Is it the Series X version of Madden? I can’t find that anywhere but would look forward to playing it since I got burned by the demo.

No idea.  I'm not at home anymore, but you can check by logging into your Xbox and going to it from the Games With Gold tab on your dashboard before downloading it.

It's both versions according to the website.

Should be. I'm guessing you played before the December update? I'm looking forward to seeing the difference. My X is now coming tomorrow.

Yeah, I don’t understand it. They’re blaming it on using a newer version of the graphics engine but a save file doesn’t seem like it would rely on that. Who knows? Maybe they didn’t want Sony to get a bad rap for PS5 to not be able to do it while Xbox could.

I haven't played it yet but don't you get both versions with the ultimate edition? I have two tiles for control in my ready to install list and only one shows as ultimate edition with the enhancements icon. It won't run as well as the enhanced edition but the regular version should run better on the series x and allow you to transfer the save, right?

Just seems to me like they made an entirely new SKU and that's the issue, like shadow of mordor game of the year edition versus the standard version with season pass.

I think it's been confirmed that you can't transfer the save between the regular and ultimate edition.

I'm just glad I only played an hour or so to check it out. Hopefully Remedy gets their shit together on their next real game. I double check and they certainly implied Xbox saves would transfer during all the noise from the Ultimate edition being a separate purchase. If they figured out the engine was causing an issue they should have said so as soon as they were sure it wouldn't transfer. It's not the end of the world, even Witcher 3 Complete had this issue, but is pretty lame the feature just quietly disappeared with no announcement.

I don't really care if Crossfire X has issues since that's clearly a cashgrab job.

The weird feeling knowing I'm the weirdo who's fine with Control saves not transferring simply because if I want to I can play the game now and if I enjoy it I can play it again with new fancy tech and new achievement list.

 

Also it dawned on me that I really want to play Assassin's Creed games this year even though I'm like 5 or 6 games behind and I know I'll regret it, but you know, not going anywhere until maybe Summer.

If you bought gamestop stock. It is now time to sell. Its about to plummet. The banks put a stop on gamestop, amc, bedbath and beyond, and black berry. The jig is up.

Yeah, seeing how a lot of the big retail trading platforms have put holds on “highly volatile” stocks reeks of “the wrong people are making money” at this point. Institutional investors (such as the hedge funds currently getting bled dry) are still able to trade those stocks.

The big guys always get to decide who's left holding the bag when something goes wrong. Maybe gamestop will come up with a plan where the retail investors can trade in their worthless shares for trade credit so they can at least get something out of the deal.

Have you played Odyssey? I had it sitting in my backlog forever and finally got around to lightly playing it (not full on obsessed yet) and it’s pretty damn good. Way better than the earlier games, more freedom to muck around and assassinate targets on your own terms. I still have Origins and Valhalla in the backlog but each of those seem to take forever to complete and two have tons of DLC content.

I realize you may be facetious, but Odyssey Gold/Ultimate is solid if you’re looking for something to dive into.

I don't know shit about stocks, but it looks like the consumer level stock facilitators like Robinhood don't like their normal partners getting fucked since it keeps going. Doesn't seem like time to sell yet, just like the billionaires are exerting any pressure they can. It keeps going up overall.

I am curious, as someone who legitimately believes that GameStop is on deaths door and was surprised it didn’t file for bankruptcy in late 2020, could the recent stock shenanigans actually cause the company to implode faster than if WallStreetBets hadn’t become fixated on the stock?

Is there an upside for GameStop, because aside from helping pad the pockets of Reddit day traders and screwing some bigger investors, it still seems like this is inherently bad attention for the company.

Odyssey was great but it was a huge game. There were some superfluous areas. Though they were fun doing everything but it wasn’t necessary. The first dlc is good but the second is is up and down and takes forever. I really enjoyed Odyssey but Origins was better. Odyssey is a game you could play forever though thanks to the weekly quests and being able to shift control of areas.

I think the main thing they could do to benefit would be to sell some of the stocks they own themselves to get some cash. I think most of the other effects of this whole thing would be somewhat disconnected from who the actual stock is for, unless it somehow draws in new investors. I'm still seeing a few boomers say stuff about "Reddit saving GameStop" so maybe a few dumbasses could actually invest.

I don't know that GameStop will know how to take advantage since their most recent big brain plan was to turn several stores into hangout locations like an internet cafe or comic shop.

Lots of background shit happening now, a big class action lawsuit against Robinhood, and claims that there was pressure from a big bank and the White House to shut down app transactions. Investors in other countries are trading heavily now so I'm not sure how effective this damage control can be.

I’ve heard Origins is better from a few people. Haven’t played enough to be sure, but I do like what I’ve played. The one thing I really enjoy in Odyssey that evidently didn’t return in Valhalla was the Bounty Hunter system.

Reminded me a lot of the Nemesis engine from Shadows of Mordor (not quite as good), but what was awesome was that feeling of being able to hunt the bounty hunters and also have way higher level bounty hunters randomly cross your path, knowing you’d have to take them down sometime later if you wanted to progress in that system. Really enjoyed that and it added that sort of random stealth assassination thing in the game without having it be linked to a story moment or making someone impossible to assassinate until you got to the right part of the game (which earlier AC games were all guilty of).

I finally got a PS5 ordered at MSRP from PlayStation Direct.

 

Played some of the Sea of Thieves update today in 120fps and did one of the new shipwreck voyages, sooo smooth. I can actually hit things with the harpoon a lot easier now.

 

I played a bit of Medium. So far I really like it. It feels like how I remember those classic horror games on PS1, but obviously new and looks great. This type of game is perfectly fine in 30fps. I appreciate that they tried some new things with this title, even if it meant sacrificing fps.

 

It's been a great day for games.

At this point I’m convinced Michael Lewis will write a sequel to The Big Short about this GameStop situation in a couple years.

Lol. In all seriousness though, I think this is a pretty scary situation. I've seen so many message board posts today from people who have never invested before but are rushing to get in on GME because of the memes. Somebody's going to be left holding the bag at the end of this when the stock is back down to $5. I'm too cynical to trust that all these online bros are gambling with money they can actually afford to lose.

I think the scary part after today is that the trading apps are able to restrict users from buying a specific stock at any time just for the hell of it.

Really enjoying The Medium so far. The reviews seem to be love it or hate it with 8-9 scores or 6s. From what I’ve played, I’m in the former camp. Creepy and immersive and the dual reality is pretty cool.
