The XBox One Thread Pt3 - discuss!

It seems they’ve completely abandoned the TV aspect of the Xbox now, I can no longer ask for a specific channel, it just just says “Watch HDMI” now. I can’t see why they have to remove that. It wasn’t something I used a lot but it was handy

I ditched Kinect for Alexa+Harmony hub ages ago. It's far more versatile

I’m still using it for “Xbox Pause” “Xbox Play” which it still does better and quicker than having to add Alexa to it.

Jesus Fallout 4 seems a bit overwhelming when you’ve only just come back to gaming after 5 years.

It's also pretty rubbish. Part Fallout 3 instead

Playing it through gamepass so if it’s not that good I might bin it off then, sank many hours into 3 before I stopped gaming .

Is The Witcher any good as that’s another I was looking at trying.

Yes, best game in ages. Witcher 3 does start off with tutorial which helps new players

Left trigger is playing up on my elite controller... Can hear something rattling inside and think it's occasionally getting jammed

Anyone know a good guide to taking apart so I can try see what the issue is?

Just a quick search on YouTube and this is the longest one, so probably is the most in depth

Really enjoying The Witcher so far, only 4 hours in but done a few side quests, bit of exploring and getting to grips with the combat.

Keep an eye out for witcher amour quests, well worth doing for top tier swords and armour (also upgradeable if you find better schematics)

Stupid question - does anyone know if NBA2K20 was only on EA Access as a trial/demo ?

That's weird.

I am sure my son said he installed it via EA Access 2 days ago ( and when it started it talks about setting up an account on EA servers ) but it now asks for the game disk when he tries to play it.

Maybe it was on Games Pass and he is just getting confused.
