Only if you want to keep everything downloaded at the same time. I uninstall games I don't play anymore. I know some people really want to keep everything though.

Too much of a hassle, more space is just convenient.

There honestly isn't.

Black Flag would be a option, but I'm so far behind on that series I might just give it up.


Black Flag is great and they've actually made it very self contained. The while thing still ties in with the previous games and the ongoing story but it's much less invasive and the non-Animus parts are a lot shorter and less awful. The whole thing is so nonsense anyway. I played all the games and I still can't follow it when it gets weird. The pirate/assassin stuff is so well executed though and looks so good on next gen that I would get it anyway and when it kicks you out just do the quick objectives and get back into the animus.

40GB install?

External hard drives are going to be necessity this generation.


Yeah..it's gonna be tough. I have Forza, destiny pre-loaded, battlefield, madden, FIFA, ryse, dead rising, titanfall, and the free games. Have like 20GB left.

That sounds like a lot, but considering I have like 80 360 games (arcade and digital) with 200GB left and 60-70 PS3 games..that's crazy

What this guy said. Black Flag is one of the better games in this series. My second favorite, behind Assassin's Creed II. You can approach Black flag without having played the other games, (although, it helps if you have), the Animus and office parts catch you up with what is going on, in regards to the Templars and the story so far.

Lego: The Hobbit for Xbox 360 is on sale per XBLDB, for $29.99. Anyone know if there's a sale on XB1 edition?

It's most likely a permanent price drop from how it's presented on PSN and the 3DS eShop.

^^^Achievements man!

 

Played the first race of Forza 5 and got all I needed to see in the trial.  Not a big Forza fan to begin with but I do like the Horizon series a lot more.  Wouldn't buy FH2 until it hits a serious price drop however.

Exactly. In my eyes AC4 is to AC3 like AC2 is to AC. Of the numbered entries 1 and 3 are the weakest but they also introduced a lot of the ideas that were then refined and worked better in the next game.

I know DBZ Ultimate Tenkaichi is suppose to be bad, but that 5 month long gold price tag of 10 dollars keep tempting me. As a DBZ fan I feel I have to buy it at some point, just to judge it myself.

I always really wanted to get persona 4

but a fighting game is useless if their aint people online playing it,

so anybody here knows if its still really active online?

A fighting game is almost useless to me, ever since i started creating a backlog.

 

You have to buy the limited edition that comes with it. So essentially you have to pay extra to get a friend to play with......oh wait, I was thinking of a hooker.

Cool, when and where can i pre-order that edition ?

Is Resident Evil: Revelations worth it at $13.54?

Prototype- fun open world action game.  I think Prototype 2 is much better and less buggy than the first.

 

I played Prototype 2 a couple years ago after picking it up cheap and really enjoyed it.   When Infamous Second Son came out for PS4, I couldn't get over how similar the gameplay was; I guess there's no official connection but the two dev shops respect each others' work.

For Destiny physical vs. Digital, isn't it mmo-ish in that physical will just do install and there will be a key that's the true unlocking of the game, thus removing most resale value? Ala whatever number the final fantasy mmo is?

I don't think so because it's not a subscription based game like FF14 but I may be wrong. I'm sure the whole thing gets installed regardless though.

No.  It'll function like a normal XBO game.  Install, and run a disc check unless you buy the digital version.

Watch this and it will explain/point out the similarities between the two.

That video makes Prototype sound a lot better than I remember. I might have to give it another try.

Yeah..it's gonna be tough. I have Forza, destiny pre-loaded, battlefield, madden, FIFA, ryse, dead rising, titanfall, and the free games. Have like 20GB left.

That's it? Mine is at 68% full before Forza, but that leaves over 100 GB open. I have 19-20 games installed: FIFA, Madden 25 and Madden 15, COD Ghosts and all 4 expansions, AC IV, Titanfall, EA Sports UFC, and every free gold game/free to play game. Do you have a lot of saved video clips or something?

Regardless, your point is valid. I just went over the Xbox One situation. Had to upgrade the 360 to 500 GB this spring. PS4 has about 30 GB open. PS3 has barely 25 GB left on a damn 1 TB drive.

Sports games don't seem to take up that much space.

BF4 alone for me already has 55GB with one more DLC release.  I deleted all the stuff I know I won't play like Powerstar Golf and Peggle 2, so I'm at like 38% currently.

Just got prompted to an update on my 360, wonder what that is.

That's bonkers.  I stick to playing one game at a time (sorta) and try not to move on to the next one until I'm ready to put it on the shelf.  If I were to open too many games, I'd never get done!
