Return of the Zombie Xbox

My 360 has come back from the dead!  Well, it wasn’t technically “dead” when I packed it up in a coffin and mailed it back to Microsoft.  But it was certainly screaming in pain whenever it had a disk in it.  The noise was rediculous.

I finally broke down and had it fixed and I must say, the new drive is much quieter.  I discovered that Xbox 360 games do, in fact, have an audio track!  It took 14 days from when I dropped it off at UPS until the fixed Xbox arrived.  Plus they tagged on a month of Xbox Live.  Not bad.

So while I think it’s shitty that I had to drop $100 to fix a stupid problem like this, I am happy to have a working system again.

A Trip to the Hospital

Yes I was at the hospital today. No it wasn’t any emergency, just running a test for a problem I had a few months ago. It hadn’t reoccurred, and the test came back clear. But wow this test was an ordeal. Suffice to say, I now hate jello.

I played a bunch of Left4Dead over the past weekend and I must say, this is a must buy game if you’re into cheesy Zombie movies. It’s like they took the psychotic, fast running zombies of 28 Days Later and put them in the environments of a Romero movie. You have to work as a team (which is a challenge when you don’t have 4 humans playing, and have to use computer teammates) as you face insane numbers of zombies. Way fun.

I took off tomorrow and am not sure exactly what I’ll be doing. something relaxing. and jello free.
