  1. https://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2020-07-09-how-minecraft-and-mojang-taught-xbox-how-to-buy-studios Really good read. Great to hear they are taking a far different approach than how they used to handle 1st Party. Also, sounds like we can definitely expect more acquisitions.
  2. A couple of users here know about my issue that I had this past week but I figured I'd post it here and see what you guys' thoughts are. So I have spent the past three months of the pandemic with my parents across the country from where I live (Los Angeles). I have an Xbox One S here at my parent's house and now a PS4 and a Switch along with my laptop so I'm pretty well supplied as far as gaming goes. Last week I had to fly back to my place to take care of some things and I was shocked to discover that my day one Xbox One X Scorpio edition had died. I would try to turn it on and it would power on for a second or two then cut out. I tried all of the troubleshooting steps, reseting the power supply, plugging it into a different outlet. No dice. Now I had been gone from the apartment for almost four months and the console should have been powered off during that time. I don't believe there were any power surges or outages in the apartment because no other electronics were affected and my clock in my bedroom still displayed the correct time. So I ruled out an electrical issues but here's where it gets weird. I went to power on my OG Xbox in my bedroom and that one was bricked too That one wouldn't even power on at all. So the only conclusion I could come to was that an update, pushed by MS during the time I was gone bricked these consoles. It's the only thing I can think of as again, no other electronics in the apartment displayed any issues. So... what say you?
  3. Teaser on Twitter today... Banished as the main antagonists? Yes please. I still do need to play Halo Wars 2, but the Atriox trailers were awesome. Edit - While this is for Halo Wars 2, and I don't know if Atriox will even be in the new Halo, I liked the idea of the Banish far more than whatever we were fighting in Halo 4 and 5.
  4. Ok, so maybe a dumb question but MS hasn't made this an easy process to set up. So basically, I'm trying to figure out the best way to set my kids up with some games. For the last few years we've been sharing an Xbox One S, my account has the Gold (and Gamepass) sub, and all the games are purchased through me. They then play their games on their own accounts on the box, like the little leeches they are I finally picked up an X1X and will be moving the 1S to their bedroom...how do I set this up so they can still play the games and use Gold? Do I leave the 1S as my "home" Xbox? I believe doing so would mean I'd lose access on the X1X if the internet went out, right? Because it wouldn't be "home"? If I leave their box as my "home", can my wife still use her own account on the 1X and have access to our stuff? aaaaagh I hate having multiple consoles lol Thanks for your help, I hope I was clear enough.
  5. Just because we had to delete and repost this doesn't mean these games aren't still coming soon! pro tip: play Gears 5 on Sep. 6 (4 days early) with XGP Ultimate all dates: https://t.co/TcXYjowLUz pic.twitter.com/0CCThbSCMd — Xbox Game Pass (@XboxGamePass) September 4, 2019
  6. Is no one playing this? I've actually been really loving it. While simple, it really does a good job of having a great loot system that makes finding new loot fun and meaningful. Also has a lot if pretty varied build potential depending on the loot u find. For whatever reason it's not a Play Anywhere title though which is bullshit since it lends itself perfectly for it.
  7. ..through the damn trilogy collection? I tried on the Xbone...said go to website. go to website, its listed but not damn price..so unless I am internet failing..im guessing the 360 marketplace is the only option...what a crock. it doesnt help that im fighting the Animal Crossing online experience (turnips!) as i search
  8. Did the Skeletons thrones last night with @Emblazon and @kittykat. Man it's weird how such a simple task can become an adventure especially when dealing with other online players. We had to find another crew to help us find and sit on the thrones but had no luck. The first sloop we approached to help us was out at sea. It looked like he was all for cooperating. When we got to the island to search for the Throne, Kitty Kat and Emblazon went on the island while I stayed on the boat to look out for other pirates, the ship we thought was gonna help us out start shooting cannon at our galleon. I didn't realize it was him that was sinking us as I went down to the bright to repair our boat. Then he boarded the boat and started slashing at me yelling "arrrrg". Our boat sank so we spawned elsewhere to look try again to find a friendly crew to help us. The second sloop we found was in the middle of digging up some treatsure. We slowly rolled right next to them using our megaphone stating our intentions and they freaked out and booked it. We had the winds at our back so we caught up quick and we yelled at them that we don't want to loot them but they just kept sailing away so we just let them go. We switched servers and found a sloop out in the distance. As we tried to sail towards it we get attacked by the Kraken. This would be the second time we gotten attacked by the Kraken in the span of 1 hour or so. The sloop just sailed around us watching the Kraken tear up our ship. We managed to get away but then a storm fell right on top of us. We were running low on planks and felt the game really didn't want us to complete this event. We managed to find our way out of the storm and as the sun came out we see the sloop anchored at a sunken ship. Me and Kitty Kat hop on their sloop with treasure. We see one of the players AFK. Kitty Kat waves at Kim and I'm just jumping around with the treasure in hand to show that we are friendly. He comes back to and he thinks we want his loot. We explain that we want thrones and they agree to help us. In return we would give them a mauraders and captains chest for their services. As we pull up to a nearby Outpost so they can turn in their loot before we head off for the Thrones another galleon apporached us. We try to communicate to the that we are friendly and are on our way to do the weekly event. Well they fired their cannons at us so it was on like Donkey Kong. They had no chance against us and the sloop working together. We fired away and did a good amount of damage to them. So they retreated. We continued with offloading our loot and they decided to come back for seconds. But once docked it was an all out battle for the island. We killed most of them and suck their ship. They spawned back and we left stranded at the Outpost with no ship. It didn't have to come down to this if they hadn't fired on us Well after a total of 4 hours we completed the weekly event. I had a blast and working with another crew is definitely the best aspect of it. Nothing like sailing with like minded pirates. Here are some picks of our adventure.

  10. "As per some of our earlier information on Xbox "Lockhart" and the Xbox Series X, we're expecting Lockhart to be a 4TF "entry-point" to next-gen gaming, and it should effectively replace the Xbox One X. This system is designed to be affordable but will offer aspects of a next-gen experience currently unavailable to past-gen consoles, presumably in the form of NVME loading speeds and perhaps some limited ray-tracing. We have no idea about the capabilities of Lockhart outside that magical "4TF" GPU number, which came alongside more of our detailed Xbox Series X info that turned out to be accurate." "In addition to Lockhart potentially moving out of the lab into the homes of internal Microsoft testers, we've heard Team Xbox is building a replacement for its 2014 Xbox Stereo Headset. If our sourcing on this is accurate, the new headset will be fully wireless, compatible with Xbox, PC, and mobile devices, presumably via separate Bluetooth and Xbox Wireless signals" More details here, reiterating prior Fable rumors as well: https://www.windowscentral.com/okay-lets-talk-about-current-xbox-rumors-may-and-june-events-lockhart-revealed-and-more
