  • Keys to a great Xbox 360 Game

    Microsoft has made some great improvements to the Interface on the Xbox 360.  I had written an outline of what I thought made a great Xbox game back in 2004 when Xbox Live had been out about a year and a half.   A few of the items on that list have been fixed with the blade interface on the 360, but some are still left up to the individual ...

  • An end may be near.

    Video games just don't hold the same appeal this days compared to a couple years ago.   I still play my Xbox everyday but some days I only play a few minutes to keep my streak going on 360voice.  Rock Band has been the only recent game to hold my interest for more then a few months.   I feel like there is almost too many games out there.   My ...

  • 360voice API and .NET (Part 1)

    A personal project, GamerScoreGoal.com, that I have been working involves tracking Xbox live GamerScore.  One of my personal favorite Xbox sites is 360voice.com where your Xbox 360 blogs about your playing habits.  360 voice has an API set including one that returns the GamerScore history for a particular Gamertag. I ended up building a ...

  • Xbox Warranty Return December

    I've made a lot of trips to my local UPS store this month.   Most of them dealt with the normal shipping and receiving of Christmas gifts.  But I've made five trips for warranty replacements of Xbox related items.  I've picked up my empty box for the racing wheel so it doesn't start my house on fire, an empty box for my broken Xbox 360, a box ...

  • GamerScoreGoal mid December Update

    This weekend I updated GamerScoreGoal(GSG) with my latest code.   It didn't change much visually from the version that has been online for the last month, but there are a lot of improvements in the back end. This project has really been teaching me a lot about myself as a programmer.  Mostly that I don't have much experience in creating UI and ...

  • Xbox 360: Three red lights flash on the Right of Light: Round 2

    It's happened again.  My Xbox 360 froze up when I was playing Assassin's Creed.  Then when I rebooted the 360 it started playing the opening animation but never made it all the way though.   It did this a couple times then I let it rest for about a half hour disconnected from the power supply.  I reconnected the power ...

  • Vision for GamerScoreGoal.com

    I set a goal for 2007 of getting a total of 20,000 Gamerscore on my Xbox 360.  The last couple months I have become obsessed with reaching my goal and I needed a good way to track my progress.   I was also coveting the API Samurai badge on 360voice.com, you know that place where you Xbox 360 blogs about what games you have played.  That and ...

  • I had a bad feeling.

    An update to the 360voice main blog back on Oct 24th had a comment that they were working on a new feature.   I had a sinking feeling that it would be related to what I was doing at Gamerscoregoal.com.  360Voice.com has announced their new Challenge system.   It's a system were you invite a few of your friends to a timed Gamerscore ...

  • Call of Duty 4

    This is going to be the first holiday season in the last couple years where I actually had to limit myself and decide months in advance what game I'm going to pick up.   Well this Call of Duty 4 comes out and I'm going to pick it up.   There was a great beta test for the Xbox 360 a couple months back that really sold me on this ...

  • Obsession

    Hello.  My gamertag is Carsinigin and I'm obsessed with video games.   I just bought Shadow Run at full price. I swore to myself that I would wait until it was reduced or I could get it though GameFly.  As I got back into my car, in the Best Buy parking lot, I realized that I had just purchased Forza 2 from GameFly and that ...
