Xbox gaming recommendations

    It’s that time of year when I’m thinking about ordering a few games. I’m not a massive gamer so there is usually a back log of games I haven’t played. My favourites include the Fallout and Borderlands series. I recently completed RD2 and it’s a contender for best game ever. I will be getting Tiny Tinas Wonderlands. I’m thinking maybe a couple of the Far Cry games, are they worth it? Any other recommendations for games old or new appreciated.

    Dark Souls and Ace combat 7

    Control if you like mind fuky stuff, and one of the best new "environments" or worlds created in the last few years.

    Far Cry 3 is the best one imo. And the Blood Dragon DLC is amazing. If you haven't played one before, 5 would probably be good because you haven't been worn out by them yet.

    The 2 Ori games if you haven't already. Both amazing little games.

    If you like Fallout, maybe give The Outer Worlds a go. Fallout in space but not as good.

    Other than that, get a PS5 and have a decent library of of games to play then! :P

    Get yourself a years game pass if you use the work around using a VPN it's for small money and there is at least a years worth of gaming there.

    As for Far Cry games I think the Gold edition of 5 (which can be got for small money) comes with a digital edition of 3.

    Assassin's Creed Origins, as they say, surprised me. Very entertaining game. The sequel was really boated and repetitive, but this was just right, and felt actually designed and not auto generated. I think you'd like it based on the games you mentioned. Also, on GamePass. Play it at 60 FPS 4K HDR if you can. Looks and sounds gorgeous. You could probably get it really cheap now.

    Your fondness for Ace Combat will never die 😃

    I will have to play Dark Souls at some stage but I'm not sure I want to do that to myself just yet. Ace Combat is not the type of game I would usually play but I watched a bit of gameplay and I am a bit intrigued.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,496 ✭✭✭Yester

    I had not heard of Control but it sounds good and is €4 so I'm getting it.

    Ori looks quiet trippy and could well be one for the future.

    I have played the Outer Worlds and it was fine.

    I didn't think it was the kind of game I'd like but gave it a go. It's one of the all time great action games.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,496 ✭✭✭Yester

    I've only played the original Assassins Creed and it didn't really grab me. I must give the series another go, so this sounds like the one to try. €18 on CEX at the moment so it's a possibility.

    I must look into this. I've used the months trial for €1 before and played Guardians of the Galaxy (great fun).

    I'll keep an eye out for the Gold Edition of Far Cry 5

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,106 ✭✭✭SuperBowserWorld

    You can probably get it a lot cheaper digitally. Cdkeys or eneba. Edit ... Amazon has it for about a 10 physical delivered.

    Or just grab GamePass for a month or so. Note: you can get about 3 years of gamepass for about 120 quid. There is a thread here discussing GamePass.

    But just get a month or so anyway and try a load of stuff on there including this game.
