Father Geek’s Xbox 360 – Elgin, MN

It is with great sorrow that we inform the public that Father Geek’s Xbox 360 passed away in the early morning hours of March 13th, 2011. The exact cause is unknown, but friends and family will take comfort in the knowledge that Xbox 360 worked very well for over 5 years and was well loved, used, and overly played. While others of its kind “Red Ringed” within a year or even months of their initial purchase, Father Geek’s Xbox 360 was a solid performer and the source of much envy amongst friends.

Xbox 360 is survived by the Nintendo Wii, the Playstation 2, and the Nintendo DS. Also left behind are countless games half-ass played and unfinished. Truly, the loss of Xbox 360 will be felt most when bordom is at its height and there is nothing good on TV.

A memorial fund has been created in memory of all the good times and countless hours of enjoyment Xbox 360 has provided. Please send any donations you wish to provide to “Let’s Buy Father Geek Another Xbox 360 Because He is Cheap and a Heck of a Guy” Memorial.

Loved. Played. Enjoyed.

Goodnight Sweet Prince….

About Cyrus

Editor in Chief, Owner/Operator, Board Game Fanatic, Father of Three, and Nice Guy, Cyrus has always enjoyed board, card, miniature, role playing, and video games, but didn't get back into the hobby seriously until early 2000. Once he did, however, he was hooked. He now plays board games with anyone and everyone he can, but enjoys playing with his children the most. Video games continue to be of real interest, but not as much as dice and little miniatures. As he carefully navigates the ins and outs of parenting, he does his very best to bestow what wisdom he has and help nurture his children's young minds. It is his hope and ambition to raise three strong, honorable men who will one day go on to do great things and buy their Mom and Dad a lobster dinner. Cyrus goes by the handle fathergeek on Board Game Geek. You can also check him out on CyrusKirby.com. Yes, he has a URL that is his name. His ego knows no bounds, apparently....

  1. Rest in Peace, XBOX! You’ll have our first one as company…

    And thus, the Xbox unlocked its final achievement. My condolences on your loss, Cyrus.

  3. I too offer my condolences. I remember the time when I lost not one but two XBoxes in a row due to the RRoD. Those were some boring weeks waiting for the Customer No Service to give me back my brick. Good luck replacing it.

      My thanks, David.

      The shelf the Xbox sat in is now empty, but the memories remain…as does the dust.

    A new Xbox is now on the shelf! It will never replace my first Xbox (emotionally speaking, because, obviously, it physically did), but it is a welcome addition to the family, all the same!

    Seriously downgraded it from 250 Gigs to only 4, but I now have HDMI, which is pretty to look at. Why the down grade? Money, baby! You can save some serious cash if you don’t care about all the bells and whistles.

    Which, consequently, I keep telling myself I don’t. I repeat it like a mantra and will continue to do so until I believe it. Going on 10 days straight now….no end in sight….
