I seriously never thought I would say that, but EA has awoken the casual gamer in me again. Recently I decided to move my Xbox One out of my living room and into another location in my house, the Den (as it is labeled in my Sonos system). The den is where my computer is located as well as a 42″ TV. Obviously, the 55″ in the living room plus surround sound gives a greater overall experience, but I realized I didn’t necessarily want all of that. All i really need is my leather recliner (also in the den) and a nice HD TV. 10-15 years ago I was much more into gaming. I had all of the consoles, and was an avid PC gamer. (I’ll blame Unreal Tournament for that.) and since then my console playing has dwindled. I have an Xbox 360 in the closet which hasn’t been turned on for 4+ years, and my PS3 which I used to play fairly often hasn’t even been taken out of...

Nooo! RROD!

It finally happened…at one of the worst possible times. Every year at Thanksgiving my cousin and I play Madden. It’s become an annual showdown haha. I fired up my 360 and the game kept freezing while loading the game. It happened 3 times. After that I finally got the red ring of death. I knew it would be happening any time because I still had my 360 from launch, but why today? Anyways, I said it was no problem. I can get one. I called up a friend of mine who lives really close and borrowed his for the day so we could play. Worked out great, but with all of the holidays coming up I just wonder how long it’s going to take to get my 360 shipped out and back. Once we played our annual game we drank a 5 liter draught keg of Heineken. can’t go wrong with that…

Xbox Live Vision Camera Bundle

A few days ago I realized I needed to renew my Xbox Live subscription.  As you probably know already, a 12 month subscription costs $50.  So, I decided to look around and came across the Vision Camera Bundle. This bundle retails for $79.99 at most places and Amazon.com had it on sale for $64.99. I thought to myself well why not just get the bundle then?  The camera itself costs $39.99 so the fact that I was getting the camera and the 12 month subscription sounded great.  But that wasn’t it…  The bundle also comes included with 2 arcade games, an extra Live headset, and 200 Microsoft Points.  Purchasing all of these things seperate would easily cost over $110 so the $65 i spent on it was well worth it. Now a little about the Camera itself… From what I have noticed the quality is pretty good considering the price.  Once thing I don’t like very much, but makes...
