Well I finally bought an Xbox 360

xbox Box lol

Now to somehow get Xbox Live to work with this damn wireless adapter since there is no way I am running 30 meters of cable from my modem to my living room. Routers are a huge pain in the butt. When you fail the Live test despite passing every single test leading up to it and have all your ports forwarded, "More Info" should actually display, you know, MORE INFO, instead of just being blank. Right now, my strategy has been reduced to router configuration settings roulette and praying it works on reboot.

Mass Effect is really fun though. I've only played it for about 5 hours so far, but I am getting the same giddy feeling as when I played RE4 two years ago. Thanks InsaneLampShade.

Now the question is...what other games should I get?

Currently owned:
Mass Effect, Bioshock, Beautiful Katamari, Marvel/Forza bundle pack

Just FYI, I'm assuming you get a free month of Xbox Live Gold included. After it expires, you'll go back to a Silver account, and you'll need to pay if you want Gold again.

If you renew using your Xbox 360, they'll just automatically charge you periodically according to what you picked (every month, or every 3 months, or every year) and if you want to CANCEL, you HAVE to call them on the phone and talk to a customer service person.

I think I remember reading in their fine print that you can get a full refund if you picked yearly payments and haven't used up the entire year yet... but I'm not sure how much of the year you can use up before you can't get a refund..

Yeah. I made sure I chose silver membership as the default, and the gold membership should revert back to silver in a month, but I'll make sure to check.

I'd suggest Idolmaster, but I'm guessing you don't have a Japanese xbox. Honestly, since you chose Mass Effect, there's not too much else unless you like fighter planes, then there's Ace combat. Gears of War is also a system staple, and if you can stomach the thought of a plastic Guitar, I'd recommend Guitar Hero 2. You could also pick up Rumble Roses pretty cheap nowadays.
