Anyone know how CS: GO is on the consoles?


Bad.

Stick to the PC version.

It's kind of disappointing when you buy a season pass for Halo 4 day 1, but then they discount it on the day after the last piece of it comes out.


The lesson is: it always pays to wait. Everyone should be aware of this by now, especially if you're on this site.

Do you avoid buying games for older systems bc there's no point without achievement tracking?


Can't speak for him, but I always check the achievement lists and guides before buying a game. Achievement stats and aiming for completion is a big part of what has made gaming this generation fun for me (and I'm not interested in debating why or whether this a good/bad thing in this thread). When I was looking into the games on sale today and saw an achievement for CS:GO that started with "Play 5,000 matches," my response was "Nope, no way" and closing that tab.

I 2nd this but then Bioshock Infinite did something tricky (i.e. smart) and offered some extras for the game right away with their season pass so I bit on it. Otherwise, I am done with the whole season pass thing.

Did they? Just because the extras say "Day one" means they are a limited time offer. Nothing in the description suggests that freebie will disappear

You get a set of 4 pieces of Gear that are more powerful than the similar versions you can find in the game, you get your pistol and machine gun golden skinned and they start with a 33% damage boost, where normally the boosts you can buy are 25%, and you get 5 infusion bottles to increase your health, shield, or salt (mana) pool and are the only way to increase all 3 pools to their max amount as there's only 25 in the main game and each attribute can be boosted 10 times.

Also it allows you to miss up to 5 of the Infusion bottles in the main game and still get the achievement for getting all 25 infusion bottles.

You have to buy the pass before you start the game as you get the bonuses in a bar you arrive in within the first hour of gameplay and those bonuses (minus the guns) only appear in that room and once you leave the room you can't go back. They are available in every playthrough you do of the game, which is a big help for playing it on any combination of Hard or 1999 mode.

$7.50 (600 MSP) on HU market. From what I've seen its region free


Yeah but I think he's saying having it on disk with all of the Halo 3 maps on disc 2 is worth the extra money.

Anyone know when the MSRP of Amalur on 360 is going to drop? Doesn't affect me as I have the disk but in the last month EA has lowered the MSRP on PSN from $40 to $30 and now $20 this week while the 360 version stays at $40.

Also used copies at GS reflect this as used 360 copies still go for $39.99.

As I said in the other thread, it's $29.99 on Xbox Live since it dropped a few weeks ago:

It'll drop soon to match PSN anyway.

5000 msp on regular priced content? I hope it was all DLC or it's no wonder you can't find a sale priced game to buy...


1600 - Bioshock Infinite season Pass
1600 - GOW Judgment Season Pass
1600 - GOW Judgment Season Pass
800 - Dead Space 3 Awakened DLC

I also got a armor skin for gears for 320 MSP since I have a huge stockpile from tons of sales plus Bing points. So about 5920 MSP on regular priced stuff. Yep. When I enjoy something I buy it. Im not going to wait two years for a sale to save 50% at the very best. By that time its not even fun to play with some multiplayer game content. I like to jump in day one for the games I love. ;)

Forgot I got a few sales as well
800 - Dragonborn
800 - RE: ORC DLC

Still have plenty of MSP left. I generally stay away from arcades though (I still do own about 150). I would rather have DLC to retail games.

MSUHitman covered what they were but I should have clarified what I meant by right away. I only meant that buying the Season Pass gave you some digital content for the game right away but not that the content was time sensitive. I am sure if you are waiting to play Infinite and the SP goes on sale you will still get those items at that time.

I was only saying it was smart to provide some content with the pass on the day you buy it instead of just having to wait for the DLC.

Side note: The season pass for Infinite only promises all 3 DLCs will be released by March 2014 so I would guess a sale might happen before all of it is released.

Thank you so much for this information. I don't too don't mind dropping the money on season passes if it's for a great game or a game ima play the shit out of. Ex. BO 2. Yeah, i paid $50 mainly for zombies, but I get TONS of hours of gameplay from that alone. I mean come on, haven't you guys seen the trailer for Mob of The Dead??? Sick!!

I was wondering if we would get another Call of the Dead-esque DLC. Guess I was right.

So next DLC should be Clinton, Bush, Obama and Bin Laden, right?

You get 1000/1000 for simply beating Enchanted Arms. It's not a bad game either.


Sigh. I found Enchanted Arms to be one of the most boring gaming experiences I've ever had. It's a very very very linear JRPG. And just moving was tedious. I hate when I have to press a button to climb a ladder then walk down a hall and then press another button to descend another ladder. The story just never grabbed me either. Then again I'm not huge on JRPGs so maybe it just wasn't for me (was an impulse buy for $3 at Eb Games years ago). Completing it is way down on the list of my backlog. If you're looking for a 1000/1000 experience there are much better places to have it that at least don't suck up too much of your time. Or do yourself a favour and play a really good game without worrying about achievements.

I genuinely recommend I Am Alive. I thought that game had a lot of interesting aspects, and AAA level sound design that gave it a really creepy atmosphere in a lot of places.

It was actually one of my favorite games last year, I would say if anyone was 'interested' than 480 is the right price.

Leaked footage of Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is online. Looks pretty good. Check it out before Ubisoft has it removed. Apparently some hackers got into the uplay servers and figured out how to download all of the Ubisoft games for free. Story here: http://www.ign.com/a...on?utm_campaign
