#14251042 XBL Deals - 2019

Posted by The Linguist on 31 December 2019 - 04:31 AM in Video Game Deals

Achievement tracking for the Rewards quests are totally borked for me. Completed a handful in the last 24 hours and none of them are tracking, they usually do. Anyone else having issues?

 

I'm having the same frustration. None of the 6 achievements in 2 dif games registered for the Weekly Rewards Quest, which is apparently going to break my streak. I tried the unplugging-hard reboot that was suggested above, but no luck. Any other suggestions?

Anyone else having issues with Bing searches not registering?

 

Do you mean the punchcard with searches over 3 days? I've done that every day for about a week and not a single one has registered.

I Gotta admit, Game Pass and the rewards quests are probably the greatest motivator I've ever had to start and finish games. I Feel like one of those commercials where I get paid to play games, except, you know, the pay is worse. Much worse.

Yeah. I bought The Turing Test over a year ago but hadn't played it until last night when I started it for the ID@Xbox quest. It's a fun Portal-like (so far).

I also got the free spin but I can't get it to "not" charge me.

 

Same here.

Does Cheapy really call acorns, "egg-corns"?

 

Yes, please address this on the next CAGcast. This word is a famous example of a kind of reanalysis that's actually very common in English (and other languages) where the make-up of a word is reconceived as deriving from something else. For the back story on this word and others, check out: http://eggcorns.lascribe.net

I'm thinking about giving Just Cause a try. I played a couple of hours of JC2 but didn't get very far. Is there any reason to play 3 or should I just jump to 4? I know that 4 didn't review well but it seems like that's mostly b/c people felt it was more of the same. I have Game Pass so price isn't a factor.

So I have a funny bug on Crackdown where the enemies don't move their legs when running around. Anyone else get this? It carries over from load to load also.

 

Yeah I've seen this. They move like electric football players (the old school buzzing board kind). It's not a constant thing but seems to pop up in fire fights.
