i'm so frickin mad right now. i spent like 9 hours walking to blockbuster. i was so excited. i just got an xbox 360 from my dad for my birthday, and i was ready to join the gaming world. ready to strike out into high definition, and tons of migs and megs of memories for gameplay. so i bought two games. tony hawk project 8 for the 360, cuz i've played and loved every tony hawk game ever. and red ninja for the xbox, cuz i remembered trailers for that game being totally sweet.
and then i walked the whole long way back home.
put in project 8, and... a screen showed that said "please insert this game into an xbox 360 console". ... excuse me? i pulled it out and reloaded it. same thing. SON OF A BITCH! so i turned off the system, rebooted, and put the game back in. this time it loaded. but all the videos were choppy as hell. i realized the game was prolly scratched, but it was playing now, so i was happy. i whip through training, get into the first level of gameplay, and start having a grand ol time. then i wallplant the gate to go into area two AND THE SYSTEM CRASHES!!! and now whenever i load the game back up (it still takes like 3 or 4 tries each time to even be recognized) it just crashes once it starts to load my old game.
so fine, i think, i'll just play my other game. but no. it's not backwards compatible.
thank you xbox. you suck. but blockbuster you suck worse for not warning me a game wasn't backward compatible, and for selling me a game that was defective. you better goddamn let me trade it in for a clean copy, and a different old game.
