    Microsoft Forza Horizon 4 demo live

    And.. shocker.. it looks fuggin' incredible.
  2. I didn't see the old thread we had before the board was rebooted so I figured I'd start a new one. Three more games were added to B.C. this week, Dante's Inferno which was also added to EA Access, Silent Hill HD remaster And Silent Hill Homecoming I'm happy MS is still supporting B.C. They need to add The Saboteur and Ninja Gaiden 2 soon, though.
  3. Always looking for squad or duo mates. Feel free to add me on XBL (sblfilms).
  4. I have been having this issue for quite sometime but I just ignored it. When playing Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One witha wired connection I can't connect to Xbox Live playing 360 games. I'm online via the Xbox One as I can see my friends list and go back to playing Xbox One games online but playing games like Mordern Warfare 2 via Backwards Compatibility I get the check your connection as you are not connected to Xbox live. Funny thing is if I disconnect the wired connection and my Xbox is on wifi it works. I have checked all my settings, IP addresses, DNS and open all my ports but still can't connect using BC. It sucks because in games like MW2 a WiFi connection will give you a disadvantage and also I don't want to disconnect my wired connection Everytime I want to play BC titles. I'm trying to figure this out as I am not the only one having this issue it seems.
  5. I'm so F&^%ing pissed as I did not want to buy 2 of these consoles!! I thought that they just might not do a white "X" because of the S's . . lol but NOPE HERE IT IS Moth#@ Fu^%&r

  7. It doesn't even detect a wifi signal coming from anywhere, so it is hard to even try and work out the problem. I will call Xbox today. The kicker? My 2 year Geek Squad warranty expired yesterday. @Pikachu Round yellow head with eyes welled up in tears, indeed Pika.
  8. The Russian group linked to the hacking of Hillary Clinton’s presidential election campaign has been launching fresh attacks in the US, including against two conservative thinktanks, in the run-up to the midterm elections, according to Microsoft.
  9. I've been hearing things here and there but haven't been able to find specifics, I have a 2TB One S and I'm hearing it's like $360ish for trade in towards a One X.. I'm very tempted by this but have no clue where to go for this deal
  10. 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.
  11. I tried to do a search, and I am sorry if I missed someone else posting about this. If there is another thread Mods please go ahead a delete this one. From Den of Geek: http://www.denofgeek.com/us/games/microsoft/275041/microsoft-game-division-reports-record-10-billion-revenue
  12. Take a wild guess which one of our board members is effected by this.

    Microsoft Anybody Playing Vigor

    New survival game from the Arma Devs in early preview on Xbox. I've been playing it the last couple of days and it has potential. Still a work in progress and they need to add more game modes but the game definitely has promise.
  14. Microsoft’s streaming Xbox will split up games to keep latency low "Last month, we learned that Microsoft is developing a pair of new Xboxes for release in 2020 under the codename Scarlett. One system will be a full console; the other will be a cloud-connected system for streaming games. Today, Brad Sams at Thurrott.com has more to say about that streaming box. We know Microsoft has been interested in developing a streaming service for many years. At this year's E3, the company reaffirmed that it's working on a streaming service that will allow games to be run in the Azure cloud and streamed to a relatively simple set-top box. This makes the end-user hardware much cheaper, but it has a consistent problem: latency. Every button press on the controller has to travel over the Internet to the server before it can be processed, and every frame of video similarly has to make the reverse trip before it can be seen. For games that don't rely on twitch reactions (RPGs or turn-based games, say) this is no big deal. But for games like first-person shooters, it's a huge problem. According to Sams, Microsoft's solution is that the Scarlett Cloud box (as one person called it) will have some amount of processing power of its own. Not enough to run full games, but enough to do collision detection, input handling, and some amount of graphical processing locally without having to wait for the remote server. To do this, games are split into two parts (referred to as "slices" or "splices")—one part runs in the cloud; the other runs on the console. The result is that Scarlett Cloud is apparently suitable for a wide range of games, even those that would normally be considered too latency-sensitive to be streamable. In fact, Sams reports that every Scarlett game will run on every Scarlett device, so streaming gamers won't be left out. The downside to this approach is that it makes the hardware more expensive than if it was purely a dumb streaming device, but it's still markedly less expensive than a full console would need to be. Streaming games will of course require some kind of a subscription to play. This recurring revenue is a big part of why the company is interested in streamed games in the first place." I still believe that the internet is not read for the streaming of games: 1) Too many people don't have the bandwidth to stream high quality games 2) Data caps are still too low for hard core gamers 3) Not sure if internet connections are stable enough to reliably stream games. I seem to get too many "hiccups" that are annoying on video, but would be disastrous for gaming. However, all signs are pointing to the next generation starting no later than 2020.
  15. Do any of the digital services offer this?

  17. Microsoft spent a year designing and prototyping the packaging for the Adaptive Controller.
  18. So, was thinking of buying an XBox One, and then just bought one during the Prime Day sale. So, any advice on games I should be looking out for? I figure if it's on PC, I've probably already got it, but any Xbox specific games out there that I've been missing out on?
  19. On the stream, 343 writer Jeff Easterling, known in the Halo community as Grim Brother One, said, “I’ll tell you right now, the only BR we’re interested in is Battle Rifle. The original BR. So, calm yourself.”
  20. Microsoft will use a live Inside Xbox show to debut "all-new Xbox hardware and accessories", direct from this year's Gamescom showfloor.
