I am seeing the game pass quests as of last night and was wondering about what the notifications I was getting were all about.

 

I was playing Slay the Spire and got three notifications for playing a game pass game, getting an achievement in said game and logging in on the mobile app. It is a neat system and I'm glad they added it. You can find the quests under your achievements page on the left side.

 

I haven't played Slay the Spire in a while and I finally beat the real game for the first time with the Ironclad and got the true ending. I had an amazing run. It is such a great game. Definitely one of my personal GOTY.

Anyone have a switch lite case they like? I bought the official Nintendo one but it feels too soft and cheap with not enough depth to it.

This is the case I bought and I really like it. I researched a bunch before I finally picked a case out.

 

PowerA Protection Case Kit for Switch Lite

 

Decent hard shell, the switch lite fits it tight and it looks nice and clean.

Storage of six games, the game storage area is nice felt like material that keeps the screen from getting scratched and it has a little Velcro flap to keep the switch locked in tight. The upper area of the case has a small zipper pouch. Comes with a nice cleaning cloth and a screen protector. I did not use the screen protector so I'm not sure if it is any good,

Great, live service features are exactly what was missing from Bioshock, no way this can blow up in their face.

 

https://www.reddit.c...stings_confirm/

 

The developer of "Bioshock 4" released new job lisitings that suggests it'll be a live service game with endgame content.
 
"To leverage this, we want to build a post-narrative set of systems, quests and player progression that gives our fanatic fangirls and fanboys more content to experience on an ongoing, live-services basis."
 
"You have shipped at least one triple-A title with end-game style content as a senior or principal designer. You have a sophisticated understanding of current trends in first-person action game design, the ability to articulate a vision for the evolution of same, and, know what it takes to execute an idea from concept to ship. Experience in live services content is a huge plus, here."
 
2K publishing says they want to provide content to fans on a live service basis.

 

Would you kindly not make this a live services game.

According to the reminder email I got last week all of our earned trophies up until Nov 7 should count towards pass progress even if it's not updating in the app:

I glad they pointed this out. I should have one Platinum Pass and one Silver Pass completed now. So I will grab a $10 card whenever they decide to add the points to my account. It was a super fun time while it lasted and I'm sad to see it end. I got plenty of free PSN cards with this program.

Extinction worth at least a fiver? Know it got panned but anybody play it?


I think it’s ok. I got a couple hours of enjoyment out of it for $11 when I bought it for cheap on amazon.

I highly recommend City of Brass for $6. That game is really awesome and has lots of free post content support since release.

I picked up Rocketbirds this morning. Since they didn't release both Rocketbirds games on the same day and they said they are going to spread out the releases I better not see the next game until at least December or later. Spreading out releases doesn't mean next week or the week after.

 

Also their marketing efforts are the worst. They literally announced two games this week less than a day before they went on sale. How about devising a plan and schedule for your releases. They've been at this for four years now you think they would be better at scheduling and marketing their releases.

Do any of you have the Mortal Kombat Kollection on 360 (not backwards compatible). I put myself through hell last night beating the 3 arcade games and I'd like to clean up the online achievements. There are only two easy ones but no one plays this game anymore

I have it and I still have my 360 hooked up. I am missing only one online achievement for the flawless victory.

The other one I am missing is for 200 matches but that can be completed offline.

I think I will stick with my retail preorder at BB with GCU for $23.
I really don't need all the extras and I've been wanting to play the game for a while now but waited for the physical release.

I like the idea of the digital soundtrack being exclusive to the retail version.

Special Reserve does such a great job with their releases. You can't go wrong with any of these.

LRG decided to split up the Rocketbirds releases apparently.

 

It annoys me how much LRG ignores its customers who were expecting these two games to be released at the same time.

You have these games on hand there is no reason to space out these releases.

FYI - Lonely Mountains Downhill is now available for download on Game Pass.

I played some last night. It is a beautiful game that can be brutally difficult. I hope I can get better at the game as I had some fun with it. When you have a nice run the game feels really good and relaxing. It was a little frustrating at times at how easily you can just clip something and crash but in other instances I could run into something and not crash. I kind of wish it had a map similar to a racing game so I can at least have a feel of direction sometimes. There are lots of twists and turns and alternate routes but figuring these out without a map can be frustrating. Overall a great addition to Game Pass.
