Hey gang!

Well, just celebrated my 35th, and apparently everyone I know is an XBox fan. Lucky me!

Got a wireless Xbox adapter. Got LIVE (w/MechAssault). Got Rainbow Six 3 and Midway Arcade Treasures. (My wife also got D&D Heros...her b-day is on the 28th.)

So, I just had to yell my excitment to everyone! Posted Image

Man, is Rainbow 6 ever amazing! I thought the single-player with voice-command was cool... till I played a quick co-op game on Live. Man...

Then sitting there playing "Defender" and thinking... my... we've come a long way in the past 15-20 years.

Now I just gotta create one of those gamertag sigs... Posted Image EDIT: Just did. Posted Image

WOOOHOOOOO!!!

Who's up fer some Rainbox action? Posted Image

Actually, I asked my wife if I could have my mid-life crisis now, or if I had to wait. Posted Image

Congrats Tony!

In a month I will enter the realm of the thirty-somethings. I will console myself by loading up on videogames and pretending that I'm still twenty-something. Posted Image

Nice. Posted Image My wife bought my Xbox for me for the Christmas just after launch. For what she paid you could now get an Xbox (with Controller S), Knights of the Old Republic, MechAssault, an Xbox Live kit, and another 2-4 games (depending on the release). The constant march of technology.

I dropped like $400 plus on my XBox buying spree. It was right after the price drop a few months after the system had been out and got four games for it on my "day one" - Gunvalkyrie, DOA3, Rallisport and Jet Grind Radio Future. It was like Xmas, in spring...ahhh memories. Only now I feel like a dork because all those games are dirt cheap now (Gunvalkyrie $7.50 or 8.50 new at Target, ARGH) and well, it just makes ya feel like a putz. But then again I've been enjoying my system for a LONG time now... its worth it. No online stuffz for me though.. I just don't get the whole console online thing.

I just rented RS3 and been trying to get thru the single player levels. I tried Live but I can't seem to get some of the controls phat down. I don't have the manual for the game and was wondering if there is a site I can pan thru it. A partcular one is how to switch teams on Live.

Eric, I believe you just hit 'Y' while in the lobby between rounds to switch teams.

Speaking of learning how to make a gamertag sig... can you tell me how to do it...? I've been wanting to do it myself.
