Do backwards compatibility disk games even work without an internet connection?
From what I’ve seen it just downloads a new exec from the Xbox store without even copying across disk data.

No. As mentioned above, the discs just verify ownership of the digital file.

You do need internet to install any BC games, but not to play them once they're installed.

now that the switch thread is aflame with anime meltdowns and the ps5 thread has taken the switch thread's place of pretending that controller drift isn't happening, this is again shown to be the best console thread. the blessings of low expectations

been pretty impressed with what i think is the machine-learning hdr in dq11s. was especially nice in the time tower with all the light shining in the windows and across the pathways

oh but apparently i had a handful of forza 4 dlc that didnt install for some reason? half of it was sitting unchecked in the manage game data screen which doesnt make much sense to me since i'm sure i bought it all at the same time. in fact i think it was all a bundle. vaguely annoying

Pillars of Eternity 2 question. I’m playing in turn based and every few battles something will happen where I can’t control the movement of my characters. I’ll try to attack someone they are standing next to, and the motion line will appear off in the other direction and they will go off that way. No matter where I try to direct them, they go running off. This is game breaking if it’s not something incredibly dumb on my end and it keeps happening.

This same thing happened to me early in the game, also in turn based mode. Characters just moved to the cave's exit regardless of my input.

I think PS5 ownership correlates with ethnic/national diversity—PlayStation has global presence where Xbox doesn’t, so people with international backgrounds or family abroad are likelier to go PS5 in my limited experience

I think Xbox is probably the more working class console in the US at this point tho. They’re definitely aiming to be the most affordable and “value for money”

As always Nintendo is the wildcard

Yeah this was a massive meltdown worthy distinction; you'll need internet to install the game but once installed as long as you don't lose the disc you can turn off the internet and xbox don't care. This still does not prevent people from being irked and upset, so your mileage may vary.

Hey I know a lot of goons are already all over stuff like tv calibration and what not, but I wanted to point out that the xbox has a pretty nice and robust tv calibration feature built in. I hadn't ever properly calibrated my 4k tv or recalibrated the old 42 inch I put upstairs for the new viewing environment, and they both look incredible now. Mass Effect already lookin' remastered on my new settings.

I have finished Quake 4, but not since it first came out. All I really remember about that game is that the guns sounded like nerf guns. I should play that again. It was originally a launch Xbox 360 title, or at least close.

It was a launch title in NA/EU.

Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire warning — it does not seem to support quick resume. Even when putting the system to sleep and not having played any other games it loads to the main menu some of the time. Always save first.

And then when it does suspend, the game timer keeps running, so I’m already up to 90 hours even though I’ve played 6 or so.

the only winning move regarding anything to do with ubisoft after it was revealed that they have coddled sexual assaulters for literally decades, giving them promotions despite knowing what they've done and covering their actions up, is to not give them a single solitary dollar for anything they ever have released in the past nor anything they release until the day yves guillemot and his merry band of monsters have nothing to do with that terrible company ever again

THPS1+2 is getting next gen versions. Digital Deluxe gets it free, regular is $10 extra. I might skip it honestly. I'll have to check the DF data but I'm pretty sure the One X version runs at 1440/60 at least. I love the game but I'm not paying to unlock extra pixels. gently caress off Activision.
