What was the subject headline of the e-mail?

A very spam filter friendly one:

 

" Your $25 gift card is here! "

 

it's from Microsoft Movies & TV

Devil's Cartel is the latest game in the series, and the best in my opinion. The one that was on GWG was the first one, which doesn't hold up well. In the spirit of the game, you have to try to play it co-op - that's the best way to play it.


Devil's Cartel was GWG like a year or two ago.

What is the deal with MS not following calendar months when it comes to letting us get our rewards? I took two vault gem withdrawals for $5 MS credits in February, so that twice per month limit should have reset the first of March right? When I try getting my last 250 gems for another $5, the first for this new month, the site tells me my monthly limit is used. And I have $5 sitting in my rewards account with no option for withdrawing that either, and no option for requesting an early withdrawl...So $10 sitting there unusable.

Forgot I need 4 down the hatch achievement too

If you ever want to go for it, let me know and I'll join you. With four willing people we should be able to get it with a little effort. Plus I'm only like a level 19 still so to my understanding, if we SWF and I cue up the game, we'll play a shittier killer, haha.

 

Marvel ultimate alliance for $24?hard maybe, what you guys think?

They've been smart about this, as $24 seems like a steal after the other "sales" and the super-high MSRP. But that's still a definite no for me. I can't see paying over $7-ish per game considering they didn't improve anything and the games, though fun, are old as shit.

 

For those that gave up on Friday the 13th, you should try the single player with bots and do the cabin stuff. Had a lot of fun with that, and challenge mode is coming up too.

I love that they added the bots. You can even get some of the Jason achievements using them, which is nice. That said, I wish they'd find a way to let you play counselor as a bot. I like playing counselor now and then but I don't want to have to strategize with randoms and deal with the crappy matchmaking to do it.

They were both GwG a couple years ago so you might have them

At that time I didn't have a Gold sub, I do remember them being GwG though. I think by the time they were my sub had already expired.


I'm just trying to keep it together over here...

I found the King's Quest game quite heart-warming if anyone's looking at that one.  It's mostly a puzzle adventure game, but the underlying themes of family and aging are well done.

Thanks for this, wasn't on my radar previously but your mini-review has me leaning towards picking this up.

 

My favorite 100% achievement score where I merely turned on No DQ and headbutted and bashed everyone's balls to become the best boxer ever!

 

Haha, I remember 1k'ing it that way too, those were the days!

 

Lara Croft And The Guardian Of Light worth $2.24 if I'm playing single player?

 

Overall I kinda found the game to be meh. There's not much in the way of story (which is fine) and the gameplay was just a bit tedious and underwhelming. I never felt like "wow, I'm loving this game" at any point. At that price it's probably still worth it for a few hours of entertainment but don't expect some award winner. FWIW, I won't be picking up the sequel. 

 

PS: I played it solo as well, and it may be an entirely more entertaining experience co-op.

I was going to buy Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition, but I already own it. It must have been GwG. I should play that one again, I remember having fun with it on 360.

On xbox rewards

 

the $25 Visa Prepaid Reward Cards are back in stock for 1000 Gems

 

You can either have a virtual card or have them mail you a physical card.

 

I chose virtual and then used it on amazon to reload my gift card balance.

 

So if you really wanted to you could use it to  get $25 in xbox credit on amazon. You will make a extra $5 vs buying two 500 Gem $10 xbox credits on xbox rewards.

Sorry to butt in your conversation but I'm down to swf for the hatch achievement as well if you need anyone else.

Hoping the crysis games being on sale is a hint they'll be BC soon. Own all 3.

Went to delete some recent BC titles and decided to check what I have:
I have about 127 titles that could go BC
45 games have "remastered" versions on X1
24 are games that already have BC titles in the series.

Had credit expiring & I already owned most of the stuff on sale. I looked at the deals last minute, while still 1 hour was left on last weeks & bought the battlefield 1 premium pass even though i never play mp. Sucks when they have 2+ weeks in a row where you don't like anything available that you don't have already. I was hoping for Edith Finch, AC Origins or Southpark. I put off getting those because I didn't have enough, then the MS rewards had the 5$ for 3500 points so i got a little more credit. Since I had $10 expiring on the 8th, I'll be short again if Southpark or AC Origins come up next week. Sucks.

Sleeping Dogs: DE was a GwG a while back. I played it through twice as well (back on 360 when the vanilla version was a GwG there), and enjoyed the heck out of it. And I’m not usually one for GTA style games (or GTA games for that matter), but this one was a blast. Tried the DLC briefly but didn’t get too far. One of them is a zombie fest which is kinda cool.

Rakuten has a promo code for $15 off $100 Xbox gift cards, SAVE15.

Beats Neweggs usual 10% sales, but not as good as cdkeys or nokeys sales if you trust them. I just picked up $150 from nokeys at 17% off. Combined with the $160 f2p rewards and the $200 I already had picked up 20% off, I was able to order an X1X to be delivered Friday. Not a terrible deal, buy I had wanted to hold out for a better sale on the console (it did include an extra controller I don't need).

Unfortunately, I had left my car parked overnight in an ungated lot with no cameras in Vancouver, BC. Some degenerate broke my rear window, stole my Xbox and 2 Easter baskets I was bringing to friends. I was pretty pissed til I thought about a bum scoring baskets full of snacks, fine chocolate, homemade soaps and lotions, a bottle of vodka, a little stuffed duckie, and an Xbox to pawn for meth money. I bet that guy washed his D for the first time in a year and then went to town "moisturizing." You have to admit, that's about the best score he's likely to ever have. I hope he was crazy enough to make a new friend out of that duckie. "You understand me, duck. You're not like the others."

That's rough. Sorry your stuff got stolen, but you've got a great attitude about it. Hope everything works out. For you. And the homeless meth addict ... and his new duck friend.

******* side question for anybody *******

Does delisted mean you can no longer purchase it or you can no longer download it?

For example, if I purchased Forza Horizon 1 and downloaded it before it was delisted. If I deleted it from my hard drive, can I still redownload it?

It means you can no longer purchase it digitally from the marketplace. If you already bought it, then you can re-download it whenever you want and as times as you want.

Thank you, I was worried I would have to never delete the games for space. In reality I should just get an external HD.

I really like that Square Enix actually lowered prices on many of the games in this sale. Most publishers seem to just recycle the same prices over and over. I'm actually thinking of getting Just Cause 3 XL and Deus Ex Deluxe since they dropped below $12 each.

I want to pick up Crysis 1 since it's the only game in the series I don't own but I don't have Gold. What's the cheapest deal for a membership right now? I never play multiplayer so really I'd be paying for the discount on Crysis lol.
