I get what you're trying to say, but in this case, the article has direct quotes from Trump confirming that it's something he'd like to do. "Fake news" and media bias only goes so far when you're working with actual things that he said or did.

There's a problem with that approach.  Even when using direct quotes, a little digging would most likely turn up direct quotes that contradict the other ones.  Kinda like the game of "Trump does something, find an old tweet of his whining about Obama (or someone else) doing the exact same thing".  I'm waiting for the one about 3 chiefs of staff in 2 years preventing Obama's agenda from making any progress to circle back.  On his 2nd chief 8 months in, does even an old Marine like Kelly have the fortitude to stick it out?

 

Anyone winning anything on the forza turn the key sweepstakes. Won a driver outfit dlc yesterday and won a hoonigan car pack today

Is the Hoonigan pack given as a code or just added to your account?

I didn’t notice on the hoonigan pack but the driver outfit said they’d email me how to redeem it

It's more it looks so generic and they can't fully commit to the reboot storyline (she's a bike courier? really?) and instead needlessly have to add a bunch of things from the Jolie movies. It just looks like a big ol pile of "Why?" in the trailer.

Bike courier was one of the first things I read when I clicked the link on the trailer and it had a brief synopsis, it's not in the trailer, but yeah it's in the actual movie and I guess that's how she gets her tomb raiding abilities? I Guess?

Fortnite Battle Royale will be FREE to everyone on Sept 26th, don't need the base game. Squads will also be added on that day.

 

Is Battle Royale really free?
Yes, starting on September 26. We launched a public test and it worked better than we expected. We want the game to reach as many players as possible, so we decided to release Battle Royale for free sooner than we anticipated.

Sounds like a Fuck you to the suckers that paid for early access.

 

 

Is there a thread for OG Xbox games that focuses on sales and the upcoming BC?

I don't really see how you would keep it alive. "Sales" of Xbox Prime games don't really exist at the moment, and we've had very few games actually announced for BC still. I think just Crimson Skies and Fusion Frenzy.

Probably emulator related if all those old games got updates..

I'm hoping for some secret BC improvement outside of extra frame rate and Anti Aliasing.

 

Far Cry, GreedFall, OKami and LA Noire added to Major Nelson's X List.

Still no sign of Doom (shown at E3) and The Evil Within 2 (on their own damn website... Bethesda.

 

I don't remember seeing Mafia 3 there but It's there now.

 

Also standard XBox One X's go up for pre-order sometime today.

We are now 48ish days away from It's launch.

Here is the list of One X enhanced games. --> https://www.xbox.com...x-enhanced-list

 

I've never even heard of some of these games.

 

Also, with Anthem being informally dubbed as the "Destiny Killer," I think it's going to have its work cut out to accomplish that. :)

It's supposed to be free. Xbox One Edition just had a small update. When I booted it up it gave me an in game prompt to take me to the store for the new version. I already had it owned from the Beta though, so I don't know if that's supposed to make it free.

 

The transition seems kind of weird. Their FAQ says a few things like the Mass Effect mashup pack won't transfer, but the in game prompt specifically said it will be coming later. It looks like you have to "re-buy" stuff you own that is available, it shows up free in a new store. It said there was a big update to the Halo pack but I don't know if that means for previous Xbone users or new other platform users.

There's a microtransaction coin system for stuff now, I guess so purchases can stick together across all platforms. I don't really have a problem with that, as now there seem to be 3rd party creations on here too, but the exchange rate for dollars to Minecraft coins is bullshit. I'm curious if the free custom skins feature they've mentioned before is actually going to come. Seems counter productive with them selling skins.

 

The Realms crossplay has a max of 10 players on a server for $8 a month, or just 2 players for $4. I hope you can play splitscreen still while using the service.

 

Overall it seems like a great upgrade, but some of the changes are going to take getting used to. I was worried that Mojang was going to treat this version as secondary, but they made a lot of little changes console players wanted just from the short Beta.

The entire game is going Free to Play when early access is done, so they knew what they were getting into.

Yeah, I'm just glad I held off. You don't get to play the main mode, but it is kind of shitty if you bought it thinking you'd have exclusive access until some time in 2018 like they said.

They're offering refunds if you bought the game between when Battle Royale was added two weeks ago and when it goes free. Nothing lost if that was the only thing you wanted out of it.

I haven't played the Fortnite Battle Royale mode, but it seems like that wouldn't be the smartest way for them to introduce the game to the general, non-paying public.  That mode is brand new and the standard mode is surely more fleshed out.  I'm enjoying the standard mode quite a lot and would guess the Battle Royale mode might only feel like a weak add-on to the main game at this point - especially since the game was likely never designed to be made for battle royale.  If I was the dev or publisher, I wouldn't want to turn people away by showing what is potentially the weakest part of my game first - even if battle royale type games are the hot thing right now.

Last I saw it sounded like this mode didn't have any progression or whatever tied to it. They must plan on changing that fast. Have to sell something if it's free, and they clearly made this decision to get players before PUBG actually hits.

I don't think so, I'm perfectly fine letting more players into the world of Fortnite and with the popularity of Battle Royale games it's not hard to see why they went this route.

Yeah pretty much, you grab a few goodies depending on which edition you pick up, fund a developer that's actually coming through with their initial concept and have a fun time in the meantime. I'm content.

Well I don't care what they do with the BR add-on as the base game is where it's at and quite frankly the more people that come into this game I think the better. The word needs to get out that Fortnite is hot tamale! The base game is a lot more but the Battle Royale mode is a good taste of Fortnite.

Didn't get anything yesterday but I got the Driver Gear today and yeah they said they'd email me info about it.

 

Edit: Eh, I liked the trailer for Tomb Raider, I was fairly surprised how much closeness it is with the game (Tomb Raider 2013) - that could be good or bad, we'll have to see.

It's just going to have cosmetic stuff sold for it with nothing that affects gameplay beyond maybe getting outfits that make you easier for others to spot in-game.

Man. I'm on TA every day, I'm dedicated to 100%ing most of the shit I play, and I have a pretty lengthy achievement streak going....but I never feel compelled to participate in any of those community events. Achievement hunting is more like a hobby to me, I don't want to make it competitive.

I hear ya. I'm not expecting even to make it our of the group phase. I'm taking this as an opportunity to try a bunch of games in my backlog, and figure out what I'm going to tackle next. Like, I own all the Gears of War series. Played through Chapter 1 on the original GoW last night. I might tackle that series now, you know? Or maybe I'll play through some other games. I'm not sure. I'm using this as a good excuse to play some games.
