Does Dragon Age DLC ever go on sale? Will they announce a Dragon Age Legendary Edition after I buy all of it?

I don't see a Legendary edition happening. It's more complex than Mass Effect since 1, 2, and Inquisition share basically no assets between them, and 3 is on different engine entirely. Maybe a basic upscaling of Origins and 2 could happen, but EA hasn't really been doing those.

Also, ME Legendary supposedly only happened to get the reformed Mass Effect team up to speed, but I kind of doubt that since Bioware pretty much always has the bulk of their team on one project at a time. Plus remastering old assets on UE3 probably doesn't compare much to the work needed for ME4.

Supposed leak of Shin Megami Tensai 3, 4, and 5 coming to Xbox. Originally posted on 4chan, they look real enough, but could easily be fakes.

SMT4 is the one that makes it seem real. The other games have current console versions already. 4 is a port from 3DS so it has a newly added mimi-map in the shit.

I can see the nostalgia factor of wanting the Duke, but the 360 controller is just a worse version of the current design. At least it isn't as expensive I guess.

I finally opened and set up my Series X today. After life with Xbox One, this thing is lightning fast! I brought over some of my old games on an external drive, but I'm trying to decide which Series X enhanced game to start with. I've had a physical copy of Cyberpunk for over a year that I bought when it was $10, but I'm looking for suggestions since I've heard that game sucks even with the enhancement.


Cyberpunk is fine now, just not the 11 out of 10 it was hyped up to be. It's probably one of the better looking games on the system, but I would recommend staying in performance mode as the ray tracing doesn't do much while tanking the FPS.

As far as harnessing the power of next-gen to look great, I think Doom Eternal and Fortnite are both up high on the list. Meaning high detail in their respective art styles with great performance, and a lot of technical bells and whistles.

The recent Resident Evil games all look pretty good, and Ubisoft has updated most of their games to run 4K/60 or close to it. Hitman looks pretty good.

These delays make prepaying for Game Pass a slap in the face. Microsoft doesn’t care as they already have our money. Can’t wait for my subscription to expire so I no longer contribute to their active member count.

If you're implying you only have multiple years of GamePass to play Starfield, why not just buy the game at launch instead?

Going down to deals and special offers on the Xbox store on the console, I see F1 22 Championships Content bundle listed as free for me based on recent activity. Normally $19.99. Don't know if same for you guys.

It's one of the GamePass Ultimate EA Play perks.

Ironically, that might have prevented MEA from getting FPS boost like Dragon Age did.

Plenty of games have the option to pick between Enhancement or FPS boost, like Fallout 4 and 76, or Bioware's own Anthem. I would guess the issue was Frostbite not being well optimized for open world RPGs meant Inquisition and Andromeda probably weren't stable at 60 FPS.

As of June 1st movies anywhere will no longer support Screen Pass or Watch Together. Damn shame

Man, this thread is going to get updated like half as often once that comes into effect.

My electric is repaired and power restored as of this morning. Still need to get the damage to the outside of the house fixed, but I'll be back home after work.

The last week of lugging around my Series X definitely instilled the interest of getting an S as backup. I don't have Verizon or I would have jumped on that.

Battle Passes are so terrible. When the company justifies the existence of it by 'just cosmetic', you know it's a detriment to the game. That with always online (I really wouldn't be surprised if this shit gets shut down in a couple of years) and a $70 price tag, I think I'm just gonna skip this unless it's like $10 or something on Argentina.

I don't automatically agree with this, but it is a huge red flag and most publishers are using it as a crutch to hammer their users for easy money.

The two well done battle passes I will call out are Fortnite and Destiny. Fortnite still is updated extremely frequently with new items, events, and map changes. It gives free stuff away fairly often, and the passes themselves are probably best overall as far as both nice cosmetics and giving you back extra "money" on top of what you spent, while also being easy to breeze through and unlock everything.

Destiny is full of issues, but that pass is used closer to a subscription model, with major gameplay/story content on top of the cosmetics.

Most of the OK passes like (current) Halo Infinite, are just worse imitations of the Fortnite model. And the bad ones like Overwatch or Apex are missing key pillars like having slow updates, bad free updates, or being a total slog to unlock.

The big difference between all of these mentioned games, and Suicide Squad, is that those games are not requiring me to spend SEVENTY USD to then have the honor of being able to buy a battlepass.

Glad you and your family are safe. Sucks about the tree hitting your house. Hopefully power will be restored quicker than anticipated and things get back to normal soon.

Thanks for the well wishes everyone. I called off work today to help get everything sorted. Filled the insurance claim, lucked out with someone to remove the downed part of the tree and tarp the damaged area, and called about a dozen electricians to get the ball rolling on estimates. Still waiting for the power company to contact us or show up or something about the line situation. We dug out a heater for tonight, but have a reimbursed hotel starting tomorrow through Monday.

Driving through town I saw probably 30+ downed power lines and tons of closed roads with trees in them. All the electricians said they had close to 100 calls today as well.

Hoping we're back on in a few days, I had a friend lose her power today and her area is getting estimates of March 1st for restoration.
