It’s Shark Week! Hence the theme of this story’s featured picture. While I’m looking forward to a week dedicated to one of nature’s most fierce predators, I’m even more excited about the Xbox One’s launch.
All pre-ordered and ready to go, I understand that a console alone doesn’t cut it. You need games! So, with that in mind, I’m highlighting three Xbox One games that I plan on picking up on Day One.
I know Killer Instinct is set to be a limited freebie, but I don’t want a piece of the game, I want the whole damn thing. I sampled the refreshed fighter at E3 and although I tasted a bitter defeat, the experience was quite satisfying. I’m looking forward to honing my skills and finding a character who best fits my style of play.
Sure, the Battlefield 4 demo during Microsoft’s E3 conference initially had a few technical difficulties, but once it was finally up and running the game looked amazing. In a market saturated with first-person shooters, the Battlefield franchise has won me over in terms of cross-platform titles.
I can’t wait to take this game for a spin and can only imagine how many countless hours I’ll end up spending with its multiplayer.
Dead Rising 3
Definitely the wild card of the bunch, Dead Rising 3 has guilty pleasure written all over it. At first I wasn’t too enthused about this game, but a closer look at this sandbox, survivor horror title made me change my tune. I’m looking forward to crafting some over-the-top weapons and taking down hordes of zombies grindhouse style.
So, that’s my list. Does it look anything like yours, or are you looking forward to a completely different trio of games? Perhaps you’re a big spender and my meager three games isn’t enough for you. Maybe you’re balling on a budget and you can only afford one or two games at best. We wanna know!
