Can I just say FFXV is amazingly weird? I mean weirder than normal FF weird. It's just weird. Cool, fun, crazy.....a little bit Monster Hunter meets....IDK.....but definitely a strange game that I'm not sure if it ought to be called FF but is cool all the same.

But dang is it weird.

New locations will be on the stream. There's four streams across this month showing off the seasons and various other features. Forza Horizon 4 is going to be the greatest, by the sound of all this.
You'll need to be on their Mixer account for it, far as I'm aware, so mixer.com/xbox. Hopefully they also give the times for the next of these streams as well.

That livestream confirmed my love for this game. Stunning. There is so much to it that makes it feel more alive than previous games. The only thing I'm not so sure of is the results screen being self contained and not within the world itself, but there's no denying it doesn't have visual flair. Some of those moments in the stream are GIF worthy - especially that jump.
Speaking of, the next one will be next Tuesday at 19:00 BST, showing off the map itself and some bonus board locations. They also confirmed the map is around the same size as Australia in FH3.

I am excited about Forza Horizon 4 but I don't want to see much before playing. It's so good that it will have a 60 fps on Xbox One X.

Give me this and Sea of Thieves over any PS4 exclusive.

@redd214 For future reference: stuff like that is always quite easy to find on the official Xbox YouTube channel. In the playlists, you'll also find all the Inside Xbox videos.

@DarkRula You can also watch Mixer on the Xbox One itself. Nice option for some relaxed, on the couch watching on the big screen. Once you've made an account on your PC, it'll be linked to the one on your Xbox One, much like how it works with YouTube.

@BlueOcean Have you managed to have fun with Sea of Theives? I kind of started it...tried to do a 2 player dinghy and it seemed kind of aimless and boring and put it down.

NEStalgia

BlueOcean

@NEStalgia Not in the first days but now yes, I definitely love it! And it's getting more stuff which is great. I find it really beautiful, with great sound and entertaining. I have more fun playing with friends but sometimes I like being solo, eluding confrontation and doing more relaxing quests or exploring. It's a wonderful world.

BlueOcean

NEStalgia

@BlueOcean I didn't think you even could play solo. I tried co-op with one person and it was like...ok...island...stores I can do nothing with....lets get on the boat (that needs 2 people)....go...somewhere.....stumbled on some fortress island....had no idea what to do there and it felt like I shouldn't be there.

Granted this was before E3 and the add-on but I imagine the start of the game is the same. How do you get into it solo?

NEStalgia

BlueOcean

You just choose the sloop, private crew and that's it.

I find the game to have much more variety than most online-focused games. Exploration, collection, skeleton battles, treasure hunting, sea monsters, confrontation or friendship with other players...

Add to all this the side quests like the Hungering Deep, the upcoming volcanic sea and the skeleton ships.

Because the game lacks a tutorial, I would actually encourage players to try playing solo first. Being in a galleon with three strangers is overwhelming when you don't know the game.

BlueOcean

DarthNocturnal

Yeah, sloop can be solo'd easily. And they've added crew privacy options, so you can even go it alone in a galleon if you desire (although I wouldn't recommend it).

I just wish matchmaking was better. I feel like I either keep joining new crews, only for them to disband for some unknown reason, or I join a crew in progress which.... has disbanded for some unknown reason.

Or worse, they're the pirates who don't do anything. No voyages, no events, just... nothing. Or if not nothing, it's nothing productive.

I actually got into a crew with a Legend just a few days ago. Did an Athena voyage, got to see the hideout, and we did a skull fort while doing said voyage. It was a bit of an uphill battle due to some crew members who were.... uncooperative, but eventually we got some decent replacements.

Heck, that one time I was brigged before I even loaded into the game world resulted in a better session then most of my matchmaking sessions.

@DarthNocturnal I wish matchmaking would consider voice chat filter and that the game would support keyboard chat on Xbox One. I prefer voice chat but when someone turns it off I can't even type anything, there is a chat wheel but I find it difficult to use. They say that they are working on this and other requests.

Yes, there are stupid people but unfortunately that happens in all games, but I also have met great people randomly. It's not always the best experience but can be great. It reminds me of cooperative play on Monster Hunter.

BlueOcean

ThanosReXXX

@DarthNocturnal Hahaha... thanks for that image. Now I'm imagining a single pirate on a galleon, running around like crazy, simply to be able to perform all of the tasks that a crew would have done, flying to and fro, left and right. The exertion will probably kill him before he even comes across any real danger...

@BlueOcean

I feel like Monster Hunter has a much better success ratio, due to everyone being of (mostly) the same mind. Same target, etc.

SoT... it's a complete crapshoot. Like today. I'm trying to do the new event, but I can't seem to find crews that are doing them. And even the few that do, not everyone seems to be on the same page. This gets annoying when you encounter a green or red cursed mermaid statue, but you don't have enough people to back you up.

Heck, I rarely put down my own voyages because most crews just don't hold together. I could solo sloop, but that comes with some risks...

I am hoping that they add text chat to XB1's version though. Might help in a pinch if I need to convey something specific that I can't get across in non-verbal chat wheel phrases...

@ThanosReXXX

It's actually quite manageable if you stick to one sail, maybe two. But yeah, I'd only suggest it in emergencies (i.e. your crew is on an island and another ship with it's cannons ready is sailing right at you. In which case, I'd just lower all three to get out of dodge, so then your crew can warp back).

@DarthNocturnal Guess I have to try it at some point, then. Although right now, I just don't have the time, but it does all start to sound more interesting. All the initial footage that I saw of it, didn't really grab my attention, but I keep hearing positive stuff about it, so we'll see, maybe after the summer...

Games with gold questions. Can I get a game with a one month gold membership...and do you lose access to the game after the membership expires? Been years since I used Live. So I don't remember how it works.

Edit nevermind: different rules for x1 and 360. I'm good.

@Ryu_Niiyama Yeah, the free Xbox One games are only accessible as long as you have Xbox Live Gold.
But DO note, that Xbox 360 games, that you download to your Xbox One, courtesy of Games with Gold, actually will still work and be yours, regardless of whether or not you have a Live Gold subscription.

I'd say get a cheap subscription at cdkeys.com, it's still worth it, if only for the free games.
