I keep wanting to pick up Dead Cells, but the cag in my just feels like it’s wrong to pay a higher price for something that was recently cheaper.

Any chance the Complete Add-ons collection for Forza Motorsport 6 goes on sale again before everything is delisted? I just picked up a used copy at GS. The code for 10th anniversary Car Pack hadn't been redeemed, so I lucked out there.

With the best buy deal right now of the 4k tcl and one S for 500, tempted to do it then use the GameStop promo for the X. Feel like there won't be a better deal

If I were in the market for a TV of that size, I would jump on that deal in an instant...

The new look of the marketplace pages this past week also came with a change to the HTML.  Good news - looks like just about every page I check has JSON at the bottom that is easier to parse.  Maybe better news - looks like a bunch of stuff is slated for date night.  I hope I'm reading it correctly.  Don't know if I'll have everything set for tomorrow night, however.  Monday's are usually my hell days at work.  Came very close to registering with the Creator's Program to see if that has better ways of accessing XBL

FM6 won't go until next year, it will probably be on sale a couple more times (holidays, pre-delisting).  Will probably also go GwG before it is delisted, like FH1, FM5 and FH2.

Would love it if Nier has a decent Sale tomo.

Thanks for the info, I couldn't remember when FM6 and the DLC would be delisted. It's too bad I didn't pay more attention before FH1 and FM5 were delisted, would have liked to have all of the DLC for those as well.

You already know these games are going to be for sale? I guess whatever they're doing with the web site now really is an improvement.

 

I wanted to grab a couple of the better Neo-Geo games this week, but alas, it's just not in the budget. Oh well, at least Garou and Samurai Shodown II are backward compatible... I already have those, and they're better than most of what was offered.

It plays a lot better. The frame rate still drops here and there but it is actually playable on the X.

I picked it up over the weekend and put in a couple hours this morning.  Had one crash and was like here we go.  Seems MUCH better then it was on PS4 around release and maybe shortly after.  Load times aren't too bad and so far the lag isn't really too bad.  Sad it requires a XBox One X to play decently.  It isn't a very good looking game IMO.  But lots of fun.  

 

Hopefully as I get into larger bases and stuff it will stay playable.

Dead Cells is excellent, though, you'll get your money's worth as long as you enjoy a challenge.

Enjoy a challenge like dark souls? Or enjoy a challenge like bayonets?

Or if others have other ways to describe “challenge / hard like” that would be cool.

When is the free game from Mixer called Outer Wilds going to be released for Xbox One?

I looked during E3 and couldn't find a date or even a window. This was a "crowdsourced" game on Fig, with an initial release estimate for Q2 2016(!). Personally I still think Fig in general is shady, and the fact that this barely cleared it's goal rings a huge warning bell for me, along with pretty much the entirety of this campaign. Surely, they must have run out of money a while ago and the Mixpot deal was to get a cash infusion. There were no consoles versions even planned as they only had one stretch goal, and they announced the Xbox version during E3 while not mentioning the Mixpot directly to their backers. The team has no real credits other than the studio being owned by a TV star. The campaign had less than a thousand backers and all of their updates have about 4 or less comments, with ZERO on the Xbox announcement.

 

The most useful info I see to get a clue about release date is in the most recent update from 3 days ago. They're asking backers to turn in their reward surveys that were due at the end of May

Dead Cells is hands down, so far my game of the year. I love it so much that I bought a physical copy to play on the switch in handle held mode. Everything about the game is great, the combat, the counter system, the equipment, the way your charter moves around he environment and the feeling of accomplishment. Yes there is a challenge to it but you are working towards finding new gear every run that will help you the next time you play. I'm addicted to the game and can't wait to play some more. I finally got to the last boss yesterday on the Switch just because I had some great legendary gear drops during my play through. He wiped the floor with me but it still felt great. I've only gotten to the castle on Xbox One and I have so much more gear on this version. I just got the Switch version on Friday and only played it a few hours compared to about 20 hours on Xbox One. It is such a well made game.

It certainly has some inspiration from Dark Souls, if the name didn't give that away, but I don't think it really has much in common. The controls are very responsive and you really feel like a badass ninja jumping and rolling all over the place, but the randomized gear, and lack of a stamina gauge or body recovery keep it from being a 2d Soulslike imo. It's just a rogue-lite metroid game with dodging.

I'm having a blast with it though, I just unlocked the last blueprint using the Hunter's Grenade (formerly Pokebomb). Now they just need to fix it so the daily runs total up, and I can get those last two. Then I need to get to 3 boss cells to unlock the path to get all the Moonflower keys for the final blueprint. :D

it definitely takes some inspiration from Dark Souls, and is definitely a roguelike. For me, the balance is in the risk/reward, where you keep finding new stuff and slowly making progress towards unlocking new weapons and increasing the odds of having better gear, along with slowly getting permanent upgrades. The game can be brutal but I always want to start another run.

With the announcement that all of Hitman will be playable in Hitman 2, I wonder how it will work with the 1st season on Gamepass.

Same, I haven't been this addicted to a game since The Binding of Issac. I can't recommend Dead Cells enough. It's one of the most perfect made games I've ever played.

I see you motherfuggers are at it again. If I end up buying Dead Cells full price and it goes on sale a week later, I will hunt you fuckers down and kick you in the balls...every fucking one of you guys, except GGP (obviously)

I accidentally clicked on Game Pass on the dashboard and it says I can subscribe for just $2 for a month (off the normal $10 price).  I checked the website and it's showing the same sale price.  I don't remember an announcement on this.  Was it part of this week's sale?  Or maybe it's related to Gamescom...?

RIP Amazon's current preorder discount.

 

I know people compare Dead Cells a lot to Dark Souls because of the difficulty and the way the in-game lore is delivered, but for me it feels like a much better Harmony of Dissonance.
