Completely off topic. God of War is amazing so far but every time I come back to play a PS4 exclusive it just reminds me that even though the dual shock 4 is a big improvement it is still a shit controller compared to the X1.

That's what Cronus is for.

What is this survey everyone is talking about?

What is this survey everyone is talking about?

 

A survey given by Microsoft on the Microsoft Store while you look at games.  Browse some xbox games on the MS store and it should pop, if it's still working as of now.  I clicked maybe 4-5 games before it pops up and asksed me to take a survey.  At the end, you get a $5 gift card.  You'll know it when you see it because on the pop up screen it'll tell you that you'll be rewarded with the gift card.

What time do BC games go live again? Anxious to try out Jedi Academy. Debating on getting either Republic Commando or Mercanaries. Commando was cool back in the day but fear it may feel bland by today’s shooter standards.

Same here! I bought Jedi Academy yesterday excited to play it again and forgot it wouldn’t be live until today lol

I wish Jedi Outcast was BC too. Maybe one day. I remember I enjoyed that one a little more than Academy even though Academy has the duel lightsabers and I think some other additions.

I haven't been interested in the Battle Pass contents in the past, but that preview looks pretty good...even if I am reminded of that terrible Steel movie starring Shaq.

Bizarre that they still make it pop up if it’s already “full”.

Between mobile and desktop, I just couldn't get the survey to pop.

But I'm stoked for Jedi Academy going BC shortly!

Actually finished two games off game pass now and it only took me a month. The Final Station wasn't really what I was expecting at all, thought it was going to be a permadeath rougelike thing but was a pleasantly surprising linear narrative deal. I liked it.
 
Now can I do three in the next month before my two months is up? Probably not!

Did you not do the first Mixpot thing? Final Station was free along with Rare Replay then.

How did you manage to continue playing the game? I liked the narrative and exploring, but once you run into a crowd of zombies, the game turns into any other pixel art shooter. That's usually when I turn off the game.

I just wish we got a better D-pad. It's better than the 360's but it still sucks compared to Nintendo's non-Joycon options or the PS4's. I think the PS4's controller overall is pretty decent, I just don't like the triggers or the stick layout.

The Elite Wireless controller with the concave dish type D pad cover is all I can comfortably use now.

 

GameStop's website mentions the CronusMax Plus but it isn't available online or within 250 miles of me.  Does anyone know of another such adapter that GameStop sells?

I've got it, that dish is not good for traditional d-pad stuff in my eyes. I don't like it for 2D games or fighters.

when I got pass, I played through hue, late shift, super lucky tale, and nba playground for a quick 4k, working on letter quest right now, pretty decent if you like things like scrabble

I loved Letter Quest.  I think there is just enough challenge there to make it fun and replay the levels.  I did find myself going back to certain words.  It's nice to play with multiple people, that way they see words you don't.

I've never gotten anything from any of the times they've done that.

 

Some of it was cheese tactics, lots of punching, sometimes having to eat losing half your life. I thought the combat worked OK enough but clearly wasn't the focus since it usually felt very low stakes with it often checkpointing right before a difficult encounter.

Cool playing Jedi Academy and looks decent. But it is pretty dated in comparison to some of the others. Probably similar to Morrowind in that regard.

I'd be curious to hear impressions on Republic Commando and Mercanaries for anyone who has them. About to install KOTOR 2 while I hear back to work.

That game's multiplayer has Bot support, right?

 

That was my first Xbox Live game back in the day.  I know competing against other players online isn't possible now, so I guess playing against Bots would be the closest equivalent...

Miramir runs pretty good on the X outside of the usual stuttering loading big towns and the lag in certain spots. At least seems to run better then the standard PUBG map. Granted this is with the latest performance patch on the test servers, so the main one might run better once rolled out.

I’ve never played MP on it. But it has a full story campaign. Maybe you’re thinking of the old Battlefront games?

I'm pretty sure it has bot support because I played this a ton on Xbox live and remember setting up lobbies with friends and bots.

I never played the campaign.

Hiring a Low-Rent Mark Hamil sound-alike seemed pointless when pre-sequel trilogy Mark Hamill seemed low-rent enough on the pay scale.... and I love Mark Hamill.

Jedi Academy does indeed look pretty crappy even at 4k, but it plays well!

 

KOTOR 2 looks a bit better then I recall but not as impressive as Jade Empire was to me. It also seems to run at 30fps where as KOTOR1 and Jade Empire had unlocked frame rates. But that might just be the starting areas. I'll wait for videos to go up to be the verdict on that.

Still pissed at myself for not knowing how soon this would come when I bought my P607. Will be like four days outside my exchange period when the new one comes out.

Ah well, still happy with what I have.

I hope something is wrong with the new one. ;)

I'm tempted, don't have Dolby Vision on mine and really want to upgrade to a 65 inch, sitting a little too far away for the 55.
