Finally finished this last night as part of Project:Backlog.  As many have said it's got a pretty face but otherwise the game is repetitive and dull.  At least the technical ground work is done so they can focus on content for the inevitable sequel.  And yeah what the hell was up with the fighting at the end.  That was not fun at all.

The free Xbox Arcade game for the downtime problems will be Undertow.

Cool I was thinking about buying that.

I don't see the benefit in achievements.  Before buying the xbox360 I thought achievements would let you download extra content, I was disappointed when I found out I misunderstood. 

I think Mass Effect is the first one to give you a benefit from them.  If you unlock something like Pistol Mastery it gives you the pistol skill no matter what class you choose in later playthroughs.

Didn't Dead Rising give you some in-game benefit for unlocking achievements, or am I remembering it wrong?

dont think so.  i think you just 'leveled up' as the game progressed.

I think what you might remember is that you could start over from Day 1 with your already leveled character from any point in the game.

Due to the Rock Band bundle being completely sold out in Canada and not available for the foreseeable future, I am planning to trade is some games I don't play anymore to EB to get the stand-alone version of Rock Band for about $40. I really like the song list and am quite bored of playing the same songs from GHII over and over again.

I know the drums are supposed to be awesome, but is the game worth it for the guitar-only portions as well? Also, I'm assuming they'll release stand-alone drums in the future anyways.


I am in the same boat (well, I can get rock band at  several places, I am just cheap), so i was thinking of just choosing one instrument. Unfortunately, they aren't going to be out until the first week of march, and EACH is going to retail, without the game, for a rumored 79.99 US. Thats insane. If I actually decide I want it, I will just buy the whole thing.

$80 each!!??!?!?!?  That's insane.  I was going to get the drums, but if they're that much then F that.

Yeah, I'm gonna go ahead and create a U.K account. I want to play the demo so badly!

Any world on a U.S release for the demo 'cause... you know... I don't wanna get my U.S account banned or something.

Apparently not for a bit due to an exclusive deal with some magazine. Lameness.

Gears of War gets bumped back to 2009 and Halo Wars steps in as the big November 360 release.

I predict that if Halo Wars is the big November release, Microsoft will have a lousy Christmas.

+1 to that

Anyone watch this tonight?

So far it's pretty bad acting.

Well there's a bunch of stuff taken directly from the movies.  The acting is pretty bad throughout.  Sarah Connor is played by the Queen from 300.  For a second it seemed like they were trying to hint at a love connection with the Terminator o_0

I heard so many good things about this but I watched it last night and didn't like it at all.  I figure if there were not two big name actors in this one, no one would have even blinked at it.  I thought that it was just too unbelievable.  Bale did a fine job, but I thought Russell Crowe has been much better in his other films.  2 stars on Netflix rating for me.
