Re: The X-Box 360 thread

My post copied form the PS3 thread, and hey! The first line still applies!

The last reply in this thread was almost a month ago, and my question is kinda different, so here goes nothing~~~
I've been in Lausanne, Switzerland studying abroad from the United States for the last two weeks and I'll be here till the end of the month. Anyways between visiting the various areas and enjoying the Swiss nightlife, I've been wondering if there was any active fighting game scene here such as gatherings to play games like Tekken, SF4, Guilty Gear, BlazBlue, TvC, etc. I'd like to see what the gaming community is like here. Near me at the Lausanne Gare there's an arcade called Quanta that I've seen but it seems the only thing people play there is DDR and ITG. I've also seen a internet cafe at Riponne but it seems 1. Desolate 2. Only World of Warcraft and CS:S players there.
I found that the UK has a huge gaming community and they all post on Neoempire so I was seeing if there was anything similar in the Swiss area but this is the closest I've come to finding anything.
Anyways, any information would be helpful. I'm already going to miss this country when it's time to leave.
Thanks.

Hi mate.
Well i would say that switzerland has almost none fighting game comunity/Activity. At least for 2D fighting games(ST, KOF, BB etc). For tekken and 3d i thing it has some around . I really like 2D fighting games, if you play on line over Xbox or PS3, please add me as Karamutengo.
If you dont play on line on any console we can still play som SNK games on line over GGPO.

Re: The X-Box 360 thread

Hey thiagogita, thanks for the reply.
Sadly since I'm just visiting Switzerland for the month I don't have my consoles, I'll look into GGPO and let you know if I can get anything working for myself. Is that the client that lets you play Guilty Gear XX #Reload online?

Ggpo is really easy to use. And really stable. I have also this GG on line, but not 100% funcional with windows 7
I have also other games that "work" on line with some tricks.
Melty Blood, Akatsuki BK, etc etc :=)

Re: The X-Box 360 thread

Hmmm, well I just realized that it's all a moot point anyways because I don't have controllers or anything on me, I guess that's why I was looking for a playgroup of some sort so that I could use whatever was available at the time. Oh well thanks again anyways your information was helpful. I will add you when I get back to the US and we can get some games in of something.

Re: The X-Box 360 thread

I've decided to get a couple of gaming chairs, specifically the Loungepod but can't find them over here. Anyone seen them etc over here?

check out toppreise.ch. They will list some companies that will deliver. There are also various gaming stores around to pick one up.

Maybe about 300chf approx

That's just not fair.
Not the being downloaded part...thats gonna happen anyways.
The part about select members of press and some reviewers getting a hold of a copy SO EARLY !

Think I need to change me line'o work.

Re: The X-Box 360 thread

When I was younger, I used to review games for a now-defunct Playstation website. Internet journalism was still new in the late 90s and the developers helped us out as much as they could. I can't tell you how much of a thrill it was for me as a 13 year-old kid to get a game in the mail for free and ahead of release.

Problem is, when your hobby becomes an obligation, it takes almost all of the enjoyment out of it.

Agreed.
And if you have to review crap games...then it becomes even worse.

But then again, would be nice if it could be done on the side.

Re: The X-Box 360 thread

Does anybody have a used Xbox 360 that they are looking to get rid of? I am not interested in playing games rather streaming Netflix through it (I've heard that this is possible with a US Xbox live account on a XBox located here in Switzerland. Any confirmation on this?)

Thanks.

Did you order the legendary edition ?

I went looking to pre-order it in english, but the only place where they have it in english is softridge and they said they have all their pre-orders filled. More not possible.
