I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

A Gamer without Games
Posted on Wednesday, November 28 2007 @ 17:42:44 Eastern

I'm sure the majority of you are aware about my Xbox 360 woes, they've got more woeful. See when I sent my precious console to the repair centre on the 1st of November I figured they'd get it, replace it, send it back. The bastards* didn't do that, instead of sending it to my university address as I instructed on the repair request form they sent it to the registered address, despite what the person on the phone told me. The outcome of this unfortunate turn of events is that my console has been returned to my home address, while it is safe and sound it's precisely *checks Google maps* 92.2 miles away from me. NOT MUCH GOOD! So I could take a train back home for the weekend but that's at least £40 return off the top of my head, I could get my parents to send it up to me but it's a heavy package and unfair to burden my parents with both the cost and time and effort it would take to send it so I'm stuck with undesirable option 3, ride it out for almost a month until I go home for the holidays.

So what's it like being a gamer with nothing to game on? It's horrific, I borrowed a flatmate's PSP but without games I haven't already played on PS2 it's not much good so right now I'm crying out for some mild relief from the stresses of uni, I always knew gaming was a stress reliever but damn, I didn't realise it was such a [i]good[/i] one. In truth time goes by without thinking of gaming but whenever the work stacks up I find myself longing for a bit of distraction. Long story short? I'm looking forward to the holidays slightly more than usual now.

*Disclaimer - the good people at Microsoft are not bastards, they are hard working people who may or may not know how to follow instructions.
