For the love of god, can we keep this free from political mumbo-jumbo?

Unfortunately no. People just can't shut up and donate, they need to make it about them.

Seeing the enhancements to Skyrim make me kind of regret not getting it for 15 bucks or whatever it was during the sales.

 

Looks like Battlegrounds is going to be 60FPS on X1X, to the surprise of...some, I guess? I'm only mildly interested since I'm sure I'll be terrible at it, but between it being fairly cheap and the news about the framerate I'll probably get it.

Impact is throwing in the towel on trying to keep the "Broken" gimmick to themselves...as well as controlling pretty much any gimmick any Impact performer uses.

 

I'd say good news for Matt, but it's not like "we can't afford pyro anymore" WWE is going to allow him to make and air 15 minute minimovies on Raw that he needs to maximize the effectiveness of the character. At best he's going to be a good guy version of Bray Wyatt that cuts the same promo every other week but never wins/does anything, and gets a segment that's the Raw equivalent of Fashion Files, featuring Matt dressing up his kid in funny costumes and playing with a drone he bought on Amazon Prime.

1. Spec Ops the Line
2. Asura's Warth
3. Darkstalkers Resurection
4. Street Fighter 3 Third Strike
5. Darkness II
6. Lost Planet Games (2, 3, colonies)
7. Crackdown 1 and 2
8. Castlevania Games (harmony, lords of shadow, symphony)
9. Beautiful Katamari


Thoughts on any of these? Thanks in advice for any advice.


1. Worth it for cheap. Average game with a pretty top-notch story, especially as you get close to the end.

2. Really nothing like it. Stylish as hell. Quick Time Events on steroids. Really shitty they hide the true ending behind paid DLC...otherwise, highly recommended.

3. Never played

4. If you buy it expecting SF2 (or even 4), you may not like it. On its own it's well-made. Not my thing though, just too "technical" a game for me to get very good at.

5. Never played

6. 1 is an interesting curiosity. Again, there isn't much like it, mostly because of the environment. 2 went off the tracks and 3 didn't do much to correct it.

7. Crackdown was one of my favorite 360 games ever. That said, it has not aged well. If you were playing it in 2007 it was a blast...nowadays it just seems pretty janky and occasionally frustrating. Crackdown 2 was one of the most disappointing sequels I've ever seen. Avoid.

8. Symphony is one of the 20 best video games ever made. Not optional. Other ones I never played.

9. Never played

Not big on Drew dropping the belt already, but honestly that guy should have probably been on the main roster once he re-signed anyway, so...I dunno. Hope his arm isn't as bad as most are expecting.

 

War Games was a super fun mess.

 

Dream/Black is my MOTY. Zero doubt about it. Holy fucking shit. Perfect build-up, perfect characters, perfect match, perfect payoff, even a perfect crowd.

i'm curious when you bought and installed halo 5. also, is it disc or digital? i'm trying to establish a pattern where games only say scorpio if they were installed after the x1x launch

Perhaps stupidly, earlier today I did a full console wipe back to factory, and formatted my external drive as well before I tested further...so my testing now may actually be getting different results than what I had occurring yesterday. But at this point I'm so annoyed about how inconsistent and confusing the information we're getting is that I was willing to just go nuclear with my attempts to resolve it.
 
Anyway, after wiping everything and reinstalling/redownloading a few titles, I think Titanfall 2 should be good now (I compared the size of the install with a friend's and they were the same) - it still does not say that Durango or Scorpio assets are installed, BUT, since the official XBox One X Enhanced listing for the game says it's enhanced only - meaning no HDR or 4k, so this is likely as it should be (as mentioned a couple days ago). Still doesn't explain why others are seeing something different, but more on that in a second.
 
Here's what I've got right now. I've included testing I did on my friend's console as well to compare. Spoiler'd since I know a bunch of you guys probably don't care about this stuff.
 
Spoiler
 
So, Halo 5, Killer Instinct, Hitman, and RotTR should theoretically be applying something since they're all 4k. For me, Halo 5 and RotTR are doing so. KI and Hitman are not...at least according to the menu.
 
As has already been mentioned by others, some of this may fall on the start+select+bumpers menu data being buggy or just not being consistent across consoles (CoD WWII as an example of something not being displayed properly). I guess there isn't much else anyone can do at this point other than wait and see what happens.

IT'S AFTER MIDNIGHT. GO FORTH AND X.

 

Waiting for mine since it's coming from Amazon today, but went with a friend to Best Buy to pick his up. No freebies. Sad foghorn sound.

The X is actually just a tiny bit wider. Not a difference of any consequence though. 11.6 inches vs 11.8. It's also deeper, but again not of any significance. 9.45 inches vs 9.01. source: https://www.cnet.com...sizes-compared/

Was going to sell my Scorpio and just buy the regular one, but the profit on the Scorpio has gone down enough recently that I'll probably keep it since it barely seems worth the hassle of selling. Either way, pretty excited for Tuesday.

Added a new indicator on the front page list (!!!) for XBox 360 games enhanced on XBox One. So far Halo 3, Skate 3, Oblivion, Fallout 3, Mirror's Edge, and Assassin's Creed.

Looks like you'll want your "active games" on your X1X internal:

I'll be interested to see what happens since my external drive is an SSD. Stuff like GTA V and Witcher 3 were way faster on it than the internal of the S. 24 seconds on GTA V sounds about right, I believe my SSD got it running in 20-22.

 

Either way, glad to see a noticeable speed-up.

 

Regarding the "negative" reviews...I dunno. It's annoying to see them harping on lack of games, but also some of those reviews are read by some people who may not be aware of the PS4's advantage in exclusives. I don't really have a problem with it being mentioned. If MS didn't want it mentioned, they shouldn't have let themselves get in this position.

FWIW, correction from above - XLink Kai WILL work to play stuff online on the X1 via system link. I tried Crimson Skies and found zero players though. Halo 2 was the only game with any population of note.

People are reporting that Xlink Kai actually *does* work to play the old games online on the X1 via the system link option. I may actually try that this weekend on Crimson Skies.

Kind of sucks we're probably only going to get 2-3 OG updates in 2018 at this rate, but I guess that's really no different that how OG on the 360 was handled. Fewer but more substantial updates.

Agreed with whoever said Psychonauts holds up well earlier. I have owned it for well over 10 years now, got it at some Toys R Us sale where it wound up being like 15 bucks, but never actually played it until now. Seems super well done compared to most cartoony games. Some of the best voice acting I've heard in a game.


I'm pretty floored how good these OG games look on X1. No one is going to mistake them for a new 2017 game by any means, but it's also not the blurry mess that I was expecting. Crimson Skies and Psychonauts look and sound good enough that I'll probably actually play through both of them. The Crimson Skies music is especially awesome, I had completely forgotten about that.


it has the Ninja Gaiden Arcade game instead.

That is a poor, poor trade for the NES games.
