New XBOX 360 Owner

#1fuzi11Posted 7/25/2013 1:44:25 AM
Hi there,
I'm a relative new XBOX owner (since tuesday to be precise). Until now I was only a PC+Nintendo guy. I visited a friend who moved away a few years ago. He bought a new XBOX 360 and to my surprise he offered me his old XBOX 360 for 30 (Who would say no to that offer)

Now that I finished my lifestory

What games can you recommend for someone who only occasionally played Guitar Hero at friend's places and otherwise doesn't have much of a clue on what's hot on XBOX 360

I already bought Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3 (was on sale on xbox live and already loving it)

and I plan to get
Mortal Kombat (if there is a Komplete edition coming)
Bayonetta (because I don't want to go blindly into the second game)



But I can already tell that the points system is hugely annoying (I bought UMvC via paypal, but had to buy the additional characters via points, that I bought via paypal)

Don't look at the pawns as a bad ai multiplayer supplement but instead as Pokemon that you have to train and equip. And then you can rent other players pawns and give them presents.
My favorite Xbox360 game.

If you haven't played blood dragon and remember 80s action movies. That's cool too.

If you haven't played dark souls. It can be a lot of fun too.

Get a copy of ninja Gaiden black. Xbox360 are still backwards compatible with that game right? Anyway if you haven't played ninja Gaiden black you should.

Mortal Kombat Komplete came out like a year ago on 360.

UMvC3 had no DLC characters, I'm guessing you actually wasted money on costumes.

I'd recommend checking out Gears of War, one of my favorite series.
If you like RPGs then the 360 has a ton, both Japanese and western.
Devil May Cry collection would be a good buy too if you end up enjoying Bayonetta.

Dragons Dogma sounds interesting, and I heard a lot about dark souls and it's difficulty (the same with Ninja Gaiden in General)

On Mortal Kombat: Perfect
I had to buy Jill and Shuma Gorath, both were just question marks on the character select screen (any both were on sale as well, so whatever)
And I completely forgot about DMC
