Resident Evil 0 Remastered coming to Xbox One and 360

re0

After the success of the wonderful Resident Evil “REmake” surpassing 1 million downloads earlier this year, Capcom has announced that Resident Evil 0 will be getting the same treatment.

Resident Evil 0 was a GameCube exclusive that for the first time ever allows two characters to work together as well as removed the infamous item boxes from the game. Set before the Spencer Mansion incident, RE0 follows the adventure of Rebecca Chambers from S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team and Billy Coen, a former soldier turned fugitive at the time of the outbreak.

No date or price has been confirmed but expect Resident Evil 0 Remastered on Xbox One and Xbox 360 early 2016.

It was GameCube and Wii only. The only game to stay on Nintendo. It runs in the REmake engine but it has some fundamental changes which makes it unique. Capcom are pretty fucked, so this is part of their strategy to hold off being shut down.

Farming Simulator 15 Review

Farming_Simulator_15_Debut_SS_Logo

Back to the daily grind.

After a hard day’s work, videogames are a great way to wind down. I always thought that was about the escapism. At least, I did until I played Farming Simulator 15. It appears that somewhere, people intimately familiar with farming equipment want to live out the fantasy of owning a Lamborghini tractor. I call these people “actual farmers”. What are they getting out of simulating their own lives?

I might try to knock a video together but it won't be for a few days. The game is pretty funny as a concept. It's great to have played it as a curio more than anything.

The latest preview is fucking up my TV app again. Constantly have to restart it.

All we get in the latest preview is "improvements to the Miracast functionality in the Wireless Display app". Everything else is for the Xbox App preview within the Windows 10 preview, which I have neither the time nor the inclination to write about at the moment. http://majornelson.com/2015/05/21/new-x ... n-preview/ http://news.xbox.com/2015/05/xbox-one-n ... in-preview There will be "exciting things" for Xbox One shared with us at E3, though.

Not sure if it's the preview or something else, but iPlayer no longer works for me :( The app will load, but trying to play a video (any video) causes it to crash straight back to the dash. EDIT: It's a known issue with the Feb preview. There are a couple of threads about it in the preview forums, plus it's now listed as a known issue with the latest build.

Hi guys, my first post here a couple of folk already know me on Live and other sites as well as personally. I just got my One on Friday from Game's Black Friday midnight offer. I have tried to install and join the beta program but everytime I click to join the app freezes and eventually drops back to the home menu. Have uninstalled and tried again but it still happens. Anyone else had this or know of a workaround or fix? Thanks in advance. Steve
Mr C
A word of warning on the latest update guys. If you have an external hard drive attached it messes up your WiFi connection. The only work around at the moment is to disconnect your external hard drive or connect via cable
Born2beSlicker
Microsoft are big into their trending algorithms. I don't know why, I've never found a trending/recommendation system on any service ever that actually worked for me.
Lostcauz
Latest update includes the new store. Too many pointless lists still, I don't care what the top game is at the moment or the top selling. Should be new releases, coming soon, demos and maybe a added area for GWG/discounts. It does seem neater though.

I dunno about anyone else but the new streamlined friends stuff is a god send. Also not having to bellow "Xbox Record That!" Is great to. The smart glass app is now really useful as well.

It does seem the achievement server is a bit delayed in syncing with your console sometimes. It's not common but it does seem to happen.

Last time I played Minecraft the achievements weren't popping for me either. I think Obi and Slicker had the same problem.

I may have missed it in the notes but double tapping the guide button takes you to the snap center, press X and it records the last 30 seconds of gameplay, could easily be missed. :D
It's mentioned in the video, but not in the feature list on Xbox Wire / Major Nelson. I just tried it. You actually need to double-tap twice before hitting X. Once to bring up the Snap Centre, then a second double-tap to bring up the "+" menu. Would be better if you could press X on the first Snap menu, but it's still a handy addition for people who don't have Kinect.
OK, that's bollocks. Must have been my X1 playing up (it is a beta, after all). That is definitely what it *was* doing to me, and I tried Googling and found it was the same for others so thought that's how it was. But, I've just come back on and tried again, and now double-tapping brings up the "+" Snap Centre menu, with its option to press X to record. Pressing ^ on the D-pad then brings up the other menu (the one that came up first for me earlier tonight) with Friends, Messages, etc.

Preview time again
New Snap and Friends functions o Snap Updates – We’ve updated the Snap Center to include quick access to many of the things our fans wanted faster access to when playing a game – Friends, Messages, Game DVR, clock, and battery indicator – as well as making it easier to close and open new snap apps when playing a game. A double tap of the Xbox button on your controller will bring up a menu that allows you to open a new app in snap mode, close the current snapped app, or switch focus between your game and your running snapped app. Additionally, two apps have been optimized for Snap mode: Friends Snap App – Access your friends list without leaving the game. Quickly check your friends list to see who’s online right now and take actions like send message, invite or join. Messages Snap App – You’ll be able to open, read and respond to messages in Snap mode, and messages will now be displayed in a threaded conversation view. o Achievements App – Updated to enable sharing of achievements you’ve unlocked with captions, see a list of friends who have unlocked specific achievements, and an updated achievements Snap landing page that that shows Achievements on recently played games, when a user is not actively playing a game. o Friends section – The new Friends section enables you to see at a glance what’s going on with your friends. You can stay up-to-date with their current activities, the most popular games your friends are playing, and a Gamerscore leaderboard to see who has improved their Gamerscore over the last 30 days. The new Friends section has been available for select preview members for a few weeks and now we’re bringing it to everyone in the program, with plans to roll out this feature for all Xbox One owners with the October system update. o New SmartGlass features – You can now see a list of your top games in your profile. You can also see a list of your friend’s most popular games in the Friend’s section of SmartGlass. Improvements for TV and video o Media Player DLNA and MKV support – Members of the preview program who have also downloaded the latest version of the Media Player app will now have support for DLNA streaming. With this update, you will be able to easily access and play music, watch photo slideshows or movies stored on home media servers and devices that support the DLNA server protocols. Additionally, you will now be able to playback MKV files stored on a USB device or a device on your home network that supports DLNA streaming. o Live TV Trending – Within the next week, you will be able to see what Live TV is trending based on your country and OneGuide settings. A new tab will be available in OneGuide that displays the top 10 most watched TV shows, with the list filtered down to the shows that are currently available to you based on your OneGuide settings. You will be able to tune to a specific show by pressing the A button. The Live TV Trending list will be updated approximately every minute, so you can easily discover shows that are popular with other viewers. This feature will initially be made available to preview users in the U.S., Canada and the UK. o Xbox One Digital TV Tuner – Previously announced in August, this new accessory will be available for purchase in UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain on October 21. This USB-attached TV Tuner will enable users to watch TV on Xbox One, and pause Live TV for up to 30 minutes. There are a limited number of preview participants in this program due to hardware requirements needed for testing. Stream TV to SmartGlass – If you have an Xbox One Digital TV Tuner, you will be able to stream TV across your home network to your smartphone or tablet using the Xbox SmartGlass app. You can also pause, play, rewind and change channels, without interrupting gameplay. o Live TV MiniGuide – For markets where OneGuide is available, a new MiniGuide on the bottom of the screen will display details about the TV content that is currently playing. You can quickly change channels, see what’s on other channels, and tune to the previous channel or other recent channels. o OneGuide in 12 new countries – Live TV listings and schedules will be made available to preview members on Xbox One and SmartGlass for Belgium, Chile, Columbia, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland and Russia in the next few days. o Internet TV Apps – Apps with live TV channels can now include their TV listings within OneGuide. In addition, other Xbox TV features such as channel changing using speech and Miniguide will work with these apps. These features are enabled automatically the first time you sign into a supported app. The first app to support this feature in preview will be Zattoo, a TV provider available in several European markets. We will be sharing more details soon with members of the public preview. o Universal Remote Control in SmartGlass – If you are in one of those 12 countries, you will also be able use your mobile device to control your Xbox, TV, and/or Cable/Satellite box. Other user requested features o Updated Devices & Accessories page – To access the new page, go inside Settings, where you can Find, Assign, and Update Xbox One accessories. You can now more easily “assign” accessories to specific users, such as assigning a headset to a specific gamer. o Firmware updates – You can update the firmware for an individual device. And, you can also more easily find (or identify) a controller by making it vibrate. o Hide Games & Apps on your console – You can now hide items in the “Ready to install” list under My Games & Apps. This is a per-console setting and items will reappear in the list if they are installed again from the Xbox Store. To access the shortcut to temporarily show “hidden” items, press X while holding down both triggers and it will show all hidden items until you exit My Games & Apps. These new features and updates are rolling out to all Xbox One preview program members starting today. We are looking forward to bringing Xbox One to new markets this month, and can’t wait to hear from fans in those markets who get to pick up and play Xbox One for the first time. Plus, these new features will be available in all of our new markets for Xbox One owners who join the preview program.
First thing I did was hide all the demos from my download history. I may have missed it in the notes but double tapping the guide button takes you to the snap center, press X and it records the last 30 seconds of gameplay, could easily be missed. :D

It's happened to me and it's normally been down to the internal power surge protection, turn off at the wall and back on again.
sono
I assume this issue is a beta issue, I could be wrong but: My console has never had a problem, tonight I tried turning the console on using voice command (normal for me) and no response, I grab the controller and try turn it on, the controller light shows fine but still no response from the Xbox One. I walk over to the console and press the Xbox button; I hear a sound (the usual sound when you press the Xbox button) but again no light. I left it came back 10 mins later and pressed the button again, this time it worked. It's hard to explain what the problem might have been, at first I thought it may be installing something? maybe it was. Has anyone had this problem before? Edit: now my kinect doesn't work, odd. also I notice I was running this version last night:
Currently running - OS version released: xb_rel_1409.140822-2050.
Now my console is running: OS version: xb_rel_1409.140825.1928

Picked this up this morning its fun but the standard of other players is of such a low quality it really frustrates me. On all previous BF games i would only play with friends who were of good skill. I played about 15 games of this and won about 3. I came in the top 3 nearly every game. But other players are fucking useless, In hotwire my team were not even going for the points but instead looking for kills and not going near the points (even though this gamemode gives you the most XP/cash by capturing) In heist i was on my own actually trying to get the packages. while the rest sniped and did fuck all. Also shit chopper pilots crashing instanly, people not using repair tool etc etc. Same old shit really Will be much better once all the casuals and COD players fuck off

Yet TitanFall gets shit for not bothering to include one. The BF3 and 4 campaigns were some of the worst FPS campaigns I've experienced in a generation. Genuinely enjoyed Medal of Honour's two games more than BF's campaigns. Hearing that this one's is better is still a shockingly low bar.

Mr C
Played the single player part of the trial. Didn't think it was particularly offensive. There was one or two good ideas but it was mostly clichéd and dull. The graphics were a real mixed bag veering between looking really quite good and really atrocious. I'm going to assume this has been made by the visceral B team. Think it'll be a game I skip to be honest.
Harry
Watching the giantbomb quick look, this single player looks poor. I actually really like the concept and the tone to an extent I just think this game is technically woeful by today's standards. Having played the multiplayer beta it's night and day, GTA puts this to absolute shame...
Born2beSlicker
Nah man, just do it vertical sentences: Slicker is the biggest liberal on the forum Possibly even PLANET EARTH!

MoBiUGeArSkIn
Although it isn't. Clearly. Slicker is the biggest liberal on the forum, possibly even PLANET EARTH, and it breezed past him.
Can I get that engraved on my Xbox?
MoBiUGeArSkIn
Although it isn't. Clearly. Slicker is the biggest liberal on the forum, possibly even PLANET EARTH, and it breezed past him. The whole thing is Ferguson is a clusterfuck of sociopolitical issues. And those are unlikely to be resolved in a Battlefield game. Not that a Battlefield game shouldn't be able to revel in cop show clichés, at the risk of upsetting some delicate individuals. The West has been decimating the Middle East, literally and digitally, for years. The West still is. But GOD FORBID that DICE puts a gun in the hand of a black man and calls him a criminal.
hallben
If you took that out, your statement would be considerably less assholeish. It just shows how little thought goes into what you type. Perhaps it's not the point you were trying to make, but it was still a point you made.
MoBiUGeArSkIn
It's like you're deliberately trying to miss the point. I wonder, if I took the words "shootings and" out, would you still try so hard to miss the point? Probably.
hallben
Not trying to bastardise it, just draw attention to how you being able to have a favourite thing about such an appalling event is fucking revolting. I am downloading the trial and will give it a go tomorrow. I can't wait to try the SP.
MoBiUGeArSkIn
The media circus is a joke, as is your attempt to bastardise my comment. Hippy liberals.
hallben
MoBiUGeArSkIn
My favourite thing about the Ferguson shootings...
YOU. ARE. AN. ASS.
MoBiUGeArSkIn
Big number, but how many of those are being investigated for being unjust? America has a gun problem. Who knew. Do you really think Hardline will be as black and white (aha!) as that? I put money on there being crooked cops and police corruption. Because it's clearly that kind of story. I've been watching some streams, the campaign actually looks fun compared to the last few.
Born2beSlicker
They don't get a pass per say, they are easier to disconnect from. The military is universally billed as good vs bad making fictional stories easier to digest. When cops are painted as good guys in a game in the same country where over 200 people have been killed by cops in 2015 so far, it's much harder to stomach.
MoBiUGeArSkIn
Funny how the countless military shooters that have us blasting through the middle east, whilst real soldiers blast through the middle east, get a pass. My favourite thing about the Ferguson shootings and fallout was Antonio Martin. The media quickly gave up on that, think it took 72 hours, because it didn't fit the script.
Born2beSlicker
This and the ramifications it has caused over the past year. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Ferguson_unrest
MoBiUGeArSkIn
The "current climate"?
Danger Moss
Played several MP games earlier. It's fun and relatively inoffensive in itself. I mean it's just a battlefield game with some new maps and modes. Not a patch on BF4 but decent enough. The SP though. Jesus fucking Christ! Tonally, in the current climate it's all kinds of wrong. Not to mention it's just plain bad. Terrible writing, cringe worthy dialogue and generic deplorable characters. These guys did Dead Space? Really!?
Danger Moss
Anyway. EA Access members can start playing this today for free, but for 10 hours instead of the usual 6. http://uk.ign.com/articles/2015/02/25/b ... f-gameplay Initially I thought I'd be able to play the SP for free. But your limited to the first chapter during the trial period. :(

Awesome, I just started watching Game of Thrones from the beginning again this week too.

Great stuff. Is the Wolf game they made any good? I will admit, I kinda got a bit bored in some parts of the Walking Dead I & II.
Danger Moss
Awesome. Can't wait.
Jerec
Is the Wolf game they made any good?
Yes it's excellent.

Phlashman
Think I'll get on this, but still have Walking Dead to play through.
Tezcatlipoca
I've still got The Walking Dead *and* The Wolf Among Us to finish :lol: :oops: (just the last ep of each, I think) Definitely getting this, though. Telltale + Game of Thrones? Hell yes!

Is this episodic or a one off? Any details on price?
Craigimt
Episodic and it'll probably be around £20 for all the episodes.

Britxbox - Telltale’s Game of Thrones Episode One will be released from 2 December
Danger Moss
Just played the first episode. Superb stuff. Captures the tone of the show perfectly. Glad they didn't decide to focus on one player character. If your at all a fan of the books and/or TV show this is a must have.

I'm interested in this because I like the telltale style but their success has only lead them to price themselves out of the market. £25 for a seaon pass or 4.99 for the first episode. It's 3.99 on previous gen consoles which is reasonable. Also I just watched some fucking idiot streaming waving his arms around " yo subscribe to me, come on 70 likes and I give away box sets and stuff subscribe subscribe, come on we're so close!" (yeah one of them) and amongst all of that heinous grotesque noise he said he paid $25 for the season pass. £25 for us is $40. I don't expect it to be £15 but why do we have to pay so much more. Surely £18.99 is a reasonable adjustment. It's just something you can't get away with this time around yet it seems to be getting worse.
Danger Moss
What format you on about? It's £3.99 for episode 1 on Xbox One then £15.99 for the season pass which includes episodes 2-6. Just shy of £20 for everything.
Harry
PSN 24.99 for the season and 4.99 per episode. Walking dead seasons are £20 each but recently on sale for £7.99 each Wolf amoung us is £20 for the season Tales from the borderlands released yesterday on PSN is just £18.99 for the season but still £4.99 for the first episode. I might just get the iOS versions because you get the first episode free... (Wolf amoung us that is)
Tezcatlipoca
Do you watch the TV series, Harry? From what I have read of this, it's not very accessible to people who are not fans of the source, unlike The Walking Dead or The Wolf Among Us.
Harry
No never seen it. Still never seen the walking dead either. I'm just pointing out that I think telltale have something unique and great but are thinking too big too fast.
Danger Moss
They're not charging anymore than they have done in the past. At least not on Xbox one at least.
Tezcatlipoca
From what I have read of this, it's not very accessible to people who are not fans of the source, unlike The Walking Dead or The Wolf Among Us.
Yup totally. If you've not at least watched 3 seasons of the show and/or halfway through the third book you'll be completely lost. It begins during the Red Wedding.
Tezcatlipoca
Really not one for anyone who doesn't watch the series :lol: People have been complaining that the PS4 version costs more than Xbox One: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014- ... n-xbox-one
Floyd
If only there were enough hours in the day..... I might wait for a Vita release. I very much enjoyed the walking dead on Vita.
Harry
Yeah and pay console prices. 19.99 on vita for telltale games. Mobile get the same game for half that.

So anyway the Game The episode felt longer than any of other Telltale games episodes. Actual Spoiler you've been warned! Fuck Ramsey Snow is a cunt! Knife to the neck in the middle of an arguement with him, I was shocked and so pissed off!

Yeah. Totally came out the blue as well as it seemed the situation had been resolved. He's a horrible but at the same time brilliant character.
Mr C
Whoa the end of this episode. Talk about being punched in the gut!

I thought it was horribly predictable and by far the ugliest thing I have played this year.

Got the season pass and played and loved the first episode but i think i will wait until they are all released. I like playing the telltale games in 2 or 3 sittings.
Jerec
Picked up the SP with the 10% off code, bargain really and so far its great. Proper hamming up the scummy southern/northern bastard accents though, but I guess thats what the Yanks love.
Danger Moss
Episode 2 is out now! :D
hancocaj
Wow hadn't realised the second episode only came out yesterday. I just completed episodes 1 and 2, and really enjoyed them. As per earlier posts if you have not watched at least 3 series or read several books you won't really know what's going on. I think the story and plot dies an amazing job of pullingbout the themes of GoT. The plotting and scheming, favours upon favours...really good. Only slight snag was episode 2 doesn't seem to remember your choices from episode 1 so the recap is a bit jarring. Anyway well worth getting if you're a GoT fan! (Even better I got the telltale all games bundle for £35!). :)
Tezcatlipoca
No time to write an article about this, but choices from ep 1 are not carrying over to ep 2 for some people playing the Xbox One version, causing some people on Xbox One to be stuck with the default choices. One of many threads: http://www.telltalegames.com/support/di ... n-xbox-one Eurogamer, GameSpot, and others ran with it today, although it seems to have been acknowledged by Telltale soon after release on Wednesday: https://www.telltalegames.com/support/d ... data-issue
patrick_bateman
Yay! Another buggered game! Got the season pass but im waiting until all are released. Hopefully by that time its fixed.
Mr C
I'll wait before playing this episode then. Telltale usually fix issues like this pretty quickly though
Tezcatlipoca
Do they?
the Eurogamer link
Some users suggest the problem is part of a wider issue where the game's first episode fails to record a player's choices upon completion - something Telltale has been aware of since early December but has yet to rectify.
Danger Moss
My choices carried over no problem. With regards the episode itself, not a patch on the first one. The opening instant fail QTE almost made me turn off.

I whish they'd churn out the borderlands episodes as often as this.

Yep it looks like Borderlands is taking a back seat even though it's better than this.

I can't believe there is no racing as the cops, and there justification was that people tended to play 50/50 as cops or racers... what?!
