I can't wait for void bastards tomorrow reviews seem mostly good from what I've read so far

If you can, call them and try to cancel it. Seriously. Chargebacks will get your account permanently banned. I know this is what support told yo to do, but they are wrong.
 
Read this thread:
 
https://www.reddit.c..._support_tells/
 
And this:
 
https://answers.micr...2c-28a254ff7045

Well my bank is closed for the day, but I had support just call me, gave them my support ticket number, and asked about the steps I took and about contacting my bank, they said my account will be ok. All I can do now is wait and see I guess. Maybe since I contacted support first and they have a support number for the case things will be ok. I can't see how following the instructions they give you would result in an account otherwise in good standing getting banned.

Unfortunately people that work at support jobs don't always know what they're talking about. If it does go through hopefully you find a supervisor or whatever that is sympathetic to the fact that you were told to deal with it through your bank, but technically it's not incorrect for for them to tell you to deal with the bank if you aren't satisfied. That rep likely doesn't do account banning so maybe they don't even know it's a possibility.

 

I don't know if it's a one to one policy that chargeback = ban, but it seems like there are enough posts around the internet that show there is a likely correlation.

There will also be the Japanese variations of these in a post-launch update.

All I really know is what the actual site that support sent me to says. That says if you don't know who made the purchase...You will need to contact your financial institution for a refund.

I'll have to try calling the bank tomorrow and see if it's possible to cancel the case.

I don't think it has been mentioned anywhere, but it looks like Destiny 2 Forsaken and the Annual Pass are on sale for :xb1:
 

Forsaken --> https://www.microsof...en/bq56jmh9s69f
Annual Pass --> https://www.microsof...ss/c2ckz01457cz
Forsaken + Annual Pass (best deal) --> https://www.microsof...ss/bztn9dblkw5t


Lots of details have just dropped about the next season in the game (Season of Opulence) which kicks off after reset next Tuesday so I'm pretty excited!

I think a bank is supposed to deal with this like its fraud and that it's handled in a different way instead of direct charge backs. A person instituting a charge back is you dealing with it, not the bank. It sucks that there is a distinction and that it happens in the first place, but I get why it's like that. If everyone could just charge back "false charges" it's be abused to oblivion. Really, MS should have done an investigation on their end and issued a refund if the purchase was at a weird IP address or something. Telling you to take it up with your bank should be the last step, not the first.

I have had problems with the 1.4 on the pound cable, but I'd still try it. The picture quality when it works is phenomenal. You'll know right away if it doesn't because you'll experience numerous black screens while playing.

I got my Pound adapter today and immediately had the black screen issue. Plugging a micro usb power cable into the adapter per Pounds suggestion fixed it though.

 

Made sure to throw in Incredible Hulk to test out 720p. The list of games that supported 1080i is surprisingly small.

I apologise for suggesting it. I have only dealt with charge disputes as clear cut fraud in another instance. MS Support has so many layers that it sucks getting the right info. There needs to be some flow for all support departments.

I do hope you don't get banned and excuse my ignorant suggestion. Good luck

There's some weird protest or something going on at Twitch. It seems like they're playing movies mostly under the Artifact page but also Anthem. I watched about a half hour each of Revenge of the Sith and Avengers: Endgame. Most of the streams are just other games but now a few people are playing hentai vids as well, and there are like 20 streams of baby seals. Really edgy chat for the most part too.

 

I'm not sure if it's against Valve or Twitch. It seems like they can't deal with it since it seems like more and more are popping up.

Microsoft text chat is done via a third party company iirc, so what they say is not gospel. Doubly so if you end up dealing with an "Ambassador" volunteer.

Xbox Mixer plans for E3

 

June 9th - Mixpot confirmed for Xbox conference - 4 PM EST

June 10th - Sea of Thieves: Mixer Invitational – Battle for LA, from 2 PM EST (Onyx 4-pack Mixpot)

June 10th - Inside Xbox (just gameplay showcasing?) 6PM EST

June 10th - "Mixer will exclusively stream live from Xbox FanFest inside the Mixer Dome", from 10 p.m. – 12 p.m. EST

 

They also have listings for most of the other major conferences. Devolver Digital's (mostly) joke show is not listed, nor is Nintendo's Direct from the 11th. I may be reading too much into this but I feel like that hard de-confirms Steve, Banjo, or Master Chief in Smash Bros. Even if they premiered at Xbox it would obviously be a cross-promotion thing.

Hopefully they give out another game in the mixpot that takes a year to come out and then launches on gamepass anyway.

I bought Call of Cthulhu on sale today, getting really excited to play that tonight. Then thanks to this thread, I discovered Void Bastards which is coming to Game Pass tomorrow.

 

Yep, won't be playing Call of Cthulhu for some time, lol.

At least that Rage Against the Machine song that was done for the soundtrack is still great:

 

 

It's also one of the most anti-capitalist songs they ever wrote, directly criticizing the film and entertainment industry and calling the film itself "pure motherfucking filler", I'm still amazed it was approved. RATM was so hot in 1998 they didn't give a shit.

 

Spoiler

 

So much irony.  A multimillionaire super capitalist acting like he doesn't like capitalism to get rich off of capitalism - what a load of crap.
