E3 Wrap Up - Microsoft

Posted by tylerh1701, in Xbox 360, Xbox One, Gaming News 18 June 2014 - - - - - - · 1096 views

Well E3 is long since over but I thought I'd post my takeaways of it, specifically the conferences since that is mostly what I watched. I was going to post them all in one blog, but each wrap up started to run a little long, so I'm going to break them up into 3 separate posts.


Microsoft wasn't lying when they said they we're doing "Games...

Frequent readers already know the drawn out story of my Xbox 360 and getting banned from Xbox Live, but if you need a refresher on it you can read all about it here , here , and here . Well last week I finally wrapped up my time with my 360 and sold it to my brother. Soon after the ban I also got rid of my Windows Phone 7, which I was a regular game on as...

Fable Anniversary Review

Posted by tylerh1701, in Xbox 360 21 April 2014 - - - - - - · 1182 views

I never owned an Xbox 1 original Xbox, so I never got around to playing the original Fable. My cousin sang its praises and sunk hundreds of hours into the game, so I was always quite interested in checking it out. I've had Fable 2 and 3 in my Xbox 360 backlog for quite a while, but never played them since I didn't want to play the games out of order. So...

My XBLA Backlog

Posted by tylerh1701, in Xbox 360 10 April 2014 - - - - - - · 1070 views

After a few months of focus, I'm getting down to the final stretches of my XBLA backlog. Just counted up, and I have 33 games left to play. My goal is to be done with the backlog by the end of May, but it may end up stretching into June a little bit. One nice thing is that a lot of these games are rather short and I can get through an entire game in a...

In true CAG fashion, I'm way behind in writing up my last 2 blog posts to recap my gaming year of 2013. (At least I'm still not as bad as CheapyD with the 2013 Cheapy Awards). This post it to highlight my three least favorite games I played in 2013. Previously I highlighted my biggest disappointments and surprises of 2013. As always, this is a list of...

What are you playing this weekend? - XBLA Backlog Destruction Edition

Posted by tylerh1701, in Xbox 360 28 February 2014 - - - - - - · 1140 views

It's past noon, I'm gonna do the post.

My goal is to be completely done with my Xbox 360 by May of this year, so I've got some work to do on my digital backlog (I sold off most of my retail backlog except for a few games I was very interested in).

Since I started this, I've blown through a ton of games over the last couple weeks. It helps that these ga...

Eh, I've waited long enough. Time to uslurp DaddyBoJangles glory again.

As the title says, this weekend isn't anything special for me since I'm passing on next gen consoles for the time being. PS4 looks awesome and I can't wait to get my hands on one, but with my PS3 and 360 backlog I just can't justify picking one up at this time. It will be at least a...

So yesterday I posted the story of how my Xbox 360 ban happened . Today I thought I'd share with you the damage that was done by this ban. Prepare yourself for a lot of lists.

If you don't know, when you get your account banned on Xbox you lose your licenses for all the digital content you own. It actually seems kind of fucked up that they can do that...
