I know I should be ashamed but I now have the xbox live

so if any of you fancy an on line game, my gamertag is Maroule (unsurprisingly). I only play ghost recon on line right now, though, there are still very few quality games supported.

Serves you right for getting a baby-PC. Buy Battlefield 1942 and play that on the daddy. ;)

I also have a PC, but it's under my mezzanina, where my girlfriend sleeps, so after 11 pm I can't play there anymore
therefore the xbox in the living room...

I'm "Moosely" on there...

I don't play Ghost Recon though.

I play NHL 2K3, NFL Fever 2003, MotoGP, and MechAssault...

cool, Asher, I'll keep your tag at hand
I might get MechAssault when it comes out in France
otherwise we'll have to wait for Halo 2 to blast each other online

How's the European beta going?

it seems to work ok
but I havn't seen many frogs around : I don't play that much live, mind you, I'm still on the PC, learning the ropes of Combat Mission to avoid getting slaughtered by RC and Beta.

I've done a short Ghost recon live session, both cooperative and team, and it was ok. Most other players looked like hyperactive US teenagers, though, which is not necessarily my cup of tea (but I need to try more). I'm trying to convert a few friends of mine to it, though.

The games are always better with people you know, rather than random people.

In addition to a whole bunch of my RL friends who have it (it's fantastic for playing NHL matches with RL friends, that's huge here :D) I've met a bunch of people that I enjoyed playing with and added them to my friend's list.

Many of the games I do I do with people I know, it's just that much more enjoyable to me.

that will be my approach to it, too

Is there much lag? You're playing against mostly North Americans I'm guessing, and that's a big transatlantic hop...

I've played ghost recon with up to 6 players and it looked like it was the max it could take (still, only very small lag)

at 4 players there is definitively no lag

Sexy

I've never really experienced lag at all on it, but I'm very close to the North American datacenters so that never really surprised me

I'm not the most skilled person at MechAssault, don't worry.

What time (GMT) are you usually on?

maroule
21-01-2003, 16:48:49
I'll start playing more regularly now, and around 10 pm GMT. You?

Asher
21-01-2003, 18:11:19
10pm GMT is 3pm local time for me. Mon/wed/fri I'm home around that time...
