Figured this was coming. Hope they confirm it soon and tell us whether it’s Xbox only or also on PC. I can’t imagine it’s both, but I bought the PC version last week on sale at Epic and have been holding off in case I want to return it. I have an RTX 2070 so the ray tracing may be worth me paying to play on PC. Would still like to have all the info. I AM a cheap ass after all.

Wow at The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. I believe that is the first time it’s ever been on sale, and a good discount too

So many people I know have been waiting for this to go on sale or get listed on Game Pass.

Trueachievements just sent me a message with the 2019 site leaderboards

 

My highlights according the message

 

Top 10,000 for Xbox sports gamerscore (#8394) 

Top 10,000 for Sports gamerscore (#9205)

Funny I haven't really played sports games like I used to so I'm surprised by this

 

Some other site stats 

Total Gamerscore #35,289

Total number of achievements won #34,724

 

The sports games could be racing games. When MS sent the year in review a few years ago racing games were in the same category as sports. I haven't played sports games in years but have been playing both Forza series the last 3 - 4 years.

I am so glad I resisted the urge to buy during the GS B2G2.

If I'm going to play one Far Cry game, which Far Cry game should it be?

3 had the best antagonist in the series during the first half and the gameplay barely changed in the sequels, so that would be my vote. 4 onwards have co-op if that appeals to you. New Dawn is basically a standalone story dlc for 5 but the others don't really have any story carryover.

A bit late but here are my stats for 2019, my summary does not have as much detail as others though for some reason:

517 Achievements in 83 games

15,227 Gamerscore

23,481 TrueAchievement points (15,227 Gamerscore).

I always found 3 the most interesting, but that was the first one in their current style. Lot of people hate the dude bro character but I never minded it. Hard to say if the "Quality of Life" stuff in newer Far Cry games is that much better than 3. I know I fell off 5 pretty quickly, just seemed overwhelming and I was tired of the formula.

Thanks for the new page bloomy.

I’m really tempted to get AC: odyssey, but I know I probably won’t ever have time to play it, let alone finish it.

Looks like The Verge is walking back that story about what the Series X has in the back in the Wario64 tweet

Dammit, hopefully Sony doesn't walk back on the next Playstation being called the PS5.

 

And still hope for more USB slots!

Yeah, this week is an instant win just for this! That was a loooong wait for a sale. Though it’s probably a sign it’s hitting game pass soon lol.

They should call it the Xbox 64 and put 64 USB slots on the back that can each take a 16tb external hard drive so you can have 1,024 tb of space. If games are all in 4K next gen we might need the space if we horde another 1,000 next gen games and have backwards compat.

I’m just really excited to look at all my unplayed games in a new dash board.

Bloomy goes through the effort of making a new thread, why can’t Microsoft make the effort of making new sales? Seriously, does the assassins creed franchise go on sale every third week or something?

I Like your idea...

 

OR...

 


 

And I just realized I got What Remains of Edith Fitch confused with The Vanishing of Ethan Carter and I'm realizing now I have no idea what either game is about.

Having recently gotten a PSVR, that whole box thing is the most annoying part of it. I had to put that box on an outlet that is on a light switch. And if that light switch accidentally turned off, not only can I not play my PSVR, I can’t play the PS4 by itself because the HDMI goes between the two.

Stupid thing to complain about and I could change some things around to avoid it but the whole box HDMI thing is just a half-assed approach.

 

Did you get the newest model? I have a launch model and had to find a workaround for the PSVR box not supporting HDR

Can confirm I have been waiting since the 4K patch was announced for Ethan Carter to go on sale... So at least two years? I'm sure all of us purchasing it has appeased the Game Pass Gods. Our sacrifice will bring a bounty of free games.

 

 

 

Pretty decent start to 2020. I've already completed and 100%'d The Walking Dead Season 2 (360) and Disney Classics: Aladdin & Lion King. I'm going to finish off The Walking Dead: Definitive Series this week

to me the only right answer is 3. Just the best of the bunch imo. It's what vice city is to GTA

 

I've always wanted a Jurassic Park game similar to the scenery and gameplay of 3

 

but have fun with the yetis in #4 if you ever get the chance. For a while it's a blast yeti hunting

This is the correct answer. 3 is just SO fun, it's such a labour of love with perfect gameplay and a great story.

4 really kind of sucks, but the DLC is quite awesome.

3 is definitely the best followed by 5. They both have great antagonists and while the stories are good, I love the themes your characters deal with and are generally overlooked. In both of them, I ended up questioning how I saw the story I played through and my role in it.
