Yeah I thought about heading out to Best Buy for some PUBG discounts, but where I'm at now the $6 would be $3 in gas and since it's just a digital code in a box I'm staying home. 

Since it's a code in a case, you can start the download before you leave the parking lot.

Anyone think that maybe since PUBG will be in “preview”, that there maybe like an hour demo or something?

No.  Too much hype.  Too many people willing to spend the money to try it out without a demo blowing sales.  Look for a demo in a few months from now...possibly.

FYI, Best Buy has their promo right now where you get $10 back for any in-store pick up purchase of $10 or more, so that might sweeten the pot for you...

at launch no, but the culling had a demo so I think its possible we get one in a few months when the hype starts to settle

Ahh, wtf, TA still hasn't recognized I finished Episode 1 of The Walking Dead. This is annoying.

I always have an issue with TA and the Tell Tale games, I'll beat the whole game and like one random achievement for complete Chapter 3 will be missing for like a week and then magically scan.

The NZ players were saying there is a trial like normal. No achievements yet either, the normal early access stuff.

Are you doing for the Day 1 completion on the 12 Days? Because the way TA is set up, only the 360 version would be "complete" after only Episode 1.

Yeah, I thought they had to have a trial in Early Access? Has any game not had one?

It did, but I doubt anybody put much time into playing through it. Nostalgia for old games is interesting to me - I’ve been a gamer for almost 40 years and nearly every time I revisit an old game I used to love, it doesn’t hold up anymore. I’m surprised that companies still buy into fan demand for nostalgia because 9 out of 10 times, the remaster that everyone’s been clamoring for flops after release. Mostly because we remember the game being better than it really was.
I mean, a ton of people got Rare Replay for free from the mixer promo, but how many of those people are still actively playing that?


I thought they put out a Goldeneye remake in 2011 for Wii,360 and PS3 and it bombed lol.

Ah yeah, I know where you are. I could've sworn you could save after that tank battle...watch this video around 18:00 or so when he's fighting the tank

Spoiler

That player has some kind of ability or glitch that allowed him to beat those two soldiers before the helicopter and "magnetically" get the life powerups at the steps. I can only save before I encounter those two enemies (a fence blocks me from returning until the helicopter is destroyed).

 

Otherwise, my chances usually last 5-10 seconds because their missiles know exactly where I am landing and I die in 1-2 hits. My life potions are also limited.

There was a couple other James Bond games, that I didn't think were too bad really, but no Goldeneye remake. There was an Xbox Live Arcade port of Goldeneye that was well into development but the rumor was that Nintendo of Japan killed the deal a couple months from release. There is some clips on youtube.

There was a remake and came out in 2010. It featured, for obvious reasons, Daniel Craig instead of Pierce Brosnan.

I really dislike they way people name drop old video games for some type of ‘credibility’ as a gamer. It’s pretty cringeworthy. I remember years ago, everybody talking about Konami’s fabled ‘Snatcher’. It was a total piece of shit that almost nobody played when it first came out, but got this cult reputation because it was scarce. Never met anyone else who actually played it. It really makes me laugh that anybody is waiting for Shenmue III. Right, like you actually slogged through I and II...

Yeah lol I had them rescan me because I thought that'd help.

Ahh that's it, was the XB1 version. Crap, I already did the 360 version a while ago.

I'm just going to do Pneuma: Breath of Life I guess.

Anyone ever have xbox live connection problems like this: every once in a while I will turn my xbox on and it won't be connected to live and when trying to reconnect it fails and only reconnects on a hard boot. Sometimes I can test the connection and it will say it's all good but still doesn't show anything other than the home screen as if I wasn't connected.

Just caused myself to decide to quit the TA challenge. Wasted an hour getting an achievement offline and it hasn't popped since reconnecting and it's a collectible one so it's not immediately repeatable. Completely my dumb fault.

Yes! Happens to me often. Happened on my S and now on my X too. So annoying.

I'm with you on that one. You know what else made laugh, the reaction from the crowd at E3 2014 when the Shenmue III kickstarter campaign was announced. The camera caught the reaction from a few kids all excited despite the fact I'm pretty sure never actually played the older games because they were too young at the time (maybe not even born), OR, had a PS2 instead of a Dreamcast lime most people did in the late 1990's and early 2000's..

 

I was literally talking to myself out loud at the screen: "Yeah right, you've NEVER played Shenmue and probable never heard of it until a few days earlier when the whole thing leaked. GTFO here".

 

Like Jeff Gertsmann once referred to Shenmue: "It's a fucking bullshit forklift simulator for assholes". LOL

How do you have yours set up? I thought maybe it was because I'm on wifi through an extender but so is my roommate and I've never heard him complain about this problem. I don't think it ever happened with my OG X1, only on my S.

So if I pre-ordered it earlier around when it was first available, I'm screwed out of this deal?

I predict a good one next week, but tonight, I think we will need a fair amount of booze to not end this date talking about politics and cheeseburgers.
