    Wow that's awesome, my favorite single player game ever
    No, you have to download it in the couple weeks its available, but its permanent after that. You can even delete it off your xbox once its downloaded and you'll be able to redownload for free

    Who else is looking forward to Super Mega Baseball 2?

    Surprised me to see a brand new game on the free list.

    Got the One X for my 4k HDR tv a few months back, and honestly, wishing I went the way of PS4 Pro. If I didn't have my EASHL friends on XBL, I would make the switch. Where are the good exclusives?

    I'm experiencing a similar feeling.

    I went ahead and sold off the PS4 Pro because I wasn't using it much, and picked up a One X. Which I now don't use really at all.

    Then you see God of War come out for PS4 and wonder what the heck Microsoft is doing. Sea of Thieves is a lot of fun, but Sony apparently understands the desire for great single player games.

    The One X is a fantastic piece of hardware, but that's of little use when I really don't have much to play on it. Game Pass helps, but I've exhausted most of what I wanted to do with it already (Halo 5, basically), aside from maybe replaying 360 games.

    Pretty much same here.

    I have a high end gaming PC, but i basically use it for Rocket League and replaying old games I beat years ago. I remember when I was younger, like 11-12-13 watching my Uncle play games like Half Life and Diablo amongst others, and pining so hard to be able to be older and have money to buy my own console/gaming pc. Now I have both and feel like games just aren't what they used to be.

    But like you said, you see God of War, Horizon, Spiderman, Detroit, and I am sitting here feeling like Im just missing out. The One X is used to play my DDP Yoga DVD's, and some NHL Online stuff but thats about it.

    I held back on upgrading to a One X because the exclusives for this generation were lacking and Microsoft hasn't done much to rectify that. Even the exclusives they did have were just okay. They really need to have a monster E3 because all mine is good for right now is Diablo III.

    I play a lot on my PC, although a lot of that is also Rocket League. :laugh:

    I've had a bit of a lull lately in games as well, which is probably a good thing considering the Steam backlog I have....

    I was suckered in by the tech and, to the One X's credit, it runs exceptionally well. Price-to-performance, it's a great deal. Unfortunately, as you mention, there's just not a lot of interesting games for it right now.

    Since my Xbox was updated today all my controllers are going crazy in the Dashboard. Anyone having this problem?

    I got an Xbox One a year and a half ago. I had a PS4 and like Xbox a lot more. However, the controller's durability is definitely a problem. I got a second white controller, and after six months the right stick had a problem where it constantly thought it was being pushed up a little bit. It caused a ton of problems you wouldn't expect.

    The original controller that came with it has held up, but the A button gets stuck in every few weeks and needs rubbing alcohol to be applied to help it.

    I dont get the nostalgia thats driving the sales of the new Duke controller. Its a god awful controller design that Microsoft quickly ditched the first go around because nearly everyone hated it. I had one. No one wanted them and immediately bought S controllers when they came out.

    Blehhhhhhh

    Honestly I've had my eye on the razer controllers for awhile now, I just can't justify the price.

    Somewhere along the line having a memory of something had to be mistaken for having nostalgia for it.
