Almost missed work as I played MK11 until very late, or should I say very early.

 

Anyways, I'm currently on chapter 5 of the story mode (needed to make it at least to chapter 4 in order to unlock Frost). And wow, transitions from cutscene to fight and back to cutscene are smooth AF. Facial animations are top notch and the voice acting - except for Ronda Rousey - is superb.

 

Haven't gone online just yet nor done any of the klassic arcade towers. And yes, I'm avoiding the Towers of Time until the difficulty and rewards re-balance hotfix is deployed (which according to Ed Boon, should happen today). 

 

The Krypt looks great and even got a skin for Jax for opening one of the smaller chests. But it seems is better to leave it for later once NRS does their thing server-side with the amount of koins you get in-game. Though it does have an MK Deception feel to it and prefer the third-person view.

$10, May 7, will buy immediately.

For those who don't know, Puyo Puyo is the same basic game as Kirby's Avalance and Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, which is the only ports we received in the 90s. In Japan, Puyo Puyo has been on almost every system ever made. Looks like they just took the existing portions of PP from Puyo Puyo Tetris to make a standalone traditional game, which I'm mostly okay with, but still mad we never got it localized since PPT was (physically! )published on Xbox in Japan.


Same, I love this game and an equally mad the previous didn't come over. $10 is a day 1 price for me.

Red Faction 2 is showing up at $2.24.

This game has better destructible environment multiplayer than Crackdown 3. It's local only, but still more fun. I would blast my way up above the map and rocket friends below. Great times.

I last played Toy Story Mania over 6 years ago, and recall it being decent mindless fun. The gameplay videos are pretty much exactly what you get, a shooting gallery. Would likely keep a 3 year old entertained.

 

Disc copies are not that common  and stiill go for around $20-ish online, and this might be one of the few times it's ever been on sale. I've hesitated buying 360 Disney games digitally since they've given several as GwG so  far, but you're risking getting it free later vs permanent delisting.

That's pretty much how I feel. I'm worried it's going to be delisted, don't ever remember it being on sale. Just wish it was backwards compatible.

Maximilian Dood and his friends had a massive 9 hour MK11 stream overnight. I didn't watch it live but skipped around the video some. He said he's going to edit down their Krypt experience so far into a Youtube video but basically the guys that were probably the most hyped for the game were pretty disheartened by how much currency everything takes and that the boxes seem to be totally random. One box they opened took 100 hearts, and you get 1 heart per Fatality.

 

I didn't see if they commented on this, but apparently you can't have even your custom outfits in ranked mode.

Max said don't buy the game if you want single player content.  Glad that people with some clout are calling WB out on their bullshit for turning single player content into GAAS microtransaction crap.  Stuff like that gets the 'hotfixes' rolled out faster.

I bought Road Redemption during the Spring Sale. Refunded it shortly afterwards. Just did not like it at all, felt too much like a budget title.

Thanks for your input.  Were you a fan of Road Rash back in the day?  And were you expecting it to be a budget title and it was still too rough around the edges?

 

That’s because it is a budget title.

I have fun with it. Best Road Rash fix you’re going to get.

Certainly not going to call it a masterpiece. It’s rough around the edges and primarily good in small doses. But it’s pretty fun if you miss those type of games.

Check out some reviews on Steam where it has “very positive” reviews.

Thanks!  My main concern was that it seemed to get really good reviews on Steam, but  not so on consoles so I was wondering if the port sucked or if it's just the console reviewers expected more polish.  Really need a Road Rash fix.

Port seems fine to me. Like I said it isn’t going to win any awards but for a Road Rash fix, it’s the best you’ll get right now. I’ve heard Road Rage is downright awful.

I do wish it had more story and polish to it. Mostly just some text and bare bones voiceovers. I would not buy it if you are expecting a full fledged story-based campaign.

But the gameplay is fun, especially for a quick fix. Probably would get duller if you played for three hours straight. But to fire up now and then for some senseless violence on motorcycles? It does the trick. :)

Now we know how Epic keeps that insane Fortnite update schedule is maintained. I can't say I'm surprised but it is disappointing they haven't figured out something better after over a year with all that money. It seems like hiring more people would be the solution, even if it costs more better quality work should equate to more sales I would think.

I havent seen it at all, since I was away for the week when this rolled out; it was quietly taken down at some point.

I read via Xbox Insiders on Reddit that they reached the max number of participants for this wave, but plan on opening it up again in the near future.

So I was at Target and picked up a PlayStation Classic. It was an impulse buy at $39.99. I look forward to installing the mod stuff on my next day off...whenever that may be...

Shoot, they were just at the point where they start paying people to take the stock off their hands.

"Installing the mod stuff" is half the fun...and then you get bored with it and put it back in the box.  But it's more about the journey than the destination.

Lol you're right. I'll probably put Crash Bandicoot on it and play for 15 minutes then never touch it again.

YMMV. Check your Xbox messages. Xbox just sent me a message with a $5 gift card code.

I didn’t get the $5, and I didn’t even buy anything from the sale, I thought that’s how you get the gift cards, by not buying things?

Spring haul:

COD WW2 (sent in for refund and got money back but game stayed)
Railway Empire
Sleeping Dogs
Tekken 6

Would have kept going but felt DR was a waste so pulled back

I got the $5, and I also got the mixpot items from last week. I literally caught the last 40 seconds of inside Xbox, but it must've been enough.
