Has anyone else been experiencing the Xbox One console and kinect lights flashing for a couple of minutes after shutting down lately? 
Anyone know what causes this? I've read that it means the system is updating, but I got the last system update a few days ago, and none of my games appear to be updating. I tried a hard reset and it shut down the first time after, but now it's doing the flashing again.

Anyone have any ideas?

+Budski GB​ No, I'm not.
The problem seems to have been resolved with another hard reset. Worked fine all week afterwards.

Is anyone else picking up Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires this week?
Dynasty Warriors has always been my gaming "guilty pleasure", and this version looks great, with loads of content. I just wish it was up on the Store for digital pre order.

This weeks adventure for my home group is going to feature a fight vs some skiing zombies.

I don't have a lot of time to put into prep. Does anyone have some simple yet fun mechanics ideas for a ski fight set piece encounter? I just need like one or two little things to make the fight feel unique.

Ended up going with simple rules in the 13th Age tradition.
Skill check dc20 to move, fail means no move. (Always "moving" downhill of course, but roll to move to engage, etc)
Can't remain engaged after an attack unless jump into same sled, another DC 20 skill check.

Was a pretty fun fight. I tossed in some Wraith Bats to add to the options/tactics.

Just got my printed copy of Book of the Wyrm in the mail. Just started reading it, but really impressed so far. Super useful for all my 20th Anniversary WoD games.

I know that Diablo 3 is old news now, but I had no idea that it had local cooperative play until taking a look at it last week. My wife and I are now having a blast playing through it together!
With so few same screen / local multiplayer games out these days, I just wanted to highly recommend it to anyone looking to get some family game time.

Is the AC of 27 for the Gnoll Shredder in 13 True Ways correct? It seems that it is just way out of the ballpark of anything else around it's level.

It's the ultimate blocker. Don't throw too many at your PCs. Offsetting it are the PD and MD each at 2 under, and 10% less hp. It rewards those who have non-AC attacks.

Battlefield fans, what is your take on Battlefield Hardline?

I haven't played any Battlefield games before, but I was thinking of giving this one a try. However, I've seen some negativity about it online recently. People saying it looks bad or should have been a mod/expansion.

Are you excited or do you think it looks bad?

Cool. I don't normally play online shooters, but I think I'm going to pick this one up for something different.
Thanks for the info +Tom G

Looking for a Crew to join for GTA Online, Xbox One.
I'm a casual player, looking for a more adult group. I mostly like Missions, but all the game modes interest me. Interested in trying Heists once that dlc drops.
I don't always use my mic, as my wife is usually in the same room.

Now that Eyes of the Stone Thief is available for Pre-Order, what's next on the horizon for official 13th age products?

Does Google Now take much longer to refresh with a pull down on lollipop for anyone else?
Also, Google Search is one of my number one battery drains now.

Quick question! (I'm away from my books right now)
Is Miss damage affected by Resistance? I would assume it is, because it would have rolled under the Resistance's requirement.

+Steven Warzeha​: i would say, that the miss damage has the same type, as the attack damage. The melee attacks don't have written on them, they deal weapon/slashing/piercing... but you still can get a X+ weapon resistance on a monster.
