I keep getting this with Microsoft rewards:

It’s not you, it’s us.

Something unexpected went wrong on our end. We’ll resume service as soon as possible – check back soon to keep enjoying Microsoft Rewards.

Looks like it is back up for me. Thought I was going to lose my streak.

Is anyone else getting error messages when trying to play games?

Yeah I was able to get into MS Rewards on the web page for a minute to keep my streak, trying to play some Multiplayer Forza Horizon 4 now and no servers found, seems to be some issues tonight

Finished Spiritfarer tonight. It was a really excellent game. My biggest gripe is that it should have been a little bit of a tighter experience. The characters and their stories are really well done but if not for that part I would have stopped playing after 10 hours. The resource management and building just become so tedious and just boring after awhile and the game would have benefitted from a little faster pace.

 

I still recommend it and it is another win for GP.

FH4 Live has been on/off since about noon. The sessions I can get on are only between 5-20 players.

My problem with Spiritfarer was the gameplay. I was interested enough in the story to maybe keep going, but I didn't like actually playing the game.

Yeah I played Spiritfarer directly after putting about 300 hours into Animal Crossing so I was burnt the Fuck out on that resource management stuff. It still made my top twenty but would have been higher if there was less of that.

I really enjoyed the ten hours or so I put into Spiritfarer until something happened to my save and I came back to an empty ship, no resources, none of the homes and buildings and all the characters I had needed to be found again

Yep ... same thing that’s going to happen with the new Mass Effect Trilogy rerelease and even the Demon’s Souls remake ... they look newer and shinier, but the actual character redesigns are subpar. All of these games had a really distinct style and look that just isn’t captured in recent remakes ... which makes them subpar and not worth it in many cases.


I was a little worried about Mass Effect also (I'm super attached to those characters and the way they look), but the latest trailer was reassuring. The characters look exactly the same, just rendered in higher res.

I'm trying to go back and play all the Hitman campaigns through Hitman III and on the first game there's a constant drift in the controls that makes Agent 47 always move to the right if you're not controlling him. I Googled it and I found a few comments about it but I would think this would have been a much bigger issue. Have any of you ran into this and know if there's a workaround I'm missing? I may just skip to Hitman II assuming it's not at issue there. For a game based on stealth it feels like a game breaker.

FYI they added the “log in to the Game Pass app” daily quest back for some reason, but didn’t change the weekly or monthly requirements (shhh). Get those extra 5 point freebies while they last!

And thanks to those who mentioned the Rewards issues last night. Thought it was the new update to the mobile app that just wasn’t registering. I still hate the new layout and buttons, but at least my points were counting.

I could be wrong but I think Final Fantasy 7 Remake is being hinted at launching in Game Pass.

Mass Effect doesn't seem to be in this trap. The only changed model was default Femshep, since they added the finalized version from ME3 to 1 and 2. Everything else looked the same with updated textures and very minor tweaks, like Miranda having her more detailed ME3 hair in ME2.

Finally some more info on the Nier update, and they definitely updated those models. Kaine's face is slightly different looking but I think it's mostly down to a large bump in details. Though seeing a small amount of people who really don't like her outfit.

I wouldn't even strictly call it a change for ME1-2 Femshep, because before ME3 her default look was just one of the character creator presets, which you can still use. They just added the ME3 model as another option.

Anyone have a weird issue with Gears 5 making you download a bunch of shit? The game booted up but I had to download most of the game again. Was this because it went GWG?

Well since it is still on my shelf I guess that is good. Look at For Honor (4.5 years) and Siege (6 years). I am sure it is more economical for them but I have no idea what those players bases look like.

Speaking of Spiritfarer, they announced yesterday new free updates coming this year with more characters. I had a fun time playing it in coop with one of my kids. But I'll only go back if they add achievements.

So that second Ace Attorney Trilogy from the Capcom leak just was rated in Taiwain, but for everything except Xbox.

https://www.gematsu....for-switch-more

Looking at the broader discussion it appears clear why. I missed these leaked sales numbers, but apparently the first collection sole less than 5000 copies in Xbox, worldwide.

I still wish they'd bring out the second PW collecion on Xbox. I'm skeptical of those low numbers but I contriubted to a full price of PW1 Collection at least!!

I don't really see a reason the numbers would be inaccurate. They were from pretty official looking, internal only spreadsheets. I'm not sure offhand when the actual date was from for the files in the leak, I think it was around April, but the collection had the same release date on all platforms so that shouldn't matter.

Need to factor in that AA is already a fairly niche series in the West, had no previous Xbox affiliation other than UMvC3, and that it's a hard sell to new players as an adventure game / visual novel compared to the usual action games Capcom puts out.

They are also very old games at this point, where many people who like the series have already played elsewhere. IMHO they don't have a ton of replay value since the story doesn't change, although I'm sure some people enjoy them for multiple playthroughs.

Lmao. 4800 sold on Xbox? No wonder Japanese developers are extremely reluctant to bring their games over to Xbox. That's literally less than 5% of the copies sold on PS4, which also isn't a great platform for visual novels. It's less copies than what a porno on DVD will sell, or what the smallest newspapers sell.

Yeah 5k is terrible. Hopefully the game will come to gamepass and it will bring a new audience to it. And Capcom would change their mind or MS can make a gamepass deal with them to release the other PW games.

I don’t know why I always think games like Ace Attorney and visual novels where you are doing a lot of reading are better suited for handhelds or mobile.

I'm one of the 5000.  I double dipped using rewards money after having them on DS.  That is brutally low.

For those wondering what the announcement was at the Final Fantasy 7 concert, it was nothing, but I enjoyed the stupid people saying things like Sony or Microsoft were buying Square leading up to it.
