Wasn't there an issue for some with the GoD version of Forza Horizon not working? Has that been fixed?


It was still a problem about a month ago when I tried to play it so hopefully the Xbox one will fix that

Oh you cant play FH1 either?

My only hope is that by going bc, the annoying "remove the disc and clean it" error for my digital game goes away.


Lol I have Forza Horizon (love it) but Mirrors Edge makes me nauseous

Please sell me on this game. Your enthusiasm has peaked my curiosity. I own a PS4/PS3/360 but have never played it on those because I prefer XB1 for everything. Give me the Awesomenauts elevator pitch. Go!

Unique characters with huge personality in a 2D moba that feels like an evolved beat'em up and is genuinely a lot of fun to play, especially with friends.

So I take it the answer is no. Glad I have the disc.

GoD version of Forza Horizon works fine for me.

I have Horizon digital and have never had a problem with it.  I bought it last July, so perhaps I got a "clean" copy of the GoD file while those having trouble have an original with patches that has issues.

 

Looks like they also fixed the Forza Rewards for Horizon 1.  My cars, miles and passes finally updated.  The days tracker didn't update, but if it requires a checkin to a server that wasn't working, not surprised it didn't keep up.  Probably too much to hope that it could give credit for days with timestamped achievements.

Already have Earthlock, Forza Horizon, and Mirror's Edge, so I guess I'll give AC Chronicles a shot to see if I should get the bundle when it's on sale next at $10 or so.

Yeah, I don't know if it was a widespread issue or just affected (effected? never know which one to use) a large enough # of people where I heard about it. I passed on sales of the digital version because of this. Hopefully it works for me everybody.

Already had Mirror's Edge for 360 the day it came out (for that sweet messenger bag) then I got it for free from EA for the PS3 and now I kinda have it on XBox One now I guess with the GoD. So...yay?

Makes me wonder if the people affected have their ones set to instant on.

Affected. I always tell people to just use "impacted" if they aren't sure  :lol:

 

 

Not sure why it works for some people but not others. Maybe delete and redownload it. Shrug.

Doesn't work. I deleted the save file too and redownloaded the game. It starts, shows me the initial cut scene, followed by the game menu and then says that the "disc cannot be read. Please remove the disc and clean it."

Only affects/impacts digital copy and that too, for a small percentage of people.

Welp, own everything except Earthlock, but at least the 360 titles are good to have digitally and on my X1.

And actually have AC:China on PS4 where I've barely started it so think I'll play it on X1.

So basically you have a red team and a blue team who have to obliterate each other to win....jk there's a pool of about 12 + characters each with different abilities.The game is a 2d tower defense and the goal is to destroy the enemies core to win but before you can reach it you have to destroy the 2-4 turrets that are protecting the core.Also you gain solar power by defeating opposing players and with that you buy upgrades for your character.They have awesome characters like froggy g,lonestar,derpyl(who is my fav)and alot more i just forgot the names right now.It's definitely worth the $10

Nice almost bought AC Chronicles last week.  Wasn't sure it was for me.  Glad I held off.  Can play China for free and then see if I want to buy the other two (or the bundle if cheaper).

Has FC3 Blood Dragon ever been on sale digitally? I see that BC now and I'd love to play through that again.

Titanfall 2 feedback has been addressed some of it will be updated for this weekend's Tech Test. 

Looks like they will put titans on a meter again. http://www.titanfall...t-and-feedback/

 

I didn't get a chance to play it last weekend, but these changes sound like they address a lot of the complaints I read in here.

It was $7.49 in September 2013.  One of the games I bought digitally on 360 and never got around to.  Just finishing up the last trophy over the next couple of days.  Need about 10K cash to buy the last bunch of weapons upgrades.

 

Glad I finally got around to it.  I also bought it cheap on PS3 and maybe played 15 mins.

Thank goodness. Can't wait to test it out again. Enthusiasm renewed!!!

I have 3/4 of those GWG freebies. I'll give Earthlock a whirl. Really good games, just sucks for me as I own most of em

Finished playing and getting 1k gamerscore in Three Fourths Home. As Tyler mentioned earlier, its a visual novel game. I enjoyed it more than say The Park. Main story was an hour with a 15 minute epilogue. Took me an additional 20 mins to mop up the remaining chievos. As part of the bundle, it averages out to $3.33 so I feel I got my money's worth.

I don't game on PC at all, so its refreshing to play a different style of game on console. Change up the pace instead of the usual FPS or shooter game. Now to try out the other two games in the bundle, Grimm and Paranautical

Affect - typically a verb

Effect - typically a noun (although could be a verb)

For whatever reason I have a permanent mental block on which to use when. When it is a noun I get it right. It's the sometimes "effect" is a verb thing. I'll go look it up, read some vague statements about when to use "effect" instead of "affect" in those situations, then promptly forget it until the next time.
