#14374262 XBL Deals - DwG: Assassin's Creed, Watch Dogs, more | Golden Week, Star...

Anybody know what the future of BC is on the Xbox One? I couldn't find anything about what happens post Xbox Series X release. I have a few disc games on the 360 I still would like to play through like Binary Domain and Tenchu Z.

 

I figured we might start getting the weekly updates again about what new games have been added via BC, but haven't heard a peep! Hoping I just missed something.

I started yakuza 0 and the game is just okay to me so far;  I'm around chapter 6 or so.  Did you feel like 0/1/2 were good?  Sounds like you are on the same page as me if you are questioning playing 3-6, or maybe just burning out on them.  I'm trying to feel out if these games get better or what I am getting myself into and if I should keep pushing forward with the franchise.  I want to like the game but mechanically it isn't very fun but the story is really the only driving factor of continuing.

I enjoyed Yakuza 0 for the story and the newness of the gameplay, but it did start to wear out in the middle chapters. I took decent breaks from playing it and when I came back I would focus on the story. The amount of time spent doing the same street fights over and over is what burned me out. Some of the sidequests were humorous, but some where just odd. When I decided to play Yakuza 1 and 2, I focused more on the story and skipped most of the side content. It made for a good experience as a lot of the side content is the same in the later 2 games. Combat wise I think I enjoyed 2 > 0 > 1.

 

I would suggest stocking up on the strong healing items and just playing through the story. 1 or 2 chapters at a time. Unless you find a sidequest/game you want to try.

After seeing the December Gamepass announcement(lots to life there), it made me recall back in 2019 when Xbox announced that all the Final Fantasy games were coming to Xbox game pass in 2020. I think a few are still missing. I had wanted to run through FF12 again. Anybody hear anything about that or perhaps I just missed it?

Dragon's Dogma is $11.99, I've been waiting for it to go on sale again. I want to pick it up, but all those gamepass games that I haven't even gotten to yet... and the backlog.....

 

On a more positive note, I've finally playing through Dead Space 3 - Coop with my sister (clearing out the 360 backlog). I can see why this killed the series. It's not a bad game, but not really good like the first two. Real shame, as I enjoyed the first two games.

I’d like to point out that when the Xbox one launched many games were released for both the Xbox 360 and the Xbox one. Assassins creed 4, various call of duties, shadow of Mordor, etc. supporting both platforms for a year seems completely reasonable. I do recognize the 360 versions of games were gimped, but the Xbox one versions were the de facto version to play. I see this announcement as something in the same vein.

I’d love to hear others’ thoughts

I came across a few PS4 dlc type code when I did some game trading at Gamestop. I don't have a PS4, as I just use a xbox, but figured I would offer them up here first before I just code drop them as this is one of two threads I follow. I have no idea if the codes have already been redeemed, but send me a pm if one interests you.

DLC codes are for
  • Metal Gear Survivie - Free Survival Pack - gone
  • Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Season Pass
  • Marvel vs Capcom Infinite - Captain Marvel - Major Carol Danvers Costume - gone

I just beat Devil May Cry 5 last night. At the rate GamePass keeps adding games I will never finish any games I actually purchased.

 

I'm still playing through Ashen, The Surge, Hellblade, dead cells, moonlighter, and now I have to add bloodstained. Jeepers! I may never buy another game again. I just need them to add RE2 and Sekiro to gamepass.

I'm tempted by the $5 for the complete add on, but tbh I'll probably never play FM6. I rarely play racing games (outside Mario Kart), so I feel like I should pass, but it's only $5!!

Another alternative is to pick up a NES classic, SNES classic and the elite controller.

I may be one of the few to not own the handsome collection, but for $9 I'm tempted. Plenty of other games I would like to pick up, but will continue waiting for lower prices. I've got to continue working on my owned backlog and gamepass backlog.

Monster hunter world is $16.50. Lowest it's ever been. I know it's on game pass, but I might just buy it for keeps. Definitely plan to get the expansion in autumn.

Is there anything else as great? Especially in the white zebra pimp suit.

My friend and I call him Chris "Let's Rock" Redfield and it is one of the best moments in the game!
