Boxed Out: Getting By with no 360

So some two weeks ago, my 360 was finally subject to the red ring of death, thus pretty much ending its life.  Though I have contacted Microsoft about the problem and they claim they're sending a box out for me to ship my Xbox, with some two weeks and still no box, my hopes are less than high.  The timing couldn't have been much worse, as its pretty much a fast slope of great releases all the way to the end of the year, and I'm missing out with a busted console.
However, school has started and that has luckily preoccupied me from my current plight.  One lucky break came when I discovered the arcade across the street from my college has two Street Fighter IV machines, and I feel lucky and privileged enough to have played them repeatedly (though I've still yet to break through the win ceiling, I'm getting increasingly better as Balrog).  Having my main means of entertainment quite exploded has also given me a chance to get re-acquainted with my handheld systems, the PSP in-particular.  I've actually logged online for the first time and played some major rounds in Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron.
Though the storm is far from over, I've so far been able to soldier on.  Hopefully I'll have a break in the clouds some time before this fall's major releases.
