Oh ya the x-box life setup is a nightmare, I had to redo it some weeks ago and I think they changed there whole thing, that and I have like 3 or 4
different profiles in the x-box live and on the computer Microsoft games for windows and I think the two are interchangeable, it confused me because I
was trying to get back into my old X-box life profile but I could not remember my password or the ID for any of them, it was a pain let me tell you.
However setting up a new account was pretty easy.
But it almost sounds like you son never played videogames before, if he gets flustered over Halo then I don't know what to say. You know I pissed
off a few British people on Halo3 and 2 plus a few other games, they called me wanker and a bunch of other things that I could not understand, and did
not know were insults. I told them to speak English and quit momo jombo unintelligent jabbering. Which off course pissed them off more, then I think
me and my team totally owned them, no joke they were dying left and right, like boom headshot. I had to stop a little because I was starting to feel
sorry for them, they were literally screaming and getting all flusters over nothing, I think before the whole match ended they rage quit dropped out
of the game. What can I say, sometimes I just cant help it, and they did have a funny accent.
But anyways, maybe Halo or the first person shooter thing is not for you kid, if hes the more bookish type he probably only really got the game
because all friends play it and it was a peer pressure type of thing, trust me once he is done with Halo which may not be for a while he probably will
move on to something else. I would probably recommend he try rpgs he sounds like the type that would enjoy those type of games more, and if he really
has the patience and wants a challenge he should try Dark Souls, definitely one of the best action RPG's out in a long while, people say that game is
But really most people do not have the patience for it. Its not like Halo which there used to and have there mentality set to, you cant just run in
there guns blazing and things happen, its more of a think beforehand and plan game, really all you need is a little patience to learn the enemies move
patterns and it becomes much easier. Its a whole different type of thing then Halo, and there are plenty of other games out there to, most you could
pick up for really cheap, most kids want the newer things but really there are a whole bunch of older games which you can get for really cheap now
that are as good if not better then the newer games. In fact got two older games which came out years ago and are really great games for 5$ each some
weeks ago, if he gets bored of Halo don't be afraid to hit the bargain bin at you local videogame store, some of those older games are way better
then some of the new games out there today.
