#13905902 Amazon: $59.99 Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands War Within the Car...

Seems like a pretty great price for all that.  Wish I hadn't just bought the standard version a couple of weeks ago.

 

You should probably list the sale price somewhere, OP.

I suppose sending form emails to my congress people wasn't very useful. I hadn't really considered you could program a script to generate thousands of the stupid things. They also throw out ones that use synonyms, so even if you re-worded some of it (like I barely did) they'll just chaulk that up to machine learning.

I'm not sure how you're blaming Pai for "covering things up." Is he supposed to believe the 300,000 forms in favor, or those against? Not defending the guy, he's clearly a corporate shill, just not sure what anyone could do with that "information."

Ugh. I hate it when something 80% of people are in favor of keeping getting brought to a vote until enough people lose interest for it to finally get voted down. I know when Pai brought it up this last time my reaction was "this again?" How many times do we have to tell you that we don't want ISPs to throttle certain connections at their whim?

 

Pai has the most punchable face I have ever seen. 

 

 

 

Please refrain from the political discourse here. This thread is one of my escapes from non stop political bullshit. Let's talk deals, XBox, Christmas, anything other than politics.

 

This should be on the mind of every fan of online games, including those who like deals.  Frivolity is 99% of the content here.  You can handle a few people talking about the death of the internet for a day or two on CAG.




#13900368 PayPal - $5 off $20 Nintendo purchase

Posted by midloo on 06 December 2017 - 03:25 PM

If I have money in my account, will it still let me use PayPal? Or do I have to empty my account wallet to use a different form or payment?

Yeah I'm curious about this as I have about 3 dollars of credit in my Nintendo wallet.  I'm also curious about the amount.  I'd like Rocket League or the Zelda Season pass, but they are both 19.99.  Will that be eligible?

Mordheim is great. If you like tactical turn based games, it's a good ride.

How so? AC used to be good and is changing things up after multiple missteps. Mordor is really fun to muck about, like having fun in GTA/Saints Row and ignoring the story missions.

 

If you didn't enjoy the original Middle Earth game enough to get through it, why bother with the new one?  Origins is the showpiece for the Xbox One X if that's what you want and Ubi has been praised for taking an extra year to polish it and add features.

If I was to pick one enhanced open world game from a bad publisher: AC Origins or Shadow of War?

Context: I've liked all the AC games from 2 through 4, didn't like Unity/Syndicate. Enjoy slaughtering orcs but can't be bothered to finish actually going through Shadow of Mordor.

Seems like you are answering your own question.




#13881605 Torment: Tides Of Numenera - Xbox $11

Posted by midloo on 19 November 2017 - 01:50 AM

Can anyone speak to how the loading times in this game are? I was enjoying Pillars of Eternity until I couldn't stand the long load times anymore. This looks like a worse game than Pillars, so I'll tolerate load times even less.


I have it in pc and Xbox one s with external drive. Load times aren't as fast as pc, but their big patch earlier in the year helped. They're fine. Nothing major. Careful with reviews because much of the technical issues at release have been resolved on pc and Xbox. Great game. Spend the money.

:vita: VA-11 HALL-A - $14.99

 

Valhalla is absolutely phenomenal and worth full price. I wish I didn't wait for a sale until I played it on PC. Hasn't really gone under $10.

 

Yep.  Great game.  I didn't know it had a console release.  Worth every penny on the PC.

Anyone else experiencing oddities with their wishlist? I just took a look at mine and right at the top, it has Ys Origin listed (which I did not put on my wishlist and, in fact, already own.)  I attempt to remove it and I get a message telling me it cannot be removed. I've tried botn in Dolphin and Chrome, and neither work.

Yes.  I had one item on my Wishlist last week and now I have 17!

Looks like The Surge is close to 20.  Yeah it keeps going on sale and will probably go lower, but I'd like to check out a sci-fi Souls clone.

Preliminary list of deals while I add more to it:

This is a great list!  I've had a blast with PSVR over the last year and am going to have a hard time not adding a bunch to the collection this week.  It's extra-good to have VR games digital.  No fussing with disks while you're off in VR land.
