I was fine doing bing rewards for free gold every month, but decided screw it just two days ago and bought 3 years of live at 25 bucks a piece(cdkeys). Plan was to convert all 3 years to Ultimate Game pass for first time. Then bam this happens. Hopefully it still ends up being worth it but jeeze. Timing of piss.

Just realized that Netflix didn’t require me to sign in this time. Is this a glitch or has it changed?

For a short period of time 2 days ago, cdkeys reduced their 12 month gold brazil codes to 24.79. (Just use a vpn when reedeming them.) They're back up to $30 now.

Not counting pc most other devices (phone, xbox, smart tv, etc) remember your login so they auto-log you back in.

Sometimes when the app gets updated you'll have to log in the 1st time then it will go back to remembering you.

That's very weird. Ive only had to sign in if there is a major update and then the app on my phone prompts me. Otherwise I never have to sign in.

I'm at level 32. I went to the black Gorge and built an extractor and stood there for 5 minutes and it didn't produce any black Titanium Ore. Yeah I am just collecting a bunch of toy cars and other stuff that has the parts I need in it. I haven't messed with any deathclaws yet but will probably go the Miner route. I have not done any search in my Pipboy. I'm more just exploring and collecting the stuff on the side.

I did manage to see the Mothman before I even went to Point Pleasant. I got one shot on him before he flew away. I explored Point Pleasant and the Mothman Museum but only found some eggs, lots of medical stuff and a bunch of enemies.

Extractors require power to produce resources. On the Junk tab of the pipboy, pressing RB will display all the types of scrap that junk items can be broken down to even if you don't have any junk on you at the moment. You can then select the types of scrap you are looking for, so when you encounter a piece of junk with one of the scrap you selected, a magnifying glass will be next to it letting you know you want to pick it up. Saves you from having to figure out if something has useful scrap or useless scrap.

 

There is a type of Mothman (and Flatwoods Monster) that will always run away from you. I wish they wouldn't, they've got some decent junk on them. In the basement of the museum is where they held rituals, you can find the Ritual Mask and Outfit there. I actually haven't been down there since they changed Point Pleasant, it required picking a level 2 lock in the bathroom before. Not sure if they changed that or not, just been there long enough to collect the eggs to make Brain Bombs to significantly boost my Intelligence so I can level faster.

Oh yeah duh now I remember. I did build a generator but it was a small one and it required more power and I didn't have the materials to make one so I just scrapped both and left. It looks like the minor drop a lot of stuff I need for the suit so I'll just find a good place with minors and get most of what I need from them.

I was expecting more from Point Pleasant but it was still a cool little place to visit.

SSD prices are going back down, but if you're going next gen this year I wouldn't get one because I don't think you can play next gen games off them, only store them.

 

960GB SSD - $78 at Newegg

You can’t play Series X games off of them, you can play BC games.

You didn't have enough resources to make more generators? Did you build a lot of other things? It depends on the workshop but I can usually build at least six medium generators before it uses my own resources. When you build at a workshop, the workshop has some junk you can use before it uses your own junk. If the junk required is green, that means the workshop has enough, if it is white, it does not and will use yours. I honestly don't know what it looks like when you don't have enough, I've got so much junk I'll never run out. I'm not positive but I think it produces ore not scrap, so you would need to smelt it at the chemistry station with acid. There are lots of Mole Miners at several places in the Ash Heap, and they won't be too high level. There are always level 40 glowing ones at Blackwater Mine right next to Whitesprings, if the Uranium Fever event is running you can get several dozen to spawn.

I would be very surprised if there is only a $50 difference between the PS5 and PS5 digital. I know the future is digital but having the option for 4K blu-ray or buying a disk seems worth the $50. It seems like the digital version is there to take the criticism away from a $500+ system (if that is the actual case).

The digital version of the PS5 at that price compared to the standard just seems ridiculous. If that’s going to be the price, either there are going to be a lot unsold units or people buying it just because they can’t find the standard. The prices for the PS4s look overpriced to me.

What if the digital version costs more, because it has a much larger harddrive? The Standard PS5 is said to only have an 825gb harddrive. So, if the digital version has a 1.5gb or a 2gb harddrive. I would expect it to cost way more than the disc version.

Not sure why people would be surprised at only a $50 difference between the PS5 and the PS5 digital. Blu ray drives don't cost that much in bulk. The price difference between the regular Xbox One S and the Xbox One S all digital was sadly only about $50. The way the PS5 is setup to use it's SSD it can't really change the actual storage size to make a lower cost one with a lower capacity SSD.

It has the same hard drive size. If it was going to have something larger, they would have said so when they showed the consoles. So the SX should be $50 less than PS5, maybe $100 if they decide to really undercut them.

Exactly. Who? Sorry Tyrok, doesn't sound right to me. The New York pizza rat probably has better "predictions". Don't follow the bait of that horrible "prediction".

I don't think it is a matter of the actual $50 for the drive. That is where I think it works against Sony at that price point. If you are willing to spend $500 on a system then $550 for the drive seems like not a big leap as it is about 10% more. The Xbox One S digital was $250 vs $300. That is a 20% bump. On top of that you are looking to get someone in as low as possible with the S digital and get them hooked on GamePass. $500 with no drive would seem like a huge stretch for me. But again all of this is speculation on pricing and is only my personal take on it.

I am probably just talking out my ass here, but wasn't MS pushing that payment plan with GP bundle through Amazon just pre-COVID and inventory went nuts? Maybe the point of an All Digital version was geared more toward a subscription bundled hardware option to hit the $19.99/mo price point and not so much the up-front cost difference? I am relatively new to the XB1 scene, so my observation window is narrow on this...just seems like that monthly sub is where MS is pushing hard.

I Played more Ooblets than I anticipated this weekend. Also I'm grateful I picked up Forza Horizon: Fast and Furious when it was free to help maintain my daily achievements while I perform fetch quests and other tasks in Ooblets.

I wasted a good portion of this weekend playing Forager.  What a great game and another gem on game pass.

This person predicts Microsoft will undercut Sony at every sku level??  Sorry, I don't think that is happening.  I believe Sony and Microsoft will match at the top end as well as last gen hardware and Microsoft will undercut the PS5 digital version with the Series S.

 

PS5 / Series X $499

PS5 Digital $399

Series S $299

PS4 / One S $199

 

I think Sony discontinues the Pro just like Microsoft is doing to the One X.

The new fancy hard drives ensure that the digital version won't be any larger due to the cost. They'll rely on selling upgraded HDDs and, at least for MS, 'smart delivery' features to only install the parts you want (SP vs MP, individual campaigns like in MCC) to minimize the storage footprints. 

 

I hear enough people comment that they own so few disc based games this gen (myself included) that I think the market is finally ready for an all-digital console, but I agree that having all-options-available is preferable. I now own quite a few 4k movies on disc, but I'm so used to digital games not needing discs that it's annoying to have to swap them out.

I spent this weekend mopping up the last few Triumphs to unlock the Shadow title in D2, a very productive weekend!

I've been on an all-digital kick for a WHILE, but I couldn't pass up the $100 BL3 for $30 at Amazon...that and the few dozen games I still have on disc mean I'm locked in enough to not be able to go sans optical.
