Well ain't this just effin wonderful...

Hi! I haven't been online in a while (not just GB but the internet in general... ) so forgive if this blog kinda sucks and is kinda short. Anyway, it's eastern and i do what i do every day I'm of work- I play games on my Xbox/PS3  in my underwear until like noon when i eat and shower,stop being a zombie for about 20 minutes and then return to a zombie-like state (Don't judge! I work a whole lot,and being a lawyer is boring most of the time,unless you're defending/prosecuting a killer in which case it's fucking SCARY).

SO,i had a friend from back home in Croatia drop by because he was on vacation and he made the stupid,stupid choice of coming to Canada (it's a great place to live in but not for tourism,might as well stay in Croatia-Dalmatia is beautiful in the spring.)., and we're playing Resistance: FoM co-op,because we started on his PS3 before i moved to Canada and never finished. ANYWAY,i pop in the game and it says i have to install an update (To clarify: an update for Resistance and not a system update) . OK,sure this should only take a minute

30 minutes later

So its FINALLY installed and we go to play,i select the co-op option on the menu and.... What's this? It restarted? Oh,well i guess it's a problem with the game. No biggy,its gotta be a problem with the disk, I'll just buy another one off of eBay and we'll just skip to Resistance 2 for now so i pop in R2 and we start playing. We actually played for quite a while but then,you guessed it, it restarts.

And I'm thinking "Well i guess my PS3's dead. Well,let's play some 360 games then!" . Since we're both big racing fans i popped in Forza 3 and showed him the controls he starts playing,drives around 2 laps and then my 360 RROD's. Nothing unexpected consider that its a launch 360,the only problem is-i don't have what to play on now as my PC is a piece of shit from '05 that barely works!

So,what should i do now?






(I guess i could try actually socializing,i haven't been out since a moved to Toronto...)

Do you have them all running in the same power adapter. Could be faulty or loose. I have pretty bad luck with technology but you may be lucky and it may not be that everything is fried. Good luck tho. PS Tried socializing in T.O but the beer store and couch were just too attractive.

Edited by AnotherDuder
@Twisted_Scot: Yeah they are running of the same power adapter,I'll check it out some time soon (i don't feel like moving a huge fucking armoire to get to it!)

Also,beer and couch idea is great ^_^

How are you a Lawyer with terrible Punctuation?

Posted by Twisted_Scot

Armchairs are also a fine choice.

Posted by AnotherDuder
@Lukeweizer: Connections. Also i can't use a keyboard properly

@Twisted_Scot: SO MANY CHOICES!

What if i just get drunk in an armchair and spend my hangover on a couch?

Aw man, that sucks. I have had RRoD twice actually. No videogames must suck. Do you have a DS/portable device?

@InternetCrab: Not at the moment, but i ordered a 3DS so it should come within next week bundled with Nintendogs and Cats,so I'm pretty stoked about that.
