Well I've gotten a few Game Pass months in with Microsoft Rewards doing Bing searches/ quizzes and what not. I've also mostly converted those points for currency to use on the Xbox, through the Windows Store. A few times I was a sucker and tried the sweepstakes or Instant Win game. With credit I had accumulated this way though I was able to grab the Universal Pinball Tables for Pinball FX 3 for $4 and change. Of course ultimately, that caused the bug that fucked me over lol.

 

Now, with Xbox Live Rewards it has had its shine and glory but not as great yet pretty decent as it stands is the MyVIP Star system. So if you spend money picking up games, grabbing DLC or purchasing movies and what not you can improve your level. The way they reset it every year sucks though. I'm Star Rank 3 so I get 6% back while also being a Gold member (3% to start) which is nice. They also have a deal with receiving 15k rewards credits for pre-orders but multiple times I have had problems with their system. Ultimately I just wait on games for the price drop anyways.

I like your play ethic.


Same here. I try to do the same sometimes.

The guy named himself a verb, present tense. Cause he's not stung, and he's not stinging, he's Sting!

My mama called me "Piece of Shit" so much you'd think that was my given name.

Just pre-ordered Cuphead for $10 and cancelled the free trial . Thank you very much.


How are you guys doing it? Nothing appears on my account credit. Do I cancel it already? Or wait?

May have missed this in the thread but I saw Dead Island Definitive collection for $7.99 with GCU on clearance at best buy. Picked my copy up today. Credit to lick a slick, click checkout with ship to home selected then they offered me $1 off to pick up at certain stores. Thus making the game $6.99 before tax.

A couple other good clearance deals too..... I might finally pick up one piece....

Just picked up RDR GotY for $12 as part of the same sale/deal.

Calm your tits, buttercup, how many of these rants do you go on a day? You coulda got your point across in like 3 sentences and still got your sjw quota in.

I don’t even disagree with your stance, just your approach. And I know he’s a good dude so probably was just joking around


The "joking around" defense? You can't get more pathetic than that.

Amazon promo. Just follow the instructions on the page if you've never used Music Unlimited before. After you enter the code and sign up for 30 day free trial, a $10 credit gets immediately placed in your account.


Thanks. The credit can be used on digital XBOX giftcards. I'm using the $10 on a SWBF2 pre-order.

Still waiting on the MW trilogy...

IMO it's a waste of time bring BC compatibility to titles that are already on the One. Particularly CoD games, because we know all those fanboys already bought it for the One, even if they got it for the 360 already.

 

Read that the Fallout 4 GOTY Edition has all of its DLC on a code inside the box - not on the disc.

Just a heads up, so you don't buy it used.

 

(This is unusual for Bethesda. Fallout 3, New Vegas, Oblivion and Skyrim all had their GOTY/Ultimate Edition content on disc.)

Can confirm, just opened my Pip Boy GOTY Edition. Not surprised, since you could just pass the DLC disc around. How are they going to feed their developers without DLC purchases? It's not like Bethesda has tried to monetize any of their brands with merchandise or anything. Nope. Haven't seen one Fallout or Skyrim themed item.

Jake's actually right though haha. It was a jokey tone... It was a spur of the moment comparison link to Bing Rewards because of a name change, and nothing more.  I didn't mean it as a "we should all do it" type of comment, just something personal to me that I thought of quickly to finish that post.

 

My bad Brannigan, I didn't mean to offend you.  I genuinely feel bad if that really hurt your feelings, and I'll try to be more professional around these parts. Can't lie though... It was kind of cool setting off one of your infamous thread rants.  Kinda like a CAG achievement.  But still, I'm sorry about that.

 

On-topic Xbox discussion:  So are we doing this Fortnite thing tomorrow night or what?

We're first and second in line for an SNES with midnight release, just glad I don't have to deal with it tomorrow.

It might be a good idea to not try to make "innocent" jokes out of things actual transphobic/homophobic/racist/xenophobic/nazi people use to try to oppress those they hate and deem to be lesser human beings. Let that shit stay in the toilet where it belongs instead of digging it out with your hands, wiping it off, and telling us it's still okay to use.

So I know I'm about 2 days late on the GWG discussion, but I bought The Turing Test during it's last sale so you are all welcome. I really enjoyed it for the space bucks I paid for it. The Portal-esque puzzles and AI theme were very entertaining for me. I felt compelled to watch Ex Machina again after finishing the game.

Going to try my luck tomorrow. Wondering if one hour before Target opens will be too late or not.

I understand that...that's exactly what I meant when I told Brannigan I'm going to be "more professional".  You can cut out his name and put your own if it makes you feel better.  I meant what I said to Brannigan about feeling bad if you were thinking that was a joke too.  You get bonus points for that visualization btw.

Two disappointments in one night.

 

I can't use the 10.00 amazon code.

The universal pinball tables don't have the real voices ( I can live with this) or the real music. I was looking forward to playing those tables and hearing those classic themes. Bummer.

In the US at least, Bing Rewards was renamed Microsoft Rewards.  This was the Rewards program that gave you points for making Bing searches and browsing using the Edge browser, and you could redeem points for stuff like Xbox Live time, skype/musicpass credit, stuff like that.

 

There's also the separate program called Xbox Live Rewards, which was the one that gave you points for taking surveys and buying games and movies during their "SciFi Month/Shooter Month" promotions, and the points were converted to currency, which was autodeposited in your xbox account.

 

And now that I looked up something, it looks like they axed Xbox Live Rewards in Australia some months ago, and just rolled it into MS rewards. (So, they moved your points over, and you just had to choose from the new rewards store).

 

Personally, I'd be happy if they did that for the US.  Xbox Live Rewards has been pathetic for a long time.  It used to be good when they gave you a percentage-back rebate after spending some amount of money, but now you have to spend at least $300 BEFORE the rebate kicks in.  No thanks.

Ah, that sounds interesting. 

 

I agree, Xbox Live Rewards used to be much better, even just a couple years ago. Back when it first started (when we still had Microsoft funny money), I got a rebate on everything I bought from the store (I think there was a minimum but it was low), doing the monthly surveys, renewing Gold membership and some other random stuff. Then slowly it got worse to the point where, for almost the past year, I've gotten my reward points doing the monthly survey. There's no way I would spend $300+ to get 2% back each year.

Are you going to immediately play it or really play it at all? Do you need an extra fancy paperweight or door stop? Does buying and adding games to your backlog fill the emptiness of your soul? If you answered yes to one or all of these than yes.

Still no code for Cuphead from Newegg, but looking at Xbox.com, I guess it won’t be available until 9 a.m. tomorrow?

Is anyone who ordered it directly from MS able to play it now?

Isn't that we why we all fill our backlogs?

But yes it would get a fair bit of use at my girlfriend's place. She's a gamer at heart, still plays her PS2.

I'd say go for it than. Non 3D games tend to age pretty well, especially side scrollers and platformers, and it has a great selection of RPG's as well. If you got the time and money, really why the Fuck not.
