You could also use the famous "Belt" names that were well known here.

Like Dirty Fishstick, or Whitest Cracker.

I have been using a few belts but I definitely need to be reminded of some and also finish looking through what we have here. I have not named anything a Dirty Fishstick though so that is definitely going to happen next time I play.

Just go through the members list and find names you remember. Also click on thier profiles and see if they have a belt that you know they've had for damn near 10 years.

Like "King Axel" "Mustard Man" and "Glow Stick Commander"

I've been out of the modern market for awhile. I'm mostly retro, but I guess I could post some things in here talking about some of the games if you guys would be half interested.

I might download the demo but since I'm already picking it up anyway I may just wait. How big is the demo in terms of content?

It's pretty fucking big. It's an 18 GB download, and with how much of the map they give you, it makes sense. You do a couple races in a variety of cars, then pick what car you want out of five, and they just let you roam. complete races, challenges, etc. Honestly, the map in this demo feels like it's damn near the size of the entire map from Horizon 1.

That's pretty cool but I think I'll just wait for the full game to experience it all. I was very happy to find out today that the game will support the Xbox/Win10 music feature so, apparently as I haven't messed with this program yet myself, you can just drag and drop a bunch of mp3 music files into the OneDrive/Groove app and Forza Horizon 3 will allow you to play your own music in game through this which is a HUGE plus for me as I HAVE to have my own music while playing a racing game. I was going to find a way to do this regardless since I'll mostly be playing the Win10 version, but its nice to see this as a feature.

Picked up ReCore yesterday on Xbox One. Almost didn't buy it because the reviews were all over the place but I'm glad I did. It's a pretty rad game so far despite a lot of glaring technical issues which really keep this from being the polished game I wish it was. Still, its so fucking charming that I'm able to look past all that. This is a video game as video game. Almost like a B tier game you would have played in the late 90s early 00s. Its an action platformer very reminiscent of something like Jak and Daxter or Ratchet and Clank with maybe some Zelda mixed in. Its got some really cool mechanics for combat and the platforming and the control you have of your character is some of the best I've seen in years. Makes me really miss this type of double A games we used to get back in the day. Maybe wait for a patch or three or when its cheaper but so far I give it a thumbs up.

Well, unless I just didn't fully explore all the options available to me, it would appear that MS wants to charge for the ability to stream music from my PC that I already fucking own to the Xbox One (which in my case is literally 6 feet from my PC) and I'm tired of paying for music services just to listen to shit I already own so I guess I'll just mostly be playing on Windows.

And Mags, as of right now I think I'm going to have to work Tuesday during the day (my fault for not preparing) so I probably won't be on until 5 or so, so set aside some time to run through the new Destiny missions with me please.

You can upload your own music into your OneDrive account (5 GB is free). From there Groove will pull those files that are in your music folder in Groove. You can then created playlists in Groove.
I haven't tested this yet but from my understanding you can then play those Playlist your created in Groove directly in FH3.


That's a quote I got from Reddit. I don't know myself, all of my music is through Spotify (great on the PS4, too bad I never use the damn thing) so I'm going to be exploring my options. Hopefully a not-Spotify app shows up in the store.

Yeah I haven't really messed with OneDrive/Groove that much yet. I just signed up for the free 30 days just so I could get on with it for now.

I was really looking forward to playing FH3, but so far I'm just kinda meh on it. Not sure what I really think about it overall right now. Felt a little too "Forza" at first but after unlocking some cars and playing around with it, its growing on me a bit. I think I might just be at capacity for racing games at this point. After playing a ton of racing games last gen and a few this gen, I'm not sure I'm actually thrilled to continue pursuing this genre as not a lot has changed...or maybe I was not actually in the mood for a racing game right now with all the more interesting titles out there, who knows.

I am pretty pissed off that apparently FH3 and all Windows 10 games aren't going to support SLI at this time if ever. Even Gears 4 isn't launching with SLI support from what I can tell. I guess I'm the idiot for thinking MS might actually get its act together and take PC gaming seriously for once so after Gears 4 I guess I'm done with the "play anywhere" bullshit. Its sad that this experiment has already failed. I'm having to sacrifice higher settings just to get FH3 running decent but even then this game seems a bit too demanding to be using only one of my cards, especially since I was wanting to run this in 2K widescreen on PC primarily. The game looks pretty darn good, but its not the PC experience I had hoped for. I will say the seamless transitions of playing on Xbox and PC are pretty solid as far as transferring progress and how all that works. So far I like Windows 10 and how it talks to my Xbox overall, but if this is any indication on how neutered the PC versions of these first party games are going to be, no thank you; I'll just use my X1 for exclusives and Steam for PC.

As for Destiny news, oh man, this is a whopper of a scoop:

http://kotaku.com/sources-destiny-2-coming-to-pc-aims-to-feel-like-a-to-17871534...

I'm all for making Destiny what it should be now that we've left behind peasant gen, but I don't know how I'd feel about abandoning everything we've seen and done so far. I had always hoped the game would just get expanded upon for years to come but if we had to leave behind Destiny one, our characters, and everything we've done over the past couple years...not sure that's in keeping with what we were promised with Destiny and not something I'd be happy about. A PC version would definitely be fucking awesome, but I worry Bungie would be getting into unknown territory there, at least in terms of how PC players would totally cheat/break the game. Everything else sounds badass though.

Fuck me. I get the idea behind making a whole new Destiny on PC too but, to leave characters behind would be pretty shitty.

I don't know man. That bothers me a lot.

I don't have much faith in SLI for the future. Graphic Card manufacturers need to come up with a better solution that'll work off a single expansion port. Forcing developers to support unique configurations like that just won't work.

We hit the same problem when dual core CPU's came out. Most games would only function on one core at 32 bits. So adopting it early only helped you play games like Crysis with higher quality. Until it became a standard anyhow.

The problem SLI is going to face is that you're running 2 cards together though 2 PCI Express ports. So it's not quite the same as CPU's on the whole moving forward to 2 or 4 CPU's on a single die. It's not a single package nor does it seem to get extensive support from the GPU manufacturers.

At the end of the day they stand to make more money putting their devs to work on DLC rather than SLI optimization.

Which is a shame cause I like the idea. Even frugal PC gamers could take advantage of that. Slap 2 GTX 780's together and you have a machine that'll dunk on a PS4 Pro spec wise. But the effort that'd go into making games support that configuration seems like a waste of time. At least considering one of the main purposes for making big fancy looking games is to get a cash return.

I was hoping the move to 4k gaming would facilitate a push for SLI support. But the majority of gamers just don't care about 4k. Not enough to make it a worthy venture.

I kinda wager we'll see the same thing with VR too. At least until you can get a headset for $300 that does 4k 120fps, weighs 0.8 pounds, and runs completely wireless.

That point doesn't really hold up when pretty much all developers support SLI on PC though. Occasionally a game will come out that has poor SLI support at launch, and even rarer that a game doesn't support it at all. I've had zero issues myself playing any game on PC in SLI until now. SLI isn't a new trend. Hell, even the 21:9 widescreen monitors, which I would have to imagine are used by an even smaller subset of PC gamers are generally supported in most PC games these days as again, I haven't really had any problems playing any games from the last year or two with mine and MS seems to at least support that resolution even in FH3. When people are already hesitant to upgrade to Win10 and buy games directly from the MS store because of disasters like Windows Live from a few years ago it doesn't seem smart to already start alienating players who one would say are the most enthusiastic about PC gaming from your games and platform; one that is already NOT Steam, closed off, and doesn't seem to support modding or many of the things PC gamers are used to. If it were the case that a game or two were being launched here and there on the MS Store without SLI support I might understand, but so far I don't know that ANY games support SLI which is a bit worrying. Why would I ever buy something like say Rise of the Tomb Raider from the Windows Store when that version doesn't support SLI when I could just get a Steam version that does because the developer DOES support SLI themselves, the only one keeping this from being a problem in this particular case being MS.

And Bungie have really outdone themselves with this one. This is just insanely complex and absurd.
