I'm currently enjoying Astroneer on Xbox. The controls and the viewing angles are a bit turd but reading the above gives me hope it will be improved it is pre alpha after all.

These positive murmurings of Cities have got me genuinely excited to add this to my collection. I can't afford a desktop at the moment to play games on so if I can experience astroneer, cities and holy hell if planet coaster did come to Xbox I'd be over the moon.

Really like everything Microsoft is doing with the Xbox and the upcoming Scorpio I just think the first party games are not that appealing anymore. Hopefully sea of thieves will be a AAA new IP.

I was thinking of picking up Lego Star Wars at some point, now i can get it for "free". Not too fussed about the rest.

Lego Star Wars the Complete Saga isn't anywhere near as good as later titles, due to it be way less refined.

I completed it when it first came out, and haven't played it since (actually, I think I might have traded it in), so I guess you're right. But at the time it was brilliant, and out of all the Lego games its source material is the one I'm most familiar with, so all the gags hit home.

The preceding version (which only covered Episodes 4 to 6) had bastard-hard no-death achievements. Some of those were an evil challenge, but they cut them from the Complete version.

Those Cities Skylines reviews have made me sit up and pay attention. It's one I'd added to the "buy later" list, and hadn't thought much about, but I need to find out more.

Is there really not an option to move all your content from one External hard drive to another in one go? I have to manually transfer every game individually? Seriously, what the strawberry float? :?

Yeah, I had that exact problem last week :dread: Just ended up transferring the BIG games and then downloading the rest of the indie things. Still got 80 things in my "Ready to Install". No chance.

A Phil Spencer interviews with the Guardian "about the modern games industry, Phil Spencer discusses the potential of episodic games and the pros and cons of downloadable content" -

Spencer knows this. “Right now the focus is really on the content that we’re building,” he says. “I know I get some community pushback on our first-party [slate], and what position we’re in, and I want to say to people: that same level of commitment you felt from myself and from the team as we’ve evolved platform over the last three years – as we’ve evolved service over the last three years, as we’ve evolved and innovated hardware over the last three years – is going on with our first party. I don’t want to go and pre-announce a bunch of things, but we are upping our investment, there’s no doubt about that.”

I just had the idea that if we won't be getting specific exclusive Scorpio content could we see Scorpio only maps in things like Halo 5,6,wars or Gears?
Surely the extra grunt could give the designers more freedom to make larger and prettier maps?

No chance, I mean, First party games will get 4K support day 1 I suspect but other than increased resolution and 4K texturing (something available in the games already -bar Halo 5 cos its not on PC) they won't separate the online gamers with a bizarre wall.

Halo 5 has a healthy online side, with a ton of modes it doesn't take long to find a game, I believe Gears 4 again has more players on Xbox than PC but both PC and Xbox gamers can play online, (ranked playlists are incoming) with Xbox having option to only play other Xbox's. Personally, if it's co-op stuff and MMO kinda malarkey I welcome PC gamers to keep online bigger. Can Horde 2.0 be played with PC players?

Surely they could make it so the levels are only visible to Scorpio owners?
I'm unsure why that would be so terrible and it would give the Scorpio a USP where they can show the difference in power.

Barely anyone online compared to the normal Xbox Ones? Also, it would go against 'nobody is left behind' mantra Phil Spencer's been on about.

I get the not many people aspect but nobody is being left behind as the games are still exactly the same just with a few extra levels just for Scorpio owners. How is that any different to dlc levels?
I own Battlefield 1 but not the dlc I don't complain about not having the dlc because it's my choice to not have it and levels for Scorpio is just a more expensive version of that.

Are they trying to one-up Sony's shite April selection or what?

To be fair, Lara Croft is good, but it was already on PS+.

That makes it two months in a row now that both platform's selections haven't got a single game that interests me.
