Lords of Shadow Games on XBox One

I don’t have an xbox one, but if I did, I’d be happy that I could now play all three lords of shadow games on it.  I do have a 360 though, so if LoS1 became a digital download all of a sudden, I might take notice (i’m so lazy with discs haha).

Good on Microsoft for seeing their chance and taking it -- it's a great season to immerse yourself in everything even slightly vaguely gothic and horror related.
They're actually pretty serviceable games so long as you can temporarily vanish the prior series from your perception.

Though LOS2's idea of what constitutes "stealth gameplay" is happens to be hi-key offensive to anyone who grew up with Metal Gear and/or Assassin's Creed. To this day, it's still my biggest issue with the game.
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.
