  2. I figured there might as well be an on-going update thread like the Back Compat one... I'll start it with the March '19 update: Just Cause 4 (March 6th) Fallout 4 -coming back- (March 6th) F1 2018 (March 14th) LEGO Batman 2 (March 14th)
  3. Game Informer It’s hard to say whether Crackdown’s comforting familiarity will sustain over an entire game or just a short burst of time. It will depend not just on the structure, but the variety of mission objectives within that structure. Crackdown 3 has a lot to prove, but if its best quality is feeling like a newer, tighter version of the Xbox 360 original, then that might not be the worst thing. Once vaunted as a gaming revolution, Crackdown 3 is another open-world shooter (Polygon) After playing Crackdown 3 for a couple of hours, I come away feeling vaguely underwhelmed. It’s not that Microsoft’s open-world shooter is unenjoyable, or bad. It’s sorta fun. But it doesn’t feel like a creatively daring AAA exclusive. It feels like a compromise. Crackdown 3, Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Cloud (Gamespot) Now that I've played Crackdown 3 for a few hours it's easy to identify similarities to the 2007 original, but rather than the campaign stealing the show, it's the competitive multiplayer component that will be my reason for paying attention to Crackdown 3 at launch. Cloud-powered action thrives on Xbox One, yet Crackdown 3 is struggling to gain traction (Windows Central) Crackdown 3 is shaping to be a faithful follow-up to its predecessors, retaining much of the franchise's prior successes. Returning fans should find enjoyment, though it's not poised to solve Microsoft's ongoing first-party woes. Crackdown 3: Part Science Experiment, Part Video Game (IGN) The cloud finally comes to life, but in practice, it doesn’t seem to help make Crackdown 3 a great multiplayer game. Crackdown 3 Preview: Xbox Needs More Exclusive Games Like This (ScreenRant) The Xbox One doesn't lack powerful, brooding titles. That's also not something that will set it apart. Exclusives need to set themselves apart, to offer something that other titles don't or can't. Crackdown 3 might not end up being one of the best games ever made, but that's okay. It's a great exclusive that presents a compelling reason to own an Xbox One, and that's exactly what Microsoft needs right now. Crackdown 3's campaign is good old-fashioned mayhem (PC Gamer) Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the multiplayer. Crackdown 3 Hands-On Preview – Breaking Buildings, Not Ground I’m sure many Crackdown fans are hugely excited for Crackdown 3. After all, it’s been a while in the making’ beside the delays, it’s been nine years since Crackdown 2. According to the team at Microsoft Studios, it promises to be a “true Crackdown experience,” which I’m sure takes someone’s fancy. However, based on the slice of the game I recently had the opportunity to play, I’m sorry to say I won’t be amongst those eagerly anticipating its release. Crackdown 3 lets you take on the final boss at Level 1, Breath of the Wild style (GamesRadar) Four years later, Crackdown 3’s multiplayer Wrecking Zone is a shadow of its former self (VG247) Wrecking Zone is a fun mode, however, and it feels like a perfect competitive multiplayer fit for the gleefully over-the-top, super-powered Crackdown universe. I liked it a great deal, as I did Crackdown 3 in general – though it’s a neutered delivery of the promises made far too early in this console generation when, for a moment, it looked like it could be something truly revolutionary.
  4. 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.
  5. Game Informer article According to a report from outlet Direct Feed Games, an outlet that has a strong track record for rumors especially centering around Nintendo, Microsoft and Nintendo are about to get together in a big way in the near future. Not only will some Microsoft games find their way to the Switch, but it looks like the entire Game Pass library might arrive via the magic of streaming.

  7. https://www.theverge.com/2019/1/16/18185318/microsoft-hololens-2-mobile-world-congress-press-event-date Hololens 2 to possibly be shown off next month. The original hololens has mostly been used at an enterprise level. I think it would be pretty cool if this could be an accessory for the next Xbox. AR has some cool applications. Imagine wearing these while playing a horror game on your TV and you see some monster crawl out of your TV onto your living room floor!

  9. 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. In addition to Crackdown 3, the service is adding Shadow of Tomb Raider and The First Two Arkham Games This service gets better and better.
  11. Link to article Franchise pre-orders up 25%, sales up 10%, game time goes up 20%, variety in games played up 40%. I'm loving Games Pass so far. Hopefully Crackdown 3 doesn't suck. I'll be happy as long as it's a good popcorn action game that's fun for a few hours.
  12. I have an original Xbox One and am wondering if the Xbox One X has faster load times. I only have an HDTV so I've been holding off on the X until I got a 4K TV, but if it improves load times, I might have to reconsider. When playing games like Assassin's Creed: Odyssey or Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the load times during fast travel is really long. Would that be faster?

  19. Last month I signed up for Game pass and so far it has been a fantastic deal. Games I have played so far from game pass: Forza Horizon 4 Zombie Army Trilogy Rush: A disneyPixar Adventure (kids) State of Decay 2 Strange Brigade Below Mutant Year Zero (I beat this - Great game!) Agents of Mayhem (bad game, but one I had wanted to try for a while) Also they are adding new games like crazy so I'm sure there will be fresh stuff every month to try. In addition this year games I know I will be playing from this service: Ori and the Will of the Wisps Crackdown 3 Gears 5 On a related note the game Celeste is currently M$'s games with gold game for the month. I have been playing that too and I like it a lot. I got the game pass 12 month for $70 on sale before Christmas. It seems so far like one of the best deals I have gotten in a long time!
  20. Ark Survival Just Cause 3 Life is Strange 2 Absolver https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2019/01/02/xbox-game-pass-january-2019/ I have two of these for PS4, but wouldn't mind replaying Absolver especially with the new DLC and I haven't really touched Just Cause 3.
  21. Celeste, WRC 6 FIA World Rally Championship, Tomb Raider: GOL and Farcry 2
