Post buyers remorse?
I just bought an Xbox 360 and Forza 2 yesterday.


Can't wait until Madden comes out Aug 14...

How's Forza 2?

I was addicted to the original and the sequal is almost enough for me to drop the money for a 360. NCAA Football might push me over the edge though its a great game on the regular xbox and I really don't need a new system just for the better graphics on the football game.

I haven't cared much for Madden for a number of years now. Its the same game every year with a few extra bells and whistles and the same old problems. I will have to rent the next-gen version and borrow my brother's PS3 and see how it is though. I heard last year's 360 version was even worse than the xbox/PS2 version though (never played it.)

Dude i got an xbox 360 and i love it! You got Xbox live man? If you got any money get a wireless modem and a 12 month xbox live membership. You got wireless internet right? Then if you got money get Gears of War or Madden 07. Those games are fun to play onlilne. I got xbox live, it's fun.

Forza is ok.

I'm a little bored with it to be honest. There are some new tracks, but nothing I really care about. Some new cars. But again, nothing too special.

There are a TON of other kick #### games coming out only for 360 that should inspire you to get the "next gen" console. Plus microsoft upped it's warranty to 3 years instead of 1.

Jackal... I know... i'm a beotch.

Hardcore.
no, i dont have live yet. I dropped all my spare cash on the console and the game. Hopefully next week I'll be able to get the wireless receiver and a few months of Live. I already have the wireless router with our cable internet. I wont be buying Madden 07. But like I said. 08 is coming in a couple weeks. So I'm going to nerd out for a week or so. Mebby take a couple days off work! ;)

hardcore. What is your "gamertag" or whatever.

when i get live, i'll look you up.

Swaps, I assume you like your new XBox, huh? :D

We're behind the times - just got a Playstation 2 last Christmas. I wanted Final Fantasy XII. I'm only about 1/4 of the way thru that game and I started it last January - just don't have the time. I intended on throwing myself into it during my surgery leave but never did. There are so many side quests, rare monsters, etc. Great game, though. Lot different than the old FFs. No surprise monster attacks.

Any good role playing games for the XBox?


P.S. You met John Randle? Lucky dog!

There's a good first person shooter called the Darkness for 360. I liked it a lot but it's fairly easy so it may be one to rent instead of buy.

I have resisted purchasing an Xbox 360 because it is a Microsoft product.

They also tend to burn up because of a poor design.

I, generally, would rather play PC games anyway. It's too bad Madden is always a feature bare PS2 clone rather than a feature expanded game.

Heh, it's kind of ironic that you won't buy a 360 because it's a Microsoft product but play your games on your PC (Which I would assume is running either windows or something to emulate windows).

Not that I'm pro Microsoft or even own an xbox of any kind, just seemed like a silly reason if you're going to play on PC anyway.

I haven't played FF XII.
But I HAVE played FFX which is a FANTASTIC game.

regular xbox has some cool games.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is REALLY cool. It's not associated with the movies at all. It has it's own original storyline. And your actions can determine if you're following the "light" or falling to the "dark" side. It's REALLY cool. That's the reason I bought an Xbox years ago. I bought an Xbox 360 because all the good games are being made for the "next gen" consoles. Plus I have a lot of friends in my hometown who have 360s and they play on Xbox Live all the time. So i'll be able to race forza with them or play madden against them when I hook up to live. Doesn't hurt that the 360 is about $300 cheaper then the PS3. I've heard the PS3 just kicks #### though.


yeah, i'm pretty cautious about the over heating thing. But Xbox upped their 6mo warranty to 3 years. Yes it sucks that this problem exists. But as long as I dont go crazy, i should be fine.

I can't wait for Madden though. I've been ancy for this since the freakin' draft. I'm going to try to get some days off work when it comes out so I can just nerd it up for days and days on end.

Knights of the Old Republic is VERY cool. I play it on PC, which I have heard has some things the XBox version does not. KOTOR 2 is even better! You get to build things like health packs using things you find. I highly recommend it.

Right now I am making my way through Elder Scrolls:Oblivion. I am a latecomer to the game but thoroughly enjoy its open endedness.

be careful with forza 2.. i had a launch 360 and after i had played forza for a while the colors went funny.. after a little while longer, the video output was completely messed up with a black screen and white dots flying by..

i've heard that there are certain games that cause the 360 to overheat more than others and forza is one of them.

it was sent in for repairs about 2 weeks ago and i haven't heard anything about it yet..

I agree that 1 was tougher than 2, by far.

If I recall correctly, you have to spike in to each console and overload each place the robots spawn from. When you overload them all, the door will open and the end cutscene will start. Then you have a REALLY nasty battle on your hands.

Do you have computer spikes in your inventory? You will need six, IIRC, for each terminal and I think there may be some in the boxes near each terminal.

If you don't have spikes, you are SOL.

There are computer consoles next to each of the places where droids spawn. Ignore the droids and use computer spikes to hack the terminals. Overload each terminal to destroy it and stop the droids from spawning. After you destroy all the terminals, the door should open.

Now, I played the PC version, so I am not sure if the XBox version is the same.

KOTOR I/II never gets old. I beat both of those games at least 10 times. I can't wait for Madden 08. Guitar Hero 2 is a really awesome game too! All Pro Football 2k is an awesome game, I got it like 2 weeks ago.

I've spent way too much of my life playing guitar hero (PS2 version). I just bought the Encore 80's version and can't wait for 3 to come out.

My room-mates and I hook it up to our surround sound system, one takes bass/rhythm, one takes lead. It's a good time.

I can almost beat the whole game on expert (The last two sections really screw me over though, I'm only half way through the next to last section on expert still)

I can't wait for EA's "Rock Band" to come out.


I'm going to see if I can get some of my buddies to "invest" with me and then rock the snot out of our heads.
