Well GS is currently offering $2 base for MGS V. Guess I will keep it.

Welp, looks like I'll do my quarterly plug-in of the old 360.  Have the original games (not this latest batch) gone on sale at all before?

fuzion frenzy went on sale for $5 shortly after it became BC.


The game sucks? Yeah? OK. Tell me about the achievements/trophies.

I didn't see it posted, but Bing has double searches going on now - you can earn 300 points for PC searches instead of the usual 150.

FYI, you can just do PC searches on your Xbox One. Just log into your account with the Microsoft Edge browser app. It even counts for the 20 points Edge bonus, which is recent on console. Doing it on your Xbox is handy when you don't want to turn on your computer or in between games.

So you just paid full price to add a game to your backlog?

 

Speaking of... which is the best of the old Star Wars games?  I remember playing a fun one on my N64, but haven't played any of the Xbox ones.  Do they have actual campaigns?

I didn't pay a dime to buy it, although I did spend a little at redbox to get some trade ins, that paid for the stone mason edition in full. God of war 3 got beat in just under 8 hours, so it was just a speed bump in the backlog.

I'm kinda mad...Iw as there through the trivia question thing when the first question showed up (with Dizzy as answer) my browser was acting up, when I rejoined the stream about 3 minutes later the question was gone and question 2 was already there..so no megapack for me hrm...

On another note I just got Griffin through the challenge in less than 2 hours. Wondering why they didn't give things away through challenges before...way easier to keep track and actually get the reward.

Sucks about missing the pack.  I don't think they were up for quite 10 minutes (I think the 2nd was up for closer to 8 than 10).  Then there were the people complaining in the stream that they didn't realize they had to click submit in the quests tab after answering each question to be able to answer subsequent ones.  Or the flurry of posts when the stream is about to end and people need X minutes to complete the weapon quest.

 

The devs said they had trouble getting challenges to work with the game, since they didn't have them implemented before release.  No excuse there except poor planning.  They also didn't implement proper achievement tracking for everything in Gears 4 (e.g., the war journal tracks the ribbons unlocked, but achievement tracking doesn't).  They at least made some progress there, since some achievements do have tracking while I don't think any did in Gears Ultimate Edition.

So Super Mega Baseball 2 will be free when it comes out? Hope MS paid them a pretty penny then.

A big Halo Online El Dewrito update released yesterday. I didn't think to download it yesterday but I'll be checking it out after work tonight. The backstory on this is long but basically this is a heavily modded version of the Russia-only F2P Halo Online that has slowly been removing all the junk added and essentially reverting it to Halo 3's multiplayer for PC. The new update made huge steps in this regard so all of the weird UI and ability changes are gone, and we essentially have Halo 3 on PC, with a server browser and a massively supercharged Forge. I played it a while back and had fun, so I assume it's only better. System requirements aren't that high, and it has full controller support now. 

 

 

Definitely worth checking out if you like the Bungie Halo games, and the download is under 2 gigs. There were over 3000 players on last night, so I think their servers were having issues, but I think it was only affecting their official servers and not the customs people set up. I'm hoping MS continues to ignore them, but I think the hammer will come down eventually. This is the most traction it's gotten yet.

MGS5 got a Pro patch shortly after PS+

Hope they do the same with X.

Amazing month for GWG. You get the third highest rated X1 game (MGS5 according to MC), most likely the best baseball game, a classic collection of Sega's best beat em up series AND the Amazing Vanquish.

 

Of course I bought MGSV used during the #FuckKonami movement and digitally for a friend at $10. Now it goes GWG. Figures.


... go to sleep.

Ground Zeros is on Game Pass, not MGS V.


Not at the moment, but it was when I initially got game pass

I managed to get it running and just played for a few games. There are a few oddities, like the option of having sprint if the host allows it, all of the weapon and vehicle models seem to be from the original Halo Online so are either custom or from Reach and 4, and items can still be enabled from the microtransaction weapons of Online as well. It does still have a toned down version of the Online HUD as well.

 

It's way more polished than what I played months back. Well made menus and full controller support aside from chat, and the added ALL the controller configurations from 3, Reach, and 4. I wasn't getting totally destroyed by the M+KB players but hard to say if that will stay the same.

I see the major issue they have now. Because so many people are hosting games at once, the server list itself takes a long time to load and is pretty laggy while doing so. Once you can get into the game itself it runs great, and they're working on a fix.

 

thanks for sharing this! although i won't be using it myself, it's really interesting. I wonder if my bootcamp'd 2012 MacBook Pro could run it.

I'd say it's worth trying, I looked at it in task manager and it was only using a little over a gig of ram with fairly low CPU usage too. It has graphics settings you could turn down as well. It was designed to run on the toasters of three years ago for the Russian F2P market, with the base code of 3 obviously being pretty low spec by 2015's standards.

Pretty big deal to get a brand new $30 game that is likely to get good reviews for GwG IMO. That alone makes it a good month.

Wow I'm pleasantly shocked at getting Super Mega Baseball 2 free at launch. That's almost like when PS+ got Rocket League at launch even though I know nobody will agree with me lol. Despite having no license the first one was a blast and as someone who puts countless hours into The Show every year I can acknowledge the greatness that is Super Mega Baseball.

I was able to successfully get refunded for MGS V since I bought it on the spring sale on 4/9 and never played it. Awesome month for Xbox players!

Are there customization options or downloadable rosters maybe? I feel like the lack of official MLB teams would bother me too much while playing a baseball game.
That would be cool

I get that and if I didn't have The Show to scratch that itch maybe I wouldn't be so fond of SMB. I know that sounds weird but I guess for me it's a better supplement than if it's your only baseball game. The first one had a few different customization options and you could name the players whatever. So it was fun for me to go in and put my friends and family in it. It's all about the gameplay though and it's top notch.

I already own the 360 GWGs but I didn't pay much for them. Have no interest in baseball, but happy for the people who do.

 

Have only played MGS1-2 but will probably take V for a spin.

 

Not a system seller? When was the last time Xbox had a "system seller" LMAO. When was the last time Xbox had a game with over a 90 metacritic let alone be in contention for game of the generation?

360 had a ton of system sellers. Halo 3, Gears 2, Mass Effect (at the time). Lots of exclusives people bought 360s to play. This generation, games like Gears 4 and Halo 5 are very good games and I enjoy playing them both, but they have far more competition on the platform for MP and aren't really attracting new players to the platform/brand the way their predecessors did.

 

Forza Horizon 3 is the only exclusive which scored above a 90 this generation, to answer your question.

 

I'm not sure what you mean by "contention for game of the generation," I never suggested anything to that effect.

MGS V is a pretty interesting game, I'll warn you and everyone else getting through the first couple hours is rough. It's kind of like a long un-skippable cut scene. After that though the game really opens up.

TIL there's a specific sound when you're near the hatch in Dead By Daylight.

Yeah, it's the easiest way to find it unless you spotted it during the match before hand. Do you mostly play killer or survivor?

GWG for May:

X1:
Super Mega Baseball 2
MGS V

I would love to hear the backstory with MGS V and Game Pass.  It had one of (if not THE) shortest tenures on Game Pass.  It was removed like 2 or 3 months after it was added.  I wonder if that was because they were planning for it to be a GwG, or if it was so rarely downloaded/played on Game Pass that they decided to remove it and make it a GwG.

 

Either way, looking forward to trying it out finally.  I never did when it was on GP because it seemed like a huge and involving game.

 

Started kingdom new lands last night and got to day 8 but after day 5 or 6 I no longer was finding chests that contained munny or my villagers stopped giving me munnny.Can someone who has played this tell me how to make munny?

I gotchu.  (I'm only using spoiler tags to cut down on space; there are no real spoilers in case anyone was wondering.)

Its probably not as interesting as you might think. WWE 2K17 was just added FEB 1, 2018 and its already leaving on May 1, 2018. WWE 2K16 was up for many months. I'm guessing they have contracts for these games at 3, 6, and 12 months.

Two of those games I don't own, but one of which is a baseball game so I'm torn if that counts as a loss or a win if I get a baseball game that doesn't have robots, violence or Mario.

It's one of those that's really good and didn't get noticed until well after the fact. If you like Platinum's games it's quite good.
