Default Dose anyone here get on Xbox Live?

If so what game do you play online the most?

I just recently upgraded my Xbox Live account from silver to gold and played my 1st online game on Saturday night. I played just a quick game of Tiger Woods 2007 front 9 on Pebble Beach. What was cool is how the head set plugs directly into the wireless remote and you can talk to the person you are playing. I set up the game and all of a sudden someone accepts the invite and I hear this “hello is anyone there” in a very thick Australian ascent I said high to the guy and we started our game the whole time I was sitting there shooting the breeze with this Ausie I had never meet. I was utterly amazed Bill Gates is a frigging genius. Playstation had a huge jump start on the video game console market and I will admit I was a Playstation guy until I got my Xbox 360 and I don’t think I will ever go back Xbox360 has really done a marvelous job on the system and now I am hooked on online gaming just curious how many ISHrs are also Xbox Live gamers.

I am although my XBOX is currently being repaired after is finally failed me after 13 months ( I got mine on launch)

I play NBA2k7,Madden 07 and Tiger Woods 07 alot.

Tiger Woods is really fun to play with 4 people online.

Also if you have Gears of War, you can play CO-OP with another friend over Live, no lag or anything and no split screen, one plays Marcus the other plays Dominic.

box Live is great and MUCH MUCH better than anything Playstation has ever done.

Well woth the $50 bucks a year.

I'm on the 360, but I rarely play any sports games. I like to shoot people in the face, so you'll usually find me on Rainbox Six Vegas or some other Clancy Game.

I havent played a Playstation since I got my original xbox and definately not now that I have the 360...:

XBOX Live =

Playstation Network =

Wii Online =

All of that is besides the point (just wanted to throw it out there). Having said that, yes I play XBOX Live. I'll even take it a step further. I'll create three different categories. Let's call them categories 1, 2 and 3 (rocket science huh?). Category 1 being the best XBOX Live games; best meaning superior multi-player fun accompanied by a huge network of players. Category 2 being games you'd imagine would be fun online, but stink. Category 3, my personal favorites, also being the most played (by me).

1

● Gears of War
● Madden 07
● Rainbow Six Vegas
● Dead or Alive 4
● Tiger Woods (06 or 07)
● Prey
● NBA 2K7 (much improved versus 06)
● Street Fighter II (XBOX Live Arcade)
● Fight Night Round 3

2

● NBA Live (any version)
● Project Gotham Racing
● F.E.A.R. (being overshadowed by Gears of War)
● Call of Duty (2 or 3)
● Perfect Dark Zero
● Top Spin
● Dead or Alive Xtreme 2
● Moto GP 06
● Saints Row

3

● Street Fighter II (XBOX Live Arcade)
● Gears of War
● Dead or Alive 4
● Madden 07
● Tiger Woods 06

Extra Credit - of course Halo 3 will murder all other 360 Live games once it floods the streets (or living rooms I should say). I truly enjoy the throw-back classics, such as Street Fighter II. I hope to see more in the future. Maybe Mortal Kombat II. If not in the realm of the 360, I'd love to see games like the original Mario Kart for the SNES or the greatest multi-player game of all time Golden Eye 64 become online accessible. Yes, Golden Eye 64 is Halo's daddy.

I used to be a regular Xbox Live gamer. Then I got addicted and it affected my grades so I stopped. When I was on Xbox Live I played Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3, Rainbow Six 3 Black Arrow, and Halo 2.

Anyone ever use standby in any game?

You could use it to gain an advantage in all the games I played. In Halo 2, if someone used standby, there would easily be a clear advantage and it wouldn't be fun. I only used it when my opponent used it.

Boring stuff aside...

I used standby in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3. Best thing I ever did on there! You could glitch your gun to make it look like you had grenades in hand, either though on your screen, you could have a gun out and ready to fire. Once I somehow planted two remote charges on the ground on one remote. I never did it again after I did it that once probably just got lucky. The best thing I ever did in Clancys was get on top of buildings, get outside of levels and go far enough to make it look like a dot, and kill opponents before a round even started (for those who don't know...you cannot do this without standby or you cannot get do any of these things regularly).
