    It's so necessary that it's actually quintessential to life in general. In fact, before this guide I hadn't been able to play 360 for almost a decade. Upon finding this guide on how to insert double A batteries I was lost at sea. In fact, I was on the verge of losing my entire sense of being. A ghost in a shell, unaware of my consciousness and desperately pleading for some one, something, some god, to help me make it back to shore... first, there were two sets of footprints in the desert sand... after this guide, there was only one....magic? Or god? Or battery insertion guides? You decide.
