Table Tennis First Impressions (360)

Eurogamer has posted their first impressions of Table Tennis.
"So those are the basic gameplay mechanics of Table Tennis - but it's more difficult to describe just how much fun it is to play. When you first start playing, there's a temptation to whack balls around as hard and fast as you can, Smash Court Tennis-style. But as you get to grips with the shots and start trying out different moves, it becomes clear that more subtlety and strategic play is required - and there's nothing quite so satisfying as watching the ball you've just hit sail swiftly over the net to just nick the very edge of the table, to much groaning and often swearing from your opponent."


Outrun 2 Coast to Coast Movie Clip (Xbox)

Xboxyde has posted a movie clip from Outrun 2 Coast to Coast.
"Old-gen is still (barely) alive and gets a few new interesting from time to time. Outrun 2 Coast to Coast is one of them, even if it is one of those games that you either love or hate. Thankfully I've always loved the Outrun series so I enjoyed playing this new episode a lot. Compared to Outrun 2, this new game has much more content, be it either tracks or game modes, and should last longer than the 2-3 hours it took me before getting bored last year. A game I personally recommend, but be sure to give it a try first!"


Table Tennis Screenshots (360)

Planet Xbox 360 has posted some screenshots of Table Tennis.

Test Drive Unlimited Screenshots (360)

Voodoo Extreme and Xbox 360 - The Official Magazine have both posted some more Test Drive Unlimited screenshots.
"The Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato (a classic that goes like an OAP on ten Viagra), the DB9 Coupe and Volante (sleek new models designed for the 21st century), the 380bhp V8 Vantage (the choice of greasy middle-aged men with combovers) and the Vanquish S (an absolute beast of a machine and star of James Bond flick Die Another Day) will all appear in the game. We’ve got some beautiful screenshots of them waiting in the showroom for you to come and take them out to play."

shocker.


I'm going to wait on the reviews, I really can't stand the 2k baseball series, but I'm willing to give it a shot since mvp isn't b.c. on the 360.

Steve, I brought back the Alba pic, I know how much you like it.

QOTD: If I had a 360, I definitely would pick it up just to see how great it looks. But, I haven't been a fan of the game the last couple of years, so I haven't decided what to do. It's so hard to find rentals of games and you don't have much time with them if you do find them, so I might buy it and try it out. I'm busy with others games right now, so it isn't a big priority for me.

Forgot to put this earlier, I'm getting really interested in this Rockstar table tennis game. I've got a feeling this could really be a great sleeper pickup, especially since its just $39.99. I feel an OS table tennis league forming (that ends due to inactivity) in the near future...

Yeah, it's looking like it might be fun for about a week.

I plan on picking it up for 360, even though i hate baseball with a passion! Kind of odd, isnt it?
 
# 10 ndeezlo @ 04/03/06 10:22 AM
QOTD if i buy a 360 i'll get 2k6, so probably not (unless I bail on the golf trip in May then I could probably afford it).

I'm looking forward to the 360 version. I'm still playing a lot of MLB 06: The Show, but I would sure love to play some good 360 baseball.
 
# 12 dieselboy @ 04/03/06 01:21 PM
I'll wait for reviews.
 
# 13 ehh @ 04/03/06 01:39 PM
QotD: Reserved it yesterday for Xbox, hopefully picking it up tomorrow after work.

Hopefully it's good enough that I don't have to spend $120 on a PS2 and then buy The Show.

I hope so. I don't know yet.
