The new Horizon Story chapters in FH4 are fun. It's Top Gear inspired and features all British cars. I also found it the easiest to 3 star, coming up with 29/30 without much effort (rewinds ect). So now you have a new way to earn those 100 stars and Complete 40 chapters achievements easier.

I just started that, played the first 3 chapters. It’s nice having a bit of a Top Gear homage added to the game. All it needs for the Bowler challenge is Hammond yelling “I am a driving god!”

I bought Friday the 13th figured for 6.00 I'd give it a try.

Its crazy. I'm not really sure of what I'm doing but its fun. I haven't been jason yet. Kinda wish they had some training missions.

First match I whacked Jason with a baseball bat then saw a survivor carrying gas. I followed them and jumped in a boat with them and drove off.

you'll get better the more you play, and there are tons of tip videos on youtube

 

it's one of the most fun games i've ever played and i've played everything

Just double-checking... they added new stories, in addition to the four sets that were originally in the game?

Yes.  They're located in the little town south-east of the main festival site. I think they start to show up after level 50 with the new patch. (Patched my PC version, didn't see if for the X1 yet) So that brings your totals up to 50 chapters and 120 stars. I personally found them the easiest of the bunch, too.

I played about 5 matches so I feel I got my money worth out of it. I had fun with it. Its got quite a bit of cussing and its bloody. Don't play with the kids around.

I enjoyed it and will be playing more. I think its worth the 6.00. I've bought worse games for more then the asking price.

For what's it's worth my "Badlands" quest got the 20/20 login today on MS Rewards and completed and I got my 2500 points

"Broken" is a very generous way to describe the state of the "Badlands/Moon Gate" promotion. I have literally logged in every single day since the promo started on 9/7. And I only have 12 of 15 logins counted on Moon Gate. Not even sure it will register the last 3 that I need before Moon Gate expires on 11/5.

Does anyone know if I use the 14 day trial game-pass that I wouldn’t be able to purchase the 3 months for $9.99?

I wanted to grab it for halo ODST and Resident Evil but I’ve havent seen any other games I wanted it for yet.


Usually the deals like that don’t show up if you are active, and the trial counts as being on a subscription, so it’s a gamble. Sounds like the deal this time has been glitchy, so it’s up to you whether the extra 14 days is worth possibly missing the discount.
Also, ODST isn’t included in Game Pass. It’s technically an add on/DLC for Master Chief Collection, so just the main game is available on GP and you’d have to spend an extra $5 to play ODST.

Are you logging in Via xbox or mobile or pc? I've been doing all three just to make sure it goes through each day. I currently am at 15/20 days for badlands.

Nice.  Still not sure I will be 100% the game but the 100 stars achievements is on my list to still unlock.  Was hoping the DLC would add more of these story chapters.  Drifting is still going to screw me up I think.  I played a bit last night.  Saw the update but didn't really read it.  Guess it was listed there.  Saving up for the Castle.  I think I am right around 8 million.

Has anyone played the DLC for Overcooked 2? It's only 5.99 and looks like it adds some new recipes and 3 new worlds. The wife and I cleared out the bonus levels last night so I saw they dropped in some DLC with 500 more gamerscore.

It was worth picking up, especially for the addition of having a 4th star to try to earn for every level. They are super hard to get, but very rewarding

The 4th star comes without the DLC btw :), the new recipes are fun? It looked like it adds smoothies which I think is the first drink, and a water gun to clean the dishes?

One more login day for Badlands. Fingers crossed it doesn't lock me at 19/20 for the next 12 days.

Awh, my mistake. But I still think it's worth getting. Its only 12ish levels, but the water gun is a lot of fun. And the BBQ Bellows also is pretty entertaining. Kebabs are a new recipe too.

RDR2 averaging over 98% on reviews so far for those that care about such things. I can't imagine that swaying anyone at this point though as you should've known by now if you wanted it lol.

Having said that, obviously it's amazing but I really dislike games where you have to do tedious things and micromanage so I'm on the fence for that reason.

Only 98%?? Boo! What a piece of shit! It'd be a 100% and worth buying if they had a 100 person battle royale mode!

I'm getting the game, but I am also wary about the tedious stuff.  I typically ignore all that stuff in games.  I'm hoping there's an easy mode or that the tedious stuff doesn't have a huge impact (i.e., you don't necessarily have to eat 3 meals per day).

 

I don't understand why developers think that kind of detail is good in games.  I understand the desire for games to be more realistic, but there's a point where it just becomes a pointless waste of time.  I already cut my fingernails and poop in real life, I don't need to do those regularly in a game, too.

Showed the GF a trailer for RDR2 and now even she wants to play it (or watch me play it). I think the only way I could get it, knowing it's 50-80 hour game, is if she was also interested since it would otherwise be such a distraction. 

 

Unrelated - anyone see the new Halloween yet? I mostly enjoyed it but there were a few plot elements that held it back / made it campier than I'd prefer.

Somehow my MS rewards streak got reset today because it thinks I didn't log in yesterday, but I did log in and did two of the three things (I skipped the four question quiz).  Is there any avenue to contact someone to have this fixed?

SIX min WHISTLE

Posted 25 October 2018 - 03:49 PM

I've got to say every time I try to mod anything manually I'm reminded why I prefer consoles.

 

-Boot up New California and get massive, unplayable screen tearing, even with V-sync enabled.

-Look up fix, tweak some settings and change one character in the .ini file

-game is no longer tearing, and frame rate is floating between 80 and 90 FPS

-Bethesda's shitty engine can't deal with higher than 60 FPS, some things happen too fast if too high

-no option to lock the frame rate itself, only enable V-sync

-back to square one

-use third party graphics card software to lock FPS at 60. Game floats around 55 FPS, screen tearing back again, even with V-sync

On the plus side I got about $40 back from my local taxes, so I guess I'm getting RDR. I'm guessing Fallout 76 is going to be a shitshow at launch, so a Christmas pick up makes sense to me.

The streaks are for doing the 3 daily tasks, not for merely logging in.  Also, the tasks reset at midnight local time for me, while the search counters reset a few hours later, so if you generally do things later in the evening, you could miss tasks without missing the searches.

Worth noting that the online portion of the game launches into beta in November, so we may yet get a Battle Royale mode.  8-)

Will the reviews be revised if the mode launches, accordingly?  :-k

I saw it a few days ago. I'm not huge into horror movies unless they're zombie movies but I wasn't doing anything and I got invited so I figured why not. I enjoyed it. There were a few spots where I thought either the acting or something else was a bit goofy but overall had a good time.

There were a couple of moments that had me and my wife scratching our heads. And the bodycount and gore seemed a bit more in line with modern horror. Overall, though, we really dug it.

That's how I hoped all multiplatform comparisons would turn out when I decided to get an X last year, and they have seemed few and far between. Glad to see this.

I thought the dumped the single player and put in the battle royale mode?
