Much like a lot of celebrities, it’s unfortunate when you think, “yeah that person is on the same wavelength as me, I get them”, and then they open their mouth (or type something in this case) and wow, nope, different planet completely. Sigh.

This should be on the mind of every fan of online games, including those who like deals.  Frivolity is 99% of the content here.  You can handle a few people talking about the death of the internet for a day or two on CAG.

I don't think they were talking about the net neutering.


The game sucks? Yeah? OK. Tell me about the achievements/trophies.

Week 1 of PSN sales either has me jaded with cheapness or I have too many games, but I don't feel too impressed by the deals?

 

Also I bought Resident Evil 7 Gold Edition and Okami this week. YOU'RE WELCOME CAPCOM! NOW POWER STONE COLLECTION PLEASE!

I've never had more fun with a racing game then Forza horizon 3.
I've been doing a bucket list challenge in a construction zone.

This whole challenge has been just to drive crazy in the construction z. I have it on cockpit mode and it's raining. The graphics and physics are just amazing.

In having so much fun just driving through this construction zone tearing stuff up.

I'm going to spend many hours with this one.

No, but in all seriousness, congrats on enjoying it, it's a really fun game.

My game pass prize was a copy of the assassins creed movie, I have no interest in it so if any of the regulars wants it let me know!

Thanks, Pat, for giving the movie away.

 

I Have worse movies in my collection so I'll take it if no wants it.

Thanks, Bardockkun, for passing it on to me since I pm'ed him a minute before your post.

 

Happy Holidays to both of you and everyone on this thread.

I said regulars not lurkers and you got it anyway so no worries

Just finished the TA 12 days of Christmas. Dead or alive 5 and rare replay really helped a lot. It was fun. The only 1 I got stuck on was the 10 achievements worth 10 each, until I downloaded dead or alive and got all 10 in about 5 minutes

Lol, went to Minesweeper, Reckless Racing and Pac-Man Championship Edition DX on Win10 to grab some rare achievements. Then I was playing Gems of War and reached lvl 250 - Rare achievement unlocked. OK, they must have added that with the last update.

 

So I mistakenly refreshed the page on TA, thinking I'd just get my homepage back again, but I lastly sent in a scan request (so I just resent another scan request). Now I have to wait 24 hours lol. Doh

Hmmm... first time I've been referred to as a lurker. I am active andI always post my gratitude to others whether I get something or not. Oh, well.

Played my first round of battlegrounds. Glad I found a spot to land with no one else, had to figure out the controls for a minute. Had a bit of jank, but nothing worse than when I first got it on pc. Ended up in 8th place.

Saw on XBA and TA that ultimate chicken horse is finally coming to xbox. Played it at pax East last year and had a lot of fun. My friend with a PS4 picked it up months ago on there and we usually play it when there are a few people over and have a lot of fun.

Been playing Gears 4 all this week and I really do love that game. I'm by no means good at MP but it's fun, nonetheless. Also, I think the matchmaking is pretty solid. They consistently match me with similar players and I can go 1:1 even as I do dumb shit and suck at using the gnasher.
 

Eye witness testimony is about the least reliable form of evidence. Movies make it seem like a big deal, but people misremember constantly. The point of having a justice system is so that people's lives aren't ruined merely by accusations. Not that anyone cares anymore. :/


Battlefront 2 update today is supposed to fix afk farming and rubberbanding (from lag, not actual rubberbands for afk farming). Also Finn & Phasma to be added.

Overwatch holiday event just dropped as well. New Evolve style asymmetrical game mode, putting 5 Mei hunters vs Winston.

Hopefully Finn and Phasma are cool. I'm glad they're doing events but I'm disappointed in the Last Jedi event so far. It's just extra quests and there isn't really any way to see what faction is doing what or who's winning. I was hoping for something more fleshed out, like in For Honor. I'll have to check out the Overwatch event, too. Too many games!

As far as the other stuff re: eye witnesses (spoilered for those who don't care)

What is with this dumb ass culture on this site of referring to people as ‘lurkers’ and acting as though they shouldn’t get equal access to things being given away because they don’t have some arbitrary level of participating or posting? If you’re giving something away to people visiting the site, why do you care who gets it? Why does someone have to ‘earn’ the right to have it? I will always post the entire code when I have something to give away, hoping a ‘lurker’ gets it because I hate this shitty cliqueish attitude.

I'm assuming it's used in hopes that those who give things away may consider another method in the future. I can't tell you how many times someone will post something like "if anyone happens to have an extra code for whatever I'd love to have it" and then literally the next post will be "free (whatever previous poster was asking about) to whoever wants it". I get that it's a lot easier to post a code and still feel good about yourself but I have seen the scenario I described play out way too much to where I personally will never take that approach.

Totally agree! In the past I've fallen in the Telltale trap primarily for achievements, but Tales from the Borderlands is great; I'm up to episode 4 and it's the best one I've played so far.

I just finished episode 4, I don’t think I’ve laughed as hard at a game as I did during the accountant fight!

Well ultimately it's to encourage participation and discourse right. I suppose you need to say if the item that's up for grabs is of any value. Usually it is, digitally wise or a neat little addition for a game someone wants to play/is enjoying playing. For people that are regulars it's a nice bonus. CAG should have a raffle system in place and users could place their free codes and what not into it. Just my 2 cents.

+1 for the good guy I guess
But I would rather offer the free stuff I don’t want to the people who post here on a regular basis and contribute to this very small niche community. Shame on me i guess.
Or not
Yes I would definitely rather give it to someone whom contributes and keeps this thread fun and active. Someone’s who posts I can read and react too.

Are we expecting or just hoping for a good sale right before Christmas? I'm new to holiday sales.

  

There is usually some kind of big Christmas sale, about on par with the Black Friday stuff generally.

  

Has the "countdown to new years" sale been going on? I remember it was a thing on the 360 but can't remember if it's happened recently.

  

The countdown to New Years sale is always good

Just a guess, but I think we've had a couple of meh "deals of the weak", to build up the end of the year sale. Pretty sure the last few end of the year sales have been pretty good. With many games on sale. Usually calling it the "biggest sale ever"

Hope we get more DLC than we've been getting, but not getting my hopes up. I kind of regret getting the basic version of injustice 2 and don't want to pay $40 for all DLC. Could also use the non hot wheels FH3 DLC.

Anyone know if RE7 got its X update? I got in on that gold edition glitch at Best Buy. But I have it on PS4 as well so haven’t opened it yet because I’m wondering if I will find time to play through what I already played again.

Then again the newly found graphics whore in me wants to play it X enhanced. :)

There is no date yet. It's "in development" . Was really disapointed because I wanted to play it this week, at least the new DLC. Edit: Correction, coming soon which supposedly means in the next 30ish days.

 

BTW encase anyone was wondering the For Honor dedicated servers are going through beta tests "soon". So there will be dedicated servers...eventually.

 

I can't stop playing PUBG despite the input lag, frame drops and inventory management that gives me massive anxiety because I'm afraid someone is going to blow me away when I'm busy looting.


... go to sleep.

Holy crap did I get lucky at Target yesterday....

I found Rise of the Tomb raider, Return to Arkham (both xb1) and Lego Star Wars TFA (360) for $9.98.

I also got a copy of Battle Chasers Nightwar for XB1 and PS4, and Naruto Shippuden 4 Road to Boruto w/season pass for $14.98 each!

Hope everyone finds some deals like these this holiday season!

 

I also saw Just Dance 2017 Gold and regular edition for $15. (Syberia 3 was $25 and Kingdom Hearts 1.5+2.5  was $20 not really deals yet but they were there.)

I'm not sure how you're blaming Pai for "covering things up." Is he supposed to believe the 300,000 forms in favor, or those against? Not defending the guy, he's clearly a corporate shill, just not sure what anyone could do with that "information."

Ugh. I hate it when something 80% of people are in favor of keeping getting brought to a vote until enough people lose interest for it to finally get voted down. I know when Pai brought it up this last time my reaction was "this again?" How many times do we have to tell you that we don't want ISPs to throttle certain connections at their whim?

He could slow down and take a look to see if the comments were bogus.  Maybe setup a new comment system that isn't completely broken and see what the public really thinks.  Thing is he doesn't care.   I would be shocked if NN doesn't pass today.

Honestly do think I’ve spent more time with FH3 than all other racing games combined.

I know I have.  Never put more then an hour into any of them before.   I hate driving in most games.

Is Horizon 3 worth the upgrade if you’re just playing around with 2?

It is better for sure but they are similar.  Forzathons are usually fun and a reason to fire the game up every week for me.  There is a nice FH3 Demo which lets you play for several hours IRC.  That is what convinced me to pick it up this time last year.  A year later I am still playing it once a week. Granted not as much as I was a few months ago but still enjoy firing it up.
