Red Dot of Doom [ COMIC ]
They’re thinking about calling the new Xbox 360 critical failure indicator the Red Dot of Death [source]. I say no. I get that the Red Ring of Death is a play off of the Blue Screen of Death. And that’s fine as the Red Ring of Death sounded cool. It made you feel as if your console was being surrounded by flames and sacrificed upon the alter of the god of system failures. But Red Dot of Death that sounds like some local news story about teens and laser pointers. Now Red Dot of Doom sounds awesome. Like some sort of ominous being of light that drains the very essence of your soul if you ever see it. Kinda like when they opened the Ark of the Covenant in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
That’s why I say on to you internet, unite behind the term Red Dot of Doom. Cast aside your former shackles of death and embrace the impending doom. If you see anyone referring to the failure as a Red Dot of Death correct them. Show them the error of their way and enlighten them to the correct terminology. And if that still fails, make an example of them on 4chan.
