Ya, I hate this generation for that feature. They could at least boot up the main menu to play around with options, but most of the time it's just a static image and a loading bar. Who the hell wants that?


As long as this thread is going to be a pity party, my car took a shit and died last week. I hate shopping for cars because there are so damn many variables to consider, and such I'm a cheap bastard. I can afford payments on a new car, but I just keeping thinking that I could buy a whole fleet of cars for $20k. It really doesn't help that I insist on driving stick shift, but I don't really care for sports tuning and turbo since I'm never going to top 80mph. I'd rather drive fast in Forza where crashing into a wall/other cars doesn't mean that much. Most of the manuals I've found are sportier models, which add to the cost but not to the value for me.

I know that's some weak ass white people problems compared to all the heartbreak and medical issues posted recently, but where better to bitch and moan than a forum dedicated to sales on video games, in the thread specifically for the xbox store?

Oh is it pity party time with cars now? A tanker truck and trailer decided to ignore my right of way last month, and I wasn't able to stop in time. My Challenger has $17000 worth of damage, and I have at least another month without it. :fridge:

On the bright side, between you and the emoji you have in your post, only the emoji is getting its brains smashed.  Your Challenger will be back. Be glad you're safe after that type of accident. O:)

Well I'll be a monkey's Uncle. Just looked at my Rewards Dashboard, and Swing through Wild Kingdom is finally showing completed. I didn't expect MS to ever fix it.

That part is fixed. But most people aren't seeing the 500 point credit yet.

I dont think DLC is ever worth it. I mean if you pay $40 or $50 for a season pass, that is almost a full game. I dont think many DLC offer as much as a full game.
 
Like people paying $100 for FH4. I can understand it loving the series. But being rational.. you can play it free with GP, buy RDR2 and AC Odyssey in a sale for $40 and you have 3 games instead of just 1 for the exact same money.


I agree most DLC isn’t worth it. Most seem to be just extra junk. I thought the dlc for AC Origins was some of the I’ve ever played. They weren’t just junked together missions. While the skins for Arkham Knight and Most Wanted quests great, the other stuff was horrible.

Sometimes pre-ordering a game was exciting but with all of the ridiculous bundles and the patches that come out in the first couple of months, it’s not worth it to buy it until it drops in price and that includes series that I’ve loved playing.

Telltale daily news.

 

https://www.polygon....awsuit-warn-act

The employees are trying to sue for the sudden way they were fired with no notice. Sounds like Federal law might not work, but California law could. 

 

https://variety.com/...ure-1202957632/

The day before the closure, AMC (the TV network TWD is on), and Smilegate (a Korean developer who mostly does F2P games) both decided not to invest in the company. Sounds like their investments must have been the only plan they had. If they were so out of money that they couldn't pay any severance, I wonder how they intended to last long enough when "management expected confirmation of funding within a few weeks."

 

https://techraptor.n...all-storefronts

Walkind Dead Final Season being delisted everywhere. It's still up on Switch and Humble Bundle at the moment but gone from Xbox, PS4, Steam, and GOG. Supposedly GOG is specifically NOT offering refunds. Telltale hasn't made a statement, but GOG put this up on the placeholder page.

 

Telltale has requested a temporary pause of sales of The Walking Dead – Final Season. For all up to date Telltale news, please refer to their official Twitter page.

edit: whoa...whoa! They took the game clips away on the xbox store???

They came in handy when deciding to purchase a game but a hop over to YT usually results in a more helpful 15 min video you can scrub through rather than a 30 second clip of someone looking at a menu. ;)

 

At least they still have the written user reviews. Those have saved me numerous times from buying a buggy mess that can't even be finished.

Thanks for the well wishes guys. Sorry to turn the thread into a pity party, wasn't my intemtion. TBH they got me all messed up on medicines trying to figure out the next step.

Hope you are all having a great day, and preemptive congratulations to whoever wins bloomys' glorious giveaway. Seriously bloomy, you are a gentleman and a scholar. Thank you!

I was not going to enter because I don't contribute much, if anything - but it's Forza!  To be honest , This group is one of the best on the internet - Heck, I even take time to read the off topic personal Issues and really care, I don't do that on Facebook.  It has also been fun watching you all fuss for 14 years...Thanks, Bloomy for the generous contest!!

Hoping this is a timed exclusive, but it's one thing Phil's never been able to truly crack is mass Japanese development support. Would of loved to check out Rondo of Blood on the Xbox.

I don't know, I think Sony might have paid for exclusivity on this one for some reason, timed or not. There is the argument the SOTN is already BC on Xbox, but this collection screams Switch with Richter as a character, and Dracula, and Alucard all being SOTN designs in Smash Ultimate, especially since Rondo of Blood has only had PSP and Wii Virtual Console releases so far in the West. Konami has been pretty multiplatfrom friendly lately for the most part, with games like Metal Gear Survive, and the eventual port of Super Bomberman R.

 

I see two possible reasons.

 

1. They think half the colleciton being BC is good enough, and signed some sort of deal with Sony. We have very similar but reverse situation with Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner MARS being a PS4 exclusive with a PSVR mode, and ZoE HD Collection being made BC shortly after launch.

or

2. Sony has a deal related to the PlayStation Classic, to have SOTN (and hopefully MGS1) on the system, and this came about because of it.

There's nothing Phil can do. MS can try and sell the XBox to Suzuki or Nippon (Japanese, but not even related to gaming) and suddenly there'll be a flurry of activity with Japanese games on the JBox

I like how Xbox even responded to the tweet

Now let's see if we can get something similar for Destiny 2 to happen.  I know, that pie is so high in the sky that I'm not even sure it's still there.

Yeah I didn't go into a lot of detail, but I think it's safe to say that they will be getting SOTN on the PS Classic from it. I'm leaning more timed exclusive just because of the Switch opportunity and maybe Xbox can get some love from that aspect.

I bet Activision's many deals with Sony alone will keep that from happening. Both Destiny and CoD regularly have the exclusive content. I don't think they've ever commented on crossplay either.

 

I think old Bungie would push for it, modern Bungie I can't say I would expect them to, not as corporate as they seem to have become.

I would say no for D2.  I can't see them going through the trouble for crossplay at this stage of the game's lifecycle.  If they're planning to launch D3 next fall, then I would say a definite no; if they plan to delay D3 another year like they did with D2, then maybe.  I definitely see crossplay as a possibility for D3 and D4.

I see it counted in my daily total, but I can't actually verify I received the Points as I can't keep track that well. I wish they had a place to see what was rewarded, when, and what for. Something else that nobody is getting is the 2x search points. It's only mentioned on the page that outlines all three punch cards, and MS Rewards support doesn't know it exists.

GameStop has the worst website known to man.

On the 2nd someone got into my account and bought a $50 gift card and I changed the pw before they even sent the code, we locked the card and asked GameStop to delete the account and they said they did(they also said the person got in through my rewards account which I haven’t been on in years)

I screenshotted the code in case I didn’t get my money back but I did so I didn’t use it but I entered it to check if they ever deactivated it and they didn’t, then today I get an email saying I successfully changed my pw and I log on the pw is still the same but the code is now redeemed lol.

So basically someone got a free $50 consequence free cause GameStop are dumbasses with terrible site security.

I know the rewards accounts get hacked constantly that’s why you see people selling the coupons all over the internet but it seems like now since they combined the accounts regular accounts are getting accessed cause of it smh.

I did a video on the Switch version a while back:

 

 

As for some text impressions, it's similar to 10tons' other work (Crimsonland, Time Recoil, Neon Chrome, Tesla vs Lovecraft) in how it controls and feels, but the level design is similar to a Hotline Miami in that you have a building or buildings to take out bad guys in with a decent chunk of real estate outside of them to let you see where enemies are at to come up with a strategy on how to accomplish your goals. It has plenty of upgrades for your gun or yourself which you unlock from completing more goals for each level. It's a lot of fun if you're into the 10tons-style of dual-stick shooters.

Decided to work on the physical backlog and knock out minecraft story mode. Only played one episode but it's okay. I'd be really interested in seeing the sales numbers for the game or how well the show would do. The story based achievements have less than 20% of people unlocking them after episode 1, so to me that doesn't scream "people love this game enough to make a show."

Is anyone else dealing with expiring credit from Bing? If your Microsoft or Xbox cards were part of the batch that expired on 6/30, then the 90 days after they were deposited into your account is coming up in the next day or two.

I have no idea what to spend the credit on without paying full retail on games I want. Here's what I'm thinking of doing: put the expiring credit towards a preorder that doesn't release until next year, and since my credit doesn't cover the full purchase, I won't be charged until 10 days before the game releases. Until release day, I should be able to continue applying credit I earn from Microsoft Rewards. Does anyone know if I'm mistaken on any of these steps?
