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?

Is it a yearly thing? Maybe I'm losing it but I feel like there is an "anime" sale every few months...

Is there a sale for Paladins? Wow. This game is so much better than Overwatch.

There was a sale recently which included 50% off the main pack, whatever, it's called.  It goes on sale fairly frequently recently so it probably won't be too long before another sale.  I'd get it if I played it more.  I have a lot of fun with Paladins, I just don't play games at any consistent times and so I'm always stuck with randoms.

Apex stuff: Was also bummed to hear you stop getting loot crates every level. The website says loot crates will be in the battle pass, I'm curious how many. To me it looks like you have to pay for cosmetics once you get the 45 Apex passes from leveling up since you only earn legend tokens after level 100. The tokens can be used to unlock characters or the store exclusive skins that require 10+ hours of playing to get enough tokens and an $18 purchase to unlock. I am a fan that you can't get duplicates though, so that's nice.

I feel it goes on sale every couple of months and I get tempted. I need to go back and try it again, I've played it a couple of times since it came out. Played the tutorial when it came out and then randomly a few months ago for about an hour. Thought it was funny when the achievement for having a paladins account longer than a year popped.

Anyone tried The Witcher 3 with the Xbox one enhanced features ?
Is it worth $15 ?
I have it one ps4, and wondering if it's worth getting again for the extra "enhanced " features .

It must be nice not to have bandwidth caps.

I pay $149 a month for just internet because of that dogshit.  You can use our service but not too much now!

Yep I can confirm on my "rewards dashboard" that combined with the Bing search app giving 200 on mobile. Over 500 points per day is pretty decent. I weep for all the newly broken families. 

 

It's until February 20th

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 personally have it on Switch and I like it for the quick play style it presents. I personally paid to unlock all the players for $10 and didn't mind doing it. Seasons is a solid edition over the old game. Personally I was happy with it overall. Still keep it in by library as a fallback game.

Although it mentions it is for new members, it seems to work for some people that used to have the service before. Doesn't work for anyone that currently has active service.

Marathon'd the last ~2-3 hours in RE7 last night since free time is so limited, and holy shit, it was great. Also, I had some creepy dreams, which horror games/movies don't usually do to me, so hats off to Capcom. GF thinks i'm crazy for thinking that's fun, but RE2 should be here today and I'm looking forward to it even more after finishing RE7.

So, just joined up with Game Pass for the first time and I'm having trouble finding it, how do I preinstall Crackdown 3? I'm not seeing it under the Game Pass header on console.

 

I live in a super rural area and if I want to play it by Friday, I've got to start it downloading today.

I didn't realize you can pre-install Gamepass games.  Is this true?  I assumed it was just for pre-orders.

Finally finished the main campaign for The Saboteur, 10 years later. I really enjoyed the game and will definitely be cleaning up all the side missions and getting all the achievements.

Played the tutorial when it came out and then randomly a few months ago for about an hour. Thought it was funny when the achievement for having a paladins account longer than a year popped.

The one hope about the leveling loot boxes is that your level will reset reset every season like Fortnite, but it's also possible they'll just have a free portion of the the BattlePass that lets you unlock some. I think we do have to keep a fair comparison for these. Other games with regular lootboxes for leveling are generally paid, like Overwatch or Destiny. If you compare it to Fortnite's free unlocks it's more generous as they only give a few free items per BP, and the occasional event stuff, and never let you get free skins. On the other side of the coin, Apex's boxes are filled with lots of trash like banner items and character lines to make it harder to get the character and weapon skins, much like Overwatch's many sprays and voice lines. 

 

I've had fun with Paladins but it does feel more jank than Overwatch due to it's much smaller budget and HiRez simply not holding their output to the same standards as Blizzard. It's also subject to massive rebalancing whenever the devs feel like it. There was a patch that completely changed the card loadout system and pissed off the majority of the playerbase to the point they eventually reverted it. The newly added crossplay and cross progression is a big positive against OW now though.

Guess I'll just have to wait and find out. Game Pass isn't letting me download anything right now.

Only for Bioshock 1. Just way more detailed compared to the 360 and smoother all around.

 

The rest of the games are only minor graphical upgrades I believe.

I'm pretty bitter about the first darkness going on sale regularly now just a week or so after I purchased it full price after years of it having no sales

 

but let's be honest that applies to a lot of my/our collection and I/we never learn

Could try the XBOX app on mobile devices too. It'll give you the option to install with Gamepass. Hopefully works out for you before Friday.

I typically find them on the Xbox My Games and Apps section, under the Ready to Install stuff.

 

That or the previously mentioned phone app.

Framerates are better, and textures are much higher resolution. They don't change any of the gameplay, including the clunky save system in Bioshock 1, but they sure are pretty. The Bioshock remasters are my go-to example for a remaster done well vs upscaled ports, and for $15 ($5 per game, with all DLC) it's easy to recommend if anyone is hankering for a replay.

60 FPS is the biggest upgrade. You can actually hit 60 FPS with the BC 360 version of because it has an unlock framerate option, but some of the physics on stuff in the environment get wonky. I never looked up the comparisons until now but they did improve some models and the like up to the PC standard, but they changed the lighting and some effects are missing, giving the game a different look. Details from Digital Foundry as usual, with some screen shot comparisons.
