*IF* I do it this weekend...


Recommended Posts

That is, finally pick up a Box like the loser that I am. The conditions, of course, are whether or not I have the time and extra cash, both of which I think will have this weekend. It could all go awry, though, as the girlfriend will be out of town and I could be lying on the corner of Delancy and Norfolk in a drunken stupor.


Hemmingway, I will of course pick up a Live kit with it - they're $50, right?


But what games? I mean, I'm not a huge fan of Halo. I've played it a ton at friends' places and I think I'll just wait for Halo 2. KOTOR looks great. Any cheapies I shouldn't miss?


I want Live games, though, because that's the main reason I'll be picking it up. Which ones are still good - which ones are you losers still playing?


Any other tips, must-haves, etc.? What's the better AV kit for 5.1? I don't have HD, so I don't really care about that, but component might be nice.

As far as Live enabled games:


Midtown Madness 3 - Mediocre single player, but FANTASTIC multiplayer on Live.


Tetris World - Which you'll no doubt get with your Live kit.


Return to Castle Wolfenstein - I haven't touched the single player, although I hear it's good. I play purely mulitiplyer with it on Live currently.


MotoGP 2 - My favorite racing game. The customizability of the bikes is awesome. It's like the Gran Turismo of crotch rocket games IMO.


A few others Live titles I like would be:


Ghost Recon


Any of the 2K3 Sega Sports games, although you cold hold off until the ESPN line-up comes out.


Unreal Championship


Mech Assault - The new downloadable stuff for it is GREAT.



As far as non Live enabled games:


KOTOR - The reviews from us alone should warrant a purchase.


Buffy - It's cheap, but one of the most fun games I've ever played.

Spinlter Cell - Duh.


Halo - I know you said you'll wait for Halo 2, but it's worth it to beat it, and then have it around for some awesome multiplayer.


NBA Street Volume 2 - Great fun with friends.


Panzer Dragoon Orta - Ask Romier about this one. :D


Kung FU Chaos - Got panned by reviews, but when I have friends over, we play it non stop. It's damn fun beating on friends.

  • Ghost Recon (my favorite XBox live title - online games changed forever when this came out - voice chatting with team members in situations like this is indispensible)

Halo (sorry, folks, I call the shots as I see them - regardless of Halo 2, this game is worth owning for the story alone)

MechAssault (as long as your opponents are losers like us, it's fun - the majority of the people who play this online eat, sleep, and breathe this game ? and will therefore eat you alive and shit the bones the minute you sign on)

Panzer Dragoon Orta - if you're not impressed by this game, something is wrong with you

Return to castle Wolfenstein - no-brainer

Splinter Cell - another no-brainer

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 - you have no idea how fun this game is


Honorable Mention Must-owns:

  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer (cheap too)

Colin McRae Rally 3 (only for the hardcore, strictly for the headstrong)

Dead or Alive 3 (no offense, but screw Kung Fu Chaos - at least in this game you can see your character - plus it still looks incredible)

Midtown Madness 3 - fun as hell

Moto GP 2 - the Gran Turismo of crotch rockets, I agree 100%

NBA 2K3, NFL 2K3, and NHL 2K3 - all together now, 1, 2, 3... "FUCK EA"

Rallisport Challenge - another fun party game, believe it or not

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic - best thing to happen to the Star Wars franchise since Return of the Jedi


P.S. Your avatar fucking rocks. :D
