They are what they are at this point, they've nailed the game play for the type of game they're going for. At least with Horizon you have a completely new area with every new game. I think MS has realised that churning out a new version every two years has diminishing returns. I wouldn't be surprised if they go for more of a gaas model for forza 8 tbh.

The ones this gen have had some microtransaction and loot box nastiness in them, but I think the paid stuff has been patched out of 7 now.

Forza 7 looks pretty fucking nice on xbox one x though :drool

I liked the demo of Ikenfell. Seemed like a neat little indie rpg that used srpg elements in the battle system and had good spritework.
Could be boring though.

As a PC person I guess I'll try Forza 7? Never liked a non-Horizon Forza game before but I'll keep giving them shots for free. I like GT games when they have decent campaigns so theoretically I should like Forza but it's never clicked. Horizon games are great.

Will play Doom Eternal when it gets on PC eventually. The delay apparently is because they don't even have a workable Windows Store PC version lol and have to create one to get it on gamepass. Windows Store is so terrible.

Ikenfell's busted on PC. Game won't even boot. Streets of Rage 4 all over again.

I've noticed that 2d titles on PC Game Pass seem to have issues about 1/4th of the time. 3d games almost never have any problems. Something about how Windows Store wrapper works with Unity or other 2d engines just fucks them up. Pretty shitty.

It's weird how they can release games on Game Pass PC that won't even boot and work for anyone. It's like there is zero QA for Game Pass PC testing these games before they put them up. Weird.

Guess another reason to get a Series S/X is to actually have a Game Pass where all the games work.

Quantum Break is pretty slick! I'm really enjoying the narrative and the tv show is fun. Love the graphical effects and sci-fi hokum. The live action kung Fu is a bit crappy but the production values of the show are otherwise pretty impressive. A lot of beautiful people, the main guy is pretty handsome. The hacker/surveillance expert dude is pretty funny, good actor. Looking forward to smashing through this! Looks like an easy 1000/1000 too, I am playing on Hard mode because I are good @ video game

I wouldn’t expect either on game pass for 6 months at least (a year more likely), unless Microsoft buys out either 2k or whoever the fuck makes ride before then :yeshrug

I was just itching for a bike racer, and Milestone's been pretty good in the past (plus, a bit of nationalistic bias.   ;)) But yeah looking at the steam reviews, it seems like it needs a patch or two.

So I did some testing on PC and figured out a bunch of stuff.

Basically Ikenfell wasn't booting and it was for other people. I noticed when I'd boot it the lights would turn on my Dual Shock 4 controller meaning it was activating. So I tried unplugging my DS4 which was plugged in via USB. And the game boots fine. But if I plug the DS4 in at any time the game instantly crashes weird.

I tried hooking my DS4 up via Bluetooth and the game runs fine but my DS4 doesn't work right in BT for whatever reason with lags and disconnects which is why I play it wired. So essentially having a wired controller in the USB port crashes Ikenfell.

So I tried my 8bitdo SN30+ controller that I use on Switch as my Pro Controller. Never tried it on PC before but it has PC Bluetooth. So I linked it up and it works and Ikenfell boots and the controller works perfect with no lag or disconnects. Cool.

Then while I had the controller in, I tried a few other 2d games with it and like Touhou Luna Nights suddenly was running at 5fps unplayable with the 8bitdo BT controller. But then I disconnect that and hook up the DS4 via USB and the game runs perfect. Again, weird.

Also I noticed when running Touhou Luna Nights that the game in fullscreen wouldn't stutter non-stop and be unplayable. Certain 2d games I used to have to all run in a window because they would do that in fullscreen. I tested some other games that did that like World of Horror and same thing, all working fine in fullscreen now  :o

So I thought maybe they FINALLY patched some of the windows store wrapper issues, so I tried some of the games that had the "d-pad doesn't register diagonals" issue which made them basically unplayable. First I tried Streets of Rage 4, which at launch wouldn't even boot 90% of the time and when it did boot diagonals wouldn't register so I ended up buying it on steam.

Works perfect now. Could've saved me that $15-20 on Steam, but oh well it's a good game I don't mind supporting the devs.

I thought maybe they just patched SoR4, so I tested Marvel v Capcom Infinite which I'm sure Capcom hasn't bothered patching anytime recently and that also used to have the no diagonals on d-pad which is impossible for a fighter where you need to jump forward/backwards.

Diagonals work perfect now on the d-pad  :o

So it seems to me they did finally patch the windows store wrapper and fix the fullscreen stuttering and d-pad diagonals not registering issues, which is huge. It means that basically every game on the Game Pass list for PC now actually works 100% outside Ikenfell's weird bug where the game doesn't work with a controller plugged into the USB port but you can get around that with Bluetooth.

Note that none of this stuff seems to happen with any other store front like Steam/Epic. Windows Store  :doge

Also it's 2020 and PC gaming is still "spend hours monkeying around to try to diagnose issues and get things running right" for a lot of games. There's definitely an argument for consoles and saving time in life  :brain

Do you use a Dual Shock 4?

The issues seem mostly related to that controller support.

No, 360 and now Xbone controllers. I have a bunch that use DirectInput as well, but I haven't had any issues with them. But then I also haven't used them in a long time.  :thinking

Now I'm curious if using Steam to handle inputs (or any DirectInput to XInput wrapper) would have solved your issues as well.

Yeah, I've sorta assumed it's my fault for using a Sony controller on an Xbox ecosystem, but like 50% of the stuff I play on PC are d-pad based and DS4's my favorite d-pad. Haven't used a Xbox controller since the X360, which I did used to use as my PC controller since DS3 never worked right on PC until DS4.

I was using a wrapper though. No store other than Steam has built in DS4 support, so I have to use DS4Windows. Which works fine in every store except for Game Pass where it had issues.

That being said, like I said it looks like they fixed whatever was wrong with the Windows Store wrapper + Directinput on a handful of games. Right now DS4 works fine on everything except Ikenfell which is game specific.

Ikenfell just hates the Playstation controller. After more testing I discovered that even if you have the DS4 running non-wired through BT and directinput the Ikenfell won't boot/will crash. But any other controller doesn't cause that. Something about the DS4 just destroys Ikenfell. Never seen anything like that in any other game.

Good to know though. I plan on getting a gyro capable controller to screw around with (and use with emulation). I was aiming for a DS4 (or 5), but maybe I have to do more research.

Tried out Forza 7, I like it. Probably one of, if not, the best looking racers I've seen. The lighting, the reflections (drivers view reflections on interior window), the night -> day changing, rain effects, etc... with good looking tracks and colorful and sharp looking cars. At 72fps+/4k it's a heck of a looker.

Played a couple hours until the game crashed when loading an event.

Forza is pretty cool, but a couple things it needs at some point in comparison to GT is the career mode is zzz, I swear best sim-lite racer career mode is still the first few GTs where they were car rpgs and you spent hours driving around a little dinky car and tuning it up and noticing the improvements, passing license tests and working your way up to supercars.

and the other thing is for whatever reason, the replays in Forza are boring as shit. Game looks amazing playing it but zzz in replays. Whereas the replays in GT have always looked like gorgeous art.

Forza also needs to get rid of the stupid unskippable cutscenes everywhere masking loading, but hopefully F8 lets them do that.

Katana Zero seems pretty good.

Tried out Vesperia for nostalgia-sake and still looks pretty nice. Yuri's movement speed in the city maps is slooooooooooooooooooow though. Doubt I'd ever replay it, but cool get.
