I’ve been a big fan of Xbox360! I have reviewed several games and consider myself a gamer. Then Kinect for Xbox 360 arrived! Unlike most of the other motion games, you don’t need any wires or controllers for the Kinect system.
First things first, THANK YOU Microsoft for making this a multiplayer game! I know most of the Xbox world plays on-line, but I’m an old school, have a couple beers with a buddy, shoot ‘em up guy! Multiplayer two controller campaign games are becoming rare, so when Gears of War 3 showed up at the front door, I couldn’t wait to play.
Video games seem like they have been around forever! Yes, I will be dating myself once again saying I remember playing “pong” and “battle tanks” on one of the original video game systems. Some old school games are making a comeback. In the days of A, B, X, Y, RT, LT, RB and LB one game that is making its way back to the playing field is Mega Man. It was actually pretty funny watching my son get frustrated over a two button game.
I have said it here before and I will say it again, EA SPORTS Rock!. It cant be easy coming up with new features to add year after year, however EA SPORTS does it time and time again. Madden NFL 11 now has GameFlow which is an offensive coordinator that can call the plays for you, and gives you tips right in your headset. This is perfect for two player games.
If you havent played XBox360 in surround sound, you are truly missing out! Some new games from EA that have just been released would be perfect! Battlefield: Bad Company 2 had me hooked from the start. I like the story line of tracking down a weapon and a few bad guys.
I have to share some exciting news. The Xbox 360 Elite has dropped $100 in price to a new MSRP of $299. The Elite console comes with a massive 120 gig hard drive, headset and network cable, and for the holidays, two games Lego Batman and Pure. I love the game selection as it gives you something for the entire family. For the golfers in the family, test your skills against the best in EA SPORTS Tiger Woods PGA TOUR10.
What man cave would be complete without a gaming system? I have tried just about every system out there, but when it comes down to my man cave there is only one, the Xbox360. It is pretty cool using the high definition Epson projector with the Xbox360.
