360 Fanboy asks, what are you playing?

Here at Xbox 360 Fanboy, we get so caught up in news about games that haven't even come out yet, we sometimes forget about all the games that are available right now. So, just as a change of pace, what's everyone playing right now?

Currently spinning in my 360: Dead Rising, Prey, and the F.E.A.R. demo (you can read about that last one later today). On arcade, lots of Pac-Man (fiancées love it!), UNO (still the number one choice for Joystiq/Fanboy editorial meetings), and Street Fighter II (36 wins, 29 losses, thank you very much).

That's what I'm rockin'. How about you?

1. Having lots of fun on GRAW, clan matches is really what keeps me playing for the competive edge. Dead Rising got too repetitive and Saint's Row is going to keep me busy.

XBLA is going to be Texas Hold'Em...it's so much fun to take your friends money...so far I'm 296,210 in the hole!

Tell me how you're playing F.E.A.R!? Let me guess...it's on the OXM demo disc O.O

2. Bullet Witch(just got it 2 hours ago), Oblivion, and PGR3. PACMAN!!! and Texas Hold 'em, man I totally sucked at that game. Seems like Atari is handling the Bullet Witch NTSC-J versions. Not sure when you will get your copy released stateside.

3. I been playing Dead Rising non-stop since it came out. I have 45/50 achievements. :)

4. Madden! It's almost football season and I just can't get enough, the game could be better but its good enough to give me my football fix until the season starts.

5. Currently a bit bored...

Finished Kameo, Condemned, most of Burnout:Revenge, Amped3, Cloning Clyde and I've pretty much gotten totally bored of all the arcade titles 'cos they're all retro which i don't greatly like. Will sit down to try to get some points out of PDZ, in the meantime I'm playing around with the Lost Planet Demo (still) and a bit of Just Cause, with some N3 demo thrown in for the hell of it. Alot of gametime has recently gone into 1-upmanship in HexicHD modes, man that's competitive stuff.

Might look into getting N3, Saints Row but definitely psyched about Enchanted Arms... reminds me of FF7 for some reason ;)

6. Well...Madden and Texas Hold'em are taking up the bulk of my time, but we sat up a 10 week nascar style points racing season for PGR3 to take us through to Forza 2 and that's made that game MUCH more fun than it's ever been.

7. Texas Hold'Em! this fun "free" game been taking up alot of my time, even took me away from dead rising :o

Posted at 10:08AM on Aug 28th 2006 by StormLord 0 stars

8. Madden and NCAA 07, Texas Hold'em and Gun. Just completed Prey single player, that multiplayer was bad.

Posted at 10:12AM on Aug 28th 2006 by IceBurgh 0 stars

9. Playing LOTR:BFME II (rental) and NCAA '07. Plus some Texas Hold'em and Cloning Clyde (my son's favorite).

Anybody else see a patch come up for NCAA '07? Any idea on what it fixes?

10. GRAW online co-op, 20+hrs/week.

I think it's going to be like this until Splinter Cell and Mass Effect come out.

Posted at 10:22AM on Aug 28th 2006 by jc 8 stars

11. Madden 07
Geometry Wars

...I don't have time for anything else.

12. Beat Prey over the weekend, was renting it for a week. Playing Dead Rising, Oblivion (can't get enough), Just Cause Demo, Guitar Hero (PS2), Tales of Arcadia (PS2), Castelvania whatever (DS)and waiting patiently for next week's release of the first J-RPG on Xbox360, Enchantment Arms.

Posted at 10:33AM on Aug 28th 2006 by blankwave 0 stars

13. F.E.A.R demo as well (on OXM disc).

Posted at 10:35AM on Aug 28th 2006 by blankwave 0 stars

14. Oblivion and Texas Hold 'Em. Looking forward to Splinter Cell and NHL '07.

15. Aw, hell. I completely forgot about other systems (this is 360 Fanboy after all).

On DS I *finally* picked up Advance Wars DS. I recently played through Eternal Darkness again, too. One more play through and I'll get the "real" ending.

When I get more time (and courage) I'm going to go through the original Silent Hill as well. I've never gotten the good ending before.

16. Chromehounds, despite it's thousands of flaws

Texas hold 'em cause it's very relxaing and great to hang out in.

Dead rising in small bursts. I still haven't beaten sniper Carlito.

I've gotten in two games of Mdden in a week. Everything from the menus to the game are just too broken for me to get into it. NFL 2K5 was more next-gen.

If anyone here still needs a squad for Chromehounds look me up. Puh Fifer

17. Let's start off by saying "Nothing in the 10 days" only because my second 360 is DEAD and I'm waiting for the Cardboard Coffin to arrive this morning!! But as for the post Dead Rising, Chrome Hounds and PREY (Three AWSOME Games). I WILL be playing Madden,EnchantArms, N3 and Saints Row when I get the system back!! Can't wait!!!

18. Right now I've been playing a lot of Quake 4 online. It's a totally under-rated game on the 360. On top of that I've been enjoying some Chromehounads, and more recently Dead Rising.

19. My 360 has been pretty dry in terms of gaming, lately. I've been playing a bit of LOTR here and there, some PGR but that's it.

I've also been putting a lot of time into Texas Hold Em (Though, looking at my bankroll of -50,000 I'm obviously not getting any better).

20. I just got done with Fight Night Round 3 (for the achievement points) and have been battling to the tenth of a second on Marble Blast Ultra with my friend in Japan. It gets harder to top each others score after a few weeks. Suprisingly I haven't even touched Dead Rising, with the touchy save system its not easy for me to pick up and play for a few minutes.
