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

Yes. I'm not even a Minecraft fan and I liked this game. I seem to recall more free roaming environment gameplay compared to all of the QTE's I experienced in Wolf Among Us and Walking Dead. 

 

All remain in my backlog until further notice.

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.


Assuming you’re saying the Samsung app was better?

Here are a few comments on some things being discussed here:

  • If you are considering buying Destiny 2 at this price, just know that on Dec. 5 the next expansion will release.  This will raise the level cap from 20 to 25 and the power cap from 300/305 to 330/335 and release a whole bunch of content and gear that probably isn't compatible with or available in the base game.  I'm not trying to scare anyone away from the purchase (the more the merrier!) but I just don't want anyone to play for a few weeks only the be made obselete shortlly after purchase.
  • As I mentioned before, the email address that received the $10 Xbox code was an email address that Xbox doesn't know about.  However, the Microsoft Store DOES know about it so maybe that is the missing link as to why some are getting it and some aren't.
  • Dammit gimme your Shadow of War Gold code for a reasonable price bitches!

Don’t think Destiny 2 will be “obsolete”, especially if you’re mainly playing it for single player like I am. Probably be quite a while at my rate to even finish the content that’s there.

Strangely buying the base game is still cheaper than buying the deluxe edition. ($38.99 + 34.99 = $73.98 vs $74.99). So you can still buy the Expansion Pass and not lose out except for whatever bonus items you get in the deluxe.

Perhaps obsolete was too strong a word, but at the very least you won't be experiencing the best the game has to offer.  There will be new gear, new story content, new post-story content, new wisecracks by Cayde-6, new salt from Asher Mir, new dichotomy from Failsafe, etc.

Completely off topic, but it appears Forza’s public lobbies have come to life in professional racing.

The man child in me had more fun watching the large amount of pricey damage than I should've.

 

And Destiny 2 sounds more and more like a game that pulled an Assassin's Creed II and made a largely boring game I didn't care for into something I'll want to pick up for cheap down the line or when it's all collected into one cheap package.

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.


Can you explain? What was the reason for the chat?

I know he responded again but I don't think CB was super clear, but he is right to warn people. If you never played the first Destiny you may not be familiar. They integrate new weapons and stuff in to general game play, so I was having weapons drop that had a "you can't use this item since you don't own the dlc" icon. Basically I was picking up items that just wasted space in my inventory. It can just get frustrating when you get a gun that looks cool and has nice stats that you either have to pay to use or scrap.

I did not realize Anniversary even had DLC, that's pretty bullshit.

 

But yeah, any game that becomes BC also brings the DLC to BC. You should be able to still buy off the website, or sometimes through the game itself if it had a menu for it. I think you can even search for it on your Xbone itself either in the store or through the browser and should be able to buy it there too.

 

If you're totally new to Xbox, I'd look at getting this Trilogy version. It gives you all three games for just $5 more than Anniversary alone, and they're all BC. If you already played them before then feel free to skip, as this doesn't include any bonuses.

The original Fable 1 isn't BC

I know what you’re talking about as I did buy Destiny 1 base and later the Taken King edition.

For this, I still picked up the standard edition since, as I mentioned, it’s just as cheap to buy the expansion pass separately vs the deluxe edition.

Figure if I cross that road and feel like I want it, I can buy it then and not really have lost anything. That was my point.

Buying the base game itself doesn’t make it obsolete if you can still buy the expansions and pay the same (or in this case save $1).

I booted up my 360 to buy a few things and noticed they had castlevania los 2 in the Xbox one bc section of games to buy. But it didn't have the "Xbox one" title on the bottom. Either a mistake or perhaps we are getting it this next week.

True, not obsolete, just a bit frustrating. I was thinking about upgrading to digital but after buying the expansion pass and taken king individually for D1 I think I may way until an ultimate edition. After spending like $140 on the first game and barely touching the dlc I think I can get my money's worth from the base game for a while.

I’m a fucking idiot. Was searching for Forza 7 digital on eBay and found someone selling their code from Taco Bell.

There were two listings. Well it turns out it the one I bid on was just for the exclusive TB driver suit. So I could be paying $30 for a cosmetic item I definitely do not want for that price. 🤦‍♂️

Edit: messaged the dude selling it and he canceled the item for me. Whoosh....

Any opinions on Get Even? Looks cool and has really good user reviews, but it's $15, that's 2 ACA Neo Geo games.......

Stop wasting your money on videogames and sign up at prizerebel! Just do some simple and short surveys and in a couple of weeks time, you'll have enough credit to buy a $60 release! Or PSN/Xbox credit. Why pay money to fund your hoarding addiction when you can do it for freeeee!!!

Bought Battlefront 2.

 

Game is pretty decent. Multiplayer is fun, and I think skill can defeat star cards in a lot of cases.

 

Singleplayer on the other hand is kinda meh. I mean it's there and the story is ok, but this is really just a shoot everything that moves for 4-5 hours. If your into that, then you will have fun. I am having fun because it's mindless killing which is a great thing when you want to destress. Defiantly don't buy this game if just for singleplayer though.

I know there's a trading thread, but I thought I'd ask in here first if anyone wants to gift me Assassin's Creed Origins in exchange for the gold edition of Shadow of War, let me know.

Edit: Traded!

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've seen tons of Switches in my Best Buy. I'll snag ya one, duder, if ya want.

Can you explain? What was the reason for the chat?

I tried for a refund over a Groove Music code, and given the bad rep that chat support has in comparison to phone support. I was surprised the it took around fifteen minutes to get the refund added to my account.

Will the Pigsy Perfect DLC for Enslaved ever be on Sale? lol...

 

And when did Alice Madness Returns become BC? Also why isn't that Game on Sale? =P

So far I got the Deus EX DLC and the Season Pass for that Lara Croft Game that was GWG on the XBone...

With all the various sport game bundles EA put together for this, it would've been nice to have had an NHL/NBA Live combo. Given what they are asking for the FIFA/NBA Live one they could've done one for $35 and I would be all over that.

Bought Battlefield 2, despite the controversy.

It’s...interesting. Single player two missions in is safe but pretty. Multiplayer seems solid so far, but time will tell on the economy. Historically, it’s shitty in Battlefield games so I don’t expect it to get awesome and rewarding.

But it looks and plays great!

I got it for “free” by trading in Injustice 2, Diablo 3, Agents of Mayhem.

Picked up Forza 7 with the TRU glitch and, holy cow, it is now hands down my game for showing off what the X1X can do. Simply gorgeous to behold and amazing that it’s native 4K 60 FPS.

Just like people use certain movies as “reference discs” for showing off their TVs. This is the must have reference game for the X.
