Xbox Live V.I.P

According to multiple rumours floating around on the internet, Microsoft may be introducing a new level of mebership to the Xbox Live.

The new mebership will be called V.I.P and will be one up from Gold. The new membership is rumoured to include:

  • Better Connectivity
  • Online Storage for content
  • New Matchmaking options
  • V.I.P Users able to send free invitations to silver members

We have no idea how much this is going to cost or if any of this information is true, hopefully we’ll find out more at this years E3.

In my opinion this is only going to make Xbox Live better, I would be more than happy to shell out a little extra money to have V.I.P status. I’m sure there will be a little bit of a retaliation from certain n00bs of the Xbox live community, but I see this as a possible improvement on the service. Only time will tell!

A Tribute To Tomo!

Just for a laugh myself and Mark96 thought it would be funny to pay tribute to long serving team member xTOMOx, by changing out avatars to match his. You can see the results of this in the image above.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas guys, have fun!

The Storm Has Passed

The team blog hasn’t been updated in a while. The last post was October 30th, the last week before the clusterfuck of games were released. From Novemeber 7th up until December we’ve had 3-4 titles being released every week, all games that have been higly anticipated. This is the main reason that there hasn’t been much in the way of updates, we’ve simply spent all of our spare time playing these new releases.

But it’s getting to the stage now when games are being released at a much slower pace, giving everyone a chance to rest and play the christmas releases. So now updates should be more frequent because more spare time will be invested into the blog.

We’ve done no clan matches, there is no major news, updates or anything like that. We’ve just been doing what we do best.. Playing games!

However you will notice that we have a new banner! Avatars were introduced in the lastest dashboard update, making the old gamercards redundant. Thefore we thought it would be best to change the banner to include our avatars! If you’re confused by whos avatar is whos here’s a breakdown:

Update [23/10/08]

[Tomo’s Saints Row 2 Character]

Just a small post to update you guys on what is going on with us right now:

Mark’s Xbox:
Mark96’s Xbox 360 gave him a E74 error and had to be sent in for repair. Fortunately he just received an e-mail saying that the console has been repaired and is now being shipped back to him. So he should be back online any day now.

The Christmas Clusterfuck:
There wont be alot posted here in the next few weeks because we’re in the middle of the Christmas Clusterfuck. A lot of our time will be spent playing new games that are being shoved down our throats over this holiday season. One of the titles due to emerge on the 7th Nov is Gears 2. When that hits we hope to be able to organize some nice clan matches, so stay tuned for those.

Saints Row 2:
Saints Row 2 was released and we all bought a copy (except for Mark96, due to the above reasons) and myself and Tomo have been murdering the co-op mode. Unfortunately Volition thought it would be a great idea to remove the fantastic game modes introduced and Saints 1 (such as Protect Tha Pimp, Blinged Out Ride & Big Ass Chains) and replace them with a mode called Strong Arm, which involves players trying to complete a mixture of activities to earn cash and win the game. Then to top it all off they removed clan support! Which really rattled my cage. We were hoping to defend our title and beat our previous leaderboard record (7th), but that’s never gonna happen now.

Anyway, moving on a wrapping up, here is something that myself and Tomo found whilst messing around in Saints 2’s co-op:

Call Of Duty 5 Beta Gameplay Footage

The Call of Duty 5 Beta was released on Friday, player who were lucky enough to reviece a beta code can download the demo on the xbox live marketplace and get a sneak peek at Call of Duty 5’s multiplayer.

I was lucky enough to recieve a Beta code and have recorded a few videos for you guys! I managed to get some good quality footage of all of the maps supplied in the Beta (3) and you can see some of the new features such as the dogs and vehicles. I also recorded the main menu and show some of the new perks and weapons you can expect to see in the full game.

There are 3 videos all together, click the link below to view them all!

(They take up too much space on the front page)

NHL 09 – EA Sports Hockey League [28/09/08]

There’s not really alot of an update this week. We’ve got plenty of stats to show but there’s no media this week. It’s pretty hard to get decent videos from an online game because of the replay system. The only time we can really get a decent video is if someone scores an OT goal, which hasn’t happened alot this week because we haven’t let any games get that far! We could of course pause the game and get a replay straight after a good goal, but the amount of time it takes to upload the video would definately piss the other team off, and we don’t want to be doing that!

Most of this weeks games have been played by just Rikoshay and Mark96, mainly because we’re online the most out of the team. But we’ve done really well this week, we only taken 4 loses out of 16 games which is outstanding!

As you can see from our player stats below, Mark is scoring alot of goals for the team which is excellent, you’ll notice he’s got 65 goals from 44 games. Congratulations dude, keep up the great work!

Unfortunately however Phill’s record has dropped alot since last week, you need to pick up the pace dude, -7 isn’t good enough!

Our game record is getting quite large now, so posting it here is going to take up alot of space on the front page, so if you want see our full game record just click over to ‘Stats‘ in the navigation bar at the top of the page. But our current overall record is now at an outstanding:

32-8-1

So that’s it for this week, sorry, no video of the week as previously mentioned, but hopefully by the next update we should have some great videos for you guys!
