Overcooked is a ton of fun with local multiplayer.

Re: Xbox One: S $249 Now / X $499 November 7 2017

Since I have a 360 again I was going through my list of digital 360 games to see how many I had left that weren't backwards compatible and it was less than I thought.

Not counting games that got rereleased on the Xbox One:
Arkadian Warriors
Bejeweled Blitz Live
Bionic Commando Rearmed (sequel is BC but not original)
Bomberman Live (sequel is BC but not original)
Costume Quest (sequel is BC but not original)
Deathspank (sequel is BC but not original)
Doritos Crash Course 2 (original is BC but not sequel)
Doritos Dash of Destruction
Gauntlet
Haunt
Hydrophobia
Islands of Wakfu
Penny Arcade Episodes 1-4
Puzzle Arcade
Robotron 2084
Rock Band Blitz
Roogoo
Scott Pilgrim The Game
Sealife Safari
TMNT The Arcade Game
Uno
Wallace & Gromit
Watchmen
Yaris

I'm not likely to replay any of those other than Roogoo (which is a really fun puzzle game that I never finished) and Rock Band Blitz (which will sadly never be BC) but still some interesting titles some of which I was surprised had never been made BC.

Regarding the thread title: The One S isn't $249 anymore, is it?

The 500GB models are still $249, although MS seems to be pushing the 1TB model for $299 now. You can still find 500GB models available at some retailers.

Walmart has a bundle with the 500GB XB1S, an extra wired controller, GTAV, and a VR headset for only $248:

https://www.theverge.com/2018/10/8/1...games-features

Microsoft is unveiling its game streaming service for the first time today. Dubbed Project xCloud, it’s designed to work across consoles, PCs, and even mobile devices. “Scaling and building out Project xCloud is a multi-year journey for us,” explains Microsoft’s cloud gaming chief Kareem Choudhry. “We’ll begin public trials in 2019 so we can learn and scale with different volumes and locations.”

Microsoft has built custom hardware for its datacenters, as The Verge previously exclusively reported, so that existing and future Xbox games will be compatible with the services. Games will be streamed to devices, and Microsoft has been testing the xCloud service with Xbox wireless controllers connected to consoles, mobile devices, and PCs. Microsoft says its research teams are “creating ways to combat latency” via advanced network techniques combined with video encoding and decoding. This should make game streaming viable on 4G networks, too.
I don't really buy that this will be viable, but I guess we'll see.

So, looks like Xbox just wiped every single avatar item ever owned with the newest update.

Damn, even more added today. If they keep this up, I'll eventually be able to retire my 360.

Half-Life 2: The Orange Box, Portal: Still Alive, Left 4 Dead, and Left 4 Dead 2

Are those all the games that use the Source engine? It sort of makes sense that if they get one game running the engine to work, all the other ones would work as well.

I think the only games left in my 360 library that aren't BC now are Remember Me (fingers crossed it'll still happen!), Scott Pilgrim (never gonna happen, dammit.), and the two DJ Hero games (never gonna happen without magically supporting the turntable hardware)

Those are not new... I already have The Orange Box and Portal Still Alive installed (though they have updates today), and Left for Dead's were released prior too. I wonder if they got pulled and re-released...

No they just got X enhanced today. They've been BC for awhile now.

Anyone on XB1 trying the Fallout 76 Beta that just started for Xbox users...was wanting to hear some feedback since there's no official Fallout 76 topic yet.

They've been doing this for a decade or so. Has anyone heard of anyone actually winning?
