Mafia III Collector's Edition for $25. $1.99 shipping.

Link


Just wanna let you know this did not go unnoticed. Finally bit - thanks.

I wanted to look into picking up the Victor Vran bundle that was on sale, but working open-close Sat-Sun-Mon wipes me the hell out, and deals wrapping at Tue 5 AM CST these days instead of noon has wrecked my last-minute impulse buying habits.
Oh well.

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

Day 12: LEAP FROG

 

You need to unlock twelve achievements, each with a higher ratio and in a different game than the last.

 

This is going to take some planning.

There we go. One that will pose some challenge.

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.


Yeah, if only older consoles still worked today so any generation could play any previous generations games.

There's literally a DVD that comes with the second game that plays the cinematics and explains the story of the first game. But, your disdain for forklifts was so strong you probably didn't notice.

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.


Nah, offended by someone pretending to know what they're talking about.

I beat the first game multiple times and when the second one came out I wasn't as into gaming so I never finished it. The first one didn't take forever to beat, at least not for me when I was 11-12. You just made a shit ton of assumptions and put a lot of words in my mouth, congrats.

Would b easier if it could be the same game...so I have to play 12 different games and also have  a lookout on the TA Ratio...which can easily change when it's only about 0.01 difference we are talking about here...hmm. Best start with a 1.01 Achievement

So the discussion on the website is that it only needs to be a min of 2 game that you can alternate back and forth.  That makes it easier I guess. I have a lot of unplayed games I started for a Bean Dive so I should be ok on this challenge actually.

Today's Gearsmas is Double XP.

 

 

Overwatch's Winter Wonderland should start today, hopefully pretty soon. I think events usually start around 2 pm EST-ish but I don't remember for sure.

 

-return of Mei's Snowball Fight with some tweaks and a second map

-Yeti Hunt mode which is 5 Mei vs 1 Winston. Description sounds like Evolve Lite.

-Christmas updates for one new map and the same ones from last year

-Lots of new skins and all the old stuff returning.

 

 

Bungie admitted they blew it with locking off so much content if you don't buy DLC, and backpedaled on most of it, while giving an explanation for why certain things will remain locked off. They finally did go the route on a lot of things of only locking you out if it's actually content from the DLC. They're also making the Prestige achievement available to all again, but reverting the original raid.

 

Since nothing of this sort ever really happened with D1, I think it's clear that the big backlash in the community and (probably much more importantly) the refusal to buy the DLC and/or large amount of refunds of the base game actually got them to react.

Don't remember as this was more than 12 perhaps 13 years ago, a friend of mine left the country for a full year and lent me her Xbox while she was away. Shenmue II was one of the games she had along with others. Still, I didn't care for the game back then and don't care for it now.

 

However, if you're excited for Shenmue III, then be excited. Don't get all worked up just because someone else doesn't share your love for those games.

Yeah, I think it was mainly the refunds.  Money talks.

 

Bungie locked content behind the DLC in D1 as well, but the main difference this time, in addition to the pent up disappointment/frustration in this sequel, is that achievements/trophies were locked behind the DLC.  That was not the case in D1.  This was a "legitimate" reason to ask Microsoft/Sony for a refund as you couldn't complete (i.e., get all the achievements for) the base game.

Does anyone know when the prize for the Xbox Quest is sent out? I haven't seen anything yet and last month is the first I've completed it.

 

update - after reading a few other players not receiving their rewards I found an answer that pretty much stated Xbox has the entire month to send the prizes out. So they basically won't have any answers until Jan 1 for November quests.

I discovered that they "sent" me a couple of add-ons for a couple of games I don't own.

I was in my MS account and saw them in the recent purchases.

Saw two interesting articles on TA just now:

 

Zen is releasing a temporarily free two pack of tables for FX3: Carnivals and Legends.  Free thru December 19th.  Link isn't working right now.

 

Sword Coast Legends is getting delisted at the end of December and it will go on sale next week at 60% off making it $4.

 

Not from TA, but Shenmue was a groundbreaking and ambitious game in a way similar to Fable since both had grand dreams and pushed envelopes, but both had their shortcomings and unfulfilled promises.  Lots of people played it, but it definitely wasn't for everyone.

What add-ons and for which games?  (I'm assuming everyone gets the same rewards?)

And people were actually getting a refund over that? My license for PES 2017 was taken away from my account and I was basically told "tough luck" by Xbox Support and no refund issued.

If they are Warframe Exclusive Prestige Pack IV and FM7 E3 Race Suit then it's from watching the Game Awards Show from Mixpot.

Yeah, download link for tables:
https://www.microsof...ds/9N4J8Z300Z65
Trailer, got a Funhouse vibe from Carnival & Gorgar vibe from Zeus table:

Available now until the 19th.

 

Also got D3 almost done, two 3.0 ratio achievements already accomplished and one more to go. I got it when I went with the hotseat achievement in Trackmania Turbo & I Dare You for FM6, which uses the Back to the Pack (a Super Rare mod) to achieve a win from last place. The mod was only available via luck and I had to throw in 12 million credits to find it. Luckily, considering some of the people who pointed it out on TA that they had to spend up to 48M before they got the mod. Wow...

Ok, need one more 3.0 ratio achievement.

The Carnivals & Legends add-on comes with 2 tables (Adventure Land & Son of Zeus)

 

It's free on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, Win10 and Steam. Not iOS or Android.

 

Yep, Pinball FX3 is now on Nintendo Switch.

Looks like they have Stern Pinball on there too.

That's a really good deal on Styx, especially if you've got someone to co-op it with

Thanks for pointing out it had co-op. That's basically an instant buy for me. Always looking for games to play with my girlfriend.

 

Sorry if already mentioned, but just got the YouTube update on my One X and it's finally 4K... Fuck yeah!

Which one? I just found out yesterday there are two different Youtube apps on the One.

There's YouTube (now 4K) and YouTube TV (live TV/DVR service)

I don't pay for or use YouTube TV so not sure if that does 4K as well.

I just want them to fix the damn Netflix app. It’s totally screwed up still, at least on the X but I think all consoles that support HDR by putting everything in HDR mode and things that aren’t look like shit. As I’ve mentioned before my Samsung TV’s app looks miles better in comparison (even the video that is HDR).

The Mixpot rewards appeared in my Ready to Install on my main account. My wife's account was logged in at the same time, and she got Goat Simulator and the Kinsano Leader Pack sent as redeemable codes. Weird that only select accounts got the rewards as codes(?)

 

I'd much rather prefer codes so I can give away the stuff I'll never use. I'm one of the few people that actually paid for Goat Simulator and I still never finished it.

I guess I didn't get the Mixpot, unless they're being distributed in waves. I haven't received a message, and I don't have anything showing up in my account. This would be the first time I've missed it though, so maybe it's still coming.

This has been a Top 3 most-want backward compatibility title for me for a year and a half.

 

Amazon had a Xbox 360 code page up for many EA titles (not for sale) including DA2 before E3 2016 with a release date of July 1st 2016 that said "works with Xbox One" ... but took the DA2 page down shortly thereafter.  Makes me sad just thinking about it.
