XBL Deals - 2018

Went through my Xbox backlog today including X1 GwG and Game Pass games. Did an honest assesment of games I am actually interested in playing and then looked up all the "How Long to Beat" estimates. The total stands at 4156 hours for main game + extras. That does not even include DLC I own or anything PS4 exclusive. That is a number shows just how stupid I am at buying games. 

I think it also shows how stupid you are spending time documenting games instead of playing them. I say that as a person that is equally stupid and does the exact same thing.

It also shows how stupid we are by arguing about how stupid it is instead of playing games we are arguing about how he's documenting games instead of... HOLY SHIT! TIME IS A FLAT CIRCLE!

One last pointless internet argument to close the year. At least I don’t think we’ve had this one before.

Why do the math yourself when TA exists?

Where is the argument? It was a tongue in cheek comment as I said I did the exact same thing myself.

I have $25 that I'm trying to figure out how to spend before the Countdown Sale and weekly sale ends.

 

Scenario 1

 

Shikondo: Soul Eater - $7

The Lego Movie/The Lego Ninjago Movie bundle - $12.50

Escapists: Walking Dead - $5

 

Scenario 2

 

DeBlob - $4

DeBlob 2 - $6

Escapists: Walking Dead - $5

Shikondo: Soul Eater - $7

Save the other $3 for later

 

Any thoughts?  Keep in mind that I have Lego Marvel Superheroes and Lego Batman 3 already backlogged.

Hmm looks like we might be back to dollar to point purchases with MS rewards. I just purchased two items at 7.50 each and my shop history is showing 7 points for each purchase,

It could be a glitch. I have had that happen occasionally throughout the year. You should open a ticket with MS Rewards support to document you did not receive the expected rewards points for your purchases.

Well 20:1 is supposed to end on the 31st iirc so it may have rolled out a tad early. That said, I'm not super bent out of shape over a few hundred points just putting a possible warning out there.

He was talking about the future argument that you're having with him now. Quite an impressive strategy, honestly.

I got the regular version of Odyssey cuz of how long the base game is, I doubt I’ll make it to the DLC and I’d rather play AC Origins or AC Syndicate that I own both but haven’t played instead of AC3 remastered that I’ve beat before.
As far as beating all games, I figure the ones I bought are priority, GWG I don’t feel bad if I never play.


My main reason for getting the Gold edition was for the remaster sand the origins of the hidden blade dlc. You are correct how big the base game is. I wasn’t expecting so many timed daily quests there would be. I enjoy the game but Origins is my favorite since Black Flag and AC2 before that.

If you have an X1X, you really should be looking at 4k tbh, it's so worth it.


I have a 4K tv. This is for when my wife wants to play ARK and I want to use the PS4, haha

And that is always the best reason to do so.

You want to put the X1X on a HD TV and keep your PS4 on the 4K one?!?!?

Sending my xbox x back in for repair for the same problem as last time. No display detected, tried different hdmi cables and TVs. Hope they actually fix it since the warranty runs out next month.

I agree but I usually do this when I am binge watching something on Netflix. I honestly have trouble doing one thing at a time. It's a problem.

Hoping maybe someone might know - Is Star Wars Battlefront 2015 still active on Xb1? I loved playing the game when it launched and actually preferred its gameplay to BF2 2017 and with it on sale for $5 I'm curious if it's worth picking up (I played primarily on PS4) or if it's completely dead to BF2.

You think it’s the Xbox and not the TV? Never had this issue on other TVs with the Xbox x.

Is it it's outsold the PS4, XBox One and Switch combined?

TCL has many compatibility issues with Xbox One. With the 6 series I've had the over/under saturation problem, green screen, and white noise screen when I switch between hdr and standard games.  The newest TCL patch released in Nov/Dec has lessened their occurrence considerably. Though I've never had a complete drop of signal

Have to disagree with this. Might be issues with the TCL 6 series and the Xbox One X. But I have literally had zero issues with my X1X and the TCL P607. Love my TV!

So I bought the 1X on Black Friday and have been making my way through a backlog, only to realize that I'm already using up most of the 1TB. Like, I have Halo 5 on disc, but just the update to it is 55GB? Pretty ridiculous.

 

What do you all use for external hard drives? How well do WD Greens or other mechanical drives operate with it? I don't want to keep hemorrhaging money buying hard drives to store patches for games that should've been more complete when they were released.

This is the reason I buy most games digitally for the XBox One. The discs are pretty much installers for the real game and require huge downloads before being playable. Might as well skip the discs and just download the games in my opinion. I have a Western Digital 10TB USB 3.0 self powered drive myself to store most of my games. I also have a Western Digital 512GB SSD drive for games with long load times. I don't even use the XBox One 1TB internal drive.
