#13835836 Microsoft Rewards E-mail members only 30% off a Microsoft Store Gift Card

Posted by midloo on 20 September 2017 - 07:08 PM

I have this in my earn section now, i really hope they didn't mean 30% off game pass but in the e-mail they clearly say gift cards.



That offer is also listed further down in the Rewards email.  Clearly separate from the gift card promo description.

LA Noire is easily on my top 10 list for worst endings for a game.

Agreed.  Totally out of left field and damned silly on top of it.

‚ÄčIt's an endless source of amazement that Bulletstorm didn't launch for $20 or less.  


Thanks, Bloomy.

Ghost Recon Wildlands is $35 right now. Is it worth for $26 after the discount? For Honor is $30 so about $22 after discount.


Edit: realized deal isn't until next week; not sure if these prices will be the same then

Absolutely worth it if you have friends to play it with.  I haven't laughed harder during a gaming session than I laughed playing it last week with two friends.  The game is a semi-boring cakewalk solo because your AI teammates are stone cold perfect killing machines.  Allow some friends to take those AI positions and things get hilarious. 


" Okay lets take these guys on 3.  Three....  two...."

" I shot that fucker!"

" Gah! that spooked my mark and now they are speeding away on a bike! We were supposed to work together, numb nuts!"

" It's cool I didn't feel like waiting and now we can run him down with our helicopter."


Then dozens of guys are chasing you, the chopper is spinning out of control, you forget to pull the parachute cord until the last second after you tumble out of the chopper, and you just caught a glimpse of your other buddy in the distance flying into a river on a dirt bike because he overshot a turn in all the panic and hustle. 


I was surprised at how bananas the game gets.  Tons of fun.

Why anyone would trust Capcom with a preorder after Street Fighter V is beyond me.  


Yes, it's less than $60, but if this goes off as badly as SFV, you'll still be regretting your preorder a year from now.

meh its happened long enough before already. I've seen Gameboy take down the Lynx, game gear, neo geo pocket, game com, neo geo color. all beat without a sweat, gameboy ruled recess.
only the psp put up a decent fight.

but than again maybe the 3ds is the last handheld and the switch will take over.


My Switch has totally replaced my 3DS even though the library of great 3DS games I haven't played is deep.  It just feels so damned good to play things like Zelda and Splatoon 2 on the go.  


Still love my VITA too though.  Actually just ordered my first Slim yesterday.  


The Switch makes me wish all the major platforms had a Switch-like device.  Sure it isn't going to happen and we can't cram a PS4 into something the size of a galaxy tab, but a person can dream.

#13761210 Official Playstation VR Deals and Discussion Thread

Does anyone know if Amazon is going to have a sale on the VR headset anytime soon? I have a$150 giftcard and I've been wanting to get the PSVR so I'd like to get the most out of this giftcard as possible.

 Maybe on their "Prime Day" coming on July 15th, but doubtful.  If it were me, I'd wait to see if it happens to be on sale and then buy it anyway if it isn't.  PSVR is too much fun to miss!

I have a feeling someone was trying to get me to waste my hard earned credit on a bad game...


Nah.  You're good. 


Go for it.

Now I don't have to open my copy of UMC3 from GameStop! And I keep reading about how good Mount & Blade: Warband is. Can anyone tell me why it's so highly revered? And does it have lots of replay value?


Mount and Warblade did some unique things with it's open world and hardcore attention to historical detail at the time.  I had a friend that obsessed over it.  It's a good game, and very engrossing if you get hooked by it.  Certainly worth $10 to check out IMO.

Must be a regional place, never heard of that company before here in Scranton, Pa.

Have you actually tried one? It's the most 'nintendo' feeling console I've tried in years.


I have.  It feels good in the hand.  I don't have a deep seeded dislike of Nintendo hardware like many people who would point out how much better the Vita's hardware specs are than the 3DS.  Who cares if the game library isn't as good? 


I overlooked Nintendo's platform issues and happily bought a Wii and a Wii U at launch.  I've enjoyed them both, but I've personally had it with their decisions.  This was their chance to come up with "Nintendo-like" solutions to what have become solid standards in the modern gaming landscape: unified accounts that aren't tied to hardware, suit of social tools, meta gaming systems like achievements, etc etc etc. 


If and when they release a hardware revision and there is a solid 3 or 4 first party games that I can't already play on the Wii U, I might take the plunge, but I just don't understand the excitement around this console at launch.

I am butthurt. I grew up playing the original nes. I want a great Nintendo console. This thing isn't it. They need to do better.

Still amazed people are embracing this garbage platform.


1 step forward, 2 steps back.


Plastic screen, remote issues, no achievement/trophy/cards system, no proper unified account system, friend codes, terrible battery life, etc etc etc. 


What are all you people smoking?

Thanks. Why can't I pull the trigger? I want this, but know it's probably best to wait until the fall.

Edit...Pro controller also in stock.

Because it's going to tank hard? Because it still doesn't have a proper unified account system? Because there is one good game for it and the game is also available on the previous platform? Because there are serious issues with the left joy con? Because battery life is poor?
