In all seriousness, I played a bit of GTA5 and it was like I spent 25% of the time doing fun stuff, and 75% of the time running and hiding from the police, which was not fun. And then I was like, why am I not playing Saints Row instead.


Haha yes! SR 4 was everything I wanted in a sandbox game. I love crass, over the top silliness. I wish more games were that fun.

Has anyone played Operation Raccoon City?

Great game with horrible AI. Play with friends and you'll have a good time.

 

Has anyone played Grand Theft Auto 5 ? I know it's a niche, indie game but I thought someone could give me their opinion on it.

Basically open world Operation Raccoon City, but with worse AI and no enemy variety.

Hello stranger! 8-[  Valid points, still ammo becomes an issue if you go gun crazy, as any RE before it. And how the game manages inventory limits anyway the amount of items you can carry at any time, with that genius case where you can place and rotate your items to maximize your slots. Regarding the story, without underestimating your logical and good explanation, i loved it. It was like more intimate, without the forced twists here and there implying umbrella, no big conspiracy and much more important not worldwide (as every RE after it). It felt more like the story in RE1 before the script goes nuts and you had a mansion to explore and a mystery to resolve. Besides, located in a region of an imaginary 'deepest' Spain, where the 'infected' speak with mexican accent and even yell 'behind you!' when they attack your back... that's priceless to me  :rofl:

Fair enough.  I'll respect your opinions.  Also, I agree that I don't really like how widespread the bioweapon threats have become.  I wasn't really a fan of how B.O.W.'s were just roaming the streets all over the place in different parts of the world in RE6.  I'll also agree that the Umbrella plotline had dragged on for too long and was getting way too convoluted by time RE0 came out.  But the way to resolve that wasn't to just ignore it.  They needed to give it a proper conclusion before moving onto something completely new.

 

Capcom did their best to try to fix this with Umbrella Chronicles and RE5, but it was after the fact since RE4 had already screwed everything up.  RE6 felt more like an experiment in which they were forced to either reboot the series completely or come up with all new plotlines for the existing characters since RE5 had pretty much tied up all of the major loose ends from the series.

Picked up Resident Evil 4, Lost Planet 2 + 3, Asura's Wrath. Where is Resident Evil 6? I would have paid $5-6 for it. Might pick up Revelations towards the end of the sale after I research it.

I find it so hard to pull the trigger for 3rd gen stuff... I have a backlog still on 360 and, thanks to Best Buy, I get to start my X1 backlog 6 months earlier than I thought I'd be able to buy a console... Otherwise, I'd be all over RE4. I loved that game on the PS2.

Awesome, blows Saints Row 3 and 4 out of the water. Must have beaten it like 3 times already, cant wait till the PS4/X1 versions come out later.

Up until SR 4...I'd agree with you. Just my preference.

Remember what I said about having proof about Origin being hacked, (the hacker reversing the username and password I has from Origin, and making a user account on a Russian gaming service with the Origin password as the username)? And that I do not trust them to protect my data, and won't be signing up for EA Access as long as it requires a credit card that processes through Origin?

Well, looks like I was right:

They don't say what specific sites were hit, but I bet you that Origin was one of them.

I'd say password changes and two-step authentication would be a good start for anyone.

Got Resident Evil 4. One of my favorite games and one of the only games i ever beat on the gamecube (Resident Evil zero being the only other)

 

Would like to get Revelations but the price still seems a bit too much. I assume around Christmas time it will probably be around $5.

Fuck. Just went back through my purchase history because MS deleted a shit ton of my pins... There are like 80 games I own digitally. I also own seemingly every export pack for Guitar Hero or Rock Band Games. That makes me want to buy RB Blitz just to hear the songs form all the other games.

Happy to see some Rock Band 3 dlc on sale although I have American Idiot from the Green Day RB import and I got the Doors pack on sale when the game first came out. I think it was purchased through the game as I could still buy it on xbox.com so be careful when buying

Hopefully they'll put some more packs on sale in the future. I'll buy London Calling!


So the entire American Idiot album is in Green Day RB?

I really wish someone would finally port call of cthulhu dark corners of the earth to the 360 or Xbox one even digital only would be fine by me


I second this.

Revelations is a great game but if you're an achievement wh0re beware, it has one of the toughest lists in the entire 360 library. A large portion of the achievements are tied to Raid Mode missions and they're pretty damn challenging.

$hit, been waiting for Darkstalkers but having trouble pulling the trigger. I probably won't play it anytime soon and who knows if it'll be GwG. I do love Morrigan.

Was excited to finally play Crimson Dragon and I promptly deleted it. Something about the targeting and dragon movement being independent of each other did not work with my brain.

it's backwards compatible on 360. pick up a used copy for around $10-$15. it runs mostly ok, nothing game breaking, frame rate is good (from what i remember). however, take out your hard drive (or possibly clear your cache), and i believe the saves either become corrupted or unusable.

stealth playthrough FTW

heard so many bad things about that game, wonder why is it 11.59 even on sale.  Actually I would check its lameness under 5 but not over 10.

under $5

D&D CoM is the better beat-em-up for your money.

I'm really liking Final Fight. Interesting seeing where some of the SF4 characters came from. The version on XBL is censored a little bit, but not the fully censored version. Haven't played D&D or the 2nd game that comes with Final Fight.

What country do you live in? XIII-2 would be like $10 USD in the US. It's pretty shitty that companies would charge the same in euros or pounds.

 

It sucks, but it's how it is. I live in Italy but that is what Euro-countries get in general. If we look at MS sales, it's mostly the same as well, sometimes worse in fact: whereas 60 bucks seems to be the maximum in the US, here we can get to 70 Euros as well, not just the 1:1 conversion of 60. This also makes it so that a lot of percentage deals on the XBL marketplace actually are far more expensive in Europe than in the US: we had multiple times where US had a game for like 10$ and ours was 25 Euros, because on the European marketplace it did not receive the same price cuts. The most recent example is 2014 FIFA World Cup, that was like 18$ in the US if I'm not mistaken, but around 21 Euros here, given the different original price to which they added the same percentage. Sometimes, we get lucky-ish: right now you're getting Remember Me for 10 bucks, for it's 7,49 which is around the same price. In super rare cases, we even get A LOT better deals: 2 years ago or so (before all these Ultimate Game Sales), Max Payne 3 went down to 15$ in the US, and for some reason it was 5 Euros here. Back then, that price was absolutely bonkers, almost unheard of that MS would do such sales so everyone lost their minds, haha.

That probably won't happen. It's the latest entry and it got great reviews. Even on a 1-day-sale, it's unlikely to go lower than $7.50.

What is it with people lowballing game publishers? Someone earlier said they would have paid $5 for Resident Evil 6 if it was included in the sale. I'm sure Capcom is desperate for your $5, which is only like $3 worth of purchasing power in Japan. This is similar to when people were speculating that Microsoft would make XBL free and instead they raised the price to $60.

Just laws of economics really. With my tastes and time to play games factored in, many of the games on sale wouldn't even get played if I got them for free. Capcoms plentiful fighting games have just never interested me much. For some, at $5 they would be interested.

Yeah but we're not talking about fighters. We're talking about one of the most lucrative franchises of all time. One that has spawned several wildly successful films and sells millions of games even when they're critically panned. It's just not realistic that they'll sell for $5 unless they're really old like Resident Evil 5.
