@DarthNocturnal You're welcome.

As for Destroy All Humans: not my cup of tea. I tried out the reboot/remaster on the Wii a couple of years back, and although mildly entertaining, I found most of it a bit too... well, juvenile for my taste. Maybe it's my age, seeing as I'm soon to be 48, or maybe it's simply not my kind of game. And that is also why I haven't mentioned it in my list of recommendations.

Concerning the digitally bought and possibly re-downloadable games: that could come, but so far, all I've personally seen available for download on my own Xbox One S is the Games with Gold titles, and those are only Xbox 360 titles, so I'm not holding out for digitally purchased OG Xbox titles to become available for free download or even for a discount. But if it does happen, then I would personally like to request Stubbs the Zombie. That's the only OG Xbox game I ever purchased digitally on my Xbox 360...

Eh? Destroy All Humans never got a reboot or remaster on any system. Wii did get Big Willy Unleashed, but I don't believe that was made by Pandemic (they were either working for EA by then, or assimilated).

Some of the juvenile humor is present throughout the entire series (what little I played of 2 seemed to ramp it up somewhat), but there were some good satire/ fun poking. Like when you impersonate a mayor and blame all of the town's issues on communism (it's set in the 50s. “Better dead then red“ and all that).

Panzer Dragoon Orta is the finest rail shooter ever made. I love the Star Fox franchise, but Orta blows Star Fox out of the water, er, uhm... sky.

Seriously. Orta is amazing.

@DarthNocturnal Ah, okay. I thought it was simply a port of the Xbox original with some minor graphical polish. And I did recognize the satire in the Wii game as well, which is why I said I found it mildly entertaining in some part. The voice acting was also good, but the whole fart jokes/fart gun and belching got real boring real fast at a certain point.

@ThanosReXXX Nah, the "cheap one" is the S. Not sure what pricing is like now, but back when we were first talking, S was actually cheaper than OG units floating around.

Yeah, I agree with the glaring omission of the disc drive and now the roles should have been reversed. I can't explain that one, at all! Though Sony got lucky because at least here people almost see discs as quaint and retro and everything is streaming streaming streaming......and maybe that was Sony's point, to force people onto their digital media platforms? That's all I've got....

Yeah, Pro is cheaper because it's less powerful, as well as because it's older. But that price difference still speaks to a lot of people. More games available, lower price, versus less games available, better visuals, more money....... X1X absolutely is more niche for the crowd that really wants a gaming PC without bothering with a gaming PC, but equally willing to give up the typical perks of console (first and second party games.) Making that the pricier option isn't doing it any favors. The S is in fact the better budget console though (worse performance than base PS4, but also cheaper.....) So Sony keeps the middle while MS chips at the high end and low ends. For now, middle seems to be the big money though.

As for Sea of Thieves, even if it's not all that great, it's still the first significant exclusive in a long time, and definitely raised awareness or attention on the X1. Something that doesn't happen often.

@NEStalgia Where did you read that the One S has worse performance than the base PS4? Because that isn't true. And currently, we have the PS4 Slim, and in a direct comparison, the Xbox One S wins on several fronts:

The PS4's GPU is slightly stronger (0.3 Tflops to be exact), but that is negligible in the larger picture, because the Xbox One has faster and more RAM.

It looks like XBL will honor old purchases! The Xbox Original games went live, and Destroy All Humans was added to my “ready to install“ collection.

Metal Arms when?

@DarthNocturnal Well, congrats, then. This actually got me hoping (probably against all hope considering it's popularity/rarity) that they actually will put Stubbs the Zombie in any of the upcoming waves. Would be nice...

So how exactly is MGS Peace Walker backwards compatible. It says it is on the main site but I thought the only version that was available in the west was part of the MGS collection. Which the backwards compatability list doesn't actually mention. I'm confused.

Converted from Sony to Nintendo during 7th gen and never looked back.

@Dezzy The MGS Collection for xbox 360 had 2 Disc first disc had MGS 2 and MGS 3, and the Second Disc had only MGS Peace Walker on it, plus they sold it separately on the Xbox Live Store. That is why only MGS Peace Walker is backwards compatible. Hopefully they will soon release the MGS 2 and MGS 3 as backwards compatible that would be great.

@mowerdude

Cool, thanks. That's awesome. I'm not fussed about 2 and 3 as I have them on Vita. But the PSP version of Peace Walker is just annoying to play.

This youtuber claims to have seen leaks suggesting Xbox will announce a new Perfect Dark and Fable 4 at this E3:

Fable 4 would be a good move. Xbox needs more variety in its exclusives.

I'm hoping for more AoE 2 DE/ AOE 3 DE/ AOE 4 news... but I'm not sure if that falls under Xbox (although, AOE 1 DE uses XBL for online).

@Dezzy Interesting lineup, if he's guessed it all correctly. Some of these games are obviously already expected, so I think it's safe to say that he's at least partially right.

@NEStalgia Check out that video above here and listen very carefully to everything being said starting from 8m55s...

Why don't Microsoft release Minecraft 2 and make it an Xbox exclusive? That'd sure sell some consoles.

@Dezzy that would be a dumb move imo. Sure it would move some xboxes but they would lose out on literally of millions of sales also. I mean I've bought Minecraft 3 times already, not once on a Microsoft system. If they did release an Xbox exclusive Minecraft 2 it wouldn't motivate me to get an Xbox, I would just have my kids play something else lol. I highly doubt that would move enough to justify the lost sales from PC, ps4, Switch, mobile etc.

@redd214

Depends how much profit they make on consoles compared to software really I guess.
You could say something similar about Mario Kart. That would sell tens of millions if it was on every platform.

redd214

@Dezzy yeah of course you could say the same thing about Mario Kart, God of War, halo that's not the point. The fact of the matter is one of the main reasons Minecraft is the 2nd best selling game in history is because it's literally on everything. The precedent is already there vs something like MK and they would be losing out on millions of dollars that I highly doubt the would recoup on hardware sales. I mean just from me from buying it multiple times plus expansions, skin packs, buying story mode they've gotten well over $150. Had it been exclusive they would have not gotten that from me. I know I'm just one guy and not that important but in the grand scheme I think there are many like that.

Ah well, we will never know but I just think it would be unwise.

How does an ever-changing game like Minecraft even get a sequel? We've probably gotten a sequel or two worth of content/ features already...

@DarthNocturnal I remember people at Mojang saying something similar when MS bought them. When asked about a Minecraft 2 they said it made more sense just to update and iterate on what they had vs just making a sequel.
