  3. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2QuFCiLpx0]G.O.M. - Foreign Exchange (Selah The Corner, Bizzle) - YouTube[/ame] P.S. I used the "Search" feature and found no results for a thread on this subject. I thought that there was, but I guess I was wrong. I apologize in advance if there's already a thread on this subject. If there's a thread on this subject already, then feel free to not only delete this one, but also direct me and everybody else to the one that's already in existence, moderators.
  4. This thread is for everything Steelbook, show off your collection, discuss new or future releases, ect... Let me start with my current collection, 360 Cases Updated 7/10/19 Updated 9/13.20
  5. I thought of starting this up as I couldn't find similar threads like this for games. So: RATE THE LAST GAME YOU PLAYED (Doesn't matter if you just completed one or just played for a couple of hours or so ) Homefront - 6/10 Was looking forward to this for a while. Finally played and was unfortunately let down. The only thing that kind of saves it from being below 5 is the MP as it's not too bad (when you can get into a game )
  6. Thought it was time to have an X1 version of the 360 thread. My last X1 complete was Max and Magic marker. 1000\1000. But I still have 2 challenges left......
  7. This thread is as the title says, to share the last Hard or Annoying Achievement that you got. Everyone has most likely had one or the other, or both, so go ahead and share yours! My last hard Achievement was Amandine Is Down in Blue Estate. This took me many tries, along with a little bit of frustration, but after a good solid night of playing, I finally beat that 2.1 Million score on the Arcade Level 2, on Crazytrain. I was so relieved when this finally popped! The most recent annoying Achievement I got was in Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare, ha ha... It was Hunting Season, which is for vanquishing 100 each of the Soldiers, Scientists, Engineers and All-Stars. Towards the end, since you don't really know which ones you need more kills on and which ones you've already maxed out for the Achievement, you find yourself killing 10-15 zombies and the Achievement tracker bar doesn't move up. Lots and lots of multiplayer matches later, and with a little help from my friends, I finally got this one as well though. It's a very easy Achievement, but just time consuming and rather annoying.
  8. Thread title seems self-explanatory. Post here when you buy a new game, comment on others' purchases, tell us why you bought it, etc. I picked up my GTA V preorder this afternoon. While I was there, I snagged something called Arcade Compilation Disc, which includes Pac-Man Championship Edition, UNO, Boom Boom Rocket, Feeding Frenzy, and Luxor 2. Bought it for the Pac-Man because it was $2.69.
  9. While I'm sure some of you who're into comics and horror know what "The Walking Dead" is, I'm sure others of you are not as familiar with the name. [Riped from a portion of the Wikipedia article due to laziness] http://media.comicvine.com/uploads/0/978/96487-18166-106801-1-the-walking-dead_super.jpg A television show was announced in August of last year and finally we are getting some behind the scenes shots of the upcoming AMC series. The series is scheduled for an October airing as filming was started last month. The comic series is extremely good and without a doubt something worth reading if your into this sort of thing. Come Fall those Zombie lovers still out there may have something to look forward to each week other then a paycheck and bills. MTV's First Look At 'The Walking Dead' TV Series! http://splashpage.mtv.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/dead2.jpg I looked a few pages back and didn't see anyone mention this on any of the boards I looked at and while I know this should have been posted on the Television boards, I didn't notice much activity there and wanted to get this to as many people as possible.
  10. I thought it would be nice to have a thread dedicated to sharing our experiences in the community events. We have the discussion thread but it is also the vouching thread and a lot of discussion can make it hard for Mods to shift through the posts for actual vouching posts. Also, the threads for individual events get closed as soon as the event ends so discussion in those threads has time constraints. So, this thread will be where we can post videos, post screenshots and tell stories about the fun we had in community events. Feel free to discuss anything concerning the events, positive or negative. Just try to stay on topic. I'll start us off with some videos from the November 23-29, 2015 Games with Gold event. These videos are from an 8 person session of Knight Squad and the participants are: bigbear XBA, Spiral462, BlackoutCal, BareBumCheeks, Kairi, PiixL, KillerBEA and TemporalWizard. The first video is a free for all game mode much like capture the flag. The main point scoring goal is to capture the grail and return it to your spawn. Kills and a few other actions score points as well: [ame] [/ame] The second video is from a "King of the Hill" game mode. You score points through kills and by spending time in the middle area. Note: the end of video one is captured in this video as well: [ame] [/ame] Unfortunately, I only have game audio for both videos. I promise that they would be 4x as entertaining if I had our party audio along with the video.

  12. Note: As of June 11, 2019 the BC program is no longer active and no new additions are planned. It is possible the program will live again after the release of the next console in 2020, but we will have to wait and see. I can play Xbox 360 games on Xbox One? Cool! Yes! Well, some of them. See this link. Oh, so only the games listed at that link will work? Right. And we don't know any others coming? They've announced a few, and some devs/pubs have voiced support, but the rest will be a mystery until they are announced. What about Original Xbox games? Soon! At E3 2017, Microsoft announced the program will expand to OG Xbox games. The first two announced are Crimson Skies and Fusion Frenzy, though no release date is known for them. OK, I have some of those. What do I do? If you own the game digitally, check your "Ready to Install" list on your Xbox One, it should be there waiting for you. If you own a physical copy, pop that baby into your Xbox One and it will install automatically like any other game. Be aware that just like an Xbox One game, you'll have to have the disc in the tray to play it with a physical install. What if I'm Game Sharing with a friend, do I get their BC games too? Absolutely! All owned content is shared, so if you are using the "Home" trick to share digital content with a friend/family member, you will have access to everything they own, including BC Xbox 360 games (and vice versa). What about the stackable versions of the games on that list? I'm glad you asked! With the magic of backward compatibility, your Xbox One now acts as a region-free Xbox 360. If a game is on the backcompat list and has a stackable version, you can install both (or all if more than two) on your Xbox One and play them with no issue. Stackable Gamerscore for everyone! Hey, this looks just like my Xbox 360 now! Sure does! What you're playing is an emulator for the Xbox 360 game. Microsoft creates a unique emulator for each specific game to run on Xbox One, and it simulates the complete Xbox 360 experience, including the guide. The Xbox 360 guide is back?! Yep! At least for your backward compatible Xbox 360 games. Press the "View" and "Menu" buttons at the same time. Those are the two buttons on either side of the lit up Xbox button. Wait, you said a unique emulator for each game? Correct. Backward compatibility is being achieved on the software end, not the hardware end. What Microsoft is doing is making an app for each game individually. This is why only some games work, as they have to do quite a bit of work to make it happen. There's also issues of publishers signing on to the program, and licensing rights. So there are games that might never be backward compatible? Unfortunately. It is confirmed first of all that games requiring a peripheral will never work. This includes any Kinect game, music games, and the vision camera. You also can't use the Xbox 360 controller. Also, as I mentioned above, for a game to be backward compatible, the game's publisher has to sign off on the process (no one knows why they wouldn't, but this has been stressed often), and there are many licensing issues that could get in the way (rights to characters, music, etc). There is an unfortunate side effect to note due to the peripheral issue... some games will be backward compatible, but you will not be able to complete some of the achievements via backward compatibility. A current example is Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise. The game works, but there are achievements tied to scanning in new pinatas with the vision camera. As you can not use the vision camera on Xbox One, you will need to own an Xbox 360 to unlock those achievements. I still don't get why a publisher would not want to support this program. No one does. Aside from the possibility of selling a remaster or collection made for Xbox One, there doesn't seem to be any reason a company should say "No" to having a game be backward compatible. There are a number of publishers who have already expressed their support, as seen in this image. I'm sure more will follow as the program gains popularity. So where can I buy these games? You can always pick up a physical copy from wherever you did so previously. Digitally, you'll need to purchase the games either on the console, or on the xbox.com marketplace. If you buy on the console, they'll start installing immediately. If you buy online, they will show up in your Ready to Install list on your console. Can I continue where I left off in the game on Xbox 360? Yup! You'll need to still own an Xbox 360 with your original save file for this to work though. From there, upload your saved game to the cloud, and it will be available for use on Xbox One. You'll be using the same achievement list as well, so any progress you've made there will be saved. This applies even if you don't have a save file to pick up from. If you have to start a new game, you'll still have any achievements unlocked that you did before - but not the progress toward locked achievements that were tied to your original save file. What about DLC? Can I play that? No doubt. DLC for BC games will work the same as it did on Xbox 360, and the same as it does for normal Xbox One games. After you install the main game, go to "Manage Game" to install any associated DLC (assuming you own it, of course). For physical DLC, it will install off the disc without issue. How do multi-disc games work? Your Xbox One will only recognize the first disc. The game will install from there (remember, you're downloading and installing an emulator so it's only one file and not one for each disc), and you'll need it in the tray to play the game. The other discs will be useless. The game will still come to prompts where it would ask you to change discs, and then game will simply immediately bypass them as if you did so. Can I switch back and forth playing the game between the 360 and One? Yup! The magic of the cloud is at work, and you can jump back and forth at will. Can I use the same Gamertag on both consoles at once? Not if you're playing a BC game on Xbox One. Essentially the system will think you're using two Xbox 360's, and one of the accounts will be logged out. What if I log in with an alt on one console? There ya go! Instant boost partner. If you own a game digitally, or two copies of it physically, you can use two different profiles across your Xbox 360 and your Xbox One to essentially play the game with yourself. This should be handy for any games that can be boosted with only two people. Can I play with my friends who still only have an Xbox 360? Yes! Playing an Xbox 360 game via backward compatibility on Xbox One acts the same as if you were playing it on Xbox 360. You can play co-op and multiplayer games with people on both consoles and chat with them in parties. Is there some way to tell Microsoft which games I'd like to see? Absolutely. Vote here. Do note that a game receiving a ton of votes does not guarantee that it will come to the BC program. There are still the issues I mentioned above that need to be worked through. I have a question you haven't covered yet. Post it below and I'll do my best to answer and add it to this post for everyone else to see.
  13. World War Z To participate in this event, simply take part in a multiplayer or co-op gaming session of World War Z with an ambassador, promotor, subscriber or staff and you'll be verified and vouched for in the appropriate thread. If you are interested in playing with XBA members, please post in this thread and check back often for members wanting to play throughout the week. Also be sure to occasionally check XBL status of members that have posted so that you can send them messages over Live to see if they're available to play. Replying in this thread or sending them a PM are also great ways to arrange a session. Staff members, Subscribers and Ambassadors will be hosting games during the week, posting when they're available and may even create sessions using XBA's MySessions to increase participation. If you'd like to host games yourself, by all means, please do so. Please Read: [spoiler=pleaseread2995411]Note 1: An ambassador, promotor, subscriber or staff will vouch for you when playing with them during a related session. Note 2: Posting here looking for co-op partners or multiplayer sessions for achievements or fun is perfectly fine and encouraged, as is general conversation about the event game. Note 3: Play nice with other members during multiplayer events, please.
  14. I just wanted to make a quick announcement - we've added 2 new tiers to the Games With Gold Challenge Club! You can get a look at them HERE. We've also made a slight change to Tiers 1 & 3: Tier 1 had a game that couldn't be purchased any more, and Tier 3 had a game that, while possible to complete, was not realistically achievable. Shoot Many Robots has been replaced by Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, and Chariot has been replaced by Borderlands The old games will still count for 30 days from today, but after that only the replacements will count.
  15. Please use this thread for discussing the tournament. It's important to have a bit of banter during a videogame tournament.

  17. If the same list turns up for Xbox One and is retroactive, I'll have everything already except some crossbow kills
  18. A couple of us thought it would be a good idea to have a thread for this, as we couldn't really talk about everything in the other GoT thread for fear of spoilers. I hope Joffrey gets his face bitten off by a direwolf.
  19. http://gfxuploader.com/images/lz66ssdybjt60k2cao.png Since the original thread derailed, we have decided to start a new thread with some ground rules to stop the stream of spam. This thread is simple, rate the signature of the member above you. You don't have to go into lighting, C4D's, flow, text/render placement or brushes as long as you give your opinion about what you like/dislike. http://gfxuploader.com/images/iyflxuccefegoxi1zii3.png Only rate the signature directly above you The signature you are rating must be in a quote Rate between 1 - 10, no more 9999/10 ratings here To your best knowledge give (constructive) feedback about what to like/dislike Be fair, most people have put a lot of effort into an image so if you don't like or know an artist/band/game/movie/anime/show don't bother responding Only rate when you have a signature of your own, no gamercards here unless it's super awesome Only post if you can handle feedback Wait until 2 other members have posted before you post again You are allowed to post a different signature, please say you want that signature rated instead of your current one No discussions here. We all like each other, remember? You are allowed to quote an earlier post as long as you follow the rules Enjoy and please rate mine
  20. Xbox One Maximum Clubs Sign-Up Maximum Club Rules *Please view our Xbox One Maximum Clubs FAQs thread for any unanswered questions! Xbox One Maximum Clubs Point Tracking Sub-Forum 1. You must have been a member of XBA for at least 1 month. You must also be an active user, and have 100 non-spam posts for ALL club sign-ups.* * Rule does not apply to subscribing members 2. Do not put more than 10 games per post. We would prefer you create a new post rather than edit your existing posts if you complete another game before your previous sign up is processed. Posting more than 10 games in any one post will result in the post being DELETED. 3. Please HYPERLINK all games to their appropriate club thread. List NEW if a new club thread needs to be created. List your games in ALPHABETICAL ORDER. Please, note that sign-up posts that are not hyperlinking game threads or following the rules and examples in this post will not be accepted and could lead to your sign up being deleted and unprocessed. Please follow the examples provided in this post when signing up. If you're signing up DLC for a club that already exists, please hyperlink the club. Hyperlinking can be done either by copying and pasting the URL of the clubs into your posts underneath the name of each club, or by highlighting the name of a Maximum Club you've written in your post, pressing the 'Insert Hyperlink' button in the posting window, and entering the club's URL into the pop-up box. 4. ALL achievements must be obtained and ALL gamerscore must be unlocked in a game in order to sign-up to be part of any game or DLC maximum club. 5. To have a completion counted towards your total on OUR leaderboards you need to have completed and be signing up the base game AND any/all DLC that is currently available. We don't remove completions from people if more DLC is released at a later date since all of this information is manually input and it would be an impossible task to keep up with. 6. Every game with its own unique gamerscore will have its own club. 7. If you are signing up for SPOTLIGHT POSITION in a club (first and second in Xbox 360 Retail and Arcade clubs; first to fifth in Xbox One clubs), DO NOT EDIT an earlier post if you have one. Please post again to sign up for this club. Remember members are added based on sign-up date NOT timestamps on Xbox Live. You MAY double post or more in this thread only in lieu of editing. If you are eligible for a spotlight position, you may break rule number 2 to sign up the spotlighted games. Any posts that are ineligible for a spotlight position will be DELETED. 8. All achievements you've unlocked that specifically require you to be connected to Xbox Live to obtain (kills in online multiplayer, for example) MUST have a timestamp. 9. Your privacy settings must be turned off so we can see your profile. You must also have your gamercard attached to your profile. If we can't see your gamercard or access your profile your post will be removed. 10. CHEATING OF ANY SORT WILL NOT BE TOLERATED! If you are caught cheating in any way deemed unfit by this site, or by Microsoft, you will be banned from the Clubs, and possibly the site. 11. Mixing your achievements with DLC does not count towards an original 1000 completion. You must earn all the original achievements that come with the game. If you complete the DLC before the retail achievements you may sign up for those clubs. 12. While posting your games do not use colored text, post images, use alternative fonts or use any text styles. Doing so wastes our time removing the styling from your post. 13. You MUST link your Gamertag to your profile! To add your gamertag to your profile go to User CP>Edit Your Details> Fill in Gamertag field at the bottom of your profile. 14. No member of the staff with the power to edit the clubs are allowed to CREATE a thread for the sake of adding themselves to a SPOTLIGHT POSITION. They must post in the appropriate threads regarding sign-ups to be added just like everyone else. 15. Each Maximum Club sign-up thread will have example posts to guide you on how to correctly post your submission. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with these before posting to avoid unwanted delays. 16. You cannot sign up for a game that you have completed if the achievements are not live on your console or on xbox.com. They cannot be verified and posts of this nature will be rejected.
