Can confirm these 200 point quests on MS Rewards are hitting instantly for me, at least with Hitman and Human Fall Flat. Don't have an easy PUBG one to get and not sure about Vermintide 2 on my card for 200 points, but maybe. 

 

 

edit: The Human Fall Flat wants a specific achievement amount of 20 Gamerscore for some reason, but that game seems to love 20 gamerscore, why it was great the other day for True Achievements 12 days of Christmas

Mother of a whore. Microsoft suspended one of my bing accounts. Geez, I have 2 accounts and never use exploits. One account for xbox credit and one for amazon or walmart gift cards.

First person shooter console online only. No thanks.
Mouse/keyboard or gtfo.

I dont care how “good” it is, controllers SUCK for fps. I use a xim4 when i do play a fps, just not online. I rarely do any MP anymore of any kind.

Fortnite does have M&KB support on Xbox, so....

Finished Mutant Year Zero last night. I enjoyed it quite a bit! I recall people saying it was similar to XCOM, but I've never played any of the XCOM games so I can't comment. It is a great gamepass addition and I recommend everyone give it a try!



Really looking forward to playing Mutant Zero Year!

So uh.......I downloaded the Hitman 2 Prologue last month and just installed the full game from the Hitman 2 disc.....and I don't need the disc to play the game.

Did not work for me. Have access to the first mission but that's it. Everything is installed. Curious what it says for you when you go to the Hitman 2 screen on your Xbox or the website (mine says I can either play the prologue or buy the game for $60).

Is FF XV Day One edition worth $9.97?

Edit..non digital version

 

I'd say it's better to get the Royal Edition. It comes with the Royal Expansion AND the full season pass. Its price is regularly around $25 and I would not be surprised if it hit $20 soon. The dlc does not go on sale by itself to often

I have all of the Hitman content playable in Hitman 2 Prologue due to the Legacy pack being free a while back.  Don't think I want to download Hitman for 200 points.

Its still a multiplayer shooter on a console, and still not interested.


This part is being glossed over..... its a MULTIPLAYER online only shooter. Dont care what game it is, zero interest.

Day 1 xbox owner, have never played nor owned a Halo game. I have rarely played any shooter on pc, let alone console, since the late 90’s early 2000’s.
When i do (for the 2 hours total) its on pc before i quit and move on. Bought the xim4 to play some one the ps+/gwg shooters i had, destiny is the only one i played for more than a few hours.

Just get the Royal Edition, there is a ton of DLC you're already missing and they are spinning Comrades into it's own thing in a few hours

how hard is the game? and how easy are the achievements?

The game has three difficulties, Normal, Hard and Very Hard. It also has Iron mutant mode which is an additional constraint that is equivalent to hardcore in diablo(i think). You have to beat the game on Very Hard + Iron Mutant to get all the achievements. You will need multiple playthroughs to get all the achievements.

 

I played on normal, which wasn't too hard once you figure out how to pick enemies off while sneaking. I died a few times and mistakenly entered combat at the wrong time, but it was fun to pull off the upset as the underdog in those situations. If I did die, I just reloaded from the last save and tried again.

I've been in the stream for 20 minutes or so. It still says "Stay tuned to find out how to complete this quest" for both items. Is that normal? How long do I have to be in the stream before they can be claimed?

EDIT: Nvm, got it, thanks Bloomy!

They make them go live whenever they choose.  The Embar is now live for a retweet.  Just click the retweet link and the quest will complete, and you need to claim it.

If you want to get done with the 10th day of Christmas for the TA challenge really fast and you are willing to drop $5 then Jack N' Jill DX is a supper quick completion with 11 platformer achievements. I finished it in about 15 min. I am not a huge platformer fan so this was worth the bing cash.

Game Pass has been amazing this month, Ashen by itself is worth the price of a few months. I'll give Mutant Zero a go sometime but got Below hitting in a few days.

I'm actually gonna boot up Ashen for the first time in a few minutes. I've been hearing good things. I tried Strange Brigade yesterday and felt it was meh, movement is a little clunky, which annoys me. I'll still give it another go with a friend. I'm also looking forward to trying out Below in a couple of days. And really, getting both Ori's and Hellblade in a few days too is awesome.

 

I dont know if I'll try Mutant Year Zero... Is it totally like Xcom or is it an RPG with turn based combat like, say, Shadowrun (not the fps mp one)?

Nice bad reading comprehension there. Again, missed the MULTIPLAYER part.  :roll:

Bought the xim4 so I could play with friends that only play on console, and refuse to have a PC that can.

 

3 things you can't say here without getting talked down to.

1. PS side: I didn't enjoy the last of us

2. Xbox side: I don't own Halo

3. General: I prefer shooters on PC (or opening my safe instead)

1. TLoU is shit.
2. Everything on xbox is Halo. Did you know they wanted to originally call XBox as Halo box?
(Untrue and made up trivia)
3. What's a PC?

It’s probably not even worth downloading the games for only 200 points so I’ll probably just do the ones I already have.

One thing about these punch cards is they got me paranoid to finish games cause I’ll have no easy achievements left to use.

Watch I’ll finish Below and next month it will be a punch card
