To stream from the PC to xbox windows requires a whole bunch of services running. Sometimes they get restarted or stopped for little reason I can find. Try restarting your PC, try reconfiguring the sharing options in WM11 or the Zune player, whichever you use. That might for them to restart. If you ...

Downloading now. The XBL servers must be getting hammered or something. I am at 5% and it has been going for 20 minutes now.

That right there is the pinnacle of gaming realism. Realism can only go down from here.

Is it just me, or was that kind of rude? I hope it wasn't directed towards me. :(

I thought it was really easy, taking on way too many guy at once. Maybe it's my SD TV but I couldn't tell it was cell shaded, it just looked like bad animated graphics, kind of like a bad version of Deus Ex. I got bored with it really fast and the graphics didn't want to keep me playing. I did like ...

I just downloaded the trial for this. It's a blast! I love it. I might have to get the full game. The trial seems pretty long, what more is in the full game?

I have it for PC and I get frustrated with it for two reasons, one is that it is very graphic intensive and my machine is a few years old and has trouble running it, and two for some reason on my machine the game will just freeze after like 15-30 minutes of play and I have to reboot the game to cont...

I have been drooling over this for so long. They release a screen cap or something every once in a while, just to make sure we don't forget. Oh boy, I want it!!

Just a standard def 480p TV, nothing special. I played it on my HDTV, 1080i, for a little while, I didn't notice anything wrong with that. But I didn't play long.

Very strange, I have bought all the games you have and a few more. I have never noticed a slow down or graphics issues or anything of the sorts on my system. They look and play exactly as they should for me.

Re: More 360 Issues.

He's probably some farmed out telephone support company Microsoft uses, probably in India or someplace like that. Very typical here in the states, and VERY annoying! Thanks to Achilles and Revenant for putting up with my constant messages last night trying to help me resolve the issue. No problem ma...

Rant about local retailer

I live in a fairly small town in New Hampshire, were most towns are small. There is a locally owned and operated gaming retailer in my town, it has been open for the better part of 15 years I would say. I have been going to this place off and on since it opened, trading games, buying games and just ...

That looked like a good idea at first, but after reading all the way it looks like I will have to give up my current online gamertag to get my old achievements back through that process, thus losing all the points I have on that account. Kind of a pain in the butt, I am going to try calling Microsof...

Merging profiles

I have a question I can't seem to find an answer to, maybe one of you guys have tried or seen this done. I have an offline account, one I used to play through 50+ hours of oblivion, it was never online, never had live and has tons of achievements in it for Oblivion, which was the only gave I have pl...
