Quake 1 and 2 were so loving good. Those games were a major part of my childhood in the 90s.
There's an entire summer of my life from which I remember nothing but Quake 2 CTF and the Beastie Boys' Hello Nasty, mostly played together.

...but i didnt finish




speaking of 360 launch titles, I also bought CoD2 (which I played on PC approximately 1000 times) and CoD3 (which I never played on PC because they knew how bad it was and never released it for PC)

anyway CoD3 wasn't a launch title but it's pretty cool considering I had the PS2 version and pretty much only ever played online. my collection of "games I wanted to buy and play when I was a stupid kid making basically no money" is starting to get there

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.

It's actually looking like the $10 upgrade option might not exist on Xbox at all, so that solves that. It'll be $50 in that case if you didn't already get the Digital Deluxe edition.

I bought every single console COD game last year, including the OG XBOX games. CoD 3 suuuuuuuucks.

This is his signature thing to do when Xbox is about to announce an exclusive or company they bought. It doesn't 100% mean what we think it does, but I wouldn't be surprised now.

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

Canít wait for Kojima to post his ďgood morningĒ tweets on a Zune instead of that $1200 Sony Walkman.



Also itís a logical step since he still buys audio CDs, might as well develop for the console where those are still supported.

Apparently the MLB The Show 21 tech test is live. I signed up for it via the website like 2 weeks ago and didn't get any email or anything about it, but saw online that people were playing it so I checked the Xbox Insider Hub app on the Xbox and just signed up on there and it automatically started downloading.

The Doom 64 port is like The Phantom Pain, it exists to fix a plot hole that people didn't even realise was there. The new content paired with Doom Eternal ties the whole series together.

Quake ain't tying into poo poo, unfortunately.

This test is really bad though, like I have doubts the game will be playable in the next 60 days levels of bad. At least on PlayStation, it just crashes nonstop, and the graphics quality hasn't been updated at all on PS5.

Xbox version seemed fine, although I've been out of the loop with these types of games for a few years and the menus had me confused as hell. 8 different ways of throwing a pitch, from doing street fighter qcf inputs to a Mario Golf meter, then it's immediately into Diamond Dynasty mode with card packs and stadium unlocks. Wtf is going on I just wanna play a game of baseball.

Hey so if you log into gamepass on someones computer and download and launch your games, they will own those games forever on their account after they log back and this has been a known bug since the service launched that ms has not fixed so now its getting demo'd on youtube

Welcome to the general state of sports games in 2021 I guess, they've surpassed old school rpgs for grognardiness and cheesecake gatchas for gatchaness, since the money from whales and likely money laundering is just too good to pass up.

Iím looking for an Xbox controller sized for small hands, for my kids. Itís actually for my PC, but the xbone controllers I have are just so drat huge for their wee graspers. Any recommendations?

Only real requirement is that it isnít gonna break too fast. My kids are gentle on stuff, but I know a lot of 3rd party brands are trash, and I donít know which ones. If it worked with the MS wireless controller dongle thatíd be cool, otherwise wired is fine. Their hands are like 2/3 the size of a human hand.

Yeah, the micro-transaction gatcha money from these sports games, makes more in profit then the game sales themselves, which is why you see these sports titles drop to $10 - $20 so quickly.

The Series controllers are microscopically smaller than One controllers, but they're also on the smaller end of general controllers available these days. If those are too big for them then your options will be pretty limited. Maybe check out an 8-bitdo Pro pad.

I am not surprised there is already a large update. Its a very broken game in its current state. I get there is still like 58 days left, but this is so far from 2 months left of development time.

New Xbox Games with Gold:

Xbox One
- Warface: Breakout
- Vicious Attack Llama Apocalypse

Xbox 360
- Metal Slug 3
- Port Royale 3

Worst month of Xbox Gold since the old days where they just gave you Pool Nation every month. Vicious Attack Llama Apocalypse looks appalling. I don't want to play a game where the objective is to slaughter llamas. This will be the first game ever that I don't claim.
