LIVE Activity for week of Nov 8

 

With all of my travel over the past few months, and the recent KINECT launch I have finally found time to get back into the groove of posting the LIVE Activity list. While the list has been on hiatus, I’ve decided to take the opportunity to think about how to make it a little more interesting. Here is the new schedule: Every other week, I’ll be posting the below list. This is the same list that you’ve come to know over the years. During the alternate weeks I don’t post this list, I’ll be posting a brand new list showing activity on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace, specifically the top items purchased. This new schedule will allow me to show a new dimension of LIVE Activity. Look for that new list next week.

So, without further delay, here is what you and you friends were playing on Xbox LIVE last week:

    Yay! List is back! But I’m really surprised that Black Ops and MW2 have the top two spots with Reach at 3. I figured Black Ops would be first, but I did NOT think MW2 would be second.

    Wow. COD double pwning Halo Reach. I’m kind of surprised that Game Room is still in the top 20 for Arcade.

    @BHZ The game, Black Ops, launched on the 9th so it is logical that many people gave Modern Warfare 2 “one last hurrah” that Monday. I expect Reach to take slot 2 next week.

    Nice to see Fallout New Vegas is underperforming below Fallout 3; a lot of people must have finally decided to just quit playing because of the bugs and glitches and crashes (I certainly did). The people still playing are in for a rude awakening when it corrupts their saves…

    @Foxhound That’s true. We’ll have to see until the next list (which remember, won’t be for two weeks).

    @jchapman Yep, I’m one of them. Fun game but when I’m forced to redo the last 12 hours of my game, that definitely turns me off. I’ll get back to it eventually.

    I knew Halo: Reach wouldn’t last long,It was just halo 3 all over again. No surprise with black ops being at the top.

    @LEGENDARY TOAD
    are you serious? if you think that reach is anywhere close to halo 3 you are not very observant. to name a few things: armor abilities, reticle bloom, new weapons, vehicles, firefight, slower pace, challenges, commendations, and the list goes on. i don’t know how you could say it is halo 3 all over again. and the fact that you say because halo reach is similar to halo 3 is the reason why it fell to number 3. then why are 4 separate call of duty games in the top 9 games? huh?? that shows that people want and play the “same game” over and over again. that is quite possibly the dumbest argument i have ever seen anybody make on this site.

    Really guys? MW2? Everything else I am okay with but MW2 shouldn’t be up there. I am just going to assume it is people who wanted to get back into a CoD game before Black Ops released.

    Couple of questions about the lists.

    1 – Does it cover Monday through Sunday or Sunday through Saturday.
    2 – Are the lists reflective of worldwide activity and sales or just US?

    @ LEGENDARY T0AD I chex mix ho I does have a point though, and your instantly calling him a Halo fanboy after that instead of countering his argument isn’t really helping your case.

    As far as the list goes, I understand Black Ops being first, but MW2, of all games, in second? And above Reach? This list must be wrong.

    Nice to see three Radiangames in the Indie top 20. The man makes some real gems, I recommend along with Nuclear Wasteland.

    C’mon, folks, the listings are as they are. And as the saying goes: it is what it is. We’ll just have to accept it. Life still goes on and the grass is still green. Let’s not get too personal as such. We’re all fighting for the same thing here. Better games. Despite our preferences.

    Black Ops is the best CoD since CoD4. MW2 is garbage, how is it still top two? Reach was disappointing. Halo 3 is still the best MP FPS on 360 IMO. If anyone likes running MLG/Snipers customs or playing MM, send me a FR.

    For all the people that feel the need to post “How is MW2 still above game X?” every time these lists come out. Print the following statement out and reference it right before you view these lists and comment each week. “Modern Warfare 2 is more popular than my personal friends list indicates. There are a lot more people that like and enjoy the game than I’m willing to acknowledge. I have accepted that this weekly occurrence will no longer surprise me every week.”
