Don't know if anyone saw this, but on the Android Game Pass app, they recently updated it so that a game wouldn't start unless a controller was connected, meaning the "boot them up" game quests had to have a controller paired. Well, with the recent PC Cloud beta, I tried Call of the Sea with no controller synced, and sure enough, the "Continue Anyway" option was available. Now I can grab those points at work like I used to.

So Epic, Apple, or the court system fucked up pretty bad. The majority of those documents that were floating around the last few days were not supposed the be publicly available, but since the cat is out of the bag they're just going to stay out there.

There are some redacted areas, but they were done sloppily. For example, we now know that Microsoft made 2.2 billion in profit during 2019 for gaming software and services. A bit under half of Sony, and just under Nintendo.

There are games that support touch controls, so if you go with one of them you don't need to connect a controller.

You can make and print your own custom covers for Mass Effect

All the bonus materials from the old limited editions have been made available too. I didn't download it yet but 88 tracks should mean the full soundtracks.

My gaming purchases probably kept up with other years only because of my reintroduction to pc gaming as my wife has taken over my xbox.  At this point I am mostly looking to buy a series x for her.  Got to make those Sims run smoother.

Maybe it’s the pre-install of Psychonauts 2?

I've made up for it buying retro stuff. I just needed a Super NT, okay?

I just found controllers to buy, so maybe next round I can get one of those Super NTs as well. I hope the rumours are right that they will have more when they get more Mega SGs.

Page is still up. But can’t find Psychonauts 2 on the app anymore. MS might have killed the preload.

Anybody know precisely when the Golden Week sale ends? One site said "sometime on the 6th," but that's not very specific.

I Typed in Phoenix Wright on the XBox website, which I believe is part of the sale and it says it has 12 hours left so I'd go with that.

Did you manage to preload the game? Pretty sure it was already confirmed to be releasing next week Thursday, May 13th.

 

I was able to preload Destroy All Humans via the app before it dropped on gamepass as I was really excited about that one.

Unfortunately not. The May 13th date is for the first Psychonauts coming to GamePass. There hasn’t been an announcement for the 2nd one but there’s some speculation that it may be shadow dropped. Possibly during E3.

Guess I'll be waiting until I get a Series X and a fancy monitor before I get to experience this in total shock and glory.

Guess it’s about time to dust off my Xbox 360 Mass Effect Trilogy I bought before Hastings went out of business. Should I play them in low res before high res to get the full story?

Also, loving the new legend in Apex legends but she seems majorly OP. I expect a nerf coming soon.

I couldn't remember if I checked the clock capacitor that goes bad and leaks acid all over the place on all of my original Xbox consoles so I cracked them open again.   The first console already had the cap removed.  The Halo Xbox had a cap that was starting to leak - I wiggled it off of the motherboard and cleaned up the residue with some baking soda and water.  The final one was a 1.6 Xbox that uses a higher quality cap and was less prone to premature failure, but it looks like the fuse on the power supply is blown (won't power on).

 

Finally got to test out the Xbox HDMI adapter that I bought earlier this year (https://chimericsyst...i-video-adapter).  Picture looked great, and I didn't notice any artifacts that are reportedly common with the ones sold on Amazon and other sites.  It also outputs Dolby Digital through HDMI unlike the other adapters.  Glad to ditch the bulky component video cables.

 

Now I need to find out if its possible to convert the old IDE hard drives to SSD.

still nothing here

 

and it appears to have changed it to where I wasn't signed up for it as I had to sign up for June's again (I've received all the previous month's)

 

that also happen to yall? We may not be getting this one unless they figure out whoever was signed up and affected by the glitch or whatever

I was still signed up for the June auto redeem, but I got nothing for May.  Oh well, the points are still there at least.

I’m trying to figure out if I should buy Far Cry 6 (its been delayed too due to the pandemic) or if those rumours are true about all the UBI Soft games coming to Gamepass.

I’m going to hold off on Far Cry 6. I haven’t seen enough to get me really interested yet. Not counting the bugs, glitches and delays on content, was disappointed with AC Valhalla as a long time fan. I’m concerned Far Cry will be underwhelming too but I’ll probably get it when it goes on sale later this year.

I’m trying not to get too optimistic. The first one was great and a classic but that was so long ago.

I really meant convert the Xbox IDE interface to SATA.

 

Found what I need from this article: https://www.retrorgb...e-shootout.html

Honestly I’d try to sell that if it’s sealed, as it’s going to be mostly inferior to the new collection. Having the originals is nice, but I’m pretty sure that set doesn’t include the DLC, which is critical to understand the full story in 2 and 3 at least.

The DLC is free now. Still, yeah, i’d hold off for the new version.

Baldurs gate dark alliance remastered got leaked through PSN

No word if it has online coop but the trailer looks touched up vs a 1 to 1 port.

Hopefully it's $20 and has online co op.
