I tried finding it but couldn't find anything beyond the vague 'three content DLCs for the price of one!" jargon... What would buying the Infinite season pass ensure me today? Clash in the Clouds, Buried At Sea 1, and Colombia's Finest Pack? Sounds like it's better buying it piece-meal as is now since they're on sale.

Clash in the Clouds and both Buried at Sea episodes.  You don't get the Colombia's Finest Pack but you do get a different pack with similar style stuff in it.

I have a query, maybe someone with an XBone but no 360 who is on this thread can check it out for me by telling me if they can purchase free GWG XBLA games for the 360, but does Xbox Live Gold for one system allow you to purchase free Games With Gold for the system you don't own. Hence will I as a non-XBone user or owner be able to amass some free games when they do start doling them out for that system so that in a few years time when i do own an XBone (if ever that happens) I'll have a library ready to game with?

Probably this means that we will see a sale on Half Minute Hero pretty soon. Great news for those who care (count me among them).

I'll believe the sale when I see it, until than it's safe from the dungeon known as my backlog.

Except do realize that the XBLA version of Half Minute Hero has less features than the PSP or PC version. I think the PC version is now considered the best one to buy. Also if anyone is interested that sequel mentioned came out in Japan in 2011 for the PSP. Looking forward to a USA release :-)

I imagine they've thought that though, and will likely put restrictions on how game licenses are acquired. For the Xbox One GWG games, I'd bet they force people to purchase through the console itself. I have a friend with a One, so I plan on signing in with my profile when the program starts to see if I can snag games that way.

I always end up buying games for my little brother's account on the website. I'm not sure if that answers your question even remotely, but I know that works. I also do it with my account, although I do own both X1 and 360.

Yeah, right now you can't get anything for the Xbox One through the website, aside from anything related to codes you redeem.
 (XBL Rewards sent me a code for DLC for Ryse and that worked perfectly), so you need a box in order to buy anything.

 

As for an Xbox One user without a 360, it's easy enough to buy GWG 360 games through the website, as long as you have a payment method attached (I have a used up prepaid debit, for example).

Half Minute Hero is an amazing game that's worth a try. When I owned a PSP it was one of my go to favourites for a quick play as most levels take under 2 minutes to complete so it was perfect fodder for a subway ride. There is a lot of replayability as well as you get certain ratings/bonuses based on different decisions you make (each level usually has about 2 or 3 different ways to beat it). The XBLA version is good. I don't like the updated graphics and find it annoying that I have to change it each time I start up the game. The music is phenomenal and there's a lot of great humourous moments in the game as well as a lot of various branching. Sadly the XBLA version is missing the fleshed out other modes such as Princess and Knight mode that are watered down. The originaly graphics are meant to look really ugly and pixelated, that's sort of the joke as there's a fair bit of meta humour about the game.

 

Ultimately it's a great experience, though I do prefer it on the PSP to what they released on XBLA. It's still fantastic if you can grab it on sale especially if you're an old school gamer who remembers playing Zelda and other Zelda-likes back on the NES. It still cracks me up that the fighting in the game is essentially just running headlong into your enemy into they run out of health. The combat has zero depth but there's a fair bit of strategy in knowing when to buy additional time and some interesting puzzles that often depend on precise timing to find secrets. Definitely worth a trial in the very least. But yeah, wait til it goes on sale as I wouldn't buy it for full price.

Thanks for the answer guys. It looks like it pays to know someone with an XBOne to do that for you. Though hopefully they'll sort out website purchasing so we might be able to just do that on there. It'd be great to have a few games for whenever I do grab an XBOne - fingers crossed that MS doesn't put too many hurdles for me to jump through to manage that.

You can actually order XB1 games through the the website. If you click on the games tab one of the tiles at the top states Xbox One Game store browse now. I have ordered from there before and would imagine if they had free games you could order through there without a console.

Blackgate was SUPPOSED to be out today. Got postponed til the 2nd. Castlevania dlc got postponed til tomorrow as well.

I was gonna post about this earlier, but no one replied to my original post and just assumed no one would give a shit.

Where did you hear that Blackgate was coming out on the 25th? Every single announcement back in February(by WB) said the game was coming out April 2nd. I have literally, never heard of a different release date other than from you. http://www.saveconti...by-warner-bros/

 

This week is meh, as usual. Will wait for a good publisher sale or something cause the DotW has been crap/repeats for a while now

 

EDIT: Not meant to be condescending to you, just wondering who the heck made this false release date for Blackgate. Perhaps the same people who predicted Batman Arkham Asylum and Ninja Gaiden 2 was GwG freebies??

I was excited for Half Minute Hero, but when I tried it I just could not get into it.  At all.  Maybe I was missing something.  If it goes super cheap, I'll pick it up.  Sometimes the demo isn't indicative of the full experience.

Ah, okay. The Microsoft XBL website listing leak. You must have missed the WB announcement then. PEACE

I had a free rental code from redbox and got Survival Instinct and I still got ripped off. I want my money back man. But really, that game had horrible AI, the environments were empty as hell when you were in em, the story was horrendous for a video game.....the list goes on.

 

I am ashamed to have TWD Survival Instinct on my gamercard. And I've played Avatar and imported My Horse & Me 2 for the achievements.

Nowhere near as bad as Amy. It is a stealth game that can get frustrating really fast if you aren't being stealthy.

Update on Guardians of Middle-earth Online Impressions

 

OK, I had a lot fewer lag issues when I was playing Gold mode (no compatibility packs or maps downloaded). Since downloading them, there have been some horribly laggy games and lots of disconnects - if not me, someone in the match. Seems to occur with the Brazilian players. Still fun when I can get through a game with a full team, though.

Robert kirkman did an askmeanything, and made repeated jokes about how shitty survival instinct is. When asked why he said he doesn't control everything in the IP, and said "it says AMC at the start of the game, if it said my name I'd take responsibility for it. "

Did anyone ask him why the show has gotten so shitty? He's all kinds of involved with that.

That's.. new. I'm annoyed you can't buy DLC though, I want to crossbuy the Season Pass for ACIV before the deal expires.

 

Also, wow, is that all the games for Xbox One so far? That's a surprisingly short list, I figured there was more.

That is one reason I've held out on all these great sales recently on the Xbone... In terms of straight price, $430-450 is as good or better than it's likely to get in the next couple of years... BUT there is the strong possibility that they'll do a version with a larger HDD. I'd rather have that than pack-in Titanfall or Forza.

Probably because, according to AMC, the show isn't making any profit. It is actually losing money.

I don't believe it, but that is what AMC was saying when they had that lawsuit against them a few months ago.

Yeah, amc also cuts corners to save money and have been doing so since the first season.

Wow. Did it really get that bad? I tuned out after S3 because I lost my viewing buddy and didn't have the heart to keep watching without her. If them losing money is true.. that's a shame, but it's not like I have a Nielsen box to do anything about it.
