Gears Of War Community Playdate With The XCASTOnline Community…

January 10, 2009

I happened to score a copy of Gears Of War 2 from Frank Romano and the XCASTOnline community.  These fine folks also do a podcast, and are planning on having an XBOX Community Play Date for Gears Of War 2 on January 18, 2009 online.

Please let Frank know you saw this over here on my blog, and try to get to play with these folks.  I’m sure you will have a blast playing online with these fine folks over at the XCASTOnline community.


Community Gaming Nights on XBOX Live…

January 8, 2009

tmgI had the privilege of playing Rock Band 2 on one of the Community Gamer Nights with Mrs. LeftyBrown from the Married Gamers.

I had a blast.  These folks that are part of this community are very friendly and come highly recommended to play with online if you do not want any of the B.S. that normally goes on while playing on XBOX LIVE.

Chris and Kelly Brown run a website/podcast about gaming.  Check them out when you get a chance, and let them know that you heard about their site from SKirkham1967A.

Lego Star Wars – The Complete Saga

January 2, 2009

legosagaI received Lego Star Wars – The Complete Saga for Christmas along with a few other games (to be reviewed later on this blog).

My wife and I have been playing a lot of co-op in this game and are thoroughly enjoying it.

If you have played any of the Lego series of games, you will enjoy this one too.

The game features scenes from all 6 of the movies, and you will play it just like the movies.

One of the things to note is sometimes you will play from a 3D game to a TOP DOWN look, depending on the scene you are in.  The cut scenes can be very funny at times.  All the Lego games seem to incorporate a bit of humor in the cut scenes.

After a while you can unlock Indiana Jones as a playable character.  This was a pre-cursor to announce the 2008 release of Lego Indiana Jones.

I would highly recommend you learn all the things each character can do before you go into FREE PLAY mode.  That way you can quickly switch between characters to get to those places certain characters will just not reach.

This game came out in 2007.  You can probably find a good deal on used copies or even inexpensive new copies too.  Overall I would give this game a rating of 8 out of 10.

Happy New Year 2009!

January 1, 2009

New YearHappy New Year to all you gamers!  I for one am going to make a resolution to be on XBOX LIVE at least 2 times a week this year.  There were many times I did not even make it for the week in 2008!

Another Resolution I am going to make is to play more with friends online besides doing all the single player campaign modes.

I would love to hear what resolutions you may have for 2009.  Good luck in keeping them too!

Welcome to XBOX 360 Stuff!

I have been an XBOX 360 gamer for almost three years now, and have listened to several XBOX 360 podcasts, and read many XBOX 360 community websites.

Some time back in 2008 I decided to make the jump and get into this all myself too.

My goal with this site is to bring you a place to get XBOX 360 news, articles, and maybe even win some cool swag every now and then!  I’d eventually like to get a podcast going too.

We’ll have to see where the site goes, and how much time I can devote to it.

I hope you stop back often, and tell your friends too.
