I have been playing ReCore for awhile on my Game Pass and while overall I am enjoying the game there are some things that just make me scratch my head.  I am now at the "end" of the game which in my opinion is so poorly designed.  I feel like the way they set it up almost dares the player to just quit and not continue with the game. It is like the oxygen was sucked out of the room and now I feel obligated  to see this thing to the end. Otherwise the platforming is good and the combat is alright. 6.5/10

You are not alone. I bitched and moaned about that before they patched it, only to return to it post patch and the ending areas still suck ass. I quit the game and never looked back. Real shame because I enjoyed the game till the last area. Sucking the oxygen out of the room indeed.

 

If you look at the achievements unlocked you can tell a lot of people said "Fuck this." when they neared the end of the game. Very, very few people beat it.


... go to sleep.

I just got the glider corebot and am headed to that tower, no idea how far into the main story it is. I'm enjoying the semi-open world and optional dungeons. I used to get tired of collect-a-thons but achievements attached to them have me searching for health upgrades and other things.

 

When it's good, it's really good, and when something doesn't work, the whole experience suffers. I've encountered more than a few optional fights that glitch at the end and I can't proceed. I hate that Seth only attaches to the crawler tracks if the camera is looking right at it even if you're otherwise in range for him to attach. Drives me insane. During some hectic fights, sometimes the camera shits itself and I get killed because I can't see what's happening.

 

Despite these gripes, it's very good. What I'd really love to see is Comcept modify the ReCore engine and use it to make Mega Man Legends 3...

 

I got a $5 code as well, and I swear the fine print said the consolation prizes had a $10 value...

I got a Game Pass reward for another month of Live. I'd rather have $5 but two free months now for just playing games is alright.

I  beat ReCore and don't remember the ending being THAT bad, I know you had to have a specific amount of stuff to continue which did suck but I guess I also try to collect everything I can at times which probably made it so I didn't have to go back much/at all, where people who don't collect as much would have to quite a bit I suppose.

just read about the false missile alert that went out to everyone in Hawaii, that's crazy. Don't even know what i'd do if I received this message like they did.

 

Xbox Live is having some issues so if you're having problems, that's why.

Yeah and with a two-step process too.

 

 

 

Rather than triggering a test of the system, it went into actual event mode. He confirmed that to trigger the alert, there is a two-step process involving only one employee — who both triggers the alarm, then also confirms it. 

 

 

"There is a screen that says, 'Are you sure you want to do this?'" Miyagi said. The employee confirmed the alert, inadvertently causing a panic in a state already on edge over saber-rattling missile threats from North Korea.

Yes,someone had noted this about a week ago that they took down the 12 month redemption and replaced it with 3 months.

The Canadian version also had the 12 month Game Pass removed as well as the Microsoft Gift Cards. 

I hope they put it back, nearly have enough points for it.

 

Sucks with the Australian version it is so limited. We can get points for searches (less than America does) and get points for preordering and buying games.

We never get the deals like play select games and get points. Don't know why it is so limited, even New Zealand is getting better then us.

Don't worry, if short round ever shoots a missile at you it'll end up hitting Venezuela with their accuracy.

 

Speaking of nuking, did the Forza Hub rewards values get nuked?

Nearly broke my X1X just now. Picked up a used copy of The Witcher III (vanilla) for $2.39 at Gamestop after a $10 cert. I am pretty sure it was a new copy that was just clearanced out. It has the slip cover, map, stickers, manual and compendium. It is in pristine condition. I was not aware there are two disks. One for the game and another for the soundtrack. I took the "disk" out and inserted it into the system to the sound of a groan and it slowly drawing the disk inside.  I panicked and pressed eject. It slowly groaned the disk out and to my surprise it was both of them.  It seems to be loading fine right now at least.

ha, I did the same a long time ago on ps1. I put in Lunar 2 and damn near had a heart attack when Smackdown 2: Know you Role's loading screens popped up.

Stop wasting your money on videogames and sign up at prizerebel! Just do some simple and short surveys and in a couple of weeks time, you'll have enough credit to buy a $60 release! Or PSN/Xbox credit. Why pay money to fund your hoarding addiction when you can do it for freeeee!!!

Can't finish Deadlight. The 1st chapter was fun but man, waaay too much trial and error after. Frustrating controls just make it a drag. I can't remember the last game I got so frustrated on I literally said, "screw this, I have hundreds of others games in my backlog to play."

Figure I'll try Sam & Max: Save the World since I have a week left of game pass. I like Telltale games so hopefully its more like TWAU/TWD than Jurassic Park *fingers crossed*

Also, just got a free month of XBL Gold via completing a game pass requirement. Where do I view the monthly page to see how I meet these/what the requirement is?

Read the last several pages of the thread to catch up and the TCL P605 talk led me to read some reviews and my 4K TV timeline has just moved way, way closer than expected, which means my Xbox One X timeline has as well. :D/  Getting both for <$1,000 would be great.
 

I can't remember the last game I got so frustrated on I literally said, "screw this, I have hundreds of others games in my backlog to play."

I love that feeling, haha. It's liberating to be like, "Nope, this game sucks and I'm not going to make myself suffer through it when I have other shit to play." I have a particularly quick hook with GWG games and other free (or super cheap) stuff. Life's too short and the backlog's too large.

Thanks for all the achievement leaderboard feedback! After reading some of them, it made me question whether or not I got achievement points for bc games to show up on the leaderboard. I cannot confirm it, as I think I just assumed it worked since it was in the Xbox one ecosystem.

Yeah, hope it didn’t sound like I trying to be a smart ass about it. Just that there were a bunch of threads even asking if people had gotten theirs. They were closed. It was overkill.
