OK, I got one...
« on: December 30, 2011, 04:25:57 PM »
Apparently on my secret (so secret, I didn't know about it  :tinfoil) wishlist for Xmas was an Xbox 360.  And Santa delivered the goods.  So coming from a 100% PC gaming background (apart from the WII, but lets not insult the gaming world by calling this a gaming console), what is some advice around what games, tips tricks, apps features etc I should be looking for. 

It came with the Kinnect thing-a-ma-jig.  Finally got round to plugging it in last night (gave me an excuse to buy a new TV  :grin1), but haven't played it yet. 

Which of the Halo series in is the best.  I just ordered MW3 for it as I wasn't going to get it for computer.

I heard about a good game you can get on the Xbox......Battlefield 3 I think. I'll ask my mate at work who has one.  :tongue1

Seriously though he likes Battlefield 3 and other shooters but I think you will be too used to keyboard/mouse to play FPS on the Xbox. Stick to third person games and using it as a media server.

It's also good for holding paper down during a windy day. :grin1

Halo: Reach is the best of the series, easily and you should be able to pick it up dirt cheap by now.  :awe
Halo CE Anniversary is the HD remake of the original 10y.o. game and is only ~$50 brand new too.

Forget DLC for most games tho. It's a lot more expensive than on PC  :unsureabout

Also feel free to add me if you want a game of anything - tar0t  :tongue1

Now you can play the campaign in 4 player co-op (plus the usual deathmatch stuff)

Proper online play requires an XBox Live subscription ~$80/year.
You can pick up a 1, 2 & 3 month trial cheap tho...

Played Halo for the first time in a year or so the other day. I can't hit the broad side of a barn (unless it happens to be my teamates. I have a natural talent for rocketing my buddies, so it seems :p)
