Microsoft Exec: The Power of the Cloud Will Exceed Expectations That Can Be Delivered On Xbox One

“We as a company believe in the power of the cloud.”

When Microsoft announced the Xbox One back in 2013, it touted something extra that all console owners will receive. The power of the cloud that will make the console more powerful than it already is. As the name indicates, the Xbox One’s underlying architecture is used to communicate with a remote server that carries out complex computations such as in-game physics and destruction and sends the result back to the console. In short, the in-game effects are no longer confined to the console’s in built architecture.

Players were optimistic regarding what this technology could bring in for Xbox One but Microsoft had no practical demonstration other than a short demo that was released in 2014. But during last month’s Gamescom, Microsoft finally showcased Crackdown 3, a cloud based title offloads complex destruction simulation to a remote server resulting into effects which a modern, high-end PC will struggle to render.

GamingBolt spoke to Xbox boss of India, Anshu Mor and asked him about his thoughts on the cloud and how it can set new trends for multiplayer gaming.

“I think the cloud will play a phenomenal role as we go forward. We as a company believe in the power of the cloud,” Anshu said to GamingBolt. “Even if you look back, we have always maintained that there is this power that the box brings in which is huge value to the consumer and then there is the power of the cloud that will match or exceed the expectations that can be delivered on the box. Crackdown 3 is one of the early experiences of that which we are going to give you.”

But given that this feature is dependent on the quality of ISP infrastructure, will the service be inconsistent in countries that are outside UK and USA?

“It remains to be seen in all transparency. There are people who have decent bandwidth connections so I would imagine a 2 Mbps plus connection would still continue to work. You know, these things are connected to the ISP so I cannot comment on that. I don’t believe that the experiences will be compromised in the current set of consumers we have.”

Crackdown 3 comes out on the Xbox One in 2016. We will see how the cloud will make the game better in the coming months. Stay tuned for our full interview with Anshu Mor soon.

    The Crackdown 3 Beta will be the start of true next gen in gaming.

    • Tech junkie

      Can’t wait to give this a try. I’m with you this is where next gen gaming starts. Can you imagine the size potential of an open world game now.

      Unfortunately, if you post it they will come.

    • Bryan King

      But isn’t this just a way to stealth sell DRM…. I mean what do you own if you HAVE to be online? Are certain parts even on disc? Will it even sell on disc or will you need a subscription?

    • freekface

      So Sony’s PS Now is Stealth DRM as is every game you buy on PSN, thanks for letting us know.

    • Bryan King

      PSNow is a rental service… I don’t expect rental games to be available to me all the time. My questions are valid…. will people need to pay a sub for using so many servers to compute? It looks likely….
      I also find it a bit rich that they are talking about destructibility and all this without addressing the elephant in the room; games being sub full HD standard and other performance gaps in EVERY game. Can the cloud address these problems or is it just a one trick pony? (Forgive the reverse pun)

    • lindin loubeau

      No you won’t have to be always online to play the game. It has a single player mode which is offline. And a multiplayer mode (which is online of course) that utilizes the “cloud” ( an online feature).
      So no you don’t have to be online to play the game, but if you want to play multiplayer than obviously you’re gonna have to connect to the internet. From what I’ve read so far a minimum of 2Mbs is needed for the server calculations. And latency shouldn’t be an issue since the server is only handling the calculations and physics, which is a huge task while the console does the rendering. I think most people on the internet are capable of this. Not 100% sure though.
      I’m also pretty certain I read that the game will be 60fps and 1080p.
      Btw saying every game is sub fullHD and has performance issues? not even true. Come on now.

    • Bryan King

      It was a generalization on my part but it is a widely held perception by most lay-people. So then there will be no destruction on the single player element? I don’t understand how they can opt in and out on it without some compromises….
      Also I am very sceptical of MS, they could have a high end PC in the very next room. What’s to stop them… I cant see how they have tested this for most conditions that aren’t optimum.

    • Nick

      its a rental, not even the same ballpark

    • Nick

      I feel you man, it will tell us a lot once we know how the game is once it is out, if its online always and if it can or cannot function with a disk alone. This could be a very good way for them t disguise DRM. I’m not anti cloud or anything, I think it could be great as long as the bandwith requirements aren’t outrageous.

    • Tech junkie

      Unhook your internet connection and load Destiny. Do you feel like Destiny is disguised DRM? It’s Sony’s biggest game.

      The difference is from what I’ve read Crackdown will function without an internet connection. A less CPU intensive campaign is on the disc.

    • Rubix99

      What do you mean Destiny is “Sony’s biggest game”?
      It is a multi platform and cross gen game. Sony don’t own it.

    • Tech junkie

      Sony themselves said they treat it like a first party game.

    • Rubix99

      Not sure why they would say that when it ain’t a first party game. Neither is it the best selling game on PS4.

      Grand Theft Auto V is number 1 on PS4.

    • Tech junkie

      Marketing

    • bardock5151

      Deceptive marketing.

    • Tech junkie

      Sony would never deceive or twist marketing. I mean common it’s still 1080p even if its frame rate is in the teens. 1080p is the marketing number that counts.

      Just like Microsoft never drops half the vertical lines to call it 1080p,
      The whole marketing war is bad for gaming in general. Half of it is stuff people don’t even understand, but 1080p is this game changing buzzword.

      Meanwhile the people that must have 1080p are playing the game on some POS 42″ TV that displays 720p half the time at 10 feet away where you can’t tell the difference between 720p and 1080p let alone 900 and 1080.

      I just want a smooth game with good visuals, Resolution above 720p is a non issue for most console gamers. It’s barely an issue for me and I game 9 feet form a 65″ TV, way closer than an average viewing distance.

    • kreator

      Yes they did! lol

    • Tech junkie

      Have you played Destiny? try unhooking your internet connection and see how far you get.
      They stated Crackdown 3 will have on disc content, but not to this level simply because of the computing required

      Your subscription is Xbox Live.

    • Bryan King

      As an accountant I can’t see the basic subscription for live covering the overheads involved in having possibly several servers at your disposal for tens of hours a month. I have over 600 hours put into Destiny…. unhooking your internet worked very well for the Crota encounter… for a while.
      That statement about “on disc content” makes me feel very uneasy about the whole thing.
      There is another article about an interview with an ex xbox exec called Bach, saying the next gen would be “disc-less”, Microsoft keep pushing their objectives….DRM, No physical ownership, more monitoring and data gathering…. It is not looking good.

    • Tech junkie

      Ok so you are comparing cheating on a game to being online, you can’t get to Crota without being online. That is about the worst rebuttal I’ve ever heard against online only.

      With over 50 games and not one single one a physical copy I’m ok with discs going away. I can’t believe it took this long for me to get a game console where I didn’t have to have the stupid disc in the drive to play it. Every game I buy for consoles from now on will be digital.
      I’m happy to see the game developers and producers get my money over gamestop and their mass profiting over used games they had absolutely nothing to do with the production of.

      Since you are hung up on Microsoft pushing their objectives, did you know a huge division of Sony is producing raw physical media. Did you think just maybe they have their best interests in mind keeping the drive, not the consumers.

      To touch on cost, yes the price of your online subscription will likely go up as these games get more popular, maybe even another tier of pay wall but the value is there. It will be a choice you as a consumer will have to make.

      Unless you are a cord cutter you probably pay $50 or $100 a month for just cable, a lot of which you can get in better quality picture and sound with a coat hanger for free than your cable provider supplies you at a premium price.

      We live in a world of monthly payments and subscriptions.
      A world I don’t choose to partake in BTW, I pay house and car insurance yearly, no monthly payment. I only pay cash for vehicles, no payments. I don’t buy monthly cell phone insurance. I buy my phones flat out and negotiate for better rates on my plan, I pay for subscription services yearly not monthly etc, etc.
      I keep every dollar in my pocket I can.
      It’s up to the consumer to decide what they want. If you don’t like it don’t buy it. If enough other people feel the same way as you. Somebody will sell something you want. If there is a market for it somebody will sell. In this world if there isn’t a market for it, someone will make the market and sell it.

      Bottom line this might not align with your personal point of view, but as far as game quality and experience goes, this is huge.

    • Sea-HAWK fan

      have you? destiny is multi console just gaming companies know with the market share to “market on sony”. tr didnt and watch the flop until multi release

    • Tech junkie

      Have I played Destiny? Yes. I currently have 3 level 34 characters.

      What does that have anything to do with online requirement?

      I’m pretty sure anyone not living under a rock knows it’s a multi console.

      Not really understanding your post.

      Company’s don’t market games to Sony. Sony pays them to market the games to customers so they buy it for Playstation.

      Still not wrapping my head around what this has to do with online requirement.

    • archfiendx

      So, instead you replaced it with your Xbox fanboy stink? Go figure.

    • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

      In MP only though right, when does “true next gen” come to single player on xbox one?

  • sgt_hammertime

    when is pre-order open?

    • Bryan King

      2017

    • freekface

      Microsoft haven’t announced the Pre Order date BUT the game Beta will be available to play Summer 2016.

    • Bryan King

      2018

  • Bryan King

    2016? Is anyone seriously expecting this game to launch next year?

    • XbotMK1

      Greatness still awaits in the Xbox camp.

    • freekface

      Games still await in the Sony Indie station camp.

  • andy

    So Xbone games will be pushing higher than the 1080p resolution that people are expecting the Cloud to be able to help out with?

    • doplerradar

      They never said that.

    • Tech junkie

      Sony has done a really good job extracting visuals and laying out good hardware for this gen.

      The fact that you can’t wrap your head around the fact that visuals is only a small part of gaming and this is huge for gaming in general tells me you don’t get it and won’t get it.

    • XbotMK1

      That is one of the very few comments that you made with your fake dupe account that I can agree with.

    • Tech junkie

      Just cause you’re an ignorant fan boy doesn’t mean everyone is. Fake account? What are you talking about you delusional attention w**re?

    • freekface

      You talk about fake accounts and you Upvote comments with your “Kinect” user name amongst others on the Sony favoured posts, you are a joke.

    • JerkDaNERD7

      Not about resolution, like no one ever stated except for Playstation fanboys. Like crackdown 3, physics? AI?? Massive world??? So many applications that pushes gaming for everyone beyond expectations.

    • freekface

      More Ghost upvotes by the usual Sony fanboys using his $10 Upvote bot.

  • Bryan King

    Wait for Microsofts fabled CLOUD? Or just buy a PS4 that can do it all already…. with way better features like game sharing, Spotify free music, a new dlna system and streaming on youtube and twitch and uplay. Not to mention being way faster and loading new games in seconds unlike the hours it takes on X1….

    • freekface

      “The PS4 can do it already”
      HA HA funniest thing I have ever read it can’t even do full 60FPS, it’s CPU is a useless bottleneck.

    • Bryan King

      The thing that is really funny is that it is the exact same cpu as the X1 except MS overclocked theirs by a whole 33 mhz just to try and squeeze something more out of it. Really desperate stuff.

    • freekface

      Forza 6 reviews say you are WRONG, 1080p and LOCKED 60FPS, only the Xbox One can do this the PS4 can’t.

    • Bryan King

      Course it can especially when the time of day is static and the weather is baked in and only on some tracks…. thats not really innovative. Not even volumetric clouds… tut tut.

    • freekface

      Time of day is pointless in anything but a fully blown dedicated 24 hour endurance race game.
      Having night day cycles are not realistic in any way when you play a game for two hours and it goes through a load of day and night sequences in that time, that’s just stupid.

      Why are you not mentioning it has more cars, background animations etc. than any other race game and the reviews say it’s the best looking racer out there.

      Are you a little jealous it’s not available for your console, there there never mind maybe one day the PS4 will also be able to do 1080p and a locked 60FPS as only the Xbox One can do but seeing as not even their few exclusive’s can do it I wouldn’t hold your breath.

    • Bryan King

      It is not the best looking racer by a long long way…. I had a word with luke reilly the reviewer of forza at ign.
      https://mobile.twitter.com/MrLukeReilly/status/642103360846344194?p=v
      There is the link and him saying that DC is the bleeding edge of graphics in racing. Time of day if done well does affect the way you drive and the impression of the track. DC has loads of background animations including fireworks, sprinklers and fully 3d audience of selectable sizes.

      I had a 360, i have played forza to death. There is nothing exciting or new for me there. It is not the future, it is the past. To say xbox 1 can do 1080 at 60 fps and ps4 cant is ridiculous…. There is a huge portfolio of games and devs to prove you wrong and it is not a simple thing as u suggest either. It is always a balancing act of assets, res, fps and ai. DC is the best looking but at 30 fps get over it.

    • freekface

      Ha Ha your in some one trying to compare the on rails Driveclub with Forza 6 now that is hilarious. Please just stop.

      Ok so name ONE exclusive game on the PS4 that can do 1080P and a LOCKED 60FPS come on just one.

      You seem to have a problem with exclusives that are not for your electronic game toy, do you argue about things like this in real life ?.

    • Bryan King

      Congratulations, Forza 6 releases tomorrow and it has just now hit number 20 on amazon hourly. If they were such great games (the best racers according to you) surely they would sell better. But no… just another overhyped nothing from MS. Oh and the Bullshots… pathetic.

    • freekface

      I bet you got all exited when you saw that BUT unfortunately for you you are WRONG yet again.

      Seems like you know NOTHING whatsoever about Xbox One, Forza 6 Ultimate edition was released DIGITALLY on September the 1st, the standard/deluxe editions digital and hardcopy are released tomorrow and both standard editions will release on Friday in Europe etc.

      You can no longer go on sales of just hardcopy (at least on Xbox One) those days are over, there are huge advantages to buying digital on Xbox One that are NOT there for PS4.

      On Xbox One you can gameshare instantly with anyone anywhere , just one of you buys the game but you BOTH get a copy so all games are half price or Free if the other person wants to just buy it himself.

      When you gameshare you only need one Xbox Live subscription as that is also shared.

      If one of you subscribes to EA ACESS then you both get it as that is also shared.

      When you put your digital games and DLC onto USB 3 hard drive you can take JUST the hard drive to ANY Xbox One anywhere, sign in and play those games instantly without having to download a thing whilst your Xbox sits safety at home.

      These are some of the things that have thankfully stayed from the originally digital Xbox One online plan and also why you haven’t see the cloud power until now as MS had to restructure everything.

      So you see there are obviously going to be huge amounts of people who go digital on Xbox One and there will have to be a digital chart for any kind of accuracy.

    • kreator

      Do what already? Cloud compute like M$, actual first party GAMES in 1080p 60FPS! What are you saying?

    • Bryan King

      1080p… just like Halo 5 will be! HA! Doubt it….
      Ryse? No Titanfall… No
      Running out of games here… Are there any?
      Cloud compute, Hololens, Azure; All great buzzwords and marketing that mean little in practice.

    • Shura

      That 900p game called Ryse won the Siggraph award for best real-time graphics because 1080p is nothing but a number that you wouldn’t care about if I use my PC specs to continue this discussion.

    • Bryan King

      Rubbish game wins award… company left to die by MS, saved by Amazon. Xbox goons triumphant!

  • Bryan King

    Sales speak for themselves…Xbox One is a turd and Microsoft got caught trying to exploit gamers.

    • freekface

      This news has really upset you hasn’t it, never mind perhaps Sony will give you some free Lego with PS4 games to make up for it.

    • Bryan King

      At least it would be tangible

    • Sea-HAWK fan

      no its you lame xbox 1 percenters trying to find any reason to justify going with xbox and there horrible anti consumer approaches that made ps4 dominate like no other console in history of man kind

    • freekface

      Why has “XbotMK1” upvoted you using his “Kinect” multi name ?.

      You Sony fanboys are weird.

    • Tech junkie

      Sales mean nothing when it comes to a better product. Sales mean you read the box and are susceptible to marketing BS.

      Not saying by any means that Sony did not make an excellent piece of hardware. Probably the best performing console to date depending if you consider the Alpha a console. I’m not say that a lot of the people that bought the PS4 fell for marketing, they did so cause they wanted the best hardware. I am saying there are a lot of lemmings out there that have no idea why they bought what they bought other than the TV said it was the place to game.

      I am saying you are salty because much like Xbox can’t touch Sony’s visual fidelity, Sony can not touch this computing power and will not have a game that can do what this game can do this gen.

      This is truly the start of next gen gaming. It will likely be 3 more years before we start seeing games really lean into the power of dedicated servers. It is the future, no question. The best RPGs will be Massive MMO RPGs taking place in open worlds so big we can’t even wrap our heads around at this point because it hasn’t been done yet.

    Here’s a thought Microsoft, why didn’t you just make the Xbone powerful enough by itself from the getgo? Anyone falling for this crap is just an idiot. Just like dx12 being fully utilized on xbone…not going to happen as there isnt a PC gfx card on the market today that fully supports dx12, what makes you think the xbone with an old ATI mash has a chance?

    • kreator

      You sound mad, why?

    • Amvidia

      You got to remember. Xbox division was under don mattrick before phil spencer came in. He said they purposely didn’t go for high end graphics this generation and wanted a balanced machine. I’m glad they didn’t to be honest. Because they went cheap route and can get into 4K and beyond the next generation. With high end GPUs of the past this generation would have easily lasted over 10 years.

  • Triton

    I wonder why gaming media always talks down on
    ISP infrastructures in countries that are outside UK and USA…
    UK/USA have generally a very poor infrastructure outside the big cities.
    At least thats what users tell me.
    The Scandinavian countries has the best ISP infrastructures in the world with broadband offered to all and even the cheaper apartments has at least 60Mbit VDSL or 1Gbit fiber connections or even faster available if they want to.

  • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

    Well if a Microsoft Exec says it it must be true cause those guys never lie, oh wait.

      Ahh now I wondered when “Revolver Ocelot” AKA “Xrat” etc. Would appear, as soon as I saw the upvotes for any negative about MS or the Xbox I knew it would be you.

    • XbotMK1

      This cloud nonsense is just more marketing lies by Microsoft. Notice how Crackdown 3 has low graphical quality. Cloud doesn’t work the way fanboys think it does or the way Microsoft wants you to believe it does.

      Having a bunch of weak CPUs in the cloud doesn’t provide 20 times the power of an Xbox One or even a low end PC. Microsoft is simply trying to get games to rely on their servers so they can charge for online in every game. This cloud nonsense is a giant joke.

    • Edonus

      Go get a degree and comeback later. You have no idea what the cloud actually is or what can actually do.
      You sound like a stupid pony spreading ignorance. Get back in the barn an stop stinking up the place.

    • JerkDaNERD7

      yet you’re still here eating crow. Man you’re spineless. xD

    • Jon

      In a way you are correct.

      However, the cloud has been part implemented in at least two microsoft exclusive games since launch.

      In FM5 and FH2, the cloud was used to process “drivatars”, therefore replicating how actual users drive through tracking their activity in the game and forming an algorithm, thanks to the cloud.

      In Titanfall, the cloud formed the AI for the npc grunts, who would hone in on the player position, as well as battle opposing npc.

      The reality is solely the first game to state that the cloud is a major feature, and this is what it does.

    • Edonus

      I care!

      Something that shows me real improvements and moving forward in gaming that doesn’t require Digital Foundry and a magnifying glass.

      It wont be for SP because its not something that fits the mode….. its a decision not a limitation. Did you think you was droppin some knowledge?

      Let me hurt your feelins….. Ps4 is too weak to do this. Know matter what you quote like love or have been told they cant because they don’t have the hardware software or infrastructure.
      But don’t worry the corrupt gaming media will make all the weak minded consumers think they struck gold……..I sit in my plush $1500 chair, puffing a $30 cigar, sipping on a $100 whiskey knowing….. “I am better than them because I know better”.

    • You care only because you probably own an XB1 man. I mean, seriously… the “power of the cloud” being used to make buildings crumble realistically and without hardware lag and blahhhhh. This is just tech that is gonna be used to sell the game because tbh, game devs still haven’t found a very good use for it where it REALLY, TRULY makes a game better and stand out among the rest (and also, the only reason I think that MS is even investing time/money into Crackdown 3 is because they made a big deal about “the power of the cloud” and used it as a REASON as to why the XB1 > PS4. So far, no game with help from the cloud has stood alone as being some “awesome game” that ONLY the XB1 could achieve and IMO, it’s gonna be a LONG time before MS/XB1 does make a game using the cloud in a great way where peeps think that it is actually a factor when purchasing a new console or game)!

      Crackdown 3 is not gonna get a 10/10 (or any high rating) because of the “super-realistic destructibility,” it’ll get a good score for having other good features, great gameplay, a great story or w/e else (if it gets a good score at all- lol).

    • Edonus

      All you are doing is being dismissive, it would be “OH you’ll give me a million dollars….LOL hahah blahh. I cant even buy a private airplane with that chump change” You see? Its easy to be dismissive and sound quite stupid in the process.
      You make buildings crumbling realistically sound like its a step backward or like we had this for going on 10 years now. If you cant get excited for this type of tech then (listen very carefully) there is something WRONG with you. Really Wrong…. like, needs medication and professional help Wrong.
      Sure I have an X1, and the cloud is a reason to buy a X1 over a Ps4, but that’s not to say there isn’t reasons to buy a ps4 over an X1. There are plenty of reasons either way, for me its was games, features, and Xbox live as the big ones. If I cared about having a better resolution sometimes I would have got a Ps4. I am planning on getting a Ps4 when project Morpheus comes out and only if they support it the way I want to see it supported.
      Cloud computing has been in a bunch of awesome games already, Titanfall, all the X1 Forza games, Sunset Overdrive, soon Halo 5, and Crackdown 3. The thing isn’t devs not having good uses for it, the thing is this is real new technology. Its an entire different way of looking at what can be done with games. There is no blueprint for MS to work from, they are blazing the trail. Its like learning to walk…. first you crawl, then you stand, then you walk till one day you can run and ride skateboard and ollies, flipkicks and pole grinds. I could explain to you how the cloud has been used in awesome ways already in these games but it would take too long and you would just be dismissive about it anyway.
      As for what the game score…. I don’t give a f%$k. It can get a 1 for all I care I am still getting it day one. I judge things for myself. I don’t need IGNs bias agenda running reviews or Game-snot telling how they docked 5point because they couldn’t find the pause button. A metacritic score has never affected my enjoyment of a game.

    • Tech junkie

      You are looking at this one game. I for one don’t even think it’s going to be that great of a game.

      The part you are missing is the potential. How the tech can be applied. I’m not even referring to the engine. But just how big games can get. If you understood what it takes to process this level of destruction that is not pre-baked you’d see the potential for MMO’s and open world RPGs etc.

      Yes, AI? …*Mind Blown*

    • I just think it’s gonna take some more time for MS and game devs, in general, to figure out useful ways of using the cloud where it actually matters and not in ways like “we can have super-realistic destruction of buildings without hardware lag.”

    • Tech junkie

      Big Whoop was your response, Yes it’ll probably be 3 years before we see a game that is more than just a demo of what it can do. Up till now the cloud has basically only been used to process AI and host games instead of p2p connections. Despite Forza having some of the best AI of any racer, and Titanfall having a rock solid online experience, better than any p2p connection. It’s hasn’t been that ground breaking.
      This is ground breaking. You might not like the game, but I can’t think of a single game without pre-baked destruction at this level.
      This is a huge step in the evolution of gaming. This will go down in history as when games changed. Nothing to this scale has been accomplished before and it happened on console before PC, which is rare. Most gaming evolution starts on PC

      You don’t have to like the game, you don’t have to like Xbox and you don’t have to like Microsoft to realize this is the future of AAA gaming.

      Toss some salt on that crow.

    • Keep this comment saved & come back when the game is released and we will see if “destructible environments” make this game “better.” I seriously doubt they will; all they’ll do is make the game “seem cooler” because it’s using a new type of tech.

    • JerkDaNERD7

      I think it’s going to be really fun. Last time I checked you’ll have to earn your upgrades to even cause any havoc. So ton of competition obviously.

    • Shura

      Yeah, but since something like this can be done, I fail to see a
      problem. It’s not like something extra would hinder what a game could
      be. Maybe the single player will be more focused on story and less about
      destruction and by your comment I take it you would prefer this.

      You obviously care because you needed to post Something negative, does this news bother you because it won’t be for you chosen console ?.

      Notice your Upvotes, mostly fake courtesy of XbotMK1.

    Is this truth?… OMG! I hope MS give a really good reason to turn back again! Just Crackdown isn’t enough to force everyone to agree with that absurd DRM politics!!!

    • Sea-HAWK fan

      the original crackdown was a complete boring floating turd

    • XbotMK1

      I must agree there.

    • freekface

      Of course You do your an obsessive Sony fanboy.

    • JerkDaNERD7

      Yes agree, they is rarely any developer out there tha’ts even concerned with this tech. I’d say Microsoft needs to get new studios on this to make a high graphics MOBA. That’ll be awesome.

  • Sea-HAWK fan

    the original crackdown was a complete boring floating turd. now it will be a floating turd with dirty yellow pee around it

  • omarcominyo

    Unless I see it actually running AND making a huge difference in a single player game I like, it’s all a bit ‘Meh’ to me!
