I go unearth my xbox live gold trial card from when I bought the system, ONLY because I noticed Portal was one of the free games, and it won't let me get it for free!

It tries to charge me even though it says it should be free on the previous screen.

@Morpheel It’s because Portal isn’t the free 360 game anymore, it’s Earth Defense Force 2017 now. You were literally just hours (maybe minutes) too late...

@Gerald yeah I remember it being one of the first time witnessing internet outrage on some message board somewhere lol. Couldn't for the life of me figure out how people were getting so upset over a video game and sadly it's still happening these days.

Did anyone else hear that “woosh“ sound?

@redd214 Morpheel also known as Yosheel has never been a reliable source of information.

It is sad how people love, indeed, to overreact on the internet without enough information. The Wind Waker is not my favourite Zelda, I prefer next Zelda game Twilight Princess very much because of the graphics, dungeons, story and gameplay. In spite of that, I didn't agree with the hatred and I got the GameCube Limited Edition (with an extra disc) of The Wind Waker when it launched. It didn't disappoint me.

I’m always never using sarcasm.

Anyway!

@JoakimZ darn! there goes my 14 day trial. Even the desktop site still had the game with a big “free” banner next to the price, too.

@DarthNocturnal So that was that thing I kept hearing

Yeah I don’t know either.

@redd214 I have to confess, that I was disappointed when I first saw screenshots of Wind Waker, but when I see it in motion it grew on me

@Morpheel If it’s any consolation, EDF 2017 is a really fun game! (I’m much happier to get that than Portal, but that’s probably just me...)

Hey everybody, go and download Too Human right now. It will be free to download for a week, and then it will be gone forever (at least digitally).

Seems it also has a free "pre-order" DLC.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts Xbox One X Enhancement Patch is Basically a Free Remaster

https://www.xboxachievements.com/news/news-33103-Banjo-Kazooi...

The commentary is very poor and they don't even know the game but if you watch footage in HD or UHD you can see the difference if you don't have an Xbox One X to see it yourself. If you do just play the game. Yes, you have to have Rare Replay.

My opinion, and the truth in this case, is that this is because of the much more detailed textures in Nuts & Bolts because it's one if not the best-looking 360 game while Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie are originally N64 games. Now the polygons look super sharp in Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie and the characters still look great but, obviously, the N64 textures are low-resolution. On the other hand, the textures are incredibly high-quality in Nuts & Bolts, try Nutty Acres and look everywhere! Obviously, performance is a major improvement too.

@rjejr Good point on the people with D grades becoming doctor. Still, that actually also supports what I said, about them needing to have at least some modicum of intelligence...

I'll see your elaborate answer in that other thread whenever you'll get to it, my friend. At our age, there's really no rush. I do hope that I'll still know what it's about, though...

As for the Pokémon jokes: yeah, I knew there would probably be several, but the bus joke is the only one I know of, personally.

Oh, and don't worry about me snapping @NEStalgia out of existence: my discussions with him can be quite taxing on my patience level sometimes, but in most cases, that's also a matter of me not having a good day, and somehow he often manages to irk me at exactly those times. Come to think of it, that's probably his special ability/gift...

Normally, I'm super-patient, but like all of us, I'm still only human in the end, so even I have my bad days.
And then there's of course the thing about online communication: for me, it always lacks the context of hearing and seeing someone speak, meaning that without those ingredients, stuff sometimes gets lost in translation, or needless arguments arise. And no amount of smileys will help remedy that, unless people are completely crystal clear in their intent. And even then, there's always personal interpretation.

@NEStalgia You're welcome again. I knew your nerdy self wouldn't be able to resist a program that would allow you to tinker with a controller's key bindings...

@BlueOcean Oh wow, that's amazing. One of the things I didn't like when I went to replay Nuts and Bolts was how the game could chug at certain points if there's too much happening on screen. That patch looks like it pretty much fixes that!

@ThanosReXXX If you had to put up with both NES and I in equal amounts you'd always be in a bad mood.

Today is Monday. Do they have that saying over there where Monday's are just, well, Mondays? Meaning bad things happen. Like it's hard to get going. And there are ants everywhere. And garbage piled up form the weekend. And piles of laundry. I know the majority of people are envious that I haven't had a job in 17 years, but really it would be nice sometimes to just wake up and know what I was doing that day, going to work, rather than all the stuff that piled up over the weekend that needs to get done, plus whatever else I need to do. And its now noon and I'm still in my pjs avoiding it all. Well I did have breakfast, but that's about it.

@rjejr Yup, the Dutch most certainly do know about Monday slumps. They also know Garfield over here, so I'd dare to wager a bet that hating Mondays is probably a universal thing...

@PikPi Yes, I have been waiting for the Rare games to be X-enhanced forever and I'm happy that they didn't forget about them.
