To do that I would need to buy it first.

As I found out with SPLIT SECOND, you have to put the disc in and then the console basically copies the entire disc to the XB1's hard drive before you can play the game.

It then runs the game from the hard drive, but you have to have the disc in the drive to play, it just uses the disc as the 'key' basically.

When you insert the disc, it will "install" the game to the hard disc. Which means it fucks off for hours downloading how ever many gigs of data it needs to run the 4k enhanced version.

You'll need the disc in the play it as it acts like a proof of purchase, but it'll never access the disc after boot.

Edit: The Manx Marauder beat me too it.

Fallout 3 is on this list so it'll just be a matter of inserting the disk.

If there's extras textures to download, the Xbox will take care of that.

While the game will download to your harddrive rather than be played off the disc, you'll still need the disc in every time you play it. (unless you want to buy it from the store which you can do here https://www.microsoft.com/store/productId/C29HQ887KH4B )

I've heard that when you put the disc in, it copies it to the hard drive, but you need to have the disc in still to play the game.

In my defense, I used the quick reply box and couldn't be bothered to edit it.

No, I didn't read that post, I read the one prior to that.

Played some:

Portal: Bridge Constructor - and it’s pretty fun but clumsy on a controller. I’ve a feeling that playing it on PC would be about 5 times faster with a mouse and keys. After you’ve finished mucking around with the settings for a couple of hours. Anyway, I might come back to this cause I quite like it.

Steamworld Dig 2 - now this is more like it. It’s just super fun. Dig, collect, progress, die and repeat. My only complaint is that the jump is a bit floaty and imprecise but otherwise it’s more of the first game which was aces, so thus, thence and therefore this is also aces.

I just bought the Xbox 360 Fallout 3 GOTY. I shall update on whether Todd was full 'o shit when he bragged about the 4k version. Either way it'll be nice to visit the capital wasteland again. I wonder if I remember it all well like I used to?

At least my blood won't run cold again when I visit Andale. Caught me right out that did when I first found it.

Owwwwwwwwww.

Oh fucking great, Steamworld Dig 2 has a game breaking bug that makes it crash in Vector about 9/10ths into the game. You reach this area where you just run from androids and BLAMMO it crashes. I’ve done it 6 times and each time it’s fucked itself.

On a fucking Xbox. Jesus Christ, why has no one bloody fixed it. It’s not like it’s just come out.

I was about to award it the First Annual Sat Suma’s Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Excellence but now it go fuck itself. In the arse. With a baton wrapped in barbed wire and soaked in petrol.

If it's any consolation, I finished it on the Vita with no game breaking bugs.

Game Pass is really messing up your finished games to started games ratio.

Some nice guy online says if you stop running before the game crash and walk (running in this one section causes the crash apparently) and provided you’re lucky enough when getting constantly hit that you have enough energy to survive, the crash won’t happen.

And y’know what, he was right. Took a few attempts, mind, but I made it. Back on my bullshit, yay!

FO3 installed without incident. It allows you to use the dlc disc for booting. Graphics don't look much different but it's on a TV so yeah.

Had a bug (nooooooooo! In a granny voice) where I somehow managed to fall through the floor in the overseer's office and start back in the room where I lived (so I had to go through the entire vault again) but other than that no issues (he said, tentatively)

MOAR games wot dis playa plays:

Moonlighter:

During the day you play as a ... shopkeeper? You run a shop and basically just raise and lower prices on junk to find out how much cash, money & hoes you can fleece gullible suckers to part with.

By night, you turn into a dungeon crawling hero for the ages as you progress through randomly generated dungeons running drivebys on monsters foe they whips and chains while smacking bitches about the grill with the back of your sword for the trash in their pockets.

Then you get home and sell the stuff you’ve jacked and pass it off as your own.

The shopkeeping is simple but enjoyable so far and the dungeon crawling is similar to Zelda but looks sorta like Enter the Gungeon. Anyway, I kinda like this and might play it next.

Spent all day yesterday playing FO3. My longest gaming session since FO4.

First time I've ever ran the batteries in my controller flat. I can't remember where anything is. I never thought I'd forget but I guess playing FO4 made my memory switch to that. I actually had to look at the "you are here" sorta map in the metro as I got completely lost.

Which brings back an awful lot of joy. The enhanced graphics are ok. Not fantastic but they do at least make it look a little better than the original. As soon as I'm back from the psych today I'll get stuck in.

Had another dabble with DiRT Rally again tonight. Still lots of fun despite me having never come close to winning a stage. It did rather glitch out on me for a bit though, with my 60s mini ending up with a rather funky interior for a while.

Also, for those with Gold, you can buy Wonder Boy - The Dragon's Trap for £7.99 at the moment.
