I have 2 Elite series 2 and I think 9 Series 1 Elites...

I think we all need some clarification on this...

 

Do you run a half-way house for gamers or are you just an obsessive collector?  Or are you that kid from elementary school who always told me his family had six Lamborghinis at home. :)

So all of Halo's store bundles have been leaked, and the cost of everything for Season 1 is over $1000, and you have to use real money for all of it.
https://www.reddit.c...ou_will_have_to
As one of the comments points out, we used to pay $60 for both the campaign and the MP, so just because the MP is F2P, this is far from justified.
I was hoping the monetization would be better than Halo 5, but clearly not. Chasing that OW money, I guess.

I think it's a little silly for people to get upset at the cost of pretend outfits for their pretend world.  Somehow, I also believe that $1k is ridiculous to charge people for pretend clothes.

I really regret making PS3 my console of choice during that era since so many games are purchased for a console that i'll never use again.  Had I owned them on Xbox, I'd have many more games I could access right now (including new ones added today).

oh hell yeah I will absolutely be rebuying Manhunt, Max Payne 1&2, Red Dead Revolver and Star Wars ep 3.... on sale of course, but dammit I'll rebuy them!

I wish these had achievements.

Me waiting for GWG announcements

Based on GWG lately, i'd rather just have a burrito.

Those speakers are underpowered. That's why it's cheap. You'll need an amp to push them puppies. I have a Denon-AVR-X3200W with 105W per channel and it's still underpowered.

Am I missing something?  What speakers did he reference?  I only saw receiver info.  Also, any standard receiver is fine for most people (referring to power per channel).  Unless someone lives in a very large home or likes bleeding from their ears and permanent hearing loss, 75W per channel is plenty.   An X3200 is really nice, though.  And Denon is a really good choice for the price range.

This is a really bad attitude when there are a ton of great games on GamePass. I can’t believe how much money I’ve actually saved thanks to GamePass. Out of the almost 400 games on it, probably at least 100 are good to great games. And plenty of day one games like Flight Simulator, Octopath Traveler, Hades, MLB The Show 21, The Outer Worlds and even something like Dodgeball Academia, which may have not been a big name but is a great game.

I bet there’s also at least a 100 games with more than 80 on Metacritic - probably more. I’ve found more good games than bad personally. And discovered fun games that I wouldn’t have.

Anyway, I’ve played plenty of GREAT games on GamePass. But to each their own.

I think it's unfair to say it's a bad attitude.  Gamepass is good for some and it's not good for others. As long as someone has made a real attempt to think about it (rather than just being negative, etc.), then they've formed a valid opinion.  Personally, I might tend to agree.  Gamepass is a good value, but I find myself only playing games certain games I've purchased and not really exploring what's there for "free."  It's a good enough value that the few i've played on Gamepass probably even out my costs.




#14413401 Play Date - Taking preorders starting today/now

Posted by WNYX585AM on 31 July 2021 - 02:59 AM

Yeah I mean the way I look at it, if you don't want one don't preorder one, right? No sense in wasting your time clogging up a thread with negative comments when all you're doing is reposting a comment about hipsters. Like, be more original and do more research. I got my preorder in, and I'm looking forward to giving it a whirl. Like another poster said, I've spent more on things I use less / don't use. I don't knock things I don't try or don't personally like. There are people who will enjoy this. 20k orders in 20 mins. I am one of them. Panic said this is NOT for everyone, and that is FINE. They weren't trying to make the next Vita / Steam Deck.

I don't see why a thread can't have both negative and positive comments on the item.  I don't see anyone personally attacking anyone else for their opinion or decision.  If you want a thread about this (or any other item) with no negative comments, go to a fan site.  Otherwise, a website dedicated to gamers and those gamers being cheap is sure to have criticisms for what many see as an over-priced item with limited use, limited function, poor design, and short life expectancy.

I have the disc version of the game and have grabbed a bunch of the DLC and from the article it states...

 

Here's hoping that they'll send a code so I don't have to worry about using the disc version if I ever play it again.  

This is really weird.  Why do this?  The disc will still work after end of life, right?  That's a lot of good will they are putting out there.  I guess they are still counteracting some of the negativity the game got and also prepping for the next one.

Not a good idea. They're just bloating costs for existing subscribers. You would have to invest major bank in quality permanent exclusives to entice anyone who isn't already using Netflix.
The worst part is they already have a good roadmap for "gamifying" Netflix in the form of Bandersnatch.

Agreed.  I hope it's an add-on service so those of us who have no interest will not have to foot the bill.  They really should just partner with Microsoft or Sony and offer some sort of combined subscription with Gamepass or PS Now (or even Google) and use someone else's established library and streaming tech rather than building from scratch.

I could never play without rumble. I swap batteries as soon as I lose it, it tanks my performance in FPS's when I don't have it.

My kids actively turn rumble off - just like they turn off sound or are fine watching a big cinematic movie on their iphone.  I am from an old school of gaming (and entertainment) when I was AMAZED to hear real music (MIDI i'm pretty sure) coming out of a PC or thought it was cool when the rumble pack was introduced to me at a Blockbuster kiosk.  I want to turn up my speakers to hear full surround sound and the booms of the bass.  These improvements/enhancements make games (and movies) that much greater.  When something can be more immersive or enhanced, I want to experience it that way.

I feel like GWG has become like me at any party.  I'm there and they appreciate my presence, but no one really cares.  And if I didn't show up, no one would really miss me.

Just got back from taking the family to Hershey Park, what's the word this week? I see a guy selling outriders for $25 is it worth a purchase now or are some of the complaints I've seen on reddit still relevant?

Hershey Park > Outriders

 

 

Seriously, though, Outriders is fine and fun.  It got a little monotonous to me and I haven't gone back to it, but it was fun - especially for a Game Pass freebie.

welp having a wireless headset on when you're at the mass effect launcher crashes your game. They're working on a fix but the workaround is to not turn on your headset until after you select the specific mass effect game on the launcher.

Good to know that extensive testing went into this game.  This game is sure to be flawless otherwise.

Can someone explain why you want to auto-redeem points?  Do the points expire?
