    It's funny, my Xbox plays the FOTR EE just fine. However, it wouldn't play TTT until I took it out, wiped it a bit and re-inserted it on the darn thing. Then it played just fine. Now, the only DVD it won't play is The Matrix. I don't know if it's because it's an older DVD or if I gotta change some settings on my Xbox (doubtful).

    I've finished KOTOR a few times already and now I'm bored. There doesn't seem to be anything interesting on the horizon 'til the holidays? Any games anyone might reccomend (am not into sports though)?

    Well, right now I'm totally into Ghost Recon - I'm playing that on XBox Live.

    Splinter Cell is great if you haven't played it yet. We also rented Brute Force and that's a pretty entertaining game as well.

    Xbox Live for $34? I'll have to let my buddy who's been putting it off to check Target.

    As far as good Live games, I've heard that Return to Castle Wolfenstein is a blast. Ghost Recon is still one of the best.

    Sadly, I returned it some time ago, before I got Live. I am psyched for Raven Shield, however. That game is going to rock.

    BTW, my gamertag is Pyrrhonist, in case you want to add me. Perhaps we'll cross paths online some time.

    >>>I was testing all my DVDs to make sure it worked. Everyone worked.... except for my FOTR EE! I am soooo angry. When I put it in it says that the Xbox cannot recognize the disc, and to make sure it is an xbox game, audio CD or a DVD movie. the FOTR EE works in my regular DVD player, but not the xbox.<<<

    The first 3 discs works fine for me. But the fourth disc with the music stuff gives me the same message. I just found that out last week after I finaly got a round to checking out what was on that last disc. Hehe, I've had the thing for almost a year and now I find out. I'm to lazy to see if it works on my regular DVD player. Maybe I'll get around to checking out if it works someday. Aslong as I can watch the movie on my Xbox I'm happy. :D

    Just got my X-box recently and I love it. Question, not sure if it has been asked anywhere, and there is WAY to much stuff to go through; The official X-Box magazine...is it worth getting a subscription for the demo disks? I bought the mag for this month for the demo disk and it seems like it has some alright demos on it...what is everyones opinion on this?

    Not really. Some months they have crap demos or they repeat them. If your only interested in the demos then it might be best to buy the mag on a month by month basis.

    Had the XBOX for about a month now. I love it. I used to have the PS2, but I am sold on the box. You have to love the built in hard drive. No memory card needed... Thank you!

    The magazine is good for the info, but if all you want is the demos then get it at the newstand when it has good demos on it. Sometimes they just suck. This month's is really good. It's supposed to have Rainbow Six 3, ESPN NBA Basketball and ESPN NCAA Basketball, among others.

    Nope. I've heard the HD is 8-10 gigs (there are different models, apparently).

    Second, how many games do you have saved to your XBox?

    Twelve. Most of them I didn't put on my Xbox, though. Sometimes my brother borrows it.

    Also, I've got 6 soundtrack folders. Four are from Star Wars (TPM, ANH, ESB, and ROTJ), one includes music from Raiders of the Lost Ark and the Last Crusade, and one contains random J-Pop songs.

    Halo is fun to play 4-player. I think that you can also play Gauntlet: Dark Legacy with 4 players, but I'm not sure on that (I've played with 3).

    Yes Halo. I've never heard of Gauntlet before, I'll have to check that out. Any other suggestions?

    It has been some time since I've posted in this thread, eh? 8-}

    Well, after Xmas (and my incessant spending on family members), I decided to use some of the Xmas ca$h I received and pick up some new games for myself, since I've been just rotating ESPN NHL, ESPN NFL, and the GTA Double Pack lately. I picked up Tiger Woods 2004, and Buffy: Chaos Bleeds. For those of you who were big fans of the first Buffy game (a highly underrated game), this one is great, as well. Plus, it was reduced to $19.99 at Worst Buy. I'd recommend it to anyone who's on the fence.

    I am still waiting impatiently for the release of Ninja Gaiden. The NES dork in me grows tired of the wait.

    Well I picked up an Xbox back in November as an early christmas present. I'm glad I picked up it, when it first game out there really wasn't anything that caught my attention but it seems a lot of good games are coming out but that won't be for a while though. So far I have the following games.

    Star Wars: The Clone Wars/Tetris Worlds(came on on disc for free when I bought the Xbox)
    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
    Crimison Skies: High Road to Revenge

    I'm really looking forward to Halo 2(have the first one on the PC, got a copy from a friend), Fable, Jade Empire, KOTOR2, Starcraft Ghost and a few others I can't remember right now. Can anyone suggest any currentloy released games that I should get? I love RPGs butt I also enjoy action, shooters and even arcade sports.

    I was thinking of picking up Mechassult but I don't have Xbox Live(might get it this summer since parents back at home are getting cable put in, currently at college and a lot of the ports are closed). Is that an online only game or is there a single player to it? Any other games you could recommend would be great and why they are good as well.

    Rainbow Six 3 is really fun. The single player is good, but the multiplayer on Live is great.

    Mechassault does have a single player campaign.

    I've still never seen you on there, Tobey. ;)

    Rainbow Six is great as is Ghost Recon. Both have terrific Live multiplayer options.

    Halo, of course, is a must have. Really, it just depends on what kinds of games you like to play.

    Rotten Tomatoes is quite a good site for getting various reviews of games. It does what it does for movies with games too, so you can find out if you are buying a stinker or not.
