I didn’t have it. Pretty sure this is a “new”freebie.

 

 

Nope, different one.

The other one was the first DLC, "They Shall Not Pass". Now it's the second one.

 

You should ad it to your list, Reedus.

 

Thank you both! Picked it up, at this rate we'll have all the DLC free by the end of the summer. (Fingers crossed)

Since it's on sale, does anyone know a fix for Toy Soldiers War Chest freezing at the main menu? I tried to play it a couple weeks back and couldn't get it to load. I could play the tutorial if I sign in as someone else, but then it just goes back to the main menu and freezes up again. Google suggests changing the date & time on your ps4, but that's not even an option on x1.

I really liked the first two games, but I barely touched the x1 game and I think it's because it just doesn't work.

Shadow Complex is one of the few reasons that I wanted to pick up a cheap 360 back in 2011, it gave me some serious Super Metroid nostalgia. easy to recommend, I may have to get the remaster just to have it on current gen.

Glad you mentioned this.  My son was telling me he had problems and I told him to try reinstalling it.  I figured he must not have tried very hard to fix it, but this sounds really crazy if it's that bad.

Is it though? I mean a "metroidvania" type game? I always thought it was just a linear military side scroller, and never paid much attention to it even though it gets praise. Might bite if its not linear.

Think I'll finally buy Castlevania:  SOTN.

 

Just wish I didn't have to go fetch an ethernet cord and run it from my router to my 360 just to put the old machine on line so I can buy it with MS credit.  

 

It's a pain in the ass, Microsoft.  Just let me use my damn credit on your website when buying 360 games.

Have you read any previews or reviews of the game? It's as metroidvania as a game can get.

2nd Anniversary event for Overwatch starts today. A few new skins, some dances for the 3 characters that weren't out last year, and a new map for Deathmatch. The cool thing with this event is that ALL previous special modes from past events will be active during it, and all previous cosmetics are available as well. 



Overwatch LEGO announced, no real details.

Week 4 of Fortnite's Season 4 is up, Jetpack added, return of the all Gold items mode, and a mode out Friday that is shotgun and jetpack focused.

I wonder if they applied something similar to the Gears Gnasher RNG mechanics for that, or if they've implemented something consistent.

That Brigitte anniversary skin is fantastic. I got the sweet doomfist skin in my box.

Do you know if the past event items will be in the boxes or if they're only obtainable through purchase with coins?

There is basically a meme on the Fortnite Reddit of the point blank blast from pump shotgun doing just 9 damage, though I think that was caused by a glitch that has been long fixed.

Everything is in the boxes, though I don't know what the percentage breakdown is. I'd guess chances of getting what you want out of the old stuff is going to take some extreme luck, though i think you're guaranteed one Anniversary specific item in each box. It's pretty cool they gave us one free guaranteed legendary this time, I got Pirate Junkrat. I think the only new skin I really want is Symettra.

 

This first week's playlist option is kind of rough for grinding boxes. Lucioball, 3v3, two different Deathmatch playlists, and Mystery Heroes. One other new thing is Competitive FFA Deathmatch.

Personally, I'm hoping they're either:

 

A) only purchasable with coins

B) in the boxes along with the guaranteed Anniversary event item

 

Since if they're just in the regular box pool it will dilute the chances of getting an anniversary item too much.

 

That said, I'd expect them to make it one giant pool because that's the method that will most incentivize purchases.

Awesome game, but just fyi its been $2.50 in the past months iirc.

And we still cant buy 360 games with credit on the X1? You'd think with how they hype the BC capability, that theyd have that set up by now.

That sounds like bad pull. I got every ability in the game thanks to Guild and rare motherbox challenges, but I'm missing a ton of skins and it bugs the hell out of me.

Thanks for the heads up.  Think I'll still buy it, though, even if it's been cheaper before.  I'll consider it "stupid tax" I'm paying for not getting it previously when it was $2.50.

 

It really is a great game.  I had written up about 6 paragraphs of why I love this game so much, and what it meant to me as a kid, but then deleted it because I figured it would be boring to people who aren't me ;)  So instead I just complained about my ethernet cable and left it at that.

I've completed hundreds of multiverse events that grant random abilities and still nothing. Also, when they introduced the Legendary Multiverses, the second one for Catwoman gives an ability upon completion, which I'm pretty sure is "Cat Call". I hope WB Games doesn't force Netherrealm to pull this crap again with MK11.

Man, I've got to get into a more active guild.  I haven't received a Guild motherbox in weeks, and I'm always doing what I can to support.  I've yet to pull "Cat Call" either.  I've only pulled three abilities, I think, altogether.

Yeah, I think I'm over the RNG shit for fighting games. Just give me a huge Krypt to unlock stuff in the new MK. If I was in your shoes, I would be even more over it than I am. 

 

I will admit though, it did keep me playing regularly for almost a year straight.

Which three? I think my first ones were for Batman, Black Adam, and Green Lantern. I can't quite remember, though. I liked that I unlocked them fast because it was gameplay related stuff (also surprised that I unlocked all of them on the Xbox and PS4 considering so many people have had trouble), I really just wish I had unlocked more skins. I love some of those crazy Batman colors I still don't have. 

 

But yeah, I forget which guild I'm in on Xbox (it's one with a long spanish name), but they are amazing. We always complete the weekly challenges.

Glad everything is in the boxes. Gives me less chance to get repeats. I have so much unlocked that I get basically all event items in each box when they're going on because of the calculation of not giving repeats as often as possible. The 3 boxes I unlocked today were just 12 anniversary items.

I don't know if I got good teams but I won 3 games in a row for lucioball. Unless you mean they're rough for XP towards leveling up and getting boxes, which is the case.

I'm interested in seeing where I place for comp FFA since it's basically my best game mode unless I'm with amazing players. Think I got platinum for comp elimination. I'm like 35 points from getting my first gold weapon and if comp rewards the top 4 as a win like standard it should be fairly easy getting those wins.

I have Batman, Green Lantern, Captain Cold, and I think I just got a TMNT one a week or two ago.  Oh, and a Hellboy one that takes up both slots.  I haven't played around with them too much though, outside of the GL one, Turbine Smash, that I like cause he can meter burn it into throwing it at the opponent.  The skins are pretty cool.  Some I like, others are meh.  I'm trying to incorporate some of the comics in them.  For GL, for instance, I prefer the alternate Rage color over the regular because it actually makes him look like a Red Lantern.

 

If you get a chance, let me know what guild you are in and if there's openings.  I would love to join in.  I was hoping there was a CAG guild, but I haven't found one.

I honestly think Lucioball is a pretty good way to get your arcade wins in. Biggest tip I can give is aim for the top half of the ball when you boop to hit it in the air. 90% of players I encountered today didn't seem to know this. With that and a little basic positioning, I went 8-0 with randoms.

I would have read all 6 paragraphs.  SOTN is one of my favorite games ever.  I've played through it more any other game I've ever owned.  Its largely the reason I keep my Vita.
