It got a E74 error so I guess its going to go meet its maker.

Anyone know how long MS takes to send replacements/fix 360s?

Took me exactly 11 days from the day it shit on me to the day it was delivered back to my apartment. Of the six Xbox's that I know of that have broken down personally among my friends, all but 1 of them was replaced with a completely new model instead of just repaired.

A). I, too, have trouble seeing all of the pictures in the first post sometimes.

B). My gamertag comes from when my friends and I used to system-link original Xboxes to play Halo. Something about getting beaten down by a hot woman made matches even better. Everything is always more fun with a hot woman.

C). I thought I was doing well with 400something, I gotta step up my game.

D). I'm feeling generous and want to throw in an extra prize for whoever wins! I'm offering up a copy of Guitar Hero III for Wii. Just the game, of course, not a game and a guitar.

I need to rush through Aliens vs Predator for the achievements so I can send it back in time to get Metro 2033. I fear if I have a game out next Monday they wont send it to me for weeks, so I probably need to get AVP mailed out Wednesday.

Sign me up! I'll get started today, even though some of you guys have a head start on me... is there a forum post with the rules? I hear you guys mention "baby" games, what are some examples of these games? Avatar the Last Airbender I'm assuming and what else...?

No baby games. The staff was wrong. Literally the only game that is off limits is Fallout 3 for PC. Anything else goes, so if you really want my autograph, bust out your copies of Avatar and Backyard Football!

I own neither, and probably never will. I own almost 200 XB 360 games, and even though I bought some shitty ones for achievements, I still have some sort of standard. The lowest I've sunk is CSI, but at least it took some time to get them all. I refuse to pay more than 20 bucks for a game just to get it's achievements.

You better pace yourself Jaguar, at this rate you'll be burned out in a couple days.

Here's my ironic achievement story:

The only achievements I ever went out of my way for were in a game I didn't really like.

Bet you can guess which one Ex, you might even be able to guess which achievements!

Oh you motherfucker! I played that whole shit on hard on the PS3 for a stupid fucking platinum. That better not work for PS3 or you might get Back to the Future NES sent to you just on principle.

Oh yeah. Whoever wins (= Loses!) my prize, let me know what consoles you have and I will choose bundled gifts accordingly. If u have a PSP and PS3 u will most likely be receiving a SEGA GENESIS COLLECTION and STREET FIGHTER 4 on the PS3. If you have a PC, you will probably receive the Sims 2 or DIRT. If you have PS2 you will probably receive God of War 1 and 2, depending on how much I like you. If you want a N64 (minus power supply) you might receive that. Go forth everyone, lose this comp, I dare you.

I got everyone added and all the prizes updated in the OP

I gave up on Aliens vs Predator. I finished the human campaign and got one achievement in the Predator's. It's just not a good game and I cant bring myself to play it anymore.

This competition is going to be hilarious when someone from like Europe or South America wins, and the cost of shipping far exceeds the actual value of the prizes.

I think in that case they'll just get all the codes for the downloadable games. I get a discount with UPS from work but international shipping is still crazy expensive.
