In Topic: XBL Deals - 2019

The feeling of going from 1080 TV to a 4K HDR Smart TV makes me incredibly eager to get my One X now next week now. \

Same. I got an LG OLED C9 through saved up gift cards and rewards certificates after going 10 years with the same 1080 set, and I'm so glad I upgraded.

 

Booted up Star Wars in 4K on Disney+ and it's like wearing glasses for the first time, you see so many new details.

 

GPU drastically cut down my Black Friday spending, I only picked up a couple games, and am more than happy with my foreseeable backlog.

Do you think it's still over 100 hours to boost?

I think for the average person it's probably going to be between 100-200 hours whereas before it was probably closer to 500+ hours.

It's a very very long time sink TA's estimate is 200 + hours and I'd say that's pretty fair. The problem is some of the characters have ridiculous requirements for their achievements, like do something 100 times that you can only really do a couple of times during a match unless you go into a boosting session specifically for it. Evolve and Titanfall 1 were far easier.

A few months after release, they substantially dropped a lot of the requirements to more manageable numbers. They still take awhile, but a lot of them are complete-able  within 10 matches or less where it used to be 50 or 100 matches per challenge.

Got 100% in titanfall. It was rough and a lot of repetition to grind stuff out. My leaderboard time on the xbox stats page is like 165 hours, and I still have 4 people ahead of me on my friends list.

May have to check battleborn out before it is done. Anyone play it recently and know if it's active? Would I just be wasting time searching for a match constantly? Don't think I'd want to 100% it unless I really like the game, which I don't think will happen.

Haven't played in awhile, but they've updated matchmaking to supplement with bots  which makes finishing the challenges easier. Traffic is pretty light, though I've seen it occasionally pick up at peak times. There are some challenges you're going to want to find a group to work with, but lots of it is manageable solo.

 

Honestly, it's such a shame it was crushed so hard at launch by Overwatch. I think it's a great game that's been overlooked, and the low traffic just smothered it further. It's the only MOBA-style game I've enjoyed and has some great Borderlands humor in the PvE missions. I think I'll make an effort to try and finish it before it dies.

 

Fortunately, its characters will live on as the most laughably forced in cameos to Ready Player One.

Question about the target BOGO get one free

 

so if i price match one of the games will the deal still apply?

I PM'd Control and Borderlands 3 (PS4/Xbox) with Amazon ($44.99) and the cashier checked with like 3 people before he gave it to me. With red card, I walked out paying $28.49 for each one. Seems like it totally comes down to the manager on-shift at the moment. I'll probably  return Control as it will be cheaper on BF, keep 1 BL3 and gift 1 BL3 as they were only $0.50 more than Best Buy's BF price.

Disappointed to report that B2G1 did not apply to any of the clearance games I bought yesterday.
