I just read that Burger King restaurants in the UK are giving Gamepass trials when you buy a King Box meal. The Coke Freestyle machines also have special edition flavors based on Halo 5, Sea of Thieves, Rocket League, and Fallout 4.

I don't think you're In the minority here, not in the specific market we're talking about. I think the vast majority of people who care enough to discuss games prefer actual hardware, if only because of the lackluster offerings of OnLive and even PS Now.The quality just isn't enough for most, and that's without going into the concerns about not actually owning something and the impermanence of digital only goods. One other thing that's coming to mind is price. I think we have a long time before most people would be OK with paying $60 for a streaming only game.

 

I'm sure the landscape will be different 10 and 20 years down the line when younger generations grow up with this, but hopefully the technology improves to a level that people like us find acceptable too, while still having the option of dedicated hardware. We're really just starting to see companies look into this market. With Capcom and Ubisoft's Japan only Switch "releases" of Resident Evil 7 and the new Assassin's Creed.

True about $60 game, but what about $10 a month for Game Pass and/or EA Access?  These would be very attractive value propositions  and another step in the direction of antiquating physical media.

Finally got the achievement for all roads driven in Forza. A stupid driveway had me stumped for an hour.

Man I don't think I'll be getting that one... it was a big enough pain just finding the 12 beauty locations... couldn't find the derwent water location for a spell.

I'm hoping for a better Nier Automata deal than the last one... Can anyone recommend 'We Happy Few' in it's current form?

Think I might re-up on EA Access soon. Burnout Paradise, Fight Night, and I bet NBA Live 19 will be there in a couple months as well.

Any thoughts on Baja?  Tempted by it for $6.  Anyone played the remake?

 

Also, is Axiom Verge as awesome as I've heard?  Worth it for $10?

 

All that reminding people to get FH2 stuff before delisting and I forgot to get the IGN pack before it happened.  I did notice that the tokens are still available as opposed to previous games.  Also, the 360 version still appears to be available.  

 

Last chance to get Crysis 2 achievements.  I think the 11th is the last days for those servers.

It's one of the best Metroid-likes out there and some of the proceeds go towards helping pay for health care for Tom Happ's son.

For the Mark of the Ninja upgrade, does anyone know if you have to have Gold to take advantage of the deal? I think we bought it on my fiancé’s account and she game shares my Gold so we wanted to double check. Figured I’d ask here because I wasn’t sure where to begin to search for an answer

I doubt it would have any bearing on the upgrade deal.

Thanks for the reply. Did some more research into our accounts and it turns out I’m the one who got it on 360 anyway, so it’s a moot point after all. Might look into that special edition on 360 quick so the upgrade would be free.

I got the 2500 point gift card on my main account but not my second account. I had to use the Rewards app on my X1. Nice to have such a return for what is a few minutes of free time every day.

The $200 trade in toward the X1X at Gamestop is back til 10/28. If you still have a VCR model, this is a pretty good deal. $250 for any PS4 or the X1S.

Hey cool, thanks for the heads up. I had a buddy of mine asking about this trade in deal a few weeks back.

Axiom Verge is definitely worth $10. Metroid is my favorite series, and I really enjoyed it. That said, the narrative is lacking. I was hooked on it from start to finish, but when I was done, I knew I had no intention of returning to it again.

For me, it was so hyped up that it couldn't live up to the hype. But I still loved the game while it lasted.

Here's to hoping NBA Live sees a big discount like the one that was pulled from PSN last week. I'm guessing the sale was supposed to start on both this week but somebody jumped the gun.

. Somebody already has it for $29 in the trade thread, but I dont imagine it'll take long to hit that number in the marketplace.

I actually found the road achievement easier then getting all 200 boards. That one was only a pain because some of them are the roofs or tops of things.

The road one I just did in sections. I would start in one area and finish it then move to the next. Kind of in a grid way.

I've not tried for the roads achievement in Horizon 4 yet - still just playing though.

 

I'm kinda jaded though, since I found all but one blasted road on Horizon 3, and lost count of the hours I spent trailing around trying to find the damn thing. The thought of it is still painful.

Same thing for me and Horizon 1. I was missing like 1 board and checked over and over again and was never able to get it. I was like forget this crap lol.

For FH4, some of those bonus boards on top of things can be broke easier if you do some danger signs. A few will set up ramps that allow you to get them very easily.

Is that how you get those? There was a house with no jumps I could not figure out the other day.

Leveling up Danger Signs, or getting lucky with a Forzathon live event that uses that Danger Sign.  Though some of them can apparently be gotten without the ramp, like the one on the church.  There are YouTube videos for that.  Wouldn't surprise me if people figured out how to get others as well.

A tip that worked for me while finding the last roads in horizon 3 was to decrease the in game brightness to the lowest possible setting, then look on the map to see which roads aren't marked. It makes it a lot easier to see which roads have a tiny bit left.
