Untill we get the 'Games' prefix added to the reviews I thought anyone with any game news or reviews could post on this Thread.

X-BOX 360 PRICE CUT.

Anybody thinking of buying an X-BOX 360 should wait a while as another price drop is due.
I was told by a friend who's senior manager of a leading gaming store of the forthcoming pricedrop, and this was confirmed when Woolworth let the 'cat outta the bag' by printing it in their Christmas catalouge.
The price dop is 30 pounds off each 360 model , which will mean the cheapest X 360 package will now start at 129 pounds.
MS have confirmed the price drop to 1 of the internet gaming sites but have yet to announce it publicly .
The price drop to due on the run up to Christmas.

My fav games.

Im currently using PS3 only console ways as my 360 'Red Ringed' and I never replaced it, though with this price drop I can see another X360 heading my way soon.

Well every year I update my EA Sports range ( NFL, NBA, NHL, FIFA, Tigerwoods, Nascar ) and Need for Speed. Plus this year EA are releasing the NCAA college football (US) and basket ball in the UK.
I recon Madden NFL is my fav, im playing Madden NFL 09 at the mo, as well as TNA Wrestling , Skate and MX vs ATV as im a big race fan.

I mainly buy US sports and Racing games plus the odd FFS.

i also use PSP though I play mainly Xtreme sports and Wrestling on it.

I HATE Puzzle games or games with a big puzzle eliment in the gameplay, like Tomb Raider, and I also HATE Platformers.

How about you mate, what do you like.?

Come to think of it, how many Gamers we got here and what are you playing.?

I only play PC games on occasions. Because I prefer to run Win 98 I mainly stick to the older (and much more entertaining) classic games. Age Of Empires, Tomb Raider, the classic Carmageddon, Quake and Resident Evil etc.

Because Win 98 is easy for DOS games I've also got Doom (and sequels), the hilarious Duke Nukem, Wolfenstein 3D, Alone In The Dark, and over 200 original arcade games built in to the MAME 32 emulator. Hours of fun.

I had Wolfenstein 3D on the Atari Jaguar, its a classic game.

Have you ever played a game called Quarantine , Vince.?( Forgive spelling)
I had it on the 3DO in the 90's and its like Doom in a Taxi. Brilliant game. It was a PC game ported over to 3DO.

The really old skool platformers and puzzlers hold up really well and I still play the likes of 'New Zealand Story', 'Bubble Bobble' and 'Rainbow Islands' on my PSP. Alot of the other games I loved as a kid, such as 'Chase HQ' and 'Operation Wolf' haven't held up at all, so retro games are a bit of a minefield, in terms of quality.

Games for the latest generation of consoles are so much more involved; I'm lovonmg 'GTA IV' on the PS3; it's such a great game. Loved 'Uncharted: Drake's Fortune' and although it was brief and not particularly inovative, I quite enjoyed 'Stranglehold'.

OMG! I LUV DOS games!!!!!!! I really luv that old retro 80's feel - i wish i couldve been there! The games you mentioned are brilliant too. Did you know you can download tones of DOS games of the internet for free and completly legally mate? They're really good - I play them on MS-DOS as it wont work on the comp unless I download that

Besides those games, I'd say my fav are, "Dead Rising" (AMAZING!), "Resident Evil 4", "GTA", "Timespliters 3", and ALL "Burnout" games!

They're all great games Vincenzo, Duke Nukem will always be one of my favourites, I used to love playing that as a kid, I really liked the later ones for playstation aswell like Time to Kill and Land of the Babes. Anyone remember a series of DOS games called Commander Keen? I recently downloaded them onto my PC as it's another childhood favourite.

Recently i've been playing retro games on my PS2 as I bought a few of those Mega Drive and Acade classics discs featuring stuff like Final Fight, Streets of Rage, Street Fighter 2 and Sonic the Hedgehog and stuff. The original Mortal Kombat games were always favourites of mine too.

Speaking of Burnout, theres a new download available from today that gives you 2 motorbikes, Night to day cycle, Rain, 35 extra races and 70 events, all for free.

I had a Atari Jaguar and a 3DO when I started Gaming seriously . Two great underratted consoles.
