Went ahead and got the Destiny 2 deal at GS. $40 shipped with $35 in MS credit works for me! Started the campaign using a free Redbox rental, so I can at least finish that.

Can't decide if I should get fall of cybertron before it goes away, got devastation. Own fall on 360 but haven't played it yet. Is the X1 version much better?

Also contemplating upgrading Destiny 2 to digital with the expansion pass but don't know if I'd play it much. Anyone that has played the new dlc think it's a decent amount of content for someone that usually plays solo and not at max power level?

Not really, the new DLC CoO story portion can be beaten in 2-3 hours. Adventures and weapon quests add more content. The best part about it is the raid lair which for me is worth the price of admission. That said, the GS deal is a no brainer for anyone remotely interested in the game and season pass.

Thanks. I've basically only played iron banner since finishing the story. I think I was around 275 power level. If the raid lair is the best part I'll have to think on it a little longer, I haven't done the raid and don't really feel like dealing with a website to find a group.

I just bought the destiny 2 bundle from gamestop. 

the link in the order to season pass gives a code, which when entered into xbox.com redeems $35

 

weird

The base game is a disc they ship you later right?   I have Destiny 2 on PS4 with the first DLC.  I wouldn't mind switching to digital and getting the 2nd DLC for $35.  Trading in my disc for $14.30.  Still might be worth it to get the 2nd DLC

 

ETA:  Wouldn't save me too much.  $41.07 with tax and shipping.  Trade my copy for $14.30 (assuming it holds this value long enough for me to get my delivery).  $35 of credit (assuming they do the same on PS4) for $26.77.   Not worth the hassle for $8 and change.  If it was in store for this price maybe.  

 

Good deal for those who haven't bought it at all though.

Do you still get the EA Access discount on EA games during these sales? Sorry new to Xbox One.
Was looking at getting Star Wars Battlefront 2... Yes i know EA Sucks. pay to win. etc... Honestly only getting it for story mode.

I have a Target gift card that I was going to use to get the Buy 1 Get 1 25% off on Microsoft card.

Also got the Forza Horizon Expansion pass sale.

Shame Bulletstorm is 4k on Pro. An X patch would get me to buy.

Has anyone successfully received Minecraft Better Together by playing the original version for 5+ hours? I’ve played more than 6 hours and Better Together is still showing full price.

Yeah, I'm amazed how far NetherRealm was able to step it up with Injustice 2. Visually I think it blows everything else in the genre out of the water. It's especially impressive because of how wonky they've know to have their women looking in the past few games, and even how bad characters looked in a early videos for this game. 

 

As far as visuals, I think a lot of fighters are really doing great overall (Tekken 7, Street Fighter V, Dragonball FighterZ), it's just Capcom with MvC: Infinite that really dropped the ball, and the story compared to IJ2 is a joke.

 

Trying to decide if I should pick it back up now that the Ultimate version is $45. I like the gameplay but I think I'd hard drop it when Soul Calibur VI gets here.

It's good to see PUBG getting these rapid-fire patches. Sounds like they aren't just working on making the game not run like shit too. Weapon recoil lowered on all weapons for console is probably a big help, it's just so hard to correct on a controller, and acknowledgement of the "car meta" sounds good to me. Most Top 10's I've made it to have been a Mad Max scenario, with a bunch of cars circling each other as it's hard to kill someone in one before getting splattered.

 

They said more patches planned during the holidays too, does anyone know if Korea celebrates Christmas?

I'd like to see a Mortal Kombat 4k HDR Remaster using actors in the style of the original game.

It doesn't look like it. I'm signed in and usually when I check prices I see the EA Access discount. It's not showing for the sale items.

Edith Finch is a good game.. just short and by short, I mean it.. I played it over the summer on my PS4, 100% complete in just over 1hr 50mins ( and I thought I was taking my time too). The sound in the game is very well done too, atmospheric yet soothing. The ending is strange.

Thanks for the feedback.

 

I'll continue thinking about it for some time.  Hard to justify 13 bux on a two hour experience, no matter how good it is.

 

I have 15 Bing dollars burning a hole in  my pocket, but I should probably just save it for next year.

I know I"m buying Monster Hunter:  World on day 1 (digital so I can gameshare with my brother).

I'm also going to need to put out for season passes for South Park, Assassins Creed Origins, second season of FFXV...

 

Evil Within 2 doesn't have a season pass, but I assume it'll get some DLC.  They all do.

 

Which is fine.  I'm in the camp that actually mostly enjoys DLC.  If I like a game, I dont mind plopping down another 20 or 25 bux for more content.

 

Speaking of which...

 

*Assassins Creed season pass = 40 dollars, South Park Season Pass = 30 dollars*

 

Damn man, when the hell did these things get so expensive???  For shit's sake, I remember when the season pass was introduced.  To my recollection, Rockstar was the first one to do it for their game L.A. Noire.  You remember how much that season pass cost?  12.  Freakin. Dollars.

Edith Finch has GWG written all over it, after the string of short artsy indie games this year. I can wait.

High marks for the Witcher 3 patch from Digital Foundry:

http://www.eurogamer...-one-x-analysis

It does look gorgeous!



Haven’t started Edith Finch, but anxious to check it out. Technically, per Metacritic, it was the best reviewed Xbox One release of the year.

Observer is amazing, disturbing and you’ll be saying “WTF?” a lot if you play it. Starts out slow but get to that first sequence entering the mind of a person and...holy shit... (not a spoiler since the namesake is for the fact that you can “observe” the lives of others by connecting to an implant).

Aaero just got a 60fps/4k XB1X update, along with some new achievements for the DLC coming out shortly. You know, for the two of us that bought that game.

GWG? Maybe Game Pass. GWG is more for bottom-of-the-barrel indie games no one would spend 10 minutes on, let alone money. Edith is a decent indie game people would actually buy.

That's two more games I've bought but never launched (Tomb Raider Underworld and Army of Two). I really need to stop buying games for the backlog.

 

Is this the third Van Helsing game they've fed us through GWG?

They gave us the first one, the tower defense game and now the third one. Now, we are missing the second title.

Van Helsing is dope. Why the hate?

Oxenfree, Slime Rancher, The Turing Test, and Outlast definitely don't fit that description. I know a lot of people hated Gone Home, but what I've read about Edith Finch makes it sound very similar, and I enjoyed Gone Home as a freebie (although I'm glad I didn't pay $20 for it).
