Keep an eye on your mailbox as Best Buy is sending out catalogs that will include a $5 certificate for some people.

Nintendo and Microsoft have no trouble updating controllers without pesky wires. :razz:

How did you go 30 years without ever having a PS system? That's like saying you never had a Nintendo system.

Also, there's an accessibility option that lets you hold a button prompt instead of mashing it. Makes it much easier to do those QTEs - those mashing ones are just never fun. Once you get over the novelty of Spidey falling flat on his back or getting crushed by a car, you should just make the switch.

Try playing anything on Switch after having Xbox's layout ingrained as your default. :-P

There's a whole bunch of stuff for $5-15. Wario posted mostly everythging:

Captain Tsubasa
Lumines
Accounting+
Chivalry 2
Subnautica
Azure Lane
Vitamin Connection
Evil Dead
DOKI DOKI LITERATURE CLUB
Panzer dragoon remake
Ion Fury
In sound Mind

And a few others I can't remember right now, stuff selling out fast

Edit: added couple more

My guess is some of these were meant to be part of the daily $10 sale for the rest of the week but someone pushed the wrong button. :-

You're telling me a studio known for nothing but ports wasn't properly set up to do a full remaster of a game? :razz:

Yeah I bought it. It was on a discount at $16 when I purchased yesterday, not sure if that’s still the case

;)

 

Those who have already purchased Bright Memory on Xbox Series X|S can get a 20% discount on Infinite.

Lack of disc means I will wait for Black Friday sale for $20 in 2023.

Yeah right, the 2 year old launch titles might barely inch towards that price this BF given Sony's recent deal history.

Anybody else have trouble accessing BestBuy through Firefox? I haven't been able to for months now but works just fine on Chrome.

Usually when a site doesn't work on Firefox, I go delete the cookies for just that site and it starts working just fine.

So according to new Todd Howard interview, Elder Scrolls 6 is only in pre-production. To which I ask WHY THE Fuck DO THESE COMPANY'S FEEL THE NEED TO MAKE ANNOUNCEMENT TRAILERS WHEN A GAME IS SO FAR OFF? That was like what? 2018 or 2019 we had that trailer?? And doing bullshit guessing I'm guessing game won't release until the very friggin earliest 2024 holiday season?

They straight up said when they announced it that they were only confirming it's existence so people would stop asking about it.

A little bummed that Sony-published and Sony studio-developed MLB The Show is on Game Pass but not PS+. Other than that, launch list generally looked pretty good to me. Played some Tetris Effect last night. Going to play Ys 9. Will check-out Returnal even though it's not really my kind of thing.

That's the thing though. On Xbox The Show is Sony developed but published by MLB themselves which is why Microsoft can deliver a truck of cash to get it on Game Pass day one.

 

Maybe they could add it after 8-9 months like EA does but Sony might expect less sales of the new one if they do that.

Is there a good way to watch this from an Xbox? RIP Mixer

The YouTube or Twitch apps. I also miss them broadcasting their events live in 4K from Mixer. Now you have to watch the VOD after the fact to get it the way it was meant to be seen.

I thought LRG only did their site, Amazon, and Best Buy. How are Target or Walmart getting Shredder's Revenge if it's distributed by LRG?

 

They are expanding their distribution network for this game I guess.

LRG distributes games to retailers via U&I just like many other indie game companies. Turtles might be big enough that they never even touch the retail copies as it would make more sense for Nin/Sony/MS to deliver them directly to U&I.

 

Unless they are personally inserting each pizza coupon themselves. :-P

Maybe the S really is a better canvas for this type of thing but it kinda seems like even Microsoft can't spare an X to give away for a contest. :razz:
