Just an fyi but with a 1 cent filler you can get KH3 for 29.99 plus tax from Amazon provided you do the 30 off 60 Amex offer. You technically only have to use 1 Amex point to get it to work.

The rates aren't that bad, especially for a GWG, honestly. Whenever I play a game with achievements just for beating parts of the story, I'm surprised at how low they are. Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams was GWG too and it's a platformer...only 0.52% beat the final boss, so I feel like Celeste's numbers are actually pretty good.

Ha Giana Sisters has some crazy ratio achievements for a platformer on True Achievements. It always get's busted out at the end of big contests, so I can just imagine how much lower they are for Xbox in general.  https://www.trueachi...ut/achievements

Anyony play fragments oh him?

Thoughts?

I feel like playing something nice and mellow. 

It's ok, a decent indie walking sim but nothing amazing but it has it's moments.

Decided to grab Steamworld Dig 2 before the sale ended. Have it on PS4 and it’s a great game worthy of a double dip on the X.

Sale looks rough, not sure what I'm going to do for Rumble giveaway. Might just be spacebucks.

Is the Steep X-Games DLC worth owning? On sale for $10.04.

I play it solo and really enjoy it. It’s not for everyone. The missions can feel repetitive and the story isn’t great but if you want a huge open world to engage in tactical engagements, it’s great. I haven’t messed with any of the DLC except the extra In game stuff. Due to the lackluster story but fun gameplay, it’s nice to have to play when the mood catches you. It got some bad reviews but a lot of that was due to the story. The gameplay is solid and if you like tactical shooters, then it’s in your wheel house.

  

Thinking about ghost recon wildlands. Is it any good solo? And for the DLC (ultimate edition), can I play that solo too?
I read base game is fine to solo and just co tell the AI but u sure if that’s fun or if even possible to solo the DLC.


Deszaras pretty much hit the nail on the head. I'm currently playing through the DLC after not playing the base game for like a year I think. I'll add that in single player (unless they changed it) you control the 3 squad mates via commands. Doing so can get you pretty OP through upgrades such as tagging 4 enemies and having the silently snipe them. With upgrades you can get your squad mates to clear an outpost without you doing much fairly quickly. This makes things a little quicker than you having to deal with slowly stealthing or getting in big fire fights.

I've only played the narco road DLC so far. It's a fun change to the driving by giving you new vehicles like the monster truck and adding boost to a bunch of vehicles. Gameplay wise it's more of the same as single player with more vehicle oriented missions though. There's one type of side mission and one single player mission that are annoying by having passengers grab the wheel from you so the car will jerk hard in one direction. You don't have any squad mates in this DLC unless you play coop.

The reviews are abysmal. Linear, repetitive, forgettable, and full of bugs, according to all the Metacritic excerpts.

Anthem demo this weekend for pre-orders and EA Access. I ordered at BB to get the demo since my wife is working this weekend, fully intend to cancel.

I would buy Ghostbusters for no more than $5. Got it as a free rental from Redbox when it first came out and played an hour or two. It didn't compel me to buy it that's for sure. About the biggest plus is you can play local co-op.

Think a poor man's Diablo without any real loot. Or substance.

An absolute classic and one of my favorite Genesis games that I still return to today. It's also included in the Sega Genesis Collection, so that's something to keep in mind if you can ever see yourself picking that up. Achievements would be the only reason I could see for getting the BC XBLA version vs the Sega Genesis Collection, as I think the latter only has one Comix Zone-related achievement.

Honestly, that review doesn't even make it sound worth the $5...

Just watch the traiiler on xbox.

It makes  Ghostbusters Sanctum of Slime look like a classic in comparison.

Resident Evil 2 reviews are all coming in highly positive. Not a big surprise, I just need to hold off I think, it's all single player I'll keep telling myself.

I just finished RE7 last night, I just need to play the Not A Hero DLC before Thursday night. I original put off playing it in the hopes of playing it in VR first, but I wasn't shelling out for PSVR for 1 game. Damn do I wish I played it sooner. After the whirlwind this series has been through and the absolute clusterfuck of RE6, it's amazing to me just how much this game nails everything about the classic games while also moving into first-person. 

 

I'm more excited than ever for this REmake, and it seems like it's going to sell pretty well, so hopefully we're out of the dark times for the series.

I think I'm going to make myself actually play my copy of Resident Evil 7 before jumping in.

I have one minor, maybe major, gripe with RE 7. Enough people have seemed to just have still not played it I'll keep it to myself, but it's not going to be an issue at all for RE2make.

Interesting, I need to go through my offers. I wonder if I'll have it since I don't have points.


*Assuming you have an Amex card and the targeted offer*

Yeah. Just search the interwebs for Amex 30 off of 60 Amazon and check if you're eligible. Then edit down the Amex points used to cover $.01.

In Bloomy's post there is a spoiler that shows Just Cause 4 - 13 days remaining.  What does this mean?  Not showing on sale for me.  I've been out of the CAG loop so forgive me if it's a simple question.

Usually means that many days until a possible sale. But in this case is when it may have to do with it hitting GamePass.

Edit: I miss read. It is likely due to it going on sale. Not
GamePass. Was thinking about Crackdown 3. I didn’t get much sleep. 😂
