My series X randomly can't read my mafia definitive edition disc. I had downloaded it but never played it. Everything else is fine, disc isn't damaged. So weird.

Do a hard restart on your console. I had this problem with another game and it was driving me nuts. But it worked fine after I held down the power button for ten seconds or whatever and it did the full shutdown instead of the standby mode.

I touched the side of my Xbox today when the sun was beaming on him and it was scorching. I guess it’s just the outside that’s getting toasty, and I wouldn’t really be playing when it’s sunny because you can’t see poo poo on my TV when it’s this bright anyway. I’ll probably move it, but I’ll be sure to keep you all updated.

Played Dirt 5 for like 3 - 4 hours last night, it's not a game I would have been happy paying $70 for, but the Series X enhanced version is really nice looking after the updates that fixed the graphic issues, and the races in the campaign are short and fun.

This is chronic among kids games, lately. The 1st Paw Patrol game not only doesn't have any voice acting from the show so the dogs stare at you with silent, dead eyes, they didn't even license the theme song

Yeah I got that Cartoon Network mashup side scrolling beat em up thing thinking it would be good to play with the kids but the characters didn't say anything so it all felt like a weird knock off. At least it was only like 3 in some sale :/

Fun Shoe

Kind of a niche problem but I installed Deep Rock Galactic on PC GamePass and played a couple hours and then installed on the XBox and my account auto moved over, which is cool. But whenever I pull up the server browser it tells me I am not allowed to join multiplayer for REASON UNKNOWN or something like that.

I can see servers and people playing so it seems like the restriction they put in before you do the tutorial. So I ran a solo mission but nothing changed. Has something like this happened to anyone else?

is that the one where you can have the main characters from Steven Universe and Adventure Time fight Hellboy and also Ben 10 and also Rayman and also a bunch of Shovel Knight characters and also Lara Croft and also a bunch of Walking Dead characters and also a bunch of people from WWE including the Rock, John Cena, and Macho Man Randy Savage?

Cool, thanks, should hold me over. Started earlier and some dumb fire breathing trex kept picking and losing fights to my hunting horn. But then they'd burrow before I could finish them. After the first time, I was finishing my research bounties and the thing beelined straight for me and got whooped again, then slunk off into a hole. Felt like I was getting trolled wasting my time like that.

Anybody play the Outriders demo? I put about an hour into it before bed, and Im feeling pretty positive about it. The world building seems interesting, and Im one of those freaks that loves the division. Definitely going to play some more tomorrow.

I thought it was just okay. Combat was fun enough once you finally got into it but all the cutscenes and storytelling were wack. It seems like one of those games that's destined to end up on Gamepass within a year.

I thought it was interesting that in a press release they emphasised 'this is not a live service game and you can complete it' - like that's more or less the verbatim quote. It me far more interested because the idea of having to start a whole Destiny sized Sisyphus box really puts me off.

How do I get the demo? In the store I could only see an option to buy the full game.
Edit: NVM, figured it out.

I didn't like Outriders at first (intro takes too long) but once I got into the combat and got better gear it was fun. I maxed all the characters in the demo and will buy it in April

There is no gears of war in the game. Cover is only there to sucker you into death.

at least playing Trickster feels more like ME's Vanguard, moving around and managing cooldowns rather than shooting. once you start working around your melee having a longer timer it plays real smooth

it also feels like a 2007 game with more polygons. not even "better graphics", just more polygons

Theyre also oddly blurry? Like the foliage and poo poo looks like vaseline is smeared on my monitor. I just built a new pc and have pretty modern stuff, everything is maxed on ultra or whatever it can go to @ 2k 144hz.

In any case the first hour of the demo presents itself as a completely different game, then suddenly it's gears meets division meets destiny but taking cover is bad. I had the fortune of choosing the trickster which is apparently the best class. Always go for movement based abilities!

If they cut a bunch of the voice acting and horseshit cutscenes they could have targeted a $40 price point and done incredibly well. It feels like a hard sell @ $60 to me but to be fair I haven't played with friends yet.

IRONKNUCKLE PERMBANNED! READ HERE


Are XBox servers just chronically slow or am I missing something here?

I have gigabit fios into my house, I can get screaming fast downloads on pretty much any service, and other devices on my network ping the internet in the teens in terms of latency. I recently got an SX, and prior to that had an Xbone, it seems like no matter what I do my store downloads always crawl at like 30-40mb/s. Ive tried different network cables, DNS settings, etc. The speed test utility in settings reports back slow speeds as well. Usually my in game latency is fine, but the speed test says 175ms.

This has been going on for months, I have never had a fast download from the store. I really cant figure out what is going on. I do sysadmin/telecom work by trade so I have ruled out all the common problems. Really starting to piss me off.
