My game of the year choice is easy, browsing GamePass for something to play. Yes I first started it last year but this year I have had even more fun playing this game with all the additions to the service.

That shuffle option sounds great until I remember that I probably have less than 10% of my available library downloaded and of that only about 5% of my downloaded ones are updated to the current version. Randomly choosing a title to watch a download progress bar for does still sound like more fun than my normal plan of spending 30 minutes browsing my collection and giving up before playing anything at all.

This is part of the reason why even though I got Fallout 76 for free at launch, I never jumped in (the other is because I naively believed they'd actually add enough SP to flesh out the game experience). I have major ADD + OCD for getting distracted by & feeling compelled to complete "all" side quests which can be frustrating as hell.

One of my primary things I predict will piss me off about this game if I try to get into it is apparently inventory slots are arbitrarily limited which seems to be purposeful to drive collector types (like me) towards the $99 annual membership fee. Fuck that.

Is it AT ALL possible to simply fly through the main story of this game (without getting caught up too much in collecting/crafting trinkets & other bullshit & constantly being annoyed by limited inventory space)?

If you can get into the right mindset from the very beginning that you just want to finish the story and don't obsess over getting everything and top end gear it should be a decent ride.

People talking about playing fun games, while I'm over here in the corner still playing Fallout 76 like I need to punish myself for something bad I've done. Send help.

Yeah I didn't enjoy the base building mechanic in Fallout 4 at all, and assumed that what most of Fallout 76 was going to be.

Talking smack about Fallout 4 is fun, but there's no time for that right now. There's a settlement that needs your help, I'll mark it on your map.

My 4 year old likes watching me play Fallout 76. I spend 90% exploring, looting and managing inventory but he always wanders in during the couple of minutes where I am violently murdering hideous creatures. Stupid no pausing online games making me a horrible parent. :(

Really, you'll get your monthly dose of disappointment soon enough.

We need to get this GWG disappointment dose as soon as possible so it doesn't conflict with the regularly scheduled disappointment of the next sale announcement.

There's also a standard version bundle for $17.00 that includes a loot box of Fallout themed trinkets, an alleged $20 value of its own:


That loot box better be made out of canvas or I am going to be so pissed.

I have an 8 bay NAS with these 10TB shucked western digital from the black Friday best buy deal last year. The space is fantastic, but I upgraded these from 6TB reds, and these drives are noisy af. They all "knock" when idle at different intervals so it's like you hear the noise every 5 seconds or so. If this NAS didn't sit in my office it wouldn't be so bad, but it is what it is, a worthy compromise for 60TB+ of data hoarding goodness.

You know there is such a thing as having too much porn, right?

I'm just going to pretend that the free Too Human game was included as part of the mixpot instead. And the final verdict is that the freebies still sucked.

So Void Bastards is a weird game for me. Having a fun time playing it, but I'm not really bothering to progress yet. I refuse to accept that I can't fully clear every ship and collect every item so I die like all the time. But since you get to come back slightly different it doesn't even feel like a set back. Nice little time waster just screwing around and seeing what randomness the dice roll will come up with next. Someday I may actually play it the right way, probably when we find out it is leaving gamepass.

A split would be ridiculous. I demand that we arbitrarily perma ban 50% of the users so that a lasting peace and prosperity can be achieved.

New Xbox one s fortnite edition


Pretty dope color if you ask me.

I always like to check what is included in these bundles to see what I might be able to cash out if I sell the crap I don't want. "Fortnite Save the World sold separately". I thought this was supposed to go free like a year ago already and yet they still don't even bother including it in an exclusive bundle.

Because it’s horrible to help people with a sale? One that is actually related to Xbox?

What a dick move taking extra time to put in links.

It might be that you posted the link for Get Hard 2x. You need to be more subtle when you demand that people Get Hard.
