I really wish I had the freedom to give you an answer, because god knows I'd love to actually get an achievement for once in it

I'm looking at sometime this weekend though. When's good for you?

I don't play enough to commit to any ongoing game these days.

Bede: dunno mang, I'm trying to work it out myself. supposed to be making some time to catch up with a local DJ/producer and jam for a few hours to see what we come up with, and also trying to work out when I get to spend some time with the missus.

That said, it sounds like I'm in a position to be more flexible with it than you are. Name your time and I'll try to make it blud.

Too easy Dante. I had the perfect chance to play with you last night when I saw you jump online, but 2 minutes later I was in another argument, so it wouldn't have worked out anyway. I'm actually very free tonight if you're keen?

I'm not entirely sure on the logistics, but the servers being located in Canada makes it pretty difficult for us Aussies to have a serious go of it without lag. Being a goalie in EASHL is fucking PAINFUL. But I'd be very keen to play with you lads.

I get every NHL game each year. Don't think of it as a new game, think of it as a subscription service to get roster updates and annual new 'features'.

Also PREORDER THAT SHIT AT JB. You get booster DLC which will help immensely.

Everything points to it being dogshit, but sometimes these games come alive with another player. Might be worth a cheap purchase, dude!

Driver San Fran is SICK btw. The story is ridiculous, and the idea of "shifting" sounds retarded on paper, but - fuck me - it makes for an awesome game! I know for a fact that loads of ****s on here would love it and I heartily recommend it to fans of fast paced mission based driving games. Hand brake turning = <3

Just bought this machine and the Foxtel deal is a rip off. Pricing is over the top for BYO broadband and 360 live membership. This should be much less than the normal foxtel membership pricing program. People trying to do the right thing by paying for legal viewing services and then you get Rlaped by the corporate goons.

Not tied to anything yet. Set it up yesterday and did my research today but the pricing is atrocious for their cut down model.

Yeh I had it for a while for sports. The sport channel was ok, the rest of the basic package was dire. Stream quality was a bit shit too. I kept the On Demand option though.

Yep, did the first one as soon as it became available. Getting weapon upgrades as soon as I can afford them as well. Proving Grounds will be done asap to get 2nd, then come back and get 1st when I'm a higher level.

Single.

It doesn't matter though.

Game is extremely repetitive, suffers from a lack of different moves (maybe these might grow within the game?).
I've played over 2 hours now, do I think it's a pretty good gauge on the game overall. The funny thing is it reminds me of a higher quality Golden Axe.

It's a shame, as there are parts of the game that are okay, it's just the same strategy over and over again (with the same moves). You can change characters after levels - and I haven't. I've stuck with the Barbarian (cross between Aragon and Legolas).

Have found the graphics to be good at times and then dismal in others and the level design where a bush will stop you exploring and there's no jump button is annoying.

To be honest, I was hoping for the same type of coolness the two movie tie ins by EA were. Looks like I'll have to wait for the LEGO version...

Speaking of LEGO, picked up Batman 2. Pretty good game so far. Thought they did a great job with the first one, new story etc, and they've done it again. Haven't got to play as Superman yet, looking forward to that and the other characters.

And they talk! Was a bit surprising at first, but it helps with the story.

yea that would have been a game breaker for the original... not so much for a xboxlive arcade game. probably be brought in as dlc like all the best features in other games.

Yo people, anyone know the easiest way to get Netflix working on my xbox so i can watch it on my big TV?

I have a Netflix account and can watch it fine on several devices (my PC, ipad, Samsung Galaxy SII etc). I also have a subscription to a VPN provider (Hidemyass VPN) which i use to bypass the region restrictions. However, i cant seem to complete the last step to get it working on my xbox.

I followed guides online and managed to successfully download the Netflix app on my Xbox. However, whenever i try to connect it just stalls and nothing happens, i'm stuck on the Netflix start screen.

I'm guessing it might be something to do with my home network setup OR the VPN. The "main" PC in the house is connected via cat5 to a Netcomm router which in turn is connected to a Bigpond cable modem. My PC upstairs is connected to the internet using a Belkin wireless USB receiver which picks up my home Wifi.

I have tried doing a "Network Bridge" on my PC so that the Wifi internet connection and VPN can be shared onto the Xbox via a 15m Ethernet cable.i have (LOL). I have used the ethernet cable in the past to watch movies stored on my PC's HDD on my TV/Xbox and that works perfectly.

There must be an easier way to do this.

Is there a way to connect to the VPN "locally" on the Xbox? If i could do that, i could connect using any internet connection just how i do on my ipad, phone etc.


**EDIT** Before anyone asks, the network connection test on the Xbox is all fine and it connects to my network, the internet and Xbox Live.

**EDIT2** I'm an idiot. Would it be easier to just configure the VPN through my router so it does it automatically and i don't need any sort of software running to get the VPN working?

No knowledge on the topic, but I would assume your edit2 is the way to go assuming the router supports it. But then all your traffic will be going via VPN. Potential issues there? Will that mess with regular XBL use?

Dear film industry,

Look at the fucking hoops legit users have to jump through to pay for your product. You dickheads.

So, I think I'm gonna get Spec Ops: The Line. Totally not my usual sort of game but Hyper gave it a fucking ten and the narrative sounds compelling as fuck.

Dubai destroyed by a sandstorm. You go in there commanding two squad members to investigate. Splinter groups. CIA ops. So far so normal, but then you start getting forced to make fucked up moral choices. Your squad starts questioning shit. Your character starts losing it. One loading screen "tip" apparently said to the reviewer: This is all your fault.

Sounds like the perfect antidote to Modern Borefare's shoot fucking anything with no consequences approach to war.

Keen as fuck. Think I'll finish AC:B this weekend and grab next week
