In celebration of my new 360! Of course, I picked a pretty slow week to start doing this.

Games on Disc:
Madden NFL 08 en Espańol
NCAA March Madness 2008

Live Arcade (on Wednesday):
Arkadian Warriors-a simplistic RPG. 800 Microsoft points ($10 US).
GripShift-it says it's a driving game that combines missions, stunts, and puzzles. 800 Microsoft points ($10 US).

Other Downloadable Content:
Halo 3 Heroic Map Pack: includes 3 new multiplayer maps. 800 Microsoft points ($10 US). If you have Halo 3 and don't want to pay for it, it'll be available for free sometime in the spring of 2008.

Japan:
Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom-will be coming out in North America in a month.
Shikigami no Shiro 3-to be released in North America as Castle Shikigami 3.
Smash Court Tennis 3-to be released in North America.
Stuntman Ignition-came out in North America in August.

So which model did you get finally?

As far as 360 releases go, I'm done buying games for 2007. Rock Band will fulfill my gaming needs for a long while. Best thing is the weekly DLC songs that can be purchased individually or a 3-pack for a slight discount. My points card should be arriving soon so I can get the Metallica and Police packs already released, and in time for Buddy Holly and My Iron Lung next week.

Caliban talking about Xbox Original games decided it for me, but not in the way you'd think. Most of the popular Xbox games they're going to put on (Psychonauts excluded) are available on disc for less than the price. For example, amazon is showing Halo: Combat Evolved available from J&R Music and Computer World for $9.99.

So with no Xbox Originals, no movie rental, no TV show download, and no High Def TV I figured I'd rather go with the Pro bundle that came with two free games (Marvel Ultimate Alliance and Forza 2) rather than the Arcade that came with 5 free Xbox Arcade games + the larger hard drive. And if I end up using all the space, I can always switch to a 120 GB hard drive later on.

Oh, here's my gamer card.



I'm still very early obviously. And I suck at Katamari Damacy.

I just got the wireless network set up in my house so that the 360 and the Wii could connect wirelessly. So with the 360, the games, and the wireless stuff, that's $700 I spent in the last three days. I feel sick.

FYI, My 360 had a TON of demo software already on the HD when I bought it (new) a couple months ago. Deleting those frees up a fair chunk of space.



It says so right here in the wcw handbook!

Just sent a friend invite. The games that you and I both have are Halo 3, Forza 2 and Marvel Alliance. I really want to get Beautiful Katamari but I don't think that will happen until 08. Also got a bunch of arcade games which are awesome because most are playable online.

And if you like rock music, then get Rock Band!!!
