If you sign into your "Uplay" pretty sure you get Watch Dogs 2 for PC.... if you're into that

All the free stuff is PC only right?

It should still be available, I got the conversion message a few weeks ago when entering new codes.

Also your gamerpic is GOD TIER

Thanks! Would you mind pointing me somewhere I can check even more info on it, I don't want to screw it, and want to get the most out of it once I get a console. 

 

And yeah, Pre-Vergil memes. LMAO.

Man quite a process, might have to do this if you want some Ubisoft stuff https://drops-register.ubi.com/#/en-US

I can't even get past the first step.  I click the link.  Click login using twitch.  It then prompts me I think for my uplay login.  Which is stupid IMO.  I just click log on using twitch.  I am logged into both twitch and uplay in my browser so I know my credentials.  Neither works.  

 

I own most of their current games so not sure it even matters much.

Trackmaina PC is a whole different beast than that port we got for the Xbox One, wonder if they'll bring the real version to the Series X

I'm confused. As far as I understand, 360 and Xbox games that you download, you own. Own as in even if you stop subscribing to gold, you can still play them. I have downloaded many 360 and Xbox games on my Xbox One X that were apart of GWG and I thought they were mine. Xbox One games are gone if you stop paying.  Are you referring to 360 and Xbox games that you download on a 360? You don't have an Xbox One?
 

I was referring to Xbox the division of Microsoft, not Xbox the original console.

I was trying to be more specific than just saying Microsoft, but I won't make that mistake again. From now on I'll only refer to Microsoft and Sony (instead of their gaming divisions) when discussing decision-making about their respective consoles.

I was referring to the change in Games with Gold policy specifically for Xbox One (current-generation) games.

I've had Xbox Live Gold membership for over 11 years. I know very well that I can keep/play Gold 360 and Original Xbox games (on either last-gen or current-gen consoles) even if my Gold membership lapses. I was lamenting Microsoft's policy change for Xbox One games so that it matches Sony's less user-friendly policy for both PS3 and PS4 Plus games: i.e. can't keep/play them if membership in the respective program (Gold/Plus) lapses.

Spoiler


I still have my 360 and still download Gold 360 games on it, as well as Gold Original Xbox console games.
I also have an Xbox One Slim, and of course I download all the Gold Xbox One games on that.

I hope this clears up the confusion.

And regarding some of the other comments: no need for insults and hostility. There is already an ample supply of both elsewhere on the internet.

Kind of hope that futuristic title comes to consoles as well. I know Battle Royale has been done to death, but it looked pretty cool. And, I think the Twitch integration to change the game world is interesting.

I think they stopped because games are getting more and more expensive to make so just letting you keep the games wasn't something they wanted to do. I think it's cool that M$ still lets you keep 360 and Xbox games. I never expected to be able to keep current gen games but I can see how one might assume since it was like that on 360. I still think online play should be free(like it was on PS3 and Wii and still is on PC) and that subscription services like Gold should only be if you want those extra perks like new games every month and discounts.

No Beyond Good and Evil 2, Gods & Monsters or Skull & Bones during the Ubisoft Forward. They did mention they're having another Forward. I wouldn't really be surprised if Skull & Bones gets cancelled, I hope it doesn't though.

I'd put it up there with the album of 2003, got Rick Rubin to produce it coming off their At-the-drive-In band, Storm Thorgerson did the cover of Pink Floyd fame. That was probably one of the last full albums before everything went to singles. Weird thing while I like the album I think the break up did everyone well. I think Jim Ward going and making Sparta was a great move. He's done some fantastic stuff also. Cedric and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, still kind of trying to figure it out. Even though the latter is definitely one of those virtuoso guitar players

 

Yeah, i'm one of those people who'd been a fan of At the Drive-In.

The record after De-loused, Frances the Mute, was a masterpeice, imo. They were pretty good live too.

I stopped following the Mars Volta and Rodriguez-Lopez's projects back around 2009, but they put out a bunch of good records from 03 to 09.

I guess ORL was bound to run out of ideas one day, with how much he's been producing.

I Don't think Ubisoft was as bad as EA's, but that's possibly because of the bias I have of EA having annual sports titles made all the more terrible with predatory microtransactions that just shut my brain off. Still, nothing from Ubi wowed me. There were no surprises and I'm at the point now where pre-rendered CG trailers have to be holy shit levels of hype and surprise for me to care. I'll still pick up Viking Rap Simulator, Far Cry whatever number we're at and Watch Doge 3 when the Ultimate editions go on sale for 75% off with that being said.

To be fair, at least EA didn't pull a 2K and add an NBA game to a predatory microtransaction filled casino simulator... Rumor has that one of the execs at Take-Two is also a board member of the ESRB. Hence NBA 2K20 miraculously being rated Everyone instead of Teen like it should have been.

I Mean, there's that, but I still think of things like Fifa's Ultimate Team crap where there are so many stories of people spending thousands trying to get a specific player. Now I know there's a point of personal player responsibility itself as well, but just so many of these people EA themselves prey on and them justifying it by calling it "surprise mechanics" instead of outright gambling always just makes me turn to them as the worst of the worst.

I didn’t expect much from EA’s event honestly. The only things I do care about from EA at this point is if they are ever going to improve career mode in FIFA and how EA Access will work with the new consoles.

In my mind EA earned worst of the worst when they started that whole Online Pass garbage back in 2010 or so. If their games were brought pre-owned and people wanted to play online they had to spend another $10 just for that. Next thing you know others (i.e. Activision, Ubisoft, etc) started doing the same thing. Thankfully people started voting with their wallets and EA along with the others took notice and shut that mess down.

 

I hear you when it comes to Madden and FIFA Ultimate Team (and even MyPlayer and MyTeam in 2K). No way am I spending real money and gambling in the hopes off getting the players and and cosmetic items just to advance in those modes. Some folks playing might be compulsive gamblers/spenders burning thousands in real money on virtual items. Predatory microtransactions in games in general these days is way beyond out of control.

do you think there's a microtransaction forum where they talk about people that spend thousands on games & DLC they'll never touch. Maybe they're confused when they buy the same sports game every year but see other people buy 7 copies of RE4 and Skyrim.

Interesting how Ubisoft and EA are going into the generation like a whimpering fart. Nothing interesting at all really, even though I'm excited for AC/WD/FC, I know those will all just be reskins of games I already played.

Neither companies with any interesting new IPs.

Right? If I only bought games I played, paying MSRP and microtransactions would honestly be less... I would likely enjoy more gaming to boot. I have no room to talk smack on other people's gaming habits, I am terrible at this.

I was looking at the current sales on True Achievements and found a game that I had never heard of called Block Quest Maker.

Has anyone played this game?  Is it any good?
