I accidentally did something similar with NCAA 12. I switched coaching jobs just f'ing around and I forgot about the damn auto save.

I was like

^LOL!

Over a drunken weekend my best friend and I played Madden like 02 on PS2, I think, non-stop he was Offense and I was Defense. We did like a bunch of seasons. We would drink, play go crash for awhile then come back we were bored and broke. Will come Sunday night I was getting tired of it and want to go out, so I stood up and walked over to the wall switch to flash the lights to say like enough lets go. Well that switch was wired to the wall outlet of the PS2 as soon as I flicked it all data lost. We were so pissed!

So As I said before I bought a new Xbox but I need to get my data off my old HDD to the new hard drive. So in order to do this you have to bu ya $20 transfer cable from Xbox. F that!

I bought it transferred the data and then returned the cable, I would probably would have kept it if it allowed to still use my old HDD but no you can only transfer with that cable. Talk about nickle and dimeing you.

Yeah I had to do the same thing when I bought a bigger HD. Sucks.

Hopefully you returned the cable. IT been one thing if the cable allowed you to still "talk/save" with the original HDD but it doesn't.

Also the whole reason I bought it was just to transfer GOW 2 to my new box. Wel lcome to find out when I sold my broken Xbox I forgot to pull out the disc, god I have had a bad gaming week.


SPECIAL ALERT: I have been meaning to bring this up for years but keep forgetting, don't let your Xbox Live membership auto renew (you literally need to call to ensure this doesn't happen). Instead let it cancel and wait a few days they will send you a bunch of great offers to renew. I just got 12 months for $25.

I'm loving SR3, I still love GTA too but this just takes the concept to a whole new level.

Actually I recently downloaded Midnight Club LA to get my GTA fix. It's all racing so gets tiring after a while but still fun. And most important I feel like I'm playing GTA again. Almost launched my controller last night, always a good sign.

And I'm heading for Saints Row next...

This should really be illegal. I should be able to cancel the service within the service. Makes me angry!

I know it pisses me off as well and they try to so hard to get you to renew. It is annoying.

As far as SR3 do you need to play 2 to understand/enjoy 3?

re: New Games on the Horizon (the video game thread)

I've been having problems lately with not being able to private chat on the 360. My friends can hear me just fine, but I can't hear them at all.

I think it might have to do with my NAT being at moderate. I've tried every solution out there, still can't get NAT to open. Any ideas?
