Dead or Alive Ultimate!

OK, so coerced two buddies back east into buying or renting DOA Ultimate, and just got off about an hour or so of playing (We were playing Burnout 3 earlier, then I went to get dinner while one of them went out to buy DOAU). I gotta admit - I don't know how they did it, but DOAU seems to play flawlessly across the internet. I only saw two incidents of slowdown - and one of those was when the host quit the game (mid match).

You can have up to eight (I think) players, playing 1 on 1 winner stays matches. The others observe and have full voice capability, so it's startlingly close to having a bunch of friends in your living room playing and passing the controller back and forth. We had three Xboxes, with two people rotating on one of the Xboxes - for a grand total of four people playing.

If you have an Xbox and you have Xbox Live - go buy DOAU - it's just that simple. Then drop me a line - my GamerTag is ChromaticGnu (long story there, I'll tell it some other time).

In other news, my NaNoWriMo wordcount is at 9374. But I need to be over 10K, so I'm going to go fix another another drink and hit the productive words. Y'all be good while I'm gone, hear?
