That seems to be the only way now. I'll give it a shot. Thanks!


If you have one I'm fairly certain there's a button for it on the first party media remote. Every once in a while I'll accidentally press it. It may just be a one guide button though. I used to use the hdmi in on the OG X1 for my 360 since the rest of my TV hdmi ports were used and I didn't feel like changing it every time.

I’m actually a bit shocked to see Dead Rising 3 on sale after so many Dead Rising sales without it included. Now if they could just put that final piece to DLC back on sale...

Odd timing with the Fallout 76 premium or whatever they are calling it announcement. A few hours in on The Outer Worlds now and pretty much forgot that Fallout 76 is even a thing.

Is COD and TOW good to preinstall?

So that's not all the DLC? I literally have it in my cart right now about to hit buy.

I can confirm the gifting option works for the 6000 point punch card for call of duty. My account and my brother's account both got it.

Other than 6.59 GBs...CoD has to download everything else for the physical copy. Guess I should have just gotten it digitally to preload. Even with good internet speeds, it’s gonna take almost 2 hours.

It’s missing one piece of DLC. There’s an extra mode that allows you to play as other Dead Rising characters and Capcom characters. I think the Apocalypse edition is still worth a buy as this game has not gone on sale in a really long time.

Ah man, thanks for that link Bloomy! 

As an oldschool Fallout fan: what a fucking shame.

Hmmm, I'm still torn though. Regardless, thanks for answering!

Question on the Amnesia Collection: Did it get to 60 fps ....?

 

I know its not enhanced for Xbox One X, but I hope it'd at least be a locked 1080p/60fps.  Seems like a fun way to spend $9.  (Played through a bit of the first game on PC back in the day.)

 

No it isn't locked on xbox, both games run 30-60 FPS on xbox from what I remember. There is a PS4 Pro patch, but only the first game has a locked 60 FPS the second game varies between 45-60.   That's how I know because I bought it on PS4.

I had it on PS4 and I do not recall a Pro patch, did I miss it or forget? The only thing I can find online is people testing out PS4's "boost mode" with Amnesia. (EDIT: NeoGAF lists that it has Pro support and they list the same slight fps improvement that you mentioned). You would think that the Xbox One version should be a little more stable on the X since it's such an old game and was just released on the system last year (2016 for PS4), unfortunately I can't find any Xbox One X frame rate tests for Amnesia.

Anyone here actually enjoy Agony?  I remember seeing a demo a while back thinking it looks cool, but the reviews are abysmal.

 

 

 

Also... anyone here a TV snob?  I'm looking to purchase one on black friday, and can't get over the fact that I only buy Samsung tvs.  Are they really "better", or is it all in my head?

If you are buying a tv in the next year a Samsung QLED is by far the way to go, bang for buck, imo. I'd recommend waiting until this time next year if you can when you can get a tv with HDMI 2.1. That is the true future.

If you want the most bang for your buck, get a TCL 6 series.

If you want the best TV currently available, get an LG OLED.

I heard there was a quest for the shocktober sale where spend $40 and get 4000 reward points.
Is this right and if so should there be a quest/punch card as I don't see on on my Xbox?

Alienware Arena has a chance to win 3 months of Game Pass.  Watch the trailer for Outer Worlds, then click the button to see if you won.  You'll either get the Game Pass, or you'll get ARP (their XP-like point system, which you can get Dell Rewards money from if you level up enough).

 

I had to play through the whole trailer; skipping ahead didn't work.

 

Just ARP for me, but good luck to the rest of you.

Finally started playing Ori and the Blind Forest this week while I was under the weather. Wish I hadn't slept on this one, it's excellent. Excited the sequel is in development and will release on Game Pass. I'd like to dive into the Outer Worlds tonight but I know if I stop Ori for that long I'll forget what I'm doing.

Got a few hours of Outer Worlds in last night.  When they say it feels like the good parts of Bioshock/Fallout/Mass Effect, they weren't kidding.  The gameplay is fantastic.  The story and dialogue definitely has a feel for both Bioshock and Fallout, with the dark humor of Bioshock and even Borderlands sprinkled in.  If you even had an inkling to play it, do so.

Really liking The Outer Worlds so far, but oh man, do they ever need to increase the super tiny font size. My TV is 55 inch and this text shouldn't be this hard to read.

Seriously. That and some slowdowns are my only complaint.

I really enjoy the new games that offer a choice for font size because yeah we're in an age of huge TVs and nobody should have to squint to read.

It really boggles my mind that the Dying Light Season Pass is finally on sale for the first time ever but its the same price as buying the Dying Lighting Following Enhanced edition. Why isn't it cheaper than the complete edition?
