I reached level 55 but don't know when or if I'll prestige, the assault rifle you unlock is pretty nice.
Is it things like dropping crates on people's heads again prestige or actually normal gameplay now?

I level up quick because I play lots of domination, and when I'm not on, my boy takes it over and plays lots of Search, FFA, and likes to grind and get lots of unlocks.

Dishonored

So far I've only played it (on PC) for a couple of hours but...










meh.

For me, it just plays way too much like a console port on rails. Indicators, highlighting and subtitles all active. The keyboard controls at default are mapped just differently enough to get you in trouble; the game really begs for an Xbox controller. I'll try again over the weekend and see if it gets better but right now I'm glad it was on sale.

So I'm picking up a few titles dirt cheap with the Steam sale. I don't think it's possible, but has anyone been able to play Steam games through their XBox 360?

Second question - How important is hard drive space for the 360. I understand disk based games can run with reduced load times if copied onto the hard drive. I also enjoy indie games, and there would be the inevitable DLC.

Anybody have preferences for multiplatform games, console vs PC?

,
I own both a ps3 and a xbox 360 (the cheap one) and you wont have much space to download games on a 360. ps3 has plenty of space out of the box. I prefer the ps3 by a wide margin.. I havent played many pc games I enjoy playing console games for several reasons. Much cheaper playing on a 50 in Tv verus a computer screen and the money it takes to have a powerful game computer. In my opinion the best games are battlefield 3(online), dead space 1 and 2, resident evil 5(6 was terrible), and assinsin creed has beem fun and these games can be played on any system. Anybody wants to play online battlefield or cod send me an invite SoFa-Soldier I play with a good bunch of guys. For indie games check out dust weird, but fun

It's snowing, riding is out for the time being.

Halo 4 has been out for a few weeks, is it worth getting?

Steam is for Mac, Linux, and Windows only, an XBox 360 couldn't even run the Windows 7 OS.

I have my top few games saved to the HD, if you have a new XBox and do that you likely will never run out of space for downloaded games unless you are buying a ton.

I use an XBox controller for both, XBox is better for online play since my friends have it. PC is better if you want tons of hacks and additional levels.

Amazon has a few cyber Monday deals going on, and New Egg has surprisingly been the best place for me to find deals. And most of the games even down to 10 bucks have free shipping there.

Also if any of you guys use the XBox 360 for TV/Video a lot snag the remote! I just got it and it works great plus the big thing is I wont be wasting my battery anymore.

I'm about 1/4 through Black Ops II, thinking to myself how far games have come in the last 10-20 years. I mean, 10 years ago Half-Life was the greatest thing ever.

Black Ops is insane. The graphics, flow, interface and physics of combat are incredible. These really are like movie productions.

Thing is, so many games now are so good that I've almost become numb to it. Borderlands2, Fallout3, Batman AC, Crysis are all good, but there are a few that really stand out....Skyrim and Mass Effect for example.

My point? None, really
But Black Ops II kicks ass as far as FPS go. We've come a long way from Doom and Quake.
