And it'll still disappoint.

Been messing with that N64 emulator. I bought it mostly due to the shock of seeing it on the actual XBox store. I have a bad feeling that guy may just take the money and disappear.
Mario 64 runs ok (not perfect by any means). Kart has noticable FPS issues. That's all I've tried so far.
That browser-based NESBox works way better than I was expecting. The minor audio glitches are annoying but not a dealbreaker, especially for something that is free. Apparently that guy is resubmitting, since the N64 one got through. Not sure his odds are going to be any better, especially since the damn thing is still called **NESBOX** and he has a built-in search for ROMs.

Bless this dude for not just throwing his hands up when Microsoft's bullshit got in the way of the app. He's added onedrive support for your legal collection of 2000 ROMs, as well as a toggle for browser / X1 pad controls.
It's not ideal obviously, but when I tested it 2 days ago, it was very smooth. Minor audio glitches that may be fixed with this newest release.

DMX song on Forza H3 demois heavily censored as well.
I laughed when they looped in the line from the previous verse over "go hang yourself" in Bust A Move, which is one of the wussiest, squeaky-clean popular rap songs ever. Then again, the line they loop in says "fatso." Surprised they aren't worried about people accusing their game of fat-shaming or something.

Wonder why this is happening.
This always happens to the leading console. The company behind it gets lazy and arrogant and give the other guys an opportunity to catch up a bit. Let's just hope MS manages to take advantage. Not that this REALLY has anything to do with it since this has all been in motion for months, but found it funny that Sony started stumbling a bit right after Adam Boyes leaves.
Dreamcast was also my first "day 1 with my own money" console. Hard to believe a new console that was easily the most powerful on the market when it came out was only 200 bucks at launch. Walked into Best Buy and just grabbed one off the shelf, I think it was the last one. Didn't have to line up or anything. Also bought Soul Calibur and whatever Blitz game it launched with.
Still probably my favorite console, or at least tied with 360. A ton of firsts on Dreamcast for me besides the fact that it was a day 1 purchase - first imported game (Fire Pro Wrestling D), first piracy, first time I'd just go out and buy games on a whim (bought Dead or Alive 2 while seeing it in motion for the first time on a demo kiosk in-store) rather than having to wait for a birthday/Xmas/convince my parents to buy it for me, first time trying to configure a network (I actually had the broadband adapter for it). Also the first time I was super pissed about a console failing far too soon.

When Sony includes a Blu-Ray on PS3 (and a DVD on PS2) and jack the price up, it's because "you don't understand, they are bleeding edge technology on all fronts." When they cheap out on the Pro by not including a 4k player, it's because "you don't understand, they focused on making a GAME CONSOLE first." Whichever way the wind blows, I guess. You can rest assured the same people saying "HA HA XBOX LOOKS LIKE SHIT" during the X1/PS4 launches will be back telling us how graphics don't matter when Scorpio hits.
Pac-Man CE2 being less on Amazon is a pleasant surprise and brings back memories of the brief, wonderful time where you could get really good deals on XBLA games via Amazon that weren't present on the Xbox.

So I just bought the Pac Man Museum game... Ms Pac Man is sold separately? What kind of rubbish be this!
Yeah. It was actually free when it came out for a short time...which I had forgotten about, so it was a pleasant surprise when I bought Museum yesterday and then saw Ms. Pac-Man was already owned.
The first emulator (NESbox...which does more consoles than just NES) since the Windows 10 / UWP update has been submitted for release on the Xbone. The world collectively holds its breath as we wait to see if it actually gets approved/released. The never ending battle of "Microsoft will never allow it" vs. "Emulators are perfectly legal and NESbox is already available on the Windows App Store" has been raging for days with no end in sight.
I do think the name "NESbox" isn't going to help with its chances.

I want castle of illusion but not for $15 hoping they do the decent thing and drop the price soon like every other system its on.
Probably not gonna happen by Friday. I know it did happen once or twice before, but not sure Castle of Illusion is a high enough profile game for them to bother with it.

Yep. Already works for preview members. There are two Pandora apps in the store currently, the one that's just a "P" icon is the newer one with background music.

People blowing their own money just so a friend doesn't buy a competing console is just about the best "console wars make you stupid" example I've ever heard.
Re: Titanfall 1 activity, it's still very easy to find a game. The negative reaction to the beta has recently caused an uptick in number of people playing the original game.
