This trailer reveals some story plot, so if you want to go into the movie blind don't watch:

 

 

But it's totally worth a watch!

Has everyone seen the latest infinity wars trailer yet?

Looks like Microsoft is integrating more Xbox related rewards with Bing Rewards in the future: https://rewards.micr...ds-announcement

 

Cannot complain.  Their gift card rewards already play for a chunk of my digital purchases.

I've intentionally avoided them all, even in theaters.  I'm trying to go into this one cold.

On a (non-story) related note, I can't tell you how many times I have hijacked a cultist truck only to stop and sit through "Help Me Faith" or "Oh the Bliss." I have the soundtrack downloaded so I can listen to the songs at work. It's like a sinister Hillsong United. 

 

I haven't heard cult music this good since "Kathy Don't Go":

Finished the story in Injustice 2 this weekend.  Man, there is so much to do in that game.  I chose the Batman ending, now I have to go back and choose the Superman ending, as well as all the other "Choose a character" chapters and switch my choice.  I am loving this game, even more since switching the controls to a more Capcom quarter-circle style.

Are you talking about the various trailers for DeadPool 2?  If so, I've gobbled all of those up because they have been good about not showing much about the movie.  I've loved all of them immensely.

Do you use a regular Xbox controller when you play? Those quarter-circle movements aren't always picked up well on my dpad. I'm wondering if it's my controller or I'm just fat-fingering the wrong directions.

I do, yeah.  I use the thumbstick, since it's as close to a joystick as I'm going to get right now.  The quarter-circles seem to register fine, it's the half-circles that are the hardest to pull off for me.  I was trying to do Swamp Thing's tutorial yesterday, but couldn't get his combo with the cancel into half-circle special to work because I couldn't get the half-circle fast enough.  I'm still trying to break my brain from waiting for the hit before going on to the next one.  The fact that you just input the whole combo string even before everything hits is new to me.

Don't remember who mentioned Late Shift was worth checking out on game pass but gave that a go this afternoon and it's been pretty enjoyable so far. Not a game really but enjoyable fiction with some choose your own adventure. I wonder how much it actually changes based on the few choices you have though or if it's just details and the overall narrative remains fairly linear.

I went back and did the other choices, there is some scenes that are only on 1 decision path but overall pretty similar

So now that direct deposit is a thing with Microsoft Rewards, does anyone know if credit can be used to gift game/DLC to other accounts? Or do they require the purchase be made by CC?

Considering The Surge before it goes off sale. Is the Complete Edition worth the extra ~$10?

I noticed there was a new update for Xbox One. Of course as I was doing the update the power went out. You know how it says not to turn it off or unplug it while doing the update. I thought I bricked my Xbox for a second. Luckily it did the update just fine when the power came back. No issues that I'm aware of.

 

I thought that maybe we'd get the new avatar update. I didn't notice anything different. I heard it was supposed to be happening in April.

 

They have some free Westworld avatar items.

Looks like you can use credit for gifts. I just looked back to a gift I sent (to an email address but for myself during the EA Access free month promo) and I used account balance to pay for it.

Has anyone played Paladins or Neverwinter and can say whether the "Better with friends" for Paladins or the XP Boost for Neverwinter are any good? I'm trying to spend my 1300 gems on xbox rewards and am considering those or just one of them and mixing in the gwent card kegs and maybe an overwatch wallpaper (couldn't find it on google images).

Well the complete is three pieces of DLC: one is always free, one is two quickly discarded starter items and a tracker for finding hidden stuff which sounds useful, the third is actual content. The actual content DLC seems to have reviewed decently and adds a few hours of content and the environment is supposed to be quite different from the rest of the game which is one of the bigger criticisms of the base game (lot of sameness in environments).

 

So if you don't want the tracker thing it's like 50 cents cheaper to buy the game and DLC separate. DLC is also on sale right now so you could always wait and hope that's more than 33% off down the road. I was going to do one of those but just ended up buying the complete, figured waiting on the DLC to be cheaper seemed like a bad idea since XBL sales are almost exclusively on base games and complete/gold editions.
