When does Microsoft have their big online sale?   Is it over Thanksgiving/BF or is it over XMas time?  I know they usually have some good stuff, I can't remember when they roll out the real deals?

 

Starts this Friday the 17th. I believe they have a sale at both Christmas and black friday

I believe it's this Friday for Gold Members and the 21st for everybody else. Pretty sure the Black Friday sales are static but I can't remember if they change at all during the actual date. The Christmas sale is always pretty fun because they usually have a daily sale, too.


Ugly, like you.

GameStop killed that rental program that seemed too good to be true before it was to be launched nationwide. Apparently are concerned that their computer system won’t be able to handle it — not surprising based on the fact that it can’t handle many simple transactions.

It might come back but based upon the fact that people were refunded their money at soft launch stores, I have my doubts.

Based upon a company refunded people their money for a program that was suspended is the reason you think it won't come back? You realize they HAD to refund these people their money, right? That is in no way an indication of the service not coming back.

I misread that to think they were talking about refunds to the people already using the service at the pilot locations. Forgot that others were able to sign up prior to the nationwide launch. Not sure if the pilot is continuing.

Regardless, if they are concerned about their computer system not being able to handle it, I still have my doubts as to whether they will continue it. If they need to upgrade their systems, that’s something that will cost millions to do.

Who knows? Maybe they will still do it eventually because they need something to help keep their doors open.

If it was a quick fix, they probably would be giving people a free game and letting them know the launch would be delayed instead of refunding. Just my opinion.

Also thanks for the link, between that post and his twitter, he says the multiplayer is excellent, lots of fun, and one of the best looking games out there. Weird that you left that out of your post for some reason.

 

About the original response, if the only intention from the start was to give a player enough credits to buy a specific character, why not simply unlock her directly upon the completion of the campaign? She could still have a credit value for players that completely skip campaign.

 

I don't think anyone has been arguing that a FPS on the Frostbite engine by the team that created it looks bad. Like that's even a factor in the discussion. I never said the game was un-fun, just that it's ruined by pay to win mechanics and ridiculous unlock requirements. I'd say that fun gameplay could be expected of a game from DICE without needing to be said. A few good points don't save the game for me, and any purchases of the game help send a broader message that this garbage is OK with many consumers, which could lead to it spreading to other games and publishers.

 

And I did mention one positive in my earlier posts, the developer response about trying to bring over an accessibility feature from Battlefield 1 when requested.

Also Jewel Quest is a forbidden fruit for me. Perfect pacing break game from action game sessions.

Welcome to the digital/physical dilemma my friend.

That’s why I was wondering if the prices posted in the BF announcement on Major Nelson’s site were just for the MS store or for digital. I’m thinking they’re just the physical versions on the MS store.

Because if Forza 7 is $40 digital, I might actually bite since it’s going to be $35 at BB. Figure I could deal with a $5 difference for digital. $10 more is more iffy. But when it gets to be $15 or more, I’ll definitely stick with physical.

I'm going to buy it physically on Black Friday, and wait for it to be lower digitally, then resell/trade physical copy later to cover digital costs. It didn't take long for Stick of Truth to go under $10 digitally. Unless you only want digital titles, I understand why it sucks.

The game is mind-numbingly fun. I can only assume they'd have issues with the licenses/THQ not existing, making it difficult for this to go BC.

PSN has had sales for the show before, I don't remember if Xbox has. 

 

Horizon is great, but I still went with Zelda over it. I haven't gotten to HZD's new DLC yet, but while it is an excellent game Zelda does more to innovate on the genre by a large margin.

 

For the China thing I'd guess that Chinese sponsor paid a decent amount of money for this whole thing, though I don't know why as I don't think a good chunk of these games are available in the country. Maybe they have some connection to PUBG, as that has a LOT of Chinese players.

Another thing to consider the really crazy timing of them rolling out this program during the holiday shopping rush. I know personally I've walked out of gamestop many times do to the guy at the front of the line wanting to talk up the cashier about Kingdom Hearts for 10 minutesm or I just never went in because I could see how crowded it was from the outside. Seemed like an unwise decision to introduce this now and create even more foot traffic in your small store that isn't going to even buy anything except to switch out their used game.
