Think I’ll jump on Moonlighter. Most of what I’ve heard portends a nice relaxing loop.

I've been waiting for witcher 3 complete to drop below $20. My first reaction seeing it at $15 was 'awesome!', the next thought, it's low enough now to be GwG.

Why do I do this to myself?

I'm grabbing Neurovoider tonight before it goes off sale.  Then, I'm getting Heart & Slash (and possibly Vostok Inc) by this time next week.

 

Why are the prices for the indie games going up when the AAA game prices seem to be going down?

Economy of Scale... sort of :) there is no physical good though, but for EA or Ubisoft they sell millions of copies so even at $10 they make a lot of money vs an indie selling thousands of copies for $15

Also, IMHO, if you are filling up 8TB worth of xbox games then you got a hoarder problem.

There really is no point in DLing all that stuff since you won't play 90% of it in the next year.

I think it would be a much better quality of life move to get a 1TB SSD for $120 to $150 (or even a 500GB SSD for $75) and just keep the games you really play all the time on it + swap out single play through games as you go.

 

For the record, I have 2 different 2TB mechanical drive externals with around 830GB free currently (so  4.1TB out of 5TB available including the X1X system HDD used up) so if anything I am talking to myself here more then others.  If I don't do the swap to a single 1 TB SSD this year I am certainly going to do so for next gen.

It must be nice not to have bandwidth caps.

Is the deal for Halo: The Master Chief Collection for $22.50 a good deal to jump on? I haven't played any of them yet however I have a good size backlog so it's going to be a while before I get to it. 

FWIW, I picked it up for $5.19 from cdkeys.com awhile back.

Great price on the NBA bundle. Unfortunately I already have 2K19. Anyone have an opinion on Playgrounds 2? Decent for single player or just typical 2K cash grab with everything behind a VC pay wall?

I've spent a short amount of time playing Playgrounds 2 on PS4 (got the bundle as a gift). So far I'm liking it more than the original when I played it via Game Pass. It's good for single player or couch co-op with family and friends. They don't force the VC purchases in it like they do in 2K. Paying for VC is optional because everything can be unlocked just by playing solo and online (if that's your thing).

I think the lesson to be learned by not just EA but every single publisher out there is to now pull back info about your game as much as you can. This game should have been buried by every metric if the internet pitch fork crew got the news of it 6 months before release. Loot Boxes, EA, No wall running, no Titans, not Titanfall 3. After watching what happened to Anthem and Fallout 76 with this much time between release for a narrative to be built around the game, whether legit or not in Fallout 76's case. I can see pre release info on games being totally pulled back now for awhile. 

The problem with this strategy is that it is all or nothing. I know plenty of people are getting pissed about Bioware still not talking about the cost of things in its store. No marketing strategy also is not a viable option for most games. It worked for Apex because the game is free and feels like an actually finished product from a well liked developer.

Crap. I forgot that Salt and Sanctuary came out on the X. Now I’m torn between that and Vampr. I’d actually be double dipping on S&S since I have it on PS4. But it’s soooo good. But maybe I’ll wait for a sale on it.

You're trying to use logic, other developers are going to look at results and think well that game didn't get shit all over for 6 months before release...

 

Of course I don't think it's for every single game, but for sure if they could take it back that's the way Fallout 76 would have went now. Same probably with anthem.

Is it me or is this anime sale lacking? Last year it seemed Microsoft had a huge selection of shows and movies on sale, so much so I spent alot picking up complete series of my fav shows. This year it's a few shows and the newer seasons I wanted to pick up are not on sale. Are they holding out till the end of the month?

My experience with Apex Legends so far is that it is absolutely miserable with random people on your squad.

Usually, but I did manage to win one game with randoms. Several top three spots too. It mostly comes down to people using the ping system successfully or just running away from the team and dying.

I am looking at the 20th anniversary nba2k19.  is it worth it for the price, since it's reduced pretty much

Yeah, it is but it’s very well done. And like the graphical style and level design.

Please let us (me) know your thoughts on the game. From what I've heard of the description, it reminds me of the Taloon chapter of DW4.

I have really enjoyed it for about 70 percent of the game (I'm probably a couple hours from finishing about 10-12 hours into a playthrough), but the loop a) does get you to be a bit overpowered unless you are actively trying not to make yourself a killing machine and b) isn't very deep in either its dungeoning or its store sim elements.

 

I would also not look up any guides. A fair bit of the fun is figuring things out as you go, and one tip I couldn't unlearn trivializes something pretty significant.

 

Worth it for $15 or less ($8-12 seems like a good range; I paid $14), IMO.

Got a couple wins with some randoms tonight.  Lot of Rambos though, which is to be expected with such a large player base.

 

Disappointed to read that you stop getting a loot box each level (changes to every other level and then every 5 levels or something like that).

I don't think playing with randoms is too bad in Apex with how good the ping system is. I'd say throw on your own mic and you'll usually get more communication, even if it's just more active use of the pings. But yeah, you're handicapping yourself to some degree if you aren't playing with a squad that can fully communicate.

 

For now I'm just saving all currency until the March when Season 1 starts. In that 25,000,000 post they also said that new characters would be coming during the first season, and I really want to see how their BP works and affects the overall economy of the game. In the mean time there is supposed to be some Valentine's cosmetics coming soon, though I'd guess only in the paid store.

 

On that note, I think the big Valentine's blowout for Fortnite will be starting tomorrow when the update drops.

 

-Free Wrap for entering a creator code into the store

-Double XP for the next two weekends

-Free challenges for everyone giving a Wrap and Contrail

-Challenges for BattlePass owners that give 3 new designs for BP skins

-a new type of competive mode

-new featured creations in Creative every day (basically minigames or small versus maps)

-Pretty decent looking new paid skins

-general gameplay changes including a new rifle, nerfs to the Planes/Hand Cannons/Rockets, and buffs for Zip Lines.
