What are you playing: Aloha edition

You may have noticed a few hints that I'm getting married soon. Well, tomorrow actually. Incidentally, that's why I wasn't in Barcelona covering X06 -- much to the dismay of many of my friends: "You should totally go, dude." But no, I'm getting married and that's more important. The point of all this is that I won't be here for a little while. I'll be enjoying the sunny skies and sandy beaches of Hawaii with my beautiful new bride (assuming we don't get rained on the whole time). As such, I won't have time for posting, because I'll be ... busy. Of course, Ken will still be here and Joystiq's own Chris Grant just might be popping in as well.

On a personal note, I really hope you have all been enjoying our new energy around here. Some of you may have guessed that this is now my full time job, and I'm taking it seriously. We're going to be growing X360F like crazy and all of you are a part of that. That means more community, more posts, more everything. We want to know what you like, what you don't like, and if you think something is bull, by all means call us on it. Stick around, it'll be worth it.

So, what will I be playing this weekend? Nothing -- looks like Dead Rising will have to wait 'til I get back (just when I thought it was over ...). How about the rest of you? Hope you all have a good time. I'll see you on October 12th.

3. I didn't know I wanted Doom, but now I have it and intend to play it. I might go through the Sonic and Lego Star Wars demos again too.

4. Congratulations.

And I'll be not playing anything with you. My 360 recently took a vacation to the "Three Red Lights District." She isn't due back for a week and a half, and I miss her already *sniff*.

8. I hope your wife like gaming, but then again I guess you could alway tell you're "working". Hope the weather good for ya.

9. My 360 also entered the red light district last night. I won the beast a week before launch and it just now died on me after attempting to play The Godfather a game I didnt really want but that good ole gamefly cue sent it my way. I should have just tossed it back in the mail, because it looks like I will be without my white box for a while. I feel your pain KilgoreTrout XL. But I would still rather be without it for 2 weeks than to be waiting on that Black box from "Sorry" opps Sony. And to Richard Mitchell you have my sympathy :)

10. getting married and working for 360fanboy as a full time job? I didnt realize they paid you that much for these postings.

Anyway, congratulations. Im playing saints row still now. contemplating on purchasing doom. I want to buy it, but I only do if my freinds will play co-op with me, and I cant get any of them to buy it :(

11. I'll be driving around Oahu in my S7. If you're into racing games, give TDU for 360 a shot.

14. Congrats! Let us know how Hawaii is for a honeymoon. I'm getting married next October and we're considering Hawaii for ours.

I'm gonna be playing more Lego Star Wars II. Time to start attempting the "Undefeated" Achievements.

18. - Pal, you'll remember this day for the rest of your life.
- But... I'm marrying tomorrow, uncle!
- I know!

19. Congrats, Sense!

I see you totally kicked my score's ass in Dead Rising. Over double. LOL!

I'm still working on those damned achievements. That 7 day survival one is going to suck hard, and I can't imagine the 53k zombie killing spree will be amusing for more than 10 minutes.

20. Congrats Richard!

As for me my life is upside down as I'm moving this weekend to a new place. So, less playing for me this weekend but once I get into my new place I can finally start shopping for my new HDTV! So it's all worth it.

If I get setup in my new place fast enough I'll be playing some Chromehounds (which isn't as bad as many people told me it was) and a bunch of Live Arcade stuff too.
