    Just started the AOL beta test for XBL.
    So please help me!

    What games should i be buying?
    And an idiots guide to joining a game would be a great help.

    Do you meet up at a certain time etc?

    Any other tips would be gratefully received:smashin:

    I'd say get RTCW or MM3, RTCW is the best shooter on live IMHO.
    MM3 is a right laugh online & is well worth a look.

    Now friends, add some tags off this forum & we'll show you the ropes.
    Once you have people on your friends list you can join their games from your list.

    Most of the people on my list start to get on live around 7:30pm.
    Welcome to the world of live & enjoy the best thing to hit the console market ever.

    Add my tag & i'll be more than happy to show you around wolfy if you buy it.

    Yep Welcome to Live.
    It's a good laugh with the people from the forum.
    I would recommend Soldier of Frotune 2, just because it is SO funny on live. The graphics aren't much cop, but still fun to play.

    Wolfy is good but will take a while to get into.
    A lot of people play Ghost Recon, but you may want to hold on until Ghost Recon Island Thunder is out next month.
    As you can see the games I have listed are shooters. I don't own any driving games, so I cannot comment.

    There are going to be loads of good games coming soon, so better start saving. :smashin:

    The new Live Aware function sounds pretty scary to modded XBox owners. It automatically signs you into Live when you load up the game :eek:

    Have to be very careful about where the on/off switch is set.

    hey fulabeer,

    So is AOL now doing XBOX LIVE then??

    If so then their accounts and customer care department don't have a clue!

    I have been with AOL since about 1997 and just cancelled with them to get broadband (gone with BT) so I can get Xbox Live.

    Luckily my work offered to pay for the broadband (this working from home lark is great), so I thought if I was gonna have it then may aswell get Xbox Live!

    When I spoke to AOL a couple of weeks ago I asked whether they were considering supporting Xbox Live and their answer was a resounding NO. Anyway it's their loss.

    The Live! games I have are:
    Midtown Madness 3
    Unreal Tournament
    Ghost Recon

    Not had much time to play any of these properly yet (other than MM3).

    By the way my gamer tag is "Sheks", might see some of you guys on there then?

    I'm beta testing the Xbox Live for AOL.
    The test started Yesterday.
    I had to switch on "Internet sharing" for network connection 2.
    The only problem i had was due to the "Zone Alarm" fire wall i use.
    Once i switched it off, the Xbox connected straight away.
    I will configure Zone Alarm to allow Xbox to connect later etc.

    I'm new to Xbox games having finally getting around to setting it up. (although i've owned the Xbox for over 6 months!)

    I was going to set it up in my cinema room, but realised that it would get more use in the living room.

    I have it setup on a Panasonic 42" plasma, with the Dolby Digital 5.1 output sent a Sony Davs 880 receiver etc.

    I look forward to the online banter through the headset!:devil:

    Are we definitely getting this the same time as the States then?
    Wouldn't be surprised if we have to wait :rolleyes:

    fulabeer,
    Try putting Zone Alarm on medium for local / network and it should work fine with ICS.
