Any regulars in need of a Metro 2033 Redux code for X1? Came with my Metro Exodus copy and I already own it. PM me. Free of course.

I disagree. The BBB has successfully resolved 3 separate issues out of 3 for me in the last 6 years or so. One was an issue with a dentist's office that resulted in me being refunded over 1000 dollars after being told by everyone in the office that "nothing could be done unfortunately". The other 2 were both video game related, one was EA, and the other was Activision.

Long story short, it's worth the 15 minutes it takes to file a dispute with the BBB...

For what it's worth, I called once my free item showed as cancelled, and the gentleman I reached was more than willing to help. In my case it was a paid and a free game. One cancelled and one awaiting. He placed a new order for one equally priced game for 0.00, and then had me place a store pick up order for the cancelled one at full price that was available for pickup near me. He then manually cancelled the Awaiting item. I did reach one person that spoke broken english who said nothing they could do. Called back and got this guy that at least sounded like he was not outsourced. So I guess YMMV?

It's possible the invoice is behind the shipping label covered in protective plastic. Found this out in one of my orders when I was cutting up a bubble mailer.

Amazing call. That's exactly where it was. FE3H was 46 and code vein was free. So I guess I'll see what happens with the other 2.

For part 2, I saw the one response saying it didn't work on iTunes, but I thought gaming gift cards were still good?

Anyone know a way for me to find out which two of my games were free and which were paid if they failed to include ANY invoice in my package? I ordered Code Vein, Fire Emblem 3 Houses, Links Awakening, and DQ XI. CV and FE3H arrived today. No slip. Other 2 are awaiting availability and I have no idea what to expect for pricing if they cancel the other 2, and I'm running out of time to return any as I wait for the other 2 games.

Unrelated question: I have 50k points, and would like to redeem for a 50 dollar cert, and use that for a 50 dollar xbl gift card. That should work, correct?

Thanks in advance!!

Also, for anyone that did the Xbox X 2k19 bundle with extra controller for 300 back on Thursday, I called my local store and explained the situation. Even though it was already opened, they had me bring the box, receipt, and console back in and credited me the 50 dollar difference with a return rebuy.

Very off topic but related to trading something in to GameStop. Does anybody know offhand how Minecraft stuff is saved on the Xbox One? If I trade my sons XB1 phat I will he lose all the worlds he built on Minecraft? I understand once we get the new one once he logs in he can just redownload the game but is his Minecraft profile saved to the Xbox or to the cloud?


None of it is tied to the console. He'll be fine.

I think he's saying that the disc drive would be oriented on top instead of on the bottom like pictured, but I guess it hasn't been confirmed which way it would be oriented.


It would have to be oriented the other way, as the hardware required to read the disc wouldnt fit between the slot and the outer edge of the console the way they have it...

Here's a mock up of what a Halo special edition Series X may look like:

Umm, why would the 117 be oriented that way? It would be upside down when laid horizontally...

Having bought the console, I can confirm it is a code. Therefore dumping it off at the nearest gamestop is not an option.

With the auto-renew one-month bonus on GPU, just got 7 months for $45 and am covered until October 2022. Pretty smart way to get folks locked into the Xbox ecosystem.

Also worth mentioning, they are apparently the 1997 editions being converted for the original trilogy, not the more recent Blu-Rays which had additional changes made / Lucas meddling. For now, I think the existing BR set is good enough for me unless I get a deal on a subscription, a Simpsons marathon sure would be nice.

I was under the impression that these were explicitly NOT the original 97 editions, but the Lucas-altered "enhanced" editions...

Side note, I feel this news DRAMATICALLY increases the odds of us getting a 4k box set of all the movies very soon.

The base game of Overcooked 2 is easier than the base game of the first Overcooked. However, the 3 star cutoffs in the DLC for 2 are SUPER tight for some levels. Some required dozens upon dozens of restarts and near perfect coordination for my wife and I to 3 star. Just a heads up. Was still a BLAST though.

Unfortunately, yes. I'm so used to running and gunning it's difficult to change over. Also, the enemies seem to take a lot more damage than other shooters.


They take a lot more damage BECAUSE you're intended to be firing from cover.

For anyone interested, the Gorod Krovi zombies map in Black Ops III has been fixed. It used to crash and award no Gateworm or achievement upon finishing. Was broken for like 18 months. I started a grassroots effort to get BBB complaints filed (at least 50 of us filed them) about a month ago, and the patch went live today. Pretty awesome stuff.

I did. Joycon are updated and screen is a slight improvement too. New warranty also. Easy wins all around

Is the Ezio Collection worth is for $10 if you already own the 360 games? I know it's $10 for three full games, but I've never played an Assassin's Creed game before...although I own several. :-


In my opinion it's a really solid upscale. Nothing was changed, but all multiplayer stuff was removed. If you own the originals I'd say maybe. If not it would be an absolute no brainer at 10 bucks.

Uncalled for? Sometimes I forget its 2019 got to offend someone


Nothing to do with being offended. I personally haven't followed the series since GOW3. So literally could not care less. However, to respond to a direct question where someone is very specifically trying to avoid spoilers, with a spoiler, is a dick move. Call a spade a spade and let's move on.

Marcus dies in the tutorial.


True or not, that was... sort of uncalled for...

One nice thing I will say about the Switch Lite is I like Nintendo not relying on the traditional black, gray and white console color schemes and the Pokemon version looks stupid nice. $200 to lose so many features though makes me feel I'd buy a refurbished collectors edition design one down the line at best.

Also I'm about three months away from my trip to Japan, my biggest downside in all this is I will lose my XBox Rewards Weekly streak.


But on the positive side it may save your marriage and keep your kids from disowning you!

Im guessing if it puts you to more than 36 months out it still won't work, right?
