1. Forza Horizon 2

2. Forza Horizon

3. Burnout Paradise

4. Tomb Raider

5. Forza Motorsport 5

 

 

504 hours in Sports (I thought driving had its own category)

 

Really surprised by the following:

Top 6% in Gamerscore

My top 5:
1. Stardew Valley
2. Overwatch
3. For Honor
4. Ghost Recon: Wildlands
5. Battlefield 1

Was surprised AC: Origins didn't make the list since I put 72 hours into it until I looked up battlefield and I put 96 hours into that.

I'm in the top 1% for gamerscore/achievements and top 13% for time played.

Romancing Saga 2 is also out. $19.99 launch price ($24.99 normally)

https://www.microsof...-2/9MWNL6SB15W0

I’d like to know if there’s any difference between this and the mobile version. The console launch trailer is exactly the same as the iOS one from 2015.

I probably won't get an email to spin the wheel for points as Australia never gets any emails like that. I never even got that email with $5 credit or whatever it was.

From what I recall, there is a NG+ option that for some reason is only available on the mobile version.  Also, I bet the mobile version doesn't have achievements.

Odd about the NG+ thing. Probably going to get it anyway. Might be a good idea to help show JRPGs can be successful on X1.

Got some rewards cash to blow.

1) Fallout 4
2) Skyrim
3) far cry 3
4) Assassin creed 2
5) the orange box

Apparently I spent more hours in shooters then RPG. Strange.

Only 523 hours played. I guess I now have goals

Did you play BLOPS2 on 360 and X1 this year? Maybe it can't combine BC with 360?

That SR4 achievement was silly. I think after getting every other achievement in the game I still had to idle it for 12+ hours. I should go back and replay it on X1 but it's so low on my backlog priorities.

yeah on xbox one black ops 2 is abbreviated but I didn't play it on 360 hardly at all this year, so no idea how it would be in my top 5

I also would like to add on to pubg, the crashing is insane and the game in unplayable, just played 5 squads matches and every single time someone on my team crashed and taking 2 minutes to get back in completely fucks you, I guess game preview doesnt require games to pass certification.

Is not that totally the point of Game Preview? I'd imagine it's pretty relaxed on anything like "certification". Just out of curiosity do you know what system the player was using? I've played probably 50 or so matches by this point and have never had a crash or a game breaking bug yet. There is one guy I run squads with that is on the OG Xbox One and he's had a handful of crashes, one time he somehow got stuck inside a wall which was pretty funny. Everyone else I run with has the X so I wonder if it can be traced back to that.

Warning to those thinking of Romancing Saga 2. Was reading some reviews of it on Steam saying it’s a bad port of the mobile version. No full screen, button issues... And one reviewer said Square did a great job with other mobile to PC ports so just sounds like they were lazy this time.

Think I’m holding off and will get the iOS version when it has a decent sale (currently is “on sale” for $14.99 but think that is only due to the PC/console launch and isn’t much of a discount over the $17.99 normal price).

I think people argue that little to nothing will happen and it’s just a way for politicians to say they kept a promise and actually did something they intended to do. As mentioned, there’s way more competition on the internet marketplace than there was when rules were put in so paywalls should be met with exodus.

There is almost NO competition.  I am lucky to have both FiOS and Altice (formerly cablevision) as an option.  Neither has caps and FiOS really delivers 50/50.  4 or 5 years ago when I last had Cablevision it sucked during primetime.  Slowed down to a crawl.  Too many apartments on a single node.  FiOS wasn't an option so they didn't give a Fuck.   Apartment complex finally made a deal with FiOS and I bet half the people switched as did I.  The last 6 months or so I was there we switched back to Cable.  It wasn't trash like it was when I had it before.  Probably partly because half the complex moved to FiOS but probably also because they had to fix their shit now that there was a real second option.

 

Many parts of my town can NOT get FiOS nor can two towns over.  They take what the cable company gives them or maybe subscribe to slow Frontier DSL.  

 

How many option do you really have?  I don't count LTE.

I am on the S and get crashes pretty often, no idea what my other squadmates were using, and I understand its game preview but a game that does not run seems like a big problem to sell for money, preview or not

One of the challenges for me in Forza Horizon 3 Forzathon didn't unlock this morning.  The other 3 did.  

 

20 speeds in a buggy.  Did it in the Hot wheels buggy.  Counted them off after doing some of the other challenges and the race.  Still didn't pop.  Put up the achievement tracker and used the buggy you win for winning the race.  Did 4 or 5.  0% progress.

 

Guess they put the B team on Forzathons for FH3.

 

It is just crappy wheel spins and they might unlock later still annoying.

If ANY ISP tries to deny or stifle access to ANYTHING, there would be such an outcry that they would be forced to reverse said action almost immediately.

 

My thing is that ISPs don't have to be that obvious about it. And if they do something, you can bet that it will be framed in a positive way. "We're not slowing access for all users; we're boosting speeds for x and y services for platinum users" (or whatever). Also, I never underestimate average consumers when it comes to not knowing what's going on. I think with the vast majority of people, anything short of walling off Facebook and Netflix for a fee is not going to be enough to provoke outrage.

I like the philosophy behind a smaller government, but the problem is that in many ways, a smaller government now means trusting corporations not to be assholes. Like with net neutrality - everyone's argument now is basically "Come on, they would never do that because everyone would get pissed," etc. That may be true, but do we really want to trust corporations to make up their own rules? I think that's a bad idea about 99% of the time and history is littered with proof of that fact.

 

Random thought related to all this talk about net neutrality/throttling/data caps and recent gaming issues -- what if this leads to increased consumer demand for single player/offline games...

Finally, a silver lining!
