    Hi all,
    Just got x-box live , is anyone willing to show me the ropes so to speak? I've got the x-box starter pack and Midtown Madness 3, and my gamertag is zAndy1 so if anyone sees me please add me ok! It's all a bit daunting at the moment!

    Cheers,
    Andy.

    Sof2 top game how can you avoid this one even the rctw clan play this now gaming is very much the same as rctw as it uses the same game engine. :lesson:

    Hire it first or buy it from game if you dont like it use the game exchange option :smashin:

    I bet you will end up like the rest of the people on here that s having it large most nights on sof2:clap: :clap:


    you life will never bee the same

    Wolfy is graphically superior. But playing sof2 with the guys of here realy makes the game. This game is all about having a laugh.
    Maybe it's just us, because the guys are all nutters :smashin:

    As the guys say give SOF2 a try you might like it :)
    I would'nt touch it at first but it's not bad, i still think wolfy is much better but each to their own i guess.
    Obi is plain wrong on it's more fun than wolfy (maybe because he owns all on sof2 eh?) ;)

    I didn't actually say it's more fun than Wolfy. I said sof2 was made good cos of all the nutters off the forum. Yes nutters, you know who you are :smashin:

    Cheers for the compliment Killa, I had to be half decent on 1 game, cos I suck at all the rest :D

    I take it you havent met a yank called mafiaman(numbers? not sure, cant remember) - utter nutter me, Del and Chad had him join one of our sof2 games - jesus this guy was really really weird.
    Andy
    add me to your friends i'm always on (i never go outside ;) )
    I play Sof 2 - superb game just so much fun, Ghost recon great game. Plus will be getting Ghost recon Island thunder next week.
    Dont buy Unreal tourny unless you can get it for under £20 as its due to go into the Classics(budget £20) range.

    If you knew that guys full tag i'd add him so he could chat to sharon ;)

    Unreal with all your pals is awesome, on a par with wolfy i'd even go as far as to say better :eek:
    Also looking forward to G.R.I.T should be a right laugh:clap:

    Cheers for all the replies chaps, I've got Unreal Tourny today, got it for £20 so figured I might as well give it a chance. Will probably be on later but my mate is coming round to see what all the fuss is about so might be kinda quiet , he'll wanna have a listen cos the banter is half the fun! Had a bloody right laff on Midtown Madness last night playing capture the gold, fantastic!

    Cheers
    Andy.

    Hi Guys,

    I am soon to get Xbox live and will also need a leg up. Mostly I have been on the xboxinsanity.co.uk boards looking for help on this.

    Anyone who doesn't mind playing with a girl and doesn't mind if I kick their ass remember the name Sheena.

    Your both welcome to add my tag.
    But beware of some of the guys of this forum, they are just mental.:smashin:

    Sheena if your getting XBL in the next week or so, then our game then will probably be Ghost Recon Island Thunder, but at the moment you can normally find us playing SOF2 or RTCW. Most on SOF2 though. :hiya:

    I got SOF2 today so should be on there later, or maybe I'll practise on single player until I have a bit of a clue what I'm doing!

    Cheers,
    Andy.

    Dont bother with the single player game it really is very dull - the online is quite diferent.
    One tip before you go online is to set up your voice option....
    You need to go into audio options and choose voice settings and switch the toggle switch on. To talk you press the white button once and it lights up the walkie talkie at the bottom left of the screen (online). When you join an online game just press start and go to walkie talkie channels and choose a channel - channels 9-12 are open channels so either team can be on them.
    You can also switch the walkie talkie off in game (press white button again) so you can talk to people near by who arent on your channel plus slag off the bloke you have just killed :devil:
    Hope all this makes sense ?? see you online soon
    :smashin:

    Hi folks,

    I'm also about to join in the "Live" experience, my activation date is next Tuesday (the 2nd) and I've got G.R.I.T on pre-order at play.com... at £15 it must be a steal :D

    I'll post back with my gamertag when I get it and will quite happily act as target practice for you lot for a while till I get the hang of things :suicide:

    Till then...

    Regards,
    Iain.

    Thanks for the tips, I'll jump in at the deep end then, had a go on the single player last night but only for an hour or so. Won't be on tonight (wife has just come off a week on call so it's pamper her night tonight) but will probably see you on there over the weekend sometime.

    Cheers,
    Andy.
