Forza Motorsport 7 might've been an impressive-looking showcase title for Xbox One X at launch, but I get the feeling that plenty of folks would just as well stick with 2016's Forza Horizon 3 if given the choice. Today, the game has added native 4K support for Xbox One X players in a free update.
Along with 4K, there are "a number of graphical improvements to the game, such as increased shadow resolution, improved visual effects, and increased LOD and draw distances," as detailed on the Xbox Wire and explored more in-depth in this Digital Foundry analysis. And there's still HDR support.
Perhaps best of all, the update doesn't bloat the file size too much. It's around 670 MB.
Former Team Meat alumni Ed McMillen has made a obscure comment that may reference the development of more DLC for his creepy 2011 video game The Binding of Isaac.
The grim-but-gripping roguelike shooter is a gift that keeps on giving, maintaining a steady flow of sales, and retaining relevance, some seven years after its original launch on PC. The has been achieved through the game's 2014 reinvention as The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, multiple ports to nearly all platforms, and a dedicated, passionate fanbase.
McMillen had previously gone on record as stating that there would be no more content for the apocalyptic dungeon crawler but, in a recent online Q&A, after saying there were currently no plans for a sequel, took part in this suspiciously obscure exchange:
Q. "Is this really the end of Isaac? No more DLC?"
A. "I did say many times this was going to be the last Isaac DLC... and at the time I strongly believed it. but there seems to be something pretty cool on the horizon, it's creeping up slowly... it's familiar but a bit different and it's being held up by a group of people… when I squint I think I can make out a… oh sorry I gotta go, there is someone watching me in my space ship."
A confirmation of anything? Of course not, but it is at least enough to give some form of hope for any fan who is wishing for Isaac's suffering to continue. As to what this new content may be, if indeed it is anything at all, I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

The Windjammers spiritual successor, Disc Jam, will be hitting the Nintendo Switch on February 8, 2018 for $14.99. If you like the look of the game, you can pre-order the title from the eShop right now! In a show of decency for storage solutions, the game will only occupy 1.1 GB on your console; fancy that!
Disc Jam also has online multiplayer, as well as local multiplayer for four players. The unique features of the Switch should make for some intense impromptu battles while waiting for food...or drinking...or whatever people do in public.
DICE is slicing off a piece of Battlefield 1's They Shall Not Pass DLC and setting it free. Beginning January 16, everyone will be able to play the once-premium nighttime map Prise de Tahure.
There's also a separate "Gallipoli Trial" running from Tuesday, January 16 to Monday, January 22 that provides Battlefield 1 players with access to a portion of the Turning Tides expansion and other DLC maps including those found in They Shall Not Pass and In the Name of the Tsar.
Basically, it's a way to get people reinvested in time for this month's new Turning Tides content: the Heligoland Bight and Zeebrugge maps, the British Empire Royal Marines, and the C-Class Airship.
I've been wanting to get back into Battlefield 1 to check out some of these maps but that's going to mean redownloading the not-exactly-small game which, in turn, will mean clearing out space on my PS4 and also making sure I don't slip past my data cap for the month. That's modern gaming for ya.
The Road Ahead For Battlefield 1 [Battlefield]

One of the primary challenges in porting a mouse and keyboard shooter over to consoles is finding a way to competently adapt the experience for controllers. In bringing PUBG to Xbox One, developer PUBG Corp opted to keep all features in the game at the cost of having a bloated controller scheme. Nearly every button has at least two features mapped to it, and it can feel convoluted at times.
In PUBG's fifth Xbox update, there's an alternate controller layout that has some subtle but important changes. The Type B preset allows users to aim through their sights by holding the left trigger. It's an important tweak in that it's a more normal action for players who are accustomed to other shooters. (The original preset zooms in by tapping the left trigger and then out by tapping it again.) Also added to Type B is the ability to use third-person aiming by holding left bumper.
There's not much else in this patch that changes anything too significantly. Pistols are grouped with melee weapons now, so players don't have to cycle through them while switching their big boy guns. Other than that, it's a constant emphasis on improving optimization and getting it to run at a more stable framerate.
Here are the full patch notes for PUBG on Xbox's fifth Preview update:
Another day, another retailer leak. This time it's Ubisoft's turn with rumors circulating that South Park: The Fractured but Whole might be getting a Nintendo Switch port.
Australian retailer Sanity posted a placeholder listing for South Park on Switch under its "coming soon" section along with a March 13 release date. All the typical retailer leak precautions are in play: It could be a mistake, the info could be wrong, and any and all details are subject to change. But these kind of things have a decent track record in recent years, so there's that too.
South Park on the go is an intriguing proposition, and Ubisoft hasn't been especially shy about supporting the Switch since its debut. There's Mario + Rabbids, some Just Dance titles, and a Rayman re-release. However, we are still waiting on that Steep port that supposedly isn't dead but could very well be dead. If this South Park thing comes to fruition, it might beat Steep to store shelves.
Is it possible that suspicious activity from just one person could have caused a 566% surge in the price of bitcoin? Well, according to a new study published in the Journal of Monetary Economics, the answer to that question is a resounding "yes."
Jan.15 -- India will break up its debt-burdened flag carrier into four separate companies and offer to sell at least 51 percent in each of them as part of a disinvestment proposed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Bloomberg's Kyunghee Park reports on "Bloomberg Daybreak Asia."
After a lot of crazy things happening all in a relatively short span of time, it seems like life is finally starting to settle down, with efforts to smooth tensions between Cybertron and Earth being foremost in Optimus Prime's mind. I'm sure nothing could possibly turn up to get in the way of that! "The Falling, Chapter 1: Surfeit of Primes" written by John Barber, art by Kei Zama, colors by Josh Burcham.

Street Fighter V had a major identity crisis at launch. Capcom wanted to get it out quick so they could make the call for EVO 2016, and it broke records. A certain kind of record though, as the actual sales figures limped across internal targets over time. Even worse, the image of the game was hamstrung long term.
There was one request, a demand even, that reverberated throughout the general populace -- "wake me up when they add an arcade mode." Month after month, apology after apology, it never came. We got a story mode that no one asked for, sure! But no arcade mode.
Now in the form of an ultimate apology, the Arcade Edition is here.
