Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

I must suck at the search function.. I'm looking at selling my 360, and I was curious how to clear the memory on it so there's no financial info tied to it. Would I just need to format the hdd? Or would I need to login to my account somewhere?

Does it help that the cc I used expired midway thru my subscription?

As far as anything else goes, I just formatted the hard drive. Good?

I'm not going to be able to do the sales thread this month since I'll probably be somewhere above the Pacific when they're released. Would be cool if somebody else could take care of it.

Same exact thing happened to me. Make sure you send them just the console. Don't leave your HD or games or anything with the console because they will jack it from you and make like you never sent anything w/ the console.

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

After finishing Mario Galaxy, I decided to check gamerankings to see if there are any 3-d platformers for the 360. They listed very few. But one of the higher scoring ones is Marble Blast Ultra. It's a Live game, so I thought I'd try it out. Holy crap that game is fun as hell. I was up until 2:30 playing the game last night, even though I had to get up at 7 am. I'm sure it's just the initial fun factor and it will get old a lot sooner than, e.g., GH or Mario Galaxy. But that's one of the best $5 (or however much Live games cost) I've ever spent on a video game. Seriously addicting game.

You could try Kameo, it's sort of like Banjo Kazooie and Spyro the dragon with a little bit of Zelda thrown in. Plus you can get it for like 8 or 10 bucks new now.

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

havent picked it up yet, but looking to grab rock band in the near future....

Other than RB2 coming out on the X360 first, is there any other major reason to get it on the 360 instead of the PS3?

Downloadable content the same for both, etc?

coolest thing about that game is that it actually has replay value. check out the leaderboards. just about every single level can be beat in sick time. but I'm a minmax dork so maybe that's not everybody's cup of tea.

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

Old man (Grew up with a Vic 20 and Atari before it was called the 2600) just ordered the Wii online. Sucks waiting for a Monday delivery, but sucks driving to the suburbs to pick one up even more

Ordered Bully, Galaxy, Rayman and Pinball (I have a full size Whirlwind in my house, but no room for a Taxi, Funhouse and Pinbot...have really high hopes for this one.) With Punchout on VC, I will be in full regression mode...there should some bartenders in town that will be a little poorer this month. Can't wait, haven't had a video game system since my Xbox broke after 6 months in 2002.

Number one worry - Neighborhood kids finding out.

Those Batman pics are insane. Best graphics I have ever seen in any next-gen game by far.

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

An idea I had, let me know if you guys think it's worth while or not.

I live in Vegas and run a gaming store (not my own, just a store manager).

I was thinking about starting a thread where people who are in vegas or who are visiting vegas but looking for things can post their wish list....
When I go to work I'll look for the items and then contact them.

For people in vegas looking for things, I can put you on my "wish list" and when I get them in I can get a hold of whoever to come in and buy it.


Good idea, or not enough gamers from Vegas in this forum to make it worth while?

It can't be a bad idea. Worst case, nobody responds.

Last night I was bored and playing MLB 08 The Show and Bases Loaded on my computer.

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

I was looking forward to busting out FF7, but realized I didn't have any Playstation 1 memory cards. No problem, I thought, I'll just play it on PS2. Well, I could play the game, but couldn't say, as apparently the PS2 memory card doesn't work with PS1 games. Is there a way to make this work? If not, what's the point of being able to play PS1 games on the PS2? I even went to Wal-mart, but they don't carry PS1 cards anymore.

On your PS3, go to Memory Card Utility on the dashboard and create a virtual PS1 memorycard I think.
