Re: Xbox LIVE Update Preview (PICs)

Oh yeah... you sent me a message about this! Doesn't really look like anything I'll use, though.

Posts by me are rare occasions. I mostly hang around other places these days, but I come here every once in a while.

Re: Xbox LIVE Update Preview (PICs)

Thats what I said at first. Then I started to look around and liked some of the features and clothing. One thing that disappoints me is the Achievement Progress. It only shows that you've completed a game when have all achievements completed. But IF they add a DLC with more Achievements it's no longer considered 100%

Re: Xbox LIVE Update Preview (PICs)

Sorry, not paying for virtual clothes.

However, the Netflix party and the digital game downloads are interesting, depending on how much the digital downloads cost.

Now through May 28th, the Louisville region is in desperate need of platelets - call the Red Cross if you are interested in donating!

Re: Xbox LIVE Update Preview (PICs)

I like the netflix blade improvements, still needs a search though. It now shows newer movies and tv programs and I think some categories of video without having to add it to your NF Instant Queue. The picture quality and streaming seems to have been improved as well.

Thats about the only improvement I've used it for.

Re: Xbox LIVE Update Preview (PICs)

So you can get clothes by getting achievements in newer games? Thats cool.
This update is supposed to happen the 11th? Cool.

Thats what I said til I saw the HALO 3 stuff I'm wearing. I wish I had a few more points wear I could get some of the Monkey Island stuff.

Re: Xbox LIVE Update Preview (PICs)

Only happy about the Netflix. The Avatar stuff from game achievements will be cool, but besides 1v100 and the upcoming racing game, the avatars are still kinda pointless.

Untrue. More games will begin to feature them, I remember reading in OXM that in one of the new music games you can have your avatar on screen playing the instruments instead of a character specifically made for the game. And I bet Natal will bring stuff like Wii sports which will likely feature your avatar.

I just can't wait to be able to unlock stuff in games. Right now there is nothing that really excites me as far as clothes go, both in the marketplace and the free stuff. One day I will find (or unlock!) something I like. Hopefully.

Please reread my post.

I am looking forward to using them. But right now, only 1v100 is the only thing I ever see my avatar in.

Re: Xbox LIVE Update Preview (PICs)

I would assume that a lot of the games this fall will feature some unlockables for avatars. Mayeb get some superhero costumes from Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2? That would be cool!
