I think this is more standout than anything else in that post.

"we can confirm we are committed to offer free upgrades for current generation console owners of existing Bethesda titles we bring forward into the next generation of consoles."

Though I'm curious what else will make the leap. I'm thinking Fallout 76 since it's ongoing, and Fallout 4 and Skyrim seem obvious. Outside of that I'm not sure what they'd consider worth it. Maybe Wolfenstein and the other games running on Id Tech.

Decided I should re-play through the Halo series to prepare for Infinite. I've actually played through most of them before at one time or another, with the exceptions of 2 and ODST. But for whatever reason the series has never made much of an impression.

I had never played the campaign of 2 or 3 until recently. ODST campaign was the first game I played on the Xbox 360, and then Reach was awesome. 4 and 5 were okay, but infinite has me excited because it looks like it might have new content added if they are just planning on updating it instead of making a new one every few years.

The hunter armor looks samurai-esque. I want it.

I was actually surprised at the "global" numbers of Android vs Apple when this fallout started to happen. I thought Apple had way more of a foothold. I doubt it would change a lot of everyday user's minds, if I had Apple though I definitely would be switching 

After being with iPhone since the beginning, I switched to Android last year, a Galaxy Note 9.  I'm sorry to you Android people out there, but, at least for me, Android sucks.  I only lasted on Android about 8 months and quickly switched back to the iPhone when the 11 came out.  I doubt I'll ever give Android another look unless google really shifts focus on updates and quality.  Even Android tablets are garbage in comparison.  I have a 4 year old iPad that still runs everything and is on the current iOS, my Android tablet from that time is slow and the battery barely lasts and is at least 3 Android revisions behind.

 

Apple has a couple of annoyances, but the product is quality and I'm not giving that up for a streaming service.  I just hope Apple loosens up on the policy like they have on numerous things in the past.

Bought Bug Fables. Kind of surprised that the file size is so tiny. I was under the impression that it's a pretty sizeable JRPG style game.

Anyone have a link to where you can see what part of your gift card balance will expire and what date?  I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Yeah, I got an iPad Air 3 from the Black Friday sale and it’s night and day between it and the Android tablets I’ve used.

I had to check from my Xbox (under payment options) to see when my balance expires.

 

When I logged into my MS account this morning my expiring balance didn't show up.

It’s Paper Mario Thousand Year Door cut/paste done very well with 40+ hours of gameplay, though I would not classify it as a JRPG.

Yeah, I thought I was going crazy, I knew I was looking in the right spot. Thanks for the heads up on looking on the Xbox, I’ll check there.

Wow, what a weird trailer. It seemed like mostly dancing, but I guess that's not an inaccurate portrayal of Destiny. :) I don't really dig the samurai look of the Hunter armor but that sparrow looks great.

Thank you all for the well wishes. This truly is an awesome community. I know some of you are also struggling with medical conditions and losses in your families. I hope the best for all of you. Echotech83 and Kemosahbe, I'm going to check out the Bio Oil you recommended, thank you.

 

 

 

Thank you Pat, you are too kind. I do have a pretty big backlog of games, so please don't feel like you have to get me something. The sentiment alone means a lot to me.

 

I might also do some achievement hunting while I'm recovering. My gamertag is: x 2nd 0pp x (with a zero not an O)

I've been using TrueAchievements a lot more to find gaming sessions for old games https://www.trueachi...mer/x 2nd 0pp x

 

 

It's definitely worth getting checked, even if it just ends up being a lymph node responding to a small infection or something else non-threatening. Mine was about the size of an almond and that triggered the Doctor to send me in for a non-invasive ultrasound. If anything, get it checked to have peace of mind

Homie is being WAYYYY to chill about this, lets fucking ruin his backlog even more fam. keep an eye on your inbox

 

 

also the last 4 games they added to gamepass are fucking great, especially undermine

With the move of the original Xbox and Xbox 360 to the modern store there is a bit of a separation between the two when it comes to sales. Most of the sale tracker sites are still looking at the old store while there are a couple of games that are only on sale in the modern one. Here are two that I found so far:

 

Asteroids & Deluxe $0.99 (originally $2.99) https://www.microsof...vot:overviewtab

Marathon: Durandal $4.99 (originally $9.99) https://www.microsof...vot:overviewtab

 

Neither of these go on sale often.  I picked up both.

From the studio head at Crystal Dynamics:

“Amos also points out that Hawkeye was recently revealed as the game's first post-launch hero, saying, "as we have just announced with Hawkeye, there are more heroes to come. So this is an opportunity to celebrate (Spider-Man’s addition) uniquely for those players (on PlayStation) because of that relationship, but I think there’s so much of a world for people to explore... I would say, look at all this stuff you get to play with.” Amos added that "for those players who absolutely want to play as Spider-Man, you have the option to do so on PlayStation.””

You want Spider-Man in your game? We have a console for you... it’s called PlayStation.

Exactly when I first saw that I thought that's the most Don Mattrick thing I've heard. Hope it works out just as well for him.

I think it sounds a lot better if he just said “We know our PC and Xbox players are disappointed to not have Spider-Man, but we like money to feed our families and the low reception of this game to this point means we jumped at the opportunity for Sony to pay us to keep Spider-Man exclusive to there version of the game, then if none of you buy this game at least we have the fistfuls of cash Sony already gave us”

In related to XCloud news, Facebook Gaming isn’t allowed to have games on ios either and Facebook is not happy:

https://mashable.com...ming-ios-apple/

Between Facebook Gaming, XCloud and Stadia, I would think Apple will eventually get pressured to allow its customers to access there services.

Agreed. Apple is being anti-competitive. If YouTube, Spotify, Hulu, Netflix, and other streaming services are allowed, they have no grounds.

I honestly think some of these Apple policies will change here pretty soon. EU is looking into their App store in an antitrust investigation and quite often they end up spanking these large corporations over there. The US is starting an investigation also, but not sure where that stands.

 

https://www.politico...pp-store-364463

 

 

TL:DR

 

Even worse for Apple, both the Trump administration and the EU’s antitrust authorities appear to be of similar mindsets in examining the company’s ironclad control of its app platform. POLITICO reported last month that the U.S. Justice Department and a coalition of state attorneys general have taken the first steps toward an antitrust case against Apple, just after European competition officials announced two investigations of the company.
