I had Videogame911 fix a broken PS3 recently and I was very happy with their service, communication, and turn around time. They offer a lot of repairs for many systems, including Xbox HDMI repairs.


What kind of ps3 repair did you have them do? Did you have a limited edition system or backwards compatible one that made it worth repairing?

I've got a gun metal gray Metal Gear system with YLOD and no matter how cool it looked when I first got it I'm not sure I can justify dropping that kind of cash on repairs. Part of the issue is I still have 3 other working ps3s sitting around so repairs seem less crucial when hoarding can bypass the need.

Yep, hardly buying games anymore, which is fine with me, the only two I bought recently were Immortals and AC Valhalla after they came on big sale, because those will probably never be on GP. 

same way..only thing i am debating on buying is ME Legendary Edition and i might pass

So far I have tried to start the game about 15 times, so looks like I'm winning this contest, if it's even one at this point. I may already won it...

What kind of ps3 repair did you have them do? Did you have a limited edition system or backwards compatible one that made it worth repairing?

I've got a gun metal gray Metal Gear system with YLOD and no matter how cool it looked when I first got it I'm not sure I can justify dropping that kind of cash on repairs. Part of the issue is I still have 3 other working ps3s sitting around so repairs seem less crucial when hoarding can bypass the need.


It is backwards compatible. It wasn't reading DVDs/PS2 games and they had to replace the laser assembly/adjust laser and they cleaned the internals. If I had the YLOD I would try to see if they could work their magic on it.

Probably old news but figured out that if you press the Xbox home button while you are playing a game, it will list the features it has (auto HDR, FPS Boost, Quick Resume). Pretty nice especially to know if a game has quick resume.

Has the feature rolled out to see what games are currently in quick resume state? I’m in Alpha ring and haven’t noticed it or don’t know how to use it if it’s there.


Audio Passthrough also gets a call out when in use. Look at your groups, there's a new one there for Quick Resume.

Why is the ezio collection always $11.99? I need it to be 9.99 or less so I can add it to the backlog and never play it.

That's a pretty tempting price on Mega Man 9 & 10.  To the MM experts out there, are they worth playing?

The winners are Bryson and ToddManG.  Congrats!  I'll be sending a PM requesting which game you want.

If anyone was doubting if Bloomy was a man of his word, I did indeed receive a PM from Bloomy for the giveaway. I decided to throw him a curveball and he hit a homerun! I'm not much into horror games and I already played the ME series so I asked him if instead I could have... Biomutant and he agreed! So if Biomutant launches day 1 on gamepass you can all thank Bloomy for his sacrifice. :bouncy: :D/ :applause: 

 

Thanks again Bloomy for all the work you do here. We love you even without the giveaway!

As another of Dr. Light's creations (I think) I can safely say they are quality titles.

Talking about console repairs reminds me I have a modded 360 that's dead as a door nail, it just won't turn on anymore. Not sure how to go about getting it repaired, doubt any shop would touch it.

 

 

I almost bought The Sinking City – Necronomicon Edition, until I remembered there is an optimized version that is way more expensive. I'll wait. Guess the girlfriend gets to round out her Sims 4 DLC. Those last three packs she needs have never been 50% off, unlike the rest. Give her an excuse to play with the quick resume feature, it is such a life changer for that game.

Probably old news but figured out that if you press the Xbox home button while you are playing a game, it will list the features it has (auto HDR, FPS Boost, Quick Resume). Pretty nice especially to know if a game has quick resume.

Has the feature rolled out to see what games are currently in quick resume state? I’m in Alpha ring and haven’t noticed it or don’t know how to use it if it’s there.

 

 

Audio Passthrough also gets a call out when in use. Look at your groups, there's a new one there for Quick Resume.

Not really the same thing, as this stuff is intentional but thought I'd point out hitting the Xbox Guide button has also been fixing my issue where for whatever reason Call of Duty Black Ops 120fps option goes "disabled" instead of "enabled". Basically it's not running in 120fps mode go out to main menu hit the guide button and close it again, go back into settings now 120fps is enabled again. I'm sure just a quirk but could be triggering something.

Anyone know if the first Torchlight ever goes on sale; I couldn't find any sale history on xbdeals. I never finished it on PC years ago.

 

Does it really even matter if these are played in any kind of order - which is best if I'll likely only get through one of them anytime soon?

That's who I had in mind when I wrote the message. ;)

This is endorsement enough for me, thanks!


Pardon my tardiness!

It sounds like you already got your answer, but yes, they are both wonderful games, Mega Man 9 is one of the best in the original style series.

I would recommend the Legacy Collection 2 over the 360 versions since it includes all the DLC and some minor quality of life improvements, like checkpoints for saving. The original 360 releases don't have them, and so they are a little bit more challenging.

If you don't have a lot of experience with the series, MM9 can feel a little too punishing, but I think that game is perfect. The soundtrack is also killer.

It used to go on sale for $5 pretty regularly, yes. This was YEARS ago. No it does not matter if played in order at ALL. The 2nd one is definitely the best. People will be quick to point out that the PC version of TL2 with mods is the best experience, which it is, but I still feel the whole series is very enjoyable, yes even on console. Then again, I love me some ARPG Diablo-clones. But I really feel this series is one of the best alternatives in the genre.

10,000 POINTS achievement challenge is up for May.


And I just wanna voice my frustration in downloading files on Xbox One.

 

I have a queue of 65 items and it's frustrating as hell. Sometimes "Pause All" doesn't work. Sometimes I want to download a specific game in the queue and it starts downloading for 10 seconds and then moves on to another file.

Thanks again for the chance and a little late but congratulations to the winners.

Man, either that weekly sale went by lightning-fast or they didn't mean to put up Watch Dogs 2 Deluxe at that price, because it's back to $60.

 

I also wish Evoland: Legendary Edition went on sale more often. I missed it when it went up for sale in October and it hadn't been on sale since April of last year.

Your portable gaming PC. $900.

I think I'm going to spend the $3 for Titanfall 2 Ultimate. Both to support the wave of enthusiasm for the game and for those unlocks.

I would recommend both Torchlight 1 and 2, but play them in order more to enjoy the improvements. 2 with Steam Workshop is best, yes, and I would recommend 2 if you have time for only one.

Do I value human interaction with friends and family that I haven't seen in over a year or $10? Hmm, decisions...

 

And yup, as much as we praise XBox for their quality of life updates, their update/download system is legit ass. Waiting for minutes to see what games need updates if you don't have auto update turned on is the worse. Like these all feel like things that should've been ironed out years ago, but here we are still.

Their update system isn't ass because it's fucking non existent. Legit never auto updates no matter what. Nothing like being excited about playing a game and getting notified that it needs a 34 GB update even though you have auto update on. I guess I'll watch something on Netflix then. Ugh.

I downloaded one of those updates and it seems like a week later there was ANOTHER huge update. I just uninstalled MCC so I do not have to see that ever.

Auto update flat out does not work at all. The games with updates works with some games. I have loaded that up seeing if there was a FH4 update and it says no updates available only to start up FH4 and have it close to update.

it's awesome when you have relatively slow net like me and you leave it going overnight to download whatever large game is needed for weekly quests and such and when you check in the morning it jumped all around and downloaded the wrong stuff and the large game is sitting there untouched
