Less Than A Week Left/Xbox 360 Suggestions

Well, my “coming-of-age” saga is almost at a close- only four more days until I can legally buy firearms and little sticks that you light on fire in order to obtain cancer. I have been busy as hell this past week with graduation related stuff, as well as preparing for my aunt’s wedding on the 18th. Starting next Monday, you can expect at least one article every single day from yours truly as I burst back on the scene with opinions and ideas.

^In lieu of any relevant images, here is me playing the trumpet in a cow suit.

I’m starting a regimen of stuff I will do for a prescribed amount of time every week. This includes getting exercise (mainly swimming, just cause I happen to like swimming a hell of a lot more than running), studying languages (Spanish, German, and Linux which totally counts as a foreign language), practicing guitar (actually practicing, rather than just dicking around and playing 80’s and 90’s pop hits), and of course, writing articles (which, as you may have noticed, are laden with parentheses). I’m also going to start doing some video stuff for you guys, mainly to advance towards my goal of being a respected/respectable caster. I’m leaving it up to you guys to keep me on the wagon, because nobody in my family can follow through with such. ANYWAYS! Recently, my girlfriend bought an Xbox 360. Why? I have no clue. But she did, and she’s going to need some suggestions. She’s currently about halfway through Portal on the Orange Box and loving it, even though she doesn’t quite grasp the whole first person deal yet. She also ordered a copy of L.A. Noire that should be coming in tomorrow, because she loves things in the investigation/detective alley (she has played through every single Ace Attorney game. All of them.). So, I’ll ask all of you guys what you recommend for her. Things to keep in mind:

  • She’s not really big on shooters or first person (yet. I intend to fix this.)
  • She loves a good storyline.
  • She’s definitely going to have Xbox Live.
  • I’m pretty sure she’s never played a single RPG in her life, and I’m pretty sure she would love them.
  • When she has the opportunity, she will literally play all day.

So, she already has Portal and L.A. Noire on the way. I have a fairly large library of loanable games for her, so I’ll definitely send them her way if you guys suggest them. Alright, peoples. I will see you all next Monday, when I start my journey to become the Pok√©mon League Champion a well rounded, respectable person who just so happens to write articles about video games! Leave me some words of encouragement or playful banter in the comments, as well as suggestions for Xbox 360 games in the comment section. See you soon!

    Trust me, I know halo. I’ve just recently come back on the scene for Reach because she bought an Xbox. I’m still kind of rusty, but once I get back in the swing and get three other members for a team, it’s go time.

    if you want to ease her into the RPG/dungeon crawler world d/l tourchlight..I know it’s a PC port to XBL but it is so much fun with the on the fly dungeon spawning and leveling up it’s a good starter for anyone new to the RPG world!!

    then of course ME1 ME2 DA:0 Fable 1 and 2 (sort of rpgs) and if and when shes ready for the FPS’s then HALO is a must is almost required for anyone who has an xbox….

    Happy birthday to me! As of five minutes ago, I’m legally 18! (not actually 18 until like 9:37.) Good night/morning/whatever, TGB.

    Mass Effect for the love of god yes. If you think she will like RPG’s you know what must be done!

    I’m kicking myself in the ass because yesterday i could have bought Dragon Age for like $10. Not touched the Witcher 2 as of yet. I already have Mass Effect, going to lend it to her once she’s done with Portal.

    The Witcher 2 is obviously a top title I would recommend. If this is a Xbox 360 then obviously mass effect is going to be one of my top choices. Dragon Age: Origins is a good one as well if you are going for story lines.


Have your say
