No 360 = no gaming
Posted on Friday, November 9 2007 @ 14:22:15 Eastern

So my 360 packed in late last month while playing skate. The game stalled so I turned the console off and on and figured that would be it but I got the dreaded red rings of death. The worst one, the panic that grips you at that moment is quite unlike any other, it's the "oh **** my quite expensive console has gone down the crapper" panic but after the initial despair passes an unusual calm washes over you, once you realise it's happened and you need to get things sorted, kind of like the eye of the storm it passes and depression takes hold. The realisation that gaming is going downhill for a month or so, luckily that feeling isn't accompanied with the stress of having to pay for postage and repair due to the extended warranty but there is a slight amount of stress in having to buy suitable packaging and get a UPS pick up sorted. It took me about a week to get the electronic stamp, packaging and pick up all sorted (my slowness, not UPS or Microsoft) and then another day for the precious shipment to reach the grasp of the mothership. Now all I have to do is to wait for them to fix the machine and then be there ready and waiting for my baby to be delivered back to me. Until then I've borrowed a friend's PSP, good stuff? Well not really, there's only three games he's got that I haven't already completed on PS2, one I'm not interested in because it's too much like games I have completed, one I've nearly finished anyway and one I can't find motivation for, it's tempted me to drop the 130 notes to get a PSP myself but I guess it would be better to just tough it out without gaming for a bit and see if PSPs are reduced during the lead up to Christmas. So everyone feel a little sorry for me, the closest I'm going to get to real gaming is dipping into GTA2 which I downloaded earlier today and I've already completed that!
