Awesome! Welcome to 4K glory at its best.


Damn. I haven’t yet finished Rise of the Tomb Raider and you’re making me want to get Shadow just to salivate over the graphics.

 

Oh wait until you see it. I'm playing on a Sony 900E 55''. It's gorgeous.

The X900E is a great TV. I have the 55inch with the Pro and X both hooked up and everything looks amazing on it (especially 4K content).

On the topic of Diablo 3: how does it compare to Path of Exile and Van Helsing?  I've played both and thought they were just ok (like, I "completed" both but wouldn't have paid money for them).  Given that, would I still enjoy Diablo 3 (on sale right now for $30)?  Is it different enough from the other two that I've played for me to spend $30?

It's so much better than the clones. I don't like Path of Exile on XB1 at all and Van Helsing is fine, but Diablo III plays really well and is polished as hell.

D3 is super polished and fun but that said I haven't been able to go back to it since PoE was released on Xbox.

Didn't someone (maybe Bloomy) mention getting "Influence" on Forza Horizon 4 for watching it on mixer. I'm watching it now and don't see where it shows I'm getting anything for it.

Are you signed in with your Microsoft account?  Below the video, you should see a little ribbon next to "Forza Horzizon 4".  If it's there, you should be earning influence.  If you've been in the stream for more than 5 minutes, you should be able to click on it and see how much you've earned.  I'm up to 319k.

Does it work when you watch on Xbox. I don't see a banner at all, been on some dudes stream for about an hour

I don't remember what they said in the Forza forums about it.  I've just keep a stream up on my PC while playing Xbox / watching TV.  I check it every now and again to see if it's still up.  If not, I switch to another stream.

Yes, I just started watching when Bloomy responded (so a bit over 15 minutes?).  I'm on my console, signed into Mixer on my account.  The banner shows up above the chat, right under your gamer picture.  It said i earned 1000 influence.  I'm not sure if the banner stays there the whole time though or if it just pops up when you earn influence.

 

Edit: The banner is on a timer.  I just watched it pop up (I'm up to 1500 influence now).  And then after a few seconds, it disappears.  It doesn't stay on screen the whole time.

Hmmm I don't see any with that badge that show it's eligible to earn influence. I would do the same if it earned me shit while doing nothing.

"PUBG on Xbox One X is perfectly fine and I've had no issues with it"

Guess I’m one of the lucky few who has no issues mentioned in the article. Not sure why you’re so determined to prove that PUBG sucks on the X1X, but it doesn’t for me. And honestly, I’ve always been in the camp that as long as a game is fun, then a few hiccups here and there don’t bother me (ie. Telltale, Bethesda, etc).

Not actually sure when I will get to playing Syndicate but I might just buy the Season Pass. I don't think it will drop below $9.90 unless I decide to buy it. So you're welcome.

For those of us who got 3 months of Mixer Pro from E3, the billing section of my profile says it expires in 2 days.  It says "Redeemed via code", but I think it was just applied to my account.  You might want to double check that you have autorenew turned off.

Silly me for assuming battlefield 1 and 4 had local split screen. I wouldn’t have gave them a dime. On to googling if the recent call of duty games are like this as well, but can anyone recommend a good split screen shooter?

Halo MCC and I believe the Call of Duty games can be 2 player split screen? Borderlands 2 also if you haven't played it yet.

Yeah, it’s Halo MCC that has me in this jam. New update no bueno. It’s reassuring COD is still on point, and I think borderlands was recommended here once so I’ll grab that on the next sale. Thanks for the reply.

Blackout is fun, I get why ppl like it but it's not for me. I don't care for PUBG or Fortnite either. Blackout is full of ppl teaming up in solo mode too which makes it even worse lol.

anyway i got a question about rewards, maybe someone can help? i redeemed a 1 year gold code just fine, but whenever i try to get xbox credit it gives an error about something wrong with account or order, so i thought maybe i am shadowbanned however i can still buy donations so i am not banned. is there any other ways to spend your points because it says somewhere in the rewards menu you can buy 1000s of things but i only see the same 12 things.

 

and people keep talking about a hot deal, where do they actually see it? it never shows on my account.... like i read in a rewards forum now its 30% off gift cards til mid october, which seems pretty nice, however where does this show ?! :)

You only see 12 things on this page?

 

https://account.micr...rewards/redeem/

 

I see 46 total.  Wherever it says 1000s, it might be referring to stuff you can buy with gift cards.  Redeeming Xbox credit no longer gives codes, it deposits directly into your account.  Maybe there's something wrong with your account on the Xbox side that wouldn't be affected with other kinds of redemptions.

 

The current hot deal is on Skype credit.  On the page I linked above, the Skype option has a yellow banner on it indicating it's the hot deal.

I got a cheap used copy of No Man's Sky with store credit the other day. I don't know if it's a game I want to keep playing. I enjoyed it and could sink a few hours into it in a single sitting but the repetition and time to put into it to feel like progress has been is off putting. I played for 4 hours and feel like I may be maybe half way through what could be a tutorial before it leaves you to do whatever.

May return it and work on the back log until next month when games start coming out. Maybe it will be cheap enough on the black friday or countdown sale.

I felt the same, though shortly after reading it in, I read that it really opens up after the lengthy tutorial.

I submitted a help request to MS last night about it. I’ll post more when I have an answer.

 

Did you happen to hear anything from MS on this?  The app on Xbox doesn't seem to be processing that I've completed the offer, and I still don't have the 10 days of logging on to Live, even though my son plays various Lego Star Wars games after school every day.

If you want to farm some influence for FH4, check out this stream. https://mixer.com/Ponomar.  A guy is running the demo and will not be shutting it off. The influence isn't showing up for me, so hopefully it just isn't showing it correctly for me.
