Playing in ME3 and just before I can see the green ending (Oh, btw, they extended the me3 endings, free download from the market place), it freezes and dies.

ARG! soooo frustrating.

And they want me to have to pay for this repair as well, fair enough the first time, it was out of warranty, but the replacement needs to live for more than a few months!

The endings still feel unsatisfying and basically suck massive floppy donkey cock but it explains it alittle better.
The green ending is the least shit.
I'd recommend investing in desktop parts and putting together an overclocked rig. Its not as hard as people make out. Its what I did afew months ago and combined with a sensor for my xbox controller, windows 7, pinnacle profiler, Steam sales and Kaspersky I haven't looked back.
I used a magazine to help me choose the parts for overclocking. I picked the case I felt would give me the most room and airflow incase I wanted further upgrades.
Its alittle costly at first but when you take into account that you'll never have to buy the newest console ever again, it won't wear out fast like consoles and the cheapness of games on steam the savings soon outweigh the cost.
The most you'll have to pay after putting it together with the software is renewing anti-virus which will take about two years and any upgrades you choose to make which in comparison to buying another machine entirely is a hell of alot cheaper and won't often be necessary. Also I don't need heating in my room, this thing keeps it toasty with the window shut. Because I overclocked it it expels a fuck ton of heat. Recommend keeping it in a big room if you can, failing that get a fan with the window open like I did.
I can give you the name and issue number of the mag I used if you like.

I don't have an interpretation. Thank you for the complimentary Rabbi status though, I'm suitably flattered. I'll get back to you on your inability to use the internet later. Busy having a life here. I hope that you understand.

I've still got mine from the Crash Bandicoot days, I hesitate to say if it still works because I really don't know. It's bunged up in the loft with a load of other old stuff...

Ah, Crash, Croc and Spyro. Those were the days :')
When I was young, there was a god with infinite power protecting me. Is there anyone else who felt that way? And was sure about it? but the first time I fell in love, I was thrown down - or maybe I broke free - and I bade farewell to God and became human. Now I don't have God's protection, and I walk on the ground without wings, but I don't regret this hardship. I want to live as a person. -Arina Tanemura

Very true.

We certainly don't see Microsoft slapping any kind of guarantee on any of their proprietary bullshit do we?

Well, maybe a "certification of not quite shit or barely functional shit" perhaps...

I would be willing to bet that my NES that I got back in 1986 still works, if I could find the cords for it that is.

Can it really be considered sexism if it's true?

If you go to the XBOX game market place you can find the newer 360 versions of Crash and Spyro. I love video games, but I wish I had the time to play like I used to to Sad
