I wondered why they focused on Max Payne so much, it's not like it makes any sense to NOT play it on PC, with the trillion mods available.
I guess the same is even more true for Bethesda rpgs.
Probably just some stuff that didn't quite make E3.

The entire 20 year Xbox thing feels a bit random.
I guess they had a cross promotion with Red Notice, someone remember the Rock once unveiled the Xbox and it all started from there.
They had enough to do a 30 minute Xbox tribute video but not quite enough for a full event. Maybe Geoff wants to keep the VGA's clean this year and they couldn't unveil their documentary there.

Because PC gaming is for distinguished mentally-challenged fellows and mods are illegal? Food for thought
Kung Fu mod is worth a couple of years with an ankle monitor.



I can't even imagine Max Payne without it, tbh.

Original Xbox games are also automatically graphically boosted in the BC program. Think they get a 4x pixel boost and 16x AF. They also support HDR, but since it's an AI thing it's hit or miss.

It's still a pretty cool way to play these old games

Monte Gallo will release Jumping Flash!– and Pilot Wings-inspired first-person platformer Forza Polpo in Early Access for PC via Steam on November 24, the developer announced.

The Early Access version of the game will ship with the first half of the game, which is made up of eight zones. The full game will contain at least 16 zones, new enemies and assets, aesthetic upgrades, advanced gameplay mechanics, further language support, and other improvements. The Early Access period is expected to last “around a few months.”

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

    About

    It is the year 199X, and the world has been destroyed like it’s an anime. Use your brave tiny octopus robot to traverse a Japan frozen in time and place to defeat the evil Dr. Prometheus in this 90s-inspired and 2020-made action game full of neon, lasers, and tiny robots.

    Bring back the ’90s! Inspired by the classic 1990s games Jumping Flash! and Pilot Wings, Forza Polpo is a pretty hardcore arcade / simulation / platform game. The world and story are 90s though—with love for the lost decade.

Xbox BC team has always been clear that the games that make the list are not necessarily ones they focused on but ones that happened to work out because of what they had focused on and then they put in the time to polish them off. Now, I'm not saying they didn't focus on Max Payne just that they might not have.

The first two Max Payne's also share the same engine, and Max Payne 3 shares the RAGE engine with other games, the Bethesda games listed also have same engine roots. It's not a surefire method to get games working but it certainly helps get games working when this is the case. (i.e. they get Max Payne 2 working deliberately and Max Payne 1 works like 75% there or something. This tends to be most obvious with UE games.)

RE backwards compatibility and licensing:

I was wondering to myself why the PGR games weren't on the BC programme: MS own the rights/games fully (as far as I am as aware) and they still release licensed racing games like Forza to this day. BUT they also delist them after 4 years because of licensing reasons...

So I went looking, and Ian Bell (Slightly Mad/Project CARS) said in 2018 prestige licenses can cost $100k+, AND a revenue cut.

So I think the PGR games will forever be stuck on the older systems (and the older Forza's, and other old beloved racing games...) as the initial licensing hurdle is probably just too big, especially for 4x PGR games.

In summary: Fuck car manufacturers, buy a bike.   :juche

Looks much higher quality than the nickelodeon one.
Animations and designs looks great.
Interesting to see Arya, since it means adapting live action WB characters is a possibility, they could have Neo and shit.

Been looking at PC audio options to replace my broken Z5500.

Most PC speakers suck, it's either only 2.0 or 2.1 or some 'gamer' shit with no bass and an RGB light.
Soundbars seem like an interesting option but now I'm kinda torn between the LG SP8, DS7 or SN4.

The SN4 is the cheapest at 99 which seems adequate for a soundbar, it lacks real DTS:X though, only comes with DTS Virtual:X.
The DS7 doesn't have a seperate subwoofer and I think it would lack the bass I want. It has DTS:X / Atmos.

There's now a Black Friday Deal for the SP8 which slashes the price from 699 to 329.
It has all the bells and whistles like a seperate subwoofer and DTS:X / Atmos. But I feel like this is more something suited to put under my TV.
Admittedly it would be fitting to replace my Sony 5.1 Home Cinema set from 2011 but that would still leave me without a PC speaker set-up.  :doge

A Note from the Rockstar Games Team RE: Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition
November 19, 2021

Hi everyone,

We want to provide an update regarding the unexpected technical issues that came to light as part of the launch of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition.

Firstly, we want to sincerely apologize to everyone who has encountered issues playing these games.

The Grand Theft Auto series — and the games that make up this iconic trilogy — are as special to us as we know they are to fans around the world. The updated versions of these classic games did not launch in a state that meets our own standards of quality, or the standards our fans have come to expect.

We have ongoing plans to address the technical issues and to improve each game going forward. With each planned update, the games will reach the level of quality that they deserve to be.

A new Title Update is on the way in the coming days for all versions of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition that will address a number of issues. We will update everyone as soon as it is live.

In the meantime, it pains us to mention that we are hearing reports of members of the development teams being harassed on social media. We would kindly ask our community to please maintain a respectful and civil discourse around this release as we work through these issues.

While one of the goals of the Definitive Editions was to allow players to enjoy these games on modern platforms for many years to come, we also understand that some of you would still like to have the previous classic versions available for purchase.

We will be adding the classic PC versions of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas back to the Rockstar Store shortly as a bundle. Additionally, everyone who has purchased Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition for PC from the Rockstar Store through June 30, 2022, will receive these classic versions in their Rockstar Games Launcher library at no additional cost. We will update everyone as soon as these are back in the Rockstar Store.

Once again, we'd like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding while we work through these updates to ensure these games meet everyone's justifiably high standards.

Sincerely,
Rockstar Games

This video convinced me to get the Edifier speakers for my PC over the Razer Nommo.


Might also snag the soundbar for the TV as it seems like a massive upgrade from my 2011 Sony Blu-Ray 5.1 Home Cinema set.

How can there be such enormous "unexpected technical issues"?

A simple QA check would have been enough to pick this shit up. So either they knew about the issues and choose not to fix them or they didn't do any QA.

Fucking hacks. After the shitshow that RDR2's controls were, I can't believe anyone bothers with their games.

I suspect you were being sarcastic, which rarely  conveys itself successfully in text, but it is never fucking OK to go after the development team on social media. Talk to tech-support, write to sales and marketing, or write the CEO or something. I guarantee you these devs did the best job that they were allowed to do in the amount of time they had, and going after them is a bitch-made move.

I completely agree with you about the harassment part, but this recent taboo about the possibility of someone in game development being lazy or incompetent, when it's a possibility in every other aspect of life and profession, is a silly over correction.
But I know gamers are in large part men children that throw tantrums for every little thing, so I can understand where it's coming from.
Still, if an incompetent plumber can exist, so can a developer.

Though even in a scenario where a team doesn't have the expertise for the task they're given, the problem lies within whoever decided to hire on the cheap.

The main issue is that publishers like EA and Take2 are acting like 'uguuu we are a poor indie dev :uguu please be patient while we fix our passion project'
All while raking in billions of dollars with cosmetics and loot boxes and releasing fundamentally broken products.

It's like if Ford or Volkswagen would release a car with no windshield, no brakes, no doors and a leaking gas tank and then write an apology letter in their 'brand' to explain they hadn't noticed those faults.
Or if Villeneuve would not have dropped Dune: Part 1 but 1/8 of the movie shot with half the special effects missing and then a message plays about how much he appreciates the fans and that's he's totally excited for the roadmap to make the rest of the film.

With the remasters it's even more mind boggling, considering the original product already exists. With GTA you can tell the game is a pile of garbage moments after you boot it up and a remaster of a 20 year old game is hardly what one would describe as ambitious or difficult. With Battlefield games it's just a repetition of the same bugs over and over again. The same set of tools (Frostbite 3) they've been using since 2013 still don't work.

I guess the makers of Paradise Killer are working on something new.


For anyone who hasn't played it, it's an open-world, vaporwave-backed murder mystery with some bonkers/fun worldbuilding. It's got a ton of interesting collectables and plays like this amazing, slow-paced Dreamcast platformer set to really fucking good music.

Watched the Xbox thing it was fun to watch Peter Moore explain our mixed reality future and 'by the way, we just bought Peter Jackson's group'.
He was the most excited about the whole thing. As was Robbie Bach as he's just writing books and messing around and clearly never understood anything that they were doing in terms of technology anyway.

Bonnie Ross is on the way out I think, she didn't seem to care much.
Reggie was an OK host I guess, but was mostly saved by Peter Moore and Robbie Bach who kept it going.
Bach basically took over moderation at the end :lol

where the fuck is molyneux?
They were already sort of 'steamed hamburgers' awkward at times considering some of them didn't leave Microsoft on the best of terms.

Yeah that should run almost everything you can throw at it at 1440p


You might want a bit more RAM to play with in the long run but those are solid specs.

I see Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is finally on-sale, but it's still over $40 which is a lot.

If I want a modern X-men game is it good for that? Also do these games play like Musou/DW games but overhead?

So, I dived in on a gaming laptop. Picking it up this afternoon.

It's been a while since I played games on a PC. Aside from the obligatory Steam account (which I have), what do I need to get?

I have an 8bitdo Pro2 controller.
I have a decent keyboard.
