Checked, didn't get it but had a Microsoft Rewards email that had one quiz question about the heaviest turkey recorded at.

Spoiler
How the hell would that one fly, lol, it doesn't that's how.


Don't know why but this made me laugh. I had the same quiz.

Haven't bought anything yet. It's a big sale. I just don't have anything I really want. I'll likely pick up Mafia III, just because I kept the season pass out of the deluxe edition from Target before I sold the game, so I may as well own the game digitally.

I just have so many digital games in the backlog already that I'll likely never play that I just can't get excited about buying more shit.

I was going to buy a PS4 from GS on BF, but now I'm not even sure I'll do that. I'm only really wanting to play HZD and Uncharted 4. That's not much gaming for buying an entire console...

I’m on the same boat. I’ve been active in playing games because of the Goals like the game pass goals and gold goals where you play selected games to get a mystery reward. The game pass goal is pretty easy this month, play a retro game for 10hrs to get the best reward, the least is only like 5hrs I think. I’ll only do the goal if it’s easy. Without these goals, I haven’t had an urge to try to cut down my Xbox One digital game backlog.

I almost bit on a PS4 Slim CoD WWII edition because it was only $220 at AAFES military online store during Veterans Day sale. But I ended up getting an 2017 iPad 9.7 instead lol. I figured the iPad would get more use because I watch things more, browse and do simple edits for photos/vids using my iPhone 5s so I wanted a bigger more powerful iDevice that’s in my budget.

Just like last gen, I also had backlog for my PS3 since I played on the 360 more. I still have BF unopened PS3 games lol. I guess I’ll just focus on the Xbox One and get the X down the line if anything. With game sharing and the year worth of game pass I got free at Xbox Fanfest, and GwG games and getting free Xbox money on Bing, I’m pretty much set. I’m thinking about getting EA Access too, we’ll see. There’s a PS4 Slim 1TB and a Uncharted bundle at the NEX or Navy Exchange military store for $179 for BF. It’s pretty tempting but I dunno.

Duke Nukem worth $2?

I'd say so. Overall the game is bad but if you like Duke 3D you'll probably at least like the opening few levels. The game did feel dated when it came out, I can't even imagine how dated it feels now. As a whole it will probably depend on if you think Duke himself is funny, personally I think they played him too straight for how much of a relic the character actually is.

 

About half-way through they clearly ran out of idea so it becomes pretty mediocre. PC version is better if you have the option for the fact that they removed the two weapon limit alone. At the very least, you could pay the $2 and really make Wolfenstein or Doom look even better since they're both miles and miles ahead as far as rebooted classic FPS series are, or even Duke's contemporary, Shadow Warrior.

 

I wish Duke 3D World Tour was like $5 or something, that'd be a higher recommendation even though I haven't played it yet.

Just in case anyone's as dumb as me, the discount only shows on the Fable Anniversary game if you click on the button that lists it for $40.

 

Does the Fable Anniversary BC edition give you a way to buy the DLC? (Still new to the Xbox ecosystem)

I did not realize Anniversary even had DLC, that's pretty bullshit.

 

But yeah, any game that becomes BC also brings the DLC to BC. You should be able to still buy off the website, or sometimes through the game itself if it had a menu for it. I think you can even search for it on your Xbone itself either in the store or through the browser and should be able to buy it there too.

 

If you're totally new to Xbox, I'd look at getting this Trilogy version. It gives you all three games for just $5 more than Anniversary alone, and they're all BC. If you already played them before then feel free to skip, as this doesn't include any bonuses.

Man, I'm addicted to Battlefront 2's multiplayer, it's a blast! As for the FF15 talk, it's fun, it's not a great Final Fantasy game, there are problems like the summon system being garbage and the side quests, I enjoyed it until I started doing all the side quests that pretty much made me start hating it, I would say do the main story and then like the dungeons and SOME side stuff and you'd probably enjoy it more.

Duke Nukem worth $2?

Easily, I got way more then $2 out of it.

Still doing some X testing. Played the original Mirror’s Edge and holy crap does it look amazing. Think it looks better than some Xbox One games. Simply incredible that they did that for the X.

Anyone play The Sexy Brutale?  Looks interesting just never heard of it.

I bought it during a previous sale, because the premise looked really unique and seemed like it had so much potential.

I had actually been waiting for it to go on sale; watching for it every single week, so I was pretty hyped.

 

Overall, I would say it was a decent game.  Not nearly as creative as I expected.  Without spoiling too much, you play as a dude who is trying to prevent murders.  The entire game takes place in one in-game "day," and the day repeats over and over, Groundhog's Day style.  You take what you've learned in previous days to make better decisions in future days.

 

The game had so much potential to be so creative.  But, honestly, even though I played the game only a couple months ago, I am finding it hard to remember any of the "solutions."  The groundhogs day style of gameplay is almost wasted considering how tame the puzzle-solving is.  I wont spoil any unless you really want me to.

 

Couple things that need special mention:

1.  Your character moves so slowly.  There is no "run" button.  You trot along at what I would describe as "old man speed."  It is frustratingly slow.

2.  Going from one room to the next brought the game to a screeching halt.  Every time I switched rooms, it lagged for 5 or so seconds.  This game is not what I would call a graphical powerhouse, so I have no idea how it performed so poorly.  Couple that with the incredibly slow movement speed, and the task of moving from one side of the casino to the other often made me groan.

 

I dont regret the purchase; I like supporting indie games, and I got it on sale.  But it is largely forgettable and I would grant it a 7 out of 10.

Why buy these special dealer cars in Forza 7? Is it because you won’t get to 700 cars unless you do that?

Because if so that will make me do that.

There was a glitch earlier today where the digital version was $10 at WM.com. I'm pretty bummed that I missed it as was on my BF list.


Thank you based stick man.

Even though I downloaded the Bing app, yeah I just use Chrome on my phone and it works for me. Shrugs

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

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).

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.

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.

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

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).

Also got excited, clicked link, then realized oh yeah I bought that and still haven't played it. *Insert Captain Picard Facepalm.jpg

I saw it on FB 7 minutes after it was posted and it was dead already. :cry:

I would've thought there'd be Something decently priced in this sale that I'd have wanted too, but there's literally nothing. I still haven't pkayed those first two Wolfenstein games, so I'm not interested in the new one at that price. I can wait until it hits the ten dollar mark. The new AC has zero interest for me, and AC Syndicate is still over my buy price. Evil Within 2 is totally skippable because I have 1 but not played a second of it. Destiny 2 is still out of my price range. The rest are things I either already own or have no real interest in. I'd be buying something just to buy it because it's a BF sale. And I agree with others that the prices on a lot of the older bigger titles kinda suck in this sale. Most things are still $20 or $30 and they really should be five or ten cheaper on a BF sale. So there's just nothing on sale that I want.

If there's anything you really, Really think is a fantastic deal, lmk, because I'm just not seeing anything.

Haven’t watched Netflix much since getting the X but I can see why some reviewers have slammed the app. Guess it also was updated for the S and the PS4. But watched some of The Punisher and thought it looked off. Watched on my Samsung’s app and it looked amazing.

They really need to fix it. Know part of it is always being set to HDR even for non HDR shows, but The Punisher is HDR and still didn’t look good.

Sounds like a Netflix problem — not an X or MS problem.

I noticed that after a few recent updates the Netflix app seems to be worse. More sluggish or something off about it.  Also did you see the update about Vudu?

HDR10 Support Is Now Available On Vudu

Vudu has launched support for HDR10 on compatible Samsung and LG TVs, Xbox One S and X, and Roku 4K and Nvidia Shield devices. This is in addition to our already existing Dolby Vision HDR format support.

Now that we offer both HDR formats, Vudu users have access to more 4K + HDR movies across many more devices.

You can currently watch over 36 movies in HDR10, with more on the way. Users with HDR-capable devices will automatically receive the best possible format compatible with their 4K + HDR device.

Any movies that you have previously purchased on Vudu in 4K UHD that qualify for an HDR10 update will be viewable in 4K HDR.

Thank you for your continued support of Vudu. We look forward to bringing you many more movies in 4K + HDR across many more devices.


Thank you based stick man.

ReCore is one buggy piece of fucking shit. I gave up on this game for awhile to come back to play it with the X patch. I get to the end of one of the final levels and end up falling off. Keep in mind this is after I spent a good two hours trying to finish this battle.I work my way back to the area and the area previous to the battle is BLOCKED because enemies won't spawn. I try my save over. Nothing. I'm literally stuck in the area and can't get out without starting the entire dungeon level over. But guess what? Still bugged. Fuck this. I AM DONE.  I literally uninstalled the game, deleted my pin and hid it from my install list. I am never playing this game again. Recore 2 better be the most amazing/polished game in XBox history to grab my attention.

 

I thought I was alone, but after reading other forum posts on reddit ReCore has frustrated a lot of people. One would think the definitive edition would have fixed a lot of bugs but there are still some major ones.

 

I really wanted to like the game, and at one point I did till I ran into the later areas and insane amount of bugs. Ugh.

 

Oh yeah, still never beat the final boss in Hand's of Fate either. Screw that game as well. But at least I was beaten by a cheap boss rather then game breaking glitches.


... go to sleep.

Man, I'm addicted to Battlefront 2's multiplayer

Feeling the urge to gamble is normal, but as you build healthier choices and a strong support network, resisting cravings will become easier. When a gambling craving strikes: Avoid isolation. Call a trusted family member, meet a friend for coffee, or go to a Gamblers Anonymous meeting
