What is the difference between the Forza horizon 3 car pass and vip pass? I bought the game and both expansions last weekend and trying to decide if I should get the car pass since it's on sale.

The problem with Duke Nukem Forever is that it's mediocre at best and there are tons of better FPS games and Duke just doesn't scratch any particular itch or exceed at doing anything great or hell, even good.


Why does it matter to you if someone else wants to buy it?

Just realized Forza Horizon 3 trades for $24.50 at GS with Pro. Think I’m going to go digital for $.50.

Want to go digital for other things but unsure about it as it’s a minimum $3.50 difference and they’re not games I play as much. Guess I can continue to get the 10 feet of exercise for those. :)

The Car Pass gets you the first 6 (7?) car packs, while the VIP just gives you a couple cars and a credit bonus while you play.

Notably absent from the Car Pass is the Porsche Car pack.

Sealed Gold copy? If so you should've redeemed the season pass for the whole game digitally and gotten rid of the disc when it was hot


No no these are standard sealed copies I forgot to mention that.

Fired up Forza 7 for the first time today. With the ultimate edition stuff and vip cars my collection went up to level 3 without actually doing anything but the intro races. Even without and 4K tv it looks absolutely amazing. Can’t wait to see it with a new TV

Picked up what will probably be my only new holiday releases - Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon.  Unless I decide to throw down for, and am able to find, a Switch for Mario Odyssey.

I got that two pack from Amazon. So hyped to play it.

Why does this always happen?

 

Someone expresses a disparaging opinion about a game which is currently being discussed. Someone snaps back "don't tell people how to spend their money!" The two are not the same thing. BDK never said don't buy it, he said it was mediocre.

Ended up getting Deluxe Edition of FF15. The multipleplayer expansion is $20 alone. Also purchased some of the 50 cent dlc.

Come off it. Someone else mentioned that they enjoyed the game and that they thought it was worth $2, then there was an immediate response explaining why the game was mediocre and there were better choices... In the context of that conversation, the purpose of that response was pretty clear.

I don't know if I was just lucky, but I just got 36 xbucks from chat support over a 3 month Groove pass that I got for free with that 1 month trial promotion they ran a coupe of months ago.

90% of this thread is discussion as to whether not X game is worth X dollars. Obviously people can spend whatever they want on anything, no matter how good or bad it is.

^ Wish Tales of Vesperia & Eternal Sonata were BC, then I'd pick up those 360 titles for sure. Spy's Rule #18, no more 360 games unless they're BC, gotta move on.

What was the purpose of your response? This thread exists for sales notices and impromptu reviews of the games on sale, new releases, xbox news, etc. Opinions going one way and the other are encouraged. We all have differing tastes, so knowing what issues were deal breakers along with elements that were so positive they overrode those criticisms to others helps outsiders inform their purchasing decisions. Your earlier post GGP referenced was just you snapping at BDK for having a discenting opinion and added nothing to discussions about the game in question's merits or lack thereof.

I'm loving South Park. It'll probably go down to $30/35 for xmas sales, so if you have other games you want to play I can see waiting. The season pass will go cheaper, or the enviable Target merger of Gold sku, so I held off.

Have you played Minecraft season 1? How does it perform on the 360 compared to the other TT games? It seems like buying the season pass + adventure pass will be cheaper than buying the complete pass

Haven’t watched Netflix much since getting the X but I can see why some reviewers have slammed the app. Guess it also was updated for the S and the PS4. But watched some of The Punisher and thought it looked off. Watched on my Samsung’s app and it looked amazing.

They really need to fix it. Know part of it is always being set to HDR even for non HDR shows, but The Punisher is HDR and still didn’t look good.

Sounds like a Netflix problem — not an X or MS problem.

When I first loaded Netflix up it asked me if I wanted to upgrade my subscription to 4k. Do you know if that has any impact?

Maybe they're just waiting for you to buy them to make them BC...

Most definitely does. But still doesn’t make the app any better (I have the 4K subscription). The app directly on my Samsung still kills it beyond measure. Really disappointing because I only get stereo out of my TV and not the full effects of Dolby Digital or whatever.

I'm the same way with those games but every few sales they seem to get me with a "I really want this to go BC, might as well get it just in case." This sale was spec ops and last sale was vanquish. I still have a 360, so it's not like I'm buying games I can't access.

I have a similar setup so I'll have to try my Samsung TV app, my OG Xbox app, and my Xbox One X app.

I’d be curious what you find out. On my X1X, despite it forcing HDR on everything (which is wrong), the stuff with HDR is too dark and the regular stuff just looks way off. It really is night and day using the Samsung app vs the X. Hope they fix it. Know that Forbes guy was bitching about it.

Apparently the most recent update made it read as HDR for everything even when it shouldn’t on not just the X but also all other Xbox Ones and the PS4. Netflix responded to him that it was intentional but it most certainly is not the way it should be.

Uh, it doesn't? Merely someone asked and there was no response still and people were going more in detail so I decided to go a bit more in detail besides my original"lololol no". It was more a matter of level the playing field and expressing better detail why I said no. Plus it doesn't matter because he'll make up his own mind in the end.

Yep. For $5 or less, I'll either play it eventually on 360 and if it never goes BC, it was very cheap. $3 and some change? Sure, gimme.

Glad this is being discussed. I had streamed 4 seasons using the XB1 app when I then tried my Samsung tv app. The difference was quite noticeable and improved.
