My xbox 360 died a while back. you guessed it, red ring of death. My warranty was long expired and I've been without an xbox for a good while. I'm finally scrounging up the money to get a new one. anyywhoo, if you gents could tell me what I've missed in the virtual world for the last 8 months or so - the "must have games" and whatnot. I need to be enlightened.

:-P

At least put COD MW2 on there, that game is wicked fun with friends. I would have put Dragon Age but I think its better as a PC game. Left 4 Dead 2 too I guess.

well there is this one game that not too many play, i doubt you even ever heard of it. its called call of duty modern warfare 2- i mean there's a chance it might even be a waste of money but you may find some entertainment in it

Have you tried the towel solution?
I know it sounds stupid but a friend saw it on youtube, tried it and worked!
Search on youtube, its something like turning your xbox on inside a towel for 15 minutes, there is also a solution opening the xbox and wiping some kind of "silicone" that leaks because of the overheating.
Microsoft said that if you try these home solutions you get your warranty expired, but that isn't your case so you haven't got anything to lose.
First try the towel and if you're curious/desperate/bored etc try the other solution, but first look it up on youtube xD

i got the red ring of death multiple times until my xbox didnt work at all. then i didnt play it for about 3 or 4 months. then i tried turning it back on and its worked ever since. that was over a year ago. im magic.

assassins creed 2 is very meh, dragon age origins is good if you're into that kinda thing, and call of duty: modern warfare 2 is the most overblown piece of shit game i've ever come across

This too.

And ODST if your into Halo and have some friends that'll play it with you. I guess MW2's alright.

TS, just remember that if you ever get a new Xbox 360 it'll come with three years of coverage against Red Ring.

And I'm not quite sure how the whole towel thing works. I've heard that the RRoD happens because the system overheats but never turns itself off, thus what I'll call the thermostat breaks. Then any time you try to play the system either tells you you can't or it overheats because it doesn't do anything to cool itself.

If I'm right....then how does doing something intended to heat your Xbox help the cooling problem?

Do you realize that you could simply get it repaired by Microsoft for free? Anything to do with the red ring of death is covered.

http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/nxe/LiveIDSignIn.aspx?redirectUrl=http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/nxe/registerdevice.aspx?step=repair

Just two weeks ago my 360 red ringed. I've had to send it in for "repair" before for the red ring, so I knew what to do. For the second time, I easily contacted them and got a free "repair." I sent it in two Mondays ago, and received it this Wednesday. The reason I say "repair" is because, in my experience, they don't repair your 360, they just send you a different one (refurbished I think). But, you keep your hard drive so it doesn't really matter.

Forgot to mention: you don't need a warranty for this. I don't have one.
