Just here to say this is what Clemson could have been …if Dabo hadn’t been such an idiot sticking with DJ all season! Fuck DJ!

I'm pissed at USC right now.  You can tell they don't even do tackling drills in practice.  It's all offense all practice long.

Does anyone have an issue with bandwidth size when using Apple TV+ on the Xbox? I noticed I used 150 Gb of data in the first 3 days this month and I had not downloaded any games yet. Checked my usage and noticed 10-12 Gb an hour when I was watching Ted Lasso or For All Mankind. They look great but I won't have many games to download at that rate. Is my only option to set it to SD? I would like 1080p at the very least.

Can't speak to Apple specifically but streaming 4K can really burn through gigs. It's usually something like 10-15 gigs per hour at 4K.

Thanks for link, the IOS part confused me. So you can calibrate with this?

I am late to the party but +1 on The Gunk. I liked the play mechanic, I got interested in the story, the soundtrack is by an artist I like and I could actually play it to completion while still having a job and a life. My only real complaint was there could have been more enemy variety. To me, this was a perfect Game Pass game.

Spent basically all weekend playing Persona 5 vanilla again. On one hand, God this game really make it hard to get to any other games in my backlog. On the other, after completing so many 4-15 hour games, it feels incredibly refreshing and rewarding to have a game you can dive into and think about even after turning it off with what skills you might need or what activities to do next and timing what to do where. I Actually am looking more and more forward to my Royal run next year just for the "do it right run" and to get achievements.

 

The perfect yin and yang to playing Race with Ryan so I get my daily achievement and dose of unrivaled gaming rage at that garbage game.

This $70 price point thing is kind of silly to me. Everyone acts like it matters but the real cost of a video game has been all over the place. Between DLC, Micro Transactions, Macro Transactions, GOTY editions, remastered editions, and everything in between, you can spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on your favorite game. The $60 complete game was lost years ago, the Original Xbox and some 360 games had that but on Xbox One it already was disappearing.

Of course, with GamePass, how many people are actually buying first party games?

I'll continue to support Forza Horizon with a full price purchase.  After the lootbox microtransactions in Gears 4, I didn't buy Gears 5 but put a hell of a lot of time into it through Game Pass.  Even though it also went GwG, if it ever hits $5, I'll make the purchase.  Will see what the new Motorsport looks like before deciding.

I’ve seen some comments that maybe the $70 is the backdrop to a Gamepass price increase soon, and that could be logical. To make it seem like the value is higher since games are now $70 without Gamepass.

Seems like it was inevitable for them to increase the price.  Microsoft is the opposite of Nintendo in that they drop the price of their games to dirt cheap eventually so even if you don't have game pass, I wouldn't sweat the increase.

The issue is that the higher default price does not mean the "early access" barren release will go away, or the nickel and dime microtransaction hell some games have.

Yes, we're all on GamePass here, but it still sucks. I guess it'll be fun to see the backlash for Bethesda if we see another buggy shitfest with Starfield.

If Halo Infinite was released under this price there would have been no chance of redemption. It's still a joke a year later as is.

If you’re referring to Halo Infinite multiplayer, it was F2P so it still wouldn’t be $70. The campaign wasn’t a joke (to me at least).

This is how I feel about Dolmen after playing it over the weekend. Yes it's a janky soulslike with guns but for some reason I can not seem to put it down

The $60 Halo campaign that launched without 20 year old features, took a year to add two of them, and a year to cancel split-screen after promising it for about 6 years? No theater, no Firefight in this full priced release. The core campaign is solid, that doesn't make the rest of the package not a joke.

Versus MP is a whole other can of worms and I would say that is another tier of joke.

You didn't hear it from me, but I have it on good authority that every Bethsoft game uses this as an internal name.  It becomes a nightmare when they are working on more than one game at a time.

I'll be totally honest...I didn't know the MSRP of first party Microsoft games since the Series console came out until today. Getting Game Pass it has been a total non point and it still kinda sorta is.

The one on Disney+... Might want to rewatch the Movie before that.

 

Wait... what Willow series?

They ruined it; worse than CW content and quite frankly I'm appalled they thought it was acceptable. After quickly realizing what lie they had sold in the teaser trailers for the show, I checked reviews and sure enough I wasn't alone. I waited 34 years for a sequel and this was the trash they could come up with? Only the original cast seemed in the right place with all these tween twats running around; what a goddamn joke.

 

Couple that with D+ raising their rates $3 right on the day I was set to renew: nope, canceled. I'll catch a free trial when Mandalorian is back but they lost me for shitting on one of my top 80's movies.

The irony is Sony made Game Pass an even more valuable proposition by raising the price of games. Now they have an even bigger issue with GoW being released: what do they even have coming next?

Spider-Man 2 is supposed to come next year though it hasn’t been dated but I think overall MS will have more first party releases for once.

With most releases being digital nowadays it's especially silly. No box, no disc, no printing, no shipping, no storage, nothing I can hold in my hand, no overhead of any kind. Games should be going down in price for digital especially when my digital purchase can be revoked. COD was an outright joke with what was on the supposed disc.

Nothing exciting, but definitely getting Astalon: Tears of the Earth before the sale ends. Apparently a wonderful 8 bit retro modern Metroidvania.
