I just got a $10 code sent to me via Xbox Live for being a great Xbox fan!!
And in celebration of whatever sale they are running now.


So did i. Quite stunned when I redeemed the code.

I’m probably the only one here who took at day off for Civ IV on the PC back in the day. Only game I’ve ever done that for.

I took many days off back in the day to play games Day One. Notably Mass Effect 1 & 2, Rock Band 3, all the Gears games(same as Bloomy) and Halo 3. I remember skipping college classes to play Halo: Combat Evolved back in 02. Halo 2 was the last game I waited in line for, to get at midnight.

Who else other then myself still have Borderlands in the backlog?

Borderlands 1 and 2 + all the dlc. Played 10 mins of the first and unlocked the goomba achievement. Been in the backlog ever since.

Thanks to whoever said Just Cause 1 on 360 was 99 cents. Too cheap to pass up. Being backwards compatible makes it even more a sell. Falls into the sweet spot that any og Xbox game hits when its only a few dollars. Perfect impulse buy for the digital collection/backlog

Re: taking days off
I took a whole week off for Fallout 4.
The day it was supposed to arrive, I had a recruiter call me for an interview.
I really wanted to play the game but took the interview.
Long story short--the whole week was one long interview process, but, the job turned out to be a good move.
Still havent played FO4 for more than a few hours.

That's a great story:

 * you having lots of time to go through the interview process because you already had scheduled time off

 * the happy ending of landing a job you like more in retrospect.

 * the humor in knowing Fallout 4 is not really a role-playing game and is somewhat of a disappointment with series fans anyway.  Really, not much lost in your decision.

What they need to do... take a shot at Blizzard.

Announce Borderlands mobile. Show a short clip of it on a phone, and then have the phone be ran over by a claptrap. Then announce BL3.


Man, that would be a really COLD move.

PSA for anyone that purchased the Gamestop 360 last fall and got the $70 Visa gift card:

Per the back of the card. The card incurs a $3 monthly fee which is waived for the first 6 months.

I had planned to hold on to it, but see now that would be a bad idea.

Watched the first vid... wasn't that bad.

2nd vid... oh crap!

 

I personally want the game *on* a console/PC not streamed, too many factors involved to make a bad experience.

Received a message on the Xbox saying I earned Microsoft Rewards points via Xbox Game Pass quests. Select (launch app) to redeem your points and find this months quests.
I click through and I get no points, and there are no Game Pass quests listed. Anybody know what is going on?

Has anyone ever used a sick/vacay day to stay home from work just to play a game? If so what game was it?

I did that back in the day for one of the Halo games, might have been Halo 3.

 

“If one of the announced games isn't Borderlands 3 people are going to be pissed.”
Would *not* want to be in the room if there is no BL3...

Don't you guys have phones?

Yeah, holding onto those is a bad idea.  I always instantly convert them into Amazon credit.

Each time? That's two weeks of PTO right there.

Any thoughts on the Shadow of the Tomb Raider Season Pass? I am more inclined to buy since I have the base game on Game Pass but $20 still seems steep. I am liking the main game though.

I played the panther piss out of the :360: games (minus TPS) and I bought the Gentleman ClapTrap version for :xb1:.  My remote control ClapTrap has an inner ear problem and that game is still sealed.

I got the same. I was also thinking this might be the 500 pts for completing all the GP Quests since it didn't credit me right away.

I got it too, but I haven't done a single one of them.  Keep forgetting.

I got one but it was the tiered bonus points for making purchases promo they ran a week or so back. Oddly, clicking the box on the Xbox didn't seem to work last night but I believe I claimed them on the website a little bit ago.

I took a day off work for KH3 most recently but ended up sick for 3 days instead and didn't play it at all :-/

Obviously Gearbox is only making you think they're revealing Borderlands 3 to throw you off the scent of the real news: Duke Nukem 5ever... or Battleborn 2... or Aliens: Colonial Marines 2? You know, all their other fan-favorites.

 

Disclaimer: I enjoyed Battleborn but releasing within a week of Overwatch was a major mistake and it never found a sustainable audience.

I have not seen anything on the site.
It is weird the message says game pass quests as I have not seen them on the app on Xbox for a few months.

I guess it's time to finally play the first game, I hear the story itself is top-tier even if the game is flawed. I would say I'd like a port of 1 to consoles but looking at the reviews it's heavily suggested to play with a fan made mod that fixes a lot of issues and adds cut content.

Honestly I would like to see a new Duke. They've owned the rights for 9 years now and all we've gotten since Forever is a port of Duke 3D with some new levels and a paid DLC to an extremely overpriced port of Bulletstorm. I don't know if Gearbox could still make a good straight-forward FPS, but it's not like it would have the extreme baggage that Forever brought with it from 3D Realms. It's insane to me that Shadow Warrior is two games deep in a successful reboot before anything substantial could be done with Duke. At least Ion Maiden looks good I guess.

Sekiro is pretty freaking cool and just as hard as a Souls game. Some nice mechanics and do like the faster paced combat, through it just means I die quicker, lol.
