No, not the ace snowboarding game that rocked on the N64. The 360 is now back downstairs in my front room, on the HD TV with 1080p. Playing FIFA 09 last night ensured that the Xbox has been No Nailed to the TV unit. It's never going back. Now I don't know what to start playing, or downloading. An old colleague of mine said Left 4 Dead is amazing in co-op.
First things first though, and that's to see what's downloadable at the moment. Even my missus wondered what she can play. I mentioned Bomberman, and she said she remembered that from years ago. Anyone got any other suggestions for female-friendly multiplayer gaming?
What I do know is that this DS game sounds amazing for Nintendo's little wonder. Quite why I want it I don't know, especially considering I've never finished GTA IV on the 360.

For all those who read this, a belated happy New Year to you all.
Gaming over Christmas consisted of a few matches of FIFA 09 when my Live connection survived long enough, and playing my way through the Be A Pro mode as Southend. I’m currently sitting second in League 1. I’m also a third of the way through Gears of War and am up to the level where you have to shoot the petrol cans to light your path. It’s probably been a while since anyone can remember that game! My missus has been enjoying Brain Training, and I was also hammered by my niece on Wii Sports Bowling.
My downloads have consisted of the Street Fighter IV trailer, which looks sweet, and I’ll also be checking out Resi 5 when the demo’s released a week on Monday. GameLife has the full story here.
IGN reckon the DSi is heading to US stores on April 4 for $180/£123. Full rumour after the jump and GTA V is expected very soon.
