I'm more of a run and gun but when I played Far Cry Blood Dragon for some reason I really liked being stealthy more than in any other game. Thanks, unless someone had a bad experience I think that's what I'll buy.

As I go stealth most often than not in the Far Cry games, Blood Dragon is the complete opposite. Its over the top and exaggerated gameplay should be cherished, not shamed.  :-

Just finished tale tells guardians of the Galaxy. I enjoyed it. Good story very similar to the movies.

It was a little slower at parts but the group dynamic is really fun and when they are all fighting together it made for some of the best tell tale stuff.

I finished it just after you, haha. I did like it a lot. I thought it employed a lot of the quirks that makes the team fun in the movies. As a Telltale game, it's probably near the bottom of the list for me, but still pretty good.

 

If it does, it potentially means the end of me being interested in using Bing or Edge

Could this potentially mean that Microsoft gift cards will end on Bing Rewards on June 30th?

 

EDIT: How do you add images here?

What exactly are you guys referring to? Is there some reason to think Bing Rewards won't continue to offer them? MattOK's post reads like a reply but I didn't see anything in the ~page or two before that seemed relevant.

I think MattOK was trying to post an image to which his post was referring, because without it, I agree the comment comes out of nowhere and I also have no idea what led him to that conclusion.

How much were the Xbox One Kinect units when GS was blowing them out for really cheap? I’m thinking of getting one so I can use the camera when I broadcast on Mixer...

May just join the Alpha ring and be able to use a USB camera...

10.00 i believe

They were under $20 I believe. Keep in mind if you have an S or X you'll need an adapter to use it. MS announced they're not making them anymore so those were going for like $75 when I checked a couple weeks ago.

So, I finally played Rocket League. Fun game but I totally suck, at least for now. I got an assist in the first game, scored once in the second, and nothing else after that. Bloodywarrior was a scoring machine. I figured I'd be matched with other players at my level but I was playing with veterans.

Glad you finally took the plunge. I sucked when I started too, lol we were all Noobs once. I highly recommend running some drills every once and a while to better your play.

Today's the first day for the new Freedom Rewards Play-a-Thon to start tracking progress. I've got 4:23 so far, which is 17 entries for me.
 

Interesting, too bad Pinball FX 3 isn't in the eligible titles at least from what i see. Makes less sense since they have Pinball FX 2.

There's an ad for this XBL Rewards promotion on the dashboard store that links to qualifying games, which includes Pinball FX3 in there.

Pulled the trigger on Inside and Limbo last night. Continuing my search for another $18 worth of games for Doctor xbox rewards mission.

If you are still looking for something on the Doctor rewards list, I cannot recommend What Remains of Edith Finch enough.

I am normally not into "Interactive novels" that much, but I started it yesterday and finished it.

It is SO well written, so well done. The interactions do not feel forced or tacked on. Everything flowed so well.

I plan on going back again just to see what I missed, and to go through the entire story again. It is that good.

When I finished it I just sat and watched all of the credits (which do callbacks to the story throughout) going "Wow...."

Agreed! I started it last night as well but wasn’t able to finish it yet. Great story, flow, and the graphics are nice to. It definitely has a Big Fish feel to me so far.

Some new drops today.  Some Ubisoft games and season passes, maybe price drops?  And then what may be the usual Madden Super Bowl Sale, but usually it occurs with a sale starting before the SB and ending after and there usually is a "Super Bowl Edition" or the like.  Tempted to get the GOAT edition to get some MUT stuff plus no longer putting my disc in and then the disc will be expendable for the Best Buy trade in deal for Madden 19 this fall.

Thanks. I was thinking about that and maybe Dear Esther.

I'm Delta ring and use a logitech usb camera. If you do that I would recommend a usb extension cord. I got one from amazon basics when I ordered the web cam and it worked out well. Just depends on your setup.

Bloodywarrior was a scoring machine. I figured I'd be matched with other players at my level but I was playing with veterans.

I think rank only takes into account how much you've played and how much you've won. Essentially you get xp for playing a match, but you get more for winning than losing. I'm ranked semi-pro but I'm terrible; it's just from how much I've played.

So even if they matched based on your named tank there could be some disparity. Better player matching to create more competitive matches might require matching other stats/metrics like goals per game, total goals/assists, centers, saves, etc. On the other hand, being very specific about matching could mean you have the same people playing each other over and over or worse you can't match them to anyone.

For me I play mostly to see myself or other players make great plays not so much for winning. Oh and I live comebacks on either side. Those always blow my mind.

But yes, skills drills. I gotta do more of those.

Yeah I saw that ad on the dashboard yesterday, it doesn't have clicker heros and oddly has that fable card game that costs $20 or something

Mutant League Football launched out of preview yesterday. $20 instead of $25. People who bought it at $25 did get DLC though.

 

Has a one hour trial. Was pretty damn fun, but the CAG in me said wait till it gets even cheaper.

How do you keep it idling? I've tried plugging in my controller and rubberbanding the sticks, but it keeps d/cing the controller and then shutting down. I've been trying to idle Clicker Heroes, but I'll switch to pinball if that's easier.

^ I believe that was a joke and EB is EjectedBunny. lol

 

So I'm up to Lvl 47 in Frozen Freefall

Got all dailies done, all three daily challenges (that reward shards) & a few PvP battles in Gems of War, almost got all my Kingdoms upgraded to Lvl 10 as well.

Went back and played some quests in Fallout Shelter.

Playing a bit of Pinball FX 3 and hoping that qualifies, though it's not on the list of games.

 

This Free promo thingie is killing my resolution of getting to the backlog of-already-bought-and-paid-for-games.

I am right there with you, Buddy!

Welcome to my boat.

 

BTW I am still looking for more games for the Doctor "Quest".

I am normally not into "interactive novels", but I am kinda, maybe, sorta looking at FireWatch... maybe?

Any suggestions?

I picked up Inside and Limbo for $12 total. Weird thing is you'll probably be over $30. A lot of combinations hit $29.99 (or end in 98 cents or 97 cents) before tax because a number of the games are at a price ending in .99 . If I were at a brick and mortar store I'd just throw in a pack of 25 cent gum. Where's the digital gum?

It went to the title screen, but you stay logged in on Pinball Arcade. I noticed that Clicker Heroes and Pinball FX 3 both log out your profile when they go to the title screen.

I've had luck leaving Clicker Heroes going over night by just having my controller plugged into my xbox. Just have to get past the choose profile step and into the game proper. Up to 15 hours so far, which is only 15 entries for the group i'm in.
