For those that missed it, Fortnite is on Switch now and can crossplay with xbox/pc/mobile. But if you've ever used your account on PS4, even just for 5 minutes you're forever locked out of switch and would have to make a brand new account. None of your progress or paid skins carry over because they're linked to ps4.

WOOO!!! Friendless single player master race 4-4-4-4-4-4 Life!

Yes but those 4 games all had gameplay shown and at the latest are coming out 2019 with the only exception being Kojimas Game, I am disspointed with Xbox because all they showed was their known sequels, dont get me wrong I am looking forward to Foza and Halo but it just seems they are working towards next gen already 

 

The Last of Us 2 is coming out this year? NIOH 2 is coming out this year? RE2 Remake is coming out this year? It's more then Kojima's game.

 

MS won this year plan and simple. Oh and gamers, especially the cross play news. Unless your on a Sony system you can't cross play.

I never got around to playing Destiny but just played Destiny 2 since it was on free play this last weekend. Looks like I can get the base game on disk for $10. Anyone want to give thoughts about it?

 

Are you talking about the first game for $10? The first game you can get a copy with all the DLC for around $30, so that's better than the base game for $10 since you'll encounter DLC items in the base game that you can't use. If you think you'll want to do more than the main story I'd suggest the collection over the base game.

Ahh okay. I haven't played the second one for a while. If you weren't able to play the entire campaign during the free play weekend, I'd say that's worth $10. Not sure what's been updated or if they did the same thing as the first game where if you're in base game areas the enemies can drop DLC items that can't be used without the DLC. I sold my copy because I felt like I had gotten enough out of it, but enjoyed what I had played.

All those new Studios are making games for the next console not the current ones, Ehh I still Sony had a bigger showing with games and gameplay if anything the PC Gaming Show was best for me this year 

I think Its safe to say both studios are working on their next gen games. Wouldn't be surprised to see The Last of Us 2 have a PS5 version like the first one.

Game was not playable for the majority of people who purchased it, for a significant period of time after release. In addition to my own experience, the forums on their own website verify this as fact. However, I do respect your right to be wrong.

i've played the game for about 150 hours so i would think i would know the difference between a game that works and doesn't work, but i respect your right to be a dick

Hollow Knight looked good. I would be more excited for Smash Bros. if I actually played any of those games. So for that reason I wasn't all that impressed with Nintendo's conference.

 

 

Are there any more Mixer events coming up for free swag?

I don't think these will work. I'm pretty sure the ToS on that deal said the content had to be $10 and up.

Ya those links were just for future use coz we know those Partners enable the Mixer Direct Purchase feature, just what they have doesn't qualify atm.

I haven't shopped at GameStop in years but my bro wanted me to try to get some E3 Exclusive Master Chief Camo Pop Vinyl toy thing.  He sent me a link and it gave me an option to try to see if stores have it to hold me fore.  I select a store and requested one for hold.  Sure enough I get the Hold Confirmation email.  So I went there when they opened, I was the second person there, no one was there just me the other person and one employee.  I told the employee what I was there for and she just told me they didn't have any or they were for preorders.  Anyone else tried to get this and somehow preordered?  I wasn't sure if it was available to preorder or not.  I just emailed GameStop and told them my experience lol. 

Yes, the three E3 Gamestop Exclusive Funko POPs were released this morning - some stores (mine) only received two of each (Gold King Dice from Cuphead, Active Camo Master Chief, and 8 Bit Black Hole Mega Man).  They were not pre-orderable.  Maybe someone called and had one held or (I assume, more likely) the employee was purchasing them.

 

 

 

I never got around to playing Destiny but just played Destiny 2 since it was on free play this last weekend. Looks like I can get the base game on disk for $10. Anyone want to give thoughts about it?

 

$10 for Destiny 2 seems like a solid value.  If you enjoyed what you played, buying Destiny 2 with the already released DLC may be a better bet, but either way, you'd get a fair amount of playtime.  It also depends on how much you like doing the same thing over and over.  I, myself, play Destiny 2 every week to do all three characters for all milestones except the Raid and after that, sometimes I use the app to help others with quests.  The repetition means I don't have to think all that much which is helpful for unwinding after being a therapist all day.  And accomplishing some things - even though they're relatively meaningless - like getting all the faction ornaments - is fairly rewarding (to me).

New console talk is silly to me since Nvidia hasn't even released the new cards yet. The Xbox One X is so powerful for a console I'm not sure what they put in a new one right now. At this point I also don't see why you would need to reset the console. If PS5 and Xbox One 2 can't play games from current gen, that would really be a shame since most likely it will just be improvments in graphics/processing and the same arcitecture.


I don't think Nvidia needs to release an updated GPU chip in order for MS to improve the Xbox One X. Indeed it is powerful but the achilles heel is the ancient Jaguar CPU. My Xbox X doesn't hold a candle to my gaming PC with a modern i7 and 1080ti. My PC destroys it in 4k gaming.

As far as backwards compatiblity with next gen, I don't have much hope for Sony, however the Xbox One has an OS with that is based off of Windows 10. I can see them keeping the Xbox family compatible for some time.

Does the Xbox need to replace your PC though? I was a PC gamer for years and years but after getting married and having kids, I now prefer the convenience of a console. My earlier point was that with how powerful the Xbox One X is, if they released a Xbox One X 2 next year with a full 1070 and a better GPU... I still have a 1080p tv, so for me the Xbox One X is already exceeding my console gaming needs so as long as it plays the new games I won't need a new one yet. Now if it's 2021, I'll probably be ready for a new console by then but I'm pretty happy with my Xbox One X right now. I just want a new Halo for it more than a whole new Xbox.

Ubisoft said in an interview that they expect to see one more generation of consoles and that's it. They are betting on cloud streaming. Who knows?

I narrowed down my E3 purchases to GTAV (I haven't played it yet) and Disneyland for the kids. :)

If you purchase a game off of a Mixer partner you get $5 back though it only qualifies for games they're streaming at the moment. Usually there is like a pink pop up notification under to tell you if it qualifies.
