Great, now I gotta figure out which games I want to experience first hand with the fresh hotness and not bleach my eyes with One X power.

I did a 100% play through of Red Dead Redemption 1 when it went to 4K on the One X. I'm doubtful it's going to happen, but it's not a 0% chance I'm not going to do that again with HDR.

Did you check the settings? There are quite a few options. I just finished the game last night in 4K/30fps on PS4Pro.


Well shit. I don't have a Pro but supposedly there's a 30fps Lock setting in the base game. I'll have to give that a try, and maybe I'll actually finish the game.

On happier, less stressful and about fucking time news; Simpsons is finally original aspect ratio on Disney+. You just have to make sure the remaster switch is off when watching.

As Kimi Raikkonen said after winning the US Grand Prix two years ago... “Thank you! Fucking finally!”

"Select titles will get doubled frame rate (30 -> 60, 60 -> 120)"

Am I the only one who thinks certain games SUFFER from pushing 60fps? Specifically, story-driven/cinematic games? I think it might be one of the main reasons I found it hard to get into The Last Of Us, because I played the PS4 remastered version and all the in-game cutscenes were smooth as a fighting game. I much prefer 30fps for those games, it looks more like a movie, which it's trying to convince me it is.

I find it very similar to motion-smoothing features on a TV, or the "soap opera effect" as it's otherwise known.

I don't agree. I've yet to play a game that I felt was being negatively affected by having a higher framerate, as long as it's stable. I'm much more sensitive to other effects if they're poorly implemented, like motion blur or some of the post processing effects out there.

I get the point you're making on a cinematic feeling, but if a studio really cares about this they can choose to lock framerates during cutscenes. I haven't really heard of this phenomenon in western games beyond pre-rendered cinematics sometimes being stuck at 30, but Ark System Works did it with Dragon Ball FighterZ's super attacks. It goes from 60 FPS gameplay to 24 FPS for animation to emulate the anime.

 

Really if anyone was going to put too much of a focus on a cinematic feel it'd be Naughty Dog, so you might be out of luck there. Hopefully way more games will start to give an option between a performance or graphics option on next gen so we both can get our preference, though it's hard to know if it'd lock all the way down to to 30.

Yeah, but he’s still awesome. I want to see him play 18 with Michael Jordan, mostly because you know both of them will show up with gangster rolls of cash ready to gamble on everything, including the color of the rake in the next bunker.

If you are looking for indies, look no further than Cuphead. The glory of classic cartoons turned into a run-n-gun/boss medley, it does all of them justice.

If you want less light-hearted and more pulling on your emotions, the pair of Ori games are wonderful platformers that tell a great story.

Got cuphead on ALL platforms already. Ori I got on gamepass. I really need something that I can't get on steam. wait a minute... I'm an idiot... old xbox 360 games would be perfect.

Edit
I knew this, but can’t use reward cash on backward compatible games. The OP said that we could when buying through the console though, but we can’t..or at least I couldn’t when I tried.

I wish the blacksmith and the traveling merchant didn't give you "Random Loot" in Minecraft Dungeons. It looks like you might be able to create some cool synergies with stuff but since it's all random harder than it needs to be to pull off.

Bing Rewards can be used to extend your Game Pass, so I wouldn't ignore it completely.  A few minutes of searches a day can make a difference, and there are specific Game Pass quests that will help you to rack up lots of points in a short amount of time.  Hey, free is free!

 

Anyway, I use the Xbox One tab on PS Prices to show me what's currently on sale.  That way, you can get the most out of your Xbox funds.

dude, this is gold. Also, I don't ignore it at all. I mine it a lot. There's an android app that would maximize your earnings by doing all searches (I don't want people to abuse the system like me though)

MS actually still is taking suggestions for additional BC games:

“ The team also continues to listen to feedback from the community on additional titles you would like to see added to the compatibility program.”

STUBBS...how is that on there yet?

Same, having it be completely up to RNG for a game like this isn't very appealing, but I suppose it'll keep folks coming back for that possible awesome roll with the equipment.

Like most MS games hopefully it's a "work in progress" and something they'll consider later. I get it has mostly an appeal to a younger player base than "I'm trying to Min/Max the shiz out of this" but even if I was a kid I'd still want to be look at all my bad azz Necromancer gear.

People use the PS Prices website for PlayStation 4 sales, but it's been updated to include every current system's sales.  Enjoy!

i see that for sure. I usually use price charting... but i like how this one is organized. Also, they serve different purposes.

What is the usual process when a game leaves Gamepass? I started Brothers and almost finished and wondering if i have until tonight midnight? tomorrow midnight? or am I  already out of luck? Xbox hours are always so complicated.

Hi, its me, ya boy

Like this post for a chance to win super mutant alien assault!

Haven't had one in a while so I'll grab a few winners :)


Feels good to be back

I’m not quite sure what this game is, but I definitely like the title.

Hey everyone, it's been a while!

 

Just wondering, how safe is it to buy Xbox Live codes from CDKeys? I'm running out next week and I've found a really good deal but they're Brazilian, so I'd have to use a VPN to redeem (is that bannable)?

cdkeys is safe in the sense that you will get a code from them and refund if there is a problem but they are a grey market and MS can easily ban your account for any number of reasons if they felt like it.

 

Me personally, I wouldn't buy Gold codes from different regions. Everyone I saw online said it was fine when they did ithat cdkeys deal and I sometimes buy and purchases with points cards from different regions but this seems like something that  can blow up in your face pretty easily.

I have Ghost Recon Wildlands Ultimate Edition on my wish list, looks like it’s in my price range again. After watching videos for it, I just now found out that you can hunt down a Predator, can you still do this? But man I really slept on this game. Gonna grab it tomorrow

Not sure about any DLC as I've only played the base game, but it's an absolutely fantastic game. Great story too, which you wouldn't suspect from a game like that, and incredible graphics/locations as well. Rolling through the salt flats was so cool. You'll enjoy it.

Such a shame that breakpoint was so terrible.

Brothers A Tale of Two Sons a couple of days ago. I didn't one sitting. It wasn't a very long game. I was also playing through Hydro Thunder which was supposed to leave on the 29th but it ended up leaving earlier. It's still on PC gamepass but my save didn't transfer over so I got screwed.

I would finish up Brothers A Tale of Two Sons ASAP just to be safe. I'm not sure if the 29th means 11:59 p.m. or if it just randomly leaves sometime on the 29th.

Hydro Thunder Hurricane is one of those weird ones that's not an achievement/save stack from the 360 days that are much more prevalent in the Xbox One days, so on the bright side you could play a great game again for double achievements

 

There is no rhyme or reason to when things really get deactivated from GamePass, I left Onrush up for 3 more nights after it was suppose to leave to get the last couple of achievements I needed. By "up" I mean I left my machine on connected to the internet didn't log out or start any other game.... that said I had some other game I can't recall this year that I was rushing to finish that called me out on the bullshiat and dropped me like a half hour past 9pm East Coast time. I find that Xbox uses 00:00 GMT time for almost everything these days.

And my first time I got an Orange Bow that shoots at two mobs at the same time. All the next attempts were white and green. What a tease.
