XB1 didn't become Backwards Compatible until 2017, so that wouldn't be the reason for those dates. It didn't even come out until the end of 2013.

According to this article, it became available November 12, 2015.

I added release dates for the Fallout 3 Xbox 360 DLC and whoever flagged these said the release dates were 2012-2013. That is completely wrong. They were released all throughout 2009. The person added the link in the rejection comments but it says 2012-2013 most likely due to a relisting of some sort when backwards compatibility was added for Xbox One.

Best Buy has been selling LRGames for over a year at least. Are you sure the pre-orders aren't LRG's? I have maybe 10-12 LRG's and I've never ordered from them, just bought them in store at Best Buy.

They currently have a ton of games available for online purchase as well.

Edit: Here are their current LRG pre-orders. All the ones you mentioned are here.

They've been selling to Best Buy for nearly four years actually. I first bouth an LRG game from them back at the beginning of 2019.

Thanks! I stopped uploading via mobile because of this. Was super frustrating. Glad it's been fixed.

Classic Video Games / Re: PlayStation Vita turns 10 years old.

I have a single memory attached to the Vita. The day it launched I wound up with appendicitis. That may not seem like a big deal, but I didn't realize it until two days later when I went septic and nearly died in the hospital. I thought I just had a bad flu and waited it out for two days. My family and girlfriend noticed I wasn't getting up anymore and stopped going to the bathroom and was weak. They took me to the ER and I wound up staying for 3 days puking my guts out trying to recover. I had my family bring my Vita because I thought I would play it, but every time I looked at the screen I started puking. Not a fun way to spend the weekend of a console launch.

I upgraded to a Switch OLED on my vacation in Oregon this week and man what a difference! There are a lot of different upgrades that seem small at first, but the overall package is well worth the upgrade. I can't go back to my original model or Lite now. I also picked up Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne Remaster. I never got around to it on the PS2. I also got Atelier Sophie 2. I was hoping for some good eShop sales this week, but it's all games I own on PC, and non of my wishlist items are on sale sadly. I also got the Doom: The Classics Collection Collector's Edition from Limited Run Games. Fantastic quality and lots of good items. I haven't been retro collecting in quite some time due to just stuffing money in the savings account for a house purchase.

I have before with stickers or accidentally torn maps and manuals. I now use Bestine to remove any dirt, stickers, glue, disc labels, etc. Stamp collectors use it to remove stamps from things. You just use a q-tip and let it soak for a minute or two and the sticker comes right off and the ink or whatever underneath isn't touched. I've been using it for years now. If it's a metal label or stickers you just pry up a small corner and start swiping underneath and slowly pull up. The only downside is that it evaporates quickly.

As time goes on I actually have less time to game than I did 10 years ago. I'm mostly playing new games on PC or consoles when I can, but collecting comes and goes in spurts. I'll sometimes drop $500 on a bunch of retro games or pre-order a collector's edition of something. Sometimes I'll knock out the cheap common games on my list and buy a dozen or so on eBay. Then I'll stop for a few months and switch between playing new games and playing a retro one here or there to get it off my list. My plan is to eventually play every game I have bought.

My wife is a gamer and collects casually. She would probably keep what she wanted and sell the rest off for the kids. I have my collection insured as well, so if something happens to the house we'd get money for it that way too.

Nope. I don't even name my car. I don't give inanimate objects names unless it works naturally and was some sort of inside joke. I don't call them pronouns either. The only thing you could say that for is figures. If it's a female I'll refer to it as "she" and the same for males, but it's obvious they have genders.

I've been playing on PC. I have a Thrustmaster T300 RS GT Edition with the TH8A shifter and T-LCM pedals on a racing stand. I also have a 34" ultrawide monitor so the widescreen cockpit looks amazing. Plays like butter and just really loving it. I never finished Horizon 3 or 4, but I feel more inclined to this time due to the better wheel implementation. I'm also still chipping away at Forza Motosport 7.

I'm going to add a few games for myself. I'm not too sure about Elding Ring as I don't like Dark Souls or Souls-like games. They're not bad, I just don't have enough time to dedicate to a single game to perfection which those games need.

All the others you mentioned are exciting including Gran Turismo 7, Sifu, Tiny Tina's Wonderland, Starfield, A Plague Tale: Requiem (the first was one of the best games of 2020), Company of Heroes 3, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.

I'd also like to comment that the Metro series is created by the same team (mostly) who did STALKER.

Site Feedback / Re: Finished games list
« on: October 13, 2021, 08:23:58 am »
I have a Google doc of every game I've completed since I was 15! (2005). There used to be a yearly competition on a forum back in the day and everyone would post and update a list of what they finished with a mini-review/score and the winner would be tallied up at the end of the year. It was just a year-long thread titled "Games You Finished in 2xxx). It was really fun and I did that for almost 10 years until the forum shut down, and now I just keep the list for myself.

General / Re: Game of the year contenders

This year was definitely anemic in terms of great games. I don't have a PS5, but from what I've seen of Returnal and Ratchet & Clank those are contenders. Deathloop for sure, and Psychonauts 2 only because there's not much else. I highly doubt Halo Infinite will make the cut as most games in December don't tend to make it for that year, and I have low expectations for that game. I have a friend who is a game tester for 343, and I've seen the first level of the campaign (he wasn't "supposed to show me" but work from home during lockdowns at the beginning of this year made it possible) There were lighting and graphical issues that needed fixing, but it seemed like standard Halo affair.

Modern Video Games / Re: Xbox One S is kinda underrated. [Opinion]
« on: April 04, 2021, 12:48:52 am »
I had both the original Xbox One and an S and the only appeal for the S system was 4K Blu-Ray movies and it upscaled games into 4K. While it couldn't render them in that resolution the upscale was nice especially for backward compatible games. Honestly, that's the only advantage over the original model. I have a One X now, and it's just sitting collecting dust because every Xbox One exclusive jumped ship to either PS4 or is now on PC. I mean all of them are on PC now except Forza Motorsport 5. The Xbox is a nice system to have if you don't already own a PC or PS4 as the exclusives on the system are anemic at best. The original Xbox honestly had the best exclusives and the 360 did for a few years and they all mostly jumped ship to PS3 or PC. Microsoft just couldn't hold on to exclusives or canceled them all.
