I really wish MS would create an app/tool we could install on our older 360 units that could bulk upload ALL game saves to the cloud. Irritating that i have to go hook up my 360 every time i buy a BC game and then jump through hoops to get specific saves available to the new console.

What games is everyone looking forward to from Xbox first party studios this year?

I'm trying to not get my hopes up on anything, I think there's a good chance things get delayed into 2023. The only one that really gets me excited is Starfield, the rest seem pretty "meh".

From First Party studio games announced:
- Starfield

Redfall is likely to be good but don't know enough about it.

From First Party rumoured games:
- Josh Sawyer's one
- Project Belfry is also i think rumoured to be this year

From XGS published games:
- As Dusk Falls (sucker for the little that we have seen)

I think it's a year of the Xbox Indies at the moment for me. In terms of first party studio's, I am waiting on Ninja Theory mainly.

Anybody having a problem with the guide button,I would be playing farcry 6 and when I’m finished I would press the guide button and it would take a while for it to respond.

I’ve had it for a while now. The delay varies from game to game. Sometimes it is instant and sometimes it takes up to 2-3 seconds. I saw people discuss it on twitter but I don’t remember seeing a solution.

£95 of Reward credit boys. What to buy?

I have a Series S and Elite v2. Wanted the Wireless headset at £90 for a while but having second thoughts now. Want an Electric Volt pad as back up.

Any other suggestions?

I've been getting more open-minded about different genres since getting GP a few years ago. Some of my favourites have been games that I would have never tried out 5,10,20 years ago, so I'm looking forward to pretty much everything MS will throw at us. Obviously, Starfield is the one I'm looking forward the most.

Aviable for preorder


Ignoring Sense since i don't care for horror games or the horror genre in media generally, Hatsune Miku is shocking since Xbox isn't big in Japan...but i would rather see any of the rhythm games rather than this, i like Picross don't get me wrong, but i mostly play it on smartphones, not a PC or TV screen, it's just one game that feels right on a handheld form to me.

If it was any of the Project Diva games, maybe i would consider buying the game, but for Picross on Xbox...ehhhh, even knowing that not buying the game will just translate into developers not wanting to do more Hatsune Miku stuff on Xbox in the future.

What's next, a DJ Max game for Xbox that is actually a hidden objects game?

For me it's almost 10 euros. i dunno, my issue is that there are already a lot of free Picross options on mobile and online, i know, they don't have vocaloid songs and themes but i guess i am not that big of a fan.

What's up with the download speeds on the Series X, it's always using around half my bandwidth.

Turn off quick resume
I think you mean suspend your game in the download queue menu if you have a game or app active in the bg.

Even then that won’t guarantee maximum speeds. If there’s something like a game running the speeds would be more like 20 Mbps not just “half”.

No just hovers around 170, I wouldn't be mad if it was around 250.

Wow...all games i have never heard of, well, that doesn't mean anything, i think the first three are from the same people, have they ever done anything decent?

Elex...okay, i think i heard about it from CRPG fans, wasn't that a super hardcore RPG that was made for people who played the likes of old Wizardry games?

Well, what else has Konami done of note recently that we don't already know about?

If it was another collection, it would be bigger news, so it's either some NFT stuff or maybe we get some pachinko ports, there are pachinko video games for some reason after all.

How is Big Team Battle still fucked up?

343 is the worst. They are really fucking up this Halo launch.
Game will be dead soon.

Its gonna be fixed real soon did you not see the update

Great
Its only been broken for how many weeks?

343 is the absolute worst. They are blowing it.

Even if BTB worked... why does the menu system suck so much? Why are there not persistent lobby's? Why does it take entirely too long to start a game?

Looked at new releases, saw Spelunky 2, recalled the hours i spent with the first game...the freeware version, then the hours spent with the HD version, and bought it, yes, it's on Game Pass and full price and i don't give a damn, Derek Yu deserves it.

2022 is shaping up to be a phenomenal year for Microsoft’s Xbox Series X/S, after an arguably subdued 2021. Gameplay reveals for upcoming titles are starting to demonstrate the graphical power of the Unreal Engine 5, the larger budgets behind some of these titles is allowing developers to maximise their game’s potential.

Many of these games will be published by Xbox Game Studios too, meaning they’ll be available day one on Xbox game pass – a win for Xbox fans.

Got my Series S yesterday to compliment my PS5. Bought Master Chief collection as first game.

Combat Evolved's gameplay is still so good after all these years. Playing with original graphics of course. Heroic difficulty (I have done Legendary in the past). Every gun outside the dumbass Needler has a time & place. Elite AI is still fantastic & seeing grunts panic & die from explosions still puts a smile on my face. What a game.
