EA aren't all bad. They just make money grubbing decisions because they saw how rich Rockstar were getting with GTA Online and keep trying to copy them to disastrous results.

That's how I see it, anyway.

@redd214 Yeah, got quite a few of these NFS games myself, albeit only on the previous gen console. And only because they're more or less the spiritual successors to the Burnout games, and because I always liked the old NFS games, from back in the PC and GameCube days.

I also used to play a lot of their other games, like the James Bond games, Medal of Honor, Dead Space, Battlefield, Dragon Age, and so on, but the latter more because of Bioware than because of EA.
And I always loved the SSX games, so I've got all of those as well, but this generation, I still haven't invested in any EA games so far.

@redd214 Considering how Destiny 1 had content cut to sell later, and The Division was raked over the coals for its early performance, and both games saw a sharp drop in players until their first major expansions, I think the criticism Anthem's garnered is warranted. It wasn't acceptable back them, it's not acceptable now. They shunted it out the door to bolster their fiscal year-end reports, and get a boost to their EA Origins Access subscriber numbers. Looking at their post-launch plans, in 6 months to a year, it'll be at the point it needed to be at launch, just like Destiny 1. At the very least, there's no need for anyone interested to purchase the game now.

@ThanosReXXX Nah, I don't hate all EA games, I just hate EA (and the fact that they almost never produce actual games anymore....) I actually quite like many of EA's actual games they used to make, and that's what frustrates me about them. They have a stable of great IPs and some fantastic games in their legacy....and they mostly just refuse to make them, and on the off chance they do they just use it as a carrot on a stick for micropayments. Mirror's Edge, C&C, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Dungeon Keeper (Molyneaux, though, that's another can of worms ) lots of good stuff....that never sees the light of day. Or at least not properly buried in their dreadful business practices.

@redd214 That does sound disappointing. I believed them at the Bioware E3 roundtable when they talked about commitment to story, single player experience, blah blah. "It's still a Bioware game!" riiight. I knew it was just going to be EA's Destiny (fun timing as Activision jettisons their Destiny... ) but a kind of samey looter shooter still sounds a bit disappointing (I actually preordered this ages ago despite my hesitations.)

@DarkRula Nah, EA went down that path long before GTAV:O. If anything Rockstar copied them but managed to not break it like they do.

@ThanosReXXX yeah if there is one series I'm a sucker for its definitely need for speed. In the 20 or so years they've been coming out I think I've only not played 1 or 2 of them (not including mobile/handheld ones). Hot pursuit 2 back in the ps2/gamecube/Xbox days is in my top 5 all time games list. Shame they've haven't recaptured the magic from HP2, Most Wanted and the Underground games.

@CanisWolfred I was there at launch for both Destiny and the Division so I know what I'm getting into

@NEStalgia while I do think the core gameplay mechanics are better than either of those were at launch, anyone going in expecting a early GOTY candidate will be put off by it. Like I said I'm not going in blind probably have 20 hours put into it between the demos so I have my expectations in check and am looking forward to it.

Given we don't have any future release dates, I wonder if next month's Inside Xbox will be a big one.

If it's early in the month, the next Forza Horizon 4 expansion will definitely be there.

@NEStalgia Well, you never guessed what happened to me:
For the first time EVER, I actually managed to damage an Xbox 360 controller, namely the wired one that
I use when playing Pro Evo Soccer on the PC. I apparently pressed the right bumper a bit too hard in my
anxiety to keep my player running/sprinting past his opponents, and I felt a little snap inside the controller housing, and now the right bumper is hanging loose inside the controller's casing...

Was quite a nasty surprise to me, since that has never happened before, and I've quite frequently used the sprint function in the game, so it's not like I did something to the controller that I've never done before.

Oh, well. There's probably an option to buy a replacement part somewhere, so all in all, not too much of a problem, but nonetheless weird that it happened so suddenly...

@ThanosReXXX Congrats! Welcome to the club!

Technically it probably didn't break all at once....it was probably weakening bit by bit all the other times and finally gave way. It's more infamous on the Elite because of the heavy aluminum bumper buttons, but yeah, the plastic bridge joining the bumpers is an infamously failure prone part. I told you I wasn't making this stuff up

You should be able to find a replacement part easy enough since the Elites lose a lot of bridges, and I think it's the same part. Just search for Elite bumper repairs if you're having a hard time finding it. It should work for both

That's less awful than stick drift since the stick can't be replaced without soldering a new POT module on.

I would like to ask you something.

How would you feel if at E3 2019, you learn that you could play Nintendo games on an XBOX system ?

Great news ? Bad News ?

Let me know guys.

In what universe would an Xbox player think Nintendo games is bad news.

Now, if you ask this on the switch thread, then maybe that would be amusing.

Edited on by Morpheel

Yeah I don’t know either.

I'd think that some Xbox owners that don't own a Nintendo system, but would like to play their games, would really like that, but for me, as a multi-platform owner, playing my Nintendo games on anything other than an actual Nintendo system, would feel kinda strange or off, because it's all about the controls as well, and Nintendo has a knack for combining both gameplay and controls into one complete experience, one that you can only find on Nintendo's systems, so playing that on another system would seem weird to me.

But that's just my opinion on the matter...

Would be fine by me. Granted I personally wouldn't play Nintendo games on an Xbox but the masterpieces they make should be played by as many as possible so I wouldn't consider it "bad news" at all.

@ThanosReXXX has it right. Imo no company has ever been better at meshing hardware/software better than the big N.

Microsoft is Almost NEVER know about Cutesy games.
If it does, it looks like put some Hello Kitty tatoos on OMG HD Realistic looking characters from adult games.
Not a good chemistry.

Nintendo games on Xbox machine = Home Console only, No Portability. Not good....

"but for me, as a multi-platform owner,"

But....
You don't play any Sony machines (PS1, PS2, PS3, PS4, PSP, PS vita), right ? 😛

I don't really consider Super Lucky's Tail as “OMG HD Realistic“. Same with Ori and Cuphead (although they were developed by other studios. Of course, MS struck a distribution deal with both, so they clearly saw merit in them).

Hopefully we get a new Banjo before too long. Developed by Rare or no.

@Anti-Matter And what exactly do you think that multi-platform owner means? I have nearly all Nintendo consoles and handhelds, a Sega Dreamcast, an Xbox 360, an Xbox One S and I also play games on PC.

Just because someone doesn't have any Sony consoles, doesn't mean he or she isn't a multi-platform gamer...

@redd214 That's also because of their philosophy of first creating games and/or experiences, and then, and ONLY then, figuring out what kind of hardware they will need, to realize/achieve that idea, so the hardware is specifically built around, and tailored to the games. And that for me, would create a disconnect, when playing them on another platform, especially with other controllers.

Both Sony and Microsoft always just go for a huge sandbox full of room and power, that isn't specifically related to any single game, and instead they just come up with a minimum and a maximum target, and the hardware needs to be able to cater to everything, or at least most things. This often times comes from them talking to developers, who tell them what they need. Both philosophies have their pros and cons, but personally, I like Nintendo's better, because it creates a complete experience, whereas any of the games on both of the other consoles could be played on either of them without losing any of the original intent of those games.

It has always been a part of Nintendo's philosophy in general, but Iwata and Miyamoto put even more emphasis on it, and it really shows, ever since the birth of the GameCube.

@DarthNocturnal He literally hasn't got a clue, he's just prejudiced.
