My company's web traffic filter got an update this afternoon that blocks sites categorized as "Games",  which includes CAG, GameFAQs, Xbox.com, Twitch and Mixer.  The security guys were caught off-guard by this, but I don't know if it will change.  If it doesn't, this will prevent me from posting deals here on Mondays, since I'm usually at the office late deploying a new weekly build to our testing environment.  The XB1 web marketplace still appears to be accessible, since it's hosted on microsoft.com, so I should be able to do a scan.  If things don't change, I could potentially email it to someone to post, or you guys may have to wait for StoreParser (if it works) or another scanner like TA to pick up on the deals.

 

What doubly sucks is that the blocking is done by the computer and not the network, so my work laptop, which serves as my primary surfing machine at home, can't access the sites anywhere.

 

If you pay real money, do you get what you want or does it buy a chance through an RNG loot box?  If it's direct purchases, maybe they think this is better compared to Battlefront II.

My soon to be former employer just implemented this on PCs too, so even if on your home network you are block, kind of silly, or really silly.

 

Hopefully you can figure out something because your hard work is appreciated.

Alpha Ring Insider here.

I'm trying to move Anthem DLC on the internal HDD to my SSD, and when I select the SDD nothing happens. I'm also trying to move the Anthem game from a regular USB to my SSD, and same. When I click on the SSD it makes the sound, but the console does nothing. In fact, trying to move these things to any other storage does nothing. Any one else have this problem?


Power cycle the xbox.

We've had this system (Cisco Umbrella) for a while.  I remember when it first rolled out it blocked the Wayback Machine.  Can't remember how it was categorized, maybe as porn.  But that's since been whitelisted.  Hopefully they unblock this category.  The security guys know how to turn it off, but they weren't sure if they could without a go ahead from a higher up.  I think it was League of Legends that was briefly blocked on the company network, but it got unblocked because the VP of support lets his team play that during breaks and as team building exercises.  YouTube will also never be blocked because people use it for tutorials.  Not sure if there are enough non-gaming tutorials on Twitch to get the entire Games category white listed.

This is so short-sighted. I gave it a 10 this morning. I'm going with some good friends tomorrow night and it's going to be epic! They're really good friends and we always have a great time at whatever we do, so how could it not be a 10?


Can't tell if sarcasm. Are you saying you rated it already on anticipation?

For anybody who joined the Game Pass Ultimate but had it disappear, check your Insider Hub. I just jumped in and noticed the FAQ is back. In the Insider Content tab under joined should by the GP Ultimate. If you didn't get to finish, choose "Show in Store", it will take you to the join for $1. It let me use space bucks for the $1 with PayPal as backup. Good luck!

All the talk about Baja: Edge of Control, I had a little bit of interest in it last week but not enough to purchase it. This week I'm much more interested in Gravel being on sale. Mostly because it has stadium truck racing in addition to rally and baja races. It is Xbox One X enhanced too!

 

But then, I already have quite a few racing games... do I really need another?

 

 

 

I just want 90's stadium truck races with full destruction physics...

Went to a preview tonight for the biggest movie of the month...

Long Shot. Ok, wasn’t Endgame but actually really liked it. Don’t think I’ve laughed that hard in a long time.

Let me know if you want my NordVPN account Bloomy. I'll PM you my details if you think it works or try a trial version if you can; and, if it does, I'll gladly share.

 

Also, for the guys who are in alpha or skip ahead, the Game Pass Ultimate insider content is now available. Check you insider app and join if you so feel. I joined just for the sake of testing the service; since, I see no other benefit for self, having maxed out my live & GP already.

All three Bioshocks received decent sized updates today (Bioshock: 630mb, Bioshock 2: 3.92gb, Bioshock Infinite: 362mb). Was really hoping to hear they were Xbox One X enhancements, especially since 2k just updated Borderlands. No news yet on what it was.

There’s a new punch card on the rewards dashboard for completing 8 tasks by 5/22.

Prizes for completion are 1 month game pass, 1500 points and 1 month of 2x bing searches.

Seems easy enough to do but we all know how tracking goes with them.

And if I’m reading the tasks correctly you should be able to finish in 3 days.
