New 360 X1X enhanced games today! Crackdown, Fable, Witcher 2, and Forza Horizon. Already tried Crackdown, definitely a noticeable improvement. Much better aliasing and everything runs good so far, I have tried to tax the system with blowing up a lot of stuff at once and haven't seen slowdown in the way I did when playing on the 360. There may still be some there since I couldn't get big chains of explosions going, but blowing up 3 or 4 cars at once was smooth compared to the 360.

Can also enable/disable the enhancements now for any X1X enhanced 360 title by using the start+select dashboard menu from within the 360 game.

EDIT - Crackdown gif that demonstrates change with enhancements

Playing Crazy Taxi without the real soundtrack is rough. Weird because even the Android port has the real songs.

Actually pretty excited for Split Second to be GWG. Regretted not playing it when it came out.

I wonder what site he'll go to to ask to be unbanned from here once that happens.

If you were thinking about getting Fire Pro World on Steam, now is the time. It's coming out of early access in a few weeks and the price will go up a bit once it's actually "out."

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.

Skate 4 on the Deliciouspinto spreadsheet...nice.


Aiming for Injustice 2 for 20 bucks, Tekken 7 for 19 and Wolfenstein 2 for 25.

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.
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.

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.
