im still pretty new to the game since i havent played it since it came out on the 360 so forgive if i suck at it but ill add u

No worries. I am a bit rusty myself.  The game is pretty forgiving in my opinion. When you die you just lose in game cash which is pretty insignificant in my opinion. 

 

The game is a lot of fun when you play online with other players. I miss playing this game online with others.

Nope, all I ever got was the digital version. It was bizarre and I tried the license trick, removed cache, completely deleted and reinstalled the game. Nothing worked...

 

 

No disk, never owned a forza physical game.

Darn. I guess that would have been too easy to fix the problem. I booted the game up on my primary 360 to see if I could get the error. It seemed to work fine. I played the game a little and got an achievement. It did take a little bit to sync my cloud save for the game on startup. When I have some time I will try again on my other 360s to see if I can replicate the issue.

Anyone have a clue why I can't play Forza Horizon 1 on my 360 but it works just fine on my one?

 

I have it downloaded digitally on the 360 and it always gives me the insert disc or disc is dirty notice....

 

Pretty sure I own it from GWG not gamepass or anything (if it's even on gamepass)...

 

 

Seems to be a known issues:

 

https://gamefaqs.gam...ox-360/70008898

 

It says try clearing the cache.

 

 

Forza 1 on 360 is a known from god knows how long ago. When I first bought it, I was incredibly frustrated and no matter what you do, if you have the issue there is jo way around it. Support couldn't help me, nothing could.

To this day I cant launch the game, not that I tried in the last couple of years. They aren't going to fix any shit for 360; so, give up any hope.

Here's a thought. Did you install the game from disk at any point prior to getting the digital version? When you download the digital version the installed disk version will still be on on your HD unless you go back and delete it.

Been a member here since September 2006.  I did not own an XBox back then. I must have come here for news on the Wii or something else Nintendo related since I was really into the Nintendo DS back then. 

 

Oh and I am 52 years old.

:shock:

 

I can tell, haha. 

 

Too many games and so little time to play them. Back in the day on my Commodore 64 I had a similar problem.  Lots of games copied from my friends on floppy disks and lots of time to play games. I miss those days. ;)

That's too damn many games! 

I like having options.

I have 55 games installed between the internal 1tb and an external 1tb. I have no idea why you guys are installing past 2tb's, haha. It's not like the stuff you own will disappear. 

I have 888 games installed at the moment ;)

So I bought the 1X on Black Friday and have been making my way through a backlog, only to realize that I'm already using up most of the 1TB. Like, I have Halo 5 on disc, but just the update to it is 55GB? Pretty ridiculous.

 

What do you all use for external hard drives? How well do WD Greens or other mechanical drives operate with it? I don't want to keep hemorrhaging money buying hard drives to store patches for games that should've been more complete when they were released.

This is the reason I buy most games digitally for the XBox One. The discs are pretty much installers for the real game and require huge downloads before being playable. Might as well skip the discs and just download the games in my opinion. I have a Western Digital 10TB USB 3.0 self powered drive myself to store most of my games. I also have a Western Digital 512GB SSD drive for games with long load times. I don't even use the XBox One 1TB internal drive.

Hmm looks like we might be back to dollar to point purchases with MS rewards. I just purchased two items at 7.50 each and my shop history is showing 7 points for each purchase, 

It could be a glitch. I have had that happen occasionally throughout the year. You should open a ticket with MS Rewards support to document you did not receive the expected rewards points for your purchases. 

 

Here is the link to MS Rewards support: https://go.microsoft.../?LinkID=823675

Bud Spencer & Terence Hill - Slaps And Beans - $13.99 - 30% off

 

This game is strangely compelling to me...I think it was the music in the trailer that grabbed me:

 

That music does make that trailer. 

 

 

Apparently my big spiel about Ennio Morricone being the greatest composer of all time was unnecessary. He didn't write this as far as I know.

I have never heard of these characters, but seeing that video puts some of the trailer for the game in context. 

 

This game was not on my radar until now :)

More weapons, less fog and overall more polish. Also the Cerebral Bore!!!!!!

Though I'm skeptic on how it's aged since I haven't played it in almost twenty years when I rented it from Hollywood Videos.

I paid full price for Turok 2 when it came out on XBox One. I definitely like it better than the first Turok game which I picked up on sale. 

 

I will say the remaster makes the game better than the original N64 game which had terrible frame rate issues. Now it is all silky smooth frame rate and nice pretty graphics. Makes it a totally new game.  Definitely worth $5.

I’m still on the fence on getting Injustice 2 or Mortal Kombat XL. I haven’t played Borderlands in a long time but I never could get into it. Is it worth trying again with the Handsome Collection?

For Borderlands I would say if you could not get into it before I doubt that the Handsome Collection will change your mind.

I highly recommend picking up X Morph defense if you enjoy tower defense strategy mixed with some fun twin stick shooting game play. I liked it so much I made a clip for the first level :

 

 

 

I love this game so far. It is $10 (50% off) as part of the Ultimate Game Sale

It looks like both Risk and Risk: Urban Assault are both on sale for $6.  If I had to pick one, which one would be better?

 

 

I’ve always been tempted by these and would like to know as well. Particularly wonder how much single player these offer. I used to love playing Risk when I was a kid.

I have both Risk games and they are both fun if you ever enjoyed the board game. Definitely worth $6 a piece.  Urban Assault it more like an expansion to Risk and uses the same game engine.   It adds some new game play elements and focuses on conquering cities not the world.  If you do get them make sure you download the Hasbro game channel to launch the games and unlock in game rewards.
