NHL Network?

21 April 2009 - 09:29 AM

Any idea if Game 3 will be on NHL Network? I have DirecTV in Dallas and they picked up the feed from FSN-D for Saturdays game. Neither the NHL nor NHLNetwork website indicated that they would do this.

Any idea if it will happen again? I will be in class from 7-8:30-9p and would love to watch the recording of it but I am not getting my hopes up.

Why Versus would not show the defending Stanley Cup champion is just crazy....

My new jersey arrived just in time for the Playoffs

16 April 2009 - 10:41 AM

My Datsyuk jersey (Red, Home, Premier) arrived in the mail yesterday, just in time for the playoffs. Woo hoo! This is coming after a disappointing purchase in April from the NHL.com shop.

It has been said many times, but it should be said again...DO NOT BUY JERSEYS FROM NHL.COM! Unless they are authentic, I cannot vouche for those ($320, yikes!). In any case, the customizations that NHL.COM does on their Premier jerseys are absolutely laughable at best. Fortunately, I bitched enough and they refunded me the customization since those jerseys are non-returnable.

If you want a jersey and are unable to make it to the arena, buy from www.sportsk.com. The jerseys are the real thing, no cheap knock offs. Customizations are hand-sewn and looks just like the authentic jerseys. I am a very happy camper. Best of all, it is cheaper than NHL.COM and potentially cheaper than buying at JLA. I had mine customized and shipped for $141. I believe a blank one is $114. Great place to buy jerseys!


RROD Question

20 March 2009 - 10:43 PM

Alright, so my console has been acting up. A whole lot. It's frustrating. It seems to crash very frequently for no reasons. Last time I was able to do some work to it and it quit crashing for a while, well, now it seems dead for sure. Got the three blinking red lights today. Console still turns on though and I have only gotten them once so far. According to MS, they repair these for up to 3 years under warranty, and then for free thereafter. Is this correct? I know some of you have gone throug this, perhaps you can answer some of my questions.

1) Can I send this in under warranty even if I have only gotten the RROD three light thing just once? How repeatable must it be. I think my warranty of 1 year is JUST past (maybe a month) but I am sure well within the three years.

2) Do I need to keep my HDD? If not, will they move my files? If not, should I get a memory unit to save some stuff. I got pretty darn far in Fallout 3 and there is no damn way I am starting over again.

3) I heard a while back they send back refurbished consoles that are just as old if not older than the ones that are failing with RROD, is that true? If they claim they'll repair these for this symptom forever, why would they keep sending you the ones they feel will fail again?

Any other ideas/help/insights you may have would be great.


Got the Orange Box for $1.98

27 January 2009 - 11:08 AM

My $25 gift card to tigerdirect.com was about to expire so I went with the Orange Box for the 360. $19.99 plus shipping ended up costing me $1.98. Portal alone is worth that price of admission. smile.gif

Let the RPG fun begin!

10 October 2008 - 08:37 AM

Alright, so we are about 2 weeks away from having some pretty sweet looking RPGs hit the XBOX. Anybody getting any of these? I will wait until school is over and get one for the winter break. Not sure yet which one I will get first but likely will see how the reviews go. I loved playing Fable but always had gripes with the fact of it being so short (even in the extended "Lost Chronicles" or whatever the name was). I hope Fable 2 is at least twice as long/big as the original. Fallout, historically, has always been a game that is very long and immersive, so I have no fear with that one. However, in the past I never finished any of the original Fallout games because it got...well, kinda boring after a while. This one looks pretty awesome though!

Discuss... smile.gif

EDIT: For our non-north American folks, these are NA release dates. I know the rest of the world might have different release dates, especially Fallout 3 is delayed in Europe I think for at least one more month.
