Less than $200 is what they're going for, I've heard its supposed to be less than the $199.99 console. And the issue I see here is we have one person saying it needs to be less than $199.99 then another one saying it needs to have a min. of 3tb. I don't think we can have both of those options, we pretty get one, and the one MS seems have to chosen to go with is cheaper console which is I think is the correct decision since USB storage is ridiculously cheap, far cheaper than if MS added in more store out of the box. If they put 3-5tb in then we would probably be looking at it hitting $250 or $300 and then people would complain that its too expensive and aren't interested.

I hope so, we have 4 xb1's and only being able to use 2 at a time can be a bother, I have plenty of other stuff I can play while they're on their Xboxes, but setting one kids as the home and then the other kid having me signed on in addition to himself so he can play means if I sign in he gets knocked off, and since "mine" isn't the home xbox I cant play offline, so it would be nice if they could work that out.

Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway ow BC on XB1. I may have to pick this up and replay it. It was one of my favorite tactical WW2 shooter of last gen.

On the PC side of it, Control is going to be an Epic store exclusive for 1 year, lol. Looks like PC has to worry about this timed exclusive garbage now. Epic is also getting all those Quantic Dream's PS4 games too.

I cannot fault them because Steam has turned into a pile of dookie lately, my PC friend was telling me. Plus, I watch Jim Sterling pretty avidly and he posts numerous videos bashing Steam for not having a good filtering system of trolling user created content and having a bad algorithm feature for sorting games. Meaning a game like Control, which may be considered close to premium quality will refresh on the Steam store next to a game like Rape Day lol it just makes no sense and will turn off buyers thinking their game is associated with smut. I guess it's not the PC store it once was and the new kids on the block, Epic, are reaping in the benefits of Steam's flaws and screw ups.

That's what happens when one company gets to run around relatively unchecked for so long; they get lazy and complacent. That why when I see people wanting a console manufacturer to exit the market so they can have it all to themselves I question if they know how horrible it would be if any of the "Big 3" got to run the show. It would be a disaster.

It's the same on the Switch eShop. Now when I buy something that could be considered a hidden gem I try to spread the word about it on as many forums as I can before it gets further buried among the crap Nintendo allows to infest the eShop.

I'm staying loyal to Steam either way. I downloaded the Epic Games client, but it's just like EA Origin and uPlay where I'll only boot it up when they're giving away a free game. Steam is the only one I'll spend money on, just because I want my library that I actually care about to all be in one place. It could change in the future but for now Steam has done me no wrong.

That's why it's always important to have healthy competition in the market. It not only keeps things interesting, but maintains a balance.

Ya, Switch is a bit hard to navigate too. I thought it was just me being picky, though. Glad to see it's not just me. They should organize it better now before they get too much bigger like Steam has.

Sekiro is getting really good reviews but the digital foundry video seemed to be saying that it runs terrible on the base consoles, like 15fps territory. They also only got the show the first 2 hours of the game, so that may be part of the issue, but then again, From Soft has never been at making their games run smoothly. Kind of disappointing because for people with the OG X1.

It's unfortunate to think after so many Souls games and Bloodborne, they still can't seem to get their engine to work optimally on consoles. I'm sure it will be running just fine on high end PC's.

Yeah, really weird why FS can't seem to figure out how to make their games run well. You would think that at this point they would hire people who know to do this kind of stuff better than whoever they have doing it now. Frame rate is kind of important with these types of games.

Looks like it was MS who wanted, and pushed for, Cuphead to go the Switch:

"Oh yeah I was talking to one of the Cuphead devs yesterday and he said that it was Microsoft actually approached them and asked if they'd like to make a Switch version. Crazy stuff."

Yeah, glad to see that MS is support these little devs who have so much talent and put this level of dedication into their games. Putting this game on the Switch is a good move too because that thing is an indie powerhouse so this game should be right at home.

Via Gamepass:

Not sure how but I got hooked on Kingdom New Lands, looked up and it was late late no real chance to turn it around but the Kingdom stood as I went to bed. Looking forward to playing again in a few.

Microsoft is going to start something called "ID@Xbox Game Pass" where they showcase indie games coming to Game Pass. I think its a great opportunity for some of those smaller games to get some exposure when they may have otherwise just gotten lost in the XBL store. I think this is what that Damon Baker guy (who MS just hired away from Nintendo, he was responsible for all the "Nindie" stuff) has been up to. The first show is this next Tuesday at 9amPST.

Nice. And damn I just bought Battlefront 2 also. I should refrain on buying anymore OG Xbox games on XB1, especially SW games, since they're starting to give them away like candy apparently.

Technomancer was meh. I played some of it a while back because I mistook it for another game and it was okay. I didn't get too far though because I wasn't looking for a deep 3rd person RPG at the time. Never played Outcast either, not even sure what it is. GRAW2 was legit though, I used to play the hell out of that game back in the day.

Ya, it seems the older stuff is better than the newer stuff they're giving away and the past like 3 months they've been giving away Star Wars games. I hope May's GWG is KOTOR II. That's really the only SW game left on OG Xbox that I have yet to rebuy.

GameTZ Subscriber Double Gold Good Trader Global Trader - willing to trade internationally
26-Mar-2019(#65)
Yeah, the good thing about the OG Xbox games for people who don't like them being added, is that there isn't too many of them left to add, and the ones that are left are like Panzer Dragoon Orta, Ninja Gaiden, KoToR 2, and Black. After that they either need to add more BC games to the catalog or go back to two X1 games and 2 X360 games.
TalonJedi87
Double Gold Good Trader Has Written 4 Reviews
26-Mar-2019(#66)
I think out of all the major X360 games left there's only very few major ones they haven't added I think. I am still hanging onto hope that one day these games will be BC, since they are all that remain in my collection that have not gone BC to date:

Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena
Condemned 2: Bloodshot
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
Max Payne 3
Mortal Kombat 9
Ninja Gaiden 3
Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands
X-Men Origins: Woverine

I would imagine the only really challenging game to add to their library might be X-Men because of licensing issues, but the rest, especially Enslaved since MS owns Ninja Theory now, is possible.

One game I want added is Asura's Wrath. If you haven't played it then check it out. Its an insanely over the top 3rd person beat em' up with rail shooter levels mixed in for good measure:

Oh yes, I've heard about that game. Looks sick. Never got to play it back then. Capcom published it so maybe there's a chance for it to pop up one day on BC.

Its really fun. I bought it on a whim and played through it probably 5 times. Its short, just about 4-5 hours which makes replays much more appealing. This game reminded me a lot of Capcom in their prime when they had Clover Studios making crazy Japanese games before they shut that studio down.

I miss those Clover Studios days for sure. And didn't Sega publish both Condemned games? And isn't the first Condemned BC? Weird to me that part 2 isn't to this day.

Yeah, they're telling people to bug MS about it and hopefully their publisher (Sega) and MS can work together to make it happen.

I thought Condemned 2 was nowhere near as good as the first one. Do publishers/devs get some kind of bonus if MS decides to get their game on the BC list?

Nope, they just get their games more potential sales since it will now appear on X1's store and what not. When RDR became BC their sales went up 6000% and one of the CoD games saw similar increases.

ive still got about 8 or 10 360 games id love to see added so i can not have just this small shelf of 360 since they aren't bc or available on digital. but they are much more niche and i don't think they'll ever worry about stuff like magna carta 2, operation darkness, spectral force 3, N3 and N3-2, infinite undiscovery and stuff like that

I was going to buy technomancer as it was on gamepass and disappeared plus it is relatively but now I don't have to. Game looked like it could be fun in a janky budget title way. I was thinking it was outlast 2 for a second and was wondering why people were not hyped for it, now I know why, it looks like a buggy mess of disappointment.

It is a bit janky with weird save point but it had moments where it was pretty good. Seemed to have lots of strategy involved or the fights would get difficult if you went about them the wrong way.

Finally started up Crackdown 3 and I'm having a lot of fun with it. There are definitely weird issues with the game like really bad enemy AI and floaty controls, but I really needed a game right now that allowed me to just turn my brain off and have some stupid fun for a while after playing 2 loooooong pretty boring grindy games back to back. Collecting orbs is actually pretty fun too since you use those to get better agility abilities.
