Whats the next 360 game i should invest in?
    #11270504 - 10/18/09 12:26 PM (8 years, 1 day ago)

Yeh im aware of the "gaming grotto" but as we all know it's much more dirty in here from all the foot traffic..

Games i have and are tired of:

-Mirrors edge

-Maddens

-Tiger woods

-CoD4(maybe 5 too im not sure)

-orange box(was a gift, havnt played it too much). I'm not a huge fan of lasers and what not.

I have a few more i think but im not at home.



So..whats a sweet new game thats worth spending too much money on?  Something thats not terribly short like CoD(4?).

Dirt2 i imagine is cool enough.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.  -  I hadn't heard of this game untill i just started reading about a few.

Hockey or Fifa would be fun im sure, maybe not so much playing alone tho?

Or maybe theres something comming out in the next 2 months or so that i should wait on?  I wish they had some sweet games like old skool FF RPG status.  I need a super nintendo.

elder scrolls 5 is going to ruin my life when it's released.  seriously My friends and family are going to think I'm dead because I will not leave the house until I explore(and steal from) every crevice of that game.

man, that's totally dependent on your gaming style.

personally, i was a huge fav of Oblivion (and Morrowind for that matter), and spent farrrrrrr too many hours playing it.  but goddamn i fucking LOVE getting baked and killing the fuck out of goblins and ogres and cultists and demons.  totally immersible and huge and time consuming, so beware.

fallout 3 is also a winner, which incidentally is also made by bethesda using the Oblivion game engine, except it's set in a post-nuclear apocalyptic environment.  all real men love post-apocalyptic steampunk fantasies.

i'm pretty sure the second assassin's creed is coming out sometime soon too.  should be pretty to look at and relatively fun i suppose.  :shrug:

honestly, i don't even own a 360, but i played the fuck out of oblivion on my computer when it first came out, and then on my roommate's 360 this past year.  and i actually bought fallout 3 to play on his 360.  so those are really the only two games i can recommend, if you're into that sort of thing.

I pre ordered Borderlands yesterday. Should be pretty sick. Fallout 3 will keep you busy for quite some time.

Get live? You will get a lot more playtime with your games with it.

Assassin's Creed 2 is coming out November 17.

COD Modern Warfare 2 is coming out November 10th.

Left 4 Dead 2 is coming out November 17 also.

Fallout 3 is also very fun.

Fallout 3 and Oblivion are the best games on the system and easily trump anything on PS3.

Elder Scrolls is great and worth getting. Fallout 3 is good, but short unless you get all the expansions, then its only a bit longer. Brutal Legend looks badass lol, you get to be jack black goin around kickin ass, dunno if its any good though.

yeah, i'm always stealth as well with my first character.  but regardless of the character skillset, my alchemy and intelligence will always be increased the fastest.  alchemy works so well with stealth/marksmen characters.  enchanted bow + enchanted arrows + poisons + stealth critical strike = instadeath for so many foes.  and poisons that you create will always have a fairly long duration, so if the creature/npc doesn't die immediately, just stay hidden or cast invisibility and it will most likely die in a matter of seconds.  problem with poisons though, is that they often don't work in the planes of oblivion.

as a marksman, do you arrow farm enchanted arrows?  that's a MUST.  whenever you come across an NPC that strikes you with a decent enchanted arrow while no other foes are around, find a wall or rock or tree or something to stand in front of.  then using the sound of the bowstring and the whistle of the arrow, sidestep just in time for the arrow to strike the surface, then sidestep back in to grab the arrow before it disappears (enchanted arrows disappear from the ground after like a second or two).  i got so fucking good at that.

it may sound cheap, and i guess it is, but you'll never have to use a shitty iron arrow again.  when i found especially strong arrows, i would do it for over 30 minutes and amass like 300+ arrows.

Now if i jump into a game like Fallout 3 or whatever-whatever 6 .. is it going to suck since i haven't played the starter games?

Heres my problem with live, and i haven't looked into it too deeply.  My internet set up is wireless.. sooo I'd have to buy an xbox extension thingie so i don't have to play wirelessly online? How much is that ripoff..? 
  Because living in a basement out of town trying to game wirelessly could suck i would imagine. Nothing annoys me more than dying online because of lag spikes.

O and as far as gamefly goes.. meh i had a trial to it for awhile but it just took too long for games to come back to me, plus *shrugs* thats just another things to waste money on and im kind of a tight-ass

Thanks for the ideas tho fellas, i'll start looking into these.

you do not have to have any knowledge of prior games for either oblivion or fallout 3. 

each series of the elder scrolls is set on the same planet, but on different continents of that planet during a different time in history.  all information regarding the universe you will need you will learn throughout the game.  and honestly, you don't even need to know any information about the universe, as you can avoid the immersion and simply do the missions.

same applies for fallout 3, which is actually completely different from fallout 1 and 2, which were more third person view from above wherein you command a party.  since fallout 3 is based on the oblivion engine, it's first person (though you can acquire teammates/acquaintances here and there). 

both games are rather largely open-ended and nonlinear (though oblivion far moreso than fallout).  so you're completely free to develop your character however you want, choos the factions you want to join and do missions for, explore whatever region you want to explore without having to worry about time limits or whatever.

so this thread made me want to do some research on the matter.  as of august 2009, they announced that fans should not expect to see elder scrolls 5 any time soon.  meaning the 2010 release date that was being thrown around in 08 isn't in the cards.
