    Sad to hear about GB but nothing lasts forever, also why getting bought by overlords prob complicates things as much as it makes them easier

    Bummed out beyond belief. That said Jeff Gerstmann still remains the backbone of the site, so there's nothing to say they can't still produce more of those incredible E3 interviews with Phil in the future

    It was really just them swinging from one overlord to another lmao. They used to be owned by CBS, which is about as overlord as you can get

    I had assumed they still were owned by cbs, didn't even know they swapped to a different corporate wasteland

    So if I don't have a 4K TV, what benefits do I get from the X over the S? Disc drive and storage space?

    Better performance, storage, don't have to upgrade when your TV croaks and you wind up buying a 4k because they're inexpensive hello that was me.

    Those things, and 120fps games, if you have a monitor capable of it. Other than that, faster loading times.

    Yeah, a little bit. The S is a massive improvement over older models, though.

    The X is such a tidy unit tho, it’s like a hair cut you can set your watch to

    Meanwhile my ps5 next to it looks like it’s doing a threat display to ward off predators

    Can confirm, I wasn't fussed about a 4K TV for years, then my 1080p TV gave up in early January. For replacement TVs over a modest size now it's pretty much 4K or bust.

    Notably, Series X (and Series S) both have faster loading times from external USB storage, which is very appreciated in this time.

    So apparently I had forgotten that the only way to start a new game in sunset overdrive is to delete the fucking save file . Who the fuck approved that?

    yeah i think there was a trend of that around the start of the last generation. thankfully it didn't stick around around very long.

    I couldn’t find a way so I gave up and played more titanfall 2 . Forcing myself to use weapons I’ve never touched before to level them up . Today was smr and Mozambique , the latter was really fun and I think I will stick with it for awhile .

    So how good are the Seattle Seadogs?

    They broke up a perfect game but still managed to send only 27 to the plate.
    According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Means is the first pitcher to throw a non-perfect no-hitter with no walks, hit batters or errors.

    Seattle reached base on a dropped third strike and was thrown out stealing.

    I turned on the game during the at bat of the strikeout and turned it off after the CS. Just found out it was a no-no.

    Anyone here use Media Player on Xbox? Moreover, does anyone use a remote with it? Can you use a remote with it?

    Until just recently, we'd been using the media player on PS4, but the PS5 doesn't have one and you can't use the PS4's on it, so we're using the Xbox's now. But I'd rather have a dedicated remote.

    If so, any recommendations? Had my eye on one Windows Central recommended, but apparently it doesn't turn off by itself.

    Would this suit your needs? It works for all my Xbox media requirements.

    I realized yesterday that I could install Kodi on the xbox but couldn’t get it to work, I think because of something related to the pi-hole on my network.

    There are a lot of options, but most of them are ported over from UWP and not very user-friendly (they're not particularly adapted from Windows 10). The in-built media player (mostly for playing things straight of USB or other media storage) has remote support, but its limited by codec (for legal reasons as much as lazy ones I have to imagine), but you can basically shop through the app store on console between CCCP or K-Lite codec pack-powered options.

    I played Battlefront 2 on my X last night. First game I played on it. Took a while to find a match. In the second round the game froze. I could get back to the home menu but the game was locked up.

    Not the most encouraging first outing with a new system.

    How does DLC work in backwards compatible games? I fired up KOTOR (oXbox disc) and when I went to the DLC menu it said Xbox Live Servers are not longer functioning. I bought the Yavin DLC way back when and am using the same Live account.

    For games where they've bothered, you need to search the game in the modern store and download it from there.

    Which to the best of my knowledge only goes back as far as the Xbox 360; Live for the OG Xbox was shut down in 2010. For KOTOR, though, Yavin Station was apparently added as an update a year or two back for the backwards compatible version on Xbox One (and thus Series, I assume it's identical), so it should already be there in the game.

    Some of the backwards-compatible games have the DLC built-in. The backwards-compatible version of the original Borderlands, for example, comes with the DLC for free.

    I think it's on a case-by-case basis.

    I believe that's true. Though, the only useful thing about Yavin is the introduction of all the different lightsaber colours.

    Less about colors more about saber buffs.
