LOL - you will be calling sick into work in 6 hours as you continue to stream movies off netflix and install every single one of your games to HD in order to test load times.

I think the first thing I did was remove all those trial games I played (with 0 gamer points) that were littering my record. I'll sleep much better tonight!

Like being able to remove the 0GP games from my record. Jesus christ, those bugged me! I don't like that it doesn't put you on the option to login when you boot though. You have to click around to get to it. The party thing seems like the sweetest option so far!

I'm glad I wasn't the only crazy one. I went to bed at 1:00 but didn't fall completely asleep. Saw a tweet from Major Nelson that they were beginning deployment so thought "Why not?"

I was dead for the rest of the day on 4 hrs sleep. hehe

It's definitely not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and I like that it maintained some element of the blade-like navigation.

I do, however, think the avatars and quite possibly the gayest thing ever and a bigger ripoff of the Wii than I expected.

Where do you go to delete the 0GP games from your profile?

I agree 100% on the avatars. wtf. i felt emasculated. lol. How is anyone supposed to take gaming srsly with these froo froo avatars! It would be like trying to tell someone with a straight face that you're a "Mac Gamer"! hehe

For the 0GP, you can't do it from the dashboard. I think you have to go into the blades to the "Achievements" option on the game blade. Then scroll through your games. There should be a delete button available only on the ones that have no gamer score. I removed all of mine, and I slept better than I have in years.

btw- finished Gears last night. The ending is disappointingly easy. General Raam makes this endboss about as easy to defeat as a nerf seamonkey with polio. D:

I think we should restart our coop game in INSANE mode! 150GP++! :-D

Yeah, I saw your achievement update on Facebook — congrats! I'm at the beginning of Act 5 so should be caught up with you pretty soon. ;-)

I am all about restarting our coop game on Insane! Not only do we still have 60GP of coop achievements to get, the 150GP for Insane will make it worth a whopping 210 when we're all done (along with any of those other weapon related ones along the way like Boomshield and Ticker melees). As an achievement whore, I vote yes. ;-)

Thanks for the advice on deleting the 0GP games — found it after realizing that I hadn't tried hitting the Xbox button yet and seeing what changed there. :-)
