Our Take
You know what would make an awesome Xbox One game, Chair? Shadow Complex 2! Pending that, though, I would be interested in trying out Infinity Blade on a console. I've never found the series all that compelling on mobile devices, but I know it's is well regarded by many. Maybe playing it on a big screen with a controller will turn me into a fan. I'm definitely interested it giving it a shot.
