Which one? WWE?


Yeah. Cancelled after Mania. I haven't bought merch in a while and wasn't paying full price for the Network, but I can't give them money.

So, did they remaster the games in any way, or do they look identical to how they were on the NES?

The Cyberpunk Xbox One X? Probably not, I have the Gears breaking ice one and that one looks pretty slick.

I just got my Xbox One X in November, and if we really are getting the exact same games as the Series X, and most of them on Game Pass, at least for the first year. I see no reason to upgrade yet, until they stop supporting the Xbox One X altogether. There is a rumor that there will be a cheaper Xbox Series S with no disc drive for less than the Series X, with possibly no backwards compatibility. But, that one is actually supposed to be less powerful than an Xbox One X. At least as far as terraflops are concerned.

Yea I’m in the same boat. Cyberpunk and halo will look great on the one x for the time being, no need to drop 500 to see them look a bit better. Maybe next year or if PS5 has big exclusives I’ll go next gen. I still don’t have a 4K tv lol

We just got a X1S in Feb and it is our first current gen console...been out of the current gaming loop for a while. I would jump on a X1X deal for our 4KTV (won it in a raffle) if I stumble on one but I do not see us going to next gen for a while. Would be tempted if PS5 is BC for all gens because BC is pretty much why we went with XB over PS....love the older stuff but hate dealing with old hardware issues. I like to game on the cheap but I would pay a premium to get better BC on new hardware.

She's not wrong considering she was working the whole time.

Picked up Roundguard in the sale, completed my first playthrough as rogue. 995,564 gold. 1 mil for the achievement... Number 7 on leaderboard though so that's not bad. 24 cheevos so far and it put me over 40k GS.

So when I go to xbox.com, there is a teaser telling us to check back in 3 days. Any idea what this is? (besides 4/20)

Edit: Oh, looks like possibly the cyberpunk console/controller

 

It seems a little late to sell special edition hardware with the Series X coming soon.

I might grab the controller. But I already have too many controllers.

There are people in this thread showing pictures of multiple Xbox consoles stacked together in artwork fashion and routinely talk about the dozens of special edition controllers they own.  No, it is apparently never too late to sell a special edition of anything.

I booted up Forza Horizon 4 for the first time in a good while. I absolutely was obsessed with this series since it first came out but now I have no idea what's going on lol. I mean I realize that more content should be a good thing, but does anyone else feel a little overwhelmed with everything the game throws at you now?

It's still the most fun I have in a racing game but I do miss simpler times lol.

I initially was going to wait a year just because in the past two generations, the consoles had fixed most hardware problems after the first year. With the stimulus check, I started to reconsider but I’ll probably just wait. I need a new computer anyhow.

Yeah, while I commend them for giving the community new goals each week, it can be a bit much. Especially when I need to put so much work into Animal Crossing.

Yeah, the seasonal events are a bit much for me. I loved the first 3 games, but by 3 you could tell they were in “we gotta add as much stuff as possible” mode.

The core gameplay is still an absolute blast, especially with friends online, but the sheet amount of stuff that’s always highlighted as “do this now!” is a detriment.

The issues with the Knights of Pen and Paper games were fixed early this morning, so they should start up and work just fine now.

Am I the only one who really, really hates having L3 be the default run button in FPS and third person games now? Between Doom 3, Borderlands, and RE3, my thumb is a little cramped. I finally remapped in the X1 OS and now have it mapped to the left bumper and it's a lifesaver.

I Think it's fine if it's the kinda sprint where if you just tap it down once in the direction you're moving towards. I Only hate it when they expect you to hold it down the whole time to keep sprinting. Though I will say, growing up with the SNES, I am annoyed whenever the jump button isn't on the A button.

Hey, can anyone recommend a program for Windows, Mac, or iOS that automates getting the daily MS rewards for search/etc.? I'm tired of using Bing for search on my phone and computer; Google gets better results.

 

I only found one app for Android that supposedly hasn't worked since 2018.

 

Let me know if anyone can help, or this if this is not the appropriate thread.

Why would you bother? Just search for an actor or an athlete on bing, when that shows up just keep clicking "People also search for" and then click the different pictures until you have however many searches you need. It takes a minute tops.

I search "songs by taylor swift" and "songs by chicago" everyday and just click each song.

 

It literally only takes a minute.

 

Just pick a couple artists/bands and click through top songs.

Using bots is explicitly against their terms of service. It’ll get you banned quick.

All I do is search “on this day”, click the 4 historic events then click through the days birthdays. Five minutes, no miss, no fuss, no account getting banned.

Bots won't get you banned unless you are setting them for insanely fast searches and circumventing VPN to earn points in other regions

You can also look up a movie or a show and select 'Cast.' Actors are listed in a scrolling menu and are searched really easy. It's what I do while sitting on hold when making calls, which happens a lot. 

 

I used to think it was really dumb, but getting new releases for $35 after cashing in a $25 gift card made me a believer. Especially when I can do it at work.

This bugs the carp out of me.  It has led to instances of accidental running/sprinting, and I'm always worried that holding it down for too long will cause the stick to drift or break.
