Invasion 2.0 would be dope, That mode was great in Reach and the maps made for it were great in BTB

I was never a fan of invasion but fuck did I love me some btb. Riding around in the mongoose running people over on Valhalla on halo 3 🤣🤣.

Ehhhh, could be total BS, take with a grain of salt
Stop listening to backlash from the "community" when it comes to things like coating. These aren't even that important, ignore all those people since there will always be something to complain about. Make the game in your vision

Normally I'd agree but their vision with 5 was.... well lets say was just not "it".

By far, Reach is still the best campaign imo.

Normally I'd agree but I understand how people are worried about this. Halo 5 took classic emblems that were in the game since Halo 2 and locked them behind packs.

Was just about to post this


It's not just you but it's (probably) a mistake.

Edit;

Yep


Not long to go anyway!
I presumed it was a mistake; I'm not getting the console 11 days early. With that said, the charge has gone through, so I've paid for it in full - which should only occur when they're preparing to ship it. They're toying with my emotions!

It
Scott Pilgram vs The World?

But thats already been confirmed 🤔
It was 1 vs 100. I posted it yesterday right after he said it, with his direct quote.

It seemed like it was more of an offhand remark on his side because the trivia part of the night failed so badly.

any of you guys use microsoft rewards? if so how likely is it we will get a punch card for pre ordering cyberpunk closer to launch?

It's hard to say. You can pretty much count on EA games being there. Call of Duty has a good chance. Others are hard to predict. You can always wait until the day before release to pre order.

ah ok and yeah i saw the ubisoft one for watch dogs legion and wondered if the cyberpunk one would pop up soon, i guess i can wait and just get another 20+ days of points to use towards it.

I'd say there is a good chance since Xbox has the marketing for it.

Hey everyone, filthy casual here. I know that the backwards compatible games being added were frozen for a time on Xbox One. Has that started up again? Will we see BC games that the Xbox One missed? I do have a few. Not many, but ones I’d love to play again.

They haven't said no, but they also haven't confirmed that they'll continue. I really hope they get back to adding games on a regular basis, if not enhancing them.

Basically it sounds like the BC team are looking into this and may revisit missing OG Xbox and 360 games once they have the Xbox One library complete (sans Kinect of course)

When they announced they were stopping bc to work on Series X they made it sound like work would resume once the new systems were out and more games would be added.

The said they were “pausing” work, not stopping it.

We will see if that happens.

Really hope some of the games come back, While PS does have some amazing classics so does the original xbox which I'd love to see back, best memory was Pandora Tomorrow on Xbox Live, wish it was back with supported online, best atmosphere out of any multiplayer game i've played

Gears Tactics runs at 1440p/60fps on Series S with keyboard/mouse support




PC benchmarks for comparison. Impressive for Series S.

It's so weird all these games with Ray Tracing are coming to a console that GAF told me can't do Ray Tracing
Those that wanted to run those are into a world of hurt soon.

You can’t cry FUD while spreading misinformation.

This is going to be very interesting as the X1X has the same mode and a 4k 30fps mode. Can't wait to see the two matched up and thanks to Gamepass I can!

Not outright, but they've said they plan to keep the game going through a decade of updates and the game is on Xbox One.
I think they said that they want to go on for a decade and somewhere along the way updates would only be for Xbox Series X|S

No different from what Sony " we believe in generations" is doing with their major franchisees.

Interesting. I did try and do a search to double check myself and I couldn't find them saying this, but it's good to hear.

I'm not sure what it has to do with Sony.
