#12818613 XBL Deals - DwG: Forza, Infinity Runner, Rockstar | GwG: XB1: AC4, So Many...

Agree completely.

 

 

I know it's blasphemy, but I'd say it's worth it to learn how to do it yourself. Not speaking from experience, but getting marrried seems to be much worse than making your own sandwiches.

Couldn't agree less.  My spouse is the best thing that ever happened to me.  When you find the right one, love them completely.  

 

I recently came across a Reddit thread asking wealthy/successful people who came from humble origins what they did to make their money.  It was interesting how many of them said that a supportive spouse was the key to their success.  

 

Oh and:  In for lots of good sales this week.  Vesperia is a steal.  Anyone on the fence shouldn't hesitate.  I think I'll also pick up Tekken Tag 2 so I don't have to swap a disc in.  Hoping that goes to BC.

It's sad that The Order is the best deal of this sale so far. The CE for $20 is great, but it's a shame the game is meh at best. I picked it up shortly after it launched for $25 and have yet to open it. 

Agreed.  GCU changed the game.  Amazon STILL hasn't caught up.

This.

 

I wish Ori and the Blind Forest was more than 25% off.  I think I'll hold off.

 

I said the same thing until I bought it yesterday and started to play it.  Worth every penny.  You guys are missing out.

These sub $5 games are eating up my lunch...like a pack of chihuahuas bringing down an elk.

 

I wish the Fable games were $5 individually.  I own all of them physically and wouldn't mind buying them all again digitally (expecting them to be BC someday), but I already have Fable III from GwG months ago.

Yeah and not bundling the DLC with 2 and 3 makes me want to avoid this release.  Kind of a bummer.

 

 

So I'm thinking Ori, Goat Simulator, or Killer Instinct. Which one should I get?

 

 

Do you have a gaming PC?  If so, I'd pickup Goat Simulator there for cheap if you are interested.  It isn't a game that will occupy your interest for long.  

 

I bought Ori on Monday and am loving it.  Totally worth the full asking price IMO.  Killer Instinct seems like a great deal right now too.  Do you want a fighter right now or a platformer?  They're both great.




#12785996 Xbox Ultimate Game Summer Sale 2015 - Starting 7/7 through 7/13

Posted by midloo on 06 July 2015 - 01:13 AM

If it involves Microsoft in any capacity, I expect to be disappointed.

Awww come on.  Give Spectre some credit.  He and his team have been kicking a disgusting amount of ass since taking over.  They had to dig out of a deep hole and IMO, they are doing it.  They're turning a behemoth around that few people liked around the X1 launch.  That's very hard work that takes talent and a real desire to win hearts and minds.  




#12780292 Borderlands: The Handsome Collection - $39.99 via Amazon

Posted by midloo on 02 July 2015 - 12:30 AM

I'm not sure about this being a msrp drop. Best buy still has it for full price. Perhaps gamestop just has it on sale and Amazon matched it.

I think this is correct.  I'm still seeing $60 for digital.  

 

It seems like this game should have had a deep digital sale by now (and it should have launched at $40 MSRP).

Ok I'll address the elephant in the room

 

Why so much animosity towards your mailman? lol

 

He was featured in Chevy Chase's 'Funny Farm', though they had to use another actor for the scene where he pretended to be a decent person.  

 

In truth, it all started when one morning our mailbox door was ripped off.  I happened to be outside when he was delivering our mail and he said, "Fix your mailbox, please."  I said, "Okay" and thought...  "that's odd...  I wonder how it happened?"  

 

I loaded up the recorded footage for the day before from a security camera outside our house.  It showed the same bozo that just asked me to fix the mailbox kicking it and ripping the door off himself.   Then I went back to earlier recorded videos and saw that he liked to punch our packages a few times before he threw them up 10 stairs on to our porch.  

 

OK. 

 

The next day I stopped him while he was delivering mail and said, "I'd appreciate it if you would stop beating up our mailbox and throwing our packages.  I have you on video doing it."  He just looked up at me, slid his sunglasses down his nose, and with the lack of emotion of a serial killer said, "okay".  

 

Now he delivers beat up packages on the side door to our house where there is no security camera.  I'm here alone waiting to be robbed or killed right now as I type this.

Our mailman is one of the worst examples of humanity I've ever encountered.  

 

I hope this sale is so good that I break his back.

Yeesh.. do ANY SUikoden fans not hate IV?

 

Not this Suikoden fan.  I remember when IV was released.  I bought it without reading a review because it said "Suikoden" on it and I took that as a seal of quality.  That game felt like a betrayal.  It's probably why I love V so much.  While playing it, I kept thinking to myself, "Oh yeah... they still know how to make a good Suikoden game.  IV was a fluke."

Regardless of your stance on Shenmue 3 going to Kickstarter, this GIF of the GT guys reaction is priceless. Such joy. I love it. If this doesn't put a smile on your face, there is a good chance you are dead inside.

 

Spoiler

 

Color me dead.  That guy looks like he has far too much emotionally invested in video games.

Any reason not to wait on it and see if it'll drop down below $20 at some point later?   Is it worth $20 in your opinion?

I've only played through the first chapter so far, but I'm enjoying it.  It plays like I have wanted an RE to play for a while.  

 

I'm old.  I was indifferent about the first RE on the PS1 when it was released.  I liked RE4 on the gamecube very much.  I thought RE5 was pretty okay if you wanted a coop experience and I couldn't force myself to get all the way through RE6.  

 

So far, RE Revelations 2 seems to be taking what I liked from all the previous RE games.  I haven't tried Raid mode yet, but many people say it's deep and worth the price of admission alone.  

 

I was happy to spend $20 on it.  Will it get cheaper?  Sure...  it's CAPCOM :)

I'm sure this has been asked so my bad in advance but is Revelations 2 on sale this week only $5 off the normal PSN price of Episode 1 + Season Pass or the Complete Season? I haven't really been paying attention to the console ones because I was waiting for the Vita port but I have a feeling its not going to turn out so great. Hope I'm wrong, though.

Yes - you can save a little bit on the full digital game right now.  I mentioned some specifics about this wonky sale here:
