New Xbox Experience

Just wondering what our fellow 360 users think of the new software update. It's OK, the avatars faces aren't as customisable as the Miis on Wiis, but the clothing choices help.



My avatar was a Ziggy Stardust homage until I changed my theme to GTA and decided a Niko-alike would be a cool idea. His clothes from the Russian shop seem to have been added to the initial clothes line up.

I like it, it feels much more responsive to navigate and content seems to be easier to find.  It is a little like a "new console" that plays all my old games!

The Avatars are a bit of fun too...  I have gone for a "realistic" look (ish!)

That's a very camp pose! ^^^^

Like I said I went for realistic...

I haven't checked it out. Will give my comments when I do.

(Bit hard lately. It's the school holidays here now and as a result, my younger brother hogs the machine the whole damn day)

I have never owned a games console.

Im reasonably impressed with it.  At the minute it seems overly complicated but i imagine it will eventually be second nature.

Wonder if you can transfer your wii mii to the internet somehow.

I don't think so, it will have to be a digital camera job...

That's a shame - thanks for looking though.

No worries.

I'm looking forward to payday tomorrow so I can put some Xbox points on my account and buy that avatar game A Kingdom for Keflings. Looks like it might be fun to order minions about with three other avatars over live.

Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix looks like it'll be worth buying, too.

What's an X-Box?

I dunno about Baird, but I have heard of Braid

What's it like? A platformer?

A Kingdom for Keflings is good fun. It's cool to use your avatar and also have to juggle the jobs the Keflings actually do, to gather the required resources to build your town.

Yes its a 2d platformer, but exceptionally well done.  The music is gorgeous and teh graphics are beautiful too.  You cant die, you can rewind time like Prince of Persia and re-attempt what killed you.
Matt

I might check it out on the free trial

Here's my latest avatar. If you go to change appearance and let the controller sit for a minute, the hairstyle tab will spin and you get access to a page of brighter colours for the hair.

This would be me.

"him" I noticed earlier when I downloaded Sealife Safari that you already had it. Stunning graphics for an arcade game. Well worth the price. Do you play it or is your little'uns? If so, then don't I look daft!

Matt, I have played it on my own...  

But mainly they play it!  Feeding Frenzy (1&2) are other favourites of theirs!
