I know this was a couple months ago but my brother finally got around to messing with it, not entirely sure how he did it, but through chatting with Microsoft support and sending them some pictures and some other things, they e-mailed him a valid code and he now has a year of Xbox Live.

Are you serious? I spent hours with customer support over this and all I got was a line that my case would be escalated to "Consumer Advocacy" which is a total bullshit line they feed people to placate them. Whenever I have problems with Xbox Live codes, I get the run around from CS like I'm some kind of 12 year old trying to steal free Xbox Live codes.

 

I want to try again to get my codes to work, but I know I'll just waste time with Microsoft's crappy CS reps.

I've never heard of people posting videos on youtube doing that until now, nor why people enjoy that, sorry can't help you there.

But I do enjoy the show, excluding the newer seasons, so I guess I'm a brocomotive? (Never actually heard of the term)


Ah, maybe one day I'll find someone who can explain those videos to me.

Toy story game worked, just needed new batteries and I've been looking for a replacement cover for Races, Rescues, and Runaways.


Is the Thomas video for someone else, or are you a brocomotive (an adult Thomas fan)? I recently discovered that there are literally thousands of videos of people on Youtube that film themselves making Thomas toys crash - all these videos have MILLIONS of views each. I've been wondering why these videos are popular - I can't comprehend how a video of a grown man crashing a Thomas toy can garner more views than some famous musicians. Maybe you can shed some light?

I ended up paying $100 on Craigslist for mine, and it was 100% complete down to the registration card and envelope. I played it for a few hours, got my fix, and decided I should probably sell it. It's really cool, but I had no comfortable way to play it. In any case, the boot sequence for the VT is something every gamer should experience once - flicking all those pointless switches feels so good and I don't know why.

I don't know how they come up with their prices, but $51.19 was fine for me. Estarland had the box for $32 shipped so I just purchased that. $88 after tax for a complete Steel Battalion seems pretty damn good.


Did the box come with the controller manual? You'll def need that if you try to play the game (there is no tutorial).
