    See Ghostbusters is on sale.
    Is it playable? Reviews from last year on the Xbox store saying it crashes a lot

    Hmmmm that reminds me of Interstate 76, that was a cool game.

    AC Origins and Odyssey could do with some boosting (I still can't reach 60fps even with a Ryzen 3600), but I have a feeling the Series S would be left out of the party.

    Having had series X for a few weeks, I'm now finding it pretty tough to go back to games at 30.

    Hopefully they'll do Dishonored 2 soon... Unless it being missed from the first big batch of Bethesda games means it can't be done...
    I just saw death of the outsider on the list yesterday so surely 2 can't be far behind given it's actually older.

    Evil Within 2 for me can now be listed in one of my favourite horror games after the FPS boost. What a game.

    I didn't realise that Tetris Effect didn't default to HDR until yesterday.

    It looks fucking amazing now! It looked pretty good before but this game is a showcase for HDR just toggle it on and off to see the difference!

    Dying Light, Alien Isolation and Mad Max all interest me at 60fps. I have yet to even start some of these.

    I would love Assassin's Creed Odyssey at 60fps. Going back to it from Valhalla, the combat feels very choppy. Probably not possible using this particular technique.

    Hmmm..Iím pixel-peeping, but Iím sure Far Cry 5 is down-rezzed from 4K on the XSX. Shitter as it was a One X Enhanced game. I may be wrong.
    Hot take: I prefer Far Cry 5 at 30fps and 4K over whatever resolution they settled on at 60fps.

    Normally I crave 60fps, but there is a definite downgrade that you notice when it comes to being able to read the text on the stock of a gun when in ADS, or just general details on guns, or the shimmering of edges. Just got used to stuff in 4K on the CX I guess - it's amazing how quickly you move on.

    I've had Mad Max since forever and never got round to playing it. But booted it up this morning to take a look at it running with FPS boost.

    Still looks half decent, one of the few multi-plats at the time that wasn't languishing in 720p/900p land on Xbox One.

    Actually looks pretty good at 1080p/120fps on Series X.

    Game is quite good too, can feel myself getting into it.

    That was the first game I played when during lockdown. I really enjoyed it.
    I don't know if I'd feel the same in a post-AC-Valhalla world, as that game really burnt me out on open world games with a million chores to do.

    Mad Max is very good, so the FPS Boost is very welcome.

    Assassin's Creed Ezio Collection is running very smoothly now too.

    They should FPS Boost the original Yooka-Laylee. It was always kind of disappointing that the console versions ran at 30fps.
    Spyro Trilogy (which my kid loves) is crying out for a 60fps boost. Can't believe it's stuck to 30 even on the One X.
    This reminds me of last year, when I'd pre-ordered my Series X but it hadn't arrived yet, and my kids were playing Roblox a lot. Some of the levels/games ran like crap on the Xbox One, and I'm being forced to watch this headache-inducing chug. I couldn't wait for them to play it on the new machine! That was the game I was most looking forward to seeing run at a better frame rate!

    What's funny is they've gone off Roblox a bit now. Mostly play Minecraft (actually, they mostly watch YouTube videos of other people playing Minecraft).

    Ahh, spending more time watching people play/talk about games rather than playing themselves. True Gamersô️ indeed.

    It's the Mountain Dew Code Red of controllers. It looks like the best controller to play Gears 2 with.

    If a game has been boosted from 30 to 120fps on Series X, would it boost to 60fps if you don't have a TV capable of the former? Thinking about buying Mad Max.

    Trine 4 is currently free for Gold if you live in South Korea. Or if you temporarily travel there, just saying.

    It actually looks quite nice in HDR. Never played the previous games, so obviously it's a great idea to start from the last one.
    Also:

    All Star Fruit Racing is free in Japan
    Ikaruga is free in Argentina
    The Maw is free in Japan and South Korea
    Red Faction: Armageddon is free in Argentina and South Korea.

    Free and optional 60/120fps modes for last gen console games = shitty tech? Cool.

    @mikew1985 interesting, I hadn't twigged - just assumed that was the add on for Dishonored 1 but you're right. Bit strange they haven't done 2 then... I can only assume there must be something causing a problem for it as it's so conspicuous by its absence.

    My Series X wonít stream from video services anymore for some reason. Disney Plus gives error 39 which seems like a really generic error code when I googled it, All4 just says something went wrong, and Netflix plays audio but the video is black.

    Iíve tried killing apps, restarting etc. Games are fine, and YouTube plays videos fine too. Very odd, Iím guessing itís some kind of video DRM thing.

    @Robospud Possibly try a different HDMI lead? Or see if HDCP is on or off. I can't remember if that's even an option on Xbox but it definitely is on PlayStation. Either way it could be a handshake thing.

    I also only noticed after that, you've to sacrifice 1x enhancements for the framerate to be 60 so perhaps Dishonored 2 is even less well optimised or something, though I don't think it ever got any one x enhancements.
