I am that guy. If you can't take five seconds to answer your own question and instead expect others to do it for you I'm going to call you out.

Or maybe I looked, but didn't see anything and wanted to verify to make sure I wasn't blind.

Looks like Refunct is $1.50 for the first 10 days ($2.99 regular). Supposed to be a super easy completion as well according to TA.

Some OT: How did y'all come up with your online handle and/or GT names?

Jess Stryker is actually my second name (although it has had several variations). My first name was vgmmaster which came from winning a fantasy nba league as a kid. NBA.com called their game Virtual GM and since I won, I added the word master to the end.

 

Had that name for half a decade. Used to play a game called Cybernations (Independent Republic of Orange Nations) and would change my avatar every so often. However, I liked to create aliases for my avatars giving them their own name and backstory while doing a bit of roleplay as them. At one point I had a female boxer as my profile picture, thought "Stryker" as a last name was a clever play on words with her being a boxer, and "Jessica" was just a random first name that rolled off the tongue.

 

Had the variations of this name for about a decade now. Started as Jessica Stryker, went to JStryker416 when I joined XBL (JStryker was taken and I thought having a female name would have been odd at the time), and a few months ago went with the shortened Jess Stryker (the numbers were starting to bother me).

 

Covfefe was already taken

I don't know if you're joking, but there actually is an account with that name. Has 40k gamerscore too so somebody had to pay for a name change recently.

I would say to buy Lollipop Chainsaw, because let's be honest. How many games out there have an achievement for looking up a girl's skirt?

While you have an excellent eye for detail, you also have a drinking problem. :)

The only drinking problem I see is that he's spitting out his alcohol. That's a waste of perfectly good alcohol.

Haven't seen this mentioned, but looks like Ori ad The Blind Forest Definitive Edition is currently free for the next two days.

Although just in case, I apologize in advance to any Chilean miners out there.

Did another comb through the list to see what I missed earlier in the week and I think I may need to find some cuts before Monday. Good thing is, I didn't blow as much money pub crawling as I thought last night.

I feel this happens every date night:

 

Spoiler

Oops, he did it again

Bloomy played with our hearts

We got lost in his game

Oh Bloomy Bloomy

Oops, you faked a new sale

Deathsmiles still full price

Give us the sale that we want.

Don't think there's anything for me this week. Only thing I'm even remotely curious in is Claire and Ginger if anyone has experience with either of those two games.

 

Between the 4 NBA 2k games on Xbox One, they have a combined player count of 92,888 on TA.

 

Of those 92,888 players, there have only been 56 completions of an NBA 2k game.

 

2k Sports needs to die already.

It's not that 2ksports needs to die, they just need to have less shitty achievements.

All we need now is Raiden IV / Fighter Aces, the Qute Shooters, and Cave Shooters and we can shut down BC. We'll be good to go after that point.

 

Don't forget Forrest Gump in that movie list also.

Was in a Bubba Gump in Baltimore the other weekend and took me halfway through the meal to realize the place is practically a shrine to that Forrest Gump. Probably haven't seen the movie since I was a kid.

 

Haven't seen many movies myself and definitely missed out on a ton of classics. A few I don't recall seeing mentioned though unless I missed it through all the pages (holy crap).

 

A Few Good Men

Air Force One

Home Alone 1 & 2

Heavy Metal

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

National Lampoon's Summer Vacation

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

Rocky Horror Picture Show

Super Troopers

Top Gun

Kind of a ray of sunshine aren't you? :D/

In all honesty, him living in PA explains a lot, more so being in Philly / Yankee territory. Hell, I'm surprised I'm not more bitter living here. :P

Lot of hit or miss or games (out of what I don't already have).

 

Probably the only game that has a realistic chance of being bought may be Aqua Kitty if anyone has experience with that. Saw that it was a shmup, but looks like it plays a bit on the slow side from videos?

 

Other titles that intrigue me:

 

Shred It

Kona

The point and click game I've already forgotten the name of

 

On an unrelated note, for anyone who is picking out a custom xbox one avatar, are you guys having as much trouble trying to decide as I am?

Has the Xbone Yu-Gi-Oh game ever been on sale? Anyone here played it and has any thoughts?

It's been on sale twice, both times in the holiday season of 2015 for $14.99. Been a long time since I've booted it up, but if you've played any of the Yu-Gi-Oh games on Xbox 360, Legacy of the Duelist is the definitive game on consoles. The campaign mode is the best it's ever been as it's essentially a story mode through the anime which is a nice nostalgia trip. When playing, you're able to use your own decks or if you're looking for a more casual setting, you can use the decks of the characters as well. Want to play Yugi's deck while he crushes Joey Wheeler? Feel free.

 

There's also a draft / sealed mode. Didn't mess with it much as I'm horrible at Yu-Gi-Oh, but it's a nice feature the past games didn't have.

 

From a card perspective, not sure if there's new expansion packs or not, but it has (to my understanding) a high number of the cards from the paper game and there's no BS deck building restriction like the Magic Duels game. Game also introduces a thing called Pendulum Summoning.

 

If you're at all a fan of the card game (or wanting to learn), it's worth picking up. And having been a long time since it's last sale (and the state of Konami), I can't say I'd expect a sale anytime soon.
