I can't seem to come to a decision on what game to buy first on Xbox One. I want BF4 but heard there were problems with crashing and errors. I don't know if this will happen on the x1. So any suggestions?
Which game to buy first for Xbox One?
Depends on which kind of genre you like. Forza is gonna be forza so it's gonna be a great racing game but if you're not a racing fan then it's probably not a great choice. Dead Rising seems good from reviews but they're saying that there are some technical problems with the game. Still waiting to see what the final say is on Ryse. That could be interesting. AC4 is really good and probably looks really nice on next gen. Wish there were some more launch titles to choose from.
I'm a racing fan but not enough to be my first choice. I'm think I'm going to decide between DR3, BF4, AC4, and COD Ghost. Then there is the decision on the fact that battlefield and call of duty have multiplayer to keep me entertained for awhile and dead rising 3 and assassins creed 4 doesn't. I'm sure ac4 has multiplayer but the last one didn't keep me wanting to play it.
Honestly, it depends on what type of game you want to play.
Personally I'm going with Dead Rising 3 because I love the series. I'm avoiding all multi-platform games until I know which system I prefer using the ps4 or xbox one.
I am waiting to see some Ryse reviews before I pull the trigger on that. Personally I think the combat looks like fun in the same way as Batman or Assassin's Creed but I'm thinking it might be a bit too shallow.
Im not going to buy an Xbox One, but if I did have enough money I would get Zoo Tycoon with it. I still remember playing zoo tycoon 2 on my home computer. I spent all my money on building gaming computer last year and just recently bought a ps vita, xbox 360 and a PS4. It makes be feels very stressed out that I almost skipped the last generation and am catching up on them Halos and gears of war while I also want to play the new gen consoles and PC stuff too.
Damn you DICE. Well, there goes any chance of multiplayer this weekend. Hopefully downloading the patch and setting up won't be an issue on Friday. That's what I'm worried about. Microsoft and their 300K servers better be up to the task.
The crashing and errors I've heard about EA has said was related to the 1.5 patch on the PS4 not necessarily the games problem.
I'm grabbing Forza 5 and probably Dead Rising 3 for it. Eventually I'll get AC4 but I haven't decided for which console.
Forza 5 seems to be the best bet, but why not wait until more reviews come out?
Forza 5 is my only pre-order. I've enjoyed every game in the series and I've been a fan of console-style sim racing games since Gran Turismo 3.
The review thread on this board has me considering a Dead Rising pre-order as well, but I think I'll still hold out for a demo/rental on it. I'm not much of a fighting game fan so I'll probably only check out the FTP version of KI and I'm not at all sure that Ryse will be worth playing even as a rental.
For the multi-platform games, I really want to wait to rent/demo the games on X1 and PS4 to see which looks/plays better, see how well the overall systems work and what is most pleasant to use on a regular basis before I decide which platform to get a given game on.
I was in a bit of a pickle game-wise for the Xbox One cause I pre-ordered my games separately from my console. My box was ordered through Amazon so I'll be getting it on Friday. Unfortunately, I ordered Dead Rising 3 and Ryse through a different store and they won't ship until Thursday via slower ground shipping with an ETA of five days. I was super bummed out so I went to a Gamestop yesterday and this happened:
I totally know I just bought the same exact game I have bought three years in a row, but fuck it, its a launch and I know I like the COD formula.
Edit: I'm no doubt getting Crimson Dragon as well. Rest assured, that will be the first thing I do when I plug in my box. Panzer Dragoon 4 lyfe.
I picked up a PS4 last week and got my multi platform on with that (Need for Speed, Ass Creed, and Battlefield 4). So, for the Xbox One I am gonna go exclusives off the bat (Dead Rising 3 and Forza 5). I got a free code for Killer Instinct from Microsoft and I will probably tack on LocoCycle or Crimson Dragon despite the bad press.
@finaldasa: that makes me feel better about BF4.
I pretty sure financially I'll be able to get 2 games now and came to a decision to go with Dead Rising 3 and Battlefield 4. Assassins Creed 4 looks so tempting though.
Uhm, EA/Dice already retracted their statement about the 1.5 firmware. The issues are totally on their end. They still haven't fixed the PC side of things either. I would expect BF4 to be hot garbage on Xbone, just like it is on PS4 right now.
