I know, I know – I decided on Splinter Cell:Double Agent over Gears of War and other games. But this past week I rented and as my XBox 360’s Blog points out I’ve been playing Gears of War with my sons and online friends, and I’m impressed. Graphics, story, music and sounds, and especially the […]
Gaming Decision Made
I made my decision. Between Splinter Cell:Double Agent, Rainbow 6 Vegas, and Gears of War I was torn, but then I picked up Splinter Cell: Double Agent for my son and had a few days to play it before he came home from college that weekend. When he got home I told him he had […]

Sporeâ€™s players will […]
Lego and Star Wars – A Great Combination
A big thank you goes out to John Porcaro, for giving me a nudge. I had seen talk about LEGOÂ® Star WarsÂ® II: The Original Trilogy in various forums, but hadn’t really thought much about it. The other evening I saw an ad on TV that made it look pretty cool, and then John poked […]
What Games do Your Friends Play?
I knew this existed, and had used it several weeks ago thanks to Major Nelson pointing it out in one of his interviews, but then lost the pointer. 360Leaderboards has a way, albeit just a little complicated, to get a list of all the 360 games that your friends have played. Isn’t that pretty cool […]
Today’s The Day
If you have an Xbox 360 but aren’t yet signed up with Xbox LIVE, today’s the day (yes, Rob, this means you). Today’s the day to get your butt back home, plug that network cable in and get signed up. At least get signed up with a Silver membership. Why today? Easy – to get […]
About My Xbox 360’s Blog
I was trying to explain my Xbox 360’s weblog the other day to someone who insisted that “computer’s don’t think” and kept asking “so who’s really writing that?” I told PirateT7 ‘Don’t make me hurt you!’ and the threat worked… I finally came up with the right explanation: It’s a computerized version of MadLibs.
