    X019, Huge Xbox Reveal Event in case you missed it - RIP Switch

    Sike.

    Did this image give you a brain hemorrhage yet?


    Before going into the reveals (source), I want to remind you of this one, key phrase:
    "Xbox One X - the world's most powerful console."

    You got that? Because it's going to be important later.



    Age of Empires IV

    Remember Dawn of War 3? Neither did Microsoft.

    But really, thank christ it's medieval.


    Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition
    "A remaster of a 20 year old game is literally the best thing we have to offer right now."
    Really, though, it 100% is the best thing they have to show, and you can buy it on Steam instead.


    Soak these two in, because it only goes downhill from here.


    The Artful Escape by, I dunno, some hipsters, probably.
    Play as an androgynous guitarist in a side scroller. Couldn't do that on an Xbox 360, no sir.


    Bleeding Edge[lord] by Ninja Theory

    Brought to you by TikTok, an entire generation of human butt plugs who think "Okay, Boomer" was actually clever, Xanax, and the makers of magenta and cyan hair dyes.

    It's a co-op fighter, kind of like For Honor, except without the cool setting, the armies fighting alongside you, a cast of pathetic, woke degenerates that only the target audience of this game could find appealing, and wacky, edgelord style that makes Rage 2 look like it's a powerpoint presentation at a Fortune 505 company.


    CrossfireX
    Remember DMX? Well, don't let his soothing vocals cajole you into forgetting that this is another PC side dish shooter with a base premise so generic that they're having Remedy write up a story after the game's already been out.

    *Oh, get it! Crossfire, then X, like a Cros-wait a minute... *googles*

    Okay, so X is the Greek letter replacing the word "Kris-," so the game is... CrossfireKris? I dunno, still sounds more like a cheap Motorcross game you'd see taped to practically a bottle of Windex at Walmart just to offload stock.


    Everwild by Rare

    What the hell is it? PETA Elf simulator? Discount Breath of the Wild? Nobody knows.


    Grounded by Obsidian (yeah, that Obsidian

    Because only Microsoft would purchase Obsidian, developers of Fallout New Vegas and The Outer Worlds, and have them make a survival game.

    Wasn't there some CGI animated movie where a kid was shrunk down to the size of ants? Yeah, there was, and it was in 2006. So I guess, that but also a survival game. Because the world has waited with bated breath for another one of these, right?

    Drake Hollow
    Hey, did you want a 4 player, survival co-op game, except now you play as a sh*tty cartoon? For real, this looks like it's' encroaching on Obsidian's territory with their GreatValue A Bug's Life game.

    Flight Simulator
    At this point you'd pay to virtually fly yourself into the ocean.


    Halo: Reach for the Halo: The Master Chief Collection: The Unf*ckening - PC Edition
    No point in posting even a link to a video when this is just a remaster of a remaster because they cocked up so badly the first time. The only thing for certain is the price is reasonable - as it should be for an old game, but for all we know, the PC version will trigger a Windows update or something.

    ID@Xbox
    Sorry, not iD, as in the cool developer who made Doom. Just a bunch of indie games you might already own from Humble Bundles featuring far better games. Either way, you've probably already played something close enough back when games were rubbish because that was the limit of technology at the time.

    KartRacer

    No exaggeration: A Korean, Free-to-Play, bargain bin Mario Kart.

    Doesn't Microsoft own the Banjo Kazooie license? Why haven't they at least shoved out a name brand kart racer with that in the vein of Diddy Kong Racing? I swear, this is like telling everyone you really had a bad dragon dildo lodged up your ass the whole time during a gender reveal party.


    Kingdom Hearts
    You played KH3, now play the other games on Xbox and realize that you still have no idea what the hell is going on.


    Last Stop
    From 505 Games, the makers of Abzu, Babysitting Mama, Cooking Mama... um, a bunch of other rubbish.


    Minecraft Dungeons
    I sh*t you not, the trailer is literally just the name with some little cube twat bouncing around. So hell if I know what it is.

    And Minecraft: World
    Because "why not, we're drunk."


    Planet Coaster
    "No seriously, we are that desperate. We would announce a sequel to Chex Quest for god's sake."
    Why would anyone prefer to play this on a console? That's like trying to eat soup with chopsticks.


    Project XCloud
    Pay Microsoft to play their games on Android, you computer, maybe even iOS... anything so you don't actually have to buy a Mountain Dew Box.


    Rust
    Remember Rust? That unoptimized, open world, survival, POS game that's been out for ages on the PC? Well, now the consoles get to experience this dreck.


    Sea of Thieves Update - The Seabound Soul
    Yeah, we're scrapping the barnacle coated bottom of the barrel here, but yeah, there's an update for this game, and I'm sure that your 7 year old niece will be ecstatic.


    Jedi: Fallen Order
    Microsoft, this game released days after this reveal, and it's multiplatform. Now you're just filling up slots trying to make it look like 95% of the reveals don't look like they were scraped out of the Wii-U bargain bin.


    Tell Me Why by DontNod
    First you played as an angsty teenage girl, then you played as a vampyre, now play as a trap!


    Wasteland 3
    Even though no one with just an Xbone has played Wastelands 1 and 2 on the PC.


    West of Dead
    Not as catchy as Red Dead Redemption, but at least you could practically run this off your phone.


    Xbox Flash Sale + Xbox Game Pass
    Because after this announcement, what other than the devil himself would compel you to pay full price for anything Xbox?



    Microsoft:
    "Xbox One X - the world's most powerful console."

    Xbox One Games:
    Running off themagnificent power of the Chinese Kitendo Click from AliExpress.

    Bravo, Microsoft. Bravo. At least it fits with the theme of Project XCloud and Game Pass:
    There really is no point in buying a physical Xbox.
    I will stand firm, I refuse to kneel - The fury in me is divine
    My dark grave awaits, my fate is revealed - But I'm not afraid to die

    I've been an Xbox loyalist since it came out and chose the one over the PS4 and even I can admit that Microsoft dropped the ball this gen. Their FP exclusives are a joke and their two big hitters (halo and gears) are past their primes, which is a shame because they're the reason I stuck with it.

    At this point I'm extremely skeptical of their new console and its hard not to choose the PS5 with GOW and LOU being the gaming pinnacle they are. I hope Microsoft surprises because I would like to not lose all my achievements but I guess I can always buy their console on sale later on.

    I bought an xbox one for MCC. It didn't work properly for like 4 years. I packed it away. Litterally the most useless console I've ever owned. The were so busy trying to integrate a console with a cable box that they forgot to support their own exclusives. They forgot that people buy halo for local co-op as well.

    ^Funny you should say that...

    Additional and rather timely, recently released Xbox Elite Controller Series 2 experiencing issues (already):

    - Sticky, unresponsive buttons
    - Connectivity issues via bluetooth and Windows wireless connection
    - Thumbstick drifting
    - New rubberized grip causing some to experience sweating/itching

    Being in the market for a new controller, this was kind of a relief to both me and my wallet considering the Elite Series 2 costs one hundred and eighty dollars. Had it not been for the original Xbox Elite controller being a total bust in the literal sense of the word, their timing of the release is very odd because it is designed to be compatible with their next gen console, while being an extremely pricey investment ahead of new hardware that could potentially come equipped with an upgraded default controller.


    I say that because the PS5's controller has already hinted at its own next gen upgrades, alongside a recently leaked patent:
    Spoiler!


    Now, I have never liked Sony's controllers and will always prefer the asymmetrical analog sticks, I think they might have resolved a key issue by expanding the width on the grips so that it is actually comfortable to hold. I recently found an old PS3 controller and realized that the main design flaw in them is how they have next to zero girth, so anyone with reasonably sized hands can go so far as to touch thumbs far too easily.

    Feature-wise, the addition of "adaptive triggers" that can simulate different actions with varying resistance is the most interesting addition, and let's just say immersion features like that are the new thing for consoles; How well does the Elite Series 2 with its exorbitant price match up to Sony's regular controller? And what then? Is there going to be an Elite Series 3, that is a potential hat trick in the borked hardware department, while costing a large chunk of the cost to buy an entire console?

    I could see reworking the original so that it doesn't bloody break so easily, lowering the price a bit, wrapping up the Xbone with that, and making way for a true "Series 2" designed for "Scarlett."

    A couple of those games would be a nightmare without special controllers in their own right, or at least be very dumbed down to fit everything.

    Hell, even the regular Xbox controller would probably be awful for some platformers because the D-Pad can be iffy depending on what you're playing.

    Seriously, the only way I'm blown away is that MS actually thought this constituted as a huge reveal. After making headlines over all of the developers they bought out, it's looking more like a gigantic tragedy since their talents are being wasted on all of this rubbish.

    It's both the lack of creativity and pride in that which irks me. They could at least take some pride in coming up with something original,

    But that's specifically being aimed at the gen z fortnite, x6sixanxa twats who in their infinite absence of wisdom don't realize that their own generation is called zoomers.


    Back to Xbox, I double checked and didn't see Tunic mentioned anywhere during this X019 conference, with the most recent results dating back to 2018. Which is really weird, because that legitimately looks better than anything they announced insofar as new IPs.

    I don't know how they did it, but all of those games just look cheap, like they were scrambled together for an indie bundle sale. And the thing about consoles is that they're supposed to be a budget friendly option for play games they can't play on the PC, which all of those games look like a pretty moderate computer could handle with next to no loss in visual fidelity (since there was so little to begin with).

    Given the choice, I'd much rather buy a Nintendo system since at least their games have a level of quality

    Very true. I remember back on the Xbox 360 when they retired the original UI for the move to their knockoff Miis, and knew it was only going to get worse from there.

    The Xbox One is kind of funny in that MS tried to do what Sony did with the PS3 by making it the cheapest Blu-Ray player on the market, now with 4k. Except how many people even buy movies on disc anymore, especially for such outrageous prices? Sony probably made out more on the patents combined with the production savings, winning again because they actually had games this time around to draw people in rather than gimmicks.

    As for MCC, the price is reasonable, sure, but there is no way I would buy that sight unseen given the notoriety behind it, which has certainly not been unnoticed by the majority of people they're trying to win over given how long it's been.

    theyve been lookin to get out of the biz i think since the xbone was so heavily marketed as sort of an all in one ht pc? like you could plug your coax into it and was gonna be amazing somehow.

    i was a xbox fanboy comin up in the days of Halo CE dormroom lan parties. i bought the 360 and the xbone, but im excited to never buy another xbox and go back to PS. i rate the ps2 possibly the greatest console of its day, too many titles to name. and im a soyboi nintendo phaggot as well.
    if we do this theres gonna be two hits. me hittin you, and kid rock's bawitaba playin in the background

    Ehhh I dunno ... Wait till the middle of next gen, when Obisidian, Ninja Theory have their games up and running out of the oven. I think we're in for a pleasant surprise. Microsoft is pulling all the right strings right now. Very keen for their next gen showcases.

    Here's the problem:
    The average person is going to own one or the other - not both.
    And most people are already way too far invested in PS exclusives to just ditch it and miss sequels to their favorite games because Xbox might get a few decent exclusives at some point...
    Example: There's not a single exclusive you could tell me Xbox is getting (or might get) that I care enough about to ditch PS and not be able to play a future Uncharted game on PS. (Just an example. That list goes on and on for me.)

    - it's a developed entirely by 1 person
    - microsoft scouted him, told him "take as much time as you want, we just want a 10/10 game"
    - isn't as stressed about funding now that microsoft gave him a boost

    Just a follow-up to elucidate anyone still excited for the upcoming Halo: Reach-Around... you might want to temper your expectations for release (again):

    343 Industry Dev Blog, November 15th:
    - Push to Talk

    "Last week we talked slightly about this and that we were investigating a solution. Work on this feature is already underway."
    - V-Sync
    "... We believe to have fixed this issue and will discuss it more again in the future."

    - Getting Stuck in Menus / Misc. Crashes
    "We believe the known issues reported during the flight have been fixed for launch."

    -Input Delay Issues
    "The team is currently investigating and iterating on multiple ways to address player feedback and improve mouse and keyboard input between now and launch. "

    - Controller Aim Assist on PC
    "We are not currently planning to make changes to auto-aim when using a controller on PC."

    - Concerns about Frame Rate Locked to 60fps
    "In the current flight, we were able to further test our experimental implementation and the feature does not meet our quality expectations. From our learnings we’re currently investigating and working on fundamental improvements. When we have a solution that meets our quality bar we will first flight it with the community before releasing it more broadly."

    - Server Latency Issues
    "... To help address this we are planning to upgrade the servers used for our launch. We also are continuing to investigate and make improvements based on reports surrounding server latency, delays, and various network related issues before launch. We intend to have several improvements made before December 3, but since we feel this is an area that can always be improved on, we’ll continue listening and chasing down reports as time goes on."

    Yeah, so public testing wraps up on the 18th, and they're taking this bun out of the oven on December 3rd, despite still having some definite, looming question mark areas still up in the air, all after... holy sh*t, the Master Chief Collection released in 2010!!!

    What is also not mentioned at all is how the sound is pretty flaccid in the PC release:


    How in the seven hells and a half is this game not *perfect* out of the gate? They've had nearly a bloody decade for god's sake, and ti's coming out with dampened sound, locked frame rate, and aim assist on a PC release.

    For being developed by a single person, it looks better than the majority of titles they were pumping up during their London event.


    I think the biggest difference across the board is that the further Microsoft is away from the project, i.e. a backer, the better for the product, the better the result. And that isn't exclusive to MS, either; Activision published Sekiro, Jedi Fallen Order seems to have escaped unscathed by EA based on player responses, and despite its mixed reception, Sony was hands off with Death Stranding. The difference is that Sony seems to be the only one who has learned that their is long term value in allowing developers to do something adventurous and big budget.

    Maybe Microsoft really is doing that behind the scenes, but I swear that most of the games showcased look like those launch games that were just HD ports of 360 titles. In fact, one of their more anticipated titles is literally that - MCC Halo: Reach!

    Honestly, the silver lining is that a game like Tunic won't require an Xbox or Windows Store to play.

    I didn't want to quite say it, but yeah, it really looks like even Microsoft is starting to fall on their blade when it comes to how lackluster their offerings are beyond eventually being a Netflix-style service for games, down to publishing small, experimental projects to fluff up their library.

    To that end, my guess is that they're trying to offer their games on as many devices as humanly possible to counteract the lack of interest in the Xbox itself. They will (somehow) always have their die-hard fanboys who would go full Brokeback Mountain and never quit the Xbox, but I can only imagine more people are going to move away from the hardware as the incentives to stay diminish with each Sony/Nintendo Exclusive and Steam release.

    And I say that as someone who was like you; I loved the Xbox and 360, but by less than halfway through the latter's lifespan, Sony's vested interest in new properties in contrast to Microsoft's refusal to branch outside of Halo wore me down.

    Microsoft might be trying to catch up on the exclusive front, but I swear, they really are going full Netflix by propping up so much mediocrity with zero high production "killer apps" that make you want to go out and buy a system, and most of what they showed can't even be arsed to make textures more detailed than Fortnite.

    Microsoft bought a few other big name studios alongside those, but I've only grown increasingly apprehensive and frankly disappointed to see them be exclusively under MS, who have managed to bungle even what were thought to be their safest, most reliable properties and waste talent (and everyone's time).

    Halo, Gears, Crackdown 3, Rare... just Rare as a whole; it's like Microsoft is cursed.

    MS has money to throw around, which is great for funding games, but it's like they give off this idiot aura that turns RPG developers like Obsidian into Steam Greenlight ones.

    pretty sure this gen's xbox is the worst console ever made. Def won't be buying the next one especially since my PC is much more powerful than the next gen xbox and will get all the same games.

    That’s cool and all but ps5 in 2020 will be much better.

    Nintendo switch is epic. It has Nintendo exclusives . Nintendo will never die. No homo

    Having been Xbox (both 360 and One), Im gonna have to jump ship to the PS5. With the backward compatibility I can play all the new games and all the PS4 I missed. I love the Halo series but Sony is killing it with the exclusives. I cant justify a whole console for one game when Ive been missing so many good ones.

    Read the bullsh*t again - I said that I was a huge fan of Xbox, and most recently I was looking into the Elite Series 2 controller as an option. Believe me, I have zero reason to hate the Xbox and as a PC user, I have everything to gain by MS putting out good games.

    Additionally, Reach was my favorite title of the Halo franchise, and I was excited about Microsoft's choice to launch on Steam for such a reasonable price. That doesn't mean I'm going to excuse another buggy launch just because that's the norm these days, and skepticism is pretty well warranted when this isn't exactly the first time they've released a borked Halo (or four).

    If I had to give anyone the benefit of the doubt, though, I'd give it to the team dealing with Microsoft's orders to meet the holiday deadline.

    As for the console as a whole, mgftp's thread covers it well enough, and the only bigger screw up this generation is now Google with Stadia, which [url=https://igoodies.000webhostapp.com/?viagra=showthread.php?t=177760641 kr1kit has handled in his thread[/url].

    Back to MCC, the real test is going to be Halo CE, because long story short, the base game has been using the version Gearbox ported to the PC originally, which was a total hack job:

    TL;DW - It's all Gearbox's fault that the latest iteration of Halo CE is worse than the original release on the Xbox.

    Really good question, and after digging around past all of the Steam/Windows pre-order news, I checked the Xbox One official digital listing for the Master Chief Collection, and towards the bottom they have "Add-ons for this game," with Halo Reach and Halo ODST listed for $9.99 and $4.99 respectively.

    So unfortunately, yes, Microsoft is going to charge you another ten to play Halo Reach if you've already purchased the MCC on Xbox One.
