That's awesome! My buddy in another state says he wants me to play it with him, but I just haven't had fun w those type of games since I quit WoW 12 years ago. I didn't like Destiny either, but I get the appeal for others.

I just wanted to let people know that there is fun to be had in the game since I am seeing a lot of people not liking it, not for everyone for sure, but I'll continue to play it :D

I sold my physical copy a month or so ago. I played them solo and can only grind non raid stuff for so long by myself. I also knew better than to buy any DLC after spending like $120+ on the first game that eventually dropped to $30 with all that content. It may have been because I spent so much on it, but I played the first one a lot more than the second. The only thing that kept me going back to the second one was Iron Banner for the cool armor.

Actually Destiny The Collection is still $60 on the marketplace. It was only on sale for $30 once. I know because I've been watching for a sale since I got my X.

Pretty suspiscious that there are some SUPER glowing reviews of Sea of Thieves on Amazon the day it came out and someone from Microsoft has commented directly on most of them....

I am enjoying Sea of Thieves. To me Sea of Thieves seems to hit the right spot of not being too complicated and still being fun. What I mean is SoT is a game where a year from now I can just jump back in without having to relearn everything about the game which will happen. I expect this game to be something like Minecraft that keeps on getting updates.

 

I expected this to not be deep as a game, but instead have those that was awesome moments.

It wasn't up very long.  The main stream was running for about a half hour or so, a bit after 8pm Eastern until around 8:40 or so.  During that time, the Quests tab was there.  They were broadcasting streamers before the main stream (horrible lag) and again beginning at 9pm Eastern, but the Quests tab wasn't available for those.

Yup, caught them during the streamers.  Just thought it was odd that the quest tab was missing rather than always present with a message that the quest was over.

 

Speaking of Gears, I'm gonna miss Luck of the Draw.  I got the play 2 and 15 kills objectives done quickly, but kept ending up on the losing team and only got two wins the night I was able to play.  Saw it was still up Monday night and played it some more hoping that they had extended the timing since reaching objectives usually ends with the event.  In eight games I got my five wins and six MVPs with one 2nd place.  I'm not that guy.  I generally am a top three scorer and nab an mvp every so often and sometimes go on runs, but not like that.

It's only hit $30 once? I feel like I've seen it there a few times. Even at the full $60, I'd much rather pay that than the more than double that price that I paid to play it earlier. I'd probably feel a lot less CAG guilt paying the full price if I had actually played it with at least one other person regularly rather than solo or matchmaking for everything.

The great thing about Sea of Thieves is they will constantly be adding new stuff to it.

The other thing is it's on Gamepass so I didn't blow $60 on it.

Was fun the brief time I spent with it (outside of not being able to log in) but once I read It's basically non-stop skeleton hunting and/or treasure hunting and/or cargo deliveries for leveling and cosmetics I decided to stop playing it.

Hopefully they add Sea of Thieves BATTLESHIP! or drinking contests or some crazy stuff to get me interested in it again.

 

I will say the sailing felt great! The water is gorgeous and you feel like a pirate. But it plays like a early access game, content wise.


... go to sleep.

Playing crackdown 1 on BC, took me a while to get going but it's a fun title, went 9 years between achievements in this game, longest time difference for me

I cleared out the first island and started on the second about 2 weeks ago and really just can't get into it.  I tried Crackdown 2 in the past and didn't get even this far along.  I just hate the platforming, map/gps and check point system.  Trying to find my way back to where I died is such a PIA,.  Trying to figure out how to get to the top of most supply depots so I can unlock a respawn place close to where I want to be is annoying.

 

I really like open world games but guess this one isn't for me.  

 

As others have said glad there are tons of different styles of games.  Something for everyone.

Curious, but does anyone still play Destiny 2? I Totally forgot about that game until today and never hear any news of it and for a game that is trying to become one of those long term games through updates and events, it sure seems to have fallen off the radar especially after so many people bought it.

I played it for 2 or 3 months pretty much daily on PS4.  Got bored with it like I did with the first Destiny.  Probably pick it back up at some point.  Maybe when the next expansion comes out.  It is a great social game IMO but if your friends are playing other stuff it is a bit boring by yourself.  The 3 or 4 guys I was playing with all started playing other stuff more.  Sounds like maybe Sea of Thieves is similar?

Some photos of SoT taken on Windows 10, even my PC is shit for games:

Saw a post from someone who supposedly worked on SoT earlier. They said they were surprised that the game released at $60 as the original plan was for it to be $20 with microtransactions at launch. He didn't have any proof though so take it with a grain of salt.

 

With how light SoT is on content, and State of Decay 2 actually being a $30 release, it now seems odd that these are two of the three games they're putting all the marketing into. The state of exclusives is just about as dire as it has been for the past year.

Not sure what's so odd about it, they're 2 of the 4 games that we know Xbox had for awhile now. Only other 2 I know of is the Ori sequel and Crackdown 3. Sounds like there are a couple "console first launches" coming out of the Game Developers Conference this week and the long in gestation game "Below" is there and after delay after delay they said they weren't bringing it out again until it's close to release.  

 

I think the more disappointing thing with the state of the Xbox is when they miss out on so many 3rd party exclusives more so than 1st party. Last year was pretty bad in particular would love to play Nier, Nioh, or some Yakuza.

I drank grog on sot. Then our captain went full on sailing and the waves were rough. My guy got sick and was throwing up every where. It was leaving a green slime splatter everywhere and my screen kept spinning. I then decided it was my goal in life to try to paint as much as our ship green with my puke.

Then our boat sank since I was in charge of patching holes and bailing water. I was to busy trying to get as much throw up on the ship that I could.

Probably shouldnt have drank the grog...



Yo ho yo ho a pirates life for me. My pirate looks like a fat hulk hogan. He even comes with the yellow hulk mustache

Anyone else redeem gems for a Microsoft giftcard and not get the points added to your account? I redeemed for it a little over a week ago.

Yeah MS seeds to skip whenever they have an actual game out the rarity that is. Hoping for the rest of the Metal Gear Solid stuff somewhat soon.

Hardly surprising. Every single time MS announces or launches soothing, BC takes a back seat.

 

Back in June of last year we went 3 weeks in a row without BC because Beam turned into Mixer, then it was E3 and then the week after E3. And it will happen again on the week of May 21-25 with State of Decay 2.

haven't had trouble with it so far. they didn't go into the total to be deposited or they weren't deposited into your xbox account so you can spend them? If its they weren't deposited so you can spend them, they only do deposits on the 15th and 30th of each month

I wasn't sure if the gems rewards were a separate thing then the normal Xbox rewards. Guess I'll see at the end of the month.
