Anyone played :xb1: BLACK PARADOX - $3.74 - 75% off.
It's been on my wishlist for a while and this is the cheapest its been on any platform to my knowledge.

I’ve played it on iOS. Fun shmup with similarities to Steredenn but with an 80s vibe. I may actually like it better than Steredenn.

What are some of the highlights currently on sale; less than $30. I've been knocking out games faster than GP releases them since lockdown. Finished Yakuza 0 & 1 and KH1.5 & 2.5 (rotated between them)

Sweet I loved Steredenn so this is right up my alley. Thank you. I will pick this up.

As someone who is in a similar position as you but also able to step back and see it from an outside perspective, this seems kind of silly (and I say this about myself as much or more than about your own comment).  The only real game in the franchise that you have finished is the very first one from a decade ago and you apparently own several others and you're wondering about buying another one?  This game will go on sale 10 more times for this price or better before you will even get to it and it will probably get remastered to Series X, Series Y, or PS6 someday. 

 

All that being said, I've only finished one AC (Black Flag) and own several others and I am still tempted to buy this very same game you are.

  Thanks!  You helped me not see myself as a bad CAG for passing up a sale on a game I want to buy...eventually.

The virtual events start on May 7, with a look at third-party games planned for its new console, called Xbox Series X. In June, the company will highlight the Xbox platform and services, and July’s session is intended to cover games produced by Microsoft’s own 15 game studios, including the next iteration of its biggest franchise, “Halo.” The Redmond, Washington-based company had originally planned to unveil many of the details about the new products next month at the E3 conference, which has been canceled.

Saw this today has me excite!

2 weekly game related rewards all we have to do is login instead of doing dumb crap for them

 

monthly quests still look crappy tho

 

FYI - Nier Automata didn't finish downloading and I was still able to complete the quest.

Anyone played Cardpocalypse? Probably not a deep enough discount for me yet but I can be a sucker for those types of games if done well.

How are your backlogs fairing this year?

 

So far I'm on one of the best completion drives I've ever been on. I've beat 30 Xbox games and 3 PS4 games this year. Out of those I got 100% achievements on 20 of them. I also went back and finished off 100% achievements in 6 games I beat long ago.

 

As for the backlog, with 20+ new Games with Gold, 10 new PS+ games so far, free coronavirus games, and whatever I've bought, my backlog is not shrinking at all....

Grown about 20+ games. I'm not surprised as I've been trying to get through the Forza Motorsport games. Finished FM4 about a month ago and I'm currently working on FM2 which I am about a third of the way through. I still have to get through FM, FM3 and FM6.

Backlog?!?! What is that?

 

Looking at:

 

AC Black Flag for $8 (since I never finished the PC and PS3 copies I have...I love sailing around exploring and pirating)

Arcade Game Series $4 (since pac man champ 2 was free and this will complete the need to never touch that physical copy I have on the shelf)

Backlog has shrink a bit but still 20+ deep.

 

I've cut back on buying games (Nier and the KH Collections are the only games I bought this year I haven't beaten) but Game Pass is growing my backlog.

Not so good wife is not working right now because of covid so the time she would usually be asleep and I would be playing for a couple hours is gone now since she doesn't have to wake up early to be at work. She is a teacher so she probably wont be back to work until the Fall so I'm going to have to start playing games after midnight and suck it up and be tired at work. Also added more games completed my Assassins Creed collection with the sale today, bought The Ezio Collection and Rogue Remastered and the Syndicate season pass.

I played it on iOS for a bit. Well done card battler with a cute story. Been meaning to get back into it.

I’d say maybe it would go to GamePass but it’s on Apple Arcade and not sure if there’s any restrictions on it coming to other subscriptions.

Between my wife being essential and the rest of her free time helping her mom grieve, tore up BL3, danced around a dozen games maybe but nothing fully finished that sticks out. I am finally a lot of stupid fun recently with Moving Out

Rumor is Kinect 3.0 required and no used games.

Backlog is going okay- finished the 2 Playstation games (Spider-Man / God of War) and 1 Xbox game (Jedi: Fallen Order) that I purchased this year. But the Games with Gold options and PS+ offerings have grown my backlog ridiculously

I Kinda feel backlogs don't matter anymore with Game Pass. Did a game we beat on Game Pass ever really exist when we never really owned it?

With that being said, three games beaten every month seems to be my average now and going for complete run through of Nier before I call that game beaten and Yakuza Kiwami 2 is also on the plate. I am still shocked I'm considered an essential employee when I go to work every morning instead of at home without pants gaming my eyes out...

I did just finish the last two achievements in Catan on the 360 after starting it 11 years ago. So I go that going for me, which is nice.

I think my record time between starting a game and completing it is 10 years for Fallout 3...

Bright side about the ranked stuff is that online is completely dead making it easy to boost.

Does anyone want to tell EA they already released a remaster of Burnout Paradise?
