Winning Alterac Velley for the first time in a week, three times in a row, has put me in a good mood. Soon be able to buy a battlecharger or some much-needed purples. :D

:lol:

Really accelerating to 80 now and had my first tilt with Ulduar/Halls of Lightning today which went fairly well.

Also, Anyone ever installed games to their 360 and if so, does it run as smooth as if it were off disc?

I believe the point of it is that it runs smoother than off disk. Never bothered with it myself though..

Ah, fair enough. My plan is, that despite my poorness, I could buy arkham asylum, install to 360, then return it...

Unfortunately you still need the disk in the drive to access the hard drive version, if you get me. To stop exactly that from happening I guess :lol:

I don't think there's much advantage to installing games on the hard drive, takes up like 8gb of space as well. The 360 runs quieter and a little faster but that's it. Don't bother installing Halo 3 either cos Bungie reckons it slows the game down somehow

What about Halo 1? That game was actually awesome for multiplayer, I still play it on PC sometimes :D

That's actually better than the 360/ps3 version.
