I actually wish I bought the 360 sooner it's kinda hard to find some of the games I missed, like Dead Rising and Dynasty Warriors, and I've realized there are more game I want to play on the 360 than I expected to!  When ever I got to the used games store I see a game or two used that I wanted to play and there quite a few games I want on XBLA....

Right now I'm having way too much fun playing Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga, you get an achievement for beating up Jar-Jar... I love this game! X3



Speaking of achievements, they are an effective way to make you play the game more. I don't think I'm achievement whore (although I already have more points almost everybody on my friend list) but the do help go a little further. I tend to just beat the game and leave it, but if the achievement looks fun and manageble I'll give it a try!


My Nintendo Fanboyism was at an all high when I was in New York, specially with my trip to Nintendo World, but now it's back to an all time low... I've barely played any Nintendo games since Phantom Hourglass and when Smash Bros. Brawl comes I'll have a blast, but after that? That's the problem... Apart from the occasional Wii Ware or VC game, I don't see anything exciting from Nintendo in the future...

Speaking of Wii Ware now that's it finally out, it's obvious that the Wii needs an upgrade... NOW! I find it tedious and ridicolous to spend so much time copying and deleting games just to make room for the newer one! "Wii" need a hard drive.... ASAP!

Well some of us don't have the ability to buy the same amount of games so we just have to beat the achievements best we can. You may have me beaten in achievements but I challenge you to beat me in Hexid score.

I came in late as well, and I still can't afford. This might just be because I have been putting down money on Tim Shafter's company next game Brutal Legends I can get it when it comes out so that I can get a copy before it becomes impossible to find. Psychronauts was like that and I am betting Brutal Legends will be as well. I am proud to say I only have 3 bucks more to put down on it.

There's so much to do on the Wii! Mario Kart Wii rocks, WiiFit is fantastic, No More Heroes is a must-play, Wario Land Shake is coming up as is Kid Icarus and there's some buzz on Mega Man 9. If you can't find something to play on the Wii, you're not looking.

I'm not that good at racing games... Wii Fit is fun, but No More Heroes I'm still kinda weary to buy it since I didn't like Killer 7, if the Wii had demos I could just try it out, but know I'm just waiting to find it used cheap...

As for the other, this are "TBA" games, the US will get the for Xmas if they're lucky and Europe will get them in Summer 09, if we're lucky...

That's the main issue, there are good games, but the gap between them is too big. I know Nintendo should take their time to make their games but it seems everybody else is making exclusives for the other consoles...

And if it's multiplataform, ever though most 360 games cost 70€ (100$) they go do down very quickly, Wii and DS games... don't...

As for Meg Man 9, I've heard it coming for PSN and XBLA, not Wii Ware, and even if it were, I'd still pick the XBLA version, because, like I said before, I'd hate to delete half of my library to play a new game...

I dunno, maybe it just seems like there is nothting for the Wii since I'm playing catch up with the 360, I know I thought the same with the PSP until I caught up on games.

I'm sure the new Wario will be a blast... But Kid Icarus? Anything could happen!

I don't really know what I did before getting XBL last month. Playing CoD online is an absolute blast.

I'd really like to play No More Heroes, since I enjoyed Killer7. But alas, no Wii :(

I only had the free month that game with the Xbox and nobody wanted to play with me... XP

Hopefully when Castle Crashers is out someone will?

If we weren't in such drastically different time zones, I'd totally volunteer.

I can't wait for castle crashers. I used to be on an art/animation forum with Dan Paladin, the guy who did all the art for alien hominid and castle crashers. Awesome guy.

You never know, we might find each other online at the same time more often than you think?
