reason for the sudden attack is that the aliens need to harvest all of Earth's corn to use as fuel for their super powered space fortress, not very unlike the Death Star. In fact, it IS the Death Star. Only, for non copyight purposes, it's called the Giant Hurt Ball. So, they come to take our corn and begin to slaughter humanity to boot, and the coalition against them, (led by John Travolta, if you remember) launches an all out counter attack on their death army. Now, keep in mind they have us outnumbered, so the games then steals directly from Gears of War with it's premise on using the sick and incarserated at soldiers. So, a new army led by Michael Vick (he's not in prison, but damn it, he should be) attacks their Giant Hurt Ball (see: Death Star) and manages to launch a projectile into a hole one meter wide, that for some unknown reason was completely unprotected, unarmored, and just kind of hanging out there in the open. The Death Star, um I mean Giant Hurt Ball is deatroyed, and the bear/shark/gator people are demoralized. We strike back, kill their leader, and drive them away from Earth. Also featured in the game is multiplayer, which is just the data to make the Halo 3 multiplayer, just stolen and used in the game. It also has the Master Chief in it, Lara Croft, Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden, King Arthur from Super Ghouls and Ghosts, and Sean Connery, because he makes everything amazing. That, my friends, would be the best game of all time.

Shadowscale18

Your game idea rocks. The fact that the Giant Hurt Ball is green (hybrid?) is boss.Now if you could just find a way to fit Chuck Norris in, the game would be flawless. Oh and Kate Beckinsale should play some sort of Leia role (metal bikini).

[QUOTE="deceased101"][QUOTE="rbop"]Are you kidding me? This guy is a level 20 poster on a video game forum and you don't think he knows what an MMORPG is? Or whether it's been done before? Too easy! PWND! ...let me guess, What's PWND? LOL!ct1257860

you know you dont have a life when...

...when you make non-sensical posts in a dumb thread. Like I am. I'm still psyched about the Bolts beating the Colts, so cut me some slack.

you already did when making fun of me for not knowing what MMORPG ment and me being a lvl 20. Geta life you hypocrite.

I can't truly be hypocritical can I if I've admitted that I am doing what I'm chastising... can I? That's up for debate I guess. What isn't is that you are excessively touchy. I hope that your game goes well, and you enjoy your nerdy obsession with a game about real life, that uhh, isn't. Do you have to put money in a jar in your game everytime you say a bad word? That would be tres neato.

uh...who said its an obssesion. All i said it would be nice to be done and uhh yea i dont like you. And for the other post its not like the sims at all. It could sound like it but if you cant picture it than i cant explain it to you. It has more 3d graphics and is a huge city where you drive around.

I got it its like grand theft auto, sims, and my own mix.

Haha. Your game sounds awesome! I hope someone develops it. People would come in droves. I'm sorry that you don't like me. I'm sure that if we got to know one another things would be different. Alas, we are just two lost wanderers searching the Gamespot forums for some support (your game idea) and perhaps a little friendship. My quest has obviously ended in failure. I pray that yours finds more success.Goodtidings to you and yours, and may you have a blessed holiday. I'm in a good mood because the Eagle's and Bolts both won today, so I leave you with a bit of friendly advice... You should learn to lighten' up. Your game does sound a lot like an MMORPG though (Second Life/Guild Wars / City of Heroes). I don'tknow. Anyhow, peace out!
