I'm kind of glad I've put my nightmare mode run on the backburner for a while, then. I'm on a 1.5Mbps connection, so this is going to take forever to download. That last patch (the 5 GB one) took me 11 days to download, even with standby downloading enabled. I don't know what all the Xbox One has going on in terms of background bandwidth usage, but it's ridiculous that something my 360 takes only a few hours to download literally requires days on the new hardware.

My old man is a retired equipment manager from the State DoT, I work for a Utility Services Corp. as an over-glorified tree trimmer.

I'm in the middle of this, I guess. I kinda want to get the next Xbox because I've completely enjoyed my experience with the 360 so far, and I was primarily a Sony gamer through the PS1 and Ps2 eras. The PS3 has few exclusives I've wanted to play, and I feel as though I've played everything on that console that I want to play aside from The Last of Us (I've yet to play Uncharted 2 and 3, but kinda want to). Most of my friends are on 360, which is a huge factor for me even though I primarily play singleplayer games. I don't care much for dealing with randoms and enjoy having a set group that enhances my experience because we actually communitcate. That aside, even though I have a child on the way and most of my expenses are going towards my soon to be family, I'm setting a bit of cash aside with each check to build a new PC (not necessarily for gaming, but it would be nice. I mostly like to dabble in game capture and video editing) and to buy one of the next-gen consoles. I'm kinda impressed by the PS4, but I'm really hoping Microsoft can get their shit together and offer something along the same lines and still cater to gamers just enough to make it worthwhile.

I just upgraded to a Droid Razr Maxx from a Droid X2. Yeah, I know I'm behind the times, but buying a new cell phone every year isn't a priority for me, and not exactly possible with a little one on the way.

I'm rocking embarrassingly slow internet (I live in the middle of nowhere in New Mexico), and I've been having issues watching any video content compared to the old site. Luckily I renewed my sub and just download stuff, but sometimes I just want to watch a vid while I'm grabbing a munch.

For a Co-Op shooter, it's enjoyable. Though I'm only on the fourth mission, the "your mom" jokes are beyond stale at this point.

Hmmm... Let's see.. Crysis (1), Assassin's Creed III, Crysis 3, Super Mario 3D Land, Far Cry 3... I dunno, it's really hard to say. Life's been crazy this year with having to move twice, having all of my games stolen by an asshole stoner to fuel their habit, having my hard drive erased by my ex-roommate's kids, and finding out my Fiance is pregnant (I'm gonna be a dad, WOO!).

So, to sum it up, 5, maybe? Those are the one's that I remember.

@gamesmaster320: I heard of doing that during the PS1 era, but haven't heard anything positive about the results.

To contribute: I used the Toothpaste/dishsoap method for years. Always worked great as long as the discs weren't too bad. Never tried a disc doctor, though I've wanted to. I think the methods may really depend on the disc itself. I've had it work on discs from every generation, but it has varying results.
