GXP Blog has been on facebook for a while, but until recently it’s fair to say that we haven’t really made much use of it. There’s also a GXP Blog twitter account, but at the moment I just don’t really have time to keep up on both. Facebook is ideal for short posts and discussions on all things related to the Xbox 360. It’s great as a sort of community area, similar to having an online forum.
At the moment I’ve been using it to post about xbox 360 game deals, such as cheap pre-orders and special offers. This is mainly focussed around the UK where I live, but there are many other reasons to join in the discussion such as:
- Posting Xbox 360 deals you’ve found
- Sharing pictures of high scores, funny game glitches or creative ideas
- Arranging gamerscore-boosting events with small groups
- Sharing your own gaming tips or posting a link to your youtube videos
Who knows, something you post may even make it onto the blog..? I think facebook is a great platform to engage in the Xbox gaming community. If you are interested, please go to https://www.facebook.com/gxpblog and click on the “like” button. I look forward to chatting with you
I managed to bag myself a real bargain on this game yesterday. Deus Ex: Human Revolution for just £29.99 with a free 800MS points card at Argos (be quick, I think the offer ends on the 9th of September!). And wow, what a game!
Now I know I haven’t played through this yet so I can’t give it a review, but from what I have played so far, discussions from my friends, and reviews I’ve read online, this looks like a really special game. Right from the beginning you can see the attention to detail in how they have presented this game, the art style and the music. Sure, some of the character models and lip-syncing look a little off, but not enough to ruin the experience.
Apparently this game can be played to suit your style; you can be stealthy, or gun down everything that moves like a maniac. Personally, I keep trying to take stealthy approach, keeping to the shadows and silently taking out bad guys. At the moment, I’m pretty crap at it to be honest. I get fairly far through an area unseen, only to be spotted by someone and having to resort to shooting my way through difficult situations. I must be doing something wrong…?
