Case in point. While Other World was rumored to come out, it hit the website and everything *before* Valiant Hearts.

Is the Ryse season pass worth it?

$9.99 sounds pretty solid if you like the mp. I don't have the game anymore so I can't comment on the population. But if you want to try and beast everything solo maybe you will enjoy the challenge.

The Ryse deal is stupid. The game is 7 months old now.

Are we considering a game is "old" at 7 months ? It doesn't seem that much when you think about it. I know that most of a game sales happen in its first 3 months, but it doesn't mean it isn't worth anything past that date.

It is really strange how they do the Xbox Store for One games. The Witcher 3 and Shadow of Mordor have been up for a few days, and weeeks.

Yeah, I noticed that today. Must be some sort of error.


And one of them is not like the other ones..
So much for the Boss trying to be stealth.

Thanks for your patience! Digital downloads are available gradually throughout the day, so you'll be able to play #ValiantHearts very soon!

Via Twitter. Kind of miss the old days of knowing it'd be around 2/5am p/e for releases. Now they are so random.
Ouch. They have less than 800 followers. Hope that doesn't hurt them.

Should I buy Vanquish for that price? I remember hearing some good things about the game and I have some money left on my XBL account.

It's old enough to get a 50% discount, not a silly 17%.
I already own the game, but I still think it's a cheap move to have this as a "Deals With Gold".

If Microsoft didn't feel it was old enough to get a solid deal, then they should have waited with it.

Well considering it already had a 33% discount in February it's disappointing to see a 17% discount as part of an official Deals with Gold promo.

Vanquish is a pretty solid title. Thanks to Gaf. I picked that up many months ago.
And yeah, Ryse for $10 off is pretty weak. The Season Pass price is decent though.

Almost done with Watch Dogs. Then have Strider to play. Or go back to 360 to play Revengeance.

Experience and explore a surreal 1920s dreamscape a vaudevillian, film noir-inspired almost-reality. In a world full of performance, intrigue and deception, you play as Dawn, the imaginary friend of a little girl, Didi. Every kid’s imaginary friend is special, and you have powers that no one else does – you can walk up to a lit wall, and become your shadow. You can shift in and out of your shadow, at any lit surface, to help Didi explore the mysteries

Found a way for potential awesome wall paper.
Don't know how to easily extract them. On the Xbox Store page view source, search "superhero" and then there is the 1080 background. Change end of URL to PNG. When changing the dimensions in the URL some don't work.

Some are really pretty, example for Contrast. HERE.

It's that time. Looking for title suggestions and such.
Guacamelee is a strong contender for the main tile, with Sniper on the side.

Xbox.com is finally getting an update next week to include One social content.
Think of it as how it is now, but not just 360 comparisons etc.

Now the store has Homefront: The Revolution on the store..even though it's a year away?


Four years into the brutal military occupation, America is on its knees. Philadelphia - once the birthplace of Independence - has become a ghetto, where surveillance drones and armoured patrols keep the population at heel, crushing any dissent with savage force. Her once-proud citizens live in a police state, forced to collaborate just to survive, their dreams of freedom long since extinguished. But in the badlands of the Red Zone, in the bombed out streets and abandoned subways, a Resistance is forming. A guerrilla force, determined to fight for their freedoms despite overwhelming odds and ignite the second American Revolution. But Freedom always has a price… Homefront: The Revolution is an open-world first person shooter where you must lead the Resistance movement in guerrilla warfare against a superior military force. A living, breathing, open world responds to your actions - you and your Resistance Cell can inspire a rebellion on the streets and turn Occupation into Revolution, as oppressed civilians take up the fight. But your enemy has the advantage - superior technology, firepower, heavy armour and air support. You must learn the art of guerrilla warfare – ambush, sabotage, infiltration, deception – and fight a running battle through the war-ravaged suburbs of Philadelphia. And the single player campaign is just the start – in Co-Op you and your friends can form your own Resistance Cell and become renowned as Heroes of the Revolution

If I recall correctly, the Xbox 360 store used to have entries up for games long before release. It was just a place for them to link to trailers and screenshots.

I hope so. I don't usually but digitals but Halo MCC will be a digital purchase for me.

Pre-loading would be good.
The pages for games coming out in a looong time only have pictures.

And it says Homefront is snappable?

That would be interesting if games had snappable features that you could use, not necessarily the game. Maybe if you snapped the Master Chief Collection it would give you Halo Waypoint-ish features. Not sure, sort of thinking out loud here.

Snappable Waypoint sounds good..like the Achievements. Hope Stinkles or someone at 343 has proposed that.

Almost like a companion app, but it just runs side by side giving you updates or different information when playing a game. Cool idea.

I hope I haven't missed a reply to this at some point, but:

Someone posted a link a while back that was essentially doing this same thing for every released title. Unfortunately, there must be some manual labor to it, because this hasn't been updated since Titanfall came out. I bookmarked this link "ages ago" - but found it pretty great for some of the Ryse and Titanfall backgrounds. Sorry to whomever did the work for this - I didn't mean to forget and I'd give you credit if I remembered who you were...

Edit: Found him! I'll reach out and see if he is planning on updating... Old Reddit Post

My Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack review is up.

Check it out if you want, I personally think the game is a great excuse to dust off your 360 if platformers are your thing.

Have that bookmarked. But like you said it stopped after Titanfall.

Stupid cats. I put my sandwich on the counter for a second and they knocked it down and ate it.
Had HULU playing and "Xbox Pause" did nothing. I never walked up to the microphone, and from an inch away "Xbox Pause" did nothing. Most other commands always work though. It's weird.
