Wow this is awesome. Thanks for this. Protip= use google chrome incognito on iPhone moving the . in your email each time and you can get more than 5. (I didn’t go completely crazy so others can get some )

You can also use multiple .'s in your email to create more variations for Gmail.  I wrote a program a while back for a Skylanders Frito Lay contest for my son that would break my email down into every combination using one or more periods and prefill the form (I only had to do the CAPTCHA by hand), then you could enter once per day per variation.  I won like 16 times in a couple days then stopped.  Not quite Lazlo from Real Genius levels of winning, but still not bad.

Dang guess I got to get through Metro Exodus and Steam World Dig 2

My thoughts exactly, I've been staring at them both for months. Supposedly Metro can be finished in ~14 hours (campaign that is). An hour a day for the rest of the month sounds doable.

 

Steamworld Dig 2 is more likely to hit a low pricepoint sooner so I'll just buy it when it's on sale since I loved the original.

You guys, my skin is getting hella white from this pandemic shit that I legit expect to look like a Twilight vampire by the time they get a vaccine.

 

And random gaming thoughts. Yakuza 3 HD'er is fucking rough. It's odd going from 0 to both Kiwami games to that simply because it's ahead and moves the story of those three games, but gameplay is so dated compared to those three games since old engine and all. Also since beating Nier I decided to pick up and try and go through the GTA5 campaign again, months of playing Forza Horizon then going to GTA's driving is a bad idea because I keep expecting to drift into a turn and instead just take a dumb hard turn. And I do not like having to carefully look for health pick ups, the ways of health pick ups being glowy orbs or having items on standby to heal me or hiding behind a rock has spoiled me.

Well if you go the PC route good news for you. This is actually sounding a little more in depth than just a spin off of the Battlefront dogfight stuff.

That sounds promising. I can’t imagine them being able to make essentially a new TIE or X-Wing game that’s cross platform but the closer the better.

If anyone missed the Deals Unlocked sale for the digital versions, the physical versions are still showing for the sale prices on GS, BB & Amazon.   They must be ending their sales the same day as PS4's Days of Play or something.

 

Plus Forza Horizon 4 & Halo 5 are part of Amazon's 3 for 2 sale too.

Ended up picking up Man Eater for $28 from Amazon. Only a little over 25% off but not bad for a newer physical game that won't go into the backlog. 

 

I'm also installing life is strange 2 because of the comments saying it is only loosely tied to the other two games. Figure I'll take care of that before it's gone. I wish when you hit "update now" in the queue that it actually started the update rather than putting it directly behind what is currently updating in the queue and then having to pause the current update to start the new one.

I am also completing LIS Season 2. I left off on chapter 3 months ago and now that it's leaving, I finished 3 and am onto 4 now.

 

I have the MCC update just sitting there. That game already takes up too much space and I don't play multiplayer so I don't need to update it. I might just delete it since I've already beaten Halo 1-4 and ODST. I do need to play Reach though so maybe I'll delete it after I beat Reach. I wish M$ would take a page out of Nintendo's book and learn how make file sizes smaller. Oh well.

I also find that odd because they add so many new games all of the time. Though, it could be Covid 19 related. They are probably going to be on autopilot for the foreseeable future with these quests. But, at least we have a good idea of what GamePass games to keep installed.

The Division 2 got an update on Xbox One this morning. And, while I have no idea what it did. It was mercifully only 6gb in size, instead of trying to redownload the entire game and all of the DLC like it usually does.

M$? Are you 12? And comparing Switch games to Xbox One games when it comes to file size is laughable and ignorant.

Since Life is Strange 2 is leaving game pass end of the month, finally playing The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. I figure 2 hrs with this one, then 13 with LiS2. I have the time since the little one is gone for a week visiting family. Got extra sleep last night, time to game a little extra the next few evenings.

Nothing too great on discount this week. Hyped for the Sea of Thieves update that'll be dropping early morn tomorrow

I liked the original Life is Strange more than LIS2, but LIS2 is pretty damn on topic right now.

 

Looks like I need to play Metro Exodus now.  I had just started playing Metal Slug X.  I hope they add more ACA games to game pass.

Good to know thanks.

Why are you so offended with M$? It's an easy way to abbreviate. I've noticed you are a very sensitive poster. Lighten up. Enjoy life person.

 

I've spoken with some devs at E3 and CES. Some I remember by name were the Rockband and MLB The Show devs but I've spoken mainly with devs from MLB The Show. They all told me that their game sizes are so big because there isn't any reason for them not to be. 2 devs told me it's time consuming and difficult to compress files without losing quality. I asked him how Nintendo is able to do it and one told me they are working on another level and one told me they are at the top of their field. I remember an MLB The Show dev telling me, "we have 50 GB to work with on blu ray disc and we are going to use up as much of that disc as we can." I also asked him about load times being shorter and he told me that it's not a high priority but sure, they can make them faster if it was absolutely necessary. Now, that was 3 years ago as they stopped going to CES but my point is, Nintendo just cares more about that stuff or they are just more talented than any of the other devs. Have you also been going to CES and E3 for years and you've spoken directly with devs? If so, what did they tell you since you called me ignorant on the subject?

 

Devs out there CAN make their games smaller, they just decide not to. Look at how CD Project Red was able to fit The Witcher 3 with both DLCs on 32 GB cart. Yes, it doesn't look as good but it just proves that it's possible. I know the MCC and Xbox One games use 1080p or 4K textures but that doesn't mean the game needs to be as big as 175GB like the new Call of Duty. 175GB could have been smaller if the devs wanted it to be.

 

Again though, you seem to be a very sensitive poster so whatever is going on in your life, I hope it gets better soon.

I recommend playing LIS2 episode 1, and then Captain Spirit, and then finishing LIS2, but it could work either way I guess.

I'm testing out a few Microsoft-published games that are on Game Pass to decide if I want to spend $5 on them as a part of the current sale since they might disappear from Game Pass at some point.

I've been trying to play Ori and the Blind Forest this evening, but the prologue is tedious as hell. Can anyone explain why this game is so beloved by the gaming public? The art and the animation are nice, but I'm already bored. The last time that I had that feeling was when I played Old Man's Journey. Also, does Ori and the Blind Forest have any replay value?


I've been playing Ori and agree it takes a bit of effort to muscle through the start but after getting some powerups and combos it has gotten very addictive and it becomes fast and tight. I have a tendency to buy platformer type games and then remember I hate platformer type games and quit. This one is better, at least for me.

Thanks, I've read that suggestion too. Just knocked out Captain Spirit & the ending left me with a knot in my stomach and welling up. Curse you video games, pulling at my heart strings!!!

Delving into LiS2 right now with a guide for strictly the collectibles. I like getting achievements, but don't have the time nor patience to hunt down every single one on my own

Best Buy also has it for $10...
