#13334456 XBL Deals - 2016, Part 1

Posted by Techsticles on 19 May 2016 - 04:19 PM

I would guess that the rest of the "coming soon" 360 digital downloads on Amazon are coming to BC also.


That's the only reason I would see for MS releasing them that way at this point in the 360's life cycle.

For reference, those coming soon 360 digital titles are:


Burnout Revenge

Crackdown 2

Dragon Age 2

Fable Anniversary

Fight Night Round 4


Skate 2

The Xbox One sales suck, but I am tempted by a few of the 360 titles. I may gamble and hope for BC at some point.


Injustice $5

Soul Calibur 5 $3.75
Soul Calibur 2 $5
-Supposedly Future BC-
-Already BC-
I bought Tekken Tag Tournament 2 last time it was on sale for $5. That was BC briefly and hopefully it comes back. It played very well on the One.

They fixed it now.

Supposedly if you have Left 4 Dead 2 downloaded, you can still play it.




Patched now for new downloaders. If you were lucky enough to get it downloaded there is a way around the dreaded "do you own this game" screen.
1. start game
2. Dreaded dyotg screen
3. Hit "B"
4. Hit "A" to start game again
5. Black screen
6. 360 intro starts
7. Zombie slaying continues


I just got through reading about other Xbox Backwards Compatible titles that were downloadable. Apparently one of the Black Ops games was working and Uno. But one big one I was hoping for mentioned was Tekken Tag Tournament 2.


They were saying from your Xbox you could go to the achievements app and find games there.




Xbox app, go through your achievements, find tt2, go to info tab after selecting it, select launch game, store opens, select install.

Just read that Tekken Tag Tournament 2 was yanked as well. But who knows there's probably other BC titles out there.

I saw this linked in the xbox backwards compatibility vote site. Could be fake but hopefully L4D2 makes its way over to backwards compatibility. 




The source was a thread on the Xbox subreddit

I'm surprised no one here seems to care about playing Left 4 Dead 2 on their Xbox One. It's not an official BC title yet, but if you own it digitally, you can play it. It's been verified by several Redditors. I'm going to download it myself tonight.




  1. On your Xbox One, search for my gamertag: Apherix
  2. Go into my profile and look at following/followers.
  3. Find Left 4 Dead 2 and continue selecting it until it lets you download it.
  4. Download/Install.

For online multiplayer, which is better Forza or Madden?

For offline muliplayer, which is better Monopoly or furry plushophilia?

I loved Modern Warfare 1 and 2 but the previous games did little for me (although Call of Duty 2 wasn't too bad).


Knowing this, does anyone recommend the first Black Ops?

If you liked Call of Duty MW2, then you will probably like Black Ops. To me Black Ops 1 was the last decent Call of Duty game. The campaign was fun, but I remember it kind of being all over the place a bit. I had no issues finishing the game and played quite a bit of multiplayer.


I've bought MW3 & AW and really just didn't care for either multiplayer or campaigns. I'm done with Call of Duty unless they go back to WW2 or NAM or something. Titanfall all the way for future warfare, the multiplayer is extremely fun.

#13015099 Target 11/8 - 11/14: Buy Two Get One Free All Video Games

Posted by Techsticles on 08 November 2015 - 06:13 PM

Forgive me if this question sounds stupid but I was a bit confused by the fine print. Can I go in and say buy 4 games and get two free ones and then tomorrow go back to Target and return 4 of them I don't want for the full purchase price essentially getting 2 games completely for free? I assume not, and I would imagine the prorated discount they mention means they'll take the four games back, but at a discount instead of full MSRP. But I wanted to be sure before I consider whether or not to do the deal.

It doesn't sound stupid. It just sounds like you want to steal some games.

I'd be the guy that took the island because why not, plus they'd probably be thrown for a loop and actually have to find me an island.

Just like Bart did with the Elephant.  :-$

this is such BS, I can't update my payment method to anything that works.  Fuck

Good luck with this. I had the same issue, every card and even PayPal would not work. I couldn't purchase anything and had to buy cards to redeem on my account.

It took at least 10 phone calls before a "Accounts and Billing Escalations Support Engineer" was able to fix my account. It took a month to get resolved. Skip the bs and specifically ask for an "Accounts and Billing Escalations Support Engineer". Hopefully it'll get resolved for you.

Can anyone who's purchased any of them on the 360 play them directly from the dash, or are they only accessible right now through Rare Replay?

If you're in the preview program some of the games are available both ways. Unfortunately if you have one of the games already installed before you play Rare Replay, it installs a second copy. My wife has been playing Viva Piñata TiP for a few weeks and Rare Replay installed a second copy.
