Sigh...I bought several games from the BC sale and another 10 last week. Got Friday the 13th and Dead By Daylight, too.
Bring on the summer sale, I guess!


Picked up F13 again after I heard they fixed it and regretted it after playing a few games - I have been playing Dead by Daylight in the meantime and now F13 doesn't seem as good.. Maybe the single player mode will be more fun.

If they have a good Forza Horizon 3 price, I may have to jump on it. You guys have worn me down with all of your FH3 talk.

I can see that. I like DBD from what I've played but I find myself enjoying F13 more. The sketchy frame rates when chasing as a killer make DBD pretty hard at times.

I would get happy about $30 Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

I know ME:A wasn't as well received as the other ME games but it surprised me going through my achievements that finishing the story was a rare achievement.

Not really considering how massive the game is, I mean you're exploring a whole new galaxy. Although I can see a bunch of people hopping on to the game each week to play multiplayer. I'm still going mostly on the single player and yeah I want to do everything so I'm not there yet. The other side are the people that play the game and didn't like it or initially brushed it off from its rough launch. Sadly there's a good game here (Pros: Combat is top notch, Dialogue trees and character depth is intact & fun to discover, Crafting is neat & can change up a lot of things, Exploration is pretty much open season, Cons: Main story, Too many "meaningless" side quests, occasional bugs & rough animations) and if you're willing to play hours of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim with the numerous bugs and stiff animations, which you get with an open-world RPG, then I don't see why you wouldn't be playing ME:A. If someone decides to pick up the game during this sale I'd echo the fact to download the free app APEX HQ, which will allow you to run missions with your APEX teams and they'll inturn give your single player character credits & loot (including new weapons & new materials).

i dont trust the 'rare' achievement system. take the namco arcade series games. some f the fruit achievements are 'rare'. and they are very easy to obtain.

I think one of the things we've learned from achievement rarity is that tons of people buy games and play them but don't bother to keep on playing them. Even the drop-off in games that have an achievement for beating the first level and then the second can be pretty alarming.

I think the closest comparison in the case of ME:A is Dragon Age: Inquisition, where just 13.21% of those who have played the game have finished the story. And DA:I was really well received, but like ME:A was also long, with tons of side quests and a multiplayer component that some people got more caught up in than the SP.

There are some definite oddities.  Shadows of the Damned and The Simpsons Game will both pop an achievement when pressing a button at the title screen.  I can understand neither achievement having 100% completion on Xbox's system if they count people that start the game but don't do anything, or in Shadows of the Damned's case, count people that own it digitally even if they've never started it.  But I don't get how TrueAchievements' completion percentages aren't 100%, since I thought they didn't track a game for you until you popped an achievement (or possibly a challenge on XB1).  Can you register a game against your tag there without having played it, or could it be a case of Gamerscore resets removing the achievements but not disassociating ownership of the game?

I would guess on TA it has to do with people that got banned for cheating.

 

I've seen funky stuff with certain hackable games when they remove people that hacked the achievements.


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

I wonder if it's a matter of a second player still being logged in while the other player is logged in and actually playing the game?
