I thought that the Xbox/Bethesda showcase was a good show. I’m looking forward to being able to play Halo Infinite, Psychonaughts 2, Forza Horizon 5, Starfield, A Plague Tale Requiem and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2.
Cant wait to play Starfield
I know people are looking forward to Breath of the Wild 2, God of War 2, etc. But NOTHING is like a single player Bethesda game. Nothing. I absolutely cannot wait until Starfield comes out!
It’ll be an incredible exclusive.
Hang on didn’t rand love ori a 2d platformer in the style of metroid😂😂
Ori using that Nintendo formula and Rand was eating it up 🤣 . — Miles
Ori isn’t in the style of metroid.
@Jack D level design it is
@Jack D you must be new to gaming
I think if u like a game sometimes not bad to spend some money and support the developers.
What happens when the likes of sony show a cgi and you think the game is going to be awesome because of all the hype then you wasted 70 bucks on garbage at least with gamepass that doesn’t happen and developers make plenty
You can do that and still play it via a subscription service. Sub service existence doesn’t stop you from buying the game for extended support.
@Sam Alton Thanks for adding ‘some’ logic to this thread. 🙏🏼
@Sam Alton yes this was my opinion too, just when I watched the show, I kinda answered what the guys talked about. 🙂
An incredible show like always keep it up from the Xbox North crew and I!!
I’m looking forward to Microsoft flight simulator next month time to go see the world decisions decisions where to go first 👍
I’m heading to Egypt first. I wanna see those pyramids! — Miles
Hope larian studios
No, Rand. It wasn’t a question, but normally when two people are conversing you at least acknowledge what the other person is saying. There’s a back and forth.
announce @ GDC?
I think Halo Infinite multiplayer being F2P will help Game Pass. A generation of gamers havent played Halo so playing the multiplayer might get them on to GP and once there they will see whatever else in there.
Only first season of halo multiplayer are going to be free . Second season etc . Going to have to pay for
miles, be honest, did you think of chaturbate before confirming the name of your show to be chaturdays
Nope! Thought hadn’t crossed my mind. But now I know where your head is at 🤣 — Miles
How is the success of Halo multiplayer not going to push people to jump into the campaign? 🤔
I refuse to pay for Battle passes/ Season passes..
I will NOT pre-pay for DLC..
I think things like battle passes are ok in free to play games as long as it doesn’t have any pay to win elements.
Sega is still my dream. No matter what anyone says. They have so much that could really help Xbox.
Nah best aquisiton would be Take-Two followed by Capcom or Square Enix
Kinda depends on what you want the studio/publishers for.
@Emo DaDon nah, only Rockstar has value. T2 wants $40B to sell. They’re just not worth it.
Amazing content like always.
Thanks so much Danumis! Really appreciate that. — Miles
Nintendo is completely and utterly useless
For 2 year olds, Nintendo is the biggest thing in the world.
Will somebody please share the love for MechWarrior5!
Console exclusive and in Game Pass.
Great as always, guys.
MechWarrior is a ton of fun! The destructions physics are so good! — Miles
From Soft acquisition,one can only dream,although it wouldn’t be nice for ps guys to be looked out like we were( bloodborne/demon souls). If we cant share then lets get them on our side plse Microsoft.
From Software is 100% my golden goose. — Miles
I don’t get the Hype for CGI trailers.
Like if the game had a predecessor and it was great ok I kinda get that
But I don’t trust anything till it’s playable.
After Cyberpunk I don’t even trust gameplay trailers anymore.
Once it’s out in the wild and reviewers get the hands on and I can see what’s up.
Then I make my decisions now….
Unless the collectors edition is super sweet.
Then I roll the dice
Studio I would want is mistwalker, made 2 games on 360 Japanese studio some connection etc. Dreaming big would be cd project red but that’s messy to be real.
Mistwalker would be really cool and would definitely help with the JRPG problem Xbox currently has. — Miles
If you can negotiate the IP for several years or get the publishing rights for video games for the IP then WB is obviously the great white whale of acquisitions.
That would be Blue Whale 🐳
Despite only 29 episodes in, this has to be one of my favorite Xbox Chaturday shows. I enjoyed the chemistry and banter between Miles Dompier and Rand Al Thor 19. Miles Rand was right when he said, you’re a Rockstar, and we need more Miles in the gaming industry who speak the truth and always comes from a place of love for games regardless of platform. Thank you for an awesome Father’s day episode for me of Xbox Chaturday.
Miles! Great job as always you are fantastic host and I love this podcast. As a fan of Xbox Two as well, holy hell Rand was like pulling teeth as a guest trying to get that man to interact with the podcast. 🙁 I support y’all, and hope it was just an off day for him. Keep the Chaturdays swingin’!!
Its not that hard to inform yourself before going into a massive rant about how BF maps and content is paid…
Apologies there. It sounds like maps will be free, but the pricing model and a year one pass are still questionable decisions in this day and age. — Miles
I doubt WB would sell their 2 biggest studios, especially after just recently doubling down on the investment of their gaming division. Also Remedy and Capcom are both public companies, so acquiring either would be pretty much impossible
Imagine Jeff Keighley walking behind you in a dark alley holding a container of Vaseline petroleum jelly.
Inflation is going to hit hard next year? It’s at 400% after Biden took over. His son just sold a painting for $500K.
I agree Miles, Microsoft wants publishers with a lot of content. Capcom has a lot over the years. Sega is basically goofy yakuza games now.
island in the sun is the weezer track! not so sure about the mosh, but im sure you can make it work
