Killer Instinct 3 and Dead Rising 3 are getting really good scores. I can't wait to play KI 3.

I checked out the Polygon DR3 video review just now, they didn't say anything about poor performance or frame rate drops and so on.  Just that the controls could've been better.

It's Polygon, what did you expect?

Looks like I'll be getting Zoo Tycoon after all. The reviews have been really positive and it should be nice family game for us. My wife loves these types of games anyway.

The DF review in last week was apparently from a not-final build.

DR3 seems to be getting decent reviews. Most seem to think its a very fun experience overall thanks to the open world design. The biggest gripes seem to be lack of precision controls against tougher enemies like bosses, and lengthy load times after a death. Coop sounds great too.

I don't have this game on preorder since the whole zombie genre has gotten old to me, but it does look fun, so I could see myself getting it later when its cheaper or maybe as a free Games for Gold thing.

KI I will have day one and I can't wait. Glad to see its getting good reviews.

Have you played BF3? its alot like BF3 with a few cool features. Im a COD and BF player and I like it but im hoping i love it on the XB1. I still prefer COD though for the competitiveness of the game.

Mine will be delivered by Amazon on Friday.  Picking up CoD and Dead Rising.... also picking up Super Mario World 3d for the Wii U that day (very expensive day for me).  Cannot wait... already sold my PS3 and Xbox 360 to make room...

What may sound like a stupid question but... has anyone seen anything on whether the XB1 will play just your bog standard DVD? I would have normally thought this was pretty straight forward but with the PS4 not supporting CD's I don't want to to take anything for granted.

I'm interested to see the reviews for Ryse. It's the only exclusive that interests me, but the gameplay videos have been rather disappointing. I'm hoping the story is good, or the combat was tweaked to be better leading up to launch.
