  1. certain games not launching


    recently i downloaded AC Black Flag and have been playing it for several days. This morning i went to play Titanfall and it wouldnt launch, then i tried Dead rising 3 and it wouldnt launch either, Black Flag, Titanfall and Dead rising 3 are all downloads,
    as is Project spark which did launch. Will i have to redownload Titanfall and Dead rising 3? can anyone help?

    I did as you described above and was able to launch both games without any problems. I can't say for sure whether or not it's resolved since it doesn't always happen. I'll try launching both a few times throughout the day to check though. Hopefully it worked
    and I thank you very much for your suggestion!
