    Ever have times when all your experiences with game equipment just end in failure?



    First I had that incident a while back with the defective PS3. Sent it back for refund & ordered another one, which was supposed to be here by the 30th- yesterday. But no sign of it; already contacting the bastard about this system (and I wish that wasn't the second time I'd had to say that).

    SO in the meantime I thought I'd use my X-mas gift cards and buy a new Nintendo DS Lite, since my original snapped in half a while back & I sold it off for parts. But all the stores around here are SOLD OUT of the damn thing. I've checked stuff online and there aren't any within 70 MILES of my location.

    Finally I tried to use my Wii to download some new Virtual Console stuff, only to find that my Wi-Fi USB Adapter isn't working the way it should. So I'm 0 for 3.


    Apparently the Gaming Gods don't want me to expand my current collection. I'll have to make an offering to put karma back in order....

    Dude, you have NO IDEA the ordeals I had to deal with this past year.

    -Nintendo's performance at E3 was bad. In fact, E3 itself wasn't very good. I'm starting to renounce my faith in the little company that can't.
    -Broke a Gamecube controller after I got mad at Super Smash Bros Brawl, had to get a new one.
    -Broke my Xbox 360 controller at Soul Calibur IV, had to get a new one.
    -My Nintendo WiFi Adaptor sucks half an hour after it's plugged into my computer.
    -My Virtual Console part of my Wii is STILL f'ed up for some reason (I DON'T want to replace my Wii, I really don't).
    -Realized that the Wii Zapper SUCKS.
    -WORST THING TO HAPPEN TO ME GAMING-WISE: My 360 red-ringed on me (well, it had a hardware failure), and after half a month of dealing with Microsoft's bullshit customer support, I got a new one.

    I DARE someone to try and top this.

    No, I just get pissed off really easily. Breaking a controller seldom happens.

    Wow. In 30 years of my life, I have never broken a controller. Hell, I play fighting games to relieve stress. Time to get off the juice dude.

    If you mean that I take steroids, then you're wrong. I may get angry from time to time, but even I know when not to do something stupid.

    No, but I take therapy instead. :p 

    What I should have meant to say was, "I get pissed off when I can't seem to get something done when I've tried every other alternative solution."

    Most of these non sense. Nintendo's showing at E3 affected you? You REALIZED the Zapper sucks? YOU broke a controller? All those are ridiculous. The only one that's actually happened to you is the Red Ringed 360. Calm down with your peripherals.

    NINTENDOS' E3 HATH RUiND MYIES FAITH! :lol

    1.) Don't break the controllers. At $30-60.00 a pop, just ain't worth it.

    2.) Format the Wii. Just like a computer. Wipe it out, start over fresh. Once you've paid for your downloads (Internet Channel included), you're entitled to download them again, for free.

    Seriously, it might help work out the kinks.

    Had 3 PS2's and 2 360's die on me, one of them died twice and red ringed the 2nd time.

    My original Xbox finally crapped out.

    My Gamecube takes about 20 minutes to get going

    Somehow a ton of superglue spilled all over my PSP screen & Dpad

    My SNES works like fucking new!
