Just to bring this thread theme back for a second, while I was circumcising a little guy this afternoon while listening to Pandora, the song "Everybody Hurts" by REM came on. If there were ever a song that felt appropriate to do a circ to, that's it.

Just got signed out for another Dashboard update. Thanks for scheduling it during halftime of the game I was watching on the ESPN3 app for sports and sporting events.

Or just don't be in a party. Be warned that if you're playing in a public game, you'll have to hear everyone else that isn't muted on that game chat.

I've been doing this with a buddy that isn't in the preview on Borderlands lately.
I can't get any chat to work at all with my non-previewed friends. It's annoying as hell.

I played some Co-Op Dead Rising 2 with non preview folks and in game chat worked just fine.

re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

Yeah. I figured out my mistake -- I was inviting my friends to chat before launching the game. I didn't realize that constituted a Party Chat even if you don't invite to Party. (Maybe that's Private Chat rather than Game Chat). Either way, I got it to work eventually.

Hey, has anyone taken their controller apart to clean them? My 4 year-old son, in his never-ending quest to play Lego Star Wars for every waking hour, has managed to make some of those buttons super-sticky. I've seen on You Tube someone take theirs apart, but I'm still a little nervous about trying it.

How did you get so many so fast? I think I signed up around the same time and just got to 500 today. I think I did the searches every day and the other special offers as well for the 3 points each.

I can get 20 a day for searches. Looking at CAG, that number is different for everyone.

re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

How do you turn off the Xbox 360 wireless microphone? I press the power button on the bottom, but the lights still flash. I try holding the button down for a bit, but that doesn't do it either. Microsoft's support page says it turns off after about 15 min of inactivity, but I don't want to waste battery life. My only solution for now is to remove the battery and reinsert it. Any tips?

Hold the power button for 2 seconds. They'll flash a couple of times then shut off.

re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

I've taken apart Wavebirds, Xbox-S controllers and a Sixaxis controller. Sixaxis aside, the other two were pretty simple. I can't comment on the 360 specifically though. Just keep track of screws and placement.

I don't recommend anyone ever taking apart a Sixaxis/DS3. Holy fuck, you take out the last screw and the thing literally falls apart into a hundred pieces. Not good when you need to see where things go before you begin to remove them.

What's the actual question? I believe you need a Torx set to get the screws out.

FU 2 demo was good. I'm glad they
Spoiler:
brought back chopping off limbs/heads with the saber, the first time I did it i ended up cutting 3 stormtroopers heads off at once and couldn't believe it. I didn't know they were putting that back in for this one after leaving it out of the first one.


Day 1 purchase for me.

That's one of the things that bugged me the most about the first one. "Why can I slice these R2 units in half but not any of the Stormtroopers?"

Looks like it still got a Teen rating, though.

The question is (or perhaps should have read) : Is it pretty simple and easy to take apart and clean 360 wireless controllers? And what screwdriver should I use (though perhaps you just answered that; I have no idea what a Torx is)?

You can get a set of them for about $5 at Home Depot.

Perhaps I already have one. I proudly possess what Jeff Spicoli would only characterize as a gnarly set of tools.

edit :Just looked online. I have stuff like that.
