  1. Why is FEAR 3 shit? Wasn't it made by Monolith? Thought it got good reviews?
  2. Hey guys. Bear with me on this post... So I am loving my WD My Passport on XBone, thanks to all who recommended it in my last thread. i went a splurge the last day of the Summer Sale and bought 7 games, to include Wolfenstein New Order and Old Blood. Love W:NO so much that I bought Wolfenstein (2009) on X360, as there is some continuinity of story from RTCW through Wolf(2009) and W:NO. Buying Wolf(2009) got me thinking about any games I missed on X360, and after thinking long and hard, I thought of one game.... FEAR 3. loved the first 2 games but missed #3 for whatever reason. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not expecting FEAR 3 ( or Wolf 2009) for that matter to compare to modern day FPSs in 2017. But in terms of story and gameplay, is FEAR 3 a solid playthrough?
  3. Same for me. No need to go crazy with something like yellow or red, ha. In the process of moving my games from the internal HDD to the Passport. Also have a bunch of games qued up to download after buying from he Summer sale.
  4. Bought the 4TB My Passport. Haven't hooked it up yet.
  5. Didnt go with anything yet... I think I'm going to order the WD 4TB My Passport. I just hope hope it isn't inferior to the My Book when taking durability and reliability into account.
  6. Skillz... any reason why you went with the My Book for XBone and My Passport for PS4? for the My Book, do you have to turn that on/off? I'm guessing the My Passport turns on/off as you turn the console on/off. still not sure what the pros/cons are....
  7. Hey guys, not exactly sure what the pros/cons are when discussing the WD My Passport and My Book to be used as an external storage solution for the Xbox One S. It will not be used for anything else, just The Xbox One S. My Passport - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LQQH86A/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&ascsubtag=88bc6d4a-db26-4fa1-a11d-ab71778ab865&tag=igndeals14-20 My Book - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LQQHL4E/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&ascsubtag=f2547445-238f-4c2f-b221-a6650e5b7156&tag=igndeals14-20 I am looking at the 4TB USB 3.0 models for both and really don't see what the difference is. They were both listed in this IGN article as recommendations for external storage - The Best Xbox One External Hard Drive http://www.ign.com/articles/2017/06/02/the-best-xbox-one-external-hard-drive. The My Book obviously has to be connected to a separate power outlet. But other than that what am I missing here? They appear to cost the same amount, so why go with a My Passport over a My Book, or vice versa? Do you maybe get better reliability with the My Book? Any assistance would be much appreciated. Thanks!
  8. Think OG Xbox just died with disc in tray

    I just looked at the underside of this smaller board, which I assume the PSU is attached to? I do not have any issues like shown in that video. Not really sure how I can go about diagnosing the problem. Anyone have any good suggestions?
  9. Think OG Xbox just died with disc in tray

    Ok, well I cracked the Xbox open, and was finally able to retrieve the disc from the DVD drive. As I suspected, the pinhole for the manual eject hits a piece of metal on the disc drive, so they must have eliminated that feature on my model. A look at the motherboard doesn't appear to show anything out of the ordinary. I don't see any blown capacitors.... There's three that look a little suspect.... They are almost in the center of the board, between where the power button is on the front, and where the heat sink is in the rear. I'm trying to post pictures, but D1P is telling me they are too large? WTF? Could someone please cue me in as to what I should be looking for, and where is the actually PSU? Underneath where the HDD is, on the right hand side of the console, there are dried "globs" of white stuff at certain places. What is that stuff?
  10. Think OG Xbox just died with disc in tray

    Ughhhhhh, doesn't look like replacing the power supply will be easy at all. Damnit! I wish someone who knew how to fix this shit lived near me.
  11. Think OG Xbox just died with disc in tray

    True but my problem is I want my saves. And since hard drives are tied to the motherboards, I can't just pop my hard drive out and put it in a new system. I would have to modify the shit out of it, and I don't want to risk losing those saves.
  12. Think OG Xbox just died with disc in tray

    Today is the big day, will be taking it apart in a few hours when I get to my parents house. From what I've read, a leaky capacitor doesn't necessarily mean that's what caused my issue. It could still be the power supply. So once I recover the disc, is there any way I can test the PSU to see if it still functions? I figure if the PSU doesn't, work, I can try to find a new one online to order. As for the capacitor... If it's leaked and it caused the system to power off, am I to assume that it ruined the entire motherboard?
  13. Think OG Xbox just died with disc in tray

    That does not sound good. Should I be able to tell when I crack the case tonight/tomorrow to retrieve the disc if that capacitor failed? and if it did, can it still be replaced, or is the entire motherboard dead?
  14. Think OG Xbox just died with disc in tray

    What exactly do you mean when you say "check the fuse on the plug"? Do you mean the wall outlet? I tried multiple wall outlets, and all other devices work fine. Do you think it blew the power supply? I was thinking maybe when I got home this weekend, I would try using an old PS2 power cable, since I think they are universal. I wouldn't even know where any old retro shops are in my area... Just tried this. Dropped it twice from bout an inch, also tried tapping on the top of it. Nothing. whatever is blocking the ejection port, seems like it's permanent, inside the case. Very strange. Manufacture date on the console is 3/24/2004. I wonder if this particular disc drive model didn't have the ejection port included. I believe it's a panasonic drive (def not the Thompson or Samsung).
  15. Think OG Xbox just died with disc in tray

    I tried that too, but it feels like it's just going to shatter the tray. I bet the disc is still in the spindle in the drive, hence why it's like "locked" in there. I will disassemble this bitch on Saturday. I think I only need a regular flathead, Torx20 screwdriver, and a Torx10 screwdriver. If anyone can confirm those are the correct sizes needed for the tore screwdrivers, that would be much appreciated. I'm going to have to go out on Saturday to buy them. My Splinter Cell marathon was a terrible, terrible idea, lol. And I only finished the first game. I have terrible luck.
