    I have not been able to get near the bloody 360 for the last week due to Wifey never being off DOA4:mad:

    My Live nights are suffering due to her. I thought I had got her away from it when she finally stopped playing Hexic but it looks like that she has now become addicted again:rolleyes:

    The solution is as follows;

    1; Press the guide button
    2; select ' personal settings '
    3; select ' vibration '
    4; untick the ' enable vibration ' box.

    Women will all disperse and you should get control of your console again.

    Personally, I don't see why your complaining, I've been hoping and praying that my future wife is into gaming! You should be thanking your lucky stars, that you have found a wife that is into gaming!!! (Y)
    Worst comes to worst, just hide the controller :lol:

    Yes mate have noticed that she has been working her way through story and time attack, when she'S done i'll catch her on live, but you know what you have no one else to blame YOU BOUGHT HER DOA .:smashin:
    Yes we women moan about the initial buy Of the console then, we steal it from you.. that is what we are like.. but dont expect us to say " sorry , i was wrong about that xbox"..:nono:

    Solution in my house my hubby has one xbox 360 downstairs with the monster tv.. and i am happy having my xbox 360 upstairs on my medium tv.
    Depends how desperate you are to gain back control.. BUY HER ...HER OWN.:devil:

    She is getting really wound up over the time attack mode now. She is doing it on the two rounds setting to get the extra costumes and open Tengu but she is convinced it is harder since the update. She did all this when we borrowed the game a while ago but the save game was lost due to the bug so it is killing her to do it all again:rolleyes:

    And yes, you are right, I did buy her the game so I only have myself to blame:suicide:

    Easiest way around this is to change the settings to one round and finish time attack with who you have left to do it with ... you will still get tengu, however you do not get the costumes. You can buy the costumes online in zacks shop with the points you win on online matches. The last costumes that are not available in zacks shop will have to complete with back on 2 round time attack. (hope this helps you..);) :smashin:

    She completed Time Attack on one round the first time just to open Pingu but now she is determined to do it on two rounds to get Tengu again and to open up the fourth costume for the characters:rolleyes:

    I think she is about half way through them.....so I have about another week of her screaming at the TV to put up with :rotfl:

    What I want to know is what is your missus doing out of the kitchen? If you adjust the chain to a lenght where it fails a good few meters short of the 360 you will not have all these problems.

    I hope the above helps. ;) :D

    Hang on, will just repeat that to her and see if she is happy to go with the chain idea.........





    ....right, not sure I can actually type her response on here as small children may read this (don't want to upset Redman by using rude words!).

    I would start running mate...she is a scary, scary women when she gets angry:eek:

    Well you could use game tactics to try and reclaim the hill... I mean 360.

    If you take the Oblivion route then get the adoring fan to follow you so all the monsters chase it (no parallel drawn to monsters) or the CoD route and throw a smoke grenade....

    Get a cheap PS1 if you dont have one lying about and get Bust a Move.... instant decoy.

    Still gillette 73 seems to have the safest response so far (hee) and it would help to consider it an onsite standby server ;)

    There is a PS2 in our bedroom that she can use...I even want to get a nice 32" LCD for it (and the Sky digibox and Tosh 5.1/DVD system she has up there as well) but noooooo, she wants to play on the 360:rolleyes:

    I think the PS2 may make way for another 360 when I do get an LCD for in there ..seems to be the only answer.

    To be fair, if you guys move the 360 out of the kitchen you should be able to regain control. I hope this helps.

    None of my exs have ever played games despite my insistance at playing with my controller. I think if you cant beat them, join them...

    Then at least you have the comfort of knowing you married a lady with good taste, got to be worth a 360 for that!
