There’s a game for the xbox 360 called battlefield 1943. It’s an online war shooter, and is available in the Xbox marketplace in their arcade section. Now, to begin with I want to say this game is a bit expensive compard to other arcade titles. However the graphics are great, the fun factor is superb and it’s exciting! Great way to kill a few mins or a few hours! Taking all that into consideration, it would be totally worth the cost.

Don’t go spending your MS Points yet though, because there’s a downside, and it’s a big one! It’s the lag! It’s insane! In fact, the lag makes the game nearly unplayable. When the game first came out, the lag was fine! So, naturally I bought it. The lag was fine for a few weeks too, I enjoyed the game, was happy with my purchase. Then the lag hit! It started about 4 months ago, and it’s a common problem, look it up online.

The lag is so bad in fact, that it makes the game almost useless! It’s practically unplayable and the purchase of the game was a waste of money. Honestly, I feel Microsoft should remove it from the marketplace until whoever is hosting the servers gets their act together and gets the lag taken care of.

Bottom line, stay FAR away from this game. Its a great game, ruined by poor servers.

Yes! Today, I got my grubby little hands on Mass Effect 2 on the Xbox 360! I haven’t played much into it, but so far I am incredibly impressed.That game is incredible, which has a really nifty import feature, that lets you import your character any completed mass effect 1 campaign save games. So, I naturally imported my character, which was a level 45 Soldier. However, just beause you import your old guy, don’t think you are going to be super buff. You aren’t. You get bonus credits and your level increased from level 1 to level 2, but thats about it. So, it’s not a big deal if you don’t import.

Now, my “Sheppard” is the default male sheppard, the reason for this was because when i first started playing the original Mass Effect, I didn’t read the manual, because I am a dude. So, at first I didn’t realise I could customise the character. Then by the time I found out, I was a good ways into the game, and didn’t want to start over. It turned out to be a good thing, because when I went to play the game again, i found the other presets to suck, and couldn’t make a sheppard that looked appealing to me. Although I did make a character that looked an awful lot like Dennis Leary.

After you play a bit through Mass effect 2, you arrive at a point where you can re-customise your character. However, I had grown used to Default Sheppard, and that’s what I decided to stick with. The look fits the voice PERFECTLY, and on top of that, it’s the model that I am used to.

If you haven’t gotten this game yet? You totally need to. Seriously.
