I Feel they put Octopath up because they saw me trying to go through Dragon Quest and feel they need to drown me in more long JRPG time.

Octopath Traveler on xbox?
Persona is closer to a reality then some think. Especially with Microsoft's friendship with Sega.

Sony is probably going to go really hard on timed exclusives this gen now.

The rumor about Persona's lack of ports is that Atlus is still fairly independent within Sega and didn't want to do it for whatever reasons. Persona 4 Golden was supposedly a test or metric, like Capcom likes to do.

I though Octopath was published by Nintendo on Switch, but it looks like it is Square Enix all the way.

Dad gamer problems: I always assume Octopath Traveller has something to with the kids’ show Octonauts for some reason and I can’t break that association in my mind.

I Played and beat the terrifying lows of Yakuza 3 and 4 after the dizzying highs of Kiwami 2 and 0, the creamy middle of Kiwami 1. I'm totally ready for it.

Outer Worlds 4K/60 patch
Wreckfest 4K/60 patch
Octopath Traveler on Xbox?!?!

It's like a day of personal wishes getting checked off


Also, take this as rumor for now. It's likely a translation error or something, but:

I actually got Octopath Traveler for Stadia using some discount thing they had. I really liked what I played but it’s taken a back seat to, well, games I don’t have to stream.

I’m VERY excited about having it on the X and would have bought it outright if it hadn’t been on GamePass.

If VR support comes to Xbox, I REALLY hope it's by way of existing hardware and not proprietary VR like Playstation. 

 

Octopath Traveler!!! And Day One! Holy shit is GamePass having the best month ever or what?!?

Xbox has so much good news this week they can't even be bothered to make individual announcements, it's just included in a thumbnail.

 

Really though it's probably better PR, since way more people are talking about it. I made it about 20 hours into Octopath and I got kind of bored, the 8 character stories never really connect and are very segregated from one another. It's a beautiful game with a great battle system, though, and worth trying on Game Pass.

I always think people are talking about that Octodad game with the Octopus guy.

They (Atlus) did a survey recently in japanese (in which I participated) if people would like to have the Shin Megami Tensei Series / Persona Series and their other works on Xbox Series S / X as well. I certainly raised my voice to make that happen. :)

I went through something fairly similar with my husky about 4 years ago. It's hard to make the choice that hurts most, but you made the right call for your boy so he wouldn't hurt anymore. My deepest condolences for your loss. Another good boy has crossed the rainbow bridge.

So has anyone else's ms rewards been slow at adding points for purchases? Pre ordered outriders the day that e-mail came out with hints about it being on gamepass by monday still no points for my purchase then they annouced it so I cancelled the pre order. Used that money to buy some stuff on the sale and still haven't received any points for the new purchases.

Sadly, that VR reference was just a localization bug and MS says VR is not a focus “at this time”.

If I played and enjoyed the demo years ago and Chrono Trigger is my favorite game, what am I going to think of it? Does it just get worse after the beginning or something?

I take back my earlier disappointment with Wreckless. It’s really fun now that I’ve got the hang of it. And it plays great in 60fps 😄

Yes, the handling takes some getting used to but it’s a great game IMO. Only complaint used to be long loading times and they fixed that even before the Series X. Now, 60 FPS is icing on the cake.

Same here, I've been waiting for points on a few purchases I made on Friday. Was gonna give it a day or two more.

I hit my limit with playing games just to achievement whore. I just bought Xmas Adventure for Kids and it's horrible. It doesn't have achievements and it doesn't even work on top of constantly asking for permission for my info.  I'm done with caring about my gamerscore, it's got me playing bottom of the barrel games doing tedious grinds and making games feel like work. 

I'll hit a million Gamerscore in a couple of years just playing good games I neglect and will just slowly stop caring about 100%-ing every game I touch. I started off with the Kingdoms of Amalur remaster and love it again already. Only a couple of hours in and it feels great, looks great and sucked me within minutes of playing and wants me to explore this world for 60 hours all over again!!
