I think I solved my screen flicker / snowy static issue. Pretty sure the power strip I'm using wasn't giving enough power for 4k display, which was happening for menus/movies/etc. I set the resolution on the One S to 1080p after it kept happening this morning, and then it stopped.

 

Possible the TV wasn't getting enough power for 4k, which would explain why the PS3 wasn't doing it, but either way, so far so good.

You talking about a problem like this? I had a huge thread on Reddit.

 

https://www.reddit.c..._on_xbox_one_x/

 

My friend ended up replacing his XBox one X and the problems went away, but also replaced his TV. So it was either the TV or XBox.

 

It wan't a constant issue to warrant the full replacement but his X was in warranty and he was getting a new TV anyways.

Yep, that's exactly it. That's actually the thread I read through which made me change the output resolution to 1080p. So far, so good with the resolution change, so it may be a wattage issue.

Everyone has a different definition of worth.

It's "this should of probably been in the game" DLC that finishes up the story, regular game ends kind of abruptly

You must’ve been seeing one movie a month then, otherwise that doesn’t add up. Regardless, MP appears about done. I haven’t had any issues so far since my fave theater takes e-ticketing, but the writing is on the wall.

4 movies plus 9.99 is $19.95 or $24 out of pocket. so I was alittle off. Did try to use MP today since I'm paid up till the 1st and lo and behold I kept getting a error message.

If you enjoyed Limbo and Inside then yeah it's probably worth it. I quite enjoyed it but I'm waiting for the dlc to go on sale at some point, I'm missing the last 2 chapters

If you figure anything out let me know. The X does use more power, first I read much of the S but I think someone posted on reddit issues with the S to. The S uses a lot less voltage/power. Both our newer TCL tvs use less.

Still looking forward to this game.

The S definitely uses less voltage, but I think the power draw between the television and the 4K output it's just not getting enough power from my setup. if it starts happening with 1080p then I will test it more with other platforms to see if it actually is the television or the console.

2 Days remaining on the sale... I guess it's time to review what there is and make sure I'm not passing on anything I would play before the Christmas sale.

So I’ve been trying to buy Boom Boom Rocket for weeks now, but I get an error both online and on my 360. I contacted Microsoft support, and they confirmed that it was a problem on their end, and they opened a ticket for me. This was about two weeks ago. Now they’re ghosting me. I’ve sent two emails saying that I still can’t purchase it, and have gotten no response. It’s really frustrating :(

Debating between The Surge:  Complete Edition, Castlevania:  Harmony of Despair and its DLC, DeBlob 2 (to play with the kids) and X-Morph Defense.  I can probably only get two of those four options.  Any thoughts on which route to go?  Would appreciate any advice.  Thanks.

Wasn't on my radar and looks like something I'd like. Shame though that there not planning X enhancements because like Diablo 3 these are the kind of things that really look good in 4k.

It depends on if you want solo gameplay or co-op.

 

The Surge is a bit like Dark Souls but not as polished. The main issue I had was the areas felt very similar and the character control felt off. You can select specific body parts to dismember which was nifty.

 

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair is not a typical Castlevania game. More of an arcade-style kill the enemies and get to the boss in the time limit and kill him. I can't recall if your character can level up or get better gear. It can be fun with the right co-op partner. I never played the DLC for it so I'm not sure what all it adds aside from a few characters and levels. It's not backward compatible and your guess is as good as anyone else's if it will ever go that way.

 

I played the first DeBlob and I had some fun with it not sure if anything has changed for the second one I assume it's more of the same just different levels. What I played was fun in short burst it got very repetitive at times and had me wishing the levels were shorter. In the first game if you did not 100% the level before completing it when you went back into it you had to start over from scratch which made me say screw it and stop playing.

 

 X-Morph I've never played sorry so I can't give an opinion.

I ordered a ton of things knowing my GCU was going to expire. Now, when something shows up in the mail, I’m like, oh, I forgot I preordered that.

So when KH III finally comes in my mailbox in 2030, i’ll really be shocked.

Punt. If picking one, I'd say get the one to play with the kids.

I've been playing Enter the Gungeon all week. It can be hard as balls, but the gameplay feels great and the guns are very entertaining.

Would it be safe to assume Crackdown 2 will go BC sometime before 3 is released? (Ha) It's on sale for it's lowest price according to Storeparser. The original went BC earlier this year.

I'm gonna say yes, unless there are some serious licensing issues no MS game should not go BC. So basically anything not racing.

 

The questions going forward are: GWG? Gamepass? Even dirt cheap you have to consider the odds.

I've only played a tiny bit of the first one, it felt nothing like Halo to me, but I know people love the first three.

I played all the mass effect games, and none of them play /shoot like Halo. The shooting can get fun though, especially in 2 & 3, but it's far from what Halo is like. If you still have a 360 I think the demo for mass effect 2 is still up. There's enough shooting in that demo for you to gauge if you like it or not.

They're action rpgs, so half of the game is shooting and the other half is walking around looking at stuff/talking to people. As far as the shooting goes: it's more like Gears of War in that you need to slam yourself behind waist-high cover more often than not. The first game's combat is VERY clunky, even when it first game out but it improved dramatically in the sequel.

 

ME1-3 is a trilogy, and as such things you do carry over. If you decide to skip 1 I'd would suggest getting the dlc comic thingy in 2 that lets you put in what choices you would have picked if you played 1 because the default choices prevents you from seeing a lot of things. As a newcomer you might like Andromeda, but it is for the most part terrible. Also the multiplayer in 3 and Andromeda are not split-screen.
