Subject: Favourite X box games.

Written By: holicman on 01/22/08 at 12:15 am

My favourites are any Fifa and motorsport games.

I also enjoy Dynasty warriors and other war games like Call of Duty, Medal of Honour and I am mad on Grand Theft Auto San Andreas.

What about everyone else ?

I bought the zombie game 'Dead Rising' a little while back and I am still hooked on it but I have also been playing Bioshock, Gears of War and Burnout Paradise for the Xbox 360.

i bought a 360 a few months ago thinking i'd largely ignore it and i did for a few months but i made the mistake of buying civilization: revolutions and now i'm playing it constantly. i have frickin dreams about it. my hygiene is starting to suffer. i got a victory on emperor level!

people who have played the PC version seem to think the console version isn't as good. but they a game in a PC version can take 40 hours! the three or fours that a game takes on the xbox is bad enough.

i think generally playing a PC game and then switching to console or vice versa is generally a bad idea, sorta like seeing the movie after you read the book. i learned madden 08 on PC, frinstance, and then madden 09 on xbob pissed me off because they changed all the controls around.

anyway, civ rev. it's cool.

it's 2054 and a winner is usually clear by this point in the game. the effin' yanks are pretty far along toward a cultural victory. it's neck and neck, people. neck and neck.

the mongols are focusing on an air attack. i'm making them chase my fighters instead of fighting them. we'll see if it works. if he switches to a sea-based offensive, i'm going to have to switch gears pretty fast. i'm on two land masses and i have no boats. :o

i dont know why the mongols even care, they're out. the french are still in the running. and they're attacking in the right places too, the mongols keep falling for simple ruses.

one fuel, one life support, and... hang on, let me check...

one fuel, one life support, one habitation, one propulsion in production. wait, i should replace the life support with propulsion.

i'm so glad i'm having this conversation with myself.

I'm so glad you're maintaining your ability to communicate. It might come in useful when you're forced to return to society.

chinese go monarchy. i think they're trying for a cultural win. the japanese are rocking in tech. i'm preparing to open a front with the indians in the south, ultimately working for an economic win.

i cant beat the japanese, their tech is too good. so i've changed tack and decided to open up a front against the indians. (or wait until they open one against me, because i know they will.) turns out i can bribe the indians to declare war against the japanese and that probably means i can bribe the japanese to go to war against the indians. the japanese would be a powerful ally.
