Battle of the XBoxes

By Stormblade - Posted on 18 November 2014

I find myself debating buying games I don't have much interest in to justify the XBox One purchase. There aren't even any good Zombie games! Ugh.

I can not speak highly enough about Far Cry 3 and Far Cry 4 is getting similar reviews and write ups.

Some gamers have claimed that it washes the bad taste of Assassins Creed Unity away so there's that. Although it is still Ubisoft game so your mileage may vary.

Also while you can not share the single player campaign, apparently ever other activity (of which there are a lot) is available in full two player co-op. Just in case you had some else in mind to play with.

Note: I have not bought or played Far Cry 4 and do not plan on purchasing soon. I think I am done buying Xbox 360 games for now.

I was really undecided between Far Cry 4 and the new Dragon Age. I have enjoyed the Dragon Age games in the past, but Far Cry was getting good reviews and I knew you really liked the previous version.

So I am going with Far Cry 4. Why? Because now, if it sucks, I have yet another reason to hate you. I can never have too many of those.

Nothing wrong with Far Cry 3 but If you haven't picked it up yet take a look at Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition first.

No coop but exceptional open world game play. If I had to choose between Far Cry 3 and Sleeping Dogs, Sleeping Dogs would win every time. Plus its cheaper right now because it has been out longer. If you have already purchased Far Cry 4 put this on your list for later. After another price drop or two.

It also means you wouldn't be buying another Ubisoft game and due to all the DLC being included there are even zombies! Well, undead. Close enough.

Lots of coverage about it on the site

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition

Very little site coverage mainly because I never stopped playing it until I was finished.

It was an engrossing action adventure game that I played right through to the end. Available remastered for the Xbox One and has already had a price drop ($39.99)to make it more reasonably priced than Far Cry 4 and Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition.

And that climbing axe was awesome! Also not Ubisoft btw.

I highly recommend Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition

I already bought Far Cry 4 after your initial recommendation and I have been playing it any chance I can get. It is a very good game and very pretty. I will write up more about it next week, but it is essentially Assassin's Creed with guns. The quests are almost identical. No glitches so far anyway.


Please stop talking.
