Might as well get it started. Who's looking forward to it? I personally think that it could beat PS5, that is if they don't screw up. They need a basic UI, more first party titles, and focus only on gaming. They own the license to Rare games, we need to see new Conkers, Perfect Dark, Banjo Kazooie, etc. They did alright with Killer Instinct, I'll give them that, but they're sitting on a lot of games that needs remade, remastered, and sequels.
As far as I know, it's slightly more powerful than the PS5, which isn't a big deal. But what is a big deal is that it will come with more storage. XBSX will have 1TB, which I admit, is not much by today's standards. The PS5 will have 825GB, which is ridiculous. I'm guessing that the next gen games will be around 100gb or more in size on average. If that is the case, I expect the discs will be on 4k UHD blu-rays.

I will call tomorrow, maybe there is a setting I could tweak.

So I had this game with a crazy amount of GS tied to it but man there are a few things I really enjoy about it is the shooter/tower defense aspect of it. Also the boss music is pretty damn good. I have a number of achievements left to get but I am not rushing it... This is exactly the type of game I was looking for.

Though it did ask for permissions before I played it Wich was kinda wied ...

Pixel Guardian? Yeah. It's fun but I am a sucker for tower defense and this is a neat take on it. Wish it had more variety.

I played a bit of Saints Row the Third Remastered but remembered far too much of it so I wasn't really enjoying it. Decided to give Crackdown 3 another go...and I'm having a blast. I remember even more of this game but am having a lot of fun jumping around and doing the repetitive missions. The orb collecting is addictive.

I don't see a topic for Xbox one anymore so I'll post it here. I ended up buying cyberpunk for $10. I have an Xbox One X. Anyone know if it's stable enough to play now or do I need to wait for more patches?

Return it. It's a below-average game. Or just wait for the real net gen upgrade that might get released at some point.

they are working on a next gen upgrade that hopefully will help. the game ran great on pc, so if they can get a next gen upgrade out to get it to that level it should be fine.

I played Cyberpunk on X1X many months ago and it was stable then and played mostly ok. The game itself has design issues that I couldn't overlook though, so I had more issues with the game design than the bugs. It's a clumsy game but should play mostly fine on X1X at this point.

xCloud coming to X1 consoles to bring future gen compatability to last gen consoles. So you'll be able to play XSX games on an X1 in the future, if they're on Game Pass and cloud enabled. While it's cloud based, which means you'll need a strong internet connection to play, it's a great option for people that can't/don't want to drop $500 on a new system.

It is a game I definitely want to play, but I am waiting for the true next GEN version. I'll be patient.

All I know is I definitely want to upgrade to series X win halo infinite and Forza horizon five come out. At least I have the limited addition cyberpunk 1X so that should make it a bit cheaper to upgrade.

That's kind of cool, but I still worry about latency and the resolution/compression. Anyone who's played stadia (and is honest about it) can tell you it's better to have it on console. Xcloud is OK but it's not like playing on a series X.

But it you're really short on cash and the game is only on series X, it's not a horrible alternative. Pretty cool of MS to do that.

Monster Hunter: World, Outer Wilds, Soulcalibur VI, Battle Chasers: Nightwar, Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite and The Messenger all leaving GP soon. So if you've been putting them off now is the time to play them. These will all likely leave on the 30th.

I have an issue with Outer Wilds. I got it for free from the E3 thing Microsoft did a few years ago, and it showed in my ready to download list. But at some point it wasn't there anymore and now says I can download it with gamepass. Also when I boot the game, the gamepass icon shows on the bottom right, so it's not showing as me owning it anymore.. anyone else experience this, and what should I do to make sure I don't lose access to it when it leaves gamepass

I don't own that game. But I get this with other games I own that are on gamepass. If I play them they show the GP icon when it boots up. And I get credit towards the GP daily and weekly rewards things. But, they all show in my owned/ready to download when not installed. So I'm not sure. Maybe that was a timed deal from E3?

Agree with Archer, I owned Batman AK before getting GP and am pretty sure when I load it up the GP logo appears and I'd get that credit for playing a GP that day.

That said, some of those leaving might adjust my priorities...

Well u always get the gamepass points, whether to own the game or not. But my issue is that it's no longer in my ready to install list. And no, it wasn't a timed thing. It was supposed to be permanent. I would hate to have to call Xbox to get it straightened out. I will just have to wait and see what happens when they remove the game from gp

I started it on Wednesday night and played for about an hour. It seemed pretty fun. I think it's a game I could get into. However when I booted it up to play yesterday i had to download a 30GB patch (version 1.23). I read online that they are planning another big patch (1.3) so I guess I will just hold off on playing for now. Seems like there must still be a lot of bugs that need addressed with patches this large still being released. Good to see they are still supporting the game though.

Sounds like EA might be bringing Dead Space back. They will be announcing a new game in an existing IP at the next EA Play, next month. They didn't say which IP the game was in. But everyone seems to think its Dead Space. A new Dead Space trilogy would be cool.

Dead Space is probably one of their few good IPs but since it wasn't multiplayer and exploitable with macro transactions, it was killed.

I only ever played to completion DS3 co-op with a friend on PC. It seemed to be rather different vs. the first ~15-20 mins of DS1 that I played a long while back. I.e. DS3 and co-op removed a bunch of the 'horror' aspects. I want to try out DS1/2, simply haven't found time.

Dead Space 1 and 2 were phenomenal. I never finished Dead Space 3 cause it didn't grasp me the way the first 2 games did. If not a 4th entry, I'd take a remastered trilogy collection similar to what we got with the Mass Effect LE Trilogy.

The Dead Space trilogy was great. People seem to crap on Dead Space 3 for it being co-op, but my friend and I really enjoyed it. One of my favorite moments of DS3 was when my friend and I were split up in the game and I think her character was hallucinating or something and she was seeing all weird things that I couldn't see, so she's describing it to me as we're playing. Pretty damn cool. It might have been the weakest of the trilogy but by no means was it a bad game. If they were to remaster just the old games to test the waters and see how they sell, I'd hope they do all three games and not just the first two.

Yeah when I played co-op I was Isaac and was seeing the hallucinations and it was pretty freaky, especially when my buddy wasn't. After we realized that, I started to describe them better to him. They were cool.
DS3 certainly seems to have taken a bit of a different vibe, surely driven by EA's love of $$ so some of that complaint I feel is merited. But I wouldn't call it a bad game, just was clearly approached and targeted at a different set of gamers, via a different overall style.

If y'all like the hallucinations aspect, Gears 5 co-op might be up your alley. I've been playing this via online co-op with a couple people and Kait has several of these that the other players don't see. We tend to rotate characters each time we jump back on to play, mainly so everyone gets to have fun playing as Jack.

I forgot about the hallucinations in Gears 5, surely because I played as J.D. and therefore didn't see them. I should really replay that sometime soon.

How good is the Xbox series S? I've been in the PS4 world for years and haven't kept up with Xbox stuff, but would like to catch on several Xbox one exclusives. I don't mind an all digital console as long as it's good to go hardware/bug wise.

The GPU is really gimped, so if you're on a 1080p screen it's a pretty good device. If you're on anything better it's just not as good if you care about graphics. It also plays all the Xbox One games that had a 4K patch later as the old One S version, meaning no 4K etc. For the extra $200 you get 3X the GPU power, so I always recommend the X but if you just want to get in on some exclusives and have a 1080p screen then the S is not bad
