No other address.
My broke *** lives in a 6"x2" po box. It is a tight fit, but at least I have my PS3 and flat screen in there.

I don't really want an xbox though. I will most likely not be playing online games, just need something to entertain me for a few hours here and there. The blu ray player in it is quite tempting.

I give you guys a lot of crap about the xbox but it is one hell of a machine. If I was a big time gamer, I'd probably go that route but at this point it doesn't make much sense. Hell, I owned a PS2 for years and proabably only owned 6 games.

...that's because there wasn't any games worth owning/playing. I had a PS2 as well and enjoyed some of the series on that platform (Gran Tourismo)....but with the introduction into online gaming...I was sold.

...what kind of games do you enjoy Jedi?

I got my PS3 for free . . . so the choice was made for me.

I do play online games a bit, so an XboX may have been better. But for the price, and the way things are looking for Blu-Ray, I like havin the PS3. That and the fact that we have a bunch of other sony equipment that is all linked up now.

keith: that's the thing, it's been soooo long since I played games that I wouldn't even know where to begin.

- I enjoy sports games: Football, Hockey, Basketball
- Metal Gear was one of my favorite games, I think there's a new one out.
- Not a fan of first person shooters, I get bored too quickly or I want to throw my controller at the TV because some damn sniper got me and I don't know where the #@$# he is.
- Grand Turismo was tons of fun although I probably never fully utilized most of the options as back then I didn't understand the gearing, camber, etc etc.

not trying to debate the xbox vs ps3 since I think we covered that quite extensively in the last thread. I just think it suites my needs better AND it means I can start buying blu ray movies for my new TV!

Speed: CONGRATS on getting that badboy up and running. I'm soooo behind on your Miata thread. What was the culprit?

Jedi, this is what I would recommend...since you want PS3 for a couple of reasons. Get a PS3, and a subscription to Gamefly....or just go rent a couple games from Blockbuster, Hollywood Video, Etc.

Check Gamestop's website and they'll have the top 10 games for the system at that point. Play what is popular, as that offers you the best chances at finding some good online play....and find some games that you enjoy.

I know what you mean, about being away for so long, you don't even know what you would want to play.

I really enjoyed the Final Fantasy series when I had the PS2....and I had that need to find something similar on the 360. I tried a couple games that looked the same, but rented them and they didn't have the same feel. Finally found one that was what I wanted and it just felt good.

I never played Metal Gear, so I don't even know what type of game that is....but, you could always go into a Gamestop and ask them if they have any recommendations....of games that would be like Metal Gear?

oh man, Metal Gear was an awesome game. You were this secret ops guy who had to rescue the world. The videos and storyline were what REALLY sold me on the game. This was YEARS ago and I just remember how the story line would suck you in. Heck, even Emilie loved watching me play since she thought the story line was great.

Lemme see if I can find a link or a review of it just for fun. I believe the actual game was Metal Gear Solid.

Keith: great suggestion about checking out that top 10 list, hadn't even thought about that.

Injectors not flowing proper fuel. He is going to send the injectors off for service and we'll then see what is wrong with them....if they are stuck open, not flowing well, not flowing consistently between all four injectors, etc.

Also need to get new spark plugs and swap fluids out. There is a ton of fuel in the engine oil...so changing this out is a must. The diff and trans have new fluids, but we may be swapping it all out to replace with new Amsoil...since Amsoil is the most popular in the Miata racing world...and that is one of the cars sponsors.

Metal Gear looks a lot like a 3rd person shooter.....

check out Assassin's Creed, that has the same 3rd person perspective, as well as a very interesting storyline. Erica is playing this game and loves it. It starts off rather slow (with the tutorial level) but builds really fast as you earn better abilities and such.

I love RPG games, as well as those that are similar in structure to to old board game (Dungeons and Dragons). I love the whole skill set, weapons versus magic, stealth versus brute strength. I absolutely loved Oblivion. Another 3rd person player with lots of quests, and multiple story lines. There was a game that just came out called Two Worlds. The demo looked exactly like Oblivion and I got excited. I downbloaded the demo and played it...it was horrible. Made me want to go out and get Oblivion again though.

I don't know if either of these titles is available for PS3....I know they are available for 360. I guess that is the other thing that sucks, because if the game is only available for 360, you won't be able to get much advice from us 360 guys.

Other games that i have really enjoyed on the 360.

Lost Planet

Other games that you may want to consider: any of the star wars series of games....I think there is one called Jedi Academy....there is also another one that Cesar had told me about a month or so ago, that was in development that he was really excited about. I don't know what it was called or when it will be released....but most of the Star Wars games are released for boths systems. Lucas like making money and he has no committment to either 360 of PS3.

Beagle has PS3, what are you playing right now?

Does PS3 offer free game downloads? The playable demo part of xbox 360 is so great. You can download a playable demo and determine if it is a good game for you. You don't even know how many games I have downloaded and have realized that they were not right for me. This is so much better than the old days of going down to Toys R Us, buying a game and taking it home to realize it wasn't what you were hoping.

Driving series are always popular.

There is the Need for Speed series
Burnout series
Test Drive
Stunt Man
Project Gotham (360 only)
Forza (360 only)
Gran Tourismo (PS only)
Dirt (this is a great game for rally)

I think Casey rented Sega Ralley World...he said it wasn't that good.

sorry, realized I have posted a lot...as you can tell, video gaming is something I am really interested in.... I get really animated when talking about gaming. There are so may computer games that are being released on the platforms right now too, so many of your computer favorites will soon be avialable on the 360 and PS3.
