    [–] In terms of excitement, how would you rank the "big" AAA upcoming switch games of 2019? The7ruth 4 points ago in NintendoSwitch

    For me the National Dex issue is just another in a long line of problems I've had with Pokemon that hasn't changed.

    Game looks terribly outdated for being the first mainline Pokemon game on console. Animations are poorly done. The overworld doesn't look great.

    The new gimmick is very uninspired and they removed megas which were something I enjoyed. I'm tired of Game Freak adding in interesting mechanics only to abandon them by the next game.

    The end game still seems empty besides trading and battling other players. Both of these will suffer from the loss of National Dex too.

    I don't really care for many of the new Pokemon revealed yet. I don't think they need to add new Pokemon every single generation though I understand why they do.

    This could have been a much better game than what we are getting. I don't believe in rewarding mediocrity, especially when these games will be priced at $60. This will only be another set of the games I skip since I felt the same way as Sun/Moon, Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire and Ultra Sun/Moon.

    The Pokemon games definitely don't need to be radically different like Breath of the Wild was but they can't continue to be such lazily created games if they want me to care.

    [–] Can any kind gamers help me find new games to play? The E3 sale ends today and I want to take advantage if I can! The7ruth 1 points ago in xboxone

    As far as we know, this $1 promotion will end and you won't be able to convert 1:1 anymore. They have already posted what the conversion rates will be. Gold will convert 3:1 so a year of Gold gets you 4 months of Ultimate. Gamepass will convert 3:2 so a year will get you 8 months.

    I doubt they would bother posting the conversion rates if the $1 deal lasted forever.

    Yes. Updates have generally been for creation club items.

    Not to mention that OP hasn't provided a source. Are the mods not very active is this sub?

    If I could turn pets, costumes, and mounts I didn't want into gems then I would agree.

    [–] Game Pass Ultimate The7ruth 1 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago) in xboxone

    Live is supposed to share through gamesharing as well. That's one of the two only official points by Microsoft about it. Not sure why your Live isn't sharing but it should. If you've set up gamesharing correctly then your Live will share. There are some restrictions such as the person being shared to can't download Games with Gold, doesn't get access to deals, and can't participate in the free game weekends they do but playing online shares.

    Official source: https://support.xbox.com/en-US/games/game-setup/my-home-xbox

    What can be shared

    Share your Xbox Live Gold subscription with anyone else who signs in to your console.

    Share games and downloadable content purchased from Microsoft Store with anyone else who signs in on your console. You can even share games downloaded as part of a subscription.

    The "your console" references with the Gold sharing is whichever console you designate as Home. If you are gamesharing then you are sharing your Live as well.

    [–] Microsoft's New PC Game Pass is a Mess The7ruth 1 points ago in Games

    Games that aren't Play Anywhere won't be available on PC if you have the Xbox Gamepass. Both PC Gamepass and Xbox Gamepass may offer the same game but that doesn't mean you get it on both platforms through one of the passes.

    Let's take Metro Exodus for example. Both Xbox and PC Gamepass offer it. I don't get a PC copy of I only have Xbox Gamepass though because Metro Exodus isn't Play Anywhere. Same goes the other way, don't get an Xbox version with the PC pass. On another note, saves don't transfer from PC to Xbox and vice-versa since Metro isn't Play Anywhere.

    It honestly sounds like OP got confused and bought an Xbox Gamepass instead of the PC Gamepass. So now when he tries to download games on his PC that are offered through Gamepass and aren't Play Anywhere, he is being denied. User error that I can sort of see where he is coming from but I also think Microsoft is being very clear about the different offerings.

    Article from January 2018. Has a quote from Xbox head of marketing saying that it's an intentional part of Gamepass time get the Play Anywhere titles for PC as well.

    [–] Game Pass Ultimate The7ruth 1 points ago in xboxone

    Normal Live shares perfectly fine as well. What makes you think Live doesn't share?

    [–] Game Pass Ultimate The7ruth 1 points ago in xboxone

    They do. You probably shouldn't answer questions you don't know the answer to.

    [–] Question about the new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate The7ruth 1 points ago in xboxone

    It's not just Gold expiration that matters here. Gamepass time is also factored in. You get a 1:1 monthly conversion of Gamepass and Gold. After adding those two together plus the bonus month of signing up is how long you get Ultimate for.

    [–] Question about the new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate The7ruth 2 points ago in xboxone

    Your example is off. Both subscriptions are converted. If OP had Live until 12/21 and Gamepass until 10/19 then their Ultimate would expire in 11/22. 19 months of Live plus 5 months of Gamepass plus the bonus month of signing up for Ultimate gives them 25 months. Not the 19 you say they would get.

    Also you said they would have Ultimate until December of 21 but have to start paying in January of 21. Probably a typo on your end as they wouldn't need to pay from January to December of 21.

    [–] Trying to get my head around this £1 game pass ultimate deal. The7ruth 1 points ago in xboxone

    So you've actually gotten wrong information OP. The conversion makes both your subscriptions Ultimate then adds them together. You currently have 10 months of Gamepass stored and 17 of Gold. The conversion will get you 28 months of Ultimate (add an extra month for the Ultimate purchase). 36 is the max conversion so a year purchase would only net you 8 months. Might be worth it to you if you want.

    Edit: math

    It combines both times before converting. It isn't taking the subscription furthest out. OP currently has 10 months of Gamepass and 17 months of Gold. So after conversion OP will have 28 months of Ultimate (add in the extra month for the Ultimate purchase).

    Edit: math

    [–] Microsoft's New PC Game Pass is a Mess The7ruth 6 points ago in Games

    It wasn't unintentional. When Xbox Gamepass first launched Microsoft said that it was intended that you could download the Play Anywhere games on your PC as well.

    [–] Project xCloud demo of Halo 5 nearly indistinguishable from local play The7ruth 4 points ago in xboxone

    They post how much slower it is. 4ms slower. That's basically imperceptible to the human brain.

    Latency directly on your Xbox for Halo 5 is 63 milliseconds. Streaming is 67. That's nothing.

    You stream from your Xbox to whatever device you use instead of using an Xbox that Microsoft owns.
