#14249123 XBL Deals - 2019

Posted by dragonjud on 26 December 2019 - 02:36 PM

Has anyone had issues with games installing from disc? DVDs and Blu Rays load right up on both my Xbox One X and Xbox One Fatty but my son got Plants vs Zombies Battle for Neighborville and I can’t get it to spin up. I thought it might be the disc so I tried Overwatch and that won’t spin up either. I’ve tried hard reset on both Xbox Ones, I’ve tried different discs, I even completely reset both xboxes and reloaded all the profiles. I read online sometimes instant on messes w discs so I shut that off and hard reset and still nothing. I unplugged it, unplugged both usb external drives and then plugged it back in turned it on and plugged back in the externals, that actually got it to install on the Xbox One Fatty and then I booted the game and it worked. Then I popped out the disc and put it back in and now it tells me I don’t own the license for the game because it’s not finding the game again. I’m in the preview program but just the lowest tier.

I think tomorrow I’ll contact Xbox Support. Just wanted to see if any of you have had this issue.

Ahh, somebody having the same issue.  I've had this same problem with both of my slims.  The worse culprits are the Batman Telltale series.  The discs spin for a second, and then I try to load them, and I get a 'no license' notification.  I do have external drives on both and the majority of the content is stored externally.  That said, I think this is a software bug as it just started happening over the last few months.
A cache clearing full disconnect usually solves the problem, but it is annoying.

Beyond the nostalgia, why do any of you want this?  Emulators are a thing, and even with a little tinkering your Wii, Wiiu, ps3, psp etc. can do just as good a job playing these old games.  

Beyond the reseller fever and making a few bucs (not anymore), I don't get it.

Works fine...but 75 shipped. Still not good enough. GameStop is selling at 80 on Black Friday. Cannot do it. Sub 65 or bust.

No offense, but after ToysRus markup and tax you are not getting a real discount on these. Yes, I already heard the Lego purists: "These are Legos and they are expensive".
Point taken, but this is the toys to life video game realm where crap becomes heavily discounted if it doesn't sell.
Given the amount of Lego stuff on the shelves...it's only a matter of waiting.

#12944549 PSN Weekly Deals - 7/12: RePlay Sale! $8 N++, $8 Galak-Z,...

Posted by dragonjud on 29 September 2015 - 08:22 PM

The whole Brothers game re-release and even print to blu-Ray shows the state of console development these days. A thousand Assassin Creeds rehashes and even copying hand-held concepts to add to the console libraries (Nintendo and Sony both guilty ).
The whole toys to life is now a severely saturated market. They really need some fresh air in this industry (and I'm not referring to another 3ds redesign by Nintendo ) ...end of rant

Like the new vehicles and definitely a welcome change. The formula was getting stale and trap team was too greedy with its "door locking at every point" . Even the locked areas were lazily done with some only a mere walk to the stupid hat that it was locking.
Without a sale and Disney infinity and Lego dimensions we will see who persuades with the more aggressive discounts.

On a separate note saw a target employee incorrectly filling shelves with Lego dimensions stuff. Felt bad for her and reminded her that's not supposed to be available til Sunday. I'm sure the registers would've blocked the sale as well. Not sure about the quality
Of that stuff/game but I saw there's a separate Simpsons expansion which is always a plus.

#12366397 Amiibos Currently Available and for Pre-order. Wave 4 announced *Do not post...

Posted by dragonjud on 29 December 2014 - 12:45 AM

Why is Fox sought after all of the sudden?

Because after the scalpers ran out of items to sell, this was the next figure that wasn't available everywhere (e.g. Mario, Zelda, etc.).

So, it too became Ebay fodder.

#11669230 Target Clearance Thread XXI (YMMV) [euthanised]

Posted by dragonjud on 05 April 2014 - 10:14 AM

Snagged a CoD: Ghosts 360/X1 code for $20.xx. Sneaky workers hid it behind another game in the case and had a stickered clearance price of $48. Asked for fun what it rang up as and came up to that magical $20 price. 

You all have these conspiracy theories. lol.  Maybe, just maybe, someone was tired/lazy and that particular copy didn't get tagged.  The world isn't always out to get you people. 

#11328102 Pokemon Y for $19.99 at Toys R Us on 12/6 -12/7

Posted by dragonjud on 07 December 2013 - 07:55 PM

Just got back from Best Buy.  I walked to the video games section where there was an elderly lady working who didn't know the difference between the 3DS and the Xbox 360 nor did she know where to find the 3DS games, even though that was her assigned section.  She kept asking another associate if she knew if they had Pokemon for the Xbox. :headache:  


The other associate was young enough to know what I was talking about, so she went to the back and got Pokemon Y, and they honored the $19.99 price.  The associate at the register asked if he could keep my ad so he could get a price match too, so I said what the hey.  


Also picked up a $10 PSN card for $9 and the Superman: Unbound special edition DVD for $4.99.  That was the first time I have set foot in a Best Buy store since June, and by the next time I go back into one, Pokemon will be available for the Xbox.  :oldman:

At least it's Bestbuy...Be kind as she's probably a seasonal worker needing the money.

Went to pre-order Gran Turismo 6, and the Gamestop clerk asked me what system I wanted that for...

Hmm, let me think...

#11272002 Xbox One Console Thread (Console is currently in stock as of 12/3 at Amazon)

Posted by dragonjud on 23 November 2013 - 05:08 PM

Only played DR3 for about an hour but I'm digging it so far.  Graphics are not the greatest but the amount of zombies on screen is impressive.  The shoulder buttons on the controller aren't as bad as I first thought.  You use them pretty consistently in DR3 and it's not bothering me at all.


Also played about an hour of Ryse.  It's a lot better than I was thinking it would be.  I can understand why people don't like it, but it's not as bad as it was made out to be.  The executions are going to be performed once you start them (which you have the option of doing or not) even if you mess up so it doesn't punish you in that regard, but it still ends your combo so their is reason to keep trying to get it right.  Graphically it's the most impressive next gen game, but I still need to complete the game.  Killzone looked great in places but was inconsistent throughout the game (not to mention the rain in the game is laughably bad looking).


Also I sold my day one achievement on ebay for $45.  I'm pretty happy about that.


People pay $45.00 to have a message pop up on their screen...

How did we get here?

This a**wipe is also asking for people to sell them their pre-orders for the same items for less money.  So, if you want to deal with this sort of scum that's up to you.

#11090054 The Wonderful 101 (Wii U) $50.83 + Free Shipping @Amazon

Posted by dragonjud on 26 September 2013 - 01:35 PM

Forced Wii-u controls? I'm not sure what that means. I realize this is an opinion but it sounds somewhat uninformed. Dark Souls lacks a proper tutorial.

To Nintendo fanboys everything that could be used as criticism will always be 'user fault', so your comment is but a waste of space.

My 'opinions' happen to also be the opinions of quite of a few reviewers of the game.

I told people to go play the demo, and then read some reviews.  If after doing so, you still feel this game deserves your $50+, then by all means support the developer.  I happen to think that the game is flawed and doesn't deserve anything beyond $30.00.

Posted by dragonjud on 04 September 2013 - 02:33 PM

What a mess!

1. Cannot buy content through my console because there was some sort of error in properly converting my 1700 pts into currency.

2. Go online to try to circumvent error, but they want to use my credit card only.  No option to use my converted points.  Go to check my account, and get another error...


Did they even test this conversion?  It's an utter effing mess right now.
