Assassin's Creed is supposed to be $40 via Fry's Electronics this week (according to a Steals and Deals post anyway). One reason why I'm picking it up.
Whoa really?

They all say so in the post. It's not being offered in today's Fry's ad, but something like that wouldn't show up until Wednesday's ad anyway. I'll let you know once Wednesday rolls around.

Wow that's awesome!

11244  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty 4 Impressions on: November 12, 2007, 03:54:01 PM
Ok I played just about all weekend and this is my favorite MP game for the 360 by far.  I got to level 22 or 23 and have unlocked some good weapons and some neat challenges.  I'm using mainly an M4 build with the zoom scope and it works well.  I am working on getting the zoom scope for the MP5 and need 3 more kills to get it.  I like how that gun is more powerful, but the range is nowhere near as good as the MP4.  A few more levels and I get a new assault rifle and I'm sure I'll go with that.  I tried the M60 but it was not to my liking.

What perks are you guys going with? 

I have pretty much settled in on 3x special grenades with flash, extra bullet dmg, and extra bullet penetration. 

Someone had mentioned earlier that the extra penetration was good to take and I like blasting away at people through walls.  Martyrdom was good too, I got a few kills that way.  I also hate dying when someone is in last stand, but I didn't like it much myself.  I tried the claymore perk but I didn't like how it equips the claymore when you plant them.  Also seems like friendlies can trigger them.  I also tried the UAV jammer, but I think this only works during UAV scans and not all the time, otherwise it would be too good.

ok, i must be missing something here...so a little help would be appreciated.

i'm trying to play mp for the first time, but i'm not finding how to find games.   when i try xbox live, all i get is deathmatch/team deathmatch (which i know is all i have until i unlock others).  however, there are no servers listed.   am i missing something?  how do i see a list of all available servers?

You only get those two game types to start with.  As you rank up, more game types become available.  You never see any servers to choose from.  You select a game type and then click find game, then it just puts you into a game lobby (or directly into a game).
11246  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Getting involved with the GT XBL community on: November 12, 2007, 03:47:24 PM
Hey all, I am wondering what's the best way to get involved with the GT XBL community.  I am a little apprehensive to start shooting people random friend invites on XBL. Are there a couple of ring leaders who routinely put games together that wouldn't mind a friend request?  Or do you all just invite everyone?  I've never played XBL with voice coms and I would like a good group of mature gamers to try with.  Any help for a noob is appreciated.

Thanks much!

Hey guys is XBL crashing?  Everytime I try and join XBL for some MP my game freezes.  3 times in a row now.

yeah it was just flaking out on me like 5 minutes ago

Hmm I got through a bit and my stats were wiped =\  I hope that's temporary.

Ok I played through a couple of SP missions and they were fun.  It's like being in a movie.  I felt that my team was doing too much though.  Esp on the intro mission.  Is that because I played on regular?

I played one MP match and it was awesome.  I got 10 kills, which was cool since I was worried about not being able to kill anything with no stat matching.  I found 3 different starter packs, so I don't understand why being stuck with the M16 sucks?  I took the pack with the MP5 and it seemed to be fully auto.  I shoot in bursts any way, so it didn't matter much.

I hope to get in some MP games with you guys.  I already like it more than Halo 3 MP.

I hear MS is banning people from XBL for playing early- they check the gamertag history.

They said that about Halo 3 and it turned out to be false.  However, why is it the customer's fault if they bought the game early?

I'll say that I like the set list in 3 much more than 2 as well.  I played 3 first though, so that might have something to do with it.  I like just about every song in 3.  There's a bunch in 2 that I had never even heard of.

I don't get how you can cheat in consoles?  I've had to deal with cheating on PCs forever online, but I didn't think the same things existed in the console world.

I believe there is something simple you can use, like some kind of sub-sonic thing, or else a squirrel repellent.

I once heard you can purchase something like fox musk, which causes the squirrels to stay far away.

Bravo, you guys don't have to go Rambo on them to get rid of them.

That's a little sketchy for a console you just bought.  I've had mine since August and it's locked up once I think.  If it was right after I got home with it though, I think I would return it for a new one, just in case.

How'd you get it for $10??

split the cost with my gaming group- as no one else was really in a hury to play it we pitched in 10 bucks a piece and it will be passed on to whoever wants it next.

Wow that's cool.  Damn all my friends not being gamers!  /shakes fist
