Can anybody explain the Hitman upgrade situation? There are so many editions and most of them have the same description. I assume you need to buy the $100 version to get all content from 1 and 2.

I have 1 Gold edition from GWG (or GP?) and getting the free upgrade, and I think buying 2 Golden while on sale and playing them through the 3 starter then waiting for a better sale on 3 is the most cost effective option.

I had Hitman 1 on GWG but it's like it vanished; I can't even figure out how to install it anymore.  Do you have this problem?  I think it's why I can get it into Hitman 3 despite the fact that I have it in Hitman 2.

 

Hopefully not. That game should be burned, thrown away, and forever forgotten for being unfathomably bad.

 

So excited for the remaster. ME 1-3 are still far better games than games released today. I just hope that when it's all said and done, the changes don't severely alter the experience. ME1 citadel is by far the greatest location I've ever seen in a video game, so I really hope that at least feels the same. Easiest day 1 purchase for me though in a very long time.

I disagree, I liked Andromeda and was sad there were no sequels.  But definitely looking forward to the ME trilogy remaster.

If VR support comes to Xbox, I REALLY hope it's by way of existing hardware and not proprietary VR like Playstation.

There used to be an Oculus bundle that included an Xbox One controller - I always thought that might lead to a VR partnership between Oculus and Xbox, but sadly it never materialized.

There have been a lot of these deals lately, but this is the cheapest I've seen so far - 1-year PS+ for $25.59 at CDKeys.

What are you trying to watch in HBO Max that you think should be 4K? There’s only two titles on the service currently. Tom and Jerry is one. Judah and the Black Messiah is the other. Everything else is HD.

I'm pretty sure WW84 is also 4K, but I don't recommend watching that piece of crap.

 

EDIT: I forgot that it left HBO.  This is not a loss.

Will DMC5 be added to game pass soon or should I look for a deal on it? Is the special Ed worth it over the regular?

DMC5 has already been on Game Pass.  Whether or not it's coming back is anyone's guess.

huge hit titles

Somehow my brain combined these into a very different meaning the first time I read it.  But I'm OK with bringing those to GamePass as well.  :D

Started playing Ghost of Tsushima (PS4 Pro) - this might be the most gorgeous game I've ever seen.  Infamous is one of my all-time favorites and it looks like Sucker Punch has knocked it out of the park again.

I just bought Rogue Remastered so maybe you'll get that next month.  :P

The original game looks great with the One X enhancements, but it's very repetitive and clunky by modern standards. I remember even in ~2012 people recommending to read the story online and dive into AC2. I fired it up to see how it looked with the facelift and it was okay to dabble in for a few hours, but I definitely didn't have the patience to do more than that.

The side missions in AC1 were definitely repetitive - this was greatly improved in AC2+.  I still think it has one of the best main storylines of the pre-Origins games though.

anyone here getting the new Xbox Wireless Headphones??

I don't really understand the appeal of wireless headphones.  The wire on my headphones plugs right into the controller that I'm holding, and I never have to worry about charging them.  I guess it could make sense if you consume a lot of media (i.e. not using a controller) and need to keep the volume down, but fortunately I can just use the regular soundbar for that.

 

Konami to outsource its IP's to developers and publishers???

Their description of Metal Gear Survive made me laugh out loud. :)

Does anyone view the store on firefox on their computer?  Not only do I NOT get any screenshots, I don't even get any prices.  I turned off my ad blocker, but that doesn't help.  Stuff renders fine in Chrome, but I hate using a different browser for just one site.

I see prices in Firefox (85.0.2).

Some fixes for Control Ultimate crashes out now, but they are still investigating more that will be in a future patch.

Anyone else having issues with Gamepass quests not registering? I got the one from logging into the app from earlier today but not for playing a Gamepass game or opening Control.

Yeah, I had this problem earlier but they all popped now.  The Control one is annoying if you have the Ultimate Edition installed already, because it doesn't work with Ultimate - you have to install the original version that's on Game Pass.  You don't need any achievements, you just have to launch it.

For anyone with spacebucks to burn, Tenet is $10 on the MS Store and is MA compatible. I haven't seen it yet, but it seems pretty love-or-hate-it.

Here's what you need to know about Tenet - it's the biggest-budget hard sci-fi film that has ever been made; it took a director with Nolan's level of influence to make it happen.  I love hard sci-fi so I loved Tenet, but fair warning, my family is much more casual and did not like it.  If you don't want to deal with trying to understand what is happening with some mind-bending time travel involved, this may not be the movie for you.  It's not nearly as complicated as some indie stuff like Primer, but it's up there.

 

Also, I got a pretty good laugh out of the Screen Rant pitch meeting for it.  Even though I really like the movie, they definitely have some valid criticisms in there.

Crysis Remastered for $17.99 yay or nay?

This remaster came out at exactly the wrong time.  It should have been Series X enhanced - sign me up when that happens.
