Meant to post these over the holidays. Many of you have these games but I don't need them so I hope some of you might. Sorry there are no dashes.

Tried to get one of these.... Both taken by someone not surprisingly. Didn't expect them to actually last 3 hours, but a guy can hope. Nice drop anyway.

Wish this flu would go away already, bought so much off the holiday sale and barely played anything yet with feeling so shitty. All I've done since new years is binge watch Every episode of Everybody Loves Raymond and The Golden Girls lol.

^ I'll never forget the line:  "Your feet smell like a skunk that crawled out of the ass of another skunk."

 

This weekend I joined two clubs:

 

The 4K Club:  I bought the 4K TV that GS offers because I had points out the wazzoo.  My first impression:  Destiny looked good and it looked smooth, but the lag on it was disembowelingly noticeable.  The TV was going to go in my office to replace the Roku TV that crapped out after only 15 months of incredibly light use, but instead my wife snagged it for her office.  Now if I can get her to watch some 4K content on it I think the seed will have been planted.

 

The FH3 Club:  Still having GS points out the wazzoo, I bought the FH3+Hot Wheels 500GB console for a decent price with the intention of trading the game back in to offset the cost, but apparently it is a code.  I may have to play it instead. :)

Day one of vacation at a snowy Outer Banks and it's pretty surreal. Downloadapalooza has commenced as I celebrate uncapped internet for the week. Woo-hoo!

Ya, it's not perfect, but given that I listed it as one of my top games of 2017 I feel compelled to chip in.  Like a lot of shooters, the vehicle dynamics leave a lot to be desired, and my solution was just not to use the bike.  There are only a few places where you must use it thankfully.  There is bullet drop to account for which may be impacting your sniping. 

 

As for the enemy AI, what difficulty are you playing on and how far along are you?  The game layers on the difficulty, and having played it through twice (including Deathwish difficulty) I don't think you'll be lacking a challenge at different points.   There is a stealth mechanic too, so it is possible to creep quite close.

I'm playing it on easy and got "The Brain". I'm enjoying the game more with a shotgun since the shooting feels more premise.

 

I did solve another problem where I forgot I can unequip a weapon which makes travel easier. I would like to see a motorcycle a little more often since I am running .. a lot.   

 

There is no lack of challenge, although the "Hearts and Minds" challenge was annoying since it doesn't track an objective you already completed (cutting wires, saving civiilan) and I found myself doing the same thing over and over since it doesn't reset at a Game Over.

So is this the first week we can expect/hope for some new updates in terms of BC or enhanced games?

Been playing Gears 4 with the $1 game pass. Looks like a easy finish by the 22nd. Anyways...playing it has brought back some nostalgia to play the first with my son. Anyone have an extra code I could load on his new to him 360 would be appreciated.

The topic has come up before about how much game time is needed to appreciate a game, with some people weighing in at less time, and others (mostly me I guess) saying that more time is necessary.   I completed Prey this weekend, and would say that is a game that requires almost a full playthrough before it becomes truly fun.  After that though, you know the maps and mechanics so well that subsequent runs are much more enjoyable.

 

Next on the list is the new Hitman, which is also TA's playlist game for January.  I started it tonight, and after about 4 hours I'm frustrated as hell.  The game is tough!  The prelude was ok, but the Paris map is huge and I'm stymied at every turn.  Throwing in the towel for the night I found this on Reddit: https://www.reddit.c...really_suck_at/

 

The first response says it all:

 

I felt the exact same way when I first got the game and I'm a long time Hitman veteran. After about 10 or so hours, you'll start to get really good at it and learn how things work. Just keep trying and pushing through the "am I an idiot?" phase.

So, at 10 hours, I have 6 hours left of frustration before the game will start to be enjoyable.  Hopefully I make it :beer:

If you want an easy mode, just follow one of the opportunities for the main targets and do what it tells you.

We should see titles this week. Major Nelson said no new releases till the new year. Team should have been back at work sometime mid to late last week. Wouldn't be surprised to see nothing Tuesday but Thursday should be almost guaranteed.

 

Some new PUBG patch going live around 4amish apparently.


... go to sleep.

After watching "This week on XBox" from last week I get the impression we may be waiting another week at least. Major Nelson says something like "things will be slow for the next couple of weeks."
