OK OK

I finally committed myself to the console world.... After hearing about LIVE not being made for the PC any mores I had to make a hard choice and made it...

As you can gather by the title, I went and got a XboX Elite package and got Live 07 ad Fifa 07 (they were cheap, while I wait for 09íz), Also got, Army of Two, GTA 4, COD 4

So here I am
What do I do and how do I get to play with some of you guys, I mean get an absolute smackdown from you guys, I got ADSL and it comes with a free 1 month Gold Membership so here I come...
First thing might be to download some Roster Updates for LIVE...
Any pointers, tips, help on a newbie entering the scary world of online gaming

Thanks in Advance...

My gamertag is travmil (clever, I know). Add me to your frinds list if you like. As far as other games, if you like a great single player experience Assassin's Creed is an excellent game and if you look around it can be had for $29.99. You will love GTA4. I like shooters, but COD4 wasn't my cup of tea and I thought COD3 and even COD2 were much more fun. I really like Bioshock and Prey. Orange Box is also excellent. Gears of War is a must buy but seriously when are they gonna lower that price, it's coming up on two years old. Nothing else jumps out. If you like RPG's Oblivion is the gold standard on Xbox and Lost Odyssee is pretty good too. I'm sure others will have TONS of suggestions and I know several of the folks here get together and play various games.

I would play unranked games first... They tend to be more fun anyways because its less serious... And playing on live in ranked games.. You will prolly sweat through games..lol.. But it's cool.. I loved live when I had it.. But my xbox broke.. So now im just saving up for a ps3..

I wish you good luck.. And Im sure you will have fun.. You can send me a pm if you have any questions.. I know my way around there pretty well.. I have had a lot of different accounts.. The one linked is my oldest one that I first used but then I stopped because I heard about how you could get free ones.. And im cheap. :)

Games I reccommend: GTA4, Gears of War, COD4, Halo 3 (my personal favorite), all updated sports games you want..

yeah good point, should have added my tag, Indiator..... i was running of idea's n all the good ones were taken...

Thanks Travmill, i'll add you and hope to play with ya some time... still struggling with GTA4... dam i just completed the misson of playing pool... i really need to figure what I'm doing... seems like I still am in the tutorial mode.... got potental tho...

Agreed, COD 4 is ok, seems like so far, only played a couple hours but i'm allways chasing the others instead of leading em, maybe me...but the classic WWII shooter just had something about it, i played 2 or 3 on the PC over and over again....

Gears of War eh, sounds the most intresting out of them you mentioned, played Prey some on the PC, not a great deal...

It sure is a whole new world, it was funny, i walked in there to get a Xbox and spent almost the same price of the console, on games and extra controller and extended warranty and chargers, there ones of's but it was scary, like buyin a new car and getting all the options...

the next Question would be

NBA 2K9

NBA LIVE 09

or NBA 2009

there the big 3 or maybe the last is just on the PS3,

Thinking about buying both/all three just because i can but not sure.. intrestin to hear the pro's and cons on each

You'll have to get with someone else for sports games. I haven't played one since i got suckered into buying Madden 07. Unless you count NBA Street Homecourt which I liked but is an arcade style and not a sim style.

Nothing wrong with being cheap, gotta save money, Not sure what to make of this tho, with a couple games i got, i have 3 serials now for XBOX LIVE GOLD one month free usage, does this mean i need three accounts ? to use them all or can i use all three on my one account after each other..


Thanks Travmil, i added you, what games do you specialise in... im to scared to play NBA online yet, reckon i'll get smashed, plus i don't like playin my flatmate as he just dunks and dunks and dunks... and i like to pass, be real..... big shock playing online i guess

Thanks all so far, how do i get added to the GxboxLive on PD, edit... fixed up, I'm here !!

I mostly like great single player adventure type games. Right now I'm playing through Metal Gear Solid 4 on PS3. I will play great games of any kind though. I have Gamefly so I test everything before I buy. My favorite 360 games are Assassin's Creed and Mass Effect. I also have Guitar Hero II and III and played through both of them. I can't wait for Alan Wake (http://www.alanwake.com). I'm not a fan of online really. I used to play a TON of Team Fortress Classic when Half Life first came out. But that was before I got tired of dealing with dumbasses who would rather ruin a game for everyone than play it. Now I pretty much avoid it altogether.

Oh and to answer your question you can use your three one month trials back to back to back on the same account. When your first month runs out just enter the code on your next card for another free month.
