casualimp said:I'm on the fence as far as gaming goes lately. Gaming feels solitary to me now when I'm on a console in front of the TV. None of my friends are into the gaming thing so any hardware I have seems to be going to waste. I'm debating of just doing a few PC upgrades and playing online. There's nobetter gamer rush to me than fragging someone you don't know and picturing them swearing in front of their PC. This makes me sound a bit crazy doesn't it?
casualimp said:Thanks Cassidy, that was really informative. Now as to online gaming with the Xbox 360 (which I'm strongly considering of getting in the new year when prices go down) can you setup your online via a wireless router? I only have max G so I guess I'd have upgrade to an N based router, wouldn't I?
casualimp said:Well I lucked out on the trade in. About $228.6 total which wasn't too bad. As to your question. I feel less immersed in the experience if the graphics aren't that good, especially if I know there's a better looking version on another platform. So I've decided (final this time ) to save up for an Xbox 360. It's the only company I haven't tried yet and after speaking to the guys at eb games I'll be able to hook it up it my room next to my PC, thus closer to the router for online play. I think I'm getting a widescreen LCD monitor for Christmas so that'll totally be more immersing (even if I have to switch the dvi cords when I want to play). So, by February, March I should have a cool setup if I'm lucky.
