I’ve enjoyed it since day one. Know there were some people that had their loot wiped but I never had the issue. Believe they increased the drop rate for rare loot as a result.

But it’s a fun game. Of course, still on GamePass if you have it.

Ok good to hear, I do have gamepass it was one of those games that I thought I would probably buy to own eventually I had actually planned on pre ordering it until the gamepass announcement. I played the tutorial and enjoyed it but thought I recalled reading about issues on reddit. 

Weird, I usually just drop the kids off at the pool when I go to Hershey Park. You take the whole family there together?

lolololol

 

Hershey Park > Outriders

 

 

Seriously, though, Outriders is fine and fun.  It got a little monotonous to me and I haven't gone back to it, but it was fun - especially for a Game Pass freebie.

Haha you know I have to agree, chocolate is my weakness though. I enjoyed the tutorial, I feel like maybe that was one of the knocks I recall about it and something about snipers one shotting you and being a pain among a few other things.

The real reason to not contact support again is because they likely already have you flagged for excessive complaints, rudeness, and insults. Rewards, like sprinkles, are for good kids that play nice. The amount of whinning you do over $4 can't be healthy. Maybe you should stick to buying and playing games you have fun with, instead of worrying about whether you can get $1.50 for wasting 20 minutes.


D&D Dark Alliance is not good, but not as bad as reviews made it seem. I'm very thankful it's on gamepass tho, I probably would have a more negative opinion if I had paid forty bucks.

Ummm maybe Microsoft should just give what they offer and not make their customers jump through more hoops than animals in a three ringed f***ing circus....

Hey AWP is Outriders a game you can mainline or do you become too under leveled if you skip the side stuff? I’m thinking about playing it but don’t know if I have enough time if I’m going to need to do a whole side missions.

Just got back from taking the family to Hershey Park, what's the word this week? I see a guy selling outriders for $25 is it worth a purchase now or are some of the complaints I've seen on reddit still relevant?


I’ve really enjoyed it playing solo. It’s a bit repetitive but the gameplay is enjoyable enough that it bothers me. I’m only going to finish the story and that’ll be enough for me.

Enemies level with you and basically as you progress you can choose how high a level you want the enemies to be by merely pausing and selecting, the stronger the enemies the more powerful the loot, but if you want to just go on a straight forward story route with the enemies being the same level as you, you can.

I’ve only been doing the main missions. Gets tough occasionally but as bardockkum mentions you can change “tier” level at any time to make it as easy or as difficult as you want at any time.

Completed all the achievements in the Win10 version of the Messenger, including the DLC.  Some of them were pretty tough, taking a lot of tries, but glad that this old fart can still pull off some tricky platforming.

 

Don't see myself finishing the Xbox version before it leaves Game Pass on Wed/Thur, but will be happy to purchase it (discounted) to wrap it up.  My hands need some time to recover.

Such a small sale.  Are they planning on doing another big sale so soon after their E3 sale?  Do they usually do a summer sale around the 4th of July?

Last year's Summer Sale was around mid August so expect it then.

I'm going to have to use a guide for this game. It was fantastic up until it became a 16bit adventure game and the challenge became not falling asleep from wandering aimlessly.

That's what I thought.  This super small sale confused me a bit.  They typically do something like this when they are planning on starting a huge sale at the end of the week.

It almost seems like it's showing the 20% GamePass discount on some games for some reason.

How much of the base game is left after the “big reveal”? I got there and got lost shortly after and put it down, but wondering if I have time to actually finish it before it leaves.

That $16 drop in price for Jeopardy PlayShow hurts. I bought it for my dad as a gift for Father's Day but because I gifted it as a code, it's ineligible for a refund. I would have used the difference to get him some of the DLCs. :wall:

I Didn't see it in the trailer, but don't worry guys I tested to make sure and yes, rest easy, the Stadia Controller works with XCloud so long as its connected via USB.

Thanks. Was just talking to my gf about watching The Birds and lamenting it wasn't on any streaming platform so that was a happy coincidence. Good collection btw. :bouncy:

I got 100% achievement in Maneater. I had to start another game because the Golden Shores Apex predator didn't pop on my original playthrough but it was the only one that glitched. Took like an hour or 2 to get back to that part in the game which I didn't mind because it's fun and I enjoyed it. Achievement popped and so I have all of them now. The game froze on me like 5 times and that stomach camera glitch is still there but the game never locked up my console and besides the glitches and lackluster ending/final boss, the game was actually better than I expected. I would have liked to have seen more Shark species.

I just finished the main story of Maneater today (I'm at about 98% completion) and I agree that it was really fun besides the bugs and the lackluster ending. Definitely a game with sequel potential which I hope the upcoming expansion taps into.
I actually didn't have any bugs EXCEPT the tiger evolution DLC I have installed refuses to show up in game. I tweeted them about it, fingers crossed the expansion comes with a plethora of bug fixes.

I don’t think any game has consistently managed to disappoint and piss me off more than Sea of Thieves. Was so psyched when it was announced … and then it came out and was boring and empty. Finally they add Pirates of the Caribbean content … awesome, looks beautiful … aaaand the gameplay loop is still dull. Plus when you log off, you lose all your treasure, and your ship customizations reset … and it’s still massively empty and terrible for single players. Goodbye Sea of Thieves … this time I’m sending you to a watery grave for good.

I wish they had a better single player experience for Sea of Thieves. I haven’t been able to get into it but was thinking of downloading to try the Pirates of the Caribbean crossover.

It’s massively popular though so there is audience for it. #1 on Steam this week.

I got all the achievements except for the final conversation achievement (I missed it and don't want to play through again to get it) and the DLC perfect race one (the 5th race can eat my ass).

 

Great game.  The rare retro indie game that improves on almost everything that it was inspired by instead of being a cheap imitation.
