I'm very happy with Madden 16. I liked the early access trial, but not enough to buy the game. They have updated it a ton since then. I'm most happy about having the ability to invite friends to draft champions.

Or realize your a idiot and forgot to download it and get excite. At least that's what happened to me.

I thought for sure I downloaded it before, but I didn't.

Mega Coin Squad looks fun except it's one of those local MP games that I would never play because I have no friends...

The single-player mode is really fun, but also really short. When I played at launch there a few framerate problems that were really annoying when trying to beat a level without taking damage. I'd wait for under $5.

January 19th signups for Mortal Kombat X "Enhanced Online Beta" begins. The game already sold well, so I thought they'd just give up on fixing online. I'm happy to see they didn't. The game is really fun offline, but online is sooooo bad.

Nope. XBL is having issues. I can't play any Halo 5 MP, and I read that Destiny is experiencing similar problems.

They better fix this before PvZ 2 beta tomorrow :D

I have been using Xbox (wired) to Windows 10 laptop (wireless) streaming for a couple weeks. First time was at launch and it ran horribly for me. I would have only used it for turn based games like any match 3 gem game without a time limit.

I have been really sick, so I couldn't get out of bed. I also wanted to play Xbox, so I tried it again. Works fantastic. Any type of game runs very smoothly. Maybe once an hour there is a little screen lag for 2 seconds. So far that hasn't been a problem.

Give it another shot if you had a bad experience with it at launch. I'm glad I did.

The issue is there's no standardized way to track delivery of digital goods. You could redeem the codes and then say the code was invalid and dispute the charges (and you'd win, too).


That is what happened to me about 6 or 7 years ago. I sold 2 WOW time cards I got as a gift even though I didn't play WOW. The first one I had no problems with. The 2nd one was bought by the same buyer. Positive feedback left for both, but two weeks later the 2nd one was disputed on Paypal. Already used the money, so my Paypal account was suspended despite still having positive feedback for the sale. I will always send the code physically now.

I gave up on Gone Home on PC after it took too long to put all the items in the bathroom. You don't have to do that to beat the game, but I felt that I had to. Never heard of Oxenfree, but the trailer did look good.

 

Unepic should be live soon. Very fun RPG. I'm trying to beat it on hardest difficulty after playing through it once on easy. Huge difference from easy to hard ++

I highly recommend Unepic. I got a chance to help test it a couple months ago. There are 2 super grindy achievements that really suck(I didn't get them). I had about 3,000 kills after one playthrough and achievements requires 5,000 and 10,000 on the same save. With no new game + that is 5+ hours of grinding. The rest were really easy due to a bug that probably will be fixed by release (sorry I reported the bug).

Don't let 2 achievements stop you from playing a great game. The game doesn't look good from screenshots, but is surprisingly fun. It is an RPG where you play as a present day guy trapped in a fantasy dungeon with no idea how he got there. Story and dialogue is cheesy, but some parts are good. You've got different types of weapons, pets, armor, spells, etc. like most RPGs.

One of my favorite game bosses is in this game.
Spoiler
The other bosses are kind of meh, but still fun.

I'll probably stream it on release day or earlier if I get permission to. Technically I never agreed to an NDA, but after I asked a couple months ago, he said not to share screenshots/videos yet. There should also be a ton of videos online already because it has been on PC for a long time.

I thought it was only for two weeks at launch.

It was free at launch for existing owners. Idk when the upgrade price started or if it is still going.

I think Aliens is still the best movie ever created, so my positive comments about the game may also be clouded. I watch it several times a year and never get sick of it. I can't find anything I don't like about the movie.

Missing the opportunity to have said "but HG was so good that I'll give Lara Croft a GO" and I'm very disappointed in you.


I had to spend 10 minutes trying to avoid that and also I'll bite on Lara.

Polychromatic is fun at first, but quickly gets boring once you learn strategies. The last few achievements I need aren't hard, just super boring. Worth the sale price at least.

For those confused about KI.

The base game is free. This includes access to every mode in the game including multiplayer. You are restricted to one free character that they change every few weeks.

You can purchase characters individually for $5 or buy them in the packs below.

$20 Season 1 Combo Breaker Edition includes all season 1 characters.

$40 Season 1 Ultra Edition ***GWG*** includes all season 1 characters, all season one cosmetic accessories, and Killer Instinct Classic (KI 1 upgraded to include online play).

Season 2 works the same way except you get access to Killer Instinct 2 Classic instead of KI Classic.

There is another pack that includes both seasons, but you probably shouldn't get that with S1 going free.

Season 1 characters are much easier to play because of how simple they are. If you've never played a fighting game before, stick with Jago. He is fighting games 101 basic plus he is the character used in the really good tutorial mode (Dojo). The Dojo will help with any fighting game, so try it out if you're completely new to the genre.
