Hey, have you ever had a game that you've felt reluctant to play because you had no one to play with? Happens to me all the time. In fact, I barely use the opportunities and features of Live as I have no one to play with. Maybe it's because I feel that my skills are rather embarrassing; not too sure, but that's always a possibility.

Anyway... I just wanted to ask:
What games do you feel you'd play more often if you had a friend to play with?

EDIT: I also wanna apologize if I have placed this in the wrong forum, as I'm wondering if I should have simply placed it in the Games forum. If so, and it can be moved, I'd appreciate it.

I'm personally not too big a fan of online achievements, so that usually sways me away from some games. But I would have been playing RSV2 a long time ago if anyone on my friends list had been playing it.

I also feel discouraged by games with an astounding amount of online achievements, but I guess that's one reason why Xbox Live has the largest online community.

As for RSV2, I felt discouraged by the online and vision camera achievements, and thus, I decided not to purchase the game. >_<;;

That's funny. I think the only games I can play with someone else, on a shared console, are Rock Band and Scene It!. Both of which I play with my mother, though rather rarely.

As for my friends on live, they all play Halo 3 and CoD4. v_v

You can do the endless setlist on xbox live? I didn't know that.

Anyway, I was playing GRID, a racing game, but I wanted some online achievements and there's like NOBODY playing online. It sucked. :(

Now my question is... can you get the world tour achievements via Live? If so, then maybe I can be saved. My problem lies with the fact that I'm the only person in my household (1 of 2) that has the capability of playing on Expert (though I'm currently practicing on Hard via Guitar and Vocals). My mother doesn't spend enough time on it, yet also complains about the inability to practice (she gets lazy, so she doesn't wanna play), and thus, my possibilities for the Million Fan and Platinum Artist achievements are rather... lost.

If anyone could find me a way to get these on Live, that'd be great. If not, and I should pay attention to the features in game, feel free to toss glass bottles at me.

EDIT: Don't worry about it, EB. It happens. ^^

I ave soooo many games I only need to fullfill online that it isn't even funny anymore. I find i quite hard to complete these online achievements because in the mst games you need to be playing this at once otherwise you are gonna get owned.

Well, I won't be buying any games for a few months, unless I find a great deal. If by that time you guys still need the achievements, I'll see what I can do. ^^

True, but a majority of members will forget about certain games they own, and thus will not frequent particular forums. Unless they are trying to 100% of course.

I know but I don't really like asking people just to play with me. I have a select group of players which I really like to play with and have fun. But just asking random people hey do you have play a game wih me doesn't really sit right with me. Of all the players in my list I have like only 1 person from my own country and he plays GTA all day long.

I too normally feel the same way, but since joining x360a, I've had the desire to work harder when it comes to community life and making the best of my Live subscription.

Well the problem I got most was if people I never spoke or even seen there names in these forums start adding my name. Always gives kind of a creepy feeling. And of course I too want to work on online achievements. Even thought about starting a little group of 4 to 6 people just to play for achievements. And I can get random players here but I would rather have a solid group. And the friends I have now are the coolest people I've met but they mostly stick to a few games.

Shouldnt'be too hard on making a small group that can play a few times together. Most people are free in the weekends or later in the evening. I'll think about it. Best would be a European group of players. Or people that can be available on CET time.

Hey we have weekends here too. I've got friend on almost every continent and I play with older people, younger people, men, women, good people, criminals etc. And I don't know what you do in live but like I said. We can mix a lot. Some achievements need 2 people other 4 or more. We also can't all have the same games so that's why I just want a close group people that buy / rent games that are pretty common. And I'm flexable enough to buy an older game are a game that I wouldn't have thought about.

It's 400 points for Gauntlet. The only downside so far, is that I've begun falling asleep while playing.

I'm wondering what the in game high score is, as I reached 250k as the Warrior, and still no achievement.

Well, it's rather unfortunate that I'm going to be in New Jersey, with most likely a lack of an internet connection. I know for sure that I won't have access to a computer, but if I can rig my Xbox to Live, then I'll be on. As for the games I'll have, it'll most likely be the arcade games listed in my collection, and a few retail games.

My guesses are:
Marvel Ultimate Alliance / Forza Motorsport 2
Halo 3
Half Life 2: The Orange Box
Dragonball Z: Burst Limit
Beautiful Katamari
Bullet Witch
Wartech: Senko no Ronde
Two Worlds
Ninety-Nine Nights

If there's anything that's in my collection that anyone needs help with, I'll bring it in case I have the option of successfully acquiring Live.

That's the problem I have with Halo 3 now.

Well, I tried Rock Band for the first time, in Score Battle. Only problem was that after every three wins, I would lose a match by less then a thousand points. x_x

I'd like to play with friends, but they never want to. I've found that I'm skilled at Single Player on games, but I just suck online, and it makes me feel stupid. So now I like to boost all online achievements, and then stick to what I do best. A lot of my friends play COD4, but the thing with me is, I beat a game, I move on to the next.

So you kind of see you boys and girls what I was talking about. We all need some help and we all kind of suck at some parts of games. And we don't want to hoping on strangers. Allthough we all are strangers cause the most people haven't met. So that's why we started this group. And we are having a little bit of succes but with our social group active nw we should getting booming.
