make sure to wear armor and if your longsword lasts longer than 4 hours consult your medicine man

If it lasts longer than 4 hours, forget calling the doctor. I'm calling EVERYONE.

Fair warning to anyone who sees the $2 price tag. The game has MULTIPLE unobtainable achievements.

April Fool's Day should fall on a Monday more often.

Maybe Deathsmiles II X would finally go on sale then? :P

So hard to get used to waiting until 8pm for date night to start. If I had a date, I wouldn't make them wait an extra hour just because of daylight savings.

 

^ I am just bringing up those since they are good games that have similar scores to Andromeda.  

I have not played Andromeda, won't until tomorrow. Maybe it is a pile of garbage. But I just think canceling your order because of a 75 is odd since that is not a bad score.

 

I loved Medal of Honor: Warfighter and that has a 55. DON'T @ ME.

I feel review scores are a bit BS these days (and probably have been forever). Seems if a game gets less than an 8, it makes the game automatically bad. Sure, I've played my fair amount of shit games,but I wouldn't consider a game 'bad' unless it get something like a 3 or 4 out of 10. Heck, I don't even bother with written reviews much anymore and prefer to go off either word of mouth, or if that's not available, I'll check out some video reviews. While I may heed to some degree what the person may be saying, I try to pay attention more to the content of the video itself and see how the game appears to play.

 

The Dead Rising 4 DLC is official.

 

Frank Rising - 4/4 - $9.99 - Story DLC

Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf  - 'Spring' - $9.99 - Online 4-player mini golf

 

More here: https://news.xbox.co...4-frank-rising/

I'd be lying if the idea of Dead Rising mini golf doesn't sound awesome. Loved the wacky settings of some previous Dead Rising DLC and sounds like a good time to get the wolfpac back together.

And they go free or cheap fairly regularly on iOS. Never got why people like them on console. Smartphones and tablets would seem ideal for these games. But I'm not much into them myself so maybe I'm missing something.

Maybe some people actually enjoy these point and click titles, but most would prefer playing them on console only because you can't get Xbox achievements on your Android. (Not counting Wordament and Minecraft).

 

You guys are probably on your own tonight for deal checking.  Went to PAX East over the weekend, and my return flight from Boston today has been delayed 3 times so far.  Date night should be at 8pm Eastern tonight because of the DST switch, and I may not be home to run my scan when the drops occur.

Stay safe Blooms. Luckily for you, I'm pretty sure the cheaters are in hiding until next August or so which is when they come back out in full force.

That's it, we're not paying you to do this job anymore. You're fired!

We were paying him?

 

You guys know not everybody lives in the same timezone right? 

Always thought that EST was the only timezone that mattered.

Has anyone played Turnon and have thoughts on it?

As mentioned, it's a pretty chill platformer that's on the easier side. 1k is definitely doable in 6-8 hours iirc.

Yeah, you're right.  It's hard to remember mana costs in my head.  I started playing right around Ice Age.  All this new stuff makes me feel super old, but also kinda makes me want to start up again.

I just realized when you said Mirrodin, you probably meant back in 2003 / 2004 around the time of Fifth Dawn and Kamigawa block. For whatever reason, I always think of Scars of Mirrodin which wasn't until 2010 or so. 

 

Definitely worth getting back into I'd say. Power level probably isn't as high as you're used to, but some fun stuff gets printed and if you remember Nicol Bolas, MTG is visiting his home plane in April with the release of Amonkhet (Egyptian styled plane that Bolas created to my understanding). Not much into competitive myself, but always loved playing draft / sealed and getting into Commander (Elder Dragon Highlander).

 

One thing worth checking out would be Magic Digital Next or whatever they're calling it. Think it comes out later this year and is supposed to be the middle tier between Magic Online and the Magic Duels of the Planeswalkers series.

I haven't played since... I don't know... Mirrodin or so.  That card seems kinda broken.

 

As for tonight, I'm not really hoping for much.  I don't think RE7 is going to see a significant drop anytime soon and that's one of the games I'm interested in.

It's actually the same exact card as Wrath of God. Only difference being it's color shifted to Black and was originally in Planar Chaos. This version is from Modern Masters 2017 which releases in on St Patrick's Day. Between this, Goblin Guide, and the Zendikar fetch lands, spoiler season is off to a strong start.

 

As for myself, didn't start until a few years ago just after the Avacyn Restored block was wrapping up. So getting the chance to grab these older cards at cheaper prices excites me.

This might sound blasphemous, but I don't care if the sales suck tonight, because today has already been awesome. Any magic players in here will know what I'm talking about. :D/

Is this for an achievement?

Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

There is no achievement for getting challenges. However, sometimes there are in game rewards (not sure if this is the case).

 

 

 

THEE STRIKER? Pretty sure there is only room for one Striker in this thread. :booty:

 

is Blur a good game?

Blur was pretty sweet. It's more or less Mario Kart but with real cars. And instead of bullshit AI and blue turtle shells, you have bullshit AI anf get shunted to death.

 

Is a shame that the multiplayer is dead (as far as I know). Loved playing online in arena mode which was basically a desturction derby mode. Laying down mines and splitting them into multiple smaller mines and wrecking the crap out of my opponents was so cheap, but my thirst was quenched quite regularly off their salty tears.

We are easily the coolest thread if thats what you mean.

Even though there are some non-cool people in here for reasons that shall not be mentioned. ;)

 

Off topic, but I feel I'd trust the opinion of people here more. Looking at a new PC / gaming chair and was wondering if anyone has experience with any of the wide array of gaming chairs out there and would be willing to recommend one.

Think of it this way Student. With the Patsies getting destroyed tonight, those Super Bowl LI shirts are going to a good cause to cloth the people in third world countries.
