Thinking about going to my xbox one for cheap games now. Might pick up some of those Capcom games. Quick question though: how often do the Microsoft Studio Games go on sale? Specifically the Halo games.

For those Vets the gamestogrunts website just updated to provide 4 new free Xbox games. (MCC, Halo5, HaloWars2, and Door Kickers) get em while ya can if you need them yet...

And now they’ve also thrown in Clusterpuck

Very jealous of you vets. I've been waiting for a cheap code for Halo MCC, Halo 5, and Halo Wars 2 and you get them for free. For the vets who get them, thank you for your service.

I did, which of course I couldn’t remember my ID.ME password so had to rest that. Worked afterward and got my codes.

I’ve been using this iso app called ‘Site Watcher’ that notifies you when the page you set tracking on gets updated. The gamestogrunts site did a bunch of updates over the holidays to their site so I think that’s what caused it...

It seems like Overcooked 2 is in two or three of the punch cards this month as a valid game, so I guess if you unlock two achievements in that, you can get a lot of free points.

Seems like halo games are less frequent than you’d expect but yeah it happens enough so that you probably wouldnt need to wait too long... CDKeys web site usually has them for comparable if not cheaper prices as well, I just glanced the site and didn’t see MCC or HW2, and an overpriced H5 Deluxe currently...

My highlights according the message

 

Top 10,000 for Xbox sports gamerscore (#8394) 

Top 10,000 for Sports gamerscore (#9205)

Funny I haven't really played sports games like I used to so I'm surprised by this

 

Some other site stats 

Total Gamerscore #35,289

Total number of achievements won #34,724

When you click the “play new games and earn points” punch card one of the eligible games is The Long Dark so won’t be surprised if that’s on gamepass soon

I'm surprised they're still doing the HDMI port to let other consoles or whatever be played on it because I don't know anybody who uses it personally. Also WHY just 3 USB ports? The 360 Slim had 5 and people were happy!

 

Edit: Nevermind! AMD are a bunch of lying liars.

Are you sure it’s not 2 hdmi out ports so you can use it on 2 TVs at once?

I’m surprised only 2 USB ports. Where am I supposed to connect all my external hard drives? Guess I’ll use a splitter.

Front of the console has a normal USB port so similar'ish layout to the One. And my gaming setup is one normal ass 29" TV on the bottom and the 55" on top so technically I'm not against the idea of a weird ass DS layout for the XXXBox.

New thread yay!
Hi, I’m Ziggy, and I’m an addict.

Along with other posted ideas for the new GP quests, I saw Demon’s Tilt on a few lists, so might wait until tomorrow and get those and the weekly thing done.


Bloomy, do you have this YouTube link set with a shortcut? Not that I’d blame you in the slightest, since it has many uses.

A lot of 4K Blu-ray players have 2 HDMI outs so you can use one strictly for audio. No way one of them is an input as the amount of people still watching their cable TV through their XB1 is probably pretty low.

There's a new batch of quests today.  Witcher 3, Minecraft, earn achievements in new / ID @ Xbox / PC titles.  Guess the folks at MS running the quests had full weeks off for the holidays.

 

Yeah those new ones in the MS Rewards app. Outside of the rewards app they had that other experiment around mid November to mid December that had stuff like play a GamePass game launch the GamePass app for daily quests, then get 15 stealth kills in Dishonored 2 for a weekly example, then do x amount of quests for the monthly. There was a ton of them so was a nice chunk of points. I was hoping they would bring it back at the start of the month to just be on the calendar cycle.

Nope.  It wasn't even in my Chrome address bar for recent sites visited.

Wasn't that an Insider thing?  I've never signed up for it, so I didn't have those quests.

I'm a bit surprised they're keeping 2 HDMI ports. I wasn't aware some video players had a second out for audio, and that doesn't sound like something MS would do. 

 

Of course the obvious take away is that one is for HDMI-In like the One. I'm just curious what the percentage of users are that actually use that port. I know of a couple people on my friends list that do use as a pass through for their TV or whatever, but I think most of the others don't.

 

It would be interesting if they were both Video Out. Dual monitors seems unlikely, put maybe a second HDMI could provide an output when using a VR headset. A quick look shows the Vive uses both HDMI and USB to connect to a PC, rather than some proprietary port.

New year, new thread. Thanks as always, Bloomy! I really want to knock down my backlog as well. But, I'm literally in the same boat as gamegirlpocket with game wants and that switch pro and next gen on the horizon, plus my wife planning a Disney world trip.....yeah. My wallet is fooked.

I can't wait to see the weekly deals thread at the end of the year with 3 deal lists from 2 or 3 systems offering games for 4 different platforms

Just a reminder that Awesome Games Done Quick started yesterday. As usual the winter version here is raising money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. There is much more Xbox representation than normal this year, though they're pretty short, and there aren't any planned Halo runs.

 

https://www.twitch.tv/gamesdonequick

 

Upcoming Xbox runs for the week:

Blazing Chrome

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (arcade)

Mushihime-sama Futari 1.01

Tony Hawk's Project 8

 

Full schedule:

https://gamesdonequick.com/schedule

 

Right now they're playing the original Fallout.

A few of us were talking about Elder Scrolls Online and I bought a sealed gold edition from eBay. There was discussion that the gold dlc was expired but I literally just redeemed it successfully!

Yeah even though Phil has pretty much closed the door on VR, maybe some future proofing to that. I wonder if it's even a tit for tat with Sony since they almost surely are still supporting VR and would probably be far easier to just have two HDMI out than the current boondoggle of a box and different wires they have going with the PSVR on the PS4.

Having recently gotten a PSVR, that whole box thing is the most annoying part of it. I had to put that box on an outlet that is on a light switch. And if that light switch accidentally turned off, not only can I not play my PSVR, I can’t play the PS4 by itself because the HDMI goes between the two.

Stupid thing to complain about and I could change some things around to avoid it but the whole box HDMI thing is just a half-assed approach.
