I recently wrote about a problem with Madden 25 not saving games when playing in offline career mode. It didn’t happen every time, but it happened often enough to be a huge annoyance — but not consistently enough for me to diagnose.
We got an Xbox One for Christmas and I’ve been playing a fair amount of Madden 25 with our boys. One of our favorite things to do is to set up franchises in offline career mode and create our own teams via the fantasy draft.
Shortly after it was released, we bought Call of Duty: Black Ops for our Xbox 360. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to find matches on Xbox Live. As it turns out, the problem was that our NAT was set to STRICT.
This is mostly just a note to myself for future reference… We’ve been having trouble finding Xbox Live matches in Call of Duty: Black Ops. As it turns out, our NAT was set to strict, and we ended up getting stuck on “Finding Match Quality.”
Shortly after it was released, we picked up a copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops for our Xbox 360. The game itself is a blast, but being able to play on Xbox Live was one of the biggest attractions, and we couldn’t get it to work.
Last night while doing a bit of Christmas shopping, I discovered that Amazon had the Xbox Kinect in stock. For those that are unaware this is a fairly hard to come by item that’s been getting rave reviews since its November release.
I’m a big fan of internet TV, and have recently been looking for an easy way to get Hulu on our TV. Last night I ran across PlayOn.TV, which promises to do just that (and more) via your Wii, PS3, or Xbox 360.
This past Saturday, our Xbox 360 started flaking out while we were playing FIFA ’09. The video got fuzzy, and we started getting lines across the screen. When we re-started the Xbox, the problems went away, but came back. Not long thereafter, the kids reported to me that the Xbox was broken.
