Xbox 360 Partying

Holding a controller, pressing a few buttons and watch the screen change is much more fun than it seems.

Especially when you're playing on an Xbox 360.

The shear joy of pure high definition graphics, mixed with surround system sound and mind boggling tactics - that's what makes the 360 a work of art.

Of course, since I don't have a 360 yet, I went off to my friend to pay off some of the addiction.

To start off with, is the game Rainbow Six Vegas 2.

Not only does this game take SWAT teams to the highest level, but it also combines team tactics with leader commandment to get through the game.

Not only will you have to pick the right assault and sniper weapons to do the job right, but you'll have to work correctly on the field, be it taking cover to assigning teammates targets and even choosing the right door to charge in to, to complete the level.

Another less action packed, but adventure like game, is Lost: Via Domus.

Although I did not see much of this game, but I sure did like it from my first play. You take on the role of Elliot, a man with amnesia from the airplane crash, trying to regain his memories, and in turn, discover the secret of the island.

Along with his compass, and the message to the way home, Via Domus, you must take along riddles, puzzles, and maps to complete the levels of this game, based on the television series. A great game for the adventure fanatics.

So, now that I've shared my piece of gaming, care to share yours?


  1. Ah, its a good thing you brought up the subject. I actually tried Halo 3 and I wasn't impressed. Although the graphics and animation are great, the gameplay, story and AI are not as good.

    Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon were one of the games that you really think the enemy is a real person, as they hide, take cover, command their friends and shout etc just like you would do.

  2. Sounds like a lot of fun. I am sure if i bought one, or PS3 i will get addicted and start missing work.
