I'd play Rogue on current-gen, and wouldn't mind finishing 3. Shut up, I had a good time with it.

AC is potentially one of the best videogame sagas ever, but it suffers from overexposure. There's about 10 very similar games (only Black Flag could count as mildly different) and it's VERY hard to muscle through all of them, especially if you're a completionist like me, without getting bored. If the series becomes "slower" in releases, becomes bigger and more epic, with more RPG elements and a lot of new elements, I can only be happy. As of today, AC2 is still one of my favourite games ever, and if an episode of the saga manages to make me go "wow" like that one did again, I'll be happy. It's hard to keep up with so many AC games though, don't forget we had 2 entries in 2014 for example. A slowdown is definitely welcome and so is a collection: now that is one remastered I'd buy.

Woot, XBLR finally caught up, got my 5% extra for last month. Total of 13,150 for Jan 14th deposit. The largest I've ever received. They should do this every month. Might actually be worth the shit then.

Just noticed my Xbox Rewards has updated:
31/12/15 - MyVIP Star Level 2 - 12,400 Credits (Pending)

31/12/15 - Gimme5! Five-Year Anniversary Rewards – 5% MyVIP Payback Boost - 12,500 Credits
(Pending)

During the 5% promotion my cashback went up to 9%.

Would the 5% boost just be the 5% or would it be the 9%?

It's been on sale pretty regularly so I'm sure it'll be $5 again.

The 5% boost is just 5%, applied to purchases during the promotion period in the 2nd half of December.  The MyVIP  Star Level 2 line is your 4% rebate for (almost) all purchases during the month of December.  I say almost because it looks like games that were part of their exclusives offer (Tomb Raider, Forza 6, Halo 5, Gears of War Ultimate, Rare Replay) aren't part of the regular rebate.  Last night, the regular rebate percentages went pending on accounts, and my rebate amount lines up only if the exclusives aren't a part of it.  My Payback Boost amount does appear to include the exclusives.

I bought the $10 bundle, played for about 3-4 hours and i am pretty bored so far, nothing more than sneaking and finding ways to open doors but HOPEFULLY it gets more exciting. However, i picked up The Evil Within bundle and think its fun as shit. Scary too.

I'm apparently getting a little over $25 back in rewards on the 14th. Id check the math to see if that's right but then I'd just end up realizing how much I apparently spent.

Hope you enjoyed opening all those doors in the first 4 hours. You'll be opening MORE doors....in fact, you'll be opening the same ones later on, for the next 20 hours.

I normally bitch about the weekly deals but it's only fair that I praise the couple of weeks that they actually offer me something I would buy. Picked up Phantom Breaker as it will probably be the only XBLA game they put on sale for the next couple of weeks. Probably will pick up a few indys on the X1 as well. Hopefully PB sells well and someone takes note and realizes that the 360 has a back catalog of 400 or so XBLA games that have not seen a sale in years, and that sales can move digital copies of XBLA games that sell a few units a year.

Its really fun, played with a couple people and I least for me it was fun. Would highly recommend it if you enjoy arcade style beat em ups. Its also not a very long game so you can try out all the different characters. Saw that it was BC now makes me want to play it some more.

 

 

Alright, I'll get it so that I bought something on XBL in the last 6 months...

Also this is slightly off topic, but I sure am glad the occulus rift is prohibitively expensive. Had it been cheaper I may have bought it on a whim like I did that 3 pack of Luma routers.

Loved me some Sleeping Dogs when it was the GWG, played the dlc with achievements too. I'm hoping the Definitive edition will hurry up and be GWG on the One already as that seems pretty much inevitable anyway.

And to paraphrase, "but we already knew that".

Yeah this is KINDA why i didn't get it instead. I LOVED SD on the 360 back in the day but never got to beat it. I just wanted something new/different. So i got Alien and The Evil Within. ALL i had before were freakin FPS games and i got SO BORED. So i ended up getting GTAV too, so now i have GTAV, Halo 5, Alien, The Evil Within, Borderlands THC, Fallout 4 and a few others, its nice to have a chnage, i just hope Alien isn't always so boring.

Nice, yeah also saw pending credits in my XBLR account. A bit more than just doing monthly surveys. :D

 

Also, the sleeping avatar on my sig is bugging me. Isn't there a way to pose your avatar for that? I remember there was a thing but that was a few years ago so I've forgotten what you need to do. Also the Avatar Editor doesn't work in any of my browsers due to the stupid Silverlight plug-in (it still says Get Silverlight even though it says the same version of SIlverlight is already installed). I haven't booted up that thing on any of my Xboxes lately.

I have 1500 points in rewards on $32 in purchases, so under 5%. Why is there zero-star rank? Shouldn't we at least start as 1-star?

Kind of off-topic but does anyone here have Far Cry 4 on X1 and want to help me knock out the co-op achievements at some point? Only 2 and they shouldn't take long at all but trying to find a public session these days is torture.

I'd be cautious with 4chan leaks, very few end up real. They're usually just someone making educated guesses when they only post with zero evidence. Not that much info is actually given in these Assassin's Creed posts. I'd say that Egypt is the only thing I'll count on out of that.

Alien is definitely an acquired taste and very polarizing. You either love it or hate it. If you're looking for an action game, this isn't it. If you like tension, atmosphere and understand that encounters with the Alien are not gonna happen ever 5 minutes or even every hour, then you may dig it.

I personally love the game, which is strange for me to say since I typically like more action oriented games, but others despise it and are bored to tears.

I will.... As soon as they drop to $60. $150 is way too much for a controller no matter how amazing it is.

Tried to start Fallout 4 last night but I fell asleep while customizing my character. The sad part is that I'm not kidding about that.
