    Friendly reminder that, any time you're having issues, your best bet is to check this.

    I had some issues the other night - Thurs or Fri, can't remember now - where I couldn't get a game on Halo 5. Matchmaking just kept failing. Then YouTube wouldn't connect. I checked the above link, and they were having issues with purchasing/launching content, so I guess things are a bit flaky lately, for some reason (saying that, everything's been fine for me since that hiccup).

    Also, shuffles, have you tried the 'Go Offline' option? If there are connection problems, the console sometimes just gets stuck in a loop of trying and failing to connect to online services, and going offline will just let you, well, play offline.

    No idea if that'll work with GP titles, though. My head says no, but I haven't tried it. For owned content though, it'll work.

    This looks really good in a Breath of the Wild "inspired" type game. Don't have a switch and this might feel the game quite nicely. Will wait on reviews

    Hmm, looks a bit unpolished but could be alright.

    Live is being flaky again. Tried to load up the MCC twice only for it to ask me if I own the game. Third time's the charm luckily, as I couldn't be arsed to get up and put the disc in.

    There is a service alert atm, just in case anyone else is having issues.

    Mcc worked for me earlier tonight at 10pm or so. Now watching john wick 2 at long last after it not working for days.

    Ms support were no help, but a router reset sorted it rather oddly. No idea why when hard reset etc didn't work. Never had to do that before!

    Live is certainly being a bit more flaky these days for some reason.

    I wasnít having any problems before but I couldnít sign into Xbox live at all last night. Hope they sort it out by this evening, very annoying not to be able to access loads of content.

    Is Dead Rising 4 any good?

    Itís alright, but I much preferred the first two. I actually liked the time mechanics in those, which this one is missing. That might actually be a good thing for some people of course.

    It's alright for a quick laugh but there is absolutely no substance to it so a perfect game for gamepass.

    Capcom heroes mode helps with how boring Dead Rising 4. Playing it in standard mode is fucking boring

    Many of my old Lego 360 games are updating, guessing itís not due to some enchantments. Bit odd after all this time though and strange itís more than one. Also had hectic and the old viva piŮatas going off as well. Also knights of the old republic 2. Looks like a load of stuff getting some love.

    If its a bunch of 360 games its likely its the emulator that's being patched in each of them.

    Has anyone seen any Xbox one X deals around at the moment? My older son has become a Halo fan and I can't get on my machine.

    Time to get another machine, and when Scarlett arrives I'll upgrade my machine and then give the older X to my younger son to upgrade the old Xbox one.

    The console you linked is very smart.
    Anyway he is doing it all wrong dai, he wants to become a Gears fan. Then you can buy him the sexy Gears 5 console.
    MS do lovely limited edition consoles and pads, the one area they have Sony beat...although I'm sure Sony are fine with that!

    I've got Gears 4 to play after Batman. I must admit I'm not that excited to play it. Much like playing through Halo 5. It was just so vanilla.

    @Ror
    ;)
    I was watching Max and Paddy (again) a couple of weeks back. The episode with the pig "pigs on board" has had me crying with laughter. It is good but not a patch on Phoenix Nights.
    A similar situation between a certain two MS behemoths I feel.

    You're right DUFF, Forza Motorsport 7 is very good but not a patch on Forza Horizon 4. :cool: ;)

    @brokentusk I don't think so, because I remember thinking it was weird I needed emails for my kids accounts on my XB1 when I hadn't needed them on x360. Just use a junk email.
