@Old__Snake You again?!

It's great that you're following me onto unrelated comments now to continue your rantings.

As the theory goes, give a million typewriters to a million monkeys and eventually they'll produce the works of Shakespeare.

Keep it up. You'll get there eventually!

@modrup I'm not even commenting on the quality of the game, I just don't understand the mentality of people that would choose to pay 50 up front for a game that's available for far less money. It's not as if it's hard to miss either, the whole Game Pass thing is pretty much front-and-center on the Xbox dashboard most of the time these days.

I guess the people that have bought this at full retail are the same mugs that keep companies like GAME in business.

Who on Earth is paying 50 for this when you could subscribe to Game Pass for 6 months for the same money, and get this game plus a ton of other stuff too for that time.

Sheesh.

@FilthyAnimal Nintendo changed that some time last year and now it's what they're referring to as "ongoing access to a library of classic games" and that "users can play as many of the games as long as they want provided that they have an active subscription."

So pretty much how PS+ and Games with Gold currently work, but with added Nintendo.

Xbox Game Pass just got a lot better

SeanBeansGravyBoat

3 months ago

@bad09 Very true, but I think expecting people to fork our 40-50 on a game that they can get access to (and a ton of other games) for 8 a month is a bit of a stretch.

It's like the WWE pay-per-views these days. What are they to buy on Sky now? 25? So it's either that or pay 10 for a month's worth of the entire WWE Network instead.

The difference between this and EA Access is that games aren't added to EA Access on their day of release. Also the fact that EA can go f**k themselves, but that's another story :)

@mrcheesyelf I believe that the words I used were "for the consumer this is absolutely fantastic" which is what you say I would say if Sony had announced it, which is very true. I also said it about the fact that MS have announced it.

I certainly wouldn't consider it more or less fantastic for the consumer depending what badge was on whatever console I happened to own at any given time.

Thanks for your support!

From a consumer point of view this is absolutely fantastic but let's be honest here this is a total desperation move on the part of Microsoft.

They're essentially calling an end to their games as retail products, and instead choosing to use them as value added content to an existing subscription service.

Wow.

Jelly Deals: DropMix discounted in the UK

@The_B of the four available Playlist packs I got the three standard ones from Amazon for between 11-15 each (although they're usually shown as out-of-stock they do pop up as available fairly regularly) and the final one (the Ourobourus pack which is exclusive to GAME) can be picked up fairly easily from GAME's website.

As for the Discover packs I know what you mean, but I found an eBay seller doing the whole Series 1 collection for 22 so that was pretty good.

I'm almost enjoying the fact that I'm having to do some legwork to find them. It makes a nice change from "it's on amazon, buy it off there" like most things are these days.

The game is fantastic, I've had it since Christmas and have so far picked up all of the available Playlist packs as well as the whole first series of Discover packs.

People saying there's no replay value, etc. are missing the gameplay element completely. It's not a hugely complicated game but it is really good fun once you get your head around the various combos you can pull off using the various abilities and between two people that know how to play properly the later stages of the game can get quite "thinky" as you're trying to get close enough to win without allowing your opponent to steal victory at the last second.

Combined with the co-operative Party mode and the Freestyle mode that lets you make up whatever mixes you like using whatever cards you have and there's a lot of fun to be had.

One thing that also seems to be putting people off is the mention of "booster" packs, but it should be made clear that this game does not have "blind" booster packs where you just get a random pack of cards - whenever you buy any cards you will always know exactly what cards are in the pack before you open it, so it's not as if you're having to spend tons of money. Just find the packs that have the cards you want and get them.
