Yeah! It's a shame this is the last batch of BC games because they were so close to finish porting all the Sega exclusives that did not get re-released elsewhere.
Still, what a great initiative that was. It legit brought me into the Xbox ecosystem. I was a PS3 guy in the 7th gen and it pissed me so much to not be able to bring all my games to my PS4.
Wait, they said this was the last bc games they would do?

I was thinking of getting a cheap copy of MHGU for Switch because I’m in the mood for some hunting but then I remembered I’d have to also shell out more money for NSO… Paid online needs to go in this day and age…

I remember at launch the Switch pro controller was less than positve recived, does anyone remember the issues and if the moder revisions fixed them?
There doesn't seem to be a definitive confirmation on whether the issues have been fixed in the newer models. Your best bet if someone who has the newer models confirms that they don't have those issues anymore.

One major issue was the d-pad where it was registering wrong inputs e.g. when you press up on the d-pad, it may register as left/right.

I can confirm that the dpad is still finicky on one of the latest revisions. It was especially noticeable in Pacman 99. Other than that, the controller works pretty well.

If you need a good dpad, I'd go for an 8bitdo controller or one of those adapters that allow you to connect other types of controllers to the Switch.

Thanks, I went with a Dualsense but a friend of mine needs switch compat and yeah it seems the 8bitdo pro 2 or the adapter is the better way.

So I've just bought Ridge Racer 6 on Xbox and I've just noticed the insane amount of DLC for it that is hidden on the Xbox 360 Marketplace. I can't believe I'll have to claim every one of those 50+ items individually on that slow as molasse website. I don't know why MS is unable to properly update their whole store backend instead of just modernizing parts of it... :(

I expect you Radiohead fans already know but in case you were feeling a bit too cheerful Radiohead have a thingy on EGS/Mac and PS5. Enjoy.

Can’t tell if that’s a dig at Radiohead being gloomy or only being on EGS on PC but it works either way 😭

I picked up the physical JP Deathsmiles collection, one of my favorite shmups. :blobmorning2:

Thought about picking up Mario Party Super Stars for nostalgia, but found out it is only 5 boards, is that right? No unlocks or anything hidden? :confounded-face:

I suppose it fits here? Just had an email from Google saying my Stadia Controlelr/Chromecast Pro? bundle i got for £22 has been delayed so they refunded me the delivery cost, which is nice. They must have been more popular than i thought. I suspect many bought it for the controller alone tho.

I kinda did.

Hey, we're trying to cancel a PS subscription that auto renewed today because we forgot to turn it off and the cancel sub instructions page only shows how to turn off auto renew (done) and the support chat bot after all the steps directs us to live chat which after passing all the checks insta-blocks us before we say anything or give our ticket number from the bot, what's up with that? Any tips? Already messaged Ask PlayStation on twitter, no response yet.

Seriously? That can't be legal, right? I mean it states you have the right to cancel and get a refund with possibly substracted sum for how long you did use it within 14 days or something like that. Why isn't there a shitstorm if they're blocking people from using this consistently enough to have that opinion of them?
