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 my fiance has expressed a reasonable interest in video gaming, which I am more than enthusiastic to encourage. Over the past few months, she's taken a shine to Viva Pinata. Since we are not able to live together currently, she doesn't have access to an xbox regularly, and uses mine when she's around.
Her birthday is coming up, and I wanted to get her an xbox of her own to play Viva Pinata and its sequel with. However, it's been ages since I paid the console market any attention, as I'm primarily a PC gamer. I don't have the slightest clue about the different Xbox models anymore, and I have no idea what would be good for her or where to get it.
I assume whatever I get her will need to have some sort of hard drive capacity, but with that said I doubt she'll be the 'hardcore-gaming xbox-live' type. She'll probably use it for cute/fun games like, well, Viva Pinata.
I'm hoping someone can give me some pointers to picking up an affordable Xbox for her that will suit her needs, as I have no idea where to buy from. A quick search on google turns up plenty of sites that seem to have the console for cheap, but they look dubious at best.
