So nobody was down with Steamworld Quest, the Hand of Gilgamech? I dunno, I thought it was a cute card-based RPG. Makes me want to play Baten Kaitos to see how they compare.

Great job there, Microsoft, taking away the older Xbox games and replacing them with... nothing.

Call me kooky, but I actually looked forward to those G1 and Xbox 360 games, and regret that they're no longer part of this service. One huge bonus is that you don't have to subscribe to Gold to keep them.

All hail the arrival of the Doritos Pope, and his crunchy, cheese powder-covered countenance! May he forever leave orange finger stains on us all!

I hope so because I got $10 on my Gameflip account that needs to be spent on cheap SNK games.

Awesome. I doubled my Neo-Geo library on the Xbox thanks to Gameflip. Was I going to pay $8 for League Bowling and Ninja Commando? Hell no! Did I still want them? Hell yes!

Skyrim was only a once in a generation type of game because that's how long they are taking to make the sequel!

No, Skyrim is a once every console generation kind of game, because that's how often we receive it. At some point Bethesda will make a time machine just so they can sell Skyrim to ColecoVision owners.

This game is ridiculously hard! It drops you right on the frying pan the moment it begins. I don't even think Doom 2016 was this demanding.

You forgot the comma. "No, rip-off there!"

Feh. If you can make a handheld play Nier Automata, then you make an Xbox Series S play Gotham Knights. Hell, I was steamed when SNK forced an upgrade to the Series for King of Fighters XV. If the Xbox One can do Killer Instinct, KOF XV should be no problem for it.

I have a hard time seeing the value in the streaming box if it's more than $100 (including a controller). I bought a used Series S for $170. Streaming box + a lot more...

How are you getting these crazy prices?! I was about to buy a $170 Series S from a guy on AtariAge, but he wound up selling it to his friend behind my back. Didn't even know he changed his mind until he said "Hey, I just gave it to my friend instead." Oh well thanks a lot, chump, I thought we had already made a deal here!

I want to just play a few holes in the practice mode, but that menu is like a MAZE, man. It looks like it's trying to push me through the career mode, but I don't want that kind of commitment. Just let me shag some balls! That's it! I don't want to be Tiger Woods here.

For those who may have wondered, I got things smoothed out with GameFlip. No need for an ID; just use Google Pay as one other person mentioned. I'm now the proud owner of ten extra Neo-Geo games! 

 

Anyway, I agree with Deadpool about customizable controls. Nintendo is still reluctant to offer this if the Switch is any indication. You're going to learn to play the game the way THEY imagined it, or you're not playing it at all.

Can't they just take it away from you? I'm hearing that Wiener Bros. is doing that with Final Space and their other cartoons. Doesn't matter if you bought it! Sorry, you can't have it anymore! Welcome to our crappy digital future!

Somebody help me feel at ease about sending a picture of my face and ID to GameFlip. I very badly want their stockpile of el cheapo Neo-Geo games (since Hamster hasn't had ANY kind of sale on the Xbox for years) but I just as badly don't want to send private information to random people on the internet. Nobody at GOG or GameBillet or Steam or Epic or whatever is demanding a photo ID from me, like I was buying liquor and a porno mag instead of old video games.

Aggravating. On a related note, I keep wondering what Microsoft did to Hamster Corporation to sour them on the Xbox brand. There have been no discounts on their Neo-Geo games for years, and Hamster refuses to give Xbox owners arcade games outside of what's on the Neo-Geo. You'd think Microsoft had forced them to take a tour of Richard Gere's lower intestine or something.
