    wow, have a m0dded xbox 360 now.....wooot!

    I'll be playing virtua tennis 2009 this weekend for it.

    Meanwhile, on my m0dded wii... I have motion plus attachments and the new Tiger woods 10, Virtua tennis 2009, and grand slam tennis....ALL of which use the motion plus!

    I think grand slam tennis may be more fun, but not sure yet. Anyway, both of these tennis games are FAR better than the wii sports tennis game....

    looking forward to a nice weekend with friends and gaming :D

    i have waayy to many systems to keep track of now...ps3 is the only system i have that isn't modded (it's not moddable)

    DS, DSi, PSP, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360.....all modded.....all phree games....oh my :-o

    P.S. my parents NEVER bought me a game system...i would have given my left nut for a Gameboy back in the day. The original gameboy...wow. My first console ever was the xbox about 7 years ago.

    I would dominate you all in GST, but EA doesn't like me and won't let me connect. I love it.



    BTW, the net game is absurdly overpowered in GST.

    Anyone rocking Quake live? I feel like it is 1999 again- lol

    It is a free browser based game which is pretty close to the Q3 retail version. There are actually a lot of people playing and you join servers based on skill level.

    Guys, Grandslam Tennis is the S**T!!
    Although it looks cutsie with the graphics, it's quite a hard game to master with the wii motion plus. Defintely a learning curve to playing it.
    I really, really love this game. Playing at the French Open is the best. Sliding around here and there. And they've got the players racquets and clothes down to the T. The only thing that they missed is Andre Agassi. They got all the other greats like; Sampras, Edberg, Borg, Becker and McEnroe, but no Agassi? Apart from that, I give it a 9/10!!

    It would be alot of fun with mates or at parties.

    agreed. virtua tennis 2009 for wii isn't nearly as good.

    by the way, do you move yourself from side to side with the directional buttons? or do you let the computer move you.

    have you figured out how to do lobs/drop shots?

    anyone here like the game peggle? it's awesome. I think you can get it for ipod touch or iphone right now on sale for 99 cents too--well worth it.

    or $10 on Steam I think

    another game by the same company that is awesome is: plants vs. zombies.....man, i haven't had this much fun playing a game in a long time

    Are there still a lot of people playing UT2004?

    I have been playing UT3. The only active servers are for TDM/DM and VCTF and some warfare. UT is so splintered now with groups of people playing all 3 versions, but no big group like there was in '99.

    I let the computer move for me. Apparently you can connect the nunchuck, but I think that would be more of a hinderance. To do a lob you hold 'A' while swinging. To do a drop shot, you hold 'B' (button on the back) while swinging.

    FINALLY FIFA 10 in America comes out tomorrow so I can get it. The amount of abuse from my mates in England over this (not to mention Fena with a cheeky message!) of having this for the last two weeks has been nauseating v.v.

    Anyone else getting it on 360 or already have it? (Outside of Fena ****ing getting it on its release! :))

    Do you have it? I'm leaning more towards NBA Live 10 - they seem to be getting even reviews. I've had the last 3 or 4 NBA 2K games but am just kind of bored with it.

    I have 2k10, and it is the better game. More game modes, the My Player mode is good, and the gameplay is great.

    Been playing the hell out of the FIFA 10 demo for the last week.

    I want to pick it up......BUT at the same time I'm not sure if I will as I haven't played FIFA 09 for a few months because I got bored of it. I think FIFA 09 was the only game I played for about 4 months straight.....

    IMHO - the new game play is an improvement and it makes it harder to score and the games look more like real soccer. However, I think the graphics haven't improved and in some cases look worse.....

    I"m also looking forward to Modern Warfare 2 (can't decide if I should get it for my PC or Xbox) Just Cause 2, Spinter Cell Conviction, and Mass Effect 2.

    Unfortunately I am a computer gamer lol. I don't play as much as I used to, but it is hard to get away from them.

    Games I still play:

    Counter-Strike 1.6 - I cannot believe I still play this
    Defense of the Ancients aka Dota - Used map settings game in WC3
    Starcraft - I still play on iCCup sometimes, but not as much as I used too

    That's it for me, I don't do any console gaming (at least new consoles). I still bust out my NES and SNES sometimes and play the good old games.

    I bought Halo 3 ODST a few days ago and its a good game. I just got done playing some single player and multiplayer and so far the single player has been solid. There really isnt a lot of changes though, there is no new weapons or vehicles, its really what it says it is an expansion. When they make another Halo game they need to make it where people can join a multiplayer game while in progress similar to the Call of Duty games because it sucks when people quit. At least with the COD games when someone quits another player comes in and replaces the quitter.

    Also Im looking forward to the new Call of Duty game.

    I never got into Halo. I just picked up and Xbox last year and my last console before that was the first play station so I totally missed all the excitement about Halo.

    I thought about getting ODST, but the reviews sounded like only Halo fans would really appreciate it....

    OK, dumb question. Does NBA 2K10 have the new Timberwolves court on it or do they still have the old checkerboard looking floor on the game. my Team (the Wolves) suck so I at least want to have the updated court for them to play on :???:

    Haha! It's pretty tricky to start of with, it's taken me 2 weeks to start to feel comfortable with it.

    The defenders on there are so powerful, little players like Messi get barged off the ball so easily but if you can get the skilled dribbling working then it's brilliant. If you find the skilled dribbling tricky then it's very hard to score at all.

    Noticed this in the demo. Very easy to get pushed off the ball and you have to be able to create space if you want to get a shot off. On top of that, the defenders lunge and dive for the balls in very realistic ways.

    FWIW - Scored a sick backheel goal from about 12 yards out yesterday in the demo with Messi...... maybe I will get it afterall.....

    I'm sure you will get it yeah :)

    The only thing about the game that isn't so great is the shooting, the finesse shot goes wide 9 times out of 10 (even when you are alone and through on the keeper).

    They have improved everything in the gameplay, apart from the shooting which was gone backwards.

    It does for the 360/ps3 versions, but not for ps2 I think.

    Trust me this game is fun, it's not perfect, but it's probably the best NBA game I've played and most fun.

    I found the demo far easier to get into than '09 - probably because I had played PES each year before switching to FIFA last year. Also for the harder scoring I played on semi/manual settings on '09 anyway so missing sitters won't be anything new for me :).

    Anyway I just got it! Going to be playing the hell out of it for quite a while I'd be worried if I were you I may just nick a win this year ;).

    Great thread. Any of you guys play Battlefield 1943 yet? Excellent game for the price. PM me on XBL or something for those who have it so we can go own.

    PS, corssing fingers hoping for a awesome Top Spin 4 in the distant future

    Sounds good! mine is:

    Good game! I hooked up an old tv so it was my first game in a week, it's not HD ready so the picture quality is pretty bad and the screen is really small but it's better than nothing.

    What did you think about the 3rd goal? Vucinic executing 2 skilled dribbles past your defence and an inch perfect pass for Menez to put it into the empty net ;) quality!

    Breaker and Fena,

    Mine is: jrstriker1206

    I played online last night and lost both matches. One in a shootout and the other 0-1. I swear there was a lid on the goal on the 0-1 match, I had so mandy chances.

    See you online....

    I havent played bf 43 yet. I believe thats the download from bf bad company for around 15 bucks. Thats good you brought that up because I may have to buy that soon. I was a big fan of bf 1942, I used to play that game religiously everyday. BF 42 was one of the best pc games I ever played such as the battle of omaha beach, battle of berlin, battle at stalingrad, battle at iwo jima, etc... it was a great ww2 online game.

    Bad Company I personally thought, was horrible. Only the destructive enivronments were the real highlight. But no, BF 1943 isn't a DLC for just Bad company, it's its own game.

    IMHO - Bad Company is fun in online multiplayer.

    I liked the single player too, but more for the humor.

    Haven't tried BF 1943 - not into WWII games....

    I just bought bf43 about an hour ago and so far its good. Its kind of a hybrid of bf42 and bad company with the destructive environments. I hope they make more maps including the ones in europe such as the battle of stalingrad, battle of berlin, battle of omaha beach, etc... I preferred the european theater more in bf42 then the pacific front.

    I wonder if people still play bf42 online.

    it really depends on what resolution youll be running crysis in.

    For 1920 1200, you need pretty much top of the line stuff to run it maxed out. fast i7, 6 gig fast ram, ssd, gtx27+ X2, that will run it good at that resolution +

    I just got it this week, though I have to finish COD 2 first (I know, I know I'm running behind). I have the opposite problem, I need cool games that will run on a circa 2005 laptop (admittedly a pretty kick butt machine for the time but still). The demo ran fine on lower resolutions.

    I get decent results from running Crysis on my rig. Usually get a good 20 fps on medium to high with no anti-aliasing.
