Ah yes, it was actually the same for me. I first clicked the link on my phone, told the store I wanted to stay on the Korean store, logged in and then clicked on 'receive'. But that didn't do anything, I had to do the same on my pc and then I also had to choose 'install to device' or something like that.

I CAN'T SEE SHIT.












xbox one is the best


I wonder if MLB day one gamepass came as a shock to Sony? Says itís published by MLB themselves for the Xbox platforms, so maybe they didnít have foresight.

Thereís quite a gulf in value when you could pay $70 for mlb, or alternatively you could buy a year of Xbox live and upgrade it all to Game pass ultimate and still have change. I guess the only downside would be if MLB only stays on gamepass for 3 months, but then you have the three hundred+ other games to play as well.

In Phil we trust.

Without letting your current sub expire, the current EA Play 12-month subscription converts to 4 months of GPU which is essentially half off the normal price.

Seconding MS rewards. I changed my search engine to bing and do a moderate amount of game pass challenges. Doing just that probably saves me 50% on GPU (or would if I wasnít paid up until 2022).

I actually really like the game pass challenges, they motivate me to try new stuff

Finished Prey the other night. Very glad I waited to play on Series X with the FPS boost. It looked and played fantastic, I definitely woulda stopped playing if I tried this on my one. It's a 9/10 for me (I don't give out big scores easily) and might even end up being my game of the year. It does so much right it's almost hard to believe. One small gripe + big spoiler - I just kinda wished your choice at the end was the actual outcome instead of it being a set up for the personality check portion in the twist ending. It would've made the game feel more complete, but I get it as the real ending leaves the door open for Prey 2.

I will gladly shell out for the DLC and start playing it this week.

Oh and if you're looking to buy the Mooncrash DLC like me, buy the digital deluxe edition of the game instead. I clicked on the DLC in the store and its 17 bucks, then I luckily clicked on check other versions and the digital deluxe (base game, mooncrash dlc, and typhon hunter DLC) is $13. It's on a big sale for the next 10 days.

Titanfall 3 was trending on Twitter but it's just a bunch of people really bummed out that the next season of Apex Legends will apparently cater to Titanfall fans a lot somehow rather than the IP getting a much-needed and deserved sequel.

What the hell Respawn

After giving them the funding to complete development and release the original Titanfall when Respawn was in trouble, MS really should have bought them to save them from EA fuckery with being told to make Star Wars games Remember Vince Zampella was very vocal about being pissed they were screwed by EA with Titanfall 2 (they thought they were just going up against COD and releasing a week beforehand until EA suddenly announced a new Battlefield launching before them after they committed to the launch date) and the whole reason he and the original Infinity Ward team joined Activision in the first place and made COD was to get away from EA, and then they go right back to them and act surprised when they're screwed again.

Gonna be weird as heck if they try to add titans to Apex Legends, they should really just make Titanfall 3.

The titanfall 2 devs OKd the release date

SUNKOS
Jun 4, 2016



Yeah, that's what my post says. You missed the part about EA keeping Battlefield and it's launch date secret from them so Titanfall 2 was no longer competing solely against COD (and launching a week earlier) but was instead stuck between that and a Battlefield game they didn't know was coming until long after they'd agreed to the Titanfall 2 launch date?

Was a really lovely thing for EA to do.

There's an interview with Zampella somewhere (I forget who did it now - maybe Eurogamer?) where he was asked about the launch timing and he explained as such, and when asked if there was a future for the Titanfall franchise the EA spokesman stepped in and said something about being committed to the IP and Zampella chimed in with "Whatever the gently caress that means" and seemed rightfully pissed.

EA shoulda got Respawn to make a Star Wars FPS game like get them do to the single player for Battlefront or make a new Republic Commando. Instead they crank out a buggy Souls ripoff. Disaster.

SUNKOS

I wish EA wasn't forcing the Star Wars IP on their developers.

Need for Speed sucks and has for a long time. Criterion (or what's left of it) has been there and just used to support Star Wars games when they could have revived the Burnout IP. Now apparently they're tasked with taking over the Need for Speed IP and EA should really just let these studios work on the IPs that they're known for. They've bought Codemasters and will probably have them make a Star Wars RPG or something rather than keep doing what they're good at, sucks that Take Two couldn't finalize the acquisition before EA swooped in.

As much as I agree with the logic, I'm glad they didn't pigeon hole them into one thing. Let devs do what the gently caress they want. Respawn has more than earned the right. Just means now they can learn and work from the new experience instead of just staying in their lane.

This is why I don't think teams were forced at EA to do star wars, they probably begged for the chance. Did EA give them the proper support should be the question.

Yeah one of those jason schrier articles talks about how every studio pitched multiple sw games when the license deal was signed. Ea just wanted to funnel all the fans into battlefront and do stock buy backs with any money that could have made new games

Jedi Fallen Order was a massive seller, it's led to EA going 'huh maybe our dev teams can just focus on making good single player games without shoehorned in multiplayer and other garbage'. Respawn have like carte blanche.

For a complete list of Series X optimised games you can go here: https://www.trueachievements.com/optimized-for-series-x/games

Alternatively you can make an account on TrueAchievements and use the Game Collection section to see the games you own (if you enter that you have Game Pass it'll populate with all Game Pass/EA Play games). Then you can fiddle with the filter options and save them. I have ones that say how long each game takes to complete, it's site rating /5 and a bunch of other stats.

Edit: found they have a direct link.

Not sure how to troubleshoot this but ever since I got my Series S on launch day, the screen will randomly flicker to black for about a second, a few times over a 1-2min period upon returning from standby. This seems to happen with HDR games and doesnít happen after the first couple mins that the console has been on. Also seems to only happen when Instant On is enabled. Iím not sure if thereís a setting somewhere that is messing something up but it sure is annoying. Doesnít happen with HDR games on my PS4 and havenít had any other issues with the TV itself (Samsung KS8000). Has anyone else experienced this?

My Samsung would do something similar with my PS4 Pro. Itíd go to black usually within the first few minutes of firing up the console and then never happen again for that play session. Havenít seen it on the series X or PS5 but it seemed to be a Samsung thing from what I remember googling at the time.

Xbox consoles in my experience can hang up going from HDR and back, especially if you donít give them time to process the transition or whatever. Ive had it happen with Netflix more than with games, and even then itís pretty rare with the Series X and One X. The only thing I can suggest is a hard reset when it happens.
