Spyro is the only platformer from that era still worth playing, so its good that its remaster is on the Xbox family of badly named consoles

Holy poo poo there should be some sort of IRL achievement for playing Control while extremely high. I am doing it right now and my brain is yelling at me and telling me this is going to be a really bad time.

The tony hawk remake is very pretty but they are very deliberately only showing less than a second of footage of the board rolling because it looks floaty as gently caress. Every shot is of the skater jumping or just taking off or landing. With one or two awkward flying-skating shots in there.

Maybe they'll fix that before release.

I'm watching a streamer play The Culling Origins on Xbox Live (which was put on the service yesterday) and he is like one of 7 people playing. This is also a game where the max number of players to a game is 16, so the game server is mostly just full of bots.

If the physics aren't 1:1 with the originals they can just cancel it now because it'll be unplayable garbage like the HD cash in.

My main issue is still the speed you gain from grinding. Seems more like the later games where you really zip than 1/2 where you just continue your speed.

I downloaded the Halo collection through Xbox Game Pass. I was originally planning to play only Halo 4, but have really been impressed with how good it looks and how well it plays.

How do Halo Reach and ODST compare to it?

I have some credit on my account from a gift card, but when I went to buy Witcher 2 yesterday from the website store, there was no option to pull from my credit for payment. Can I only use account credit when using the console store and not from the website?

IIRC there's some backend fuckery with Xbox 360 games which make it so you can't use credit for those. Something like that, anyway.

I got Daytona USA the other day, and from what I tried there was absolutely no way to purchase it other than through the Xbox 360 store. Couldn't purchase it through the website or the Xbox One store. I was able to use some of my credit for that at least.

The backend is a loving mess for Xbox 360 games, it's apparently part of why you can't just see a price for 360 stuff on the XB1 store.

Daytona USA on anything except the giant arcade racing setup seems like the most pointless thing in the world. If you're not paying a dollar to get 3rd to last place you're not playing Daytona USA.

Yeah, that one is crazy. My guess is that it's doing some weird "pretend I'm an Xbox 360 client browsing the legacy store" nonsense to call up the price, which is odd because you can see them on the old 360 web store just fine without jumping through hoops.

I had a weird pricing thing with Skate 3 BC where if you tried to do stuff with the online pass it would charge you $5 while you could just go to the store in the Xbox One interface and download it for free. I could be misremembering but I think I got all the way to check out and about to pay five bucks before I exited out and saw I could get it for free.

I recently bought Forza Horizon 3 mostly because of seeing so many peoples praise for the Hot Wheels expansion, but I've also been in an arcade racer mood lately. The FH series just hits all the pleasure centers of my brain, I absolutely love how these games mix a good amount of realism and fun arcadeyness. FH4 kinda spoiled me with 60fps though, but I can't wait for FH5!

What's the next best thing outside of the FH series? I hear Wreckfest is pretty good, and some of the newer NFS games are enjoyable.

That game is S-tier butthole clencher when you're doing a long rear end rain stage. I also like how they tried to mitigate people's tendency to want to restart any race they crash on or gently caress up real bad with the limited restarts.

I think you can just cancel your gamepass and it will say that it will just end your subscription when it runs out. But don't blame me if that doesn't work.

Gamepass is pretty cool. A fair share of quality titles that I may have bought on Steam sale is all there for a fraction of their retail price.
