My gamertag is Feral Critter. You can find me online several times a week, although I frequently go without my headset.

My brother just got the Red Ring of Death recently but somehow, it worked five minutes later. Was he just lucky, or this can happen? But now i'm thinking it would have been better if it didn't work because the 360 Slim has built in wi-fi.

I have heard cases of people getting the red ring, turning the system off only to have it work fine the next day. Usually it was on borrowed time at that point, though.

From what I hear, the Red Ring isn't always fatal. There are ways to get around it, there are videos on youtube that show ways to overcome this flaw, which contrary to popular belief, is quite common on all consoles. I know more people who went through more PS3's and Wii's than Xbox360's... myself included. I'm on my first old Xbox360, second Wii, and no PS3 'cause the first and only one I bought broke 30 seconds after I turned it on, after that and going through 3 PS2's I will never buy a Sony console again.

Edit:
Anyone here get Blacklight: Tango Down? Add me if you want to play. Gamertag in Sig.

Tried the 1 hour trial of Blacklight: Tango Down and didn't like it. Kept getting killed(one shotted) and never could kill anyone else on othe other team no matter how many bullets I fired into them.

That's how it is with a lot of competitive shooters like that, at least until you get good enough that you're the one killing everyone before they can gun you down. Just saying, it takes practice. It's not something you're gonna automatically be good at, there'd be no point to it if it were. It's honestly more of a sport than a game.

Alright, cool. I'll add you now since you posted your gamertag.

@Xiepher
You don't play many FPS's do you? There are games out there that have a faster "death time", or whatever you wanna call it, such as Counter Strike. As long as you get the drop on your opponents and shoot first you can take 'em out easy. And it's easy to know where people are thanks to the virtual helmet.

Is Crackdown 1 worth the purchase? I think the sequel looks cool, but I don't want to spend $60 dollars on something I might not like. I was thinking of getting Crackdown used at Gamestop for $15.

The Game.

Is it after 9PM EST? You should probably ignore the above post.

Sure. It's not the deepest sandbox style game out there, but buffing your character out tot the point he can hurl cars across the street or leap several stories is good fun. Well worth $15, IMO.

Yes. Yes it is. It's one of the best Open-World/Sandbox games around, and it's definitely one of the best on the Xbox 360. It's more than worth $15, I can tell ya that.

Okay, so what would be a better choice, Crackdown or Fable II? I'm new to both series.

The_Fox

Well, they're both great games. I honestly would say Fable II is the better game, but it depends if you would rather have an action game or an RPG. Fable II is much more of a time investment than Crackdown, I can tell you that much.

@RandomWiiPlayer
If you like GTA style games, get Crackdown, if you prefer RPGs get Fable II. Personally I prefer Fable II, it lasts longer (sidequests, jobs, bar games, Gargoyles, Demon doors, etc...) and has more to do (weapon customization, raise a family, train your dog, etc...) it even has some cool DLC. Both games have character customization, Crackdown has orbs for specific traits (agility, shooting, speed, strength, etc...) which make your character very superhuman (leaping across buildings and throwing cars at enemies is fun) and changes his appearance (from ugly to super ugly, LOL) whereas Fable II has XP orbs for certain skills (magic, ranged weapons, strength) and your characters appearance changes due to the choices you make (good or evil, pure or corrupt), clothes you choose to wear, and how much force (magic) you use. All in all Fable II is more a deeper, more entertaining gaming experience.

I believe I will go with Fable. Thanks guys. I will probably get Crackdown eventually.

Oh ya! DeathSpank coming out tomorrow, can't wait to play the demo and quite possibly buy it. It's been described as having Diablo gameplay and Monkey Island humor. Hope it turns out to be good. And next week it's Limbo (I've been looking forward to this one for a while).
