I don't how I got along with gaming before I started on Live. Having finished the course and settled into the new job I decided to get back into gaming. With the 360 having sat around unloved for quite a while I bought Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 and an XBox Live subscription (to take advantage of the wireless broadband I have in the house). After getting to grips with the gameplay I decided to jump into the online play.
The first couple of games were pretty bad finishing last in the solo elimination round but as I played more, and gave up on sleep as there don't appear to be as many games hosted until the US gets online, the better I got and now it is becoming a small obsession to getting ranking points and achievements.
