This not a completely new feature for Xbox. With the "Busy" status you should not receive most notifications, except for achievements if I'm not mistaken. Or did they remove this status (I never used it)?

Destiny 2 is a lot less annoying, but a lot more of the same

Koborover

8 months ago

More of the same is absolutely fine? I played a lot of Destiny 1 but come on, Bungie had their time to refine Destiny 1 through expansions. Destiny 2 should be a step forward for the genre, the run-shoot-bossfight treadmill needs innovation.

@samharper Not sure why you're downvoted, MCC matchmaking was dead on arrival. I was there on Day 1, it was god-awful. The singleplayer side of things (including the free ODST campaign) was decent though.

I hope people remember how very mediocre The Dark Below and House of Wolves were (the two season pass DLCs for Destiny). I was so glad I bought them later on at a discount, like all DLCs for Destiny they're not worth the initial asking price.

Bungie seems to have learned another lesson from Borderlands. If you can't make the story more interesting than 'some bad guys threaten the world', at least give it some personality with funny characters.

Unreleased Dreamcast racer found on devkit, now playable

Koborover

1 year ago

@robbiesabo You mean the GDEMU disc drive emulator right? I have one and it's brilliant.

It's 99% compatible with the Dreamcast library and even works with multi-disc games. You remove the old GD-ROM drive from your Dreamcast and simply replace it, without any soldering, with this board that reads SD cards. It basically feeds disc images to the Dreamcast as if they are tracks on a CD. If you load up the SD card with a menu program called GDmenu as Track 01, you are able to access all the SD card contents when the system boots up. It's a dream for Dreamcast preservation.

The guy who created it sells a similar device for the Saturn and is currently designing one for the TurboDuo.

Video games remade in cardboard

There are more examples of recent tabletop games that are obviously inspired by older videogames and worth checking out:

- Star Wars: Rebellion, based on 1997's 4X game Star Wars: Rebellion (Supremacy in the UK)
- Star Wars: X-wing - The Miniatures Game, based on the X-wing flight combat series of the 90s
- Star Trek: Ascendancy, based on 1999's 4X game Star Trek TNG: Birth of the Federation

"Camp Nou will appear exclusively to Konami's game. It's a seemingly minor detail that could potentially have the biggest ramifications of all, as it means the ground won't be available in this year's instalment of FIFA"

It's a fantastic stadium, but come on. If the official Barcelona squad and kits are still in FIFA 17, no FIFA player will have sleepless nights over the loss of one stadium.

The Walking Dead: Michonne review

Koborover

Enjoyed this more than I expected based on the reviews, I was engaged from beginning to end. The game adds some much needed background and personality to the (IMO) boring Michonne from the show. I still like everything Telltale does with TWD more than AMC's zombie soap opera.

Halo 5's most annoying enemy nerfed

Koborover

For the triple Warden fight I used the trick to skip the fight. At the start you can quickly use one of the launchpads, then in mid-air activate the Spartan boost towards the center ledge in the back and climb up. It's cheap as hell but it's kind of a cool trick to pull off.

Rock Band 4 review

Koborover

3 years ago

This release is perfect for me. I can carry over my wireless 360 instruments and DLC, the additional legacy adapter is a small price to pay. Harmonix was right to focus on the core offline 4 player experience, in my opinion. And by expanding RB4 as a platform, it can only get better.

@Mr-Writer I know. I can live with losing against an opponent who is a more agile gamer or who has better players on the pitch, but there's definitely another tactics/control factor in play that's a mystery to me. That's what makes it frustrating.

BioWare releases Dragon Age: Inquisition's party storage patch

Koborover

3 years ago

@VoxyGon Sadly, you cannot ignore them completely. To progress the story, you have to collect a certain amount of 'power'. This is the case in many RPGs of course, but in DA:I the side quests are very basic: go kill this or collect that. I felt bored when I needed 15 power to do the next big story quest (mage recruitment in Redcliffe). Still playing at the moment, but right now I think Origins is the better game.

Rock Band dev Harmonix asks fans to fill out "important" survey

Koborover

3 years ago

Compatibility with existing DLC is a must for me, but I wonder about possible added costs. Is there any re-licensing involved when Harmonix allows people to access their old DLC in a new game on a new platform? At the very least, some form of cross-platform data conversion is needed to use your past-gen library in a next-gen game.

I'm not surprised, its grinding-based design is well-implemented and addicting to many people. I decided to stop after completing the raid (best content in the game). Between levels 20-28 I wasn't really playing for fun, even with friends. The PvP is just a confusing insta-kill frenzy to me.

I enjoyed playing MGS4, but I agree completely with the comments about MGS4 being too much fan service. Kojima has to be commended for listening but he made it for the fans, not for himself. There are many examples, but especially Raiden's sudden transformation into Gray Fox and all the answers to MGS2's ambiguous plot felt very forced.

If they made this for the Sega Game Gear I would be all over it. It would make more sense actually because unlike the Game Boy, the GG never had any TV solutions. Although the Game Boy Player on the Gamecube runs in SD, with a good video connection like RGB SCART it can look decent on HD TVs.
