The Xbox Thread (Now with 100% more 360) *Xbox One additives

Since we have a thread dedicated to Nintendo, I thought we could have one dedicated to the newest contender in the console wars, Microsoft's Xbox. There are tons of great games coming out for it this year, so this thread is for discussioon of thse games, and games already out, like Halo!

I've also added all known XBL GamerTags to this thread, because we really don't need two Xbox dedicated threads.

Mercenaries is a pretty cool game. There are alot of faults in it, but it's still a long game and pretty fun to destroy anything in the way. And I am waiting for Rainbow Six: Lockout on March 15th. And of course Halo 2 will always be one of my favourites. Also WrestleMania 21 will be intense as well!

For anyone who ever got messed with by standby'ers in Halo 2, this video will be somewhat satisfying. Know that these guys are screwed!

Let the video load before you play it, or it'll just be all choppy.

I have been getting into Xbox since my Dad bought one. I got him KOTOR but he hasnt playe dit yet. He wants me to beat it first and tell him how it is or something. Anyways I really like that game. Fable is pretty fun too. I havnt really tried anyother games but so far I like the rpgs and I like the Oddworld game

Isn't there supposed to be a new oddworld coming out?

Edit my xbox live name is Knights Duke but i'm hardly ever on, it's been over a month. I tend to get on and play when a game first comes but that is about the extent of it. I guess i just prefer online gaming on the pc although xbox live is extremely well done.

Alright I added you Duke. All the Dromers need to get on for at least a couple games of Big Team Battle!

The new Oddworld game is Stranger, which is a 1st person/3rd person Action/Shooter. I played my friends copy, and it definately has some merit. "Live" Ammo is not only cool, but so original I can't believe no one ever thought of it before. BTW Spitfire, KOTOR is amazing, you should also try Morrowind if MASSIVLY open ended RPG gameplay is your style. Perhaps we should make a list of must play Xbox games for Xbox newbies?

Thanks TMB. I only wish there were as many Xbox fans as there are Gamecube fans here.

I recently got Stranger's Wrath and KOTOR 2 imported, and I think Stranger's Wrath is a really excellent game. I was very surprised considering how poor (at least in my opinion) the previous Oddworld games were. However, my reaction to KOTOR 2 was quite the opposite. Having played through KOTOR thinking that it's an amazing game, I was quite disappointed with KOTOR 2. Did anyone else find KOTOR 2 disappointing?

Perhaps this is just because of how KOTOR was so original, so it had a kind of shock value.

I second that... and yeah I quite enjoyed Strangers Wrath aswell... very original game.... Haven't got to play KOTOR 2... but yeah I've heard its dissapointing.... I liked the first one though... which is weird cause I'm not much of an rpg guy... Oh yeah... Peanut you forgot Ninja Gaiden and Chronicles of Riddick... both are very good... very hard, but very good...

Added it. Anyone want to try and come up with a date and time for a Halo 2 bash?

Edit: JameO and myself will be on Halo for awhile just messing around and trying to do cool stuff. If you want to join in just add one of us and jump into the room!

Go to the very bottom, click on free. Then wait a while there will be a timer at the bottom. Once it is done it will automatically show a download button. Enjoy!

The messing around on a couple maps was pretty cool tonight, but the matchmade games were TERRIBLE. Just no fun at all. Maybe it's because we were all a little more moody than usual. Don't think we're assholes, idiots, and terrible players like that EVERY night Mondo.

don't worry about it... I had fun... we got are butts kicked in the matchmaking, but I guess thats cause I don't know your guys' styles very well... I'm use to always having a sniper... whatever, it was fun while it lasted... we definatley need to get a big custom game going with a bunch of people from the T-Drome here... that would be super fun...

The problem is our friend Ringo. He always has to have either a sniper or a rocket, something like that. We don't play with him all that often though, if you ever get the chance, Ai, myself, and JameO are the real team to play with. You'd have the sniper whenever you pleased, we rarely use it.
