The Timeline of Stallion83
|You never forget your first|
November 22nd - That same night his brand spankin' new Xbox 360 gets the red rings of death. Raymond really couldn't believe that he was on the telephone with Xbox support the very day it launched. He played it for all of about 2 hours total before it died. Luckily he had more 360's to choose from as Ray bought several to resell on ebay. He unboxed a core system and kept gaming like nothing happened. A few days later, Ray's coffin arrived for his bricked premium Xbox 360. It took a few weeks, but he got a brand new system back in return. It broke and got repaired a few more times and is now damaged beyond repair. He still uses that core system about every other day, but it has been repaired a few times now as well. He has unlocked more achievements with the ugly duckling than any other Xbox 360 he owns. Call of Duty 2, which was the killer app launch title for Microsoft's dysfunctional new hardware, had completely broken online multiplayer out of the box, However, it was now the standard for single player campaign First-Person Shooters. The smoke effects at the time were unbelievable and the gun-play was amazing.
December 27th - Ray nabs his first completed Xbox 360 game. King Kong based on the 2005 movie was the title. Anyone in the world can now clearly see ones progress thanks to the gamerscore system and Xbox LIVE.
January 31st - Completes Call of Duty 2 on the eve of his 23rd birthday, which happens to be the title that got him completely hooked on achievements and gamerscore.
February - Raymond crosses the 10,000 gamerscore mark. 5 digits seemed like a lot and it was then as there were limited amounts of games to play.
February 25th - Full Auto becomes the 10th Xbox 360 game he completes.
