Thread US Securities and Exchange Commission just published a "notice of effectiveness" in regards to the Bethesda acquisition.
Remains one of the weirdest days of my gaming journalism years. I woke up and saw that my phone literally struggled with all the notifications. Wasn't sure wtf was happening and when I saw that Xbox x Bethesda image... what a HOLY SHIT moment.

Thread Tell Me Why |OT| Ain't nothin' but a heartache [Mark Spoilers]
Only a handful of games made me emotional and Tell me Why was one of them. This is an evolution from Life is Strange, every small and big aspect has been improved. Dontnod has the talent to make unique and super interesting characters and that’s no different from the Ronan twins. It gave me food for thought, some subjects are totally new for videogames and I can only praise Microsoft and especially Dontnod to give them attention in Tell me Why. Honestly, I knew I was going to give a 100% from the very first half-hour, this is one of the games I will remember from the Xbox One generation and easily became one of my favorite games of all time.

Thread MS: "90 million active Xbox Live Users (up from 64 last quarter); more than 10 million GamePass subs"
People who don't know what an active user is.(MAU) a user needs to be in an application or game for over 7 minutes before it counts. This is the same with every Microsoft MAU stat. (Microsoft Teams - Office AND Xbox Live)

Thread Gears 5 was Microsoft's GoW/Uncharted 4 and it was simply ignored
Yes, I totally believe that Gears 5 didn't get what it deserved from many critics. Just as Halo Wars 2 received too much praise, Gears 5 received way to low. I'm leaving it at that :) Already received a warning so I'm carefully placing my words.

Thread Gears 5 was Microsoft's GoW/Uncharted 4 and it was simply ignored
It was an incredible game, it STILL is an incredible game with lots of free online content. It is a Microsoft game, did you honestly expect the same praise as Sony games? :) Edit: wow, warning for this? Okay :')

Thread DatingEra - This isn't like one of your animes
Alright, I wish to hear some advice here because I'm dealing with something that is driving me utterly crazy. I met this girl 64 days ago and we have been seeing each other on a regular basis, chatting daily and when we are together 2/3 days a week we do everything that couples would do. I have a huge crush on her, totally in love and we talked about it frequently. She can't make up her mind because she doesn't know if she wants to start something with me or her ex-boyfriend. Where she had a on and off relationship with for the past three years. This isn't normal right? This is really making me depressed but I have so many strong feelings for her.. Keeping me on a fishing line for two months.. anyone had a similar experience?

Thread Polyphony Digital's transformation is remarkable
I highly disagree. It is a studio that hasnt evolved enough and is surpassed by Turn 10, Playground, and Codemasters. They used to be one of the best racing devs, now they lag behind the pack.

Thread Does anyone prefer the DualShock 4 to the Xbone Controller?
Without the doubt, Xbox One (Elite) controller is my favorite, not a Dualshock fan.. always pain in my hands afterwards. (Likely because I'm not used to it)

Thread THQ Nordic's Koch Media buys out Milestone Publishing (MXGP, RIDE)
I honestly wonder where all that money is coming from, it is insane how many studio's and franchises they bought in a very short time.

Sure, but I see the expensive emotes a lot too. (the dancing animations) 91 cents or €35 that people want to spend money is important too, no?

Thread Ninja hits 1,000,000 active subs on Mixer in less than a week
The Ninja Emoji or animations can only be bought by money, you earn "sparks" by watching streamers not embers. It is honestly insane how many people are buying it, Ninja calls them out every once in a while I guess that's why so many people do it.

More importantly, I constantly see users spending Embers on the chat. Even the most expensive one (€35)

Nintendo doesn't need new studios, they have more than enough great first party content.

Thread MSPowerUser: Crackdown 3's multiplayer is already dead.
I'm sorry but this has nothing to do with the name if you would take the time to actually check my reviews for Xbox exclusives than you would know this is totally not the case. Windows Central, Xbox Tavern are all biased if you go with those thoughts

Thread Mike Ybarra, Corporate VP of Xbox, says critics of an Anthem area are “whining” and it is “embarrassing to review with such a lack of knowledge”
I go away for three days and I come back and see the internet explode for something ridicules. I 100% agree with Mike that a reviewer should at least have some knowledge about the game before reviewing it. That's the entire point, the reviewer didn't even know how to do a combo...

Thread Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus |OT| Amerika ist wieder großartig
Just wrote my review, pretty late to publish it but I had my hands full with other games too. Anyway, . In short pros: Story and characters, replay value and set-pieces. Cons: Blurry visuals on Xbox One (haven't tested the Xbox One X), head bobbing and simply terrible hit detection feedback. Great game though, Machine Games is an excellent developer. Looking forward for whatever they bring next.

Thread Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus |OT| Amerika ist wieder großartig
So I was covering the Belgian Wolfenstein release party and one thing I wasn't aware of is that many players play and buy Wolfenstein 2 for the Nazi-elements. The majority knew before even playing the game that it would have Nazi-jokes. This took me by surprise to be honest, I never would have guessed that people actually buy a game just for that. Anyway, if this is allowed here is a about the Belgian release party. I am almost done with the game and so far I'm satisfied but I liked the previous two more. Playing on Xbox One, I have experienced many visual bugs with shadows, frame rate drops and the lean mechanic is simply terrible. Not the biggest fan for the environments too, I miss some extra creative work. That sounds negative though, overall I think Wolfenstein is a very decent shooter, it might even be the best single player shooter for 2017.

Thread Kotaku: Microsoft's Inside Xbox Show Isn't Working
I have been to the German one, it is not a fake ass crowd. Microsoft just spends a lot of genuine effort in making it an awesome night with activities and lots of free drinks, so the crowd is pretty much excited by everything. ?

More positive than I thought, it won't be Microsoft's best game but I'm really happy that they didn't drop this game despite difficult development.

Thread Mutant Year Zero: The Road to Eden |OT| DuX-Com
Loved it, quite a few people on my friendlist are playing it too (likely because of Xbox game pass) I do wished that Dux, Bormin and Selma had more backstory or depth. Anyway, I gave it a 90/100 Really worth checking the game out!

Thread The Evil Within 2 |OT| A Re-Union with STEM
Anyone here that misses the dark filter from the previous Evil Within? I didn't really miss it but I can imagine that some gamers loved that dark filter. The game really shines in the audio department though, one of the strongest points. If interested here is.

Thread Xbox One X |OT| The Scorpio King
From the information I received from shops I have an estimate how much the Xbox One X sold (WITHOUT one of the biggest stores, BOL.com) in Belgium Game Mania had 2 consoles for each store, MediaMarkt 30 consoles for each store, FNAC 3 consoles for each store, Dreamland 3 consoles for each store, Bart Smit 2 consoles for each store. Everything together around 3500 consoles are sold in these stores, not bad for Belgium if you ask me. (Each shop is sold out)

Thread Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown Review Thread
Wrote the same in my review, for first timers it is a really hard game. People familiar with Ace Combat won't have any issues at all but I can imagine that many gamers will curse with the learning curve and absent of any explanation.
