I don't have the spend $40 get 4000 points offer on my Xbox. Can someone tell me when it expires?

I was looking at Borderlands before and though I had bought, then I saw posts saying it free to play for the weekend. I knew I had not bought it and was waiting for it to go lower lol.

Looks like they have got rid of Farcry Gold (still available in Australia, probably will go soon too) so people will buy the gold edition that is bundled with New Dawn Deluxe.

Bioshock Collection, worth getting if you have the Xbox 360 versions?

People think I’m stupid for commenting on Reddit that I’m surprised it didn’t mention the games. I guess everyone there reads books only.

Besides what Dustin said, I think beginning any show or movie or whatever with the words "Based on the popular video game" just has the stigma of it'll be hot, wet, ass filled garbage. I Think Detective Pikachu got around it by saying something on the lines of "Based on the Global Phenomenon".

I imagine when the summer sale ends since it's only valid for games features in the sale. I bought the $40 Dauntless pack and it did not count.

Is this a punch card where you have to click something before you start getting purchases to count towards this?

I’m pretty sure that punch card is only for the US.

Maybe, just thought I would ask as I am missing the weekly punch card( I have got it twice before so I should be getting it).

I don't think so, when I clicked the tile and there was no button like in the weekly items. Rephrase, you click the tile, then the tile that shows your spending, and clicking that takes you to the sale page with the eligible titles.

No button press required. It also tracks your purchase $$, which is handy (I think i’m at 39/40, of course).

Books are way too detailed and has lot more context. Same deal as LoTR where the total movie time amounts to about 60% of the book, if that.

There's a lot of fluff that gets cut, generally; but even so, Witcher books have lot of action beyond what made it into the games. I'm glad the series doesn't have the expectations set by the game.

They are pretty clearly hoping to capitalize on the Game of Thrones fandom, so people will probably pay more attention to the new hotness if it's also adapted from a popular fantasy book series. Most good fantasy shows and films (LotR, Harry Potter, GoT, etc) were books first. Films and shows based on games also have a terrible track record, so it makes sense to emphasize the books.

That said The Witcher had some of the best writing for a video game, man a whole one off episode for "The Bloody Baron" would have been great.

You know what grinds my gears?

 

Sending your sick kids to summer camp. I got back from being a counselor last Friday with a sore throat. I think nothing of it considering yelling was 90% of my time there. Weekend goes by nothing wrong, then Monday hit. It felt like a bus ran me over and gave the bird as it drove on. Headache, coughing, sneezing, sore throat, and tired. I think wonderful a couple of days like this. Not even close. I texted my cousin on Wednesday who stayed another week there and she said they've sent 10+ kids home cause they think they have strip throat is going around. Wonderful, I have a bad heart and this could kill me. Saw my dr yesterday, ran a test, and it came back neg but he thinks it's a sever cold that will last another 4-5 days. I started feeling better today just a cough, oh man was I wrong. I got all new PC parts for my old PC, talking about replacing everything but the case and HD. I get 5 mins into tearing things out and my shirt is half way soaked in sweat and I'm getting sicker by the sec. So what was to take 40 mins took 2 hrs. PLEASE for the love and peace, if you're sick or your child is sick stay home please!!!

I know it has been discussed but I am not seeing it (probably not going back far enough in the thread).

I have game pass ultimate until sometime in 2021. I have updated windows and have the xbox (beta) app installed on my computer. I'm logged into my xbox live account with game pass ultimate.

When I click "play with game pass" on a game on my pc, it brings me back to the screen to sign up for xbox game pass for pc (beta) for $1.

What am I missing? Do I need to add a payment method and pay another dollar? I thought game pass ultimate had me covered.

Thanks for any help.

Anyone here have a PSVR?  I just set mine up and other than crying like a little baby when going through the setup everything went fine.  However, when I look beyond the bounds of the PS screen in the headset an icon of the PS controller pops up with a little animation on it like it wants me to hit a button.  What is that?

That's in case you want to reset your position of where you're standing or looking by holding down the option button on the controller.

Not able to reproduce that issue myself, just installed "Night Call" from the Xbox Game Pass app (Beta) and it installed and played fine.  Maybe try installing or launching an Xbox Game Pass for PC game from the Microsoft Store App?

Thank you! I'm not sure why that made a difference but I tried to install a game with the store app which required me to log in again. I noticed the game pass app refresh in the background when I logged in the store app (even though I had logged out and in several times to the game pass app) and now it works.

So thank you very much!

Coming into the party five months late... holy crap I really enjoy Apex Legends.  And I really didn't think I would, from the aesthetic and general feel from the trailers... couldn't get into Fortnite and I've never been a fan of "fast" shooters like COD.  But damn if there aren't some nice little touches I've discovered with some friends... I like how the game tells you easily whether the item in front of you is better or worse than the item you currently have.  I like discovering the little radar towers that tell you where the circle will close down next.  I love playing as Pathfinder and creating a quick escape via zipline.  I like getting a second chance at life, if your teammates can get to your banner quick enough.  I love SLIDING. Just... wow, a really neat, polished game.  And for free.

 

We only started playing a few nights ago but after almost a year of solidly playing Halo Wars 2, PUBG and Rocket League in that order, I think this might topple them - we played for 5 straight hours this morning, something we haven't done in ages.  I'd seriously be okay spending money on some of the characters, considering how much fun I've had for free already.  (plus the current punchcard for buying 1,000 coins, and my EA Access 10% discount, helps.)

 

It's the closest I've felt to Team Fortress 2, now that we've gotten to grips with the characters and how they compliment each other.

Started HItman since it's leaving game pass next week, I like it. Somehow I've never played a hitman game before.

 

Although it's hard to focus with all the Marvel notifications I keep getting right now.

Don't know if just a glitch on my Xbox, Resident Evil Revelations has EA Access up the top of the store page lol. Site and app are normal.
Would post photo but on phone and can't see option to add it.

For those of you that have played the Gears of War 5 thing, are there any spoilers? I haven't played 4 yet and so I don't want to ruin anything in in fact, this Gears 5 playtest or whatever it is will do just that.
