You can largely avoid the weapon jamming by using weapons from your stash. But yeah, the constantly respawning enemies (and their crazy levels of aggression) are too much.


The PC version has a save anywhere function which makes it way easier too. On consoles, you might go 45 minutes between saves just to be killed by enemies you already killed that have respawned. They removed it because hard drives weren’t standard last gen.

Allot of questionable things happening this year and so far the thing confusing me the most is why is there a Game Gear Micro coming? Who is it for? Why does this exist? How can any hands hold it? Are there really any must play games on Game Gear that's worth revisiting at all? Three hours of battery life on AA batteries?? And so on and so on...

The dumbest part is they’re making 4 different models, each with only 4 games.

I guess they just wanted to prove they could make a system smaller than the GBA Micro

I would like one, but that screen is going to by tiny. If you’ve played a Gameboy Micro, you know how small the screen is (the Micro is awesome though), and the Game Gear is supposedly even smaller. I will probably still get one to put with my Micro collection though.

Supposedly? The Gameboy Micro screen is 2" and the Game Gear Micro screen is 1.15"

I Know Japanese preorders give you the bonus of the screen magnifier attachment if you order all the colors so your eyes would only hurt slightly less or at least hurt less enough so you can focus on your hand cramps if you're playing it.

IMO the only good thing about those Game Gear Minis is that they made me aware of more Shining games.  If the silly things weren't sized for my chihuahua's hands instead of mine, and they weren't so expensive, I MIGHT consider getting that specific color.  This REEEEEEKS of cash grab.

well I won my 3 ranked matches it didnt take that many matches to do it

 

holy crap does it pop a lot of achievements just button pushing they were poping nonstop the entire time there is no real reasonable way to work it into the daily achievement for 50 points so I just got it over with

 

it was ridiculous how good some people I got matched with were at rank 15

 

a few people damn near flawless victory'd my ass and we were both supposed to be beginners and I'm not that terrible at button mashing not sure how they were so good, glad it's over with

 

the rubber band on control method worked awesome for the long dark game so I recommend that method for everyone

 

if you keep an eye on the progress via the app you shouldnt pop any achievements and can get it while afking easily

I had a similar experience with MvC:I lol. Did the Quest register for you though? I got three ranked wins and a lot of achievements, but none of the wins registered on the Game Pass quest page.

Hmm...is it time to pounce on The Surge 2 and season pass for those prices? Can anyone vouch for this game?


Really good game. Much improved over the Surge 1. Totally recommend.

The Vasara games are fun, but its clear they were designed as quarter eaters with some really unfair bosses which just demolish you. The Timeless mode is pretty fun, too, and has more in common with Sky Force / is more forgiving. The co-op also looks cool but I think it's local only.

This is how to get the 2 runs for the Ashes Cricket Gamepass quest.  I would read it just for the hilarity of it.

Looks like there are new June perks for a few games for Xbox Ultimate GamePass members. The only one that stood out as being new to me was the PSO2 one, but there are probably others.

Open up Newegg in Incognito, no adblock. Wait for the $10 new customer offer to pop up. After you get the code, add this $10 gift card to your cart and checkout with the code.

 

There's limitations on multiple accounts so you'll have to figure those out if you're going that route. It's IP limited so you might get emails without the code or you might get your order cancelled. Try different amounts ($11, $12) or different cards I guess.

 

If you're trying to get the popup on mobile, you need to switch it to the desktop site at the very bottom first.

 

Enjoy.

I'm glad that I got in on this deal before somebody on SlickDeals with 30 email addresses exploits it, and NewEgg stops the promotion. Raise, the gift card website has a similar deal, where you get $10 off your first gift card. But, I've used them before, and they tie your account to a phone number and text you a code to log into their website. So, if they ping that somebody has already used your number (which can be frustrating if you own a cell number that was used by a previous Raise user), it can be hell to get that deal. I am glad that this went so easily, despite me having two old NewEgg accounts that I can't remember the info for.

I would assume there's an android emulator so I'm not sure a purpose in buying one.

I feel really stupid - I got the email but there is no code. Where in the newegg email is the code?

 

I reread the OP and I guess I didn't get a code.

Lies, we don't even know the price of a Series X yet :) Maybe its $999.99 and Microsoft doesn't want to sell any.
