I bought the PowerA charging station, but no matter what I do, the thing only flashes red. Anybody have experience with how to get it to work properly?

Apparently whoever bought it originally swapped their dead batteries for the new ones included and returned it, and when I bought it off of Amazon Warehouse Deals in, allegedly, mint condition, I got dead batteries. yay.

I don't mind the pacing of the Halo pass, but I don't see them releasing one with as many tiers again. I like what they did in theory, I've found myself agreeing with a fair number of design points. But I also understand the pain points and gamers want everything now making any attempt at staggering things hard. My only real complaint is the need for playlists, let me pick a mode so I don't have to wait to load and then drop slayer.

I hope this means more fake plastic instruments for me to buy.

So I ended up picking up the cross gen bundle. From what I have seen you get 2 copies one for original xbox one. The other is optimized for series x so some extra graphical bells and whistles. Additionally the series x version does 4K 60 FPS or 1440p 120 FPS. You can also double dip achievements.


Not true, the achievements do not stack - it's treated like every other Series X "smart delivery" upgrade.

Since they're paid I doubt they'll drop the number of tiers. They need less filler since only like 40 have actual items.

This eneloop charger + 4 AA batteries is all you need for a single controller. Most versatile option by far.

https://www.amazon.c...e/dp/B00JHKSMJU

I have both battery packs and later bought some Eneloops.  I haven't switched over to them yet but will if/when the packs die.  I find it less of a hassle and cleaner to deal with the USB charging cable.  Then again I only really use my Elite controller anyway.

 

For my OG Elite controller I think I have the BB house brand stand/battery.  Drops right in when I am done and nicely displays the controller.  I bought it on closeout IRC.   I like this setup a lot and honestly almost never use the other controllers.

Why does it show 2x on my console but no access; like how control is split? Was that because it's ultimate vs regular?

Assumed when it populated same way it was 2 lists. Damn Oh well I was excited to try 120fps.... Can't play this 'inferior' version. Now if only I could find a series x.

It's one of the few that has 2 versions that do no stack.  I'd have loved to spend 12 hours getting all the hard get theres again. :(

 

Recent games with a stack are Tales of Arise and Battlefield 2042.  The grindy stuff in BF will unlock after doing part of an achievement or leveling up once.  The In-a-round achievements need to be done again.

Looks like there are some older gen controllers down to $40 on Microsoft’s eBay store (found on Slickdeals). The PUBG one is OOS, but there are four other models that are still available:

I’ve heard that these models are a tad comfier than the newer “Series” ones. Any truth to that?

Getting Activision desperate CoD vibes from this. Throwing Battlefield on the shoulders of a guy that surely has his hands full with his own successful studio. Wasting a former head Bungie dev on what sounds like a support studio. Crossing over games that in a series that barely has characters or story.

Also the community is on fire over some Santa skins as the game is still busted. Their newest patch had a "minor" bug that removed the ability to LOOK LEFT OR RIGHT on mouse.

I posted the Xbox controller deal on here and slickdeals. Have to say, this community is pretty lame. cag tweets it out immediately but gives me no credit. I get a total of one response on my thread while this thread talks about it more. Think I’ll just post other deals I find on slickdeals.

Blame that on the management, not the community. The regulars here don't run the CAG Twitter.

This forum turned into a single thread per platform. The conversation is fine it’s just not an effective way to share and talk about deals. Is what it is at this point.

Yeah, this had been a talking point for a while. If some wants no (or maybe minimal) nonsense deal talk, we tend to recommend TrueAchievements news posts, SlickDeals, or Wario64. I think the main deal-related benefits of this forum are quickly seeing the occasional glitch/exploit, and the ability to ask questions and tap into knowledge of past events and sales.

These are all Xbox One controllers.  Maybe this is their push to deplete stock?

I've used both Xbox One and Xbox Series controllers pretty extensively and I can say that they are both fairly comfortable.  I have big hands though.

The forum has been mostly dead for years at this point. I don't even browse it anymore; I just have this one thread bookmarked.

Every thread created on the Video Game Deals forum automatically get auto-tweeted out by a bot. Not sure why getting credit, likes, or activity to a thread matter at all since you can't really do anything meaningful with them in real life.

You can complete the Tutorial for Scarlet Nexus.  It takes about 25-30 minutes to complete and is available in the xCloud©.

Xbox Controller Clip from MOGA is half-off ($7.50), went ahead and bought it with spacebux since it ships for free without an order minimum.
