Star Wars game with lead time and a developer I still moderately trust in a time period I want more from, I consider that a win. Murdering C&C and making it's corpse dance was not something I expected. They totally blew the Unravel 2 reveal, didn't realize it was out today until seeing comments about it.

 Having the Respawn guy there saying yep were doing Star Wars was my highlight for sure.

Master Chief says hi.


At least he has a name, a personal story arc, a voice, and his own unique personality.

Irritating how I finally find a game I'd like to use my Mixer credit on (Unravel Two), find a streamer who's playing it (https://mixer.com/GhostfromTexas) and it's offering a discount off the first game instead :\

I can't decide if I should spend my credit at a local store on an X or not. I currently don't have a 4k TV but would upgrade in the near future, been eyeing the tcl. This store sells books, movies, music and games. Would probably buy some vinyl and games but don't need to add to those backlogs. I currently have $423 in credit and still have more movies and games to trade in.

Do any of the Xbox 1 games interest you? If so, maybe look into the Xbox one s as it is far cheaper and plays the same games. If you aren't getting a 4k tv soon the one s is a great option and when you do get a 4k tv the one s is still a 4k blu Ray player and displays 4k content and HDR. Just depends how soon you will be getting a 4k tv, what games you're interested in, and how important 4k gaming is to you.

I thought about getting a one x but I already have a one s and just can't justify the upgrade.

If I am understanding correctly, they will give Outer Wilds free tomorrow in MixPot? Not sure if it's a contest or everyone get it.

Was going to pass on the Gamepass 6 month / $30 deal, but then I remembered prices might go up in the future, and for $5 a month, it seems worth it.

that’s what I thought also. Picked up 2 + years worth when it was $5 a month and have barely touched anything on it. It did help it realize Sea if Thieves was garbage and not worth a purchase but I probably could’ve figured that out another way.

Can mixer be streamed on a phone and count for the mix pot? I won’t be home when the stream starts and I’d like to snag as many freebies as I can no matter how amazing or mediocre they are.

Edit: Found the Mixr app for IPhone and it let me link my Xbox account. So I assume I’ll be able to stream on the go and have it count for the mixpot.

Thanks for the info. I already own an S and the big xbox. So I'd probably be trading in the older one. Will hold on to the credit for now.

What exactly is MixPot? I have Mixer and my Microsoft account is linked to it..

It's free shit. Last year was The Final Station, Rare Replay and some DLC I believe.

Unravel 1 was a beautiful puzzle platformer that told a great heart felt story with no dialogue.

I know it’s blasphemy but I enjoyed it more than inside. Then again I thought the latter was a bit to artsy fartsy.

So I’m in for unravel 2.... when it’s down to super cheap. I do have a back log :p

I've decided that if a game doesn't have a hero with a face and an actual name (like Marcus Fenix, Kratos, Nathan Drake, etc) and not just some generic title like "Guardian" or "Agent", I'm not fuckin with it. Tired of this shit. I want iconic characters that I can put a face to. No more helmets and masks.

The bit of gameplay had an NPC address players as freelancers, so I'm pretty sure you're sol.

It also sounded like the only place you're out of your iron man suit is in the instanced hub area, so if you can customize your face it's just for the npcs to marvel at.

Hope the mixpot is good this year, probably just some ID games but hopefully quality ones

Is the 50% off game pass from Amazon and bb only? I was hoping to use live credit.

Is Newegg's Ebay store reliable? They have the X1X there currently for $399.99 without tax. Almost seems like a deal too good to be true.

Every time I see stills or art for Anthem, I need to do a double take to make sure they're not talking about Destiny.

The E3 marquee looks a little bit different this year.

You might've just sold me on Unravel. I too thought Inside was just ok ... until that ending! That's where I was like, well, Fuck me, that was stupid as hell.

Decided to preorder Anthem while I still have GCU. Also comes with a $10 cert so basically $37.99. Gonna take advantage of GCU before I mourn its death come October (for me).
