A question if possible.  Does the standard digital version of Gears of War 4 come with the Gears of War Collection?  I see the one at best buy does, but does the digital?  I have about $65 worth of Bing credits and need to use them before they expire.  Thanks for any help

I guess I'll go ahead and throw in my recommendations. 

 

I picked up Bard's Gold at launch and enjoyed it quite a bit. $5 was a pretty good price for it. It's pretty similar to Rouge Legacy (only not quite as good) but it's definitely worth $3 if you're into these kind of platformers. And for my fellow achievement hunters, it took me about 6 hours to 100% it.

 

10 Second Ninja X is another game I bought at launch for $6 during their promotion. It's a pretty well made trial and error game. Super Meat Boy fans should like it, although it's not anywhere near as hard. It took me about 5 hours to earn all but 2 achievements (750/1000), but during the time I played it some of the achievements were glitched and wouldn't unlock, not sure if they ever fixed them. I'll hop on the game later and check.

 

 And finally Outland. Outland was one of my favorite games I played on the 360. It's a beautiful platformer/bullethell/metroidvania style game that anyone that's a fan of any of those 3 genres should play. It's a steal at $4, just go buy it. Also, it should take about 10 hours to complete.

Ugh, it's bad. I might pick up Far Cry 4 though.


You realize it's "cheap ass" for a reason right? I secured Far Cry 4 for under $15 at least a year ago. This should be no more than $10 at this point. It's what, three years old?

Far Cry 4 is $10 at Walmart right now.
It was at mine anyway. Probably chain wide (guess)

Have not played a Far Cry since the first one on PC is blood dragon worth it? BC correct?

Yes, Blood Dragon is BC.

None of Splinter Cells are BC yet.

Anyone know what the latest preview update version is that includes Arenas? Checked several places and it seems they make the version #s impossible to find ...

On a more positive note, BC Tuesday is just ten hours away!

 

Also, BC Thursday is just 58 hours away!

 

Just got Blue Dragon for $10ish on ebay shipped. Getting it before the prices go way up like Lost Odyssey and World at War.

The Gamestop website for the Xbox 1TB Gears bundle says "Includes a physical copy of Gears of War 4 for both Xbox One and Windows 10, so you can make shared progress across devices."  How is this possible?  Are they including a physical PC disc?

Great "sale".  I saw the Division was up and I figured it would be a cool purchase for a sale price since it's been out for a while now... $35?!?!?!  Haha, yeah, no.

They probably swapped digital with physical and published it

They published a PC version of the game?  A Microsoft game?  I don't think so.

Yes, but Play Anywhere is only for digital games.  So unless Gamestop is giving you both a GOW4 Xbox One disc and a digital code, there's no way you could play it on PC like their description indicates.  I'm assuming Gamestop just screwed up the listing.  Otherwise it would be a fantastic deal.

Yeah, sorry I just realized I misread what you were asking. Yeah, I would have to guess the Gamestop messed up the listing because they only sell bundles with physical games right? So I'm guessing the bundle from another retailer would be digital which would work and whoever puts up the gamestop listing just subbed out the words digital for physical without realizing that you don't get play anywhere with physical.

 

Also the free GTA online bikers DLC is out. It seems fine I guess, nothing really standing out.

Since the deals are shit (what a surprise), I have an off-topic tech question:

 

For the past few days my iPhone 6 has been constantly disconnecting from my wifi when sleeping. It will reconnect automatically after a few seconds when I wake it up. Is there a way to fix this?

Buy an android. Sorry, you set yourself up for that one.

Still no response from my eBay seller, 3 more days and I think eBay will just automatically give me a refund. Maybe I'll still be able to grab it on launch after all.

I didn't care for Galactrix but Puzzle Quest 2 is a solid game.

I can't for the life of me get this FH3 car pass to download, it's stuck in ready to install and will just not download. Been trying since yesterday. I got the vip and that other pack to download from the UE but the car pass is just stuck.

 

BTW, what is the CAG FH3 club that I should be joining?

Sweet, they should be doing them in waves because I haven't gotten mine yet. Unless they don't think I'm a loyal gears fan which would just be insane.

 

 

 

edit- First ever wheelspin and I get $75,000 ($150,000 VIP x2) Luck starting off good

I think everyone is in [CAG].  However, when I got to the club phase, no one on my friends list was in [CAG] so I didn't know about it and created [CAGs].  But it's just me in there ;)

Just got an Operations Gear Pack for Gears 4 from Xbox. I played the Gears 3 beta and that's all I've done with Gears.... Wonder what qualifies.

A demo for Outlast 2 is up. This demo will be removed from the store on 11/1, so get it while you can.

I don't mind most scary games, but isn't the Outlast series supposedly pants-pooping material?

 

EDIT - Just watched this video of IGN people playing it. No thanks, I'm good.

Yeah, you have to have a fancy bathroom TV set up to get the intended experience.
