Just joined the TCL Fam here. I like the tv a lot except for one thing....

The volume levels are all jacked up across the streaming apps like Netflix, Amazon and Hulu when I use the native apps. One is supper quiet, so I have to turn the volume up, and then get the windows blown out of my living room from the volume when I switch apps. This doesn’t happen with the Xbox. But somehow my wife has convinced herself this is better because we don’t have to turn on the tv AND the Xbox to watch Netflix.

YMMV, but my local Microsoft Store said they will no longer be carrying physical games and are clearancing out their stock.

Some highlights:

Rage 2/Deluxe $15/$20
Kingdom hearts III deluxe $30
Jump force ultimate edition $55
Dead or alive 6 $15

Almost every available screen was little kids playing fortnite; it was madness.

Started Lego City Undercover yesterday to grab the Rewards points. This is the longest in a Lego game it has taken to earn an achievement. I have yet to even start the first level and have been playing for almost an hour.

I'll take it if you don't want it.

Felt the same way. Stopped after I got the achievement.

Apparently I was off on the Gears 5 Tour of Duty (seasonal) unlocks. The two week in-game timer was throwing me off. Apparently that is a bug as this, and all ToD, last 3 months, and it sounds like said unlocks are only available during that ToD much like other games' battlepass systems. I'm pretty sure I was thinking of the upcoming seasons for Master Chief Collection, whose rewards will remain permanently available.

 

Anyways, I guess get to grinding if their are specific items you want. It's pretty lame if the characters/skins in this pass are going to be exclusive, since they're all just different outfits from the Gears 5 story, some of which are the outfits on the damn cover art. Even at three months, some of the challenges are pretty big orders. I think you get three new dailies each day if you can manage to get them all done, maybe those are enough to not worry too much.

What were you expecting? Did you think that Madden 20 was a game about a tough acting anti-fungal spray or something?

I Can't think of any games where for every load time there's more videos of shooting/punching things in the face or whatever or even when you load up a game mode it has an intro of things getting shot/punched or whatever as well. It's like they're afraid for one second if I forget it's a football game I may leave so they have to constantly remind me.

Did not think they could make campaign buddy AI any dumber in Gears, but they did.  At least when it comes to picking you up while DBNO.

What difficulty are you on?  I'm playing Hardcore, and the AI usually takes the time to empty its clip, reload and then maybe make an effort to pick me up.  Even when I'm at their feet.

I really hate Chips-a-hoy, but I'll get them for my SOT and GOW codes and feed them to my child as a reward for doing good things. But these chunky chips-a-hoy I can actually eat. Now I regret the purchase.

Yes but they are willing to price match their website if you go and I noticed some items that don’t show available for store pickup are actually in stock at the store itself.

Just wait till you play insane. I have yet to go DBNO. Constant head exploding or turned into kibbles n bits. The AI seems to be the most worthless in the series.

You generally can't go DBNO soloing Insane.  I didn't think you ever could, but GOW1 Ultimate had an achievement for beating Raam on Insane without going DBNO.  Going DBNO from a single body shot from a sniper on Experienced (Hardcore) made a couple stretches tough.  Hopefully that doesn't happen on Insane, but it wouldn't surprise me.

As soon as I typed it, I questioned myself on if you could go DBNO on insane solo. 4 was the only one I did solo for the achievement but seems forever ago. But starting to remember the grind of getting through like only a chapter each night...

Dont get me wrong, I generally enjoy the Lego games, and applaud this one for hitting an original story. However, the story seems to be slow paced, and it shows where it is a Wii U port (the shape of your communicator that just HAPPENS to look like a Wii U gamepad). Honestly, the humor in this one is nice, and I'll probably go back and co-op it with the wife at some point. Just glad I got the achievement so I can come back to it later

Gears 5 Horde is ridiculously fun. I have yet to not have a match eventually crash/disconnect though.
