So, I managed to find a cheap Xbox 360 but I have no friends :( Just wondering if anyone in DPC Land wanted to share gamertags? Mine is Konador.

I've tried signing up for a gold account but I dont have Visa, Mastercard or American Express, so I guess I'll have to buy a voucher thing somewhere else and wait for it to be delivered, doh! I want it now :P

edit: Just bought some 48 hour live subscriptions from ebay for a quid, so hopefully I'll get the email soon. This way I can just use it at weekends and not waste time during the week where I should be working :P

Which GRAW? 1 or 2?

Watch for a friend request from Franco De Paw that will be me. Live close in Shooters see if you can grab a used copy of Rainbow Six Vegas...

Actually I think I have one of everything...and the holiday season is so gonna suck this year as Tons of really good games are on the horizon.

The better half is all into the 360 now (something she has always hated) so it is getting tougher to play with the boys these days...she is always wanting to kick my butt at something... We got Scene It! just the over day and there went about 6 hrs that we will never get back.

We should do a Bomberman fest on XBL Arcade one of these days... the HD version is cool and a lot of fun.

GRAW 1, I'm really terrible at it tho! I'm a PC FPSer through and through and moving from mouse and keyboard to gamepad is a tough one! The xbox was cheaper than a graphics card that'd run these new games decently though, so I'll get the hang of it eventually! :)

Its good to be online even without paying as a Silver member as there are hundreds of demos and you can compare your achievements against your friends :)

You only get the trial with a new Xbox I think, but I got mine second hand. I'm getting the hand of using teh controller for FPS but i'm quite slow at aiming. I love TF2 as well, what name are you on Steam?

You should also get a free month with Halo3....I got one when I bought it...

He is really good at all of the "War" Games. When you find him on xbox live you will be able to view all of his achievements and his gamer score. I think his favorite is Halo 3 and GRAW

I've been considering getting an XBOX 360 myself for a little while. I just bought The Orange Box and was introduced to the Half Life 2 series which I really enjoyed. I haven't played many FPS before mainly just Bioshock and years ago the original DOOM. I also played Heavy Gear a few years back and I tried playing online and that had to be one of the lamest experiences of my life. I'd try to get a game going and every once in a while I'd get someone to join but then they would pretty much just sit there. It was so boring. On the flip side the people at my work would stay late and play Quake every Friday and one day got me to join in. I didn't even know what was happening because I spent 99% of the time on the floor lying in my own blood. So I've shied away from online stuff but admit am intrigued by it. I'm ok at the games these days but I certainly am not one of those Korean kids that starves themselves to death because they can't leave the computer for 5 minutes.

What's the state of online gaming these days? Is there room for and occasional gamer like me or would I likely still just be sitting on the floor in a pool of my own blood?

From what I can work out there are different lobbies... some for hardcore gamers, some for casual recreational gamers. There's also "Trueskill" which I think matches you up with other people of a similar skill rating. Haven't had much chance to try it out yet but it seems good so far! I've just been playing a few online games of Worms, fantastic :)
