XBOX 360 General Discussion/Gamertags

Post  Donth8 on Mon Apr 05, 2010 10:37 pm

The Wii and the PS3 have one and the 360 feels left out. Sad

Here you can discuss pretty much anything about the Xbox 360.
Do you like the console? Do you dislike the console? Why or why not?
Planning on getting one in the future? Need reassurance?
Games you own?
Upcoming games you're excited about? Victim of the RROD? Tell us about it.

You can also post your Gamertag here and I'll update the first post.

I've had a 360 for nearly 4 years now after winning it during the Football World Cup 2006. I like the console personally, each of the 3 major current gen consoles (And I Own All Of Them) have certain features that I like about them but it's my least favourite of the 3. Just doesn't interest me as much as the other consoles do lately, the Wii and PS3 stuff is more appealing to me. Not to say that I've lost all interest in the console though, but lately I find myself mostly interested in the XBLA. Neutral

So far, I've had my 360 break down once and had two close calls. The first one was just a broken Scart and the second one was when my Brother dropped it as he slipped on the very bottom of the stairs (They were both fine fortunately).

Here's my Backloggery listings for my XBLA Collection and my 360 Disc Games Collection. I don't have a Gold Live Membership right now so I can't do any online matches. I hope to rectify this soon

I don't like renewing my Xbox Live membership because I have to pay for it but you get what you payed for.

The Xbox Live Arcade is definitely worth checking out especially to those old school Rare fans out there.
XBLA have both Banjo Kazooie and Tooie. Perfect Dark recently hit the service about a couple week ago. Sadly, we'll never see these on the VC. Also these aren't just some N64 ports. The games can be played on HD! (No durr, capt. obvious) and the controls have been updated to work better with the 360's controller.

I'll also give this thread a heads up on 'Free Gold Weekends' (You can play online even if you have a Silver membership)
Note: They only do this when they're feeling generous or whenever they feel like it. Razz

Xbox 360 = my favorite console of its time so far.

I love xbox live too.

(GT- Tony Dawg)

Just look at my backlog for the games I've played. I still haven't beaten Tales of Vesperia... Curse you new games!
I remember when I first got my 360. (Before that one broke.....) (lol) I only played Halo 2 on it until I got Call of Duty 2. Even then I was like. Ew no more Halo 2 please. xD

Anyway, I think its all worth it.

Oh and for Final Fanasy XIII, you have no clue how happy I was to learn it was going to be multi-platform Razz

Games for Windows LIVE works too. You can sign in on someone else's 360 and make an avatar etc. The best part is that you can play online for free. The recently released games also have achievements like BioShock 2 and DiRT 2.

@Tony Halo 2 is really fun online. It had a better match making than the other games. Also is FFXIII worth getting on the 360? I'll probably wait for the price to go down.

I should mention that I also use Games For Windows, albeit much less frequently than my 360. Thing is though, I have Steam as well and that's what I generally stick with.

And I tried the Game Room earlier. A bit confusing at first but once you get around it, not too bad. There's no games that I want in there right now sadly.

Game Room is an interesting concept. Too bad you have to pay for the games. Neutral

By the way, is there anyone who plays Lost Planet: Colonies online?

@Donth8
Yeah FF XIII is really good so far! I'd recommend it for 360 for the purpose of achievements. (I tend to horde them xD)

The graphics look nice too, so if you're a fan of the series, you'd like XIII. (Except for Hope... I hate him)

This makes me curious, why do you hate Hope? Seems like a lot of people do, but I from what I watched, he isn't that annoying. Tidus was much worse in my opinion, since
Spoiler:
Hope actually has a reason to be angry and confused. He just lost his mother and he's like 12. Tidus, on the other hand, lost his mother a while ago and is blaming his dad for no apparent reason and he's 15-16.
Just my opinion of course. =)

No problem Tony. It looks good indeed. I can't wait. It's a year from now.
The trailer is also on Xbox Live.

My friend thought that guy that was running in the begginning was Marcus' dad.
He's wrong.
It's my man Dom. Wink
Also, I'll be using the chick for multiplayer Razz

Whoa wait. They're introducing a female gear? Wonder what she'll look like.

Dom is kinda annoying in 2. All he does is cry about his wife. :/

Oh and Admin, 1,000 post. WHERE IS MY MOD POSITION. >=D
j/k. This is a huge accomplishment for our group. :3

Well you still got comment no. 1000 elsewhere, I think in Random. Wherever you and Vapor were discussing being Androids 21 and 22.

As for 360, a friend and me just started playing Army of Two again. it's ok. Wink

So I've been playing some Sega Rally lately, as well as Pac-Man: Championship Edition on that 2nd Arcade Compilation Disc.

So far, I like both games quite a bit, Sega Rally's controls are a bit too loose for me and slightly hard to control (So much Oversteer) but once you get the hang of it, it's a good game. As for Pac-Man, firstly, I thought the compilation disc would be more like the XBLA Unplugged compilation, so It surprised me to see the original 360 Menu designs when I loaded it up. As for the game itself, I have to say I'm impressed. Certainly feels like a fresh change to the old game.

I know I'm 3 years late to the scene (On Both games) but who cares... Razz

I upgraded back to Gold recently, seeing that Microsoft had a 3 Month Gold Membership 50% off Deal.

Since I have two Arcade x360s, I'm going to upgrade to that new Xbox 360 slim with gamestop Very Happy

They're giving you trade in bonuses for systems, controllers, memory, and the like.

My reasoning is that the new 360 from a technical standpoint can't get the red ring, and my two arcade consoles don't have their warranty anymore and may be on their last legs.

Might as well upgrade while the deal is good Smile
