    Mortal Kombat X and Arkham Knight would be nice to play. The only other one that I can think of is Dead Rising 3 and, having played that at Mike’s, I’m not sure that I’m as enamored with it as I was beforehand. Still, barring a lottery win, the odds of a new console are slim to none.

    (Oddly, I never even got around to playing the demo for the Witcher although I think I still have it on my backup files on the Vista box. I haven’t even tried the Witcher 2 on X360. I figure I’ll get around to it someday but…..)

    As for what I play on a fairly regular basis:
    Alien Rage (Part of the XBLA/PSN initiative.)
    Marvel Avengers Alliance (Yes, I let the monkey back on.)
    Star Wars The Old Republic
    Puzzle Chronicles
    Borderlands 2
    Various video game pinballs (Pinball Arcade finally got their seasons on XBL. Not sure if I want to get the bundles or just the ones that I really want or are curious about. Also waiting to see if I get the T2 kickstarter and for them to iron the bugs out of launch.)Report

      When I was investigating the PS4, the number one game that grabbed my eye was a collection of real-world pinball tables (including, of course, The Machine).

      I realized that this was insufficient reason to drop hundreds on what would otherwise be destined to be a Blu-ray player.Report

        It’s the same company. Supposedly, licensing issues kept them off the 360 for awhile (while not affecting the Xbox One because reasons).Report

        I’ve got two Pinball games on PS4, but only the free demos. Are any worth buying?

        My wife started playing Diablo 3 on PS4 (sadly no seasons, and strangely no interconnectivity with PC players. And no split screen mode. Weird, eh?) which has scratched the ‘mindless destruction itch’.

        I’ve been playing The Old Republic. I should join a Guild someday.Report

          Depends. If you’re talking about the Pinball Arcade, the question should be: “How did I feel about this Pinball game in the 80s/90s”. That’s why I’ve been debating on getting the bundles or just getting the ones that I used to play back in the day. If it’s from the Pinball FX series, the demos will give you a feel for it.

          If you’re Imp, I would say that you should join Lords of Apex but I can’t deny that the guild has become largely inactive. If you’re Pub, Bahamut is still fairly active.Report

    I’d rather play games on the PC, myself. I like using a mouse to orient, it’s intuitive…Report
