Halo Wars is now here. Have you played it yet? I downloaded some of the demo that was available but never got to play it yet. DARN RESPONSIBILITIES!!! I’m curious what you think though, is it a worth game to include in the Halo family? Or, is it just a game that they’re trying to gain popularity off of just by using the Halo name, characters, equipment and plot?
Let me know.
I confess, I’m addicted to Bubble Breaker on my Windows Mobile phone. The problem is I’m actually getting bored with it. I need to find a good game or two to add to my device to break-up the monotony a little bit.
Solitaire is old as well, so wondering what everyone else is playing? I’m not really interested in any in-depth, drawn out games. Just simple stuff to play when you’re waiting in the car for someone or have a few minutes to kill between appointments.
I play Bubble Breaker as a bit of a de-stresser and opportunity to …read more
I’ve downloaded the demo trial of Halo Wars from Xbox LIVE. I haven’t had a chance to even play it yet, darn job!
Wondering what everyone else has thought about it if you’ve already downloaded it and played it a bit.
HALO has been one of the top games I’ve played the most since having my first XBOX and now XBOX 360. I’d say HALO along with Tiger Woods golf ever since version 2003.
What’s everyone else’s opinion been of the game thus far? Is it going to be another blockbuster for the franchise or will it be just a blip for …read more
Congratulations to Desirai and John who we mentioned a couple of weeks ago and how they met while playing Halo online together.
Today was their big day and we’d like to congratulate them on their union of forces.

Here’s another interesting story from Douglas Karr about a couple that met while chasin’ and fraggin’ each other on the various Halo maps online.
Desirai and John (aka SickNdehead and psychovandal) met on the battle fields shortly after Halo 2 was released. Talking incessantly over Xbox-Live led to an exchange of phone numbers to coordinate playing times, which led to spending more time on the phone than in the game. They started officially dating in March 2005 despite having never met, and that summer Desirai moved down to Florida, where she had both a new school and a boyfriend waiting. …read more
One of the gifts I received this Christmas was Guitar Hero – Aerosmith edition. I must say it is quite entertaining to play and I just finished beating the game on easy level, so now it’s time for medium and bring on the blue notes.
Continuing the ongoing discussion that’s already been started here is whether or not it’s appropriate for younger audiences like my 9 yr old son and 6 yr old daughter.
It was about a year ago this time that I wrote that post so my kids were a year younger as well. I don’t want to say …read more

CodyG from the Windows Team recently stopped by the blog and left a comment on an earlier post of mine where I was asking about extending my media experience to my Xbox 360.
In the comment he let me know I didn’t need to buy anything to accomplish what I wanted, I could use Windows Media Player 11 to share the music from my PC so that it was accessible on my network to be picked up and streamed from my Xbox 360. On top of music I’m also able to share photos and videos as …read more
I was recently chatting with Jyle Dupuis who blogs over at Xboxxer.com about how he’s using the Media Center Extender on his Xbox 360 to stream music and movies right out to his living room.
This is something I’ve been wanting to do, but just haven’t had the energy or enough desire to pursue the task. Jyle let me know that I would need Media Center Extender installed on the desktop for it to work natively, which I don’t have. I don’t really feel like installing it on that computer either as it’s the one my son uses for himself …read more

Microsoft and Xbox have finally taken advantage of what a game console in the living room can mean to a family that enjoys spending time together and using technology.
A few months ago I was thinking about how gaming consoles could really be taking advantage of an area that to me seems obvious. You’ve got the ability to have four controllers, why not make more games that let 4 people play games together, specifically families?
Screenlife Games has finally released a version of their addictively fun game Scene It? for the Xbox 360. I don’t know if …read more
