Well, I did luck out tonight and found a great dinner in the food depositor outside a paint store of a used coffee filter with cigarette butts in it so...yes.

Just filed my taxes.  Figured I'd get them done a little earlier this year for a change.

No, but I went to college with a bunch of people who were.  Trying to remember where I parked in the student lot - Beamer, Beamer, Beamer, LeBaron, Beamer ... oops, went one too far.

That's an honest and fairly encouraging quote.

Well, as nice as it is for Phil to say that, it doesn’t make me hopeful of a big new first party announcement at E3. The whole it will “take time” seems like a cop out.

 

I mean the XB1 launched every bit as bad as the PS3 if not worse so not owning up to the mistakes would be foolish. They flubbed the hardware, the software, the messaging, all of it. They've turned it around and absolutely nailed the hardware and the messaging and pulling the generation into 4K/HDR. AAA games take time though and MS was very publicly proclaiming that exclusives were dead and by reports after the fact didn't even counter offer on a lot of third party stuff when it was being shopped around. Pretty much everything they banked on for the last two years flopped or died in development and you can't just recover from that overnight. Hopefully they have multiple things in the pipeline though or things could be very, very grim looking if they don't have something to build some hype at E3 (besting Nintendo or Sony this year seems entirely unfathomable right now though). Just got to get the software side on track and they can recover. Wasn't until half way through last gen that PS3 started to hit its stride with the flood of exclusives and made up that seemingly insurmountable console sales lead (surpassing 360 even by some estimates). If MS sticks to their Xbox is Xbox messaging and talk of forward compatibility they could really seize that mindshare back as we head towards whatever's next if they build that momentum back up.

For a game that's mediocre at best (See of thieves) the dlc that's floating around in the trade thread is stupid expensive.Which in 2-3 months from now everyone will jump ship and forget the game ever existed.

Quoted for future use.
See you in July!

How's the ghost recon wildlands season pass content?
I think it's 24 for the base and 33 for the golden edition?
I have the game for ps4, but last I checked the extra content wasn't on sale.
Don't know if I want to double dip for the extras.

Owning all of the current systems, I still play my X1 more than any of them (save BOI on the Switch.) Stupidely enough it has always come down to the fact that I enjoy the XBox controller more than the PS or Pro controller. Direct quote from a "fanboy" when I mentioned this on social media, "My PS4 controller is fine to me but I guess if you have sensitive hands play with a lesser system."

Just lovely.

Hadn't heard of it and saw it was just 35% off for the sale, so didn't look any deeper.  But then I saw this on the marketplace page :

 

Splasher is the latest project from Romain Claude, former Game Designer and Level Designer at Ubisoft (Rayman Origins, Rayman Legends). He put together a small, talented team, including Art Director Richard Vatinel a.k.a Gromy, and Composer and Sound Designer Aymeric Schwartz (Absolver, Rayman Origins or Valiant Hearts) to create Splasher. The game was also developed in partnership with famous speedrunners.

Might have a decision to make before Tuesday morning.

Yeah, I hadn’t read that but now that know that I’m not at all surprised at the pedigree. It’s very well polished and has some nice mechanics involving paint and water. That may sound gimmicky but it’s not. Great level design and a bit of SMB feel to it (though not as difficult). Well worth the ~$10.

Found a $14 GOTY edition on eBay, there were actually a few I found for that price.

Tempting, how is it for a casual? I don't like speedeunning at all and am a little worried at the design focus.

I played the second dlc on PS4 and enjoyed it. The first one sounds kinda stupid to me. Reviews for it weren't very good. Have not motivated myself to play the first dlc. Unless you have someone to play with on XBox I would probably just wait for a sale on the dlc on PSN. The game is fun single player but much more fun co-op. Not sure I would want to replay it solo on XBox.

It can be difficult and expect to die but from what I’ve played so far it isn’t nearly as hard as something like Super Meat Boy. It’s pretty accessible IMO.

This is weird. My Gold status has expired but I swear I had two more months left. I never even got a warning about it expiring. 

 

What is the rule on 14 day trials again? Can I get both free games with that?

 

Edit: The more I look into this the more I am convinced my Gold was cancelled early.

This might be better for some if you've been trying Wildlands during the free weekend. I might grab this since the DLC doesn't sound all that good. $20 before GCU compared to the $24 for the base game digital.

Not a deal at all, but I just noticed Nine Parchments got an Xbox release last month. 4k 60 fps, from Frozenbyte (Trine), gorgeous art design. Co-op wizard combat game where you can cross the streams for interesting results. Friendly fire can make it even more interesting/funny/chaotic. 20 bucks.

Game looks cool. Anyone know if you need to play co-op? Does it play well as a single player?

Game Pass is the new hot deal for MS Rewards.  5,600 points for 1 month, 14,400 for 3 months.  Runs through May 15th or they decide that's enough ("while supplies last").

Nice might as well re-up another month now. I did notice that it actually seems to be cheaper on MS Rewards usually than the $9.99 ARV. I picked it up a week or so ago for 6800 points, while not 1000 points to $1 it seems to be right around that ball park.

Tried playing Red Dead Redemption on Xbox One X on my 1080p TV and it's really bad. Some sort of stuttering or something that makes moving around almost nauseous for me, so I can't touch this until it's fixed.

 

Here's a video of what I've been seeing:

 

Also tried to jump back into Fortnite once more with my Epic account I've used on PC and PS4 and that still doesn't work either.

Sad to hear. Maybe time to get a 4K TV? Wonder if they didn’t test on a 1080P?

Been meaning to post the Digital Foundry analysis. Looks like they also updated it to include the Undead Nightmare DLC. I haven’t tried that yet but the main game is incredible in 4K.

I shouldn't have to spend hundreds of dollars for a game to function the way it should.

I was joking but it really is worth it with an X IMO.

Still, they need to fix it for 1080p.

The costume packs aren't included. If you want a complete game and already have the season pass (included with the deluxe version of the game), you can just buy the premium costume pass and the Evil Ryu, Maverick Mega Man, Warrior Thor, and Gladiator Hulk outfits (these four were included in the SE of the game that had the Infinity Stones).

 

For a fully complete collection of game content, you'd need to be playing on PS4 though, since they also have a special Captain Marvel outfit that is exclusive.

Should be these. The season pass is only the new characters and one included costume for them. That Premium Costume Pass is the rest of those packs combined, for the default characters, though there were a few other costumes that weren't included in this pass. The pre-order Thor stuff and a couple others.

I'd make sure to actually look at the costumes first if considering the costume pass. A lot of the costumes kind of suck so you might be able to get away with one or two of the cheaper packs for the ones you actually like.
