Man, Homefront The Revolution is such a jank ass game. Doing jobs and such the game sometimes keeps track while other times it just doesn't for no reason. Level design is basically the Washington DC areas of Fallout 3 and half assed writing and shooting that never feels right. Even then it's not truly awful, but doesn't serve much in the grand scheme of things besides being one of those games that let's me appreciate more polished and well done games. It exists solely to remind you game development is hard and games that try are great.

Microsoft has one of the best, most empowered customer service teams I’ve ever seen. It’s night and day difference compared to calling the cable company or other places.

Bought Rainbow Six Siege a month after it released. It went on sale for the first time the next day. Two phone calls later, didn't get the difference refunded.

I’ve always just returned and rebought it, but maybe yours was before they did digital returns? I also just on Black Friday got $5 back on an item that went $5 cheaper on Cyber Monday, it was a controller though, not a game.

Maybe you guys don’t sweet talk them enough. Last time I talked to CenturyLink, we spent 20 minutes talking about the Tennessee Titans (I asked where she lived and she said TN) while she gave me $100 refund on my modem for customer satisfaction. Are you guys calling in mad or something?

The Volt colored controller is out. Serious question: Is the back and battery cover on most of the new controllers white to save money?

Probably. The black and white ones are cheaper but have generic sticks and face buttons unlike the other colors. The Halo controller that will surely be out later this year will cost even more money to theme the back too.

What's the latest info with Fallout 76 oh Fallout Master? I read there was an update coming but not sure if they are adding missions or if it's just new cosmetics for camps and stuff like that.


Pretty big F76 update today - you can alternate camps now, so instead of having to stick with one or rebuild, you can have a few variant camp slots to load in. They also added display cases for armor/ mannequins. And by far the biggest change, you can now respec after level 25 using the new punch card system.

Really hoping they announce an expansion at E3 and looking forward to Legendary Power Armor that’s supposed to be coming later this year.

It popped up asking me to make room for the update when I turned my Series X on earlier so I had to delete some games. It was a big update. Like 52GB or something stupid and they only added alternate camps, display cases and I don't even know what that last one is. No new story or mission stuff at all? That took 52 GB? Can I uninstall all that stuff? I won't use any of it.

Mostly quality of life upgrades, but there area lot of updates to the dailies as well. Not my favorite part of the game but some enjoy them. The Respec option is huge for anyone that’s been playing the game for a long time. You can basically change your specialization on the fly. It was a huge time and resource suck to redo a high level character before today. The overall size of the game has also been reduced, so even though it was a big download, it’s smaller on your hard drive now.

Speaking of gift cards, if anyone is still holding the $5 from that Microsoft email or the $10 from the Xbox Private Message they must be redeemed by April 29th and 30th. Put them in your account and then you will have 90 more days to spend it.

 

Still waiting for Katamari Reroll to have a sale.

Finally! Got my Series X through Target today. Bout damn time... been trying somewhat irregularly since release. For those who are still looking, Target might be a bit easier since it requires in store pickup so harder for scalpers to lay back and get paid for doing nothing.

Finally started Control last night after staring at it on the dashboard forever. It's really, really good. I think it's the first optimized title (other than maybe Gears 5) to really feel "next gen" like it's utilizing the hardware, but I'm disappointed that there was so much fanfare about dedicated RT hardware but it's still a bottleneck for performance. 

 

60fps makes a huge difference in combat when aiming with twin sticks, but the lighting looks incredible when it's turned on. I just wish more games could do both RT and 60fps, or have more options (change in resolution, uncapped frames, etc).

xcloud on pc is so dang nice

Having a slow work day so I fired up The Show on the XB1S I have at my desk. Oof. If anyone needs proof of performance differences between last gen and next please look no further.

I played through Control on my PS4 Pro and the performance was absolutely trash as much as I loved the game. This is a game that hugely benefits from having next gen hardware. I really wish that MS had included the Ultimate version on Gamepass like Sony did so that I could at least have played this game on my Xbox One X. Feels bad man.

So what time exactly does Destroy All Humans become available to play? Midnight tonight?

It was probably vanilla Control or nothing at all if Sony already had a deal in place for Ultimate on PS+.

The AR pin I ordered from Squeenix came in the mail today.

 

EDIT - Here are the steps on the back of package:

  • Download app
  • Scan your pin
  • Augment reality

Fortunately the deluxe super edition has been on sale for $20 a lot lately. Well worth it if you have a Series X.

It's just as likely that Remedy or 505 Games were pissed that Phil accidentally let the cat out of the bag too early about the game coming to Game Pass, causing the game's sales to crater.
