Thanks! I really appreciate it.

I'll pass my winnings to another CAGer, I checked and I already have both games!

I had never heard of 6180 To the Moon until the contest. I looked it up and it sounds like there is a lot of love for the game

Finally saw Terminator Dark Fate. It was a very well made action film, Linda Hamilton has still got it, but it just felt like high-budget fan fiction. Oh well.

 

Completed everything except the Subnautica missions, and my points total is already at almost 5,000. After only five days of searches. I'm guessing that this is the exception to the rule, and that I probably won't get this many points in the future without spending a bunch of cash. Those huge point deals next week even mention buying things in their descriptions.

I'm guessing those bonuses won't make much sense cost-wise unless it's something you already planned on getting, like a new Surface. Right now I'm enjoying the game of planning for seeing much $$$ I can rack up to potentially get in on next gen, since I usually don't buy new consoles at launch / wait for a revision or price drop.

 

Whoever in this thread recently said they couldn't recommend Titanfall 2 enough, thank you. I'm playing it on PS4 right now and I'm really enjoying it. Super fun game. I'm really glad I gave it a chance.

The last 3rd of the game is just nonstop action insanity. Really excellent sci-fi narrative.

I got my plans squared away for New Year's Eve, overnight stay in the hospital. Neck surgery and then 8 weeks of rehab. I am so crushing a backlog
I'll have xCloud with me, wondering if I should stock up on some Xbox funny money for Christmas sales tho


Solidarity for neck injuries. Been life changing, thankfully I'm getting better incrementally through therapy.

Interesting that Penny Arcade gave 2 steps to the game this week too. It's a phenomenal game, easily in my top 5 of last year.

I know we were discussing earlier personal GOTY in no order:
Outer Worlds for being engaging, fun, and creative. So good I'm replaying an rpg for the first time in years.
Dauntless for being Monster Hunter on my level. I'm not good enough for all the new MHW stuff, so I enjoy the more flexible Behemoths in Dauntless. F2P with a fair marketplace if most cosmetics are a bit expensive. They sell consumables, but I can't imagine ever buying them as crafting is easy and resources in hunt are abundant. Season Pass is fair with rewards and progress, plus you get a guaranteed costume for the pass's theme (monk, pirate, vampire hunter).

Thanks for the well wishes. No FSA to wipe out, just insurance and holiday scheduling.

Someone above mentioned a clip for phone\Xbox controller to play xCloud and I'm ashamed I didn't about that. Any good suggestions where to look?

I've been looking on Amazon, may want to check eBay as well.

 

Looks like the best option is the PowerA MOGA Mobile Gaming Clip.

I didn't do that 5 cent game pass thing brought up the other day, but I saw it was on Slickdeals for 5 hours today and after 43 pages it looks like the deal is dead now:

Yeah, it officially was spread everywhere as of this morning. 

 

My services page does still stay $0.05 for next billing. Hopefully we have some people in the thread that will start being charged in a month or two so we know what will happen.

I got a sib that locked in the 5 cent a day price, will find out what happens on the 10th when the sub expires and renews

I've reached out to Microsoft about this deal. Another user posted a screenshot of a Microsoft support agent confirming this is real but the support agent has poor English and punctuation which leads me to believe it's not a real chat.

Good ol' SD, killing deals every day.

Some people are really, really stupid. Why the hell would you reach out to official support multiple times to confirm an unadvertised 90% discount?

Oh well, my sub has 2.5 years left so I knew there was no point signing up for recurring billing that far out. Hopefully someone here gets a couple weeks of GPU before price hike.

j. Price Changes. We may change the price of the Services at any time and if you have a recurring purchase, we will notify you by email, or other reasonable manner, at least 15 days before the price change. If you do not agree to the price change, you must cancel and stop using the Services before the price change takes effect. If there is a fixed term and price for your Service offer, that price will remain in force for the fixed term.

Also on The Microsoft store. Can use Xbox money if you want. It's a solid clip so far.

I Have a bunch of controllers from so many consoles, but hot diggity damn I think the Phantom White XBox One controller makes them all look like pure garbage. That is a ridiculously pretty controller, soon to be ruined by dumb sweaty hands.

Surf Embar is live in the Gears eSports stream.  Didn't go through for me in Chrome or Edge on Windows, but went through on mobile.

Guess I'm lucky I signed up for Bing Rewards years ago even though I never really used it prior to getting game pass back in June.  I always felt Bing was inferior to Google and still do but suffer for the points.  So I have options for Amazon, Walmart and Target as far as department store cards go.

 

That said I don't think I'd cash out for anything but Microsoft money because it's about a $15 difference per $100 and there is always something to use the Microsoft money on.  I think I'm going to stockpile my points until next year and hopefully have enough to get a nice discount on Scarlett.   I've gotten 75k since June, though I wasted about 10k on one of those monthly deals that they don't seem to be doing anymore, so having enough for about $200 towards Scarlett seems very doable.

I misspoke. We get internet from a dish on the house that looks at a tower. I think I said satellite. I could be using the wrong words. Anyways. I had no issues for two years and played everything online perfectly and then it stopped.

I am guessing you are using fixed wireless which is line of sight? That makes sense. I doubt anyone here has experience with such a technology. My guess would be something is obstructing or disrupting your signal between your house and the tower.  Or perhaps something is wrong with your dish or the cable that connects to the dish?

Google filters out some of the bigger torrenting sites while Bing doesn't.

I just look up words/phrases folks use these days when I dunno what they mean, sasquatch and aliens, and consensual adult entertainment

 

sometimes results include all the above which is convenient but disturbing

 

so pretty much any search engine works for my needs

Yeah I forgot to add it can be bought from the MS Store. Even better since Xbox money can be used to buy it.

For any of the TCL Series 6 owners out there:

 

Are you aware of a way to "save" a set of Picture settings?  I bought the AVR I mentioned earlier and now have all of my components going through that device so now I'm only using HDMI 3 on my TV, so now the U-verse STB is using the same picture settings as the Xbox One.

That’s my thoughts as well but ISP says no.

Fired up Remember Me today for some achievements. I can't help but think this game could have been great in another developers hands. I still like it but it is really clunky. Did Dontnod improve their camera at all in Vamypr?

Just so I'm clear on this, Halo Reach is free/now part of the MCC if you own the Master Chief Collection or played on Game Pass but Halo 3 ODST is $4.99 regardless if you own the MCC or play it on Game Pass?

Keep in mind, your total includes the monthly Game Pass Quests so there is a chance every month. Plus there is the new Daily, Weekly, and Monthly Quests. There are all kinds of ways to get points.

 

Hmm. I can’t find the December quest. Anyone able to drop a link?
