Really? I haven't been online since like October and I get a free Arcade game? Where are the details, I may have to hold on to that until Omega Five comes out!

Yea any timeframe on that?

There are a couple that have caught my eye.




Ah, I would consider Sonic the Hedgehog 2. I only have 4 versions of it and a 5th would make sense. Actually, the achievements would be fun. I beat the first one without dying to get that achievement. Yes....that's was quite a challenge.

I still think it's tougher to beat the game in under 40 minutes though. There's also Pac-man and Castlevania. I wonder if they would let us choose our own...

I DO!!! Well once or twice I have. I do love it so....

It is great fun, I am totally addicted to COD4 online. have a good mate who also has it and we chat and play almost every night. It is, IMHO, the best multiplayer FPS out there at the moment.

Burnout is very tempting, I do love the older games but wasn't sold on the demo. It's good but feels a bit clumsy. Mini review anybody?? I do plan to get Battlefield when it comes out next month. Looks great.

that is because all i ever see you guys playing is GOW or COD:4, and i own neither. i DO own Burnout Paradise, though. just bought it so i am still getting to know the map, and only have 7 cars in my garage, but very sweet so far.

Next time you are around I'll invite you to freeburn with me. Basically we can play in the same world and do the game as usual, but share the map! :D

@Monkey-The Burnout demo is a bit misleading. It left me cold too. But as a full game it's quite different. As an open world car game, it's the best I've played. The only negatives for me have been threading traffic because the lanes are so small. And navigation. Still, it's worth a purchase since theres a million things you can do and the online component is very convenient and solid.

yeah, trying to race at top speed through traffic while checking the map to see if i am taking a good route is a dicey proposition to say the least. the compass is ok but won't let you know where the next exit ramp or intersection is coming up and a big part of success in the races is taking the best route through the city.

I'd like to second that COD4 is the shit. I wish I had more time to play it. The online ranking and skills system is awesome. Seems very well balanced.

So, what will be the next game we're all interested in getting?? I was playing the new Frontline demo the other day and it looks pretty damn good, but I think that it's a poor mans Battlefield (with is also out really soon :D:D). Any thoughts??

"Star Wars:The Force Unleashed" anyone????

there is also, "Highlander" where the only way to die, or to kill, is beheading, and just like in the movie when you defeat and behead an enemy you gain their power. the multiplayer is going to be fucking awsome. then there is "Vikings", which looks like it could be some good bloody fun too.

I'm not worried about getting any games for a while. I've got Mass Effect now, my fiancee even plays it. We spent all day -- literally, all freakin day, 7:30am til 10:30pm -- playing. She'd play a couple hours, I'd play a couple hours. Such an amazing game. Will last me a good long while.

i wish there were zoners who played Halo3. while i certainly have issues with the online gameplay, it is still a pretty fun game and it would be a real gas to have a Zoner social slayer team, kicking ass, taking names, and talking teh smack...


and i don't own COD4 or GoW yet. :oops: :P

i have rented it and it is a sweet game, though i was getting my ass kicked :lol: problem was that i am so used to the Halo3 controls that i kept hitting the "throw grenade" button when i was trying to reload, inevitably while standing behind cover which meant the grenade would hit the wall in front of me, land at my feet and blow my ass to smithereens. :oops:

if i was to play right now you wouldn't want me on your squad, you'd want me on the opposing team :lol:

Halo3 on the other hand.........

I've only played Halo3 a couple of times and I did enjoy it, but wasn't sold on the multiplayer. It just felt a little simple. The entire class system alone has me hooked on COD4, although it was a rainbow 6/RPG idea it works brilliantly.

COD4 is on my list of games to get, but right now we own Halo3, Burnout Paradise, Dead Rising, Assassin's Creed, Conan, Guitar Hero 3, all bought since we got the 360 for Christmas and i haven't come close to playing through most of them. hard to see forking over $50 for yet another game to try to work into the rotation right now

:o Dude, you haven't been playing enough video games if you have four kids....


:wink:









Edit:

Aside from all that, I;ve stolen this from a pm I just sent...

Frontlines looks cool, I like the weapons and the look of the thing. Battlefield looks fucking amazing with that frostbyte engine behind it (there's a cool docco you can download from xbox love about it).


Anyone seen any of these videos?
