I guess it's Mortal Kombat night. Another person with an early copy of what appears to be the PS4 version did a breakdown of the single player's modes aside from Story, the kind of stuff you could actually grind long-term, and potential sore spots. Really, a lot of it isn't that useful until we know what they microtransactions actually look like, and see if anything is changed with an early patch. I had heard that there is a day-one patch out already but I don't know on what platforms.

 

It does detail the Augments system that I hadn't seen before though. Essentially they took the Gear system from Injustice 2 and split it. This way the armor pieces themselves are purely cosmetic, but they now have slots that the actual gameplay affecting stats can be be attached to through Augment pieces.

I just deleted Mortal Kombat X this morning because my fighting game reflexes aren't what they used to be, and I was getting my ass kicked by the computer too many damn times in a row for it to be fun anymore.  

 

Damn, I miss the 90s.  :cry:

I downloaded Soul Calibur II HD instead since that was one that I know that I can play relatively well.  And the extra space on my hard drive is going to Monster Hunter World now.  I don't beat myself up anymore if I'm not good at a game.  No fighting game related pun intended there.

There is an Indie Darling Bundle Vol3 that just went up.

It's on sale for $10.74 (75% off) for the next 6 days and includes.

 

 

1979 Revolution Black Friday

Nefarious

Omega Strike

Shikhondo Soul Eater

All 4 games cost AT LEAST $11.99 on their own. I only played  Shikhondo and it's a solid 2D shooter and the bundle is worth it for that alone.

Where is this on sale?  Not seeing it on the MS site for the spring sale or weekly deals

 

edit: NVM.  Found it via google.  Gonna play Shikhondo immediately

I feel you. I was playing the Street Fighter collection, and was getting dusted by the third or fourth opponent in every game I tried. Even Street Fighter Alpha 2, which I spent countless hours playing on the Saturn! Bah, being in your forties sucks.

The bundle appears at the very bottom of the Xbox One deals tab.  It's almost like they didn't really want you to buy it because the deal was too good.  And I would get it if I didn't already own two of the games, Omega Strike and Shikhondo: Soul Eater.  $2.50 each is a great deal.  $5 each for 1979 Revolution Black Friday and Nefarious isn't that good of a deal for me, so I'll wait for them to go on sale individually.

Forget who posted originally, but for anyone stuck on the motocross quest for GP/Rewards, if you get an achievement in the 360 MX game and then close it via the 360 menu rather than the XB1 menu, that seems to trigger it. Had it sit for a week with no update, but I tried it that way after unlocking another achievement and the next day it was done, just had to redeem the points with the last box.

Anybody get the Oprencia quest to unlock? Still waiting on those. Also added Edge to my phone, did the 10 searches, no 500 points. Is Bethesda in charge?

Oprencia glitched for me too. These quests are so hit and miss. There’s a couple that aren’t working for me

If people already have copies and are posting proof of their findings I don't think it's that big a deal, especially since it sounds like they have the day one patch already. Acting like it's going to have some massive change in three days isn't all that realistic. It's not quite the same as Anthem's early week on EA Access but it's probably a close comparison.

It took me forever to finish the Absolver quest because the "Reach level 5" achievement didn't pop. I had to go kill one of the bosses in order to get the second achievement (my first was the "Join a school" one), and of course I went with the twins for my boss, providing an extra challenge. BTW, if anyone is still doing the Absolver quest, killing a boss may be the fastest way to 2 achievements, as you get one for killing it and one for looting its weapon.

It's kind of funny reading posts by people that are getting absolutely destroyed in the first tower after the tutorial in MK11.  I was tempted to preorder this game (my main source of enjoyment of MKX and IJ2 was from the towers/multiverse stuff rather than online), but I think I'll just wait for the Legendary/XL version like I did with the previous NRS games.  Maybe they'll have balanced some of this stuff by then.

I'm only bitching about confirmed details.
The game doesn't need to be out for that.

I guess I’ll form my own opinion on MK11 instead of relying on random dude on internet that’s uploaded something to YouTube. Unless someone can point me to an actual news outlet, review site, whatever, I don’t see any reason to freak out. I’ve loved everything NetherRealm has done, so I’m none too worried.

It's fine if you want to form your own opinions, really it's what most people should strive to do, but simply not being from an professional source doesn't discount what people have to say about what they've experienced and found so far. Waiting for posts from "actual news outlet or review site" doesn't exactly sound like forming your own opinion to me though. None of the official news sites are going to post about the kind of potentially harsh grinds that may be intended to make microtransactions appear more appealing, or anti-consumer decisions that definitely do exist like "you can't play these modes offline". The reason for that is that they have to abide by the review embargo that doesn't lift until the game is actually released.

 

On the other hand, you do see news sites posting about the datamined DLC list because it is not actually accessible to other means and could be construed as "speculation" or whatever.

 

I'm not telling people that they should or shouldn't play or enjoy a game based on most of these decisions, and I don't think anything found so far is going to be a deal breaker for most people. I'm just posting what the community has found because I think it can at least be relevant to discussion of a new game.

I can't believe we are basically a month and a half away from E3. I guess that's why Microsoft dropped the Xbox One SAD Edition already, you don't want to drop that on an E3 stage, so I guess I can give them credit for getting that out of the way before E3. Do you guys think we see the Xbox Two at E3 this year? I honestly have no expectations, I had some expectations last year that didn't pan out and I can't think of what I want to see this year. I am already really excited about some of the things announced for this year.

 

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Animal Crossing (I think my kids might like this one, they love to just hang out in Minecraft so I'm thinking they might enjoy hanging out in Animal Crossing)

Ori and the Will of the Wisps

Skull and Bones??? Is this 2019 or 2020?

Pokemon Sword and Sheild

 

I honestly don't know what to expect from Microsoft, I just hope they don't spend the whole press conference announcing a new Xbox Two all digital console coming out next year, hardware is great but I think they are still lacking in the first party games department, so they need to show us why we need an Xbox upgrade.

 

If they are moving to such an all digital future, I need to start seeing some variety in these Winter/Spring/Summer/Fall sales. I looked at the list this time and everything I want I already picked up in a previous similar sale for the exact same price it is this time. We need more variety of titles or some lower bargain prices on some of the things that keep popping up again and again. It gets boring to see the same $5 titles everytime. That is my easy buy price, if something hits $5, so it would be nice to see some variety in that $5 range even if its really old games that came out around launch.

My point was basically, what Joe Schmoe says, doesn’t matter to me. The internet is an inherently negative place, even more so these days. It’s frankly just tiring to hear people shitting on things when they haven’t even seen, heard, played them yet.

Anyone have any input on DBZ Fighterz? Is the season pass worth the extra cash? Or should I get the base and wait until the SP has a greater discount?

It's hard to guess about the Xbox Two. I don't think we'll be seeing a big blowout for it yet, probably just a more specific tease than we had last year. This is likely going to be the last big E3 for Xbox One by itself, and if Sony really isn't doing another Sony Direct during E3 than I assume the game count is going to be higher than normal. On the "hardware" side I'd expect a bit more info on the streaming stuff before the Two.

 

From Xbox I'd love to see actual details on Halo Infinite, some sort of announcements from the purchased studios, and if they really get crazy a Smash announcement if Banjo, Steve, or Master Chief could actually happen. Gears 5 is probably going to be the biggest first-party showing since it's out this year, and Cyberpunk 2077 could manage to be one of the bigger third-parties again.

 

If Sony doesn't have ANY show, I'm curious where their usual marketing partner games like CoD and Destiny will show up. Destiny 2 is rumored to not be getting a big expansion after the current announced DLC is done, with development having shifted entirely to D3, so maybe Bungie won't show up at all.

E3 coming up is a reminder we haven't heard anything since that Battletoads announcement last E3.
