Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I finally made the leap into the ranks of Xbox 360 owners. I got an arcade from Amazon, with the deal that also gave me a $100 amazon gift certificate. I have to spend it all at once, so I'm trying to figure out how to get the most fun for my buck.
Here's what I have in the cart right now:
Refurb starter pack (20gb HDD, headset, 3 months live) $50
Unreal Tournament 3 $12
Gears of War $18
Dead Rising $14
Viking: Battle for Asgard $13
I got the starter pack because I want to be able to download some games, mostly Megaman 9. I figure it might help with Netflixx, too. I know Gears of War is supposed to be good. I think Dead Rising is supposed to be good. I've like Unreal in the past and Viking was cheap and had decent reviews.
I'm open to most games. I don't think I want to get into any of the Guitar Hero type stuff. I'm not a sports fan, so I don't want to play Madden, but I don't mind less realistic sports games. I liked Super Mario Soccer on the SNES a lot, for example. An RPG might be nice, too.
I have a pretty decent PC, so that rules some stuff out. I have the PC versions of the Orange Box, Bioshock and ES:Oblivion.
