There's not a separate thread for this, so I'll ask it here.

Is there ANY hope yet on the horizon for a return of NCAA football??? Any news??? It sucks that that no talent bust Ed O'Bannon's lawsuit came just at the right time for the last edition of NCAA football to be last-gen instead of this one. I'd throw my PS3 into the back of the closet but I have to keep it hooked up because it's the only way I can play college football.

I really wouldn't hold my breath about NCAA football. That lawsuit seems to have killed it triple dead. There's rumors every so often but nobody wants to get sued again, and now there's precedent for it.

rainbow dash why are you making such a cool face?!

I still think EA Access at the $30/year price point is a hell of a good deal, they just added Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 to the vault and I've been enjoying the heck out of Titanfall 2's campaign so far.

Those games plus all the GWG games I've accumulated over the years are enough of a reason for me to keep playing my xbone and get an xboxox when that's out.

360 gwg is good because the games are yours forever and are actually good fairly often. Xbone gwg is bad because of the opposite.

WOAH.

My Gamertag is still around. Was just able to log-in on the PC. NCAA 12 was the last XBOX game I played, September of 2013.

Civilization Revolution is the only game I "completed."

Do people actually compare gamer-scores and achievements with each-other and GAF about that??? Because if a game sucks or just dpesn't do it for me personally I sever immediately, screw "trophies"

Do small children still tea bag and swear at you if you play Halo online and get killed? Good times.

Most people can't play online in anything on Xbox due to "abuse" reports that are taken at face value. At least a few people who play Overwatch and certain other games for a month-ish suddenly found they couldn't find matches anymore because their rep is unrecoverably poisoned.

I have a burning desire to preorder the xbox one x and I have no real reason to. My friends all game on PC. I just want to play some 4k games on my big fancy tv damnit

sidenote...I had shadow complex and a bunch of xbox live arcade games on my 360. I'd like to download them to my xbox one. I can see the achievements for them on my current profile so I know they should still be tied to it, but they don't show up on my "ready to download" tab. Does anyone know how to re-download virtual games you bought on 360? I tried refreshing the screen (both bumpers+x) and hard power cycling the console but neither worked.

Not all 360 games are compatible on Xbox One, but I'm pretty sure Shadow Complex is at least, so if it's not showing as downloadable I don't know what the gently caress unless it's possible you had them on a different account than the one you're using now.

Also if your friends are PC gamers just get a fancy graphics card instead for it and wire your PC to the living room using that fancy new HDMI technology that's all the rage.

I'm surprised that I never got banned considering my days of XBL CoD4, MW2 and Blops1 trolling with other goons. We had a strong EU team that sometimes mixed with US goons that made pubbies scream all the time.

I've been playing online every day since 1998 and peak online experience was when goon Scatterfold told a kid that you unlocked MW2's developer menu by putting the 360 horizontal while the game was loading. Anyone who owned a 360 knows that usually ends with a scratched DVD and well, it was MW2, christmas day and all that poo poo. My profile had like a 96% avoided and all that stuff yet I still can play online.

univbee

Yeah I think there's a concentrated widespread effort now among people who play on XBL, and probably made worse as populations are far, far lower than they were in the 360's heyday.

It's made even worse in some games, like in MCC (and possibly 5?) you can explicitly tell the game not to put you in a game with specific people, and the upper-tier people basically do this with all newcomers and completely block them out of the upper levels of play which is now just an insular club of the same players.

"Most people," huh. Weird. Enforcement.xbox.com says I'm a "good player."

H-How is that even possible?

This is for the 360, but I went back through my download history to grab a few things I wanted to replay, and I noticed it was light. Super light. Missing half the things I ever had light. Is it just pulling things out of the list or what? I know for a fact I've played Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light but my download history says I never bought it.

e: Also since I got around to playing it Fable Anniversary is loving awful

There have been cases of things disappearing from people's purchase history that they've had to solve by making a phone call. Suggest checking your gmail archive for the email confirmation when you bought it. Another possibility: maybe you got it on Steam?

No, I have the 360 cheevos to prove it. It looks like I'm missing most of it after like 2012. I may need to make a call later then. I didn't plan on playing most of those games again but there were a few I was going to grab and some aren't on the store anymore.

I had some issues with Burnout Paradise time ago (by the time the xbone released), like it shows on my library on xbox.com account and on my download history on my 360 but when I went to the store through the console, it showed that I had to purchase it again. Fortunately checking one day, it was a bug on the store since just pressing the buy button it said it had no cost for me.

Maybe check some stuff manually if you remember and see if you can still download it again free.

I wouldn't worry too much about that. Enough people are so weak minded as to be easily dissuaded by Grima Worm-Tongues from something they would enjoy that you'll probably be able to walk into any store with an electronics section and buy one.
