Witcher 3 is a new Game Pass addition according to a Twitch ad.

Greatest game of this gen, imo.

If Reach shadow drops, any guesses on price?  I'm hoping since ODST is $5, it will be the same

One of the Twitter posts mentioned a "ghost drop," this would make perfect sense as not a major release but something folks are clamoring for. 

He had his signals crossed, he didn't know that Age of Empires 2 HD was coming out today, but True Achievements has been catching other things.

It seems a bigger "product" than ODST so might be more. I remember when it was announced there was a lot of stipulations, like the MP was free and the campaign wasn't or something like that. I also think if you have GamePass or Ultimate Gamepass you just get it.

The "Shadow Drop" was Age of Empires 2, he just didn't know it already had a release date.

 

I just hope Reach has the Horde mode in it, my wife and I used to play a ton of that on 360.

You never hear people go "LOOK AT ALBUQUERQUE!" It's always "CHICAGO BAD!" as if they were #1 with a bullet, not #21. I mean imagine fans of the NFL always talking about Tampa Bay as if they were the #1 team in the league, but when you look it up, you see they only have 3 wins all season and are ranked closer to the bottom. Perception vs Reality.

Maybe it is due to the fact that Chicago has the highest total number of murders each year and it was dubbed "murder capital of the U.S" by the many media outlets including the Washington Post based on the number of murders alone, not on the per capita rate.

The preorder discount and punch card for Jedi: Fallen Order make it a very tempting purchase. I’m a little leery of the release date review embargo, but I think I’ll take a chance on it.

Ive watched a few streams of gameplay on Twitch and so far the graphics look pretty mediocre. I’m going to wait it out...

I adored the Titanfall 2 campaign. Might be my favorite single player of this gen. So I’m giving Respawn the benefit of the doubt. Looking forward to midnight!

Canceled my preorder after watching gameplay of the first few hours of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order it looks like it does absolutely nothing new and the dialogue and story is pretty shitty .

Started Outer Worlds last night finally and I don't know what it is, but lying to people is strangely more satisfying than filling them full of bullets. With that being said, I look forward to when I do have to pull out my gun and fill their crotches full of bullets so I can get that achievement. Video games!

Gameplay looks like an Xbox 360 game imo

It's all been done to death already. I wish they would make a hardcore R rated Star Wars game with gratuitous violence and gore and cursing. Shake the franchise up. Do something unexpected. Leave the kiddos behind.

Or just give me a completely remade KOTOR 1 and 2 (Director's Cut with all the missing content) so I can relive the days when Star Wars games were engrossing experiences.

What time is the stream? I searched but am seeing conflicting info.

I think they are doing an Inside Xbox thing an hour before at 2pm EST, so maybe that's where the confusion is

Guys! Please don't give examples of controversy and censorship in the past! Stop using facts! Some people on here have made the snowflake narrative the foundation of their ideological house of cards. If these people can't CONSTANTLY COMPLAIN on every social media site that "snowflakes" are destroying everything, they might discover that it is actually themselves who are the whiny bunch we are sick and tired of hearing from.

Counterpoint - If you throw enough snowflakes on the ground for long enough, they make a beautiful blanket.

The Mandalorian would be the perfect foundation for a game , open galaxy, capture or let go different bounties, upgrade systems to your ship, armor, weapons, decisions change the path of the story .

I’d like to know what streams people are looking at to say Fallen Order has crappy 360 graphics. Did the New Zealand trick and started playing. Graphics look great to me. Nothing mind blowing but certainly not bad.

Enjoying the game so far!

Super f-in pumped that Reach might be out tonight. Have been waiting impatiently for quite a while - it’s the game that I got my fiancé hooked on before we were even dating and we want to play the campaign together again. Also, for those asking about the pricing, I do remember seeing that it’s all included with GP/GPU, and if you don’t have that, MP is included but campaign is $10. Unfortunately I don’t remember where Firefight fell in that pricing structure but it might be part of the campaign bundle. Hoping we get all the details later.

On a work trip so can't play. You're killing me.

Enjoy though. Can't wait to play

I don't know if you're serious, but I plan to start shooting people in the crotch now without looking this achievement up.  I figure the journey will be its own reward...

Combat and platforming both feel great in Fallen Order too. Kind of a mix of Dark Souls and Force Unleashed as far as combat. Set pieces have been fun. Happy with it so far.

There's definitely room for a pacifist playthrough, which is more challenging but also more fun sometimes.

... or because it has a large minority population, is Obama's hometown and the mayor is a former member of the Obama administration.

Wow a mix between a 10 year old game and a 9 year old game , ya don’t say ? Almost like a mix of two different 360 games

Murder capital of the US or not.  Chicago is probably my least favorite city in the country.  They do have some good food spots tho.

No.. it’s part of the reason but that’s not it.

10 shot/killed in any city on some random day... calls by the left to ban all firearms.
30-50 shot in Chicago on the same weekend... crickets.

Chicago has some of the strictest firearms laws in the nation, all in place by the left... so it’s not allowed to be brought up.

That’s the reason Chicago always gets mentioned.
