Bought refunct and can confirm it’s 30 minutes long, but it’s also very worth the price. It’s one of the more relaxing games I’ve played, as it has an addicting zen like quality due to the great music, simple design, and smooth as butter gameplay. Could see myself replaying multiple times.

Console E105 00000000 8007045D error the night before PUBG. Lovely.

Factory reset has fixed it for now. Project Scorpio Edition.

 

Nothing for me this week sale wise.

Mobile gaming during colonoscopy prep gets old real fast. I was just told I’m being banished to a hotel with my Xbox next time.

I wonder if I rather have a story driven game or crazy action. I guess I can combine both for Wolfenstein.

Anyone not seeing the hour trial on PUBG?

Once PUBG is available in your region, a store listing for the digital version of the game will appear on the Microsoft Store. Through the listing, the title will be available for purchase, alongside a one-hour free trial.

Unfortunately, it’s out in the US and I don’t see the hour trial.

Maybe those people were wrong, but I swear they were saying they were using trials earlier. Maybe they took it off the store for now to avoid clogging up the servers as much. My download keeps starting and stopping.

My download is done but just sitting at the title screen doing the connecting, reconnect, could not connect over and over. Figured this is exactly how this would play out no way they were going to meet actual server stress.

And of course, being in preview still gives them an out when things aren’t smooth sailing.

I figured as much, things smooth out over the next few days. That's why I figured I'd wait a few hours and grab the digital codes off Amazon for 20% off instead plus get some sexy stickers and a cardboard box.

I got into the character creator once, but couldn't get past that screen. Only a 5.2 gig file size so that's a positive. 

 

 

 

edit: so I got in for a few rounds so far and I'm pretty impressed with playing on an xbox controller, my main concern was the aiming and I think they really did a great job with it. Inventory is kind of a mess with equipping scopes and what not. Protip, to load your gun it's hold down x for a couple seconds, same to reload, not quite a fan of that but they are limited to the amount of buttons I suppose.

Are you serious? Shenmue 1 & 2 were popular Dreamcast games with a dedicated following that played the games long enough to find the 'bad endings' and unearth all kinds of weird easter eggs and shit.  I personally went through both games several times, even bought Shenume II  on both Dreamcast and Xbox. I'm not going to pretend they were the pinnacle of gaming, but they are still very enjoyable games with amazing moments.
 
And of course you never met anyone who played Snatcher, there were only like 5 copies released in the US. The Metal Gear references is the only reason any mainstream publication mentions it.


Shenmu 1 is a masterpiece. I never beat 2, but I remember it being good.

Snatcher is popular now for a lot of reasons.
1) Rarity
2) Kojima
3) It's HEAVILY influenced by Blade Runner

The dude who is claiming no one played through Shenmu 1&2 is an idiot.

The number of times Contrast has been on sale for the 360 kinda makes it a definite shoe in for GWG especially with that 80% off discount this week .

 

And I'm sure next week all our prayers will be answered with the greatest sale of all time!

If you actually read what I posted, idiot, was that some of the guys the camera caught (over)reacting to the Shenmue III Kickstarter campaign announcement during the Sony E3 2015 conference were not or didn't look old enough to have played Shenmue 1 or 2....ever. I never said no one played them at all.

I played a bit of the second on the Xbox since it was borrowed to me and decided to give it a try for kicks. Sadly, I didn't know nor care what was about. Though at that point, my disdain towards Japanese games was so big, a forklift simulator was not going to make me change my mind. Don't care if people consider them "masterpieces", the second one bored the shit out of me long enough back in late 2004 or early 2005 that I dropped it like a bad habit and never went back. No regrets.

But, I know I'm in the minority.

After having played the pc version for hours and hours and not getting a chicken dinner, my first game on Xbox it was me and another guy having a shootout. He got me. I was #2.

I want to cry.

I don’t know. You seem offended by someone stating that a lot of people who namedrop the Shenmue games never actually played them, and that they were boring. But it sounds like you played them and never finished them...maybe because they were not compelling to play and took forever to complete? That sounds like the opposite of what most would consider a masterpiece... As someone who played, finished and still owns a copy of Snatcher, I can tell you it’s mediocre.

Ha I've been #2 on PC a handful of times and have always choked doing something dumb. So far my best is a #10 but I did manage to get to a "drop crate" for the first time ever, got a Groza and Ghillie suit and died from the blue zone :(

Yah, once I got that complete a game achievement completion out of the way I'm flying. Day 2 I got the Versus tags from vote online in FM6 (lol yeah I usually played that solo believe it or not) and own the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2RS in FM7, (which was chump change). I actually spent more on the 2015 McLaren P1 GTR for completing tier 13 in the game, although they did give me a discount lol. Onto Day 3 before I hit the hay tonight/this morning lol.

To each their own, never felt I had any issues controlling Lucky and found it far from being a bad game. Better than games like Yooka Laylee that’s for sure.

Agreed

I don't know if Shenmue 1 was "amazing" back in the day, but I do know that Shenmue II didn't grab me at all. Maybe one day when I'm really bored, I'll go back to it.
 

I'll also say this, Shenmue 3 has got to make a lot of changes from Shenmue I. I watched Giant Bomb's endurance run of it recently and *whew*. Let's just say games have come a long way since then. I know I'd have never made it through playing it, only the 'witty banter' got me through watching it. But hey, what else were they making anyway?

Is Okami a disc or a code in a case? I was going to get it at BB with a reward cert and GCU, but dummy me issued a $15 cert and the store pickup incentive discount makes the game 14.99 so it won't friggin work with it.

I ordered Okami and PUBG from BB, and set it up to have my Mom pick it up for me, and I didn't get the $1 pick up in person discount. Do I just suck? It seems like too much work to complain for just $2. At very least, I will not subject my Mom to try to negotiate for $2.

The other DLC, "End of Zoe", is also up for $15 or "free" for those with the season pass.

Done with the semester and 75% done with my Master's. Let the gaming begin!

 

Finished Strider, it's nice and short but fun while it lasts. Glad I didn't actually buy it since I don't see myself coming back to it, but it's very good.

 

Torn between Mass Effect 2 replay and Fallout 4. Now's the time for Fallout, but I'm always legitimately afraid of starting games like that because they are so easy to sink time into.
