How do you guys convince your wife/girlfriend/fleshlight that xbox isn't a "waste of time"?

my girlfriend is deadset that it's useless

I just respond with “where’s my sandwich?”

For BC talk, I think all of the Star Wars games, including the bad ones, have a decent chance at becoming BC, if EA has any power over this AND they start selling digital copies of them. LucasArts must have owned all rights to everything, so Disney should now. At the very least Pandemic, that was bought and killed by EA, made the original Battlefront games.

Disney/LucasArts is the one that released the old Star Wars games on PS3/PS4, so that would be the company response for anything that happens on the BC front.

Aspyr actually ported KOTOR (as well as Jade Empire) on iOS. Not sure what their relationship is with EA or Disney. They seem to be independent of them but must have been granted rights from Bioware under EA.

On a different note, while organizing my games today, I found an unopened copy of Victor Vran overkill edition. So far, it’s pretty great! I think this will get me through until Black Friday.

I don't think they have any direct relations with either company, just contracts. Looking at their Wikipedia page, it seems like they specialize in porting and has done it with many different franchises/publishers.

My wife of 14 years puts up with my gaming because she knows how much her friends' husband's spend on golf, which could also be considered useless. Between the constant need for newer/better golf clubs and green fees, it can get expensive quickly. Even spending money on a new console like X1X doesn't look bad in comparison.

I have KotOR on Amazon Fire TV (2016 version).  The UI scaling is fantastic - its in widescreen, running at what appears to be 720p/60fps.  The controller is identical to that of the Xbox 360.  Its the KotOR I mis-remember playing on the original Xbox - because of course it looks considerably better in a side-by-side comparison.  Amazing experience.

 

I can't for the life of me figure out why we haven't seen this version come to devices beyond iOS and Android.  Does Microsoft hold the console rights and are insisting on that the title not come to Sony/Nintendo - leading to hardball with Disney?  Does Disney not want to see non-canon sold on consoles?  (That doesn't make any sense, either.)  Someone, somewhere has an answer.

 

All I know is it doesn't make any damn sense that some cheap quasi-console from Amazon is still going to be the best way to play my favorite role-playing game of all time whereas my new $500 6-TFlops Xbox One X is going to be stuck with a 4x3 boxed image with the UI taking up half the screen.  ...I mean, I'm happy we're getting KotOR on Xbox - I really am - but this nonsense needs to get sorted out.

^^ I hear you. I also understand that Jade Empire also looks better for the mobile versions. Controls aren’t so hot but if you play it on something like Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV or Shield TV, you’ve basically got a console version with a real controller.

It would be nice if those versions were ported to Xbox One and even PS4. Aspyr deserves credit for the visual upgrade.

Neogaf had a huge shitstorm tonight apparently. Claims of the founder sexually assaulting someone, ALL of the mods resigning, posts about this were being instantly deleted, and now the site is down. Probably going to be all over the gaming sites tomorrow. It's ridiculous how all-encompassing these awful people are, but it's good people are finally coming forward. I don't think it will do a lot very quickly in Hollywood, but smaller places like this with people who aren't millionaires will hopefully clean up a lot of the garbage.

Tell her/her/it that's it's either playing videogames or having more sex.

It should work with the first two, at least.

Sound like you need shown out too if being against assault is "nuthink".

Excited about OGBC titles being shown, still crossing my fingers for Metal Wolf Chaos.

Can anyone name a :360: or :xb1: game they would play even if it didn't have achievements? I apparently do that already with Destiny...


I would play Dark Souls 1 if it didn’t have achievements. I put 200 hours into that game AFTER 100%-ing it.

I’ve been enjoying the hell out of my SNES mini. Kicking my son’s ass in Mario Kart after he said he could beat me was all the achievement I needed.

A few things tend to happen when you pass the age of 40 ... and no harm in feeling this way, so long as you still act morally, responsibly and with respect and consideration for others


1. You realize that you've gotten too old and have too much responsibility to worry about "asking permission" to do small, relatively inconsequential things

2. You stop caring about who disagrees with you, who doesn't like you, who may be butthurt, etc. because of something you said or did

3. You realize you've probably lived more days on this Earth than you have left (then reflect again on points #1 and #2 above)

Once as a kid I cried as my parents drove from ny to nj. That was a far cry.

Prince of Persia: Sands of Time was on GC so you may have played it, but that game was excellent. Combat was decent and the environmental puzzles really made you think for navigating 3D spaces, IMHO was a big inspiration for some of Uncharted's level designs. Shame the HD ports last gen of the 3 games were PS3 exclusive.

 

Knights of the Old Republic is a must, unless you just hate Star Wars. As happy as I'll be to see KOTOR go BC, I'd rather have the updated port on X1 and pay $15 or $20 for it, but if I can put my old OG disc in my X1 and play it, that's pretty cool too.

 

Platformer fans never shut up about Psychonauts. I never got around to it but I may finally give it a shot, especially if the OG version were to be BC.

 

People also love Ninja Gaiden. While I enjoy difficult games, NGB is a game I never got the hang of and was way too fucking hard.

As a gamer and a golfer, this is true. Granted, I’ve played the same irons for 20 years, over replaced my driver, woods, wedges and putter at the rate of one club per year since I got back into the game 5 years ago.

Yeah, I remember PoP. KotOR I’ll play for sure! I didn’t even notice it in the pic. I’ll pick up Psychonauts if it’s cheap enough and I’ll probably pass on NG. I had one of them on 360. Maybe it’ll go bc.

Anyways, thanks!

I use the “deflect and obfuscate” method.

I never tell her how much GS credit I have. That way, when I get something, there’s never any cash out of my account. She wouldn’t have any idea of something is new, anyway. I set it up, it sits for a few months before she recognizes it and I say “seriously? I got that a while back and told you all about it” and she says “oh, yeah. Now I remember that.” Problem taken care of.

I always keep an extra, empty guitar case in the house. That way, when I find a great guitar for a price I can’t refuse, the empty case gets filled and a new empty case shows up.

I’m the saver in the family, though, so the other side of that is that I have to pretend that there’s no money at all in savings, because she would want to spend every last penny if she could. So, every time we have to pull any money out of savings, I complain and make it very uncomfortable to pull money out. Unbeknownst to her, there’s always thousands of dollars in savings...

I used to love hunting and fishing games in the 90s when it was slim pickings 

 

not sure who plays those now as whenever I research their gameplay they look like they've barely changed or improved

 

farcry 3 is my hunting game anyway but it would be cool if someone made a really fun open world hunting game that didn't feel like some sort of duck dynasty style cash grab
