GreenMonkey Posted January 27, 2005 Report Share Posted January 27, 2005 I finally have joined the Xbox crowd. Microsoft is now getting some of my money. You know how frickin' hard it is to get an Xbox these days?? Target, Meijer, Media Play, Best Buy, Gamestop - no Xboxes. Everyone was like "I haven't seen one since before Christmas" At Circuit City today the guy said that 2 were coming in on the truck and as soon as they were released he would sell one to me. In the few minutes between release and him trying to ring me up, they sold online for instore pickup. Dammit. So I bought a used Xbox from a local game shop. It has a new Thompson II DVD-ROM in it...for $118. It came with a 3rd-party controller (yucky) but I'm sure I will end up going for a wireless controller anyway. After spending $40 on an Xbox live starter kit, $20 on the Advanced A/V pack (a must for the projector...even if it is only 480p), and $38 for Halo 2 @ CC...this is quite an investment. Hopefully I enjoy it. Hopefully I can adjust to FPS on dual analog as I am a mouse/keyboard FPS gamer by training. Questions: Any cheap but quality Xbox games? There were a few Xbox games I wanted to play - Knights of the Old Republic is on my list to buy, as is Panzer Dragoon Orta. My wife wants to play Fable really bad, so I have to get that if I can find a deal on it. Maybe cheap online games? Oh yeah, and I need an online fighting game of some sort. That's half the reason for me buying the Xbox. Arcades are extinct around here. Damn Namco, Tekken 5 has no online play. Is there a wireless controller/wireless headset combo that isn't ungodly expensive? I saw the Logitech wireless headset but GEEZ, $70?? I gave up my lift-top coffee table for the xbox, dammit, so I had better enjoy it. It joins my PS2, GC, SNES, NES, DC, Saturn, Genesis. More games I don't have time to play.
