#13470908 XBL Deals - DwG: DA:I GOTY, Just Cause 3, KOF13, Deathsmiles, Risen, more |...

Posted by BobbyTastic on Today, 05:29 AM

Still waiting for those 360 deals, Major...

 

Xbone deals are garbage, went ahead and picked up Akai Katana.

 

Pleasantly surprised by the lack of debate discussion in here as opposed to everywhere else on the internet. Well done.  :beer:

 

Where was this talk when I posted a couple times earlier this week? I have no problems spending that kinda money on a short game as I spent $11 on The Park. Hell, I've paid $14 to watch a movie at the theater on Friday night and that's a 90 minute experience as well.

I guess I'm just sour from the bare-bones experience and I'm not about to play it multiple times to "get" certain things. Too much in the backlog and I don't even game on PC anymore

I don't know about anyone else, but I must have glossed over those posts. In general, I forgot that people not on Steam might not know exactly how garbage Dear Esther is. Sorry for those who got suckered by that discount and bought it expecting a game worth $8.

 

Bobby you better reinvent your quote game, Ubichu is stepping in on your turf. You know what you have to do ese.

 

 

 

Blood In Blood Out

Hey mang, I don't have to do nothing. My quote game will continue speaking for itself. :mrgreen:

 

Microsoft Rewards(formerly Bing Rewards) has a deal going on right now til 10/24 where you get a $5 xbl code for 3500 points which I believe is roughly equivalent to the promo they ran a couple months ago that everyone liked.

I'm pissed because I bought 2 $5 rewards early this morning in preparation for tonight. Should I bother contacting Bing for some sort of credit reimbursement or is that just asking for a ban?

 

Of course, the promotion ends before 9/30 when my RE4 and Recore points will be deposited. FML.

The points are separate from Xbox Rewards. Also I don't think it ends before 9/30?

Anyone play the Duke Nukem Clone DLC?  I'm thinking of making DNF the next bad game I play and then say it's not as bad as people say just to be different.  

It's better than the base game in every way. Not saying much, but still.

 

The other DLC is entirely MP stuff, so you can skip it.




#13468737 $30 Toward Gears of War 4 with Trade In (Best buy)

Posted by BobbyTastic on 25 September 2016 - 06:03 AM

It's the best flip for just bestbuy. You can get almost $30 each for both Siege and Forza right now at Gamestop. 

 

 

and I just traded Rainbow six at Lamestop today for $27 after bonus :wall:

I didn't say that it was better than GameStop's. ;)




#13468730 $30 Toward Gears of War 4 with Trade In (Best buy)

Posted by BobbyTastic on 25 September 2016 - 05:58 AM

Am I reading it right that I could trade one of those games for $20 and not have to get Gears?

Correct.

 

Siege is probably the best flip out of all those titles by far, not sure what Forza 6 is worth these days.

Re: Whether Microsoft will revoke copies or not.

 

This actually depends on how Microsoft is being paid by NVIDIA for the Gears codes (you didn't think they were just giving them to NVIDIA for free or paying NVIDIA, did you?)

 

Now, if NVIDIA pays Microsoft per GPU sold with this program, then Microsoft has a financial incentive to revoke (as people are fucking them out their GPU sale cut and not getting it from them directly).

 

However, if NVIDIA pays Microsoft upfront for codes (on their end to apply to eligible accounts)/activations, then Microsoft already got their money, so they have much less incentive to revoke current copies. Clearly Microsoft is okay with the idea of selling copies of Gears 4 cheap to NVIDIA (is this because the game sucks, they don't expect it to sell well or they're trying to sell Xbones/push W10, who knows), so it's not like they see every activated code as a lost $60 sale.

 

Notice that it's NVIDIA who jumped to shut down these codes (requiring proof of purchase and such), and Microsoft is so far not involved.

 

I mean this sort of glitch has happened similarly before (though the games often cost a penny or $1) through Newegg (for NVIDIA AND AMD) and so far not a single copy has been revoked but unactivated codes were. This leads me to believe whatever contract they have set up, the publisher (in this case, Microsoft) is taken care of financially in these situations, otherwise I can't see why direct revokes wouldn't have been issued in any case thus far.

 

Of course even if it's not Microsoft, someone lost a lot of money from these free copies of Gears going out. I would imagine NVIDIA would hold Amazon responsible (which is the right call, imo), just as I imagine Newegg was held responsible for the previous debacles (as they should have been).

Yeah, the whole thing is really shady.

 

Even I wouldn't feel right selling any of these codes, anyone who sold them is a real piece of shit and I feel bad for anyone who got suckered.

 

The risk for getting one for yourself though is minimal, for what it's worth.

Don't tell me the political talk is starting in here already. November's still a month and a half away.  :wall:

 

October GWG

Edit: Darby'd

Once again the Xbone line-up is solid-ish, and the 360 line-up is crap I already have, digitally too. 

 

Feel bad for my bro though, he's only bought 2 Xbone games digitally and both have went GWG (Goat Simulator, and he bought Super Mega Baseball when it was on sale in August). At least it only cost him his $10 "whoopsie" Fallout credit.

 

Most excited for The Escapists, that game still hasn't seen a bundle on PC. Hoping October's Humble Monthly will include it now.

 

Can finally play Xbox again after 2 months of being out of the country. Gold ran out, but hopefully I can get more this weekend.

Sad to see Project Spark gone.

Shadow Lords mode that just came out for Killer Instinct has a lot of content. Watched a stream last night where a dev said the difficulty is getting nerfed. You collect/craft guardians and items that buff your fighters with specific powers. You have to prepare for and slow down the arrival of Gargos by defeating other enemies.

Welcome back fellow Bob. :bouncy:

 

Shadow Lords is great. Lots to do, lots to unlock, and lots of achievements to get. Good to hear about the difficulty nerf, I've read a ton of complaints (the preview Shadow Lords build we got to test was on the easier side, but this is maybe a bit too far). I think having high-level guardians and equipment really helps (and probably why they buffed him so much), as I was able to steamroll Gargos well enough despite him having all his extra powers. I think part of the problem is just that the AI is so seemingly inconsistent in difficulty, even on Normal. They probably need to work on refining it as a whole.

 

RIP Project Spark  :-({|=

 

But Doritos Crash Course was awesome. Had so much fun with both of those games.

RIP Crash Course 2  :-({|=

 

Really wish they'd bring it back for BC, I never got to finish it.

 

As far as Death Star dlc being lopsided i feel the same about Walker Assault from the main game i bought it from red box 2 weeks ago and out of about 70 matches the defenders only won twice smh.

I think Supremacy and Walker Assault somewhat stack the odds in favour of the Imperials, but really, it's just a matter of getting a Rebel team that's slightly better than the Imperial team. That, and to find 2 people competent enough to man the airspeeders at the end, as they can one-shot Walkers relatively easily.

 

Oooooooooo Major ! One BC title ? You have to finish the job and release the other Taito classics for BC !

It's a CoD title, they have to make a big deal of it so I'll blame Activision for the low output this week. Next week will probably be better if Spencer's teasing isn't too premature.

 

New preview program update just went out...looks like it has achievement rarity 

 

Is it me or did this patch download/install REALLY slowly?

 

Rarity is neat even if they're basically copying TrueAchievements. Like Frisky said, whole numbers was a mistake, though it does make seeing a 0% achievement really funny.

 

Just got the warthog for Forza Horizon 3 so, they're still sending them out it seems.

Yep. Got mine today after my brother and dad got theirs like a week ago. My other brother is still waiting though, which is funny because he's the biggest Forza fan out of all of us. I'm sure everyone will get their code before next Tuesday.




#13465922 Best Buy Deal of the Day: Save on Deus Ex, SFV, MGSV, Mighty No. 9, RBI 16

Posted by BobbyTastic on 22 September 2016 - 09:58 AM

PSA: Buying the PS4 version of Mighty No 9 should get you the Ray and Retro Hero DLCs for PS4, and a digital copy of the game for PS4, PS3 and (whenever the Fuck they decide to release it) the Vita versions.

 

I'm not sure if it's a decent flip to GameStop like it was during the last sale ($7.70 in cash, meaning you've spent about $5 including tax and you can keep all the cool physical stuff like the artbook and poster), but there you go.

Rising Star Games published the 360 version of Dodonpachi Resurrection on Xbox Live in Europe. The 360 Reddit thread is reporting that the game is on sale for 50% off this week in Europe, but it was never released on Live in North America, so we only got the sales on Akai Katana and Deathsmiles. :(

Thanks for pointing this out. I also remembered Deadly Premonition was published by Rising Star, hence the recent sale on it.

 

For what it's worth, Dodonpachi Resurrection is coming to Steam next month, so that's an option to play if you only have a NA 360.

#13465045 Humble Megathread - Deep Silver - Capcom - Comics & Manga

Posted by BobbyTastic on 21 September 2016 - 05:42 AM

If you plan on playing RCT2, I highly recommend getting OpenRTC2.

 

https://openrct2.org/

 

It makes it run on modern systems, and even includes multiplayer.

 

 

I did. Supposedly someone got a key for paying 1 cent, but of course I paid a dollar so I can't confirm if that's true.

I have both a bundle page at $1, and one for a penny. The $1 page has a key, the penny one does not.

 

Now, this could be because the $1 page is claimed by my account and the penny one is not, but I doubt it.

MysterD threw in one dollar on this bundle.

BobbyTastic is concerned about MysterD's use of the third person.

 

 

I'm interested in Prison Architect. 

I don't think the change in your username colour is going to be very helpful in your pursuit.

 

 

Bobby?

Was waiting for that. :bouncy:

At least we successfully summoned Booby with this pizza deal talk.

 

CAG urban legend: I hear that if you look into a pizza pan and chant his name three times, Booby will appear to ask you for a loan.

:rofl: Just wanted to say this is the second funniest thing I've read/heard today.

 

Sometimes I miss you guys. Sometimes.

Are these ROW keys?

Yep.

 

These titles are part of the 2 for $10 + 10% for prior customers.

Just getting ahead of the competition. The value will bounce back up once the sale ends. :bouncy:

I just posted this in the free XBL thread, but figured I'd crosspost here for visibility.

 

 

So I was just searching for The Maw on the Xbox store to see if I owned any of the DLCs since I'm too lazy to turn on my Xbone, and found 'Splosion Man is free for Gold members for some reason.

I haven't seen this posted anywhere else so consider it a CAG exclusive.  ;)
