Highly YMMV but if you have a Chase card, check your Chase Offers in the Chase Pay app for the following deal:

Get 30% back at Staples or staples.com, max $19 cash back.

Add the offer to your account and buy xbox gift cards on staples.com with your eligible Chase card. For example, 1 $50 card + 1 $15 card should result in a $19 statement credit within 14 days.

I am surprised to see Dead Rising 3 is leaving GamePass. I would have thought a MS exclusive would stay forever. Now I have to finish the DLCs.

Don’t think anyone mentioned that Salt & Sanctuary is coming to Xbox One next month. Such a great 2D Souls-ish game. May need to double dip!

Picked up FC5 Gold. Going to have about two weeks between work contracts so I’ve been saving up. RDR2, FO76, BFV and add FC5 to the mix will be my conquest.

I'm having a hard time pulling the trigger on FC5 Gold. I know it's a ton of content for the money, but I hardly played 3 when it came out and I have 4 on PS4 that I've barely touched either. It sounds like it's just more of the same so I can't see being all that impressed if the others didn't hold my attention.

Of course as a CAG with a backlog in the hundreds, does anything hold my attention anymore? #caglife

If you aren't all that in to the Far Cry formula than maybe you should wait.  It'll only get cheaper.

The base game is cheaper, and may be a better option then ($15 at GS right now on disc). The Gold edition does come with FC3 which is definitely a lot of content for cost, but the base game is fun while it lasts. I paid $42 thanks to an ebay deal on launch and enjoyed it enough to buy the season pass on sale.

Resist the FOMO.  It will be on sale again probably another 5 times before you finish Far Cry 4.  May also be on Gamepass or GWG, too.

 

I'm speaking to myself as much as i'm speaking to you.

Started playing We Happy Few and so far it actually seems better than I thought it would be. But the loading times are horrific even on the X.

So the fatal blows in MK11 are a step up from x-rays, if anything. I always laugh at the fact that the fighters just get up and continue fighting after having their skulls demolished, organs exploded, etc. Like *that* doesn't finish you, but this one last jab does, lol.

And did this guy just say "rich storytelling" is synonymous with the MK franchise?

Having said all that, I'll definitely get it once a complete edition with tasty price drop happens.

Thanks all for the feedback on FC5. I'm pretty sure my money would be better spent towards RE2. Speaking of which, I got to thinking about remaking classics from the ground up vs new IPs and annual/ongoing sequels.

As a developer, one would think bringing a beloved classic to the 4K era we live in now would be more assured to do well and sell a ton vs taking a risk on a new IP. However as a gamer, do we see that as lazy or would we want more classics truly built from the ground up to take advantage of modern hardware? Obviously we need new IPs so we don't get caught in an endless cycle of the same games from generation to generation, but you would think it wouldn't be too tasking to remake a game that they would already know inside and out.

I guess with the hype for RE2 and the ongoing anticipation of FFVII I'm surprised more games don't get this treatment.

What say ye?

It might be kind of stupid a lot of the time but I think MK does put in the most effort out of the fighting games to have lore and long running story-lines. I guess you could put Soul Calibur, and Blazblue in that category to a degree, but MK has been killing it in this aspect since MK9 at least, and everything since MK1 is more or less canon. Most of the other fighting games don't put much effort in to this or are just bad at it, even if the characters themselves are good, like most of Capcom's output or Tekken's often goofy nature.

 

NetherRealm in general seems to really care about this kind of thing, as shown with Injustice's story quality, and I think that helps MK stay the most successful fighter in terms of sales.

In terms of fighting games, yeah, that sounds about right.

Here's the updated list for the 2019 Australian Open contest for a $10 Xbox Gift + 1 Month Game Pass

 

 

Spoiler

 

All these players moved past the 2nd round into the 3rd.  The next sets of matches will take place over the next couple days.  I'll post once the 3rd round is complete.

I think the storytelling in both Injustice games have been the best for fighting games. I think DC has been smart in also extending the story in comics.

With the MK11 reveal thing, now we know the real reason why Ronda Rousey was "suspended" from Raw last year  :-

 

And is it me, or does Skarlett looks a lot like Mira from Killer Instinct?

I think the storytelling in both Injustice games have been the best for fighting games. I think DC has been smart in also extending the story in comics.

Yeah, it's definitely been a strong suit for the series. Having an ongoing series that is canon really fleshed out the world if you read them, but aren't really necessary if you don't want to. I read everything out in the build up to IJ2 and there are a TON of references to those specific comics in that game. Other games would surely benefit from this format as well but Injustice is in a unique position since it is a relatively young series AND WB owns DC Comics. Mortal Kombat is doing comics as well but to fully grasp MK lore you have to catch up on a LOT of games, so many that even just using YouTube or a Wiki is still daunting.

 

The closest thing coming to mind is Udon's Street Fighter books that essentially retell the official story of the games while fleshing stuff out, but they aren't canon.
