Surge came out today. so far not bad. very nioh and bloodborn feel as in fast combat. switching limbs takes some getting used to.
Phantom Dust remaster is supposed to be out today for free.
injustice came out today as well. grabbed that on my ps4 though,

here is review summary from them
Cuphead ultimately leaves me at an impasse. I absolutely love the style of the game, and when the game works well it's a truly rewarding experience that overcomes the seemingly impossible difficulty. Every time I beat a boss I felt re-energized, ready to tackle the next (and there are quite a few of them). But randomness and all too frequent bugs are rotten apples that spoil what could be a damn near perfect barrel of fruit.
sounds like bugs ruined it for them and that the hard bosses were re-energizing. maybe the difficulty spiked randomly?

Yeah, I'm waiting for online co-op to get added in. I will get this on Steam and probably gift an extra copy to my friend when that happens.

Which is complete BS. I played about 10 levels so far today and no bugs at all, zero, and no difficulty spikes. Bosses have multiple forms the further you damage them but their patters are all easy to figure it and work around. I beat the first boss I played without getting hit once. The reviewer sucked at the game, couldnt get better and blamed the game. That's a bad reviewer.

don't get me wrong I love me some yen too, easily the hardest choice in a game ive ever made, but something resonated with me about triss. id just gotten out of a really negative relationship with an absolutely heartless girl, and the way she treated geralt so lovingly was really great. only later do you realize though yennefer can seem cold to him its still out of love but the way the game is structured you can experience the crisis point in the Triss line before even going to skellige, that could be the one flaw I could find it in its holiness's design. I know shes different in the books and what she did to him in the earlier games was wrong not telling him about yen. but geralt isn't perfect and neither is yen, no one in the witcher world is, probably why they seem so "alive" and real. I did love how they made either option work very fluidly and organically in the game, and it would have been sweet to have the jade empire option...but at the same time would have had far less impact.
I thought all games would automatically receive some kind of benefit and then of course developers could do even more with a patch

I'm guessing they're probably still talking to Sega because that entire list contains no Sega games. I would love to see Gun Valkyrie, JSRF, and Panzer Dragoon Orta.

They look great. There is a significant difference in image quality between OG and BC to the point to where these looks like re-released games.
KOTOR is all I ever wanted or needed as a BC OG Xbox game. Now the circle is complete.

sick. love me some pirates
Oh man, if they add KOTOR 2 and Jade Empire I would have my OG Xbox trifecta and may never leave my house haha.
Good to hear KOTOR has improved because on the 360 it had some serious frame rate and even audio issues. It was so bad on the 360 I couldn't enjoy it enough to continue playing it and it's one of my favorite games of all time.
> Kinect is dead. Officially this time. Finally.
its about time they let it die in peace. go little Kinect, be free.
we have had the 360 for a long time, the kids mess with it once in a blue moon but we really don't have the space. I think that may have been a detractor for others as well, moving furniture, clearing space just to play a game that only kinda worked.
I adored Crimson Skies. Can't wait to replay it
I can see Cortana still being integrated with some kind of Alexa or Google Home type device, but I think Kinect is done. They tried it on the 360 with lukewarm results only to force it initially on the One with "No, you just weren't using it right" type persistence. Now, I think they know it isn't happening.
