Hmmm... maybe he was visiting and it was split-screen. I know I haven't done any sort of tunneling since my PC days. I know it wasn't Halo 2 because I didn't play that for more than 2 hours

please pm me.

thanks in advance, i do appreciate it sincerely.
Not really the place for begging for codes. If you're interested in Live it's worth purchasing for $35 on Amazon. And since you'll likely be asking for these once you get to some other co-op games, it's well worth the investment...

No interest here, but that is a kick ass poster/image.

All over that game for sure, will put that on Gamefly for sure. The 1st one was a blast to play, albeit some mindless fun. And man that is one of the sweetest posters I've seen in awhile.

Agree, great poster.

And of course the box art is going to be an angel with big boobs.

Here's the Japanese box, for reference. I'm sure it'll be changed over here.

I think I have a friend with the first one and I've thought about grabbing it from him a few times. Is it worth playing?

If you like hack and slash games, yes, it's pretty good.

Most people find them repetitive though (quizzically, considering other popular genres, but I digress).

There's a demo as well, if you want to check it out.

I forget who it was but someone was looking for the Controller w/Play N Charge kit cheap in the last thread about a month ago so,

Amazon has both the red and black ones on sale for $42.

^ I might bite on one of those, don't NEED it, but it would be useful. Thanks.

re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

I'm sitting out each and every 360 controller deal in hopes of a new controller with an improved D-pad. It's been years and they still haven't fixed it (except for a limited-edition European model in 2008). Is it foolish to keep waiting on an upgraded controller that seems to never come?

Yes it is foolish, buy one today so that MS will announce one next week. Have you picked up Trials yet? If not buy that as well so we can see it on sale soon.

You could always try that Razer one. Given their PC peripherals are pretty nice for gamers, maybe the 360 controller is an improvement.

Nice try!

And my magic touch is delayed now. I bought Trials HD the day it came out. Don't worry, every other XBLA game I bought in 2008 has gone on sale in the past month, so Trials can't be that far off!

re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

I've needed a second controller since I got my 360 two years ago. Got tired of waiting for one with an improved D-pad, so I jumped on that black controller kit as soon as it went on sale last week. $42 is a great price for that thing.

So you guys will have me to thank when Microsoft announces a new controller next week.

re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

Was that Euro controller ever confirmed? It was for Pro Evolution, right?

I wouldn't count on them releasing a new controller anymore unless it's done silently. I just sort of got used to the analog stick for platform games and bought a joystick (well, two joysticks) for shoot 'em ups. There's still a few things a great d-pad would be nice for but it seems like a lost cause now.

From Wikipedia:
Green "Limited Edition" controllers were released in mid October 2008 in Europe, Asia, and Latin America. The green controller has a direction pad with 16-way functionality[2], instead of the 8-way direction pad used on all previous controllers. This controller was released alongside Pro Evolution Soccer 2009.

Yeah, that's what I figured.
It would be one thing if they had never manufactured a better D pad, but they actually have. I don't understand why they won't integrate it into their regular controller, especially with all the XBLA and Indie games that could make good use of the pad. In any case, I still have three working pads as well as a fightpad and a nice Joystick, so I'm set for now. But if they were to ever pull a Sony and upgrade their first-party controller, I'd be all over that one.

re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

I wonder how hard one of those will be to track down..

I found two on eBay UK.

Unless there was another green one released, hmm.

re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

Question about Xbox Live... I just automatically re-upped for another 12 months and if I buy a card and enter the code, will my automatic renewal wait an additional 12 months?

If you have already re-upped then that's it, you're good until Jan. 2011. If you buy a card it adds to it. So the card would carry you from Jan. 2011-Jan. 2012.

Cool thanks! My original controller's L stick gets stuck in "Up/Forward" position.

Another Pixy-only title, but Death Smiles was FINALLY confirmed for its US release (that took forever, almost thought they bailed out).

I don't think the publisher/date have been made public yet though.
