The way that you let them know the practice sucks is don't buy the game. Money is all they care about. They know gamers are going to nitpick and complain no matter what and then still buy the game anyways.

 

Your point is basically: "Don't buy the game if you don't like it, but don't express why"

Honestly, the first week was really tough, calling friends and family, coming to terms with the thyroid cancer diagnosis. Even during last week I was still sleepless and worrying if it was lung or throat cancer. But my chest x-rays came back clear and healthy so that makes me feel like I got a little win this week (especially since I used to smoke). It might seem weird, but telling people and talking about it makes it easier to deal with. I do feel a little numb and emotionally spent this week, but I'm trying to focus on how many success stories I have heard for thyroid cancer. I know the survival rate is very high, it's just the life changes I need to prepare for. I turn 40 on August 25th and it's going to be a very different birthday. I have to do extra social distancing now so I don't get sick and have to cancel the surgery. I go in on the 26th to do a Covid test and prepare. As I get closer to the surgery date I might start freaking out... I will say I've teared up with everyone that's reached out to me and when I read messages of support. Thank you for that


Best of luck through it all friend. Please keep us up to date on everything. I’m sure we are pulling for you here.

Any one know if they ever fixed Bioshock collection on the One X or am I better off playing that on my VCR One?

I’m not sure if they patched it but playing offline fixed it for me when I played. If you’re fine with playing offline it looks much better with the One X patch

For the Doom Eternal freebies, are they in game or will there be a claim mechanic somewhere? I know they've done both before. I haven't bought it since my reactions still aren't as good.

Also, I see Rakuten is shutting down their store front (formely Buy.com) next month, which was my primary source for discounted Xbox credit.  I'll switch to Raise now that I see you can use PayPal through their app (I never saw an option for PP on their website).

Well, that sucks, that was my source too. Only source actually. Ugh.

Is this the Wolverine vs Deadpool battle everyone is clamoring for???

Color me underwhelmed...


By me agreeing and adding my own 2¢ from experience? I'd be underwhelmed too trying to make nonsense out of nothing

Raise can have some pretty great deals sometimes. Once I got some Nintendo credit for 18% off.

Microsoft buying TikTok after shutting down Mixer is just super confusing.

And I'm hoping that TikTok won't somehow be linked to Microsoft Rewards because I try to stay far away from anything idiotic that millennials like to do.  :oldman:  :pray:  :shame:

Right!?!? I was on Facebook in college when it started and required a .edu email. Now I have to Google...er bing...half the crap that gets discussed on here. Millennials are not the cool trendy kids anymore, so you can stop blaming us.

I know this is the Xbox thread but has anyone here had trouble getting into the Avengers beta? You have to sign up with Square to even get a code, the better you put the code in on PS4 you can’t proceed without verifying your email and they’ve never sent an email to verify. I’ve requested multiple times since last night and nothing....

Considering picking up Doom Slayers Edition @ $13 and maybe grab Doom 64 too. I probably won't play them anytime soon so grab now vs wait for a deeper discount...never really played doom even though I grew up on dos pc shooters. I own an unopened physical copy of 2016, really don't even need that one...

I'd rather be included in the zoomer generation than either the generation known for its discrimination against LGBT and other minorities and the millennials that used to make fun of us all for being nerds but now raise their kids on superheroes and video games. Seems like a generation that's more inclusive and less tolerant of being assholes, even if they do eat tide pods and vlog their entire day.

Back in my day it was Generation Y.

A friend of mine (who is also middle aged) keeps insisting that we are millennials. I keep telling him to stop pretending he’s still young

Gen Y/Mills would be late 20's to late 30's. Gen X is 40+. Not that any of it matters. We're all terrible people trying to tell other people what to do.

I'm with you, brother. Damn kids and their hula hoops are ruining this country. Back in my day all we did for fun was fake our DoB to sign up for military service early! /sarcasm

If zoomers get credit for nothing else, bringing toast, eggs over easy, and avocados together is surely worth the title of greatest generation. Oh, you fought in WWII and survived the great depression? Well suck on it Grandpa, now we got toast with so much cholesterol we won't survive to get old enough to hate the next generation. I don't know where I'm going with this, I genuinely love avocado toast.


I keep thinking I can do the "we have x at home" meme with this Spiderman Avengers thing, but I'm too tired to make it work.


Rakuten shutting down means I have to start pestering anyone that's posted xbl currency in the trade thread in the last six months if they still have any. Prepare your inbox for bad jokes and requests for steeply discounted codes.
