#14041582 XBL Deals - 2018

Wow guys. Great community here. Truth be told this may be my last give away for awhile once the money goes. My wife is a great person and a sugar mommy (she hates me calling her that) has provided me with a lot of money over the years. I've always been a CAG so I'm not to spend much even when I had the money, but this one is going to the community. You guys have been for me here for years... I am going to miss buying everything on sale and not touching it. So happy for Gamepass and XBox GWG.

 

I've tried to mention marriage counseling. Four years ago I had my chance and basically walked out of it after one session. I've fucked up a lot over the years. So many regrets. I love her, very, very, much. But the ultimate test is to let the person you love go and It's the hardest. It fucking hurts man.

 

Thank you community.

 

I probably shouldn't say anything - but a common cognitive trap people fall into is 'just-world belief' - this belief most of us (all?) pick up as kids that the world works in a linear way.  If I do something good, I get something good.  If I do something bad, I get something bad.  Think Christmas, religion, discipline, school/studying, etc.  Conversely, if I get something bad, I must've done something bad.  You mentioned having regrets, which is why I'm mentioning this.  You might've done 'bad' things (we'll save the good vs. bad thing for another time), but that doesn't "control" good or bad outcomes.  It may have influenced things, certainly, but influence is not control.  I guess my point is, we do things in the moment that are based on our best guess, best interests, etc.  Later on, with hindsight, we second-guess ourselves.  Even if you had done everything perfect, everything exactly right, you could still be in this exact situation.  Because being perfect, being good, it doesn't make (or control) people loving with - or staying with - you.  Conversely, being "bad" doesn't mean they will leave you.  Life is very complex.  Try not to draw straight lines.

I think this is the first time the Sniper Elite III DLCs have been on sale outside of buying the Ultimate Edition.  And I don't believe the 'Hunt the Grey Wolf' - the pre-order 'assassinate Hitler' mission was part of that bundle and it's also on sale by itself.

I haven't shopped at GameStop in years but my bro wanted me to try to get some E3 Exclusive Master Chief Camo Pop Vinyl toy thing.  He sent me a link and it gave me an option to try to see if stores have it to hold me fore.  I select a store and requested one for hold.  Sure enough I get the Hold Confirmation email.  So I went there when they opened, I was the second person there, no one was there just me the other person and one employee.  I told the employee what I was there for and she just told me they didn't have any or they were for preorders.  Anyone else tried to get this and somehow preordered?  I wasn't sure if it was available to preorder or not.  I just emailed GameStop and told them my experience lol. 

Yes, the three E3 Gamestop Exclusive Funko POPs were released this morning - some stores (mine) only received two of each (Gold King Dice from Cuphead, Active Camo Master Chief, and 8 Bit Black Hole Mega Man).  They were not pre-orderable.  Maybe someone called and had one held or (I assume, more likely) the employee was purchasing them.

 

 

 

I never got around to playing Destiny but just played Destiny 2 since it was on free play this last weekend. Looks like I can get the base game on disk for $10. Anyone want to give thoughts about it?

 

$10 for Destiny 2 seems like a solid value.  If you enjoyed what you played, buying Destiny 2 with the already released DLC may be a better bet, but either way, you'd get a fair amount of playtime.  It also depends on how much you like doing the same thing over and over.  I, myself, play Destiny 2 every week to do all three characters for all milestones except the Raid and after that, sometimes I use the app to help others with quests.  The repetition means I don't have to think all that much which is helpful for unwinding after being a therapist all day.  And accomplishing some things - even though they're relatively meaningless - like getting all the faction ornaments - is fairly rewarding (to me).

What exactly is the car pass? Or, how many cars would that add on?

 

From memory, I believe it's 7 cars a month in six monthly packs - 42 cars?  One of the car passes had a pass exclusive car, but that might've been Forza 3.

 

 

I played Forza Horizon 2 on 360 and promptly traded it in because the controls were horrible. Driving seemed to be like pushing a shopping cart with two rusted wheels. I'm considering Forza Horizon 2 on Xbox One for $5, but I'm wondering if it controls any better. I enjoy arcade style games like Burnout and Daytona, so it would be great if FH2 on Xbox One would control like those games.

 

I can't speak to the 360 version, but the FH games - to me - are amazing.  They all have arcade-style physics/steering, etc - and feel fast (unless you're driving a D-class car) - similar to Burnout (not sure about Daytona).  FH2 on 360 had a different developer and I think it's by and large a different game than the XBOX One version.

Maybe what you really need is therapy to fix that.

 

Given the prevalence rates of OCD are around 1-2% of the population, OCD has to be the most self-diagnosed disorder on the internet - every third person claims to have OCD and very few of them appear to have any idea what it actually is.  And I can't imagine anyone with OCD - given how debilitating it can be - is actively buying things to make the obsessive thinking worse, let alone throwing up a humblebrag post about it on CAG ("I have the most pristine boxes, I'm OCD!").

i bought a bishoujo statue at a clearance online. came in as opened. i see dust and dirt on the statue. definitely opened. possibly from the open box that was displayed in the store.

 

Ah, that's no good.  I'd be more concerned with dust/dirt on resin than vinyl/PVC, but neither is ideal certainly.  I haven't seen any Bishoujo stuff on Gamestop - just ArtFx - which did you get?

Does GameStop even deal in pre-owned statues?

 

Not pre-owned, but some of the stores will open several and display them (in locked glass cases).  Having said that, I don't think I've received one ordered online that had the tape broken around the foam trays.  Although I have done it, I'm always a bit leery of purchasing open statues only because employees have thrown away the inner wrap at times and I'm not sure how careful they are generally.
