Right now, I'm playing through Scarface and loving every second of it. I finally picked it up thanks to the Blockbuster buy one get one sale, but wanna go back and grab Pirates from my local BB. I just wish they had a copy of the game Freedom Fighters for Xbox or PS2 on the shelf at that store, since that's the other one I want. It's only like $10 now.

I had it once, but got rid of it, since I wasn't into the strategic shooters back then, but I've since found myself very into the Rainbow Six series and want to try this again.

Since I got a 360, I only use my xbox to play non bc games. Ive been playing thru Riddick, and I finally found Kung Fu Chaos mint on the store a couple weeks ago, so Ive been playing that as well.

I have mostly been playing Halo 2 cause I am in a series of local tournaments so I need to practice but my backlog is really building.

Panzer Dragoon Orta
Shenmue 2
Rainbow Six: Lockdown
Ghost Recon 2
Burnout Revenge
The Chronicles of Riddick
Metal Arms Glitch in the System
Gladius
Splinter Cell Double Agent
All 3 Prince of Persias.
Psi Ops Mindgate Conspiracy

That is JUST ON XBOX! That doesn't include all the PC games I have backlogged so I really need to get working on those games.

Now that the system is only $80, I picked up 3 more systems. The 4 screen system link is really fun.

My Xboxs are getting more play than the 360.

My buddies and I are working thru all Ghost Recons and Rainbow Six games. I picked up four copies of ever version with the B2G2. We have had all 16 in the room working together in the co-op modes.

Most people prefer the co-op games because the good players don't get to pick on the crappy players. It's all team work.

System Link Serious Sam (1 &2) and OutRun are intense Arcade style action. There is nothing like rolling in with three buds unloading rocket launchers at the same time or everyone in the same room drifting into the final corner of a race in OutRun.

Until I can afford 3 more 360s and four versions of each game, the original Xbox will continue to rule Friday nights.

$80? Where is it $80? And.....I just nabbed 2 more games from the BOGO from BB last night. I found a near complete Sid Meier's Pirates and originally, I bought Armed & Dangerous with that. I tried getting the girl to scan the cheaper game first, to see if there IS a glitch like someone reported on, with the second game ALWAYS being 'free', but no go.

So, I eventually ended up swapping out the A&D for a copy of True Crime, Streets Of LA, which I also don't like, so I may swap it out at ANOTHER BB for a copy of Freedom Fighters and pay the difference(FF's is $9.99).

Either way, I'm super happy with this sale thus far, as it's increased my ever expanding Xbox backlog.

Yeah and at $9.99 @ Blockbuster now, it's a hell of a deal. Plus, I'm now looking for a copy of the manual for Sid Meier's Pirates, since no one has the friggin thing anymore. I shouldn't have hesitated during CC's LAST July 4th sale(last year) and just grabbed it for $9.

But, in typical procrastinator fashion, I waited and waited(even let the game 'drop' between the side walls of the $9 game bin to try and 'stash it) and when I FINALLY went to pick it up, LONG GONE!!

I still have to test out Silent Scope Complete before the end of the 30 day guarantee too, to make sure it works.

Oh and the only thing I'm annoyed by in Scarface thus far is the fact that almost every interaction involved those damned button pressing/holding 'scales'. I think I lost about 50g's of coke the one time when I didn't fast talk a cop.

Other than that, I'm loving it....well except the last mission in Little Havana(storehouse).

For REAL! I am really, really disappointed in this year's July clearance. I wouldn't mind getting Pirates! for $9 right about now, along with some other games that would fit nicely into an $8.96 clearance this year if they had one....Namely, Scarface, Godfather, Just Cause, Destroy All Humans 2....

LOL Camelking, I got past the Havana storehouse and I'm now on the Babylon club mission and what a pita it is. I got the VIP to the back door with just a SLIVER of health left and instead of walking into the checkpoint after I cleared all the enemies, the dummy just stood there and got killed or lagged behind and got killed by shots from behind(which I had already cleared).

So yeah, I was NOT a happy gamer....to say the least. Plus, I played Sid Meier's Pirates last night for like 2-3 hours and kept looking for a save point in the menus or various ports and no luck, so I thought 'well maybe it's an auto save game'. So, I quit out and go back to load my saved game, no saved game.

It REALLY would've helped if the game came with the instruction booklet, since I was going apeshit looking for that save function.

I may try replaying it tonight, though I had several really tough battles to get to where I was and I don't feel like repeating those, namely because the ships move like snails. But, I do get a kick out of the fact you have to steer the ship around till you find the wind, like a real sailing ship, unlike Pirates: The Legend Of Black Kat, which had a 'wind boost' button.

However, it makes the game(SM Pirates) tedious for the ship to ship battles. But, I do like the swordplay mini game when you board an enemy vessel, minus the annoying timed button pressing mini game before.

I may end up returning my nearly complete, nearly mint copy of Pirates to Blockbuster before the 30 day guarantee is up and just say it doesn't work, then grab Outrun 2006 or Freedom Fighters, which I won't be so frustrated by.

BTW camelking, what's the most $$ you got from taking over a gang territory in Scarface before? Last night, I ended up getting around $450,000 from the one alone.

A couple others that slip my mind at this point....

But , I will tell all my fellow CAGs that if you haven't picked it up yet and can find it @ Kmart, GET PSYCHONAUTS FOR XBOX!!! It's a fun, trippy and really GREAT game.


I agree...it is great, hell for $20 its worth it

I have a huge backlog of Xbox games, with Final Fantasy XII and III (PS2 and DS respectively) taking up my game time, it'll probably grow before it gets smaller. >_<

The last time I played my Xbox I was playing Psychonauts, collecting doodads and whatchamacallits. AWESOME GAME. A little too much collecting though.

Anyway, with so many games of mine left unplayed/unfinished, it'll be literally years before I need to make the jump to the next gen to get my gaming fix.

I have, though with how much I was going away(both on a 'WAYYY early Xmas shopping trip' with a friend in June) and to the auto auctions I usually hit on a weekly basis, I haven't been playing Psychonauts lately.

Mind you, I was just seeing how high I could get Raz to bounce on his levitation ball before gliding down to higher ledges I hadn't reached before.

I found alot of Psitanium that way and unfortunately ran into a couple psychic bears at the same time, they had me running for my psychic life.

Right now though, I've been playing Scarface or one of the other GTA clones I have for Xbox and getting quite addicted, since I can usually pull off head shots on most gang members in an area without breaking a sweat anymore.

I DO want to complete Psychonauts though, since I truly loved that game when I was playing it every night and want to see how it ends.

See, for some odd reason, camelking, my less than 2 year old Xbox doesn't like Just Cause, though I was seriously liking it from what I played. I probably played about 2-3 hours in a row with little to no break and just did mainly stunts at the time.

The gliding behind cars in the air via parasail or whatever was fun, but not nearly as much fun as the jumping from car to car. That was one thing I kept hoping the next GTA or GTA clone would copy from JC, but they never did. :-x

I tried Knights Of The Old Republic for about 2 hours or so and I just couldn't get into the turn based system for some reason. It was definitely a nice looking game, but the whole 'put in your attack, hit a button and wait' thing never appealed to me. Hell, I had Baten Kaitos for GC and for how nice it looked, I also couldn't get into that either.

As for Fable, I got all the way to one of the last battles, then I got frustrated over not getting by that, so I moved onto Psychonauts. LOL

I still have to take back my copies of Pirates(sid meiers) and True Crime to a Blockbuster because I finally decided I don't want them. I'm glad I got like 30 days to do it though.

You can turn off all the "pause on end of round" toggles and it might speed the game up a lot for you. You should give it another shot.

Now that, my friend, is a shared moment.

I got the same amount I paid for it from Kmart in FYE credit, plus the bonus of nearly a buck in cred, so I dumped it yesterday. That's my policy anymore, anything that I don't play in forever but paid cheap enough that $2-3 in credit or cash is enough to recoup my cash spent is going away quickly.

Hell, I just got rid of Liberty City Stories for PS2, which gets $10 even at FYE with the 45% bonus deal that ends today.

Xbox: I've been playing Breakdown lately. Great game so far. Also just got Thief: DS in from GameFly so I need to start on that and finish beating Beyond Good & Evil as well.

GameCube: Just traded for a GC + games last week and have been testing out all my "new" games. Metroid Prime is pretty sweet, but I started playing Paper Mario and am addicted to that now. Never got to beat the N64 version, but I'll be sure to complete this one.
