New Xbox One tech that allows devs to tag any of their content as "optional" to cut down on hard drive space. Examples used in the video are things like removing languages you won't use, and removing single player campaign if you beat it and only play multiplayer.

Small game changer right here.  However, part of what he mentions in the video is that "but the Xbox One wouldn't need to download all the 4K textures for FM7 that the Xbox One X would need."  I was under the impression that only the Xbox One X console would be able to download those larger files because it is the only console that can do anything with them.  Or are they now giving that previously mentioned aspect a name in this video?

 

EDIT - "Chunks" is not a good name.

Might have to check out Dead by Daylight. Isn’t it kind of like Friday the 13th without Jason?

Way better in my opinion, but do research first. Friday the 13th fans typically don't like Dead by Daylight, and vice versa. Dead by Daylight is a bit more shallow and repetitive, and the matches are shorter, but they're really straightforward and don't require voicechat to survive. You also get to choose to be either the killer or survivor instead of being randomly selected at the start of a match. But you're mostly just running around the map activating generators until the exit opens, then you run out. It feels much more laid back and not as stressful as F13, but still very creepy. Especially with one of the killers having an inviso ability. The recent Halloween movie DLC that just came out is awesome, too. Michael Myers > Jason Vorhees

 

It unfortunately runs like shit on XB1 unless a recent patch fixed the framerate. It's really hard to keep track of survivors as a killer in a cornfield when the framerate drops to 20fps. I'm also very used to the PC version.

Fortnite getting a PUBG mode on 9/26. Getting harder and harder to resist this game.

100 players, one map, last player standing wins.

https://news.xbox.co...er-26-xbox-one/

 

 

 (FWIW, the GTAV Motor Wars PUBG mode is excellent too.)

I played 2 games of it last night and it's freaking fun and intense. I panicked on the first kill and left a purple weapon :-x .Made it to #22 and then #21, and only died the first time cause the bubble closed on me and killed me. They're adding squads too, it says so in the menu so soon you can have team pvp. soon The maps is very very huge. The only thing I don't like is they give you a generic character and you don't get you hero from the game. At the very least I would like to use my skin.

http://xboxdvr.com/g.../video/36419794 my only two kills cause I was letting them do all the work heh

Shame that Virtual-On is Japan only. Maybe the releases are different besides the language settings? I enjoyed the trial of it on 360.

 

But Saints Row 3. Holy shit.

I haven't dl'ed FM5 yet since my Gold expired but just for verification the Car Pass and VIP Membership aren't part of the GOTY edition, right?

The GwG page (here) lists it as "Forza Motorsport 5: Racing Game of the Year Edition" (here) which only includes the base game and the "Forza Motorsport 5 Top Gear Car Pack."

Hey, that's not fair at all. I'll have you know that season 13 has one episode that's kind of good!

PS4 talk? That's a paddlin'.

Simpsons past season 12? Oh, you better believe that's a paddlin'.

All I remember Undertow for is being a game they gave away 10 years ago after the holiday release of COD4 wrecked Xbox live.


Edit
Re: Simpsons, I have seasons 1-10 in DVD and the only episode I feel I'm missing is the "Behind The Laughter" spoof. So one episode over the course of 17 years.

And paddlin' the school canoe.... that's a paddlin'

Thanks, just wanted to make sure. You would think the GOTY edition would have included all car packs.

I bought it last time it was $3.75 hoping it'd go BC, really happy about this.

Once in awhile there's a funny gag or a decent episode that gets a lot of media attention, but more than anything, they've been on the air so long I can't fathom how they still come up with new material. Voice actors aside, virtually all of the people involved in creating the original show when it was at it's height have moved on. It's kind of like a band who lost all original members except the vocalist, the voice is familiar but the music just isn't the same.

 

I officially gave up on modern-era Simpsons when they started doing Family Guy-style cutaway gags, that's not what I want in that show.

I recall hearing you could choose to download the One X files to any Xbox in an attempt to "prep" for a transfer to the One X from OG or S.

Oh sweet. We're doing Simpsons talk! Hell yeah to this!

 

I Think it's telling when Simpsons is bad is when even the Treehouse of Horror's are running out of ideas. By season 13 onward it feels they definitely begin getting away from the horror, Twilight Zone and other aspects just so they can directly poke at the then current pop culture, which makes it feel really dated. More so than even the earlier seasons.

 

Also current Simpsons after season 12 is bad and people should feel bad for liking it especially with their full blown celebrity worship episodes. I Know it started earlier (that goddamn Kid Rock episode), but it just got so ridiculous with majority of celebrities adding nothing to the story, not even a good joke, but just a "HEY! Look at who we got!"

Just looked up a list of Koei Tecmo's 360 games, and zero of them are BC, so I'd say chances are low. They haven't done any remasters either, that Warriors crossover we got from GWG was a port, as was DOA 5.

 

I played a Virtual On cabinet finally and I'd say that's worth checking out. Hopefully the version we had in the US becomes BC too. Hoping Saints Row 3 means Saints Row 2 is on the horizon.

No Marge robot yet, but Abe does marry Selma: http://simpsons.wiki...ld_and_Julie-Eh

 

I just want to make clear right now though that I have not seen these episodes and only know about them from reading about the decline of the show.

I was with The Simpsons since the beginning and can remember my family watching that first episode. I was pretty obsessed as a kid and still watched into my early adult years. With that said The Simpsons is other than maybe Star Wars the most overrated pop culture entity in existence.
