The timing of this is kinda funny given the Switch Online 64 news and my earlier qpost but


Today is a good time to note that if Nintendo had a $10/month sub w/ every 1st party game pre WiiU/3DS emulated + a rotating selection of 3rd parties it would immediately be the best & most successful subscription in gaming, leap frogging Game Pass


Pretty massive news here. By no means is the merger killed, but if the US and UK regulators are successful w/ their suit, it would literally change the course of history. No bullshit, this merger is huge (and would be fucking awful)


This was genuinely anxiety inducing (fr, tiny ribbon cables should be banned under federal law) but putting an SSD in my One X has been game changing (literally). I load back from MP games basically at the same time as my buddies with Series X's


So I'm supposed to post a picture of the box and go "what's in the box?!" And then you're supposed to check the replies to see what's in the box? Did I do this right?


Crazy what being affordable and in stock will do for your product!


I read this as Kotick + the Board (a) trying to appease shareholders + employees, claiming a "fix" can happen under him and (b) keeping the door open for him to resign and save face, likely with a large bonus


Yea. Okay. Sold.


Wow. Surprising reversal from Rockstar. The original versions of the GTA Trilogy are being *relisted* on PC, and given as free copies to those who bought the DE versions. Pretty damning acknowledgement that your product sucks, but good news nonetheless


Yea that's a wrap on Kotick. He'll be resigning before the Thanksgiving weekend is over.


I understand the reports that Microsoft is apparently pushing Spencer to establish a successor plan, but man -- you cannot get rid of this dude, I'm sorry. He is Xbox now. Period.




I'm not saying you're morally justified in pirating Rockstar games. That is definitely not what I'm saying in this post. Please don't misinterpret this as me condoning or promoting piracy of Take Two intellectual property. But-

I'm not buying the GTA Remasters but San Andreas is on Game Pass so I'm playing it. Opinions on the visuals aside, this game is a technical fucking mess and plays identical to the PC version, just with a new controller mapping. How is this $20? lol


Your regularly scheduled reminder to set up code based 2 factor authentication on literally everything and never give said code to anyone


Holy shit. That was quick.


Point: achievements are dumb and nobody cares about them. Counterpoint: on the 15 year anniversary of getting my Xbox 360, I just crossed the 100K mark which actually feel pretty fucking cool lol


Played Dead Space 1 for the first time this year and adored it. Absolutely brilliant game that hasn't aged a day. I just started the sequel and it feels like a generic third person shooter wearing the corpse of Dead Space? The fuck happened here??


Very good news after Hanger 13 (Mafia III) had their project canned. My bet is they'll be transitioned to co-develop the Bioshock project being made (literally) next door at Cloud Chamber. It was widely speculated that team has wanted to jump ship there


We're reaching the point where most of the major 2022 releases were delayed 2020-21 titles. I'm curious what else from this list is being pushed back. Any bets? The "TBD 2022" list (in the replies) is even more sus tbh


After patching out the issue on PS4 earlier this year, Sony has reportedly also fixed the "C-Bomb" issue on PS5. Surprising but very welcome news that is super important for games preservation. Much credit to Sony for doing the right thing here


I weep for this cancelled project (a new IP from Valve!!) but boy. This thread is also wild. Link below.


*Goat emoji* (not sure if Qtoid supports emojis, so pretend I put one here)


Black Mesa is on sale, and while I beat the mod (many years ago) I haven't touched the "final game" w/ Xen. Bought it and immediately remembered why I don't game on PC anymore lol. I'm too lazy for this shit, man. Consoles have spoiled me

I'm an (aging) dude who plays games and comments about stuff. Been on Dtoid since 2010-ish, back during the Jim Sterling days, though this account's a bit newer than that. Don't post on the FP anymore but you can find me on Qtoid and the Cblogs.

I also stream on Twitch sometimes, if you're interested:
