If you purchase a game off of a Mixer partner you get $5 back though it only qualifies for games they're streaming at the moment. Usually there is like a pink pop up notification under to tell you if it qualifies.

can you purchase with you MS credit? Sorry if that’s a dumb question.

Just noticed that they deposited the $5 from my Arkham Knight purchase through Mixer from a few days ago. Still on the fence about Forza Horizon 2, but it's a good price. Hope the rest of you get your $5 soon.

And people are trying to grab sale games this way for the added money back? Or does it only offer full prices?

I bought gta v on sale that way. The only way I could justify buying it for a third time was if I could get it under 15.

Sale games work, I bought Elder Scrolls Online a few days ago since it was $10 and I got my $5 back today, unfortunately there was that day in between where it went to Xbox Games Pass...

Ok, I'm going to go on an old man/parent rant, but after watching the BG&E2 trailer, I couldn't help it.

 

Don't think of me as a prude.  I grew up in the 80's and 90's and didn't have any adverse effects from violence from games like MK and Doom (back when Congress was investigating).  I don't mind my kids seeing it (well, most of the time - newer MKs are a little too much).  But does every game that is supposed to appeal to me need to have rampant cursing?  Once again, I don't mind it - but it's a little hard to let my kids be around when I play games that have arbitrary cursing in them.

 

I know there are kid games out there (mine is addicted to Minecraft and Lego games), but I always thought BG&E was a wonderful bridge between family friendly and mature.  My kids loved watching me play through it.  But there's no way I can play BG&E2 with them around because of the randomly filthy-mouthed monkey character.  Is he really necessary?  Couldn't they make up curse words???

 

I would love it if someone (console manufacturers, publisher, developers - whoever!) would add a filter that would just bleep or garble curse words and could be turned off at a whim.  That way, when the kiddos are around, it's ok for me to enjoy my games.  And when they are out of earshot I can play them with cursing on or whatever.

 

Just my 2 cents.

Doesn't seem unreasonable to me.  I don't need swearing to consider it an adult game, and most of the time it doesn't add anything to the experience for me.  My philosophy in real life is about the same, and you'd only really hear me swearing if I were a) really angry and needing an outlet b) drunk (trash talk) or c) had just hit my thumb with a hammer.

Are you referring to one random line where one character says "jack shit". Really?

After reading your rant, I went and rewatched the trailer because I had no recollection of any cursing in the trailer. I expected to hear gratuitous f bombs, etc. I think your statement is a bit of a reach. My 2 cents.

So Battlefront 2...seems like a pretty good price at this point.  I nabbed the first one at around $20 but it seemed to fall pretty quickly after that.  Does anyone think that it may still be in freefall or with the new upcoming content that this is currently a fair price point?  Any thoughts?  Thanks in advance for any advice.

I haven't shopped at GameStop in years but my bro wanted me to try to get some E3 Exclusive Master Chief Camo Pop Vinyl toy thing. He sent me a link and it gave me an option to try to see if stores have it to hold me fore. I select a store and requested one for hold. Sure enough I get the Hold Confirmation email. So I went there when they opened, I was the second person there, no one was there just me the other person and one employee. I told the employee what I was there for and she just told me they didn't have any or they were for preorders. Anyone else tried to get this and somehow preordered? I wasn't sure if it was available to preorder or not. I just emailed GameStop and told them my experience lol.


Roast them on a survey, I had this happen to me getting to buy a figure. Same thing, showed in stock, knew damn well it was being held for an employee. Got to speak with a DM and it was suddenly available for purchase.

Only game I recall having a “mature content filter” was Gears 3. Turned the profanity into radio static and blood into sparks.

Actually kinda entertaining in its own way.

If you like physical copies toys r us has it for $24 if there's still any open near you. Also, I feel like it could be added to EA access soon but I'm not very familiar with how long it takes for games to be added. It may not be immediately but it will drop in price more. Battlefront and the battlefield games have gotten to below $10 each I believe. If you think you'll play it immediately I'd go for it, but if it's going in the backlog I'd wait.

I couldn't find any partners streaming AC Origins, so instead I found a Mixer partner that was just starting their stream for the day, and before they got into the game I asked them nicely if they would change their Direct Purchase link so that I could buy it, and they were happy to.

 

They did, and it's still set for ACO Gold for now:  https://mixer.com/Caglee

 

If you're still having trouble finding a streamer that has the game you want, asking them to change their link between matches/downtime might be the best route, as they'll probably be happy to grab a few bucks.

Speaking of which I just received my credit from my purchase through mixer on the 7th.

what does it indicate - I have xbox live rewards deposits and miscellaneous credits from Bing.  Does it say mixer?

Mine came in as "Xbox Live Rewards Deposit" on my order history page. I also got a message on xbox life from xbox thanking me for purchasing from a mixer partner and that the 5$ was deposited to my account.

As others are saying, no humans are in the game besides other players so I doubt there will be AI companions, either. And I'm doubtful that the game will have an overarching narrative, quests, etc. because there are no NPCs to give them out. Todd Howard did say there'd be terminals, etc. so there will be in-game lore, but I'm guessing this is meant to be a more loosely structured (if structured at all) experience than the other games. Basically a MP survival sandbox using the Fallout IP.

I'd be fine with that as long as most servers are pretty active. This is shades of Star Wars Galaxies on a smaller scale if they get it right. Right up my alley if so.

I still have a 1080p tv, so for me the Xbox One X is already exceeding my console gaming needs so as long as it plays the new games I won't need a new one yet. Now if it's 2021, I'll probably be ready for a new console by then but I'm pretty happy with my Xbox One X right now. I just want a new Halo for it more than a whole new Xbox.

This rumor suggests the new xbox 'Scarlett' will arrive in 2020  https://www.thurrott...ill-arrive-2020

That was my take when BG&E2 was shown: This has nothing to do with the original story, gameplay wise anyways.

Also if your old like me you'll never forget how BG&E1 dropped to $20 at Circuit City two weeks after release. Or was that $10?

It’s because kids these days have no respect and run around yelling profanities like they’re going out of style but it’s not like they’re going around shooting up sch............. okay never mind I see your point!
