  1. The Microsoft Store has listed unannounced Namco classic games collections Namco Museum Archives Vol. 1 and Namco Museum Archives Vol. 2. Both are planned for release on June 17. The collections seem to be a western version of Namcot Collection, the Switch-only collection due out on June 18 in Japan. Most the initial 11 Namcot Collection titles can be obtained through purchasing each collection (excluding Wagyan Land, Star Luster, Family Jockey, and Yokai Dochuki), including the newly announced 8-bit demastered Pac-Man Championship Edition. All of the games are NES/Famicom versions Not Arcade. Since the announcements were leaked via the Microsoft Store, Xbox One is currently the only confirmed platform. But it is safe to assume the collections will also release on PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC. Namco Museum Archives Vol. 1 - xbox store link Includes 11 titles! In addition to 10 classic Namco titles, some of which were never localized and released in the west, a newly created 8-bit demastered version of Pac-Man Championship Edition makes its world premiere as a bonus! Titles included Dig Dug Dragon Buster Dragon Spirit: The New Legend Galaxian Mappy Pac-Man Pac-Man Championship Edition (8-bit demastered version) Splatterhouse: Wanpaku Graffiti Sky Kid The Tower of Druaga Xevious Equipped with convenient modern functions! Convenient features such as the “save function” that allows you to interrupt the game at any time and the “replay function” that allows you to start over at the last minute. Namco Museum Archives Vol. 2 - xbox store link Includes 11 titles! In addition to 10 classic Namco titles, some of which were never localized and released in the west, an 8-bit consolized version of Gaplus is included as a bonus! Titles included: Battle City Dig Dug II Dragon Buster II Galaga Gaplus (8-bit consolized version) Legacy of the Wizard Mappy-Land Mendel Palace Pac-Land Rolling Thunder Super Xevious No prices on the store entries yet but there are some videos if you want to check out the MS store links above.
  2. Microsoft's Reward scheme. It's alright. In about 15 months I've made just over £240 from it and I've not been doing it religiously. It's not the gravy train it once was, but it's still a simple way to get Xbox credit in return for a good use of your time while sitting on the toilet, a tenner a month or so is easy enough to attain. Interested? Of course you are! Go here https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/rewards sign up using the MS login you use for your Xbox, follow the instructions. Click on everything available for points under https://account.microsoft.com/rewards/ and also do the desktop PC Bing searches to finish off - for those it's easiest to search for a letter under image search, and middle click on 30 different options. You can do it on mobile in a browser desktop mode, for that just put in a search term 30 characters long and delete a letter, search, delete a letter and so on until you've done the searches. Once you're earned 500 points (takes a day or two, there are all sorts of welcome offers to hoover up) you'll be at Level 2 and be able to earn direct from mobile searches as well (again, via Bing - app or set it to default search on your browser), and that's your lot. Daily, you get 3 points per mobile search (up to 60) and 3 points per desktop search (up to 90), along with three "daily sets" of things to click on. They're usually 10 points each, but there will be a couple of occasions per week where it's a quiz on one of them for 30 points or similar. Do those every day, and you can earn extra points for "streaks" where every few days you'll get a bonus for your streak, which is 15 points per day no matter what really: Streak 1, Day 3 (3 days) = 45 pts Streak 2, Day 8 (5 days) = 75 pts Streak 3, Day 13 (5 days) = 75 pts Streak 4, Day 20 (7 days) = 105 pts Streak 5, Day 27 (7 days) = 105 pts Streak 6, Day 35 (7 days) = 105 pts Streak 7, Day 44 (10 days) = 150 pts There's often additional stuff to click on daily and you can also pick up a number of points a day by using the Xbox Rewards app on the Xbox One, but that's tended to be 15 points per day so is a bit crap. You can get a couple of thousand for buying particular games or hardware, but sales generally beat doing that. You also get some points back for any game you buy from the MS store regardless. The occasional email gets sent with links for additional points, usually only 50 and they're only once few weeks at most. All in all, you can get an absolute minimum of 180 points per day just from a couple of minutes searching and clicking, with some extras on top. To what end? Rewards! Live Gold subs, Game Pass subs, Xbox Credit, Microsoft Credit, and things from other vendors that are really poor value. You can easily fund a month of Game Pass every month (6800 points, 17000 for 3 months), I usually save points for credit, of which Xbox and MS Credit are identical so pick whatever makes sense (currently they're 5850 or 4410 points for a fiver, respectively - the latter is on a 30% off deal 'til the 15th of October). As of the other month, any credit gets deposited directly into the redeeming account and you've got 3 months to spend it so you can build up 30 quid in your account if you like but then you have to spend some, but it gives plenty of time to hang on and see what comes up in the various sales. Gold and Game Pass are still supplied as codes to use anywhere. Anyway, the sums above only add up to a fiver of credit a month at best though, but you can near double it up. You're allowed 5 accounts per household, and if you set up a pair of accounts as a family you can transfer 5000 points per month between them. The only thing I'd recommend is using a separate phone number to verify each if you're asked, and don't ever set up a kids account as it's a right pain in the arse with the age restrictions. If you have two pairs of accounts, you can use the other pair to gift games to yourself if you go for credit (a code for the game gets emailed). If you want to rapidly gain points it's a bit finicky but you can use a VPN and pretend you're in the US, where they generate points almost twice as fast as we can. Switch back to UK, deposit points to the paired account, switch back. Might get your account banned doing that, but it'll only be the rewards part of it so there's little to lose. Here are my accounts, this is after exactly the first two weeks in September which is when the Streaks were added to the UK side of it. I use the second account to feed 5000 points to the first every month, and I'll probably use some of the slack to buy Gamepass subs. Not sure why the second account has earned so few by this point in comparison. Same sort of thing here with another couple of accounts, but the second account is gaining points from the US side of it and you can see the difference - almost a couple of thousand points more in 14 days. Lost that streak the day after, bloody timezones did for me. Again, second account feeds 5k points per month to the first but getting it to work was a bit of a pain given the functionality wasn't available on the US side so lots of region switching in the MS account was needed as well. Think it just works now, they got the transfer functionality added the other week. There you go then, that's it. I can appreciate a lot of people can't be arsed as it does take a bit of effort to really go for it plus Bing is awful and so is the Bing app, so there's that. edit: 2018/2019 Hot Deals, tend to run from the 16th of the month for a month, or thereabouts. 2018/07: MS Credit (20% off) 2018/08: Xbox Credit (20% off) 2018/09: MS Credit (30% off) 2018/10: Gamepass (25% off) 2018/11: MS Credit (30% off) 2018/12: XBL Gold (20% off) 2019/01: Skype (25% off) 2019/02: MS Credit (20% off) 2019/03: Gamepass (25% off) 2019/04: XBL Gold (25% off) 2019/05: MS Credit (20% off) 2019/06: Xbox Credit (20% off) 2019/07: XBL Gold (25% off) 2019/08: MS Credit (20% off) 2019/09: Skype (25% off)
  3. Forget next-gen, this has to be the trailer of the year. Oh, and it's a really good game too, if the first reviews are any indication. https://www.destructoid.com/review-huntdown-590605.phtml

  5. Looks metal af, especially as the world is called Cvstodia, and using Vs as Us is fvcking cvlt . No doubt I'll buy it, play it for an hour before I realise I'm fucking awful at it and never play it again but shit, look at it.
  6. I spent the weekend playing the backside out of the rather wonderful space building sandbox game Astroneer (Check it out free on PC and XBox Gamepass or on PS4). This was so much fun that I fancied something more meaty and much more nerdy. So I started searching and came up with Space Engineers. It seems to be basically Astroneer with a far more realistic and complex style. So far all I've done is drop in my pod onto an earthlike planet, mine some stone and convert it into materials. I need to watch a beginners guide stat but already I can feel the same urge to dive in that consumed me this weekend with Astroneer Also online so you can play with chums

  12. Konami’s classic run-and-gun franchise Contra seems to be back. And no, it's not a pachinko machine. On Tuesday, Konami revealed Contra Rogue Corps, a new over-the-top entry in the series. Two years after the Alien Wars had ended, a mysterious area called the Damned City arose from the grounds where the final battles took place. Ruthless Fiends roamed the area, bringing a world full of madness. In the midst of chaos, 5 scoundrels emerge...they are the Rogue Corps. They do not look anything like heroes of justice, but have they come to save humanity, or maybe they are looking to hit the jackpot by searching the Damned City for treasures...either way, the fate of the world is in their hands. Contra Rogue Corps trades the traditional side-scrolling perspective for a top-down isometric view of the action, like previously done in Super C and Contra 3: The Alien Wars. Players will shoot up Damned City, both as classic Contra characters like Kaiser, a mutated bug and ... a panda bear? Official E3 2019 trailer: Contra Rogue Corps will feature single-player and multiplayer gameplay when it launches on September 26.

  14. Missed Ubi's conference yesterday, but caught up with this today. It looks like it has a lot of potential, but then again, Ubisoft. I don't think I've played a decent snowboarding game since Amped on the OG Xbox. (I don't even know if there have been any apart from Amped 2). Side note: Is it just me or is that logo utterly awful?

  16. Switch, Playstation 4, Xbox One, Steam - 24/10/2017 ABOUT: A powerful ancient evil has arisen, and the war to save humanity has begun! The Mummy Demastered throws you into a 16-bit-inspired battle against the undead in a 2D, nonlinear, action-packed adventure. As an elite agent in the monster-hunting Prodigium organization, you must use a variety of weapons, upgrades, and mysterious artifacts to defend mankind against the supernatural hordes of Princess Ahmanet. Your Prodigium unit is already on the scene, but HQ lost contact with them hours ago. Only by exploring tombs, forests, abandoned tunnels, and the cursed streets of London will you discover the fate of your allies. But beware – Ahmanet commands legions of undead, insects, plague-ridden vermin, and worse! If you’re not careful, you’ll be the next soul in her army. KEY FEATURES: • Stunning retro-inspired graphics and atmospheric chiptune soundtrack • Shoot-’em-up action meets exploration-based adventuring • Fight for survival against swarms of horrifying enemies and bosses • Obliterate monsters with an arsenal of weapons including grenades, a flamethrower and more • Uncover and collect 50 hidden relics Reviews Playstation Universe - 8.5/10 "A thunderous Metroidvania effort that sublimely marries the timeless design of yesteryear with some of the best decisions of modern game design, The Mummy Demastered is not only a great title but also one of the genuinely best surprises of the year." Nintendo Life - 9/10 "They say don't judge a book by its cover, and you shouldn't judge this game based on its movie tie-in; with The Mummy Demastered, WayForward may have reached its apex. It deserves to stand on its own as one of the best recent examples of not only a pixel art aesthetic, but as an excellent combination of run 'n gunning, platforming and exploration. The game benefits from paying homage to multiple 16-bit ancestors rather than strictly sticking to its celluloid source material; The Mummy Demastered is a polished, accomplished and satisfying adventure that will entertain more than just Metroidvania fans." Destructoid - 7.5/10 "This game doesn't do anything meaningfully new or original for metroidvania fans, but everything here is solid and WayForward got the fundamentals right... in a licensed Mummy adaptation, of all things." Metro - 7/10 "It’s more an unofficial Castlevania game than a movie tie-in, but if you can handle the high difficultly level this is an effective substitute for the real thing."

  21. Tera the old actiony MMO from the PC has launched on consoles. It's not terrible from what I remember on the PC but it's very MMO. I thought it'd start a thread in case anyone is thinking of giving it a try. If you have Twitch Prime (Free with Amazon Prime) you get a free code for a twitch founders pack which will save you about 25 quid. Thinking about it. It'll probably play better on a controller that it did on mouse/kb.
