Re: New Xbox One Interface is the WORST

I don't mind the new interface although for me the voice controls seem to have dropped in quality a bit. Has anyone else noticed this or is it just me? Are you referring to the Cortana aspect of the update? If so, I would agree, but much more than "a bit". Cortana is terrible at voice rec...

Re: Things in Video Games you Hate?

Lack of different difficulty levels. I would prefer to see a range from hand-holding easy to near-impossibly hard to cover all possible skill levels.

Re: MS Play Anywhere is Digital Only

I had not heard this but upon seeing this post, I looked it up. Probably a little misleading the way it was announced but personally I don't see anything wrong with it. To be honest, I'm not sure it's going to be utilized that frequently and I know even though I'm not against buying a digital game, ...

Re: Instrumental Music?

Although, music with lyrics can be very enjoyable depending on the artist, my favorite type of music is instrumental. It fits nicely with my favorite genre and that is progressive music (Camel, King Crimson, etc.). Probably one of my favorite groups of all time is Tangerine Dream, a group I think is...

Re: New Improved XboxOne Console in 2017

imagine Microsoft financing an Xbox purchase with monthly payments I'm almost positive Microsoft did this with the Xbox 360 early in the consoles life. With the steady stream of discounts, sales, and price reductions, it seems that it would be a terrible deal. I don't recall if it lasted that long ...

Re: Nathan Drake and the Bad Review

I don't understand this argument. What evidence is there that this reviewer was paid off? What evidence is there that any reviewer has ever been paid off? Who would have paid this guy off to write a bad review? Are you suggesting that Microsoft would pay this guy off to intentionally give a PS4 exc...

Re: Nathan Drake and the Bad Review

If there's a review problem, it's reviewers getting paid off to write rave reviews - often before a game is even released This isn't the only problem. I think just as big a problem is reviewers (or sites) getting paid off to write poor reviews. Whether it be Uncharted in this case or any number of ...

Re: Sequels or New IPs?

I would be surprised if anyone could answer this since there are clear advantages to both. After all, an established franchise is a new IP at one point, at least most of the times. However, since the discussion is based on having a choice, I would currently choose new IP's. As I look at my Xbox One ...

Re: Prince's passing

Prince's surprise passing was certainly shocking even with the news of his recent hospital stay. However, besides being a fan this also reminded me what a crappy year it has been for music legends Keith Emerson - March 2016 Glenn Frey - January 2016 David Bowie - January 2016 Lemmy - December 2015 C...
