My wonderful Meg kitty.

(no subject)

This is hysterical.

stonesundial purchased an Xbox 360 for me.

(Yeah, I know. I finally decided that MS consoles are allowed in my collection. I'll get an Xbox later.)

I plug it in, turn it on, and sit through the OS update. Ok. That's fine. I can deal with that. It asked me if I wanted to.

There's a somewhat entertaining welcome video. It hits the end...and...

...?

Nothing's happening...

*button mash*

...nothing.

*make sure the controller's on*

Holy crap, the very first thing an MS console does in my house is CRASH. I think it knows how I feel about it.

On the plus side, I did pick up the games that compelled me to get it. Bully: Scholarship Edition, Dead Rising, and Bioshock: Limited Edition.

(well, Bully wasn't one of them, but I've wanted to play it for a while, so why not for the 360?)

(I still owe you guys a longer post. Work's been busy which has required me to anti-work just as hard and that kills free time)
