Ep 98: Wave 'em up

posts 6


I have recently become the proud owner of an Xbox 360 ( a little late to the party!) and I have a week off work next week with nothing to do. HUZZAH!!! I only have halo 4, halo wars and call of duty ghosts. I have had a ps3 for a long time and I'm looking for some experienced gamers advice on what 360 exclusives I should pick up to waste away my valuable time off.

Any help is gratefully received smile

Can't go wrong with checking out the Gears Of War series. I've got a code for a free copy of Gears 1 if you fancy it?

I highly recommend downloading Trials Evolution. Brilliant "Just one more" fun.

Full House Poker was all the rage when it first came out. It's still the best non-gamboling online poker game, but the community isn't what it once was.

Hey there Ricki…

What sort of titles were floating your boat with the PS3?

If you're a racing fan of sorts, you could grab a copy of Forza 4 or maybe Forza Horizons.

I'd agree with Todd for Trials Evo – the instant restart will have your piss boiling!

And yes, Gears of War is a great shooter with gallons of blood and snot.


Its worth looking in the Arcade section…there are some great titles in there (Limbo, Braid, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 etc, etc…and a few gems in the Indie Section too.


Remember that all of the games in the Arcade can be trialled for FREE.

I would be intersted in the gears code if that's not an imposition? It's a series I was always jealous of as a ps3 owner! I played all sorts on ps3 I loved xcom, farcry 3, saints row 3 and plenty more. I'm most intersted in getting involved with the online side of things. I can't believe how good it is on xbox. Never played halo before and I'm blown away by the matchmaking and how smooth everything is and would like to see much more of what live has to offer.

I am definitely going to try a few arcade titles out, trials being the first!

Thank you for your time and advice, none of my friends are inclined to game (as much as I try and convert them!) so it's nice to have a friendly bunch to get advice from.

Thanks again smile

The only other exclusive games of note (in my opinion) would be Alan Wake and the Fable games. Both fun and cheap now!

You won't stay up there forever one drunken night, I like to think I will knock you off that leaderboard :P 


Agree with everything said Trials is ++, GTA5 is good and people are still playing that online if you like playing online.
