    Huzzah! I got my own 360 finally. I bought Rainbow Six: Las Vegas months before even getting the system itself. Now I can play Las Vegas in my own home without having to go to a friends. I am experiencing lockups with Las Vegas though, but not Gears of War (which Im barrowing). I'm pretty sure I know why Vegas is locking up and it's my fault, might have to get it replaced, pity :( 

    Anywho, here's what I'm going to get for my new toy. The games are going to be listed in order of what I'm getting 1st.

    1. R6: Las Vegas (already got)
    2. Viva Pinatta.
    3. Lost Planet. (Might be replaced by Mass Effect)
    4. Gears of War (get my own copy instead of barrowing) or Splinter Cell Double Agent.
    5. Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2.

    Anything I should add to this list? I like military (past, present or future) combat themed games the most but I like to branch off as well into games with imignation in them, such as Viva Pinatta. I don't usually play sport games but have been hooked on some, dont like football though. One thing I do not like that I've seen appear on the Xbox lately Japanese RPGs. I'm not being xenophobic about this but there is a huge difference in East and West RPGs, I did enjoy Crono Trigger and Xenogears but thats it.

    Congratulations!

    I can't comment on some of those games because I don't have them, but Viva Pinata is pretty decent and Gears of War is sweet too

    Some other games that I like to play on my 360 are:

    Marvel Ultimate Alliance
    Guitar Hero 2
    Fight Night Round 3
    Tony Hawk Project 8

    Not sure if that helps, but there's my $0.02

    Just remember, Demos are your friend. Only game I seen list by you or the others I woudl not get is FRAW 2, just simply because I did not like the 3rd peson view set for the game. Felt kinda like the SOCOM series, which I am not a big fan of either.

    I am not that much into military games, but you said you like them.

    Battlestations: Midway
    Call of Duty 2 & 3.

    You owe it to yourself to play Dead Rising.
    Pure Awesome.

    How do you like Gears?

    I like Gears alot. Gears feels like one of those games that I have to put into my Xbox collection. Because it's one of those games that you see is pushing the Xbox 360. The game looks like it's using the system, which mostly means fancy graphics (graphics don't make the game I know :)  ) Friday Night Fight Round 3 also caught my eye because of that, and the reviews so far have been giving it good word.

    The gameplay is also exciting and the enviorments feel "wowzah". The music isnt just some meshed together beat but feels right when you're in a gunfight. It's like I'm controlling the hero of an epic movie.

    Although I loose the experience when my roommate complains at how -not- awsome Gears is. He's one of those guys who hates the things that're popular.

    I really like Gears, too.
    If nothing else, it pushes the system graphically like no other game.

    However, I think the best contribution it has made to the industry is the online coop mode. I think it got it "right" and there are a bunch of games coming this way that seem like they will emulate it.

    I didn't see your gamertag posted yet.
    And, I forgive you for no longer having your collection.

    Not gonna see my gamertag posted for a bit. Buying my new lovely system has been quite a hole in me pocket. I want to see if I can 1st reactivate my old Xbox live account before using that free month XBox Live I got. I'm going to wait for my next pay check before signing onto any subscriptions, or my super awsome tax return. I got lucky yester-year and only contributed 1 dollar to my government *high-fives*
