Okay so my other half managed to convince me to invest our xmas money back in january on an xbox 360. I'm a game person but I'm not a game console person. Theres nothing I like to do better than spend hours of my free time playing some random game on the pc.
My biggest issue with getting a console was that we are commiting ourselves to the wrong console - first it was the wii and I managed to talk her out of it as the nolvetly factor would wear off and we'll be left with a crappy console. So our 2nd option was an xbox. What clinched the deal for me was that it had red alert. So I've been playing it off and on til last month-ish. My other half has been having fun with sonic unleashed and laura croft. And we've also been streaming tv episodes down from my fileserver upstairs which keeps it busy.
However, I love games like Elite, Privateer, Wing Commander, Federation of Free Traiders, Homeworld Catalysm, X3 etc etc etc and for the live of me I can't find anything for the xbox anywhere that matches that sort of calibre. I could even find myself totally lost in Eve online if it wasn't sooo expensive long term. Each week I scan through gamespot searching for anything that would pull my interest in but nothing. why is xbox full of FPS's?? You would've thought some nice space opera where you fly through space trading, destroying, following missions, jumpgating etc would port quite nicely over to the xbox but nadaa.
One game my friend has recommended is slypeed which is a vague jap game which is pretty good but very restrictive in what you can do - you can only follow the storyline and not really make you're own rules/goals etc.
So I'm throwing this out to dlt - anyone know of any games that would be of interest to me??
