Just been a tight arse and purchased a 360 from someone upgrading to the xbox one.

It is the S model with 2 controllers and headset. It also has 3 games, Halo 4, Need for Speed Most Wanted and Gears of War 3.

Previous consoles are Master System, PS 1,2 and 3 and original Xbox, but only really for Xbox. All other serious gaming has been on the PC.

I've purchased the console as I love driving games and played every Gran Turismo and got most of the way through and I am after a new challenge so thought I would give Forza a go.

I also love FPS and want to play the Halo games, but which order should I play them in?

I have never played a 3rd person shooter, so not sure if I will like GOW, it seems a little arcadey for me.

I will mainly play offline, but may change in the future.

Oh before I forget the UK edition of Cards Against Humanity is on Amazon and is solo good smile

It has to be tea with 2 sugars.


The biscuit is a hard decision, it could be the standard custard cream, or the new kid on the block Lotus, but I think it has to be the plain and simple NICE.


I've not played a huge amount with my xbox, been playing WoT over Christmas (joined the clan).

Ahoy fellow xbox newbie!

I picked up a similar deal last weekend. I also got halo 4 bundled with mine. I will add you and we can shoot some people? Would be nice to play halo without having my sexual orientation or my mothers morals called into question. I also got halo wars with mine which is excellent. Best controls on a console RTS.
