Anyone know how flexible Target is when it comes to exchanging a game from one console version to another? Have Hitman 3 coming in for PS4 from a B2G1 deal last year and wondering how difficult it would be to swap it for the Xbox version.

I think if it's unopened they'll likely let you.

Looks like the AC Valhalla fix for the quiver upgrade installed. Finally, enough arrows!

The funny thing about horror movies and games is I love them, but can't deal with real life violence. My girlfriend hates scary movies, but will listen to the most grisly forensics reports on true crime podcasts while making dinner like it's no big deal.

 

Then you're only -$4 per game!

Same with me and my wife!

If you haven’t played My Friend Pedro... highly recommended.

Those are rookie numbers, you gotta pump those numbers up lol. When I went from full physical movie collection to starting digital I added about 700 movies to my Vudu from disc to digital alone.

I did all my conversions under the old system where you had to insert the disc in a computer to get it to recognize, but that was very hit or miss sometimes would recognize as different movies or not at all. Had to go into Walmart for customer service to get some to convert. They used to discount the conversion when you had 10 in the cart at once so it quickly turned into a slippery slope where you just needed to add a few more to save money. Then I would buy more movies at Walmart to get Vudu credits to fund more conversions. Unfortunately I just traded physical hoarding for digital hoarding instead of getting real help haha.


Yeah, then you have the problem of being unable to remove stuff you blind bought and never want to see again. Not able to cull the herd like with physical media. I’m there too 😄

Next gen update in February. Won't do 60fps with ray tracing, unfortunately.

 

That should be about when I'm done with AC Valhalla, good timing! :) 

 

I'll go with 30fps and ray tracing over 60fps.

I hope so. Looking for more games to buy cheap and not play for years to come ;)


... if ever 😜

MS sent out another e-mail with a chance at some MS credit.

 

Watch for an e-mail titled "Your chance at a holiday gift awaits"

 

I got $5.

You can stream your Xbox One to phone or PC but the Series X/S is phone only.

Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

To be clear X/S streams to mobile devices, so tablets and phones. 

 

I've used it to grind out levels for Injustice 2 (on my ipad) while I'm working. It worked really well.

What is the site to tell if a game has been on sale and the lowest price for it? I’ve been eyeing northgard but my cheapness is telling me to wait it out. I’m antsy to play a rts other than halo wars but also don’t want to move over to the proper platform to play them on.

Also, does anyone have any recommendations on co-op campaign games? I know there’s the main first party games like gears and halo but also looking for something different, a hidden gem or under the radar of sorts.


Unraveled. Also Untitled Goose Game has coop now and it’s hilarious.

Time to get those last few achievements in Goose game I guess.

Dammit, I may need to buy Goose Game now. It's one of my daughter's favorites. She even dressed as the goose for Halloween.

Bought a few things with discounted credit for the sale, and Control Ultimate isn't reflecting on the spending total. Everything else showed up immediately, so it seems odd Control wouldn't (it's been about 18 hours now). Boo-urns.


For some reason it took a few days for Control to show up for me. Hopefully it still applies for you.

So I randomly get a black screen with my series x. It looks like it's only while on the home screen. Looks like others have this issue when I Google it. I've tried a hard reset and different hdmi ports on the TV and it still happens. Going to try using my xbox one x hdmi cable tonight to see if that helps. If that doesn't work my only option I think is a factory reset. Hope I can fix it and don't have to deal with contacting Microsoft.


If it’s active, turn off the display 4:2:2 setting. I had a random black screen that seems to have been resolved by that. It was happening on my One X too. Hope that helps.

I finished Syndicate earlier in the Spring when the school buildings were closed and I was teaching from home.  I think it's a really good cap to end the traditional/classic AC gameplay style.  I've heard Origins really switches things up so I'm excited to start it.

 

I kind of want to play Rogue since it has been so cheap, but I really want to move onto Origins and I don't want to experience the new play style and then have to revert back to the old for Rogue.

 

I started SuperHot:MCD and Deponia the other day and I really want to finish one of those before I start Origins, but I don't know if I can wait.  I do love me some open-world!

Origins is great. Try to do the DLC too if you can. It wraps up the story nicely, the goes into the afterlife/underworld, which is pretty cool.

Tried to play Gears Tactics on my One X and it shut my system down during the first mission intro.

Weird, I had no problem playing it on my One X. Played the first few missions, thought, "well this is pretty cool", then looked it up on howlongtobeat.com, saw 23 hours, and decided it's going on the backburner. I'll get back to it some day but there's shinier stuff out there for me.
