. . . dispose of dead bodies . . .

Didn't know you could do that. Do you bury them? Eat them? How do you get rid of a body?

I thought Blue Dragon was pretty good... worth getting if you can see it for $5...

Also Project Gotham 4 is great and has an update of Geometry wars on it. Things have come along way since Night Driver..

He's not into racers so its probably not for him, but I agree, PGR4 is a must have 360 title.

Its sad it got overlooked due to MS barely promoting it and releasing it at a time when there was a ton of titles like Halo 3 coming out. Almost was like they deliberately torpedoed it, possibly because of problems with Bizarre related to Activision acquiring them and taking them multiplatform.

If you ever want to acquire a racer and give it a go RT, I'd suggest this one. Its one of the highest quality racers on the platform and is extremely cheap. Plus you get Geometry Wars: Waves with it like he said.

Also everyone that hasn't already needs to go and purchase Outrun Online Arcade immediately. Best $10 I ever spent. The hd upgrade, achievements that made me do things that I never bothered to try in Outrun2/C2C, and active online community has made it a ton of fun.

Thanks, I'll check it out.

oddly i only really like the 360 games that got bad reviews:too human, two worlds, ninja blade, etc.

the only popular 360 game i like is mass effect.

If you liked Two Worlds, you should get Sacred 2. It's like a better version of that game.

I may be remembering wrong, I almost maxed the game out and haven't played it in two years, but when you look at someone, it shows what they got and one button takes a selected item, one button takes everything, and one button takes everything and removes the body (maybe you do eat them, you should get health for that right :P )

Thanks. I need to look closer at the options. I haven't seen that one.

On June 26, 2009, I got Civilization Revolution used for $22 and The Orange Box new for $19.

Half-Life 2: Episode One sure was shorter than I was expecting. Seemed to be mostly a bunch of busy work. I hope Half-Life 2: Episode Two is better.

Short? I don't recall that game being short especially compared to many other FPS. (Some can be beaten in like 6-8 hours)
I might have been thinking of all the episodes as one game though and I also go for all achievements which tends to make games last longer.
The expansions aren't any longer than the main game. In fact from what I recall they are shorter.
How long did it take you to play through the first part?

I didn't keep track, but I played for a while, got some sleep, played for a while, then I was on a train and got game credits. While I was playing, I thought, "OK, they're giving me this stupid busy work, but the cool stuff is coming, so just wait for it." The really cool stuff never came. I guess they saved it all for the next game which I'm playing right now.

I did Episode One is just 3-4 hours (Half-Life 2 took 15 hours according to my Xbox game save, with probably another hour accumulated from dying and reloading). So its pretty short for someone coming into it from HL2 like RandomTerrain is doing.

I hear Episode 2 is about twice as long as the first episode, but I've yet to get around to really playing too deeply into it.

Oh ok I understand now. Episode one isn't the full game. He was playing the 1st expansion not the game HL2 is that it?
Yeah 3-4 hours sounds about right.
The expansions are both pretty short from what I remember, but yes the second one was beefier than the first.

Yeah, I played HL2 on the old Xbox, so I went straight to Half-Life 2: Episode One. Now I'm playing Half-Life 2: Episode Two which already seems better. I'm moving along and not stuck in one place for too long (so far).

Half-Life 2: Episode Two was much better than Half-Life 2: Episode One. Except for a couple of places, you kept moving along and didn't feel like you were doing a bunch of busy work in one location for way too long. Half-Life 2: Episode One was like a side dish, but Half-Life 2: Episode Two was more like a full game.

A family member was going to buy Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection for me as an early Christmas present with their Best Buy card, but Best Buy never heard of the game, so they got me these games today instead:

Red Faction: Guerrilla      (New - November 11, 2009 - $40)

Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3       (New - November 11, 2009 - $10)
