I bought Mirror's Edge for $10 last week from Gamefly.  You can't make this stuff up!

Decent sale for a change but probably nothing I really need out of it except PVZ2 (unless it goes on sale on PSN for the same tomorrow) so Blue Dragon it is.  Picked up Birdman and Whiplash with the Oscars promo, tempted to grab more but I still don't feel 100% confident we'll get a GC for each one without issue and there's nothing else I don't have that I'm super in to.

 

Have an interview for a clinical placement this morning. I guess the good news is, if I don't get it, I'll have more time to clear the backlog...??

 

What will they be testing on you?

 

OLED is still 4K, just a different pixel technology with superior contrast/black level.

 

Next you're going to try and tell me LED TVs are just LCD TVs with a different backlight.

 

Thanks for all the encouraging words. Had a call to schedule a second interview within 2 hours of leaving, if they need additional references I'll direct them to this thread. "All these people think you should hire me, so..."

 

Sounds like you got it, now don't blow it catastrophically!

 

Apparently if you change your region to Mexico Torment:Tides of Numenera is around $25, credit goes to some guy in the trade thread

 

Better not get caught on the other side of that wall.

 

that seems like a really good price for pvz 2 deluxe

 

never played but tempted at that price even though I don't play multiplayer

 

Sure seems like it, deluxe upgrade is $10 on it's own normally.  I just dumped my unplayed $8 BF copy off to GS for $30 so I guess I'll be replacing it.

 

WHOLEY SHIT. Stranger of Sword City is $10?!. I'm dying guys. Insta-buy. Me, Masked Heel, and a few others have been waiting forever for this sale. I'm so happy right now.

Perhaps a price error ... get it quick!

 

Bought this on Vita and still haven't opened it.  Go me.

 

It's really annoying when the Playstation Store gets games cheaper than the Xbox Live Marketplace.  Inside was just on sale (and still is) for $7.99 compared to the $13.39 here.

 

You must be annoyed almost constantly then.

 

OMG OMG OMG

 

WHAT WHAT WHAT?

 

At an almost 4yr old game, RYSE is so amazing and slept on.

 

#RYSE

 

Ryse got so much hate at launch and I still don't really get why.  It wasn't perfect but it was damn fun and looked pretty nice other than the breast "physics".

So this is odd.  I go to the webpage for PvZ:GW2 DE and it shows that it comes with the base game and the Deluxe upgrade.  Below the portrait of the base game, it says the word "Owned."  I click on that and it takes me to the webpage for the base game and prompts me to buy it for $8.  I haven't bought either version of the game (yet) so I shouldn't own it at all.  I just thought that was odd.

You on disability or something to where you have an insane amount of time to game?


Nah, if he's playing a bunch of smaller games with 5+ hour completion times then it's not hard to see him getting 20K in one month. There's a ton of them on the One.

I think it had one of those free to play weekends a long time ago, did you play it then, maybe that's it?

You serious? It's probably as popular as it's ever been. Plus there's much more to do in addition to PvP.

Lol, yeah, I'm serious.  I don't own the game, don't have any friends that play it, don't know of any way to check out how played a game is, haven't heard much online  about it recently and many top tier shooters have released since it did, so I have no idea how active it is.  Thanks for letting me know and it's good to hear it's doing well.  I may get it.

 

Another free DLC, not sure if it always was, but I usually nab all free dlc, especially for games in the backlog:

 

Dragon Age Origins:  The Stone Prisoner

My X1 has been acting crazy tonight. Most annoying is that the One Guide setup screen just randomly pops up (I don't have my cable going through it either).

For the need for speed bundle is it correct that nfs requires always online? It was never patched out? Nfs rivals though is offline if I want correct? Might just want for nfs rivals to go on sale by itself if this is how it works.

After just buying Deadpool, Instant Indie Hits, and NASCAR Heat Evolution, I need to spend $20 more in the next 12 hours to hit the $100 threshold to get another XBL rewards star.

 

Any suggestions?


Once as a kid I cried as my parents drove from ny to nj. That was a far cry.

Man MS could you at least put the X1 version of FH2 on sale? If you can make the 360 version $9 I would happily pay $15 for the X1 version.

If you have friends or relatives that come over to your home to play games then I'd say go for any of the Jackbox packs.

That's what happens when I'm like 200 posts behind and actually bother to read all of it.

 

I don't have nicely manicured girl feet if that's what you're getting at.

I think it was Bobby that posted about Kilgore being the current free rotating character. Thank you! I like using him, but will probably wait until his price drops down to $5 later this year. I liked using him so much I even wrote some impressions of him for my buddy's new website. Normally I don't like zoning, but he makes zoning fun by being somewhat easier to use than others in the game. I dominated at first in player matches, but was getting my ass kicked once the higher ranks started showing up. Even when I was losing, I was still having fun. 

 

Shadow of War looks like a must buy for me this time around. Hopefully they got a bigger budget and put that money into making the game world larger. Mordor felt very small by the end of the game. The trailer makes it look like we might get to visit some iconic locations.

So is Mirror's Edge Catalyst any good? I enjoyed the first one, even the shooting parts didn't bother me too much. Still it was all that first person running and jumping that made it good. I'm a little concerned because this title dropped in price so quickly it seems. 8 bucks isn't too bad but I'm contemplating putting that into something else like Inside or Firewatch.

The latest NFS game requires online but you can get around it in Rivals. I've played Rivals online and it's a while different experience. All drive and autolog are fun but yeah in NFS (2015) you have to be online to play it.

Oh almost forgot the latest Forzathon is super easy, grab a Subaru and win races.

Eh, good isn't the word I would use.  I mean there's moments where it is really good and nails that focus and pace of the first game and you're like this is awesome and I need more.  The problem is all the open world absolute garbage in between those set piece missions.  The world is just empty of what feels like anything meaningful and you're far too often forced to make these long treks across it for no real reason.  It's one of those things where you can clearly see, especially in the areas of the world that are later in the game, where they wanted to do more with it but had to drastically cut with all the last minute delays.  The sort of GTA wanted mechanics are really, really bad too and made worse by the world design.  Almost every escape was made way too long by an inability to go where you think you're going to be able to go or running in to any of the countless dead ends.  Then you can't escape the little search radius so you get to try and escape all over again or fall to your death trying to nudge yourself out as far as you can hoping to get outside it.

 

All that being said, is there $8 of fun to be had despite some really poor design choices and a poor to bad story?  Absolutely, I would just stick to the story and non open world missions as much as possible.  They just got way too ambitious with the open world design and completely failed to deliver on it.  It's just unfortunate that the good bits, which can get really good, are built around that open world.

the gift and the curse of open world games. Devs have so much freedom to make these gigantic games but they often feel empty and can overwhelm some people. That's why when I see some folks clamoring for the new Middle Earth game to have a bigger map, I'm secretly hoping they keep the map the same size.
