Mass Effect is the only 360 game I've seen where it is constantly reading data off of the disc, even when there's nothing going on.

This is not a good thing for this system, as it constantly gives a "Disc Cannot Be Read" message every 20 minutes or so for no particular reason at all. There are the parts in the game where you have a mandatory 5 minute Mako run that you cannot avoid, end up dying a lot, having to redo it, so I finally get to the end and "DISC CANNOT BE READ."

And before I forget to mention, this is the only game that gives the message.

I don't think I've seen that error on my new 360 but I know I've seen it a nice few times on my old one, along with some red lights (someone tell me if they've heard of that error before LOL). I also believe it is because the disc is constantly streaming data it causes the Xbox to stop reading it. Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed, and Skate. are a few games I've seen it occur in.

My 360 is legit ATM. I never even thought about the possibility that his was modded.

    Yeah back in my late teens I used to mow about 10 lawns every two weeks for $35 a yard. It was stupid big yards I knew where paying a lot more than that to lawn care companies in a some what up tier gated community a few blocks from the area I lived. Was great getting $700 a month with no bills at the time and good excercise too, now I have bills so I never have any money to buy things.

    @BigOnYa My most-hated game on the NES was gilligan's island. Couldn't figure out the controls. Played it on actual hardware. Super frustrating, and boring as shit.
