Thanks to #halo4 my gamer score is now in the devil’s hands.
It’s finally here! I unbox the Halo 4 Limited edition Halo 4 console and Limited edition of the game.
It’s here! Video review soon! #Halo4
Great news on the Xbox front after 3 weeks since my initial repair request. So today I got a call I couldn’t take at work until lunch. I also got an email immediately after from Kris at the Microsoft Customer Advocacy and Exception Management Team.
I called him back at lunch with his direct line he gave me.
The issue with my Xbox was that it was a “French console”. Meaning when I got my original Xbox repaired back in 2009, the replacement they sent me was a French based system. It was a weird mix up.
The issue was, when trying to process the service request, the system could not process a label since it was trying to send out a “out of region” label. Kris told me that to speed the process, he is bypassing the repair system and sending me a brand new Elite system today. When I get it, I just send my French console to him with the same box, with the shipping label he provides and some extra packing tape.
He said I should get it either by the end of this week or Monday. He will call me after work and follow up with my case since he is personally handling it.
He apologized up and down and was amazing to talk to and work with. I now understand that my situation was very unique and why normal support lines couldn’t help me.
A month ago my Xbox 360 was unable to read any disc, sometimes the tray refused to open or close. If I put in any disc and it doesn’t say “play disc” on the Dashboard, just “open tray”. Also, if and when it happens to actually read a disc, if I play it for awhile it will randomly stop my game and I get a disc error.
Since I’m in the beta dashboard program, I can’t simply submit a regular repair request. I had to go through the Microsoft Connect site and go through this whole extra process. This is after Xbox Support on twitter, gave me the runaround because they were using different terms than what was actually on the site. Very confusing. I called them out on it too, since I figured it out before they actually had the right answer.
Not very amused.

In one week I went from 3/4th of the way through General Grade 2 rank to General Grade 4 tonight. Keeping up with the challenges really helps. Another boost was this weekend when I got a huge 30k+ credit jackpot. I will reach the Legend rank before Halo 4 comes out!

And here we have what looks like the box art for Halo 4, as assembled by NeoGAFer spawn031. An email from Microsoft went out with fragments of this image, titled “Your piece of the Halo 4 puzzle.” Each email came with a bit of this image, which spawn031 assembled and monsterfracas shared. Hey, now.
I cannot wait for this!
Finally completed my Stargate DVD collection! I now have every season of every show and all the movies. And I never bought any of them at full price.
Stargate Universe seasons 1 & 2 are on sale at Best Buy until 5/5 for $14.99/ea. Plus I used my Viggle points for $25 Best Buy gift card and $15 in Reward Zone savings… so all of this cost me $13!

As Halo creators Bungie say their last goodbyes to the series they created back in the 1990s, the developer has released a record of some multiplayer statistics gathered over the years. They are mind-blowing.
