The quest tracking on the rewards app is trash.

Is soul caliber 6 worth picking up at BB for $35? I haven’t picked up a good fighting game in awhile and having Geralt and eventually 2B to play as is very tempting.

Yeah, for $35 it's worth it.

Game has a lot of things I take issues wiith but it's a very solid fighting game overall and redeems Namco for dumping that piece of shit Dragonball FighterZ on us earlier this year. Just make sure you have an Xbox One X or you'll have to deal with 1 minute load times.

Are sales live for silver members? Asking for a friend.

Yeah, not quite as good as the gold prices but they are up.

Dunno, but there's a $1 Gold offer for a month. Just get that and turn off autorenewal right away.

Is FH4 worth it or should I just stay with FH3? Also AC: Odyssey the extra gear you get in the ultimate ed is it worth the extra money or just stick with gold?

FH4 is very good, surprised me how much better than FH3, added a whole lot of new stuff.

I just started up FFXIII and the opening scene looked fantastic.  However, I don't seem to have my game save anymore so it looks like I'll be starting from scratch.

I had to go back on the 360 and save my game to the cloud to sync it on xbox one

I bought:
Super Bomberman R
Goat Simulator DLC bundle
Mortal Kombat XL
Batman Return to Arkham
Ben 10

I think I'll get one higher priced game and be done with this sale.
Prob either Assassins Creed Odyssey, Far Cry 5 or Nier Automata...

Or maybe Ghost Recon Wildlands and Shadow of War... can't decide.

It's tough because I know AC Odyssey and Far Cry 5 will be much cheaper early next year, so will I play it over Christmas Break.... that's the Q.


Also, welcome back Schmidt to VGK and glad to see the 6-3 win... we need a lot more wins.

Final Fantasy XIII looks gorgeous with the X enhancements. For once Sony fans have to live without a Final Fantasy goodie. 🙂

Far Cry maybe, Assassin's Creed Origins held pretty close to $30 for most of the year, until we got within a couple months of Odyessy. If there really isn't a new game next year, I could see it staying higher for a while. Out of your choices I'd still recommend Nier the most.

So, on top of what I already picked up, I might buy some discounted MS funny money from Raise and pick up some more stuff because I think I've sequestered my rational inner adult. I'm looking at Far Cry 5 Deluxe (you know, because it comes with FC3 and those fricking Komodo Dragons), SotTR Deluxe, Black Friday, Monster Hunter World, and maybe... maybe CoD WW2.

I know it's a big sum... but my backlog hungers.

Anyone want to talk me out of any of them or do I feast?

I believe only the gold version of FC5 comes with FC3 since it comes with the season pass.

I went upstairs and turned on the :360: to do just that, but there was no record of FFXIII on any of that console's storage options (internal HDD, USB HDD, cloud save space).  So if I did indeed play the game (99% sure), it was on a console that I no longer own.

It just dawned on me how much of a missed opportunity Mutant Football League: Dynasty Edition had by not simply just calling it Die Nasty Edition.

That's the one I meant. The $45 one. And the Croft version of SotTR.

Very good, I've had lots of fun since picking it up. Create a Soul has become meme-worthy, you can do both very good and horribly awful things with it. Don't know what's bad with DBF, it's a good successor to MvC3.

I've been thinking about picking up QUBE2, but it looks like the price jumped back up to regular price today for me. I'm hoping this is just a bug, since Major did mention it on his list. Anyone else having similar issues?

So how do you feel now that we know the backwards compatible version of XIII is actually the best version available and that it received source quality fmv files, video files that are better than those available on PC?

I felt like an idiot for leaping to conclusions too early. How did it feel going through five days worth of posts just so you could do this?

Got the Borderlands Handsome Collection for some same screen co-op with the wife and Shadow of War with season pass. Was going to get it physical but I liked that it is play anywhere.

Ordered FFXV from BB and DQ11 - outside of any switch eshop deals I am done for a while buying shit. Like three weeks at least

Yup, showing full price for me. I was also planning on picking it up, was just waiting until I got a few more Bing points to cash in.

I had Fallout finished overnight and it had another 48.39 gig patch waiting for me this morning. Looked it up and this isn't some weird installation error, the new patch is actually that big. Hopefully that isn't a normal thing, knowing Bethesda I wouldn't be surprised if massive re-downloads are an issued. I'm guessing the items in the Atom shop are going to work like Creation Club content on Fallout 4 and Skyrim, meaning every console player will have to download the files no matter what, but costumes and emote shouldn't take up too much space.

 

I guess I'm not playing until tonight.

Thinking about getting a new tablet for work trips, e-reader, offline movies, etc. and wondering what folks here would recommend. The iPad Mini 4 for $300 at BB seems like a good price, but I really hate managing content through iTunes and don't use a Macbook etc. Surprisingly, Apple has the lower cost/quality ratio than Samsung's Android tablets, at least from what I'm seeing currently.

I don't mind holidays per se but dear god do I hate 99% of Xmas music. It was playing at an outdoor mall 3 weeks ago while I was on a work trip, which is my own personal hell, esp. when they have the nerve to play it before Thanksgiving.

Wish I could get the GF hooked on Borderlands. I think with enough time I could but it's hard to find a game where she's specifically saying, "Can we play more of ________ tonight??" Sometimes I think I've found one and I'm wrong.
