Really like Gothams depiction of the Penguin. He's a weaselly little shit but I still end up rooting for him.

That girl they got to play catwoman, literally looks like a cat. It's weird.

There is a Gothams TV series?

Yes.

Not sure i'd recommend personally. Season 2 is abit better. Sort of just watch it in the background while doing other thngs. It had some folk championing it, who knows, maybe you'll love it.

Finally took apart my launch PS4 and cleaned it out with compressed air. It's super easy to do, and my console went from a screaming mimi to running as quietly as the day I bought it. Only takes about 15 minutes, too.

@getyeryayasout: I need to do that for my Pro. Sounds like a jet engine. I cleaned the outside thoroughly and there was a shit tonne of dust balls. Can’t imagine what’s brewing inside.

Living in a desert climate, there was quite a bit of dust built up over the past 4+ years of heavy use. Be sure to blow out the power supply really well if you decide to clean yours.

Mine was a launch unit, but it looks even easier to clean a PS4 Pro. Goodluck!

Good thread to ask, games on game pass...are they always there or do they cycle through?

I believe so. Although you do get discounted prices should you wish to buy the game.

I have EA Origin Premier and it's like that. You get a discount on anything related to Origin and between Game Pass & Origin Premier, they are almost alike but Premier let's you download any DLC for that game.

Brought this here so I didn't take that thread off topic. If either of you don't mind helping, signed up for xbox game pass...that's for PC too, right? Or is there a separate one for PC. Saying I don't have any proper devices or something...but I logged into my pc with microsoft account

I'm not sure. @mandzilla was a boss and hooked me up with a game pass subscription he wasn't using last night. I jumped right into the MS Store and was able to download any Game Pass titles.

@Chutebox: From how it works, Game Pass allowed me to download any games from Windows 10 store. I first used it to play Sea of Thieves and later on State of Decay 2. I unsubscribed for months and will return whenever Crackdown 3 releases. Also, the game must say "Xbox Play Anywhere in order to use the Game Pass with the game you are downloading. Remember, Xbox Play Anywhere & Game Pass must be on the game you are trying to play on PC.

@Chutebox from what I can see, it's all the same. You can play Play Anywhere titles on PC, as well as download any games on Xbox One and 360 compatible BC games. I activated through the MS Store on W10, but it shouldn't make any difference, so long as you're utilizing the same account for PC and Xbox One.

You got a link to the game pass games? I'm on MS's game pass page and some let me install but some say i don't have a device.

Try going onto the Windows 10 store, type 'Gamepass' into the search bar, then click "learn more" after which you should be able to choose "show all" under the featured header.

That should display all the Gamepass games, and so long as you're logged into your account I think it will let you download them.

So if you choose a game and go onto its page, it should allow you the option to get the game through your subscription.

@mandzilla Ya, that's what I did. I just tried with Ashen and it has a button to install on your devices, i click it, then it says i don't have applicable devices linked to ms account.

I'm on a trial pass, no clue if that matters.

I can do Gears, Forza, Sea of Thieves, Crackdown 3...but a bunch i get the same thing.

@Chutebox: Hmm, okay I did some more digging and it seems like the PC list isn't quite as expansive as the XB1 list of Gamepass titles. Sorry, I know that sucks, but I could be wrong. Don't have the greatest knowledge of how Gamepass works on PC compared to XB1 I'm afraid. 🙁

Here's the page I found listing all the PC gamepass stuff. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/top-paid/games/pc?IsGamePass=true

Seems like there's about double that for play anywhere games on PC, but I am guessing you need to have an XB1 device linked to your PC in order for that to work. That would explain the message you were getting while trying to download certain things. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/top-paid/games/pc?GameCapabilities=XPA

Damn I totally forgot you need an Xbox One link to your account. I did own an Xbox One before MS share the games on PC but I gave my Xbox One to my daughter which is in her room now and the fact I still have my Xbox One account link, it ties into my Windows 10 PC and I guess it only works if you had an Xbox One before in the past. But however, it should've work for Chutebox without his account linking to Xbox One, i would've hope it work for Xbox 360 at the least but I guess this isn't the case.

Also @Chutebox do you have Windows 10 OS on you're PC? If so, you should still be able to link to your account on Windows 10 cause I link to my XBL on my PC.

@Chutebox: Hey, no worries dude. I know my posts might have been confusing to read (confused myself anyway), but from what I've tried to find out in the last 15 mins or so I think this is how it works...

There's no standalone Gamepass service as such for the PC. Basically, you're getting the option to download the 'Play Anywhere' games on your PC which are included with Gamepass, such as Gears, Sea of Thieves, Forza and Crackdown 3 when it comes out. It seems like you get more value out of the service atm if you own an XB1 since the list of games there is larger. Not all Gamepass titles can be played on PC, but Microsoft has said something will be coming soon. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-10-25-microsoft-says-xbox-game-pass-is-coming-to-pc

I believe the new exclusives are all play anywhere however, so things like Crackdown 3 and any new Gears/Halos will be available to you as a PC gamer. You can always cancel a membership before it expires and get yourself a full refund, even if you spent all month playing the games. Unethical? Yes... but why wouldn't you! 😏

@Chutebox: Same here man. But yeah, you're still getting access to all the new first-party Xbox games which is nice. The other stuff on Gamepass can be picked up pretty cheap elsewhere on PC, so not like you're missing out on too much really. :)

So, on an Amazon sale, I picked up SNK Heroines (...shut up) for $20 (US). Not bad so far, but for fighting developers as revered as SNK, you'd think they'd do better in making a fighting game developed for casual players. Sadly, not the case, Capcom and Namco Bandai have published better games with a similar goal (less fanservice however), all the while not forgetting the fighting enthusiasts, and each with anime/manga licensed no doubt, which this game feels like said anime/manga licensed titles (which I tend to be apologetic too, except Bleach: Shattered Blade... seriously, f that game, that said, even Netherrealm Studios seems to be taking hints from anime/manga licensed fighters in some regard, looking at how easy the X-Ray system in recent MK games).

Other design choices, like how both fighters rely on the same health bar, annoy me too.

The way it works, DX11=Nvidia 7 DX12=AMD. Even my own GTX 1080Ti was having issues with DX12 and I switch it back to DX11 and the game run just fine.

DX12 flop and MS acknowledge it.

Na, been playing Legend Of Heroes: Trials Of The Sky prior to RE2.

Gotham does get abit better second half of season 2I think. Got mildly excited when Hugo Strange showed up. He's always been an underrated villain.

Dislike how he and Black Mask in the trailers made it seem like they would be the main villains in Arkham games but it always ended up being the Joker, the most overused and overdone fucker.

That guy doing the Riddler is pretty good as well. He and penguin were done well.
