Multi-quote post incoming:

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. 

8db99ee4758e36b878d954bd385841606629afaa

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.  :cry:

According to this link, the directors cut includes that DLC, so yes those who got it from GWG already have it.

I haven't played any of the Dishonored games but I'm eyeing the Dishonored complete pack since it sounds like I should play the first one before I play the second; and if I'm gonna play the second I might as well play the expansion. Anyone want to talk me out of it, or am I making the right decision?

 

I'll also finally pick up the Blood & Wine Witcher 3 DLC in anticipation of the game's One X enhancement and me finally getting back to the vanilla version of the game I bought and only barely played however many years ago it came out. I traded the disc to go digital but I still have the Best Buy steelbook (empty except for the soundtrack) sitting in my cabinet, along with the collector's guide and the first expansion that came with the Gwent deck. Still salty I missed out on the second DLC Gwent package.

I think this one is more about how you feel about Telltale than GoG. I will say Telltale has done well with the property. If you like TT games you'll likely like this as well. But if you don't like TT games this is not the one that will change your mind. Hope that helps.

I did like Wolf Among Us and what I’ve played of Tales from the Borderlands.

Does anybody know for how long this newest XBL sales would last?  Would it go straight through Black Friday or might it end this weekend?

From the few games that I've looked at from the sale they say they expire in 4 days.

I *think* that may just be because it will open up to non-Gold members at that time. Pretty sure they will go through next weekend.

Picked up Tomb Raider Anniversary, Legend and Fable Anniversary.

Don’t know what else I want.

Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration seems like a good one. I might get that. Been waiting on a good sale and it comes w/ all the DLC.

 

Was considering Michonne, but thinking that it'll be a GwG title at some point. Telltalle often gives their games away.

Makes sense. Didn't think about that. :)

I honestly don't know what it is that they are showing us on the website (search results here, product page here), but I am pretty sure that this isn't the Director's Cut of DE:HR.  That game isn't available for purchase digitally.  If you're seeing something other than what I'm seeing please share! :)

I think that's the companion app.  I don't think there's a digital version of DC, despite being backwards compatible.

A xbox forums thread (link) states:

 

Updated 5/10/2016 - Removed Deus Ex: The Director's Cut and all DLC should now be supported.

 

But yeah I haven't found a way to get it installed, even though it says it's free with smartglass. I'm going to assume we don't have it afterall like you are saying. Sorry, I can be wrong, I'm ok with that anytime. lol.

Sounds about right. All the games are connected and they're very fun and it's one of the few games where I decided to change play styles about a quarter in (into low chaos and no kills) and had alot of fun doing so and I'm usually pretty damn shitty at stealth games, but can do manual saves whenever in the game.

 

Duke Nukem worth $2?

lolololol no

Hey squad, I just got a free $10 xbox gift card in my email!

Idk if this for everyone, and it might be very YMMV, but it's worth a shot to check your emails!

Any reason to get Battlefield Revolution over the two-pack?

 

I already have Battlefield, but only 5 more (15 for season pass alone) for on demand seems an OK deal.

Outside of the first two TWD games those are the best Telltale series. Everything I have read or watched online suggests a big NO when it comes to GoG. Watch the ACG review on YouTube. He reviewed each episode.

It wasn't worth 3 and could barely play an hour of it. But I bought it again at 2. It's really, really bad. But nostalgia.
