Knowing 360 DLC will still work on the next console that'll be around for another 8-10 years makes it way easier to justify IMHO.

 

Speaking of, I'm getting serious Mass Effect vibes from The Outer Worlds. I highly recommend playing it with companions. You can recruit about 5-6 of them early in the game (very similar to the squad selection screen in ME) and they all have unique abilities and stat bonuses when present. They also banter with one another and have unique dialogue for each member of the squad. Plus, unique quests that build relationships. 

 

I never wanted companions in Fallout 3 because the feeling of isolation was part of the vibe in that game, but TOW really feels like a hybrid between both franchises. The smaller, more focused worlds also feel more like Mass Effect since it's not a completely open world.

I haven't made it to the companion section yet (I know it's early in game, but I also went off on tangential side missions RIGHT before Edgewater), but how often are they working on their "calibrations"?

In case this helps anybody: It looks like the PC version of Outer Worlds doesn't count for the Game Pass quest.  It makes some sense, since the console and Windows versions have different achievement lists, but it's still annoying.

Use a Play Anywhere title, such as Recore. That worked for me.

Yeah, Recore on PC worked fine for the Fearless Femmes quest... but Outer Worlds PC didn't count for the Outer Worlds Quest, nor the  Play New Games quest.

Is it too early to start making Black Friday Xbox sales wishlists? I've got a handful of titles that keep churning in my head...

My bad, I was referring to the PC achievement quest, specifically. I played Recore on my X and got that quest cleared.

FF8 and the Contra / Castlevania Collections are top of my list. The latter have been $10 on PSN at least once now, hoping for the deeper discount. I also don't expect any of them to end up on Game Pass or to get physical releases, so Black Friday it is.

Any good console exclusives in there at all? Have a 360 and am picking up a X1S for Black Friday.

Not really, at a glance I think the only exclusives in this sale are a couple Kinect games and the worst DLCs for a few Forza games. Wait for the Black Friday and Christmas sales and there will be a bunch.

 

As far as exclusives go the majority of them are on GamePass if you're thinking about subbing to that.

Im hoping for a deal on Contra this holiday season too.  After listening to the Retronauts podcase on the series I got the itch to go back and play the first one.  Many a Saturday morning was spent with my cousin running thru the NES version of Contra.  Also wanting Control at a deep discount and Luigis Mansion 3, Mario Odyssey, and what ever else I can pick up for my switch.  

 

I have go to my in laws who live in the middle of no where so deal shopping may prove difficult.

Castlevania Lord of Shadows 2, Yaiba, and Ninja Gaiden 2 are on sale for Black Friday

Castlevania Collection would be cool.

I've also got my eyes on:
Stay Cool, Kobayashi-san! A River City Ransom Story
River City Girls
Deponia Collection
The Messenger
Bloodstained

I'll probably add to the list as time goes on.

Put Rondo of Blood in that Castlevania collection and take my money.

Actually, just give me Rondo of Blood.

So apparently will be no EA Access trial for Fallen Order, but NFS Heat is now available for a 10 hour trial.

Soo is anyone going for the Boss Hutn achievements in PvZ GW2? It's been almost a year since the last boss hunt and these are the only 3 (now 2) achievements I still need... None of ou team had a Toxic Brainz though which seems crucial for this boss hunt lol.

The new Pacific maps for Battlefield V are pretty great.  The weather and sound effects create a atmospheric experience that I haven't seen in a shooter in a long time.

Good I won't be tempted then to wait and see if Fallen Order maybe gets a punch card. 10% off with EA Access and another 6000 reward points, finger's crossed. There's pretty much your 20% Donken

I don't know how much more I actually have, but 25hrs in and I got a "are you sure you want to go here because no coming back" dialog box. I really love being able to skill your way through a conversation to avoid a protracted fight. Possibly related to what happened after the dialog box.

Possible Playtonic Games (Yooka-Laylee developers) acquisition incoming. ResetERA sucks but the OP here as some solid reasoning. If it is happening they would definitely be involved in a new Banjo game even if they weren't the lead devs.

Holy moly, haven't heard anyone mention Yaiba in 6 years. I remember buying it used for like $10 years ago...and it's still sitting wrapped in plastic to this day.

I didn't think it was THAT bad, but it is funny that the guy who used to make Mega Man games tried with all his might to make Horizon Zero Dawn, and wound up making 3D Mega Man X instead.

Ha! That is such a perfect way to put it. On a side note, how freaking amazing was Horizon Zero Dawn?

Is there a way to complete the Xbox Rewards weekly quests in the mobile app? I will be absolutely unable to get to an X1 console to complete the apps and would hate for my 20 week streak to go away.

Couldn't find a way to do it on the app.
