@BlueOcean Erm, you'll have to excuse me, but I have no idea what you're talking about, so either you're responding to a comment from several pages ago, or you're confusing me with another user.

On a side-note: I'm seldomly, if EVER, wrong, so that's pretty unlikely.

You were wrong about pineapples that one time.

@Delibheel Ah, yes... the pineapple thing. But in all fairness, that was just because that crazy pineapple pen song confused me...

The Xbox site has 3 months of gold on sale for the price of one. It's only available for unsubscribed users, but thankfully my first month ended today. So yay, three more months!

They'll probably have another deal by the time those months expire.

You know, I'm frustrated with Tekken 7. I love that game, it's become my favorite fighter. Soul Calibur 6 is great, but it's so dry next to the energetic Tekken 7. But I always though it was just an ugly game. Apparently it's only a blurry looking mess on XBox. On PC, PS4 Pro it's 4k. On PS4 base and arcades it's 1080p. On XBox One X? It's sub-720p stretched into a blurry hackjob. And Bamco has no intention of patching it because it would be "such an undertaking" with the ancient Unreal engine it runs on (didn't stop a PS4 Pro patch, though.....) They pretty much openly abandoned XBox, but have the nerve to charge for a Season 2 DLC pass on XBox without updating the game.....how about charging us half of the PS4 price since we get the assets at less than half the resolution? I'd be so tempted to rebuy the game on PS4 and get a Brook adapter to plug my Razer joystick into PS4, but I kind of liked all my fighting games being on the X1..... UGH Bamco you wound me!

@ThanosReXXX You've advertised the Dreamcast in this thread in 2 days more than Sega advertised it during it's entire run. Think you can hit up the WiiU thread next?

Yeah I may end up getting this PS4 fixed to have a spare. I need spares of everything (preemptive pessimism, remember? ) It's funny, it runs....runs fine, but endlessly beeps. And keeps beeping more and more. It started as an occasional thing that would go away after it ran a while. Now it beeps for hours. No warranty, I actually bought it used, and I suspect the original owner knew about the problem. There was a rubber foot missing, and after researching beeping I read that there was a known problem with the OG PS4 with the contact switches causing spurious eject beeps and a screw you could loosen under the foot to help. That never applied to Pro, but in hindsight I bet the owner tried that. Ugh! But it was fine the first few months. I felt rediculous buying a new one since I mostly use X, but my PS4 library's growing a bit (Discovered an amazing series The Witch and the Hundred Knight on their current sale...And Danganropa which reminds me of the best themes of Persona 4. Also, Last Remnant which was a 360 exclusive that Square weirdly has stripped from the MS Store and Steam to give a remaster exclusive to Sony.....) So it's less a waste of money now.

Onto other preemptive pessimism news: There was a power outage over the weekend. At first I thought the one X1X was dead....(the one that flashes the HDD on and off) it was weird, it wasn't outputting video. Restarted it, no video. Then I turned the PS4 on and it was showing video, then turned it off and it went back to X1 and video appeared (phew!) But then this morning the one that the HDD's have been behaving now, suddenly isn't turning the HDD off at all.....sigh...

@Dezzy Amalur...wow...hadn't even heard of that.....now that goes on the must buy pile. R.A. Salvatore? Yes please!

FFXV You know, I love open worlds, I love RPGs, and even I'M getting burned out on the genre. Honestly I still don't get why it sold like it did. It's not FF for those that love FF. And it's too FF for everyone else. No idea how it was such a hit. It was supposed to be a spinoff. It was always supposed to be a spinoff. I fear, now that XIII is the last real FF that will ever exist, dreary as the base game was, and we're stuck with Western gameplay forever more. FF isn't supposed to be action....it's just not FF. I don't mind an awesome action spinoff series, but why FF mainline? What's next, Just Cause 5 is a turn based strategy? Tomb Raider 4 a management sim?

@NEStalgia "Wii U next?"

Nah, that isn't in any way Xbox-related, and besides: I only have 20 games, so I'm hardly the right person to show people what games to play on that system.

I figured, since the OG Xbox is more or less (or legitimately) the spiritual successor of the Dreamcast, it would still be okay to mention it here, and of course I primarily did it, to help out a fellow gamer and Dreamcast owner. Always nice to talk about great classic systems like these.

I'm still amazed at all your bad luck with the consoles and hard drives, though. But the PS4 Pro being a used one might account for some of it. Except for an officially refurbished Dreamcast, I've never bought a second-hand console, and most certainly not from a private seller. Anyway, here's hoping that the universe is going to be more kind to you from now on, since it would seem to me that you've already received more than your fair share.

Another thing that immediately crossed my mind after having read your comment, is:
"what's with you and never having heard of all these Xbox 360 RPG gems?"
First Blue Dragon, now Kingdoms of Amalur?
Man... never figured you wouldn't have heard of these.
Maybe you should also check out the following games,
if you haven't played them (or haven't heard of them) yet:

Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom
Sacred 2: Fallen Angel
Sacred 3
Eternal Sonata
Dragon's Dogma
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen
Resonance of Fate
Two Worlds
Two Worlds II
Divinity 2
Risen
Risen 2: Dark Waters
Star Ocean: The Last Hope
Tales of Vesperia
The Last Remnant

I do believe I've seen you mention those last two somewhere, but I included them anyway, just in case...

But of course, there's more than just RPG's, which is the exact reason that I tagged you in my comment with all the Xbox 360 videos. You might find some other interesting stuff among those as well. And there's quite a few backwards compatible titles mentioned...

@ThanosReXXX Haha, yeah, I realized the DC/XB tie....

Yeah when it comes to hardware I definitely have some dreadful luck. I've bought a few used & refurbished consoles, and that's the first one to give me trouble, so overall it's not such a bad thing...this one...I should have taken it as a sign when it was packed into tons of packing peanuts....... I do have pretty awful hardware luck overall though, it's true. Now you see why those failing PC parts were so expensive! I spent more time fixing my machine than playing it!

You know I really have no idea how I missed all those RPGs! I was starved for RPGs at the time, stalking the release lists, and never noticed a lot of those! And I was more into my 360 at the time than PS3, so there's that, too! Still, I must have had the "RPGs are on Playstation" mindset they cultivated so well.

Cool list, wow! KUF I know from PC...but as an MMO series. I know Sacred. Eternal Sonata I actually have for PS3 though I recall I wasn't too enthused and didn't play it long. Dragon's Dogma (Dark Arisen ver.) I actually got for cheap for X1 back in summer....looks great so far, I started into the beginning.

Resonance of Fate....hmmm, I'm unfamiliar with it, but it looks good. Doesn't look back compat supported, and there's apparently an HD remaster for PS4 and PC. I may have to add that to the list...but for PS4....

Two Worlds...ugh, bad memories....I had that on PC...it ran like garbage, crashed constantly, and felt like a blatant Oblivion clone. I wonder how the console ports fared?

I didn't know a Star Ocean made it to 360! That's such a PS series overall that surprises me. Not back compat, unfortunately but I bet it's better than the last Star Ocean on PS4 that was kinda meh.

Vesperia: Got the HD version preordered for Switch (tempting to put it all on X1 but that kind of game is best on Switch even if it's a 360 exclusive originally.)

Last Remnant: That's the one that they've now pulled from the XB and Steam store and made an HD version just for PS4. Kind of a crummy move by Square, but yea, just bought that one for PS4

That's a cool list though. I think you sold me, ironically, on another PS4 game, Resonance of Fate

@NEStalgia Easy, old FF style becomes Nintendo exclusive meanwhile FFXV style becomes the norm for PS/Xbox. Kind of like what happened with Monster Hunter.

@Grumblevolcano You could say that but Square is hyping old style coming to Switch and X1..... And pushing new style-as-mobile on Switch

I also don't think MH is a lasting situation. New style will come to Switch. Old style exists on Switch only because it's what was available to port fast from 3DS.

@NEStalgia Haha, well, it doesn't ruffle my feathers at all, if you buy it for "that other console",
just thought I'd give you a heads up on other worthwhile RPG's you might have overlooked.

The Xbox 360 Kingdom under Fire game is completely different from all the others, in that they changed it from more turn-based, strategic battle, to a more action RPG-oriented game, which made it less palatable for longtime fans, but more easily digestible for newcomers.

And the Risen games are practically must haves. Besides me thinking they're really good, they also scored pretty good in general. A nine on average, if I remember correctly, so if they ever come to any console, you will probably want to give these a look as well.

Same goes for the Sacred games. Different type of RPG, but pretty solid games, in my opinion.

Oh, and if you have 40 minutes to a small hour to kill, anywhere in the next few days, do give those videos a look over. Would hate for them to be posted for nothing, and who knows what interesting titles you might come across...

@ThanosReXXX I'll have to keep an eye on Risen to see if it pops up as a remaster or BC at some point. I did go ahead and buy Resonance of Fate on PS4 though At least I'm starting to justify buying a replacement console.... finding some weird Japanese games on there I missed over the years.

Meanwhile, yep, following that power outage, on the X1 that's been behaving for months, now the hard drive stays on 24/7. No idea why. It's not even a system wide thing. The X1 that turns the drives on and off does them all simultaneously. This one seems content doing only the one drive.... the other one shuts off. It's certainly a software thing, but I can't imagine what keeps affecting how it handles drives simply due to ripping the power out from under it.

NEStalgia

ThanosReXXX

@NEStalgia Well, if it makes you feel any better, my external drive light has also reverted to its intermittent pattern again, so on for a second or 30 - 40, and then off again, only to repeat itself approximately every hour. And we've had no power outage here...

Risen is a great series, and unfortunately, I never got to finish it, and now I've got such a backlog that it'll probably never happen, unless it does indeed come to Xbox One. With grades as high as it got for all games in the series, and its popularity amongst RPG fans, it would seem very likely that it will come to the BC list at some point, so here's hoping for it to happen. Might inspire me to finally finish the series...

But don't overlook the Sacred series, those are some highly enjoyable dungeon crawlers. I don't know about 2, but I do know that Sacred 3 is backwards compatible.

On a completely unrelated side note:
You'll never guess what news item just fouled up my TV screen in the daily entertainment show that I watch while trying to enjoy my dinner....

Yup. It was the Carlton vs Fortnite case...
Try to guess before you actually reveal the spoiler...

Yet another example of how "brilliantly" fast the world works these days...

He goes after Fortnite (and NBA 2K), yet completely misses Destiny and Forza Horizon 4...

I like how his legal department commented on how they used his “likeness“. There's no skin matching his description.

@NEStalgia It would seem that your PS4 Pro re-purchase is about to grow in personal value even more, seeing as I've found out that the game Risen 3 Titan Lords has already been re-released a couple of years ago as an Enhanced Edition, but only on PS4, so there you go, it wasn't all for nothing...

@DarthNocturnal I do seem to vaguely remember Will Smith calling him a pumpkin-head in one of the many, many episodes. Or I just made that up to at least make some sense of it all...

@DarthNocturnal well of course, go after the biggest and if you win you can shake down everyone else easily

NEStalgia

@ThanosReXXX Huh, interesting, maybe it's not just me then and is coincidental. Three XBoxen, 3 different HDD behaviors..... None of this weirdness happened before that October update with the changes that sped up the My Games page.

Yeah, I always thought of Sacred as "Diablo clones" even on PC and never looked into them, but they do have a good track record.

LOL, I didn't guess before checking the spoiler. That's rediculous! Then again, media just reports whatever is trending on Twitter, so the lowest common denominator of middle school level thinking directs world events...... joy to the world!

LOL, awesome that Risen 3 got ported...though...I wonder if that makes much sense without 1 & 2? Still at least my previously lean PS4 is growing in value again. I kind of didn't like having 3 consoles but only a handful of games to justify the third. Now each has it's own unique library again and the world is in balance Switch for everything I want handheld, Sony for 1st party, Weeb bait, and all the games they paid someone off to take from Nintendo/PC/XBox, and X1X for everything else

@DarthNocturnal I'm still trying to figure out how an actor in a show they don't own, playing a character they don't own, gets to sue someone for using a gesture of the character, and referencing the show gets to sue. Epic probably should be sued, but that would probably be Warner Bros, Comcast-NBC-Universal, or the Borowitz's with rights to do so.....not Ribiero. And that he's claiming that tomato is his likeness.....I mean you can't make this stuff up. I give it 2 days before some organization storms in with racism charges.

NEStalgia

DarthNocturnal

@redd214

I figured it was more like “don't go after anyone until they've made big cash.“ More money made = more money to potentially make in a legal settlement.

@NEStalgia

Can you even sue over dance moves? I mean, I understand wanting acknowledgement of something you did. But it feels like something that would set a bad precedent. We have enough patent trolls. Do we need “human body movement trolls“ too?

And wait, he's claiming that a made-up pizza restaurant mascot is in his “likeness“?!

....if it makes him feel any better, there are those who worship Tomatohead as a deity.
