“Tell me about…”
There are so many unique console and PC games out there these days. Although there is a lot of information available about which games are the best, sometimes our tastes and what we crave can be a bit more specific. Bing can also help you bring it out based on how the game looks, who’s in it, or how long it takes to complete it. Here are some examples to try for yourself:
- “Tell me about the best cyberpunk role-playing games for Xbox.”
- “Tell me about the best action games that can be played in a maximum of 10 hours.”
- “Tell me about the best heroine games on Xbox.”
“What’s best for me ______?”
Strategy comes in all shapes and sizes in games, and it’s not hard to find opinions on the best gear, characters, and skill trees. But are these the best choices? for you? You can start with a basic question, but this is another interaction that will allow Bing to guide you to the best choices, how to determine and even what games to check out.
Here’s what we asked:
- “What equipment should I use War Zone 2.0 multiplayer?”
- “Which Overwatch character is best for me?
- “What are the best benefits Cyberpunk 2077?”
- “Which Xbox Game Pass games can I enjoy?”
“Where can I find…?”
Bing can help you find many things in your favorite games, such as where each secret weapon is Fortnitewhere the Tall Tales journals are located A sea of thievesand can even help you find your car keys (sort of). But what if what you’re looking for doesn’t immediately come to mind. You know that type, like that one quest where there’s this guy who did that one thing with a fiery sword that time? To start digging into this to help us find the right answer, we asked:
- “Where can I find the blue lady from outer space mass effect 3?”
- “Where can I find a list Fallout 3 tasks starting with the letter J?
- “Where can I find that one quest that has this guy who did that one thing with a fiery sword one time?” (Your follow-up answers will be crucial for something like this!)
In addition to amazing worlds, games can have complex and evolving stories that can seem a bit hard to follow while playing. Not to mention we have to put that controller down at some point and get back to the action another day. Sometimes that day turns into months, maybe even years. So, wouldn’t it be nice to get a summary of how far you are in the game without having to start over? New Bing is here to help. Here are some examples we took from:
- “Give me a summary Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch to chapter 4”.
- “Give me a summary The Witcher 3 after 20 hours.”
- “Give me a synopsis of each campaign storyline in the Halo series.”
While Bing can certainly help us learn how to defeat the worst villains in gaming (e.g. “How to beat Malenia in Ring of the Elden?”), we wanted to go in a slightly different direction: what if it helped us learn how to make something tangible out of our favorite games? After all, learning to do something new can be one of the coolest things in life, and if it comes from the world of our favorite games, even better! So we took that into account by giving you some examples that you can try as well:
- “How to make a cake like the one that appears in Portal?“
- “How to make a toy sword from a design found in Skyrim?”
- “How to prepare a meal based on ramen recipes found in Yakuza: Like a dragon?”
We hope these extensive examples will help you start your own questions and interactions with this amazing new tool for everyday use (especially in games). Don’t be afraid to be weird: what games would Marcus Fenix like? Bing has the answer. You can even request your own personalized music festival-style 3-day lineup… but with games coming this year instead of music artists.
