    Is 2021 a dud for gaming?

    Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite saved 2021 for me.

    Xbox series X

    I've had a lot of fun with Halo Infinite. I finished the campaign and have done a little multiplayer. I don't know if you're into racing, but I'd recommend checking out Forza Horizon 5. I'm also playing some of the Gears of War games, Microsoft Flight Simulator, and Minecraft Dungeons. It's...

    Splinter Cell Remake

    This is really cool news. I just hope they don't screw it up. I really enjoyed the first 3 or so games, but the next three got progressively worse, IMO.

    Xbox series X

    I was finally able to get a Series X two weeks ago! I woke up and just decided to go on Target's website and do a search. To my surprise the closest store to me had 4 in stock, so I immediately purchased one. Right now I've mainly been playing Flight Simulator, but I have several games on my...

    macOS Catalina

    I haven't had any issues on my 2020 13" MBP, but I've only had it a couple weeks, and really haven't done a lot of stuff on it yet. I haven't setup Time Machine yet, but I'm hoping I don't run into any issues when I do.

    Forza Horizon 4 - A beautiful game

    I still have to complete Forza Horizon 3, so I may hold off on getting this until Christmas, but the game looks awesome.

    2 Xbox Ones in 1 house. Do we need to buy 2 of each game to play co-op/multiplayer?

    Yes, you'll need to buy two copies. If you're buying physical discs, even though the game is completely installed to the hard drive, you need to have the disc in the system to play it. With digital downloads the game is tied to your system and gamertag. You're going to be playing under two...

    XBOX ONE X folks, check in here!

    I've been wanting to play through all the Halo games again, but have been waiting for the MCC Xbox One X enhancement update. Can't wait for September!

    NES Classic (2018) does not seem to have a preorder. Acquisition Suggestions?

    Yeah, the NES has only ever included one controller. Fortunately, I think the official Nintendo NES controllers are $9.99, which isn't a bad price, IMO.

    NES Classic (2018) does not seem to have a preorder. Acquisition Suggestions?

    I figured the new run of NES Classics would still come with one controller, as opposed to the SNES's two included controllers, but I was hoping they would have listened to the complaints and increased the length of the controller cords this time around. Guess I'll be buying a couple extensions.

    I was able to order one online, and have already gotten the shipping confirmation!

    So now that E3 is over, what is your most anticipated game?

    My most anticipated game would have to be Forza Horizon 4, simply because it's coming out soon, and looks even better than the third. However, other E3 games that I'm really anticipating (and some may not even be coming out next year) include: Anthem Control Crackdown 3 Gears 5 Ghost of...

    What game do you think should get a sequel or a remake?

    If I could only name one it'd be: Skies of Arcadia. A sequel would be fantastic, but I'd take an HD remake at this point too. After that I have a few other suggestions: Ghost Recon Call me crazy, but I want to see a Ghost Recon like the ones they had in the early 2000's, where you didn't even...

    Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown

    It wouldn't be an Ace Combat game if it didn't have cringe-worthy dialogue.

    Microsoft's E3 Press Conference

    I'll be curious to see if they really go back to the original Halo games, and do away with all the extra hud stuff that has been in the last several Halo games... like the visor outline over the screen and stuff. I eventually get use to it, and it ends up not being a huge deal, but when I...

    XBOX ONE X folks, check in here!

    I'll be curious to see what the resolution will be set to, if you change to the 60 FPS mode. I wouldn't be surprised if it was locked at 1080p, but maybe it'll be slightly higher (like 1400p), or perhaps they'll implement a dynamic resolution. EDIT: Seeing how good this game looks, and that...

    XBOX ONE X folks, check in here!

    Nice! Native 4K @ 30 FPS is pretty sweet, given how this game looks, but yeah, hopefully there is a high frame-rate mode for those who want it.

    Ghost of Tsushima

    This and Spider-Man were the two games I'm most interested in, from the Sony press conference. It looks amazing.

    NES Classic (2018) does not seem to have a preorder. Acquisition Suggestions?

    If you have a Twitter account follow Walmart, Target, GameStop, etc., because they would sometimes announce when they would have the NES Classic (and SNES Classic) available to order online. I also think at some point you'll just be able to find them on store shelves. I couldn't find an SNES...

    Microsoft's E3 Press Conference

    According to 343 Industries it's a continuation after the events of Halo 5, but it sounds like they've listened to the fans who have been growing tired of switching between characters: "The team also heard feedback loud and clear on the amount of time spent playing as the Master Chief in Halo...

    Microsoft's E3 Press Conference

    Yeah... fortunately Horizon 4, the Sea of Thieves expansions, and a couple upcoming 3rd party titles, will keep me plenty busy until February, when things kick off with the release of Crackdown 3... assuming it doesn't get delayed again, of course. :) Oh, and I think the X Enhanced update for...

    Microsoft's E3 Press Conference

    I forgot to mention Microsoft announced some really cool Game Pass news. Fallout 4 became available today, along with The Division, and The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be available later this year, and Forza Horizon 4, Crackdown 3, Ashen...

    Microsoft's E3 Press Conference

    Overall I thought Microsoft had a really good show. Some things we sort of knew, and other things came as a complete surprise. Microsoft announced 5 new developers being added to the Microsoft Game Studios fold, including Playground Games, which was rumored and makes complete sense. The...

    What game would get you to buy a console?

    A new Skies of Arcadia game would get me to buy a new/different console.

    XBOX ONE X folks, check in here!

    Interesting. I figured with E3 being so close they wouldn't even bother announcing anything with the Master Chief Collection until then, so it'd be awesome if it released before June 12th.

    Sea of Thieves is the most fun i've ever had playing a co-op game.

    Rare has announced three content updates, with the first one coming next month: The Hungering Deep, coming in May, introduces a new AI threat, new gameplay mechanics "to assist players on this adventure," along with new rewards. They will also begin a weekly events program, which as the name...

    19 more original Xbox games added to Xbox One backwards compatibility list

    Nope... Unfortunately Xbox Live, for the original Xbox, was shut down back in 2010.

    19 more original Xbox games added to Xbox One backwards compatibility list

    Yesterday Microsoft announced 19 more original Xbox games are coming to the Xbox One, via backward compatibility. The best part is they are all releasing this month: Original Xbox games arriving April 17 Blinx: The Time Sweeper Breakdown Conker: Live & Reloaded The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind...

    Definitely worth it! Looks great on the Xbox One X as well.

    Sea of Thieves is the most fun i've ever had playing a co-op game.

    I've been playing it since the technical alpha, and followed the developer updates, so I knew exactly what the game was going to have to offer. Personally, the game is only so fun playing solo, but playing with a group of three friends is where it's the most fun. Rare definitely has to address...

    XBOX ONE X folks, check in here!

    Unfortunately the game doesn't run at a locked 60 FPS, while running at 4K resolution, but it looks like it runs at 60 a majority of the time. I don't have the game yet (only downloaded the demo), but I might have to pick it up now.

    New to the Xbox One Scene...

    Some of these aren't necessarily long, but most of them are priced anywhere from $15 to $30 new. Plus most of them have had Xbox One X Enhanced/4K updates: Bioshock: The Collection (3 games in 1) Forza Horizon 3 (X Enhanced) Gears of War 4 (X Enhanced) Halo 5 (X Enhanced) Halo: The Master Chief...

    Sea of Thieves is the most fun i've ever had playing a co-op game.

    Had a blast over the weekend, playing with three other people. One night we successfully raided a skeleton fort (my first, their 3rd or 4th), while at the same time fought off another team of pirates, who were trying to capitalize on our efforts. We took them out, loaded up our ship, and got...

    Sea of Thieves is the most fun i've ever had playing a co-op game.

    I played both the technical alpha, and the private and public betas, and really enjoyed it. I ended up on a couple of good random 4 man crews, that led to adding some new people to my friends list, and the plan is to play the final game together. Anyway, I have the game pre-ordered and I'm...

    XBOX ONE X folks, check in here!

    Yeah, for what it's worth I've plugged all my Xbox consoles, starting with the original, all the way to the Xbox One X, into various surge protectors. I never had any issues, minus getting the RRoD with the Xbox 360... Either way, at least you got yours working properly!

    XBOX ONE X folks, check in here!

    I remember over a month ago somebody at Microsoft tweeted a reminder to not plug your Xbox One X into a surge protector, and to just plug it into the wall, since it has built in surge protection. I remember it made the rounds on some of the tech/gaming sites, and of course sparked a lot of...

    The other day I noticed it had downloaded the update. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm eager to see how it looks. I'll probably play it this weekend.

    XBOX ONE X folks, check in here!

    Unfortunately your experience is going to differ game to game. Some games run native 4K, at 60 fps (Forza 7), while others might do 4K checker-boarding, or have a dynamic resolution that goes up 4K at 60 fps (Titanfall 2). Some games, like Gears of War 4, Rise of the Tomb Raider, etc., give...
