Re: Xbox Live (360)
 
psychoDiablo, I know exactly what you've been through. I got many friends in a forum who always says "Unreadable disk?", "Clean my lens? WHY!" and they're totally right, the console FUBAR'ed it self without any good reason! I suffered from it a bit, but know it's working like a charm.
The thing is, Microsoft does own Sony after the 'Exclusivity Show' we have seen, Ace Combat 6 was scheduled to release on the PS3, but that's old news, now it's exclusive on the Xbox 360. DMC, as the killer app from Capcom, as scheduled for the PS3, it's a Multi game now, even the PC got it's own share!
I only wish for Kojima to announce 'MGS 4' for the 360, and I'll kiss Sony good-bye.

+ all of the next-gen consoles got some serious shit, even Wii got some nasty problems... oh well :\

Re: Xbox Live (360)
 
waste of moneys ....

microsoft owns sony? then how can the ps2 kick so much ass and the 360 is a p o s ?

Kenji 05-03-2007 06:05 AM

Re: Xbox Live (360)
 
I meant in this generation. the original Xbox never inspired me to go and buy it, I don't know but I still prefer my PS2 over it. even with Ninja Gaiden, Conker, Halo and the others, I didn't like the console for an odd reason. But, with the 360 it's vice versa, all I'm seeing is real next gen games, next gen gaming experience and never endless fun -at least for me. the problem with the 360 is, well how can I say that ..... we're getting FUBAR'ed every now and then, sometimes an annoying 'Clean the disc' pop up, or your console starts getting nerves and all you can say is 'Fuck You Microsoft'. and really, the PS3 is not a must-have console for me, all the great titles are now heading to the 360, and the 'OMGBLURAYCELLRSX' propaganda is nothing but a pain in the ass, have you tried Oblivion or SC:Double Agent? the loading is real failure. that does not mean the console is gonna fail, but in my point of view, the 360 will rule this generation -excluding Wii, it's not a real next gen console.

You may want to wait for the 360 Elite, or just save for a PS3 when it's exclusive titles appear on the surface.

Re: Xbox Live (360)
 
tha'ts exactly what im gonna do.

i was never a fan of the xbox. kept telling my friend to get a ps2. but nope, he gets an xbox and agrees, ps2 rocks.

i've played almost all teh games out for this 360. none of them impressed me at all. Sure some are fun to play, but meh. 60 dollars to buy the game? Please...... better ps2 games worth 50.

60 dollars for games is rediculous. none of the games i have played are even close to being worth 60 bucks.

Re: Xbox Live (360)
 
You said Wii isn't a next gen system.

Maybe it doesn't have the specs, but it also does have more potential.
Ex. Can any "Next Gen" system play RTS (real time strategy) like the Age of Empires franchise? I know that the wii can, because it does have the remote and the button for it. The other consoles would be a pain to play it on if a joystick would be the way to move the cursor.

You don't need a supercomputer in a box to play games. When Corruption, Fire emblem, and BRAWL come out, the wii will pwn both the PS3 and the Xbox 360. Not to mention Twilight Princess, but that's already out and one game on its own can't make a system good, as we have seen with Halo 1 on the original X box.

Kenji 05-04-2007 02:16 PM

Re: Xbox Live (360)
 
^ I'm planning to get a Wii, Nintendo is my first choice in everything, but truth has got to be told, Wii is 'Cube with a new controller'. I played Wii Sport and Wario Ware in my friend's console, it's pretty awesome, fun to play. but -including every game that is out- in terms of graphics, Wii made me LOL. Far Cry and Red Steel are good examples, I finished Far Cry Instincts in my 360 and it was AWESOME, when I tried -just tried!- to play Far Cry on Wii, my eyes got hurt @_@ the graphics was tremendously BAD. yeah I know, the console is still fresh, and they MUST give it time to rise with it's sequels, such as Mario Galaxy, Super Smash, Metroid and all of the great stuff.
Still, even with the bad factors; Nintendo owned MS and Sony, and I believe that Wii is going to outsell both the 360 and the PS3. I still recall the first time they introduced the DS, everyone was 'WHAT? TOUCH? NAAAAH', but when the system went to the market, it blew everything away. the PSP, at first glance, looks good and stuff, but when it hits the market, man it just suck. how many GOOD PSP games are out? 5, 7, maybe 10? well the DS got a whole history in 'Perfection'. and that's why I trust Nintendo, they know how to deal with stuff, even though I didn't like GC as much as I liked my other consoles, but I still believe in Nin guys, aand waiting for their exclusives on the console.
Until that day, I'm gonna stick to my beauty, the 360 as long as I can. with Forza2 kicking out this month, it's gonna be real great.
Sorry for the long reply, though.

Hell yeah. Oblivion is the shit. I've played it twice now and that's saying something. The first time was when it first came out, I downloaded it and toned the graphics down a lot (toggling grass off was crucial!) so I can play it on my below specs computer. Now I borrowed my friends XBOX 360 and the game. It's so much fun!

I don't like how long it takes to load shit on the 360 though.

Re: Xbox Live (360)
 
well right now im using "Razored Wired" because my other account was shut down due to "fraud alerts" MS though someone hacked my account and was buying a shit load of points with it.

Turns out it was JUST ME, and they didnt even ask me if it was me first or not they just decided to shut me down and THEN email me, the "3 to 5 days" it was suppose to take for them to unlock it has now turned into 3.5 weeks.....
good thing you can make 3 1month gold accounts on a premium bundles

Re: Xbox Live (360)
 
What was your Gamerscore back then?
It would be lame if it was good and they just shut it out :\
And after MS last statement, I'm afraid that I may get my self a ban account. I'm in Kuwait, using 'Canada' as my country, and buying 'MS Points' from the Market Place using my Visa, which obviously from Kuwait. if, by any matter, they liked to screw the day for some gamers, my day gonna be screwed too.

I don't know if it's temporary, but I'm hating all the consoles right now. Last time I played my 360 was 2 days ago, hunger for SC. before that, I may stayed a whole month playing nothing -after getting the full % in SOTN. if it wasn't for PM Pearl, I'd be dead by now =_=
I think Forza 2 will pull me back and re-settle my mood :biggrin:

Should I add you in your 'Razored Wired' or is it temporary?

Wounded Satellite 05-04-2007 11:36 PM

Re: Xbox Live (360)
 
my other account is a low score too cuz i started my 360 not online and when i came to live i had to use my old account from my original xbox and i couldn't carry over my 30k+ gamer score. which totally sucked.

i haven't had the time to play much so its only about 960(?) something
but you can add razored wired, ive already added yours. i have to play it for awhile till i get my other account unlocked. + i still have a few "1 month free gold" subscription cards left

EC, playing War Craft does not make you a real gamer, lol. I played it for a week, hated it SO much, uninstalled it from my PC and kept playing my regular games. it's just that I can't get 'addicted' to a game, except for Street fighter.

Wii is directly pointed to the casual gamers, who aren't too fond with games, and play it from time to time. yeah, it DOES have a lot of great exclusive titles, and they are a must-buy to me, but comparing the 3 new consoles in terms of Full HD capability Outstanding graphics and excellent outcome, Wii does not stand a chance. It is still got fun games. Mario, Wario, Pokemon -RPG for god sake-, Zelda, Metroid, all of these are great sequels from Nintendo, not to mention what the 3rd party companies will bring us -aka Capcom, Konami and the rest.
Long story short; Wii -IMO- is a sub-console. meaning, my main console is the 360, and when I'm in a mood for some fun and stuff, Wii's gonna play it's role.

Well, I've been borrowing my friends' 360, as I said, but I haven't been able to use it for its HD capability. I don't have any additional connections than the ones I'm already using for the TV. I'll just take your word that it's good.

Now... one day... I'll have a PS3 and then I'll be a gamer again. You'll see.

Stop derailing every thread with your pitiful insults. I know I'm so fat that I have to use a giant redwood to brush my teeth. I try to stay on land and not move as much for fear of generating massive earthquakes but occasionally I do go in the ocean to bathe but I only end up causing tsunamis!

Okay, those were pretty dumb too. But I tried!

-=-=-=-=-=-

So all you XBOX fiends out there.... What are some good games that I should try out? I'm down for all types of strategy and most types of roleplaying games. I only care for a first person shooter if it's a really really good one. But I despise sports games (except basketball) and racing games.

Any suggestions?

Ok.

Gears of War: 3rd Person Shooter. By far, one of the best games that have been made in the gaming industry, ever. The game play is enthusiastically awesome, the options you got to kill your enemies\opponents are fantastic, and the weapons are cool, too. Also, the Multi player is SPECTACULAR, it's one of the few games that I keep playing online since day one -inspite of hating the online gaming, I couldn't stop playing it. Epic knows how to treat us. :biggrin:

Lost Planet: 3rd Person Shooter from Capcom. I trust Capcom ATW, and this title has done some blowjob for the console.

Enchanted Arms: RPG game from Ubi Soft, the game play is kinda unique, I recommend renting it rather buying it. I didn't like it a lot, but you may.

Rainbow Six: Vegas: Ubi Soft at it's best. FPS game running in Vegas, the graphics is top notch, the sounds are realistic indeed, and the game play is, I wouldn't say 'Unique in it's own' but it's fantastic. worth every penny ;)

Splinter Cell: Double Agent: Action\Stealth game from Ubi Soft (I think Montreal studios?). I, for my self, like it a lot. As usual with Ubi, the graphics are splendid, every thing's so wonderful, but it's up to you whether to like it or no -depending on the game play. worth a rent, at first.

This is for now, lol :biggrin:

gears of war is LAME>

it's a nice idea, but it doesn't cut it in my book. I hate shooting enemies fifty times int he head before they die. i hate shooting enemies 50 times period.
online is just rediculous.

now Lost Planet is something I can get into. I loved teh fire from explosions and god forsaken monsters 30 feet high leaping out from behind the fire. HAH amazing!

there is no game right now on that 360 worth SIXTY dollars. HellNo

Wounded Satellite 05-11-2007 09:15 PM

Re: Xbox Live (360)
 
I have been reading the mass effect book(REVELATION)* and it is surprisingly good, but the game comes out in September

and who knows if they will even keep that release date the same
but IT WILL BE worth the 60$

*its basically a prequel to the game, by the same guy who did the game's storyline. so you get the backstory before the game starts.

pD, it's just you hating the Xbox. I have the same feeling with the PSP, I can't play any game because they're all sucks goat balls. yeah, Daxter, MGS, Breath of Fire, Tekken, and all the great title, I just hate them on because of the PSP. The system is just lame, and the D-pad is the worst since Super Nintendo :\

Mass Effect is cool, all the images and videos are amazing. I'm just waiting for a demo, if there is.
Did you download Forza 2 demo? it's <3

im not just hating the 360, it's a crappy ass machine. just wait till ur xbox croaks and ur outside ur warranty.

they wont give the 75% off for repairs like they did for me.

the 360, or xbox2, is the most upsetting console of all time. what a gigantic let down

Dear Xbox LIVE Members:
During this past holiday season you helped us break a number of Xbox LIVE records. This included our largest sign-up of new members to Xbox LIVE in our 5 year history and just yesterday you broke the record for the single biggest day of concurrent members ever on the service.
As a result of this massive increase in usage we know that some of you experienced intermittent Xbox LIVE issues over the holiday break. While the service was not completely offline at any given time, we are disappointed in our performance. I would like to take this moment to thank each and every one of you for your patience and understanding as our team has worked around the clock to return the service to a stable state.
At the same time we would like to offer a token of our appreciation to all of you in celebration of record success for the service. And as a thank you for your loyalty during this holiday period, we will be offering all of our Xbox LIVE members around the world access to a full Xbox LIVE Arcade game that will be available to download free of charge. In the coming weeks we will be sharing the specific details of this offer with you.
Thank you again for helping make Xbox LIVE everything that it is today!

Sincerely,
Marc Whitten
General Manager, Xbox LIVE
Gamertag: Notwen


i bet you that they are gonna let us download some gay ass arcade game that everyone already has, but hopefully they will make another free game like ageis wings

the disconnects from XBL was really fustrating, i was tryin to play COD4 and it would let you get into the game but then 3 secs later it would give you a "connection interupted" and disconnect you from XBL then it would show you that your friends were on line only to disconnect you again.

i go so fustrated that i had to pull my ethernet cable and play some SP shit for awhile.

the only good thing that came out of the outages for me was getting to plan in a clan match with Red vs Blue members :biggrin:

since the holidays its gotten a lil better, ive noticed some disconnects from XBL here and there, but if you shift your multiplayerness to the off hours of the day you get a pretty good game play on live.

even better... why would I play a console... when I can get all the PC games for free?

I have a PS3 and a 360... Im going to sell them... I never even use them... PS3 is ok but... i just dont play it... and 360.. well despite being inferior... makes you pay for EVERYTHING...
