Surprised this didn't exist already tbh, but I did a search and none of the three existing threads really seemed suitable to hijack.

So who here plays xbox live? This is the thread where we share gamertags and the like (and talk about xbox games obv).

I'm "melton mowbray", plz to add!

I dont have a gamertag, cos the xbox isnt mine, it is mr Puppy's. Maybe he'll let me get one so I can be laughed at for having no points and only 3 stars :(

Dead Rising is GRATE isn't it? I started ignoring the missions half way through in favour of old fashioned zombie bashing and Crazy Taxi style rescue missions, and am now quite near the end. Hopefully the second time around I'll have a little more patience and sense of time, so I can uncover the "true ending" or whatever they call it.

I'm also playing Dead or Alive 4, which makes me feel like I'm playing a fancy Dreamcast, and Call of Duty 2, which makes me feel scared and confused.

I also still only have 3 stars and one friend :(

melton mowbray's APOCALYPTO! (adr), Friday, 15 September 2006 10:34 (fourteen years ago) link

I almost never go on Xbox Live. I get sick of redneck children calling me a nigger jew faggot and I prefer multiplayer gaming on the PC.

Dead Rising has usurped RE4 as GAME OF THE MILLENIUM. I've been too busy to play lately but I got the true ending and am very, very frustrated with "overtime" mode.

adam (adam), Friday, 15 September 2006 12:43 (fourteen years ago) link

I'm Barthelme 1984 if anybody wants to play Call of Duty 2 (and 3 in a couple months). I'm obviously terrible at thinking of names.

like murderinging (modestmickey), Friday, 15 September 2006 18:16 (fourteen years ago) link

I watched my roomy go through Dead Rising. The overtime conclusion was kinda lame.

Mickey, I bought Call of Duty 2 the other day, so I'll add you after work tonight :)

I suppose I should get a gamertag before I cant get a name without a bajillion numbers after it, shouldnt I.

Trayce (trayce), Friday, 17 November 2006 04:20 (fourteen years ago) link

Trayce stoled my gaming partner :(

teh_kit (g-kit), Friday, 17 November 2006 10:48 (fourteen years ago) link

The popularity of UNO makes me feel less silly about the fact that the possible resurrection of good old 2-dimensional WORMS could be my killer app for XBLA.

Although frankly there's no room in our setup (or budget) for a 360, so thpbt.

Anyone see the trailer for mass effect? Shit looks bananas. Makes me glad I picked up an xbox for Gears of War.

My gamertag is Stupornaut (woo Sabbath) and I may be on later tonite for Gears of War, but since I just bought it I'll probably be doing singleplayer for a while.

my gamertag is feud

cutty (mcutt), Saturday, 18 November 2006 21:29 (fourteen years ago) link

I have a gamertag now - I'm trakky. It gave me a month's free live gold membership so I guess I can get pwned by someone at Uno. If I ever end up being online when everyone else is.

Log on, look me up, and laugh at my pathetic one-game 3-achievments stats :(

JimD, Monday, 28 May 2007 01:29 (thirteen years ago) link

Ditto. My gamertag is Shinefield (talk about unoriginal names). I'm playing Gears of War. Well, trying to play. Playing very poorly.

Mordechai Shinefield, Monday, 28 May 2007 01:33 (thirteen years ago) link

ahhhhhh a minefield of gamertags here, cool!

God. I can't stand playing non-ranked matches, and getting thrown out of the match in the middle (I guess because I'm not already friends with the host, or because I suck?). But the fact is, I'm only playing non-ranked matches because I suck in the first place.

I need: Some friendly ILXors to non-ranked Gears of War with me. Ideally, with some patience and who love to give helpful tips to people who stink at shooting games.

Mordechai Shinefield, Tuesday, 29 May 2007 09:51 (thirteen years ago) link

Is anybody on here planning to pick up Forza 2 this week? I'm very undecided.

It seems like it has been a while since there has been a really compelling release & things are looking kinda dull until fall, I guess. It's sad when the upcoming game you are most looking forward to is Discs of Tron...

Jeff LeVine, Tuesday, 29 May 2007 17:23 (thirteen years ago) link

yeah, I dunno; doubt it

and shinefield's sentiments seconded

czn, Tuesday, 29 May 2007 19:05 (thirteen years ago) link

But czn, you're already good at Gears!

What do those co-op modes on Rainbow Six Las Vegas play like? I've only been playing the sharpshooter stuff (a bit)? Sorry I didn't have time to join up the other day...

Jeff LeVine, Tuesday, 29 May 2007 19:28 (thirteen years ago) link

nah, it's cool; they're fun actually... the ppl seem a bit nicer and um co-operative... there's lots just on there to level up and ppl playing LVU campus over and over can be a bit boring... but the AI is pretty good on R6 and the difficulty realistic so the chatting and tactics is fun

I haven't played any of the other modes tbh

re:gears - I ain't so good really; I played for an hour and half yesterday and got like 5 kills total

czn, Tuesday, 29 May 2007 20:35 (thirteen years ago) link

anyone in town tonight?

czn, Thursday, 31 May 2007 16:07 (thirteen years ago) link

I got Command and Conquer yesterday, and am trying plow through the missions on Easy to get myself reacquainted with the genre. I'll still be shit, of course, because on XboxLive, it only takes about 6 hours after a game's release to have most of the other players to be total experts.

Gukbe, Friday, 1 June 2007 01:21 (thirteen years ago) link

I am good at Gears single player but i was absolutely rubbish at the multiplayer. Also my gold account ran out and i'm too poor to renew it right now.

Dy, Monday, 4 June 2007 00:53 (thirteen years ago) link

I friended back everyone who friended me. Now -- get on Gears so we can play!

Mordechai Shinefield, Monday, 4 June 2007 08:40 (thirteen years ago) link

sorry about that shinefield, I got your message - those guys can get a bit bullyish if they don't know you

will you be on tomorrow night? am getting (slowly) better at gears

you got no xbox live gold trials, dy?

czn, Monday, 4 June 2007 22:25 (thirteen years ago) link

It was ironic. I mowed down two people and got tossed immediately. :-P

Mordechai Shinefield, Monday, 4 June 2007 22:54 (thirteen years ago) link

Anybody played the new Pac-Man? Believe it or not, it's pretty unbelievably fun and cleverly-designed. I'm considering making it my first XBLA purchase.

antexit, Thursday, 7 June 2007 14:17 (thirteen years ago) link

My company has a borrowable Xbox 360... and only about 3 people borrow it, incl. me. So add "vsta01" to the friends lists, fools. I will have it for the long weekend on June 21-25!

Will M., Thursday, 7 June 2007 16:57 (thirteen years ago) link

Aw guys, I turned my 360 on last night for the first time in a while and got all your friend adds! We've gotta play!

melton mowbray, Friday, 8 June 2007 10:33 (thirteen years ago) link

Tag = BigGlim

I have been playing nothing but Shadowrun for the last week, it's grand.

I would play Gears, but I lent it to a middle-aged French man at work, who I can only imagine slips out of bed after his family is asleep to play it, hunched over a quiet TV and quietly cackling to himself as he shoots Locust. I should be able to retrieve after I can figure out how to beat General RAAM with my horribly broken command of the French language.

Matt D, Friday, 8 June 2007 12:38 (thirteen years ago) link

Your coworker's name is General RAAM? Why don't you just ask him for it back?

antexit, Friday, 8 June 2007 14:14 (thirteen years ago) link

i have no gold trials, i might connect it again next month for ilx'ing gears and for table tennis.

Dy, Friday, 8 June 2007 20:56 (thirteen years ago) link

durr, I can't write clearly. I mean, he's stuck on the last boss fight, and his English / my French is terrible, so communicating concepts like "kill the cloud of killer bats with exploding arrows from the torque bow so you can shoot RAAM in the head with the sniper rifle" is a bit of a challenge ;)

Matt D, Sunday, 10 June 2007 21:25 (thirteen years ago) link

here's a tip.
go to sears, look for the old xbox live 12 month bundles. they usually come with a headset and some even come with crimson skies. anyway, i bought one the other day for 10 months. and the code worked on my 360.

funny farm, Monday, 11 June 2007 04:53 (thirteen years ago) link

you bought one for 10 months?

Will M., Monday, 11 June 2007 14:38 (thirteen years ago) link

oh, sorry. that's a typo. it's 12 months.

funny farm, Sunday, 17 June 2007 03:31 (thirteen years ago) link

shit...where is my head. it's supposed to say, i bought one for 10 bucks. not months.

The new Pac Man game is just outstanding. If you like the original Pac Man/Mrs. Pac Man at all, get this thing.

What is the level of ilx xbox 360 multiplaying because the reason i gave up on my gold account in the first place was that almost anyone i played with were v. dickish.

Also Settlers of Catan multiplayer would be sensational.

Dy, Tuesday, 19 June 2007 18:20 (thirteen years ago) link

there is basically none ilx multiplayer tbh

mostly probably due to us/euro timezoning and the fact I only really play gears

czn, Tuesday, 19 June 2007 19:56 (thirteen years ago) link

ok then I'll just get the fiver then

still haven't played the first one (which I've had on disk for like three years now) so this is really just me indulging the hoarding that seems endemic to being a gamer today

just got an Xbox One and started using Live. I get a little weirded out when some of the younger players have convos with people in the background that unwittingly let me know way more about their lives than I ever wanted to. this one kid this morning was playing me on Madden and his grandpa and friends and family were watching and all I could do is feel self-conscious as to how many people were watching me lose.

I was playing some Russian guy at FIFA today and was 4-0 up at half time when I heard a kid who must have been about six or seven say "dad, why are you losing?". I felt so bad I let him score two in the second half.

OMG Dead Rising, the original
this fucking game
like, just incredible. so awfully bad in so many deliberate and terrible ways, so wonderfully nuts and delightful in others
i'm just in amazement here
(p.s. so hilarious that they followup the fake bitter hopeless ending with A SECOND HOPELESS ENDING, followed by Frank West's fate vaguely described on a text card)
(that's after the game turns into in MMO for like 4 hours)
(there's just.. so much. SO MUCH)

playing this guy at FIFA 15 today at which I'm pretty good. dude is literally screaming at somebody before the match even starts, during the warmup portion. and just keeps yelling at various points throughout the game, every pass that gets intercepted gets met with a "FUCCCCKKKKK OMG!" on the headset, only for him to drop a smug "yeah THAT'S how you do it" when he scored the equalizer (finished tied 1-1).

in the last ten minutes he's yelling at someone in the background "don't you dare touch it" and then this high pitched voice yells "GO DADDY!" at the end.

here I thought I was playing against a 14 year old angry kid that looks like Donkeylips but actually am playing the world's angriest father.

bizarro gazzara, Saturday, 2 May 2015 20:51 (five years ago) link

that was always the most depressing bit of headset chatter imo. i mean, dudes screaming racist or homophobic stuff at each other is endemic but tbh you do kind of get numb to it. but hearing people's family business or hearing someone yell "shut the fuck up" to their crying child, god, the worst.

yeah, it's depressing. it takes so much effort and time to find decent people to play with unfortunately

Nhex, Monday, 4 May 2015 16:04 (five years ago) link

i used the headset for multiplayer for about 10 minutes of call of duty or some other FPS back in the late aughts. that was the first and last time. it's a bummer because there are lots of games that would theoretically fun to play with a headset, communicating with people, maybe even cooperating. but man, people are the fucking worst, so there's a whole subset of games that i'll never play.

Karl Malone, Monday, 4 May 2015 16:07 (five years ago) link

i've had those times - spending good time on a pub server with decent human beings who enjoy the game is like finding a wormhole in space undiscovered by man - but honestly, looking back, i've wasted too much of my valuable life time hunting for those moments and people (and continue to do so with some games)

Nhex, Monday, 4 May 2015 16:20 (five years ago) link

for all the talk given to greater social features and online play in current generations games, this is still a fundamental(ly sad and human) problem

Nhex, Monday, 4 May 2015 16:21 (five years ago) link

I've had a bit of good luck lately. nobody has even used their headset but once in about the last 20 matches of FIFA I've played. I usually mute them on games like Titanfall or shooters because those people are insufferable.

This one idiot on Battlefield 4 kept saying "Toshiba, Mitsubishi, FUCK YOU!" over and over in a taunting voice, even though he got killed about ten times in two minutes.

Hammer Smashed Bagels, Monday, 4 May 2015 21:13 (five years ago) link

During the lock down I played some other stuff but since then I haven't even opened one of the games I bought during that time.
