    Xbox One backwards compatibility - Server Runtime Error

    When did Burnout Revenge get added to BC? More importantly does it still stand up nowadays?

    Nier Automata or Final Fantasy XV are probably better choices.
  3. Fight Night Round 3 was really good when it was released. I have a soft spot for Ready 2 Rumble.

    What games did you complete? 2018 Edition

    12/11 - The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit (Xbox One) - A short prelude to Life is Strange 2. Nothing really happens, but it does capture the vivid imagination of a young child. Previously:

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I think that list makes sense. I think in both cases based on the characters involved you’d have had to do some side quests for them to trigger.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Yeah - some are optional. I got an achievement for doing all the optional missions, which confused me - as I hadn't realised any were.

    11/11 - Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition (Xbox One) - Third time lucky for Sleeping Dogs. I've always liked the setting (Hong Kong) and the general idea (an undercover cop), but have struggled to get more than a few hours in before abandoning it. I purchased it on the 360 and again on the PS4 and both times I found the hand to hand combat an unresponsive mess. However, this time on the Xbox One (thanks to Games with Gold) I persevered. The hand to hand combat is all about being aggressive, stringing together combos and using strong/heavy attacks. Trying to be clever and dodging doesn't work. Once you figure that out, it clicks and whilst the hand to hand combat is nowhere near as good as something like Yakuza or a proper action game, it's functional and not the game breaker that it was on my previous attempts to play this. As for the game itself, it's very good. Open world, decent enough storyline, plenty of side quests, but sorely lacking in the humour you'd find in a Yakuza of GTA. It also looks like a previous generation game, I don't think they spent too long improving the visuals for the Xbox One re-release. Still, well worth a play if you see it cheap. Previously:

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    Frogger was the 5th best selling PS1 game? Frogger? That can’t be right.

    Your Very Best Gaming Year

    In your opinion. Again that’s a list of more games that do nothing for me.

    Your Very Best Gaming Year

    Pretty mediocre imo. MGS V was great. The rest? Meh. A year redeemed by Yakuza 5’s belated release in December.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    The PAL Dreamcast output in PAL 60. You could run games in 60Hz through the supplied RF cable on a non NTSC compatible TV. A lot of Sega's early releases were bordered 50Hz only. Stuff like VF3, Sega Rally, Zombie Revenge, Dynamite Cop, House of the Dead had no 60Hz option. It would make my life easier if I could just buy the PAL release and play via VGA at the correct speed.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    So the PAL versions of Virtua Fighter 3; Sega Rally 2 etc run at the correct speed?

    Free Games On Xbox

    If you compare the editions of PES it does seem to be the full game for free. I already own it. And PUBG. Bah!

    The Sega Dreamcast appreciation thread

    Skies is only the PAL version. They added RGB support but removed VGA.
