Hope Best Buy puts preorder links up soon. Would like to grab them before my GCU expires.

WoFF comes out in November, so you may be good on that if you planned on getting it. Since they are discontinuing GCU and there aren't release dates yet, I wouldn't be surprised if they engage in some fuckery and don't list them til then to avoid people getting discounts.

Will be interesting to see the price point on this.  This version includes some extra characters supposedly.  I purchased the original PS4 version on Black Friday shortly after its released and greatly enjoyed it.  The battle system is a bit simplistic but fun, the chibi verisons of characters are charming, the story is not too shabby for a fanservice type of game and it does feel a tad bit like the FF games of old in 3D form.  Would love to see this game get a sequel and would not be surprised if it does if the Xbox and Switch versions perform well.

Any stark differences with SotTR?

I've been playing some of Shadow and to me it is very familiar to Rise, though I have read there is less combat and more puzzles this time around. 

 

It was actually a very questionable purchase on my part, since I didn't really enjoy Rise.  Don't know what I was thinking when I placed the pre-order; likely got caught up in the E3 hype.  The three things that irk me about this series are 1) the puzzles 2) the amount of backtracking required to access blocked areas once you have new gear and 3) the need to constantly use Survival Instincts to highlight loot, craftable items, traps etc. 

 

I agree that 1) is totally my fault in that puzzles are what Tomb Raider is all about, and I have seen some people argue that Survival Instincts is almost cheating and that purists don't even use it.  I don't know, knowing it's there I can't help but use it, I just wish objects would be highlighted in my normal vision rather than having to push down on the thumbstick every 10 steps.  I'll stick with the game though, and try to at least finish the main storyline.  I hear it's only about 12-15 hours and does have some terrific moments.

It’s actually $39.99 currently on Amazon so not too bad.

So where is the option? I tried finding it to no avail. 

The Community Tab between Redeem and Status on the rewards dashboard.

Never mind I found how to gift points across family Microsoft Rewards accounts too. It is under the Community tab on the rewards page for others who may also be confused.

I loved TR and only liked RoTR. Like you, Rise had too many puzzles and back tracking for me. Some where in between TR and RoTR would have been perfect but I'll still play Shadow.

I guess the blackout beta downloaded automatically for me and we went pass our 1TB monthly limit and we only had one more day for it to reset, dang it. Only $10 extra with 50gb added, but still. Only got AT&T internet, no bundle, so there’s a limit. Dunno why it automatically downloaded, I thought I didn’t op in for that option. Didn’t realize it was downloading while we were watching something ha. Ah well. Here’s a beta code: 3RJHY

I started playing Nier yesterday after buying it at launch. I can feel the polish, it's very good, however I seem to be bad, I used almost all of my recovery items in the opening section. I'm having fun, but depending how the rest of the game goes I might bump it to easy for a while. Granted I was exhausted, staying awake while repairmen were here so that might have something to do with it.

Saw The Predator or as I called it, A-Team vs. Predator. It was enjoyable, definitely felt like an 80's R rated movie you bring the family to as opposed to testosterone bro down like the first two (and third to an extent).

 

Also I started Agents of Mayhem thinking it going to be a straight forward linear game with levels with team mates you can switch on the fly, I was not expecting an open world game and was kinda hoping to take a break from open world games after beating Sunset Overdrive then Infamous 2, but guess I'm back at it again.

I'd say bump it down until you're used to the combat, but only if you're dying a lot. Xbox is my second playthrough for the game and I've only had to use healing items during a few bosses, with no deaths yet. Look into some of the upgrade chips as a lot of them can give you bonus healing in a few different ways, or higher HP.
