You should seriously try XLink Kai and/or XBConnect. Almost nobody play's on Gamespy(ware) anymore. Too bad that only Halo 2 is mostly played on XLink Kai and XBConnect.

You should give those two a try, though. tongue.gif

I like playing online but I get so sick and tired of finding no one playing anything new for more than a day or two.

It seems majority of people just play Halo 2 all the bloody time.

Yes, I don't understand either. In my opinion, Halo 2's gameplay is... well, limited. It gets boring pretty quick.

I need to check whether SW: Battlefront 2 is played on XLink KAI. It seems like a pretty good game to play online.

Yeah I remember using Xbox Tunnel. But it was like one of the first tunnel programs. I remember using it in the days xbox first came out and I was about to get xbox live the first day it was coming out :-/

I think I have played Halo 2 once for about 10 minutes.

Battlefield 2 is only Xbox Live, I haven't heard of an EA game that has system link capabilities. Maybe I am wrong.

Still xLink is a great system, I have been on Far Cry a few times recently.
