Not a bad month for GwG if you don’t already own either Xbox One games but since I do I’d of preferred Forza Motorsport 7, I can’t believe it still hasn’t been put on GamePass. I’ll give Torchlight and Castlevania LoS a go.

So the Minecraft Super Duper Graphics pack I mentioned a few posts ago, well it’s been cancelled because apparently the graphics upgrade proved too technically demanding and didn't perform well across several systems. Looks like it was way too ambitious for current gen consoles but who knows it could still release on next gen consoles, hopefully.

@MaccaMUFC i still find it odd that with how simple a game Minecraft is that it runs like crap on all systems

@BAMozzy Today I thought I’d give RDR2 another go since I haven’t even made it pass chapter 3 yet. I saw the new HDR settings that was patched in back in May so wondered since we have the same TV if you’ve tweaked with the settings or know of someone with the same tv and what settings they used? I’m constantly trying to figure what’s best but no matter what it always still looks washed out. Here are a couple of images I saw someone posted showing after the HDR patch, these screenshots show what the game is supposed to look like but currently all I’m seeing on mine is washed out colours and what looks like blurry fog constantly on the screen wether it’s day or night in-game.

September's 2019 Games with Gold lineup for Xbox One includes: Hitman: The Complete First Season and We Were Here. For Xbox 360 owners (and through Xbox One backward compatibility), September kicks off with Earth Defense Force 2025, followed by Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

Can't say its a good month - not for me anyway. I will add Hitman, just because I can but won't bother with the rest...

@BAMozzy So we are repeating games now MS? I know for a fact Tekken Tag 2 was already free with gold cause that's how I got it.

Honestly I wouldn't at all be surprised if they do away with Games with Gold next gen.

@Tasuki According to this list https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Games_with_Gold_games Tekken Tah 2 hasn't been offered as a free game - there have been a few fighters but not this one - at least not that I can see. To be honest, I hate fighting games so couldn't honestly say whether or not it has been.

360 games are likely to end - they only have 400-500 or so on BC so unless they do add more, or double up on some of the earlier offerings, they can't keep offering 24 a year without running out.

@BAMozzy That list is wrong I can guarantee that. The only time I bought Tekken Tag 2 was on the Wii U because it included all the DLC. When MS offered Tekken Tag 2 with GWG they included the Snoop Dogg stage so I locked it in. Because I owned it on Wii U, I wouldn't have bought it on the 360.

@Tasuki appears you're right. Seemed MS gave it way free during E3 2016 when 7 was announced.

@BAMozzy pretty sure they said at E3 that was it for the Backwards Compatibility Program

https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2019/06/10/e3-2019-whats-next-xbo...

of course they should have just added a 360 emulator the the console itself then ALL the 360 games would have been playable and we know the XB1 could run one because each BC game has one built in

@FullbringIchigo I am perfectly aware of the fact that MS said that they were not adding anymore titles to BC - which means that they have a very limited amount of games that can be offered 'free' with Games with Gold IF they are to remain playable on XB1. Either they end up having to add more, stop giving 360 games or having to offer games that have already been offered before if they are to remain playable on XB1 too.

There is more than I thought at 575 games (out of 2103) 360 titles that are BC with XB1 as well as 41 (out of 1047) games from the OG Xbox that could be offered on XB1 GwG so you would think that they have 25yrs of games to offer free (616 titles and 24 per year would give over 25yrs) of titles - although quite a few were offered before the Xbox One released and before BC was a thing. They should have enough for the foreseeable future to offer games without repetition but eventually, there has to come a time when they either stop, add more or double up on titles because there is a 'finite' number of titles they can offer. That's also assuming every one of the BC games give Xbox permission to offer free.

That was the point I was making to Tasuki who categorically claims that Tekken Tag 2 is a repeated offering despite the fact that the lists of Games with Gold titles offered have no record of this ever being offered at all. That is understandable because it was never part of Games with Gold but a Bonus for Xbox Gold members during E3 2016 which is something different. This is still the first time its been offered as a Games with Gold but not the first time its been offered to Gold members (a bit Austin Powers... LOL) so I can understand the confusion.

@redd214 Ok I knew I got it for free from them. Still I suppose it doesn't technically count as it wasn't given out during GwG, still pretty bad to give out a game for free that they already did at some point.

I am somewhat surprised that MS hasn't done away with 360 games included with GwG like Sony did with PS3 and Vita.

@Tasuki I think the fact that the 360 games are actually playable on the XB1 is the main reason. Plus they're still, imo at least, trying to gain as much good will as possible going into next gen so I doubt they'll stop offering them

Finally giving State of Decay 2 a shot thanks to Gamepass for PC. Not a great game by any means but I actually enjoy the grind in these kinda games. That said the limited inventory space is affecting my enjoyment some.

Is anyone else hyped for "Gears 5" coming out this weekend? Apparently it's running at 4K/60fps on the One X which is pretty amazing and the reviews I've seen (ACG and Skill Up) have been very complimentary.

@LN78 I am going to give it a go this weekend as I like a bit of Gears and while I was underwhelmed by 4, I liked the Kait character who is most of the focus of 5.

@Rudy_Manchego Yeah. She's ace. Like you said Gears 4 was the epitome of a "meh" game but I really liked the character interactions and I thought the brief mech section near the end was a ton of fun. My brother and I have been looking forward to playing the couch co-op on this one for a while. Unapologetic dude- bro shooters are a dying breed (they were everywhere at one point) but they sure are fun.

Perhaps the best exclusive on Xbox this generation and perhaps one of the best looking games too - right up there with the best Sony games too - and running at a 4k 60fps. It's interesting to hear about the pipeline here - not render the whole image below the target and upscale but render all the geometry, up scale and then do all the post-processing etc to get the best image possible.

I know some are not as big a Gears fan as others but I would put Gears up there with Uncharted for me and whilst Gears 4 wasn't really a big leap forward, playing it too safe (understandably as 343 seemed to lose that 'something' that made Halo so good, didn't seem to know the series that well) which maybe they had to do to prove they understood what made a Gears game and 5 certainly has taken more of a step forward for the franchise.

Anyway, those of us on Xbox don't tend to get too much to celebrate - at least outside of the Forza Franchise which has continued to excel and rightly be regarded as the best Racing games on console - after all, the do win the best racing game at the Game Awards. Gears has easily been the best franchise story based exclusive game for Xbox with Halo and Crackdown both disappointing. Its great that the Coalition have taken on the Gears franchise and made it more their own now but still kept the elements that we as fans grew to love.

@BAMozzy I had the time to play through the tutorial and prologue last night (will be playing the rest in co-op over the weekend) and whilst I didn't get to see the much vaunted "open world" portion of the game,I can certainly say that it's a contender for most polished and best looking console game (on One X) I've yet experienced. Seriously jaw dropping stuff.
