Fun game so far. I'm at 34% and finished the story mode. I love these Lego games as soon as the story mode is finished because you have all of the characters you need to openly explore everything, including free play on the story mode boards.

i played it for a little bit at my brothers...i used my discount and coupons that were gonna expire today...i still have 10.2% left on undercover that i havent had the chance to get to. finding the character tokens is a little obnoxious with how big the playable area is.

Apparently, playing offline fixes the autosave bug. Just an FYI (no direct knowledge, just from what I've read). Not sure why being online would screw things up, but that's a slightly ironic bug with all the discussion lately.

Unless a patch has already come out, then ignore this.

An interesting article from Game Industry today about how MSFT may have come to its decisions surrounding the XBO. In short, smart people in a vacuum sometimes make stupid decisions.

The Xbox One Question: Why Did Microsoft Do It?
Xbox One's DRM has given Microsoft its toughest ride at E3 in years - but the logic that led here is understandable, if mistaken.

The dust is settling on E3 2013 and by now you have probably read countless opinions about why Microsoft is wrong and how it "lost" E3 - along with a few lonely stalwarts arguing to the contrary. With the benefit of a few days' hindsight on those explosive press conferences and a few tens of thousands of words of executive interviews to provide context, I've reached a slightly different set of questions. I'm less concerned with "is Microsoft doing the right thing" - it's an argument that pits "right for consumers" against "right for a very narrowly defined segment of the industry", and I know which side always wins those arguments in the end - and more intrigued by the question, "why is Microsoft doing this?"

I'm just having trouble getting past the idea of forcing you to save them to the [non upgradable] hard drive.

I think thats a great feature and one I'd want to use. If you want to do that, fine, do the online check in.

If you want to sell your games on ebay or use it without internet don't save the games - force the disc to be present.

I got 100% of all collectibles in Sleeping Dogs. And only because I love driving that car so much. :)

I hate PC gaming. So I got The Witcher since it was on sale on steam last night. I didn't pay close enough attention and thought I saw that my computer should be capable of running it. I was wrong. Won't even start up because my video card doesn't work or something. So I bought Witcher 2 (also on sale on steam) and it worked. I am frustrated.

Thanks. Currently downloading Dishonored and Kerbal Space Program on Steam. I don't typically play games like Kerbal, but Shyster has piqued my interest.

Question. How are rental places like Gamefly or Redbox going to cope with XBox One's policy?

I highly recommend watching Scott Manley’s KSP introductory tutorial:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgPr4q5tj-Q

The tutorial was made using an older version of the game, so you will notice some changes, like for example there are more parts and the tower thing was taken off the launch pad. Scott Manley is the king of KSP tutorial videos, and he has other ones on more advanced topics like orbital docking, landing on moons, traveling to other planets, and advanced rocket design.
