Project Harbinger

I'm putting Crauss off for a couple weeks as I promised LinkOfAzeroth that I'd work on a text RPG with him. MalykAI is still moving forward though and is my main concern.

The only thing set in stone at the moment is that Project Harbinger is going to be a pretty simple text-based RPG. More info coming soon.

XBox 360 Update

Since I know you're all so worried, I'll let you know how my phone call went with XBox Tech support. First I got some lame ass automated bull crap that tried to sound human (e.g. "An XBox 360. Gotcha!") I had to go through a second time because the voice recognition crap fucked up and sent me to the wrong thing. Then, I get some Australian guy (VERY thick accent) who doesn't seem to know anything. I answer his questions, give him the reference numbers from my e-mail, blah, blah, blah. Finally, we figure out that neither of us has a fucking clue what's wrong with it and we come to the magical point of the conversation

"Your console needs to be repaired. Let me enter the information...*LONG silence*...Just entering the information something or other...*another LONG silence*...something...*and again*...There we go. Blah blah blah, since it's no longer under warranty it's going to cost you $149 plus the cost of shipping to us. We'll pay to ship it back." The only thing that catches me off guard is HOW CAN HE GIVE ME A FIGURE WHEN HE HAS NO FUCKING CLUE WHAT IS WRONG? >_< I could be paying to send it in and have a professional install a$3 item for all he knows.

Anyway, at the end of the month I'll probably end up spending my Christmas money as well as some of my mom's money to get my 360 fixed just so it can most likely break 3 months down the road.

Cookie to the person who figures out the secret behind this entry (You don't count LinkOfAzeroth.)

Just out of interest - what does a very thick Australian accent sound like? Are we talking Crocodile Dundee/Hunter here?

For me, it's the Queenslanders who have what I think is what people regard as an "Aussie" accent, but as a native I've got no clue what an Australian accent actually sounds like - so I'm curious as to how the rest of the world thinks we talk.

"Im sorry sir, I think a dingo might have broke your 360."

That seems to be the problem with this generation of hardware. Wiis seem to be ok, no real breakdowns or anything just cheap straps. PS3s seem to be doing ok, except for the lack of them actuially existing. Now 360s, Ive seen roughtly a thousand or so messages around about peoples systems bricking. That seems to be how microsoft makes there money. They sell you something for an arm and a leg, it breaks, then they make you pay even more. I wouldnt doubt it if its some cheapo part that is easily replaced. The only problem is, if you do it yourself no more xbox live :(

\$149 plus shipping?

I think I'd buy a new one and keep the old one around for spare parts. :)

@TrapperZoid: It was more of a Crocodile Dundee accent.

@ShoeStringGames: The Wii and PS3 are having disc drive issues too, mostly they don't want to take the disc in or it only goes in so far and then it spits it back out.

@Jesse: That's not really the best idea since I have no clue what I'm doing when it comes to the 360 (some flashing and such needs to be done and I have no clue how to do it.) Plus, it's a lot more money than I have.

Thanks for the replies guys!

Hmmm, the secret? You've modded it, right? [wink]
