Opinions on the best single player stories this past year? (Can include PS4 and Switch.)

Wanna play something new while my wife and family go on their beach trip. I unfortunately have to work and be a bachelor this next week.

I really liked Prey.  Released May last year, so I think it counts as "this past year."  Never played System Shock, but a lot of people have compared it to that.  Since I've not played it, I can't confirm.

 

To me, it felt like Deus Ex meets Bioshock meets Alien Isolation meets Dishonored

 

Deus Ex because you can spec your guy to be good at hacking, or repairing, or fighting, or whatever, to avoid fights or engage in them; your choice.

Bioshock because of the world building and style (since Bioshock is the spritiual successor to System Shock, this must be where the System Shock comparisons come in).

Alien Isolation because you're on a space station all alone and the main enemies are all alien; other similarities that I wont spoil.

And Dishonored because it's made by the same devs.  You can definitely feel it.

 

I played through twice, which is not COMPLETELY uncommon for me, if achievements require it.  But this was one of the few single player games where - after I beat it - I coudn't wait to play through again.

 

The good/bad news is the game did not sell well at all... so you can probably find a copy real cheap.

Laugh deluxe edition, I bought the vanilla release edition from New Egg for $30 2 holidays ago and I still haven't opened it. I still might buy this.

Content-wise, it's a good deal, yeah. Includes all the season pass content, which is still $20 by itself if bought separately, and that doesn't include the "royal edition" content update with the extra dungeon and stuff like that.

My Xbox live expires Dec 2020. If I get another Bing 12 month code I should be able to add it shouldn’t I?


Mine expires 12/30/2020. I got another year with Bing but I was not able to add it to my account. They told me to hang on to the code. I guess I have to wait until December to redeem it.

Skyrim has jack shit for freebies. Only thing I've seen is the damn mudcrab armor. Which might be free again right now, there certainly isn't anything else free right now.

Well, thanks again! I might just stop liking the giveaway posts unless I'm super interested since I've been picked so many times now. I was interested in this one, though. Thanks!

Season 1 of the Cartoon Network show Steven Universe is on sale on Microsoft Movies and TV for $4.99:

Just the right price for me since that was the best season of that show.

It could take up to 30 days. Check your Xbox messages on the console. I got mine just the other day.
It should be soon!

Played some of the Crew 2 beta tonight and am impressed. Nice arcade racer/flyer. Much improved over the first game. Might pick it up.

Yeah I wouldn’t expect it so soon but I seen people getting it back after 2 days, not really a big deal but I don’t like having to contact MS support especially over $5 lol.

Mine was 2 days, but it was a bit before the mad rush I think, of course Elder Scrolls Online went to game pass the next day so maybe they were in a hurry to give me my $5

Anyone ever let their Live subscription lapse?  Mine is up in about two weeks, and right now the only thing keeping me considering renewing is the nice number 10 next to my name.  I don't want the count to start over.  I haven't played online in a very long time.  Like... I played Battlefield 1 once in late 2016.  Would I still be able to use Netflix, Hulu, etc. without Live?  I have enough single player games to last a lifetime.  I feel like I'm throwing money away.

It doesn't start over. It's cumulative. Mine shows 12 and I know for sure I used to let it lapse in the past before Games With Gold started.

 

 

Edit: Microsoft did remove the Live requirement to use stuff like Netflix a while back. I forget exactly when.

I concur with this. I feel the same way. I don't really play multiplayer games and haven't since like 5 years ago. Do I still need live? I do use Hulu, Netflix, and fox sports go for the world cup.

If you're a solitary gamer, and don't console share and don't see yourself participating in any online games then I guess why would you keep Xbox Live at this point? Does Game Pass require a Xbox Live sub? Not an option for me, play way to much online NHL, Fifa, Pubg, and now I have little shite nephews with headsets wanting to do Fortnight.

Your count doesn't reset

 

I've let my Gold lapse several times and I still have the accurate Gold count, it just picks up where you left off

If it wasn't for GWG, I wouldn't feel nearly as compelled to maintain a subscription. I play online with friends probably less than once a month on average, but GWG plus online access for what comes out to ~$3.50 per month when the $40 XBL subs are available is plenty worth it to me.

I buy all the games anyways so usually have what comes on GWG.

90% of the PS plus games seem to end up GwG and vice versa if you look at the lists, that said been a bad/quiet couple months the first Super Mega Baseball was gwg so I don't consider that some stellar coup getting the 2nd one, when I got Rocket League back in the day, and PS+ just got X-com 2 and Call of Duty Black Ops III. Free Smite Junk and whatever Ubisoft deemed ready to let go on there next hasn't been great last few months unless you didn't have the oddball 360 games they tossing out

Other than the Mud Crab Armor nothing is usually free when I check. If you just mean new content being added, it doesn't seem like they've added anything in a while. I don't know if the Fallout stuff has just been selling better or if more was commissioned at a time, but every month or two something new has been added, plus new dogs every week or two for a while there.

I follow one of the modders who has a few packs in Creation Club, both Fallout and Skyrim, most recently that Nuka Cola pack that just came out. I asked her if she was going to have new CC projects in the future, and she said she couldn't comment, rather than just saying yes or no. She was also flown to E3 from Finland by Bethesda. I'm wondering if they're giving some sort of early access to 76 to the past CC contributors so they can have content ready to sell relatively soon after launch.

That's interesting Six they've not been shy about we're going to make some money off this somehow going forward. I think the announcement of the next "big" Elder Scrolls here as a camera flying by a landscape was a buffer for backlash for sure, on any backend criticism. Although why don't they just focus on the tools for modders on the new Elder Scrolls plays on your phone or your console whatever thing? That said yeah no one really knows wtf Fallout 76 is, for the people that heard mmo and hated it they said don't worry you can play it all single player and then said everyone in the world is another player. Maybe they are just a save file uploaded, dunno. Todd Howard and Phil Spencer have a bit of a problem ( I Love them both) about speaking out both sides of their mouths. It was 2 years ago we were getting Fallout VR on the Xbox One X.
