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.

Where did you hear that, two posts previously?

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.

You can get Portal: Bridge Constructor for your phone.

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!
