In just a few short weeks, the new school year will begin. The summer trolls will be heading back, so they'll be too busy to spam the forums with their mental diarrhea. We'll be free for another nine months!
Let's share some stories of surprises you saw happening on live TV. These aren't breaking news stories. These are things that disrupt an already-airing broadcast on-site.

One evening, when I was a child, my mother was watching the evening news. Suddenly, the newscasters were informed that a tornado warning had been issued for the area in which the studio was located. Instead of stopping the broadcast, the anchors and crew used it as an opportunity to educate the public by demonstrating what to do in such a situation. As they made their way to the basement, they kept filming, and explained each action they took and the reasons behind those actions, as well as explaining alternatives if such actions are not possible. In the end, everyone was okay, as the tornado ended up missing the city.
Well, my XBox 360 just lost its ability to read disks and I have no way of fixing it. There's no Gamestop anywhere near here because it's the middle of nowhere and nobody cares about us. There was a local business that, among other things, used to fix games, but they stopped offering that service because they weren't making enough money from it. Thus, I will likely never play my collection of XBox 360 games again. That's disappointing.

However, on the bright side, I recently finished setting up my XBox One and have been playing the Master Chief Collection. I just finished the Halo 2 level "Gravemind". Enhanced graphics did nothing to help my enjoyment of the level; it still sucks. It took me nearly an hour to get through, even on Normal difficulty, because I kept getting lost. Everything looks the same and I kept getting turned around and accidentally backtracking. Halo 2's biggest weakness is the lack of nav points. Everything else about the game is fun, but their absence is particularly painful on this level.

Edit: I tried Halo 3, and the MCC version of the game is pretty much unplayable, as the controls are too different from the others. The big problem is that the controls are backwards. When not dual-wielding, I have to use the left side of the controller to shoot, not the right, which is for grenades. I'm right-handed, so I am incapable of adjusting.
