Digging into the API for the first time and had a question, because I seem to be hitting a brick wall here.

I'm trying to return all games on the Xbox One. More specifically, the game name, publisher(s), main image, and release date.

My URL looks like this, but I keep getting a 404 error.

Wasn't too impressed with Honeymoon's ending. I hate this current trend of abrupt and incomplete endings for horror films.

@blu3v3nom07: I'm using a bus-powered Seagate. This one http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00ILALU9G/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. Really weird that I'm experiencing these issues.

So I went into this film blind and absolutely loved it. It has shades of Drive and a soundtrack that's reminiscent of that and Hotline Miami. It's sort of a horror/comedy from the guys that made You're Next, and I'm surprised I haven't seen many people talking about it seen as it's just been released.

Here's a brief bit about the film:

A soldier introduces himself to the Peterson family, claiming to be a friend of their son who died in action. After the young man is welcomed into their home, a series of accidental deaths seem to be connected to his presence.

Did I mention the soundtrack is baller?

I've got a bus-powered external HDD connected to my Xbox One which is in Instant-On Mode. The problem I'm having is every time I boot the console, the HDD is not recognised and I have to unplug and replug the external HDD.

I thought there was something wrong here, so I called Xbox Support and the guy basically confirmed to me this is how it's supposed to work and I must replug my external HDD on every boot, which is ridiculous.

When I challenged how ridiculous this was, he went on a passionate tirade about how all the complaining last year (the 180) ruined the Xbox One and how everything had to be reworked at the last minute hence the reason is so "broken". Yeah, he actually used the word broken.

Anyways, I was wondering if anyone else uses an external HDD on the Xbox One and if they have to plug it back in every single time they boot the console up?

Thanks.

UPDATE: Looks like this fixed it.

@strife777: Haha, I would have played it on the PS4 if I had one. Got an XB1 and currently waiting for a real reason to pick up a PS4. The Order might be that reason.

@sunbrozak: I expect a graphical step down from the PC to PS3, but not that drastic of a difference. I haven't seen pixelated mess like that since the GBA. I've emailed Sony and asked for my money back. Will continue to play on the Mac.

So, I bought The Swapper a while back on Steam but never got around to playing it. I wanted to play it this evening, and ended up buying it on my PS3 (cause controller support). When I booted it up, I immediately was thrown off by the graphics, I remember Patrick playing it on a QL and was sure it looked way better than it did on my PS3. I took a pic of running on the PS3. It's so pixelated the character is blending into the wall.

I booted it up on my Mac to see if it looked the same, and lo and behold it looked 1000x better. Has anyone noticed graphical problems with the PS3 version?

@optix12: Yeah I guess it's the whole chatter on Twitter and the forums that I will miss the most. Oh well, I guess I'll be looking forward to an extended holiday when I'm back.
