wonder what people's opinions on Dirt Rally is (in particular the xbox version)? Relatively new, pretty high praise, but doesn't seem like it will be enhanced for xbox one x. In which case I might as well wait for a steam sale.

I've been playing Earthbound on the SNES Classic. It's still such a fun deep game even this many years later. Is there any newer RPGs that are similar to this? I'm guessing prob not on Xbox?

Depends on if you want a hardcore sim. Dirt 4 is closer to the other Dirt games. Rally is really tough but good if you like it like that.

I've been of the opinion there hasn't been an RPG like Earthbound except for it's sequel which never came to the states unfortunately.

I'm thinking of buying Fallout 4's vanilla game and getting the DLC either individually or getting the season pass separately (on sale of course)
I recently played 3 and New Vegas on 360 and didn't have any DLC and I greatly enjoyed them, but as a CAG, I don't want to drop $60 on the game + season pass when I could buy just the game and some other games too (via Amazon) such as Mass Effect Andromeda since it's apparently going for so cheap these days.

​Oh, and I'm asking for PS4 game purchase purposes. I figure if political bs can make its way into an Xbox deals thread, I may as well ask my Xbox pals for their thoughts considering you guys are way more talkative about such things than the PSN thread is.

WTF? Fake news like a mawfucka. Next time do some research before overreacting like a typical hysterical liberal.

Right. You quoted the same site, only the info was updated later. Nothing fake about it.

This thread is beginning to stress me out. Anyone picking up anything on sale this week? Anyone with recommendations? I'll take the 'ol CAG seal of approval over most critic reviews any day. 

Well if you haven't, i'd recommend the Arkham Knight Premium Edition. It has a lot of content for $16 but it does take a lot of space.

Citizens of Earth, South Park: The Stick of Truth, and Undertale. Only one of those is on Xbox.

I would say you should wait on the Fallout DLC/SP, this will most likely be a BF sale and jump on Mass Effect: Andromeda now because like you said it's so low right now. The DLC for Fallout 4 is cool and all but there's plenty in the base game. That's also with Andromeda, in a $ per hour comp, that's a big value there. Shrug, I liked Andromeda and thought it was a decent spin-off tbh.

Last political thing but if you don't think MSM is trying to tar and feather President Trump, you haven't been paying attention. Here's an actual study talking about all the negative press.

Kind of stupid that bing is considered promo credit.

And trump tars and feathers himself with all the dumb ass shit he says, who brags about it being “only” 16 deaths, Fuck outta here.

Our country is a fucking laughing stock at this point but people still blaming the media.

And yes the right wing media was so nice to Obama and trump himself didn’t lead a witch hunt for his birth certificate, but the liberals are the crazy ones.

Yes, news coverage about bad things does tend to be negative.

Happened to wake up. Not sure if I was subconsciously thinking about it but the Battlefront 2 beta is up for those that preordered and redeemed the code for it. Should pop up in your Ready to Install. If I didn’t have to actually get more sleep to function at work, I’d be playing in a few minutes! Rest assured I will be on my lunch hour though!



On an off topic but not political note, a Stanger Things game is out on mobile and it’s pretty cool (80s themed pixel adventure). Also completely free (no IAPs).



App Store link:

https://itunes.apple...1220479307?mt=8

Can’t seem to find it on Google Play yet but should be out today.

I've always thought this thread was one of the better threads on CAG so please don't Fuck it up. Please keep that political crap out of here. Some of you may be right and some of you may be wrong but no one is going to change anyone else's mind. You guys might as well be screaming at a wall. All you are doing is annoying everyone who doesn't want to hear that shit.

I guess i'm just pissed off that I'm currently downloading the SWBF2 beta(13.2 GBs) instead of playing it. I can't believe we weren't able to pre-load it. So dumb.

There is plenty to do in FO4 vanilla. I've played over 100 hours and haven't touched any of the DLC.

You can actually play twice a day, if you didn't know.  Once via text and once on the website.  Try again!

I keep going to places where stuff kills me in 1 hit on Normal. First I took a boat to an island by talking to a lady that only shows up at night in the first town.
Then I went down a well in the first town for a quest. Both adventures ended with me dying in 2 hits.

I ended up getting to the point where

Downloaded BF2 Beta on XBox One this morning but didn't have time to play it.  Also was in the process of downloading on my PS4 when I left.  Hope to get on after work tonight.
