360 Pickup: Halo 3 and Rise of a Ninja
posted on 07.31.08 at 02:20 PM EDT by (@salromano)

Well, I just picked up my Xbox 360 and I currently own the following titles: Gears of War, Test Drive Unlimited, Halo 3, and Naruto: Rise of a Ninja. My two new games are of course Halo 3 and Naruto: Rise of a Ninja. Considering the 360 support is new to the site, this is the first chance I’ve had to play my own Xbox 360.

I’ve literally only played Halo 3 once or twice in my life before I bought my copy, and as I was playing with my girlfriend last night, she was kicking my ass hard. You can go ahead and say I suck, or we can be nice and say I’m working out the kinks. The online is really solid, and I’ve seen people with the Ninja Gaiden-like armor which I’m really looking forward to obtaining. I’m really loving the character customization options. I’m happy I picked this title up as I’m enjoying it quite well and I’m seeing what the hype last year was all about. Although, I don’t think it was worth THAT much hype.

My second game I’ve picked up was Naruto: Rise of a Ninja. I’m not really a fan of the Naruto series, but I needed a good ninja game, and after playing the Ninja Gaiden II demo, I wasn’t really interested. This game is also fun, but I’m still in the beginning. I’ve just learned the double-jump ability and am doing some missions for the villagers (who can get a bit annoying with their coin requests). Just as Halo 3 though, I’m happy I picked this up as well.

And these two games are the start of my real Xbox 360 gaming. I’ve already beaten Gears of War twice, and Test Drive Unlimited gets boring at times. Just thought I’d share this experience with you readers. If you see a ShayLenz on the site, be sure to drop her a friendly hello.

    Well Congrats on buying a 360. I love all the systems I own PS3, 360 and Wii. So I can say buying a 360 is not a bad choice. If you are into games like Viva Pinata that is really fun. Mind you if you are looking to pick that up I would say just wait until the second one. I liked one but now I am looking forward to the next. Also if you are into games like RPGs when Fable 2 comes out it should be pretty good. The first was alright but from what has been shown 2 looks like it is adding a lot more. So again Congrats.

    Ah, Sal got whooped! haha

    I personally dont like Halo 3 or any Halo game for that matter. Just not my style and I dont like the gameplay. Gears is more along my style if I were to get a 360.

    third person shooters are just that much better ;)
