I thought the 360 delistings were walked back?

 

Skipping Hogwarts as I don't engage with the IP anymore. I don't expect to see the last-gen versions ever.

 

I got some time in with the new board for my fighting controller, can confirm works great plug and play on Series X and PS5 games. $255, companion app is easy to work with for settings/LEDs. Got into a really good groove

The 360 marketplace shutdown was "walked back". The delistings were not.

I love the part where he says "I would have played it for free, but it's their loss." This is the sentiment of the typical Game Pass worshipper.

I like playing game for free on Game Pass. I guess I should feel bad about myself.

Not really into Harry Potter IP. I have the Lego Harry Potter games and that is it. Bummer it's not on Game Pass , but we can't get every game at launch.

 

I was more excited about the new Raiden game that was released this past week.  Paid full price for that game and I have bought this game several times in other iterations and platforms.  I like the new soundtrack and we never got the Raiden IV Overkill on XBox .

I wanted to thank those that recommended Severance on Apple TV (got the trial from game pass perks).  I just finished the season finale, WOW I really like this show.  I normally avoid shows with just 1 season, but I couldn't resist and I need season 2 now.

 

To keep this somewhat on topic, does Hi Fi rush only work with an xbox controller on PC game pass?   I can't get my dual shock 4 to work with the game.

For anyone that may know. Is it worth getting any left for dead 2 dlc, besides the one that comes with the left for dead 1 campaign? Also, do you guys think it's worth getting the orange box if I already have portal? Thanks in advance!

Its been a hot minute since I played L4D2, but I did play a ton of it back when. 

 

If you are really planning on playing a lot of it, then basically you would want all the DLC. Its tells a story over the various DLC and the maps add a lot of variety. 

 

But I would really consider just getting it on PC at this point. I'm sure its way cheaper. Or play Back 4 Blood on game pass. Its like the same idea, but maybe lacking the charm of L4D.

Personally I think the Passing DLC as worth puchasing since it added a couple more things..as for the Sacrifice...it was a bit dumb that both Games essentially got the same DLC however it didn't jinder me to get and play both...

And for the Orange Box, it might be hard t find any matchs in TF2 these days at least on Xbox. So since you already have Portal it comes down to how interested are you in the Half Life Games? Many people might slaughter me for this but personally I only though of them as "okay" since I had way more fun with TF2 and Portal anyway...

I preordered Hogwarts Legacy last week for Xbox. Looking forward to playing as Ravenclaw at launch.

As long as we can all agree to laugh at Hufflepuff

It’s been a while since it was on Gamepass and I only played a bit but I was wondering if AI: The Somnium Files is worth $7.99 now that it’s on sale? Is it very similar to how Danganroopa as far as gameplay and as a visual novel?

Have you already played Half-Life 2? If you have, then probably not. If you have not, the full game and the 2 additional episodes are a good length and have great gameplay. Episode 2 has an exciting ending battle.

As for Team Fortress, you likely will not find games, or they will be hacked lobbies that may or may not be fun. There is an issue with Team Fortress where if you enter a hacked lobby it saves the mods to your hard drive until you shut down the game, so if you host a match you will carry forward those mods from a prior match.

They're fun games if you have not played them, and are great value. But if you have already played them, you likely will not go back to them.

I Liked AI waaaaaaaay more than Danganronpa. There's no gift giving and hanging out so much as there's a linear story with multiple path's and ending's that you have to go through all of to get the true ending. Gameplay wise it isn't too different as there's still allot of point and click and talk to people and find evidence to find a murderer (with some QTE's and some free movement mystery solving), but the overall presentation in AI is much better and I way preferred the writing as well over Danganronpa.

Beat Death's Door and got all but one achievement (the beat the game using only the umbrella because Fuck that noise). Very satisfying game, bosses were tough, but no where near impossible, especially if you got enough upgrades, but mostly just the simple joys of watch that pattern and exploit that pattern style of gameplay. Very good Game Pass get and glad I got to take my time with it (game is under 20 hours).

I've heard there is still some kind of audience for TEam Fortress 2 on console because it's essentially the pristine launch version, it never had any updates.

For Left 4 Dead 2, the L4D1 campaign is actually split across two separate DLC packs. The Passing includes just the first level from 1, and the rest of 1 is included with Cold Stream. The 360 version is totally fine to play, the only negative is that it never received an FPS boost so it's only at 30.

If you have any toaster PC though, that is the one to get. The game gets as low as $1-2 on sale, includes all the DLC we had for free, one more major community made update we never got, and has extensive Steam Workshop support. The easy to install mods can add full new campaigns, and pretty fun total overhauls like a Halo Reach one, or dinosaurs. They also had an official crossover with Resident Evil, adding skins of the humans and Special Infected/BOWs.

So Xenia (Xbox 360 emulator) is out for Xbox consoles now.  Now we truly get to see how lenient Microsoft is with emulators.

So how long before Deadspace Remake becomes playable with gamepass via EA play?

 

Is it worth playing through Deadspace original on Xbox Series X via back compat  now or skip it and wait for the remake? I've only played about 1-2 hours of the original.

I've heard that AI Somnium Files is one of the best visual novels. 80% off is about as good as it's going to get. Thanks for bringing it up, thinking about picking it up now.

I wouldn’t expect the remake on EA Play / GP for at least six months.

Oh boy. I hope it doesn't convince them to kill all the other emulators for Xbox. Playing Bloody Roar: Primal Fury is one of my guiltiest pleasures on my Series S.

Dead Space 1 is still a VERY solid game. I would still recommend you play it in the same way Resident Evil 4 is still a classic all these years.

I hope you managed to claim the Dead Space Upgrade Bundle that was a GPU perk for January. If not, that’s ok but it’ll make the game easier.

I’m expecting Dead Space remake to hit Game Pass in a year or possibly Halloween this year. Depending on how well the game sells and the type of game, some titles can come as early as 6 months after release (Star Wars Squadrons), 8 months (Mass Effect Legendary Edition), or a year (Jedi Fallen Order). For a heavy hitter like Dead Space, I’m expecting a year because I suspect they want to capitalize on holiday sales.

I think Dead Space 1 is a top 5 game of Xbox 360, but I'd almost say not to play it if you're just going to play the new version at some point. It's close enough to the original that I would just enjoy the new quality of life it offers. It's interesting that Resident Evil 4 remake looks the same way to me. The RE 2 and 3 remake projects were so different from their originals, that I'd say yeah play the old games. Dead Space Remake and RE4make remind me of the first time they did RE1 on Gamecube.

I just finished the Operation Catalyst campaign for CrossfireX in about 2 hours and 48 minutes (based on Xbox gaming tracking)
 
Like I said before, it's very mediocre. I was curious how much the game changes after the first hour and it doesn't change at all. Storytelling is wack and actually reminiscent of Remedy's past titles (of course) with lots of strange visions/flashbacks. Gunplay is a mixed bag; gun handling and shooting feels nice and 'juicy' with the 'Combat Breaker' (bullet time) ability but shooting at enemies does not feel good at all (actually reminds me of the Uncharted games where the shooting sucks ass).
 
Something I like about the shooting is that the bullet time ability is a bit different than your average slo-mo shootout. It does this thing where the action "speeds up" and "slows down" based on whether or not you are currently shooting; when you aren't shooting, the world moves in slow motion but when you are, it's like the world speeds up to show the immediate effect of your shooting so there's this amplified and exaggerated effect of enemies reacting strongly to your shots. I think there is also a bit of "aim assist" while you're in this mode because I've noticed that my gun snaps directly to the nearest enemy in my view once I kill the enemy I was shooting. So there's this kind of "staccato" rhythm to the kills while in bullet time that feels nice. Maybe a closer analogy is watching a film sequence with every other frame removed so that it feels faster and more frenetic (see the opening of Mad Max Fury Road do this). Thankfully, the bullet time ability recharges fairly quickly so you can try to spend most of your time in this mode. If you do get really hurt though, your health actually regenerates quite fast. I think I've only died like once in this game and that was because I tried to go Rambo into a large group of enemies; it's still very possible to pull off and survive and I think that might be the best way to play it knowing that you can heal fairly quickly and use bullet time frequently.
 
Other than this bullet time ability, the game is just bland. Run of the mill run and gun military shooter with limited weapons and not much varied gameplay (there are sequences where you snipe people from a distance like an escort mission to spice things). If you are curious how Remedy does an FPS with limited resources, then check it out. Just set your expectations very low.

Speaking of Dead Space... this game is intense.  I can't play it for too long or my nerves get to me.  Just finished Chapter 6.  Switching between that and HiFi Rush to balance out

It took Jedi Fallen Order a year to come to EA Play. So I’d expect Dead Space to take at least six months.

I used to be like this too and what helped but washed away from the experience was turn the brightness up and play when the sun is out.
