Picked up variety pack for Garage.

Edit: Built the RC Car. Had fun scaring my cats. The software is loaded with Nintendo charm.

About $50 with GCU. I'm happy with the purchase already.

i don't understand not owning both consoles when you love video games

it would suck to not be able to play God of War or Gears of War

When I was little I used to get all the consoles until the first Xbox. I stuck with Xbox 360 then X1 because that's where my friends were going. Even if a game sucks, it can at least be fun with friends (ex: Colonial Marines and Operation Raccoon City).

Since starting work and getting married, I rarely play multiplayer games. Ended up buying a Switch and PS4. Love all 3 of my console babies. Honestly I probably shouldn't have bought a PS4 or Switch because my X1 backlog is so massive. Now I have a huge PS4 backlog and Switch is starting to increase. I blame CAG and my wife for encouraging me to keep buying games.


Edit: Looking through the new BC games. I've never heard of Breakdown, but it looks fun.

Superhot is a pretty cool game but the "story mode" is really short. I expect the bulk of gameplay revolves around challenges and endless mode though. It is pretty fun.


SUPERHOT is the most innovative shooter I've played in years.

I finished the story mode in one sitting game and was surprised by how short it was. There are a ton of challenges though that are fun. I'm thinking about not doing all the challenges until I can get the

version of the game.

Learned that if you take out the hdmi cable that goes into the PS4, you can plug it into an Xbox One to play Xbox games on a big screen in VR. Probably works for other consoles as well.

I've found, as brickseek has gotten bigger...been less and less accurate so not sure if it has to deal with holding out for "premium" members or what... For instance just the other day for RE7 it was saying 0 "Limited quantities" at 19.xx. Nope, definitely had some and yeah they were definitely 11.xx. Little things sure but they definitely add up.


Brickseek wasn't wrong about there being 0 at 19.xx

What happens when you buy digital copy of game you own physically?

Want to rebuy TF2, but already own physical copy. Will purchasing it, just allow me to launch without disc?

Will I have to transfer saves or anything else?


Saves should still be there. Nothing changes other than you don't need a disc

Hitting the backlog hard in the past few months on both PS4 and XB1. Wife and I play single player games side by side. Right now she's playing AC Origins and I've been knocking out several games. Constantly are talking to each other like an in person party chat, so I don't spend too much time playing multiplayer games anymore. My biggest problem tackling my backlog pre marriage (and before she started playing sp games instead of mp with me), was playing the same multiplayer games over and over again.

On Xbox I am mainly working on FFXV and testing out random games I've acquired to delete or keep to finish.

Keep: Marlow Briggs (surprisingly fun), Prey (own, so have to keep), Vermintide (fun, but I'll probably be playing solo)

Keeping, but on the fence: Skyforge (mmo ugh) , Zombi (start feels better than Wii U) , Your Toy (confusing game)

Delete: Van Helsing 3 (Too complicated for my small brain) , Deadfall Adventures (I picked up the TNT and threw it everywhere for 1t minutes and nothing blew up).

FFXV Assassins Festival ends on the 31st. Still surprised how much Assassins Creed content is in FFXV. Access the content from the main menu under special at any time (although the game recommends after chapter 7).

AC Origins only got a short quest and some Easter eggs related to FFXV.

We just got a PS4 and I've been wanting to get some games for it. Are there any PS exclusives on this list anyone could recommend? I'd love to get some suggestions, particularly something the kids could play.
-B

.

I recently got a PS4 as well. I'm picking up The Order and Little Big Planet 3.

That's You would probably be fun with kids or a group of friends if there are enough smart phones for everybody. From what I saw, a picture of a player will show up on screen then ask everybody to doodle over that picture. For example draw what this person would look like if stranded on an island for 20 years.

Edit: Holy crap LBP3 has a ton of dlc

Reminder that Far Cry 2 on consoles has a glaring problem with saves. The PC version has quicksave anywhere, consoles only let you save at specific locations. This would be fine, except enemies regenerate constantly and the game is based on survival and limited resources. So enemies respawn and you run low on things, or you spend 45 minutes raiding a compound only to die and lose all your progress.

I remember wanting to love it many years ago, but getting fed up with it.


I recommend getting a golden weapon asap. Easy to find with a guide and they don't break or jam.

SFV Arcade Update is what the game needed at launch. New arcade mode is really fun.

Is this the first time FC Instincts Predator has ever been on sale?!


I'm really hoping this becomes BC soon. My favorite Xbox 360 game and the best FC game for multiplayer. FC2 had good competitive multiplayer, but lacked the charm of FCIP. 3 and 4 were just sad compared to 1 and 2. The multiplayer amazing thanks to the map editor that kept the game alive much longer than it should have. Had the charm of Halo 2 custom games with the community creating their own game types. Sadly this kind of fun will probably never happen again thanks to party chat. One of my favorites was Xombies

Spoiler


The puzzle maps/obstacle courses were the absolute best. I even made a few myself that I'm quite proud of, but they are nowhere near as good as the best map makers. Some puzzle maps were co-op and required you to play them with a partner, but most were solo. Dying is very easy in this game, so if you died after playing a course map for several hours, it was very disheartening. On the other hand, finishing a course map after several hours felt better than unlocking an achievement.

If I didn't already put my saves in the cloud in anticipation for FCIP going BC, I might hook up the 360 just to do so. Shouldn't get my hopes up, but I really want FCIP to be BC.
