Do you have a link to the actual promotion? Didn't get the email and would be interested if it's not targeted.


No, unfortunately. Only seems to be in the email itself. Maybe they haven’t updated the web yet?

For anyone looking, this is the subject of the email:

“Your mission awaits: free John Wick movie with purchase of select movie!“

A bit off topic but for those of you with a 4K TV and love movies, Apple is having an insane sale on iTunes. There’s over 100 4K movies on sale for $9.99 or less. Some will port to Vudu.

Is there a way to browse the store on the web? I don't feel like turning on my pc and it's not letting me do anything on phone/tablet.

Bought Hat in Time as soon as I got home. After hearing them rave about it on Co-Optional I've been waiting for a sale.

While people are discussing Crawl, this may be my only opportunity I'll ever have to shamelessly brag about the fact that I'm the only person on Trueachievements ever to get all achievements in Crawl...

 

Yep.  In the entire world (of trueachievements).  Just me.

 

But all bragging aside (Seriously.  Just me.), I had a lot of fun with the game.  Many of the hardest achievements are single-player only or so grindy that they should only be attempted in single player.

 

Believe it or not.... I actually had more fun in single player than co-op.  Because... I got so good at the game from getting those damn single player achievements, that it became no longer fun to play with friends... :(

 

Solid 7 out of 10 for me.

Before anyone buys Friday the 13th, please be aware the game has no dedicated servers.

 

Which means that one player is always host.  As soon as that player is killed, he will quit, which kicks everyone back to title screen.  No one gets XP.  

 

I'd only recommend the game if you have MANY friends to play with.

 

Also, there is much trolling in public games.  Experienced players will literally dance around an inexperienced Jason.  And the game doesn't end until all counselors are dead (or 50 minutes have passed), so if you're that Jason who is fighting a troll counselor, it becomes 50 minutes of frustration as he knocks you down, teabags you, knocks you down, begins dancing, knocks you down, etc.  You can rage quit.  But that ALSO kicks everyone to title screen.  No one gets XP.

 

Source:  I bought the game in October and played for a few days, then deleted it forever.

As a counterpoint: Hosts don’t quit that often. It is something that only happens rarely nowawdays and was at its worst back in the fall when people were still mad that the game got patched to stop counselors from killing one another. I play with my brother on the game frequently (only in public games) and it’s incredibly easy to find a group that will join up with you. It’s even easier to find a game if you add yourself to one of the Friday the 13th clubs that exist. There’s honestly only two bad Jasons in the game, so even a super inexperienced player should have no problems killing most counselors. There’s lots of cool people in there that play daily.

Source: me. Been playing the game since like June last year. And it was my most played multiplayer game on Xbox last year. Though I have finally come around on Dead By Daylight, I still believe Friday the 13th is the far superior game.

Just imagining a brand new Jason going up against a person that has been playing the game since June of last year - with it being his most played game - really makes me cringe.  

 

Hope you dont dance too much while he's flailing at you.

There is a virtual cabin you can enter.  I think it's first person, and there's a few puzzles to solve, and it's full of fan service, I've heard.  But it was released after I quit.

 

Also, you can play as Jason against AI counselors.  I never tried it, but - when it was released - people were upset on reddit that the AI was laughably bad.  There were some youtube vids made of how bad the AI is.  But - again - it was released after I quit, so can't speak for it.  It may have improved or maybe reddit was just being reddit.

Thanks I was considering it but not having servers means I am not interested.  I recall dealing with this on Uncharted 3.  The 3 person co-op was lots of fun but as you said if the host bails you are usually screwed.  Finally got tired of that and traded the game (way back when it was new).

I never run into Jason most games. Just focus on objectives and escape.

I don’t want to be one of those people that just say git gud, but there is a way to play this game, be successful and not a troll and probably 80% of players that are still playing play that way. There is a super healthy community to this game that has always been there if you’re willing to spend time with it. Sure, it can be unforgiving if you’re just starting out, but there’s not that many tea baggers. They’ll usually just knock you down and run away now.

Do you mean when you go to rebuy it it doesn’t charge you? Jade empire is showing up as 9.99 but I already own it. On the marketplace it shows I own it just not the Xbox itself.

50 minutes?  the games last 20 minutes are you sure you played the game?

 

also the game is getting dedicated servers so the host can't just rage quit causing everybody to not get XP

 

just like most games it takes practice to get good at it, yes it has many warts but it's one of the most fun games i've ever played in my life

Hell yeah! I'm down to play most of the time. I'm moving next week so I'll be without internet for a while, but until them I'm down to play. My brother and I play at least 2-4 times a week and at least twice on weekends and every time we play it's for at least two hours.
