Evolve is fun, just hard to find matches, at least it was during one of those free play weekends. For the record, i played the beta and hated it back then too. It's definitely a whole lot better now. Hopefully being GWG will mean more people will play.

I played on that free weekend and it was definitely better than the beta had been but same thing. Very few people playing. This is a rare example of where I might actually hop on and play a GWG right away in hopes that maybe it'll have a community for a couple of weeks. Then I'll probably never play it again.
GWG for March
Not a bad month for me though. I own Borderlands 2 on disc but always happy to get rid of a disc.

Oh man! Thanks a lot. Where the heck did all of these codes come from. I picked The Wrestler this time. That one was moving.
WWE and Vudu have had promos running for last week or so. blu-ray.com's forums is a good place to keep track of digital movie promo type stuff, without having to wade through SD.
This code was temporarily invalid due to running out. Showing up valid again for anyone who couldn't use it before.

Is anyone able to tell me why the Nintendo aisle looks like Hurricane Katrina went thru it? Its a GHOST TOWN in there.. i.e. the 3DS and Wii U Game cases are like 75% empty.. and this is at 5+ Targets that I've been to since Xmas..
Furthermore why does no one seem to have or carry the NEW Nintendo 3DS XL anymore? I have been going to BB, Target, GS, and Wally World(take a shower after each trip of course) and they have been OUT OF STOCK since Xmas eve...
I have $200 burning a hole in my pocket.. any idea whats up?
p.s. My Black Friday Mario all black Edition finally came in from Walmart 2 weeks ago so I'm sittin on that but I hear the NEW 3DS XL screen is a full inch bigger so waiting on that and returning my special Mario edition..
p.s.s. All this jus because I want to play Chrono Trigga on the "big screen" and well I guess FFVI too.. or am I doing something wrong here? sKooL me fellas!
Rumors are that Nintendo is pulling all unsold Wii-U's from store shelves so that may be part of it.

they don't consider gamestop retail, they consider it a hobby shop......
which is also why dude prob ran into trouble at target.
I believe you are thinking of used games. That's the issue you run into honestly, a lot of Target/Best Buy employees think GameStop only sells used games so they may try to deny the match.
Best Buy's price match policy in particular is actually pretty lenient, as they leave room for basically any competitor within 30 miles and are able to just type in a store name if it isn't on their internal list (funny enough, in the past they've had to write in Kmart as apparently there are so few left that Best Buy stopped including it by default). Since there is a Microsoft Store near me, the Best Buy's near me will even match their prices. It's great, I tell them I just want to avoid going to the Mall of America and every employee I've ever asked has basically responded with, "That's smart!" and done the match.

Checking out the 360 deals:
Is Deadpool worth getting at $20 or should I wait for the price to drop further? I really liked the movie and I'm keeping my Marvel gaming on Xbox whenever I can.
Deadpool is not worth $20. Has a few funny moments but incredibly repetitive gameplay and it's a short game. I rented it from Redbox and beat it in an afternoon without feeling like I was rushing it. I would MAYBE say $20 for the disc is acceptable cause you could resell it to reduce the actual cost, but I wouldn't pay more than $5 for digital, maybe $10 if you just really really really really really really love Deadpool.

For the price, Portal 2 is an easy sell even if you just play the SP. BC is icing on the cake (which is a lie).
Portal 2 eventually requires some quick reflexes but it may actually be a great game for her to acclimate to dual analog first person. No precise aiming, no enemies rushing you, can take most puzzles as slow as you like. I think for less than $7 it's a good gamble.
I agree with this. Portal 2 should get bumped to the top of your backlog. I didn't like it as much as Portal but in fairness it also wasn't the first time I experienced the concept. Portal games are a blast and super fun as far as puzzle games go. I have a 360 disc copy and I'll probably be buying digital and ditching the disc at this price. So even if she doesn't like it, there's a great game to be had. Which is really why she might come around to the FPS controls. The game is so fun that she may find the patience to stick with it.
ARK players... (are there any?)
On the fence on this one. How has the game come along since it first joined Game Preview? I know there are achievements now, but how is the gameplay loop?
Just read this review from the store page:
Is this true? Sounds awful...
I demo'd ARK when it was on sale around Black Friday. I played for about 30 minutes. Died 4 times, twice due to glitches, once because I had no idea what I was supposed to do (I wound up googling the controls), I'll explain the 4th reason below. It's an absolute dumpster fire. Playing solo the graphics ranged from glitchy to mediocre, gameplay left a lot to be desired and the best way I can sum up the game is this:
The 3rd time I died at night. I re-spawned at night. With nothing in my inventory and in pitch black. I couldn't even see wood/other materials needed to pick up in order to light a fire to see where I was going or what I was doing. Before it became daylight I died of starvation. Just sitting there. In the dark, unable to do or see anything.
That's ARK in a nutshell. It's such a mess that I'm surprised that Microsoft is letting them sell it (let alone the fact that they are also selling DLC for a game that isn't even close to being a finished product, which also tells you the developer's priorities). It just makes the whole game preview system look like shit.

Forza Motorsport 6 seems Free play Days or Free: https://i.imgur.com/E8MINnE.png
Its not the standard edition, that you can buy fo 30 bucks and not the demo, but on the console there is the Install button. I don't see in my Xbox app as on the picture, so a bit strange, but most of the weekend stuffs starts on Thursdays...
Ahhh. I was super confused why this showed up. Now I know. Wonder if offline play will work once free weekend is over.

OFF: Just found a "Leftover add-ons" button in the Xbox One settings / storage - there you can manage (delete) the previously downloaded add-ons for games. Maybe you can get some free space by deleting the useless add-ons. Found addons for Forza Horizon 2 that I sold more than a year or DLCs for Project cars that I never had...
That's awesome, thanks. Now if only they had a "You own this but didn't download this DLC you also own" or "These games you own have free dlc" option. lol
