Very rarely I can turn off the console via the controller and when I turn it back on can resume my game where I left off. 99% of the time though it has quit the game and I have to start it up from scratch again.

Usually works for me. The only time it’s a problem is when the game expects constant online connection. Then I usually find it’s booted me back to the main menu.

The Lego Ninjago game is free for today only.

It's also on Game Pass, so make sure you click the buy a copy button instead of just 'install'.

Great! Just added it to my collection. It can be the next game on the LEGO marathon.

Has anyone had any problems with the triggers getting stuck? I’ve been playing a lot of racing games these past few months and now the right trigger (accelerate) is prone to not snapping back immediately.

Your trigger spring is buggered. It happened to me on my DS4 (I'll be on my 5th one when I replace it!) thanks to Control. Have a look on YouTube to see how easy it is to fix? (I'm assuming same will apply if it's a XB controller.) eBay will have what you need if you decide to try it yourself. (Just make sure you're buying from a UK seller, unless you don't mind waiting for delivery from China.)

Yikes. Sine Mora is great and all, but surely they should be giving the Xbox One version.

Bit of a self-parody at this point.

Bit of a 'hold my beer' moment after Sony's widely panned PS Plus selection for the month of May.

May 2020 Xbox One Update Introduces Simpler Guide & More

Simplified Guide Layout

The Guide is the heart of navigation on Xbox One, letting gamers quickly switch between games and apps or head somewhere else on Home. The Guide is also everything you need to play, in one place, available instantly. Our aspiration is that if you’re in a game, you can send a message, start a party and come back so quickly that no one even knows you’ve left.

We’ve been working to streamline the Guide for all gamers and testing new layouts with our Xbox Insiders – their feedback has been invaluable in refining the design. The improvements range from structural changes to subtle visual details around badging and notifications, so that the Guide is understandable at-a-glance. The Guide will feel great both the first time you open it and the thousandth time you use it.

The new Guide is designed to be cleaner and easier to read. We’ve reduced the total number of tabs by combing related experiences and introduced a new default, left-to-right tab order, making it simpler to move around. App and system notifications are now found with the rest of your Alerts, right when you open the guide.

Finally, we know from your feedback that the default tab order isn’t right for everybody. For example, some players care more about Achievements than they do about Chats. As part of this update we’re also rolling out the ability to customize the tab order to what works for you. Access it via a “Customize guide tabs” option on “Profile & system” tab.

Connecting you with the Xbox Community

We want you to feel connected to what’s happening in your corner of Xbox Live and with the rest of the community! The updated Community page on Xbox One makes it clearer where your content is coming from and how to explore all that Xbox Live has to offer.

This improved layout splits the page into four new channels:

Shared by friends
Official posts from games
Club activity
Popular on Xbox Live
Jump into the Community page from your Xbox One home dashboard and find out what is happening in your community and favorite games.


Image

Additional Collection Filters

With the changes made to My games & apps, you have more flexibility to manage your collection the way you want. To continue our efforts to make it easier to sort through and manage your ever-growing library, we’ve added Genre and Player Count as additional Filters.


Image

Mixer Stream Browse Improvements

Your enthusiasm for Mixer drives us to improve the Mixer dashboard experience for streamers and viewers alike! In May, users will see a meaningful change on Xbox One that will vastly improve browsing streams.

Live thumbnails previewing a Mixer broadcast makes it so much easier to get a glimpse into the stream before jumping in. With this update, take a scroll through what’s happening on Mixer and find a new favorite streamer.

Ah, remember when Microsoft got the Guide right on DAY 1 with the Xbox 360...

...compared to now, where they just can’t stop strawberry floating around with the thing.

Why are people unhappy with a Shantae game? They're really really good Metroidvanias.

I echo that, that Shantae game was pretty fun. Not sure why people are annoyed about it.

Maybe it’s because it had a long stint on Game Pass already.

For the love of God, the OS...they’re redesigned the turd 2 or 3 times and still can’t stop polishing it in an attempt to make it remotely intuitive. Let it alone, strawberry float it, the new box is less than 6 months away.
