20 years ago, I got about a dozen hours into the game.  Will I get farther this time around?  Which one of you will get that chance?  Like this post to enter a drawing for a Final Fantasy VII code.  Winner will be drawn Thursday evening.


This will be a nice addition to my backlog .

I played over 100 hours, if I remember correctly the timer stopped at 99:59


That’s when the timer stopped for me. I made a seperate file at 90 hours since I was worried that game would just be done when timer was out

When FF7 first released, I played the crap out of it, made it all the way to the end where you fight the last guy, but I was underpowered and my only save was at the point of no return - I couldn't find any way to go back and level up. Never did get to completely finish it, and I haven't returned to it since. Achievements will at least get me to make another attempt.

This is my story on almost every early final fantasy game.

FF7 doesn't run very smoothly. It's very choppy-looking, a rushed port most likely.

 

However, it is FF7 on an Xbox platform, it's playable, and the music gives me nostalgia-goosebumps more than any other game on the planet. Worth every penny and more.

It wouldn't be a rushed port as much as Square just didn't care.

Technomancer and Outcast look at least I'll turn it on and give it a look, but doubt I was ever going to buy them

I 100%ed that game. All weapons, all items, all characters maxed, all materias, all weapons, over 300 hrs logged. It took me several hours to beat ruby weapon using the knights materia, mimic and instant phoenix down My cousin beat it in a few minutes using Cait Sith's random instant kill limit break.


You know how at the beginning of the battle he would knock out 2 of your chars and be left alone.Sometimes he would just knock out 1 but you'd have to be lucky then you could goto town with mimic,knights of round and mega elixir and repeat.Those were some good times indeed.

Technomancer is one of the worst games I’ve ever played . Nothing about it is good and shouldn’t be played by anyone unless they are in hell being punished .

Always considered GRAW 2 but wouldn't want to pay more than $5. BC ubisoft games tend to only drop to $8 on sale. Heard good things about battlefront and nothing about the X1 games but it's always a decent month when I don't own any the games.

I don't have any of these and would probably not have bought any of them so to get them free sounds good to me! Thanks for posting it.

Not too bad. I stupidly bought The Technomancer at some point and it isn’t very good. But don’t have Outcast and owned the other two at one point or another but don’t have them now. Looking forward to checking out GRAW 2 again. Great game if it still holds up well.

I forgot to redeem the code for Outcast last year when Humble Bundle offered the game for free, so I'm glad to get a second chance to play it.

This is probably old news but it looks like the TCL P605 got updated to support Dolby Vision on Xbox.

My biggest gripe about Technomancer is that "price" listed. Doesn't it routinely go on sale every other week or so for about $10?

Liking the BC games lately tho. Games I missed but were interested in have been popping up a lot

I have been unable to "buy" PvZ GW2 with Gold because I already have it via EA Access.  Anyone know a work-around for that?

 

Sorry if this was already asked & answered - it's a long thread.

Meh. Already have GRAW 2 and the Xbone games seem unremarkable. Battlefront 2 is a nice touch though.

If I "saved" as much as Microsoft and Sony say their "free" games are "worth," I would be a "millionaire."

Regarding FF7 was anyone able to defeat Ruby and Emerald weapon? Thanks for the giveaway Bloomy hope I finally win something .

My friend had the game and he came over to spend the night and he brought it with him to show me some stuff.  he had a save file with some underpowered characters and I thought it would be fun to beat Ruby with underpowered characters.  I purchased all the reviving meds I could and went after him while my friend protested this was dumb and a waste of time.

Cue X hours later, Ruby runs out of MP.  It was weird seeing the error message for a boss but after that, I finally won.  
He was shocked and I was stunned that the game would let a major boss run out of MP.

Now, imagine a world where you can record a video of this and share it online for the whole world to see.  You NOW live in this world.

I recall playing the original GRAW back in the early 360 days. It was a decent Ghost Recon game IMO, gameplay-wise. But boy, odd numbered achievements and one specifically which required you to be the No. 1 player in the world across several leaderboards just put me off. Main reason why I skipped over the sequel a decade ago(plus 2007 was one of the greatest gaming years; Bioshock, Team Fortress 2, Portal, Assassin's Creed, Crackdown, Mass Effect, Rock Band and Halo 3).

I'll gladly give GRAW 2 a spin this time around. I'm over the achievement ocd and don't need to 100% a game I play. Though I do have to have my gamerscore ending in 0 or 5. Star Wars Battlefront 2 is a good get too. More og Xbox games please!!!

I just want MS to approve an achievement that ends in .9 just to watch the OCD freak out. (And never allow another, or a .01 to round it up)
