@Delibheel I have both the Wii U and switch on to of my One S and not had any issues. Most of the fan area is clear and it doesn't get that hot.

@DarthNocturnal Yeah, and they haven't made that claim to the old brand at any point before. Technically Brian Fargo (inExile, interplay/black isle) is the actual creator..... feargus is kind of cocreator second class..... And Chris Taylor was the producer of 1 and 2 (not the supreme Commander, total annihilation, dungeon siege Chris Taylor, the other one). But still, a lot of that team was part of it.

Bethesdas vision for fallout is just a zombie apocalypse in the 1950s. It's dreary and dull with no personally (which is so weird since tes is tons of personality). OW is everything fallout that Bethesda forgot. I'm all in already! The apocalypse just got attitude again (pls the renewed competition may keep bethesda on the their toes for tes6. Or just have Zenimax do it. They still remember what rpgs are.

@Ryu_Niiyama Ah, my bad. I was only half serious, though. Hence the smiley.

@NEStalgia Haha, yeah. On some level, it wouldn't even surprise me that the reason that they aren't going to be on the next E3, is because they're largely going to blame all the screw ups they made on external factors, so this coming year, they'll just hold their own event, like EA, Ubisoft and Bethesda...

@NEStalgia @DarthNocturnal The announcement of this "actual" successor to the original Fallout certainly made me chuckle...

@Delibheel As long as whatever you place on top is placed on the left side, and has a little bit of space in between (which should be the case, seeing as most systems have rubber or plastic 'feet' underneath them), the Xbox One will be just fine.

Hmmmm, VIP Anthem demo is coming late January, and EA Access subs get access... and I just got codes for two free months (one month each) for pre-ordering BFV (which I can redeem anytime between now and March 31st). I wonder if freebie codes are eligible.

Also, open beta early February.

@Anti-Matter I think it is a memory card, yes. No internal storage. But I never owned any of the later models Xbox 360.

@NEStalgia might be able to tell you a bit more about that, I think.

@ThanosReXXX @Anti-Matter

As I recall, the 4GB of storage in the “Arcade“ 360 was internal storage. The unit was supposed to be a cheap alternative, compared to buying a 360 with an HDD. At best, 4 GBs meant you had room for game patches.

I still have a Slim I won in a contest that also had 4 GBs of internal storage. Never used it, because 360 HDDs were crazy expensive for the storage you got, and it wasn't compatible with my pre-existing HDD (at least, not without removing the drive itself from it's casing). Then I got an XB1, so it didn't matter anymore.

@ThanosReXXX they hold their own events every year..... They skipped that this year, too..... . All the obvious speculation is it involves the ps5 announcement, but...... Skipping your own event and not even showing up at the big event.... Not even a folding table with pamphlets for indie games or something..... That's just bizarre. When you look quiet compared to Nintendo, youre definitely doing it wrong . It's possible if not probable that have an enormous spare no expenses media blitz planned sometime after June all the budget is going into..... But it's still weird for #1 to just entirely ignore so the events.

@Anti-Matter hmm, I'm not sure actually. Arcade models didn't come with the hard drive..... But idon't remember anything about memory stick...i wonder if they bundled then with usb thumb sticks for limited storage at some point? That's a head scratcher. Fwiw there's no special memory card slot or anything, so it's either usb or just ab oddly worded reference to a small hdd or internal storage?

@DarthNocturnal yeah those 360 drives were grossly priced. Though i think they fixed that with the last redesign that didn't even take those weird custom enclosed ones anymore.

Curious about anthem. I actually already preordered because e3 made it sound a lot better than i expected.... But then i found teso.... That's kind of consuming the online mmo games thing for me.

Battlefield V back down to $30 on Newegg if anyone is interested. Seems to be a great MP experience from what I've read. Definitely not for me but a AAA game half off weeks after launch is worth sharing I guess

DarthNocturnal

Starting to wish I had held off on buying BFV... ah well. I had fun when I played it a week or so back. So no major regrets.

Shrouded Spoils will be up for at least all of December in SoT. I wouldn't be surprised if it extends into January, given the devs will probably on holiday for a bit.

If you don't care about graphics, backwards compatability is just so damn good. It adds so much value to the console.
I've bought like 5 x360 games in the last month. All for a few bucks.
Just got Bad Company 2 cos everyone says it's the best Battlefield game.

Skyrim is not compatible right? A store here is selling the 360 version for cheap.

Yeah I don’t know either.

@Dezzy I know, right? i swear half my X1 collection consists of newly bought 360/XBOX games. I just love building up my digital library with the games I liked or wanted for the past 18 years.

It's actually tempting me to buy the FF games on X1 instead of Switch just so I can have them long term in my library rather than buying them every generation (but they'd be sooo great on Switch...)

I just get worried that that goodness won't last forever because it will be too problematic to keep backward compatibility going long term, and/or publishers will realize they make a lot more money selling the same game every 7 years at full price than selling it at reduced price digitally, endlessly, once to each player.

Just in the last 6 months months, I added FFXIII trilogy, Brutal Legend, the older Mass Effects, Dragon Ages, Castlevania LoS games (except Los1, not digital), BG&E, the Rare games, the Fable games, lots of Sonic games, Jet Set radio, Overlord, Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey (thanks, Thanos! ) I might even be missing some. There was a huge BC digital sale in August or September with lots of goodness on it.

I really hope perpetual BC remains a thing. Sony will probably copy it, (and oh boy the backlash if they don't....), but it's really a great, if not the greatest, feature. One giant library of 2 decades of games on one box is just amazing.

@Delibheel No, Skyrim is incompatible. Bethesda never bothered since they were making the enhanced version for the X1. Morrowind and Oblivion are ok though, so you can get the whole post-Daggerfall TES collection on one machine at least. Morrowind has aged very badly though.

Guess I'll just stick to the switch version then.

Yeah I don’t know either.

@Dezzy What's wrong with Xbox 360 graphics? Nothing, if you ask me. A lot of games can still look and play pretty damn good, and playing them on the Xbox One/One X makes the experience even better, as you've now found out.

But don't stop there: you should buy OG Xbox game Black as well. No, seriously, ask @NEStalgia...

@ThanosReXXX @Dezzy Just nod and walk back slowly without any sudden movements...just say you bought Black....it's better that way.... he'll leave you alone. Seriously though, it's a neat kid of retro shooter if you like the Golden Eye type experience. Thanos is pretty big into it. For me, it's not a must have, but it's a fun, well put together trip to what seems like a dead subgenre of shooters.

360 graphics....honestly they're kind of hit or miss depending on the game. That era had a lot of volatility. Fable 1 is remastered and looks great, Fable 2 looks really blurry, they were into those bloom shaders at the time....they looked bad at the time, and they look really obsolete now. Fable 3 looks excellent. Brutal Legend looks rough.... Dragon Age 1 & 2....ok, lets face it they looked bad even on PC at launch.... BG&E looks great. It really depends on the game and how abusive they were with bloom.

@ThanosReXXX

Yeah there are plenty that still look incredible. FF13-2 could easily be a current gen game.

Obviously on average they're a bit worse looking though.
