Is the 360 all you've got for video game playing? No portable systems or a gaming PC?

Nah- I have a Wii / PS3 / PSP / iTouch / iPad and another 360 (Michael's) but the 360 is what I give the most love to slywink

Okay, not digging on the first game. The atmosphere is absolutely killer and the presentation is note perfect. But the entire game can be summed up in a single word: Fetch.

I don't get it. Fetch quests?

Big time.

While it is one huge FedEx game. The game is great! Give it time and it will grow on you - still one of my top 3 games.

Chalk me up as well for disappointment in the shotgun. The grenade launcher just isn't as effective as it should be either.

I jumped into MP recently and re-discovered just how much I suck at competitive Halo. If I was 15 and enjoyed calling everyone "gay fa****s", then maybe my skill would be increased somewhat. I'm definitely sticking to either Firefight or any other co-op stuff.

Friends Only communication option is precisely what the doctor ordered. Why do people still complain about this - it has been a feature since time immemorial.

It really irritates me the whining and complaining that I've witnessed online about Netflix Canada's selection, or lack of.  People don't seem to get the fact that if you don't support a service like this in it's infancy then it will never grow.
I signed up as soon as I could.  I've recently cancelled cable TV, so 8 bucks a month is the same as renting 2 movies.  As a horror fan, I was pleasantly surprised at the decent selection they have right out of the gate.  The documentary selection is equally impressive.

I'm going to give it 6 months to improve.  If it doesn't, at least I've supported it and given it a chance.. I suggest all do the same.

I am interested to see what Zip.ca has up their sleeves.

A lot of us are on capped bandwidth internet provider (Cogeco). I have no use for a service that only allows streaming because I won't be able to take advantage of it. So until someone can do a mail delivery service properly in Canada then I'll continue to whine and complain.

JayDee - you and I are in the same boat and I am not impacted (yet). We have 2 Xbox Live accounts and use them A LOT. I also do a fair amount of downloading  ninja (purely research projects) and have not noticed and extra charges yet.

If I spend my credits on armor does that impact my leveling up ability? IE - if I spend 10k on stuff does that reduce my credit progress to the next level by 10k thus taking me longer to move up?

Thoughts?

I still contend that my Halo record must be consistent with golf scores. If below par is good in golf than it is GREAT in Halo.

Played through the 3rd sniper recon mission of the campaign (heroic) and I'm enjoying it thus far. So far there isn't anything particularly unique that's standing out about it, it's a Halo game I was expecting to play. The textures and models do look a little sharper IMHO but I'm seeing some weird motion blurring in the cutscenes.

Nice to fight along with some regular squad mates this time. I've stood around and observed some of the firefights and they've been effective in dispatching enemies on their own. I was afraid they would stand around just being shot at and waiting for me to flank around to mop up. Cool to see some of the personalities of your fellow Spartans as well. Hard to make out what Kat is saying in her radio transmissions because of her accent.

Maybe it wasn't as apparent to me as now or it's more pronounced, but the elites are a PITA to take out. They move fast and are such bullet sponges. Throw in a group of them, some with jet packs, and it starts to get hairy. Haven't run into many new UNSC vehicles and weapons yet - hoping to see some nice toys later on.

Gamertag - RoboSim

Agreed on all points with Spigot here. I noticed frame rate choppiness about 2mins in and was thinking  what the heck?

Kat is hard to understand - it sounds like she is taking a dump when she talks  icon_smile

Elites - yes I am also having some challenges - I was on Heroic but had to bump down the challenge one level. I know I'm a wimp.

Played just past the sniper level with 'Chekov' last night and it is good to see that the same Halo formula that sold me back in 2001 still holds true today.

MP was challenging to say the least. I miss the COD left trigger zoom and because of it I am always tossing at least one grenade per match when I don't mean to. retard
I find that the DMR is not very powerful.
I am trying to get used to all the jumping and grenade spam.

I did like one match where it was all snipers though.

So far I am happy with my purchase - this will hold me over until HoH and BlackOps comes out - just like Owain mentioned.

i am glad that i went with a simultaneous dual-band router rather than one that is strictly N despite the cost though.

ABSOLUTELY.  Dual band is a must so you can still have G coverage and not murder your N speeds (and also extend your network a bit).

I picked up the Dlink DIR-825. It has the dual band.

Thinking of moving from standard G wireless to N. Has anyone 'upgraded' their older wireless gear and noticed significant speed increases? How about range? Does that also increase?

I gotta say that until now I was thinking that this edition of COD would be the same game-type set in a different era. I was looking forward to playing.

Now I can safely say that I AM REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO PLAYING.

New game types and options on how you play ie: combat training. Sold sold sold.

And I'm there!   Check our twitter feed as well.   

Great article Ron - thanks for posting. I do have one question if you don't mind (or perhaps someone else can answer) what is the deal with Combat Training? I have read and re-read the paragraph below and cannot figure it out?

The game looks pretty familiar until Dan leaps from a second story window in a new mode called “Combat Training”.   The game mode allows folks to bridge the game between offline multiplayer and online multiplayer.  Combat Training has a completely separate multiplayer perk, rank, and level system that is separate from the online component.  Treyarch realized that 30% of people have never played the franchise online, and this new mode is meant to fix those shenanigans.   This mode came about from a dummy training mode that the internal team created to bring an offline dummy called “Larry” to life in the game world.  This feature grew until it was a completely offline or cooperative multiplayer mode that will ship with the game.

What are all these ADS you guys are seeing? I see a few ads for things to download but my GAME LIBRARY is one click away (ok two - I click the xbox button then the game library). I seldom see ads on the dashboard and they're super easy to ignore.

You don't have the Spotlight bar appear first thing upon booting up?  Right now when I turn on my 360 I get audio and video telling me how great Halo Reach is, with assorted other things I don't want displayed to the right.  Sure, it's a short ways to navigate to what I want--my games--but imagine if you had to click past an ad screen every time you booted up a Windows machine.

There is an option somewhere if memory serves that you can configure as to what you see on bootup.

being on the Northern side of the border means that we don't get:

Netflix
Last FM

And most likely won't get:

ESPN (not that I care)
MSNBC (not that I care)

The 10 bucks is in no way a deal breaker - BUT it would be nice if they leveled the playing field ie: access to internet radio and Netflix.
