  1. 343 Industries announced that from December 2021, support will end for online matchmaking and certain other online features in all the Xbox 360 Halo games (3, ODST, Reach, 4, CE Anniversary, Wars, and Spartan Assault). You'll still be able to play online, but only in customs. They've also removed all of them from sale (though you should still be able to get the DLC for free). https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/news/sunsetting-halo-xbox-360-game-services-in-2021 I thought this was worth its own topic rather than burying it in the 360 thread, since although a lot of 360 games' online features have been shut down over the years, Halo is the biggest first-party series it's happened to. It's good that they've given everyone this amount of notice in advance! I only hope that we'll get this length of warning when the leaderboard servers for 360 games get disabled, whenever that may be...
  2. Now I know there's going to be some arguing over whether this is really retro or not but the system came out in 2006... to date there's well over 1000 games (1278 by my Excel count!) and it's reaching PS2 levels of older game releases. So with that in mind I'm getting in early Back in 2006 if we went back 10 years the likes of the SNES, MD, PS1, N64 etc were considered retro (just look at Retro Gamer for the time) so the 360 is getting there. That's my justification anyway! On a few recent trips to indie stores I noticed the market had pretty much bottomed out and looking at the rarer titles in the ordinary cases (not including special editions yet) goes above £50. Most titles are just a few quid with the odd exception, with this in mind I picked up a 360 slim and wireless pad for £60 as well as a nice pile of games: The sock was not included. Now I did do another trip yesterday and picked up about 20 games but I'll snap them another time, for the moment I've just been looking at getting a load of bundles and filling out piles of a collection that way. I've also prepped a few external HD's for full installs and to get the patches whilst they are still available! That's the biggest worry that MS will pull the plug at some point and we will just be left with the standard releases. Fine on most games but on stuff like Bioware titles it'd be a mess. I've compiled what I think is a current list of every PAL title including a list at the bottom of PAL exclusives which has a surprising few. Now this list is up to date as of 27th March but there's bound to be the odd title that will slip out that I'm not aware of. Link I sourced most of it from the official Xbox Achievements website, seeing as every game had them they were listed here so it's double takes as an accurate list. I coudln't find anything more complete so we are stuck with mine. I'm not dabbling in any other countries but I might wander over to some of the Japan releases as I believe there's a fair few decent rare games there (suggestions below!). Will I ever complete this? Who knows.... but with the price of games so low I could get through huge chunks of it without a sweat. Couple of titles I'm really looking forward to are DJ Hero and Guitar Hero with peripherals for example. I know a huge chunk of these will shoot up in price over the next few years (just look at the PS2 and Wii!) so seems the best time. I had a 360 at launch and it was fun to go back to games I bought over 10 years ago and just redownload them. Was playing around with Geometry Wars/Sensible Soccer last night both of which are amazing games (I bought Sensi around 2007!). There's loads of games I just missed, in particular the likes of Kingdoms of Amalur come to mind which still hold up pretty well to this day.

  6. Did a quick search and couldn't find a thread about this so... http://majornelson.com/2016/03/24/xbox-live-games-with-gold-for-april-2016/?linkId=22649091 Xbox One - The Wolf Among Us & Sunset Overdrive Xbox 360 - Dead Space & Saints' Row 4 Decent selection I reckon, loved Sunset Overdrive (and Dead Space back in the day). Will probably leisurely go through Wolf Among Us over time but most chuffed about SR4, loved 2 & 3 mostly for the humour and inventiveness of the mission, better than GTA in lots of ways I thought. So, what you folks make of the list?
  7. On Xbox One, Xbox Live Gold members can download Pneuma: Breath of Life for free during the month of November. Knight Squad will be available as a free download from November 16th to December 15th. Knight Squad is a medieval Bomberman meets Gauntlet with Unreal Tournament like game modes.

When Xbox One Backward Compatibility launches on November 12, play multiplayer with your friends no matter which console they’re on and enjoy Xbox 360 games with the advanced features of your Xbox One, including Game DVR, Screenshots, and in-home streaming to Windows 10. Xbox One owners can download their free Xbox 360 Games with Gold from Xbox.com/GameswithGold or from their Xbox 360 console. The games will automatically show up in the “Ready to Install” section of “My games & apps”.
  8. We all know the 360 was probably the worst in terms of reliability in the early days. I remember at GAME we were getting nearly 50% back faulty at one point. Addons of warranties was dead easy, all you had to do was mention RROD. The PS3 I'm not sure of. With the current gen, I'm not expecting mega numbers, but we did get a handfull back every month at GamesCentre. I know I'm on my second Xbox One after the drive failed in my launch unit. I've also had a controller fail on it. 360 wise, I had 7 in total over the years. Most had the RROD and one had a drive failure, I bought a slim unit on release and never had a problem with it.

  10. Seems to be Lego's take on Disney Infinity and Skylanders. The game leaked this morning, so WB just confirmed the thing. Polygon has the story: http://www.polygon.com/2015/4/9/8376101/lego-dimensions-release-date-back-to-the-future-wizard-of-oz http://www.lego.com/en-us/dimensions/ Trailer:
  11. http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2015/01/29/lego-marvel-avengers-and-lego-jurassic-world-coming-in-2015.aspx Still no Lego Back To The Future. Booo. Here's the press release:
  12. VG247 I've been out of the loop with AC games for a while now so I have no idea how this ties in and all that stuff. I always look forward to playing them, the main ones anyway, but never get around to for some reason. I still have Brotherhood to finish and I've got Revelations still in seal lol.
  13. It's not going to be free anymore as of 29/7. You have to upgrade to sky go extra to keep it going. That's that fucked then. edit: This is bound to apply to the PS4 and just announced Xbox One versions too. I wonder if bringing it out from behind the gold paywall has played any part.
  14. Quick recap for those who didn't see the earlier posts in the PS4 thread: Here's the table I compiled from Metacritic's top 20 games on each platform: As I mentioned above, it has slightly more PS3 exclusives than 360 ones, but far more cross-platform games than either. But Metacritic is a rather bland resource, with some questionable decisions in there (I have never understood the critic's love for LittleBigPlanet, for example). So then Pob made a brilliant suggestion: So I did. And here it is. The list contains 324 games. Of those, 158 are listed as having shipped for the PS3, and 189 for the 360. In total, 217 of the games shipped on one or both of these platforms - less than I would have thought, but we're a diverse bunch with love for lots of weird little games. Also, I'm defining "exclusive" here to mean "shipped on one of PS3 and 360, but not both" (more on this later). So Gears of War is a 360 exclusive, even though it shipped on PC too (eventually). Of those 217 games, 27 of them are PS3 exclusives, and 58 of them are 360 exclusives. A clear advantage for Microsoft. Here's every exclusive from the rllmuk top 100, the rest can be viewed at the spreadsheet: 10 PS3 games versus 18 Xbox 360 games. This strongly supports the probably quite common feeling that Microsoft had the better exclusives last generation (although Sony did manage three of the top five, which is some console-ation. Hah! A pun, see!) But what of my original hypothesis -- that platform exclusives are a sideshow and cross-platform games are where it's at? Again, sticking to my slightly narrow definition of "exclusive" as "one PS3 or 360 but not both" my data from all of rllmuk's top 324 games shows 27 PS3 exclusives and 58 Xbox 360 ones. But it shows a further 132 games that shipped on both platforms. I think this weakly supports my hypothesis: it's not as skewed as I thought, but it does show that people's affections more commonly land on multiplatform. Now, what about true exclusives, i.e. games that shipped on PS3 or 360 and nowhere else? This alters the count radically. Within the 324 games in the list, there are 24 PS3 games and only 32 Xbox 360 games. Suddenly it's a lot closer to parity. (Plus, for interest, the Wii manages 16 games and the PC 37.) The three missing PS3 games that were in the first list but not in the second are Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Motorstorm RC, and Guacamelee. All three of these are actually full Sony exclusives that shipped for Vita, but didn't appear on any other consoles. So Sony is doing well here in terms of tempting people onto its platforms via desireable exclusive games. Whereas the 26 games that shipped on 360 but not on PS3 were: Mass Effect, Minecraft, Alan Wake, Fez, Super Meat Boy, Witcher 2, CoD2, Condemned, Space Giraffe, Flatout: Ultimate Carnage, "mushihimesama futari 1.5", Space Invaders Extreme, Guitar Hero II, Phantasy Star Universe, Pinball FX, Mark of the Ninja, Guitar Hero Remastered, Quarrel, State of Decay, Bastion, Carcassone, Fable 3, Gun, N+, and One Finger Death Punch. I see two factors at work here. First, Microsoft's first party software houses often release on Windows as well as 360, whereas Sony houses have no such interest. And for many years, indies would often target 360 alongside PC or smartphone for smaller releases; sadly for Microsoft I think the tide had turned against it slightly and the indie momentum is Sony's for now. I still think my original point stands, however. Something like two thirds or three quarters of your gaming time is likely to be spent on games that are available for more than one console. For all the noise about your Uncharteds and your Forzas, true exclusive games are less important. So when you come to spend money on a console, don't forget factors like "which one runs cross platforms games best" (which was the 360 last gen and the PS4 now), "which pad do I prefer", "which network are my friends active on". These aren't factors the games companies spend much time talking about -- they just want to show you exclusive games -- but they are just as important. A footnote about launch titles. A quick scan down the first 100 games in the rllmuk top games list and I could only spot one single title -- Hitman: Blood Money -- released in the first year of either console's life. I have previously taken some flack for expressing the opinion that launch titles shouldn't matter very much when choosing a console because they are, by and large, crap anyway. I think this vindicates that opinion.

Perhaps the most significant change is at the top. Replacing the bumbling, android-esque Don Mattrick with the far more affable Phil Spencer, is being hailed by many across the industry as a sign that Microsoft is serious about getting gamers back on board, and at his first E3 as president of Xbox, Phil will be looking to make an impact. Xbox One already has a hugely promising set of games announced, including: Halo 5, Quantum Break, Sunset Overdrive, Fable Legends and the enticing looking user generation tool, Project Spark. Now that the ID@Xbox program has had time to mature, expect Microsoft to make up ground amongst the indie community, by ensuring they get a good shot at the spotlight, likely in a similar fashion to Sony's Indie showcase last year. Microsoft have a lot of rumoured games in the pipeline too. The most prominent is the leaked Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which will feature HD remasters of Halo 1 - 4. With this and the inevitable Halo 5 showcase, expect E3 2014 to be a big deal for MS's 343 Industries. Another popular franchise heavily rumoured to be making a return to Xbox One, is Forza Horizon 2. The open world racer has been a strong fan favourite, and will be well positioned to go up against Sony's Drive Club this winter. We could also hear the first details about Black Tusks' Gears of War, even if it is just in the form of a CGI trailer, and similarly, Crackdown 3 may get an announcement trailer, although the game itself isn't rumoured to be arriving until 2016. Of the credible rumours floating around, this final one is probably the most interesting, and if true, will do much to sell me - and others I'm sure - an Xbox One. Project Nagano is the apparent codename for an Xbox One exclusive developed by action kings, Platinum Games. Of course Platinum have their good days and bad, but anything which smells even remotely like Bayonetta or Vanquish will almost certainly sell me an Xbox. On the services front, I imagine they'll talk about their next dashboard update, reveal more details about how Games With Gold is coming to Xbox One (cheers for the update Cosmic_Guru), and we'll hopefully get some insight into what their plans for Kinect are, now that they seriously need to incentivise people to buy it. More unlikely, is a reveal of their AR Fortaleza Glasses in response to Sony's Project Morpheus. It would seem like the wrong place to unveil the tech - if indeed they are still working on it - but who knows, it could be a way to give a game focussed show an injection of variety. Conference Review: In many respects, E3 was Phil Spencer's moment. After taking control of Xbox, Phil has had one message, Xbox is about games and this E3 was his time to prove it. One thing I think people forget about E3 2013, is that whilst policy announcements stole the show, MS were true to their word on making their E3 showcase all about games, arguably announcing a better set of exclusives than either Nintendo or Sony. They stuck to a similar strategy this year, and from the moment Phil took the stage, (but after offering a humble, almost contrite introduction to those watching) the game announcements just kept on coming, and didn't stop until the lights went down. Sticking with a long running tradition, the show opened with Call of Duty and was quickly followed by the unveil of the highly anticipated Forza Horizon 2. The show kept the pace up, with showcases for third party titles, Assassins Creed, Dragonage 3 and The Division, as well as some fun looking DLC for Dead Rising 3, which was announced as immediately available to download. The biggest third party reveal came in the form of Rise Of The Tomb Raider, which - awful name aside - has jumped to become one of my most anticipated titles for 2015. Sticking with 2014 though, and we were given a further look at E3 standout, Sunset Overdrive, along with create 'em up, Project Spark. The latter of which received a surprise outro from Conker. Although some bemoaned the implication that this meant MS was unlikely to deliver a full Conker title themselves any time soon. Unlike the previous year, Indie titles got a nice chunk of time. ID@Xbox head, Chris Charla was on hand to introduce a range of exciting titles, the highlights of which were Playdead's Limbo sequel, Inside and the gorgeous looking, Ori & The Blind Forest. Rounding out 2014's roster was the reveal of the - sadly - leaked title, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, a remastering of Halo 1 - 4, featuring all the campaigns and original multiplayer modes, remastered at 1080p and 60fps. The collection is going to be available this year and all for the price of a standard game. With the known quantities out of the way, MS went on to reveal an early look at a reboot to Phantom Dust (a game I'd have to confess to not being familiar with), and more excitingly, Scalebound, a large scale action game (with added dragons), from the masters of the genre, Platinum Games. The show closed out with the announcement of an Xbox favourite, Crackdown, helmed by original creator, Dave Jones, the game is said to be utilising the contentious cloud tech to bring added physics to some of the larger scale set pieces. Conspicuous by its absence was any mention of Kinect. Either as a utility or as a game input, a fact which more or less puts to bed any notion that it will be used as a serious control method for games going forward. So there you have it. Phil stayed true to his word that E3 was going to be all about the games, and games is what we got. With no time dedicated to anything else, the show did at times feel a little like an expanded shizzle reel, so whilst they arguably cut the fat, they also lacked a variety in their pacing. Sadly prior leaks took the edge off many of their surprise announcements, an over reliance on CGI trailers blunted some of the excitement of their reveals, and a lot of third party games were given time many had hoped would be dedicated to first party exclusives. All of which left me initially underwhelmed by MS's showing, but in putting these links and text together, it's impossible to deny that they came out swinging, and showed off a lot of strong content. They have a stronger 2014 lineup than either Sony or Nintendo and Sunset Overdrive could very well be game of the year material. I'll be keen to see where MS is after a year of Phil's leadership.

  19. It's Sledgehammer Games time for a go on the Call of Duty conveyor belt. Full reveal in a few days, but they've released a screenshot - let's speculate wildly! Going by the combination of the title and screenshot I surmise the black fella's name is Smith, what I haven't figured out is why he's wearing what appears to be a knight's helmet. Maybe Activision want some of that sweet, sweet Game of Thrones cash? EDIT: Apparently it's called Advanced Warfare and not Blacksmith so now my post makes no sense. Thanks a lot NeoGAF!

  21. https://blog.2k.com/index.php/home/single/announcing-borderlands-the-pre-sequel The wait is finally over for a new game in the Borderlands universe! We're launching you to Pandora's moon for the first time inBorderlands: The Pre-Sequel, currently being co-developed by Gearbox Software and 2K Australia, and available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC later this fall. Set between Borderlands and Borderlands 2, you'll play as four new characters classes fighting alongside Handsome Jack, witnessing his transformation into the ruthless tyrant you loved to hate in Borderlands 2, and assisting with the rise of the Hyperion Corporation. The signature shoot 'n' loot gameplay of the Borderlands series expands with the addition of low-gravity and oxygen-powered jetpack combat, the icy 'Cryo' elemental damage type, the deadly laser weapon class, and new vehicles to help you explore the lunar landscape. Who will those four new playable character classes be, you ask? Well, they are all familiar faces from the Borderlands universe: - Athena, the Gladiator: Uses her Kinetic Aspis, which is a shield that can absorb incoming damage, then convert it back into energy to use against enemies. Athena made her debut in The Secret Armory of General Knoxx DLC for the first Borderlands game. - Wilhelm, the Enforcer: Wilhelm was previously seen in Borderlands 2 as one of the first deadly bosses in the game. - Nisha, the Lawbringer: The sheriff of Lynchwood from Borderlands 2, Nisha will be dealing out her own brand of justice, which we'll discuss further in the coming months. - Claptrap, the Fragtrap: Wait - Claptrap? The goofy robot companion from Borderlands 2, now playable for the first time? Fragtrap is his character class? Well, you can play him too! In the upcoming months, we'll introduce you to more moon environments, new enemies, vehicles, and…well, we have to save some surprises. For now, feast your eyes on the first images from Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, featuring low-gravity combat, cool new guns, and more gorgeous lunar vistas than you can shake a moon-boot at. Then be sure to watch the developer overview video below to get your first glimpse of the game in action. Eurogamer Preview: PC Gamer Preview:

Apologies for the delay, but a busy end to the financial year at work plus exciting* family developments have led to somewhat less free time than I was counting on. But the results are all collated, I've started filling out my lovely, upbeat commentary, and I'm just about ready to start publishing. Those of you who've been in one of my results threads before should know most of the drill already, but for the rest of you: I'll be feeding you results in drips and drabs with attached comments. Said comments reflect my own opinions, rather than anybody else's, and as such may be at odds with the perspective of the people who voted. Quite possibly very strongly so. There is one difference this time around - solely for the Game of the Year results I've been nabbing paragraph+ length quotes from people in the voting thread (plus a handful I've seen outside of it) - if anybody would like to have a game recognised and highlighted by their own quote who didn't put anything in the GOTY thread, drop me a PM with whatever it is you want to say and I'll consider putting it in. Other than that: I've tried to exclude invalid entries (i.e. no pre-2013 games in the GOTY list) and catch any errors, but if you do notice something wrong - a single title accidentally counted twice under different names, for example - please do flag it up! Anyway, that's that. In a moment** I'll be publishing the first part of the results: your Most Wanted games of 2014. We'll look at the retrospective awards over the coming days, but for now, let's look to the future, eh! Oh, and as ever, the methodology behind the results collecting is spoilered below: *read: shit **when the forum stops auto-appending them to this post...
  23. Any idea what the two free games with gold will be in February? I'm on my work PC and any related searches are blocked, also if it turns out to be games that I'd want I'll have to source a new Hard Drive and I'd really need to start that process today Thanks for any help...
