One of my friends just said the same thing in our party chat. He was playing Overwatch with us the other night, but when he was done he popped his disc out and it was Kingdom Hearts. Wonder what’s going on.


Tried a few other games and none worked so evidently not a system wide change or issue. But played something else, went back to AC7 and it still works without a disc.

I think it's random glitches with the UI that's affecting the license check system. I went to delete Sky Force Anniversary about a month after it was removed from gamepass and inadvertently discovered it was still working. It continued to load for 2 or 3 days after that before finally failing the license check.

Speaking of GWG, I finally fired up QUBE 2. It's great. 2/3 of the way through, it's a tad on the easy side, but it's still a lot of fun. The original may be better by a small margin, and both games are on a short list of titles which come close to living up to Portal.

I saw this the other day and felt like it is nearly worthless if you keep up with the industry. They had nothing to add to the list but already known projects and vague speculation.

Any reports on if the XB1 version of Final Fantasy 7 has the same music bugs as the PS4 version?  (Wrong music playing during various scenes, including one of the biggest moments in the game).

 

Wait, I played through Final Fantasy 7 on PS4 and didn't notice any glitches. I thought the sound issues were on the Playstation Classic....?

 

Also, it doesn't release on Xbox One until March 26th so may be awhile till it's tested

Anyone have any thoughts about Watchdogs 2? I was disappointed with the first but this looks better. Is it worth it to get the gold edition or is standard good enough?


I did not enjoy the first Watchdogs but I found the 2nd one to be a lot better. I only played through the standard edition so I'm not sure if the DLC is worth it.

I'm the same. I didn't like the first WD game, but really liked the second. I also got the season pass and loved it. What play style did you go with? I went gun free. The game gives you so many different hacker tools that guns feel unnecessary, especially considering the narrative. 

 

It's funny, I don't usually buy season passes, but Ubi's SP's tend to grab my attention.

Ubisoft usually does a better job with dlc than other companies. I’ve played a bit of the trial and I like the setting and it seems like a fun open world. The Gold edition is only $11 more than the standard. Do you think the dlc story wise is worth it?

I think I’m just going to pay the $33 for AC Odyssey Gold even though I have the vanilla digitally. I have a feeling we won’t see the SP go on sale until well after the release of AC III. And with the remaster alone going for $40, it’s still worth it.

I wish the ac oydessy gold game logo actually was the gold edition logo, same for a few other games I got.


But crackdown 3 is a pretty fun game, been playing the past few days.

Same here. I managed to get $20 xbox credit for $5, so that really helps soften the blow. But, now I'm debating on just getting something else entirely with the money.

I agree. Ubi does DLC in a way that I don't really find that offensive. You're getting extra content and they aren't stopping you from getting in game collectibles.

 

I dug the DLC for WD2. The T-Bone missions and No Compromise were a lot of fun. I can't remember Human Conditions at the moment. It's been a couple years since I played it. If you can get your hands on the Zodiac missions, that would be awesome. 

 

I just really got into the game. That doesn't always happen and may not happen for you, but I found myself thinking about playing it when I was doing work, and losing sleep because I didn't want to stop. The game has its negatives, but they're easy to move past. Also, people complained about the main characters being too hipster, but they manage to balance between serious and humorous.

Had a $5 credit for Bestbuy and used it to get a $10 Xbox GC. Then got EA Access, downloaded the Anthem trail, got 6000 rewards points, used that with 2000 points I already had, and got a $10 gift card. Then cancelled EA Access.

Xbox game pass trial code: 667W2-2X742-4RQFF-7H7TM-X7FPZ

I prefer lurkers to the regulars who think they're entitled to other people property because they made a post about their favorite subject. I usually won't give codes on here because of the entitled .

If you buy games you don't play and brag about your backlog with 16 million children starving in this country.....leave it alone. I think you're sick and you need help...seriously.

This guy probably lurked a bunch of codes in the past and waited for the right time to get his Revengeance by posting a game pass....trial? to talk shit.

Yeah, I heard the characters are hipsters but it does take place in San Francisco...
I’ve been wanting a modern open world game to play but I can’t stand the characters in GTA games(except Vice City). While I played the trial, I had fun hacking other people a lot. Gold edition does have the Zodiac missions. I appreciate the feedback. I already planned on getting AC: Rogue Remastered and now I’ll pick up Watchdogs 2 Gold too. Thanks.

Cool. That would explain where I got the Zodiac missions. It just wasn't listed in the Season Pass on Xbox.com.

When is the next usual $1 Game Pass drop?  Mine just expired and I have an offer of $15 for 3 months, but I have an oreo 7 day code and a MS rewards 3 month code.

 

I've got expiring credit burning a hole in my pocket.  $4 expires today and $20 more over the next month.  

 

Considering Assassins Creed Odyssey Gold but I'm way behind as well as a version of Watchdogs 2, GR Wildlands, Call of Juarez Gunslinger and Steep X Games Gold Ed.  Too many choices...

I was watching for your response, this was a let down. I thought you had cracked some secret to getting a $20 gift card for $5 with some glitch... but instead, you spent $500 at best buy to get .5 points each until you got 250 points to trade in for a $5 gift card and then used $5 cash to get a $10 gift card and then used 8,000 bing points for a $10 gift card from bing.

So I watched the Trailer on Pokemon Sword and Shield. Do you think any reviewers will hold it to the same standard they did for Crackdown 3 of "This is to much like Crackdown 1 6/10" or will Pokemon get "Wow, I got to pick Fire, Water or Grass and then battled Pokemon just like 20 years ago but now in 3D, 9/10!".

Is it as simple as using a VPN and your region on Xbox.com to redeem a foreign game code? Then switching the region back and It’ll be on your normal US account?

You don't need a VPN, just switch your Xbox's region.

I see foreign codes on places like Gameflip cheap but was always hesitant to give it a shot (some do mention being “easy to redeem using a VPN”).

Knew you could change regions to get games on other XBL stores but wasn’t so sure about code redemption.

WTF is this? I mean really if this is not a troll then I can only say is it might be time to prioritize some things. 22 posts in 7.5 years and THIS is what you choose to do with your time? 

 

This site is about a HOBBY. Big deal if people here collect some game they will never play. More than their right. The "what about the children" shtick is so old also. As long as the people on here are not buying games when they should be buying their own children food then you can just Fuck off with the entitled BS.

Oh yeah, don't get me wrong, I'm buying Pokemon Sword or Shield on day 1, especially since I have 3 young kids that like to play Switch. I think they should have made this game back on the N64, I wanted a 3D Pokemon once we had 3D but all we ever got was Pokemon Snap and Pokemon Stadium. I'm pretty sure I already know what this game is, and I'm fine with that. I just see irony in that I bet a lot of reviewers give it 8's, 9's, and 10's even though I bet the gameplay and game is pretty much like every other pokemon game before it, but maybe they will surprise me and it will be something totally different. I just love when I listen to IGN podcasts and they get on there high horse about how they have to give objective reviews and then Nintendo makes a game that is super similar to previous titles in that franchise line and they gush over it with the Nintendo colored glasses like the rest of us that have Nintendo nostalgia.
