So, being the massive Halo fan that I am, I couldn’t wait to play 343 studio’s take on the massively popular and innovative gaming series. The new Halo 4 was just released this week, but, being so busy with work and other things of a not so trivial nature, I didn’t have any time to really play the game until yesterday.
Sunday evening, after work, I loaded the second disk, prepped and ready for the spartan onslaught. But, before you can play multi-player, you must install the disk onto the hard drive.
The disk got 90% completed but then bombed out and left me with a error notice.
I tried various fixes like cleaning the xbox, deleting a few GB of space from my HDD, clearing the cache etc, but nothing was working!
It was when I decided to clean the disk that I seem a nasty scratch on the disk.
I could not believe this was happening to me, and instead of my usual approach to things that are broken (spending time trying to fix it) I just headed back to the store and they gave me a replacement.
Morale of the story? sometimes it’s better to just return it.
