    One of my crew members has an X-Box 360 that he would bring to the station all the time.
    We started playing Call of Duty-2, and COD-3 just about every night in between calls. He ended up getting us all hooked!

    Just after Christmas, I bought another 360 so we can now link the two and up to eight of us can play together at the same time. We connect the systems to 2 overhead projectors and play it on "big screens".

    I never thought I'd ever be one to buy a video game system, but I have to admit, it is a lot of fun.

    I still got my PS2. I kinda wait till the PS2 games get down to $20 or so. Right now I'm playing the crap out of Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Black. Still love playing Killzone and the first Ghost Recon.

    PS3 will have to wait some time. Next major purchase for me will be a pistol.

    What do you think of COD-3? It's in my GF queue.. as is Pinata.
    So far Vegas is really good except for some of the gun physics. I hate getting taken out by a tango with a shotgun at 100m while my AR w/scope is all over the place.

    GOW online is great. Nothing like curb stomping your coworkers.

    I love COD 3. If you ever played battlefield 2 for PC its like that with smaller maps. Great fun and you can finally pick up and enemy grenade and throw it back at them.

    Viva Pinata is like the old Sim City games I so much loved but with Pinata's.

    GOW is great but RSV and COD3 are putting it on the back burner right now.

    My XBOX Live gamertag is thebravest1. cdemarse, rdavis719, and voyager9 I'll send you a friend request tomorrow after I'm done with my 24 on the meat wagon! I stopped playing 360 when I'm on the sled. Kind of hard for me to shift from playing an intense game of Gears to checkin peckers if you know what I mean.

    My brother got a 360 and a subscription to that Gamefly mail service.

    I don't know why but i'm hooked on Oblivion too. Call of Duty 3 was awesome, until he sent it back for a different game.

    Gears of War and Halo 1 & 2 are also all time faves.

    Rainbow six is alright on-line but then you have to listen to all the 13 year old idiots talk about how good they are at a game...haha

    Amigo, Oblivion (for the PC) had completely taken over me and my sons life.

    That game is so HUGE! Thing that gets us down is you have a REAL hard time trying to play a "good" guy in Oblivion. It seems all the best quests and items even horses are all available to the dark brotherhood.

    Still, it is a GREAT role playing game.

    On the COD games we have one and two but have not tried 3. Is it avail for the PC yet? Is it as good as 1 and 2?

    I am wondering when or if you are ever going to be able to play a nazi or a japanese soldier in one of these games. Yea you can play the Germans online but not in the single player.
    What is different in 3 than 1 and 2?

    thank god there is someone else who likes gaming on this forum. i'm more into driving video games as well as firefighting. so I had an idea for a new XBOX 360 game (slightly modified from Fire Explorer/Jr. Firefighter forum thread)

    You can be a volly and drive to the station to pick up one of the fire trucks (engine, quint, aerials, forestry, ambulance, etc.) and do missions (just like GTA) but all the apparatuses would be just like it's real counterpart. I posted pictures to further explain. The city would be a fictional city called "Johnsontown". So "Johnsontown Fire/Rescue" would be on the apparatuses' doors. Engines, aerials, tankers, cars, etc. would be marked with the engine, aerial, tanker, car, etc. number on the side of the apparatus towards the back (e.g. "Engine 1", "Tanker 1", "Squad 1", "Car 1", etc.). On the ambulance, the doors will be marked with "Johnsontown". On the body of the ambulance would be "FIRE/EMS" with "AMBULANCE" written below it. On the back of the ambulance, on the sides, a blue and white star of life would be printed. Across the doors will mark "AMBULANCE" with "KEEP BACK 100 FEET" written below it. The forestry will have "JOHNSONTOWN" written on the doors and "FIRE/RESCUE" written on the body. Forestry would also be utilized as a Squad unit so it would assist in medicals.

    Pedestrian cars would pull over when vehicle is traveling with lights or lights/siren.

    You also have the option to operate the vehicle even if you do not plan on playing the missions. To activate the missions mode, then you would just have to press on the toggle.

    If you do choose to use the missions, then when a call goes out, necessary vehicles would follow. What should arrive at a scene of a medical is Squad 1 or 2 and Ambulance 1 or 2. What should arrive at a scene of a fire is 2 Engines and an Ambulance.

    When you press down on the one of the toggles, you would activate the mission that cooresponds with the truck (just like GTA). Pressing down on the other toggle would thus turn on the siren. "A" would be to accelerate the vehicle. "B" would be used to stop the vehicle. "Y" would be used to back up the vehicle. "X" would be used to activate the lights. "RT" would be used to look right. "LT" would be used to look left. The toggle would be used to steer the vehicle.

    EXAMPLES OF TRUCKS - (replace logos on trucks with the logos mentioned above) (bodies of trucks should be used, not the logos. colors should remain the same throughout every truck (all of them red except for the ambulance which is white)

    Most likely a stupid question but what is the difference between a tower truck and a ladder truck? Or is there not a difference?

    I didn't want to overdo it.

    It would surprise me if anyone who uses the word "apparatusses" has the brains to work anywhere except a McDonalds, no less work for a video game designer. You should spend a few less hours in front of your X-box and a few more hours hitting the books.

    Fine, then replace apparatuses' with fire trucks.

    (By the way Einstein, you spelled "apparatuses" wrong!)
