This is a cross post, because I'm wondering if this applies to Xbone yet (and hoping that it will).  Otherwise, it seems a little late in the game, but it's better than nothing.


Phil Spencer: Games with Gold will feel 'more true' to what consumers want in the future

Here's one insteresting tidbit that never occurred to me:

Quote
"One of our issues with Games with Gold ó not 'issues,' but differences between the other system we get compared to, is the fact that with Games with Gold, you get to keep that game, regardless of whether you continue to subscribe," Spencer said. "And the business around Games with Gold, for us, is just fundamentally different from some of the other programs that are out there, which does put a different financial picture on a ó you're gonna go buy a game that's brand new, the cost of putting that in, just to be kind of blunt about it."

OTOH, while I'm sure it would be a challenge to change the infrastructure to such a degree, I'm not sure why they don't make it so that this is not an issue with GwG.

Still, good to hear that better options will be coming.  Is GwG on Xbone yet?  


Not yet, I suspect the library needs to get bigger

Detailed look:

Diablo III is fun again [allegedly]
http://gamerhorizon.com/diablo-iii-fun-first-time/

Me? I still have to decide if I want to share an image of my passport or driver's license with a Blizzard tech support flunky so they'll remove my messed up (or hacked) authenticator from my account. In spite of my explanations, answering my secret question, resetting my password repeatedly and receiving Blizzard emails to my account, they still don't believe I'm me. I was going to offer to swab some of my saliva and other DNA to prove it.  saywhat icon_razz

Btw, I had to have my authenticator removed and emailed a picture of my ID to the tech support.   Felt weird, but she promptly removed it once she got the picture

I meant some time in the past.  I thought Respawn had said they were against the season pass model.
Everything I read they stated no Online pass.. that seems to be the confusion

Didn't Respawn say there'd be no season pass?  Or was that just one of those vague "we have no plans to share at this time" things?

Quote from: Polygon
Zampella adds that Titanfall will include both paid-for and free DLC, alongside an upcoming season pass model

I'm sure EA has something to say about the DLC and Season Pass

Any my review (with video) is live.

The video shows the (shockingly) only bug I found in the game, as well as some spoiler-free gameplay.   It's awesome - go get it. 

I only read one negative review and that was Kotaku due to the bugs.  Guy loved the premise of the game, but he suffered from some serious framerate issues on the 360 among other bugs he noted

96  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Meet Xena - My Lhasa Apso on: February 27, 2014, 05:03:32 PM
On Feb. 6th I brought this Lhasa Apso after an almost two year search to rescue a dog from various shelters.  My preference has always been a small dog under 30 pounds and a little older, but for anyone that has tried to rescue Iím sure your aware that small dogs are typically the first ones to go.  After two years of frustration I decided to go to a pet store and purchase the dog I wanted.   I didnít want a puppy, but ultimately I saw Xena at the store and feel in love.  Visited the shop on a Sunday and by that Thursday I owned her.  So the decision wasnít made lightly.  Now saying that I thought I was prepared for a puppy, but I was sadly mistaken.   My sister had to talk my down from the ledge as I was close to returning her cause I didnít think I could care for her as she needed.  

My goal is to crate train her and sheís taken to the crate as her space, but as I have to work I didnítí want to crate her while I was working, but Xena is an escape artist.  Iíve watched her scale gates and for a small dog she can jumps incredibly high.  I would leave her gated in my kitchen and come home to find her rushing to me as I opened the door.  I brought a play pen with a covered top and she figured out how to escape.  She actually found a weak spot in the tie down for the covered top and squeezed her way out.

So the reason for the post Iíve taken to leaving her crated while Iím at work with one of the those water bottles, but I feel bad leaving her crated while Iím at work.  She drinks from the bottle fine and at 6 months she is holding her bladder adequately, but I still feel bad.  Iíve look into a dog sitter, but donít like the idea of a stranger being in my apartment and living in the city I no longer have a car, so dropping her off at the dog day care is out of the question.

Looking for suggestions cause I want whatís best for her, but I donítí want to give her up.

I watched it up to the point where the detective visit Bates Motel and I'm pretty much 'meh' about the reinterpretation.  Hitchcock's movie is a classic for a reason that the 98 remake never had

101  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Steven Soderbergh - Psychos on: February 26, 2014, 05:00:24 PM
Quote from: The Verge
On his website, Extension 765, Soderbergh has combined Alfred Hitchcock's and Gus Van Sant's versions of Psycho into a single film, which he's titled Psychos. Van Sant's 1998 remake has largely been converted into black-and-white, and since it covers Hitchcock's film nearly shot-for-shot, Soderbergh is able to quite seamlessly cut between the two films to create one that's just a bit different from moment to moment

While it may not have been unexpected, the PS4 did tremendously well at the Japanese launch.

Hence the reason they were in no rush for the home market which is a very smart move by Sony.  Their strategy is paying off

My Xbone has decided to no longer recognize "YES" or "NO" when I say "Xbox Turn Off." It hears that command just fine, then just sits there and decides not to listen to any further input. Aggravating. I guess I'll try to unplug it and plug it back in tonight and see if that fixes it.

On the bright side, my wife and I have been having a blast with Xbox Fitness. We were doing some silly dance exercise routine the other night with the kids and not only were we sweating our butts off we were laughing them off as well.

doing a hard reboot solves this issue.   Btw, i've started doing a hard reboot of my XB1 on the weekends and this seems to help alot. also, no reason to unplug just hold the power button for 10 secs for a hard reboot

you do the campaign first in any game though, I was teasing you.  We usually have a couple weeks of having a blast in multiplayer while we watch Soul on the friend's list playing by himself.

Should have figured.  Btw, Hark I got my mumble issues fixed so I should be good for Marvel Heroes.  Had to run out yesterday and couldn't jump back into the game.   Anyway, should have some time for playing this evening

Titanfall genre innovation #7 - voice prompts that are actually useful!

In CoD or Battlefield, the only useful voice prompts I can think of are:
"Point Alpha/Beta/Charlie is being taken!"
and
"You/They have all the points!"

In Titanfall, in addition to the above, you get things like:
"You captured the point, but there are still enemies in the area"
"Your Titan is engaging an enemy pilot/Titan"
(when in a Titan) "You are under attack by an enemy pilot/Titan"
(when in a Titan) "You are outnumbered!"

It seems like such a simple simple thing, but it's such a refreshing change to have the voiceovers actually be welcome and useful instead of something you almost entirely ignore.

More

In hardpoint used burn card that gave extra points for pilot kills

"Hey we're here for the hardpoints not pad you kill count"

Camping on a hill sniping

"What are you doing?  Get into the fight. Hardpoints not pilot kills is the objective"


Rodeo a  enemy titan

"Smooth moves, now bring it down"

Fighting two titans

"You're outnumbered two to one.  Best to evade"
