Might as well get it started. Who's looking forward to it? I personally think that it could beat PS5, that is if they don't screw up. They need a basic UI, more first party titles, and focus only on gaming. They own the license to Rare games, we need to see new Conkers, Perfect Dark, Banjo Kazooie, etc. They did alright with Killer Instinct, I'll give them that, but they're sitting on a lot of games that needs remade, remastered, and sequels.
As far as I know, it's slightly more powerful than the PS5, which isn't a big deal. But what is a big deal is that it will come with more storage. XBSX will have 1TB, which I admit, is not much by today's standards. The PS5 will have 825GB, which is ridiculous. I'm guessing that the next gen games will be around 100gb or more in size on average. If that is the case, I expect the discs will be on 4k UHD blu-rays.

Seems like it, but not 100% sure. Seems like that stuff is turned off for the demo. But it is definitely a not so great first person shooter MMO with bullet sponge enemies and horrible gun play. Terrible story and horrible pacing.

How many of these need to fail before they pack it in?

The older Xbox One discussion got closed, so I'll put this here, as GamePass info is relevant to the Series consoles as well.
Leaving GP in ~2 weeks (normally on the 16th) is:
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
Kona
Alvastia Chronicles
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Has anyone played The Touryst? What started out as a nice little relaxing island hopping adventure quickly degenerated into one of the most frustrating experiences I've had in recent memory. Holy crap.

I beat this game and got all achievements but I almost had to start an order for a new series x controller. Relaxing game early on turns into a rage fest later on with some of the crap you have to do to 100% it. This game starts out as a lie - relaxing and kinda charming. It only stays that way if you don't want to get full completion

I played The Touryst a bit but got confused about where to go next/what to actually do.

I just kinda wandered around for a while until things started making sense. But the game takes a huge stressful turn after about the halfway mark and becomes a test of human patience. If I weren't committed by then to get all the achievements I would have quit.

Damn, I bought that game on Switch like a year and a half ago when it first released. Haven't played it yet and after reading that I'm kinda not in a hurry now. Though I wouldn't be going for 100% anyway because without achievements/trophies on Switch I find less incentive to do that unless the game really deserves it.

There's fun to be had. And you may actually appreciate it more because you won't go achievement hunting

I think for the first time ever I finished Halo today. Great game
.. but man those warthog controls are janky, but the game is what 20 years old. On to Halo 2 next. But I may try some Doom eternal or Dirt 5 next.

Also, those cut scenes at the beginning of Halo 2? Were those added for the anniversary edition? I don't remember them and they look to good IMO to be that old lol.

That's a nice set of new games in GP. It's a touch misleading though as some are simply coming back into the service and others are available already. Several are new, so I'm not complaining.

Doom Enternal is already up... And I am sure Fallout 76 is also. Regardless that's a great list. I bought Doom 1-3 all on PlayStation, was kinda hoping the one just before Doom Eternal would show up though.

Stoked about Morrowind and Oblivion coming back. I didn't get around to playing them last time. I downloaded Morrowind last night, and man does that game look rough. But I'm going to play through it anyways. Might take me 2 years, but I'll do it damn it.
