The Xbox 360 Thread

Trials Evolution is soooo good. I unlocked the extreme levels last night and completed the first 3. So tough, but fun. I had well over 100 faults in one of them. LOL. The progression in the game is better than in Trials HD. It eases you into it and does a pretty good job of explaining key techniques for clearing obstacles. The only track I really didn't like much was the super duper uber long Gigatrack. That one was just *way* too long. It felt like it was never going to end.

I also finally tried the skill games last night. I really didn't care for the rolling ball one much, but liked most of the others. I especially liked the running out of gas, stuck throttle and no leaning ones.

@backtothis - Aww, but thanks anyways.
Haha no problem! I'm actually tempted to do the same and upgrade my 360 Elite.

The Slim is a nice upgrade from the older style Xbox, but note that if you currently have a "Jasper" 360, the Slim 360 is not any quieter at all, except when playing from a disc (if game isn't installed). So if you don't install games it's quieter, but otherwise not. I was a little disappointed in that, but otherwise it has some nice improvements.

I could truthfully care less haha. Anything is an improvement over what I have to deal with right now. If I accidentally close the disk tray without a game in it I have to bang on the top at least 3-4 times because the disk tray gets jammed. It's weird, I don't understand why it prevents jamming when a disk is in but it does!

That's a different matter altogether. LOL.

Has anyone tried out Minecraft? Just remembered it's out already on XBLA!

Edit: My bad, looks like the release date is the 9th. No wonder the internet hasn't been exploding on the topic yet.

Anyone join any of the 500x lobbies on Battlefield 3?


They last FOREVER! (and they are really, really fun)

Favorite app of all time - Dungeon Raid

My kids are going to buy Minecraft 360 on Wednesday. They are excited! I've never gotten into it myself, but with 4 player splitscreen I'll certainly play it with them and maybe I'll get hooked.

Haha yea, part of the reason why I had a (renewed) interest in getting an Xbox was to play MC: XB360 Edition and Black Ops with my foreign friends. Sometimes we play on the PC, but she doesn't have a good PC.
