I get my copy of Skyrim today! I ordered it off Amazon as soon as it came up for preorder. So frickin' excited! It should be here any minute. I just checked my shipping and it is in town, now just gotta wait for it to get here. I have played all the Elder Scrolls and this one looks better than all of them combined. You can kill dragons and get married and become a werewolf! The graphics look beautiful too.

Anyone else getting in on this?

Some of us, yup. Mine's coming in via Amazon, but nobody will be at the apartment to receive it. I'm mildly apprehensive that UPS will take it back to their shipping factory, but odds are they'll just drop it off at our community office.

I'm not sure I've ever been this excited for a game before, lol.

I just started using GameFly and Arkham City came in 3 days ago, but Skyrim is next in line. Arkham City is too awesome to send back just to get Skyrim, plus I see myself keeping Skyrim for a couple months.

Getting it for the brat, not that he deserves it or anything, though I bet I will end up playing it too.

I got my copy yesterday. My xbox died immediately after I started to play it. I'm talking three red flashing lights. Sigh.


Fortunately I made my housemate let me use his xbox for a few hours. It's gooooooooood. Smiley: drool2

blown up.

Hellz yea! I got the CE of this, can't wait for my gold controller Smiley: lol
Word on the street is Skyward Sword is somewhere around 40+ hours long...I'm still trying to move stuff in my schedule to let me get the most game play if this turns out to be true.

Well, I'll have to beat it normally, then go for the 100%, then do 3 heart challenge, then play it again... So I'll get plenty of playtime out of it regardless. Smiley: sly

3 heart challenge? If that's what I think it is, isn't it technically impossible?


edit: never mind, I just remembered you don't have to pick up the Boss' heart container.

Not impossible, but horribly masochistic.

No I was just referring to the fact that you get a heart container after every boss. I just forgot you don't have to pick up the container to finish the dungeon. Smiley: glare

I know. My only point is that I think I'd rather stab myself with pins than attempt a 3-heart challenge.

Definitely. That's kind of like willfully playing "Demons Souls" (or whatever it is). F*ck that sideways.

It's worse. It's like playing Demons souls naked, using only your fist for a weapon...

Haha. Avoid like the plague.

All my plans for games this month are all ****** up. Student finance screwed me over, leaving me with not even enough for rent until they pay me what they owe. Sigh.

I still treated myself to Skyrim though because **** it I deserve a break. That went out the window...

Smiley: frown Yeah, I know the feeling. I'm paying for Skyrim by shaving $10 off my weakly food budget for the next 6 weeks. I'm fortunate, though.

Was your 360 at least still under warranty?

I'm not sure how expensive shipping is, but I'll fix it for free if you care to go through the trouble of shipping it.

No Smiley: mad it was an old one. I got it in 2008 or something. Impressive it's lasted this long, tbh. I'm convinced it's because I never connected it to Live, though.

Skyrim needed to install an update on it. The update installed and then almost immediately afterwards I got the red ring. Smiley: motz


My cousin said I can have his spare one, I just need to find the time to go to his house in London to get it. Smiley: glare

3 years isn't old for a 360. I have one that's 7 and running like a champ.

95% of the time they go RROD because the x-clamps (clamps holding the heat sinks in place) exert too much pressure on the board. The heat from playing for extended periods of time exacerbates this problem and the solder cracks due to the flexing. Based on your error code it's a simple issue of reflowing the correct component. It's really easy to fix them.

There's a $15 kit you can install, in addition to some sanding, that will basically keep a 360 from red ringing until the next generation of consoles come out (at least).

I'm not getting any error code, though. I never have. It's just three red flashing lights. There's no problem with the power supply as far as can tell. So from what I've read online that means it's f*cked.

I've seen very few cases where it actually gives a primary error code. What you need to look for is the secondary code.

Hold down the sync button and press the eject button 4 times in a row slowly. A different amount of lights (the 4 sections of the power ring) will light up each time. 1=1, 2=2, 3=3, 4=0. The 4 digit code shown this way is the secondary code and will let you know what is the likely cause of the red ring.

That really sucks Nil, sorry.

I know the modern 360s are way better where the failure rates are concerned, but I'm still afraid to get one because of the RRoD.

That's really nice of your cousin though. :)

Where are you in the UK anyway?

Thanks Kaain, I didn't know that. I'll check it out.

Idiggory, I'm currently based in Canterbury. You anywhere nearby?
