Yeah, I’ll wait for a sale on that one. $20 would have been okay. But $30 is too high for basically nothing being done to it other than making it 4K.



I preordered Mass Effect Legendary two days ago using the punch card and still haven’t gotten the points. Anyone else having issues with it?

Mine hasn't showed either, it's been less than 24 hours though. Paid for all but $4 for it with rewards points anyway.

So this is one I definitely gotta wait for on Series X I guess based on the trailers.

Does anyone know if you can redeem more than one of the same perk? I would have to assume no and that a "You already own this item" message would greet me but if anyone wants to give me their NBA2K21 perk code to know for sure I'll be happy to test it lol

Let us know how it goes and you might have plenty. Pretty sure Gems of War and PSO don't stack

Shot down with the aforementioned "Looks like you already own this" message. I guess there could be others that slip through the cracks.

The DLC is free now. Still, yeah, i’d hold off for the new version.


Pretty sure only the Deluxe Edition DLC for 2 and 3 is now free. I think the bigger story DLCs still cost money.

Anyone going to be playing Hood: Outlaws and Legends?
Thought the trailer looked pretty awesome.
Probably a lot funner with a group with mics over random groupings..

Guess it’s about time to dust off my Xbox 360 Mass Effect Trilogy I bought before Hastings went out of business. Should I play them in low res before high res to get the full story?

Also, loving the new legend in Apex legends but she seems majorly OP. I expect a nerf coming soon.

From what they've shown so far I don't think there will be much reason to go back except ME3. If you want to see the difference, it looks like ME1 is the one to really compare. The performance boost will be really noticable as well, ME1 runs like trash through BC.

Main missing features are a bad ME1 DLC, Miranda Lawson's Butt cutscenes in ME2, and the multiplayer for ME3

All three games are on GamePass though, maybe do that instead of opening the sealed game. Looks like it's been selling sealed for $60-90 lately, which must be collectors.

Finally got my auto redeem gift card. And then they redeemed another about 20 minutes later. I'm not complaining- just a little odd.

Can someone explain why you want to auto-redeem points?  Do the points expire?

I know one reason is that it gives you a bit more of a discount on points to dollars.

You have 90 days to use the Xbux before they expire.  Not ideal if you're saving up for something big.

This. Literally the only reason I'm aware of.

And since they don't do Hot Deals on gift cards anymore, this is now the best deal you can get... even if it's only limited to $10 once a month.

 

(FWIW, I also got my auto-redeem, and then 20 minutes later I got another one.  As previously mentioned, I'm not complaining... but yeah, odd.)

I also got my $10 auto-redeem at about noon today

 

I do the auto-redeem because it is the cheapest way to get Xbox gift cards in the rewards program since they stopped doing sales

 

 

I preordered Mass Effect Legendary two days ago using the punch card and still haven’t gotten the points. Anyone else having issues with it?

 

I did my pre-order for Mass Effect last night and the store was having all sorts of issues.  I added two gift cards on my Xbox and it said the money was added to my account but when I went to purchase the pre-order, it wasn't there. The store on the Xbox said I only had $3.22, when I clicked to buy Mass Effect it said I had $28.50, and on my PC the full $60 showed in my account. So I did  the the pre-order on the PC, but it took about 2 hours for it to show on my Xbox that I had purchased it. After that the punch card completed and I got the 6,000 points

All the working on the backlog and not buying games just went down the drain when I bought a gaming PC yesterday. Is it bad that I want to play Cyberpunk now?

What kind of CPU/GPU?  I bought in to the hype for Cyberpunk and preordered it at a decent discount, but feel the need to wait until they are done fixing it.  The 5 minutes of it i did try looked pretty good though!

cp2077 on pc is mildly buggy but mostly fine.  i own the steam version.  The current state would be an okay time to start playing the pc version.

I will randomly fire up Skyrim every few weeks so I think I've got the full sets of alternate armors claimed by now. They offer some new freebies every 2 weeks in skyrim and fallout 4 but usually just the low tier cheap stuff. I still grab every freebie I see but never actually use them when I play. Somehow I have still missed one of the skyrim ones maybe Arcane accessories that they have given away at least 3-5 times already, and remember to login the day after it ended lol.

I finished ReCore today after the frame rate got doubled.

The final areas are still a mess as is the game itself. I know the definitive edition/release fixed a lot of bugs but the only thing they changed gameplay wise was the lack of needed cores for the final dungeon. I was able to get to the final boss with only 20 cores. Anyways, the final few levels had a stupid amount of platforming involved and had a random "toxic" trait that would poison you and the only way to cure it was clear out the room of enemies. It ended up taking way longer then it needed to take.

To make matters even worst half my quick resume sessions ended up crashing.

I am so glad to put ReCore behind me. Even if it ended being picked back up years later.
