Has anyone played the dlc for Mutant Year Zero? I got bored after I acquired all the best equipment and haven't picked it up in awhile. Having a new character and new equipment to find sounds like enough to get me to pick it back up, but at this point I'm a little worried it could leave GP and tempted to buy the deluxe pack for $25.

Anyways, if anyone has tried the dlc I'd appreciate opinions on the length and what it adds to the experience.

The man himself, Cheapy D, is in Saints Row: The Third Remastered. So this means it is an absolute must buy for any & all self respecting CAGs. But as a true CAG you must wait to buy it for $20 (with GCU) or $5.98 on clearance at Target many moons from now. Otherwise you have to wait for it to go either GWG or Game Pass.

This is the way.

Wait wait wait... You're implying that there's content on this website other than this single particular message board thread? What is this new devilry?

New items for Game Pass Ultimate Members added for PS02. Not as much or as good as the last bundle, but better than nothing. Also, No Man's Sky just got a free update that adds mechs to the game, some graphical improvements, and other quality of life things. For free.

Anyone know if there's a Mixpot for the Inside Xbox show today?

It's ok. It tries to be more tactical with cover and stuff, so it's a bit slower paced than Diablo. I got a kick out of running around with a giant flamethrower and guns that shot lava bolts or something.

For $10, I think the game and DLC is worth a shot if you like Diablo style 3rd person isometric looters and/or the Warhammer 20k IP.



Condolences to those who've lost loved ones. I never know what to say in response, but I do commiserate.


Thanks for the info.

Went ahead and grabbed it since I'm a sucker for looters. Really liked D3 and currently lost in Borderlands 3.

New rewards quests are up and on time for the new month. Weekly is the usual stuff along with beat up 20 thugs in Arkham Knight and kill 10 Spartans in Halo 5.

I thought I recalled reading somewhere that there were rewards today, but I cant find anything now

For those who are into easy achievements, this sale has some on the cheap which dont take as long to complete. Aery is an easy 1k which can be done in under and hour for $4.89. Fearful Symmetry is only 49 cents and is doable in 2-4 hrs. Elea episode one is $1.29 which is a few hrs completion, but it hasn't reviewed well and is glitchy from what I've read. It might not even get the 2nd & 3rd episode since it tanked so bad. TA has a great article I've linked below

New sweepstakes tile for Outer World's skinned Xbox One X and controller in Game Pass App on console. With all the chaos going on here in real life, I broke my rewards app streak and missed my monthly quest for 1k points. Normally I'd be angry af as that's my default state but I just don't care. Like I'm talking here about it but it's not registered beyond this. Wild.

Stupid Question:

 

There seems to be a lot of chatter on here about achievements/gamer score/etc. What is everyone talking about about why is it important?

 

I must have missed something because the first thing I did with my new xbox is google how to turn off that annoying in-game pop up and do exactly that. Am I missing out on something?

Ori patch finally out, 5.6 GB on xbox

 

Thanks for letting us know. Just ran through the first couple of minutes of the game and it's running buttery smooth on X1X. Framerate drops were extremely noticeable to the point of being unplayable for me before the patch. Glad to see whatever they did worked!

Nothing that gives you rewards usually but some unlock bing points through the Gamepass app if you do bing. Other then that some people just enjoy going for them because some are difficult to get.

anyone have the game A Way Out and need someone to complete it with??

Only one person needs to own it to play multiplayer. I believe it's the only console game like this. Just invite someone on your friends list. They will then be prompted to download the game. Unless that's exactly what you're getting at then disregard me.

It's nice to get the daily 50 reward points for getting an achievement everyday. 

 

Adds up over time (1,500 a month).

 

Also Game Pass Quests

Yeah, I've acquired a lot of free games through the rewards program. Some of the reward requirements are for earning any achievement but others are for specific achievements too.

 

Other than that the achievements are extra goals to shoot for. People on your friends list will be able to see which ones you've unlocked.  I find this useful to see how far my friends are in any particular game.

Would you like getting paid to play video games?  Well there's an app called Von Republic on Xbox which gives you real prizes (free shipping as well) in exchange for your achievement earning.  Your achievements earn you Von Coins on the Von Republic app and you're able to use the coins to bid and earn prizes in various auctions, which include things ranging from mugs/books/figurines to consoles/controllers/games.

 

You earn achievements even with your notifications off so you may have some coins available to you.  They give you an initial amount on signup depending on your Gamerscore.

 

It's worth at least looking into.  Might even make you turn those notifications back on ;)

There are definitely some folks who legit enjoy making that score go up, and will purchase or acquire games for that sole purpose, and even play games they dislike if the cheevos are quick. To each their own.

 

Then there's a lot of folks, myself included, who feel achievements can enhance the enjoyment of a game you already love by giving you additional reason to spend more time with it, play a harder difficulty, or do things you wouldn't normally do.

 

In either case, it's the modern nerd version of building a rubber ball band or collecting stamps, it's just another aspect of the hobby. I dislike obtuse or busy-work achievements (kill XXXX zombies in Dead Rising, for example) but I had a lot of fun chasing them in the Mega Man collections, for example.

Journey to the Savage Planet on gamepass soon. I grabbed it on release and it’s a pretty good time. Humor is hit or miss as it always is in games but the chuckles outweigh the groans. Also a pretty cool metroidvania exploration game. Some achievements are locked behind The online only co op so it’ll be nice to have more people with the game to try and squeeze those out. My 2nd favorite 2020 release that I’ve played so far. (Animal Crossing is #1)

Hotline Miami Collection is now up. $24.99, no launch discount and 1k achievements total = wait for a a 90% sale for me. 2 is five years old at this point and both have been bundled on pc to death.

Can I just randomly say that A Plagues Tale is one of the best games I’ve played this generation. Fantastic story and gameplay and the graphics are stunning

FWIW, Alvastia Chronicles and Journey to the Savage Planet will hit GP on Thursday (4/9).

The PC adds weren’t dated.

I think with all of the craziness going on in the world, bundled with the hardships just within our little community here (death, sickness, job loss, etc.), I'd like to do a little giveaway.

Nothing major - just something to encourage positivity!

I'll gift a copy of Bulletstorm to one winner and a copy of OnRush to a second winner.

I'll let the first winner choose what they want with the other game going to the second winner.

Just like this post and I'll pick winners sometime tomorrow afternoon!

It looks like a third party "Pro" Dualshock 4. With that being said, can't wait to play Insomniac Spider-man 2 on it!

Gears Tactics looks better than expected. Like a higher budget Mutant Year Zero. Probably the most exciting thing shown today.

Thanks TurkeyOnRye for the generous giveaway. Good luck everyone!
