    It's not a problem. I've got a life myself. Unfortunately, it's someone else's.:)

    I don't have enough people on my friends list to play private matches, so I have to make do with playing hormonal teenagers who take every kill as a personal insult. I'd cry if I wasn't so busy laughing.:D
    I can count the number of women I've met on Xbox Live on one hand. I don't think it's me that's driving them away.:p

    I think I may just stay silver. I'm not sure I have the self-control to deal with all lowlifes who seem to populate XBL.

    Well, I won't try too hard to dissuade you. You're probably better off staying away from the madness. I'll keep you on my friends list anyway: if you change your mind you're always welcome to join me in a match.

    Big words don't make the Live community any less annoying. Just mute the people you don't want to talk to and you'll have fun.

    I think I'll probably stay offline. Few of the games I like have a decent multiplayer option anyway.

    (And now that your console's dead there's no point at all in having me as a friend).

    From the 27th Silver Members (that sounds obscene, somehow, like a porn James Bond movie:p) will be able to play online for a couple of days. Dip your toe in and see if you like it: you've got nothing to lose. You may even be pleasantly surprised. I'm not going to go Gold until December (it's about the only time of year I can justifying splashing out money on something so trivial). I've even bought both Modern Warfare games (second-hand: I'm no fool:)): the first to get used to FPSs and the second to get slaughtered online by people with much better reaction times than me.:D

    lol. Big words. If that's your definition of big words you need to buy a dictionary. Or get an education.

    I like playing on consoles so I don't know what you're aiming at by trying to insult me....

    That being said as a uni student one doesn't need to discover girls :D

    I'll add you, though what with the family and life in general I don't have much time these days to play online. Non-teens are always welcome on my friends list, though (as well as younger folk who know how to take a joke or at least don't cry when they lose a match).
    You just came across as one of those people who think graphics=a good game. If this isn't the case, then feel free to justify DA's existence, 'cos it certainly ain't the plot or dialogue.:D

    I play on a laptop...high-end graphics is far from what I get. I just believe that certain games are for PC and certain games are for console.

    Hmm the plot is fine for me, it's not too simple nor too complex and that's fine, since I'm playing a game and not reading a book. For me it's mostly the gameplay and the mechanics implements. I'm a big DnD fan and whilst it doesn't quite utilise the DnD combat system it's really fun for me to play. Personally I find the dialogue to be quite amusing, especially between characters when you're just walking around.

    I love rpgs, whether pen and paper or otherwise. DA was a major disappointment for me, though. It's got an 18 rating, yet the way it deals with sex and death is just plain sad. As for the quests: find a monk's corpse, read his letter, prance round various locations. Are they serious? Add the fact that they released the downloadable content on the same day they released the game and this just looks like a cynical exercise in money-grubbing. They've obviously spent all their time and effort on Mass Effect 2 and released this as a stop-gap to please their shareholders.

    Well that's what questing is. I liked the fact that you actually have to read the codices to figure out the quests, some of which take a little bit of thinking unlike most games. Not quite going to agree on prancing about, since you usually have to fight stuff which is fun. Didn't really care about the whole sex thing so that's not a problem for me.

    Unfortunately, muting doesn't stop the cheats. Some people on MW2 allow themselves to be killed multiple times by a friend on the opposing team so said friend can call in a tactical nuke and rack up a mighty killstreak. There's not a lot you can do about that kind of thing except quit the game. Muting has its uses, but it isn't much cop against people who play to up their stats rather than have a good time.

    That's why Battlefield:1943 was invented. To escape the arseholes and just have a good time. It's no coincidence that most of the players on 1943 are over 20 and most of the players on MW2 are under 16. You pays your money you takes your choice. MW2 is for kiddies, 1943 is for adults. End of.
