Played CD3 for a couple of hours this morning, for better or worse it felt like slipping back into a pair of comfortable slippers I hadn't worn for ten years... I'm enjoying the orb hunt, the lock-on combat is simple but fun, the game's doing a good job of slowly introducing new types of areas to clear out... I'm playing AC Odyssey right now and typically wouldn't want to tackle two open-world games at once, but Crackdown feels simple enough to finish quickly without confusing my time in Odyssey.  Yeah, it's not as revolutionary as it could be (or should be after five years), but you know what?  It's not a bad game by any means.

 

It's not a $60 title but it's a great addition to Game Pass and really helps sell that service.  If Microsoft keeps dropping these games (Forza 4, CD3, Sea Of Thieves) every few months, I'm happy to call Game Pass an essential part of the Xbox experience.

As someone with a 1tb data cap, having a 42gb beta for a game I don't plan on playing automatically download is pretty f$#¡%ing irritating.

Solid games. Wasn't excited for SOTTR at all but now that it's on gamepass I'll definitely give it a try. Return to Arkham is also very good. De blob looks fun too.

Seems light in terms of quantity though.

This is a month for quality over quantity I believe... SotTR is a great addition only 5 months after release, the Arkham games are incredible value (controversy over the graphics aside), de Blob is a great platformer and I'm holding out hope that Crackdown 3 will be a blast with friends.

What is up with Hellblade. 2nd time they have discounted the Playstation version by $10 but the XB has not yet been on sale.


It's a short (but great) game, just get a trial of Game Pass and blast through it in a couple sessions.

Not sure if this was mentioned earlier in the thread, but I saw a (targeted?) offer/ad on the dashboard for Game Pass that just said "Play A Game", and apparently playing one Game Pass game will net you a $5 gift card. Nothing to opt into, no way to track it, should just recieve it in the messages in about 4 weeks.

I think the "complete all game pass quests" 500 point bonus is just for the three "earn an achievement/in three genres/earn 21 achievements" quests... They all finish the same day as the bonus and the artwork is the same.

Stupid Question Time: promo right now to get $20 off any new or pre-order game when you trade in a select game. That’s $20 off on top of the trade-in value of the game itself, correct?

Incorrect.  At least if I've understood the discussion on this a dozen times before.  I believe it means those games have a minimum of $20 trade value when put towards a new or pre-order.  So If a game is already worth more than $20, that technically fulfills the promotion.

Well, if there's moles in this thread, just know that you waited too long to release your BF ad... I'm getting in on the Best Buy gift card offer and looks like they're getting my money this year.

That is not a one time offer. I ended up with $40 from it. So make sure to go back and use it some more.

Just be aware the credit will expire in about 90 days I believe, so if you don't like what you see in the BF sale, make sure you find something in the Xmas/New Year sale!

Gotta say, I'm loving Detroit. Definitely the best deal this weekend.

I also picked up Shadow Of The Colossus pre-owned for $12 after all the discounts, and the store gave me a sealed copy, so... Yeah, made out well.


#14078551 Best Buy Black Friday Ad

Posted by davemoseley on 09 November 2018 - 01:33 PM

All this talk of TVs... I discovered a couple years back that if you just want a huge screen for a great relative price, BF is the time to shop.  Otherwise, the last week of January offers the better quality picture at a great size and price.  Why?  Superbowl is right around the corner.

 

If you're debating between an OLED and an LCD and which is going to have better blacks, etc, wait another couple of months - leave Black Friday for the guys who want to show off their washed-out 65" screens they got for $500.

Yeah, but I think the hope is that now it's a dead program with a lot less people still reaping the benefits, maybe they'll forget to turn it off when the prices switch?

For what it's worth, my first pre-order (Ready Player One 4K) just shipped.  I think next is Infinity War, let's see if the order holds until mid-August.
