Could never really get into Vanquish. I’ve been told I was playing it ‘wrong’, in that you can be fairly adventurous in combat, sliding about as opposed to hugging cover. Meant to be a bit of a cult classic so I’ll try again.
MGS V was free on PS+ months ago, glad that the Xbox-only scrubs can finally get it too.

"Super Mega Baseball 2"

Why? Just why?
*Flashbacks of Power Rangers Super Megaforce*
I hate that phrase.

Ahem... Is it any good?

Not too bad, MGS and Streets of Rage are decent offerings. I’ve no idea if the other two are any good, but they are “free” so I’ll check them out.

I'm guessing I'm not the only one who already has the first Super Mega Baseball via Games With Gold, but has never played it.

Loves us all since 2008

Literally re-bought MGSV (The complete one with Ground Zeroes) two weeks ago. :fp:

Still, good games this month. Streets of Rage and Vanquish will go down well I think.

Check out some of our stuff!

Already own MGSV, SEGA Vintage Collection: Streets of Rage and Vanquish.

The Streets of Rage collection is awesome by the way.

In all seriousness, does that now mean that people on Xbox can join the GRcade discord and chat from there?

Don't think so, seems like you can only see what your friends are doing on Xbox for now. -

After following these few simple steps, your accounts will be linked and your Xbox Live game presence can be shared across Discord, enabling friends and users in your same Discord servers to see what you’re playing on Xbox Live.

It’s written in a very confusing way tbh. Hopefully it’ll be cleared up soon. Pointless to just see what Xbox users are playing.

The April Xbox Update Begins Rolling Out Today

Video & Display

We’ve added a bunch of new video features we hope you’ll enjoy, starting with Auto Low-Latency Mode (or ALLM for short). Auto Low-Latency Mode enables the family of Xbox One devices to notify your display when you’re playing a game, so a TV that also supports ALLM will know to switch to its low latency video mode. Many displays refer to low latency mode as “game mode.”

Gamers will also enjoy the newly introduced support for variable refresh rate output to AMD Radeon FreeSync and FreeSync 2 compatible displays. AMD Radeon FreeSync is a form of variable refresh rate which helps to reduce input latency and minimize display stuttering, delivering a buttery-smooth visual gameplay experience in your favorite games. The entire Xbox One family of devices will work with FreeSync-certified displays. Xbox One S and Xbox One X will also support high dynamic range with AMD Radeon FreeSync 2.

In addition, Xbox One X and Xbox One S now support output at 2560 x 1440 (1440p) resolution for games and media. With over a million and a half more pixels than 1080p, this resolution offers even more choice between Full HD and 4K displays. This feature should be especially appealing to Xbox One owners who use a 1440p display for PC gaming. Media apps can now add an option for 1440p output for on both Xbox One X and Xbox One S. Developers can also now enable games to run at native 1440p resolution on Xbox One X.

You can enable all these video options from the Settings menu on your Xbox One. Just navigate to “Display & Sound,” then “Video Output.” Note that you’ll only be able to turn on these settings if your TV or monitor supports them.

Streaming & Captures

This month, we’re also introducing a new Mixer Interactive feature called Share Controller. Mixer streamers on Xbox One can now share control of their game with a viewer on Mixer.com. Just turn on the “Share Controller” toggle from the Broadcast & Capture section in Guide and your viewers will be able to share control through a virtual controller in their web browser, or by plugging a physical controller into their PC.

Image

You can also now start Mixer broadcasts from anywhere on Xbox One, making streaming easier than ever. If you decide to switch games or exit to the dashboard, your viewers will see a pause animation until you jump back into a game. You will also see a pause animation on your broadcasting status bar on your screen.

In addition, you can now share captured screenshots and clips directly to Twitter, after authenticating your account, from the Broadcast & Capture tab of the Guide. Shared captures will now display and play directly in your Twitter feed instead of showing up as a link. We’ll also help you get your content discovered by suggesting a hashtag for the title of the game. Want to follow clips shared by Xbox gamers? Track clips with the #XboxShare hashtag!

Xbox Insiders have seen this option for a while, but now everyone can choose to switch between light and dark themes on your Xbox One based on the time of day. You can also personalize your theme to automatically transition from dark to light based on sunrise and sunset in your location. We’ve also added a new high-contrast light theme option, which makes on-screen elements easier to see.

If you love to stream music while gaming, you will be happy to hear that you can now selectively balance game audio against background music within the Guide. Simply navigate down to the app that is playing background music in the Guide. Press “A” to open a new flyout with additional music controls, including a new slider that will allow you to adjust the balance of background music and game audio.

We’ve also made audio enhancements in the Xbox One dashboard itself. System sounds on Home and in the Guide have been completely revamped to support spatial audio, so the audio cues from your surround sound system will match the actions you see on-screen.

Apps

The Microsoft Edge browser on Xbox One has been updated to a more modern look and feel. Enhancements to history and favorites make it easy for you to get back to your favorite sites. Other new features include tab muting, read aloud and autofill. You can also now download and upload pictures, music, and videos from Microsoft Edge on Xbox One; your downloaded content can then be browsed with the File Explorer app.

Clubs, Game Hubs & Tournaments

Community tournaments are now available directly in Game Hubs for supported games. This means you no longer need to own or be the admin of a club to create a tournament. To get started, open the Game Hub for a game that supports tournaments. Head to the “Multiplayer” tab and select “Community tournaments” then choose the option for “Create tournament.”

Club feeds have also gained new filters to show you “what’s new,” “what’s hot” or “top posts.” Additionally, you can now lock the comments on your feed posts across clubs, Game Hubs, and Community, so the only person in control of the narrative is you.

Rumour - Forza Horizon 4 set in UK?

I can confirm this to be true, and I will say that UK setting is defo not boring, trust me. I won't say anything more though, but there are some cool new features in there people will not have expected. E3 will tell all.

I'm not really, but I know someone who is and he tells me stuff occasionally. I trust him so if he tells me stuff I assume its the truth. He has told me stuff before that turned out true so he is credible. He told me some more FH4 stuff but I won't tell that. I kept the other stuff to myself too, but then this showed up so might as well kinda confirm.

Feel free to ask me more, so that I can laugh and not answer, teehee ;)

But trust me when I say it will be amazing, and you're in for a few surprises :)

Not really arsed about Forza but ripping about the Highlands would be ace. I remember there was a few Scottish tracks in Driveclub in and around the Isle of Skye and it was pretty cool seeing a bunch of landmarks I instantly recognised and had been to.
