    Sorry to sound like a fan-boy, but I just rented Halo for my new XBox last night, and HOLY F*CKING SH*T! Wow! I loved every aspect of it...but the one that had me going was the sound! The realtime DD-encoding really shines through...so well, in fact, I actually used the sounds to help locate enemies!

    Anyways, I'm in awe and was wondering what other games I should rent that uses the DD encoder as well. I can't believe it took a game to really make me appreciate my NHT's.

    Almost every X-box game uses DD 5.1 to varying degrees. I have found Max Payne, Genma Onimusha, Jet Set Radio Future, and Rallisport make really good use of the DD format. You may want to give one of those a try.

    Thanks...I've been wanting to try Max Payne for the PC, but DD sounds better, so I'll give it a try on the Xbox.

    Try Spiderman which has full time DD 5.1 sound unlike Halo which only sporadically uses the center channel.

    Actually, my friend and I stayed up until 4am last night playing Halo and are now 3/4 of the way done. I agree, the story is actually half-decent...quite surprising.

    Yes, yes I will get Halo, of course! Whilst the price reduction is effective here as of the 26th, I will be holding out a week or so longer til my birthday hits on May 14th. So hey check this out:

    May 14th: My birthday, X-Box purchase, some DVDs

    May 16th: Star Wars Episode 2

    May 28th: Harry Potter DVD

    Oh how May will be a good month!

    18, though I wouldn't say it's /strictly/ enforced. Certainly nowhere near as 'tough' as parts of the US.

    Don't feel bad Dave. On the 21st of this month, I get to kiss half of "the 30's" goodbye.
    35 years old...damn. [​IMG]
    Considering how fast the 20's dried up...it's just a burp away before I'm *choke* 40. [​IMG]

    Yes legal drinking age is 18 here. I don't actually like Alcohol much at all frankly. Plain old water drinker myself... I share a birthday with George Lucas y'know. [​IMG]
