By Louise . June 8, 2007 . 4:03pm

  Being new to Xbox Live, I was a bit apprehensive about playing an FPS like Shadowrun against actual people.  Sure, the tutorial chapters did a good job of introducing me to the game, but playing against bots isn’t the same as playing against living, breathing people.  For a game whose main focus is multiplayer […]
