Anyone here do that deal that I think someone here posted about buying certain movies or TV seasons on Amazon and getting a free movie ticket to see Deadpool 2. I’m having trouble getting the certificate because it seems to be having issues pulling up theaters. Kinda pissed because I wanted to go see it tonight using my Movie Pass and this offer for my wife’s ticket.

Just wondering if anyone else has done this and run into the same issue.

I bought it on Amazon since the movie cost the same value of the ticket certificate. I got the promo code immediately but haven't tried to redeem it yet.

I think today is the last day of the Onrush beta. Any arcade/battle racing fans should definitely give this a try. You can unlock stuff in the full game when it launches by leveling up in the beta. I've played a lot of this the last couple days and have had about as much fun as I've had with any racing game in recent memory. It's all team racing so you aren't racing for position so much as reaching gates, boosting, and wrecking folk. Lots'a fun! Little bit of a Blur vibe to it.

It has been extended to May 22!

I really like it but wish there was a little more variety in events. I know the whole tag line is about “no finish lines” but would love to see races added. The engine with boosting and speed is fantastic.

Beta got extended a few more days. I was impressed when I realized real time tracks in snow.

Any thoughts on Wonder Boy? Just can’t make up my mind on that one.

It's fun. Some parts you get lost and don't know what to do next since it's a remake of a Sega Master System game, but beyond that, no complaints.

Decent deal if you shop at CVS, I guess.

Maybe I missed it but not sure if someone posted that Microsoft is making a new Halo arcade game (you know, the kind you stick quarters in 😁). The dev of the old Robotron arcade game is involved.

I thought it was mentioned during the Xbox Live mixer show talk. I love Robotron but not quite sure how that will translate to what looks to be one of those "on rail's" shooters.

I have some old favs trapped on my OG Xbox, along with all the mod stuff. Really excited to not have to mess with component cables, since the TV I plan to buy only has HDMI.

And to piggyback on your post, I'm going to post this handy Reddit link about the necessity of removing the clock capacitor from earlier models of the original Xbox since a leaky clock capacitor could possibly ruin an original Xbox:

https://www.reddit.c...clock_capacitor

I opened my launch model, removed the clock capacitor, cleaned the motherboard, dusted the internals, and put it back together in less than an hour. But the clock capacitor doesn't need to be removed from a 1.6 model (the last revision of the hardware). Good luck!

Did they stop the gems for certain missions on Xbox Rewards? I know I have had my Gold membership active for more than 6 months but I haven't gotten the 200 gems for it.

Tried onrush for a couple rounds. Maybe it was the map or game mode but I didn't have tons of fun. I'm glad the respawns timer was only a couple seconds because I don't know if I was alive for more than a minute at a time. It looked and sounded cool though.

I have a local chain that will buy movies, games, CDs and books. Traded in a ton of stuff for $250 credit. Tempted to pick up an xbox one x. I still have a bunch of more stuff to trade in too.

Thanks to whomever mentioned the Onrush beta. It's fun!

Not sure if it's $60 fun, but that's the life. I'm assuming more maps and modes in the full game, but it's a sold arcade racer/battler.

Does anyone think the deluxe edition of life is strange is worth it? Or just get the regular edition?

If you want all of the episodes for Before the Storm, assuming that's what you're referring to, get the Deluxe Edition since it has the bonus episode centered around Max and Chloe.

Since I’m no techie I’m just going to assume this has to be done because time travel is dangerous and we don’t want to mess up the space/time continuum.

Or because you don't want the acid from the clock capacitor to leak onto the motherboard which might start a fire that burns down your house all because you wanted to enjoy a game of Kung Fu Chaos. But, hey, whatever floats your boat! ;)

Played it a few weeks ago and calling it a sci-fi Spelunky feels accurate to me. Biggest complaints for me were that the health restore system was weak and you felt restricted in your ability to fight bosses iirc. Otherwise, game felt solid and controls we're tight.

As for the reviews being mixed, I'd check the date they were posted. I didn't play the game in it's earlier incarnations (got a code a month or two back), but impressions I've seen is the developer has listened to feedback and made improvements where necessary.

I stream on Twitch. At least two times a week. https://go.twitch.tv/jess_stryker

I downloaded and booted MGSV last night but this piece of shit still hasn't updated. Hopefully I get the credit for it. I think I downloaded all 4 of this month's games.

Make sure you bet early when Seattle becomes the next expansion team. They’re getting the same expansion draft rules Vegas did.

Every XBox update I always think to myself before downloading "Maybe this will be the day I can sort things alphabetically and it won't count the "The" in the beginning of the title." I Then proceed to the games and see The Banner Saga still counted as T away from Banner Saga 2 and just sigh.

Drives me positive insane. Almost as bad as Spotify sorting artists alphabetically by first name.
