So, my friend bought me an X1

#1 Posted by micemoney (134 posts) -

Said he needed someone to play online with. Crazy. I'm a bit shocked. Xbox One was probably going to be the last of the newer consoles that I bought. That being said, of all the bashing I did on Microsoft, this thing is pretty neat. The interface is slick, and Kinect is pretty damn awesome to use when it works. I imagine it'll work better as time goes on. Very surprised on how much I like this thing. Picked up Killer Instinct, which was the game I was probably most excited for out of the console launch games. Huge fan of the original(s).

Anybody know of any good sales on X1 games? I'd like to pick up some more soon.

Tell your friend I'll play any game at any time if he buys me a console.

Sounds like your friend might be in love with you.

Or he/she has more money than they know what to do with.

...don't know of any sales right now.

Hahaha he's a good dude. He's able to live with his parents rent free, and works full time at a decent job. He already has all the new consoles, including a decked out PC. I guess he opened up a Amazon credit line and played santa this year. Needless to say I was beyond grateful. Didn't think I'd be with Microsoft so early this gen.

Your friend sounds like the best friend ever. Remember this when you're blowing him off for that bitch Stacy.

I will suggest Battlefield 4 if you had to pick one. But if more then one the Dead Rising 3, Max: Curse of the Brotherhood, and Assassins Creed 4. Haven't played Forza 5 but heard good things.

Who is your friend, and how do you get in on this whole being friends thing?

Seriously though, good for you. He sounds incredibly generous. Hopefully you get good use out of it, and make sure you have his back whenever you're playing online together!

That's pretty sweet. Fuck the cynics, that's just a real cool thing to do. Hope you guys enjoy some video games together.

Your friend sounds like a dick. You better trade him for one of my totally rad friends. They're way better, I promise.

You might call him a friend, but I'm pretty sure he wants the D.

FUCK. My friend came to my birthday, and I had to pay his taxi fare. Some friends you have.

Haha, I was thinking the exact same thing.

My friend lets me use his rice cooker sometimes.

My best friend sent me a text wishing me a Merry Christmas and threw in a Happy Birthday a month ahead of time because he knew he "would forget it".

Is BF4 still unplayable? All the bad press has be a bit iffy on it. I definitely want to play it though.

I've been showing my thanks by kicking his ass in KI.

Wicked dude! That's quite some friend!

As for games, I cannot recommend Dead Rising 3 any more. It's a fantastic way to kill time and it's incredibly addicting.

What a terrible situation to be in.

@vuud: scouring through forums at 8 in the morning, I did not expect to laugh this hard. Thank you kind sir

What a nice guy! I bought my parents one for Christmas to be the center of their entertainment room (mostly just for TV, Netflix/Amazon streaming, and Blu Ray). They absolutely love it even though they are normally pretty poor with new technology. They can do all the voice commands and don't need the cable, TV, sound system and Blu ray player remotes anymore. I hope Microsoft makes a push towards natural language because its not quite as easy as something like Siri without a little training.

By the way, "Xbox Bing _____" is probably the greatest command on the system. Finding out which streaming service has a particular movie or TV show and then hitting one button to rent or stream it is a huge step forward. Parsing these services was always such a hassle before, especially now that there are 4 or 5 of them.

I personally plan on getting a PS4 first, but if you're going to have one of the two new consoles right now the Xone looks to be the one with more to play. I'm talking about Zoo Tycoon!
