Pretty sure QB has hit $15 used at Gamestop, unless you're super committed to digital. For folks concerned about bandwidth, that'd certainly help.

 

Cannot recommend Doom 2016 enough. WIth the bundle, that's a great price, especially for Wolfenstein II (which i haven't played but have heard is excellent). Otherwise, the Wolfenstein bundle w/ the first game and it's prequel is frequently $15 physical.

 

Long live the AAA single player FPS! 

I'm pretty committed to going digital unless it's for GOTY bundles with content on disc.  Main reason: I game share with my family back home in northern CA.  I think I can wait on QB to hit $15 digital

Sold on the 'Doom' & 'Wolfenstein' bundle.  Maybe I'll pick up the first game & it's prequel as well

I'm at work right now thinking about buying Surviving Mars I vaguely remember at one point they had a bonus on the console reward app for purchasing it, would any of you who are home at your console right now be able to look and tell me if the rewards app still has a bonus for it?

Countdown to 2014 sale.  $8.64 in savings by waiting 4.5 years to add them to the backlog.

 

https://majornelson....nia-collection/

 

I think they might've been on sale at another point, but that's when I bought them.

 

I think Major Nelson had it listed as such last night, which is why it got into my list.  Or I just messed up going between his page and my list.

 

Thanks Bloomy, this inspired me to go ahead and get all the DLC if there is going to be that big of a gap between sales.

Does game pass work for play anywhere games too? Any benefits to PC gamers? Discounts?

Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

The games that are Play Anywhere do work from the Windows 10 store and the same discounts apply on purchasing the game and DLC

I know, that's why I'm dreading it. That month I'll be watching my bandwidth like a hawk. Like I said, I want all the things.

I am pretty sure you can split it up.  So download the game this month.  Then in a couple weeks when it is August download the video?  If you are like everyone else here you won't play it for months if not years (if at all) anyway.    :)

Congrats, echotech83, to you and your mom. Glad to hear everything is on the up and up!

 

So what's the best way to find a Mixer partnered streamer for that credit? I think it's still going on. I tried searching for Hellblade, LIS: BTS, and Tacoma, but didn't see any for those.

Yay for echotech83’s moms recovery.

I’m always surprised how amazing people are on this forum

Yay indeed! I too am surprised at the people here. Most of the internet is not like this.

Really? I had no idea. That will definitely make it more manageable. I'll try not to make it years.  :-P

Yeah it doesn’t download the episodes by default. You have to go in the store and download the free video file. It streams them by default.

What's really nice is that even though it's focused on Xbox deals, there doesn't seem to be any childish console war stupidity in here.

Man, Destiny 2 & Expansions at $20 is a great price - and it'd look great with my XB1X in HDR - but is it really worth buying now knowing I'd be behind the times in six weeks when the new expansion comes out, especially because people will probably say its "essential" (which is what people said last time with the latter Destiny expansions)...?

I'm assuming one of the reasons Best Buy is trying to more or less give away vanilla D2 copies is to clear room for inventory for a new SKU which includes all 3 expansions, same as they did for TTK and Rise of Iron. So it's partially a question of waiting for that package deal to go down in price vs paying for the new expansion at MSRP, or just not having all the content.

 

For $20, I'd probably get my money's worth...

Contemplating adding a Logitech G920 wheel to gaming mix. I’ve checked and it seems to support all the current games I want to use it with. Anyone have one and have any input to share?

So if t please the crowd, I’ve got two less than stellar games tugging at a $38 heartstring...

1) is there enough single player action-figure fun to justify $23 for MvC Infinite?

2) Star Wars Battlefront 2: same question but for $15.

I didn't have that wheel but I had a ThrustMaster TX with force feedback. I absolutely love racing games so I was super excited to get it but I found that after the novelty of the wheel wore off I was just too lazy to hook it up and opted for a controller instead 999 times out of 1000.

They're also hard as hell to sell when you're done using them. If you're confident you'll use it frequently and have a good setup for it than go for it. If you're only moderately interested I'm not sure it will hold your attention long term.

For $5 I’m definitely getting my money’s worth from the Best Buy offer. I can’t see wanting to go much deeper into this world, though.

1. No
2. Possibly. There’s the campaign which is a bit short and the arcade, which are essentially offline multiplayer matches with specific parameters

Okay, gang, I have a couple digital movie codes I don't need. 

 

The Dark Knight redeemable at wb.com

 

Jason Bourne redeemable at uphe.com

 

I believe they will both work with Movies Anywhere, but I could be wrong. Like this post to enter a random drawing for both codes and I'll pull the winner tonight around 9 p.m. eastern.

Still would like some classic 2d games, maybe getting Rogue Legacy or something else. Any good classic 2d games/sidescrollers worth checking out?

In addition to Rogue Legacy I would go with Rayman Legends, Ori and the Blind Forest Definitive Edition, and/or Enter the Gungeon if you don't already own those.  There are some other good ones on sale (Cuphead, Flinthook, Mercenary Kings) but the discounts aren't great.

 

The two arcade Contra games on 360 are also on sale ($2.50 a pop) and they're backward compatible.  I prefer the NES ports myself.
