Cool features include:
- Reviews of Xbox 360 sports games (they link to the Xbox Canadian website)
- NHL Playoffs Simulation (I won't ruin the surprise if you haven't seen it, but I will say that a certain Canadian team made it to the finals)
And by far my favourite feature:
You can play the TSN LIVE Gamer at 7:30 on the last Thursday of every month. In April, the the chosen game was NHL 08, and at the end of the gaming session the TSN Live Gamer posted memorable highlights of the games. The next match-up is on May 29 on XBox Live, and is expected to be one of the following games: FIFA Street 3, Euro 2008, or MLB 2K8.
But be warned, according to the website:
"When it comes to sports video games, TSN Live is a bag of tricks. An easy-going,mild-mannered gamer one day, but push the right buttons, TSN_Live can be easily transformed into a lean, mean, butt-kicking machine."
Sounds badass to me.
One piece of advice: In order to play TSN on Xbox Live you need to add the gamertag "TSN LIVE" - without an underscore. Just to confuse you, on the website they use TSN_Live twice that I can see.
Maybe the TSN Live Gamer wanted to confuse us before the game in order to get the psychological upper hand. And here I thought Rick Flair was the dirtiest player in the game!
