How much does AC: Rogue (on 360 of course) feel like AC: Black Flag on Xbox One?  I really enjoyed Black Flag and wouldn't mind another game like that, but wonder if Rogue will feel too much like a step down due to it being a 360 game.  I never played Black Flag on 360, so I don't know how similar the two versions were.

Someone mentioned that Dishonored 1 comes free when you purchase Dishonored 2 but I couldn't confirm this.  I seem to recall this might have been a pre-order bonus only.  Can anyone clarify?  I'd like to get Dishonored 1 on PS4 but can wait for a better deal for Dishonored 2 if it comes with the original in some versions, etc.

I think I'll pass on Mad Max then, anything car related holds very little interest for me, wether it's racing, car combat, or car battle upgrade type stuff. Was hoping that it'd be some sort of fallout 4 clone...eh, but it's ok, I'll put that $10 towards something else.

The thing I loved about Mad Max is that the car stuff was just enough to enjoy it, but not so much that it became a chore for the most part.  I get bored with most driving games very quickly, but Mad Max is not really like that and there is a lot of outside the car stuff to do.  To be fair, there are some racing related things that I decided to skip since I got bored with those, but they are side mission things only.  It's definitely worth a shot for anyone who enjoys incidental driving like in GTA type games.  But I totally understand being concerned about too much driving.

I agree. Now explain them the difference between a PS4 Pro and an Xbox Scorpio. Both play at 4K,  have a better frame rate, and can play all current generation games. One costs $399 and another potentially $549. You can spit out that a bunch of technical mumbo-jumbo about how they built it with better silicone. In the end though, they are not going to be able to tell the difference on the poorly calibrated tv at Best Buy. With the major difference in price. I just don't think people would buy it for $150 more. Don't get me wrong as someone who only owns an Xbox One, I would love to pick one up if the price is right. However, I just don't think the mainstream gamer is as dedicated as I am. 

This.  We're to the point that very few people care about extra power because it's so hard to demonstrate the benefit to average people.  It's really just the fringe enthusiast that notice or care.  It's really tough to see much difference even if you have a great TV since most people aren't technically inclined and/or just simply don't care.  I'm still baffled that my kids are fine watching TV on their phone or iPad when a big screen TV is in the next room.  A lot of people just want to sit down and play whatever is convenient and relatively economical.  The one bombshell that you didn't mention is that Sony surely has plenty of room for price cuts up it's sleeve when Scorpio does release, so it won't surprise me if PS4 Pro could be as low as $299 at that point if they feel they need to compete.

Seeing Xbox One backwards compatibility in action causes me to be a little sad every time I see the PS3 section of a flash sale and think about what life could be like in a slightly alternate universe.

Fuck all of you who got the Resident Evil Bundle.

 

Super salty right now.

I got it on the deal and am fairly certain I will never play any of them.  I feel like one of those billionaires smoking hundred dollar bills while you sit in the gutter begging for scraps and it feels glorious!

Looks like a lurker got it. Thanks for the offer though.

Anyone else having issues with Evolve not showing up in the Games to DL?

I've noticed this problem with both Evolve and Project Cars from GWG.  It didn't seem to show up until I actually went to the base game and started a download (and then canceled) of the base game for each.  I tried downloading the other version several times first with no luck.

Far Cry Primal for $49.99, finally! Been waiting for a deal like this! Thanks op!

Not a deal.  I seen it at Gamestop for $47.99 recently.  Ya'll should check them out more often.  Gamestop is where the real deals are.

Modern Warfare Remastered is getting the Variety Map Pack from the original game.

 

Fun fact: it'll cost 15$ while the original cost 10$. L O L.

Rumor has it, you can write a "5" over the zero and Activision will accept your remastered ten dollar bill.

Personally my favorite thing to do is argue about how people spend their free time. It may not effect me in anyway, and I certainly don't have a real opinion on it. But if I can fill up this forum with pointless comments I feel a sense of accomplishment.

I would honestly rather see people bickering here about how others spend their free time than people bickering about politics.

Perhaps the point of watching a Let's Play is so that you can see if it's a game you would like to purchase. Not all games have demos or not everyone participates in game betas to test a game for free before its release.

 

I think it's normal to wonder why it matters to you when there are plenty of logical reasons to watch someone else play a game.

I buy games for backlog collection purposes.  I have neither the time or inclination to play them or watch them be played or really even talk about them for that matter...Now I need to get back to work so I can afford that new release to put into my backlog.

On the Microsoft buy an Oscar movie for $5 and get $5 back, it specifically indicates it gives you a $5 Microsoft Store card back, so if i'm thinking correctly, I can spend my Xbox credit to purchase said movies and even if the store card has a short term expiration date I can just buy more Xbox credit to replace what I spent which will then not have a short term expiration date (since on the store card has the short term expiration date).  Am I thinking this through correctly?  I have a lot of credit and just wondering why I don't get a lot of the movies for essentially free.

Drawn to Death will be out for PS4 on 4/4 for $19.99. I hope there are more people playing this than the single digits I constantly saw in the beta.

 

This game concept seems like it would have made more sense as a single player game.  I hope it works out well and does well, but it seems destined to be forgotten.

Does zombie army trilogy go on sale much?

Not often enough.  I think it was $15 once on one of the big blowout sales and I regret not getting it then.
