  1. Amazing work, and the history was an interesting read. Someone get this girl this award
  2. I was going to try to answer these questions one at a time, but I think it's easier and less repetitive to just cover it all at once. Playing games Xbox One is region free. Any games you own digitally or physically will work just fine, regardless of your console's region. The only exception are some Chinese titles, but I won't get into that here since it doesn't apply to you. And yes, that applies to backwards compatible games as well. Buying games This is the main thing that is affected by your console's region. If your console is set to US then you will be using the US marketplace, meaning you can only buy what is available to US customers and you are paying in USD. If your region is set to Japan then you will be using to the Japanese marketplace and will be paying in JPY. There are a few things worth noting here: just like on PSN, your account has a wallet of all the different currencies and yes you can buy gift cards to give yourself credit, and use that credit to buy games. You will not be able to use credit to buy 360 games however, that can only be done on an actual 360 console. if you use the Japanese region, if you want to buy CERO-Z rated games (ESRB M equivalent) you will need to make the purchase with a Japanese credit card; a credit of JPY on your account cannot be used for these. if you use the Japanese region, you will not be able to buy any backwards compatible 360 games. Although the Xbox One marketplace is unlocked, the 360 marketplace is not, meaning your US account can only buy games from the US 360 marketplace, and buying backwards compatible games still goes through the 360 marketplace. even though there is no more region locking, there are still region specific versions of games released, usually for censorship reasons. Japan is one of these countries, so if you want to play with your US friends you will want to make sure you buy from the US region as these are considered separate titles, and you will not be able to play online with people using the other version. A popular example that would apply here would be GTA 5. Game pass Worth nothing I suppose because I was just talking about the marketplace. Like the marketplace, the games available on game pass are also dependent on your region. Game pass just launched in Japan a couple of weeks ago. Language For the system itself (home/guide) you can set the language to English, and this is a separate setting from the region. It is possible to have your region set to Japan and language set to English. For games, I'm not sure. This is the first time I've heard of any games automatically changing based off your system settings, and I don't think that's actually true. But if it is, I would assume it would change automatically based off your console's language rather than your console's region. If you are interested in any Japanese backwards compatible titles, I would do a quick google search first to see which languages are supported, because some games do have English and some are Japanese only; it's really just game dependent. tl;dr you should be totally fine with your console's region set to US.
  3. Speaking as a software engineer who also has some project management experience, you guys desperately need to get out of this mindset. Holding back until everything is "perfect" - in quotes because there is no such thing as defect-free software - means you've delivered nothing when you could have delivered something, and in the literal years the users of this site have been waiting for updates, TA has eaten your lunch. Spec out what you want to deliver, set a timeline to do it in, and focus on getting that out to your users. Then iterate. If you think of new features you want to implement along the way, keep track of them somewhere but they belong in the iteration pile. That way you avoid scope creep. Focus your development effort on the highest value items, making sure they are high quality of course (ie, fixing stop ship defects along the way) but not fixing every little thing; releasing something with a few bugs is better than releasing nothing. And most importantly, if you've reached the end of your allotted time and haven't finished everything, consider dropping some things; again, releasing something is better than nothing. I look forward to seeing these changes if and when they do come out, and really hope it's all been worth the wait!

  5. Sad day for our old 360 games but I suppose the time has come. Question though, while I know historically we've just replaced titles would we be open to making them options instead? That way we don't lose any progress already made towards a club. Eg, if the game list for a club is A B C D and we want to replace game A with AA, then A or AA B C D instead of AA B C D ?
  6. Hey, I've got some new information. First, updates/additions to your fast travel section: Achievements That Will Unlock After Fast Traveling Skag Gully Discovered Skag Gully - Discovered Skag Gully Sledge's Safe House Discovered Sledge's Safe House - Discovered Sledge's Safe House Headstone Mine Discovered Headstone Mine - Discovered Headstone Mine Trash Coast Discovered Trash Coast - Discovered Trash Coast Crazy Earl's Scrapyard Discovered The Scrapyard - Discovered The Scrapyard Krom's Canyon Discovered Krom's Canyon - Discovered Krom's Canyon Crimson Enclave Discovered Crimson Lance Enclave - Discovered Crimson Lance Enclave Eridian Promontory Discovered Eridian Promontory - Discovered Eridian Promontory Jakobs Cove House of the Ned - Complete the "House of the Ned" mission Jakobs Fodder - Complete the "Jakobs Fodder" mission Braaaaaaaaaaaaains! - Complete the "Braaaaaaaaaaaaains!" mission Night of the Living Ned - Kill Ned...sort of Ned's Undead, Baby, Ned's Undead - Kill Ned. Again. I didn't pop the Zombie Island achievements just by fast travelling, I had to travel to Jakobs Cove specifically for them to pop. I would guess that it's not actually necessary to fast travel in playthrough 1, I imagine travelling to that location in either playthrough would do the trick. Second, I also unlocked Ding! Overleveled - Reach Level 51 Ding! Overleveled to 11 - Reach Level 61 by joining another game via Xbox Live. I was already level 69 so I couldn't level up again to trigger it that way, but I joined a game to duplicate my weapons and it triggered as soon as I accepted; the game didn't even start. It did not pop when I hosted an Xbox Live game however.
  7. To buy on xbox.com: * Japanese account * Japanese IP address (use a VPN) * Japanese credit card? (my Canadian card was working fine up until a few months ago, but they must have changed something) To buy on 360: * Japanese account * NTSC-J console * Region set to Japan * Can use account balance on the console, so you can just buy Japanese currency gift cards ahead of time; other than that you need a credit card, same as above
  8. I guess I'll give it a try when I get home, but your answer is what I expected. Oh well
  9. On Xbox One we can share games and subscriptions with other accounts on the home console, and it does appear that the gold sharing applies when playing backwards compatible games (I can play online, use party chat, etc) but I was curious if anyone knows whether gold sharing applies when trying to buy a game that is on a gold-exclusive sale? It obviously doesn't work when trying to make the purchase on xbox.com, but if I were to try and make that purchase on my home Xbox would the gold discount apply?
  10. I'm not aware of any turbo controllers for XB1, but if you buy a cronusmax you can just use your 360 controllers.
