Halo Reach – The Ending
9-8-10: Initial release.
Hey guys, so this past weekend a group of my friends had a chance to play Halo Reach. Wait, a second, the game comes out on September 14th?
Yes, that is correct, but yet our friends had it. How? Simple. They got a downloaded copy off of torrents and played it on the modded Xbox. I assure you, it is not BS. I was there and I saw them rushed the campaign on easy mode, which took them about 3.5 hours.
To make it even more funny, they skipped all the cut scenes trying to rush through the campaign. Don’t worry, I won’t put any spoilers here. If you are a halo fan, you will enjoy this game.
Now were my friends going to buy halo reach? Most likely not. They are cheap bastards, and they don’t even have an xbox live account!
Anyway, someone had the balls to upload the ending of the game online on youtube finally. I just watched it, and I can assure you it is indeed real because it is the same ending I experienced in person. Enjoy!
XBOX 360 – Direction In How To Fix RROD
4-8-10: Initial release.
The Xbox 360 is prone to RROD. Unfortunately, it is due to bad solder joints. Microsoft has paid a lot of warranty costs in the billions, but was it worth it? They rushed the system to market before any of the other next gen systems and now the Xbox 360 is a profitable system for them.
However, they will never ever be able to recooperate the money lost in warranty claims.
For the regular user (you), it will suck if you have RROD. I have an Xbox 360, but it never has RROD.
Trivia fact: Versatile cannot and WILL not help you diagnose your RROD and help you fix it. Versatile cannot guarantee the material in this article will help you fix your RROD.
Because of that, I cannot help you directly. What I can do is point you to websites or provide educational material that can help you. If you want to help me out, leave a comment and I’ll post it here.

[How To] FTP Into Modded Xbox That Has Evolution X Dashboard (Or UnleashX)
1-15-10: Initial release. Video is coming if you have a hard time reading. 🙂
1-16-10: Added my Youtube Video.
Foreword: This tutorial shows the user how to FTP into their Xbox using the crossover cable or router method. Although this tutorial has a video (coming) and screenshots for the Evolution X dashboard, the METHOD is still the same for the UnleashX dashboard. You just have to be smart enough to recognize the network settings when you see it. – Versatile
With a modded Xbox original (softmod or hardmod), you have the ability to FTP into your Xbox to transfer files. What this means is that you can transfer files from the PC to the Xbox (music, games, emulators, roms, movies), and also from the Xbox to the PC. You can also install custom dashboards, and other homebrew programs.
If you are new to Xbox modding, then please read my other guide here.
This guide will show you how to connect to the Xbox via two methods, the crossover cable method and the router method.
Aeon – Skin for XBMC
Do you have a modded Xbox? Do you run XBMC? Forget the PMIII skin, go to the Aeon skin! This skin is made for HDTV systems, so if you have a 720P or 1080i HDTV screen, you will see the beautifulness of this skin.
The coolest part is that you can assign different picture backdrops for each selection (Movies, TV Shows, Pictures, etc.) and its all random. A post about it isn’t going to do it justice. Check out the skin at www.aeonproject.com

Alternatives To TVLinks
Well, it has finally happened. The owner of TVLinks.co.uk was arrested and shut down.
It’s a sad day for streaming video fans everywhere as news has been reported that TVLinks has been shut down and the owner, a 26yo man from Chelteham in the UK, was arrested.
Though not hosting an actual content himself, and rather merely providing links to where particular titles can be found, he was nonetheless apparently charged for the “facilitation” of copyright infringement.” –ZeroPaid
So, we have got a few alternatives for you all.

Amazon.com Black Friday Madness.
(click for enlarged image)
As if Amazon.com couldn’t get any better, they’ve finally put down a wicked competition in the Black Friday madness this year.
They have a unique system where you, the consumer vote on what incredible deals you’ll get. There are 8 rounds, each of 3 items under a specific category. For example, the first round consists of the Nintendo Wii, Playstation 3 (40 GB model) and the new Xbox 360 Arcade system that is replacing the Core system. Each are sold at incredibly lower prices (over 50%!) but you’re only able to get that deal on the one you vote for, if you show up at a specified time and are offered that deal.
You can vote once in each round, careful though, you can’t change your vote. You have to be a registered user but it’s free and you only need your basic information until you buy the product. I would recommend setting up your account for one-click buying however as these deals are highly limited to about an average of 500-1,000 pieces of inventory per item.

Cretise – The New Aproach to Getting Referrals, FOR FREE!
Cretise is a new site that is just starting off but has enough members already to do its job. Its job is to give your referral links for any site to other people who are already looking for it but need a way to find it. Cretise is free and easy to use! I started only a couple of days ago and I have already gotten a referral from it!!!
There are a lot of sites offering free stuff like Game systems, $100+ gift cards, etc. but they require you to refer people to join as well. Here is something to help get some of those pesky referrals out of the way!
The way this works is by requiring you to earn credits, to be redeemed (50 minimum) for posting your referral link. The link then remains up until your redeemed credits goes to 0. How do you actually earn the credits, you ask? Well it is actually very simple and easy to do (took me 2 min to redeem 50+ credits)
“There are a couple ways to gain credits for free:
The first way is by clicking on links that other members are promoting. We have a category system so the links will be in categories that you have interest in. Once you visit a link you get a certain amount of credit for viewing it. There is currently no limit to the amount of links you can view in a day, but is limited to the number posted in categories that you are interested in.
Another way to gain credit is from your friends. If your friends are wondering how you are so successful in promoting your referral links, we will give you an incentive to tell them about us. We will give you 100 Credits for every friend that creates a Free account. You can find your link to give to your friends in our Refer a Friend section. Please make sure to use it or you will not get credit for them.” – Cretise FAQ
If you think either of those things will be hard, just try it and find out that IT IS NOT HARD!

Alright, this is apparently the next new game from Ensemble Studios.
It looks amazing, let me tell you.
Here is a video:
Halo Wars is a real-time action strategy game for the Xbox 360 that allows the player to control large armies and to shrewdly direct them in realistic warfare. Set early in the iconic war between the Covenant and UNSC – made famous by the Halo FPS games – Halo Wars provides a new angle on the war while bringing new heroes to the battle.
The images below are renders of the units or buildings in-game. Mouse-over each image to see the original concept art. In the weeks and months ahead we will be updating the features page with more information and imagery.
