Are you on android or ios? Make sure you are using the "Microsoft Bing Search" app from the app store and it's up to date. They reworked the Bing app a little while back and I'm not sure if they simply updated the app or released a new one as I was transitioning from a windows phone at the time.
Even though I downloaded the Bing app, yeah I just use Chrome on my phone and it works for me. Shrugs
Someone gave me a $20 Steam card as a present a month or two ago and I finally got around to swapping it for XBL money with a friend who plays on PC a lot.
FH3 didn't cost me anything and now I can feel less bad about wanting to get some other stuff on sale. Fable Anniversary is still showing up as $10, and I may finally give Rocket League a chance.
Good, now the money your friend saved you with will go towards that Hot Wheels DLC. You know it's the best freakin' Forza Horizon content ever, DO IT! *insert Do it.gif
Android, if I knew how to post a screenshot I would. Downloaded the bing app last night, and the Edge browser (which kinda stinks) to my phone.
Aaaand looked over the sale now that it's on the xbox...still nothing for me out of everything there. Final Fantasy was a possibility, but not into the modern setting or combat style after watching clips. Witcher 3 was also a possibility, but not into being unable to create your own character in a huge rpg, so that's out. Nothing else is screaming Buy Me, so probably just going to buy the halo 5 standard edition off the game pass before my free trial ends after Thanksgiving.
Never use Edge, well other than when they gave a bonus 10 points a day to do another search through Edge, since it looks like they're done with the bonus entries. Just use a web browser, sign into Bing and search away. Sometimes I like to play a game where I set up a saying and then continue on for the next search starting with the last word I had in search. That or you can just search Steven Spielberg movies and select the movies on the list to aggregate points that way. It seems you're really picky what you're going to play and I thought you'd like the digital goodness this sale has (considering your drive is FUBARED).
This 'sale' is REALLY bad. All games are priced about $10-$15 more than last year during this exact sale. Not to mention, retail stores are charging less for the exact same games. XBOX really disappointed this year.
Lol, sorry, first thing I thought of when I read your post. I think it's a good balance for those people staying on the couch and not having to move, to the people that go to a retail store and browse for deals/products. Keeps everyone happy.
I don't really look back at the Xbone announcement as innovation. Sure, there were definitely some in there but they came with too many strings attached, and the whole package was so tone deaf to what their customers wanted that it was ridiculous. Forced Kinect that made the price $500 and daily online DRM check-ins.
Nothing is innovative about Battlefront 2 or its attempts to entice customers to buy lootboxes.
Well you still see residual elements of what they were trying to do. The online aspect was tied to having a shared game collection. I know many people on here take advantage of that. You also see the incentive of shared gaming collections with the Play Anywhere titles now. Buying digital throws a wrench into the works when you can also play those games with cross-save compatibility on PC & Xbox One. Tbh, I liked the Kinect, even liked it when it was on the 360 - was a great party machine and actually lost weight running through the Kinect Adventure 3D Pong like mini-game - and felt the internet blew that one out of proportion (like the SW:BFII microtransaction issue, ME: A bugs/ animation glitches). The digital catalog, the Game Pass, can be seen as the evolving idea of what Microsoft had to go with the launch of the XB1. Phil said on Podcast Unlocked that people always think there were different people who designed the XB1S but there wasn't, same design/engineer crew.
Seeing the first banner saga on sale is great. I've been wanting to pick that up since I got the second one for free via GwG
I also got excited, clicked on the link and went oh right I already paid for it back then as I didn't think it would go on sale. I still haven't played it. I played TBS2 for a few hours and liked what I played though. *Insert Homer Doh.gif
I finally bit on the Ezio Collection. I've been on an AC kick the last couple years. I started off with Black Flag and I've played all the newer entries ever since, except for Unity, which I own but haven't started yet. Syndicate and Origins were fucking fantastic games, especially Origins. I encourage everyone to buy that one when you get a chance.
See that's the reason I still don't have the Halo: MCC or this Ezio Collection as I have all the other games already in my collection. I'm also passing on the Bioshock Collection for the same reason. Don't get me wrong though all these are excellent. The AC games area all gold when you can pick em up for sub $10 (cents version for Unity lol).
I'm happy to pick up the DLC to Deus Ex: HR. 89 cents for 4-6 hours of a good game that a lot of people probably got for free from GWG. It also completes a dumb whole in the story of the base-game. Go out and get this one.
Also got excited, clicked link, then realized oh yeah I bought that and still haven't played it. *Insert Captain Picard Facepalm.jpg
Surprised no one mentioned the Xbox One Middle-earth: Shadow of War: Gold Edition for $9.99 at Walmart. Dead now. I missed it. I blame you guys :P
I saw it on FB 7 minutes after it was posted and it was dead already.
