    YAY! I have finally saved up enough for a 360 and my parents are actually ok with my decision! I have decided to get gears of way as my first game, as my friend has it and he wants to play against me. any other good suggestions (apart from halo 3, definitely getting it)? i like shooting games

    VIVA PINATA:p...no

    Rainbow Six is pretty fun. Maybe Forza 2, Bioshock, Lost Planet....and Halo 3 of course.

    There's a lot of great shooters coming down in price. Not revolutionary shooters, but good ones all the same. Like you can get Gun for a song now. Also fear, condemned, etc. Great games although not all that revolutionary.

    Is that t'other RPG Mistwalker are working on? Because if it's the one I've seen concept art for then I'm a bit excited. BD is a great little RPG, it's not like the soap operas of modern FF games. It's fun and doesn't take itself too seriously. Anything this studio makes will get my attention.

    Guys there are loads of great games and things to talk about, but the guy asked about shooters and what not. A new thread about Blue Dragon would be great as I'd like to read about it...maybe start one?

    Oh no you didn't just dis V. Pinata! :D Seriously though, good game.

    OT:
    Besides Gears the only shooting games I have are GRAW and COD2. GRAW has gotten a bit stale in my opinion, but it's still good. COD2 is fun, but I'd wait on COD4.

    My favorites/future buys (all shooters):
    [in no particular order]

    Bioshock
    Gears of War
    Call of Duty 2 and 3 (and soon 4)
    Medal of Honor Airborne (first MoH I've liked since the first one)
    Perfect Dark Zero (very cheap now...some places under $10...well worth it)
    Orange Box (when it's released soon)
    Halo 3 (of course)
    Rainbow Six Vegas
    GRAW 1 and 2
    Time Shift (the demo is awesome, I love it)

    "Meh" (I'll buy when cheap):
    The Darkness
    F.E.A.R.

    A few not worth your time:
    Hour of Victory (horrendous)
    Call of Juarez (didn't like it, very plain and generic and visually last-gen)
    [I know I'll get hell for this next one since this is MacRumors]
    Marathon: Durandal :D (I couldn't stand the demo)

    No that's LOST ODYSSEY ;)

    Eternal Sonata - is a beautiful looking RPG based around the music of Chopin.
    It's been getting very good reviews alround. Definetly worth checking out.

    wow. thanks for the responses. I'll probably get cod4 (i got cod2 for my mac) and maybe bioshock. timeshift looks good, so i might also get that. To be honest, I despise of RPG and RTS. it's probably because it involves too much thinking.

    eeek. You did the move the 360 whilst powered on and disc is spinning routine, resuling in horrid scratched ring on your disc :(

    There are ways to resolve this. Some games stores have a disc repair service for a few $ where they take off a thin top layer of the disc, and repair the surface after.

    Other than that M$ will probably replace the disc for a few $. My COD2 disc did the same, though I don't blame the 360 it was my silly fault - but I rang the supprt number in the manual and they replaced my disc for €10 at that time.

    This is why backups should be allowed. Just wait till you have kids. Those discs are scratched daily. If I didn't mod and have backups I would be out so much money from stupid friends and kids of stupid friends :)
