    Too bad DK didnt come with the Rare purchase.

    On the original Xbox, if you saved a playlist and named it "Eggsbox", it would trigger a list of everyone who worked on the console.

    They should give everyone that controls the Stallion83 account free gold for life as well then. There's no way only one person uses that account.
  • jesper-ingemansson - March 4, 2014 3:21 a.m.

    No, there's only one person controlling that account. -.-
  • Earthbound_X - March 4, 2014 10:52 a.m.

    I refuse to believe that, the main guy has a social life and goes to college. Yet his account would have to be on 24/7 in order to have that score that he does. More then one person has to be using the Stallion83 account.

    Not really. He seems to prioritize quick points over the longer tasks which usually bog you down. If you just target points over 100% games, it is feasible. You take one of those shitty games that gives you 1000G in an hour or two and play it in 4 regions, you maximize gain and time.
  • Earthbound_X - March 5, 2014 5:57 p.m.

    I'm looking at his list right now, and he has a lot of games that take time to 100%, fully done. And I've yet to see the account offline once. So you're saying this one guy plays that account 24/7 without sleep or eating? Plus with his Girlfriend, social life, and college( I admit I don't know if he's still in college, but he was the last time I checked) he still can play 24/7? I don't buy it.
  • Earthbound_X - March 5, 2014 5:58 p.m.

    I'm not saying it wrong to share the account, but he should stop acting like he's the only one doing it.

    I knew most of this. The only one that shocked me was the first. If you want to be an achievement hunter than too bad 'cos that guy's the king of them all.

    "but presumably reconsidered after realizing such a feat would've probably involved fighting notoriously feisty Nintendo president Hiroshi Yamauchi to the death in some sort of cage match scenario." Good ol Yamauchi man, Iwata is too modest, if Yamauchi was atleast still a spokesperson he wouldve shat talk the other companies like crazy. Here's another tidbit, apparently when Microsoft bought Rare, they assumed that they bought Donkey Kong as well till Rare told them they didnt have the rights.

    I had heard somewhere recently that supposedly, the failure rate of 360s had been of around 40% But I dunno if this is talking about overall systems since the console came out, or only the first year batch of consoles. Still.. damn, 23% confirmed is a lot as well, all things considered, I'm lucky my 360 took more than 4 years before it finally red ringed XD
  • shawksta - March 3, 2014 5:47 p.m.

    Mines didnt Red Ring, the disk drive was being annoyingly unresponsive after i dont know how long, by then we already decided to buy the Slim. Any past problems i had was eventually solved by shoving Qtips inside it :P There was a time the thing actually Red Ringed, but we took off the plug immediatley and then somehow it didnt stay, it never happened afterwards.

    "Live user N4SIR kept his connection active by staying logged on to Halo 2's multiplayer mode, and managed to hang in there until May 10, when he found himself booted from the service once and for all. Maybe someone down at Microsoft forgot to literally pull the plug? " When they anouced the end of the original Xbox live servers, a big event was organised by the halo community as a goodbye to halo 2's multiplayer. They were going to play halo 2 until they were kicked at what they thought would be around midnight... but they weren't. they realized that instead of shutting off the server, they just made it refuse any new connections. so if you stayed connected, you could keep playing, but if you'd quit, you couldn't come back. éthen there were people keeping their console on for so long, some had an internet failure others just quit. until there were two left and they played then one had a power outage and the last bid the loved game farewell and quit. Also these people where missing out on the Halo Reach beta which started while some people where still hanging on to Halo 2.

    Umm... You have some of your "facts" wrong bud... -GamerTag was and will always be APACHE N4SIR, (not just N4SIR). -I "hanged in there" (as you put it) till May 11th not the tenth. -We didn't miss out on the Halo Reach Beta, we (well some of us) were playing it on alternate gamer profiles. References: I *AM* APACHE N4SIR... Go ahead and contact me on XBL... Ill answer. I would like to thank ___ Nux from Pa for linking me to his reading as he battles with insomnia lol

    That first part between cotation marks was a cote from the article... I was correcting the writer but it seems he was even more wrong than I thought ;p
  • theguyinthecloset - November 30, 2013 5:31 p.m.

    Also, you are a legend. Your Gamertag will forever live on in the community. I followed the story as it was happening and I was cheering you guys on.

    "Microsoft briefly considered buying Sega and Nintendo." How much would Nintendo cost?
  • shawksta - March 3, 2014 5:47 p.m.

    There's word right now that Nintendo is literally worth more than Sony. It could be just rumor ruckus, but goddamn.
