Not surprised Beyond Zero is already on there, game was a total cash-in. Glad to 1000G for "free".

nope stays the same I believe, a few people here have hit the mark that I can't recall right now. Still grandfathered in on that 5 Star VIP rewards thing from a few years ago now. Halo Wars 2 $90 version to bump me over for the 100 points dollar spent, best thing I ever bought even though you got no DLC from a season pass, just junk MP stuff. It was run by a third party then

How did that work? Is there any way I can check to see what level I am/was? I think I was level 3?

Late January/ early February is going to be brutal on the wallet though … most of the big holiday 2021 games have been pushed. Wonder if there will even be exciting deals on BF, given all the releases happening in early 2022.

XBox just sent me an email that said I'm now an XBox Community Game Club Member. Anyone know what this means? Are they going to jam things in my butt? Really hoping they're not jamming things in my butt...

Xcloud support officially in the Xbox app for Windows 10, and improved console streaming on PCs. I'll tinker with it while we watch trashy reality TV tomorrow night.

I’m still waiting for the functionality where you can stream GamePass PC games to a console. Still some games there that I’d like to try but don’t really game on my crappy PC.

The Weekly XBox Quests has the following which I won't be getting:

 

- Playerunknown's Battlegrounds: 1 Kill

 

- MS Flight Sim: Play on a Series X|S Console (How is this fair? )

 

update - I read the Flight Sim is crediting for the PC.

Flight Sim does not work on Xbox One, so I think they are just making sure people don't try it and complain.

Luckily, we should still be able to get the 15 Weekly Quests without these two.

Looks like I’m going to have to finally finish up my second Night in the Woods playthrough. I’d definitely recommend a playthrough. Just know going into it that it’s story driven and not too much “game”. Like a modern telltale game in 2D. The story was really good

I started it twice and never got hooked. Does it improve at some point? Is there a big twist and then the plot springs into action? Not trying to get into spoilers, just seeing if it gets better.

I was looking forward to the game, really, but I was literally falling asleep in the middle of the day and had to quit playing it or risk ruining my sleep schedule.

Hey you signed on the dotted line *forcefully pokes contract*

You can do that now, but you have to download the Insider App for PC and opt in.  It took me way too long to figure that out.

How do you do that? I downloaded the Insider app and enrolled in "Windows Gaming" preview. Is that it? Googling it only shows how to stream Xbox games to PC, which is far more popular.

The weird feeling of being eager to get home so I can fire up some Yakuza 7 and do some shareholder meeting battles.

I really wanted to like the game. I had heard it dealt with some mental health issues and was interested in it from that. There are some nice parts but if you can’t get into it after a while, then don’t force yourself to keep playing. It’s not bad, it’s just time consuming and yeah there is sort of a plot twist but not IMO a good one. I understood the criticism of the game after I finished.

What a gut punch, definitely was not expecting that given his age. At least it was cancer and not an OD, had 9 years to make peace.

Super bummer, loved Norm, seen him like 5 times. Once in the front row table of the Improv, that was a mistake, he tore me apart and I was on like a 3rd date. Don't believe we went out again. He seemed like a good dude, explained why it looked like he got a bad face lift a couple times I saw him on Stern the last few years.

The shareholder stuff is way too addictive. It's so silly but I was hooked on it for a while.

I Mean to be fair, I had to watch a 20 minute YouTube video on how to play it correctly, but once you get it, it's pretty satisfying calming share holders and their concerns down and building up your apology meter to do mass damage to their concerns. All of this sounds like the ramblings of a crazy person, but Yakuza 7 is just that kinda game.

Wait until you get to Yakuza 0/Kiwami 2 and do the hostess club management simulator. I probably put over ten hours playing that in each of those games.
 

Also I'm usually not a proponent for annual games, but there's something kinda satisfying knowing there's a Yakuza game every year. It just fills such a weird void of AA game with humor, characters and gameplay that all scratch an itch no other game can get.

Psychonauts 2 lost me with the trigger warning for dental phobias on the title screen. Goat vomit certainly doesn’t help.

And can I just jump straight into Yakuza 7 or would I be lost, story-wise?
