Completed chapter 5 of Celeste, Rare Achievement popped with only 9.74% unlock rate, you can see the unlocking rate going down from the first chapter (38%) Second chapter (26%) Third chapter (16%) Fourth chapter (12%) and Fifth (9%) at this rate I am guessing only the reviewers actually finished this game? or everyone just played it on Switch?

Score just got a free $25 gift card for Walmart from work for the Christmas party. Getting an Xbox card for sure.

Might be time to bite on Ace Combat 7 since I'm really wanting that game right now (edit: add to my backlog and never play)

After playing the one-shot for RE2, I'm definitely excited for it but I don't think I've ever payed full price for a Remake or Remaster. My wife is also gonna take over the Xbox for KH3 so...bleh. IDK what to do.

Just got done talking to chat and they'll exchange mine for another X and have it expedited shipped, everything free. Yay I guess?

Hopefully this one is better.  Did they say if it was new or another refurb?

Worth noting, though, that this is a remake from the ground up. It's telling the same story, but in terms of effort/gameplay/assets, it might as well be a new game. I don't say this often, but it looks like it's worth $60 to me.

I hope you can turn off those annotations. Call me old fashioned, but I'd like to try and find items on my own without a note telling me something is there.

 

 

Nevertheless, this is the first Resident Evil game I've ever preordered. Friday cannot come soon enough.

It looks great. This clip is absolutely jaw-dropping!

I am also tempted to pay full price for RE2.  Played the one shot demo with my wife watching and she was super into it.  She would really like to watch me play it though she feels it is too much for her to handle.  The CAG in me says no, the only game ive paid full price this generation was Gears 4.  Trying to convince myself to wait until its 40 dollars instead.

Yeah. If any game is worth MSRP is debatable, but I don't think the fact it's a remake makes it worth any less. I have an Amazon gift card which would cover most of it, I'm also tempted to get KH3 but I know I can finish RE2 a lot faster.

Didn't say but it'll most likely refurb.

Those percentage rates will go way up as more people play it. The majority of the achievements you can get with the assists on.

the more people that buy it the more likely they will remake Resident Evil 3 Nemesis

I am catching up on the past few pages. Overwatch is my most played game. The online community for me, I have everyone on mute, I see no reason to listen to anyone even when I play competitive. My biggest gripe with the game is people’s hero choice. I still get pissed when I’m on offense pushing the payload and my team goes Hanzo, Widowmaker, Ana, Zenyatta, 4 long range snipers. Typically I pick towards the end because I don’t mind playing fill but when we start with 4 snipers then I get confused at what to fill since we are supposed to push the payload. I usually end up going roadhog or soldier 76 in that scenario since I know I’m going to need to heal myself. I guess what I’m saying is, I wish more people made an effort to build a strong team in competitive instead of always picking the favorite DPS hero they want to use to get kills. Now if you switch over to quick play or arcade mode, by all means pick whatever hero you feel like playing since IMO those modes are just to mess around anyways.

On Celeste, I think almost any GWG is going to have a high rate of ppl getting 1 achievement and quitting if they realize the game is not for them.

is far cry 5 worth it for $30? i just need the dlc to play already beat the main campaign...just not sure if it's worth $30 or not......my minds telling me no..but my body is telling me yeah..

The disc version of the vanilla Far Cry 5 is on sale at GameStop right now for $15.  If you hate GameStop, you can price match it at Best Buy or Target.  But I'm confused by your post.  Are you saying that you only need the DLC?

It's been free before but thanks for posting for those that didn't get it before. I don't know if free for good or only shows ever now and then.

Yeah I know, my point was that such a highly regarded game and contender for GOTY on The Game Awards and multiple outlets has such low completion rate, the game is pretty hard I know (in the last stage as I type) but is not very long. People just seem to quit too quick on this type of game.

I would imagine your fiance being a woman likely has something to do with attracting more assholes on Live then most men/boys do.  
 
I almost never game with a mic unless I am playing with friends.


This is very true. It wasn’t even on my mind when discussing here, but we’ve talked about it a lot - she often mentioned how she’d be in a group with 2-3 guys, and she’d be the only one to get a message (her GT calls out that she’s female, also). I guess the trolls think she’s an easy target, but then she just gets mad and gives it right back and/or kicks their asses in game, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Very good points, and my fiancé agrees with the frustration on playing fill. I usually fill as well, but have been tending to stick with D.Va or Lucio recently since they’re my most reliable characters. Also, she suggested that if you have to fill and only have long-range healers, Orisa is a good pick to move a payload by yourself.
