Details on Fatal Frame. New content is a diorama photo mode along with new costumes. Barely can see said costumes so can't really tell what they went for as far as replacing the original coomer Japan-exclusives or the Western Zelda and Samus outfits. The Japan exclusives might even be back because it says there are three swimsuits.
Preorder bonus costume is Atelier Ryza.
Deluxe edition includes costumes from previous games.
Only physical version is Japan-exclusive and only for Switch. No word on the switch version retaining the Nintendo costumes but it doesn't seem like it.https://youtu.be/dL7PwZ3a3yg
It seems Nintendo does still co-own the series, as they're name is on this trailer alongside Koei-Tecmo.


I only played the first one but it was the scariest game I’ve ever played.

This may be common knowledge at this point, but I just started playing Ryse for the weekly quest (game is fun, btw) and noticed that all the Gold Packs that you can buy to get upgrades faster are free. If you click to buy, it takes you to the store and starts you at 1000 gold, but even the 25,000 gold pack is free. Just grabbed a few and I’ve been upgrading every chance I get.


I had started it a long time ago and it was so much fun booting it back up for the quest that I just kept playing. I finished it over a couple sessions in a few days. Ryse looks really good considering how old it is.

Me and my friends are almost done with Outriders and I think I speak for me and my friends in saying I can't wait to be done with that game. That is a tedious game and man enemies feel way too bullet spongey to give any sense of accomplishment in leveling up even when you knock it down a few levels in the world tier. Got my Game Pass time worth at least and didn't spend any money.
 

Still at $0 for me as well after spending around $17 last night.


I just soloed the main story and I agree the enemies are just bullet sponges with the exception of a few bosses, I really enjoyed it. I sure wouldn’t have paid for it and never would have played it if it hadn’t been on Gamepass.

Definitely enjoying the Castlevania show - seasons 1&2 were awesome, 3 seemed like a little filler but obviously setting up for a big finale, and 4 so far is good; different but good, showing some cool perspectives on stuff.
Ended up getting the Castlevania collection and the fiancé wanted Civ VI to play with a friend, so maybe I’ll keep an eye out for some more goodies to hit the $40. Not gonna stress about it though. And definitely gonna try to avoid Activision games with what’s going on lately (also super glad Bungie broke away when they did).

I agree with you on the different seasons of Castlevania. I’ll finish up the 4th season tonight but overall I’ve loved it.
I’ve considered getting Civ VI. Definitely avoiding any Activision games as well but there really isn’t any on my wish list.
I was browsing the sale and saw The Dying Light. Heard of it but never have paid any attention to it. Looks intriguing. Like a cross between Far Cry and Dead Island.

Does anyone know if there is a cap on the weekly streaks on Xbox Rewards.
I just noticed yesterday that my streak was reset to 1 week. I had a pretty large streak going. I think I was around 70 weeks.
I might of missed completing last week but I was sure I did finish it off. I wish there was someway to check.


I don’t think there’s a cap because I had a streak that was well over a year. My streak reset a couple of days ago and I know I didn’t miss a day.

Yeah, I never owned a PS1 or 2 so I missed it back in the day. It probably would be hard to go back to the old ones but as you said, for $5 I’m willing to give it a shot.
 
It’s crazy the number of MetroidVania games that I’ve played/beaten/enjoyed and yet the only Metroid game I’ve ever completed fully was Prime 1 and I’ve never gotten through a Castlevania game  :shock:


I’m gonna give the collection a shot too. It’s just five bucks.
I hope you enjoy Symphony. I’m with you on Metroid Prime 1. I’ve never beaten beaten another Metroid game except that.
How are you liking the Netflix series?

Tempted by the Castlevania collection. I own 1&3 on the NES, but never beat either one all the way through, and just recently began Symphony of the Night after getting sucked in to the Netflix series (just started season 4 so no spoilers!). Maybe that’d give me some motivation to actually beat one of them. I just remember 1 especially being super clunky. 3 was fun but got tough and weird at a certain point. Maybe save points will help me out.


Never played Symphony of the Night? Still one of the greatest games ever. I’m thinking about the Castlevania collection too but after Symphony and the so many other titles based on its style, it’d be hard to go back to the old original games. $5 is the lowest I’ve ever seen it at and I’ve got some space bucks. If I buy it and don’t really play it, I can remember all the stupid crap I wasted $5 on when I was younger and not feel too bad.

Backlog talk:  July has provided some success

  • Control
  • Quantum Break
Currently jumping between the following
  • Sea of Thieves
  • Kingdom Hearts III
  • DOOM
How's everyone else doing with theirs?

Finished the single story of Outriders(very fun) and Night in the Woods. After I play the last DLC mission of Sniper Elite 3 tomorrow, I’ll be done with that. Not sure what I’ll jump into next.

Thanks. I’ve got a physical copy but for 69 cents I couldn’t resist jumping on it.

That’s not enough for me to upgrade my Switch. As much as the system needs an upgrade, I’m sorta glad it didn’t happen right now. I’d be shocked if an actual Pro version came out and didn’t have the supply problem that Sony and Microsoft have had wouldn’t occur with it.

I think I stopped playing Obsidian’s Grounded around last December as I became addicted to Far Cry (4+5+New Dawn). I just picked it up because of the new achievement update. They have been doing monthly updates. I think I spent the last few days looking for new items (crafting etc) and progressing along (plus an achievement too!). I set goals of what I want and manage to accomplish it. I think I have it on the easiest difficulty setting. I wonder if they will have enough content when the game ends up going full release? Perhaps they will add more achievements with an update after the final release. I believe Microsoft owns them now, so hopefully they can make more of these great games. Honey I shrunk the kids rpg/crafting/FPS is such a great concept! Its such a gem to have on gamepass.


Getting addicted to Far Cry is something I can relate to. I have meaning to get to Grounded since release but just forget about it. It looks fun if not incredibly interesting.

The GWG for July looks pretty good. I barely remember playing Conker back on the OG Xbox. Of the past couple months, I’m looking forward to playing or at least trying them all out.

Anyone have any luck finding a new Dualshock 4 controller? Sony seems to have shifted all focus on the DualSense (easy to find in store), understandably.


I got one from Best Buy online and I have seen them on Walmart’s site too.
