I kinda want to check out Humankind Odyssey and monkey around, but not sure if $20 is low enough. Wish there was a demo. I’ll check out more videos, I just saw it has an update to make it better.

FYI amazon has Monster Hunter Iceborne Edition for $20. Comes with both base game and expansion on disc + steelbook. Instabuy for me. Cheapest I've seen Iceborne is $30 digital. Best deal ever if you don't have the base game.

Any thoughts on the Van Helsing trilogy in the sale?

Have played the first two. The 2nd one is quite a bit better, 1st one like a stepping stone. In 1 the combat is kinda repetitive and ranged >>>>> melee. The 2nd one improves everything, is longer, and each class is so different it warrants a separate playthrough. I like it cause gear matters unlike a lot of ARPGs. A lot of it is dmg mitigation & health steal weighed against damage. I love the math involved. If you play through the 1st before 2nd you'll like it, just maybe don't beat it 3 times like I did for the achievement or it'll get tiresome.

Good find, thanks.  It's the steelbook deluxe edition too.  I was waiting for the base game + expansion to drop on pc but I'm going to give it a try on console since I have Gold Ultimate anyway.

Greedfall is good fun so far. Deep combat system.

But I have to get back to RE 3 from my $1 GameFly month.

If you were going to pick one between Gone, Edith, and Esther - which and why? I have heard of these and remember looking a Gone Home (iirc) a while back...my impression is that these seem "gloomy" and I gravitate to a lighter, more colorful, experience.

I think my days of zombies, gore, gloom, combat sims, etc. have expired; but if I do get that itch, I am more likely scratch it with some nostalgia these days...


Dear Esther is slow, boring, pretentious, and has an intentionally indirect and open ended story. I do not recommend this game at all.

Gone Home was interesting. It’s also kind of slow, though not as painfully slow as Dear Esther. I feel like to get the most of it you need to hit most of not all the story points, which may or may not require following a guide. In the end I was glad to have played it but also very glad I got it for free via live/plus. I’d say it’s worth a few bucks to experience.

What Remains of Edith Finch was by far the best walking simulator I’ve played so far. It’s imaginative and creative. It has set piece moments for each story piece that are all very different from each other. And the story ends in a way that I actually didn’t see coming

now as a rapidly aging man I'm going to clean up 15 video game zoo animal terds for points equivalent to a couple cents

Mafia III was never GWG. Mafia II on the 360 was and that's about it.

Opinions on Overwatch? I'm having a multiplayer itch since I haven't played online in years. I was also thinking about Call of Duty Modern Warfare, but Overwatch is on sale this week

This. I saw the quest and LOLed literally cause I am going to redownload that Zoo Tycoon game just to relive the crappy days of cleaning up poop.

Agree with others regarding What remains of Edith Finch. One of my fav walking sims. Same with Gone Home. Dear Esther? I'd rather clean up horse poop again than even think of that massive turd. One of my most disliked of the "walking sim" games(Lifeless Planet though from a 3rd person view, is still a walking sim. What a boring game that was)....I think Firewatch would be great for you JRC since it's set in a wildlife park and is very colorful, vibrant. Sometimes I'd stop playing the game to take in the view of a mountain I just climbed. I really enjoyed that one. Right up there with Gone Home and Edith Finch IMO

I got into overwatch a year or two after release and really like it. They've been releasing at least a couple heroes and maps a year but that may be slowing down since 2 has been announced. It may be a couple years out though and all progress will carry over and they'll be cross play, so it shouldn't be a deterrent from getting 1. They have 6 seasonal events throughout the year that have unique game modes that can't usually be played outside the event and they add new cosmetics and occasionally achievements. Some people that play can be toxic (I've had worse experiences in other games though) but like most multiplayer games on Xbox most people don't use a mic so it isn't that common. It still has a decent player base. 2 of each role (support, tank, damage) is required for most game modes and most people play damage so if that's what you usually play the wait time can be 3+ times as long as the other roles. The gameplay and style isn't for everyone though, it's too bad it doesn't have a trial. 

 

I also really like modern warfare. I haven't played the campaign yet but multiplayer and warzone are fun. If you want something more realistic and not a hero shooter I'd go with MW. Plus if you want a pseudo trial or be an extra CAG you can just play warzone for free if you aren't already.

 

Sorry for all the text, let me know if you have questions about either.

Thank you. I just have a couple questions:

1. Do you have to pay for any of the content that's added, or is this legendary edition the only thing I have to pay for?

2. How many game modes and maps are there?

Thanks again for the response

I remember when preowned copies of Mafia III kept showing up in GameStop's buy 4 games for $20 sales before the pandemic.  Because of that, I already own the PS4 and Xbox One discs already, so it's just a matter of installing. 

 

Thank God that I had been hoarding games before the COVID-19 happened.  Like a squirrel storing nuts for a viral winter.

Thanks again for the response

1. All maps and heroes are free after the initial purchase. The only paid content is loot boxes but they can be earned for free a lot easier than most games I've played with loot boxes. There are a few different ways to earn them but the most consistent is each time you level up you get one. The loot boxes only have cosmetics. There are so many cosmetics though that if you want a specific one it may be hard to get based on luck. You can earn gold by playing a specific role some times and in loot boxes. You can use the gold to purchase a specific cosmetic. You can't pay for gold. The 6 seasonal events have their own special cosmetics that are only available during their event (events usually last 3 weeks).

 

 

This one may be a bit confusing and I may have described it poorly. I believe donken and six min whistle have also played a lot in the past so they may have more better described info.

 

2. There are 3 different gameplay types: quick play, competitive (ranked) and arcade. The first 2 types have the same 4 game modes on 21 maps. Not all the maps are available for each game mode so you'll see the same 5 or so maps each time you play a specific game mode. 3 of the game modes have attackers/defenders trying to capture objectives and/or escort an objective that moves across the map, the fourth mode is 2 teams fighting over control of one point. Arcade has 7 different modes and half of them change daily to something different. They can look similar to the standard gameplay or be something like free for all or team elimination where death is permanent each round.

Don’t worry. I bought Greedfall tonight to ensure it goes to GamePass for the rest of y’all.

Someone needs to sacrifice themselves and buy Book of Demons though. The blood of those demons must... MUST ...be spilled at the feet of the GamePass Gods.

let us know what you think about it after you play awhile.

What?!?! You expect me to play the games I buy?!?

How dare you!

No, I played for bit and like it so far. Lots of customization and deep combat.

Only reason I won’t be playing more right now is that I have the RE 3 remake from a GameFly $1 month. I need to prioritize it so I get it done it time.

Damn work and wives. Not enough time for games!
