Yeah, Control does look and play fantastic on the Series X version. Having a hard time deciding on frame rate or graphics. Those shiny ray tracing floors look pretty sweet.

Shadows of the Damned has just shown as leaving gamepass soon. Wish they would all show up on the same day.

Started Ninja Gaiden 2 last night, hope I finish before it leaves.

Why doesn't Series X remember your wi-fi password? Xbox One didn't either. My PS3 and PS4 and Switch and Wii U all remember different passwords. Has MS given a reason for this? I tend to take my consoles with me when I won't be home for a certain amount of time and Series X is the only one I need to type in the password every time.

I never have to put in my Wi-Fi password on my Series X (or any of my Xbox Ones for that matter). After the original setup, never again. Not sure why it’s happening to you.

Then again, I don’t travel with mine.

Is Microsoft going to continue adding more games to the BC list? I thought they took a break to focus on the Series S/X but here we are and I don’t believe they’ve added anything since launch.

The ability to remember multiple wifi networks is patented technology. It makes sense to license it for mobile devices, but not consoles that will be stationary for the overwhelming majority of its users. Nintendo and Sony's customers tend to be more international, so those manufacturers spring for it, but Xbox is only popular in the Americas and the UK.

It's the same reason why on Xbox One, you had to download the blu-ray app, or why Sony's consoles after PS3 doesn't support CDs.

There's a weird feeling of coming dread knowing that I'm going to put 100+ hours into that Mass Effect remaster when it hits EA Play and also the dread of knowing I gotta choose between Liara and Ashley when I like neither of them. And for nerd sake I hope the achievement score total is over 3,000.


Ashley is a racist, so that makes the decision a bit easier

Digital pre-order for ME Legendary is also discounted by 10% for Game Pass subscribers. Combined with a punch card (not confirmed but most EA titles get them) that would make digital a lot cheaper at launch.

Ashley Williams is my favorite poetry-loving space racist. Seriously, great character and great voice performance as well. The best characters are the flawed ones.

I'll rescue her over Kaidan every time.

Looking at a few more interviews on ME today. One of the clickbait non-gaming publications asked about some of the "questionable" stuff in the old games, like the plausibility of species that is entirely attractive women (????), or EDI's fairly coomer design (fair point). Bioware said the goal is to stick the original vision and not change character designs, though some things would probably be designed different if they were created now.

They did mention a few actual changes though, like the goofy spread legs cutscene for Femshep when she could be wearing a skirt will have a new camera angle, and the famous Miranda ass cutscene from 2 will as well.

Spoiler


On a broader spectrum it sounds like they are redoing a decent amount of Femshep's animation in some degree so she isn't just using the default male ones. Not major changes, but tweaks so she looks more natural.

Speaking about Mass Effect Trilogy Ending:

Spoiler


I really hope they can reboot and change this franchise around with ME4.

They shit on the indoctrination theory 8 years ago, and in the current wave of interview one it the key writers of the game confirmed it was never intended, just a few coincidences.

I stand by the theory as a head canon ending, but no way will it be the canon thing they chose to build ME4 off of.

The GoldenEye remaster has been released to the public. You can run it (with a good PC) on the Xenia emulator, or on a modded 360.

I'm not going to link due to the rules, but if you Google "goldeneye xbla download" you should be able to find the release on archive.org

I'll never pick Kaidan because his voice brings me flashbacks to how much I hated Carth in KOTOR.

 

Also Ashley proves herself loyal once she

It seems Microsoft has done away with the "Open the Game Pass app on mobile" quest permanently, but they've also lowered the number of daily quests required to finish the monthly quests.

I agree she is a well-rounded character, and I appreciated that at the time. Made me all the more disappointed in her racism. Just like real people can! Great character indeed. My Shep just had to draw the line at her racism.

Yeah I meant I hope people are actually using them. There is discussion about Ashley with no spoiler tags at all. People that have never played a ME game already know about her now and so that's a spoiler with no tags.

It's been 13 years since that game came out... The whole Mandolorian cameo was spoiled to the world in like three days. And I legit don't know when someone's personality is a spoiler unless we all expecting her to have multiple personalities. Also 13 years is a reminder that we hella old.

Maybe if something gets rereleased, don't just shout out spoilers about it. Despite popularity, that doesn't mean everyone had a chance to own it or play it.

Heck, there's plenty of people who weren't even alive yet.

How many 13 year olds post here? Sorry, but if that much time has passed, you shouldn't need to worry about spoiling something. People have had enough time to play it. We aren't talking 6 months to a year.

I Think after a year, minor spoilers that legit add nothing to story as a whole are fine. Who your Shepard fucks (whether it be space racist or alien with the texture of a scooter wheel and personality to boot) has nothing in the long run of that game, especially when you get better romantic choices in future games including one who will bone you to death if you play your cards right.

 

While we’re at it, who shot JR?

He was never shot, but he was lit on fire...

While I'd consider that a minor plot detail in the grand scheme of the original 3 games, I can see someone being bummed they didn't get to go in blind.

 

On the other hand, it feels a lot like FF7 character death territory IMHO in terms of gaming culture vs major plot points. Either way I'll be more thoughtful about it.

I haven’t played the ME trilogy yet and I’m looking forward to it. I read the character “spoilers” in the previous posts, but if you’ve played any BioWare style game you know that most characters are going to be screwed literally and figuratively depending on your choices. Plus by the time may rolls around, I’ll have totally forgotten these posts.

I Didn't even see that. Was too focused on space waifu talk apparently. You know, like a man who remembers when Mass Effect 1 was released in his early 20's 13 years ago should be doing.
