XBOX One master topic
I bought the Gears of War 500GB bundle. Grin I'm now figuring out what my first game will be. :)

Sweet. Grin I'll probably get my Xbox One next month or something like that. I was looking at the Gears of War Special Edition Bundle (the White Xbox One) or the 1TB Holiday Bundle (Gears of War, Ori and The Blind Forest, and Rare Replay) coming out in November.

That's awesome Phil. My buddy's going to get his probably this weekend. I cannot wait to try the XBOX 360 backwards compatibility (next month?). I'm also looking forward to Fallout 4.

RE: Bought an XBOX One
I'm half tempted to get Shadow of Mordor but I seem to have reservations for some reason. The Game of the Year edition is $40 so the price isn't too bad. I just don't want it to suck...

RE: Bought an XBOX One
I can certainly say that it's a pretty good game and it does not suck at all, the only downside is that it's pretty short, I think I have something between 12 und 15 hours playtime on steam.

RE: Bought an XBOX One
How can it be so short being open world?

Maybe if you only do the main quests and not go exploring very much?

So what genres are you looking into?

Killer Instinct and Mortal Kombat X would be good for fighting, of course.

Open world games would be Dying Light, Grand Theft Auto V, Watch Dogs, Dead Rising 3, and Batman: Arkham Knight.

RPGs are Dragon Age: Inquisition, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, Final Fantasy Type-0, Lords of the Fallen, Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition, Witcher 3, and Elder Scrolls Online.

Shooters are Halo 5 (coming out Oct. 27), Destiny, Evolve, Sunset Overdrive, Far Cry 4, Titanfall, and Wolfenstein: The New Order.

Adventure games are King's Quest Chapter 1, Tales from the Borderlands, The Walking Dead series, D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die, Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse, and The Wolf Among Us.

I'm sure I am missing some games. But just trying to give you some ideas. Personally, my first game(s) would be Dead Rising 3, since it's one of the launch titles, meaning cheapness and I can play with my coop buddy. The other game would be Final Fantasy Type-0. It's been a while since Final Fantasy XIII, and I want to play a modern FF. Plus, Type-0 had pretty good ratings, especially the combat system. I already own Killer Instinct so that doesn't count until I have my own Xbox One. lol.

Thanks for the reply and suggestions! I'll go one genre by one. :)

Fighting games: Not really interested. Most modern fighting games are boring. If Street Fighter V comes out for the XB1 I will get it.

Shooters: There are SO many shooters it is hard to narrow it down. Farcry 4 and Halo 5 look promising as does Wolfenstein. I am going to get the Borderlands Handsome collection to play the Pre-Sequel. I have Destiny for the 360 and haven't played it at all in 2015. There are a couple of shooters that I'm forgetting that also look interesting...

Adventure games: Well, this is sort of a genre I don't have much interest in past the SNES/Genesis days.

RPG/Sandbox: You know this is a high ranking genre for me. I'm for sure interested in Fallout 4, Witcher III, Diablo III, Shadow of Mordor, and Mad Max. Hard to choose between that lot but maybe Shadow of Mordor has an edge? I am torn on Elder Scrolls Online...I hear it isn't as much fun as Skyrim nor does it look that much if any better but it does seem to be somewhat fun despite these things. I am not interested in any Final Fantasy so those are off the list. I'll most likely be beta testing Battleborn so lets hope that gives me some entertainment.

RE: Bought an XBOX One
Yeah my bad, I confused it with the time a friend of mine needed since he did nearly no sidequests. I have 45 hours on my Steam account, so maybe that'll change your mind if you're up to sidequests or special requirements like "You must not be seen" during the stealth parts.

RE: Bought an XBOX One
That helps. I love stealth. I'm not convinced about not having a first person mode but I will soldier through. :)

RE: Bought an XBOX One
You don't have to play Shadow of Mordor in first person, I think the only first person you have is when you use your bow, but otherwise it is third person as far as I can remember.

Oh, I think you misunderstood. I want to play in first person as I'm not a fan of 3rd person. Except Red Dead Redemption. :)

RE: Bought an XBOX One
Ah yes, now I see the "not" ... To my defense it's getting late or rather early in the morning here Grin

I think it doesn't matter that much if the game's well done, the third person stealth in Shadow of Mordor or Splinter Cell is pretty convenient, but the first person stealth of games like Dishonored is also very good. Third person is still easier to maintain if you have to maneuver in tight spaces though in my opinion.

No worries mate. :cool: As long as the game mechanics and control scheme are well done I guess 3rd person is ok. Red Dead Redemption is a prime example of a 3rd person game that is brilliant.

RE: Bought an XBOX One
I decided Mad Max was the first game to purchase. I bought it used for $45 and it is in mint condition so I saved $15 And I did decide to buy it used primarily to be able to return it within 7 days if I don't like it.

Took Mad Max back and got Shadow of Mordor to try. Let's see which one I like more! These are just distractions until Fallout 4. :)

You can buy a game used, finish it within 6 days, return it on day 7 and you'll get a full refund or did you sell it back?

Well I guess that counts as customer service, but it seems like a stupid business concept to me

RE: Bought an XBOX One
I think its one of those things that they would rather have a good customer experience by doing this versus being assholes and not and thus sending the customer to shop elsewhere.

On a separate note a buddy of mine who's like my brother actually bought for me Shadow Warrior and Shadow of Mordor Game of the Year edition for my birthday so I returned the used copy of Shadow of Mordor I had bought. I spent some of the remaining to pre-order Fallout 4 and I bought Mass Effect and Fracture. Grin
