    Default Just got an XBox 360

    Just gave in to the modern world and got myself a 360 and a few games that I randomly picked off the shelves of Game.

    Just wondered why there's an Atari logo on Ghostbusters?

    Should have built a gaming PC.

    Better investment IMO, no need for pay for online gaming, unless you're playing an MMO.

    That and Atari published the Ghostbusters game.

    I have a half decent PC but i like my gaming to be separate. Otherwise I'd never leave my desk :-)

    Actually loving the 360 so far although the first thing I played was Jet Set Willy off of live.

    Spend 200 something on a 7 year old console, play 80s games on it that you can play on PC for free! lmao!

    As a recommendation, download Fez and Super Meat Boy.

    Lost? Urgh... from what I've seen from videos on Youtube it's a very broken adventure game.... Just like how the TV show is broken too!

    Blur, personally I found Split/Second to be a better game in my opinion.

    I would try and recommend disc based games, but as they're on Steam, it's really hard to mention one without using the word "It's cheaper and better on Steam".

    Although... staring at my 360 collection, few games worth it on the 360, there's Lost Odyssey, a Great Japanese RPG by Mist Walker that reduces the typical Final Fantasy Drama-llama moments and provides a solid plot with descent gameplay. There's Beautiful Katamari, you can't beat Katamari, regardless of what system it's on, well maybe it's first game on the iPhone, lol. Then there's Bayonetta, a fantastic brawler featuring a sexy witch who doesn't just duel wield some beefy looking purple painted guns, but she has stilettos with guns for heals! Made by the guy who did the Devil May Cry series just as he lost his job from Capcom, there's going to be a sequel on the WiiU. And there's Earth Defence Force 2017, possibly the best worst looking game on the 360. It pretty much uses PS2 graphics, but the reason for this is that there's Thousands of enemies on the screen at once! It's absolutely mad!

    I would second the super meat boy game, it is brilliant. If you fancy wondering around a nice looking game with an easy pace give just cause 2 a try, i wouldnt pay more than 5 for a second hand copy but i like the game. My only question is why Xbox? i really don't understand why people buy the xbox, Microsoft realy do love to milk every cent out of you. I hear Xbox live also has duke nukem 3d

    Just fancied one really, it's actually quite cool playing in front of the big tv with 1080p and Dolby Digital etc..

    Really enjoying Ghostbusters, it gets pretty atmospheric once you start roaming around on your own searching for Ghosts, plus it's got the original cast doing the voices.

    Quite like the whole social side too, I'm 'theBritishIBM' if anyone wants to add me.
