The Sea Shanties is where the game shines.


While I hate setting foot on land, when I do it's for the shanties! Drunken Sailor is my favorite!!!

This may be a dumb question, but for the fps boost, can the game be played off an external drive? That's a different boost then the Series X optimized, right?

Comes up with a button to “see the price” (but in Russian). If I click it it takes me to the old US Xbox marketplace

Sane thing is happening for me as well.

 

Also, It's the 4th of May and my auto redeem still hasn't applied to my account.  Anyone else have theirs yet?

Little off the current discussion but been playing through Assassin's Creed Black Flag (finally) and it's on sale for $9 and the season pass is $5. Third time I've been trying to play it (never played an assassin's creed game other than the OG release of 3 which lasted maybe an hour for me) and basically forced myself through the beginning, but once you're on the high seas HOLY CRAP it's fun. The DLC, while not heavy on single player content apparently, was an insta-buy for me for $5 because I want that Captain Morgan outfit!

I have origins and odyssey in my backlog but promised myself I had to get through Black Flag first and wow I'm glad I did! Those two can gather more dust because I'm busy getting my pirate on!! Arrgg!!!

Same, I almost bought the season pass for $10 on sale a few weeks ago, but for $5 it's an easy buy. I played about 1/3 of AC4 on PS3 a long time ago but never finished it, I want to replay on Xbox but at this point I'm waiting for FPS Boost. All those other AC games on the new list, Black Flag has to be on their radar. 

 

Still disappointed we never got any Black Flag DLC for Black Flag.

I’m actually doing both. I’m getting digital for Xbox as that’s what I have the newest hardware for, but I am getting the physical version on PS4 at Best Buy for the steel book, and because I have a problem. I played the original Mass Effect on 360 and then played part 2 on 360 doing a paragon path. When Mass Effect 2 later got announced for PS3 I jumped ship because I was primarily a PS3 gamer at the time. I decided to replay the game and went with a renegade path just to change it up. When Mass Effect 3 came out I bought it on both so I could finish both my runs. I then ended up buying the physical version of the trilogy on PS3 because I wanted a physical copy of Mass Effect 1 on PS3. At that point I had bought every Mass Effect game on console, so when Mass Effect 3 got a Wii U port I said why not. At this point I’m just keeping the ridiculousness alive. I’ll do a paragon run on Xbox, and when I later get a PS5 a year or two down the line I’ll go through it again doing renegade. Every time I read some stupid decision I see somebody post I think about this and tell myself, yep I’m stupid as Fuck sometimes too.

You are not alone in the stupidity, I also own the trilogy in multiple formats.  

 

Mass Effect: xbox, origin

Mass Effect 2: xbox, origin, PC physical collectors edition

Mass Effect 3:  xbox, xbox collectors edition, origin, and wii u

 

I was always tempted to buy the box set but resisted.  Now I am going to buy the legendary edition on steam but I really want that steel book so may need the xbox version as well.

PSA: Alien Isolation needs to be run off SSD or Internal storage with FPS boost. Runs like dog shit on external. Tried rebooting and didn’t help.

Only game so far with FPS boost that gave me issues off external.

Well got my iOS xCloud invite. Gave it a try on my iPad and iPhone. First issue, it recommends using Safari, but I can't open the link in Safari due to a "content blocker". Anyone else get this? I'd add it to allowed urls if I could find out where to do it.

 

So, I opened it in Chrome and started up Injustice 2. It quikcly loaded up my cloud save and knew what DLC I had; nice! It ran ok (I just tried for a few minutes), but I wish the browser could go full-screen so I didn't have the address bar at the top. I was using a Series X controller and it was responsive.

 

I'm impressed by the # of games they've added touch controls for. Haven't tried it yet, but they really are getting behind it.

So I pre-ordered mass effect trilogy the other month like a dumb ass, and now there is a punch card. Can I cancel and re-order it to get the punch card to work? It specifically states the purchase has to be between may 3-28th.

You can. I do it quite frequently.

I'm not installing a 46GB game for 100 points.  May da Schwartz be wit everyone else though.
