They finally showed gameplay for the new Indiana Jones game at today's Xbox showcase and I thought it looked like shit.

For starters, the game is in first-person. Second, the name is ridiculous (Indiana Jones and the Great Circle). Third, the graphics were not impressive at all. They should have had Eidos or Crystal Dynamics make the game.

Update: Apparently I'm in the minority with my opinion of the game based on what I've been seeing online.

Maybe they're paying review farms to hype it.

That shit happens with anti-virus reviews all the time, which is why Norton and McAfee are always rated highly even though they're complete garbage, so I wouldn't be shocked it if was common with video games too.

On a funny note, my younger son now refers to our over weight cat as The Great Circle.

I'm debating whether or not I should get Madden 24 while it's on sale for $20. I've haven't bought a Madden game since '21 and have been getting the itch to play a football game with the playoffs wrapping up.

I had $5 in Microsoft store credit, so I ended up getting it.

It'll be interesting to see what Phil Spencer says next week with all the leaks about Microsoft games going multi-platform. It's going to be a sad day if Microsoft exits the console market.

They're going to lean heavily into publishing, but I think one more round of hardware may still come out. Their problems are serious though: Gamepass really has killed the cash flow from a mediocre crop of exclusives recently. Developer costs are higher for the platform because of the dual hardware requirements, and console sales for them have been atrocious. Lowering Series X to $350 didn't move the meter at all. The company overall is in serious cost cutting mode and games and services is getting hit hard.

I hope you're right about them releasing a 10th generation console. After that, I'll be too old to give a shit anymore.

Brad Company

I was more then right, new hardware in the future, no blockbusters heading to PS5, and ABK games coming to Gamepass. CRISIS AVERTED

Yes, very good news today, especially since they emphasized that we can have "confidence" building our digital libraries on Xbox.

I doubt their next console will be the "largest generational leap" we've ever seen, but I'm glad that's their goal.
