By the way, I started a HALO 2 Clan, simply called "The Tech Report". I suck at Halo 2 but I figured it could be for fun. Feel free to send me a Friend Request and I will add you to the clan :D

Not sure, check their forums.

I also picked up Unreal Championship (1). Basically a port of UT2003 for Xbox.

I am using a "trial account" with the username: Krogoth255 for the time being. ;)

I also have Unreal Championship I. It is basically the original UT2K3 with less eye candy because the Xbox simply does not have the power to render the models and textures at the same level as a PC.

Right, but on my HDTV with 480p and 16:9 it doesn't look half bad. It is obviously missing AA and AF, still, I expected worse!

I'm on the 360 with the name derFunk. I've got Project Gotham 3 and DOA4 (so leor, you're not alone)

*none* of my Xbox games are backwards compatible, and I traded in the system towards the 360, so I traded in all my Xbox games. I'll probably pick up a couple backwards-compatible ones as they're cheap...Halo2 and Super Monkey Ball Deluxe, probably.

edit: Now also playing:

Rockstar's Table Tennis
Uno (well...if you catch my profile playing that, it's my wife)
Call of Duty 2
Tiger 2006 (got it super cheap and it's more active online than the PC version)
Burnout 4
Oblivion (don't think you can play online)
Final Fantasy XI
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do, I do not do. But what I hate, I do.

Cool, I want to get those two, along with Trp Spin 2, I was a big original Top Spin player. How is table tennis?

Don't bother with Tiger 2k6. All of six courses and total arcadey controls...way different than the PC version.

Table Tennis is fun, actually. If you liked Mario tennis for things other than the fact it's Mario, then you'll probably like this. The control scheme is easy; four face buttons, four different types of spin. Build a meter to get faster reaction times, more accuracy, and stronger hits for a short amount of time. Work through tournaments to unlock other players. For $40, you can't go wrong. There's a demo in the marketplace. Get it first and see what you think

I was eyeing Top Spin 2 earlier this afternoon as I really liked the original. The two demos solidified that, but I haven't bought it yet.

I hear Virtual Tennis 3 will be even better.

**** yeah, it's gonna be better. Ever play Virtua Tennis on the Dreamcast? One word: Fantastical. AM2 is SEGA's pride and joy (developers of the Outrun series in the '90s, developers of the Virtua Fighter series even today, etc.)

I'll change the first post. I hear GRAW is really good. Is the online play better than the other GR's? I was not always a fan of the slow gameplay.
