Will have to see whats on sale currently. Alternatively its never bad to have a copy of Monkey Island 2 on your console...... Is there any easy way to check compatibility of 360 games with Xbox One? Or is it literally everything that is on sale digitally now?

Monkey Island 2: SE is on there.

Thanks, that's great news. I bought it way back on 360 but don't know how to merge game librarys (it was bought on an old gamertag) and i have lost my password etc. Now is the time to buy it for a..... fourth time.

Ouch. :lol:

As much as I love both Monkey Island games, and own them both on 360 (so on X1 too obviously). Even though I finished both on the Amiga back in the day, I can never for the life of me remember the solutions to puzzles, whats worse is I 'kinda' know in the dark recesses of my mind, like I'd see an object and remember I need to use it but forget how to obtain it so I get frustrated and delete. :lol: :fp:

Release your anger, there is a better platform for you. Search your feelings Photek, you know it to be true.

Might as well lean into it...

No amount of anger at Father Phil Spencer will make me say goodbye to my Bro's John 117 & Marcus Phoenix, my sisters, Kait Diaz, Senua and Joanna dark. I don't want to leave The blind forest or Albion, Eora, the Sea's of the Ancient Isles, Trumbull Valley and the Wastelands beyond it, will it be for Everwild? I want to Drive around the UK and Australia to see whats on the Horizon, fly across the world in a Cessna and then onward through the stars to The Outer Worlds, and further again past the planets of Reach and Sera to a strange ring world.

I don't want to be merely a Pony.

;)

Yep, exactly the same for me. I can still never remember -

The ingredients for the pot
The skeleton puzzle
The spitting contest
The hand gesture at the door

Basically, every time i play it it feels like its been tweaked like a rogue-lite :fp: That's why i don't mind buying it over and over ;)

Not much. But it will be good to have Armed and Dangerous. I have fond memories of that, but only ever had it on PC, and it played awfully on my machine.

With Forza Horizon 3 being delisted at the end of September I would have thought that would be a GWG as is tradition.

If anyone hasn't already got the Survival add on for The Division you should pick it up. It was my fav part of The Division and the best BR I've played.

Yes, I'll take the opportunity to download De Blob 2. I hated it at first but warmed to it a little bit.

God knows how many times I've bought MI2...probably Amiga, PC, Xbox Special Edition x2, iPad and PC again (also got again as a Games with Gold title and again with a multipack of Lucasarts games on GOG)!

FFS, they’ve moved “recent achievements” to the Notifications tab now. I wish they wouldn’t piss about making such pointless, arbitrary changes.

I found a 3 month Xbox live gold membership code from 2006 and I decided to enter it into my Xbox today to see what happened and...it converted to a month of Gamepass Ultimate! Paid up till 2022. Still haven't actually paid for a month of Ultimate yet. It's crazy.

There’s been a lot of fuss about Super Lucky’s Tale DLC. To start with, the original game and its DLC had to be delisted when the new version was released. To get round people being unhappy about not being able to buy the original DLC, they bundled free downloads of the original game and DLC in with the new version. But only if you bought it. Game Pass downloaders didn’t get the old-version DLC.

Cue much complaining, leading to the decision that they would provide free download keys to anyone who could prove they owned the original game. They we’re flooded with requests. So now, they’ve made the original two DLC packs completely free for everyone.
