I’m afraid I’m going to have to ask one of you to do something for me. You might not like it, but it has to be done. Sure it will be painful, but with time the pain will lessen and you’ll get used to your new condition. I’m going to need one of you to buy a Xbox 360. I know, I know, I’m asking a lot. But remember, you’d not doing this for yourselves, but for the good of us all.


Seriously though, I’m getting rather lonely out here in gaming land. Am I the only one that still plays games? My team has all but gone into hiding until “the next big thing” comes out. Only 3 of them have 360’s and their all Madden freaks anyway. My college and highschool friends used to game but most everyone is busy lately. Doesn’t anyone want to play some Rainbow 6, Halo or Ghost Recon? If I don’t get a “team game” fix soon, I’m going to go ape shit.

It’s not as though it’s a bad time to own a 360. The release schedule for the fall/winter season is ridiculously jam packed with AAA titles. There’s a little of everything in there. Everything from Assassins Creed, Frontlines, Mass Effect and Call of Duty strait on up to the grand-daddy Halo 3 is coming out sometime between now and X-mas. And those are just the ones I thought of off the top of my head. The list I have running on what I’m going to be buying this season is already 30+ titles deep.

With all of the great news from E3, all of the new trailers and all the confirmed release dates, this winter is going to validate my ownership of that system.

So… I’m going to go fire up the 360 for a little Xbox Live ass kicking… anyone want to join me?

Disclaimer: I wasn’t actually serious in my demand for someone to purchase a 360 solely to game with me… but it would be kinda nice. 😛
