I see that captbrannigan doesn't get obvious jokes.


I think that’s the joke, like the cartoon character.

FYI - Timespinners and Lego City Undercover are live on XBox Game Pass. Timespinners is a surprise, it was announced as PC Game Pass only.

 

Timespinners is PC Game Pass only, however it's also Play Anywhere, so if you have Game Pass Ultimate then you have access to the Xbox version due to Play Anywhere not Xbox Game Pass.  Hope that makes sense.

Mostly I was going to get it play some old school games with the kids.
I was mostly looking for something quick and easy but seams like it takes some work. I tried to get an snes classic but they have been discontinued and pulled from shelves.i was thinking the raspberry pi would be a cheaper solution instead of trying to pay over 100 for an snes classic.
I was eyeing the ps classic but heard it's pretty horrible.


Check Kohls. I actually bought a snes classic earlier today from Kohls online at retail price with free shipping.

That's odd, at the top of my screen it says this is the Xbox Deals thread in the Video Game Deals subforum... I mean, even the Off Topic & Lifestyle sub forum has threads with titles implying a topic. I don't see a kitchen sink thread for whatever random garbage you want to post, and I can assure you that this isn't that thread. *edit* Based on other comments in this thread, your post isn't an "obvious joke." Sarcasm doesn't work well in text. Maybe try a jk or lol or smiley face?
 

Speaking of kitchen sinks and garbage.  How many people have a kitchen sink with a garbage disposal?  Do you recommend?  How well does it work.  Can I grind up old PS3 and 360 games in it?

Timespinner is a excellent game. I've been playing it on Vita and the soundtrack is really good.

It definitely takes its inspiration from Symphony of the Night.

 

I'm excited for Blazing Chrome. That looks like a fun run and gunner that takes inspiration from Contra.

 

Just added both to my download queue.

Awesome thank you!! Hopefully it'll still be available when I get paid tomorrow.

I was told at Best buy and Walmart they were discontuined and couldn't get them anymore.

Lame, so my black Elite Controller that I bought that pre-owned from GameStop has stick drift. I didn't notice it until I played some shooters and set the stick deadzone below 10% or so. Problem is, no local stores have one I can exchange for.

On TMNT:

The TMNT license has been flopped around from Konami, to Ubisoft, to Activision, and now likely rests with THQ Noridic along with the general Nickelodeon license. They were in that shit Nick arcade racer last year which was published by GameMill Entertainment, so I assume they're part of the bigger license now in theory. That said, WB was allowed to license them for Injustice 2, so it's possible they aren't under an exclusive license anymore. If that's the case it may be possible for Konami to put out a collection of their classic games, pretty much the list 2ndopp posted would likely be the selection, along with the Gameboy stuff, judging from how they've handle Castlevania and Contra. Personally I don't think those NES games hold up nearly as well as Castlevania or Contra. I wouldn't mind Tournament Fighters getting a re-release but it's not exactly well balanced and it really doesn't hold up when compared to something like the Street Fighter Anniversary collection as far as retro fighting games are concerned. Turtles in Time is the real gem in there.

 

With all that in mind, we have no evidence to support that Konami wants to pay for a license to something in the current era. For example, Pro Evolution Soccer is about to have some superficial changes this year because they wouldn't pony up for whatever soccer license they've used for a while now. They are actively releasing titles from the back catalog that are easy and cheap to release following Capcom's model, along with new but cheap to develop stuff based on their own IP. One big factor I'm seeing as a possible sticking point is Disney vs Nickelodeon. For whatever reason, Disney seems to not give a shit about their old games, and I get the impression that they've been giving the licenses out for dirt cheap (All the reasonably priced Star Wars re-releases, Disney Afternoon Collection from Capcom, Double Fine being able to afford to buy back their original IP while still independent). With Nick, we just don't know what they're mindset is, as they've only really been allowing shovelware to come out until THQ decided to remaster some of their decent older games.

 

On the Switch Lite:

As far as I'm aware, your digital purchases on Switch are locked to one console at time, even if you log in with your account on a new system There is some sort of system transfer feature, but I don't think it's really intended to be used regularly. Not a big deal if you buy primarily physical, but still something to factor in for current owners considering getting a second one. I would say Cloud Saves could be a saving grace, but it's not exactly when big games like Animal Crossing and Splatoon 2 are left out for asinine reasons. If you plan on "upgrading" to the smaller model and getting rid of the old one it seems more appealing, but I wouldn't want to sacrifice TV play myself.

 

Hopefully the build quality is improved on it. I hear a lot about issues with stick drift in JoyCons.

Speaking of kitchen sinks and garbage.  How many people have a kitchen sink with a garbage disposal?  Do you recommend?  How well does it work.  Can I grind up old PS3 and 360 games in it?  

Apparently Insinkerator disposals can handle gravel dry, so I think they can handle old PS3 and 360 games.

 

But beware pulpy plants, like cut flowers and such.  You WILL be digging those out of your disposal.

 

Lame, so my black Elite Controller that I bought that pre-owned from GameStop has stick drift. I didn't notice it until I played some shooters and set the stick deadzone below 10% or so. Problem is, no local stores have one I can exchange for.

Just imagine - if that store had done its job when taking the controller in, you wouldn't have even had the option to buy it to begin with.  Are there any stores close enough for them to transfer one to your store, or is there any online stock?

 

You MIGHT be able to get the controller repaired or replaced through your local Microsoft Store, but heavily YMMV.  I had a friend go with me to the mall and while I was there he talked to the store about his TWO Elite controllers that had issues and he walked out with two brand new controllers.  In case I haven't mentioned it yet, heavily YMMV.

Thanks for the posts on Timespinner. Didn’t know it would be available courtesy of Play Anywhere. Nice surprise.

Funny that every time I look at the name I want to think it’s Timesplitter, lol.

If I wasn't still finishing Bloodstained, I'd be starting Timespinner soon, but I don't think I can handle more than one game like that a time. 

 

Also, 25 hours in, Bloodstained is still awesome.

Just to be clear, I am not joking or playing a character. I legitimately think a forum thread going off topic is exactly the same as a soccer game being interrupted for a picnic. I constantly see posts from people asking about a game on sale get drowned out by a bunch of "regulars" that want to argue about WWE or some random AV question. That's cool that you want to talk to your little internet buddies and no one else really cares, but I feel bad for the guy trying to decide what the best bang is for his $5 that's being ignored. Like, can you imagine asking for fitness advice on a fitness forum and even there no one wants to listen to you or help you out?


As for R6S, my bro unlocked different characters than I did with renown so those don't share. We both got the R6 credits from the season passes, but I'm fairly sure just R6 credits wouldn't share. Actually, those r6 credits might be because I changed up how I game share and had to buy the season passes again on my bro's account. Some of it might have even come from The Division or uplay or something. Usually monopoly money doesn't share, like ESO and GTA have both screwed me with that in the past.

I'm pretty sure this is universally the same for all games, or else you would be screwing the dev/pub out of their fair share by being able to spend one purchase of in-game currency more than once.

That sounds like an improvement to me.

 

I do agree and if I wanted to talk about WWE or Nintendo Switch I would go into those forums. The main four or five people in here just use this thread as a hangout for their group of friends though. At this point it is no use to complain because it has been going on for years and doesnt look like it will end.

Dude.


Give it a rest. Part of the reason why the thread is so active is because the regulars enjoy talking with each other. We have built a good community here. You know if you don't like it YOU could always turn notifications off and just check the thread on Mondays. Or YOU could move to another site that fits your strict needs better.

Unless it's truly offensive or people just being asshats we don't need thread Nazis.

I use mobile 99% of the time so maybe it's different on tapatalk/PC but 4 of the 5 previous pages have taken over 48 hours to hit the 100 post limit. I admit it is a decent amount of off topic but feel like that's still a slow post/day count. I don't think anyone's post is getting drowned unless other platforms the pages go by faster. There are other threads with less off topic where people's questions go unanswered as well, so I don't think that is solely due to off topic.

I'd be a lot more sympathetic to brannigan's cause if I haven't seen him discuss PS4 exclusives and switch bundles in this thread. Granted they were somewhat connected to xbox but if brannigan is going to quote the title of thread at people, neither of the conversations had to do with xbox live deals.

When I see posts talking about shit I don’t care about I just scroll by which I’ve done a lot lately with Bloodstained posts and some other shit I forgot about.

I’ve gotten too many deals from this thread over the years to be telling the regulars what to do and idgaf either way anyway, if someone don’t like it they can always go make their own thread.

Also my son got the season 1 pass and he got the 600 rbcredits or whatever they’re called but when I bought him season 2 edition on disc he redeemed the season 2 code and we both got the 600 credits and no longer needed the disc.

On the console store, if you go to any game page and press start you can go to the store settings and turn off auto playing videos for all store pages. My friend didn't know about that so maybe a few of you want it off as well.

I think you're are both absolutely right, and 100% wrong at the same time. If you really go into it and look at all the posts, they are probably about 90% about games. Sometimes the thread goes off topic and that's ok! Skim over them or block the people you don't care to listen too. (I've blocked 1 or 2 myself :P) But trying to completely get rid of the banter would be taking the community away from this thread. It's a lil slice of comfortableness in the vast wasteland of the internet. Not for nothing but when you make points about games and not argue with others I personally find your insight very helpful. So let's stamp out the bitterness (not only you but everyone) and go back to the fun lovin thread this is!

I Turned it off, but it came back on after the last update. It legit is the worst and I don't know why they have to make the videos SO MUCH MORE INCREDIBLY LOUD THAN NECESSARY.

 

Also I kinda feel with Game Pass I finally hit the point of "I Have too many games to play", but then again doing a tally of all the games bought this year I've gotten 73 so far. I'll play them, you'll see!
