A bit early to confirm a date if you ask me.

 

Especially this year.

Fixed the Twitter embed for you. Also, you aren't kidding, a lot can happen in 2 weeks but it's nice to have a date on it.

Kind of weird that the sticks are not off-set if it's an Xbox controller.  This basically looks like a re-purposed Sony controller somehow.  Are they using this same layout for Sony's cloud gaming?

If those controllers are compatible with an Xbox I'll buy one in a heartbeat. 8bitdo makes great retro controllers and that is basically a SNES controller for an Xbox.

Funniest part was the guy landing on the burners and calling it the PS5 overheating.  But I can't believe we are still doing console wars in 2020.

I’m so good at video games that I unlocked an achievement for a game that I haven’t played in over a year last night, while I wasn’t even on.

On 6/17 I unlocked an achievement in Halo 5 where I "Won a match on all three original Warzone maps."  I haven't played this game since the week it released, and I don't remember actually winning matches on those maps.  Maybe I did and maybe they added new achievements or something.

There is an online comic that has done Console Wars for as long as I can remember, but I don't know if it's still around.

TimeSpinners was really good, even did the new game plus on that one

I Think one run is enough for me, but I'm trying to get a damn Familiar I'm missing and it's taking forever.

 

Bummed I missed that it was leaving since it was on the PC list, may have to pick it up cheap in a sale.

It's still on XBox Game Pass. It's never "officially" been an XBox Game Pass game because it's one of those few games that's cross buy between PC and XBox  and for some reason because of that, shows up on PC, but the XBox version you have to search out to add to your Game Pass collection. It's available until the 15th of this month if I remember right so you still got time.

Man, with the internet, drama is intensified like 20 fold. It's impossible not to have all these dumb arguments.

Hover over bag push X then X again, you will grab all (On Xbox that is). The largest "Market" is inside the Whitesprings building, A year ago it would be packed with people now its a ghost town, Just look in personnal vendors for what you need if you are nearby.

 

 

I'm not surprised, they were added with the Wastelanders update, their quests will send you to some high level areas. That was probably a Sheepsquatch, they have a lot of health/armor, but do relatively low damage, at least to my characters. You're right, finish her quest will give you access to that area. You can return with Pleasant Valley Claim Ticket's to get random items and hopefully a rare cosmetic item and more info

Thanks. I haven't come across Whitesprings yet and I know it's not a typical Fallout game so I'm adjusting. Still a bummer though knowing it won't be full of NPCS. I have like 2200 caps and really nothing I want to spend them on yet.

I ran away from the Sheepssquatch. I tried firing on him and was barely making a dent. I was able to kill a supermutant and a ghoulish thing both level 68 though. Oh that thing that flys in the sky scares me and unleashes on me so I run from it.

Once you get far enough in the original main quest you can head into the wastelanders main quest that involves 2 towns with NPCs. It's not like other fallout games though as those other NPCs don't really offer misc side quests like you would expect. Just a couple of main quests for each side and some repeatable daily missions.

Still the game offers a ton of content for new players so it should be exciting to see it hit GamePass now that it doesn't suck nearly as bad as it did at launch.

I bought it for $5 and I agree there is a lot of content. I am not a big online gamer so interacting with other real life people is not the draw for me. I just meant I was looking for NPC vendors and doctors etc like previous Fallout games. I have only come across one doctor ghoul just sleeping on the ground and she didn't offer to heal me or anything. I am liking the game in spite of my problems with it though. Going to play after lunch.

Funny. That’s what the achievement was.

I decided to purchase Greedfall today with some credit I had on my account.

It seems like something I would enjoy, been loving Remnant from the Ashes and I wanted to ensure it will be coming to gamepass in the next few months which usually happens after I buy something on Xbox lately.

Sorry I already bought Control months ago but I bought it at Target during a promotion.

My physical copy purchases don't tend to show up on gamepass only digital lol.

Bring Batman to Xbox!!! Spider-Man vs Batman is the ultimate Console War. Also, his tweet makes it sound like Microsoft bought EA, Activision and Take-Two.

Microsoft couldn’t buy EA, Activision, and Take-Two without slidecage’s approval. Come on.

Well, Microsoft taking WB would be the ultimate power move, but I feel like Activision probably has the most to gain and would love to throw money at those properties and run them into the ground.

If either of those three companies get WB Games, run those properties to the ground and micro transactions and other things to add on top of your $70 game.

 

If Microsoft gets them...Game Pass. Did I mention Game Pass? Oh yes and Game Pass.

 

C'mon Microsoft!

Ok, just repeat the quote I time stamped.  And if you want to obliterate those rose colored glasses, may I suggest Carnage in C-Minor?  Cleanse your palate afterward with a little Dark Awakening.

Unlike previous games, in 76 you are on your own for healing and removing rads, nobody will do it for you for caps. Eventually you will find things you will want to spend caps on. Some weapon and armor mods can only be learned from plans, including all of the power armor mods. There are a lot of plans for CAMP items as well that you may eventually be interested in. I'm still looking for a handful of very rare plans myself that vendors don't carry, so I'll have to spend a small fortune at a player's camp to get them, if I ever see them for sale.

I just want to see some actual gameplay on the 23rd, and I'll be happy. We all know how deceptive these cinematic trailers can be. I am also hoping that the Ubisoft event, and to a lesser extent the Devolver Digital event will shine some light on new games that we can expect for the PS5 and the Xbox Series X.

I'm also slightly interested in that new Bluetooth controller. But, not really for streaming Xbox games, more for just Android gaming in general.

We're getting Shadow Warrior 3 so I'm cautiously optimistic they can fix where they broke 2 with the loot.
