Haven't crashed for me once. But I've read that the issue came with the last 15GB update. I haven't touched the game after that, so probably that's why it probably never happened to me.

It was crashing like crazy for me too. UNTIL I realized that for some reason the "Xbox One" version was instralled.

You need to check in your "game list" if you have the logo X|S displayed on the COD game. If not you installed the wrong one.

I've installed proper Series X version right from the start. I've heard that there are issues that it installs Xbox One version by default because of Activision being greedy and not offering Smart Delivery. But thank god I've cancelled it because I didn't want to install everything which it does right after buying the game.

Well, guess I'm waiting for that patch before I pick the game up then. Still have to finish Doom, Doom eternal, Forza 7 and Cyberpunk. I got time.

Speaking of Doom Eternal, anyone pick up the Old Gods DLC? How was it? Thinking about getting the season pass even before I start the campaign.

I've beaten it. It's really hard. Prepare for some real challenge. It is way harder than the base game and a true test of skill.

The difficulty doesn't really concern me. I got all of the achievements on Doom and Doom 2 on console. Up to and including punching out a cyberdemon, I got it.

I want to know if it's good. Thinking about holding out until part 2 comes out as well as the Series X enhancement patch.

Also been consistently smashing that 1k posts per month target set earlier in the year.



We are excited and proud to announce that now, in addition to playing MechWarrior 5 Mercenaries on PC, it will also be available on the XBox Series X|S and XBox One. This will be the first MechWarrior title on a console since 2004's MechAssault 2, and in our opinion, the first true MechWarrior experience ever on a console.

Spring 2021.

This is cool but honestly, I kind of wish Microsoft would stop licensing out FASA IP (IIRC Jordan Weisman has exclusive licensing to Shadowrun and Crimson Skies, while Piranha has exclusive licensing to MechWarrior) and instead bring them under XGP.

Reason being, Microsoft firstly gets more control, they can guarantee Xbox release alongside PC, also licensing takes away any effort on Microsoft's part and just leaves it up to the developer to fund it, I would instead like to see Microsoft invest in the IP themselves (Piranha and Jordan can keep exclusive rights but I just want Xbox to get more involved in funding).

Oh wow, I loved Mechassault 2 on the original Xbox, one of my favourites! Is this MechWarrior 5 out already on PC? Is it any good?

Released December 10th, 2019 as an Epic Game Store exclusive, later released on Windows 10 (Game Pass PC) as of May 2020 and was meant to release on Steam on December 10th, 2020 but has been delayed to Spring 2021.

Has a 74 Meta, not a bad effort from a small studio with no support from Xbox, I think they could do better if Xbox actually got involved in the funding and did it through XGP instead.



Man, BattleTech IP make my head hurt.

Read an article where WindowsCentral speculates it might be a legal problem as to why Microsoft never publishes them, since Microsoft own the game rights but another company owns the story rights, another company owns the tabletop rights, etc. Basically it's a complete mess and why the story has stagnated for certain Battletech properties.

...Microsoft should just acquire all the rights. xD
