i still have Xbox 360's connected to a few of my tvs. I have a bunch of games that are still not backwards compatible and I doubt many of these games ever will be. Granted I rarely play games on my 360. I am ready to go just in case ;)

Is Jedi Academy worth $5? Never played it or much of the series but my understanding is that this one is it's own story. I'd like to play them all on PC but you know...backlog...

Does anyone know if the new Resident Evil Village demo spoils the ending of VII? I believe I'm a little over halfway through VII, but I just started downloading the demo to check it out. I won't have much time to beat it this weekend/week as my wife wants to watch me play through the rest of it.

Neither RE8 demo spoils the story of Resident Evil VII. The Village demo is more RE4 action based gameplay and has more cutscenes, the Castle Demo is creepier and gives original RE mansion vibes.

 

 

However, there is one obvious spoiler from the trailers that can't be avoided:

Now they’re saying it’s going to be 70 FPS boost games next week. Maybe Monday?

I haven’t played it in a few years but I enjoyed all the Jedi Lucasarts games. Outcast and Academy were great. If you are a Star Wars fan then I’d definitely say it’s worth it.

Imagine if EA would let everyone play the entire first Mass Effect of the remaster via EA Play instead of the usual 10 hour trial. They've locked some trials for games with shorter campaigns to only a few levels so it's not entirely out of the question. Of course those games had multiplayer to pad out the rest of the 10 hours.

Unpopular opinion probably but not overly impressed with the RE8 demo.

All these FPS boosts are only in 1080p correct? There are no 4k/120 games correct? So we basically have to choose between 4k/60 or 1080p/120?

Just watched the new Mortal Kombat movie and the greatest compliment I can give it is similar to the video games, it had characters I didn't give a shit about that I just wanted to see get brutally maimed.

Japanese shmups rarely experience price drops on Xbox, but the shmup Natsuki Chronicles appears to have had a permanent price drop from $42.49 to $22.99.  It doesn't look like it's a sale since there's no apparent end date, and its price has never been reduced before.

I actually enjoyed the movie.  I liked Scorpion and Jax, the other characters were tough to root for though, how did they make Sonya so unlikable? Kano was a lot of fun and Sub Zero was ruthless.

That actually looks promising. I see it’s $19.99 (not a sale) on PSN. Odd that XBL is $3 more.

The 50 pts quiz for exclusive 360 games - the answer is Enchanted Arms (I think it also was on the PS3)

 

The rest were obvious.

It was indeed on PS3.  Funny enough it was one of the few titles to never get trophies so the 360 had the better version.

Still not as bad as how they stopped Pennywise in the IT remake.

I don’t enjoy the war mode thing with the cards, it’s always felt like Pay to Win to me. If you have gold cards with big vehicles it’s much easier to win.

I never got around to trying DayZ. But the achievements don't look too rough, I might try it out before it leaves.

If it was something you never dug, I get that.

I haven't played H5 MP in ... a few years and managed to go 22/5. Maybe I should play more ...

I gave the Show a try and now I'm reminded that I just simply can't get into sim sports games. I tried them all and really just don't find them interesting to play. Oh well.

There is a retro mode you might like.
