Has anyone else noticed "Max and the Curse of the Brotherhood" show up in their games list? I never purchased it but it somehow showed up today when I looked at my ready to install list...

I got Max Curse of the Brotherhood randomly added to my game list yesterday too. I never bought it either. It was GWG during a time when I had let my gold lapse for a few months.

 

What's weird is the Xbox.com listing for Max doesn't show I own it like my other games.

A documentary about collecting Nintendo games showed up on Amazon Prime Video.

I've been wanting to watch Nintendo Quest for awhile and almost bought it numerous times. I don't revisit documentarys too often except for King of Kong. Anyways, thanks for sharing that it's free via Prime and saving some of us a few bucks.

I would guess that the rest of the "coming soon" 360 digital downloads on Amazon are coming to BC also.

 

That's the only reason I would see for MS releasing them that way at this point in the 360's life cycle.

For reference, those coming soon 360 digital titles are:

 

Burnout Revenge

Crackdown 2

Dragon Age 2

Fable Anniversary

Fight Night Round 4

Lococycle

Skate 2

I was at Walmart and found a Leader Class Combiner Wars Starscream. I have seen pictures before online, but never seen one in person. I couldn't leave him there to be destroyed or stolen by someone whom might not appreciate him. ;)

 

Was he re-released with the new batch of Combiner Wars figures?

 

There's not many Transformers I would buy for myself, but I couldn't pass this one up. He's not quite as easy to transform as the silver tank Megatron, but he's also nowhere near the difficulty of Ultra Magnus either. I love the paint job and the crown on Starscream even if it's a repaint of another character. They've done a pretty good job of making him resemble the classic Starscream I grew up with.

 

My kids and I only own maybe 10 Combiner Wars figures because we just started getting them last year. Starscream and Megatron are easily the top 2 of the ones we own.

 

Ultra Magnus is the worst of them. He feels incredibly cheap and hollow. There's 2 red pieces on the side/back of his legs that keep popping off and the Minimus Transformer is difficult to transform without popping arms off.

 

What are some of everyone's favorites from the Combiner Wars line? My kids and I can't really afford Masterpiece editions.

I have a 2TB Western Digital My Passport Ultra USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive (WDBBKD0020BBK-NESN). Is it normal that the HDD stays on even when the Xbox One is off. Is there a way to have the external HDD turn off when the Xbox One is off?

Unless you set your Xbox One power options to "Energy Saving Mode", the drives connected via USB will stay on.
