FIGHT NIGHT ROUND 3 on xbox360
post #123 of 1057
I actually fired up my old XBOX today and threw in "Flatout" ....waited online for someone to race with, No one showed.

Out came "PGR2", plenty of good folks to race with this game. Still my favorite racing game of all time.

Tomorrow I might throw in "RallySport Challenge 2"

But what I have been playing everyday is "Call of Duty 2" Deathmatch..the most addicting game I have ever played.

Halo 2, Geometry Wars, and Zuma. Not much else has piqued my interest.

NFSMW which I am really addicted and few demos here and there.

Of the X360 lineup, I've now finished CoD2, PD0, Kameo, King Kong, and Condemned, and I've been playing Tiger Woods 2006 with a friend on Live. I've enjoyed all of these games, but I'd have to put CoD2 and King Kong at the top of the list with Condemned right below those two. Of course, all of these games were short, so I've actually just started to rent them. Going to decide if I'd be better off with something like Gamefly soon.

As for X-Box titles on the X360, my wife and I are playing Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance II. I've also picked up Outlaw Golf 2 to play on Live with a friend, and last night I picked up Darkwatch. All of these games run fine in backward compat mode, though BG : DA II does slow down intermittently. Otherwise I've seen no issues. I do wish that they ran in 1080i with widescreen, but I just turn the screen settings down to 480p and use the scaler on my TV to fill the screen...works fine...just not true 16:9 aspect ratio.

Of the games coming up, I'm most looking forward to Oblivion and Far Cry Instincts: Predator. I just finished Morrowind on the PC to prepare for Oblivion, and good lord was it good! Add that depth to an X360 quality visual engine, and I'm going to be lost for months. I also played Far Cry on the PC, but between the enhanced visuals, different plotline with Jack mutating, and Live multiplayer, I'm looking forward to giving it another go.

I gotta say...I really love the X360! I'm looking forward to a much larger library of games, but that'll come, and I've enjoyed all of the launch titles I've played so far...

Playing Amped 3, waiting for Burnout: Revenge and Dead Rising
post #128 of 1057
Playing all of the following equally (about 1-2 hours each and then hop over to the next):

1. Ghost Recon: AW (awesome single player BTW) *add* (FYI to all 360 developers, THIS is how to dispense Gamerpoints, please buy this game and learn how to effectively use Gamerpoints)
2. Fight Night Round 3 (seems very easy at default difficulty, I'll pass it first, then crank up the diff.)
3. Project Gotham Racing 3 (just finished all silver trophies and started going for the gold! BTW what cars make up the Exotic Cars Achievement, I have the 4 listed, but can't figure out the others)
4. Hexic HD (I'm pretty sure I'm kicking a$$, with multiple Black Orbs ('bout 3-4 per game) but I just keep on going)
*add*
5. Call Of Duty 2 (completely forgot I grabbed this one. Good game, but it's just too damn easy to pass each stage on Veteran mode (which, BTW, is where the Gamer Points are at). I mean you die a lot but you just restart and learn not to do what you just did, eventually you'll pass the stage) (also this is a great example to all 360 developers on how NOT to dispense Gamerpoints)


Also anticipating Oblivion, but still not sure if I want to opt for the more expensive Prem pack
post #129 of 1057
Ive had my 360 for 3 weeks and have finished a game a week.
COD2, Kameo, Gun. (Guess I could go back for all the extras and stuff).

But I have the following waiting to play... which one should I play first.
PDZ, Condemed, NFSMW, Madden (actually played a game, not impressed enough to play a season...until I get the fever so I guess this one is out). I almost bought GRAW today, but decided I was going to hold off until I bought an HDTV since eveyone says the graphics are so awesome. I also want Burnout and Oblivion for sure. Outfit and battlefield depending on the reviews.....

So PDZ? Condemed?

Condemned is an excellent game with incredible atmosphere. Seeing how fast you blow through games though, you'll probably finish this one pretty quickly.

I took my time with Condemed working on the optional objectives and playing melee only. It brought the game to 17 hours, not at all bad considering I missed quite a bit! I am sure using guns would speed the game along quite a bit.
post #132 of 1057
About Condemned....

The demo of said game in this months OXM (with Scarface on the cover) has a loading screen that mentions you can get an Gamerpoint(s) by completing the demo with only melee weapons. I know this is an achievement in the full retail version, but are they now putting game achievements in demos?
post #133 of 1057
Playing GRAW and Burnout revenge currently, they are great games. Might give OUTFIT an try next week. These next couple of months are gonna be great for the 360.
post #134 of 1057
I am playing NFSMW...I am 80 percent through the challenges and down to the last 2 racers in the career mode. The game is great fun.

"too damn easy" == "you die a lot" ?

I like the gamerpoints in COD2, finishing the levels had a sense of accomplishment... I'm not quite sure how you want them to not let you restart.

As for GRAW, I love the game, but the gamerpoints? Some are insane... I will never get the #1 ranking in anything, they shouldn't be exlusive like that, they should be attainable. I like the other MP and single player ones (minus play 8 straight hours).


Btw, I'm playing only GRAW right now, but will probably be popping NFSMW in for online races from time to time.
post #136 of 1057
GRAW, Burnout Revenge- both fun. Finished pd0 and condemned- highly recc. condemned. Playing Kameo on/off.

Finally- very much waiting for Oblivion. I have never played a TES/Rpg, but this title looks superb as far as things to do, work size, gameplay. I really hope the melee combat compares to Condemned.

I just signed up for the game renting service and put Condemed in so I should be playing that soon.

PDZ has 13 levels. I have beat it before. It can get quite difficult.
post #138 of 1057
Was trying to play PD0 but then Oblivion came out, so I guess I will try PD0 again next year.
post #139 of 1057
Oblivion. I picked up GRAW the same day but haven't tried it yet.
post #140 of 1057
Nothing.. I'm bored already... Waiting for BF2:MC, if it's anything like the Xbox version I'll be a happy camper...
post #141 of 1057
Playing Oblivion right now and loving it. My 2 rented games that I occasionally play are NFS:MW and COD2. I have almost finished COD2 and I hope Gottaplay has enough copies of GRAW so I can snag one.
post #142 of 1057
A whole lot of Zuma.

post #144 of 1057
Burnout and Graw for 360.
post #145 of 1057
GRAW and ES:IV
post #146 of 1057
I'm Playing Oblivion, and I just finished the Main Quest. Just wait till the end... quite a finale, and you are justly rewarded for your duty! I'm also Playing Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter. Talk about sweet graphics! although that Squadmate A.I. is awful. but don't shy away from it because of that, still is a sweet game.
post #147 of 1057
OBLIVION!!!

Nuff said, if you've seen it you know what I mean. If you haven't seen it, shame on you (hehe)!
post #148 of 1057
When I can get the wife out of Zuma, I'm playing the Battlefield 2 Demo.
I never had this on the PC or Xbox so I had no expectations. Unbelievably
addicting! Is there such a thing as Video Gamers Anonymous?

I had this on the PC and the 360 is even more addicting due to the graphics and immersion factor of the home theatre. Will definitely be picking this one up this week. See you online (I'm chaz12345).

How does Zuma compare to Bejeweled 2? My wife's a big fan of the later.......
