Finally Xbox 360 time

The timing couldn’t better. Having just completed my first book (Yahoo! Maps Mashups) due on shelves February 12, Amazon decided to offer up 1,000 Xbox 360’s at the bargain price of $100 clams. And wouldn’t you know it, I was able to snag one.

I haven’t been completely abstinent from the pleasures of console gaming. Since I moved here last year, my friend Rob and I have been playing his Xbox at my place. My circulation of games has been limited to Halo 2 (rusty, but leading with grenades always helps) and MLB 2005 (to relive the 2004 Red Sox).

I’m looking for Xbox 360 game suggestions and if you want to post your Live tag, I’ll meet you in Coagulation.
