No BC announcement today, it appears. I guess the OG Xbox stuff is supposed to keep us satisfied for a bit...

Came home yesterday to find my sons xbox saying there was an error and the update couldn’t be installed, tried a bunch of shit and finally had to google the error and found people saying to do a hard reboot and opt out of the preview program and that might fix it, I was scared to do that since I thought it might Fuck up his xbox.

Well it at least let me get him back online doing that but then he got the update anyway and like you said it thinks his X1 is brand new and now all his pins are gone which is weird since I swear those are tied to the account not xbox, don’t know why he was in the preview anyway since I refuse to do it anymore since my original X1 got fucked up by getting an error during update installation a year ago.

I had that problem, but I didn't have to get out of the Preview Program.  I reset the display settings and it still didn't work, but I moved the console to another TV and it started working.

Just one 360 Game on sale? (and one of the alien breed games that are on sale every week..) that's sad...

I'd say it's insulting. What's Microsoft's agenda, exactly? To end support for the Xbox 360 as nonchalantly as possible?

Episode 1 is this week's sale, Episode 3 was part of last week's sale and Episode 2 was on sale the week before that. They can't even get the order right...

360 sales have been getting smaller and smaller week by week. Considering they got backwards compatibility on the One and Game Pass, uh, yeah. They've been rotating the same games in and out of sale for years now and that console has ended production for about a two years and four days and no new games in I don't know how long. 360 Gotta die eventually.

Not really.  I applied the update and the console didn't like it.  Maybe slightly different, but not totally different lol

Not that the Xbox Live Party system is bad but more options is always good. I like the Discord app.

Picked up Yooka Laylee and while I was on the site they asked me to do a survey so I did it and got a $5 Xbox code for it.

Thanks for the heads up.

 

Like others, I was asked to do the survey last night and said "nope."  I then saw your message and kicked myself.

 

Just now, I was asked again, and did it this time.  Got the 5 dollar gift card!

 

I was using a different computer in a different location compared to last night.  So its worth a try for those who've already turned it down if you want another shot.

 

Meanwhile, with this lackluster week, I'm really considering Darkest Dungeon.  

 

Apparently, this is the last week to get both it and the DLC for 25 dollars.  After this week, they'll need to be purchased separately for 35 total.

I don't think this came up yet. If you own PUBG they're finally doing a test server for Xbox, which will allow you to play the desert map before it's official release next month. It shows up as PUBG Test Server under ready to install. I get the feeling that they're use of this method means it will run even worse than the normal game, and I'd guess your BP is separate.

Another Humble Bundle for Playstation. This one is kind of hampered by a lot of PS3 and Vita stuff, but still pretty good overall and great if you own all three systems. Sega and Capcom stuff. I really wish MS would get their shit together and allow an Xbox version.

Did you actually have to purchase something for the survey to pop up?

I Bought this a few hours ago and I don't know what kinda bullshit sorcery Capcom has me under where I somehow re buy their games across all consoles and have no idea how or why. I'm sure as Fuck not going to play that Resident Evil REmake on my Gamecube, PS3, XBox One or PS4, but here we are! On the plus side to all this I now have an excuse to replay Binary Domain.

Ha I wasn't going to get it for the Xbox One, but then that really great Resident Evil "humble bundle/price error" happened. I did play through Jill's campaign this summer, and had already forgot a lot of the game from my PS One or Game Cube playing days that I enjoyed it.

360 Gotta die eventually.

Sure, and I'll be sad to see it happen, but couldn't it be handled with some dignity? An official announcement and, while they're at it, one last fire sale would be a more adequate send-off.

Having a single Xbox 360 game on sale seems cruel. Microsoft themselves published numerous games on the platform.

I've just been taking advantage of any and all bing/edge points and flipping them on hot deals to bring down my cost for the last few 360 games I want

 

I have a huge collection but have a handful that have never ended up on a digital sale, gonna try to grab them before they end up getting delisted or something rather than waiting for sales that aren't coming

 

been a long time since I've seen much on the weekly sale that isn't in the rotation we see semi often anyway

I see what you’re saying now, I was more stressed about the error getting the update since that bricked my console in the past.

I hear ya.  I've actually been meaning to compile my want list for a while now, but sifting through the 1000+ titles and associated DLC is a bit daunting.  The delistings will only increase though, so I do need to bite the bullet at some point and just do it.

I'm in the same boat.  Slowly in the process of trying to turn the remnants of my 360 collection digital, mainly for connivence and storage.  And the arrival of the BC tax on digital games has not helped., but I do appreciate the feature- so I'm happy to pay for it.

For what it's worth I was on the 360 Dashboard and there was a "tile ad" for the 75% off Alien Breed, so I clicked on it just for fun. Fez was also in there. I already own that one so couldn't tell you a price.

I just searched the store and it shows up as $9.99 for me. It doesn't appear to be on sale.

Still hoping to come across cheaper than $10 copies of some of the Star Wars games. My new job has inspired me to start back up searching for retro stuff in general so that's helped track down some. I did find two great condition PS2 controllers at $4 each today, so still pretty decent.


I am with you on this....starting last year I started collecting retro games in full force. Adding super cheap ps2, Og XBox, and Gamecube games to my backlog is far more rewarding than I could have imagined.

pretty solid price for yooka laylee. also Overcooked is a steal for $5.61. well worth the price.

overcookef is on sale as often as NBA 2k Bling these days.

Thursday's B/C original xbox games are all available on the 360 marketplace if you still have a 360 around. Spend that fake money.

Darkest Dungeon is great. The expansion is great as well, but it does make a difficult game even harder.

Pretty surprised that Sea of Thieves was the #2 seller in the NPD for March behind Far Cry 5. Figured most people would just have gotten GamePass if they wanted to play it.

Also Rare’s biggest debut ever.
