Wait wait wait....

Your avatar's gender matters? They don't just make one avatar with if/then rules? I don't XBOX, or at least I haven't since the origal XBOX, but I was messing with the MS Store this morning and holy shit they make it weird to do nearly anything....including purchase something. That said, this avatar costume thing has me perplexed. Admittedly that isn't hard to accomplish but...

Are you not allowed to change your avatar's gender? Don't you keep a collection of avatar costume pieces? So if today I feel like my avatar looking like Billy Bob and tomorrow I want it to look like Billie Jean...I can't do that or if I do I have to go re-purchase/download all (or just the one I want) the costumes I already have so they are gender appropriate? I ask because MS won't let me download 2 of those costumes because "my avatar is the wrong gender". I think it's a really bad idea to make avatars defined in any way by gender but that isn't the point. The point is that I am used to keeping an avatar collection with most apps and services and I just pick the one I feel like going with that day, week, month..whatever. So if I am reading everything correctly MS has theirs setup so if I choose an avatar with a different gender than my current avatar I have to go search out and download a whole new "version" of whatever avatar costume it is that I might already have but apparently need to get MS's approval before I commit to my virtual gender swap.

So..since it's been so long since I used an XBOX or XBOX live...and I have never used Live on an actual XBOX...what part of all of this am I missing because I am a little surprised that MS would even bother wading into the gender discussion. I mean, they aren't going to get reliable data from it so I don't see the upside. What am I missing? I don't recall ever setting up an avatar before but it's obvious I did looking at my current one...but I don't remember anything about gender so perhaps I did it before the current avatar system? I don't know. Just seems weird to me in 2016 to have an entertainment service essentially force you to declare your gender identity online to them or at the very least make it so you are making an avatar based on gender and whatever MS considers "normal".

edit: I know I am way overthinking this and don't confuse this as a SJW getting ready to charge into battle. I hardly use XBOX anything for anything so my opinion is always going to be that the actual users are the ones that need to get in MS's ear if they have an issue...not people like me that hardly use it. I am just asking here because I am curious and I figure someone here probably knows.

I own two but not Hearthfire. Does anyone own it? After several playthroughs at close to 500 hours invested in Skyrim I don't think I've got another playthrough left in me.

A little girl walked up to me to sell flowers and told a sad story of being abandoned by her parents. I offered to adopt her but I've not bought a home yet, she walked away disappointed. I suppose that's the Hearthfire dlc integrated into the game.

Currently playing as thief/sneak/lockpick/pickpocket.

News Comments > Dead Rising 4 Trailer

Dead Rising fan here but not so much for its new direction. Casual gaming for the masses, removing its uniqueness. Zombie smashing without purpose or consequence.

-Rumors of health regeneration.
-Timer removed from single player campaign. Confirmed.
-4 player co-op with timed missions.
-Escort missions removed, also were removed in DR3.
-No work bench, removed. Acquire blueprints and combine weapons on the fly.
-New voice actor for Frank West.

Challenge made, challenge not accepted. Sad

If not for the game title I would not recognize it at all as part of the RE series. It seems like a really drastic change. For the better or for the worse?

Let me get this straight.

I can make maps on my PC for a game I can't play?

WTF?

Yes, you can play it from what I've read. Multiplayer, up to 16 players, no dedicated servers though, you host. No full Halo game/story. It's all free.

Microsoft discontinued the Halo Russia online version recently, that's news too.

Debating if I should play OTR again. It was fun, but holy hell was it difficult.


I didn't find the midget clown driving the ice cream truck that difficult but whatever. You didn't honk his nose by accident, did you?

Never honk a psycho clowns nose, ever!


As for Dead Rising the original, that game is twice as difficult as DR2/DR2:OTR. Be prepared for pain.

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood - Developed for PC Steam.

As all recent PC retail games released by Bethesda come with mandatory online Steam activation, this game will be no different. Once activated the physical disc copy becomes absolutely worthless and only serves as a backup copy. The best option is the PS4/X1 console versions, you can share them with friends/family, trade them with friends/family or resell the game. The choice is yours to make.

Example.

Steam is the shithole of PC gaming and Hatred is just the latest ripe turd to float to the top, just swirling about in slow circles inside the Steam DRM turd bowl. Valve was correct in banning this turd but GabeN smelled the cash and with his fat greasy cheeseburger fingers lifted this sad discarded turd and polished it to a bright happy shine.

Hatred, original trailer.

Demand alternatives or suffer. You should not be forced to use Steam in order to game on the PC. You should not be threatened to have your entire game library locked over a payment dispute or be forced to agree to any changes to the Steam TOS/SSA.

The bottom line, though, is that Valve said change was on the way eons ago, and it still hasn't materialized. They pop their heads up to penalize people for pushing back against a broken system and then dive back underneath their cone of silence without offering a solution. Worse, they do all of this in Valve Time when time is of the essence for everybody else. Gamers and developers alike are tired and frustrated. This isn't working. Can we try something else already?

It sounds like he is trapped and he is, as most of you are.

Developed for PC Steam.

Steam was once optional, not anymore.

Disappointed that there is no option to buy it in a box on a disc.

I just bought a few old PC games, it's nice to have them in my hands.

Holy shit, I didn't even know this until just now (I've literally never even been to G2A before), but they're not even a store! G2A is a marketplace that hosts transactions between buyers and sellers. Like eBay for back-alley video game deals! Random dudes from god knows where are selling you that key or promising a Steam GIFT! Lmao...

Ubisoft is not responsible for this. You reap what you sow, sorry.

WTF?!? Really? I thought it was a store, never been there myself. I'm laughing over here. Clown

I usually stick with GamersGate.com and GOG.com. HumbleBundle also looks pretty good, many games are sold DRM free with a optional Steam activation key.

The master server lists are dead since the demise of Gamespy. These tools will direct connect you to other gamers, VPN over internet. I've used both before and found no security issues.

If no one is playing then it is up to you to create a lobby and host if I recall and hope others will join.

There are no other options to my knowledge, it's these tools or nothing.
