    So far, just Forza 5. I'm still debating between Ryse, Cod, and DR3, but I'm so conflicted!

    Getting Titanfall as soon as its available.

    I'd wait for the launch to attempt a Dead Rising 3 demo. CoD Infinity Ward-style is a joke (and has been for years), and Ghosts seems like the king of the crap hill for them, in that it's getting panned for general suckitude worse than ever. Ryse seems interesting, but mostly for its gore and graphics, while Dead Rising 3 seems like it'd be a great co-op game with a lot of mindless fun. Since you have the serious racer in Forza, I'd go for the game that will give you something crazy to do with friends, but I'd wait for a demo to check if the frame rate's as bad as it sounds.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who is tired of COD

    I have been tired of COD for years. Everybody tells me each one is better then the last and I believe them and have been tricked for years into buying this crap. I haven't bought the last 2 and I'm proud! :D

    That almost got me too, but I found a groups of my friends that were in the same position as me, and we just religiously started playing Forza. MUCH better game!

    I preordered Forza 5 LE and DR3 Day One. Fifa is included with the Console. I buy the games for Pc if possible (BF4 + Titanfall).

    I'm a very social player, so even though I play PC games, I prefer console because of the integrated voice chat. Steam needs integrated voice chat if they want to compete in my opinion. It's one of the reasons Xbox Live was so successful.

    It actually does have voice chat integrated to it. But with Steam I guess the problem is that the games arnt played THROUGH Steam. It's nothing but a glorified quick start icon for majority of games. BFs on PC have their own seperate voice chat system I believe, at least in groups.

    Yeah but it's never seamless like a console. Very rarely do games just let you jump in and start talking. You usually have to configure a voice party or something.

    I agree, was just pointing out :P

    Typically on PC I just dragged everyone I wanted to actually play with to TeamSpeak :P

    I just love the social aspect on console. Gear Of War 1 holds my best memories. During each round it was only you and your 3 teammates talking, but in between round, for 10 seconds, both teams got to talk to each other.

    Gears Of War to this day is my all time favorite video game for Xbox 360. I have logged more hours on that game more than any game in my life and I still play it to this day.

    Alright, just got the Play and charge kit. One question: if we don't buy the Day One edition of a game before day one, are they going to stop making them or could I buy them a month later?

    I'm now deciding between Ryse and Dead Rising since I can just pick up CoD either way since the Day One edition really offers me nothing I would use.

    Wait... does the Microsoft Store have Forza 5 Limited Edition? I have the day one edition on preorder but I think I'm going to change it, however I'm not seeing it on their site...?

    Wish they'd let you pre-order digital downloads.

    amazon has the limited edition for pre order. It looks sweet, but I can't justify $80 on a game when I'm already spending $500 for the console, $120 for the games and $25 on a play and charge kit. :'(
