Still enjoying classic Doom games a lot, they are like the Mario NES games in that their core design is so good that they are just as good as they were ~30 years ago, minus the fact that in 1993 they were cutting-edge technology and had a wow factor. 

 

Hey so uhh yeah friendly FYI to my fellow CAG peeps out there. Yakuza 0 does not have an auto save function. Yeah. Good stuff. Great to find out after doing the aforementioned ~2 hours worth of cutscene heavy intro. Loving it. So, yeah, check the save function. Not sure where it is. Gonna go cry myself to sleep. Be good, everyone.

This gave me Mass Effect 1 flashbacks.

Separate post for this:

 

 

Compared to launch price, this is insane, considering only 1 piece of season pass content has been released. I paid $68 and thought it was a great deal back in Sept or October.

Tempted but with my backlog I'll wait for the eventual Borderlands 3 Complete Edition for $20. 

 

It's $41.93 on Amazon from Toys and Video Games Store fulfilled by Amazon if you want to go that route.

 

$44.99 from BestBuy only the X1 version

I like how Ark's "ready to start" does nothing but get to the menu screen for 60+ gigs

 

this is rapidly becoming hall of fame for the dumbest shit I've done for hardly any points but I'm sure I'll top it next week/month

Thats $10 cheaper than buying the season pass alone.  Tempting even though i have the base game already.

I skipped the Ark quest.  I can get 75 points by doing 15 image searches in 20 seconds, no need to go through all that hassle.

 

Note: Newegg is selling Borderlands 3 SDE for that price on eBay also so you can buy it there and get the eBay Bucks as well.

BUT it's those points PLUS those 75 points for Ark AND it's not Payday 2.

 

Also side note, Ark is the longest I've ever spent time wise for a Reward quest and I haven't even played the dumb game. Though I will say the game loading screen from the dashboard to the game is one of the most bad ass looking toy commercial looking pictures ever.

Have to laugh at some of your dedication to doing quests. Probably could earn more in less time with a second job! :)

Us points whores have to feel silly about 98% of the time

 

but when we cash out a couple hundred thousand points annually we get a few glorious days of fully enjoying our dumbassery

 

I haven't paid outta pocket for live or ultimate or games for years and years so in the end that part is cool

Here's the ultimate CAG question. I have bought Doom I and Doom II classic this week. The likelihood of me playing both is less than 20%. I bought it because the price is right. Why is Doom III worth almost double the price of the other two dooms and should I get it or wait til the price is under $2 lol

Personally I waste way more time browsing deal sites and talking about games vs time spent playing them compared to any of this rewards stuff.

You can trade the disc after you redeem the codes.   I bought the Super Deluxe version on PS4 at launch.  It had $10 back in BB points and I still had GCU.  No regrets.  Played this morning.

 

Probably some content announcements / road map at 2:30 Eastern today.

 

Some people like me had issues with it on their XBox One X though.  It completely shutsdown my previous X when I try to join someone elses game.  Haven't tried it on my new X.

Yeah I'm skipping the Ark and Overcooked weekly quests - I already finished up my 15 weekly quests this month for the 1000 points.

So can you get all the achievements in ARK with just the base game from Game Pass and the console commands?

Yep, Wife and I had so many problems with this game on our X1X's during the free play weekend. Hopefully they have fixed the issue by now.

You can even do it from the Xcloud beta on Android and not download anything...

I'm really late to the party on this mainly because my internet has been JACKED UP the last month so I've missed a lot (and it's hard to search on mobile), will I incur any achievements doing the Overcooked 2 Weekly Quest for finishing two recipes? I really need the points for the monthly quest but do not want an incompletable 1k on my tag.

From my experience the weekly quest popped before the achievement. What will be important is that you quit out and not continue the tutorial level as finishing it will give you an achievement

Ok admittedly I'm dumb but I tried to play Ark last night and could never figure out how to get the console command line to show...is there specific worlds you have to choose first?

That and why is the screen so oversized on this game?

I’m going to mostly assume you know what Doom I & II are like. But the short of it is they are early 90s pc games that are fast paced, super fun, and sort of but not really 3d. They are also very similar to each other. Doom 3 is a totally different game. It’s an early 00s game that was full 3d, slower paced, and bordered on survival horror. Gameplay and visuals share nothing in common with I & II. Back when it came out I couldn’t believe my eyes; it was such a technical achievement graphically. I found it really difficult and never beat it back in the day, but I got this version and am really looking forward to trying to beat it again

That's what I was thinking but I am always terrible about the sell the thing later part of it.  

 

I can attest to it completely crashing my 1X  while trying to join a multiplayer session.  Haven't played since I beat it around the time of the Halloween event so it may have been patched to alleviate that problem since then.  The first DLC expansion is suppose to be pretty good, anybody here try it?

We started the first DLC expansion over the weekend and it's pretty fun, running around Jack's abandoned casino full of marauders. The once-nice-went-to-shit setting is thematically reminiscent of Bioshock, but it's really just more Borderlands.
