Can we PLEASE get some SSBB friend code action in here? I can't connect to Chicago without a good 1.5 secs of lag, and it's making my friends think they can beat me.

Um, are these all multi-platform?

I think SSBB is Wii-only, but what about the JPRG you reviewed (Lost Odyssey)?

@2: Lost Odyssey is 360 only. Army of Two is 360/PS3. SSBB is Wii-only. I've edited the original post to reflect that.

@1: This seems as good a place to do so as any, though I've held off doing so because having to explain the absurdity of the "friend code" system to everyone else would probably make Slog readership drop by the hundreds. My Smash Bros code is 5241-1527-6245.

@3 - thanks. Dang, cause Lost Odyssey sounded intriquing.

When Ian gets SSBB we'll see if we can friend you - I'm not into it, but he and his friends are.

Is Army of 2's co-op system only available through xbox live? Or can roommates play together on the same tv and xbox? Thanks!

Hands down the best thing about Lost Odyssey was the Jefferson Airplane White Rabbit commercial. Brilliant.

SSBB friend code: 1719-2839-1694

I'll reload this thread in 16 or so hours and add all the SSBB friend codes listed here.

@5: You can have two friends in the same house, on the same screen, play that lousy game together.

Companies have still been releasing games since SSBB came out? Why?

ao2 is only six levels. you can beat it over a weekend without even trying hard. yahtzee properly eviscerated it, though i did play through it w/ my friend and it is a nice filler game to eat up some time until gtaiv comes out.

if you liked gow, you'll kind of like a02. the gameplay is a little more fluid in the sense that you don't stick to walls (i hate that). Instead, you slide into cover and can get out of cover just by walking away, not by pushing the magic "unstick me from this wall" button.

The weapons in a02 are pretty boring, in that there isn't a really big difference between them. the difference between an mp5 and a saw in cod4 is way bigger than in a02.

multiplayer pretty much blows.

i've never liked 3rd person so ao2 still pales in comparison to the gameplay of cod4. which rules all fps on the console.

but at the same time, it wasn't an _unpleasant_ experience. I played through it 1.5 times, but i haven't played it since that initial weekend and doubt i will again. so. like i said. filler game.

If only is was as easy of habit to break as something like crank.

I'm playing COD4 right now and waiting with decreasing patience for Rainbow Six Vegas 2 (delayed, ugh).

I feel bad for people that have only played an FPS on a console since they probably don't realize how laughably ineffective it is to aim with an analog joystick.

@12 - for real. and that you can see your multiplayer stats thrusts the gritty and ugly reality of your gaming habits into your face make it all the more obvious that over 2 days, x hours, and x minutes of my life have been spent doing nothing but fragging high school kids on xbl. i love it. i can't wait for the map pack.

@13 - i couldn't get into rsv, but may rent rsv2. as to your second point, cod4 is the closest to cs:source the console has. and while I agree, for some reason I enjoy playing on a console more.
