Y’all, I just realized I can stream my X1 to my Windows 10 work laptop since IT is having me do field tests (and it’s wide open for now). Is it pretty simple to get rolling?
And are there other devices I can second-screen it as well?

@HobbitGamer It should be simple, so long as your X1 is in "Rapid Start" and not "Power Saving" mode (I.E. it's always listening to XBL to see if you're sending the power-on signal.) The client is built right into Win10. Even Server editions. Even Enterprise editions. Which is hilarious.

There's an iOS and Android app but Win10 is best

@NEStalgia Okay, then I’ll certainly need to change my power settings, thanks for that.

So it sounds like I’d not want to use my gen1 IPad, right?😂

@Grumblevolcano

I genuinely forgot Gears Tactics existed! Lol. Does it have a release date?

Don't think so, @Dezzy .... It's supposed to be this year but I think it'll be delayed a bit

I bought Forza Horizon 2 physical for my brother for Xbox One because, Xbox Store says Forza Horizon 2 is "unavailable". Can I assume the game will still get the previously issued bug-fix-patches for the base game when the game is installed?

I assume expansion packs are no longer available.
(He's already played through Horizon 3 & 4).

@Woomy_NNYes Yes, all patches/bug fixes are still avaliable, but the expansions are unfortunately not because of expired licenses. Same reason the game is not available to purchase digitally anymore.

@JoakimZ Ohhhhh, that's why. I understand. Well, I've never understood what car brands are afraid of with video games. I can't say I've heard of this issue with movies. It's like James Bond movies being discontinued because of Aston Martin licnensing -never going to happen.

@Woomy_NNYes It's not just the car licences, but the licences for music as well, which are more likely to cause problems than those of the car licences.

@Woomy_NNYes @DarkRula I think this is moreso on Microsoft than the car/music companies. It seems as though the licensing agreements that they have in place are very very short compared to others (designed obsolescence I guess.) For example Need for Speed Rivals was a launch game, has licensed cars and music but is still on sale. Grant Horizon has more of both but still seems as the blame falls on MS here.

The later OutRun games had similar short “shelf“ lives, and they only had one car license (Ferrari). And no licensed music that I know of.

I guess Sega and MS like to operate in the “short“ term with things like this.

Hate to double post, but don't forget Halo: Reach is coming to MCC tomorrow. Multiplayer is free, campaign and firefight are sold for about $10 USD (although if you have Game Pass, that works too).

New games coming this month to Game Pass:

•My Friend Pedro
•Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker
•Demon's Tilt
•Wandersong
•eFootball PES 2020
•Overcooked! 2
•Pathologic 2
•Tom Clancy’s The Division

Only played Overcooked 2 and The Division, both terrific games. Though at this point may as well get Division 2 as it's better in just about every way and can be had for under 20 bucks.

Also another new sub $1 promo, 3 months of Ultimate, 3 months of Discord Nitro, 1 month of EA access and 6 months of Spotify Premium! That's a ridiculous amount of value for a dollar. I may sub on an alternate Email just for Spotify lol

I remember. My brother's always terrible at remembering to buy Christmas presents, so I'm just gonna tell him he can buy a digital thing on the 25th and ask for Halo Reach

Control is coming to Game Pass as well according to Uncle Phil.

Hes also, more interestingly, mentioned that he now has a Scarlett at home and seems to be a smooth transition with games/accessories. Hopefully the other players follow suit in that regard!

DarthNocturnal

Sheesh, they keep adding all the stuff I want. At least it means I can play while waiting for the rock-bottom sales to happen. Same with Outer Worlds.

I'm reading that Untitled Goose Game is coming soon (17th of this month), and that Bayonetta and Vanquish are getting XB1 remasters, due for release in February.
