8 x1 games? Damn. Mind if I might ask what? Wondering if I missed out on that good good. Battleborn for $5... I mean I played that moons ago. It was fine, definitely not my kind of game, but I'd be less concerned with the server uptime than actual player count. maybe because it's officially closing the servers some folks have gone back to it?


If you've been an actual CAG and refrained from buying this years releases, yes you missed that "good good"

The feeling of going from 1080 TV to a 4K HDR Smart TV makes me incredibly eager to get my One X now next week now. Now I feel even more overwhelmed by my backlog for some reason...so it only makes sense I utilize all that higher definition to play my Genesis Mini.

They started that a few months ago. I've been able to use the. Online for digital Nintendo eShop credit, but the physical cards haven't worked for a few months.

Thanks and bummer as I had been using rewards to turn into digital money for Xbox sales.

 

Have a few $10 games on sale I wanted to grab before the Xbox holiday sale ends (Contra and Castlevania Anniversary collections and Okami HD)

 

Did very well with Bing rewards at least as I cashed out $230 worth and grabbed a bunch of games at great prices to add to the ever growing back log.

Trying to earn the 500 points for the Game Pass Xbox Rewards quest is a pain in the ass.  I've been at it all day, and I'm only up to 150. 

 

Is this what it's like to actually play games?

If you have not done Old Man's Journey or Minit yet give them a whirl as quick achievements and will be at 500 in no time.  Use a guide for both to help get them quickly.

Same. I got an LG OLED C9 through saved up gift cards and rewards certificates after going 10 years with the same 1080 set, and I'm so glad I upgraded.

 

Booted up Star Wars in 4K on Disney+ and it's like wearing glasses for the first time, you see so many new details.

 

GPU drastically cut down my Black Friday spending, I only picked up a couple games, and am more than happy with my foreseeable backlog.

Wreckfest is the worst racing game I've ever played by far. Suprised I saw it talked about so highly on here when it first came out.

Because you're wrong an it's awesome.

When I feel overwhelmed by the back log I end up watching Youtube or Netflix.  

 

Congrats on the X it really looks sweet in games that support HDR.

Thanks. When I feel overwhelmed I just play something I own or beaten on a different console already, which is why I kinda hate Capcom because they know I'm weak.

 

Also this suddenly has made me excited to get Cyberpunk despite the feeling it'll run like garbage on current gen consoles.

Had potential to be awesome but it's just so poorly designed.

211,150 to be exact :razz:

 

I had set up an account for my son last November and have him give me 5k in points each month and he still had 50k in points that I turned into digital cash to then gift some games to my gamer tag. :bouncy:

Pretty much as for both accounts I do:

- Daily sets (with then gives me streaks for daily sets)

- Edge searches

- Mobile searches

- PC searches

 

Then get some rewards for doing quests and monthly surveys on the reward app for Xbox.

Just a reminder, Fallout 3 is also Xbox One X enhanced.

 

 

I've got a question I am pretty sure Bloomy can answer: I've been using the Forza Hub app for awhile now. Can we no longer claim those free credits in Forza Horizon 2? The menu tab that it's on in the game has been greyed out since the servers went offline

Anybody on here having problems with their Netflix on Xbox? Been getting errors for 3 days now and see a bunch of people complaining on twitter yet they haven’t fixed it yet.

Reinstalling only fixes it temporarily.

So I just picked up Hitman 2 gold. Never played the first game, and I’d like to get the GOTY legacy pack so I can play the previous game. Is it always $20 or is that a sale price?

Not all of them are recent and I wouldn't call them killer deals, but they hit my prices. Ghost Recon Breakpoint Gold Edition (from the trade thread but I counted it in my black friday purchases), man of medan, lion king/Aladdin, no man's sky, spyro trilogy, battleborn and modern warfare. Wasn't planning on getting modern warfare but I had more credit at a local chain than I thought and I've heard it's decent so I figured I'd give it a try.

I may return aladdin/lion king and man of medan if I don't think I'll play them any time soon. Trying to be better about the backlog.

I asked about battleborn a few days ago and I forget who responded but they said that it's been updated so bots replace empty spots in games.

All these Black Friday games, meanwhile I’m level 75 on season 3 of Apex Legends.

I have been playing CoD since it’s a 2xp weekend, I got from lvl 1 to 10 in about 4 matches.

Finally finished out my round of Black Friday Xbox purchases. Grabbed The Hitman HD pack, Virginia, Team Sonic Racing, Oakmi HD, CTR Nitro Fueled and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Sekiro didn't really hit my by price but after playing Fallen Order I wanted to try another souls like and this seemed like the logical next step.

I just finished Jedi fallen order, sekiro is much harder in my opinion, but both are great games.

Man of Medan is a quick and great game. If you're trying to be better about the backlog, you're gonna want to return No Mans Sky. Total time sink game, and that's only if you actually like grindy supply games.

Anyone doing the 10,000 point quest.  Just want to give a shout out to Mutant Year Zero.  The game is a lot of fun.  It's a strategy SRPG but with added exploration and comedy mixed in.  Kind of a hidden gem on game pass.

Random thought regarding the 1-month origin subscription packaged in a BFV 1tb Console bundle - is that the subscription I would need to play through Jedi Fallen Order?  TIA.

I got no mans sky digitally to replace the hard copy I traded in a while back. I enjoyed playing it, was just trying to clean up my shelves and traded in a few games I hadn't played in a couple months. Figured I'd jump back in with the recent update.

I was mostly thinking about returning man of medan because I also got until dawn. Didn't know if I'd want to play them both within a short time period. After your comment I looked up the times and it looks like they're short enough that it will be fine. Was thinking they were going to be longer.

If you havent played until dawn you're in for a treat. I finished it in one sitting because it was so good (still about 8 hours or so). It say play it first because the anthologies apparently all tie together.

Until Dawn is one of my favorite games of all time. It's incredible and my daughter and wife enjoyed watching and being part of the decision making processes. I know this isn't the PS4 thread but I love that game
