How do you actually see your Badlands progress? I can't find anything anywhere about it.

You would see it on bing.com where you click on the daily polls and activities.  You can also see it on the rewards app on xbox one. 

 

 If you missed the first two events, the Jungle one and Moon Gate, then I don't think you could take part in the next one.  So if you don't see anything there, and don't remember completing the first 2, then you won't see anything.

Did anyone ever figure out what was up with free Pixark from a few days ago? I assume just a price mistake. I just it up and it didn't give me a trial warning or anything so it seems like they didn't revoke my license.

Well, we're off to a good start. Rebooting the game entirely seemed to fix this issue at least.

For some reason my expired Hulu account isn't eligible for the $.99 deal. My "deal" is $5.99 per month. I guess I'll just make a new one.

I think I read somewhere that you can't have been active for the past 6 months or something like that. It didn't show up on my wife's account because we used a promo on hers recently but it showed on mine so we activated it on that one.

I assume it was a price mistake too, because it's listed at $24.99 on the Microsoft Store but when I sign in it says I own the game.

Wonder if they'll ban everyone for the EA Access exploit, they've been petty for less :)

Maybe only if a refund was immediately requested ... that's where it gets "exploity.,"

I don't typically do one of these things unless I don't have a moral problem with it (doesn't mean I'm right but I do consider it before any decision)

 

I don't really consider it deceptive to pay 5 bucks, download a game they are offering as a free trial, playing the game, and cancel after playing the game and earning an achievement that shows I played through what the trial offered (they offered the refund as an option I didn't request)

 

It would be pretty low to ban people for something like that imo. It's not like those things where people change their languages or locations or whatever.

 

but just my personal feelings on it I could be wrong

 

to me it feels more like extreme couponing on the internet more than anything

what's the easiest/quickest achievement for battlefield V using the trial from EA access?

complete under no flag war story for single player (took me way too long on medium difficulty)

 

if you can play multiplayer on the timed trial

 

call in 2 reinforcements in a round as a squad leader or 10 kills in a round may be the fastest

You mean just for Rewards, right? That would suck but wouldn't be the end of the world. Probably going to wait before cashing in points, though.

I got an email the other day, it had a panel about this, so I clicked it and it took me to a page showing I had apparently cleared the first two sections, and saying to clear the badlands do some more steps. How do I see if those last three steps registered as done? I did the quiz about deserts, earned way more than the required gamerscore this month, but I never actually log in on my xbox since its set for automatic. There is Never any info about this mission on the bing app, nor on the xbox rewards app. It did show up one single time on the bing app immediatly after I did the desert quiz step, a small panel with tiny checkmarks all greened out, but since then it's been gone.

Fastest is playing an engineer in multiplayer, build ten reinforcement items, which takes like three minutes to do, and you get an achievement.

Are there any 'great' XBL deals still going on for Black Friday? I got the free $10 credit thing, but nothing is really jumping out at me.

It might be that you completed the Bad Lands. You should have gotten 2500 points and there will be a reward (3 months of Game Pass for 0 points) in the Redeem section. The number of days needed for the 20 days of Live login doesn't show on the Rewards app on the xbox. I only see that when I go to the site in a regular browser.

Here's the Xbox One S (not One X) deal of the week. 1TB Xbox One S - Minecraft Creator's Bundle console with Red Dead 2 for $188.79 after taxes using code BF18. Best Buy has the console without Red Dead 2 for $199 so this is a no brainer for those looking for a One S.

I'm on a VCR console so I have to pull the trigger on this deal (pending wife approval when she wakes up of course)

LINK - https://express.goog...7579707_0_46586

Grabbed a Minecraft bundle at Target on Thursday, used a $50 gift card my parents gave me to buy it, and then got a $20 gift card for buying it. Still haven't opened it yet because I finally got everything on my VCR model just the way that I like it. I might save it for Christmas so I'll have something big for myself under the tree.

Yeah, that didn't make sense to me either. I knew it as soon as I typed it.

I didn't own an Xbox One when the first quests started and I got the same e-mail showing that I had completed them.  The link is generic and shows that you completed the quests even if you're not logged in, so I wouldn't pay much attention to it.  I'm pretty sure you had to have done everything required in the Xbox app to complete the quests.

The EA Access trial quickly reminds me how borked the EA account system is.  Load up Madden 18, immediately asked to login with an e-mail address that hasn't existed for over 8 years.  No option to change to the actual EA account that I use on PS4 and PC.  Had spent hours with EA support trying to fix this but they won't do anything if you can't get into the e-mail address the game wants you to use.

They made me set up 2 step verification for madden 19 and a few days later I start getting verification codes texted to me in the middle of the night every couple days with Russian text which I’m guessing is someone trying to get into my account lol.

I know this is not breaking news but the Rewards app Game Pass Quest tracking is a joke.

I have gotten achievements in 2 different games in each category (minus Forza) and none have checked off yet.  I initially had all 4 categories done Monday 11/20 and nothing has checked off except Forza Horizon 4.  Meanwhile, my Battlefield 5 mini quest of one achievement checked off in a day.

Mine finally completed today. Not sure if the two achievements from Split/Second finally tracked or if it was the Wolfenstein one from Thursday. But yes, the tracking on some of these not to mention how it seems some got this punchcard to show later than others needs to be addressed.

Yeah I'm in the same boat. I unlocked 3 achievements for Forza Horizon 4 and 4 for Gears of War 4 plus an Halo 5 achievement and it still hasn't updated my punch card and its been two weeks!

Well I activated my gamepass from my one account a few days ago and the punch card showed up today!  I just activated the other so hoping it will show before the end of the month.  The achievements look easy, just completed one for Lego Indiana Jones already.  And currently downloading 2 more games, should have this done by tomorrow.  

 

Quick question, do I need to download these games through gamepass, or if I have the physical or digital versions, will it still show the achievement, or do I have to download the game through gamepass in order for it to count?

NFS-if that's the one on ea trial, it's eh.
Lego world- is ok.
My son plays it for about 30. Reminds me of Minecraft.
PB winterbottom-not bad for a puzzle game. I found some solutions being ridiculous though.
