Insane month. Never heard of Hydro Thunder but looks like a HD make of one of my favourite PS1 games Rapid Racer. All in.

Not a very good month :/ Should have been FH2 or 3 and not the terrible FM5.

 

Only one I don't own is Hydro Thunder - I remember playing the trial and almost instantly deleting it. I too was reminded of Rapid Racer when it launched, but it's nowhere near in the same league.

 

Hopefully October is better.

If they add more than they take out on average, and the titles in the library are good, then the value and cost makes good sense for someone looking to pay once and binge on as many games as they can for a month or however long they feel like paying for.

Nothing that grabs my attention other than RE7, but I can hold off on that still, it'll go up on sale again for sure.

Ooh, got The Crews addon.  I finished the game on X1, got it on PC later but haven't put much time into it the second time around (actually, usually the case when I buy on a second platform apparently.  I guess I can stop doing that.)

I think the first Hydro Thunder was free before, or maybe it was that one. I think we have it.

 

Oxenfree is supposed to be real good. I got it on my phone, but I'm not sure I'll ever play it on the phone. I'm just not much of a phone gamer. I've tried the basic phone games, and they're okay for a minute or two, but for a real game, I wanna be looking at a monitor or a TV with a controller or mouse in my hand.

 

Hard pass on the other two, though I'll add 'em if I get Gold again in time because we got the 2TB XB1S so why not.

 

Wife's Gold expired a couple weeks ago. We got everything in August, and I guess we have until October 15 to re-up. Any good deals on Gold?

Yes. Games with Gold games can be redeemed from Xbox.com here or from the Xbox 360 dashboard.

 

To do it from the 360, look for the advert on the 'Home' tab for Deals with Gold / Games with Gold, (currently the graphic for the deals is of Chun Li from Street Fighter with "save 75%" text). That will take you to two tabs of which one where you can browse the Games with Gold games. Select Forza 5 GOTY and choose "Get for Xbox One".

 

If you want to redeem the games from Xbox.com you will be asked to save a payment method to your account. However, you can redeem games from the Xbox 360 without a saved payment method.

Worth noting that SW Battlefront Season Pass is free. Worth claiming in any event they give away the game in GwG sometime. The Ultimate Edt of the game is super cheap if you'd rather buy now, though.

I remember playing, or trying to, virtual on in the arcades back in the day.   Could never win but hey, it was cool with the dual joystick setup and so on.

Hmm is the mass effect Andromeda delux edition at 40 euros worth it or should I just get the normal game at 20?  Because at 20 I figure it's worth it for sure.

Looking at what you get, I'd say probably not. 

 

Looks to be a few weapons and outfits. If there were new areas to explore, then maybe.

That's what I figured, I'll just grab the game itself for 20e then.

      Next Halo: MCC flight to test cross-play, input-based matchmaking, and more
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      343 Industries just wrapped up the Halo: ODST launch on PC - watch out for our review later today - and already, the studio is prepping the next game that's incoming to the Halo: The Master Chief Collection. In its latest Flighting Update, the studio said Halo 4 tests are slated to begin next month, and it should also bring in several highly requested features by the community.

      Players across Xbox One, Microsoft Store, and Steam will be enrolled in this test, and if the current plans hold together, portions of Halo 4's campaign, Spartan Ops, and multiplayer will arrive in this flight. Updated Halo 4 Spartan customization options, Forge, Theater, and new Challenges will be a part of this session too.

      Meanwhile, on the Master Chief Collection changes side, the long-time-coming input-based matchmaking and cross-play capabilities are planned for this flight as well, letting PC and Xbox One players join together on the same servers. In a previous update, the studio said the chosen input device will lock in once matchmaking is initiated, with only non-competitive modes like Firefight and Infection allowing both platforms to join together.

      343 Industries is also aiming to push the server region selection feature into this upcoming flight. If the tests pan out, all of these features should land alongside Halo 4's launch on PC later this year.

      Halo fans interested in gaining access to these testing sessions can become a Halo Insider by heading here. Existing members were also encouraged to update their profiles if they have made any changes to their systems.

      Amazon warns Xbox Series X preorders might get delayed
      by Garg Ankit

      After a long wait, pre-orders went live for the Xbox Series X a few days ago. As you can probably imagine, it was sold out pretty quickly. Microsoft then announced that it is not a cause of worry since retailers will have additional units available on launch day.

      Now, according to CNET, Microsoft has sent out emails to customers who pre-ordered the Xbox Series X, warning them that the console may not arrive by launch day.

      The email reads,

      The Verge reports that Amazon has also sent out an email to people who ordered the gaming console on their platform, cautioning them that their preorders might get delayed. Several people took to Twitter to confirm the same.

      Amazon had sent a similar email for Sony's upcoming console, the Playstation 5, as well. Xbox Series X and Series S are launching on November 10, while Playstation 5 is releasing two days later on November 12. Microsoft has prioritized India as it will get the consoles the same day as the rest of the world, while PS5 will arrive a week later.

      Editor's note: This content of this article has been updated after publication to reflect that Amazon has sent out emails to customers to inform them that their Xbox Series X preorders might get delayed, not Microsoft. We apologize for the oversight.

      Microsoft's new Xbox app is now available in beta for iOS devices
      by Jefferson Mangubat

      Microsoft has launched the new Xbox app (beta) on iOS a few days after rolling it out to Android devices. The app features console remote play and allows you to install any games remotely, among other capabilities.

      Harrison Hoffman, Senior Program Manager for Xbox, announced the app's release today via a Twitter post. However, for those who would like to join the beta testing using Apple’s TestFlight app, the program has now been closed.

      That said, you can still sign up for the beta testing in the future once Apple removes inactive testers. Just like its Android counterpart, the Xbox beta app for iOS features a capability that allows players to share game clips and screenshots directly from their iPhone, brings a unified notification center, and much more. Of course, it also has a refreshed design language.

      The beta app supports iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 8 or later. However, you must have iOS 14 beta or later in order to use the app clips feature.
