I just had a nice renaissance with the system, finishing 007: From Russia with Love

007: From Russia with Love

Quick run-though, fun and easy to play. Not as intense as Everything or Nothing, but has some really fun "gaming" moments and holds up very well graphically. The voice acting is a highlight as Sean Connery reprised his role as the quintessential Bond. It's an action game that isn't terribly difficult with fair checkpoint system. Rarely was I ever upset with being finished off from an event that was out of my control. My only negatives stem from the driving controls on a few Istanbul levels where the car accelerates too fast and the directions are sometimes unclear. I'd anticipate the average gamer taking 6-8 hours to beat this.

I have a disc, manual, and cover art available that I'll send out for $1 + shipping.

Bumping this up. Where the OG xbox guys at?

Finally went through with turning my xbox into a completely set up media center (upgraded hard drive, movies and media, all cover art, "XTV" theme which is a take on Apple TV, tons of homebrew games, etc, its pretty bad ass). Been picking up systems for around $20 on craigslist over the years, but never really got into doing anything with them. I think I'm going to make a Texas Rangers themed box, repaint my current box with a longhorns theme, and maybe a few other projects. Good project for me to do over the summer, and not very expensive.

As far as the games, I've been playing a lot of NHL 94 if that counts. Keep telling myself I'm going to finish KOTOR, but I've probably played through the first few levels 100 times and never actually finished it.

My original Xbox stopped working but if it was I'd definitely be playing Def Jam: Fight for NY and maybe Phantasy Star Online E1&2. It really sucks that neither of these are backward compatible. They should at least be On Demand :-(
Does Xbox/Microsoft accept game requests somehow?

Stick with KOTOR. It is absolutely worth it. I need to actually play KOTOR 2 and Jade Empire. Should do another KOTOR runthrough, but I've only got so much time.

DJFFNY is awesome! When's the last time they've even added a og xbox game to On Demand? I'm pretty sure they are all games that are already BC though.

XIII is underrated and cool. How's Underground?

Since I got the reach beta disc I figure it's time to play through the halo series. I'm halfway thru level three of halo 1. After that will be finishing the PoP series from 2 on, Splinter Cell series from 2 on and then Brothers In Arms. I just had ACL surgery so I figure I'll have smoe more time for gaming.

NFSU was good, I really enjoyed it. Graphically, I thought it looked it great. A lot of options for visually tricking out the car. Solid, arcade-style gameplay.

Yeah, it's one of my all time favorite games, but I've played through half of it so many times.. Once I got pretty much near the end but all of my saves got deleted, except the one where I was literally 3 seconds from dying and there was nothing I could do.. So I started over and got pretty far, then my xbox died, etc. Between that and the PC version I've probably put like 100 hours into this game haha, but like you said, i'd have to do another playthrough and theres only so much time in a day.

I almost picked up the first SW:KOTOR game and Robotech Invasion at a local second hand videogame shop, but was short on cash so I had to pass on both.

I feel the same way about Urban Chaos Riot Response. I still think it's one of the best underrated FPS games of the last generation.

It's cheesy as hell, but the replayability is crazy. I'm still trying to get 100% on all of the missions/difficulties.

Toejam and Earl III: Mission to Earth :bouncy:

I just spent an hour dragging a boat up a mountain for a trophy. What have I become...

 

Now just play a really piece of shit game and then complain about it until (and well after) you get the plat.

I was never a huge fan of XBOX back in its heyday but I got a sudden urge to play Panzer Dragoon Orta a few weeks back and fired it up on my new TV (a Sony XBR960 HD CRT) using S-Video cables.
Holy hell did it look bad!

I did a little research and found out about the "High Definition AV Pack" adapter that lets you hook up the XBOX via Component and output 480p, 720p, and 1080i resolutions.
I found one on eBay for $11.50 shipped and it showed up this past Friday.
My games look amazing now! :)

Plus I've picked up quite a few games recently like Conker, Stubbs the Zombie, TRON 2.0, Star Wars Battlefront II, and Deus Ex 2 so I'm looking forward to trying them out in HD. :D

Check out Anomaly 1729, my team's Indie game, on Steam!

A few games default to 720p when connected with Component cables.
I think I paid $10 for a set of Monster component cables.

I just picked up Battlefront II and Knights of the Old Republic for $5 each today from a Pawn Shop. Going to check them out. I think they both work on the 360.

Just started Jade Empire. Now let's see if I can actually finish it. I've started so many games and never finish them because I never have time. When I do, I forget about the ones I started and start a different one. Rinse and repeat! LOL.

Fired up my NCAA Football 2006 dynasty the other day for the first time in a couple years. Over 450 victories :shock:, forgot how much I played that game (at the most, 50% of the games sim'ed).

If you didn't play it, in the '06 version, once you learn how to control the running back correctly and run the proper plays, it was pretty easy to dominate. Furthermore, if you started the dynasty with a few National Championships in a row, you could own the recruiting season and have a juggernaut team every single year.

After a few minutes of remembering how many college homework breaks this game was responsible for, I quickly remembered how I got booted by my create-a-school after like 20 some years of winning seasons, which kept me from surpassing Joe Pa's record of years at a school.

Seriously, how the Fuck do you fire a coach who won you like 14 National Championships? Bastards.

Also started messing around in a new game of GTA3, but quickly got bored. I wish they would come out with an HD collection of the PS2/Xbox GTA's. I have it on PC, but the lack of true controller support irritates me. Plus trophies/achievements would be nice.

I have been playing a lot of XBox games lately, I keep buying more and more games because they are so cheap and really don't need so many games as I am up to close to 75 games.

MX vs ATV Unleashed, fun game but it is annoying in championship mode, each race has to be completed twice and the checkpoint racing is 5 laps which can take 15+ minutes per race.

Simpsons Hit and Run, ok but I gave up on it because I found it kind of tedious having so many missions collecting stuff.

Amped, I replayed this and got up to around rank 70 after that it got too difficult for me.

NFL Blitz 2003 and NHL Hitz 2003, just working on the season mode on both games. The mini games in Hitz 2003 are a lot of fun.

Arctic Thunder, much better than the arcade version with extra tracks

Midway Arcade Treasures 3, one of the greatest values of the past generation of games. Other than the save feature not working right on games like Hydro Thunder, this has become one of my favorite XBox games.

I just picked up an original xbox yesterday. I've had a few non back compat games for a while. I was pleasantly surprised to find it was a modded system with about 15 games on the upgraded Hard Drive. The Type S controllers are throwing me for a bit of a loop. Much different than I remember.

Not bad for $25.

oh and I am playing Project: Snowblind
