    I can't speak for needing updates but I am currently playing Wolfenstein: The New Order and its focus is definitely on single player. It's not often I find a game which manages to draw me away from Dota 2 for very long, but TNO has done just that with its engaging storyline and fun game-play. Since you mentioned BoB I found someone selling a copy of it over here.

    I'll play anything with a decent storyline at the moment.
    I don't own an Xbox 360 but here are some games which I know are available on the 360 and which I have heard are good:

    • Alien: Isolation
    • Tomb Raider (2013)
    • Max Payne 3
    • Dishonored
    • Red Dead Redemption
    • BioShock 1, 2 or Infinite


    Enjoy!

    I'm assuming such a china would be quite a drive away if he has to use satellite for internet because cell network is too slow... More often than not fixed line broadband is also out of the question.

    So maybe get someone to log into your Steam profile, download a crapton of SP games and post you the external HDD?

    Does that even work? Thought the whole file transfer thing was canned a while back in favour of backups.

    Yeah works fine. We used to make use of the fibre at the office (at night when nobody was using it) to download huge new games and just distribute the external with the files on it instead of everyone downloading the same game and waiting a week for 60GB to download...

    I might just bite the bullet and buy an xbone and f1 2017. My Zuma return was kind to me this year.

    You can copy game directories from another computer and place them in the Steam\SteamApps\common directory, but you will still need to start the installation for the game so Steam can do its "Discovering existing files..." thing.

    @snowbeast Something I used to do a while back is make Steam DVD backups and post it to people who had limited data caps. If you like I can offer to make backups for you since I keep all my games downloaded and up-to-date at all times. Check this link to see all the games I have and PM me if you want any backups made.

    I accidentally downloaded hearth stone at 3pm waiting for systems to come online. Played a couple of practice rounds. Got home and wife and baby are away so started playing at 5:30. Just looked up. It's 10 to 11.
    I need to cook supper, shower and go to bed.
