    OK, so I'm considering (very heavily) going out and buying an X-Box Live Starter Kit, a wireless adapter (we have a wireless network), and a game to use. The question is, what game? I'm considering Counter Strike, Rainbow Six 3, or Return to Castle Wolfenstein. Anyone wanna give me a suggestion?

    Rainbow 6. Because that's the only game I have out of your list.

    I've played Wolfenstein and didn't really like it. Counterstrike is a four year old game, but RB6 is cool. Even the single player is great. You command your troops using the headset that comes with live.

    Hopefully, I'll be joining the Live-enabled population of HTF next month. Spending my December birthday money on a Wireless adapter and a Live kit. [​IMG] I can hardly wait!

    I plan on getting all the games I mentioned above, but I'm trying to pick one for right now.

    I might just get 2 games and use the free 2 months thing that came with Prince of Persia. This way, I get 2 games for the same price as one game and the XBL kit, plus I have 2 months to buy the XBL kit (maybe for Christmas).

    For now go with Rainbow Six or Counterstrike as they are newer and most people are playing them

    If the single player campaign is of any interest to you Rainbow Six is probably a better bet.

    Well, when I do join up, Rainbox 6 is a must. The whole voice-command and communications through the headset sounds quite cool. [​IMG]

    ...and I can't believe Morgan is beating me to it. [​IMG]

    I got the wireless adapter, XBL kit, and Return to Castle Wolfenstein (it was the only game Circuit City had, which is where I got the adapter; I got the XBL kit at Wal-Mart). Cost me about $200, but honestly, I got 2 games (MechAssault comes free) and the only service plus a nifty gadget or two (the adapter is so cool).

    My GamerTag is L11mbm (capital L).

    My GamerTag stands for several things:

    L11 is from Lord11, an old screenname from IRC chat (don't remember how I came up with it).

    MB is for MonkeyBoy, and old nickname from a friend of mine.

    The last M is for Mog, the Final Fantasy character (showed a pic of Mog to a friend and now she calls me Mog).

    Lord11MonkeyBoyMog = L11mbm
