    Hi Guys,

    Just a short note to let you know that my first afternoon of online gaming was great.

    Setting up was a doddle. Getting started with Live was hassle free.

    And live itself? Well I'm 26 and back when I was playing arcade games on the south coast aged 8 I never thought I'd see the day where I could play video games against someone who wasn't actually standing next to me (or sitting on one of those really high stools - moon patrol).

    So technically it's great. Being able to talk to other people is also very odd at first but gets suprisingly comfortable (after you come to realise that, as in life, some people are just dickheads).

    Mechwarrior is currently my favourite (although the demo is repetitive). I have RTCW and that has so far been quite tough to get into. I think because it's objective based and I haven't spent enough time with it. I'm used to senseless blasting!

    Ben / AbsintheMofo

    Wolfy will take a while to get into. I'm only just getting into it and been playing on and off for about a month.
    If you get online with some of the guys off the forums we will show you around.

    We can have an avforum online fishing clan. Spikey can be Captain Bagger. Liverpool can grenade the fish. Beng is in charge of the rods, I'll be incharge of the bait. :)

    I can see this forum is full of boy racers!

    I've never been much of a racer myself but the motoGP demo on live is very cool. Any of you still play that or have you all moved on to bigger and better things?

    I played moto alot at one point & had a big time battle with someone on here.
    we got to around 900 at one point with some good times.
    Very good game but i've moved on to the awesome MM3.

    Your guess is as good as mine :confused:
    Why don't you start a thread to see who wants to play what time ect:
    That way it'll make it easy to get one set up.
