The hunt begins (again)

Not the most descriptive title, I know, but bear with me on this :p

Lately, I seem to have run short of things to play - I've pretty much lost all interest in WoW for the time being, and CS:S/TF2 (when not playing with friends, that is) become extremely boring to play, very quick.

So, that leaves me wanting to find something new to keep myself occupied when I have nothing better to do, and I'd like some suggestions regarding some reasonably good game(s) that are out there.

Currently, I've got the Xbox360 and, obviously, a PC and I'm not really pushed about genre, although shooters and RPG's would be ideal :p I've been looking around for stuff (preferably on Xbox), but I can't see much that grabs my attention, other than perhaps FF XIII.

So, does anyone have any recommendation on any good PC/Xbox360 games that are available at the moment (doesn't necessarily have to be something recent) because at this point, I'm pretty much stumped.

Hehe, of all the games mentioned, I think Homeworld 2, Mass Effect and Red Dead Redemption are the only ones I don't have already.

Mass effect is pretty fun but it isn't really challenging.
Isn't really challenging? So, would it be easy/very easy, or simply average, in difficulty?

Red Dead Redemption or GTA4 are good time killers.
Well, my cousin bought Red Dead Redemption so I can try the game out sometime when he's around :p From what I've heard, it sounds pretty cool though.

go old school.. max payne 2.
Hmmm, I'm gonna have to dig that one out of the attic :D

There is always the battlefield games
Which ones, in particular? BC2 seems pretty fun, although the reviews I've read suggest that the guns are very inaccurate which sounds a bit crap - would that be true, and does it 'work' for the game if it is true?

I have now changed this in the User CP
Fallout 3, Borderlands for shooting/somewhat RPGish
Darksiders is a semi long game, and is VERY similar to God of War

I am yet to try it, but it has been like that in all games and that is somewhat how it should be, if you just stand still and shoot bursts the weapons almost never miss for me in any of the other BF games and that is just realism:)

BC2 is good, it actually has pretty much replaced COD for me. The guns kinda look bad in it, but that`s just a small thing. The aiming is realistic enough, with snipers if your quite far away you have to aim above the target since gravity will drop the bullet, and if the target is moving you have to lead them, that is, aim ahead of them. I find it pretty fun and challenging until you get the hang of it, but it is a fun game.

    In the GIF, I've configured it so the lower the "Main Value" is, the better. I had to compress it pretty far down though.

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
