As most of you probably already know, yesterday marked, or at least was supposed to mark, the end of Xbox Live support for original Xbox games; which would mean no more Mech Assault, Forza, or Halo 2.(At the time of this writing I am unable to confirm whether or not the servers have in fact gone down.) For this historic occasion, Giant Bomb decided to do a live Live event via Ustream, documenting and sending off in style the final hours of the original Xbox Live. The servers were supposed to go down at around midnight last night, however, at 4:15am the servers had still not gone down and the fine folks at Giant Bomb decided enough was enough and called it a night.
Now, that would have been fine, except for one thing. I don’t remember what time it was exactly, but I believe it was around 1 or 2, I was just about to leave the live stream when Ryan said that even if he had to do it himself he would stay until the end. Because of this even though I was extremely tired, and even though I had stuff I needed to do before I could go to bed, AND, even though I had somewhere to be at 10 this morning(9am Pacific time) I stayed up, because if Ryan could do it so could I, and I was going to stick it out until the end!
But Ryan did not stick it out to the end like he said he would, even though I and many others were willing to stick it out with him. I’m a little disappointed, but in the end it was still a very entertaining live stream and I’m glad I watched it, even if I have to go through the rest of my day running on no sleep still not knowing whether or not the Xboxalypse really happened or not.
As anybody reading this blog should know, giantbomb started a new quest system today, and one of those quest requires you to post a new blog(hopefully it's not considered cheating or spoiling to post a blog saying that, but since it's in the description I think it's okay). Now I'm not going to say that I'm posting this blog for any reason other than to complete this quest, because that would be a lie. However, I would like to tell you what I think of this new quest system, but I'm way to busy in a mad dash trying to complete as many quests in as short a time as humanly possible.
