My wallet is going to lose a lot of weight this week, between the DVD's and the games coming out. I've got to make a couple of decisions, and some of your input will help. Ghost Recon, Unreal Championship, Mech Assault, and Splinter Cell all come out right around the same time. I will definitely be picking up Splinter Cell, no question. How many of y'all will be getting Unreal Championship? I've got UT2K3, and I love it, but I think playing over XBL will be even better, because of the voice communication and the 5.1 sound - even though I've got 4.1 surround in my computer room. Playing Bombing Run and CTF with you guys online should be friggin' sweet! I know that alot of us are also interested in Ghost Recon. Does anyone know if there is a SOCOM-like 3rd person perspective that you can play from? All the screens I've seen have the 1st person perspective with no on-screen gun. If I play 1st person, I vastly prefer to see my gun onscreen. However, I've heard great things about the game, so I'm pretty sure it will be good regardless. Finally, as far as XBL is concerned, I'm really interested in Mech Assault. I just don't know how I could possibly play all these at once. I'm wanting to ask for at least one of the above games for Christmas. Who's getting what? On a sad note, I think I'll be ditching my copy of SOCOM this weekend. It hurts me to say it, but the Sony Online experience sucks compared to XBL. Some nights on SOCOM I got dropped a dozen times. I had a blast playing with some of you (mostly getting killed), but I'm gonna be moving on to some better things with XBL games. I hope to be killed by some of you in the very near future.
