you guys think this sale sucks? i think it's pretty awesome compared to most of what xbox usually discounts, tbh. i already own most of the stuff i want, but battleblock, red dead, dark souls for $5? blood dragon for less than 5? that is like 100 hours of AAA gaming for less than $20

 

dust and motocross madness are 2 of the best xbla games ever made and they'd cost like $7.50 for both. shit that list of games i posted hits on like 5 different genres, with top notch qualities in each for about $25 total. how's that not a great sale? i guess we already own all the good shit so we're jaded

 I'll never get this. Some of the worst full games I've played still gave me more than the best XBLA games. Just don't understand, to each his own, but I can't see it.

well, at least a crappy 3 hour xbla game will give you all its diversity in 3 hours. a crappy AAA game you will barely be out of the tutorial in 3 hours. if a game isn't fantastic i'm sooo unlikely to play more than 5 hours nowadays considering every 2 weeks i've got an new xbox game for free, a few psn games for free, probably a dozen pc games i paid about $4 for.

Lol, I hate it too. But as long as Humble remains the most cost efficient way to get quality games, I'll buy it. I'm not going to pay more somewhere else because I hate one aspect of the company.

bbbbut we can all make humble change their ways if we all stop giving them our $1 and instead going and paying $10 for worms golf on steam

 

c'mon guys we gotta stick to our guns, i'm tired of the man keeping me from giving away 25 cents worth of content to my penniless friends




#11180125 Humble Weekly Sale - PWYW - Daedalic adventure games - New Beginning, Whisper...

Posted by SonicXtreme on 31 October 2013 - 07:31 PM

I like the Worms games, and now I own all of them. Although sadly, I already owned half of them and all of the Alien Breed games. $1 for 3 games isn't bad, but I would rather be able to do something with the games I already owned prior to purchasing the bundle.

 

then don't buy the bundle and buy all the games separately on steam.

 

you won't do that because it's still a great deal most weeks even if you own a game or two. the point of the humbles is mostly charity anyway so honestly i don't see the problem with forcing some people to pay a dollar instead of copping their friends extra key of a game. like if you payed full price for the games it'd be a valid complaint but most weeks even if you want one stinking game from the pile it still ends up way cheaper to buy a bundle for a dollar than buying that game. so IMO people are just acting entitled. enjoy the years you had when it wasn't this way, but there's nothing wrong with them changing it imo

 

maybe they will sell a few less BTAs because of the change but whatever that's their choice, and your conscious decision to beat the average or not, no harm no foul

i bought all the halo 3 dlc cos i'm a tool

 

i hate discs for impulse games like that and i haven't even played halo in a looong ass time but i have a lot of credit left, and honestly every week it gets harder for me to find things to spend it on due to 1) me already owning almost everything i give a shit about on the service coupled with 2) anything that's on PC i'd probably rather get on steam unless there's some kind of advantage to having it on xbox (ie more multiplayers online, split screen) so i bought them knowing full well that all i wanna play is GTA so i won't touch it for at least a long ass time, lol

btw, i will be doing an experiment in the next few days, i will post the result if anybody is interested, since i cannot find a conclusive answer online

 

when my console got banned, there were many games i once had on it but had deleted to make space. now that it is banned, there is no reason to have online games like happy wars on it, so there is more free space. so i am wondering if i redownload a game i owned prior to being banned and move it to the banned console, if the license will still be on that console/hd. i can find guesses online but no one who has actually tried. so i will download an xbla game and a GOD game i had previously deleted, put it on USB, and see if the license still exists on banned console even though the game is deleted. this way i could reclaim a few games i deleted before onto the old console before i give it to a friend. i have no idea if it will work but it is worth trying.

 

also damn f1 2013 got put on GOD fairly quick, but i don't think i'd want it cos i got 2012 on PC for like $8 a few weeks ago

 

alsoalso can you play ascend : hand of kul with a friend? or is it like that dark souls coop where you cannot choose who u play with? is it fun from the get go or is it very slow to get into (with gta around i don't rly wanna spend time on a game that takes 10 hours to get to where you're powerful enough for it to be fun)

well my friends i tried both arcade games and GOD games redownloaded to my profile to copy to my banned system, games i used to have on the banned system but deleted them, and none of them worked :(. so when your console is banned you get to keep all the digital content still on the HD, but there is no way to recover other games that you had on there but deleted before it got banned, it does not work

Has 2K13 been modded-up w/ new rosters and stuff yet?

i bought the game last week for $4, immediately got a roster with anthony bennet all the rookies and the next 3 draft classes w real pics, like 30 jerseys for each team, graphics boost, 2k14 can suck it until it's $3 in a few months

Well crap. Good thing I haven't used the dollar thing much then, . Guess I'll have to give up on using it altogehter  if that's going to be the case 

 

Urg I hate how the bulk of their sales are for Gold memebers only. I don't really play online multiplayer so it's stupid to have to pay them to get a discount for the dlc of the week.

but you can use internet explorer if you have a gold subscription man! the value of having the entire internet accessible in your home :P

"deny access to the games"... Thats like saying HEY you snuck into this movie theater and watched this movie! Well we are just gonna tell you to close your eyes. You seem to not understand... The game is ON YOUR HARD DRIVE, with full ability to play it. They can deny access to the ONLINE, but not the OFFLINE. It is reasonable to assume you would be banned from a theater for sneaking in over and over, even if the door was unlocked, and you saw a bunch of OTHER people doing it. Microsoft made the decision when they banned the people they did "We no longer want your buisness". They make MASSIVE money, if people get banned and decide "oh well I will show them! No more buying from them anymore" it really doesn't hurt them.

they obviously don't have the money to hire competent computer programmers who can keep their games from being accessed by thousands of users for free, so i think they do need some more money. unless they truly prefer to pay people to sit around and ban accounts of customers and lock them out of hundreds of dollars of their content instead of spending that money to fix their own clearly broken infrastructure.

 

regardless if you think the bans are 'fair' for some asenine reason, the judgement is all over the place as i said. some users a console ban, some lose their main GT, and there's no order to it at all. NONE. MS clearly lacks a unified infrastructure and rule system. it's like arresting 10 people for shoplifting, putting them in a circle around a blindfolded guy with a shotgun and letting him dole out justice. the company's right hand has no idea what the left hand is doing. that's not the kind of companies i want to help support in any business in life.

 

sure my money lost won't hurt MS in any appreciable wa,y but if i start spending all my gaming money on valve's service i'll surely have a lot more money in my own pocket. and that's one thing i can thank MS for, making that an easier decision.

console banning makes great sense.... force people to get a xbox one at launch

i think its insane anyone would do this

 

but i'm sure some people will keep drinking the kool aid. personally when a company gives me the middle finger i write them off for life and tell friends to do the same. yes we did something wrong but a ban is a straight up silly punishment when they have the ability to deny access to the games and just suspend your gold for a month or two. the company does not respect the consumer at all. especially considering how some may get no punishment, some a console ban, and some like tyler lose even their main GT. no consistency or order to it, it's just random chaos.

 

that said i still have money in my account so i hope citadel goes on sale one day before they randomly decide it's time to axe me

Certainly seems like the bans have slowed down. Haven't seen much today.

that would be nice, but i think it has more to do with the fact that i really doubt the people who push the buttons work on the weekends.
