Wondering if anyone can help here...

When I go to install a game from either MS site or Game Pass app I get presented with 3 consoles. I only own one console.
I assume these are past consoles that I've sold or my mates that I used to sign in on, but I have deleted these from my devices on the MS site

How can I get rid of these?!

If they are doing raytracing it should be in the game at launch, not patched in later

Blimey! The only reason I have left to get a new Series X on launch is because my day-one Scorpio struggles with almost all games that push the CPU (due to paste issues). The only next-gen game I’m desperate for is Cyberpunk & I believe the next-gen version of that isn’t due to early 2021?

Now might be tempted to go PS5 if the new Gran Turismo is a launch title?

On giant bomb, jeff was losing it about first Def Jam then saying consoles never have good launch games but xbox one had forza 5, Killer instinct and Dead rising 3 (according to some website I looked at this morning) thats some decent games at launch

While infinite looked a bit naff and it was good that they delayed it, there is no reason to get series X at launch unless you want to play current games and old games slightly better

People have replaced the paste on their 1X, might be alternative?

Got an beta code for Marvel avengers game as VM customer, can't even try it as enter your email address used for my square enix account and nothing happens.

From watching the previews, it looks like horrible loot grind fest inspired by destiny but ok ish brawler combat and some horrible screen blur

I listen to the ign uk podcast ( - I listen to this as I can't find anything else that does what it does. A UK based "geek" podcasts, that covers TV, Films, Games etc. My issue is, I just feel I am too old for the hosts (more so since the change) and don't always get them and their popular culture references / how they talk. I enjoy it and find it interesting, but if someone could find me near enough the exact same podcast but done by people who remember the 80s then please, let me know ) and it was quite amusing having read other previews and heard other comments how they where trying to be “nice” about the game and didn’t seem to want to cause offence by saying anything bad

It does sound an awful mess

sounds like these people want to keep on the good side of the publisher for review codes. Apparently square enix is getting YT **** influencers types to "promote" the game aka shill the **** out of it

Pity i bought Life is strange 2 and The Witcher GOTY back in May/June. I've not played either yet so could have saved those purchases until now

Wonder what the criteria was...

I had no intention of getting the new Xbox straight away and was going to wait until late next year however after a recent bad thunder storm our BT Hub and One S bit the dust. The issue seems power related as it turns off immediately after switching it on. I could pick a second hand one up or look into a repair but I think I may as well hang on and put the money into a new one.

I had hoped that in the mean time I could use the Game Pass Cloud app on my Chromebook but the right analog stick on my Elite controller won't respond to any movement in games. I've not tried a PS4 controller yet though.

First impressions of Wastelands 3 are very positive. The writing & voice acting is much better than the last two Fallout games & the turn-based combat is very good.

Another worthy GamePass addition...

I had a similar problem with my power brick after a storm. There's some kind of internal surge protection that doesn't reset unless its plugged directly in to a power socket and not an extension lead etc. Mine used to light up and then turn off when I tried to turn the console on. Plugging it straight into the wall socket reset it and it worked fine again.

I'm pretty sure the Xbox One manual says to plug it directly into the wall and not a surge protector.

The Xbox One S has a built-in power supply so no power brick. I could be pick up an internal one but I've read that for some people this didn't solve the issue.

Wasteland 3 didn't last much beyond the 1st encounter. I'll come back when (if?) its finished

I count Fallout 1 and 2 among the best games I have ever played. Ultimately I was left cold by Wasteland 2 on the PC - very much a game of 2 half. The first half, the one they sent time on and that was part of the early access, was very good - the second half ? well that felt knocked out in a couple of weeks

Also it was too easy - I equipped my team with a couple of Snipers and didn't struggle at all in any of the encounters

Wasteland 3 just felt "cheap" - I know I can't complain as its free on Game Pass, but it looked bad and felt bad

Character creation felt wrong - Don't let me customise all these features and then make me choose a portrait that has no resemblance of my character !

Even the character creation screen seemed "bugged" with the top most skill / quirk never coming back on screen once scrolled down

Then the game just looked bad. Old and dated.
It really didn't feel finished at all
