Been lurking the last few days because my phone doesn’t like to keep me logged in, but wishing that best to 2ndopp along with everyone else. Also, definitely bummed Apple isn’t getting Xcloud but for now I’ll keep playing on the old Note 5 my buddy gave me when I need to. Think I, gonna get that Switch-like controller and a cheaper prepaid Android for Christmas so I can do some longer sessions while hanging out with the baby (hoping that combo is easier to hold than the controller with the clip). 
land thanks to the poster who mentioned Marathon being on sale. Huge Bungie fan since Halo but never got that on 360, but now that I can use credit and buy on my phone it was a no brained.

Rocket Arena joins the EA Access vault on july 31st


It’s also free to play this weekend with Gold. It’s in the pic on the homepage/store page, but when I click the link it shows last week’s titles. If you search for the game, though, it’ll let you install it. Worth a try for free I suppose.

HEY SHOPPING NEWS!

So really nothing changed for most of us, but now I won't be able to go to the movies and video games palette in the frozen food aisle at my local Wal-Mart on Black Friday and say my annual joke of "Man, look at all the cool deals!" I'm guessing Best Buy and Target are going to follow suit as well.


You and your puns will be fine as long as you shop on Friday. This is only for Thanksgiving Day, when many WM stores were open the last several years. Any sales have been starting late Thursday night/early Friday morning recently, but those will be Friday at some point I would imagine. I just really hope they don’t go back to the old “open the doors and let people get trampled,” but I have a good feeling they’ll have a better idea than that (I work for WM btw).

Anyone else notice how if you want to buy Steep this week, they’ll legit *pay you* to buy The Crew as well?
Steep $9.89
Steep and The Crew $8.99
Checked the links (thanks as always, Bloomy) and it’s for real. Weird.

Add me to the Thank You list for Pirate’s Curse - bought it last week when it was on sale so I could support WF and also to have it in my library. I played and 100% it when it was on GP but I loved it that much. Half Genie Hero is very good as well, feels like a natural next step after PC, bigger levels, more backtracking, more transformations, etc. I’m looking forward to the new one, too - kinda surprised this one is free since the new one is out but I guess they’re hoping it increases interest and doesn’t take away play time.
Also super excited to finally try No Man’s Sky. I’ve been *kinda* interested since it was first announced, and the more updates they’ve done the cooler it looks. If we can find time with the baby, maybe the fiancé and I can try it co-op.

Sweet, finally grabbed the Costume Pack for Shantae. All DLC acquired on sale and no more being upset over the complete edition being cheaper than everything piecemeal :)

Thanks as always, Bloomy.

Dang, for a second, I thought you were playing Halo on an iPad with a PS controller and I was wondering how you managed that. lol.

That’s exactly what it is haha. I have the XCloud preview on iOS - for which the only game available is Halo MCC, and I had my PS4 controller hooked to my iPad because I was playing with the PS4 console sharing/streaming thing while relaxing in another room, so I figured I’d try it out in Halo. Played 1 game of Firefight, worked well enough. Just super weird having that different layout while slaying some Covenant.

Are we still sharing our gaming setups?

Totally joking - will post the real one at some point, but couldn’t resist sharing this slightly cursed image while I lie in bed holding my newborn trying to get a little bit of #Halo in.

 

Also, am I a bad gamer if I’ve never beaten a single Assassin’s Creed game? Between stupid sales and GWG I own about 10 of them I think (including the side scroller ones) but have yet to complete any. Oh well.

Pikuniku was great.  Really liked the soundtrack in the game too.  The only tough achievement is the rhythm game and I think it was extra hard for me because I don't have the buttons memorized like I do on PlayStation, but was still able to get it though.

 

Also finished Gato Roboto tonight.  What a fantastic little game.  They really nailed the 8 bit metroid vibe.  I really hope they plan to make more games in the series.  Don't think I'm going for the 1000 in that one though, the speed run and no health upgrade achievements seem like too much work for their own good.  I also missed 2 health upgrades in my playthrough so I'd have to replay the whole thing again for the 100% one too.

 

I started Pikuniku but didn’t get too far. Might pick it up again at some point. I did beat Gato Roboto yesterday as well though, and enjoyed the hell out of it. Very fun, simple Metroid-Mega Man mashup. Just my speed, too - enough difficulty that it wasn’t a total cakewalk but not so frustrating that I want to put it down for good. I also missed a few power ups - I did read the computer message at the end about the Point of No Return, but figured I’d just beat the campaign anyway and go from there. Kinda sucks that you can’t go back and finish up collectibles afterward, but I get it. Only took about 5 hours to complete, also, so definitely not opposed to going back at some point. You’re right about the speed run/no health runs though; I looked up how to do them, and didn’t actually watch the YT videos but just the thought of running and gunning and some of those boss fights again is making me not too excited to try those. Maybe someday.

Can anyone tell me where to find the Bleeding Edge Microsoft Rewards punch card before I download and start the game on my Xbox One?

 

On the Rewards app on console, the top part where it has your quests (like the weekly click-Bing-achievements, etc), there should be a button for Show All - click that, mine was at the bottom.

GGP, what kind of coffee table is that/where’d you get it? That’s an awesome setup and would be perfect for my fiancé and me. We have a table with two cabinets on the sides that we stash stuff in, but of course the controllers and everything else usually end up scattered across the top anyway, and this seems like a great solution.

Thanks for all the laughs and support folks. Mom and baby are doing well, recovering separately for the time being but both moving as well as can be expected. And the baby’s name is not disease-related in any way, so you don’t have to worry about that.

Congrats! A girl? So her name is Link then?

(Actually very funny so thanks. Also, if mom had her way she might’ve gone with Linkle!)

Congratulations!!!!

 

Going to have a heck of a story for her when she gets older what was going on in the world the day she was born.

 

Haha right? We’ve been joking because mom was born after her parents decided to go on a Baja ride through the woods to induce (she’s from the boonies) and I was born in the middle of a HUGE blizzard that shut down NYC, so the baby just had to go and one-up both of us!  :whee:

After 2 days of sitting in the hospital waiting for my fiancé to dilate the appropriate amount with no success, we’re having a c-section today, so I’ll be off welcoming Baby Girl Ziggy into the world for a little while. I hope everyone continues to stay safe and keep the deals flowing. Stay positive and be smart. Thanks for being an awesome place to spend some time on the Internet.
