    In an attempt to get a list of like-minded players, rather than twelve year old yanks, I've sent a bunch of friend requests to AVForums people this afternoon. Just to let you know that this is me, rather than just a random person!

    Having read threads on here I've invested in GRIT, so as soon as I get some practice, I'll see you online.

    Best,

    Dave

    I had a bit of a blitz yesterday morning, and bunged in all the names on the gamertag thread. I am now officially annoyed at the fact that Xbox doesn't have a keyboard. Come on Bill, sort it out. Or at least give us a qwerty option on the text input screens.

    On a vaguely related note, is there a site for logging gamertags etc?

    There is one at http://www.gamertagdatabase.com That allows you leave feedback for the people or your buddies you play against. I think the site is down for a while though.

    Ta. Down at the mo, but I'll keep an eye on it.

    Almost time to get home and work out the controls for Ghost Recon, so that I can get online and get mullered later!

    Ah, another lamb to the slaughter.

    I've now discovered a problem with XBL. You buy a new game to play on Live, but then get distracted by the one player game, to the exclusion of the online play! This has happened to me with both GRIT and now RTCW. I've even wasted a few hours dragging myself up the Moto GP stats, so that I'm now semi-respectably in the top 20,000, as opposed to 67,000 ish! And I've still got to play the three new Splinter Cell levels, that are languishing on the HD.

    As if this wasn't enough, I'm still in the middle of games of KOTOR and Eternal Darkness. I've already taken all my holiday days, and spent them playing video games, so I've only got weekends and evenings left.

    I guess this is partly an explanation as to why I haven't joined any online games yet, and partly a rant. Rant mostly, I suppose! Anyway, I promise I'll be online soon.

    Hey guys, would anyone mind if Dave shared the XBL friends list with me. I too just played a dogfight on CS and rather fed up (already) of the Yank flyboys. Thanks.

    My tag is below so love to be included in some online sessions :)

    Currently have Crimson Skies and Rainbow Six 3. Will probably get Top Spin, GRIT and MotoGP2 soon.

    I'm sure most of the lads would be happy to have you on their friends list.
    However a lot of the guys off here are getting rid of Crimson today for rainbow 6.
    Stick me on your list if you like, and we'll get together early next week for a bloodbath.

    No probs. Got R63 as well just not played it yet so will be cr*p. Look forward to it.

    I'm guessing many of you buy a game from Game, play it for 10 days then move on to the next one. Is this the way to go with XBL games?

    Messiah,

    Just to warn you, unless you can fly around the XBox input screens, it'll take you an hour or so to bung all the names in.

    I'm now Rainbow 6ed up, so maybe catch ya tonight!

    OK Matt. Will do. Just had a couple of dog fights on CS and building up the courage to lose a few evenings on R63 :)

    I've been through a couple of the recent posts and have made a note of most of the Gamtertags on here.

    I'll be adding you all in over the next few days so don't be suprised when you see Mujja popup.

    I'm playing MotoGP/GP2 mostly, bought Top Spin yesterday and will be getting TOCA & CS next.

    Not too sure about R36 or GRIT. I've tried to play FPS using the xbox controller but am to used to using a keyb/mouse combo.
