Bought an old version of Redneck Rampage from an Amazon reseller and got what was basically an OEM demo for $10. I'm pretty sure I could have gotten the full version for $5. Way to go. Am now in an e-mail argument with said reseller because I left them negative feedback. Wish I could have left negative feedback for the manufacturer - oh, wait, I guess I can...that's what the reviews are for.
In other news, want to play Halo 2 with my brother on the other coast, so I'm trying to reactivate my old account. It seems I can't. And I can't create a new account with my old gamertag. This is to stop cheaters, Microsoft tells me. I'm not sure how. Anyways, it wouldn't bother me so much, except I came across this on the Xbox Live website:
"Choosing your Gamertag is one of the most monumental things you'll ever do. It's more important than choosing a college, a spouse, a home. Well, not everyone will feel this is true, but we just want you to know it is a big deal. Mainly because it's your very gamer identity we're dealing with!"
Thanks for telling me how important my gamertag is and then telling me I can't have it!
I suppose most people can't see what I'm bitching about because their Gamertag of choice was already taken.
Mine wasn't, except by me, and now I can't use it, simply because they won't let me reactivate my old account.
And Typepad is freaking out on me and making it really hard to enter this blog entry!
